This show is teaching
the kids that Reading is Fundamental - Heather and Eve
didn't believe that, so out they go. We will be getting
rid of another team that is fundamentally bad at
something. Which team gets to go?
All of the teams are separated by a total of 37 minutes,
so it's not like one team has an advantage over another.
But two teams start out with disadvantages - the teams
of Derek and Drew and Ken and Gerard have both used
their Fast Forwards - should they get stuck in the back
of the group, they have no short cut to use to get back
to the front. Should either of them get ridiculously
behind, then their stay on the short will end on this
But they are not too concerned about that now, since Ken
and Gerard are the first to leave Lisbon, Portugal, with
the models in third, with Flo and Zach sandwiched in
Find the Westernmost point of continental Europe. That
would be Cabo Da Roca. it's only 22 miles away, so it's
sort of a trick question. Will any of the teams be
fooled by it?
Ken and Gerard aren't, and since they are still aligned
with the twins, the twins can save their brain cells to
use on sunbathing. Andre and Damon are next - and they
have no clue, so they follow the twins. Flo and Zach
find out from the locals that its Cabo Da Roca, as do
Teri and Ian. john Vito and Jill also find it - but they
take the Taxi to get there, whereas everyone else is
taking the train. Michael and Kathy are also Taxi-ing
it, and team AA are gunning it. 'To be coming in the
last stage last was a real kick in the ass.'
Teri and Ian start bickering again. 'I am the navigator,
and when I say we fly, it's time to fly' Teri is
probably hoping that his engine loses a gasket and that
she has to steer the plane - and force him to skydive
off of it.
While in the taxi, John Vito and Jill pass Ken and
Gerard - who with the models are going to Santa Apolonia
- which is where the trains are Ken and Gerard decide to
play snobby and not tell them where they're going, but
the joke is on them, since if they did talk, then they
would have gotten to the Cabo with everyone else.
At the trains, Andre and Damon, who have no clue where
they're going, bribe the models and Ken and Gerard $30
to tag along with them. The other 2 teams decide that
they will follow them no matter what, so they invite
Andre and Damon into their alliance. The
All-Male-Alliance team is now complete.
But they are in last, as Aaron and Arianne, thanks to
the taxi, get there first, followed by John Vito and
Jill. They both get to the clue - and it's a detour. The
teams have to get to the next clue using one of two
methods - Ropes or Slopes -
Ropes - repel 300 feet down to the shore below, where
the clue is waiting.
Slopes - Hike down the sloping trail, which will take
Team AA and John Vito and Jill immediately decide to
repel. Teri and Ian are next, and they also repel. The
train station comes in well after everyone else, and the
manly alliance all get there last.
While the manly alliance is getting taxis to the
repelling site, let's see how everyone else is doing.
Aaron's rope is caught, but they get it unstuck and are
the first ones done with the repel. Tangier, Morocco is
the next place to go, and they get there by going to
Alciera and then by taking a ferry to Morocco. John Vito
and jill are right behind them.
Michael/Kathy and Flo/Zach and Teri/Ian all get to the
cliff at the same time, and all of the women are
freaking out - but none more than Flo, who wants to quit
repelling as she is 20 feet down the cliff. They do and
decide to hike down instead. That proves costly, as
right after they decide to hike, the rest of the groups
get to the repel site.
Ian/Teri and Michael/Kathy do complete the repel. The
brothers and Andre/Damon are next. Ken and Gerard are
trailing the pack as we get to listen to some of their
mirth. 'Brother, I love you but if you dont do this, I
break your ass...Just pretend that there is a dozen
glazed donuts at the bottom!' He does, apparently, and
them and Andre/Damon are done next, with the models and
Flo/Zach vying for the basement.
It's now a rush to the ferry to try to get the closest
one. Andre/Damon are looking at the gas tank for their
car - and they see it needs diesel - so does John Vito
and Jill. Teri and Ian don't read very well and they
stick non-diesel fuel into their tank - and so does
Aaron and Arianne - and so does Flo and Zach - and so
does Michael and Kathy. The next time you give
contestants an examination, MAKE SURE THE PEOPLE KNOW
HOW TO READ!!!!!
