The Amazing Race 34.1 “Many Firsts But Don’t Be Last”

ar

Yay!  The Amazing Race is back!

The Amazing Race is my favorite of the big three reality competition shows, largely because it’s always kept things simple.  It’s a race around the world.  If you make it to the pit stop in time, you’ll keep racing.  If you’re the last team to arrive, you may be eliminated.

Actually, forget about “may be eliminated.”  This season started with Phil Keoghan announcing that, for the first time in Race history, there would be no non-elimination legs.  So, if you’re the last team to arrive, you’re out.  That should make things interesting.  Over the past few seasons, some of my favorite teams have only remained in the race because of non-elimination legs.  Indeed, some of the best teams in the history of the race — Colin and Christie, Rob and Amber, and others — would have been eliminated early if not for the non-elimination legs.

With every leg an elimination leg, that means that teams will always have to be on top of things.  Not a second can be wasted.  Unfortunately, that lesson was lost on Aastha and Nina, the first team to be eliminated.  They seemed like nice people but I knew they were doomed as soon as they wasted several precious minutes getting directions.

The latest season of the Race started in Munich.  The 12 teams all had to complete three activities associated with Oktoberfest so that they could receive the clues to the next pit stop.  Because Aastha and Nina started out behind, there was never really any suspense over who would be eliminated but still, it was nice to have the show back.

Here’s a few thoughts on the teams:

Coming in first were Derek X and Claire, who were both on Big Brother 23.  I’m always a little bit cynical about Big Brother teams, despite the fact that those teams actually do have a fairly good track record.  (Cody and Jessica won.  Brendan and Rachel came in third twice.)  Last night, Derek and Claire seemed pretty strong.  They worked well together and there really wasn’t any question that they were going to grab the top spot.

Coming in second were newlywed Glenda and Lumumba.  Glenda is very tall and Lumumba is pretty short and that’s really all I remember about them.  Still, coming in second is a good finish so I’m sure I’ll be learning more about them over the next few episodes.

Coming in third, Quinton and Mattie.  Quinton and Mattie are this season’s former cheerleaders.

Coming in fourth, Linton and Sharik.  Every season, we get one father/daughter team and this season, it’s Linton and Sharik.  Father/daughter teams always seem to meltdown around the third or fourth leg.  We’ll see if that happens this season.

Coming in fifth, Emily and Molly.  They’re twins and …. that’s about it.

Coming in sixth, Marcus and Michael.  They’re brothers and they’re both in the military.  They didn’t make a huge impression but they do seem likable enough. 

Coming in seventh, Tim and Rex.  They’re friends who like to golf.  Rex is a former football coach.  They seem like a typical middle-of-the-pack team.

Coming in eighth, Abby and Will.  Who?  I don’t remember much about them, to be honest.  That’s the way the Amazing Race goes sometimes.  If they stick around, I’ll get to know them better.

Coming in ninth, Rich and Dom!  They’re motivational speakers.  Dom’s rainbow hair is impressive.  They seem like they could be entertaining but I get the feeling they’ll be eliminated sooner than later.

Coming in tenth, Luis and Michelle!  Michelle, like me, is a dancer so I totally want to see her do well.  Unfortunately, they struggled a bit last night.  I’m not sure why.  They seem like they should be a strong team so I’m going to guess last night’s ten place finish was a fluke.

Coming in eleventh, Aubrey and David!  Yay!  More dancers!  That said, I’m going to need all of my dancers to finish a bit more strongly as the race continues.

And finally, coming in twelfth, Aastha and Nina.  They fell behind early and never really caught up.

As of now, I am rooting for the dancers, Luis & Michelle and Aubrey & David.  I wasn’t really a huge Claire or Derek fan when they were on Big Brother but they seem like they’re going to do well on the Race.

We’ll see what happens next week!

The Amazing Race 33.10: The Finale

The 33rd season of The Amazing Race concluded last night. After Arun and Natalia were eliminated from the race in Portugal, the final three teams went to Los Angeles. Despite the best efforts of the show’s editors to generate some suspense, I think things pretty much ended the way that most people expected them to.

Ryan and Dusty, who initially seemed like the favorites to win this season, had to settle for a distant third place finish. Ryan and Dusty worked well together as a team and they had a physical advantage but they weren’t detail-orientated and that worked against them during the latter legs of the race.

