Amazing Race 6 Update!!

Amazing Race 6 Update!!</h2>

A Little Research... nudge nudge...say n’more.



It's all about...  freaking Kendra.  I mean... fine, ok, other things happened, besides Kendra. We have clown cars, Grace (Rebecca) clowning around, a cab driver that bails on the human penis (Jonathan), human rockets and, according to Kendra... not quite enough research!



Good Afternoon Racefans...
(aka “The show, in as few words as possible!")
Out of the gate... the Brandenburg gate;
~ head for a clue at Checkpoint Charlie.
Rebecca: "is Checkpoint Charlie a code name for Gestapo?" ... wtf?
~ Off to the 1936 Olympic Stadium, and get your name on a sign-up list.
and if your fat and stupid... like, um... Gus... you could walk there. And yes, I know... Rebecca and Adam walked as well... I rest my case.
~ it's bungee rocket time as a Road Block.
Rebecca to Adam: "You're not doing it pussy boy..." BWAAHAHAHAHAHA!
Gus to camera: "It's never good to see your children take risks..." um... so what the fuck are you doing on Amazing Race?
~ airport mayhem and a flight to Budapest, Hungary.
Jonathan is like a bad-will ambassador ... pissing people off where ever he goes. He totally blows it at a ticket agent for... nothing really.
~ clue it with an absolute death trap for a mini car and drive to Castle Egar. 
Adam tries to drive 'cross country in ... first gear? He blows his engine. But, despite his prediction, it sadly did not in fact explode.
~ Detour... impossible catapult thing or move a cannon, and some balls, up a hill. Dude... geee, wonder what they'll do?
Now, I think it was Aaron, or Freddy... one of them goes genius and uses his pack to carry the cannon balls up the hill... and then proceeds to carry his pack in his arms???
~ clue it to downtown Budapest to a net cafe and listen to the AOL voice say "you've got clue".
~ and then something else... except we don't know what it is because CBS decided to chop this show into two parts... geeeezus bloody 'ell... wtf is up with that?  It ends there till next week... bah! Oh, and it looks like Lori and Bilbo are totally screwed. Missed enough trains to have to wait for tomorrows first run.

The Good
Ok... the Deborah Messing clone... aka Grace... aka Rebecca... is, hands down, the show's fun bobby.  She's absolutely torturing Adam (yeah!!!) and always manages to get the sound bite... Carrying the cannon balls up the hill in the detour; "wow, these are some dirty balls."

So Kendra is kind of a pathetic diva... right?  So watching her turn blue and writhe in spin city after her Bungee Rocket was some fine television viewing.

Bungee Rocket: feet tied to a super stretched bungee cord from the top of a tall crane, and when the pin is pulled it yanks you way the hell up there at break neck speeds and then drops you upside down on the bungee cord.

The Bad
When Kendra and the Fredsters "depart first..." they get the clue and she's like "so do you want to go back to the hotel... we can do some research..."  Fred is completely boggled... "How can you not understand this..." as in, here's the clue, lets get going!! But nooooo. She wants to go back to the hotel... So, either she was really frigging bagged and wanted to crash or she had the horns of a mastodon on and Fred was just not taking a... clue. Of course, when she goes for it again at the Guard Post clue "Can we do some research?", I'm really questioning her mental capacity. This, and her utter disdain for the people of Senegal kinda leaves her as one of those crummy stereotypes...

The Ugly
Ok, so smarty pants Gus and his lap dog of a daughter totally snooker Jonathan and Vic (although they can't possibly know this) by stopping to buy their flight tickets at an agency desk instead of the airport airline desk.  Jonathan cannot stand this. He has no idea... all he sees is that he was at the airline desk before Gus and was refused a ticket, yet Gus and Hera walk on the plane.  Thus begins this week’s foray into the darkness that surrounds Jonathan. He goes "nasty american tourist" on the airline agent, he yells at Vic like she was a co-conspirator in ruining his day, and when he catches up with Gus on a train ride, he freak'en harasses Gus telling him "It's your fault... you did this to me!".  Jonathan was lucky... A lesser man would have jumped out of that chair and punched Jon-boy in the face... as in Gus... only a whole lot "lesser" of Gus because he couldn't jump his round ass out of any chair.

Jonathan gets pulled over by the cops for not having his lights on and he ends up getting them to lead him towards the castle! (ahhh!).  I was hoping they were gonna rough him up a bit and maybe take him in the woods but I suppose the camera men were a bit of a deterrent.  Fortunately for all of us, there was a moment of happiness when Jonathan was - typically - over flowing with "go go go go go go go go go go" to a cab driver.  The cabbie finally pulls over, gets out and says "fuck this noise" ... except in Hungarian. :)

The Exceptionally Pathetic
The Editors of the show... for not managing to put this episode out as a single show.  Grrrrrrrr!!!!!

Oh, and Adam too... for good measure.

The Losers
Well we don't know this do we??? because the show mysteriously became two episodes long. !! :) Lori and Dildo are sleeping in the rain, on a bench, outside a train station.  Little Hungarian Pixies will sneak up on them in the night and tattoo giant "L's" on their foreheads.  A bad draw in the parking-lot-of-doom left them stranded waiting on a replacement clown car. Now they're waiting for tomorrows train... Meanwhile, everyone else is going to be clicking for dollars in the Net Cafe.

The Winners…
Man... Kendra and Freddy are doing great... because Freddy is an all around great competitor, and despite the fact that Kendra is so much fucking high maintenance dead weight.  They were leading but the "semi episode" ends with a "bunch up" at the internet cafe that only opens at 10:00 pm.
