Racing in Le Mans!
Fights in Marseilles! Descending the Gorges du Blavet!
And Weezer/Geezer fall by the wayside in Provence.
The Models (Tian/Jaree) are the first to depart at 2.26
am. Their first task? From Marseilles, fly to Amsterdam.
Find the Magere Brug (a bridge), look for the clue box.
And I notice the liberties taken by the show - since
when is "the outskirts of town" (in reference to
Ste-Remy-de-Provence) equal to 74 miles?
Mille/Chuck along with the clowns, both depart at 2.41
am. The clowns have decided to concentrate on
themselves, not others. The Supremes leave at 2.45. They
say they're getting along great, unlike the models, they
Cut to the airport. The models are first at the Air
France ticket counter and park themselves on the floor.
Reichen/Chip leave Provence at 2.54. And it's pretty odd
when they decided to sightsee on route. David/Jeff leave
at 2.57. Kelly/Jon leave at three bells. Kelly doesn't
like that she has to read the maps.
The BFG are the last to go at 4.19. Can they stave off
elimination three weeks in a row?
Chip/Reichen arrive at the airport and see the line.
Chip decides to ask Tian to book tickets for them, and
Tian says, "sure, I'll ask Jaree". Chip interprets this
as "sure". We'll see. In any case, Millie/Chuck look
worried. Millie calls Tian on it and she says they
haven't decided. Chuck/Millie decided to go look for
The clowns join forces once again with Millie/Chuck and
head for the British Airways counter.
The models get their flight, and after threatening to
punch Chip's eyes out if they cut, Kelly/Jon get theirs.
Looks like Kelly/Jon will be looking around elsewhere.
The models will be flying through Paris - Charles de
Gaulle along with Kelly/Jon.
The clowns, the supremes, Millie/Chuck and Chip/Reichen
all get a flight leaving at 6.50 am on British Airways.
David/Jeff and BFG get a flight - but it's to Orly, and
then their connection is through Charles de Gaulle, and
they only have an hour. Having been to Paris before, I
can tell you this will NOT be easy.
6.25 departure for Kelly/Jon and the models. 6.50
departure for the BA group.
Cut to D/J and BFG arriving in Paris, and getting their
taxis. And guess what kids? There's an accident, and
Kelly/Jon and the models hit Amsterdam first. Clowns,
Supremes, Millie/Chuck and Chip/Reichen all arrive three
minutes later. Millie/Chuck grab a taxi, everyone else
gets a train, except Tian/Jaree who buy a map and have
to wait for the next one.
Millie/Chuck are the first to find the bridge. Teams
must now choose a boat and drive themselves to the
Scheepvaart Museum. Although they are first, they're
having problems, and everyone else catches up.
Back in Paris, David/Jeff and BFG finally arrive at
Charles de Gaulle to find out the flight is gone. No
surprise there! They are able to rebook on a KLM flight
Returning to our navigators, they're having problems
with the route's canals. HA! I'm brilliant. The models
arrive, and let the problems begin. And Millie/Chuck are
arguing. So are Kelly/Jon.
The clowns are first to the DETOUR. If this was in a
late night slot on a Saturday, and you know Amsterdam,
you might be able to figure out a couple of choices.
That being said, I'm happy it's not at 12.30 am on a
Monday, so here's what it really is:
500 KILOGRAMS: carry cheese while wearing wooden clogs
until you tip the scales at 500 kg exactly. 15 FEET:
drive further than the first option, dig bare handed
through cow manure for the clue.
The clowns decided to go for cow manure. Chuck/Millie,
still on the canals, turn around, as do the Supremes.
Both teams feel they need to regroup. The models look
like they're going to self-combust. Especially after
Tian grabs the map out of Jaree's hand.
Reichen/Chip are second to Scheepvaart. European cheeses
for them. Millie declares that they should go for the
fast forward. They have to get to the Molen van Sloten
windmill in North Amsterdam and ride it! Ten revolutions
BFG and David/Jeff have finally arrived in Amsterdam.
