The seventeen remaining teams head to Paris, where they must partake in an art competition and traverse the catacombs before racing to a final stop at the Louvre. The rivalry between two teams further heats up while two others rather concentrate on having fun their own way while someone ends up regretting the previous challenge as their stomach nearly ruins things for them and their partner. Two rivals hope to use others misfortunes to their own advantage but ultimately don't cross the line in time, sending them sailing.

Plot

Devin and Carrie Moped

The Best Friends are the first to get onto their moped.

The episode begins at the Moroccan Chill Zone, where the contestants must race on mopeds to an airport, departing in the order in which they placed in the previous episode. Upon reaching the airport, the contestants must then book a flight to Paris, where their next challenge lies. The Police Cadets try to get an early lead by overtaking the Best Friends, only to be overtaken themselves by the Ice Dancers. MacArthur admits that the Ice Dancers had started getting on her nerves due to her being unable to comprehend their incessant smiling. While Father and Son do well at first, they fall behind after the Fashion Bloggers throw a carpet at them, due to the weight of the carpet slowing them down. Meanwhile, the Vegans decide to pedal their moped instead, not wanting to waste release fuel that would pollute the environment.

Geoff Drawing Brody

Brody poses for his caricature.

Having booked their flights, the first and second planes depart for Paris. After landing, the teams must take a cab to the Eiffel Tower. Although the Ice Dancers are initially excited due to being in the lead, this does not last long when they receive competition from the Police Cadets, who crash into their car in order to slow them down. The Police Cadets overtake the Ice Dancers and get to their tip first. The teams must now compete in a "Botch or Watch" in which the person who didn't eat the stew has to draw a caricature of their partner, which must be approved by an artist to get their next Tip. The Surfers Dudes are the first to complete their caricature and receive their next Tip. The next part of the challenge involves navigating through the catacombs underneath Paris and find a block of Roquefort cheese. The teams must then ride down the river with the cheese to get to their next Chill Zone. While some teams are finishing up their drawings, the Fashion Bloggers get a flat tire and decide to use the moment to do some late night shopping. Meanwhile, the Tennis Rivals are far behind the other contestants, due to their cab driver not knowing where they wanted to go after they go to sleep. Kitty becomes unhappy with Emma's mean attitude, but to her relief, she does allow Kitty to do the challenge by herself. As more teams take off into the catacombs, the Police Cadets get an early lead due to MacArthur's exceptional sense of smell. 

Owen Eats Cheese

Owen eating his team's cheese raft.

The Reality TV Pros have to take a small detour, due to Owen needing to use the bathroom, while some of the other teams begin to lose their sense of direction. By this stage, the Vegans and Tennis Rivals have finally completed their caricatures. The Tennis Rivals decide to follow the Vegans, believing they know where the cheese is although they are misled by Owen's stink. The Ice Dancers and Police Cadets are the first ones to find the cheese, and fiercely compete against each other to reach the finish line before the other. The Ice Dancers haste to get ahead causes them to forget their oars, so they paddle using their feet. Despite their efforts, the Cadets come in first place, much to Josee's anger. A few of the teams encounter trouble while riding their rafts, with the Daters losing their oars, while the Fashion Bloggers try to balance their shopping bags while riding on the cheese.

A bit sad

The Tennis Rivals make their departure.

Although the Reality TV Pros manage to arrive at the Chill Zone before a few of the other teams, Don, who refers to the team as "Noah and his Ark", gives them a twenty-minute penalty due to them not riding the cheese raft, as Owen ate it. As the final few teams arrive, the Tennis Rivals are the only ones left, due to taking excessively long when they decide to carry their cheese rather than roll it. They arrive at the Chill Zone just as the Reality Pros' penalty runs out, leading both teams to make a dive onto the Chill Zone. While it appears to be a tie, Don points out that Gerry's foot is not on the carpet, and comes to the decision that the Tennis Rivals are eliminated. After Gerry and Don argue, Gerry finally accepts his fate. They believe their time on the show was a disaster, but are happy to have gotten the chance at some publicity and new supporters.
