Team Dong shows up at the cave as Twin N’s feed the dogs. And of course, Goat Boys, get lost to make sure the Twin’s catch up. Jaymes Dong runs around the cave past the black light posters and kids watching reruns of Thundercats and find some shrooms. Both teams are lost and confused in the caves. Jaymes comes out first, but it’s not right. Lexy comes out next and she is right! Teams must now drive to Chateau de Chenoneau, known as the castle of the ladies. Oh you better believe Phil will be hanging out there! And the last team to check in WILL be eliminated! Team Dong gets it right and are on their way to the castle of the ladies. Gross, right?! It’s a race for first between Dong and FNL.
Goat Boys show up at the shrooms and Twin N’s follow them in.
And the first team to the ladies is….Dong! Ironic, no? After 11 legs of the race, they are team number one and they’ll be racing for a million dollars and they have each won a Ford Escape with smart technology. Now James’ mom doesn’t have to work to work!
Team FNL is number two. But who cares about #2? Unless you’re Dr. Oz or something.
Meanwhile in the caves of shrooms Goats and Twins are running around past Goomba’s and blocks filled with coins looking for that mushroom to make them big. Oops, sorry, wrong game. Natalie gets out of the cave first and got all the mushrooms right. And Brent is just strolling around, without a care in the world. Besides the big purple dragon that’s hanging out with him! Mmmm..shroooms!
Brent gets it right and they are on their way. Josh says they are ten minutes behind. I like hearing exactly how far behind they are. Both teams ask for directions and they’re off.
I guess it’s not illegal to drive and talk on your phone in France. Not even your landline.
The Twin N’s are arguing and “SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP!” Twin N’s find out they were going in the wrong direction! I gotta say, I’m really rooting for Goat Boys right now. And the team that makes it to the mat is…Goat Boys! YES! YES! YES! At this rate in three more legs they’ll finally come in first! Twins N’s arrive and they are eliminated. They are bummed. We are ecstatic. They say they need to harness their something or other, but they had fun. Can I stop hearing their voices now?
“Please let me stop Amazing Racing.”
PART II: Lost in New York
Fran here for part 2. I finally got Lil’ C to bed. Probably would have gotten her to bed faster if I could kick open my trunk. HINT HINT! Phil is talking up the castle of ladies, he’s so at home there. They show a moment where Jaymes and James get to kick their new trunks. Wow! The trunk really does open when you kick it! Fly to your final destination, New York, New York. They get a post card that is a clue that tells them to go to Coney Island in the year 1935. Time Travel! Now AR gets interesting!
