The Amazing Race 6 – The Lady of the Field






THE LADY OF THE FIELD
I was cracking up when I saw this… in the premiere episode of SEASON 6, in Iceland, Lori & Bolo stopped and asked some woman for directions… what was funny about it was it was this woman standing in a field, alone, no one for miles, with a shopping bag… lol… when it first aired, I was like “Where the frack did she come from?” lol


And a creation from the Survivor Sucks board:

too funny

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 12 – “Do this before I hyperventilate.”







EPISODE 6-12: DO THIS BEFORE I HYPERVENTILATE

Kris & Jon had very bad luck with the taxis… Everyone made it seem like they were going to bitch the drive out or Jon hits the driver… but all he did was throw the money onto his lap… and it was pretty understandable, even with the editing, you can tell they were on the road a long time… They also seemed very tired… they need to cut back the late night clubbing… lol… Anyway… Kris and Jon dominated the DETOURKris barely complained, these two are physically, mentally, and emotionally strong… They got frustrated, but who wouldn’t… its not like they NEVER get mad, its just they never were put in that situation during the RACE and its the Final Four, there’s gotta be a lot of stress…
AND! They almost got run over by a taxi, motorcycle AND a bus!

I think knowing this was a non-elimination took a little of the excitement (and worry) out of my viewing experience, but it was still a great episode… reminiscent of TAR3 going to Vietnam… I hate that “slashing” sound effect, it usually signals a mistake, but they were throwing it in left and right…

Anyway… what’s up with Freddy using “proper” words like “timely” and “expeditious” … lol… it just seems so out of place with his other expression “One of you… I’M GOING TO BREAK IN HALF!” … Kendra was less annoying this week…

Hayden & Aaron are still funny… but they really remind of a less likable Flo & Zach… even though Flo whine a lot, you enjoyed her and Zach‘s little fights… lol… Adam & Rebecca really argue a lot, but they still kiss and make up… wierd people… or really, wierd person (Adam)…

I think I will only be happy if Kris & Jon win… they have to win, but I’m not going to have high expectations… hmm… it should be a close finish… I wonder if its like TAR2 where the final stretch is a footrace… or TAR3 where the taxi decides your fate… I think it should have the teams walk (or run actually) from ROAD BLOCK to PITSTOP… TAR4‘s ending sucked the most, followed by TAR5… too predictable… TAR2 was the most exciting , then TAR1 and TAR3

NEXT WEEK! The 2 hour season finale of SEASON 6… Its gonna be good!

MY RANKINGS AFTER EPISODE TWELVE:

HUGE HUGE GAP

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 11 – “It’s all in the details.”







EPISODE 6-11: IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

The Amazing Race powerhouse also known as Kris & Jon led their way into first this leg… they would fall behind a little, but just smoke the competition… first at the DETOUR then at the ROAD BLOCK… all the while staying calm and cool… they are seriously the best… their placing so far in the race has been:
2 … 1 … 2 … 1 … 4 … 2 … 4 … 3 … 1
with an average placing of 2nd… please, please… I hope there isn’t a huge upset at the end of this race…
I love this quote: Jon: “Hey Holmes… you’re taking us in the wrong direction.”

I’m glad they had that little dedication at the beginning of the episode to the tsunami victims and then Phil at the end talking about helping out…

I think they did the most traveling in one REGULAR leg ever… 5 or 6 different destinations with 2 or 3 more tasks in addition to the DETOUR and ROAD BLOCKKendra continues to whine… but she and Freddy were tolerable during the DETOUR and the elephants…

Another Adam & Rebecca blow up… well really, just another Adam crying session… Lori & Bolo could’ve done well, but they were not very methodical, and at times would get very tired… How about Kris trying to comfort Bolo… just amazing… Hayden & Aaron were okay… but dissing Kris & Jon is a big no-no…

Loved that scramble to the PIT STOP… first outside with the running and the TukTuks… then at the pool… Rebecca fell into the pool after she was DENIED by Phil at the mat… lol… Kris‘s comment (and tonight’s episode title) is perfect… “Its all in the details” … they didn’t read the clues, so they didn’t know to jump in the pool… but damn, they all checked in within a minute and a half of each other at least…
This was the first time I was pissed at the HOURS OF OPERATION… 4:00PM? geez…

Anyway… one more episode until the 2 hour season finale!

MY RANKINGS AFTER EPISODE ELEVEN:

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 10 – “Are there instructions on donkey handling?”







EPISODE 6-10: ARE THERE INSTRUCTIONS ON DONKEY HANDLING?

