Well... Since Olympics were mentioned. Canada Gold Medal Hockey WOOT!!! But, I'll be ditching the Closing Ceremonies. (Or I'll record it.)

I agree - Canada WOOT!

And speaking of Canada - it appears that on March 7th - Oscar night - that CTV will be broadcasting TAR an hour early - at 7pm eastern.

PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

10 teams left Valparaiso, Chile.  At the bus station, Joe caused a commotion about alliances, as the Cowboys made a bold move.  Cowboys reaped the rewards, finishing 1st.  Brent/Caite tried to soar, and Joe's knee got sore.  Jody/Shannon finished last, and were eliminated.  

Nine teams remain.  Who will be eliminated next?

Brent & Caite got the ER
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:08:45 PM
Delayed over 3 hours in ER.  But stil there in times for teams to leave.
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:09:25 PM
Phil: This is Puerto Vares, Chile.  Picturesque, monuments.  Shrine to Virgin Mary was 2nd pitstop in a Race around the world. 

Cowboys, 11:20 pm.  Find the gnome in the wall.
Phil: Scenic 6 hour bus ride through the Andes into Argentina.  El Boliche Viejo, play the gnome in the wall game.
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:10:03 PM
Brandy/Carol leave in 2nd as Cowboys try to find someone who hablas Ingles.

They ask a pretty young lady, who asks, "The El Boliche Viejo" in Barriloche?  They got lucky.

Leaving in 3rd. Brent thinks Caite has food poisoning and needs to go to Hospital. 
He tells her not to worry.

Monique/Shawne, 1:22 am, $48 for this leg
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:10:46 PM
Since the first bus only kept the first 3 teams, Brent & Caite have no problem making their bus.
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:11:38 PM
At 2:20 Caite is treated in ER, as the other teams leave shortly after one another.
She's on IV.
Finally they leave, hoping to regain lost hours on the pack.
EQUALIZED  ... everyone waiting for the same departures in the same place.

After grilling them on how they got ahead of the pack, Brandy (confessional) says the cowboys got mad tricks or summat. 

If Jeff says "Let's DO this" one more time, I'mma crack him one. 

Phil: All teams are now traveling to Barriloche, Argentina.

Cowboys: There are no mountains in Oklahom

Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:15:42 PM
Cowboys, followed by Joe/Heidi and Lesbians driving.  Cowboys lead the pack.  They follow happily.
Blind leading the blind?
Louie and Michael are incapable of following directions.
Monique/Shawne having map issues, also.
Cops decide to turn around on the highway, for no particular reason other than they're lost.
Dan can't drive a stick shift.  Does that make him a bottom, or a top? 
Jordan isn't pushing hard enough for his taste. 

Meanwhile, at the Viejo, they must play poker against the gnome.
Joe/Heidi, Lesbians, Cowboys are at different tables. 
J/H, CLUE: Take the gnome to the Pina Gauche.  (Can't read from this distance, sorry, and they can't pronounce for shit.)
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:16:34 PM
Awesome about the cowboys pointing out they aren't complaining about teams know Spanish.
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:17:27 PM
Alliance, ROADBLOCK.
Phil: Steer roping.  They must choose a roping station and rope a target 18 feet away for the next clue.

Jeff mangles Spanish, too.  
Damn shame nobody can even make manling Spanish funny.  
Where are Charla/Mirna when you need them?

Cowboys come from 3rd place to 1st on the Roping task.
CLUE: Drive to Puente Nirihuau.  
No, they couldn't pronounce it; I had to wait until the name came on screen when Phil read it aloud.
Title: Re: Episodes 3 updates and commentary*please read the rules!*

Chose them as my team on first episode after a friend on twitter (who I've known since I first joined over a year ago) mentioned she knows one of them (she's from Oklahoma as well obviously). They have far from disappointed and I would likely be rooting them on regardless at this point.

Carol is "one big, tangled mess over here."
Jeff apparently doesn't do much roping either. 
Finally Carol finishes.
Joe: If Carol can do it, you can do, too!
Heidi finishes in 3rd.
Jeff struggles in 4th.
Nobody can pronounce any of the clues.   
Nor can they follow directions or read maps.   
Brent sends Caite to "EL BOLICHE VIO-JAY." 
Steve/Anonymous play poker in 5th.

Cowboys, CLUE: DETOUR.
Phil: Choose between Horse Sense, Horse Power.
Sense: Gunslinger gives directions and coordinates; use a compass and count steps to find stolen money buried in the ground.
Power: Make your way to polo field, don attire, teams take alternating turns trying to score using the polo mallet.

