Meanwhile, Rob & Amber were recognized by civilians from their "Survivor" days and received help at the Roadblock from an excited local who wanted to be near the Camelot couple. (They are doing to "AR" what they did to "Survivor": This show is top 20 in the US, and is the No. 1 show in Canada -- all because of "Boston Rob" Mariano.)
On the next leg, driving through the sandy roads of the Bostwana backcountry, brother Brian skidded off the road, crashing the vehicle. It rolled, and while the brothers weren’t injured, the cameraman was. Lynn & Alex stopped to commisserate, while Ramber sped past and took the second place position behind Team POW and the Beauty Queen. Waiting for a replacement car, the brothers watched as every Team passed them, all stopping to make sure everyone was unharmed.
I'm loving the bros more every week. Greg opens the clue and begins reading . . . “Make your way home and give mom a great big hug, then eat all of her chicken enchiladas till you enter a food coma . . .? cracking his brother up.
At the next detour, Ron & Kelly began grinding corn, while just behind them, Rob & Amber arrived at the cattle post to fill the ostrich eggs with water. Now, you'd of thought that grinding corn wouldn't be that hard but it did proved to be quite a task for teams like Ray & Deana, who could not believe the natives wouldn't approve and sift their poorly ground corn. Ray kept looking at them and saying "Come on!" as if intimidating would complete the task faster.
Ron and Kelly finished quickly and were the first to journey seven miles to the Pit Stop at the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, the largest salt pan in the world. With celebrity couple Rob & Amber finishing soon after.
The brothers got a replacement vehicle and we're stunned to arrive at the detour and find two teams still working. Ray & Deana began to fall apart. Ray sniped at Deana, "You bitch way too much. It’s depressing doing this with you." Their situation became a whole lot worse when Meredith & Gretchen, who finished last in the previous leg, completed the task and managed a fifth-place finish.
With a burst of energy, the brothers quickly completed the Ostrich egg water task at the same time Ray & Deana finally completedly the corn pounding. After that it was a seven mile race across the salt pan to the mat. The vehicles arrived together but the large, trapping (and much younger) men beat the 40-year-old Ray and his emotionally battered girlfriend to the mat.
Bu-bye, Ray. I won't miss you. You're bad karma caused you to go from first place to eliminated! Next time, you might want to loan another team a shirt or a few bucks. What goes around, comes around . . .
Speaking of that . . . Lynn 'n Alex need to focus on the race and forget about team Ramber because Lynn is developing some hideous karma that's gonna poison him. Soon. As for the brothers - I hope they win a leg soon, but they are proving themselves to be cool dudes, and they can't possible have stupid mistakes every week. Same kudos to Uchenna & Joyce - a class act all the way.
