The Amazing Race - Season 13 - Episode 3

The teams are in Brazil but is the surrounding poverty the big issue no it is about a sports bra being "pushed" off a window ledge.

Christy accuses Starr of pushing it off? I tend to tend to agree with Starr what was the point of that it is not like the bra will give them an advantage in the race. Now if you could spike someones drink with laxatives that might get you ahead.

Ken and Tina, the estranged married couple are first to leave the pit stop at 12.51am. They have to fly to La Paz, Boliva, and must get to a statue and look through a newspaper to find their next clue.

The geeks are second to go. I love these guys.

Everyone got on flights to Boliva and were trying to cope with the altitude as well as sleeping on concrete on a freezing cold night.

The frat boys were the first to discover the clue hidden in the newspaper. The blondes were the last to find it - but did run a strong rest of the leg.

After getting to the hat store to buy a traditional Bolivian hat it was time for the detour.

The choices were Musical March - where you must collect musicians to form a band
Bumpy Ride where you must get on some dodgy bike and travel on some bumpy ride. At the end of this detour they have a U-Turn where they can make another team do both detours.

Terence and Sarah and the geeks stuffed up and hopped into cabs when the clue specifically said you had to travel on foot. Do you go back or just cop the time penalty at the pit stop?

Points to Tina who overtook Terence and Sarah on the bumpy bike ride. Terence nearly had a breakdown and made a crack at Sarah.

Nick and Starr flew past Kelly and Christy on the bikes this humiliation was compounded by a huge stack, which meant Nick and Starr got to the U-Turn first. Starr really wanted to U-Turn the girls but then strategy wise decided not to.

Next was to get to Los Titines and the Geeks were in first place - they had not realised their mistake at this stage.

Tina and Ken made it to the Roadblock first. Where they had to wrestling a cholita (a woman). And were off to the pit stop first for the second week in a row.

Terence and Sarah hopped out at the wrong spot when they spotted a red and yellow flag, and Aja and Ty had taxi issues with no petrol and overheating.

The geeks had trouble with the wrestling due to lack of coordination and fitness resulted in sucking on oxygen. It was getting ugly for him.

Aja took the time at the roadblock to make mischief by telling Kelly and Christy that Starr had wanted Aja and Ty to U-Turn them. There is going to be a scrag fight at the pitstop tonight.

Toni and Dallas overtook a few teams to go for the pit stop second, and the blondes came in fourth after Terence and Sarah who had a great cab driver.

At this point the geeks realised they had fucked up and their necks were on the chopping block, and they copped a 30 minute penalty. The divorcees were now saved from elimination and the geeks were going home, even Phil looked disappointed as was I.

Buddy TV here has an interview with Mark and Bill about their time on the amazing race.

I was so disappointed to see the geeks go! I've never wished so hard for a non-elimination round. I got a bit confused with the Starr-Ty U-turn conspiracy - did Starr ask Ty to put the divorcees back or was that Ty stirring trouble? I think there'll be further repurcussions from bra-gate!
