The Amazing Race – Oman
It appears to be the week of proposals on reality TV shows. Last night was Brenton and Chez on The Block, and tonight Chad proposed to Stephanie on The Amazing Race. Surprisingly she said yes. But then that is why he asked her on the show, as it does make it pretty difficult to decline.
Considering the leg started off pretty bad for them as they slept in and missed their pit stop start time by nearly two hours. Is that the first time anyone has missed their pitstop time?
Anyway it didn’t matter all the groups caught up once they were in Muscat, Oman.
As is the case on this show once you have a bad day it is normally someone elses turn. And on this day it was Mallory and Gary, as they went the wrong way, and got horribly lost.
However the two doctors got lost as well, but they did not seem panicked, which meant they must have known there was a team was behind them.
But at the front of the pack Jill and Thomas, and Chad and Stephanie. Stephanie was on a high after Chad got down on a bended knee, in front of cameras, and the other teams.
They got out of the roadblock first,which was a rapel, then finding a ring in one of the many tea pots. Then on the detour they did the water challenge where teams had to deliver a load of water to a house. Interestingly enough no one did the cooking one, as how long would it take to cook a chicken casserole at least a couple of hours.
Jill and Thomas hit the pit stop first but were penalised 30 minutes for paying a cab driver to show them on a part of the leg, so Chad and Stephanie came in first.
This must be a new rule in the past few seasons, as I have seen it happen on previous series. Obviously the producers close any loop that the contestants come up with each time.
Mallory and Gary were last to arrive and were eliminated. Next week it will be interesting to see how far behind the pack the doctors are.
Points to Brooke and Claire for jumping on Phil at the pitstop.
