The Amazing Race – The Episode Of The Dating Couples
Tonight was the episode where we saw how the dating couples were coping with the race thus far. Jill and Thomas, and Nick and Vicky seem to be tracking ok, but for Chad and Stephanie things were not looking so peachy in what was a trying leg.
Chad as we have seen glimpses of in previous is a douche, and I don’t know why Stephanie is so in love with him, his ego is larger than his IQ.
Tonight the teams had to get from Norway to St Petersburg, and for Mallory who had never been on a train before it was an amazing first trip. All the teams arrived in Russia at the same time.
However it all started going pear shaped after that. The detour was diabolical this week a nice change from some of the easy challenges in Norway.
They had the choice between Classical Music where they had to listen to three composistions and then try and identify it with the live pianists. The kicker was handing in all three scores at the same time.
The other choice was classic cinema where they had to find the film matching what is on the screen, and it was like finding a needle in a haystack.
Jill and Thomas were the first to complete the detour, and in the end the cinema one was quicker to complete then the music one. In fact most of the teams ditched the music one to go to the film studio.
I note Brook the home shopping host didn’t try and plant a kiss on the Russian guy at the film studio, something she has done in most of the other legs of the race.
Chad and Stephanie were just randomly picking out music sheets and Chad was angry, in the end he had to take the back seat which apparently he did not want to. I hope Stephanie reads the signs and leave him. Particularly as he said after the baboushka roadblock he said keep the outfit you can clean the house with it back home. Nice!
Jill and Thomas quickly blew their lead by getting lost again so Brook and Claire arrived at the roadblock first.
At the roadblock they had to dress as a baboushka and plant potatoes and top with manure.
Brook got lost finding the field, and had an episode about getting manure on her, that compared to getting a watermelon in the face like her partner Claire is nothing.
Nick and Vicki were not having a great day they were having issues with both detours, but finally after returning to the music one they got through.
Kevin stuffed up and told his Dad the pit stop was not across the street from the monument and missed coming first on the leg, so Jill and Thomas won the trip to Brazil.
Brook and Claire were team number two with Michael and Kevin coming in third.
Back at the roadblock the girls were having trouble finding the wheel barrows.
Mallory was raced off by a fifty year old russian but had a blond moment saying she couldn’t understand his Russian or Swedish.
For Nick and Vicky they were unable to catch up and were last to arrive. However I was glad it wasn’t an elimination leg as even they were having a really difficult day they handled it with dignity and without screaming at each other. They deserved a second chance.
