Jim & Marsha

In this leg of the race, teams made their way from Buenos Aires to San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentina, a 1000 mile journey. Charla & Mirna left early and thought that they had an alliance with Brandon & Nicole. Almost immediately, Brandon & Nicole get their car stuck in some mud. Charla & Mirna, as good allies, wait for Brandon & Nicole to get loose of the mud before continuing on to the airport.

Sadly though, Charla & Mirna make a wrong turn further down the road and Brandon & Nicole ditch them and continue to the airport. That’s just wrong! And this is the team that wears Christianity like a badge, straight-up Republican-style. Later, when Charla & Mirna finally arrive at the airport, they totally lie and say that “they waited for them.” The teams re-establish their alliance to buy tickets. Their alliance is supposedly so strong, that they defend it against questions from Marshall & Lance, which really pisses Marshall off. Marshall was so pissed that he vows revenge against Mirna. Big drama.

Incredibly, almost immediately as the ticket counters open, Brandon & Nicole ask the team in front of them to buy their tickets, dissolving their alliance with Charla & Mirna once again. Yeah, you heard right! Brandon & Nicole manage to screw the dwarf team not once, but twice, in only a matter of hours. That’s not very Christian-like. Man, I am going to be pissed if they win this thing.

Brandon & Nicole thought they were slick for ditching their alliance with Charla & Mirna once again, but they end up getting on the 9:40AM (second) flight, while Charla & Mirna get on the earlier 9:10AM (first) flight. It serves them right, the bastards! Sadly, Jim & Marsha fail to get on the third flight at 10:30AM sealing their fate on this leg of the race.

Once the teams arrived at their destination, they were supposed to go to a chocolate factory for a Roadblock. In this Roadblock, one team member had to bite into 11,000 chocolate pieces looking for 1 of 20 chocolate pieces with a white chocolate center. On the way to the Roadblock, Marshall yelled “bitch” to Mirna from his car. He was obviously still hot from their encounter in the airport. This was not very mature, but it was funny as hell.

All teams completed the Roadblock fairly quickly, except for Marshall & Lance. Marshall could not find the piece of white chocolate for the life of him. He spent nearly one hour looking for a piece while three teams passed him and his brother on their way to the Detour at Villa Catedral.

For the Detour at Villa Catedral teams had to choose between “Smooth Sailing” and “Rough Riding.” Smooth Sailing was a paraglide ride down a 5,000 foot mountain and Rough Riding was a 6-mile mountain bike ride down the same mountain. All teams chose the paragliding. By the way, this was one of the coolest things that I have seen on the race–paragliding down that hill looked awesome! All teams made it down without incident, except for Linda which was terrified and came very close to backing out of the challenge. After the Detour, teams made their way by car to the Pit Stop at Bahia Lopez.

The eliminated team was chosen at the beginning of the episode when Jim & Marsha missed their plane. Although they made up a bunch of time on Marshall & Lance at the Roadblock, they couldn’t make it out of last place. One interesting thing at the Pit Stop. All teams walked across shallow water to an island in the bay to reach the Pit Stop, except for Kami & Karli. They failed to see the shallow water and decided to swim across to the island! I am sorry, but those hoes are just dumb!

Which brings us to this week’s summary:

Funniest Moment: Marshall yelling “bitch” to Mirna from their car.
Stupidest Moment: Kami & Karli swimming to the island.
Balls of the Week: Linda overcoming fear and paragliding.

Teams I Hate: Kami & Karli, Brandon & Nicole, Marshall & Lance
Teams I Like: Charla & Mirna, Colin & Christie, Bob & Joyce
Current Pick: Colin & Christie

Yeah, I have a new pick to win the race. I was impressed by Colin & Christie in this leg and completely dissapointed by Chip & Kim. I also warmed up to Charla & Mirna because they are very resourceful. Charla is riding the dwarf sympathy all the way to the bank and I believe that they have a chance to make it to the final leg. Stay tuned.


  1. I think that Brandon and Nicole were brilliant! They really know how to play the game. Same to Charla and Mirna.

  3. Charla is by far the best person on this show. She is fearless, funny, and smart. Mirna isn’t nearly as great. Charla is my idol!! I hope to meet her some time in my life. I think that everyone could learn a thing or two from her. She is always puting her all into the challenges of the race. I hope that she and Mirna win the amazing race. Charla deserves it.

  4. Charla is so awesome, she is my idol. Mirna is really mean and bossy to Charla she makes her do all the challenges and Charla just willingly and fearlessly does them she is so awesome. she is not afraid of any thing. she is so cool. i hope that charla reads this and wants to meet me, cuz i want to meet her. i think she would be flattered. she is really. i hope she wins. i don’t want mirna to win. Go Shmirna! even though they r together. if the end is a running race i don’t think Shmirna could do it. she should have teamed up with a nice strong man, that could carry her. she should teamed up with her husband. she has on eu know. well bye Go CHARLA!!!!!!!!!!
