Amazing Race 10 - Episode 13 (The Finale)

I was actually home to watch this one and also taped it to ensure that I got all the cool stuff.

Aired December 10, 2006

The race started at: 25 after the hour due to the football game going over.
Phil recapped the episodes and prepared us for the final two hours where one team will win $1M and the race

From the 11th pit stop in Barcelona, Spain, Rob and Kim left at 11:09p
The clue is to go to the Sagrada Familla to find their next clue
It’s been under construction for the last 124 years; they do not know that this is the building they want. They asked the locals, found out the name and then took a cab there.

Having arrived second, Lyn and Karlyn left at 11:24p. They asked two boys for directions to the church. Funny how people were still up and about at that time of the night.

Rob and Kim could not find the clue as usual.

At 11:53p James and Tyler left and saw three girls and asked for directions.

Then Rob and Kim found the clue finally.

As Phil explained the next leg of the trip, they showed a Boeing 777 from behind flying; nice shot! It could have been an Air France aircraft or a Continental aircraft. The clue is to fly to Paris, France to the Eiffel Tower for their next clue.

They then got a cab and went to the airport. I’m sure they have to wait until the net morning to get a flight, since it was so late.

Then James and Tyler got to the airport. They got to the airport at 1a and the desk opened at 4a. So they all had to wait

James and Tyler argued about checking for an Internet café and one said why bother, then settled down on the floor to sleep with the others.

Now Bama finally found the clue box and hailed a cab for the airport.

They looked at the boards and saw a few flight choices. at 6a to Paris
Iberia at 7:25a to Paris

As the windows opened they all tried to buy tickets, but there were only three seats left on that first flight and Rob and Kim got the first two.

One seat left for the 6a and Tyler and James were next, but they needed two seats of course, so they have to get a different flight. The lady told them to go to Air France in Terminal A. Odd as I thought that would be where they would have gone first; geez…

So Bama started to walk over to Iberia, while Rob and Kim got on the first flight with 1:05 minutes lead.

Bama got the 7:25a flight to Paris’ arriving at their second airport, Orly at 9:05a using Iberia; can’t find that flight in my schedules… The girls did ask which one is closer to the Eiffel Tower and the agent said Orly, which is true.

James and Tyler argued about the fact that they could have done something last night as opposed to just sleep and wait for the ticket office to open; oh well, hindsight is 20/20.
Then they got on the 7:05a arriving at 9:00a into Charles De Gaulle on Air France.

Rob and Kim were shown boarding a’s Airbus A320, they then showed them settling in inside the interior of the plane.

As they showed Flight 1 at 6:00 a.m., an American Airlines Boeing 757-200 was shown taking off! Holy cow, what happened to the Airbus A320 they just boarded?

Next they showed the two boys getting on an Air France Airbus aircraft as Flight 2 at 7:05a and showed an A318 taking off, but the scheduled flight is actually an A321. There was also a British Airways Airbus A319 landing as well.

They then showed Bama heading out to a parked Iberia Airbus A319 on a bus on their way to Orly. Then showed them settling in onboard as then as Flight 3 at 7:25a.

So Phil says all three teams are now on their way to Paris, France and once they land, they have to make their way to the third floor of the Eiffel Tower where they will find their next clue, and they showed an Air France Boeing 747-400 landing; nice, but could they at least show one of the types they took off with?

When he mentioned Flight 1 arriving at Paris Charles de Gaulle, they showed an MD-80 landing. Then showed Rob and Kim taking the RER B into the city as it was faster than taking a cab and less costly as well.

For Flight 2, they showed an Air France Boeing 777 taxiing at Charles de Gaulle airport; then they showed Tyler and James asking airport employees for the faster way to the city. They agree that the train is the way to go, but there was a long line to get tickets, which is usually the case at De Gaulle depending on when you arrive; especially early morning.

Next they showed what I think is an Iberia Airbus A320 landing at Orly, then showed the two girls walking down the jet way and getting a cab into the city.

Lyn and Karlyn arrived first
Followed by Ron and Kim

The new clue is to take the train from the St. Lazare station to Caen airport for the next clue.

Finally Tyler and James arrived and got the last clue and headed for St. Lazare

Ron and Kim took the Metro after asking directions while Lyn Karlyn took a taxi.
So did James and Tyler as they were really running behind now.

