Here’s Some Real Memorable Moments from 10 Years of The Amazing Race

Here’s Some Real Memorable Moments from 10 Years of The Amazing Race

CBS posted a nice video highlighting ten moments from the last ten years of The Amazing Race in celebration of its 10th Anniversary.  But I couldn’t help but feel like they dropped the ball with some of the choices, so I decided, why not collect some of my own choices for the best, most memorable moments in TAR’s 10 year history.

Here they are!

Why TAR7 Episodes?!

THE AMAZING RACE

Ewe… why the hell would they choose 2 season 7 episodes to submit to the Emmys… ugh, they could’ve submitted the Philippine leg or the finale of TAR5 or “Quit Following Us” from TAR6 where they pay tribute to the slaves in Senegal… There’s also “What if this isn’t sanitary?” where Don starts to cry tears of pride after Mary Jean completed the Road Block…

I think those episodes are a lot more Emmy worthy than Rob the asshole being an asshole… his cockiness and “jerkiness” just supercedes the amazing Meredith & Gretchen after Gretchen fell down in the cave.

If I were an Emmy voter, I’d give the Contender the Emmy before I honor TAR7… If it was being judged on TAR5 or TAR6, then TAR would be a shoo-in… now I’m not so sure…

“Pieces” is definitely the best one…

Recap: The Amazing Race 7, Episode 12 – “These are really good balls!”









EPISODE SEVEN-TWELVE: 5 CONTINENTS, 25 CITIES, AND MORE THAN 40,000 MILES

I WISH I WAS AT TARCON!

Well… Season 7 is finally over… and it was definitely a satisfying finish… UCHENNA & JOYCE definitely deserved to win… I think out of all winners of THE AMAZING RACE… they were the most deserving and they had a legitimate reason for wanting to win too… Congratulations to them… I was yelling at the TV at the end… they WERE NOT going to lose becuase they didn’t have enough money to pay for the taxi…
But they pulled it out… I was scared… American Airlines made up for SCREWING KRIS & JON last season by letting UCHENNA & JOYCE on the flight… well not really, I’m still not flying American Airlines ever… they screwed KRIS & JON out of a million dollars… but I hate them less now… lol

The final overall was probably one of the weakest (if not THE weakest)… the tasks were very easy compared to the past final legs… I mean come one… LIMBO? for a ROAD BLOCK? Jumping into the water? Come on… at least jump out of a plane or something… I guess it makes sense, the finale fit the entire season… not so good…

Anyway… ROB & AMBER‘s luck, which has carried them throughout the entire RACE, showed throughout these final 2 legs… I would’ve wanted them to lose like TAR1’s Team Guido or TAR4’s Goats… but oh well… they still lost… I was laughing, praying isn’t going to help you repent for all the sins you’ve committed Rob lol, on TAR AND Survivor…

I would’ve rather had Ron & Kelly be 2nd… I don’t really hate them… Kelly always seems to be joking when she says something mean, unless she and Ron argue… but the POW comment wasn’t serious… she’s not a bitch… Kendra was a bitch… Rob‘s a bitch… Kelly‘s not a bitch…

I don’t know what to say. Overall this season has been okay… definitely not the best… Definitely the weakest cast, MEREDITH & GRETCHEN were the only ones that I was upset at being eliminated… everyone else was just “there” …

Well TAR8 is on its way… Family edition? ugh… I don’t know, TAR is definitely not getting better that’s for sure…

QUOTES FROM EPISODE TWELVE:

Recap: The Amazing Race 7, Episode 11 – “I don’t know what straight is!”








