Amazing Race – The Special Olympics Reality Season
The Unfortunate Episode
And they're off... to screw around with cabs, subways, and statues in Moscow. And because I’m sooooo disappointed in the way this epi turned out... I’m writing this under protest. :D
Good Afternoon Race Fans...
(aka "The show, in as few words as possible!")
Wake up in Moscow and head off to be Slappy’s play things. Everybody has to find a docked sub and get a clue from this dude that had a role in Red October then head off to some park with a whole bunch of older monuments to dead Russians. Road Block is all about counting and ... this seems to be a problem for Dallas. Worst of all... when he’s done, he freaking leaves a fanny pack in the cab with their money and passports. The show is over right there and then... but they draw it out trying to edit up some kind of competition for last place. And yeah... the frat IDIOTS get a non-elim last week... but Toni and Dallas get hosed this week. So unfair. Anyways... the racers go from Road Block “counting Lenin’s and Stalin’s" to a Detour that has them taking subways and tramways all over town to find a babushka and get snack from her to read a clue on the snack wrapper. This takes ‘em to a pony in a park and another clue... unless you’re the frats... in which case you have a speed-bump that requires to to be evaluated for a dance routine. Thinking back to Mr. Cannot March, I kind figured this was his Achilles heal ... but alas (earwax) nope. After several attempts... they get past their "bump". Meanwhile, Toni and Dallas ride the metro to save some non-existent money only to find that they have to go back and do it again by cab ... Donny and Marie come in first and get another romantic vacation for them to go be creepy on... the Cheater and his Drag Queen come in second... and the freak’en frats come in third. That’s the line up for the final three and the BOLT FOR THE CASH.
Waves goodbye to Toni and Dallas.