The train to Caen was at12:25p.
Ron caught up with Bama and now they are all on the same train to Caen

In Caen they all took a cab to the airport for the next clue.

Road block: fly to 13,000’ and one team member do a tandem skydive and then a surprise aerial nose dive to Omaha beach. Then be taken by jeep to meet their partner
James and Tyler were first; Tyler will jump.
Then Bama
Then Rob and Kim arrived crashing into the clue box

So Rob is bummed as he wanted to do the skydive, but it is Kim’s turn
So is Kim as she wanted him to get that opportunity.

All teams suited up and headed aloft for the task.

James and Tyler’s team were first

Then Bama (Karlyn jumping)

Then Rob and Kim (Kim jumped)

Once on the ground, they went to the train station to meet their partner

Jams and Tyler were first to reach the ground; the new clue is to head by train back to Paris for 163 miles, to Place de la Concorde for the next clue

James and Tyler at 5:33p arriving at 7:37p
Then Bama
Then Rob and Kim
Now they are all on the same train
Rob and Kim had to change money at the post office into Euro so they went to the post office 10 minutes away as they had time; will they miss the train?

A train showed up and they (Bama and the boys) took a train at 5:10p
When Rob and Kim showed up they wondered where they all went

So then the 5:23p train showed up. Did the others take the wrong train?
So there were two trains and now they are caught up at the connecting station arriving in Paris at the same time

In Paris, finding a taxi was a chore as usual
Bama first
Rob and Kim second
As Tyler and James waited
Finally they got one

Bama arrived first
But Rob and Kim found the clue first.

Art – pickup a painting and take it to an artist
Fashion – create a jacket at a fashion school

Rob and Kim asked for direction to the fashion place
Bama showed the fashion as well

Then James and Tyler arrived.

Now all three are doing the fashion assignment

Bama was the last to arrive.

Finally James and Tyler finished and got the clue.

The clue is to fly to New York, NY and go to find the giant globe in a building for their next clue. New York would be the last stop.

They showed from underneath, a Boeing 747 taking off when they talked about NY,
I think it belonged to Air France.

Then Bama got it completed

Rob and Kim were last.

So Bama went to Orly in error; NO!!! I shouted. They thought that the other teams have no idea about Orly, so they may have an advantage; WRONG!

Then Ron and Kim are on the way to Charles de Gaulle and are arguing as usual
They, the boys arrived at Terminal 2C

The first flight is at 8:25a no seats in Economy though; they went on the waiting list, but did buy a ticket on Continental at 9:55a arriving into Newark at 11:55a.

So now Bama is at Orly and find out they have to go to CDG

I wonder what time they arrived as there are pm flights.

Finally Rob and Kim arrived late as it was dark. Rob and Kim asked and they got seats on that 8:25a Air France; I wonder how that happened?

But they could have flown to a connecting city; London and taken a British Airways or Virgin Atlantic late flight into New York. I guess they were not thinking. It is hard as I am not sure what time they arrived at the airport. Even then they could have gone to London and took an early flight the next morning from London to New York and still arrived at the same time as the Air France flight.

The next day, we saw Bama and the boys are waiting to get on the 8:25a flight
Footage showed a Continental 777 taxing a well as an Air France flight.

James and Tyler were called to the desk and got two boarding passes
Bama did not get on and had to take the Continental flight that arrived later, thus sealing their fate.

Rob and Kim had the look of death on their face when they saw the boys boarding…

They then showed a Continental Boeing 777 taking off though although they were on board an Air France aircraft; an Airbus A340 I think.

Then they showed Lyn and Karlyn at the Continental Airlines ticket counter getting their tickets.

Then they showed an Air France Boeing 777 landing, but it was actually landing in Paris Charles de Gaulle, although they were supposed to be in NY.

Then they showed an American Airlines agent opening the door to an American Airlines plane, then showed Rob and Kim running in an airport.

Now Rob and Kim are following James and Tyler to the News Building.

James & Tyler’s cab tried to lose them, but that did not work. At the toll bridge, Rob and Kim’s taxi did not have an easy pass, so they lost them. However, the cabbie did know where the globe was.

James and Tyler arrived their first. The new clue is to go to east village and fine the Alamo sculpture shown in the picture and find a woman in a yellow cap who will give them their next clue. They were at 42nd street and have to go to 8th on foot!

Then Rob and Kim arrived.

They both stopped and asked for directions.

A guy told them that it was at 3rd avenue and 8th street

James and Tyler arrived there first.