The clowns arrive at the manure pile first. Kelly/Jon
decide to go for "poo".
Millie/Chuck get to the windmill. And they're off! They
both feel the time along was some much needed peace.
They can now skip the Detour and the Road Block (good
call, guys!) and proceed directly to the pit stop in
Muiden at the Kasteel Muiderslot.
The Supremes go for poop. The clowns seem to be having
too much fun - they're slinging dung at each other. And
one loses a boot! But the find the clue anyway - they
have to find the smoker statue in the village of
BFG and David/Jeff get their Amsterdam clue. The models
once again are fighting. They've lost about 90 minutes
with the bickering. But they finally find it. They're
Kelly/Jon arrive at pooville, and instantly Jon finds
himself knee deep in poo quicksand.
Chip/Reichen arrive at the world of cheese and start
carrying. The crowds gathered around seem to enjoy
themselves. In their first run, they've moved 72 of 500
kilograms needed. Better get used to those shoes, boys.
Kelly/Jon have found the clue in the poo. Both BFG and
David/Jeff arrive at the museum around the same time.
The Supremes have found their poo clue.
Chip/Reichen finally finish. The clowns are first to the
roadblock. They are to immerse themselves in the world
of a Dutch fisherman, by transferring from a boat's
floor to a box 25 eels with their bare hands. Al chooses
to do it but he wished he hadn't.
Millie/Chuck are first at the pit stop - and they've won
a seven day cruise as a bonus.
The clowns have found the eels and finished. They're off
to the castle. The Supremes have just done pooville and
they're trying to turn around when they get stuck.
Thankfully, someone comes along and tows them out.
Kelly/Jon get to the roadblock, and Jon's doing it, and
he does it quickly. The clowns are second to the pit
stop. In the car, Tian is yelling at Jaree. Dave says
that he looks stupid with his shoes on.
Kelly/Jon are third to the pit stop. Reichen/Chip and
the Supremes have made it to eel town. Reichen and
Sheree both do the task handily. The Supremes ask
Reichen to help them, which he does. Tian suspects that
Jaree is trying to sabotage them. David/Jeff finish the
pooville challenge. Tian/Jaree want to throw it at each
other. BFG finish. The models find a poo clue quite
Reichen/Chip are fourth, the Supremes are fifth. David
is in and out quickly in regards to the eels. Jaree does
it too - her first roadblock - way to pitch in, girl!
Dave does it for the BFGs. David/Jeff are sixth.
Were down to two. Jaree says that although she shouldn't
think about it, she wouldn't mind being eliminated.
But they'll have to wait another episode, as somehow,
they end up coming in seventh. Tian's stunned. Jaree
seems impartial. And that means the inevitable has
happened, the BFG are the last to go. Dave says the one
thing that he noticed the most along the race track was
that he really misses his wife.
NEXT TIME: Racing through India, a very challenging road
block, and a harrowing train ride.
July 3, 2003
Last time: Chuck and
Millie are trying to get through in the clutch, Tian and
Jaree can't stand each other very much, and the BFG's go
Dutch, and are eliminated.
Millie/Chuck start the middle of the night race at 2.25
am. It's off to Mumbai, India (formerly Bombay) for our
teams, and they have to find gate number one in film
city. Time to get to the airports, then. Chuck says
Millie and he are "super competitive". They're on the
cell phone in the taxi to book a flight.
The clowns are next at a quarter past three. Kelly/Jon
are next at 3.34. Jon says Kelly has stopped panicking
so much. Millie/Chuck find a KLM flight for 10.25 but
think they can do better.
Reichen/Chip are fourth at 4.26. The Supremes take off
at 4.43. Sheree says they're becoming closer. They're
taking a train to the airport to save dinero.
