Big Brother alums Derek Xiao and Claire Rehfuss are still doing well on The Amazing Race 34.

As of the latest episode, Derek and Claire have made it to the final six teams, with just four legs left until we learn who won the race around the world.

The full season has already been filmed, allowing the couple to comment on social media as it progresses, but we are going to have to keep tuning in to find out if this will be the latest Big Brother showmance to win the show.

Previously, Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf from Big Brother 19 became winners on a season of The Amazing Race. That couple has since married, and they now have three kids.

Since then, it has become a regular occurrence to see people jump from Big Brother over to The Amazing Race, but none of the successive teams have been able to win the $1 million prize.

Can Derek and Claire make it all the way to the finale mat in first place?

The seventh episode of The Amazing Race 34 just aired, with the leg starting in Jordan and finishing up in France. Teams had to memorize a family tree and rappel down the side of a castle at one stop and then either produce walnut oil or play Medieval games at the second stop.

Derek and Claire finished in third place on this sixth leg, easily gaining safety for another episode. Newlyweds Glenda Roberts and Lumumba Roberts from Georgia ended up being sent home.

Below is a brief clip from Derek and Claire competing on that latest leg. This episode will debut on Wednesday, November 9, at 9/8c on CBS.