Next clue take a cab 56 miles to Garrison in Putnam county to St. Basil Academy where the first to arrive will win 1M dollars.

The first cabbie did not know where the place was.

No sign of Bama at this time.

Then Rob and Kim arrived and found a cabbie that knows where is the address.
The driver got directions as he drove to figure out where to go.

So the cabs arrive and we don’t know who the winners are but I think it is James and Tyler ahead of Rob and Kim.

And so it is they run in and all the other contestants are waiting and cheering them on.

Phil says:

4 continents
13 countries
40,000 miles
James and Tyler you are the official winners of the Amazing race

It is not a two-hour finale at all…

Now Rob and Kim came running in
Saying “Damn the boys won!”
The other racers cheered as they ran in.

Then Bama arrived, not sure how long after in tears.

Next Amazing Race All stars coming in February 2007.

Amaxing Race 10 - Episode 12

Aired Sunday, December 3, 2006

I was out of town, so I missed the episode on Sunday; I tell you Sunday is a really bad day for this show…Luckily two of my friends religiously tape it, so I asked one of them to send it my way. Unfortunately, I missed one of them on his way out of the airport on Monday when I returned. They both uploaded it to my web site so I could watch it. Here goes…

In the review for the show, an Air France A318 was shown taking off from an airport when Phil mentioned the previous week’s Ukraine to Morocco trip. This was the same footage from last week’s show.

They started by showing a quick recap of last week’s show; at that point they had an icon on the screen promoting the finale on Dec. 10. go to, it said. I checked it stupidly, so now I know who got eliminated, but you won’t know until I am done…

First to depart were Tyler and James at 5:30a; the sun was already up so it must have been during the Summertime.
The new task is to drive 275 miles through the Atlas Mountains to Casablanca, Morocco where they have to go to a market to find the next clue.
The plan they echoed was: knock the Blonds out

Next it was Lyn and Karlyn (Bama) who left at 5:31a who also have a plan to get rid of the Blonds.

Next with $295 for this leg (just like the others), Rob and Kim departed at 5:47a. Surprisingly they were not arguing, but it is early yet.

Dustin and Kandice (the Blonds) left last at 6:16a. worrying about the 30 minute penalty that may meet them.

Tyler and James stopped and asked for directions, so did Lyn and Karlyn and Rob jumped out at the light to ask for directions.
The Blonds stopped and picked up a guy who took them there.
James and Tyler arrived first and got their clue.

It is a Road Block: Get in touch with their inner chef; good Lord they have to eat something again?
Get a pound of camel meat, cook it and then eat it. At least it is cooked this time.
James did the eating.

Then the Blonds arrived while Lyn and Karlyn stopped and asked a cab driver whom they then followed. The Blonds were next to find the clue and they found a kid to show them the way. Meanwhile Rob was still asking for directions. The Blonds then showed up and started cooking.

A few minutes after, James finished eating and got the next clue, which was to fly to Barcelona, Spain (BCN). They then showed what looked like an A321 from Air France taking off and then another Airbus aircraft flying; the scene was of the left engine seen outside of an aircraft window.

Iberia, Royal Air Maroc have nonstop service, while Air France has service over Lyon and Paris, France. Alitalia also has service over Milan and Rome, Italy.

The girls continued to cook.
Rob and Kim were still looking for the parking place.

As James and Tyler left, they ran over the parking cones. Rob and Kim were of course lost once more. If they win this race, it will be a miracle and the other teams in the race must have gotten lost as well.

Lyn and Karlyn just arrived and started looking for the place.
Rob and Kim argued while trying to find the place.

Next Dustin and Kandice were done and left. Stupidly Rob and Kim followed the Blonds thinking they had just arrived.

Lyn and Karlyn had no luck either.

Finally Rob sees the clue box and dashes over followed by Lyn and Karlyn.
Kim decided to do the Road Block

James and Tyler were the first to get to the airport and were told to make their way to the Royal Air Maroc ticket counter

Lyn and Karlyn (arguing) finished eating before Rob and Kim, so they headed for the airport.

Then the Blonds arrived at the airport and asked Tyler and James if they would let them arrive at the mat first; of course they said no and rightly so, the audacity.

The boys got their tickets first, followed by the Blonds, then Lyn and Karlyn showed up followed by Rob and Kim. All on AT962 codesharing with Iberia as IB7962 departing at 16:30 (4:30p).

