Amazing Race Recap: Leg 9 and 10

// November 28th, 2010 // fun

Wow, so I skipped the recap last week and figured I’d slam two into one! I’m such a bum, but actually, I’ve been incredibly busy and just haven’t had time to spend doing this.

So last week we lost Chad and Steph, a couple I didn’t care much about, and this week we SHOULD have lost another but a darn non-elimination screwed everything up.

Nick has grown so much, loves Vicky so much, that you have to wonder just how BAD he must have been before he “changed” into the better person he is now. I mean, his girlfriend has athsma, can’t run and he’s telling her to stop crying. Wow…back in his bad days he probably just choked you to death instead of the put-downs.

So Nick just went to sleep and decided to quit looking for the boat, which is probably a first for the show. I mean, some entire TEAMS give up together, but this was on side just dropping to the ground and letting the other person do the work.

Which made the non-elimination so lame this time. First off, it’s now the second one for them on the race. But second…could it go to a more undeserving team?

Anyways…I don’t have a ton of time, but my three teams are still in it and two of them are all-girl squads. Never before has a girl team one the race, so I’m pulling for Brooke/Claire or Nat/Kat to pull it off.

The Contest

Okay, so two weeks of standing changes. First off, last week we had two U-Turns, which resulted in -10 for both Chad/Steph and Brooke/Claire. This week there was a bonus for Jina/me for having the top three teams on the leg…plus bonus points for the non-elim for Nick/Vicky.

Since Jina and I are out of the running for the prize…Dave, Josie and Heather are all right there trying to get that gift card for themselves!

    It’s all so anti-climatic since I can’t win anything… maybe Mike should have mentioned that to me before I was so awesome in my selection process…

    Yeah, maybe next time you’ll pick the Nick/Vick team so we can make fun of you…
