The Amazing Race – The Farmers Are Running An Awesome Race
I like the Farmers but what the hell did Matt mean when he said “Sometimes you have to take the bull by the horns and give it to her”?
But their exchanges crack me up – this one in Jerusalem was a beauty as a guy walks past them eating.
Tom: “That’s a bagel there, the round ones with the hole in the middle”
Matt : “What’s it do?”
Tom: “What do you mean? It’s food.”
The farmers were first out of the pitstop and had to search around Masada to find their next clue. They were 45 minutes ahead of Jeff and Luke.
They had to drive to Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
Jeff and Luke are very intense do either ever crack a smile.
The Roadblock was deciphering a hebrew code, Matt flicked it quickly to Tom, as he said “it seems like a bit of a quiz”. And what must be an Amazing Race first he had a kip while Tom was doing the puzzle. His rationale when he is doing puzzles he doesn’t like people yelling out. I am loving this team.
They then headed off to Jerusalem to a post office for their next clue.
Sam and Renae were last to leave the pitstop at 8.28am, and when they hit Masada I was surprised they didn’t ask someone which part of the ruin was King Herod’s winter palace, so they wasted a lot of time finding the clue.
Jeff was having problems with the code, and asked Nathan if he wanted to collaborate. It was like guys come on it is top four when are you going to get competitive. Also Nathan realised he had made a mistake by saying yes, as Jeff was in a complete muddle not that he realised it.
Jeff did not get how completely he was stuffing it up, and was still trying to take the lead. He said “Trust me on this” and then went up to show his answer and was told it was wrong. Nathan realised an A was missing, an Jeff tried to make it look like he figured that out.
Once the farmers got to the post office they got the detour clue. It was a choice between Pilgrims trail – carrying a cross through the Via Del Rosa going past all the stations of the cross.
Or Holy Grail where they go to the western wall and on an archeological dig, find a pot, then take it to the City of David and wade through an aqueduct to hand it over to get their next clue. The Farmers went for Pilgrims Trail, as did the other boys teams. Whereas the girls went for the Holy Grail.
Nathan and Tyler got lost on the Via Delrosa not helped that they had not brought the clue with them.
Sam and Renae were saying they were getting a lot of help from men because they were blond. And Sam had a blond moment when she was telling one of them that adjacent meant opposite to….
The next clue was on the Rampart Wall, and the farmers had a bit of difficulty finding it, but they must have been pleased to find it and then race to the pitstop. Which was the Aisha Hotorah (sic) Centre and Matt and Tom were first to arrive. They won $10000 as well.
Nathan and Tyler got hideously lost, and were getting very tense with each other, but arrived at the pitstop third. Lucky for the girls it was a non-elimination leg as they arrived last. They will have to either arrive at the next pitstop first or incur a 30 minute time penalty.
