In this leg of the race, teams raced from Seoul, Korea to Brisbane, Australia. David and Jeff used the Fast Forward to end up in first place, Reichen and Chip survived a big scare, and unfortunately the big favorites to win, Jon and Al, the circus clowns, were eliminated from the race.

Jon and Al were at a big disadvantage early on in this leg. They decided to book plane tickets on a Korean Air flight that was heavily delayed, while the rest of the teams decided to book flights on a Singapore Airlines flight. Things were not looking good for the clowns.

Reichen and Chip lost control during this leg of the race. Chip was snapping at everyone, especially the Korean cab driver. Chip’s attitude didn’t win him any points. Adding insult to injury, Reichen and Chip did not READ their final clue which directed them to go “by foot” to the Pitstop. This isn’t the first time that Reichen and Chip have failed to read the clue properly. In Episode 8, they didn’t read the clue which stated that the Pitstop was “at the end of the beach.” You would think that reading would be a requirement for the race.


Although Reichen and Chip arrived at the Pitstop second, behind David and Jeff, they were assessed a 5 minute penalty for the time gained by driving, and an additional 30 minutes for the “mistake.”Kelly and Jon arrived at the Pitstop right behind Reichen and Chip, having purposely walked there as the clue stated. They were awarded a second place finish. Unfortunately, the clowns didn’t make it to the Pitstop within the penalty, giving Reichen and Chip the third place finish. Reichen and Chip dodged a bullet and the clowns were eliminated from the race.

Kelly and Jon are bitches to everybody, including each other, and don’t deserve to win the whole thing. Reichen and Chip are getting snappy at innocent bystanders and can’t fucking read the clues, so they don’t deserve to win either. I find it interesting that Chip snapped, “Speak English!” to the taxi driver–well maybe he should learn to “read” English instead. Leaving us with the most uninteresting team, David and Jeff. They are boring as hell to watch, but in my opinion, deserve it more than the other two teams. I am rooting for David and Jeff going into the final stretch. Be sure to watch the finale next week!
