Previously on The Amazing Race...

Teams continued racing in Argentina. Bopper & Mark had an early lead. A bus had a shattered window. Rachel and JJ teamed up and Dave & Rachel got first. Dave couldn't do math and he and Cherie were eliminated. :(

Argentina! An enormous tree. And now we start.

Rachel & Dave depart first at 12:22 AM.

Fly to Asuncion, Paraguay. Teams receive $200.

Art & JJ depart at 12:25 AM.

8:45 AM departure is very full. There's a waiting list that Rachel & Dave and Art & JJ have gotten their names on.

Rachel & Dave and Art & JJ were sold tickets. Now they're happy.

Jamie & Nary and Bopper & Mark got on the standby flight too. Those 4 teams got on the first flight.

For Border Patrol agents, the guys are pretty arrogant. Then again, you need attitude to be a Border Patrol agent.
And only five teams get on the first flight. Standby. And the 2nd plane is two hours behind the first.
Title: Re: Ep 3 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please read post 1 !!!**
Post by: Polaroid on March 04, 2012, 07:12:05 PM
The standby flight lands first.

Art & JJ get the first taxi. Bopper & Mark follow. Jamie & Nary are next. Rachel & Dave are last out of the airport.

Art & JJ have to find a clue in this slide mess. :lol3: "WHEEEEE WHEEE WHEEEEE." :lol3:

Art & JJ find the clue. Detour! Stacked Up or Strung Out.

Stacked Up: Stack up a 10 by 10 pyramid of watermelons.

Strung Out: Attach 36 strings to the harp.
Title: Re: Ep 3 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please read post 1 !!!**
Post by: TARAsia Fan on March 04, 2012, 07:12:45 PM
I'd go for the watermelons over the harp stringing. But I wish people were throwing tomatoes like in TAR 10.  :lol: :lol:

Post by: Polaroid on March 04, 2012, 07:14:16 PM
Art & JJ start with watermelons. They're not afraid of getting dirty, sweaty... and stuff. That's nice.

All the other teams arrive at the watermelons. Bopper: "It's hotter than new love, baby!"

Rachel: "I'm pretty sure I'm not going to have any babies after this!" :lol3:

Mark clunks Bopper in the head with a watermelon. The locals laugh.

The second flight lands.

Mark eats out of a broken watermelon. :lol:

Dave & Rachel start shouting at each other. Dave: "Sit down and cry." :duno:

Nary & Jamie and Bopper & Mark's watermelon stacks both fall down. And so does Rachel & Dave's pyramid. What a disaster.

Art & JJ: I love being on the race. I love it, I love it.

Rachel & Dave switch detours. Dave wants to use the express pass, but Rachel doesn't. Nary & Jamie switch. Bopper & Mark switch, and they steal Kerri & Stacy's taxi. They lied to Kerri & Stacey about the difficulty of the watermelon stacking.

Roadblock: Bottle Dance.

Balance a bottle on top of their dance and perform a choreographed dance. If all the bottles provided are broken, they get a 2 hour penalty.

Art is doing the roadblock.

Art finishes. Art & JJ are so far ahead. Pit stop is a monument... Art & JJ finishing first on leg 3. We all know what this means! :tup: They win a trip to the Bahamas.

Rachel & Dave arrive and they use their Express Pass. :ascared They're now heading to the roadblock.

Brendon & Rachel arrive at Stringed Out.

A few watermelons on Vanessa & Ralph's pyramid fall.

Brendon & Rachel's harp is good! They're out of the detour in 3rd. Bopper & Mark are out of the detour in 4th.

Vanessa & Ralph have a very ugly looking pyramid. A few of their watermelons fall off again.

Joey & Danny finish the roadblock in 5th.

Vanessa & Ralph are doing really poorly. More watermelons falling. And more.

Elliot & Andrew finish shortly after.

Elliot & Andrew can easily outrun Vanessa & Ralph...

But Vanessa & Ralph arrive at the pit stop before.

Vanessa & Ralph - 8th

Elliot & Andrew are in last. And they've been eliminated.

Elliot feels like he let Andrew down. :( And now we have some cheesy brotherly love.

Elliot & Andrew exit down the stairs while Vanessa & Ralph continue up the stairs.

On next week's episode of The Amazing Race...

Teams go to Italy.

Rachel & Brendon fight.

Nary is bungeeing?

Art has to land a toy helicopter on JJ's head (he has a helmet on with a landing pad). It might be the other way though.

Dave & Rachel have to paint a statue. And more arguing.