Dave/Jeff leave at 5.05, calling ahead like Chuck/Millie
to get a flight. We see that that team and the clowns
have got the flight on KLM. The models are last at 5.42
am. Tian has decided to bite her tongue and let Jaree do
Reichen/Chip are in a dilemma. Do they take the flight
that gets in a half hour earlier but switches in Milan?
They discuss it with the Supremes but the ladies are
taking KLM with the others. R/C can't decide... but
they'll have to quick, as they're running out of time
for which to print out the tickets. They decide to go
for it, and they make the connection no problem.
Everyone else takes the KLM flight.
Reichen/Chip seem overwhelmed at the airport. Chip is
overcome with the state of affairs in Mumbai - he
wonders how it got to be so bad.
The pack arrives at 11.30. Kelly's worse nightmare is
coming true - she's not a big fan of small spaces. The
models enjoy the new culture.
Reichen/Chip are the first to find the clue box. They
must find Studio 10 in the Bollywood film complex while
riding on bikes. After they have a rest that is, as
hours of operation don't start until 9.30 the next
morning. Everyone else arrives shortly thereafter and
they enjoy a big slumber party on a big slab of
And before you know it, it's morning. Jon (of the
clowns) states that not very often you realize how lucky
you are, after looking at the ruins all around him.
Now it's time for the Tour d'Inde. No, not really, but
close enough. David/Jeff are the first to find the next
clue, who leads them to a...
DETOUR: SUDS or DUDS
SUDS: take a bag of dirty laundry and wash it in an
outdoor Laundromat. The clue is on one of the dirty
articles of clothing.
DUDS: locate a hard to find clothing shop, search
through hundreds of traditional "sarees" to find the
clue printed on one of them.
Both detours can only be accessed through the jam packed
public transit system.
Everyone is relatively close in Bollywood - and once
they've got their clues, everyone seems to be running in
different directions, whereas Reichen/Chip still use
their bikes. Concept! They then take a bus to the city,
along with David/Jeff, Kelly/Jon and Millie/Chuck.
The Supremes then miss that bus, as do the clowns, but
Tian/Jaree manage to locate one.
Chip/Reichen are now at the train station, and they
don't know what they're in for. They have to push like
nothing they've ever seen. David/Jeff and Kelly/Jon are
next, and they can't believe what's going on. They
actually miss the first train they have a chance to
take, as they've no idea how to get into what appears to
be a can of sardines.
Kelly/Jon say they have to push - and once again Kelly's
nightmare is coming true (small spaces). Speaking of
which, Chuck is very hesitant to get on once Millie is
in, but he does manage to beat his fear this time. Tian/Jaree
shove in, and Tian complains that someone grabbed her
boob. This is definitely a harrowing experience for all.
Tian/Jaree feel like they're second-class citizens in
India. The Supremes are in dead last, and they're lost.
The Clowns get a place in first class on the train but
in the grand scheme of things, it's not much more space.
Reichen/Chip are first to SUDS. But they walk by the
bundle of laundry... and have to go back to the
beginning, and they do find it. Kelly survives the train
ride, as she and Jon and David/Jeff start their Maytag
Reichen/Chip are first to wash the right cloth. They
have to get to the Mundo Universal Engineering at
David/Jeff are second. Kelly/Jon are falling behind but
they find their clue (after Kelly gets soaked).
Kelly/Jon get on a bus - which Kelly says is "much
quicker than the train".
Millie/Chuck overshoot the bundle - and Millie starts
washing someone else's clean clothes!
Models push through and off the train, and head for the
cleaners, and arrive find the bundle about the same time
that Chuck does.
The clowns start heading for Duds. Supremes hail a bus
to the train station. Chuck/Millie find the clue and
head for the docks. Clowns have major problems finding
the shop, but they do eventually, whereas the Supremes
aren't liking this leg at all - mind you, at least
they're on the train now. The Clowns start the search.
Models find their clue, and hop into a cab.
