Amazing Race All-Stars: Legs 4 and 5

“Double U-Turn that!”

Love the Globetrotters.

Crazy ol’ Amazing Race keeps screwing us around with all these “You’re the first team to arrive…but you’re still racing. Here’s your next clue.

Argh!

You can see the teams physically droop whenever they hear that.

So without the elimination, Kent and Vyxsin are somehow still alive, something that annoys me. They can go anytime they want for all I care.

I loved the basketball game on this episode…while I love all the racing, I think it’s fun to see these guys hang out a bit.

Also…Margie…she’s got to be the baddest woman contestant ever on the show. While teams were helping each other carry those solar rods up to the top of the roof…Marge slaps one on her back and busts her way up the stairs like it was nothing. And she’s a grandma!

Don’t have a ton of time, so let’s talk about the crazy contest happenings!

The Contest (or Ryann’s World)

Pretty sure it’s a record for one of you guys to have the top 3 teams TWO weeks in a row. That’s just silliness.

First off, it should be noted that people got points for two weeks ago despite it not really being a pit stop. Phil still tells them what place they are in so it counts in my book.

Also, THREE weeks ago Flight Time/Big Easy had a penalty that I never applied to their score…so that’s another -5 pts there.

Ryann has basically come from way behind to take a commanding lead because of the bonus points that come with having the top 3 teams two weeks in a row. Amazing stuff, makes the contest a lot more fun! Congrats Ryann!

    I’m bummed that Kent & Vyxsin didn’t get eliminated after all of that… but so happy my Globetrotters are still around. By the way, that dinosaur challenge was crazy hard. I would have HATED that, if I was in the race, which I never will be. I much prefer being sarcastic from my couch. :)

    Look out world!!! Ryann is coming through!!!! Kent & Vyxsin need to go…bad. Now let’s just hope all my teams stay in it. :)

    Did the cowboys get a penalty for taking the other team’s cab? Seems to me like a team in another season did. But the circumstances might have been different here. Also, is it just me, or did Kent go by “Kynt” in the first season he was on?
