It's truly AMAZING! What is? Well, The Amazing Race is actually going to start on time here on the East Coast! I don't know if my heart can take it. While my blog pool random pick team is Ralph and Vanessa, I don't like them all that much. I don't care for Rachel, yet if I were on the race with her I wouldn't get all personally insulting to her. I'd just avoid her a lot or have little to say to her. Vanessa definitely has a mean streak in her and I don't like people who bully others even if the others are Brenchel.
The team I'd like best to win and enjoy watching the most is Kentucky -- Mark and Bopper. While they're surely backwoods, they're fun to watch. They get along well together and are doing much better stats-wise than I thought they would. I guess they don't really have much of a chance of winning with such alpha teams all around them. But it would be cool.
As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with major events. But the real fun is in the comments area. Come party with us as you watch the show!
The teams are heading to India. They encounter a Roadblock which has them learning a Bollywood dance routine.
Rachel and Dave are first to the Detour -- Cricket (the game) or Clutch It (rickshaw driving).
Pit Stop --
1. Rachel and Dave -- won a trip to St. Lucia.
2. Brendon and Rachel
Sigh. Mark and Bopper seem to be goners. Mark tried and tried the Bollywood routine and finally gave up when Mark was almost at the point of collapsing.
3. Art and JJ
4. Vanessa and Ralph
All the teams have made it to the Pit Stop and Mark is giving the dance one more time so he won't be a quitter (for his children). He makes it through. They finally make it to the Pit Stop -- NON-PHILIMINATION!!! Woohoo! They're still in the race!