The Supremes make it to the Laundromat, while Al finds
the right dud for the Clowns, and they can move on.
Supremes go through the whole load, don't find it, and
then have to go through the pile again.
After the ad break, they find the clue, and hail a cab.
Chip/Reichen and Dave/Jeff are first to the ROAD BLOCK.
Smells fishy. They have to find 20 Palai fish in a pile
with multiple types of fish.
Jeff and Reichen help each other find the vendor, and
start piling fish into their baskets. Once they're off,
Reichen comments how wonderful it is to be piled with
fish guts. Chip/Reichen are first to complete. They must
now find the Gateway to India for the pit stop.
Dave/Jeff are second.
Kelly nominates Jon to do the road block, while Chip/Reichen
and Dave/Jeff are drag racing taxis. In a foot race,
Dave/Jeff are first to arrive. And they win a seven day
cruise as a bonus. Chip/Reichen are right behind and are
team number two.
Jon seems to be just tossing fish into the basket, but
in the end, they're good to go. Next up are Chuck, Al
and Tian. All three ask questions about their catch of
the day. Chuck has to go back as he's only got 10/20. Al
has 8, while Tian has done the best, with 14. Still, all
have to return for their missing fish.
Kelly/Jon, after Jon's request for a hug, are declared
third. Chuck and Al both have their new fish stock.
Tian's a bit behind. Jaree's happy that Tian hasn't been
yelling at her this much this leg. All three teams are
off to the pit stop.
The Supremes finally arrive at the docks, and complete
the fish task on the first try.
Chuck/Millie are fourth. Tian/Jaree are team number
five, and they feel they've mead headway. The clowns are
sixth, which makes the Supremes seven, and this time
it's an unlucky number. They're out - and one can
honestly say that it was just due to a slightly bad leg.
NEXT TIME: Kelly/Jon get nasty! And other teams get down
and dirty! (If you've seen the promos, you'll
Last time: Chip/Reichen
experience culture shock. Instead of the train, racing
women would rather walk. The models civilly talk. A
fishy roadblock. And the Supremes are too late at the
docks - and are eliminated.
In Mumbai, Dave/Jeff are the leaders, leaving at 12.51
am. Their first task: travel by taxi to Panvel, then
onto Ernakulam Junction. Take the train - 860 miles!
Jeff thinks he and Dave can win the whole lot.
Reichen/Chip leave an entire minute later. Reichen says
he's made "significant blunders". Dave/Jeff realize that
their train ride will last an entire day.
Kelly/Jon are third at 1.19. Kelly says Jon's selfish -
and has to remember that she's part of thhe team too!
They take a taxi to Victoria Station so as to link up to
Panvel. Millie/Chuck are fourth at 1.34. Millie says
they're going to try and work together a little better.
The daring duo of the models are fifth at 1.36. Jon and
Al (go clowns!) are gone at 1.37.
The last three teams all depart towards Panvel, but the
clowns find out it's better to go to Victoria Terminal.
So they do. Kelly/Jon find out that the station doesn't
open until four, so they and the clowns each find a
hotel. Kelly/Jon fight over whether to leave at six am
or seven; Kelly wins, they're leaving at six. She
doesn't want to be squished.
Tian/Jaree have an ever so slight problem with their
taxi driver: HE'S GOING DOWN THE WRONG SIDE OF THE
ROAD!!! And his lights are off! But they're okay in the
Dave/Jeff end up at the OLD Panvel station (read: ‘wrong')
and wake someone up. They then get to the NEW station,
which while slightly rundown, is the right one. They
decide to go to a hotel.
Millie/Chuck, Chip/Reichen and the Models all make it to
the train station and decide to camp out in their space
Jon/Kelly make it to Victoria station in plenty of time
to get a seat. They catch a 6.38 am train. The clowns
get one about a half hour later, and have some
thought-provoking commentary on the social system they
are struck by.