Raquel and Cayla led for much of the final leg but, after getting hung up at the final detour, they had to settle for finishing in second place. They were actually pretty upset about not winning and I was upset too. I was hoping they would win, if just because they reminded me of my sisters. Still, they ran a good race and they have nothing be ashamed about.

Kim and Penn won the race, which isn’t a huge shock. They pretty much dominated the entire season. One can acknowledge that they did a good job on the race while also admitting that they were kind of a blah team. I call them team Robot because they were efficient but they just weren’t that interesting. They earned their victory but it was still difficult to feel any enthusiasm about them.

Still, congrats to Kim and Penn. In the end, all that really matters is that they worked well together, they paid attention to their clues, and they ultimately won the race.

This was a weird season. It’s not the show’s fault. In fact, I would say that the Amazing Race handled things about as well as anyone could have expected. Still, with two of the strongest teams having to drop out due to COVID, it did make it a bit more obvious who was favored to win. If Anthony & Spencer and Connie & Sam had styed in the Race, I doubt Kim & Penn would have dominated things as easily as they did. Still, the show did what it had to do and I prefer a strange season to no season at all. And even though I was skeptical about giving the eliminated teams a second chance, I did really come to like Arun and Natalia.

As for the teams that did return, I hope that Ryan & Dusty and Raquel & Cayla will get the call the next time the show does an All-Star season.

Thank you for watching The Amazing Race with me. Survivor starts next week!

The Amazing Race 33.9 “Rock Bottom”

TAR29_Logo

Last night’s episode of The Amazing Race was the best of the season so far.  Considering that the finale is next week, I think it’s possible that this is the episode that season 33 will be remembered for.  It was also one of the most nerve-wracking episodes that I’ve ever seen.  It allowed us to get to know the remaining four teams as individuals.  We got to see everyone at their best and their worst.

Raquel and Cayla finally got their first place finish but, even more than that, they also showed the attitude that’s kept them in the race.  They’re supportive of each other.  They stay positive.  They don’t give up.  They don’t give into frustration and anger.  Raquel and Cayla have been kind of a low-key team but they’re now favorite team on the race and I hope they do well in the finale.

Kim and Penn struggled a little but, in struggling, they actually became more human.  In the past, Kim and Penn at times seemed nearly robotic.  But last night, we learned that Kim struggles with anxiety and we saw that Penn is as supportive when the team is struggling as when they’re winning.  They came in second and I think it was overall a good thing that they got humbled a little before starting the final leg of the race.

Arun and Natalia came in third, largely due to Ryan and Dusty’s struggles.  Arun and Natalia have got to learn how to read directions.  I like them personally but I still nearly have a panic attack whenever they start driving.

And finally, we’ve got Ryan and Dusty.  Throughout the race, many have complained that Ryan and Dusty have a tendency to get a bit cocky.  Last night, Ryan spent over three hours searching for a gold coin that was hidden under a rock.  He struggled with his anger issues but ultimately, he found the rock and he and Dusty made it to the pit stop.  They arrived long after everyone else and Phil revealed that this was a …. NON-ELIMINATION LEG!  Yay!

(To be honest, I wasn’t surprised that it was a non-elim leg.  Both the roadblock and the detour were so difficult that I couldn’t imagine the show actually eliminating anyone who struggled with them.)

And again, I think it was good that Ryan and Dusty struggled a bit.  It got their heads back in the game.  It humbled them a little.  You don’t want to go into the final leg feeling too cocky.  You don’t want to take anything for granted.

Last night’s episode was exciting and it had a good ending.  Next week, one of these four teams will win The Amazing Race!

The Amazing Race 33.7 “Gently Down The Stream”

TAR29_Logo

The 7th leg of the Amazing Race found the remaining five teams still in France.  Four of the teams decided to work together.  Ryan and Dusty decided to go on their own.  It was an arrangement that worked out well for Penn & Kim and Raquel & Cayla.  Despite some initial struggles at the Detour, it also proved to be a good strategy for Ryan & Dusty.  It was not quite as good an idea for Lula & Lala and Arun & Natalia.  Fortunately, this turned out to be yet another non-elimination leg so, despite once again coming in last, Arun & Natalia will continue the race.  As Phil pointed out, no team has gotten more second chances than Arun & Natalia.  Ordinarily, that would be heart-warming but you have to wonder if Arun & Natalia are ever going to take advantage of or learn from those second chances.  How many times can you keep making the same mistakes?