And more arguing with Brendon & Rachel.

Seems like a dramatic episode.

That's what I thought, but he means that they are the only team not to finish ANY tasks in the whole leg and stay in the race! :tup:

The express pass use, I think it's just thrown out there because I can see how both Dave & Rachel's adrenaline pumped up and were so afraid of losing time, and afraid to lose their number ONE title so far...

But on the other side, I'm confident though, if they can work it together and keep their spirit up, they would've finished either tasks...

But again, not for the case at the Roadblock, Dave could still get penalty and grounded for 2hours...  :duno:

I was puzzled at first as to what Phil meant as to Rachel and Dave, I was thinking they were the first team to be penalized who couldn't complete a task (as in exhausted the stated limits of the task) and survived the leg. Didn't occur to me about not having to complete either task and surviving the leg. But I suspect my original thought may also be correct as every other task penalty has involved quitting the task when they weren't limited by the instructions in some way.

The leg seemed very linear though.

Post by: Katarzyna on March 04, 2012, 09:47:23 PM
It's a great leg, but it's very predictable. The tasks were great and demanding. I love the detour. It's so tricky. I love how 99% of the teams overlooked the harp task. They immediately thought it would be very detail oriented and too time consuming. I love the roadblock twist.

If this leg was done in season 17. It would be x10 more fun to watch.

This leg was very entertaining!  The tasks were difficult and it was a nail-biting race to the mat!  I do feel bad for Elliot & Andrew and wish they would've made it further.  They seemed to have a dark cloud surrounding them throughout the race, much like the sisters.
As much as I dislike Art & JJ, they ran a flawless leg.  Here's hoping the "3rd leg curse" continues!

Post by: Jobby on March 05, 2012, 12:51:51 AM
People, this was a really good leg. Kudos to Art and JJ for being the ONLY team who KILLED the leg. BUT, I still DETEST them because they're just so smug, irritating and completely full of themselves. I just wish they get eliminated soon but it seems like they're going a long way. This team is getting on my nerves COMPLETELY, because when they are not in first, they bitch and whine. And when they don't get what they want, they bitch and whine too. And even when they are in first, THEY BITCH AND WHINE as well. Seriously, they along with Michael and Louie is killing the fun from me watching the episode. BUT THANK GOD THEY CHECKED IN AT THE 22MINS AND I DIDN'T SEE THEIR FACES ON SCREEN EVER SEEN.

For the record, I think Rachel and Dave are the ONLY team who didn't complete ANY task on the leg and still SURVIVE the entire leg. It seemed like they crashed and burn for this leg, failing the Roadblock and choosing to quit the Detour. For the record, we don't really know if they will encounter problems with the string Detour. But honestly, I really think they should have tried the Detour and not quit it. BUT, if they tried the Detour... and encountered problems, then they are the ones definitely eliminated since Dave failed at the Roadblock. So I would say, considering it was a really bad leg for them, the Express Pass used was legit and deemed since they failed at the Roadblock and that means if they can't do the Detour and fumbled like Vanessa and Ralph and the twins, they could be the ones eliminated.

I can't believe teams spent 2 hours trying to stack those watermelons.. and teams from the second flight caught up. Seriously, Joey and Danny (not that annoying anymore and I give them credit for being "nice" people) and Rachel and Brendon ran a really good leg and I'm so happy for them about it. They are still not my favourites but I gotta give them credit when it's due.

Can anyone tell me why did Dave and Rachel not rushed to the pit-stop to check-in in fourth place since it seemed like Nary and Jaime was really like beyond their 3 seconds count at the pit-stop? I believed they could have checked-in fourth but I think Phil did not expect so many teams to check-in together and he didn't call them in! And did I say that with so many check-in together, it made the ending so EXCITING? 2ND VS 3RD, 3RD VS 4TH VS 5TH, 8TH VS 9TH... it was really fun and entertaining to watch!

Good job to Kerri and Stacey for keeping it there. 7th place is really good since they are not one of those teams who fumbled. And they made a smart choice by switching early when they see Mark and Bopper leave. I thought that was a really SMART move because honestly, I don't think they could have finished the watermelon task!!

Elliot and Andrew... nice people and sad to see them gone... I like Vanessa and Ralph's attitude towards the challenge, and that they persevere and did not quit until the very end.. But seriously Vanessa, that was uncalled for calling out Rachel (BB) for no reason! It was really rude and I don't know what was that for. I'm with Rachel (BB) with this and I think that was pretty immature of her to do so. Does anyone have an explanation what took Elliot and Andrew SO LONG at the Harp Detour? I know they have to unstring cause they miss a string, but... they sure took a long time!

