Still in Russia
Posted March 16, 2009on:
This week on Amazing Race, the teams were still competing in Russia. I’m pretty sure that they’re gonna go to Asia next week. Anyways, the teams had to take an overnight Trans Siberian train, and all the teams got into the same train, so the lead from next week was pretty much wasted. Christie & Jodi who won last leg, became the last team to finish this leg. I’ll elaborate more on how that happened.
Since every team was on the same train, so basically the race started when the train stopped. Everyone dashed like crazy to find taxi. Jen & Kisha who wanted to follow the pack, went to the other side of the station, so they were left behind. Their next task was a detour: Russian Bride or Russian Snowplow, which on both the teams had to drive a stick car. On Russian Bride, the team had to find a bride and deliver her to her groom at church. On Russian Snowplow, they had to be trained in operating the snowplough.
Margie & Luke and Jamie & Cara had been alliance for a while. Jamie & Cara let Margie & Luke followed their taxi so they could go together. Victor & Tammy were tailing them, and they decided to work together with them in doing the Snowplow detour. Since they had to drive themselves to the location, none of them had any clue. They had to stop and ask for directions. After getting direction for himself, Victor decided to leave the 2 teams, but because of traffic, it didn’t work. Instead he made the other 2 teams pissed and they don’t trust his team anymore. In the end, Margie & Luke become the first team to arrive at the pitstop, Tammy & Victor 2nd, and Jamie & Cara 3rd.
The next batch were Mel & Mike and Mark & Michael. Mark & Michael did the snowplough, whereas Mel & Mike and the last 2 teams did the Bride. Jen had trouble driving stick car, whereas Christie & Jodi kept on getting lost. After finishing the road block, where one of the team member had to run marathon in their undies, Jen & Kisha became the 6th team to arrive, leaving Christie & Jodie to be the last. Luckily this leg of the race wasn’t an elimination leg, so they were safe, but they’ll have speed bump next week.
