"Doing the Race means a lot to me," Victoria said.
"And to do it with my sister, like, means the world to me. Because we really are best friends now, and I'm telling you, we were not close at all before. We never even told each other that we loved each other ever before."
The Amazing Race broadcast began with the eight remaining teams learning they must fly to Paris, France for the next leg of the Race.
"Dating Couple" Will Jardell and James Wallington departed the Pit Stop in Paraguay, South American at 1:41AM.
Will and James learned they must fly over 6,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Paris, which is home to iconic landmarks and beautiful chateaus, including the Domaine De Chantilly in Chantilly, France, where teams would find their next clue 30 miles outside the city.
The teams had to drive themselves to Domaine De Chantilly, but Will was confident he'd be able to handle a stick shift and drive the car.
Michelle and Victoria left in second place at 1:55AM, and they were followed by "Dating Couple" Leo Brown and Alana Folsom at 2:35AM and then "Pro Volleyball Players" Riley McKibbin and Maddison McKibbin in fourth place at 2:39AM.
On Riley and Maddison's heels were "Siblings" Eswar Dhinakaran and Aparna Dhinakaran at 3:11AM.
The first flight out was set to arrive in Paris at 7:50AM, and the following teams managed to book seats on it: Leo and Alana, Michelle and Victoria, Riley and Maddison, and Will and James.

The second flight out was scheduled to land at 8:05AM, and "Sisters" Kaylynn Williams and Haley Williams got stuck on that flight as well as "Former NFL Stars" DeAngelo Williams and Gary Barnidge, Eswar and Aparna, and "Married Parents" Chee Lee and Hung Nguyen.
Once the first flight landed, Will struggled to drive the manual car out of the airport, and Leo -- who was driving behind them -- called them "incompetent."
Leo eventually got so frustrated waiting behind Will and James on a ramp heading out of the airport that he hopped in Will's car and drove it out of the airport.
Leo explained the guys had been blocking the ramp, and he was still sour about the fact Will and James had previously U-Turned himself and Alana.
Leo didn't want to come across "petty or vindictive," but he said he wouldn't forget what happened at that U-Turn.
"I hope it gets them eliminated," Leo told the cameras.
James tried to comfort Will and calm him down as Will didn't know how to work the gas and essentially panicked. Will was apparently putting the stick into third gear instead of first gear, and so once he figured that out, they were good to go.
Riley and Maddison arrived at their next clue in first place and were instructed to complete a Roadblock task.
For the Roadblock, one member from each team was required to study antique pieces of art and find a living person walking around the art gallery who matched the depicted in one of the paintings.
There were nine "partygoers" who matched nine paintings -- every detail -- but there was an overwhelming number of paintings in the gallery.
Once a Racer made a match, he or she would have to take note of the artist's name below the painting to receive his or her next clue.
Riley took on the Roadblock task since Maddison said he pays attention to detail, and then he was followed by Alana, James, Hung, Aparna, Victoria, and Gary.
Michelle and Victoria got lost on the way to the art gallery and had to stop and ask for directions. Kaylynn and Haley also got lost, and they knew a Speed Bump awaited them in the leg.
Once Kaylynn and Haley arrived in last place, they had to complete their Speed Bump task before moving on to the Roadblock. The Speed Bump required the girls to clean riding gear for two horses.
Riley and Maddison finished the Roadblock in first place and earned their next clue, which required the teams to travel on foot and then whip up creme chantilly in front of a chef to perfection so it wouldn't fall out of the bowl and then fill up four pies.
Leo and Alana completed the Roadblock in second place, with Will and James right on their heels. Hung finished the Roadblock quickly in fourth place.
Michelle and Victoria leaped ahead by finishing in fifth place, and Aparna really struggled with the task and unfortunately wasted enough time where two teams were able to pass her.
Aparna finally finished the task after her sixteenth attempt, and so they proceeded in seventh place.
Kaylynn opted to try the art-gallery Roadblock, and once she completed it, the girls proceeded in the leg in last place.
After Riley and Maddison finished their pies, they were instructed to drive one hour back to Paris to Musee Des Arts Forains, an art museum where they'd receive their next clue.
It then became time for a second Roadblock task in which one player from each team must win three carnival games to receive their next clue. The players who did not do the first Roadblock in the leg were asked to take on the second.
Riley and Maddison maintained their lead in first place, and their next set of clues told them to race to the Pont Des Arts bridge, which would serve as the Pit Stop for this leg of the Race.
Hung and Chee finished the second Roadblock task in second place, and then Leo and Alana got the job done. Will and James left the Roadblock in fourth place.
Meanwhile, Michelle and Victoria got lost driving to the Musee Des Arts Forains, but Kaylynn and Haley didn't appear to know where they were going either.
Michelle and Victoria complained they were only two kilometers from their destination but had been driving for hours already, and they nearly broke down into tears.
Kaylynn and Haley made it to the second Roadblock in seventh place. The girls were pretty sure they were in last place, but Michelle and Victoria were nowhere to be found.
Michelle and Victoria were well aware they were in last place once it became time to do the carnival games. Although they were pretty deflated, they tried to keep a positive attitude when racing to the Pit Stop.
Riley and Maddison arrived at the Pit Stop and met Phil in first place. For winning the leg, they received a five-night trip to Vietnam.
Hung and Chee finished the leg in second place, and then Leo and Alana were right behind them in third.
Will and James completed the leg in fourth place, and they were followed by DeAngelo and Gary in fifth place and Eswar and Aparna in sixth place.
Kaylynn and Haley stepped on the Pit Stop mat in seventh place, and they were totally shocked to still be in the Race. The girls were overjoyed and didn't believe someone could have "screwed up" even worse than they had.
Victoria and Michelle eventually made it to the Pit Stop and night had fallen. Phil broke the news that Michelle and Victoria had been eliminated from the Race.
