It looked like Marty & Hagan were going to be fine in The Amazing Race 28 Episode 2… until they decided to leave their cab behind and go for a jog.
Teams depart in the order in which they arrived.
First: Tyler & Korey – 10:05AM
Second: Brodie & Kurt – 10:20AM
Third: Burnie & Ashley – 10:26AM
Fourth: Dana & Matt – 10:56AM
Fifth: Erin & Joslyn – 11:35AM
Sixth: Zach & Rachel – 11:36AM
Seventh: Brittany & Jessica – 11:37AM
Eighth: Sheri & Cole – 11:52AM
Ninth: Scott & Blair – 11:55AM
Tenth: Darius & Cameron – 12:29PM
Brodie acknowledges he doesn’t shut the hell up, but at least he just seems to be obnoxiously loud and not attacking his partner. Not to be outdone, Dana does more than her own share of yelling at Matt, constantly snapping at him for no reason. Same dynamic every season with at least one team, and it’s not fun or interesting to watch.
Teams will now walk to their next destination. I don’t think they’re going anywhere this leg. This could be bad news for the teams that are hours behind.
The detour is a choice between tickets and tejo. In tickets, teams must board a local bus and get people on their bus and collect the money. In tejo, teams must play the country’s national sport for lack of a better term, tossing clay discs to make explosions.
Tejo: Tyler & Korey, Brodie & Kurt, Burnie & Ashley, Dana & Matt, Brittany & Jessica, Sheri & Cole, Darius & Cameron
Tickets: Zach & Rachel, Erin & Joslyn, Scott & Blair
It soon becomes apparent that the tejo detour is far superior, so much so that everybody who did the bus task is now fighting for last, dropping behind even Darius & Cameron, who were behind by almost an hour.
As difficult as the tickets task is already, Rachel makes a critical mistake. She misreads the denomination on the bills.
The road block requires teams to choose a bag and then search the market for two more bags from the same designer.
Road block (in order of arrival): Kurt, Tyler, Ashley, Dana, Jessica, Cole, Erin, Darius, Scott, Zach
As I’m sitting here thinking it’s game over for Zach & Rachel since they chose the wrong side of a lopsided detour, they catch a lucky break. Darius is unable to find the person to return his bags to, who is sitting right where they started.
The pit stop for this leg of the race is Baluarte de San Diego.
First: Brodie & Kurt (win a trip to Greece)
Second: Tyler & Korey
Third: Burnie & Ashley
Fourth: Dana & Matt
Fifth: Brittany & Jessica
Sixth: Sheri & Cole
Seventh: Erin & Joslyn
Eighth: Scott & Blair
Ninth: Zach & Rachel
Eliminated: Darius & Cameron
As he greets Zach & Rachel, Phil tells them to turn around and see the last team to check in. It looked like Darius & Cameron might have overcome their second to last place finish from last week, but a dumb mistake puts them seconds behind.
