The Race Continued in Beijing
Posted May 3, 2009on:
This week’s episode is still the same leg of race as last week. Even though Jamie & Cara got to meet Phil first, but the race wasn’t over, so they headed off. Margie & Luke arrived 2nd, and Tammy & Victor 3rd, Kisha & Jen last. Their next task was to find a Travelocity gnome. Margie & Luke found the gnome fast, followed by Jamie & Cara, Tammy & Victor and Jen & Kisha. Then the teams must head to find their next clue box, and they got to ride electric scooters. It seems fun 🙂
Their next task was a detour: Chinese waiter or Beijing Opera. All teams but Tammy & Victor chose Beijing Opera because Chinese Waiter required a good understanding of Chinese. Jen & Kisha who passed Margie & Luke on scooter, finished dressing each other, while Luke was having trouble with make up. Jamie & Cara got lost on their way to Beijing Opera and were getting frustrated because they couldn’t find taxi to take them to the right location. Meanwhile, even though Tammy & Victor could speak chinese, they got the first menu wrong so they had to get the right orders. But they swam through the task fast, and they were off to their next task, a road block, where one of them (Victor) had to eat fried grasshopper, starfish, larvae, and other stuff.
The Beijing Opera team had trouble locating their next clue box, and they were struggling getting people to help them because of language barrier. Margie & Luke finally found a nice girl who took them, and Jen & Kisha finally found the clue box, but they were U-Turned by Tammy & Victor so they had to do Chinese waiter. Of course, Jen & Kisha had trouble with the order because Chinese language is very tedious. I even found it a miracle, and I suspect the chef was being lenient, that they completed the task. 😆 Meanwhile, Jamie & Cara were getting frustrated again because they couldn’t find anyone that could help them to point to the right direction.
So Tammy & Victor got to pitstop 1st, followed by Margie & Luke. So the race was between Jamie & Cara and Kisha & Jen. Jen was struggling eatting the “delicasy,” while Cara ate it really fast. Jen & Kisha finished the task first, but Jamie & Cara was a step behind them. So the race was determined by their taxi drivers. And because Jen drank so much water to help her swallow the food, she went to pee first before checking in to Phil, and that cost her team the spot on the final 3. Despite their feud with Margie & Luke, I like them better than Jamie & Cara, who are just plain rude. Oh well, so the final 3 teams are: Tammy & Victor, Margie & Luke, and Jamie & Cara. Don’t miss the final next week on CBS. You can also watch the previous episodes at CBS.com
