PostSubject: Episode 6 - "This is Wicked Strange"    March 22nd 2012, 9:27 pm

First off, finale information has been confirmed:

Quote :
FINALE INFO
SUNDAY, MAY 6
8 pm The Amazing Race | After traveling five continents, 22 cities and nearly 40,000 miles, the series’ 20th installment concludes in a special two-hour season finale as the final four teams race through Japan and onto Honolulu, where one will win the $1 million prize.

Next:




Shoutout to RFF for the youtube videos. It's speculated that a FF is in this challenge, which has me worried that there will be very little variety in first place winners this season.

Two Teams hit the hay to see how well they stack up and Racers break out the sponges for an oily detour during the series first-ever trip to Azerbaijan, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS!

Very lowkey episode thus far. I dunno if I'd be able to do that simulator. Wowsers.

Kudos to those contestants that made it through without freaking.

On our way back from The Philippines to the states, our family vacationed in Hawaii for a week. I was about 12 and a good swimmer. A rogue tide pulled me under and over several times. I couldn't determine which way was up. Luckily, my dad was able to grab my hair and pull me to safety. I'll never forget that horrifying feeling of not knowing which way was up or down. Surprised

It's nice to have an episode where none of the couples had drama. 2 weeks from now looks explosive for Rachel/Vanessa, lol. Nothing to say about Team Jersey. I prepared for their leaving as soon as I realized I was starting to like them.

Remember Ragan dismantling Rachel in the BB backyard during Rachel's 24 hour visit ? I expect Vanessa to do the same thing. From the promo, V's up 2-0 already ...

Thanks Moe! I'm taping TAR tonight because I'm watching the Lakers game Razz Sad to read that the Jersey Shore guys got the boot though. I can't wait to see how they went from 2nd last week to last this week.

At least someone new won, but I was hoping it would be Mark and Bopper or Brendon and Rachel. Even Nary and Jamie.

I think an awards show is airing next week. CMA's? Or some other country music awards show.

Interesting that tonight Brenchel was the most invisible team. I guess all they have to offer is their scripted 'meltdowns' ... sad really ...

hugh, i am seeing it different, i think they are just running a semi-good race, they had their freak out (like at least one team does every season), but besides that they are head in the game, getting the task done and not really engaging with other couple unless provoked....while yes it can be boring, steady does sometimes win the race...

Oh, I agree that they are running a pretty good race. Most tasks done in a timely manner, could have won a leg or two, never close to being eliminated.


Here's what I think their main problem is ... they were brought on this race, not because they are good competitors but because they are supposed to bring the drama. That's it. And frankly, that's insulting to them.


So when is this drama supposed to occur ?

1. Interactions with other teams. Great theory, but 90% of the race is just you and your partner. I guess you can fight with the cameraman and the microphone guy but that stuff ain't gonna be shown. There is limited interaction with other teams other than at airports and at tasks. Plenty of opportunity for drama with other players when you're locked in a house in LA for three months. Much less opportunity on the race.

2. Problems when doing the tasks. This doesn't crop up when you're doing 85% of the tasks in a timely manner. There were two true opportunities for task drama - the cow math task, which was unfortunately diffused quickly with the assistance of the KY guys, and the sausage ID task, where the drama was vastly overdone and overplayed, partly due to the lack of drama earlier in the season.

3. Problems with navigating or bad cab drivers. I do not think Brenchel has had problems with either of these yet.

4. Just not getting along with each other. We've seen Davchel fight a lot. Vanessa and Ralph were fighting last episode. The other teams ? Not really, other than maybe the twins. Have Brenchel fought while working at tasks, like Davchel do all the time ? Not really. Maybe the sausage one. So where have Brenchel's meltdowns occurred ? Between tasks. Trying to find marked clueboxes or marked entrances. Most of the meltdowns have come out of nowhere - the edit suggesting it's usually caused by a Brendon comment. Interesting that they seem to have missed filming every one of these supposed bad Brendon comments. What are the odds of that ?


I guess my final point will be that these 'meltdowns' have been scripted and frankly, scripted badly. Things have been TOO GOOD for Brenchel race-wise so far this season, leading to less opportunity for 'natural' breakdowns. Imagine if we had Brenchel narrowing losing the FF to Davchel ?? Then we'd have GOLD. Because it would be REAL.

As much as I like Brendon and Rachel, I don't want to see them all the time. As long as they do their tasks and stay safe every week, then it's okay with me. If that means less air time, then good. I just hope they make final 3 and come in first when it counts.

We could have used an episode like this, as far as Brenchel exposure is concerned, earlier in the season, honestly. Now it's too late to really experience the teams that seemed entertaining, and we just lost another set, but we at least got to know them a little bit (and thank the heavens they weren't MTV clones). Really, the only two who don't really bring much are Nary/Jamie, but at least they're finally getting some show time.

Wow ... Vanessa sure is a piece of work. I wish we'd been shown the instigating incident (or incidents) in this ongoing feud ... from what we've been shown, Vanessa's attitude toward Rachel seems so randomly nasty. I hope B/R address it post game so we have some kind of clue about how it all started.
I was hoping Vanessa and Ralph would come in last as well ... he's a misogynistic control freak and she's a black hole of negativity and aggression.
The jersey boys made a mistake in going for the fast forward when they knew another team was heading there ... it's too big a risk to do that IMO.

I was very disappointed that Vanessa and and Ralph came in first too.

Brendon did an amazing job in the underwater task.

I'm hoping the final 3 are B/R, The Kentucky Boys, and the "Teachers." It probably won't happen but I can hope.

Art and JJ barely interacted with Kerri and Stacy (from what we've seen), so what the hell did they have to celebrate? That team is so... it's hard for me to find a medium with them, but it's "nice" of them to speak for everyone though about how much team Mississippi is disliked. Annnnnyway, I'll just have to ignore them now. So ridiculous.

Odin - we really have no idea how much they interacted with them. I have read in past seasons where the teams spend their 12 hour rest together. They get a meal, unwind, and sleep. I am sure that they get to know each other pretty well during all these time. Plus, they spend hours on planes, trains, waiting for stuff to open...we certainly don't see much of that. I think they spend more time together than we realize.

Danny and Joey should have left when they saw another team already doing the Fast Forward. But, I guess they thought they could beat the girl. Dummies.

I need to see all these videos. I actually liked JJ and Art this week. It was the first time it looked like they were enjoying themselves. Or JJ was until Art told him to knock it off.

I read somewhere that the explosive Rachel/Vanessa showdown leaves someone in tears. More than likely, that'll be Rachel, so I wonder if we'll get annoying, breakdown Rachel or strong headed, vindictive Rachel that episode.