The car doesn't work very well with the wrong gas in the
car, and all four teams are realizing this. Ian was the
first person to realize this, but he decides to do
something about it, which is not what Aaron does. 'The
car's dead, it's one o'clock in the morning, and we're
in the middle of nowhere - I want to go home.' Not on a
car with the wrong gas in it, you won't - but if you
keep whining and not do anything about it, you will be
Teri and Ian decide to walk to the gas station - and
they are rather close to it. So do Flo and Zach, while
Aaron and Arianne are sulking on the sidewalk, with
Aaron sobbing. Flo wants to quit the race. Teri and Ian,
remarkably, are the first ones to get help and Ian
siphons the gas. Flo/Zach start their car and are back
into it. So do Teri and Ian. Aaron and Arianne flag down
a police officer and they get help for their car.
Michael and Kathy decide that since they are stuck, they
give up for now and stay at a hotel overnight while
their car is being fixed - that's the dumb-ass move of
the episode as everyone else is en route to the ferry.
Meanwhile, at Algeciras, the people who do know how to
read are getting on the ferry. Andre/Damon meet John
Vito and Jill, while the rest of the AMA show up in
third and fourth. The first ferry holds the first four
teams - and the clue on the other side of the boat says
to go to Viajes Mandria - a bus charting company - in
order to go to Fez. Each bus has room for three teams -
and the busses leave one hour apart. The AMA get the
first three spaces, so John Vito and Jill get stuck on
the second bus, which will have them, Ian/Teri and
Aaron and Arianne are next - 'We went from happy and
excited to bitter and jaded in 24 hours.' says Aaron.
They get even more bitter - they missed the second
ferry, but unbeknownst to them, Michael and Kathy have
also missed the ferry and are even further behind than
they are. Aaron and Arianne get the third ferry - and
Michael and Kathy don't.
Ken and Gerard get there first, and the next clue is a
Road Block time. One person has to find an animal
tannery. In the tannery are 25 vats - three of them have
the clue to the Pit Stop - the rest have dead smelly
animals in them. Ewwwwwww. When they get the last clue,
the teams have to go to the Roof top of the Borj Nord -
that's the Pit Stop - and the last team there can take a
crash course on how to properly gas one's car.
Ken and Gerard once again secure the top spot, come in
first and because they won this lap, they win a digital
camera! Whoo-hoo. Andre and Damon come in second,
followed by the Doublemint Twins. This episode, the AMA
has gotten stronger, and that spells trouble for the
rest of the teams.
John Vito/Jill and Flo/Zach make their own alliance and
come in tied for fourth. Teri and Ian come in sixth, and
Aaron and Arianne, who don't quit the race, wind up in
seventh and they get to continue.
This leaves us with Michael and Kathy, who we don't get
to see do any more tasks, but with all of the hotel
time, they did gel together as a couple, right? Wrong,
according to Michael, who sees this thing end and they
both have to go their own way. Couples trying to get
back together have has an awful record on this show -
out of the 4 couples in turmoil, only Frank and
Margarita from season one have wanted to stay together.
So the show decides to divorce themselves from Michael
and Kathy, and send them on their way.
We skip last week thanks
to the Country Music Awards, but one of these teams will
be singing their own ballad. Michael and Kathy had the
split-up blues, and now another team will be singing the
lack of Air-Time sorrow song.
We start this week in the city of Fez - and the teams
will be leaving from there. The leaders of the All Male
Alliance, Ken/Gerard, leave at 4:43 am in search of the
Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca - the second largest
religious monument in the world. Andre/Damon take off at
4:37 and the models depart at 4:44.
Is it a full alliance? Ken/Gerard reluctantly let
Andre/Damon follow them, waiting for the time to ditch
them. '911? No way, they can't read a map - they don't
know where they're going'. Meanwhile, the secondary
alliance of Flo/Zach and John Vito/Jill leave around 30
Teri and Ian leave at 5:30am, and pass the secondary
alliance when John Vito's van blows a gasket. They get a
replacement car, but they lose an hour on everyone. In
addition to that, Flo and Zach don't realize that John
Vito and Jill aren't behind them, which ticks them off.
Once the teams get to the Mosque, they have to get to a
train station called The Pomery. The AMA get there - no
problem. Teri and Ian hire a taxi, which takes them to
the Mosque, while after getting to the Mosque, Flo and
Zac ask a taxi to take them to the Pomery - but the taxi
they ask is the same one that Ian asked to bring them to
the mosque. OOPS.
Ian and Flo get into it, with Ian ordering the taxi
driver not to go anywhere until he's done. Flo, pissy,
tells Zach that they'll find their own taxi, and the
mood has changed from Model hunt to Ian and Teri hunt.
