  • Amazing Race Recap - Episode 3 - Brought To You By John McCain for President

       October 01, 2006

    The verdict on season ten? So far, so good. This season has featured logical bunching points, likeable teams and topsy-turvy legs where teams went from first to last and back again. And, the Amazing producers are even giving us something new. In tonight's leg from Mongolia to Vietnam teams were given no money. While that ultimately wasn't why the father/daughter team of Duke & Lauren were Philiminated, it could have doomed them, and it's the kind of thing that should. If teams can't count on money each leg they're going to have to start weighing the pros and cons of fast transportation vs. cheap transportation. That adds a whole new authentic element to the Race. Nice job!

    Unfortunately, tonight was the third episode in a row that a team I liked was Philiminated. At first I thought Duke was a little creepy, but I think he's just a touchy feely guy who really does love his gay daughter. Left with no money midway through the leg, they recovered nicely and caught up to most of the other teams but then couldn't find the better detour and that was that.

    Highlights & lowlights from tonight's episode:

    • Team Ergo not only won the leg, they won it with class. Asked to find John McCain's flight suit (really!) in the Hanoi Hilton, the brothers, even though they were in last place at the time, took a moment of silence out of respect for our troops past and present
    • I really like David, but Mary is rivaling Peter for my least favorite Racer. Tonight, David tried to tell us about how much this trip to Vietnam means to him because his Dad fought there, but Mary interupted him to bitch at him for driving too slow. That's just rude. When someone you love is expressing himself from the heart like that, you shut up and listen. Mary is all sugar and spice to the other Teams, but she's a world class bitch to her husband. Maybe she doesn't realize it and hopefully she does now
    • This is the second time the Race has been to Vietnam and both times I've been struck by how stunningly beautiful the country is. I like to be able to associate something beautiful with the name "Vietnam" instead of just thinking of a divisive war
    • Finally, Peter continues to be an ass. Tonight he hassled Sarah about walking or running too slow. Shove it, jerk. You, of all people, know what's going on with her leg. Sarah, as a triathlete, strikes me as someone who is certainly going to give it her all without being nagged.

    Next week: Peter wants to quit! Sarah wants to shove that artificial leg up his you-know-what! Rob & Kimberly argue!

    Stay tuned for the Viking Pundit recap.

    im sorry that duke and his daughter were philiminated, that gay team is beyond obnoxious and deserved to go for their bitchiness alone. "whine whine cry cry waah waah you stepped in front of me i wont be your friend anymore!," STFU already. i can only hope that they eventually walk in front of a herd of charging elephant while gleefully bitching about how some emu somehow wronged them. i care so little about these teams, im only watching to see these little bitches get theirs.