…Aaannnndd they’re off!… THE RACE! Jonathan and Victoria are finally PHILiminated…

Okay… so the loudest, most quarrelsome, most angry, most physically violent, most annoying team in the history of THE AMAZING RACE has finally been PHILiminated… I was a little surprised, Jonathan was pretty calm… strange…

The Ethiopian children are so nice and sweet… Kendra started running her racist mouth off once they found out they were going to Ethiopia… but then she had an asthma/panic attack and so the children helped her and she changed her mind… she wanted to take them home with her… Freddy said that Lori & Bolo would never cut in front of him? He really thinks he can take on Lori & Bolo who are three times his size…

Anyway… they were YIELDED… but it really didn’t matter. Adam was a dumbass and didn’t know where to go… Rebecca was very witty this episode… liked that little mini-confrontation with her and KendraAdam and Rebecca have another “blow up” at the airport over their relationship…

Lately, Kris & Jon haven’t been performing as well as they have been… I got hints of frustration today… not good… they seemed tired as well… maybe they shouldn’t go clubbing when they’re supposed to be resting… lol… they were still they usual lovable selves most of the time though…
Jon: “Who wants to be my donkey?”

Hayden and Aaron recovered nicely in many ways, especially after last week… they went from last to first… and they stopped being so annoying… Hayden was very nice to the Ethiopians… and loved Aaron‘s crack about him being good at “guiding asses” and then pointing to Hayden… and the best part is they didn’t fight 98% of the episode which helped them regain their rootability

It looked like Phil was ready to crack up when Jonathan & Victoria arrived at the mat… which by the way was probably specially made by the locals… nice change… anyway… I don’t know what to think about these two… whether it was medication, a medical problem, or just plain acting, Jonathan and Victoria have been one of the most memorable (although unlikable) teams ever in the Race…

Overall the episode was an AMAZING recovery after last week’s pretty much slow episode… 3 more weeks, 2 more episodes until the 2-hour finale on February 8th… but just 6 weeks until the new Race starts!

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 9 – “Tell my mom I love her.”







EPISODE 6-9: TELL MY MOM I LOVE HER

My lovefest for Kris & Jon continues… strengthening it this week was Kris‘ comment about I LOVE LUCY, I’m assuming she is a fan…
“I’ve seen a lot of I Love Lucy episodes… when she smashed the grapes…and I think my face really helped…
Great ROAD BLOCK … a little tribute to I LOVE LUCY in a way…
And I got a little scared when they were at the aiport and that guy wouldn’t give them tickets… I thought we’d see the first Kris/Jon blow up, but while they were frustrated they didn’t explode and start verbally attacking the ticket agent like other teams would’ve… AMAZING job Kris & Jon… what a great team

Adam‘s a dumba$$… and good thing about them taking the FAST FORWARD was that we didn’t have to see them most of the episode… Lori was hilarious at the RB when she asked Bolo if she could drink some then he finishes it, she sarcastically thanks him and then yells at him “LET’S GO!”… gotta love TAR editing…

I think this was the first episode where Victoria exploded more than Jonathan did… screaming at the DETOUR… throwing her stuff to the ground at the vineyards… what did she say about suicide? let me see…
Victoria: “You’re going to drill that hole until I commit suicide.”
Jonathan: “Yes, until you commit suicide.”

That black dog was sooo funny, it started to run away when Jonathan & Victoria were yelling

“The Model Alliance” … Did not like Aaron & Hayden‘s fighting… and how about Hayden‘s little Flo-like moment at the repel?
Flashback to TAR3’s Flo: “What happens if I slip… am I just hanging off a cliff?”
Not really liking Freddy & Kendra still… at least she wasn’t being a racist this week…

Overall it was an okay episode… not the most exciting until the end when they were all arriving at the PIT STOP… I was kinda hoping it would be an ELIMINATION leg… but it was a NON-ELIM… oh well…

Next week it looks like the teams strip down in mud and then Victoria gets injured somehow while Kendra screams…

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 7 – “One of you, I’m going to break in half.”







EPISODE 6-7: ONE OF YOU… I’M GOING TO BREAK IN HALF

Well we got our mega leg… and first off I have to say… TAR6 has officially tied TAR3 as the best season of TAR ever… And we’re only halfway through the season…

Okay… Lori & Bolo caught up and are now in 1st place… It was hilarious the way they just easily drank the blood… That labyrinth was freaky… (By the way, the AOL sn they used to get their e-mail was loribolar6 and the sender was Routemarkerar6 lol)… that day was also August 25th…

Anyway… intense stuff at the Rail Museum… I never saw a scramble like that for numbers ever on TAR… Freddy… woah, someone was drinking that morning… what an asshole… even Jonathan was telling him to calm down, now when that happens you know you’re going overboard… loved Bolo making fun of him… anyway… how disgusting, but freakin’ hilarious was him throwing up into his soup, then eating it again… lol… it made Kendra cry… lol… She was the one who made him throw up… she made him look at the throw up on the floor

I love Jon & Kris… what a perfect DETOUR for Jon… he plays Water Polo… but the teams easily scored goals, I thought the players were suppose to be really good… Anyway… they are my favorite team of all time now… lol, first Jon commented on how hot Kris looked and now she did the same for him… why not, they really are… What can you not like about them… I felt bad for Jon though, he was about to cry… lol… Another funny moment when he was telling the chef to put a little less spice next time… “Just tone it down a little crack next time.” … in the car “… “Between the bowl of tabasco sauce and the screeching violins… it was like a torturous project.”

