The Amazing Race – The Final Leg – Nathan And Tyler Win
This entertaining series breezed by with the three final teams of the male models, female models and the father son team racing for the $250,000.
Their first leg was to go to Singapore with only $20 for the leg, so Nathan and Tyler were hoping there was not too much transport as they have not been able to stash cash since their wallet was stolen on the train in Poland.
The first things the teams had to do in Singapore was to open durians (a very smelly fruit) until they found one with red dye in them. Nathan and Tyler were first to find one and it was off to the detour.
It was either dare – to walk the length of a highwire 200 metres about the ground or stairs, which was where you had to go up and down the stairs twice.
“Every second can mean the difference between the prize money and not getting it” said Jeff. He had a different attitude last week when he went for a six hour layover in Jordan. They decided to do the stairs, and Nathan and Tyler did the sky walk. Nathan has a bit of a heights phobia but he conquered it. The way the rope sat around Tyler’s shorts was hilarious.
Sam and Renae were arguing about which one to do in the end Sam won out, but Renae was flipping out in the taxi as she does not like heights.
Jeff was stuffed half way through getting up the stairs, and Sam and Renae ended up overtaking them. However they kept on going on about how great they had done.
The male models finished first and headed off to a temple to have their fortune read. The girl in the temple who was interpreting was wearing a very short dress.
The fortune tellers were very wrong with Renae they said she could be a professor.
They then had to go to a park and try and find a Confucious statue to get their next clue.
The Singapore flyer was a great challenge as it allowed people to catch up. There was a clue in each carriage but only three correct clues. However if you got the wrong clue you had to do the circuit which was 21 minutes. They should have used this time to kip.
It was then off to Perth.
Nathan and Tyler, and Jeff and Luke were on the first flight, with the girls arriving 35 minutes later. They did have home ground advantage.
They had to go to King’s Park and they were driving themselves. Both of the teams got a bit lost, however the male models were first to arrive. They then had to drive to Fremantle Prison to unlock prison doors to find their clue. The boys got it in the fourth door, they have had luck on their side this race.
Renae and Same caught up with Jeff and Luke and the girls found the clue before them.
The Roadblock was putting all the countries flags they visited in a row. The trick was there were more than 12 flags in the pile. It again gave an opportunity for teams to catch up, and they all did.
At one stage I thought none of them were going to make it. Jeff decided to meditate, which in hindsight was not a bad idea.
Nathan solved it first and were racing to the pitstop. They asked a few people where, however even locals didn’t know where it was, why didn’t they ask to use a smart phone? Anyway it did not matter as they were first across the finish line and won $250,000.
While Nathan plans to use the money for a deposit on a unit, Tyler hopes to buy land in his favourite surfing destination Bali.
The girls came in second, and they must have been a fair way behind as it was dark by the time they hit the pitstop.
By the way did Lara Bingle announce on radio that they had won it?
