The Amazing Race – Karma Is A Bitch
Out of all the mantras Joey and Richard had they did not follow “Do Unto Others”, and they found out that karma is indeed a bitch. However ironically even after what happened to them they still didn’t seem to get it.
Joey and Richard were the first to leave the pitstop in Macau, and head to Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Joey and Richard flew from Macau to Bangkok the rest of the teams went back to Hong Kong and got a direct flight to Johannesburg, however everyone was on the same flight to Port Elizabeth.
My race favourites, Mo and Mos were lamenting they would like to race better so they could be treated like other teams at the pit stop. “Get on and get off”. They had attracted a four hour time penalty in the previous leg for not completing the roadblock, but lucky for them they caught up at the airport. Something they were shocked about.
Teams then drove 300kms to Camdeboo National Park, to get to the Valley of Desolation. The cars were a manual. Which is always good value on this show. Alana and Mel were the team struggling. No wonder there was a rift between the sisters, the way Alana speaks to Mel is not good. Also why berate her for not being able to push the car into third gear, when you are the one actually driving it.
On the way to the detour Joey and Richard got bogged, and all the other teams laughed and did nothing to help them, and they ended up being the last to arrive at the detour.
Detour was either Smash or Bash. In Smash they must throw an African tool to smash plates, and Bash was build a giraffe feeder using only the tools provided. Chris who is an engineer whipped through it as did the father and son team.
Mo and Mos again had difficulty as did Alana and Mel. Joey and Richard started fighting, but were fairly efficient.
The farmers were first to finish detour and then it was to the inevitable bungee jump roadblock that is obligatory in most series of The Amazing Race. They lost their lead when they were pulled over by the police heading to the next stage of the race.
There was a U-Turn and Tyler and Nathan used it against Joey and Richard, this meant they had to go and do the other detour as well. God they are delusional, Richard didn’t think anyone would U-Turn them, then they took it as a compliment that they were U-turned as they thought it showed they were thought to be competitive.
They didn’t think they were u-turned because they were not liked. To be fair on them they were a strong team and nearly caught up with the others.
The teams then had to go and take a goat to a witch doctor and then it was off to the pit stop which was Addo elephant park. The Farmers were the first to arrive just pipping out Tyler and Nathan.
Joey and Richard were last to arrive and were eliminated. I was surprised how well they took it. I will say one positive thing about that team, is they really do appear to be well suited.
I am sure most vilified couple will now be replaced by Chris and Anastasia, as he is foul. I hope she looks over footage of this race and realises that she needs to get rid of him fast.
And finally Mos and Mo said even with everyone helping them they were still struggling on the race. Again they finished second last on the mat, I doubt they will be in for many more weeks.
