EPISODE ONE – Los Angeles, California to Praia, Cape Verde

http://www.seeing-stars.com/Images/Slides/Observatory.JPG

 

Phil: I'm standing near the Griffith Park Observatory, the starting line for the Virtual Amazing Race. From this park, 11 teams will race around the world for $1 million. Speedboats are racing the teams toward the starting line. The eleven teams are:

Juni & Kim, moved from Korea two years ago for a better life and are now dating

Mara & Charlene, Openly-lesbian, hoping to find the secret to a lasting relationship

Morgan & Baxter, Professional surfers and lifelong friends from Long Beach, CA

Brenton & Delta, a black orphan boy and Latin orphan girl who became siblings from TX

Vivienne & Marien, twin sisters born in the south of France who reside now in NY

Cal & Rodney, middle aged gay men who were shunned by their families residing in OH

Troy & Larraine, married Obama supporters with three children from Kentucky

Nigella & Nico, mother and her fitness freak son from Colorado, with a “rocky” relationship

Ozzy & Amanda, met on Survivor now with a budding relationship still strengthening daily

Sydney & Ingrid, married with grandchildren. They are fierce competitors from Louisiana

Stacey & Derek, met at a modelling set 3 yrs ago and have been dating ever since from CA

Phil: Who will come up with the right combination of brains, brawn and teamwork to win the $1 million?

Teams assembled on the green situated just outside the Observatory to receive the rules from Phil.

Phil: In just a few minutes, you'll be leaving on a race around the world, separated into legs. There will be various tasks to be completed throughout them. At the end of each leg, there is a pit-stop. Eight of these pit-stops are elimination points. If you're last, you'll be eliminated. There is cash to cover all expenses except airline tickets which you won’t need to pay for. Your first clue is waiting inside the envelope on top the luggage you have brought with you. When I give you the word, you can run over to your bags, read the clue and run to the marked cars in the parking lot. The first team to cross the finish line at the end of 11 legs wins $1 million. Now is everybody ready…

All: Yeah! Yeah!

Phil: The world is waiting for you.

Phil: Good luck, Travel safe.

Phil: GO!!!!!!!!!!

Ozzy and Amanda reach their clue first with Morgan and Baxter and Juni and Kim just behind them.

Ozzy: Fly to Praia, Cape Verde

Morgan: Once there find…

Kim: Miradouro Diogo Gomes

Stacey: You may only travel

Rodney: On one of two flights

Delta: American airlines Flight#429

Mara: or United airlines Flight#613

Nico: Hurry, Hurry seats are…

Troy: first come first serve

Marien: once in Praia…

Ingrid: search for your next clue

In a flurry the team’s race to their cars, Ozzy begins to yell

Ozzy: Amanda…Babe hurry lets go

Charlene: Oh my god, what are we doing Mara, (she kisses her)

The teams depart with Vivienne and Marien bringing up the rear.

<Currently in Last Place>

Vivienne: Marien we need to step it up we can’t afford to…

Marien: I am, baisser de ton (calm down in French)

Vivienne: alright Mimi we need to take the 405 to LAX.

Marien: Are you sure

Vivienne: Positive

Meanwhile in Sidney and Ingrid’s car

Sidney: Look who is that who are we passing

Ingrid: Troy and his wife I think

Sidney: I love them…don’t you?

Ingrid: Hun take the 405, I will signal them to follow us

<Almost at the airport>

Amanda: I can’t believe we are doing this…

Ozzy: I know…..wait what’s that…who is passing us

Amanda: Oh it’s the boys, don’t let them pass

Ozzy: I’ll step up the speed

<CONFESSIONAL>

Amanda: Ozzy is extremely competitive, I am certainly
a competitive being but not to his extreme

Ozzy: My number one rule is never to be passed it is
Extremely important to never be passed by another team
that gives us more drive to win in my eyes.

<CONFESSIONAL ENDING>

<Boarding Shuttle>

Amanda: Here we are, first available spot O.K babe

Ozzy: Shuttle there’s a shuttle, come on!!

<Running for shuttle>

Stacy: Shut-up and calm down, psycho

<Now Currently in 5th Place>

Brenton is talking to his partner Delta

<Currently in 6th Place>

Brenton: Delta we must head to the 405 and take the south to LAX

Delta: thanks

<CONFESSIONAL>

Delta: I was born a Latino child and Brenton was born
to an average African American family

Brenton: all of her parents died from a disease and her family,
she was the only to survive

Delta: Brenton’s father died and his mother having 4 kids couldn’t
care for them all and so to put it nicely she got rid of Brent
 
Brenton: we next met at an Orphanage, and one day when a
Middle aged white family who were wealthy came picked Delta and
left

Delta: Almost left, I said to them ‘I am not leaving without Brenton
And they said ‘fine well take Brenton too’

<CONFESSIONAL ENDING>

Mara: I love you Charlene, Cape Verde…I can’t wait!!

Charlene: I know…..Mara…

Mara: Yes Charlie

Charlene: follow the other teams

Mara: I am

Charlene: What I meant was, was that right now you can take

Delta: Were here, right lets go

<Shuttle arrives>

Brenton: get on

<Nigella and Nico and Mara and Charlene arrive on the shuttle>

Delta: I spoke too soon.

Phil: Teams may take American Airlines or a United Flight. The American flight lands later in Cape Verde but departs earlier than United, while United leaves later and arrives earlier. United holds 6 teams and American holds 5 teams, when the teams land in Praia who will excel to the front and who will become the first team to be eliminated from the race.

I like the Korean American Brother & Sister.  I just hope they can work together on the Race.

Looks like I've been inspiring quite a few Amazing Race-based fanfics!

i didn't quite follow the spoiler exchange there - but thanks to both of you for welcoming me on the other threads  :waves:
kiwijay, don't know if this is your first time to the cooks but i do know you'll have a great time! i was on raratonga, aitutaki and atiu - love them all! the aitutaki lagoon has the best snorkeling and kayaking i've seen anywhere, and atiu is simply unique - say hi to juergen and andrea who run the best (well, one of two) "hotels" there, as well as the only 2 businesses (not quite but feels like it :-0).. be careful now, and don't get a "cook island tattoo"!!
