On tonight’s two episode The Amazing Race recap, we have our first megaleg in India! I believe that means there will only be one elimination over the two episodes. But that doesn’t necessarily mean only one team will leave. Otherwise it is just a non-elimination leg plus another leg. I’m dying to get started on this megaleg!
Team Purple is in first place and discovers the next destination is Hyderabad, India. There is still is a sibling Indian team who has been flying under the radar all season. They both work in online fields. The city of Hyderabad is “the cyber capital of India” so this is probably their time to shine. Everyone was on the same plane. But Team India takes an early lead and is the first to reach the clue box. The first challenge is to complete smog tests on three electronic rickshaws. Team Purple and the footballers have no idea what a rickshaw even is. So they don’t know what to flag down. Oh great. And the rickshaws are not interested in stopping. At. All. This is hectic AF.
Next. they have to deliver three food orders using the Swiggy app. Or they can do a code breaking thing. That seems to be what most of them are doing. I think I would have chosen food delivery. Unless I was Team India, the software engineers. But even they struggle early on. The blondes are the only team to do the food delivery. Team India is struggling. Hung and Chee are struggling. The blondes are already lost in a taxi. Team Purple takes the lead! They yield the blondes. I think it might have been the last chance to use their timers.
Then they have to use digital reality to locate three turbans that make three actual men in turbans. The blondes still haven’t found the food delivery place. Hung and Chee are thinking of switching detours because they can’t do the gamer part of the challenge. And they did. It looks like they still beat the blondes to that detour and they were at the first one for a long time. The blondes now have to follow directions. That is literally their worst thing. Back at the virtual reality game with the turbans. James can’t figure it out. But they still leave in third place. Chee and Hung catch up to fourth place. The blondes found their 20 minute yield. And we’re on to the second episode. And I am starting to fall asleep. I’ll have to finish this tomorrow.
On To Episode Two
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Since I did the first episode of this two part recap, I’ve watched a Lifetime movie while making my Thanksgiving dinner. The Cornish hen I think needs a bit longer in the over so, I left it in there with the oven turned off. I may or may not pause part two to eat it! It smells really good in here! I’m drinking the 2020 Beaujolais Nouveau and need some food in my belly!
Wow! The blonds and the Indian Team are still at the Turban challenges. The blonds are just getting started there. Unfortunately, that puts them at sort of a disadvantage because there are only so many pillars to match the Turban guys too. So they are left with the last three. The beards are in first. This Beaujolais Nouveau has me in an excellent mood! lol. Let’s do this!
This Or That?
The next roadblock is This or That. No one knows what either challenge is about. Tricky! Those gold bangles are making me… aroused. LOL. One can never have too many. I would totally lose because I’d stop to shop. Oh it is a bangles challenge. Now this I am made for. The guys on the other hand should have picked THAT! lol. I would so rule this challenge. Oh they do know what the challenges are. And Hung and Chee picked THAT because is was making dentures and it is gross so no one else will pick it. Jesus. They are actually going to make dentures for people. It’s gross. And apparently, it is really hard being a denture maker. Who knew you might need training?
This is also not the most ideal thing to watch when eating your Thanksgiving dinner. 🙂 The Beards are still in the lead and at the next challenge. They have to take a horse and carriage and dress in fancy uniforms to go to a fancy event and take people on horse and carriage rides. The beards yield the blondes. Next, they have to set a table for ten in a very precise manner. Footballers get the bracelets next, followed by TEAM PURPLE! right after.
The Dentures Thing Is So Gross!
The Indian siblings go next and Hung and Chee are the only ones in front of the Blondes. The Blondes stupidly did the denture things. They should have done the bracelets. They are about to hit a second yield. The beards told Team Purple that the place setting on the last challenge will be measured. I’m still not sure the Beards understand what exactly is being measured though. I think it is more than just the width of each place setting and applies to the distance between each piece. And I was right. Team Beard still doesn’t get it. I hope Team Purple takes the lead. Everyone is stuck at the place setting challenge. I think I could have done this one too. But I would have NEVER rappeled down the building so I would never have seen these.
Eventually, the beards come in first and win a seven day cruise in the Caribbean. Um, no thank you, Covid. Team Purple is second and helps Hung and Chee. Leaving the footballers high and dry. And the Blondes have to wait out ANOTHER 20 minute Yield! Yet, the Footballs make it to come in third. Hung and Chee are in trouble but leave in fourth. India leave for the roadblock in fifth. Once again the blondes have to do the challenge with no help. The blondes got eliminated and find out that the other five teams were aligned. They are such graceful girls when eliminated and played a great game.
My meal was delicious. The dressing wasn’t as good as my sisters but Banjo and I are enjoying our feast. I hope you all are too. xo ~tt
