The Amazing Race – Prague
Tyler and Nathan the two male models have been running a strong race, however with news the next stop on The Amazing Race Australia was going to be Amsterdam, the other teams must have been hoping they might stop in a cafe.
All the teams got on the same plane, but Dave and Kelly and the father and son team were smart enough to take the train into the city to get to the applebol stand first. Didn’t the other teams realise in a city where bicycle is king, that easing car traffic flow is not a priority.
I did laugh at Dave saying “he would take one for the team” if the Roadblock was in the red light district. When is Kelly going to do a Roadblock? She is going to be left with them all at the back end of the race.
And I didn’t laugh at Chris still being vile to Anastasia. The Sunday papers reported yesterday that this couple had broken up but had been told to say they were still together by publicity as it was a better for the show. I hope the rumour is true.
However it was a short stop in Amsterdam, they ate two donuts each and their next clue was telling them to get on the train to Prague. The first four teams got couchettes to sleep in. The other teams had to sit for the 12 hour journey.
Dave and Kelly, Luke and Jeff, the cowboys, and Chris and Anastasia got the benefit of this. I am surprised Mel didn’t scream at Alana as they were the fourth to arrive at the doughnut stall but the last to leave. As Alana kept on gagging on it.
The first clue in Prague was to find the “holey” statue on the bridge. For some teams the spelling of “holey” was there was a hole in the statue, so Mel and Alana, Nathan and Tyler, and Chris and Anastasia were the first to get the clues for the detour.
Luke and Jeff, the farmers and the female models went on a wild goose chase. With Jeff emphatically saying that “holey” was how holy was spelt in the Old Testament.
The choice was between chivalry and delivery – either dress up as a knight and looking around the square for a person with a key to then pass up to a princess on a balcony or delivery – deliver a small child to a hotel to get your next clue.
Most people did delivery and for the girls Mel and Alana it was very difficult as the carriages were quite heavy.
Sam and Renae had the shits with Jeff and Luke as they thought they had sent them the wrong way. Luke denied this and I tend to believe him.
At the Roadblock which was an archery challenge Nathan nailed it and it meant him and Tyler were first to the pitstop again. These guys are unstoppable. Second to the pitstop was Chris and Anastasia.
Unfortunately for Mel and Alana they were the last to arrive and were eliminated. Mel thought it was good time for them to go as Alana was now standing on her own two feet.
