This episode actually reminded me alot about many incidences which happened in the past seasons.
On Zev and Justin checking in first and getting eliminated -
Heather and Eve, anyone?
On Zev and Justin losing passport -
Toni and Dallas, anyone?
On Maria and Tiffany arriving last but not eliminated -
Kelly and Christy anyone?
On Sam and Dan, Gary and Matt, Herbert and Nathaniel continuously being the top 5 teams -
Season 9, Eric and Jeremy and BJ and Tyler anyone?
Season 1, Kevin and Drew, Joe and Bill and Rob and Brennan anyone?
Season 4, David and Jeff, Reichen and Chip, Jon and Al anyone?
I love the Detour, but would have loved it more if there were more people in the market. This could have been a great Roadblock in India! Find the girl wearing the scarf, in an Indian market! EPIC LOVE.
Thought the persuading a family of 4 to buy helmets was actually quite easy and was shocked the teams didn't actually wanted to do it. I'm very sure a family of 4 in cambodia can afford 4 spiffeh helmets for 10 bucks over there.. and it's for safety as well, so why not? And you get to be shot on The Amazing Race too?!?!
I didn't like the Roadblock. I thought it came off as lame and very insulting towards the Cambodian culture. Next time people think about Cambodia on The Amazing Race, the first word that will probably pop up may be "Monkeys". Cambodia is not all about monkeys! I loved TAR 13's Cambodia leg so much more. The leg then was so much fun and showed as the land and sea of the country and so much of her culture and people.
And i'm just darn sad Zev and Justin lost their passport, but i'm darn happy Maria and Tiff got to stay for another leg! <3
I'm officially rooting for Meghan and Cheyne and Brian and Ericka. I just can't find any reasons not to love Meghan and Cheyne. They're just such a lovable couple!
