Kami & Karli in Last Place

For the first time in almost three years I missed an episode of the Amazing Race. But, I am going to try and piece together a short review from third-party accounts of those that saw the episode and the Amazing Race 5 website’s summary for this eighth leg of the race.

In this leg of the race, teams made their way from Tanzania to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. This leg of the race was the second of four non-elimination legs. And just like Linda & Karen before them, the twins had to surrender all of their money and will start the next leg penniless. Linda & Karen came back from this, but I reckon that Kami & Karli will not. They are, after all, a little dumb. Remember the diving into the water to get to the island, yeah!

The big story in this leg was Colin’s outburst and refusal to pay a $100 cab fare to Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania, he offered the driver $50 instead. The cab was driving on a spare and got another flat tire on the way to the airport and Colin thought he was justified in not paying the full fare. He was taken to the police station where he proceeded to throw a world-class, I am a spoiled-rotten-American-white-guy-style tantrum. He ended his tantrum by slamming $100 on the counter and screaming, “I’m late for a plane!” What an ass!

Adding insult to injury, he proceeded to make Christie feel bad about her concerns that he was 1) wasting valuable time and 2) acting like a big obnoxious asshole. She later, get this, apologized! Huh!? Yeah, these two are fucking made for each other. I am sorry I missed this brouhaha. And with all the drama they finished the leg in first place. No justice. That’s all I am going to say about this episode. For more, read the CBS summary.

Funniest Moment: Unknown
Stupidest Moment: Three-Way Tie: 1) Colin acting like an “Ugly American.” 2) Christie apologizing to him for “her” behavior in the incident. 3) Kami & Karli. I didn’t see it, but I bet they did some dumb shit. Yep! The recap says they helped Colin & Christie with their flat tire–told you!
Smartest Play: Unknown
Balls Dick of the Week: Colin!

Teams I Hate: Kami & Karli, Brandon & Nicole, Colin & Christie
Teams I Like: Linda & Karen, Chip & Kim
Current Pick: Chip & Kim

I normally don’t pick the losers, but I just don’t see Kami & Karli coming back from last place. In my opinion, they are the dumbest team and admittedly “spazzy.” It’s going to take a lot to come back from last place. Who will be eliminated next!?


  1. There’s usually a rerun of the week’s episode on Friday or something. You should look it up. You have to see this episode. And if you can’t find when it’ll be broadcast, I think we have it on tape. Let me know!

    I was hoping that Colin will get his ass thrown in jail. Christie is such an idiot. I wouldn’t be surprised if she showed up at a battered womens’ shelter a few years from now when Colin beats her up and throws her and her babies out. ….but wait….Christie wouldn’t leave Colin! She’d stick around and apologize for making him beat her!

    There were some great lines this episode, including this one:

    Colin: (to police officer, in a demanding, typical ugly-American fashion) Do you speak English?

    Officer: Do you speak Swahili?

    Nugget…you need to see this episode!!

  2. Yeah, Christie’s apology was more shocking than Colin’s behavior, I was shocked when I read it. Sadly though, without seeing it I am missing the great dialogue, like, “Do you speak Swahili?” Hahaha. I checked and no rebroadcast is scheduled. I would be in your debt if you still had the tape and could mail it to me ;) Better yet, if you have it I think I can pick it up this Saturday afternoon.