They then showed passengers boarding (by stairs) a Royal Air Maroc (AT) Boeing 737-400 and then showed an Air France (AF) Boeing 777 taking off as Phil narrated the next leg of the journey. Good grief; this was the same aircraft they had shown before and I though it was an Airbus aircraft; but I saw the three truck wheels on the landing gear and recognized it as a Boeing 777.

In Barcelona, they showed an Iberia Airbus A319 landing. As they got out of the terminal, everyone bolted for the taxi stand.

So despite all the rush, they arrived after the closing time of 7:30p, so they had to wait until the opening time at 10:00a the next morning; I swear the producers plan this perfectly…

In the morning just before opening, the Blonds asked two construction workers who were just outside of the maze, to order a cab for them for 10:05a.

Bama were still arguing from the night before and mentioned that maybe they should get a cab as well, but did nothing about it, while Kim ordered two cabs for themselves plus Rob and Tyler.

Rob and Tyler found the clue first after they all pretty much collided while trying to find the clue, then Rob and Kim found the clue.

The next task is a Detour: Lug it – travel by taxi to Los Ramblos then put on a giant costume then walk back to a square and find a giant lady.

Or Lob it - Take a taxi to partake in the tomato fight, where they will find a clue.
Lyn and Karlyn were last to find the clue, but first to get out of the park as they walked another way to get out; smart.

There was a little taxi confusion as there were only enough cabs for the Blonds and Ron and Kim.

Lyn and Karlyn and James and Tyler had a hard time getting a cab; not sure why they did not just ask the guys who were standing around to call one for them?

Soon Lyn and Karlyn hailed a cab successfully.

Rob and Kim arrived at the tomatoes and while they started to look for the clue, the locals threw tomatoes at them, which is the objective of the task. Kim wanted to leave, but Rob wanted to stay, as he pummeled the people throwing the tomatoes. So Kim stormed off and started shouting at Rob, but continued searching reluctantly.

Meanwhile the Blonds found the giant statues and donned them.

Kim continued to cry and quit once more and stormed off; so Rob, annoyed left with her.

So they argued and then returned to the tomatoes as the alternate task was 20 km away and they would waste too much time trying to get there. In what seemed like a few minutes they found the clue after being pelted some more with tomatoes by the locals.

Rob did try to keep her calm as he dug.
The clue read that they had to travel across town to the Palau Nacional of Mont Juic for the next pit stop; the last team may be eliminated. Now they are on their way to the pit stop

Next Lyn and Karlyn arrived and got immediately pelted
Tyler and James arrived at giants and donned their costumes.
They met up with the Blonds and got directions.

Lyn and Karlyn argued about whether to go to the alternate task or not.

The Blonds and the guys kept asking directions as they go.
Now Lyn and Karlyn found the clue and bolted.

Meanwhile Rob and Kim arrived at the pit stop first and won a place into the final three and for the leg won a trip for two to Barbados.

Rob broke down on the mat and says he wants to marry Kim

The Blonds found the tall girl first followed by the boys. Now the race is on to see who gets on the mat first as three teams are in taxis and on their way to the pit stop.

It looked like Rob and Tyler arrived first at the park and then the Blonds, then they looked around to find the mat where Phil is located.

Then Lyn and Karlyn arrived and were the second team to arrive on the mat being the first all female team to make it to the final.

Now the race is on to see if the Blonds are last.
But Tyler and James beat them to it, so the Blonds are out! Mission accomplished for all three teams as they all wanted to beat Dustin and Kandice.

So let’s see how next week goes with these three teams; they are all confident that they will each win, as they should be, but we know that only one team will win.

I am seeing NY taxis in the preview of next week’s show, so it looks like they will be in NY next week. Also, I saw the emblem of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport in one of the scenes, so I can assume they go from Barcelona to Paris to New York, but can’t figure out where they end up as it is in an outdoor park somewhere.

Amazing Race 10 - Episode 11

Aired Sunday, November 26, 2006.

I had arrived home from a five day trip and was very exhausted so I fell asleep and awoke when Rob and Kim had a flat about :35 minutes into the show.

Luckily, I had two of my friends tape the show (thanks guys); one of them called me almost at the end of the show to chat about; he is a big fan of the blonds and I told him my plight.
Later that week I received a copy of the show, so here goes:

As Tyler and James arrived first last week, they were the first team to leave at 7:33 a.m.
Today’s task is to fly to Quarzazate, Morocco (OZZ) which is between the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara desert; I had never heard of that town; good for the Race producers in branching out to out of the way places.

