Race in Germany

Posted on: February 22, 2009

This week on Amazing Race, the teams went to Munich, Germany. There they had to take a sky gondola and one of the member had to “fly” down the hill using parachute. It’s tricky however, because when wind blew hard, they had to wait until it calmed down. All teams but one chose to run/walk down the hill by foot. For Mel, from father-son team, hiking down the hill wasn’t an option because of his old legs, so he had to wait. After all team left, Mel & Mike felt so hopeless, but miracle happened and their team was the 5th team finishing the first task.

On the second task, it was road block: Balancing Dolly or Austrian Folly. Tammy & Victor who had lead the race since the beginning won this leg of the race by far. I truly believe their team is very solid and strong (just like Nick & Star from last season), and I actually like them better than Nick & Star because Tammy & Victor aren’t cunning and they’re respectful towards other teams. But from next week’s preview, it seems that they’re gonna have some disagreement. If they can resolve the problem quickly and peacefully, I think their team will go far.

On other sibling team, LaKisha & Jennifer, they already showed their frustration towards each other. They did their tasks okay, but they kept on getting lost which wasted time. In the end, there were 4 teams competing to make it to the pitstop. Because it was dark, it was harder to navigate. Linda & Steve were eliminated tonight; it was a little sad because it was close with Christie & Jodi. But, considering that Linda got lost when hiking down the hill, they did pretty good on the rest of the race. And even if they weren’t eliminated, I don’t think Linda & Steve would go far because they’re competing against teams that have younger members.

Love this show!! I’ve been a fan since the first season. Last week’s challenge with the cheese was hilarious! And I think the country bumpkins had to go. I mean how do you know you are going on this show and do no preparing physically? Everyone knows it’s all about the running. I think they just picked that team for comic relief. Let’s keep watching and see what they do next.

Yes, no offense to them, but I think Linda & Steve are not suitable for this game and they should know it from the beginning. Anyways, they’re gone now, and I think the rest of the teams are great competitors, but some are stronger/better/smarter than the others. So we’ll see 🙂