EPISODE SEVEN-ELEVEN: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT

MEREDITH & GRETCHEN! NOOO! I was totally expecting a non-elimination this leg since I would never think that TAR would have a team go into the final leg without any money…

Ugh… ROB & AMBER can go straight to hell… I think I remember when someone on Survivor called Rob the devil… damn asshole… They’ve gotten an unfair advantage this whole race with all those people helping them while everyone else on the RACE has solved the clues and complete the tasks on their own… and how freakin’ rude and plain mean was his comment about the Turkish ritual they saw… he is an incredibly ugly piece of work…

HUGE PROPS to RON & KELLY for being to able to guide themselves with only little help from the English while Rombuh has a star truck famewhore bring them everywhere… I am really surprised by Ron & Kelly‘s bickering, they don’t seem like the kind of people that would do that… maybe they’re acting…

UCHENNA & JOYCE need to win this RACE… After getting screwed over with the FAST FORWARD and not winning anything by being FIRST, TWO times already… they NEED to win this RACE… I can’t believe the assholes won another prize…

MEREDITH & GRETCHEN… they fought hard throughout this entire RACE… they’ve been the toughest team ever, they fought through adversity, overcame the BIGGEST AMAZING RACE obstacle ever with the non-elimination twist, came back from being back in the pack, and showed everyone that they could do anything… They completed some of the toughest DETOURS and ROAD BLOCKS… they were always so appreciative, so supportive of each other, and many times, they came up with some of the wittiest and funniest quotes of the entire series… They are truly right up there with KRIS & JON as one of my favorite TAR teams ever… (TAR1’s DAVID & MARGARETTA too :))

CONGRATULATIONS MEREDITH & GRETCHEN
You truly ran an AMAZING RACE…

They finally go to LONDON… I would really love to go there someday… it looks beautiful… I don’t know about this doubling back on the route… they’re not going to cross the Pacific Ocean this time around…

QUOTES FROM EPISODE ELEVEN:
Gretchen: “Are they big boats!”

Gretchen: “My ass is whooped”

Kelly: “I DON”T KNOW WHAT STRAIGHT IS!”

Recap: The Amazing Race 7, Episode 10 – “A 66 year old lady shouldn’t be doing things like this”








EPISODE SEVEN-TEN: WE HAVE A GNOME! WE HAVE A GNOME!

Oh man… Meredith & Gretchen, what the hell are you doing?!?!? I was yelling at the TV everytime they got lost… but they are very determined… Gretchen rocked at the Road Block though… I am so happy they are still in the RACE and chugging along… They’re just saving all their energy for the final legs… GO MEREDITH & GRETCHEN!

Uchenna & Joyce are so nice to help M & G… I wouldn’t mind it if they won…

Knowing this was a non-elim, I was soooo wishing that Rob & Amber were last so they could get everything taken away from them… Rob is such a dumbass… “Duhhh… what’s a gnome?” I was so happy seeing them not make the early flight… I think Uchenna & Joyce and Meredith & Gretchen are at least an hour ahead…

Ron & Kelly… wow Kelly is so random.. what was that POW comment about? was she joking? I think she was…. oh well…

That scale DETOUR was so random… Turkish like strange people weighing them? lol… and how about that Travelocity plug… lol TAR is getting so commercial… lol… ONE MORE EPISODE UNTIL THE FINALE!!!

QUOTES FROM EPISODE TEN:
Meredith: “This man has so many stickers on his windshield… I don’t know if he can see through it”

Gretchen: “Step it up old man”

Meredith: “Gerome, the Gnome”

Sign: “Taksi”

Gretchen: “We want grande people! We want big man!”

Gretchen: “Aww… 58… That’s a lightweight!”

Gretchen: “A 66 year old lady shouldn’t be doing things like this”

Recap: The Amazing Race 7, Episode 9 – “We have a bad elephant!”








EPISODE SEVEN-NINE: WE HAVE A BAD ELEPHANT!

