Season 20, Leg 5 “Uglier than a Mud Rail Fence”
The teams were given a Detour in Bavaria, Germany: a choice between “Fairy Tale” and “Champion Male.” In “Fairy Tale,” teams followed a trail of gingerbread, picking up pieces along the way, leading them to a witch's house. Once there, they used the pieces they picked up to make the roof to a gingerbread house to gain their clue. In “Champion Male,” teams had to travel to the Wetz-Stoa Stub'n restaurant and choose a beard enthusiast. They styled his beard to match a champion from the World Beard and Moustache Championships. Once complete, the judge would give them their next clue. Both of the teams received a clue to "find the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty 's castle." The clue referred to Neuschwanstein Castle, famous for being the inspiration for one of the most popular Disney films.
