Go to CBS.com to see why I thought this was the funniest episode this season. Its called "I'm Like an Angry Cow" for a reason. If you want to know how to look really foolish put on this costume and sorry don't have a picture to present.
The order in which teams left the pit stop:
- Nick & Starr (siblings) - 10:14 pm
- Toni & Dallas (mom/son) - 10:24 pm
- Terence & Sarah - 10:43 pm
- Ken & Tina -11:48 pm
- Andrew & Dan - 12:00 am
Clue: Fly to Almaty, Kazakhstan and take a taxi to a Chicken Factory for their next clue.
Road Block: One team member had to search among 30,000 chickens to find one of seven golden eggs.
I laughed so hard watching them try and get through the chickens. I'm a farm gal this would have been so easy for me.
The clue also came with a Fast Forward, the second of only two on the entire race. The first team to make it to the Fast Forward and completes it, can skip all other tasks and go straight to the pit stop.
Fast Forward: Teams would need to indulge in a local Kazakhstan delicacy. What they didn't know until they arrived was the delicacy was the fat from the rear end of a sheep. Both team members would have to finish their serving to receive the fast forward reward.
I would not have gone for the fast forward seeing Nick and Starr went for it. Its the quickest way to pick the eliminated team.
Clue: They needed to find the giant crane trucks on the grounds and take one of them to Koktobe Arch, at the foothills of the Teinshan Mountains, where they would follow the marked path to the Mongol Warriors. The warrior would lead them to their next clue.
I am going to surprise you and not tell you team names, so it will be a surprise to eliminated team.
Team ? arrived at the Arch where they found the Mongol warriors who brought them up the hill. They had to wait there while a hawk flew over to bring them their next clue, which was a detour. I thought this was very cool to watch.
Detour: In Play Like Mad, they had to travel to the Museum of Folk Musical Instruments where they would have to learn a simple Kazakhstan folk song on two traditional instruments. When the instructor thought they learned the tune well enough, they would go to a nearby park and play for tips. They would have to earn the equivalent of $1.50 to get their next clue. In Act Like Fools, teams had to go to a children's puppet theater, find the wardrobe department and put on a two-person cow costume. They would have to walk the streets as the cow to find a marked stall and drink a class of milk. At the bottom of the milk, it would direct them to go to a nearby bazaar and deliver themselves to the butcher to get their next clue.
The teams put on the cow costume it was so funny that I laughed so hard I cried. Imagine a grown person mooing down the street and the people watching were having a great time.
The siblings arrived at the pit stop where they both won a wave runner. No surprise 5 wins for them, but I think they can be beat................... The big money could make another team really push harder to work together better.
Next Clue: Teams had to make their way on foot through the city to find the Old Square, which was the pit stop. It said teams should bring their cow head to the mat.
Keep in mind it says on foot you already guessed one team had to go back, as they took a taxi Andrew & Dan, but they still didn't lose, as Terence & Sarah tried to challenge the siblings eating meat.
The order the teams arrived at the pit stop:
- Nick & Starr (siblings)
- Toni & Dallas (mom/son)
- Ken & Tina
- Dan & Andrew
- Terence & Sarah Eliminated
The fast forward - Terence started freaking out because it was meat and he is a vegetarian. Why would a vegetarian go to an eating challenge if he had the choice to avoid it? He was telling Sarah he couldn't eat it. Terence and Sarah should have left right away instead of Sarah starting to eat it.
I think this will go down as the worse season with more teams that can't use common sense. I have enjoyed seeing the countries, but think The Amazing Race needs to pick teams better in the future.