Kelly asks Jon to watch her back, and as a joke, he
gooses her. Jon thinks it's funny, Kelly doesn't. Big
All teams are now on the 24-hour train ride. There are
varying thoughts of how comfortable the train is. While
on their journey, most teams upgrade to first class at a
cost of $16 each. Save for Chuck/Millie, who decided to
save some big bucks, and hopefully avoid the last place
The models enjoy the idea of doing nothing and watching
the scenery. It's a nice time just to take a breather.
Millie/Chuck like being in second class away from the
other teams. Kelly/Jon go into their five-year-old
insulting mode on the topic of Millie's facial features.
Hey guys, the playground is on your left. Don't let the
door hit you on the way out.
Finally, the train arrives at Ernakulam Junction.
Everyone's out quickly and finds taxis. Teams have been
told to search along Highway 47 and look for a billboard
that give directions to their next clue.
Chip/Reichen are the last ones out due to the checking
of gas levels. Reichen's telling him to just get in and
Teams can't believe how many signs there are -
thousands, almost. Dave/Jeff are first to the route
marker. They must continue in their taxi to the sports
field in Alleppey.
We see the Models, Kelly/Jon and the Clowns all finding
the route marker. But Chuck/Millie are out of gas.
They've got to make a pre-pit stop pit stop. Chip/Reichen
find the route marker, but they're still in last.
Chuck/Millie's car overheats, and they're falling
After the break, Chip/Reichen are out of gas. And unlike
Chip/Reichen, they have to pay for it. Chuck/Millie's
cab is finally going. Dave/Jeff are first to the next
clue box, and the clowns trail them. It's time for a...
ROAD BLOCK: one person must be pulled through the mud by
bulls. If they hang onto the end: clue received. If they
can't: it's to the back of the line. David and Al are
the first two to go.
Back in the taxis, Reichen feels bad that he didn't pick
the right one. He sure didn't - the models and Kelly/Jon
arrive at the road block. Tian and Jon are the next to
David is first through the mud pit. They must now find
the marker on Beach Road. Al confesses that he didn't
want to think of what was in the mud. Tian's first go...
is a bust. She makes it about three feet. Jon does it no
problem, and as soon as he gets out, Kelly is rushing
him! Tian's second go... is a no go.
Millie/Chuck arrive in fifth. Tian's third go... is good
to go, and now she looks like she's going to do her own
poster spread. Tian says she's happy she's getting a
facial. Chuck gets it on the first try. Chip/Reichen are
last. Chip gets into the mud and gets it done.
The next route marker reveals... DETOUR.
BASKET: load ten live chickens into bicycle bearing
baskets and teams navigate themselves to a chicken farm.
TRUNKS: load two bundles of "coyer" onto an elephant and
find the marked shop.
Dave/Jeff and clowns both take elephants. So do
Kelly/Jon, although they say that it's not like riding a
horse. David says it's not comfortable. The clowns
agree. Tian is thrilled that they get an elephant ride.
Millie/Chuck take elephants.
The models have left one thing out - their cargo! So
they lose time. Chip/Reichen decided to go for chickens.
Jon comments that two hours dragged by bulls is better
than five minutes on the elephant. David/Jeff are still
first, and they must find "The Finishing Point", where
the pit stop is.
The clowns are second to complete. Chuck/Millie have got
lost, so have Kelly/Jon. Reichen is trying to direct
Chip (albeit unsuccessfully). First to the stop in
Alleppey is David/Jeff. And they've won a cruise for
their troubles. The clowns are second. Jon/Kelly are
third to drop off their cargo, then Chuck/Millie do as
well. Chip/Reichen are having major problems with their
chicken bike. Maybe a call to Chicken George is in
order? Then they're at the "Chicken House", which is not
"Geogi's Chicken Farm". Tsk tsk. At this point, the
models and Chip/Reichen are off to the races at the same
Kelly/Jon are third. Chuck/Millie are close behind and
are fourth. Phil keeps saying "you are the __________ to
arrive", so I suspect there's time penalties that we're
not aware of.
