Previously on the Amazing Race...Teams raced from Senegal, Africa to Berlin, Germany. Some were moved to tears over the plight of slaves while others tried to bring their slaves wives to tears. Seven teams remain, who will be eliminated next.
Cue lots of pictures of chics in bikinis. Yeah, probably what I would have one on too if the camera crew was coming to my house for a photo shoot.
Commercial for "Meet the Fockers". My kids love this shyt…it's not really swearing if it is misspelt now is it Mom.
Phil begins his yakking about the remaining teams. They will be departing from the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
1. Freddy and Kendra at 2:55 am 2. Johnathon and Victoria at 2:56 am 3. Hayden and Aaron at 3:11 am 4. Kris and Jon at 3:12 am 5. Gus and Hera at 3:13 am 6. Adam and Rebecca at 3:33 am 7. Lori and Bolo at 4:30 am Yes...almost an hour later suckers!
Teams must head to Checkpoint Charlie, the infamous crossing between East and West Berlin during the cold war.
Speaking of cold war, a confessional from Victoria. Blah, blah, blah, I don't like to be screamed at but that is just Johnathon, blah, blah, blah.
Freddy and Kendra are the first to arrive at Checkpoint Charlie and receive their next clue. Head over to Olympic Stadium where there is a sign-up sheet for their next task. Everyone follows, pretty much in order. We are even treated to a sight of Gus getting in a taxi to head to the Olympic Stadium. The way his t-shirt was hanging over his pants, I had to do a double take...I could have sworn he was wearing his tighty-whitey's over his pants!
Following the pattern of the day, Freddy and Kendra are the first to arrive at the Olympic Stadium and sign-up for some 'unknown task' that will begin at 6:00 am. Bunching. Kendra thinks that they should go and do some research and when Freddy says no, she gets all huffy and says she is not going to take this and that. Victoria, are you listening?
Aaron and Hayden (team AaHa, who have no clue) beat J&V to the stadium by a whisker and it is a footrace to the sign-up sheet, which thankfully, AaHa wins. The true team player, Johnathon only writes his name on the sheet. Vic has a fit. Maybe if she's put her foot down 10 years ago, this yahoo wouldn't be walking all over her right now. Aaron laughs at them, "They're such spazzes". Now, I love Aaron, but I saw him skiing in Norway and I am not sure he should be calling anyone a spazz.
J&V go sit in the cab and fight some more. Kris and Jon arrive and Hayden tells them the sordid tale. Kris says "They should probably have some counseling".
At 6:00 am, Kendra, who is now chipper (did Princess have a pedicure or facial or something) gets the first clue.
Cue Mr. Exposition Hands…Roadblock. Phil explains the "lazy.assed.Kim" rule that no more than 6 roadblocks may be completed by one person.
The task: Hot Rocket Bungee. J&V must have jumped for joy when they heard the title. Wasn't one of their earlier adult films entitled "Hot Rocket Bungee". Turns out that a hot rocket bungee is when you get strapped into this contraption attached to a crane and they slingshot you 200 ft into the air. I'm sure that chiropractors everywhere were hoping this ride comes to a fair near you ($$$$).
It's gonna be an all-girl challenge in honour of the lasy.assed.Kim rule. Kendra is first. Please don't tie it, please don't tie it. Darn they tied it, but thankfully she is down for the count…except that she still won't shut up "I'm dizzy baby".
Next clue; fly to Budapest, Hungary. There, pick up a notoriously unreliable car that is 'sure to break down'. Oh goody. Visions of J&V and maybe Kendra stuck at the side of the road deliciously enter my mind. Teams must drive 62 miles to the town of Eger where they will find their next clue.
Back to the bungee where we see all the rest of the chics flying through the air. Do you think it would have been physically possible to catapult Gus into the air?
