The Amazing Race – Still in Ghana
Nat and Kat just had one of those hideous days on The Amazing Race, they had cab drivers who got lost going to both the destinations plus one taxi had a breakdown. Surprisingly they did not.
This leg was again in Ghana, and it was OK, not the most exciting episode, nor the most boring. The home shopping hosts were the first to leave the pitstop, the market in Accra to got to the roadblock which was a boxing training challenge.
And most people left in the order they arrived, however Mallory and her father managed to work there way up the pack. I actually quite like Mallory she is quite sweet, and what she said about the kids in Ghana was true. She said this is the life they know, and my life is the one I know.
The best part of the detour was seeing the American’s try and identify where Ghana actually was. To be fair I didn’t have a clue, but if I was flying there I would have ducked into the airport bookship to look at a map.
As predicted the tattooed pair from LA struggled with the geography quiz, but then the Princeton Glee boys did as well. They said “Princeton really is a good school”. They ran a great leg and came in first on the pitstop.
The other highlights of the episode:
- The number of teams that did not read the clue correctly and had to go back and get the building supplies was at least over 50% of the teams;
- All the teams who could not work out the language detour with the code and had to go off and do the bicycle wheel challenge;
- The beach volleyball girls are a class act, as are the doctors they don’t get upset with each other; and
- The fact the at this pitstop they will stop for over 24 hours to do some work on the school.
It was a non-elimination round, lucky for the asian father and son team. Next week the Arctic.