This has been a weird season and it’s not really the show’s fault.  The COVID lockdowns not only caused the show to shut down production for over a year but it also led to some of the strongest teams not returning to the race.  If Anthony & Spencer or Connie & Sam had returned, the Race would probably look far different.  But they didn’t and, as a result, the weaker teams have lasted far longer than they would under normal circumstances.

As a result, the strongest team to return — Kim & Penn — has so dominated the last few legs that it’s been a bit boring to watch.  They never mess up.  They never find themselves running behind.  They’re perfect and, to be honest, it’s kind of annoying.  Last night, when Kim just casually announced, “Penn speaks French,” I nearly threw something at the TV.  Of course, he does.  There’s nothing Penn can’t do.  It wouldn’t be as annoying if Kim and Penn had any sort of quirkiness to their personalities but they’re actually pretty dull.  They’re like robots, specifically built to win The Amazing Race.

I actually prefer Raquel & Cayla, who don’t always run a perfect leg but who never give up, always retain a good attitude, and have done well in the race without getting as cocky as either Ryan or Dusty.  Yesterday, they were smart to team up with Kim and Penn and work with them at the Detour.  But sadly, they had to settle for another 2nd place finish.

As for Ryan and Dusty, cockiness aside, I like them.  I liked that they were smart enough to realize that teaming up with Lala & Lula and Arun & Natalia would just slow them down.  Again, it all comes down to attitude.  They don’t give up, even if they make a mistake.  They also allow themselves to have actual emotions, which makes them more compelling to watch than either Kim or Penn.

As for Lula & Lala and Arun & Natalia — they seem nice but, in an ordinary season of The Amazing Race, they all would have been eliminated a long time.  As we saw when they tried to work together at the Detour, none of them are good at paying attention to the small details and I expect they’ll all be gone by the time we reach the final leg.

So, with all that in mind, here’s how everyone finished this leg:

1st — Kim & Penn, again

2nd — Raquel and Cayla, again

3rd — Ryan and Dusty, again

4th — Lula and Lala, who moved up one from their 5th place finish during the previous leg

5th — Arun and Natalia, saved from elimination again.

Next week, the Race heads to Greece!

The Amazing Race 33.5 “Stairway to Heaven”

TAR29_Logo

Last night’s episode of The Amazing Race had some good things going for it.  As I said last week, Switzerland is a beautiful country and I really enjoyed looking at the scenery.  And I was so happy for Sherri when she managed to do the bungee jumping roadblock despite her crippling fear of heigths!

Plus, the roaming gnome returned!  The roaming gnome has been an Amazing Race mainstay for quite some time and I’m always happy to see him.  Remember how, in the past, teams would sometimes forget their gnome and they’d have to go back to get him?  That was always fun.  Of course, it hasn’t happened in a while.  People now know better than to lose that gnome.

With all that in mind, this was still a pretty anti-climatic episode.  On a personal level, I do like Arum and Natalia.  I felt bad for them the first time they got eliminated.  When they were allowed to return to the race, I sincerely hoped they would make the most the second chance.  But, unfortunately, they’re just not very good at this.  Every leg of the race, so far, they’ve ended up getting lost and lagging behind the other teams.  Last night, they got so lost that the other teams had already checked into the pit stop by the time that Arum and Natalia reached the detour.  As such, there was no suspense about who would come in last and, because of unique circumstances of this year’s Race, there was also no suspense that tonight would be a non-elimination leg.  We knew they would be last and we knew it wouldn’t matter.

In other words, Natalia and Arum will get another chance.  They’ll also be the last team to leave Switzerland at the start of the next leg.  Apparently, the teams will be heading to France.  If driving in Switzerland was difficult for Arum and Natalia, I can only imagine the trouble they’re going to have in France.

Here’s how everyone finished last night:

Coming in first, Ryan and Dusty.  Again.  These two have yet to finish anywhere lower than 2nd during the entire race.  The only thing that could stop them is a physical injury, which — to judge from the previews — might very well happen during the next leg of the race.

Coming in second, Lulu and Lala.  i was surprised. I haven’t been impressed by them in the past but they came on strong last night so maybe Lulu and Lala used that year-long downtime to reflect on why they struggled during the first three legs of the race.  Good for them.

Coming in third, Kim and Penn.  They’re still looking strong.

