  • Amazing Race Recap - Episode 7 - A Sixpack of Stupid

       October 29, 2006

    Tonight in Mauritius not only were Dave & Mary saved in a non-elimination leg, the rest of their "sixpack" alliance were saved from their own stupidity. The whole concept of an alliance in the Amazing Race is just so silly. It's a race. You don't vote people off, you beat them. It's one thing to work with other teams to gather information, it's another thing to wait for teams to finish a task and let other teams get ahead of you. That's what the Cho Bros did tonight. For that reason, I'm now rooting for the Beauty Queens to win. They're independent women who just happen to be kicking ass. Way to go!

    Other highlights & lowlights:

    • Mauritius was absolutely beautiful
    • Dave & Mary seem like nice people (well, at least Dave does), but they made some huge mistakes tonight. 5 of the 6 remaining teams initially took the needle-in-a-haystack salt detour. Then, they all aborted it. Dave & Mary were the last team still searching the salt stacks (looking for their last shaker of salt-no really, they were). Why in the world did they abort? By aborting they knew they were in last place. If they stayed they had a chance to get lucky and move up. That was a bad move and they were damn lucky to be saved by a non-elimination again
    • I know a lot of people don't like them, but I'm endlessly amused by Rob & Kimberly's bickering. I get the feeling that they're together somewhere watching these episodes and laughing at themselves
    • No Peter!

    Next week - an "intersection". I can't wait to find out what that is! In the meantime, be sure to check out Viking Pundit's recap.

    i disagree. the chos can easily outrun KY & AL. if they know that they are in 3rd or 4th place, it is in their best interest to wait for the other teams. here's why: if they keep the 6 pack together, it always comes down to a run for the flag at the end, and they are assured of never being in last place. on the other hand, if they instead choose to not wait, they run the risk of getting lost, alone, and then finishing last.

    i agree that it doesnt make sense to give up a big lead to wait. but if everyone is very close, it may be the best move.
