The Amazing Race All-Stars: "I'm Sorry I'm Wearing a Bathing Suit. It is Very Weird, I know."
The teams remained in Chile this week. Things went from tense (thanks to Mirna) to hilarious (thanks to Rob) throughout the episode. I think my favorite team so far is Rob & Amber just because they're so laid back. Everyone else is taking this waaay too seriously.
Spoilers after the jump:
Rob & Amber : The difference between this team and the others is their ability to stay calm. As much as it is annoying that Rob and Amber live in front of reality television cameras, they make a great team. They're very supportive of each other and Amber is totally up for anything. Nothing ruffles that girl's feathers. Not surprisingly, these two placed first... again.
Uchenna & Joyce : Not much of these two this episode. I felt terrible for Joyce when she had to tell the other teams that she couldn't get any tickets for them.
Oswald & Danny : Not much of these two, either. I think their fitness level may be a problem later in the season because they sure are winded during challenges!
David & Mary [ELIMINATED]: How funny was Dave in the fish tank? He's a rough guy who can work deep in a coal mine, but touching fish creeps him out?!? It was sad to see these two get kicked off the show, but I think we all know they aren't so great at this race. They needed the other teams last season to stay in so long. Bummer, really, because they are a kick to watch.
Charla & Mirna : Dammit! I want these two to lose so badly! Mirna is such a hypocrite! She bitched out the beauty queens last week for following them to a location, but she can bust in on someone in line at the ticket counter? Oh, I don't think so. Once again, Mirna panicked during the Road Block challenge when she had to gather fish. That's karma, baby. She deserved a nightmare task for trying to butt in front of another team.
Teri & Ian : These two have finally engaged. Wasn't it fun to see Teri's claws come out when Mirna tried to butt in on their line in Santiago? Poor Teri fell out of the raft during the Detour, giving poor Ian a heart attack. You could hear the panic in his voice when he realized she fell out. It was only for a second though because this girl rocks and she held on to the outside of the raft.
Eric & Danielle : Finally! The inevitable breakdown for the dating couple. It happened when Danielle was scared to death of fish during a Road Block. Eric was not at all helpful and shame on him for yelling at her. He definitely made things worse by freaking her out.
Joe & Bill : Okay, what was with the matching black shirts and necklaces during the testimonials? These two--so far--are along for comic relief. They had me laughing out loud when one of them (not sure which one) stood in front of Eric & Danielle's car when they stole the guys' directions and cut them off.
Dustin & Kandice : Game on! The beauty queens really found their strike during this episode during the fish-wrangling Road Block. I'm not sure why they decided to align with Teri & Ian (and I'm not sure how strong that alliance will be). Missing the clue for the Detour could've been fatal for them, but they quickly figured out their mistake. And their mistake screwed up another team when they saw the girls going the other way! It looks like things may finally be turning around for Dustin & Kandice.
Next week: Charla versus Amber. I'm betting on Charla.