Coming in fourth, Raquel and Cayla.  The flight attendants struggled a little with directions during this leg, though not to the extent that Arum and Natalia did.

Coming in fifth, Sheri and Akbar.  Try as they might, Sheri and Akbar simply cannot escape from the back of the pack.

Coming in sixth, Arum an Natalia.  Luckily for them, it was a non-elimination leg but I just don’t see things ever getting better for this team.

Next week, the teams go to France!

The Amazing Race 33.4 “Ready to Restart the Race”

TAR29_Logo

“After the longest pit stop in Amazing Race history….”

Okay, we all know what led us up to this point so I won’t waste too much time recapping it.  At the end of the 2nd leg of the race, Phil gathered the teams and announced that, due to the Coronavirus lockdowns, the race was being suspended.  It was disappointing but, considering that a lot of countries weren’t even allowing people to enter, the production didn’t have much choice.

Over a year later, the race resumed.  The teams were flown to Switzerland to restart the race.  Unfortunately four teams could not return.  Anthony & Spencer, Connie & Sam, Caro & Ray, and Taylor & Isaiah all had to drop out.  Caro & Ray dropped out because they broke up after the race was suspended.  I’m not sue what happened to the rest.  Two of the open spots were filled by Moe & Michael and Arun & Natalia, who got a second chance after being eliminated during the previous legs of the race.

I’m sure Caro & Ray and Taylor & Isaiah were nice people and I do hope they’re all doing okay but losing them is no great loss to the race because neither was a strong team.  Neither was going to end up winning,  Anthony & Spencer and Connie & Sam, however, were strong teams and I’m worried that, without them, the race is going to be a bit lopsided.  Kim & Pen and Ryan & Dusty are the only two consistently strong teams left and I have a feeling they’re going to dominate the rest of this season while the other teams essentially compete for third place.  I hope I’m proven wrong because the Race is always more fun to watch when there are several strong teams instead of just two.

As for tonight’s leg of the race, Switzerland is a beautiful country and I enjoyed the scenery.  At one point, it looked like Michael & Moe were going to make up for their previously elimination by finishing strong but they soon fell behind.  For that matter, so did Arun and Natalia.  Neither made the best use of their second chance.

Here’s how our teams finished:

In first place, Ryan and Dusty!  They’re the strongest team right now.  Some have complain that Ryan and Dusty are cocky but when you’re winning as easily as they are, it’s understandable.

In second place, Kim and Penn.  They’re a strong team, even if they’re not exactly likable, and I expect they’ll make it to the finale.

In third place, Raquel and Cayla.  I like the flight attendants because they remind me of my sisters.  They’ve actually been doing pretty well in the race so it wouldn’t surprise me if tonight’s finish was a preview of what we’re going to see on finale night.

In fourth place, Lulu & Lala.  Usually, finishing in fourth place would be a good finish but, again, I think last night’s finish was more due to the weakness of the competition than anything else.  Lula & Lala struggled during the previous few legs of the race and I have a feeling that’s going to be the case over the next few legs as well.

In fifth place, Sheri and Akbar.  Honestly, these two are pretty much doomed.  They haven’t had a good leg yet.

In sixth place, Arun and Natalia.  Arun needs to stop getting so frustrated all the time.

In last place and eliminated from the race (again), Moe and Michael.  They seem like nice guys but the race isn’t for everyone.  They were the first to eliminated before the restart and they’re the first to be eliminated after the restart.

With Moe and Michael out of the race, they leaves us with only 6 teams and also a lot of legs left to go in the race.  I assume we’re going to get a few extra non-elimination legs this season.  Otherwise, this is going to be a short season.

The Amazing Race 33.1 & 2 “We’re Back” and “It Can’t Be That Easy”

Cast-The-Amazing-Race-Season-33

The Amazing Race is back!

I’m happy about that.  To be honest, it originally seemed like we might never see the 33rd installment of The Amazing Race.  Filming on the 33rd season started in 2020, before the COVID lockdowns.  Once the lockdowns went into effect, filming was suspended.  (According to Phil, this happened right after the completion of the third leg of the race.)  The racers were sent home.  It wasn’t until September of 2021 that the teams returned and completed the race, albeit with a modified route and chartered flights.  In other words, after the third leg, I presume we won’t see any more desperate races to the airport.

