I was a Filipino-American kid who was a freshman in high school on September 5, 2001. I loved watching television. My parents would probably say I loved watching too much television. Though (humble brag), I still did pretty well in school despite my TV habits. Having watched both Survivor and Big Brother the year before on CBS, this third new reality show called The Amazing Race seemed very interesting to me.
Phil says Joe & Bill, who were continents away, closed the gap with leaders Frank & Margarita and Rob & Brennan and are only a few tasks behind. Joe & Bill are hopeful those two teams make fatal errors to open up the chance for them to take the win.
Rob & Brennan begin the 10th Leg of the Race at 10:12am and open the first clue telling teams to meet “the King” at Raile Beach. Teams must figure out that refers to “King Climbers” rock climbing school.
Kevin & Drew begin the 9th Leg of the Race at 4:50pm by opening the clue telling teams to fly to Bangkok, Thailand. But teams also get the Fast Forward clue. The only teams still eligible are last place teams Nancy & Emily and Joe & Bill.
Frank & Margarita begin the 8th Leg first at 8:01pm, almost eleven hours before the others. But that lead won’t be as big in the morning as their next clue can be found somewhere on the grounds of the iconic Taj Mahal. And the landmark opens at 6am tomorrow. Plus! Teams will receive zero money for this Leg.
