The Amazing Race – From LA to Chile

It would be the gay guy who would recognise Miss Teen Carolina, and he did a great imitation of her YouTube catastrophe.

Here is the real thing.

Let’s face it the first episode of most series of The Amazing Race are pretty boring, they spend a quarter of the episode introducing the contestants, another quarter getting to the airport, and their is rarely a detour. Also you only get snippets of the contestants personalities.

Tonight the first leg of The Amazing Race was from LA to Chile. But first they had to get to the airport by public transport, a bit of a challenge in LA, but it probably means there won’t be the usual near misses on the freeway as they all race to get on the first flight.

However not that it mattered for this group, as the first plane had mechanical failure and they all ended up on the same flight.

The cowboys Jet and Cord are being portrayed as the dumbasses, but really your at LA Airport and they don’t have Chiliean money, so they get Brazilian. They were a bit surprised once they were not able to use it there.

Brandy one of the lesbian couple is being portrayed as the scrag particularly when she said she was praying for a mechanical dysfunction.

The roadblock was walking across cables, most people were unfazed by it except for Brandy and Adrian.

Caite (teen queen) and Brent were the first out of the roadblock. This pair look a tad thick particularly Brent.

Adrian who is part of the childhood sweethearts who had a fear of heights, fell and could not get back up so he had to start again from the beginning.

The next challenge was painting a part of a house. Jordan and Jeff who were on US Big Brother Season 11 were first to the pit stop. Jordan looks like she could be a liability to the team, but then they did win a leg something a lot of teams don’t achieve.

I was surprised Brent and Caite came in second but they incurred a 30 minute penalty because they did not get the vernicular up the hill.

Hilarious that father and daughter team, Steve and Allie  went inside a house and started painting much to the bemusement of the other painters, and they pointed the wall and then said have you got a clue? Uh oh.

But they were not the only team painting the wrong house Michael and Louie started painting the wrong place as well.

Jordan and Dan also incurred a penalty of 15 minutes because they lost a paint brush.

And back at the cables Adrian fell off again. Phil went and met them at the roadblock and Adrian and Dan were eliminated.

The big surprise was Jet and Cord coming in third, once they get the currency issues sorted could they be a force to be reckoned with?

enjoyed the ep

couldnt stop laughing when Father/daughter were painting the inside of the house and the translation underneath from the guy was “I have no idea who these people are and why they are painting my house”

I have watched most of this series (don’t worry, no spoilers!), and it has been a highly enjoyable and humorous season. Some great and contrasting characters on the teams. And my final words: Oh My Gravy! Hope everyone enjoys watching it!

There were some very funny moments in this episode, especially the house painting incident. Plus the team who mistakenly painted someone’s outside wall. And did you notice one of the blondies, it may have been Jordan tell the guy at the airport ticket counter that they were headed to China? China, Chile …close I know…just like Brazilian and Chilean money!

My only gripe is many of the recent series seem to have gone straight to South America. I’d like to see a few more different places this time and less repition to challenges.

I laughed out loud at the house painting by the daughter and father team. Something I could see me and my Dad getting caught up in