They then showed and Air France A318 taking off when talking about the routing, then showed a Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 landing on a dry runway; not sure where that was.

Next it was Dustin and Kandice to leave at 7:41 a.m.
Once again, Tyler and James were confused while navigating their way to the airport…

Rob and Kim were next at 8:19 a.m.
Rob still had trouble with the car, but made it to the airport anyways.

The blonds were seen at the airport under a Lufthansa sign asking someone about how to get to Morocco; they guy mentioned that they should get to Milan, Italy (MXP) and they will get a connection flight from there. This flight would put them into Casablanca, Morocco (CMN) at 3 p.m., however, the connection in Milan would be very tight. It looks like it was on Ukraine Airlines possibly as that was the sign above the ticket desk.

Of course as Tyler and James were lost, they were the next to arrive at the airport.

When they tried, the seats were sold out from Milan to Casablanca, so the boys were not able to get a ticket. Then the blonds finally told the agent that they were heading to Quarzazate as their final destination; now they had a flight that would get them there at 10:55 p.m. from Casablanca.

It was now Lyn’s and Karlyn’s time to leave at 9:08 a.m., revealing that all the teams were not given any money for this leg of the race. One of them asked what language do they speak in Morocco and the other said Moroccan (it is actually a few languages, the main ones of which are: Arabic, Spanish in the North due to its proximity to Spain and French due to the strong French presences in the early 1900s)…

Rob and Kim caught up the laxed Tyler and James and teamed up to get a flight via Paris that arrives in Casablanca at 4:35 p.m. This would be on Air France it seems as the cameras panned to an Air France logo. They would still connect to that same flight the blonds would be on to Quarzazate.

So for the two routings:
Ukraine International to Milan, Italy (MXP)
Then Ukraine International once again to Casablanca, Morocco (CMH)
Then Alitalia to Quarzazate, Morocco (OZZ)

Route 2

Air France to Paris-Charles de Gaulle, France (CDG)
Then Air France once again to Casablanca, Morocco (CMH)
Then Royal Air Moroc to Quarzazate, Morocco (OZZ)

They then showed Dustin and Kandice inside a single aisle aircraft; it is a Boeing aircraft by the looks of the overhead bins. Then they showed an overhead shot of a Boeing 747-400 taking off saying that Dustin and Kandice were heading for Casablanca via Milan, Italy.

Next Lyn and Karlyn arrived at the Air France counter and got a flight to Paris, but it connected to a later flight that would arrive in Casablanca at 10 p.m. They would connect to the same 10:55 p.m. flight to Quarzazate; I really hate when they all get caught up, but I think the producers do that as it makes for easier filming…

They did show Tyler and James in an Air France aircraft (had Air France colored seats) and showed that same Airbus A318 taking off as they did at the beginning of the show.
Then they showed a map of them going from Kiev to Paris then to Casablanca.

Next they showed a Ukraine International Boeing 737-500 landing and then possibly the same aircraft at the hard stand in Milan, Italy at 11:45 a.m.
The girls hauled ass to make the connection, but the lady at the connection counter said the flight was closed as they were within the 25 minutes of departure. The girls were not too happy about this and wandered off to try and find another flight.

Then they showed an Air France Boeing 777-200 landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, France (CDG) at 1:20 p.m. [Actually, Air France does not operate the Boeing 777 from Kiev to Paris] I guess the camera guy is an engine buff as he showed a Boeing 747 engine running up close as Phil narrated.

They then showed Rob and Kim, James and Tyler walking in the airport and then on a single aisle airplane heading for Morocco. They then showed a Boeing 777 taking off again; possibly an Air France jet as it was all white.

While Lyn and Karlyn waited for their flight in Paris, (they had a 3 hour connection) they bought a map of Morocco so they could get the lay of the land; good move on their part I think.

They then showed a plane landing at an airport which they said was Casablanca, Morocco at 4:35 p.m. It was hard to tell which aircraft it was as it was shown through the heat wave from the runway. It actually looked like a Boeing aircraft; twin engine and possibly in Royal Air Moroc colors.

Then we next saw all four of them get tickets from Royal Air Moroc’s ticket counter for Quarzazate and asking where were the blonds.

