The Amazing Race Oz – US Season 26 Episode 7 + 8 Recap

AmazingRaceRecapCardEp7+8

Noah and the Ozlets (or ARzlets as they are sometimes referred for this episode) sit down to discuss their thoughts on the episodes including future CBS show pilots, speaking in German and their disappointment at the teams not skydiving!

We’re back for another episode of our ‘spin off show’ as we provide you a full recap of this weeks episodes of the US version of The Amazing Race including full written analysis and our weekly podcast episode with guest host Noah and the ‘ARzlets’ giving you their unique take on all things to do with Season 26!

Each week we will also bring you a full written review of the episode from the mind of Ozlet Alex Morella! Over to you Alex:

So it’s been a hard week of study…I had a business law mid sem today…now I know how Jenny and Jelani feel…but finally I can relax and watch some of the best reality show on CBS at the moment (with an actually likeable cast!)

I have realised that…for a series that we paid out on at the start for being stupid…I really do like the 6 teams left…and have really enjoyed their stories so far…so let’s write a couple more!

There’s a double episode tonight…I guess I’ll kind of make up the format after I see what happens after the first episode…so…let’s go racing!

Last time…we went to Monaco…teams gambled, ziplined and…made perfume and after all that…#JacknJeff went tumbling down and we never saw them again…

But we do have 6 teams I look forward to watching tonight!

#1 – #BlairleySurviving (Blair & Hayley)

#2 – #TeamBronze (Aly & Steve)

#3 – #TruckStopLoveStory (Mike & Rochelle)

#4 – #MasterHairstylists (Matt & Ashley0

#5 – #Jelannny (Jelani & Jenny)

#6 – #TeamKickButt – Now to be known as #TeamSelfie (Laura & Tyler)

So yeah…I’m going to call #TeamKickButt #TeamSelfie now…as they take lots of selfies…and they’ve stopped kicking butt…but I still like them…I wonder if we get to see any of their date…

Note…the start has been updated this week to include small moments from throughout the race…most are…not exciting…but it’s good to see some interaction

So we’re in Monte Carlo…it’s Date Night…and straight away…#TeamSelfie give us a selfie! I knew I was right to change that! Tyler and Laura are enjoying it…with a second selfie! And they are getting on well! No fireworks? Well…please keep racing…they’re getting on so well and somehow I’ve decided I like that now…I don’t know…I just do!

1

You go #TeamSelfie!

But in the actual race…we’re off…with #BlairleySurviving heading out first at 12:35am!

Fly to Windhoek, Namibia, Once there sign up for a charter flight to a bush plane!

African Safari leg! Always love going to see the greatest animal reserves in the world!

Hayley says it’s great that they won a leg, Blair is confident, communication issues seem to be gone now! They’re confident they can keep it up!

#TeamBronze depart, they found the last leg tough…but they still found 2nd….that’s not bad at all for a team that felt they didn’t do well!

#TruckStopLoveStory leave and Mike says he’s never heard of Namibia…I died a little on the inside #GeographyNerd – I named all 196 countries in the world in 7 minutes and 30 seconds the other day…that’s……sad

#MasterHairstylists, #Jelannny and #TeamSelfie all depart…no fanfare or interest…so I guess…we’ll probably all be on the same flight to Namibia!

Everyone is at the airport, 3 blind dates and 3 dating teams…so it will be interesting….everyone is basically sleeping at the airport…

And now we’re getting on planes…

And now we’re in Namibia!

The scramble commences!

#TeamBronze get charter 1

#Jelannny get charter 2

#MasterHairstylists get charter 3

#TeamSelfie get charter 4

#TruckStopLoveStory get charter 5

#BlairleySurviving get charter 6

Hayley complains that because they wanted to be comfortable they’re not last…Blair tells her to chill…after 10 hours on a plane with Hayley…I’d just want to relax…

Hayley says they picked comfortable seats instead of better ones…Blair says the saving grace is that Hayley has a crush on her pilot….Hagen…he even gets his own introduction!

2

What a handsome bush pilot!

We move onto the bush planes!

Everyone takes off…people want to see animals! What else do you do in Africa!

#BlairleySurviving get a selfie with Hagen that handsome bush pilot…and then they edit out Blair…just to make it even better…great job editors!

3

So handsome…also Blair and Hayley

There’s even some racing in the air! #TeamSelfie might’ve got past #MasterHairstylists!

So we start landing on a super small runway…and into the Ford Rangers! But we do also get our next clue!

