And we’re back….for part two of the season twenty finale. At the end of the first hour Team Second Chance (Ralph and Vanessa) was Philiminated. Boo hoo. Moving on! Who’s IN? WHo has a chance to win a million dollars:
Team Blowup (Dave and Rachel)
Team Boy Guns (Art and JJ)
Team Reality (Rachel and Brendan)
We continue in Osaka, which Phil tells us Japan’s kitchen. That means Tokyo is the media room and Fukuoaka is the bedroom! Osaka is making Fran hungry. More peanut M&M’s please!
“Rachel, shape up! I’m not going to open this clue until you stand at attention and let me work it!”
Team Blowup came in first and is the first to leave for Honolulu, Hawaii!! They need to go to the twins known as Mauka and Makai. Mmmm…M&M. From that clue they have to figure out that they have to go to what Phil is non-chalantly calling the Twin Towers. Team Blowup reminds us that if they win the Amazing Race that it will be their eighth first place win which will set AR history for most legs won. Because who cares about a million dollars when you can beat someone’s record and take them down a peg?
Hawaii hangs so loose they don’t understand the concept of Too Soon.
Boy Guns leave, they said they’ve envisioned themselves winning. I knew they were into the Secret. You can just tell with some people. I bet they have a very elaborate, erotic visioning board in their shared apartment. Team Reality leaves last, reminding us and themselves that they’re underdogs.
They have a twelve hour flight so they can rest up for the final leg. They arrive in Hawaii where it’s so damn beautiful and they’re off! Hawaii really is gorgeous. Fran and I spent some time at a nudist colony while we lived there working for Dole. Apparently Dole doesn’t like it’s workers being nude. Their loss!
Team Boy Gun and Blowup drop their packs at their airport and are runnin’ free! With only Team Reality left with all their baggage. Rachel probably can’t rationalize leaving her backpack behind because it has all her backup extensions.
It’s a cab race with Blowup in the lead and Boy Guns blindly following them in the cab behind. But Blowup Dave and his cab driver are both vets with a bond powerful enough to outmaneuver and ditch Art and JJ. Support our troops, screw everyone else!
Team Blowup makes it to the Twinsies. Teams must now ascend and rappel the forty-five story tower and while at the top find their next clue down below. Team Reality shows up as Blowup is getting strapped in. Team Boy Guns is trying to get to a hotel to ask someone where to go. They’re told to go to a pair of statues on Waikiki Beach. One statue is on a guy on a boogie board and a seal one is of a seal. No offense, but they don’t sound like twins.
“Enough about your fantasy tombstone dude, we gotta get going!”
Dave from Blowup makes it to the top first and screams “encouragingly” to Rachel. As Rachel from Reality starts she says, “Right now I’m freaking out.” Well, that’s no surprise. I have to say this sets the Rachels apart. Blowup Rachel is saying how hard it is, but is excited and having fun. Reality Rachel is trying to win an Emmy with her emotional freak out. Okay, we’re officially rooting for Blowup. We at least like one person out of this awful foursome.
Blowup sees the AR clue which is a tent down below and Dave acts like a human GPS and figures out how to get there and they’re on their way down.
Team Boy Guns shows up at the seal and boogie board statues and realizes seals and boogie boards are two different things, not twins. Then some lady tells them they are looking for the twin towers in Pearl City.