So, the 33rd season has finally been completed.  Last night, CBS premiered the first two episodes and we followed 11 teams of two as the flew from the U.S.A. to London.  At the end of the first hour, one team was eliminated.  At the end of the second hour, Phil announced that the second leg of the race was a “continue racing” leg (which I guess has replaced the “non-elimination” leg)  and that the last team to arrive at the pit stop had not been eliminated.  Yay!

Now, with The Amazing Race, it takes about half-a-season to really get to know the teams.  The first few episodes are always a bit hectic and it can be difficult to keep track of everyone.  With that in mind, here are my first impressions of the teams, in order of what place they were in at the end of the last night’s premiere:

Ryan and Dusty: Ryan and Dusty are this season’s best friends.  Ryan spent decades in prison for a murder he didn’t commit but he still seems to be surprisingly cheerful and optimistic.   They ended the first leg of the race in 2nd place.  At the end of the 2nd leg, they’re in first place.  They’re a strong team.

Connie and Sam: Connie and Sam are a married couple.  They seem likable enough.  They ended the first leg in 7th place but are currently in 2nd.  I think they’re going to be around for a while because they know how to work together and they seem to have a pretty good attitude, even when things get tough.  We’ll see.

Arun and Natalia: This father-and-daughter team is from Detroit and they definitely want you to know it.  I’m not sure how they’re “Detroit vs Everybody” shirts will play in certain countries.  They struggled during the 1st leg, coming in 9th.  However, they rallied during the 2nd episode an are currently in 3rd place.

Raquel and Cayla: The flight attendants!  They finished the first leg in third and are currently in fourth.  They seem like a typical middle-of-the-road team, the type who is destined to come in 5th or 4th.

Kim and Penn: Kim and Penn are a married couple of have a YouTube channel.  They’re kind of annoying.  They seem to be another typical middle-of-the-road team but Penn has a tendency to overthink things and I think that will be their downfall.  After coming in 4th during the first leg, they’re currently in 5th place.

Caro and Ray: Call them Team Doomed.  This dating couple met on Love Island.  They finished in 5th place during the first leg of the race and they’re currently in 6th.  Last night, they spent too much time fighting.  I think they’re the team most likely to have a massive meltdown.

Anthony and Spencer: Anthony and Spencer are childhood friends.  They’re also famous for preventing a terrorist attack on a train in France in 2015.  They even starred in the film that Clint Eastwood made about the incident, The 15:17 to Paris.  Anthony and Spencer finished the 1st leg in first and but they struggled during the second leg and are currently in 7th.  That said, I think they’re a strong team and I think they’ll be around for a while.

Akbar and Sheri: The married teachers, they struggled during both legs of the race.  They ended the first leg in 6th and are currently in 8th.  they seem like nice people but I don’t expect them to make it far in the race.

Taylor and Isiah: This married couple has their own YouTube Channel.  They struggled during both legs.  They finished the first leg in 8th place.  They’re currently in 9th.

Lula and Lala: The twins are not doing well at all.  They narrowly avoided elimination by coming in 10th at the end of the first leg.  At the end of the second leg, they’re still in last place and would have been eliminated if not for the 2nd leg being a “continue racing” leg.  They need to start paying more attention to detail if they’re going to make it to the end.

Mike and Moe: The singing cops seemed nice enough but they were eliminated at the end of the first leg.

And that’s it for now.  To be honest, it might be a mistake to read too much into the early legs.  We know that the race is going to be suspended after the third leg and that the racers will end up waiting over a year to return to the race.  So, the fourth leg of the race will essentially be the start of a totally new race.

We’ll see what happens.  For now, I’m just happy to have my favorite reality show back!

The Amazing Race 32.12 “Now It’s About Winning”

Hey, everyone.

Last night, the Amazing Race moved to New Orleans for the final leg and it was all pretty anti-climatic.  From the minute the plane landed, Will and James were in the lead.  (It turned out that both of them have spent time in New Orleans and basically knew the layout of the town.  The other teams didn’t.)  Hung and Chee spent the entire night in second place.  Riley and Maddison spent the entire night in third place.  And that’s exactly how the race ended.

Will and James came in first.

Hung and Chee came in second.

Riley and Maddison came in third.

