The Amazing Race
The eight teams fly from Bali, Indonesia to Hanoi, Vietnam where they play some human Chinese Chess — like Wizards’ Chess!, the Harry Potter fan in me exclaims — and make some delicious-looking pho. YUM! Also, find out what happens to Dave and Connor, the former of whose physical condition has been deteriorating throughout the Race due to a torn Achilles tendon. Read my recap here!
The nine remaining teams in The Amazing Race Season 22 drive jet boats, speed through obstacle courses, and get covered with molasses — and feathers… and manure… — in New Zealand. Also, check out how a team member’s debilitating injury affects the team’s chances in the Race in my recap of Episode 3.
Well, the Amazing Race Season 21 is now over, and the final minutes of the finale episode actually gave me chills. (Why? I’ll explain in my recap; I don’t want to give anything away here!) The last task before the pit stop was an extremely difficult memory challenge that took teams more than two and a half hours to complete. Overall, what a phenomenal two hours of television and a phenomenal season overall. No wonder this show has won a gazillion Emmy awards; it’s the best. Love it.
This is the second-to-last week of The Amazing Race 21! Aww. In Episode 10, the four remaining teams go to Rafael Nadal’s stomping grounds in Spain, dress up as bulls to run around matadors, and finally drive themselves for the first time this season. Too bad one team fails at driving stick-shift. Check out my recap here.
Episode 9 of The Amazing Race Season 21 brings the five remaining teams to Amsterdam. This leg has a Fast Forward, a double U-Turn, and even a Switchback! (Anyone remember the infamous ditch vaulting task from Season 12?) Oh, and of course, FLIGHT DRAMA! Lots going on in this episode. Check out my recap here.
Here’s my recap of this week’s episode of The Amazing Race, Season 21! Episode 8 resolves Episode 7′s cliffhanger ending and continues into Leg #8. One team member has a wardrobe malfunction that makes me laugh out loud, and Stalin and Lenin rise from the dead for a super classy cocktail party. Good times. Also, did James and Abba ever find the lost passport? Check out what happened here!
