Fran with Berry here ready to ruffle your international feathers with this weeks AR recap. If you remember last week the fabulous Goat Boys came in last, but it was a non-elimination round so they are still in this thing. Although it almost seemed like they would have preferred to be eliminated. Crouching in a corner petting a goat doesn’t seem like a proactive way to “prove ‘em wrong!”
“Hold it together and look grateful.”
“You said that out loud.”
“Sh*t. Goat sh*t.”
The teams remaining are:
Mama Mia (James and Abba)
Choke Out (Ryan and Abbie)
Twin N’s (Nadiya and Natalie)
Team Dong (Jaymes and James
Friday Night Lights (Trey and Lexi)
Truckasaurus (Rob and Kelley)
Goat Boys (Josh and Brent)
Before we go to the first commercial we are treated to a visit by Jen and Kisha! Remember them! Sisters from seasons 14 & 18! AR flashback to that diving challenge in Russia, where Jen had to do a high dive but she was super scared but did it anyways. I totally remember that! Wait, that AR memory was just a promotion for The Life of Pi? What?! How does that AR moment have ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE LIFE OF PI?!?!? If they just showed a straight up commercial it would have been way more effective. This weird conjoining of two seemingly unrelated things (a roadblock from six seasons ago on the Amazing Race and a new epic movie) doesn’t make me want to see the movie, it confuses and frustrates me! My brain is only so big. I can’t handle it! It’s like when Pizza Hut wanted you to read, they’re not supposed to go together!
Back to this season and this show. Mama Mia is first to leave. They rip open that shiny new yellow envelope and: Teams will now get the heck out of Bangladesh and fly to Istanbul, Turkey! Hooray!! Once they arrive they must proceed to the Kabatas Ferry Terminal where they’ll find their next clue.
Abba’s knees are paining but according to him they won’t stop. “I am hurt but I’m not slain.” James says that he’s taking it to biblical proportions. Cool! When’s the begatting gonna start?
“Amazing Race? We thought this was the Jesus auditions.”
Choke Out leaves second and they are all too happy to leave Bangladesh. Ryan says, “When your Samsung 52 inch goes fuzzy on you don’t bitch go to Dhaka.” He has a 52 inch phone!? Wow, he must have a big pocket.
Twin N’s are on their merry screamy way. They complain about Choke Out in the cab. The best insult they can muster is, “weirdo.”
Truckasaurus leaves and refuses the first taxi that comes for them, they want a newer taxi. Rob says that he uses his cockiness to overcome obstacles. And that he makes his own drive. Does that mean he makes his own Drive, the motion picture, fan fiction movies?
