Like Scalded Dogs
We continue our race in Chile with nine.
Jet & Cord made a bold move and reaped the rewards at the first team at
the Pit Stop. Jody & Shannon miss the train and their Amazing Race ends
in Puerto Varas, Chile...
PUERTO VARAS, CHILE
GRUTA DE LA VIRGEN
2320 LOCAL TIME
... where we pick up with
Jet & Cord. After the rest period, they get this clue...
FIND THE GNOME IN
THE WALL GANG!
Take a bus across the Andes to
Argentina, then drive to el Boliche Viejo in Bariloche. Once there,
you'll have to play a game of Five-Card Stud against a Travelocity
Roaming Gnome. Tour bus leaves at 8:30a. First three teams ONLY! You have $48 for this leg of the Race.
Their bus leaves at 8:30am,
as they analyze their picture of Butch and Sundance... and a Gnome. They
use the spare time to get a lay of the land from a few locals que habla
Meanwhile, back at the Pit
Stop, Caite is puking. Brent gets her to a hospital. They make it to the
ER 10 minutes AFTER their scheduled departure. The rest of the teams are
departing, but Brent & Caite leave for the race course three hours after
their DDT (designated departure time). Good thing no one left yet.

All other teams
Six hours later, the teams
Now to find the Gnome in the
Wall Gang. All the teams head out in their respective cars, with Jet &
Cord in front... slowly, but in front. They know where the joint is. The
rest of the pack think they know where they're heading... but they don't
know that Jet & Cord know EXACTLY where they're going.
... and they're first there.
But who'll beat the Gnome first? It's Joe & Heidi, nines against the
"Hoof it to the
Carol & Brandy win their
hand, king-high versus jack-high.
Jet & Cord... get a bad
beat. Their Gnome has a really big poker face.
Joe & Heidi are the first to
the Peņa Gaucha and this clue...
WHO HAS A WAY WITH
Choose a roping station, and
after one of you watches a demonstration, you will attempt to rope a
"steer" 18 feet away. If you succeed, you must pull the cow back to
receive your clue.
Heidi looks like a roper.
Meanwhile, Jet & Cord finally win a hand with a jack kicker. They head
to the ranch, where Carol & Brandy are already ready to rope in a clue.
Cord shows the teams how to do it.
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
Drive yourselves to Puente
Nirihuau. Once you're there, search the cliffs overlooking the river
for your next clue.
Carol has a bit of a tangle,
while Jeff tries his hand at lassoing... Carol gets her clue, followed
by Heidi... Meanwhile, Brent & Caite... are lost.
Jet & Cord make their way to
HORSE SENSE or
HORSE SENSE: Visit a gunslinger
and get a set of directions. Then using an old-time compass for
reference, follow the coordinates by a set number of paces to find
bags of money left in the ground. Deliver the money to a lead bandit
at the train station, who'll give you your next clue.
HORSE POWER: Make your way to a
polo field and don appropriate attire. Moving a practice pony and
alternating turns, you must score a goal in nine swings or less.
Once they succeed, they'll receive their next clue.
Jet & Cord go with... horse
Meanwhile, Jeff finally
swings his way to Nirihuau, at about the same time Steve & Allie do the
Jet & Cord try to stick it
in the goal... while Joe & Heidi overshoot a route marker. Meanwhile,
Jet & Cord get a trophy for their placing with this...
Estancia Fortin Chacabuco
This is the Pit Stop for the
leg. Last team to check in MAY BE ELIMINATED.
Meanwhile, Carol & Brandy
meet the gunslinger and get their direction... as do Jeff & Jordan.
JorDan finally play cards,
as Carol & Brandy find their first bag of gold. Meanwhile, Jeff & Jordan
mistake the gunslinger for the lead bandit. Carol & Brandy... are losing
themselves on foot. Steve takes a tumble... and Carol & Brandy decide to
take the other Detour on.
Brent & Caite... are still
JorDan rope in their steer,
as Jeff & Jordan grab their bag... and give it to the wrong guy. He
doesn't even know where the train station is. That's a big help.
Joe & Heidi find the
station... but they have the wrong bag of money, so they have to stick
it back where they found it.
Louie & Michael rope in a
clue ahead of Monique & Shawne... and Steve & Allie and Carol & Brandy
knock a goal or two in.
Brent & Caite finally get to
the poker table... and the lasso... and the bridge. Meanwhile, Monique &
Shawne are still roping.... until they finally nail it. Can they get
back into this Race?
ESTANCIA FORTIN CHACABUCO
Another leg, another first
place finish for Jet & Cord! They pick up a trip to Patagonia!
Back to the Detour, as we
get faked out, lost, and just plain crazy running grid searches. Jeff &
Jordan get Louie & Michael's bag. Thanks for that.
Steve & Allie come in
second... Brandy & Carol come in third.
Jeff & Jordan finally arrive
at the station and get their clue.
Joe & Heidi take down #4.
Meanwhile, Louie & Michael switch Detours. While JorDan... misses their
final shot. They're going to have to do it all over again. This is their
third attempt. Third time's the charm.
Jeff & Jordan L take #5.
Louie & Michael take #2... as in their second attempt at goal. Brent &
Caite finally make their shot, followed by "SPARTAAAAAA!" Louie &
JorDan gets the six spot.
Monique & Shawne switch Detours... and Brent & Caite lock in the 7-spot.
That leaves the moms and the
cops... The cops have already finished and are headed to the Pit Stop,
where they lock in #8.
That leaves the moms, who
just want to be an example of what happens when you follow your dreams.
They're proud of each other, but alas, their Amazing Race will end here
