At the beginning of the episode, I tried to call it that Kentucky would not last long in the game since the one guy was missing a lot of teeth and the other one gets car sick. Boy was I wrong! They would have come in first place if one of them hadn’t doubted himself on the road block. I’ll just shut up now about Kentucky and check out the chupacabra that was hanging out in the desert.
The teams started off from the pit stop at 2am. The Big Brother team made the startling declaration that this race was more difficult than Big Brother. Really? You mean traveling and completing tasks compared to sitting around is more difficult? We also learned that the gun girls didn’t tell the other teams what they did. Everyone thought they were kindergarten teachers, not federal agents. Sneaky! All the teams arrived in the town square at night, but had to get their next clue from a courier in the next morning so they were all caught up again. The courier did show up wearing some awesome pants to hand out the next clue.
It was a detour where teams had to choose between assembling a solar panel only using pictures as their directions and then boil a tea kettle filled with water to get their next clue or gather some firewood and clay, load it on a donkey, and deliver it all to a local pottery shop for their next clue. Everyone chose the solar panel except the border agents. One of the border agents was getting very stressed out since they couldn’t find their detour while they kept driving by everyone else making the solar panels, even though the other one kept saying that it was only 8 am and it would take a while for the solar panels to heat up enough to boil water.
Meanwhile, the solar panel people had some issues putting their panels together. Big Brother girl said, “Sorry, I’m just a girl.” This makes me immediately not like her. The girl with the army guy told him to quit being “crabby pants.” The girl with the big arms guy got frustrated and yelled, “Son of a monkey’s uncle!” Then someone else talked about “shenanigans.” It was a good montage of goofy words. The guidos cut themselves on their solar panel and ran to the cousins to get some help. The girls showed them how to do something that the guidos hadn’t figured out, which backfired later when the guidos finished first and ran right by the girls without helping them. The cousins learned their lesson after that. The clowns had to go run and ask another team for help and they were told there were pictures on the box. They hadn’t seen them. Oh clowns.
Then, I was amazed at the Kentucky team. They were one of the last ones to get started and the first ones to finish. They said they just opened the box, put it together and were done. They made it sound so simple! Shortly after they were done, the border agents, which were the last team to get started on their task were the second team to finish. They had to drop off their supplies right next to a bunch of teams waiting for their water to boil so they made them jealous. The last team to leave the detour was the gun girls team.
After the detour, the teams had to take an 18-hour bus ride to Buenos Aires. The teams ended up on three different buses. The second bus had to stop since something broke the window and the driver put it back together with cardboard and duct tape. That stalled the team on the bus and allowed the last bus to pass them on the road, which contained the cousins and gun girls. Maybe it was the karma from the guidos not helping the cousins back at the solar panels.
After the bus ride, the teams ran into a road block. They had to do some kind of math at a cattle auction. I didn’t pay full attention to what they had to do exactly. The blonde with the Army guy was doing the road block on her own until she decided to work with one of the federal agents. They were done quickly and out of there. The Big Brother girl who apparently can’t do math either was very frustrated while Kentucky was feeling good since “he’s good at figurin’.” Kentucky got a wrong guess, but that’s because he wasn’t rounding something. If he had done that first, he would have finished first. He figured that out after he offered to work with Big Brother, which was more for her benefit than his, since he already knew the answer. They were off before any other teams arrived.
The gun girls and cousins were there and left before the teams from the last bus showed up. The last teams actually got to the road block after the first four teams had already checked into the pit stop. They were pretty far behind. The guido had never “seen these animals before.” Yes, the exotic cow is a sight to behold! The long-hair twin said he was glad his brother had the task since he had “more schooling.” The girl with the big arms guy said that she was used to tuning boys out so she had no problem figuring out the math while ignoring the auction going on around her. The clown guy totally forgot how to divide. The clowns were the last ones to leave the road block well behind any other team. There was no race to the finish line against another team for them. They just hoped for a non-elimination leg.
At the pit stop, the Army guy team came in first place again. They won a trip to Grenada. On the way to the pit stop, the Big Brother girl wanted to go back to their taxi that they had told to wait even though they didn’t need to or something. I’m not sure exactly what happened but she started to cry since Big Brother guy upset her. I’m not sure how since he seems unnaturally calm and she spazzed. When they checked into the pit stop she said that they had got into it a bit and had to work on communicating. I think she needs to work on not randomly crying and wasting time. Other teams also checked into the pit stop, but the most important thing is the clowns came in last and were eliminated. Not so sad for them to go!
- Were you as surprised as I was that the Kentucky team did so well in this leg?
- What was up with the Big Brother melt down on the way to the pit stop? They weren’t even behind other teams and she was freaking out!
- Are you sad that the clowns left or happy like me since they were creepy? What was up with the red noses they just had to wear on the mat?