Drive yourselves along the paths to the Bushmen Village, and pick up a salt lick on the way

Salt lick…that’s new!

So #TeamBronze get into the car and drive off…with PHIL ON THE SCENE! He commentates beautifully as #TeamBronze take us out onto the dirt tracks!

4

Getting out with the fans!

More planes land, more Ford shots…nothing new

Also…#TeamSelfie got date night again, the 3rd time in a row…IT’S A SIGN!!!

#TeamBronze find the salt lick and chuck It in the van, #Jelannny and #MasterHairstylists also get them…but #TeamSelfie seem to have missed it!

#TeamBronze arrive at the village! And it’s your typical African village seen in The Azmazing Race, a lot of colour and singing and smiles! We also get our roadblock!

Who’s Feeling Grassy? Help the Bushmen build a sand hut to get your next clue

5

So Aly is doing this…as #TeamBtone have been rotating between the roadblock, although Aly thinks it would’ve been better for Steve to do it

#Jelannny arrive, and it’s Jelani doing it!

Aly keeps going on about building the task…

#MasterHairstylists arrive…it’s Matt on the job!

At the back, #TruckStopLoveStory land and find their natural enemy…the stickshift! Mike can’t even figure out the key….good signs already….

#BlairleySurviving arrive…and drive off…Leaving #TruckStopLoveStory just stuck there…turns out they were using the wrong key!

#TeamSelfie arrive and it’s Tyler who’s up, Jenny looks to be annoying Jelani, while Aly keeps complaining…#BlairleySurviving turn up, find out they missed the salt lick…and go back to get it…that makes Tyler think…so they ask #TeamBronze, and realise they have to go and get it too!

What’s this damn salt lick for anyway?

Both teams pick them up and get back…

Still no sign for #TruckStopLoveStory…here they come…Rochelle is doing the roadblock!

So we get a lot of building shots…and now Hayley getting excited and meeting little children…they think she’s annoying already…

6

Maybe you’ll listen to me unlike Blair!

Rochelle gets stuck in a bush…and then we seem to get work with rocks and sticks…it’s all trendy! And…it seems Tyler is destroying it! He’s good at building houses! More husband traits for you Laura! Matt is also doing a great job!

And we get a third selfie from Tyler! He’s all over it today! He takes the lead and gets their next clue!

7

This guy doesn’t even know what he’s posing for!

Drive to Ranger Headquarters and look for the head ranger to get your next clue!

A great comeback by #TeamSelfie! #MasterHairstylists and #Jelannny and #TeamBronze are all in hot pursuit!

At the headquarters, #TeamSelfie drop off their salt lick and get their next clue…it’s Detour time!

Track: Using telemetric technology…they must locate and Elephant

8

Pack: Work with African Wild Dogs, prepare a meal of Wildebeast, and serve it up to the dogs!

9

I love Elephants and African Wild Dogs! Great choices of animals!

Both #TeamSelfie and #MasterHairstylists choose to pack

#Jelanny also choose this when they turn up….they think about using their express pass…but they don’t!

We see a lot of butchering….and a few of them are quite good at it…Tyler, Matt and Ashley in particular!

#TeamBronze turn up with a salt lick twice the size of all the others, to their humour…Pack is out of spots…so they’re off to track the Elephant! It looks like fun though!

Back at the roadblock, Blair and Rochelle are both toiling away! Blair finishes, leaving just Rochelle going…it’s hard going in the sun for her!

We see a lot of meat slicing…everyone thinks they’re quite good…then Ashley kind of gags quite badly…maybe she’s not a great Butcher!

10

Just keep slicing and looking at the blood!

#BlairleySurviving turn up, and after trying to do Pack, get told they have to do track. Hayley checks 700 times if Blair knows how the antenna works…he calmly assures her he knows how it works! Apparently that’s giving Hayley an attitude…

#TeamBronze are out tracking…they see a giraffe which is exciting….but they’re starting to just snap at each other a bit…

At pack, #TeamSelfie have enough meat to feed the dogs, #MasterHairstylists are shortly behind…#Jelannny are now done as well!

Back at the roadblock…Rochelle is nearly done, with the tribe encouraging her to finish! She gets it done!

12

Tribal support!

We now get a lot of exciting animal shots, with antelope, hippos and zebras running across the track in front of #TeamBronze

#TeamSelfie arrive at the Wild Dogs…#MasterHairstylists throw it all out too…and there’s lot of dogs eating!

Feeding time!

