Amazing Race – Finally! Hobbits
Black is Sooo Slimming
And they're off... rushing around Russia (sorry) doing some character development (which is secret editor speak for "we got a mostly boring episode here... hey, why don’t we put Phil in his underpants?") which does, indeed, all lead to the gang freezing their snacks off with only underpants to layer against that Siberian chill.
Good Afternoon Race Fans...
(aka "The show, in as few words as possible!")
They’re kick’en it Siberia Style (which means, freezing your ass off, on a train). It’s trans-Siberian-rail-ways to Nova-something-ski with a giant "there’s only one train" bunch up, erasing all hint of a lead for the leaderboard. Cab time at the destination for a "where is this place?" adventure to a Detour involving lost Russian brides, and giant snow gobbling monster trucks. We go from the drunk happy mid-life-crisis-in-glass-of-vodka crowd at last weeks wood-stacking action to the drunk petulance of youth as our Russian backdrop. The gang is either finding a tall-and-gorgous-white-dress-and-everyth
Ok... at some point I actually scribbled down a note that the reds were showing actual "niceness".
All the jokes I was making when the Hobbits got in the Lada and had to figure out if the seat pushed forward enough... lol.
Yeah... Tammy and Victor will have curried no favour from the collected racers and I’m kinda hoping that it comes back to bite them... but you know what they say... all’s fair in love and RACING FOR MONEY. They were figuratively biting the hands that were trying to feed them with team play during the "where the heck are we?" stages of today’s race leg.
The Exceptionally Pathetic
Christie, the less face-lifted of the two flight attendants, was all indignant after some drunk Russian boys they attempted to get info from touched her ass and asked her for her name... Geez... she should have pepper sprayed him. Because, you know, that never happens to blond American woman lost on the streets of Russia with a camera crew chasing her around.
Lucky ducks... but at least it wasn’t the black chicks that got the "non-elimination". Save total elimination for those two. Total whiners man...
Wohoo... deaf boy and his mom (I wondered briefly if his sign-language was totally fake and mom just makes up all the shit she says ‘for him’. :D). They get a "travelocity trip with the gnome" for being first... and get to watch Phil try to talk in sign language again.
Yeah... it’s Deaf Boy for the second place disappointment with the Reds taking the glory. I’d have said "Mel and Mike" but you just know they’re going to blow something soon...
