The Amazing Race – Rookie Mistakes and Dodgy Cab Drivers TAR Is Back
The Amazing Race series 23 commenced this week on SEVEN with the first leg run in Chile. Again this series the double express pass was going to the winner of the first leg. Which means the first person to the pitstop gets two express passes one to keep and the other to give away.
Nicole and Travis, married emergency doctors, arrived first at the pitstop but a rookie error of not reading the clue properly meant they incurred a 30 minute time penalty. They took a taxi to the pits stop instead of walking. This meant Tim and Marie were the official first team at the pitstop.
It was another misread of the clue that caused some delay for Hoskote and Naina. She thought she had to do the second part of the road block but it was her father. It was a slow roadblock where they had to row a boat out on the harbour, find a specific boats and get five fish off them. Even if they had not stuffed up the clue it was highly likely they would still have been last to the pitstop and eliminated.
However their exit interview on HitFix also shows that a hurricane in Dallas and a dodgy cab driver really caused their problems.
