Urine Danger

WARNING: This post contains spoilers from last night's episode of The Amazing Race. Leave now if you do not want to be spoiled....



...There.  Now that you're still with me, I wanted to give my take on the end of the penultimate leg of the race last night.  First of all, this ep was the second-funniest of the season thus-far (the cheese wheel madness of ep #1 is still tops).  The makeup efforts by Luke were hysterical and watching two sistahs try to speak mandarin (coming up with some great mad libs style sentences) was priceless.  Well done Phil for putting together two hilarious detours.

I know that Keisha said she was proud of her sister and that she didn't let her down but how on earth can you stop to take a long pee when you have a 1 in 4 chance of winning a cool million?   Instead of stopping, just pee on the run.  You just drank several bottles of water so most of your pee will be water anyways.  And you're already wearing a goofy Chinese outfit so you can't look any more ridiculous with urine stains.  In the end it seemed that Jen just didn't have the killer competitive instinct needed to get to the end of the race.

My money is on Tammy and Victor to take it in the last leg.  They're just a bit smarter than the other two teams.

I watched it last night and did enjoy the ep. I hate the cheerleaders - especially the nont-Cara one. The sisters must have been much further behind than the editting though because the cheerleaders were cleared off before they got there.

I like Jamie. She's fiesty and bold and humorous at times.
