Still in Thailand
Posted April 12, 2009on:
This week’s race was still in Thailand, but they moved to Bangkok, the capital. All teams boarded the same flight to Bangkok, and Margie & Luke led the race since they left the airport. The first task was to go to a boat dock, where one of the team members had to attach propeller for their boat. Margie did the task fast, followed by Jamie. Victor & Tammy who arrived to the dock third, had trouble fixing the propeller, making them the last team to finish the task. However, both Mark & Michael and Jen & Kisha left their baggages on the dock and their taxis. And this cost them a lot of time.
The next task was a detour: Broken Teeth or Broken Record. Only Margie & Luke chose to do the Broken Teeth where they had to find 5 elderlies their matching teeth. While Luke had trouble doing the task, Margie sailed through the task and they completed the task fast. The rest of the teams chose to do the Broken Record where they had to sing Karaoke inside a taxi with 3 local girls. After finishing the road block, the teams headed to the pitstop.
Margie & Luke won this leg, Jamie & Cara second. Kisha & Jen, despite leaving their travel documents, decided to go to pitstop and raced with Tammy & Victor. Kisha & Jen arrived third, but Phil said that they had to fetch their documents before he could check them in, so Tammy & Victor became the 3rd team to check in. Mark & Michael, who also left their baggages at the dock, despite arguing, they decided to get their documents first before doing their detour. So the race for the 4th spot was between the siblings and the stuntmen. Both of them found their taxi drivers still waiting for them, so they got their belongings back.
Mark & Michael arrived at the pitstop before Jen & Kisha arrived, but due to some violation of race rules (they paid their cab with items), they got 4 hour penalty. So Jen & Kisha were safe, but so were Mark & Michael. This week wasn’t an elimination leg, but Phil gave them a major bad news, not only they would have a Speed Bump next week, but they would also be penalized on their starting time. So we’ll see if they can overcome those obstacles and stay in the competition next week. From the preview, looks like next week Luke and Jen are going to have a fight