It's a taxi race to the finish... and Chip/Reichen are
fifth. Which means our models, Tian and Jaree, are last,
and are eliminated. Which is a shame, because they're a
good team. They comment that once they stopped fighting,
NEXT TIME: Jon buts in line. Millie gets pushed out of
reservation. Jon gets his shirt in a knot. And Millie
July 17, 2003
Last time: A long train
ride. A muddy bull ride. A short elephant ride. And for
Tian/Jaree, then end of a wild ride - they've been
For the first time in a while, we get to see teams
mingling in between legs. Chip/Reichen are celebrating
their first anniversary, so they tell the remaining
teams that they're a couple. Chuck doesn't seem amused.
Chuck/Millie reveal that they've been dating for twelve
years and are virgins. Kelly/Jon find this hilarious -
they say they've been living in sin for years.
Enough of the small talk. David/Jeff are first off at
4.02 am. They must fly to Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia and
find the Monsopiad Cultural Village. Clowns are next at
4.06 am. Kelly/Jon are third at 4.16. These two teams
get involved in the usual taxi drag race. Not far behind
are Chuck/Millie at 4.16 (?) and Chip/Reichen at 4.17.
Dave/Jeff arrive at the Cochin airport. A porter
suggests taking Jet Airways to Mumbai and then fly to
Malaysia from there. They have to find domestics,
though. Kelly/Jon catch up with David/Jeff, and so do
the clowns - they're all at the ticket wicket waiting
for it to open.
Chip/Reichen get directed to the Air India office to get
a ticket. Millie/Chuck find Chip/Reichen at the office.
Reichen doesn't like Chip/s work being stolen by Millie,
and he tries to close the door. Millie's foot is lodged
in there pretty good, so it really doesn't work.
Back at domestics, there's problems. The locals have
been jumping line, and Jon (of Jon/Kelly) is not happy.
They make it through anyway. Chip/Reichen are looking at
booking Madrass to Kuala Lumpur but are told to go to a
different domestic terminal.
Kelly/Jon, Dave/Jeff and the clowns all book an 8.30 to
Mumbai. Chuck/Millie are getting upset at each other.
They consult the clowns and get the same 8.30 flight.
Chip/Reichen are trying to book a Malaysian Air ticket
through Jet Airlines, which surprisingly, they can't do.
They get an offer from a travel agent to go with him to
his downtown office where his boss will meet them and
try to book them the ticket they want, but it's a
gamble. As the other teams depart, the owner of the
travel agency isn't there to meet them and C/R are
After the break, he finally arrives and tells them...
there's no space.
In Mumbai, Kelly/Jon book a flight to Singapore, while
Millie/Chuck get a ticket all the way to Kota Kinabalu.
Same one in fact. The Clowns decide to go through Kuala
Lumpur. Dave/Jeff will go through Singapore.
Back in Cochin, Chip/Reichen book a flight to Kota
Kinabalu, but they're now several hours behind.
Kelly/Jon and Millie/Chuck both arrive in Singapore.
While Kelly/Jon decide to crash on the floor in
anticipation of their mid-morning flight, thus evoking
memories for me sleeping in Buffalo en route to see "The
Price is Right", Millie/Chuck go looking for a better
flight. Through Millie's persistence, they land it. They
leave at 8.40, a full two hours ahead of Kelly/Jon, and
Dave/Jeff who are now in Singapore as well.
It turns out that Millie/Chuck, the clowns, and Chip/Reichen
are all on the same flight to Kota Kinabalu. Dave/Jeff
and Kelly/Jon are on a later flight.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, our out of flight
entertainment will begin. Kindly put your headsets in
the pocket in front of you, and put your tray table up
and seat back in the full upright position before we
land. Thank you kindly.
