Lord, Give Me Milk
Last time, we ended up in
Holland, where the Hsus clashed, furniture was hoisted, and poles were
vaulted. Kate & Pat, though, were the last to come in after ALL of that
and were eliminated.
PIT STOP: Durgedam; Amsterdam, the Netherlands
First a note. Due to physical exertion during the bakfiet task, Ron
developed a hernia and required medical attention. After 12 hours of
whatever, Lorena & Jason are the first to shove off at 4:19a local time.
Fly to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Take a
taxi to the city's train station, where you will find the
next clue. You have $100 for this leg of the Race.
Lorena & Jason have
their issues, but it's nothing that they can't overcome, right?
After that, the Cheaters, the Blondes, and the Dating Goths are
on their way... and we have a four-racer pileup at the airport.
Azaria & Hendekea are on their way as the others determine that
(and this wasn't given in the clue) Ouagadougou is in Burkina
While Marianna/Julia & Nicolas/Donald continue to butcher the
pronunciation of "Ouagadougou", they decide to book their
flights over the cab's cell phone. Call it a Mobile Shoutout, if
Flights to Ouagadougou leave at 7:20 and 8:00, unfortunately the
flight at 7:20 is full.
Ronald admits that as a father, he was not at his finest. No....
So it looks like the earliest possible flight to Burkina Faso
leaves at 8 and arrives at 4:30, unless you're Nathan &
Jennifer, and you're out of here at 7:20...
1st FLIGHT TO BURKINA FASO VIA PARIS
Nathan & Jennifer
2nd FLIGHT TO BURKINA FASO VIA PARIS
Nicholas & Donald
TK & Rachel
Kynt & Vyxsin
Lorena & Jason
Marianna & Julia
Ronald & Christina
Nathan & Jennifer are first to arrive in the city of light.
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
The second flight to Paris has been delayed, putting Nathan &
Jennifer way out in front.
The six teams on the second flight finally arrive, and it's a
race to see who can get to a bus headed for the flight out to
Africa. And look who arrives, Nathan & Jennifer... everyone
else! All of our teams are finally on their way to...
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO
... And Marianna & Julia are first out the gate. Shana &
Jennifer catch a cab, but don't get their change back. Nathan &
Jennifer are the first to the station, and thus, the first to
train to Bingo. The train will let you off in the middle of
Shana & Jennifer
thought that the fare was 3000 francs. Turns out it was 4000,
and they only get 1000 back. (C-Note to future Racers: in order
to prevent wasting time by fighting with the locals... the
locals always win).
And at the station, the ticket offices close for the day,
leaving all of the teams on the same train leaving TOMORROW.
Meanwhile, it's a night of dancing. Pay attention, this is
The next morning, it's off to Bingo. You'll notice that it's
full of flies. Shana & Jennifer say they couldn't live this way,
with all the dirt and the smells. Azaria & Hendekea and TK &
Rachel are more than at home, though.
BINGO, BURKINA FASO
Now you have to find a clue in the middle of nowhere. TK &
Rachel are the first to spot...
WHO'S READY TO WORK UP A THIRST?
Team members must milk a camel up to a line in a bowl. Then
they have to drink the bowl of milk before receiving their
next camel. If your camel runs dry, you must wait until all
other teams have completed the Road Block before milking one
of the pack's camels.
Be mindful that camels are sensitive to fast movements and
So it's time to milk
now. Lorena gets knocked around. Nate gets the kick, as well,
but his milk gets spilled. TK, though, stays calm and gets the
milk he needs it. TK's the first to take a drink. "It's a little
grainy, sweet, and warm."
The Tuareg nomads will gather four
camels. Lead the four camels along a path to your next clue.
Julia's milk gets
knocked out, while Christina finally a) does her best Eek! the
Cat impersonation, and b) loads up on the finest in camel's
On the beaten path, Nic/Donald & TK/Rachel determine that
they've gone the wrong way. This raises the ire of Christina,
who spent the latter part of the camel trail following them.
Back at the posts, Julia & Azaria are out of milk. So is Blonde
Jennifer. So it's a camel switch-off. Azaria & Hendekea are
first to finish with their new camel. Meanwhile, TK & Rachel are
TEACH IT OR LEARN IT
TEACH IT: Participate in the education of
a local child by teaching them 10 words in English.
LEARN IT: Delve into the local culture by learning 10 words
in the African language of More.
At least Misha knows where the school is. Azaria & Hendekea
decide to approach it thematically, five and five.
TK/Rachel, Nic/Donald, and Ron/Christina, on the other hand,
decide to teach.
Azaria & Hendekea know their More...
Proceed on foot along the marked path to the outskirts of
Bingo, the PIT STOP for this leg of the race.
WARNING! The last team to check in MAY
PIT STOP: Outskirts of Bingo, Burkina Faso
And just as they're getting started, here comes a monsoonal
windstorm. And in the middle of it, Phil with an umbrella. We
could use that right now.
"Azaria & Hendekea... You are team number one!" For their
efforts, they get a five-night trip to Bermuda. But is the
target on their backs bigger?
Back with the camels, Julia finally gets her milk on... and
in... Lorena, though, keeps getting knocked deeper and deeper
into Philimination territory. They finally get a hold of Julia's
camel, which just had a baby. So we finally complete the task.
And a special welcome to all of those who are tuning into Cold
Case. Ron/Christina & TK/Rachel finally learn their kid a thing
or two about the Queen's English, while Kynt & Vyxsin show off
their mad More skills.
So now EVERYONE's running toward the mat... and we have a
collision...with the host. Rule #1 of game show interaction:
don't collide with the host. At the end, TK/Rachel are #2,
Nate/Jen are #3, and Kynt/Vyxsin are #4. And right behind them,
Ron/Christina and Nic/Donald.
Lorena & Jason start RUNNING with their camels, but it means
nothing if they don't know More or if their little kid can't
speak a lick of English. But let's concentrate on beating
Marianna & Julia first. Doesn't happen.
Shana & Jennifer are team #7.
Lorena & Jason finally overtake Marianna & Julia, and they opt
to learn the language of the locals. So do Marianna & Julia.
Who'll be the first to emerge from the Learn More in 10 Easy
It's Lorena & Jason! And not too far behind, Marianna & Julia.
Who'll be the first on Phil's crash mat?
It's Lorena & Jason! Still in it. Unfortunately, that means for
Marianna & Julia, it's back to Miami. They are the last team to
arrive... and are eliminated from going any further in the Race.
After Leg 3: The Netherlands - Burkina Faso
1) Azaria/Hendekea - trip to Canada, trip to Bermuda
8) Lorena/Jason - sport bikes
