The cowboys pulled off another win tonight. Last week I counted it based on luck, this week, I gotta go with a little more luck. The cowboys fell a little behind on the first task of playing five card draw with the roaming gnome, but managed to surge ahead when the next task was roping a steer/bail of hay. It took the cowboys two tries (for shame) but once they went ahead they stayed ahead and made no blunders along the way. I do have to give them props for making sure they complete the clue thoroughly, these boys know how the game works. I’m still not ready to call them ultimate winners, if next week is another number one finish I will call that, but I feel like a major blunder is headed their way.
Second place tonight went to Steve and Allie. Oh, you don’t know who that is, neither does CBS or the Amazing Race. We have seen them for all of ten seconds total in all the episodes combined. They are the father/daughter team and they must be really boring. We saw Steve fall down last night and tell us he is 57 so everything hurt and then we did not see them again until they hit the mat in second. Phil didn’t even ask them how it felt to move up the ranks so quickly he just congratulated them and sent them on their way. The picture above is only one on the CBS website of Steve from last nights episode, there wasn’t one of Allie.
Our Jackass of the night has to go to Joe. One of the detours was to follow an old west compass to find a bag of gold. Joe decides that since he has a compass on his watch he does not need to follow the rules. He picks a random spot and starts walking. Heidi tells him they need to count steps and he tells her that is only for people who don’t have compasses! Of course he can’t do it and has to go to the other task.
Our losers eliminated team of the night were the “mompreneurs”. They were capable of completing all the tasks, they just were not very good at completing them. Not a bad team, not a good team, and I actually thought they would make it a couple more episodes. Oh well, on to next week.
