The Amazing Race: Sopwith Camel

Okay, I missed the first half of tonight's episode (for a good reason, about which you will hear much more in the future), so I'm going to start with what I saw. As always I recommend that you cruise on over to Viking Pundit's for his recap.

When I turned on the TV, the teams were racing to deliver camels in the back of a small truck. I saw Ray and Yolander using a winch to hoist the animals up and into the truckbed.

The next challenge is the Roadblock. One player from each team must search through mounds of earth to find a luau-style meal deep inside. The hippies and the old couple are the first to arrive, followed by Monicer and Joseph. Monicer kicks butt on the challenge, quickly finding the food and getting the next clue. Fran and Barry finish next, then the frat boys. Ray and Yolander arrive last, but even they find their meal before BJ and Tyler. Things are not looking good for the hippies, and all I could think of was last season's find the red bean challenge which Philiminated the Gaghans. Speaking of which, did you know that last season's sweetheart, Carissa Gaghan, is blogging this year's race, too?

There's much discussion of the heat being at least 90, which leads me to ask if I would have needed a sweater? It will soon be 90 degrees here (Phoenix) for the high until late October. I go mountain bike riding when it's 110, so I'm not impressed.

BJ finally scores and the hippies are back racing. The Pit Stop is at Jabreen Castle in Oman:

This appears to be about where the mat was:

Monicer and Joseph should win here, but they get lost, and Fran and Barry somehow get far ahead of them; it looks to be at least an hour or more judging by the lighting. The Frat Boys decide to take a "short cut"; regular viewers of The Amazing Race are probably groaning. Taking short cuts is something that people from densely populated areas do because they are used to roads being paved and reasonably straight and well-maintained. Ray and Yolander get past them and reach the mat third. Will BJ & Tyler somehow manage to do the same?

Nope. The Frat Boys finish fourth, meaning that the Hippies are facing Phil-limination. Of course, in the back of my mind, I'm thinking--have we had a non-elimination leg yet this year? Sure enough, when BJ and Tyler reach the mat they lose all their possessions, but they are not out of it!

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
