Bob & Joyce

Well, I am a week late in doing my recap of the show, but better late than never. Thanks to the power of TiVo I could watch last week’s episode to refresh my memory, since I don’t delete the shows until the write-up is done. I’ll post a recap of tonight’s show tomorrow. In the fourth episode, teams made their way from San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina to St. Petersburg, Russia. In order to get there, teams had to take a 1,000-mile bus ride to Buenos Aires to take an 8,000 plane ride to St. Petersburg! Needless to say, this was an extremely long leg!

I am not going to take the time to explain the plane ticket mania that ocurred in this episode. Teams took three different routes to St. Petersburg, connecting through Madrid, Frankfurt, or London. It was all very complicated. At the end the teams arrived in St. Petersburg pretty bunched up, except for Bob & Joyce who were clearly in last place. This sealed their fate for this leg of the race.

Once teams arrived in St. Petersburg, they made their way to the Battleship Aurora for their next clue, a Detour. This detour was “Drink 1 Shot” or “Block 5 Shots.” Teams had to drink one shot of vodka while balancing the shot glass on a sword, or block five slap shots from professional hockey players as a goalie in a hockey rink. This was interesting. Most teams chose the drink, except of course the holier than thou Brandon & Nicole. Brandon claimed he couldn’t drink because of his faith and Nicole chastised him because she felt he was wasting time. Did I mention he was a big pussy? Amazingly, Charla & Mirna also chose to block five shots and made for a very funny scene at the hockey rink.


None of the teams knew what was in store for them after the Detour. Teams made their way to a Roadblock in which one team member had to eat a whole kilogram of caviar. Yeah, two pounds of caviar in one sitting! Everyone had trouble with this except Chip. Even though Chip & Kim started the race in last place, Chip made up huge time in this Roadblock–they finished in first place! The twins brought up the rear, finishing in seventh place. Bob & Joyce came in last and were eliminated.

Funniest Moment: The midget goalie blocking slap shots in hockey challenge.
Stupidest Moment: Brandon choosing not to take one drink–he has to be the biggest pussy ever!
Balls of the Week: Chip powering through the caviar.

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

Who will be eliminated next!?

  1. Oh yeah, you totally need to have a little junk in the trunk to bust a move on some of the challenges. The bowling moms kicked ass in the caviar challenge. I just hope they don’t get eliminated in the next leg of the race, since they’ll have no cash!

  2. I wanted to let you all know about a new petition website we just started. We’re trying to build it up as much as possible to let the press know how many working people like us are against George W. Bush. I hope you stop by http://www.peopleagainstw.org and give us some feedback. thanks!

  3. I was loving how the skinny chicks couldn’t eat the caviar. HAHAHA. That’s probably the most food they ever ate in a day….without puking it all up! Bowling moms had no problem with the caviar. You need a little junk in the trunk to play the Amazing Race!