Ian, sensing the animosity building up, is thinking
about using the Fast Forward.
The 9:10 train leaves - with the AMA on it. Flo/Zach and
Ian/Teri get to the next train - which doesn't leave for
another 2 hours. That gives John Vito and Jill time to
catch up with everyone else - and all of the teams are
thinking about using the Fast Forward.
But the two hour delay is not enough time for Aaron and
Arianne - they miss that bus and have to take the next
one - another 2 hour wait. Uh oh. Meanwhile, in
Marrakech, the AMA get to a detour, which is called -
Now you see it; Now you don't -
Now You See It - Ride horses to a route marker and dig
up clues in the sand. You know where you're going, but
it will take longer.
Now you don't - Ride a buggy and make a rubbing of the
clue, faster, but you don't know where you're going.
Ken and Gerard use the horses, while the models and Team
911 take the buggies. Since the brains took the horses,
the buggy people, naturally, get lost. Meanwhile, the
brothers get tired of digging and they take the buggies.
The models and team 911 get the clue - and now they have
to find someone to translate it. Once they get the
translation, they have to go to a roof of a building
called The Glacier Cafe and get the instructions on what
to do next - but the roof doesn't open up until 4:45 pm
- which gives the trailing teams plenty of time to catch
The Models and Team 911 figure it out - The Glacier Cafe
in Marrakech is the site for the next clue. Teri and Ian
decide to go for the Fast Forward - and so do John Vito
and Jill, after defeating Flo/Zach in a Rock Paper
Jamaa El-Fina Market is the Fast Forward - and the
objective is to find it under a set of carpets. John
Vito and Jill do get there and search with Teri and Ian
- but the old cranky couple get the Fast Forward first.
The Forward leads the crabby couple to another rooftop -
but this one belongs to the Riad Catalina. Since they
win the 6th leg, they each win a Kodak digital camera.
'We get nasty sometimes, but when the push comes to
shove, we shove together.' The problem is now that all
of the other teams want to shove you out of the race.
Meanwhile, Aaron and Arianne finally get to Marrakech -
and unbeknownst to them, the Fast Forward has already
been claimed, which puts them in an even deeper hole,
since they have wasted more time going out of their way
to go to the place that housed the Fast Forward.
All of the other teams get to the Cafe Glacier and are
waiting for it to open. Once it does, there is a Road
Block - one person has to help set up a vending stand
and help them sell 5 balls of escargot. Once they do
that, they then get the final clue to the Pit Stop.
While this is going on, Aaron and Arianne are playing
with the dune buggies. But boogieing away from the table
is Andre and Damon, who get the first clue to go to the
Riad Catalina. John Vito and Jill are next, then Ken and
Gerard, Flo and Zach, and finally the models.
'This is whats frustrating about this race - the driver
has our destiny in his hands.' says Andre and Damon. And
that's frustrating, because Flo and Zach (second), and
Ken and Gerard (third), who left after them, get to the
Pit Stop before them. That's a sign of driver
incompetency, and sure enough, Andre and Damon get the
taxi driver from Hell, which brings them to a mosque.
This one is a nationally sacred one - and its guarded by
nationals. As the cameras get shut off by the
nationalists, Andre and Damon get detained, and so does
their chances for winning the race.
The models come in fourth, and John Vito and Jill come
in fifth. Andre and Damon finally get back on the trail,
and believe it or not, they still manage to finish in
Aaron and Arianne couldn't get out of last place, and
what killed them was that last train that they missed.
The delay put them so far back that not even an Andre
and Damon detainment can stop them from being
eliminated. They are eliminated as the field is now down
to half of what was started.
In the past 2 seasons of
this show, there were 13 episodes, leaving three of them
so be 'safety points', or Pit Stops that did not result
in the last place being eliminated. This season, there
are only 11 episodes, leaving no margin for error until
the final 3 - if that. So every team must be on their
toes - especially Andre and Damon, who's detainment puts
them significantly behind everyone else.
We start at the Riad Catalina, where Teri and Ian leave
at 3:25 am. Time to go to Munich, Germany, where they
have to find a statue called Freezingle, and once there,
the teams need to find Kasbolay, a famous German hand
puppet. 'If we run a clean race from here on out and not
make any more major mistakes, we should be in a good
position.' says Ian. The mistakes better not be
financial, because the additional money that they get
for the leg is a whopping one dollar.
