Recap: The Amazing Race 9, Episode 9 – “If there were chicks, we’d be hooking up with them.”











EP 09-09: DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH RUNNING I DID TODAY, PHIL?

Well, they definitely didn’t spend a lot of time in Oman did they? The King-caused traffic jam in Muscat is so reminiscent of TAR6 when the teams get caught up in a motorcade for (as Jonathan put it) the President of “Synagogue” …

Australia was beautiful, and what a way to see it… on a two-person bicycle. We finally get some kind of diving tasks as seen in every season of TAR. The DETOUR was simple enough, but nothing new or special. The Duracell®-sponsored ROAD BLOCK could’ve been more exciting. Maybe if they said the prison was haunted or something, had some ghostly apparitions or have them walk around the prison without any lights or stuff like that. Still, the underground tunnels were not as dangerous as the African tunnels that cut Meredith’s head open in TAR7.

Eric & Jeremy luckily manage to get 1st place again as they outrun Monica & Joseph. Once again, and not unexpectedly, MoJo’s breakdown/argument wasn’t a big deal at all. Monica proved at the Detour that she is nowhere near being Flo-like. Flo probably wouldn’t have dived at all, plus she would’ve freaked out after getting only one of those crayfish or whatever they were. 🙂 Anyway, first close finish this season…

Hmm… Ray & Yolanda aren’t what they seem to be, according to the videos at CBS.com. They’re harmless, but is there more that what we’re seeing on TV? They may be this season’s David & Jeff. BJ & Tyler… what to say? I don’t like them, I don’t hate them. They annoy me though. And I wouldn’t want them to win.

In a way, I was expecting it to be a non-elimination since Fran & Barry were last… early hype had them being Meredith & Gretchen 2.0. Oh well… they weren’t the “nice, old couple” that’s for sure. They kind of picked up the pace in the middle of the Race, but just couldn’t hold on long enough. They definitely recovered from their disastrous first few legs though. I guess the taxi

Not as exciting an episode as last week, but good enough. Any TAR episode is good enough really…
