Amazing Race 8: "If You Live, Let's Go Out!"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on November 23, 2005 4:34 PM |

The Amazing Race 8 families toured some amazing scenery in south Utah in the eighth leg of the tour and all the teams loved it - except the Weavers who didn't appreciate any of it. The desert, the mountains, Lake Powell, wide open spaces. Pfffft. Doesn't impress Rebecca Weaver, who says that anyone who thinks the world is overpopulated needs to visit there. Uhmm, what-eva Becka!


So the teams head out from the Lake Powell pitstop to Monument Valley, Utah to John Ford's Point. The Weavers reach the box first and receive a clue that tells two members to take a heli ride to the top of Elephant Butte. No challenge here, just a nice awesome view of desert and butte formations. You know - God's country. Rebecca yawns.

Sharon Pink complains about little sis Christineís talking and wonders if she has a word quota she has to reach every day. Way to diss your sis! You gotta admit, Christine does talk a lot. Yowzer. And about nothing interesting. And that makes me wonder about the editing being done on AR, I mean, the Weavers keep complaining about all the hate their getting from the other teams but we haven't seen it, yet whatever is going on behind the scenes have caused the other teams to yield the Dubyas twice now. Except for the goody-goody Bransens who have declared themselves neutral. Also horrible this race is the lack of interesting dialogue -- just "Good job, guys. Good job, Lauren. Go, Lindsay! Whhooooaaa! Good job, you guys." Gawd. Sounds like a freaking softball team.

But speaking of dialogue, the Linz bruisers keep getting funnier, what with the "Mexican hat rock" comment and "Howa bouta pick-a-nick basket" greeting to a freaking 1,100-lb GRIZZLY bear. They Linzes and the Bransens are having the time of their lives while the Pinks are being driven slowly insane by the chatterbox sister, and Rolly Weaver has become an Army of One. Seriously, except for driving, he does all the tasks - swimming, going up in the WWII plane, helicopter touring, ski jumps. What has Rebecca or Rachel done? He's even begun to speak (Rolly speaks!) which also cool - he's definitely experiencing stuff that will change his life. And his sisters show nothing but contempt for what they've been through the last few weeks. Rachel/Rebecca snapped in the SUV that she thought "the people who win will just spend [the money] on a new nose job and big boobs." Whoa, was that a smack on the Bransens? They aren't racked but then they're all wearing sports bras and that tends to flatten the hell out of any curves. The Pinks? No boob jobs needed there, so maybe Rachel/Rebecca is jealous of Meghan Linz?


Anyhoo, the first task is a choice between desert bike riding (downhill) 6 miles or rappeling 270 feet off a cliff. The Weavers choose the bikes but then find the going to be tough, while the other 3 teams do the cliff drop. When are we going to have a challenging Amazing Race when teams have to do BOTH, like, rapple down the cliff THEN ride a mountain bike for 6 miles to get the next clue. There, now that would be a race! This detour was AMAZINGLY uneventful.

Then it's off to Park City, Utah, where the roadblock involves a very cool ski jump into a pool. (I would so do that.) The Linz bruisers yield the Weavers (what a surprise!) and the most athletic member of each team volunteers to go catch some sweet air. But not sick air - only Nick Linz and Rolly Weaver went for altitude, the two chicks sort of just whiffed off the end of the ramp. Nick's take off spanked it but his FACE PLANT landing was hilarious!

Best line of the day: "If you live, let's go out!" (Some dude at the top of the ramp asking out the very cute Bransen daughter.)

2nd best line: "You WISH you were Lance Armstrong!" (Rolly heckling bikers training on the road as they drove past. Bikers don't train in Florida?)

3rd bestest line: "Chris, stop talking."

4th bestest line: "Miss Utah? Ooooh, Miss LATIN Utah - even better!" (the horndog Alex/Tommy/Nick at the finish line.)

Worst line of the day: "We are the only nice family left." (Come on, Weavers. There hasn't been anything wrong with any of the families on this race - you're the ones inciting the neg feedback.)

The Linz bruisers finally nab a first place finish and won a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Bransens are second and do the usual happy dance. The Pinks pull in pleasantly surprised that they are still in the Amazing Race and Michelle (who has a great dry wit - I'm liking her more) checks her watch and says Christine hasnít made her word quota for the day.

The Weavers are resigned to be eliminated and say that they are so over it and so done with the other hateful teams -- but wait! It's non-elimination which every AR viewer knew, because it just isn't time for the final three yet. The Weavers stagger in like they couldn't care less but Phil gives them a pep talk and that "Phil look" that says "don't ruin my show, you wenches!" Mom and the girls change their minds and are encouraged by the thought of sweet revenge on the other teams. They vow to return and fight to the finish!

Next week: The Bransen and Linzes are on a collision course in hot air balloons, while Ma Weaver confronts the lads about the yield and tells them they are gonna be sorry!


I think that anything that comes out of Rolly's mouth is hott. Even if it is an insult. I also think that when his shirt is off he is so hotttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt


I hope the Weaver's win. They have been through alot. Though they may not alwyas be nice... why should they be? It is a race and there will only be one winner. They don't have to be nice to the other teams... also Rolly cannot run the WHOLE race on his own therefore Rachel and Rebecca obviously do care about it. They are not just lazy. so. GO WEAVERS! they deserve it the most. definately. Rolly is EXTREMELY hott too. omg i like love him.

I think Rolly is Hot and his family deserves to win! hes hottttttttttttttttttttttttttt! i love him. its not an obsession, its a crush =)