Both #TeamSelfie and #MasterHairstylists are done…they’re off to the Pit Stop!

Proceed to the Pit Stop! Spitzkoppe…the last team to check in…may be eliminated

13

Spitzkoppe…it’s like a historic landmark thing…

#Jelannny are not far behind the others too…Jenny is…wanting to smear blood on her face…right…

#TruckStopLoveStory are so far behind they can do Pack as everyone is gone from there…Rochelle is vegeratian so…this isn’t her favourite challenge!

With the Elephants…#TeamBronze are not great as how they are doing…a bit more feuding between them! #BlairleySurviving are struggling a bit too!

#TruckStopLoveStory get all the meat chopped up and go to feed the dogs…they’re making up time…as they always seem to do!

At the front it’s down to the last …215km to the Spitzkoppe…it really is a quest to the pit stop!

#TruckStopLoveStory are done and…they’re now up into 4th!

#TeamBronze finally track their Elephant! It’s exciting! They get their next clue…that would’ve been a cool roadblock!

14

Must’ve been hiding under a rock…

#BlairleySurviving also track their Elephant…so everyone is on their way to the Pit Stop!

So on the way to the pit stop…#TeamSelfie randomly stop to look at the map…and it sets off a bit of a chain reaction…#Jelannny are caught behind so have to wait…and #MasterHairstylists freak out that everyone stopped so they stop and reverse back! But now…#TeamSelfie know they’re fine…#Jelannny wait patiently…and #MasterHairstylists are outside of the car running around like they’ve got no clue…Laura and Tyler laugh their heads off as Matt and Ashley realise what’s going on and get back in the car…They’re frustrated now!

15

What are we doing???

We cut back to #TeamBronze…where Aly has had a bad day and is complaining that Steve is driving too close to the side of the road…which is never a good sign…Steve jokes about her wanting to drive and…he hits something….they have a flat! A terrible time to get a flat! Aly said she saw it coming…Steve apologises…but they’re in trouble now! #BlairleySurviving pass them…it’s all gone pear shaped for the Olympians…Steven Bradbury style! #Speedskatingreferences – 13 years on…and all us Aussies talk about is Steven Bradbury! If you’re an American and you don’t know what I’m talking about…look up Steven Bradbury on YouTube…it’s worth it!

16

Not a good tyre look!

17

Steven Bradbury…everyone else fell over…so he won our first Winter Olympic Gold medal ever!

But that doesn’t help our winter athletes now…they’re in the desert…and the tyre is messed up! Luckily Steve knows about cars and can keep working on it!

At the front…#MasterHairstylists are first but they’re not sure where they’re going…so…they briefly stop and ask a guy…and that’s all that #TeamSelfie need! They race around the outside and go into 1st…and are feeling confident!

#Jelannny are straight behind…but Jenny wants to go somewhere else…#TruckStopLoveStory are just lost in the middle of anywhere…again…always a good sign!

#TeamBronze finish changing the tyre…so they’re back on track! #BlairleySurviving hope some other teams might be lost…and we cut to #Jelannny, who seem to have lost all bearings on where they are!

It looks like it’s down to #TeamSelfie and #MasterHairstylists…it could come down to a sprint! We haven’t had a good one this season!

A bit further down the track…Aly is annoying Steve over driving in the middle of the road

Both the leading teams arrive at Spitzkoppe…but it’s hard to get to Phil! #TeamSelfie spot him but choose a rocky route, I don’t know it #MasterHairstylists really know where he is exactly! But we have a race on to the line!

18

A different way to Phil!

Both teams see Phil on the top of the rock…but they can’t get up the rock to get to him…so they have to go round…which might put #MasterHairstylists back in front…it’s tight…..it’s epic! They’re clumbing up the rocks…and…it looks like….#MasterHairstylists have snatched it from #TeamSelfie!

Phil pays out on Laura not being a rock climber…so does Tyler saying she was looking for the stairs!

#MasterHairstylists get the win though! They have each won $5000!

19

Chance of humility…none

Ashley says this is the strength and postitive stuff and that will get them through when they are married…that’s the engaged reference I was looking for!

#TeamSelfie get team number 2…get date night…and another Selfie with Phil…I’m glad they absolutely proved me right that they are #TeamSelfie!

20

Thanks to teams like #TeamSelfie…this will probably be back next season

So it looks like a few teams are lost…but #BlairleySurviving are in the right spot…#Jelannny are definitely not! They turn around to head back!