Definitely the best episode of the season… it was funny when that man gave them their clue on the train, he looked scary while he was walking through at 1AM… lol… India has always been the most hectic and chaotic destination on the RACE… and it was no different tonight… I loved all the chaos during the DETOUR… It was insane… but man, talk about child labor… Rob was pushing the kids to help them push the elephant… and then poor Meredith had to push the elephant all by himself with a bunch of kids… why did that man tell Gretchen to get up on the elephant? But then she should’ve gotten off anyway… its okay though… they are still awesome… FINAL FOUR BABY!!!
Woah, just rewatched the episode and it was funny when they had those two “gay guys” in front of them helping them… lol…

I have to say… while I love Meredith & GretchenJoyce deserves to win just for doing that… In the recycled FAST FORWARD (from TAR5 when models Brandon & Nicole refused to shave off their golden locks) it was so heartbreaking to see Uchenna do that… I hope they really do receive good luck… if not winning the RACE, then being able to have a baby… they totally deserve it… there was a lot of foreshadowing, sehe was wearing the headscarf she “stole” (lol) from the temple last week…

Lynn & Alex… too bad they were eliminated before Rob & Amber … It was funny that they actually put on all their clothes again in the hopes of it being non-elimination… Ron & Kelly, well just Kelly redeemed herself when she tried to get the Indian people to help a very tired Meredith

Rob was pissed at the mat though… he wanted 2nd so bad he shoved Ron & Kelly at the mat…
The wedding looked fun… everyone (except Romber and Ron & Kelly) looked like they had fun and enjoyed the wedding celebration…

Well, next week should be a non-elim… then either a non-elim or elim depending on if they will have 3 or 4 teams in the 2 hour finale…


QUOTES FROM EPISODE 7-9
Lynn: “I would drink my skin care if I had it with me.”

Lynn: “Oo… its like Cinderella’s castle”

Gretchen: “We have a bad elephant!”

Amber: “I’m holding the elephant’s tail”

Rob: “Its tough organizing Indian labor”

Kelly: “Elephant parking!”

Gretchen: “I should have never gotten up on that elephant!”
Meredith: “Its okay, you had a good ride.”

Gretchen: “We got an obstinate camel”

Gretchen: “Talk nice to the camel!”

Gretchen: “We had a slow elephant… a slow tuktuk… and a slow camel”

Recap: The Amazing Race 7, Episode 8 – “There’s like donkey crap all over the place.”








EPISODE SEVEN-EIGHT: MOW’EM DOWN LIKE GRASS

All right… we have another double leg… yay! People may complain about the To be continued at the end of the episode but I love it… It makes the episode more exciting and eliminates a non-elimination leg… which in turn keeps Meredith & Gretchen from losing everything AGAIN… I was so worried becuase I was expecting this to be a non-elim… so YAY FOR MEREDITH & GRETCHEN! lol how sweet was it when everyone was applauding them and asking for their autogrpahs… forget RombuhM&G are the celebrities!! And them shopping for a backpack… lol “Do you give a senior citizen’s discount?” “No” lol, how mean of the guy…lol

Speaking of Rob & Amber… they were not as annoying this week… and it was so great seeing them and Phil’s little smirk when he said that the leg wasn’t over yet… they are definitely not going to win… The ticket agent was soo funny when Rob told her not to help the other teams… her facial expression was like “you’re such an a$$hole”… lol

I’m starting to like Lynn & Alex more now… Uchenna & Joyce too… and I’m starting to like Ron & Kelly less… However I didn’t really like how Lynn & Alex were helping M&G just so they could easily beat them in the final…

I don’t think a YIELD would have mattered in this leg… I can’t believe they had another “luck” ROAD BLOCK… at least there wasn’t another Lena & Kristy disaster, althought it almost was like that with Gretchen… Another shade of TAR6 was the DETOUR where they had to deliver tea… it was like the famous “Brahaus Spandau” DETOUR where Gus got drunk… lol…

TAR has been to India on every season but two I think (TAR6 and another one)… how about going back to the Philippines? I doubt they’re going to bring the stupid families to the PI… stupid Family edition…

Anyway… GO MEREDITH & GRETCHEN!!!

QUOTES FROM EPISODE 7-8
Meredith: “We’re all on the same flight, now we don’t want to break a hip”

Amber: “Watch out for the cows”

Ron: “There’s like donkey crap all over the place.”

Alex: “Ow, my butt hurts.”

