AMAZING RACE – 4/28/13

April 29th, 2013 | 1 Comment | Posted in Amazing Race 22

Back to the sheep intestine “pudding” task. I don’t know what the hell is going on with this one and I really don’t want to know. Haggis: The Wikipedia definition:

Haggis is a savory pudding containing sheep’s heart, liver and lungs; minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach and simmered for approximately three hours.

Yum. I think I would’ve rolled a barrel of sh*t to the moon before I taste tested something that fit this definition, but whatever. I guess with a one in five chance at a million dollars on the line, you’ll eat anything. One of these seasons, maybe they’ll have actual sh*t sitting there for these morons to eat.

Anyway, as an aside, this task led me to an obvious question: Do the country girls flirt with anyone and everyone with a penis? I think Hitler could be in the room and these two would be rubbing up to him like a couple of purring cats. They are flirting with the annoying, disgusting-toothed goofy guy in 1500s garb that was milling around this task, telling him they like older guys who are seasoned. All this while fondling the above-referenced sheep innards. I didn’t mention it yet, but they also flirted with the 103 year old bagpiper, one even declaring him her husband. Of course, they kiss these ugly cooks before leaving this task too. No shame, these girls. The Duke is probably not pleased.

Bates and Anthony are first to the U-turn and they quickly U-turn Meghan and Joey. Max and Katie are next and they U-turn Mona and Beth. Mona and Beth also have a speed bump to get over, but they are done with the bagpipes faster than Meghan. The Speed Bump is pretty easy too. This one is basically bowling, though there are no holes in the ball. You get a strike, you move on. It took them 16 tries, but how long could that have taken?

We next see Katie and Max running to the pit stop and I must say she has the weirdest run. I noticed it earlier, but thought I was seeing things. But no, she has a really goofy run. She kind of takes these tiny tiptoe running steps, all while bouncing up and down or something. Pretty effing goofy, if you ask me.

Joey, Meghan and the Roller Moms all do the disgusting haggis task. The Moms finish first, but realize they are U-turned. Meghan and Joey finish the Haggis task and then realize they are also U-turned. It is a true race to roll those barrels but Meghan is dragging *ss on this one too. Joey is forced to help her roll one barrel at a time and the Roller Moms easily finish the task first. You sucked this week, Meghan.

Pit stop order:
1. Max and Katie (Win $10,000 each, though Katie basically yawns over it.)
2. Bates and Anthony
3. Caroline and Jennifer
4. Mona and Beth
5. Meghan and Joey (Eliminated).

Finale next week! Who do you want to win (or lose)? I have to say, I think I’m pulling for the Roller Moms. They are annoying me the least at this point, which actually isn’t saying much. Anyway, see you next week for the finale!

One thought on “AMAZING RACE – 4/28/13

  1. I am just now getting around to reading your recaps. So true about Bates and the ‘never played bagpipes before’, but just as stupid was Meghan’s “I play the trumpet so I’ll be good at this” line.

    I would never eat haggis! I could only stand to smell a kidney pie once! It was so nasty! My husband thought the whiskey barrels were empty because the hockey boys were hauling them so easily.
