Muscles in Brussels on 'The Amazing Race' (VIDEO)

'The Amazing Race' 19There was no room to hide on this week's episode of 'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) when the Racers visited the European Parliament Building in Brussels, Belgium. Sadly for them, they weren't there to learn about the political machinations of the European Union, or to sample such Belgian gastronomic delights as beer, or mussels and fries with mayonnaise.

Instead, the teams got a taste of the favorite pastime of Belgium's most famous son -- no, not Tintin or Jacques Delors -- Jean-Claude Van Damme: Bodybuilding! It was time to break out the shaving foam, breathe in and strike a pose wearing nothing but a smile and a ridiculously small and shiny posing pouch.

As Andy gamely applied bronzer to fellow snowboarder Tony's lower regions he sighed "Our friendship has hit a whole new level." Former NFL tight end (no pun intended) Marcus may have been the only one who actually enjoyed the experience, saying "I really got into it." He was rewarded for his efforts with some very enthusiastic whistling from the ladies in the crowd.

Like the bodybuilding aficionados in the audience we here at AOL TV wholeheartedly applaud the teams and their performances. To see what 'TAR' host Phil Keoghan looks with one eyebrow raised and his shirt off, check out our exclusive pics of the Racers and a surprisingly buff Phil getting all Schwarzeneggered-up.

Disgusting that they are reduced to making the contestants wear bikini's and speedos. I was humiliated for them!

Unfortunately we know Bill and Cathi get eliminated, as they were the only couple not shown in the previews of next week.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Unless they pull out yet one more non-elimination leg and just wanted to keep us guessing.
