The Amazing Race – London to Ghana
Normally The Amazing Race plus an African destination means reality TV gold, but tonight I thought the episode was a bit ho-hum.
All the teams flew together from London to Accra, Ghana so they were all in the race this leg.
Again this week I felt sorry for Gary and Mallory who two weeks in a row have had some bad luck with transport, this week was a broken down taxi, last leg of the race a flat tyre.
First was the roadblock where they had to sell sunglasses at the markets. Now in these challenges you need to put your blond female team mate in, as they attract far more attention. The home shopping girl and the Mallory sold it fast to the younger homeboy guys. HOwever the anomaly of this theory was Jill who took a long time to make her money.
“Give me a sales challenge, bring it on,” says the homeshopping team, deluding herself that it was her sales ability that made them come out of the roadblock first.
Next was the detour with the choice between fixing an aerial to a roof, or lugging assorted coffins around. Neither of the challenges presented many problems so most people stayed in the order they got there in. So not a lot of suspense.
However we did get to see more of the teams, and the Glee team and the girl doctors look like they are a lot of fun.
The Homeshopping girls game in first, and Andie and Jenna were eliminated.
With the all girl teams taking out first and second place this could be the first season an all girl team wins.