It was a disappointing end to a disappointing season.  Hung and Chee were a strong team from the start and probably could have made it to the end on their own.  Will and James and Riley and Maddison, however, owed their success to their alliance,  If not for the fact that they spent the entire race helping each other out, they probably wouldn’t have made it to the final three.  For someone like me who loves the Race and who, in the past, has always appreciated it as being a positive antidote to all the scheming and pettiness of Big Brother and Survivor, it was difficult to get excited about either team making it to the end.

It’s not cheating, despite what some people on Twitter are saying.  Racers are allowed to form alliances and they’re allowed to help each other.  Personally, I hope that, when and if the Race returns, they’ll institute a new rule about teams helping each other during the roadblocks and the detours.  This season was ruined not so much by the teams forming an alliance as by the way the alliance proceeded to bully and scheme against the teams outside of the cool kids clique.  Obviously, it was a strategy that worked but it was unpleasant to watch.  I can’t say I was surprised to see how unenthusiastic all the previously eliminated teams looked when they saw Will and James running up to the mat.

Probably the best thing about last night’s episode is that Riley and Maddison came in third.  As I watched last night, I realized that I still didn’t know which one was Riley and which one was Maddison.  They were perhaps the most boring team to ever made it to the finale and, if they had won, this season would have been unbearable.  As it is, Will and James weren’t particularly likable but at least they had some sort of personality.  Riley and Maddison pretty much just had beards.

Well, that’s it for this season!  And that’s it going to be it for this blog for a while.  I’m not sure when we’ll get another season of Survivor and the Amazing Race, though I’ll cover them whenever we do get them.

I might cover a few other reality shows in the interim.  We’ll see!

The Amazing Race 32.11 “Run On Your Tippy Toes”

I never thought I would say this about my favorite reality show but, at this point, I really don’t care who wins the Amazing Race.

I mean, technically, I’m rooting for Hung and Chee because they’re the least annoying option.  But they’re still a part of the alliance that’s pretty much ruined this season.  This has been a very cliquey, very high schoolish season of The Amazing Race.  Six people got together early, decided they were going to work together, and then they basically just bullied the other teams out of the race.  It’s not cheating, despite what a lot of people on twitter are saying.  Teams are allowed to work together and it’s happened plenty of time in the past.  But it’s never happened to the extent that it’s happened during this season.

Perhaps it wouldn’t be so bad if the members of the alliance had interesting or vaguely likable personalities.  But Will and James are way too mean and, whenever things don’t go their way, whiny.  Hung and Chee are a strong team but they too often get tripped up over the little details.  Riley and Maddison are, without a doubt, two of the most boring human beings on the planet.  Who care about any of these people?

Personally, whenever the Race does return (and it could be a while, since this seasons at on the shelf for 2 years and shooting on season 33 was suspended due to the pandemic), I hope there’s a new rule about teams helping each other at the Detours and the Roadblocks, along with rules about how many times a team can be u-turned and yielded.  The alliance just made this season icky.

Last night, after a run through Manila, Gary and DeAngelo were eliminated from the race.  I was happy to see them go.  The fact that they survived for as long as they did was embarrassing.  After bragging about targeting Eswar and Aparna last week, DeAngelo whined like a little baby after getting eliminated last night.  He announced that he didn’t enjoy the race.  He was angry when the other teams suddenly treated him as poorly as they’ve treated every other team on the race.  Boo hoo, DeAngelo.  You nearly made it to the end, despite never reading your clues, never knowing what was going on, and almost always being at the back of the pack.

(For his part, Gary was less whiny about getting eliminated but who cares?  Gary was almost as much of a nonentity as Riley and Maddison.)

When the teams reached the Pit Stop in Manila, here’s where they stood:

Coming in first, Riley and Maddison.  They’ve been coming in first a lot.  Everyone calls them the Beards because that’s pretty much the only memorable thing about them.

Coming in second, Will and James.  Last night, I was briefly happy when it appeared that Will and James were struggling but they recovered.  I’m still hoping something happens next week to keep them from winning but, at the same time, I’d rather they win than Riley and Maddison.  They at least have some semblance of personality.

Coming in third, Hung and Chee.  From the very first episode, I predicted they’d made it to the end so I guess I should be happy that they did.  But I don’t know …. I’m kind of bored with them.  Every leg, Hung does something wrong and then Chee yells at him and then eventually, they manage to come in third.  I still hope they win.

Coming in fourth, Whiny and the Silent Giant.  Bye, guys!

Next week, we’ll have a winner!  See you then.