Millie/Chuck are first to the Monsopiad Cultural
Village, where they receive a traditional cultural good
luck blessing and their clue - they have to head to the
village's boat jetty. The clowns are second. Chip/Reichen
approach... no, wait... pass the cultural village, and
have to go a mile down the road to turn around.
Kelly/Jon and David/Jeff have now arrived in Kota
Kinabalu. Chip/Reichen are third to village, and Reichen
feels that the ceremony was like getting married again.
Chuck/Millie are first to the jetty. They're on the way
to a fishing trawler, which contains their next clue.
Jeff says the lady at the ceremony looks like his
grandmother but is very much with it.
Millie/Chuck are first to the DETOUR.
NET: catch fifteen fish contained in marked pens. TRAP:
pull up a weighted lobster trap.
Millie/Chuck tell their boat to go to TRAP. So do the
clowns. Kelly/Jon are the last to complete the ceremony,
although Jon thought it was very slow moving.
For some reason, Millie/Chuck are driven to NET. They
decide to stick with it. The clowns are pulling at TRAP.
Millie/Chuck decide to physically get in the pen to help
with the effort. In what might be the most brilliant bit
of on screen graphics yet, it reads "MILLIE & CHUCK: 4
fish caught" and then changes quickly to "3 fish caught"
when one jumps out.
Clowns are having problems with traps but they end up
being first to complete the Detour. They are told to
take their boat to Manukan Island for their next clue.
Reichen/Chip arrive at NET after requesting TRAP. Unlike
Chuck/Millie, they do insist on going back to the right
Graphic: 8 fish caught.
"We've got to drain this water, Chuck!"
Graphic: 7 fish caught.
Chip/Reichen get their clue. They're in second.
SPLASH! Millie falls in. That would be a bummer, then.
But somehow they miraculously complete, and are now in
The clowns have hit the island and they've hit a ROAD
BLOCK. One person has to hit targets with bow and arrow,
blow guns and spears. Survivor: Pulau Tiga, anyone?
Jon chooses to do it for the clowns. Once he and any
other teams are done, they run down the beach to hit the
pit stop. Chip/Reichen are second. Chip's doing it. And
not surprisingly, Chuck does it for his team. All three
are shooting at the same time.
Dave/Jeff and Kelly/Jon have hit the boat jetty. Chuck
is feeling stressed. Jon completes target #1. Now Chip
is done the first obstacle, but before he gets there,
Jon's onto the final stage. Chuck's still having
David/Jeff decide to go for NET. Kelly/Jon are trying
TRAP. Dave/Jeff arrive but stupidly, they choose an
UNMARKED pen. They get really small fish from the wrong
bin, and have to do it again. Kelly/Jon are having
serious problems with the TRAP.
Chip has caught up with Jon at spears. Chuck finally
finishes bow and arrow. Reichen/Chip are the first to
finish the road block, but seem oblivious to where the
path to the pit stop is. Jon/Al are done almost
immediately afterwards, which leads to Chip/Reichen
realizing this, screaming "Jon, let's win it together!".
The clowns are first, with Chip/Reichen pulling in
second. The clowns pick up a trip to Mexico.
Chuck's done with the blow darts, and David/Jeff finally
complete NET. Kelly/Jon are having problems with TRAP -
they let it go. They end up going to NET. The trials of
8 fish caught... 7 fish caught... the total is sinking
for Kelly/Jon. Chuck nails the spear, and they're third.
David/Jeff are done the first, then the second, then the
third, and they're in fourth for this leg. Which means,
after arguments in the deadly weapons challenge, they're
And they're bloody lucky too, as this is a
non-elimination leg, so they're still in the race.
NEXT TIME: climbing to the top! Bad decisions rise to
the top! And whose car will end up on top!
And a postlude: Up here in Canada, Outdoor Life Network
has an "encore presentation" of AR on Sunday night, and
we get the full credit crawl - how exciting!