That ROAD BLOCK ranks up there as one of the most memorable (swimming in a frozen lake in your underwear… the masks…) Heron & Aiden… oops I mean Aaron & Hayden… As soon as Victoria starts upchucking, there goes Aaron… and then that music, what the hell… that was just chaos at the restaurant… That was a great scene in the restaurant with the three teams… I was surprised at Rebecca… but then she threw up outside… Jonathan is screaming at Victoria in the restaurant (“You can’t do this drama queen”) and then in the car he’s all like “I’m sorry I made you do that” oh man… AMAZING stuff… Victoria looked horrible afterward…

I want to ride a Finnicular (Finniculi, finnicular?)… they look cool… I thought F & K were going to be eliminated… sad that Gus & Hera were eliminated… I really liked them…

THE BEST EPISODE OF THE SEASON

NEXT WEEK: During a Roadblock, Teams go barefoot to complete a task popularized by Lucille Ball.
So they get to make wine with their feet and then get attacked by a crazy Italian woman who they get into a grapefight with…. lol WOW, my two favorite shows of all time together I LOVE LUCY and THE AMAZING RACE

DELICIOUS SOUP:

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 7 – “Phil is a choo-choo Charlie.”






EPISODE 6-7: PHIL IS A CHOO-CHOO CHARLIE 

Well it was pretty cool that most of the footage really was never-before-seen… on TV at least, I saw a few of them on THE AMAZING RACE INSIDER on CBS.com… the main conclusion from this SPECIAL episode… KRIS & JON are the BEST team ever in the history of THE AMAZING RACE

Here are my comments in order of my RANKINGS AFTER SIX LEGS OF THE RACE

I love Don & Mary Jean… they are soo sweet… love them
  Mary Jean: “I’m really pissed. I’m really pissed”

  Mary Jean: “That’s why I married you, cuz you’re strong”

  Mary Jean: “Oh my God… seven inches is really big”


Look at that… more footage to prove just how AMAZING Kris & Jon are… they help Meredith & Maria becuase they don’t have the common sense to learn to drive a stick before going on the RACE… they joke around… they play with the Senegalese children… they appreciate everything they have… they can have a good time when things don’t look so good (the trabbi breaking down… Jon spilling gas all over himself)… I love this team…


Lena & Kristy are hilarious… first the thing at the glacier where Lena says that it is warmer to sleep naked in your sleeping bag… and then the bugs and spiders in their beds at the Viking village… lol…
  Kristy: “Okay… I guess we’re sleeping naked together”


Gus and Hera are great too… love Gus‘ drinking scenes… lol… he seemed even more drunk in the car…


Ehh… they’re okay… but Hayden needs to chill though… the pushing of the trabbis was hilarious… and so was Hayden‘s comments about the Berlin wall… lol


Bolo did not do a very nice thing with pretending to be “special”… he probably didn’t hear Jonathan on the ferry, but he seemed so pissed


Rebecca is actually pretty funny… but her and her girlfriend are still annoying with their whining and fighting… How about Rebecca  seducing the guy to buy her a sandwich? lol
  Adam: “I’m happy that you’re hot… and everybody wants to buy you something”

  Rebecca: “Dude, are you freakin’ high?”

  Adam: “You’re making me look like the biggest ______ in the country.”
  Rebecca: “You do a pretty good job of that yourself… yeah.”


nothing significant from these two… but come on.. LEARN HOW TO DRIVE A STICK SHIFT BEFORE YOU GO ON THE RACE….


Okay… first, Freddy & Kendra are pretty smart… they lost not one, but two clues during the race so far… and we get more proof of how annoying they are… how many times did they argue over money? and how many times can Kendra be a racist bitch…


wow, they didn’t show “the shove” … anyway… we got more of Jonathan’s pride speech… how funny was that…
  Victoria: “Can you wash your shirt? You really stink!”

  Jonathan: “…I made an idiot out of myself”

  Jonathan: “… you’re a fu**in invalid today”

  Victoria: “Little pegs… little pegs… little pegs… little pegs… little pegs…”
  Jonathan: “Stop saying that word!”
  Victoria: “…little pegs…”

And Jonathan‘s moment in SENEGAL:
  Jonathan: “The President of synagogue is here in town… The President of synagogue has blocked the road… the President of synagogue is here today.”