OH and did I mention I LOVE LOVE LOVE ALLL THE TASKS THIS LEG? The Detour both was a matter of skill, NO LUCK involved and if you do it well like Joey and Danny and Art and JJ, you will be fine, and if you HAVE NO SKILL, you suck and fumble. And I bet the Amazing Race LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WATERMELONS NOW! ME TOO!!! Now we know it's not just India leg which bring drama... WATERMELONS TOO!!!! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

THE ROADBLOCK... it was a matter of skill AGAIN. If you do it well, you can be gone in a matter of minutes. But if you SUCK, you take the 2 HOURS PENALTY! I think this is the first time that a Roadblock penalty is not 4 hours long!

Oh dear... I darn darn darn love this leg. It's really a series of coincidences and chances which made this leg exciting from the beginning to the end... and we got to see a little flight drama which made me remind of the earlier seasons of TAR!! <3333333333 Anyone knows why did Brendon and Rachel and Kerri and Stacey not get onto the first 8.20 flight but Nary and Jaime did? I think that saved their asses too! :wohoo:

I'm sorry. i just have to say my opinions this leg. firstly, it was AMAZING  :hrt:

and we heard the word 'standby' this episode at the airport. can someone please tell me the last time we heard the word standby in TAR?
seriously though, the airport drama may have been minor but added to a great episode  :wohoo:

and the DETOUR - both required skill and patience; classic TAR  :conf:

and even though I'm not supporting them, I'm giving kudos to Danny and Joey for completing the watermelon task  :tup:
also kudos to Rachel and Brendon, even though i don't like them , they smoked this episode  :tup:

leaving the last kudos to Art and J.J. - don't hate them, they deserved their win

its funny because the teams I'm not supporting all came in the top 3  :lol:

the roadblock was great!!!
and such an intense run to the Pit Stop because they showed Vanessa and Ralph slowing down and the Twins speeding up, EPIC  :yess:

my heart goes out to PARAGUAY  :hrt: the nation delivered a WONDERFUL episode  :tup:

they should revisit Paraguay and do an ENTIRE leg SWITCHBACK  :lol:

seriously though, spectacular episode, this is what we've been missing in the latest TAR seasons,
RACE MOJO BACK!!!!!!!!!  :wohoo:

Nary does the roadblock. Kerri does the roadblock.

Rachel finishes the roadblock. She bows and gives a little victory dance.

WOW. Joey finishes the roadblock in 4th.

Rachel: "THE JERSEY SHORE IS GOING TO BEAT US." :lol3: Brendon & Rachel outrun Joey & Danny. Rachel is completely out of breath and she's coughing on the mat.

Brendon & Rachel - 2nd

That's the heart of a winner... very obviously not in danger of being eliminated, and still fighting for position.

I think it was poorly played. They should have either gone to the harp stringing or stayed at the watermellons and only played it if they were the second to last team that hadn't yet finished the task... but not before.

What are the exact rules of the Express Pass? How far along in the leg do they have to decide if they want use it? Can they start to sit out their two hour penalty and only play it if they see the last place team approaching the pit stop?

I guess I'm the only one who thought the Express Pass was used well. I mean, obviously they should have played it immediately, but they had no idea the detour was going to cost so much time. When they made it to the other side of the detour all the second flight teams were there as well. What if they had as hard a time with this side of the detour as the other side? Whoops! And then comes a two hour penalty?

So Art and JJ SMOKED the entire leg, that's what it was. None of the teams even came close. I feel that this team could actually win the race. They've not been given a really bad edit (although I still don't like them), they work well with each other, and are a really competent team.

I loved this leg's Detour. Both tasks required skill and meticulousness (very important aspects of the race IMO) and can't be completed that quickly. It was a good test of teams' ability to work together calmly, so kudos to the producers for placing two excellent tasks for the Detour.

I was really sad that Elliot and Andrew were eliminated. Three legs in a row, three teams I liked got eliminated. Did I mention I'm not gonna enjoy this season very much? Especially with the blatant dominance of Art and JJ, Rachel and Dave and Brendon and Rachel. Not that it's their fault that they're dominating, but it makes the season so boring and predictable. Ah well.

I  will say what several of you have been hinting at. This episode was simply the BEST episode of the Amazing Race ever. The DETOUR options were brutal and so was the ROADBLOCK. The whole episode just had an incredible appeal to it, with lots of loose threads to take up in future episodes (Rachel vs. David, Vanessa vs. Rachel).

