OMG Y’all Team Purple, Will and James retweeted my recap on Twitter last week! I literally have the best twitter friends. I’m the only asshole and they are all nice! You can follow me here if you are into Twitter. It is literally the on social media I run myself. And forewarning, I am worse than the Cheetolini about tweeting whatever is on my mind at all times. 🙂
Okay, now I am in my happy place. I’m a bit late to the party but I am going to take my time and enjoy this and not worry about getting it up fast. This is BY A MILLION MILES my favorite thing on TV. I get to travel when I can’t travel. And I can’t stop picking out to places to go too. A friend of mine has a big job offer in Dubai and that may be my first trip. I’ve got to save those 90 days in Europe…until I devise a plan.
Like most Americans I always neglect going to South America. I don’t know why that is. But I am seriously considering moving to Punte Del Este in Uruguay. I hope they go there! But for now they are off to Columbia. Maybe I will travel to Dubai, Morocco and Europe and then settle down in Uruguay. I’ve already prewarned you this will be a travel blog at some point. FYI I think the season we are watching now was filmed in 2018 well before the pandemic… But the next season was shut down after a only three episodes were filmed. 🙁
I am so far behind because I forgot to pull photos and frankly I could not have if I had remembered because we had a power outage today. 🙁 But I pulled a few and now we can all head to Columbia! I want that corn! Meanwhile in real life the sirens are unceasing. I could check NextDoor but am not sure I want to know until tomorrow. It ain’t me and that is all I care about. Maybe the giant owl ate someone.
The Nemocón Salt Mines
Going off to the salt mines I immediately think of my friend that sent me a pandemic package early on and it had fancy salt. I probably should have used it on my porkchops but I feel like it should be used for a special event. lol. Anyway everyone is racing through the mines and trying to pick up an hourglass on the way. The hourglasses have either ten of twenty minutes on them and they can choose another team to delay by that amount of time. Oh, This could get ugly if they use it all on my footballers. Phil is talking about the timer on a yield. I guess there is a yield this leg and that is where the timer comes into play. If they yield someone they use the timer.
YAY! Team Purple gets a 20 minute timer to play! I can’t believe they slept in the salt mine. Wouldn’t there be BATS? Oh! next they are off to find emeralds. That is my type of game. The other choice is to find gold. Suddenly, I am very excited about going to Columbia. Hung and Chee continue to be in first place.
Then It Is Off TO The Circus!
Who doesn’t like a circus? I would totally go to this. I would not however waddle the tight rope. Oh no! I am already worried about Team Purple. They seem to be too trusting of the other teams. Also, I think team footballers are lost. This is a disaster. But people can still play the timer somehow. The girls are all having issues with their taxi drivers. I think it is two sister teams. The footballers make it to the circus first and choose not to yield anyone. Hung and Chee are second and do the same thing. Why make enemies when you are kicking everyone’s ass already?
It has taken me an hour to get twenty minutes into this episode. First they are rolled around in a wheel to get dizzy and then they have to walk across a tight rope holding a bottle of wine on a tray. Then they make them walk back with the wine and two wine glasses. The footballers are the first to leave the circus followed by Hung and Chee.
The footballers tip off Team Purple that it is tightrope walking. And Will and James have a tiff. Each wants the other to do it. James convinces Will to do it because he is a dancer. I am very worried about this argument. And Will is being kind of snappish to him. FOCUS TEAM PURPLE. I AM ROOTING FOR YOU! WE ARE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU! /Tyra Banks. This does not bode well. But Will kills it. He also tells James to step the fuck up because he isn’t going to do all the challenges.#LoversQuarrel
Customize A What?
The footballers are the first to the next challenge where they have to customize a Volqueta which is some sort of monster truck type of thing? The add all the decorations according to the finished example but the hard part is knowing where the horn goes because it is sort of covered up. LOL I love James. When he gets to this challenge he is all like “Yes! Arts and Crafts!” He names the truck Claudia. Meanwhile, Alana from Team Eyeglasses struggles mightly with the tight rope walking. She drops her wine bottle multiple times. The ninth place team CHOOSE NOT YOU YIELD? No one used their Yield? Idiots.
This leaves the that leaves Team Olympics in last place. They still can’t find the location. But the do and will l probably beat the blond girls. Meanwhile Hung and Chee are still running way out in front. The footballers chased them quickly after. Hung and Chee came in first again and won a trip to Switzerland. Followed by the footballers. Meanwhile, teams struggle with the truck decorating and the horn is tripping them all up. Oh no! Team Purple is really struggling! COME ON!!!! Oh thank God they hooked up the horn! They cry and hug and kiss and head for the finish line!
The Finish Line
Back at the finish line the volley ballers come in third. Eswar and Parma are time number four and I honestly can’t remember seeing them at all this episode until they crossed the finish line. Michelle and Victoria came in fifth. TEAM PURPLE comes in 6th! YAY! And the other four teams can’t figure out that they need to hook up the horn. I just want the dad and son team to make it. Team eyeglasses finally figured it out. And on the way out the told the girl team about the horn and everyone saw them working on it and got to it. Father and son team are in ninth place! I hope there isn’t a foot race with the last place team! YAY! They are team nine!!!!! The two track runners are out. This was a great episode but I feel like I took a hand full of downers or something. Why is my brain so damn slow tonight? I don’t even have wine!