#BlairleySurviving check in as Team Number 3! A solid comeback given they were last at the end of the Detour! Hayley talks about handsome Hagen as well as the kids…Blair is just happy when she has other things to talk about!

It looks like everyone is trying to make it…

#Jelannny check in as Team Number 4…they really thought they were last!

So it’s down to 2…both who are close…who will get there first….

It’s #TruckStopLoveStory! They are team number 5!

Which leaves #TeamBronze to finish in 6th spot! Phil informs them they are the last team…but it’s a non-elimination leg! They are still in the race! They have a speedbump to come…but they have avoided elimination! Aly says the competitor in her is coming out now! That’s what we’ve been waiting for!

21

Catch up time!

In any case…I’m not really going to assess as it’s a non-elimination…there was a nice Detour, and a hot, taxing roadblock, and we saw African animals…what else could you want…but let’s keep racing!

You just saw where everyone is…if you haven’t managed to remember

  1. #MasterHairstylists
  2. #TeamSelfie
  3. #BlairleySurviving
  4. #Jelannny
  5. #TruckStopLoveStory
  6. #TeamBronze

There…so let’s go racing!

Nope…let’s look at teams sleeping in tents…they all cheer to see the Olympians…I’m sure everyone is actually disappointed…

22

Was this the date night?

They all look at a sunset…it’s apparently really beautiful and perfect!

Can we race now? Yes! Let’s race!

Proceed to Swakopmund Bookstore, pick up the local paper, and scour the German text for their next clue!

That’s clever…I like that!

I also was not aware of Namibia’s history with Germany…the more you know!

Caution: U-Turn ahead! Ooooh!

So #MasterHairstylists are off…and #TeamSelfie are off too! They want to win a leg!

Everyone is getting taken with a driver today…so it’s nice and easy! Which gives teams a chance to talk about U-Turns!

#MasterHairstylists really want to U-Turn #Jelannny after an incident back in Thailand…

#BlairleySurviving depart, and there’s more trust in each other now!

#Jelannny are off fourth, they still have their express pass so that might be handy!

#TruckStopLoveStory leave…and Rochelle is a changed person! They want to keep fighting because there’s so much to see!

#TeamBronze leave last…but they could still turn things around! They could do a Bradbury!

#MasterHairstylists get into the bookstore first…but it looks like #TeamSelfie find the clue first! It’s in German…and Tyler educates Ashley on Namibia’s history…after she thinks they’re going back to Germany…could you imagine if a team did that????

23

Anyone read that? Anyone?

They work together to find it though…

Basically…they’re going to a skydiving place! Everyone is excited…and a tad nervous! Everyone finds the newspaper and understands where they are going! It’s in the middle of nowhere almost!

It’s Roadblock time! Will they trick everyone? I love it when they do that!

Drop a yellow case out of the sky with the roaming gnome…then the Gnome will skydive out while you find the case in the desert to get your next clue

24

This…that is all

That’s brutal…I love it!

Also…the Gnome…always the star!

Turns out there’s no skydiving…it’s running into the Desert to find a yellow case! So Laura and Ashley thought they were signing up to skydive…they really have signed up to run around in the desert…ouch!

In any case…the first case is dropped…that’s for Laura to chase!

Hayley is excited to skydive…she’s going to be disappointed soon!

Ashley’s case is dropped…she takes off after it!

Hayley gets to do the roadblock…and Blair is happy to let her run off into the desert for a bit…at least the lads can have a bit of man time together!

#Jelannny has found out they have a flat tyre! That’s a problem! Oh dear!

25

More tyre problems!

At the roadblock…Laura finds hers…Ashley also finds hers…while Hayley is still looking…

#Jelannny fix their tyre…they are back on the road!

#TruckStopLoveStory are on the right path, but #TeamBronze are getting lost again it seems!

Ashley makes it to her little mound and collects the gnome, Laura is right behind! These two are standing out at the moment! Hayley also fetches her case, so she’s off to the gnome!

We get our next clue though!

Drive yourselves to Snake Bend Pan and look for your next clue!

Alright then…it’s #MasterHairstylists just ahead of #TeamSelfie but they are teaming up together! Blair is slightly worried that they might get U-Turned, but everyone knows #Jelannny have the Express pass and want to get rid of it! In any case, Hayley also finishes so #BlairleySurviving are off as well!

26

Fetching stuff!

We get a lot of talking to gnomes…Travelocity must love it!

#TruckStopLoveStory arrive next…Mike is running…and #Jelannny arrive…quickly debate the merits of the express pass…decide to hold onto it for the moment, and it’s Jelani running!