Louie and Michael don't Habla, either.

Cowboys take a gander at the polo training field.
"We actually get on a HORSE!  Come on!"
They're in heaven or summat.
Until they see it's wooden, like a hobby horse!   
So they decide to carry it, instead.

Joe, driving, incurs the wrath of Heidi by missing a route marker. 

Carol/Brandy almost arrive at DETOUR as Jet/Cord quickly score. 
Cowboys, CLUE: Make your way to Estancia Fortin Chacabuco. 
Phil:  It's the pitstop.  Last team to check in may be eliminated.
Carol/Brandy will do directions and steps.
Jordeff will follow them, as they don't want to ride a horse.
Brothers sit down to play poker.
Monique/Shawne try roping.

Dan actually does ok with the lasso kissing his steer.  Carol & Brandy baldsnark to other detour.

Jordan and Jeff are not doing the detour properly.

Joe & Heidi salso not correct.

Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:34:20 PM
Compass in hand, Jordeff read the "buried loot" clue.
Joe/Heidi choose the same task, in 4th.
Joe misreads the clue, thinking he only has to count steps IF he can't find the compass points.
Carol/Brandy are equally lost, now sniping at each other.

Steve takes a hard fall with the gnome, in a rare moment on camera.  Other than falling, he's not camera worthy, I suppose.

Carol and Brandy both go all passive-aggressive on each other, fuming and smarting off.
They decide to do Polo, instead.

Brent/Caite are lost, driving, in last place.
Drama Queens complete roping before Monique/Shawne, and leave in 6th.

Joe finds a meaningless hole in the ground.  He takes a F A K E bag to the judge.
Not. Right. You.  Moron.  
Joe: What are we doing wrong?  
Clue says he has to take the fake one back and put it where he got it!

Sweaty, Joe/Heidi finally return with another bag.  
WRONG AGAIN!    
Jordeff wrong, also, on their 1st attempt.  
Jeff: I'm getting pissed!  

Lenny/Squiggy finish roping in 7th, leaving Monique/Shawne struggling.

Steve/Allie and Carol/Brandy appear on the polo grounds together.

Steve/Allie finish in 2nd.
Lesbians finish in 3rd.
Both head for pitstop.
About to squeak out of last place, Brent/Caite play poker and quickly make their way to the roping ground.
Monique/Shawne still there, making pathetic tosses.
Brent does well in his 2nd try.
Monique: OMIGOD, SHAWNE, HE GOT IT!  COME ON!!
Finally Shawne barely ropes a horn.  The rope comes off.  Ouch!  

COMMERCIAL.

Shawne prays, and asks Monique to pray with her, to rope something that counts.
DRAMATIC MUSIC!  IT'S A MIRACLE!  IEEEEE! 
 
They leave for the Detour, in last.

Meanwhile, at the Estancia ...
Man: Welcome to Argentina!
Phil: Jet/Cord, you're Team #1. You've won a 10-day trip for 2 to Buenos Aires, Chile, and Patagonia!   

Joe/Heidi switch tasks, try Polo.
Cops try to read directions and compass points. No luck for them, either.
They decide to try a "grid search."
One: You've been in police work 23 years and never done a grid search!?

Jordeff can't read the directions/compass clues correctly.
The Cops can't either.


Phil: Steve/Anonymous, you're Team #2

Phil: Carole/Brandy, you're Team #3.
Conf: If we don't pull it together, though, we'll self-destruct.

Predictable.  At the polo ground, brothers joke about horses, long objects, and the number 9.  And horse poop.

Finally, Jordeff finish the find-the-loot task and leave in 5th or summat.

Phil: Joe/Heidi, you're Team #4.

Dan/Jordan bring back fond Survivor memories of the gay guy who couldn't fire an arrow.   
Massive F A I L as Monique/Shawne arrive to challenge them. 

COMMERCIAL.


JOrdan & Jeff you are team #r, what does that tell people.

Dan & JOrdan you are team #6 (but you still race for shit!).

Girls after being last are switching detours.....

Brent & Caite Team #7.  

Lord are we going to see Phil have to go out and do another elimination.

Louie & Michael are team #8.

Phil  "I don't want to here it"

Post by: mswood on February 28, 2010, 07:56:44 PM
Cops arrive.
Dan/Jordan have to take a break in their attempts while other teams take turns.
Brent/Caite try.
Dan/Jordan improve, but don't make it just yet.
Looks like Monique/Shawne have chosen this task as well.
Dan/Jordan finish polo.


Phil: Jordan/Jeff, you're Team #5.
Jordan: You scared me!  I tried to read your face!  It's like, blank!

Cop: SONOFABITCH!  
Brent: I'm getting sore (from carrying this horse around)!

Teams run out of tries at 9, I believe.  

Brent makes the goal in 7th place.

Confessionals of the last place team ...

Monique: We wanted to be an example to our children. Never give up.
Shawne: I'm so proud of her. In so many ways.

Darkness falls.

Phil: Monique/Shawne, you're the last team to arrive. Sorry to tell you, you have been eliminated from the Race.
Conf: Happy how we represented the Moms. (Crying) The world's a beautiful place. Its people are beautiful. This is not an ugly cry at all, but a beautiful cry.

Hopefully we'll get one, unless BVM has already decided it's not worth it. But hey, two teams getting a FF at least beats the record of the last two seasons :lol:

Teams may choose to work with any team present at the Intersection or wait for another one to come. Usually teams go with the first team they see, but if there are three, they'll leave one in the dust.

If there's a fast forward, I can see the drinking as a fast forward. They're drinking a lot of beer and I could potentially see issues with having contestants who simply do not drink if it was a regular task. It would seem that drinking would be optional.

Idk, the cowboys seem to be alone at the bar and the FF is usually a double when there's an Intersection. Maybe they're just hanging out waiting at an Hours of Operation? ???

The Intersection was only used in seasons 10 and 11 (thank you).  And each time it was paired near the start of the leg (minus a route marker first) and each also featured a two person Fast Forward.  Teams then split (minus the Fast Forward teams) to do the Roadblocks.

It actually was handled well in season 10.  But season 11, it was used when teams were split by a large time difference.  Terrible placement of a task that forces a team to wait for another team if another team isn't there yet.  D&K waiting (hours I believe) in all stars for the next team to arrive.  And Eric used the intersection (according to dialogue during the race and after) to try and get the Guidos eliminated since they also had a 30 minute penalty to set out  when they reached the Pit Stop.  It was just used horribly that season.

And another fact, in both cases one of tasks set with the Intersection was a food task.  Season 10 it was the Fast Forward option (which thanks to Kimberly having trouble eating the food) allowed D&K to manage to beat the Fast Forward teams in completing the leg.

Season 11, it was both detour options that featured food (though we only saw the Sausage task as they never found the other), after all who could forget Eric's best line ever, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Miss California", as one of the BQ puked out their guts.

Girls pray (and of course, just due to their prayers, sarcasm on full), they get passed the Roadblock.

Jett & Cord are team number one, like a huge surprise.  Yeah Phil lets have the cameras zoom in on their crotches.  I thank you.
OK Phil has the cameras zoom in on Cord & Jet's packages, but apparently Sam & Dan's weapons of Mass destruction and get blurred!!!

If you were racing for 1M dollars, would you get yourself drunk (or at least somewhat intoxicated) for any non-race related task? I just can't see them drinking anything but water or soda even if they don't get drunk off that much beer.  Also, note that the mugs are in the shape of boots so it's probably some sort of touristy thing that the bar is famous for. Even assuming they wanted a beer waiting at an hours of operation, it makes no sense to order a beer that big.

Them being alone would make it seem more likely that it's FF. I gotta believe the teams get some airport bunching so them being alone makes it seem like they went for the FF. And it looks like they're trying to chug it down, which also makes it look like they're trying to rush through it.

But if there's just a single-team FF then the Intersection stops working. After thinking about it, maybe that's part of the Detour (which probably comes after the Intersection and Roadblock)

You're right. The intersection would not work, which means there is probably no FF. Unless it comes after the intersection, which could happen, but unlikely. I don't remember a FF coming after a roadblock/detour.

It breaks my heart to see my moms getting eliminated. This is another time i felt the task are just so gender discrimination again.. almost all the girls who did it struggled with it.. but since Team Ellen Degeneres didn't struggle as badly as the moms.. i guessed the right technique is needed too. I really felt like crying.. after seeing them try so hard but still getting eliminated.

Team I don't care whether they are detectives should be ashamed that they're staying in the race just because they are physically stronger than the eliminated team. It's a wonder how they're surviving and i really dislike them. They remind me of Andrew and Dan, but at least A/D were entertaining. This team reeks of annoyance.