Tea Owner: “Oh you look all tired sir”

Gretchen: “Oh shame on you for taking the tea”

Meredith: “He wanted tea too bad”

The Amazing Race 7 Recap Episode 7 + Others

THE AMAZING RACE: EPISODE SEVEN-SEVEN THEY SAVED THE EYEBALL
Nothing special about this episode… TAR6’s recap was a lot better… more “never before seen footage”… this episode just made me hate Rob & Amber and Ray & Deana even more and made me love Meredith & Gretchen even more… They are definitely the new Teri & Ian, except older…

AMERICAN IDOL
My ears are still recovering from Fantasia’s screaming… or what some people call “singing”

LOST
So they killed off Boone? Hmm… I thought someone was going to die on the season finale? Maybe he’s not dead? Maybe he’s the mastermind behind the whole crash… who knows…

ALIAS
Hmm… So Vaughn is looking for his father? Okay… but I can’t believe it filled a whole episode… how boring, even the weekly “Sydney is danger” scenes were boring… Jack is awesome… Victor Garber is a great actor… remember when he and Whoopi Goldberg played Paolo Montalban’s parents in Cinderella? That was funny, but nice effort at a multi-culture cast…

LETTERMAN’S ‘SOAP OPERA CLIP OF THE NIGHT’
How hilarious was seeing Precious on Letterman last night… People must have been like “What the hell is this?” lol… it was the scene where they were aring out the house becuase Beth opened the gas line to kill Sheridan for the 50th time… and it was freezing in the house so Precious comes out in Beth’s fur coat holding a bottle of gin, jumps on the table and drinks a whole glass of gin… the audience was cracking up… Letterman, before the clip, was like “this is the reason TiVo was invented”… this show is “money in the bank” and then after he was like “If more than one person is watching this show, its the end of civilization as we know it.” lol… I think he’s done “Soap Opera Clip of the Night” a few times now, and all times were of Precious and Passions… so basically Letterman is advertising it for free on CBS… lol… People will probably watch to be like “What in the hell is this crap?” lol

Recap: The Amazing Race 7, Episode 6 – “Here’s a goat with nice big teets”








EPISODE SEVEN-SIX: HOUSTON, WE HAVE AN ELEPHANT

Okay… where do I begin… Meredith & Gretchen… man, I was yelling at the TV when they missed the clue… but they really are the “AMAZING comback kids” like TAR3’s Teri & Ian… what was with all the newfound hate for M & GLynn & Alex said they were stupid… geez, bordering on Ray territory there…
But they’re still in the RACE… Let’s go into the FINAL FOUR!!!!

Well, the teams are thinking about non-elims now, they know how to predict a possible non-elim leg… but they were wrong this time… next week is probably non-elim, so another week of Romber probably…

Brian & Greg were funny… but I’m not really sad that they were PHILiminated… we don’t need another “alpha-male” team to win the RACE… Uchenna & Joyce are okay… geez, those little things, Phil was just trying to get something going with making teams go back and complete the ROAD BLOCKs… lol, but it didn’t happen… Ron & Kelly… what was Kelly listening to? How did Ron saying “Just chill out” turn into “Shut the f*** up” ? lol anyway… they’re okay…

How cool was it for them to be able to drive through the African Bush and see all those animals… Rob made a pretty dumb comment… He thought the giraffe’s tail was a monkey… geez… but anyway, it was pretty cool for them to do that…

All the tasks seem to be physical this time around, not thinking tasks… I liked those… oh well, the season is slowly getting better… once Romber is gone, the show will take off

TOMORROW… special recap episode with BONUS FOOTAGE, TAR’s deleted scenes… which are pretty funny most of the time… lol…

QUOTES FROM EPISODE 7-6
Lynn: “Thank you cow cow”
Alex: “How now brown cow?”
Lynn: “Thank you Mr. Cow”

Gretchen: “Here’s a goat with nice big teets”

Lynn: “Hello goats”

Gretchen: “Don’t spill a drop or I’ll kill you”

Alex: “How many gay guys does it take to milk a goat”

Lynn: “Let’s see if we can destroy this [car]”

Lynn: “Will you put on underwear as a headband”

Phil: “The fashion police is going to arrest you in Africa?”