Mike looks lost, but Jelani finds his box…and then Mike finds his…so it’s close between them! No sign of #TeamBronze yet! Here they come! But they have a speed bump first!

Speed Bump: Make a toy, African style – Use old parts of bottles and cans to create a a plane toy for the kids

27

I imagine this is how Phil picks where to go in the world next!

I don’t know about calling it ‘African Style’…sounds a tad like we’re just saying everything in Africa is poor…a bit of a generalistation there…

It’s a little delicate for the hands, but it can be done!

Jelani gets back, and Mike isn’t too far behind!

#TeamSelfie and #MasterHairstylists again get to the Detour together…both seem ready to use the U-Turn!

We also get Phil on the scene again! Just a quick one! But they all count!

28

Short but sweet!

We get the detours!

Work: Drag tyres behind their truck and smooth out 5 miles of road

29

Play: Teams will go sand skiing…

30

Looks like we’ve got the divide…#MasterHairstylists are skiing, while #TeamSelfie are working.

#BlairleySurviving also choose to work as Hayley can’t ski!

The skiing looks challenging but fun!

At work, Tyler starts lugging around these huge tyres as #BlairleySurviving turn up and Hayley proves she’s not great at helping Blair lift…Laura works on the chains and complements Tyler on his manliness…Top partnership!

#MasterHairstylists are up in the dunes…gradually getting there!

Mike finally gets back from the roadblock…and is absolutely exhausted, he’s put in everything to that! Rochelle is impressed with how they’ve been going and is ready to take the next step when they get back…you mean…you’ve said yes Rochelle…he can really meet your son???? How exciting!

Marriage is easy…but meeting your girlfriend’s son…that’s a challenge! Mike is excited for that though!

#TeamBronze get their toys done! They head to the roadblock, which Steve is doing! He starts well…but Aly thinks he’s gone the wrong way…so he’s a bit lost…In fact Aly says he’s so far off track…and he’s running even further away!

It’s all going wrong for the Olympians!

31

If only they had a map to help them!

#Jelannny are worried about the upcoming U-Turn…#TeamSelfie are making good progress at work, while Blair says the task is a metaphor for the way they’ve got on during the race and smoothing the surfaces is fixing Hayley…who can’t wait to get started on all of Blair’s faults…while in the Sand…#MasterHairstylists are getting there….slowly! Ashley is struggling to get up…Matt tells her to look at her fiancé! That’s another reference! They make it to the next target!

#TeamSelfie are all hooked up and are driving along their miles of road! #BlairleySurviving are ready to get hooked up as well…for both these teams I of course refer to the task…they’re not going to actually hook up…yet!

At the roadblock, Steve finally finds the case, and can get them out of the roadblock, they have a long way to go!

In the Detour, Tyler is having fun, while #BlairleySurviving are getting more agitated with each other!

#MasterHairstylists make it to the top! They then get to change their skis…and bodyboard their way down the sand dunes! It looks like so much fun!

32

Plus…the view!

They are in the lead! That’s bad news for #Jelannny!

In fact…it’s a double U-turn! Time for betrayal and devastation!

#MasterHairstylists are done…#TeamSelfie have just finished, and #Jelannny have turned up and decided to use their Express pass on Play…so…it’s all very tight and dramatic…so Tyler gives us a selfie video about #MasterHairstylists potentially U-Turning #Jelannny…let’s see what happens…

33

Important race moment…takes a selfie!

There’s 3 teams sprinting to the Double U-Turn…what will happen next!

#MasterHairstylists get there first…and they choose to U-Turn Jelannny!

34

At least these photos don’t have hashtags!

They get their next clue…it’s the pit stop I think…they have to find Phil…somewhere!

#TeamSelfie are also playing hardball! They U-Turn #TeamBronze! So it will be a challenge for them from where they are now!

35

Bang!

Everyone runs past each other and it’s all friendly…until #Jelannny see that they have been U-Turned…they said it was coming! And now they have to go and do work! Which you know…isn’t that bad considering they didn’t even do the other side of the detour…so it kind of evens itself out…

Here we go…Phil lets us know where they are driving!

Proceed to the Pit Stop, Goanikontes Oasis, each team must also bring an exotic animal! The last team to check in…may be eliminated!

36

It’s the part that’s not desert!

It’s on! The top 2 are feeling very excited! It’s all got very serious!

