We are now down to eight teams and after our top ranking team faced a challenge but was spared with a non elimination leg, they still have their save. The teams hated that they still at the save. Would be really nice if they could edit the opening each week to tell you which team has been eliminated I know that on ANTM they erase each girl that’s been eliminated and I know MTV did the eliminated sign on their competition shows.
This week the teams were faced with a double-u turn and the competition turned real. Teams flew to Marrakech, Morocco, I’ve included a travel video from a travel blogger and will include those in future posts, since amazing race is a travel show this adds a new dimension to it. Also, I plan to by the end of the year start my own Travel Blog : Reality Traveler, all about my adventures traveling in the united states and giving guides to where to visit in the different states.
The Mom and daughter team made a deal with the cab driver price wise great but not so sure the idea to leave your bags in the cab was a great idea, first they don’t know where their detours or roadblocks will take them and it’s best to have your bags at all time. Plus as show in last season its possible to steal a cab and the cabbie might get tired of waiting and take off. This is an unknown variable that showed a bit of stupidity.
ROUTE INFO TASK
Teams had to help set up booths for the restaurant market space, they only get the clue when the cart is ready for business and caution a u turn is ahead had them all hustling to complete the task. All the teams had a hard time controlling the carts and were running into each other as they found their designated spots, one team even ran into a passing buggy. The gay guys were a complete mess leaving things on the floor while other teams had a language barrier. Keith & Whitney were the first ones out of this task. The teams were almost done when Misti & Jim rejoined the group.
Jim & Misti had a speedbump for them before continuing on the race, they had to collect rugs from a store then hang them on a wire in front of a nearby hotel, displaying them for sale. Jim was being a controlling guy taking over carrying the rug, give your wife a little more credit and let her help, yet when she did help she couldn’t handle her part of things.
ROADBLOCK Teams go to the tannery and prepare three hides then take them by bike to shoemaker who will give them a slip for them to go get their clue. They had to collect three goat skins and take the hair off which grossed the women out. Adam had a sense of humor for Bethany” Just like shaving my back”. There were issues with finding the location and teams worked together and Misti had a collision and couldn’t stop saying sorry as she ran into others. Once teams got to the shoemaker it was a pile up of teams. It was a battle of wills at tanner as the mother daughter team got in argument with Keith and Whitney., there was pushing involved by the women on Keith. I am on the couple’s side as the mother daughter have an attitude. DETOUR Twirl Time Teams join the street performers and keep their tassel spinning while the other plays the drums. They had to spin the tassel for a minute while keeping a beat and this was harder than it seemed. Luckily they got to practice upstairs before performing. Several teams lost their beanies while twirling and got smacked in the face which was entertaining especially to the mother daughter team. Kym & Alli got it right on the first try. Keith & Whitney had lots of problems and no one had rhythm looking like crazy people. Tea Time Teams choose a traditional tea set, carry it through the streets to a restaurant and then serve the tea on a tray with one arm an then do a pour. This seemed longer but not as hard as the other one. Misti messed up by using two hands while the surfers practiced beforehand as other teams messed up, this got it right on the first try. The wrestlers didn’t have proper pouring height. They should all look at the other teams or the professionals then they would know the problem. Double U-turn Surfers decide not to u turn as did Kym & Alli. The mother daughter pick had to choose between the two enemies they’ve made so far Jim & Misti or Keith & Whitney, they choose the second option which was a bad move but it helped toward their elimination. The gay guys choose not to U-turn anyone as did Jim & Misti and the Scientists.
