This week was rather interesting, but the usual “everybody catches up to everyone else” scenario played out. Despite head starts and varying arrival times on flights from India to Kazakhstan, the couples all ended up waiting for a chicken farm to open as one after another caught up.
Once the farm opened, two teams had the option of a “fast forward”. The two teams that grabbed the chance were Nick & Star and Terence & Sarah. Unfortunately for Terence, they would be subjected to eating a horrible concoction of sheep parts and he is a vegetarian. This was a gargantuan error. He could not finish the meat and the team had to return to the beginning.
Those that didn’t take the shortcut had to find a golden egg in a stinky house of thousands of chickens. But they all mustered it one at a time.
They then had to dress as cows and walk through the city and drink milk out of a glass at a milk stand. On the bottom of the glass was information as to where to find the next clue.
Ken & Tina made the milk stall first and were in great shape to finish 2nd at least, and Tina downed the milk. But they then made a major blunder. They didn’t read the directions they had been given that told them the clue was on the bottom of the glass. When Tina finished, she thought there would be an envelope, but there was no envelope (because the clue was on the bottom of the glass) so off they went searching for another milk bar thinking they had the wrong one.
Toni and Dallas were next and drank their milk and READ THE DIRECTIONS, so saw the clue on the bottom of the glass.
Ken & Tina had to loop back and get the milk clue and fell behind a bit. But they were still ahead of the Frat Boys and Terence the vegetarian with Sarah.
They were supposed to walk to the meat market in the costume and get some meat. But once again, Ken & Tina did not read the instructions and returned the costume first. They were supposed to wear the costume to the meat market.
As Toni & Dallas retrieved their meat, and departed for the final stop, they saw Ken & Tina and told them they had to wear the outfit. Ken & Tina had to circle back once again and get their cow outfit again.
Toni & Dallas went on to the final stop. Ken & Tina got their meat next. The Frat boys in the meantime got their cow outfit and scampered around looking for the milk shop.
Terence and Sarah got their cow outfit and started their search, but were solidly in last place thanks to Terence’s preference for vegetables. The Frat boys made it, got their milk and their meat and looked in good shape, but didn’t read THEIR instructions. They were supposed to walk to their final destination and instead took a cab. They reached the finish but were forced to walk back on foot to the milk stand and come back. This added suspense as Terence & Sarah got their milk and meat and followed their instructions to a T.
The teams finished in this order, and note number 1…again! Nick & Star were done before many others even got started with their Cow costumes.
1. Nick & Star
2. Toni & Dallas
3. Ken & Tina
4. Andrew & Dan
5. Terence & Sarah
Terence & Sarah are done. They were eliminated. Terence could not eat the meat concoction, and had he been able to, they would not have been eliminated. The mistake was choosing to take the short cut and eat the food. You can’t be picky about what this show will throw at you in a short cut!! It would be the most costly mistake of his life. Doubling back cost them the race. Down to 4 teams now.
