The Amazing Race 23 Episode 10

Posted by Shane on Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 9:06 pm

Despite being at the front of the pack on the train, Ally & Ashley fell behind on the detour in The Amazing Race 23 Episode 9 and were eliminated.

Teams depart in the order in which they arrived.

First: Leo & Jamal
Second: Tim & Marie - 7:26AM
Third: Jason & Amy - 7:40AM
Fourth: Nicole & Travis - 7:42AM

They will now head to eat some king cobra. Each member will need to eat their own serving. When they arrive, they get a glimpse at their upcoming meal as the live snakes greet them. For the most part, this seems to be a pretty simple task. Everybody is grossed out, but nobody is gagging and throwing up. This has nothing on gross eating challenges of the past. Before they can even get to this task that Marie is most squeamish about, Tim & Marie go to the wrong place and wander around aimlessly for a while. Marie struggles some, but she doesn’t have much trouble either.

The road block requires them to cook a dozen hard boiled eggs in the hot springs.

Road block (in order of arrival): Jamal, Travis, Jason, Marie

Travis and Jason stay there for about 8 minutes, but it’s not long enough. Jamal decides to be safe and stay an extra 2 minutes, but that’s not long enough either. On their second attempt, Travis and Jason stay for 20 minutes. As they are leaving, Marie arrives, and Tim knows that the key requirement (patience) is not something that describes her. Unlike the others, she doesn’t even have a watch, but that doesn’t matter because it takes her a while to even figure out that the eggs go in the water rather than above it. For all the drama of not knowing what she’s doing, she is the only one to get it right on the first try.

Right from here, we go to the detour, which is a choice between paint your partner or turn over a new leaf. In paint your partner, they will make each other up as traditional Japanese brides. In turn over a new leaf, they will search the tea fields for a pair of clipping sheers.

Paint your partner: Jason & Amy, Travis & Nicole, Tim & Marie
Turn over a new leaf: Leo & Jamal (switched from turn over a new leaf to paint your partner and back)

Travis & Nicole just tailgate Jason & Amy because they figure she’s a makeup expert. Leo & Jamal do the searching task, which is just asking for trouble. Marie knows to avoid the searching, though she doesn’t wear makeup. Leo & Jamal finally realize their choice is futile and switch. When they realize they have to put makeup on and worse yet shave, they switch back, however. The good news for them is that, although Jason & Amy look great, the other teams are terrible, particularly Travis.

They descend 500 steps to the waterfall that is the pit stop for this leg of the race.

First: Jason & Amy (win a trip to Cancun)
Second: Tim & Marie
Third: Travis & Nicole
Non-eliminated: Leo & Jamal

Despite their stupid detour choice, Leo & Jamal have been saved by non-elimination.
