The Amazing Race 4, Episode 5: Diggin’ In Poo for a CluePage 3
View Printable version of this article
The Supremes are laughing in the poo as they find the clue. Reichen & Chip finish their detour as well as the people on the street go wild with excitement for them. Jon & Al at this point find the Smoker Statue and find their roadblock task there. The person that chooses to do the roadblock will have to pick up 25 eels with their bare hands and put them in a container. The clue says the person that does the task must have a firm grip and like seafood. Al does the roadblock while Jon cheers him on wildly. Hey, remember Chillie? Well, they check in as team number one while all this is going on. Not only that, but they win a seven-night cruise on Royal Caribbean for coming in first for this leg. Millie states, regarding the map, that Chuck has trust issues and in interview Chuck says that trust issues to Millie means he doesn’t do exactly what she says. Millie shakes her head. Good for you Chuck, growing a backbone!
Al finishes up the roadblock and they are off to the pit stop. After leaving the poo, Monica & Sheree try to make a U-Turn and end up getting their car stuck in the mud. I think it’s all over for them, but just then a van comes along and pulls them out. Thank God! I would collapse in sheer horror if they were eliminated. They are such strong, independent women! Jon & Kelly get to the roadblock and Jon does it, while comparing the eels to a slippery penis when Kelly asks what it feels like. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to laugh or cringe at that one! He finishes it really quickly with Kelly rooting him on. They get their clue and head for the pit stop. The Clowns check in second at this point and look pleased as punch. I like these two. Meanwhile, the Models are fighting again as they look for the poo pile. Steve & Dave start with their cheese detour and say they look pretty stupid. They are moving ever so slow, as usual. Kelly & Jon check in third. Wow, look at my favorites, rising in the ranks!
Reichen & Chip get to the roadblock the same time The Supremes do. Reichen and Sheree start the roadblock and finish pretty much at the same time. The Supremes ask Reichen & Chip if they can follow. Reichen says that the only team they trust are The Supremes and they allow them to follow. I really like both of these teams. Believe it or not, the Models are STILL fighting! Dave & Jeff find the clue in the poo and on their way out, see the Models just getting there. Dave & Steve finish up with the cheese just when the Models find the poo clue. At the pit stop, Reichen & Chip check in as team number four and The Supremes are right behind them and check in as team number five.
Dave & Jeff get to the roadblock and Dave does it. They finish and are off. The Models are behind them and Jaree finally does a roadblock. Tian looks disgusted as Jaree does the task, but they are out fairly quick as well. Steve & Dave get there last and Steve handles the eels. They also finish up pretty fast and head to the pit stop. Dave & Jeff get to the pit stop and find out they are in sixth. I’m glad we got to see more of them this episode. I finally know which one is which and a little more insight into their team morale! Hopefully, we will see more in the future. Anyway, the last two teams are on their way to the pit stop. Jaree isn’t sure if she wants to be eliminated or not. Tian looks pretty pissed and says Jaree keeps trying to sabotage them. Steve & Dave are strolling along as usual, saying they refuse to quit. As it gets dark, who gets there first? The Models! They find out they are team number seven and I’m not sure if they are happy or not! They look relieved, but both state they thought they were last. Shortly after, Dave & Steve get to the pit stop and are informed by Phil that they are the last team to arrive and they have been eliminated. I think they should give the trip to the eliminated team, that way they feel good about themselves. Dave says he is keeping the cheese from the roadblock, no matter what Phil says! He also states that he misses his wife as he gets a tear in his eye. Steve says they did well for two old farts, experience of a lifetime, yadda, yadda, yadda.
Next week, looks like TAR is headed back to India, the first time since the first season! Things get a little crazy as teams are faced with the poverty that people there have to endure. Then, a frustrating roadblock and hectic train ride make tensions rise. All we hear is one of the Models (Tian, I think) say, “Don’t touch my boob!” That was probably the first time she ever discouraged someone from touching them. I’ll wait until next week to crack on that one some more.
Some final thoughts from me: First off, it’s about time Steve & Dave bit the dust. I said they would be one of the first three teams eliminated, along with Weezer & Geezer and Chillie. Well, two of them are out before midway, so I’m not doing so badly. All three teams I picked for the finals are still there! Second, I love the following teams: Kelly & Jon, The Supremes, and Reichen & Chip. I like these teams: The Clowns, Dave & Jeff, and just Jaree from the Models. I’m not fond of the following: Chillie, Tian. It’s a shame too, I really liked Tian last week, but she did a complete turnaround. We’ll have to see next week as the teams race through India if she can redeem herself. One last comment: I love Kelly!
