The Amazing Race: Hong Kong Fu

Teams must first make their way to Hong Kong. I checked the starting times, and the Beauty Queens were almost an hour ahead of everybody starting this race. Of course, since they start at 12:30 AM, that doesn't do much good. All the teams arrive at the airport. The first counter to open will be Malaysia Air, but they have the second flight. Young Gay manages to find the Malaysia Air office and get the first standby slot while the Beauty Queens are waiting up by the counter. Then Young Gay and One and a Half Women get the first two slots on Hong Kong Air, which leaves earlier. As it works out, only the one team can get on the first flight. The BQs make a stink about having been first on the standby list for the second flight, which actually was not right. But it doesn't matter as they and One and a Half Women get on the plane, leaving Eric and Dannielle to catch a (much) later flight.

Teams must make their way to a dry cleaners where there is a Fast Forward. Young Gay grab it. They participate in a car doing a stunt routine for a movie. I'm thinking that's a pretty easy bit for the Fast Forward. Then the car launches, falls onto its side, skids about 20 feet and ends up back on its wheels again. Pretty cool! They head to the Pit Stop, which is at the Jockey Club.

The other teams are faced with a Detour: Kung Fu or Sign Fu. In Kung Fu, teams must climb a ladder up an 11-story building while fending off Kung Fu fighters. In Sign Fu, teams must find a particular sign at a crowded intersection. Everybody takes Kung Fu, and I'm a little concerned about Charla, but she handles it like a champ. And Mirna actually shows some humor for a change.

Next task: Take a ferry to Hong Kong Island. Amazingly, Charla and Mirna's cab driver drives them to Hong Kong Island, where they board the ferry heading back to the mainland. Doh! Fortunately they can just take the turnaround trip, but Eric and Danielle are catching up (apparently). The next task is to bust down doors like a cop and find the room with the clue. Charla surprises again for the second time tonight, doing a credible job of kicking open doors. But the Beauty Queens are well ahead by this point, so it looks like the order of finish for the evening is pretty easy.

Teams now head to a park, where they have to ferry a roaming gnome across a pond. The key here is to do it slowly so the gnome does not fall off the boat; nobody has that problem. By this point I'm thinking there's not much drama tonight. Eric and Danielle get lost on the way to the Jockey Club, and Eric refuses to follow a cab. So we don't get the usual, "Which team is it?", which makes me very suspicious. Sure enough, it turns out tonight is a non-elimination leg, so we're stuck with Colege Boy for another evening.

As always, check out Viking Pundit's amazing recap as well!

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.
