First of all Barry wanted to say congrats to the San Francisco Giants who won some sort of ball sporting event and to a Panda who was named the MVP. An actual Panda?! If it’s not, I don’t want to hear about it!
Back to the spooOOOooky Halloween edition of our Amazing Race recap!
BOO! Scared yet? Good!
When last we left AR Bangladesh was disgusting, Team Tall & Tiny was out, Team Mama Mia was number one and we pretty much feel nothing about the rest of the teams. So let’s get started! BOOO!!
As we start the fifth leg of the race around the world we got behind the scenes a bit with James from Mama Mia whose dad has stage four cancer with no chance of remission. Wow…that sucks….James says it gives him even more motivation, to win for his dad.
They leave first. They’re on their way to the wholesale produce market Jatrabari Market. They have to find a vendor selling eggplant to get their next clue. Honestly, if it was me and they said my dad had no chance of remission and I went to a market in a foreign country I think I would be asking for any kinds of crazy herbal remedies they had. I’d bring bag a whole bag of crazy fish eyes and monkey brains and ground up tree bark from a gypsy woman, because hey, why not?
Food trucks are so 2011.
Mama Mia finds the eggplant dude and they are on their way to a ferry and their next clue. They’re not leaving Bangladesh yet? They just walked by a dead dong on the street! Come on, let’s move on AR! Oh wait did I say “dong?” Freudian typo. I meant DOG. Much more sad.
Choke out is second and Twin N’s are third and they brag about how they’re the only girl team left.
Roadbloack: Teams must build an ancient Bangladeshi scale to balance wood using rocks as a counter balance. AR keeps trying to tell us what to tweet about, for example:#Roadblock.
“We tried to warn our town of the dangerous roadblock, but Amazing Race’s Twitter account flooded our feed!” -Something you’ll never have to worry about.
Bangladeshi pole vaulting!
Mama Mia actually seemed to build the scale fast, but had some rope problems.
Team Twin N’s are in a cab and say that they have to beat the “goras” which is Hindi for white people. They say it’s not derogatory, and after a quick Google search, they’re right! It’s a word that refers to their chalky white skin and is not derogatory. Makes sense, I melt like butter when Barry talks about my chalky white skin and my fine spaghetti like sticky blonde hair. He’s such a sweet talker!
