The Wonderful Race Recap: Mega Leg Insanity – Double Detours and Roadblocks Ship One other Duo Bundle
Nothing could have prepared the remaining Amazing Race teams for this.
Wednesday's two-hour showdown raised the heat like never before, introducing the series' first mega-leg, which kept teams busy with double detours, roadblocks and distance. While everyone reached their limit on this brutal Indian adventure, not one but two proceeds were used to get some teams to the top and destroy another. Which duos had blood on their hands and who was ultimately eliminated? Let's take it from above.
AND YOU ARE OUT | The teams' next destination: Hyderabad, India. Hung and Chee tell us they can't help DeAngelo and Gary anymore, but the footballers are still betting on Allianz's safety. Meanwhile, Eswar and Aparna, who were born in India before moving to the United States as children, are fairly confident that they may have the advantage in this case. The brother / sister combo finds their clue first and learns that they need to smog test three rickshaws before moving on. In addition to tagging the rickshaws from the road, the teams must enter the vehicle details and test the emissions in the hopes of getting approval from a smog technician.
DETOUR | Eswar and Aparna finish first and then have to choose whether to deliver food orders or solve a number puzzle. Since the siblings are both software engineers, they choose numbers and are followed by Will and James and the soccer players. "This challenge was meant for us," says Aparna, but does she speak too soon?
On the way to the detour, Riley and Maddison take out their frustration on DeAngelo. “There was a lot of mutual help in our alliance with Chee, Hung and the friends. While there was a lot of take, take, take with DeAngelo … they almost withheld information that could possibly help us.” As Chee and Hung seem these two get over it and refuse to help the footballers in the future.
When the volleyball players make the detour, the soccer players are done and … how the hell are Kaylynn and Haley lost again! How is it possible that everyone. Single. Taxi drivers who catch them no matter what country they are in have no idea where to go? It was a tough race for these two.
The friends crack the code first and get the next clue. At the next marker, the teams have the opportunity to use their proceeds, and the boys pull the trigger on the sisters who are still driving aimlessly in circles somewhere. (Was this a waste of a return? Why not pull the trigger on a bigger threat such as the soccer player?)
ROAD BLOCK | Teams have to use an augmented reality interface to travel through a digital world and find three different turbans. Then they have to find real men wearing the same headdress. Eswar and Aparna, along with Gary and DeAngelo, begin the roadblock, while the blonde bandits Hung and Chee (who take detours) join in delivering groceries.
The two pairs of athletes destroy the roadblock and are gone, but Hung and Chee deliver and catch up with the pack. The first lesson ends with the sisters finding out that they are 20 minutes late. Since this is a mega-leg, we continue to roll to: another detour!
DETOUR | This hint cannot be more vague: "This or that." Okaaay. For "This", racers must push a cart with wristbands into a nearby store and find the same set that a bride is wearing.
Eswar and Aparna choose "That" which requires teams to make molds of dentures and then polish another pair to fit a patient's mouth. (Real talk: this is far from gross, and I'd be out as soon as possible!) While Chee and Hung bite on "That," the footballers and friends continue their hunt for needles in the haystack.
Riley and Maddison stop and arrive at a palace where they hop a horse and carriage with some local celebrities. On the second Yield Op des Legs, they target Kaylynn and Haley in hopes of giving their struggling Alliance members Hung and Chee extra time.
ROADBLOCK | Teams have to recreate place settings – including a fancy folded napkin – on the palace's 30-meter dining table. The items must be arranged to the nearest centimeter in order to pass the task. The volleyball players and friends decide not to reveal the point of the ruler to Gary. "Now it's the Final 3 alliance with the Beards, and Hung and Chee will be coming more forward," says James. "Mine 5 is officially dead as of today."
The sisters finally finish their prosthesis and on the way out they say to the camera: "If someone else gives in to us, I'll slaughter them!" Puppy …
BOX STOP | Riley and Maddison are the first to finish that super-ultra-mega-leg and land on Phil's mat. You win a trip for two on a seven-day Caribbean cruise! Will and James take second place, while Gary and DeAngelo take third place. Despite her lucky streak this season, she actually ran out: Kaylynn and Haley were the last to arrive and were eliminated from the race.
