Sorry that you had to learn it on national TV Amanda but nice guys finish last.
The sleep deprivation and stress are starting to show. The gloves are coming off & the race is getting interesting now!!
Cool - Trans-Siberian railway.
I wonder if there is merit to Christie's consonant:temperature theory?
I'm sure that there are beautiful areas of Russia, but that street looks like downtown Toronto in December. Decidedly not beautiful.
That has got to be a 1st - The Gospel of TAR.
I'm sure that Kisha has trouble finding a bed long enough more often than not.
Again Luke with that sense of humour!
Mel is quite the comedian too - "I'll just keep limping so that he doesn't U-Turn me"!
I'm liking Cara & Jamie more each race - they're more genuine that I initially gave them credit for.
Stunt skills aside, running maniacally through foreign streets is more foolhardy than strategy.
You forget how nice we have it with our anti-smoking regulations until you see how it used to be.
Russian Bride or Russian Snowplow
Yeah, negotiating Russian streets doesn't sound like much fun.
Snowplow - big machine, how hard can that be to drive?!
I had a friend in high school who had a green Lada. We (mostly) lovingly called it a Snot-da.
Lawyers & sharks - don't be swimming with them.
If Victor thinks that a casual wave of the hand and a will cut it I think that he's sorely mistaken.
I hope that the cheerleaders will catch up with Margie & Luke.
Pick a plow that's in a LANE!!!
Asking drunk men in any city is asking for mischief.
Alright Luke, show her how it's done.
The bride detour doesn't seem as challenging as it could have been.
Geez - that's a mouthful!!!
The Lawyers, Cheerleaders & Margie & Luke did awesome with the snowplows.
Nobody driving the plows seemed to take direction from their partner very well.
Although picking the "pretty church" could've worked.
That poor bride is not dressed for wandering around outside.
And she looks terrified like she's being held hostage crazy blondes instead of being escorted to her groom.
Ice? In Siberia? Who'da thunk it?
Way to get local Phil!!
As long as you keep moving you won't feel the cold.
Luke is totally into it!
-3 - that's not so bad. Relatively speaking.
Good on Kisha & Jen - they've delivered their bride.
This is a pretty church too. Christie & Jodi are off to the library.
No worries Luke, it's not like you're going to actually meet anyone that you know there.
Jamie!!! Do not get sucked into Victor's vortex of charming doom!!!
Oh yeah - a trip to St. Lucia will totally make up for an arctic marathon.
I'd be walking most of that "marathon" even if the weather was ideal.
Mark looks fine as a runner, I'm sure that the locals aren't staring in a bad way.
Uh-oh, I think that Jen broke the car.
And then there's Pasty Mike - not pretty but he did it.
OMG - we all know a wee bit more (or less) about Jen.
Note to self - don't wear your thong underwear if you ever get to be on TAR.
#1 - Margie & Luke
#2 - Victor & Tammy
#3 - Jamie & Cara
#4 - Mel & Mike
#5 - Mark & Michael
#6 - Kisha & Jen
- Christie & Jodi Or not ... it's a non-elimination leg! Good thing that they race best from behind, they have a Speed Bump task to complete next week before they get to continue on with the other tasks.
Liz has an awesome recipe for Siberian Spicy Garlic Cheese (Pikantny Syr) to go with this leg of the race.
