Old Farts Eliminated

In this episode, teams made their way from Jabreen, Oman to Perth, Australia. Right from the start the Old Farts were gloating about how their travel experience will get them past the other teams on the race. Right! This is their first time in first place and they are talking smack. Whatever!

All the teams except for The Jocks and Ken & Barbie actually left money for The Hippies as a good will gesture. The Jocks left a $100 IOU payable to the Hippies after the race, which was smarter than not leaving anything at all. The Hippies vowed to go after Ken & Barbie for their insolence. We’ll see what happens. It’s a win-win if either one of those teams go.

The Hippies actually picked up a hitchhiker on the way to the airport, which was a really cool gesture. The amazing thing is that they still made the flight with apparently just minutes to spare. The other teams were really bummed to see them board the plane. It reminded me of the episode a couple of races ago when Boston Rob boarded the plane much to the dismay of all the other teams.

So all of the teams were again bunched up and tied for first place. Teams made their way from Perth to Freemantle to board a ferry to Rottnest Island. Ken & Barbie had a breakdown in which Ken snapped like a rubber band on Barbie and yelled “don’t bitch at me” even though he was going the wrong way. I foresee more breakdowns in this team’s future.

The Roadblock was a little tough for the Jocks, it took them over an hour to complete it, but they still finished in first place, closely followed by Ken & Barbie. The Hippies cam in third place and the Tokens came in fourth place. At the Pit Stop Phil asked Ray & Yolanda (the Tokens), “Did you find love again?” I think he was a little bummed that Yolanda said yes because he’s got a little crush on her.

I think the Hippies will be the next to go.

Episode Stats and Predictions

Roadblock: Who’s ready for a great escape? In this roadblock, one team member had to search cells for a flashlight and then find a door into the tunnel system under the prison to look for their next clue.

Detour: Sand or Sea. In Sand, teams had to drag a pile of 40 branches across a beach to get their next clue. In Sea, teams had to snorkel and search through 50 crayfish traps for a two live crayfish (one per team member) to get their next clue.

Fast Forward: None.

Yield: None.

Pit Stop: Freemantle Sailing Club, Freemantle, Australia.

Funniest Moment: The Old Farts exclaiming, “This place has ruined our sex life” when they entered a shared room in a hostel in Freemantle, Australia.

Smartest Play: Ken & Barbie having a taxi wait for them while they performed the Roadblock. They almost caught up to the Jocks, finishing only seconds behind them.

Dumbest Play: None.

Next Team to Be Eliminated: The Hippies.

Pick to Win: The Jocks.


  1. I really dislike those idiots (ken & barbie) and adam & steve (the gay couple known as the frat boys) love the hippies..hope that they win…

  2. I hate the Hippies with a passion. They are mugging for the camera and always trying to make jokes that aren’t funny and such. They suck.

    I don’t like Ken & Barbie, I wouldn’t be sad if they went away. I think that the frat boys (aka The Jocks, or Team Nipple Ring) mean well and they have a lot of first place finishes on this race. You gotta respect that.

    I think that the final three will be the Tokens (Ray & Yolanda), the Jocks, and Ken & Barbie.
