The Amazing Race – Does Phil’s Eyebrow Need To Be Insured?

Phil Keoghans amazing eyebrow raise

The doctors were both facing their demons on this leg of the race. One was scared of heights, and had to go on a gondolier, and the other was a vegetarian who had to eat a sheep’s head. Lucky for her her friend ate the meat, as the acrophobic would have another height issue at the Roadblock if she had been the one rapel off the bridge.

But on the bright side they took the fast forward and were at the pit stop first, with a good time lead for the next leg of the race.

I am loving the episodes in Scandinavia, it is just such a stunning part of the world, however living there must be tough in winter.

Brooke the home shopping host is really irritating me as she does not shut up. Is anyone else having this issue with her?

And if she says “Girl you’ve got this again” when she flicks yet another difficult roadblock to her partner I am going to scream. I cannot wait until Brook has to take a s**t sandwich on a roadblock. (By the way I had written that prior to seeing the preview of next week’s episode).

Vicki and Nick are so dumb what do they think it “Fast Forward Taken” means? She did the rapel but then she is so stupid she probably does not have the neurones to feel fear. Also this team cannot do numbers for reason Nick thought they were going to come in second but they were sixth.

The Asian father/son team chose the boats in the detour and finished quickly, but the bike detour was quicker and Gary & Mallory were second to the pitstop.

Jill and Thomas a dating couple were starting to fracture,  as as soon as anything goes wrong they start screaming  at each other.

I don’t know why the beach volleyball girls did the boat over the bikes as they could have made up time. However they were the last team to arrive, and they were eliminated from the race, which was a pity as I thought they were contenders.

Maybe Phil needs to insure his eyebrow as it is a major part of his appeal it will be asking for its own dressing room soon.

ICK. I could not have eaten that sheep head.

Scandinavia is gorgeous, but miserable weather. I saw a doco on global warming once, and some scandinavian fringe dwellers explained that they would really prefer warmer weather, although they understood it wouldnt’ be good for the planet overall.

the tasks are a bit sanitised these days aren’t they – the bike lock one was a bit fake. Why not just get them to ride the bikes from point A to point B. Or carry school books or something.

That vegetarian doc really took one for the cause – not only eating meat but a sheep’s head with eyeball. Euuw. She deserves to win on that basis alone.

Loved that Phil’s eyebrow got a bit of a cameo this week. Obviously Phil remains a botox free zone.

Otherwise, I thought it was a bit boring, stunning scenery aside.

I thought it was going to vanish up his own fundamental orifice, but ALAS……..
And ALACK the the blondes are gone SIGH. Might watch till father and son go, as I think they are the least irritating of the gauche mob left over

Hey RR it was nice of you to scan the photo that you have on your dressing table!
PS father/son for the win. I like them.

I’m back! My husband decided not to watch the catch up episodes. This season is lacking something. The tasks seem pretty basic. Thanks for the recaps RR, I always enjoy a good laugh!