While they are making they're flight plans, Flo and Zach
leave at 5:19. They can't find the way out of the hotel
as Ken and Gerard leave at 5:20 and Derek and Drew leave
at 5:27. Flo and Zach do find their way out, and are the
first of the group of three to get a taxi. John Vito and
Jill leave at 5:32. The rest of the teams get to the
airport as Teri and Ian leave to go to Zurich, which
will transfer to Munich. But those flights to the rest
of the teams are all booked, so the rest of the teams
will have to go to Casablanca first, then go to Munich.
Andre and Damon leave at 7:04 - and they have the same
problems as everyone else. but instead of going to
Casablanca, they squabble a little and then instead of
flight, they take a taxi - which will take them 2 and a
half hours. Meanwhile, the rest of the teams have
already gotten to Casablanca. Uh-ho.
At Casablanca, we have a little tiff between the All
Male Alliance, and the couples alliance with Flo/Zach
and John Vito/Jill. Specifically, Flo and Drew. Lets
take a listen to this lovely conversation:
Flo: I don't like - I don't like to be so nasty
Derek: You're very good at it...it's your nature to be
Flo That's not true
Derek: You're the dirtiest player left in the game...We
can't trust any of you four, but we can trust Ken and
Alright kittens, you can sheath the claws back in now.
But we will be going back to this little piece of text
Also back in the game - Andre and Damon, who do catch up
to the teams in Casablanca. 'Our whole lead is
destroyed' complains Zach. 'It's annoying'. What's even
more annoying is Flo, who decides to truly play dirty
pool, as she is sick of Andre and Damon being in the
She tells the airline that they are on a flight, and
they do not want Andre and Damon on the same flight. Flo
and Zach are the next on the line - but they don't make
the plane that the AMA and John Vito and Jill are on and
have to wait for the 3pm flight. Andre and Damon,
successfully thwarted from getting on the plane by Flo,
are also stuck at the airlines. Meanwhile, Andre and
Damon get a flight to Paris, which will then go to
But it's Teri and Ian that get to Munich first. They
find the hand puppet and now must go to Innsbruck,
Austria and find the Pillar of St, Anna. John Vito and
Jill are right behind them, followed by the AMA.
Andre and Damon get to Paris, and find a woman working
for Lufthansa. They have an hour to get to a connecting
flight, but they instead pin their hopes on the woman to
get them a better flight. That was a very bad wager, as
the ticket counter is closed and the woman can't get the
manager to reopen it. The other trailing team, Flo and
Zach, realize that they are far behind, and that only
Damon and Andre are contemplating taking the Fast
Teri and Ian get to Innsbruck first - and there's a fast
Forward - sled or skate:
Sled - Run down a bobsled course - a scary ride but
quick and right down to the next clue.
Skate - Skate an Olympic relay course - not as scary,
but farther away.
Nothing opens up until 8am, so that gives all of the
teams to catch up, which three of the teams do. But two
don't - Flo and Zach decide to use the Fast Forward -
they have to find a surfer, surfing down self waves in
Eisenbach. Andre and Damon are stuck in Paris until 6:45
am the next morning, and that pretty much seals the 'Iloveyoubuhbye'
quotient of the race.
Flo and Zach are getting stressed out - it's 1:30 am and
they sleep in an el cheapo hotel, as tensions rise
between them. The AMA and John Vito and Jill do catch
Teri and Ian, and the models get the brothers the third
place in line, with john Vito and Jill in fourth.
The next morning, Flo and Zach are the first up and they
find the surfer. Their reward? A trip to the next Pit
Stop, which is in Fussen, Germany. An hour after they
get the fast Forward, the other 4 teams are in line for
the bob-sled. Teri and Ian go first and they complete it
without much fuss. The next destination? the Gondola
Nordkette, which is a ski-lift like transporter on the
other side of town.
Andre and Damon get to Germany just as the models finish
their bobsledding. Ken/Gerard and John Vito and Jill,
meanwhile. are waiting for their Taxis to arrive, which
causes a gap in tome between them and the front-runners.
But they do get the taxis, and the 4 teams get to the
lift. When they get there, they hit a Roadblock - the
next clue is 230 feet down. One of the two people on the
team have to use a harness and cable to drop down and
get the clue.
Here's a gratuitous shot of Andre and Damon getting the
clue to go to Innsbruck. That's nice. NEXT!
