EP 09-10: MAN, THEY SHOULD HAVE USED THEIR FAKE NAMES
That was a great episode. Everything from the little conversations the teams were having with each other to the photo finish to Phil almost getting hit with the whips or whatever those things were.
It was nice to see the teams interacting, even though it was hostile at times. The canceling of cabs, the confrontation at the airport, waiting in the middle of the night… I enjoyed those first 15 minutes.
The ROAD BLOCK was another TAR standard… skydiving. The DETOUR, however, was much better. The WET DETOUR probably would’ve much more fun if it wasn’t for the stress of the Race. Getting to wade through an Australian jungle would be so cool! 🙂 And of course, in the DRY DETOUR, getting to play the didgeridoo with an Aboriginal would so much fun.
Both DETOURS definitely showed off a great side of Australia.
I didn’t mind Eric & Jeremy‘s cab canceling… I don’t know why. I despised Romber for their tactics, but I somehow can’t hate E&J. Maybe its because it was against BJ & Tyler who are continuing to be annoying non-stop. Causing a rift between Monica & Joseph based on their relationship might be going a little too far and personal. Of course, MoJo are a pretty strong couple, as we saw last night. Through all of it, they had their little disagreements but in the end they were nothing.
The scene at the YIELD where MoJo doesn’t realize it was over was hilarious. I love the TAR cameramen/women… they are the best.
That finish was probably the closest finish I can remember. Not TWO, but THREE teams arriving practically side-by-side with that literal Photo Finish slow-mo being used twice. Usually, close finishes have a team lagging behind towards the end of the footrace, but all three teams ran their hearts out to the mat as if this was the Finish Line. What a finale that would be if it turned out that close??
The non-elim wasn’t a surprise though… Good to see BJ & Tyler having to scour for money again. I wonder who’ll give BJ (or is it Tyler) shoes?