Then they showed a twin-engine aircraft landing in Casablanca, Morocco at 10:00 p.m. it was an Airbus aircraft, but I could not tell which one. It was either, an A318, A319 or an A320; Lyn and Karlyn were onboard.

Then they showed an aircraft landing at an airport and then they showed the blonds walking up an escalator and checking in for their flight to Quarzazate; it sucks that they did not show us which flight they got on in Milan…

The aircraft was a 3-3 configuration aircraft and the interior looked like an Airbus aircraft, based on the overhead bins, but I think it was a Boeing 737.

Then they showed a twin-engine aircraft taking off as Phil narrated the map showing them going from Casablanca to Quarzazate; I am assuming it was on Royal Air Moroc.
Then the same Airbus aircraft that was shown before landing was shown again landing; this time I noticed the runway markings 25L-7R; this runway is not Quarzazate as the lone runway there is 12-30.

The blonds were able to sneak out of the airport and hired a cab so they could follow them to the next stop on the race; the others were annoyed; but why? it is a race, why should the blonds tell them what they are up to.
Lyn and Karlyn were following their map and were the first to find the clue:
Travel 6 miles to Atlas Studios for their next clue
Careful, there is a Yield ahead…
The blonds still waited for directions and James and Tyler waited as Lyn and Karlyn got some guy in a car that helped them.

All the teams got a local guy to show them where to go.

Rob and Kim were second, then Tyler and James and lastly the blonds as the guy took them to the wrong place. So now the race is on to see who first gets to the Yield.

Lyn and Karlyn got there first, but it was closed until 8 a.m. the next day; when the others arrived they could not believe that the Alabama girls had arrived first. Now they all waited for the gate to open.

James and Tyler were first to make it the mad short run to the Yield, Rob and Kim second, The blonds were third and finally Lyn and Karlyn lumbered in. The blonds chose to Yield the Alabama girls!

The next clue was a road block: Play Gladiator and collect a flag as you race around the course twice.
Rob chose the task
Dustin chose the task and so did James
James’ horses freaked out and kind of ran in the wrong direction for a bit.

Dustin got the first flag, then Rob then James missed his flag…
Meanwhile the Bama girls waited for the Yield time to run out
Dustin then grabbed her second flag and so did Rob
Now James got his first flag

Next clue drive to Idelssan for their next clue

Rob and Kim were first off followed by Dustin and Kandice
James finally got his second flag and now Bama girls were just finishing having waited for the yield time to run out.

James and Tyler were the next to leave for the café in Idelssan
Rob and Kim developed a flat so they had to stop to change it, but they did not have a jack; when he found it, he could not get it out. Someone stopped and helped them

James and Tyler were the first to get to the café; the new clue is to
Throw It: throw two clay pots
Grind It: go to a horse ranch grind olives and fill a pressing sleeve
Only three workstations available

The blonds did the Grind It; while James and Tyler decided to do the Throw It, but changed their minds as they thought it was too hard.
Lyn and Karlyn decided to do Grind It as throwing a pot is too difficult
By now Rob and Kim’s tire were almost finished changing
James and Tyler gave them some information to help them to find the place; the blonds jetted by.
Rob and Kim decided to do the Grind It as well.

Tyler and James were the first to find the North African Horse which is where the next task was, then Lyn & Karlyn; meanwhile the blonds passed it.
Rob and Kim were next to arrive at the Horse, then finally the blonds. They now had to wait as there were only three machines.

James and Tyler was the next to finish; the clue is to drive to the next pit stop which will be off the road to Marrakech; someone may be eliminated it cautioned.

Lyn and Karlyn were the next to depart
Then Rob and Kim finished
Finally the blonds; now the race is on for the first to arrive at the pit stop and it is James and Tyler, who turned back a bit to get their good luck charm as they had forgotten it in the car.

So James and Tyler were team number 1
They won a Sprint Treo phone each
Then Lyn and Karlyn checked in as team #2 although they got yielded

Of course Rob and Kim asked for directions but the blonds we still looking as well
Rob and Kim found the race flag but had trouble finding the place where Phil was, but was still able to be team #3; so will the blonds get eliminated?

So Dustin and Kandice were the last team to arrive, but were not eliminated as the round is a non-elimination round. So they must arrive first for the next leg as they will get a 30 minute penalty and be eliminated.

The race is on, and next week someone will be eliminated I’m sure…
