Recap: The Amazing Race 9, Episode 2 – “I’m so fat I’m just going down!”











EP 09-02: I’M FILTHY AND I LOVE IT

Well… episode 2 and TAR9 is slowly… very slowly… building momentum.

Fran & Barry, unfortunately, haven’t redeemed themselves yet. Right now, they are not even Meredith & Gretchen-lucky. Come on guys! Get yourselves together! Pick up your game!

Lisa & Joni… well, can’t say I’m surprised. Their exit was sad though, they were true TAR fans, unlike some other teams who have “ulterior motives” for being on the show…. anyway, they didn’t RACE well so, too bad.

Eric & Jeremy were pretty funny at first, but then when every other sentence out of their mouths were jokes about sex or women, they just came across as horny. And that comment at the end about smacking Phil woman? Not funny… Wanda & Desiree got a lot less screen time this week…

BJ & Tyler are okay, but kinda corny… Lake & Michelle are treading into that disfunctional couple category… “LAKE CALM DOWN!” …

Dani & Danielle are boring, and not that good of racers… Ray & Yolanda haven’t left much of an impression yet… David & Lori are amusing…

and finally, Joseph & Monica are awesome, they are shaping up to be pretty good. I caught shades of John Vito & Jill when they were running today.

So, the episode was kinda wierd. With both the ROAD BLOCK and DETOUR in the first 25 minutes, the last half hour seemed too slow and uneventful. The editors haven’t been at their best the last 2 episodes, where’s the witty quips? Well, I thought the flow of the episode was unusual.

Anyway, the ROAD BLOCK wasn’t too exciting. And two repelling/climbing-type tasks in the same episode? Plus that ascender leaves its infamous mark.

And the VW bugs? They definitely do not match TAR6’s trabbants… I still want one.