#BlairleySurviving are excited to find they aren’t U-Turned, so they are off to the Pit Stop

#TruckStopLoveStory turn up, and choose to do Work for their Detour!

Steve finally gets back from the desert at the roadblock, so #TeamBronze have a very long way to go!

At the detour…#TruckStopLoveStory are getting through work, while #Jelannny are finding the work a bit harder in the heat!

We cut to the Pit Stop! It’s a nice Oasis! And #MasterHairstylists are still in the lead! #TeamSelfie right on their tail!

#TeamSelfie get a Zebra, while #MasterHairstylists get the…goat…antelope…thing…I missed it’s name! Also…Ashley forgot the gnome!

And it’s a…different race to the pit stop…guiding an animal there! Not quite as fast paced!

In fact it’s really relaxed…but then the Zebra decides to go nuts! It kicks out at Tyler…but he gets it back under control!

37

That back kick is really lethal!

And finally…#TeamSelfie are Team Number 1!

38

No winners selfie?

As the winners they have won a trip for 2 to Queenstown, New Zealand!

Queenstown is awesome so I’ve heard from many friends!

#MasterHairstylists check in as Team Number 2, they said they kept their promises with the U-Turn!

#BlairleySurviving check in as 3rd, with the Camel and the gnome…they truly fit in with these guys…They got on…ok…And even they choose to take a selfie with Phil!

39

A camel, a gnome, an African local, a crazy lady, Phil Keoghan, and Blair…quality selfie!

Back at the detour…#TruckStopLoveStory are done…so are #Jelannny

#TeamBronze turn up…they’re a long way behind and they choose to ski…not knowing they’ll have to do them both!

They get through play…I don’t know how long it took….but Steve doesn’t get that far on the board which was amusing!

At the pit stop…#TruckStopLoveStory choose the Zebra…while #Jelannny get the Camel

On the way there…#Mike loses the Zebra….that Zebra goes nuts and kicks Mike right in the stomach!

40

Just Horsin’ around!

It’s another funny race to the pit stop…with #Jelannny getting in at 4th, and #TruckStopLoveStory get in as 5th, after changing the Zebra to the Donkey…

#TeamBronze find out they are U-Turned…they do the work task….but they reflect on the race…they’ve had a great time, and have really enjoyed doing the race…

They check in….they are the last team…and they are eliminated from the race…They take it well…but they think they should’ve won the whole thing…and…I thought they would too!

41

No Bradbury ending for the Winter Olympians!

And that is that!

Wow….2 hours of racing and blogging down…and nearly 4000 words later! Here we are!

5 teams left!

1 – #TeamSelfie – Yay! They won a leg…and I’ve really warmed to them! So happy to see them on top…they just destroy challenges and everything now!

2 – #MasterHairstylists – Two really good legs, they are coming into their own and look like the best chance for the dating teams!

3 – #BlairleySurviving – Well they never seem to dominate, but they just get thtough everything well…they seem to be getting on better too…but you know it could only be for a second!

4 – #Jelannny – Used the express pass, got U-turned, but got through…Jenny looks like she’ll drive Jelani mad…they need a good result…they haven’t had one for a while!

5 – #TruckStopLoveStory – They just keep surviving! I don’t know how much longer for…but they keep outlasting strong teams…so you can never fault them on effort, they’ve been so courageous and tough so far!

Detour Assessment: Work and Play…they were tough challenges, which is what you were after, and definitely worthy of an episode with the U-Turn

Roadblock Assessment: Misleading to everyone doing it…but it was a challenge! A lot of aerobic work…I like those kinds of challenges!

Leg Assessment: Namibia is such a cool country! German language in the middle of Africa…with such cool sand dunes! Was great to explore such a great country over 2 legs!

Predictions: Colin – 2nd, Kristan – 2nd, Rossi – 2nd, Jarrod – 4th, Alex – 1st

So…I guess that means Jarrod gets a point…dear god! It also means my pic to win is out, and pretty much everyone’s pick for a top 3 finish…you were onto something Jarrod!

Quick Counts:

Selfie Count: 7 for the Episodes thanks mainly to #TeamSelfie (27 in total)

#MasterHairstylist’s references to marriage: 2 for the Episode (6 in total)

We’re down to 5! The race is heating up! Bring on the finish!

1 Comment on The Amazing Race Oz – US Season 26 Episode 7 + 8 Recap

  1. Entertaining episode! This is my first time actually watching the amazing race properly and it’s pretty good. Rooting for Mike and Rochelle, even though I don’t think they will win they are my favorite.