Teri and Ian get the clue first, and it gives them the
final directions to the Pit Stop in Fussen, Germany. But
Flo and Zach, fresh off the Fast Forward, get here
first, and they come in first place for the leg. Because
they come in first, they ALSO get a Kodak Easyshare
Digital Camera. Do they have one for each different team
who wins a leg of the race? That's tacky.
What else is tacky is the lack of gratitude the models
have. Teri finds the models clue as they misplace it.
The models, in turn, don't give Teri and Ian any help
and they now yet have ANOTHER team with a bulls-eye on
their rear end.
The twins have the map, and Ken and Gerard go the other
way. See the quote all the way above about the models
trusting Ken and Gerard? Bye-bye. 'No more alliances.
From here on out, it's just us against everyone'. And
it's you against your horrible sense of direction,
because the reason why everyone didn't follow the models
is because you went the wrong way.
That's not to say that other teams don't have their own
problems. The rest of the teams, without the maps, are
lost, and they are following Ken and Gerard - but they
won't be following them for long because Ken and
Gerard's tire blows a flat. They try to slow down to
hinder the teams from passing them, but that doesn't
work as all of the lost teams move ahead of them while
they limp into a gas station.
But they are all better than Andre and Damon, who are
seen oversleeping on the way to Innsbrook and their
train passing the stop. Unless that's a direct train to
Fussen, that's not going to improve your standing in the
Derek and Drew, who do have the map, are the first team
to figure out where they have to go and finish in
second. John Vite and Jill come in third and Teri and
Ian come in fourth. Ken and Gerard, now at least an hour
behind everyone else because of their tire mishap, are
now in fifth, but they are still in it. Andre and Damon,
thanks to their lack of travel plans and sleeping
habits, get to Innsbruck, don't get to do any of the
goodies in the episode and are directed to go straight
to the Pit Stop in Fussen.
At the end of this episode, there are two teams that
have not used the Fast Forward yet. One of them is John
Vito and Jill, who are in great shape because they are
currently in third and since they are not in any danger
of being eliminated right now, can hold on to it until
they either need it or are at the end of the race.
The other team is Andre and Damon, who thanks to Flo and
an unfortunate travel plan that they were stuck with due
to the end of last episode, will not get to use it. They
give Phil back the dollar that they were given as
expenses for this leg of the tour. That pretty much
accounts their plight this episode; they were not a
dollar short, but they were a day late.
All sorts of tension was
sprouting up last week. Tension between Flo and Zach,
tension between Ken and Gerard and the models, who have
now dropped their alliance. Tension between Teri and Ian
and the models, who refused to share info despite Teri
and Ian keeping the models in the front pack. Tension
between Andre and Damon and the flight schedule, and
that one turns out to be fatal, as they get eliminated
last episode. The only team that does not have tension
is John Vito and Jill - and they are the only team to
still have a Fast Forward. Does that mean that they come
in first place this week? Or is it a precursor for them
being the next team eliminated?
But right now the focus will start on Flo and Zach, as
they are the first team to start this leg of the race.
Is Flo and Zach making a pact with the models? Derek and
Drew seem to think so, as they are ogling Flo. Their
first mission for the leg - go find a needle (or a clue)
in a hay stack. They get there, and Zach climbs up at
the top, being silly. Lo and behold, there's the clue,
and they have to go to the Rhinefall in Schauffhausen,
The models are next, followed quickly by John Vito and
Jill. Flo and Zach get to the ferry, which doesn't open
until the next morning, giving once again the teams a
chance to catch up. John Vito/Jill and the Doublemint
Twins find their clues while Teri and Ian are
approaching them. Both teams tell Teri and Ian that they
couldn't find the flag - but they all lied and Teri and
Ian quickly find that out. They get the flag and away
they go. Ken and Gerard also get everything done long
before the ferry starts, and we are all back to square
Teri and Ian get to vent some steam in front of the
lying models and John/Vito and Jill, who all looked like
the cat who ate the gold fish. Everyone gets in the same
subway to the Rhinefall and everyone gets to a taxi -
except John Vito and Jill, who get delayed by 10 minutes
since they waited for a taxi without a driver in it.
The models get to the flag site first - and realize that
you need a boat to get to the flag. The first four teams
get the first boat - John Vito and Jill get the second
one. The mini-island that holds the clue only has space
for one boat at a time, and the boats switch off when
another boat needs to get to the island. All of the
first teams go up - and they all leave their bags on the
boat. That turns out to be a huge tactical error, as the
first boat has to leave to let the second boat in.
