Race in India
Posted March 22, 2009on:
As expected, this week the leg moved to Asia. First destination in Asia: India. The teams must fly to Jaipur, India and all of them made it to the same flight. Victor and Tammy were victorious in this leg; they left the other teams behind since they left Jaipur airport. First task was to find a Sacred Tree, and the clue there wasn’t usual: it was a rex telephone. Victor & Tammy spotted the phone right away, and zoomed to the next task. By the time left the tree, the other teams were just arriving. The other teams spent sometime before realizing the phone was the clue, but once one of them realized it, everyone got it.
The second task was a road block, one of the members had to care a herd of Maharaja camels by carrying hay and water. By the time the other teams arrive, Victor was halfway of the task. Mel & Margie made a bad call, their sons would do the task better because of their stamina. It was apparent that Mel was very struggling with the task. Luckily, he spotted the baskets, in which they were supposed to carry the hay with, so he sped through the task and become the 2nd team to finish the task.
The third task was a detour: Mover or Shaker. Almost all teams chose Shaker, where they had to dance in fake horse costumes and ask for donations. Once they got 100 rupee, they completed the task. Only 1 team chose mover, and it was Mark & Michael. On Mover, they had to ride a bicycle loaded with drums filled with hay. Once they reached their destination, they must unload the drums and find a small elephant among the hay. The last part took them a while, while other teams already finished shaking, they were still stuck there. The only team they were racing with were Christie & Jodi. They were already behind since they left Jaipur Airport, and they also had to a speed bump, where they had to paint an elephant, but they finished Shaker task quite fast.
So in the end, Tammy & Victor became the 1st team to arrive at the pitstop, no surprise there. Mike & Mel become 2nd, Kisha & Jen, Margie & Luke, and Jamie & Cara 3rd-5th. So it was a race between the stuntmen and the flight attendance. In the end, Mark & Mike beat Christie & Jodi. Next week: Race in Thailand! Stay tuned.
