We start with a recap of last leg, it gave C/A their first lead of the race.

Nancy/Melissa experienced an inspirational RB and bumps, and won their first leg of the race.

A potato farm detour had teams digging deep. While it looked like D/K looked in peril, it was L/M who faced a penalty and were eliminated :(

This is PEI, on its sandy shores the 9th leg will begin.

N/M leave at 8:53am, fly to Mexico City.

T/C leave at 9:22 am.

M/P leave at 9:26am, their taxi driver is Korean

D/K, leave at 9:39 am, which indicates they were not that far behind.

Dylan: Travelling to a foreign country puts everyone on an even playing field.

Teams are flying via Toronto to Mexico City. They will go to Monumento a La Revolucion, ride a elevator and get a special clue from home.

TC arrive first to the monument. They get a message from their dad.

C/A are in second, they get a message from Adam's parents.

They get their clue from their loved ones. They have to go to Fronton Mexico, which is next door to the monument.

RB: Who wants to live the hi-life.

One racer must land a serve correctly, by hitting wall and it must bounce back and land back in between lines 3/5. Each attempt = 3 tries.

Both courtneys doing the rb.

N/M get a message and are in third. They get in the taxi even though its next door ? lol

Courtney of CT fails her first three shots (first attempt)

Courtney of C/A is practicing now. She also does not get it in her first three shots.

D/K are in fourth, they get a message from a kid they helped out in Forth Mac. Kwame gets emotional.

We are back.

And both Courtneys are still struggling.

Courtney of CA gets it!! They choose Muertos.

Courtney of C/T still struggling.

D/K arrive first to the fountain of the coyotes for the painting detour.

N/M arrive to the largest market. They realize this is a hard task as the market is huge lol. Nancy says we should have picked the face painting lol.

Dylan gets Kwame painted correctly. Martina/Phil arrive now. C/A arrive to the face painting.

Courtney of C/T is crying now as she is not getting any better.

She tries underhand and gets it relatively quick. They choose the face painting. The detour split is therefore 4/1

Martina gets  Phil painted correct. Phil gets a bit passive aggressive with Martina lol.

D/K finish the detour. Clue: Make your way to a residence.  Perform in a classic Telenovela. Each temmate must choose a character and memorize a scene in Spanish.

N/M get Mary an English speaker to help them lol.

My, the boot order's been unexpected this season :o

First the Ontario teams drop in a row, then two of the previously strongest teams.

Fredericton. That checks off the last of the 13 provincial and territorial capitals, 3 seasons after the rest.

They get outside of Canada and we get one of the better legs.  Rather than darts we get a sport that none of them have probably seen before and it seemed to be more about learning the technique of throwing than strength.  The acting task was probably the best one, though there was much more focus on getting the Spanish words roughly right than the acting, I didn't think Phil bothered much with playing up his part. 

Much of the drama ended up being about taxis, which made it tense but also made luck a big factor.  I don't know why they can't use public transport in cities instead.

Good locations, the family messages seemed more to try and play up the hero theme again.

I just realised that unlike the first few seasons they don't even bother trying to make a link to Canada with foreign locations now.

Had to watch the episode on CTV website, after the livestream completely froze on me mid-way through it.
Fun leg, not sure I'd rank it above the TAR28 opener, but I am probably biased, as I am probably among the few who loves 28.

I love Martina's excitement, I hope Martina & Phil will make final 3.
Weird that they don't even try to tie the international legs to Canada anymore. Got used to that being a thing.
The Telenovela challenge reminded me of the Western Challenge in the LA in leg from TAR China. And pornstache was amazing.
The Detour options were interesting.
The taxi race to the pit stop were hectic.

Not that bothered by losing Nancy and Melissa. Still gutted by losing Leanne and Mar last week. But that was an exciting footrace to the mat.

Still prefer FO over H2H, but another sports themed FO?! They do need to be more creative on that front.  At least this one looks to be more exciting than darts.

Leg 9

Mexico City has become quite popular lately with TAR 28, TAR China, HaMerotz LaMillion, and even Belgian Mole. The tasks were all decent, but I do think that the Detour wasn't the most exciting television. It's absolutely crazy that we got another photo finish to avoid last place. Did my best to remain spoiler-free, so I was shocked to see Nancy & Mellisa eliminated. I wouldn't rank this leg above TAR 28. Overall, the leg in Mexico City was good, but there have been better international legs and even Canadian legs.

Loosely goosely Martina  :funny:
The skateboarding dog  :funny:
The entire telenovela task  :funny:

Jai Alai: Difficult task to open the leg though strength wasn't required to get ahead. Am grateful that this task wasn't the sole reason for leg placements.
Mercado: Probably would have been better with more teams.
Muertos: It was a nice cultural aspect but it also wasn't too exciting.
Telenovela: Definitely the highlight of the leg. The task was hilarious though they were generous with Spanish pronunciations. 

3.5/5

That said, Jakarta was better as well as Panama (City) from last season.