That second boat contains John Vito and Jill, and Jill
keeps the second boat there while John Vito goes up and
gets the clue. The other teams can't go back on that
boat, because they left all of their stuff on the first
boat - the one that just pulled out. So John Vito and
Jill move from last to first in one fell swoop as they
get the flag and get out of there, leaving the other
four teams wishing for a cannonball to sink the boat
John Vito and Jill is on.
Time to go back to Zurich and go to a place called the
Lindenhof, where they have to find an officer who will
lead them to an underground cavern. John Vito and Jill
are told to take a bus to the train station, but the
other teams are told that there is one within walking
distance. They all wind up taking the same train and
everyone is back to even again.
Now Ken and Gerard are talking to Flo about Zach, while
Gerard, the gay brother in the Ken and Gerard
brotherhood, is starting to talk about him and the
models. Oooookayyyy - let's get back to the race. All of
the teams get to the underground - and there is a
detour. There is a safe in front of each team. Inside
each safe is the next clue. The Detour is the choice
that the teams have to make in terms of how to open the
Count the Money - count the Swiss currency - the total
amount will be the combination to the vault. It will
take them a while, but they will be at the vault.
Run The Numbers - Get numerical answers to a scavenger
hunt which could take them as far as a mile away from
The models and Flo and Zach do wind up allying with each
other and split answers for the vault numbers. John
Vito/Jill and Teri/Ian also do the scavenger hunt - but
on their own. Ken and Gerard decide to stay there and
count the currency.
Derek/Drew, Flo/Zach, and John Vito/Jill all get there
first - and all get it wrong the first time. Seeing that
they were almost done with the hunt, Ken and Gerard get
sick of the money and they now go and do the scavenger
hunt. The second time back, John Vito and Jill get it
done first and they are off to the next clue, which is
in Grindwald, Switzerland - 121 miles away - and find a
field with the next route marker.
The models and Flo/Zach are the next 2 teams done, and
they meet John Vito and Jill at they train station - but
they all miss the bus and have to wait an hour for the
next one. Meanwhile, Ken and Gerard get the combination
safe done, and they aren't sharing answers with
Teri/Ian, who are the only team left at the vault.
Teri/Ian do get it done and they meet all of the teams
together a the train station. They all get out at the
same time - and the Models get to the clue first. The
clue signifies that it's Roadblock time. One of the two
people on the team have to relive the legend of William
Tell by shooting an arrow off of a mannequin's head. Ian
is a retired police officer and Zach has had some
experience in archery, so they should have the
advantage, right? Zach does, as they are the first to
get the final clue for this leg - go to the Chalet
Arnika, which is the Pit Stop for the race.
Ken and Gerard are in second, followed by Teri and Ian
and the models. John Vito and Jill pick the wrong person
to shoot the arrow, as John Vito has a massive problem
with the old-fangled archery set and he has to switch
hands. You ever have to do anything that you usually do
with one hand and switch doing it with the other? It can
be frustrating, and the next target John Vito may be
shooting at could be the manufacturers of the
It's now a run to the Pit Stop, and everyone catches up
to Zach and a winded out Flo. Meanwhile, John Vito and
Jill finally get done, and its a race to get to the
chalet. Teri and Ian take the street, while the other
three teams go into a pasture. John Vito and Jill are
walking up, and hope that someone else gets lost worse
than they do.
It won't be the three team group - they get instructions
that it's another 400 meters. Ken and Gerard take what
they think is a short cut and separate from the rest of
the pack. John Vito and Jill find a taxi stand. Flo and
Zach finally find the Pit Stop but the models out race
them to come in first place. They have now won the
obligatory Kodak easy share camera. Flo and Zach come in
second. In third place are Teri and Ian, who stay true
to their path.
John Vito and Jill do take the taxi - and they see the
Pit Stop. Ken and Gerard's short cut was equally as
lousy - but they also see it, and it;s a mad dash to it.
Ken and Gerard do wind up closer that John Vito/Jill,
and they barely beat them to it - they come in fourth,
while John Vito and Jill are in fifth.
But those wacky producers get tricky with us, and this
is the first of three non-elimination laps. It's usually
done earlier, but John Vito and Jill will be happy that
they changed the pattern this year, as they are spared.
'We needed a taste of this' says Jill. They are still
the team in control as they still have the Fast Forward.
If they decide to use it, then one of the other four
teams will be saying Bon Voyage.