Team Gay Brothers are just so.... :res: Love Team Father and Daughter.. worked so well and a well deserved second place! I don't know why, but i'm growing on Brent and Caite.. i have a usual gastric pain and i know how frustrated it is to have to continue with your daily activities and still enduring the pain. It is no wonder they are frustrated with one another.. because they are on a race and can't even stop to rest!

I'm also growing on the cowboys, because they are not cocky and they are smart and know what they're doing. Very impressed with them. Didn't know i'll actually even have a tinge of liking for them. Team Big Brother are pretty much.... dumb and i'm placing my bet that they are eliminated next. Team Asian are doing considerably well and working very good as a team!

Loved the RB, but if only Monique/Shawne could have performed better. I thought the directions detour was actually very good and both choices were actually a good showcase of the pros/cons of each task. If you're physically weak, you do the directions. If you're mentally .. not so smart.. you do the physical task. But if you're not good at either, you prepare to get eliminated. Lol.

If only my grandma and the moms stayed.. i would have loved this season so much more. :(

Just a side note, doesn't this season goes back to TAR, TAR 2, TAR 6, TAR 7, TAR 9 and TAR 12, where the 9th and 10th place teams are all-female teams.

Which is freaky.. imagine 7 out of 16 seasons had such a trend.

And another team falls to the 9th place all female team curse. TAR, TAR 2, TAR 3, TAR 6, TAR 7, TAR 9, TAR 12 and TAR 16. 8 out of 16 seasons.

Sigh.... when will an all-female team win.

Wow. I've been thinking this season was too easy, with its watered-down tasks and such. But if there's one thing that this episode proved to me, it is that this particular course is designed to be easy out of pure necessity, because this batch of teams is (for the most part) strangely lacking in intelligence. I'm not just talking about Jeff & Jordan, either. With the exception of Jet & Cord, Steve & Allie, and Monique & Shawne, I think every team made a mistake on this leg. This does not bode well for the remaining teams, since yet another of the "smart" teams was eliminated. (I only say they are "smart" because they are the only teams that have the average intelligence of Pre-Season 12 teams) After this point, the results for the remainder of the season may simply come down to who makes the worst mistake, rather than who makes a mistake, period. I'm not sure what to make of this. :res:

On the plus side for this week, we got to enjoy and laugh at the errors of the teams we don't like (while hating the errors of those we do), we got to see a somewhat surprising (but still sad) elimination for those who knew the spoilers, and we had more self-driving and departures (thank goodness, it feels so refreshing). And with the self-driving came the opportunity to see the team numbers (which this season were covered up in black on the backpacks by producers trying to hide it for no apparent reason). I enjoyed that, even if nobody else did, because I like to analyze the numbers they give to certain teams and why. :lol:

And it's the first time in a while (I think since TAR 6) that we've had a team depart at a different time than their scheduled one. Interesting indeed.

As for next week, the Intersection makes a return? Why? I (and I thought most other people as well) loathe it. Usually what it does is drags a strong team down by tying them to a weaker one, or makes one team wait for hours for the next team to arrive. Plus I don't think a Fast Forward should be done by two combined teams unless it counts as having been completed for both teams (unlike Oswald & Danny in All-Stars). This could have been an interesting surprise if they had waited to reveal it during the episode, but instead, by revealing it this early, they ruined the entertainment value of the surprise. And that just makes me disappointed, rather than surprised. :groan: But I still think it will be a great episode. Wonder what Jet & Cord were doing all by themselves on a leg with an Intersection, though. ???

Unlike the case with Maria/Tiffany (which is dubious, I think), Monica/Shawne (and the other teams) had a nonphysical Detour task they could elect to do (unless walking gets them down, idk  :duno:). Had they switched earlier they probably would've survived, I think. They had a lot of heart though, and I'll miss them.

Based on how this is going, I'm very curious as to how the spoilers will pan out. (though, as Hooky said, it might come down to who screws up the most on each leg).

Really nice tasks on this leg

Quite a difficult detour, If only Monique and Shawne did better, Not really one of my favorite teams but I was not happy when they got eliminated, They were quite good and tried their best.

I'm rooting for the cowboys!  :wohoo: They're my favorite and they did very well in this leg!   :hearts:  :yess:(though it seems like they had an advantage with the tasks) Still they're my faves!

the intersection is coming back on the next leg, I wonder how the teams will do

Yeah, so that's why I didn't see it either. I watched commercial-free at a later time.

Was it anything special or was it pretty boring?
