Another week gone but Charla & Mirna linger on. Lovely. I’m definitely less than thrilled with that outcome. Ah well, it’s like the Weavers Part Deux, and I’ll just have to grin, bear it, and yell at my television set.
At elimination station, we see a brief clip of Joe & Bill talking with Ian, and then we have the table, and there is discussion about how some people shouldn’t be allowed to win, like the Beauty Queens. It’s Kevin pointing out to Drew how flawed his logic is. Drew is all like ‘they don’t deserve to win, because they won something already,’ and Amber jumps in to point out she won Survivor, so by that logic, Drew wouldn’t want her to win either. He disagrees, because he likes Amber. Nice. Pardon me while I eyeroll a bit.
The phone rings, and it is Uchenna & Joyce. The others were not expecting to hear their voices. Uchenna explains their big error, then asks if Rob can hear them. Rob is passed out, they quip, but Amber takes the phone and says that Rob had picked them to win. Uchenna says “win by a plane, lose by a plane” which is actually way too true for them. Uchenna says they’re a good crowd. Ian is glad Eric & Danielle are still in it. Ick. Amber says it just proves that anyone can win this race.
Pit Stop Cam
None for this week. Bummer.
Dustin & Kandice: Phil asks what they think of his shirt. They like it, and they say it looks good with the building. Phil brings up the all female team thing again, and he states it’s looking good. They agree, but say that each leg has its own trauma and challenges. Phil needs to hear it and see it in their eyes. They say they really feel in their bones that they’ll be in the final three. He reminds them about last time. Dustin says it would be devastating to get out on this next leg since it was the last one they got out on. Phil tells them not to let it happen. Kandice says they’re going to try. Dustin says they are a very well-rounded team, and Kandice cites their determination. Phil asks if they want it more than the other teams. She feels like they are in the top couple teams. Phil pulls out some wipe thing and sticks it to his forehead and gives one to each girl as well, but the beautiful woman on the mat isn’t sweating at all. Dustin asks what a retro scooter is again. Phil explains, and they’re excited it’s not a Vespa. Phil says guys dig girls on retro scooters, and that they did it just for the girls to give them that. Dustin makes some joke about world peace, obviously a beauty queen mock, and I love it. Too cute.
Charla & Mirna: Phil asks them what other teams they would like to see in the final three with them, using their smarts. Mirna says Eric & Dani and Charla says Oswald & Danny, and Mirna thinks a toss up between them and Uchenna & Joyce. Phil asks who they want to see go home. Charla figures it’s a non-elimination leg. Mirna says they calculated. Then she whines about how she hasn’t been lucky enough to be non-eliminated and come in last. And when people see them, they think it’s all luck that they make it each leg. Oh yes, poor misunderstood Mirna.
Mirna says that her flight was delayed 3 hours in last race and that’s the only reason they came in sixth. Charla explains that this challenge she couldn’t do those bikes, would have had to use a kids bike or something. Charla says the world doesn’t change for her needs, she deals with it every day, and she could push it if she needed to, but Mirna could push it, so let her. See, this sort of talk is when Charla comes across like a relatively normal human being, versus the obviously psychotic Mirna who never really comes off that way.
Did I mention I would have been twenty when I graduated from college if I hadn’t gotten married and taken a few years off? Putting me at 22 if I’d gone the law route. Suck that, Mirna.
Phil says that they thought they’d have come in first by hours this leg, but got stuck with the cookies. Phil asks why people underestimate them. Mirna says we overestimate them. They just need to get to know us. If you judge a book by its cover, you won’t get to know us.
Honestly, yes, they do work airports well, and I hate that because I want these obnoxious people gone. They are SO preachy and pretentious. Actually, Charla seems like she’d be okay away from Mirna most the time. Mirna is preaching some about how you can do anything and race is all about that, etc, and I really just hear the “adults talking” noise from Peanuts specials.
Eric & Danielle: Danielle says they talked about the Yield, and they figured the girls wouldn’t have used it. Phil asks if that makes it all out war. Eric agrees, and he’s happy to be back in at third. Phil says the girls are pretty strong. Eric says unless they hire taxis and follow people, the blondes get lost. He mentions the dumb mistakes they’ve made too, and he hopes it catches up with them. Phil asks about Charla & Mirna and the airplane. Eric whines about the internet incident, which was just competition. Danielle talks about how you couldn’t be too friendly this close to the end and that’s a new feeling for her. Phil says that at the beginning, he got the impression that she didn’t believe she could run all these legs. She agrees. Eric also thinks they wouldn’t have done as well since he’s used to Jeremy. Must. Not. Comment. He says they’ve been so down with how behind they’ve been, and they definitely hope they’ll be in final three. They want Uchenna & Joyce out because they won. Phil asks if they still feel that way considering that Uchenna and Joyce are tough competitors. They don’t care, as long as they’re there.1 2 3 Next-->