Comments :

Art and JJ

They did an awesome leg. Reminds me of Andy and Tommy in Phuket(1) last race. But that comment about "I love been on the race" it's just momentanious. If they struggle more ahead,they will not be feeling this.

Brendon and Rachel

Besides the fact that i never got his name right,i'm liking them. Rachel did very awesome at the roadblock and detour.

Joey Fitness and Danny

That was a team that I BET we won't see doing a better leg that they did in Paraguay. They did very well on the detour and roadblock,i think they might be the underdogs of this season (besides for this leg's placement)

Bopper and Mark

They didn't got so much airing time. But i'm surprised with them,i expected to see them in the bottom of the pack! Mark smoked the roadblock.

Nary and Jamie

They were persistent,that's good for this race.

Rachel and Dave

How could a team be like...the best one there, and them one leg later,become the worst team in there?

Kerry and Stacey

Nothing to say...no much air time for them today

Vanessa and Ralph

It was a shocker for me seeing Ralph so pacient with Vanessa. That was just awesome of his part. Detour was ridiculous...

Elliot and Andrew

Their elimination was kinda emotional...nothing more than that.

Rachel and Dave had a really bad leg. For some reason the EP was burning a hole in Dave's pocket, he will probably be better off without it. And he had no chance at the roadblock :lol: He couldn't even stand still with it on his head! This season is turning out to be really epic! They have gotten back to really hard tasks and the team dynamics are interesting this season.

In the secret scenes there was some drama about Brenchel telling the cousins that Vanessa was saying bad stuff about them but they couldn't remember what :res: Then Kerri and Stacey were mad at Vanessa and Ralph after that.

Can anyone tell me why did Dave and Rachel not rushed to the pit-stop to check-in in fourth place since it seemed like Nary and Jaime was really like beyond their 3 seconds count at the pit-stop? I believed they could have checked-in fourth but I think Phil did not expect so many teams to check-in together and he didn't call them in!

I didn't get that either :duno: I guess that the on screen graphic timer may not be entirely accurate but it seemed like it took longer than three seconds for the other teams to come.

The most it's going to cost any team (Rachel/Dave) is 2 minutes since the release times typically space teams out by 1 minute each. That means that Mark and Bopper will be released at time x, Nary and Jamie at x + 1 minute and Rachel and Dave x + 2 minutes. However, if seating on flights to Europe are scarce, a 1 minute difference could be significant.

Seriously, Joey and Danny (not that annoying anymore and I give them credit for being "nice" people)

When you say "Joey and Danny", do you mean Joey FITNESS and Danny?   :duno:

What I really want to say: What is your problem dude?

But because this is a friendly forum, I shall rephrase myself and say, Do you have a problem with it? :)

It was very obviously nothing but a joke... sorry if you somehow took it as something else.

Surely a one minute difference could be made up or lost during the transport to the airport.

It would have been really interesting if that had been the elimination moment but it is probably better that it was not. I think Dave and Rachel actually made a strategic decision to skip all the tasks because their good flight gave them the luxury to do so. Hopefully they will be rested and have a better day next time.

I still don't think a team should use the Express Pass without first trying to do the task. It shouldn't be "OH, all the teams are here and we're last.... EXPRESS PASS". It defeats the purpose of the Express Pass of really skipping a hard challenge or knowing you're WAYYYYYY behind. Dave and Rachel probably freaked out seeing the other teams are there, but forgot that if they took 2 hours to complete the challenge, other teams who did the Watermelon Detour could be spending this amount of time too!

I don't think it matters a lot on next leg departure, apskip. I'm more interested in the overall average of Dave and Rachel since now, they are set 2 rankings behind when they could actually be in fourth.

I somehow missed this, as I thought Rachel and David spent a long time doing the watermelon pyramid only to have it collapse on them. Only then did they switch to the harp stringing and later the bottle dance, both of which they did skip.

They didn't skip the bottle dance RB.  Dave broke all the bottles that were allotted for the RB, thus incurring the penalty.

Gary and Mallory did the same thing on the dinosaur roadblock on Leg 5 of S18

I  will say what several of you have been hinting at. This episode was simply the BEST episode of the Amazing Race ever. The DETOUR options were brutal and so was the ROADBLOCK. The whole episode just had an incredible appeal to it, with lots of loose threads to take up in future episodes (Rachel vs. David, Vanessa vs. Rachel).

i totally agree....i enjoyed every minute of it...!! specially the ending, it was so close!!! hope they come back here very soon!!  :jam:
