Oh Cowboys, this is what happens when I have faith in you and call you out as the next winner of the Amazing Race. You fumble through what luckily for you (and obviously to the viewers from the beginning) was a non-elimination leg of the race. I had been setting you outside my grouping of “Dumb Teams” on this Amazing Race (hence me picking you to win) but no more! You are officially in the running this all dumb season of the Amazing Race.
So, our adorable Cowboys missed every opportunity from beginning to end on this race. First they decided to have breakfast at the airport rather than secure seats close to the front (even the brothers and Caite and Brent figured out that sitting at the front was going to important on an equalizing flight). Then, when they got to the next task they dropped a coconut (even though you both plainly said ‘make sure we didn’t drop a coconut’). Then they went back for it and luckily the lesbians had made the same mistake and also had to go back so that put the Cowboys second to last. They got through the swimming detour no problem, but left there clue on the boat. So, when they hit the pit stop they had to turn back and that put the lesbians ahead of them. It was a non-elimination leg and they are safe until next week.
Now, I do have faith that these two can pull off a comeback, but only if they stop taking their stupid pills next week. And luckily for the cowboys everyone seems to be taking stupid pills lately. While Allie and her dad won the leg they lost their backpacks. They left them at the detour and decided to not go back for them. Did you see the look on Phils face when they told him? I’m betting next week we fly to Antartica—that tank top and shorts won’t be cute then! Caite and Brent and the lesbians also missed a coconut and had to turn back this week. It was funny and sad all at the same time to Caite and Brent mess up yet another challenge—after they said they had to be more thorough. Then to top it all off for the night, Phil asked the detectives and Caite and Brent who they would like to see eliminated. Both said the lesbians and then Brent said “Among the teams, it’s pretty anonymous.” Yeah, he said that, but really folks he’s smarter than he looks 🙂
So tune in next week to see who can do the dumbest possible thing in the shortest amount of time!
