Recap: The Amazing Race 8, Episodes 7 and 8 – “You look ridiculous!” / “I don’t roll with the punches… I punch.”







EPS 08-07/08-08: YOU LOOK RIDICULOUS/I DON’T ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES… I PUNCH

Who the hell was that kid? lol… he looked so lost and then confused by the Weavers’ intentions to be Christian…

Anywayz…. the LINZes… like TAR6’s Jonathan said: “I don’t understand why we fundametally can not be first place.” The Linzes have encountered some slightly bad, but not RACE threatening luck… in these two legs, they had the luck to get the later plane and then after the DETOUR, their slow boat allowed the GODLEWSKIs to get in front of them and eventually get first place. At least they’re still in the RACE, and they’ve been finishing in either 2nd or 3rd since their disastrous first leg. They’re fast becoming one of my favorite teams ever… almost up to the league of Kris & Jon and John Vito & Jill and David & Margaretta… They are so freakin’ hilarious…

And the team whose my opinion of did a complete 360, kinda like their ROAD BLOCK… the PAOLOs… once you get used to their hostile, loving nature, you grow to love them too… lol… I can’t really remember a team from the past to compare them to… maybe kinda like TAR3’s Flo… she whines, complains, is annoying, but you still like her… lol… Too bad they were PHILiminated… One of the funniest moments in TAR history has to be them putting on their clothes before the pit stop in the 7th leg only to see the BRANSENs running up behind them… lol… Phil said it best: “…you look ridiculous” …

And about the non-elim… with this FAMILY EDITION, it is kinda easy to tell when the non-elimination legs will happen… I think the producers will probably change something for TAR9 in response to that…

The WEAVERs are just a paradox… they talk about being Christians and then go and contradict themselves when they make fun of, insult, or just do “mean” things to other teams… throwing garbage? making fun of the PAOLOs becuase of their father’s occupation? They talk about others being mean and then minutes later, they do exactly what they’ve been condemning…

I feel sorry for Wally Bransen… his daughers are a handful and they don’t even listen!

Two AMAZING ROAD BLOCKS tonight… I would love to do both of those; the fighter planes and that race track looked freakin’ awesome… the DETOURs were pretty good too… not too easy, but not that difficult if done correctly either…

I’m sure a lot of people are excited *sarcasm* about them returning to American soil… but I would want to go the Grand Canyon… it looks beautiful there…

Two fun hours of THE AMAZING RACE though… I am definitely enjoying the RACE, and I wish the TAR fans that dumped the show initially have returned to see the RACE they all know and love 🙂

And damn, do I love the soundtrack to this show… it would be great if they released a soundtrack with all the scores they use…
