Teams have to leave Kiev and travel over 3000 miles to Quarazazate, Morocco. This is going to be one amazing show tonight. First thing they have to drive to an antique store, Antiquities Du Sud and choose one of the good luck charms. One of them will bring ‘good fortune’ at the pitstop.
The Blondes get a flight from Kiev to Milan to Casablanca but then do not make their connection so they have to find another flight. The rest of the teams get on the same flight from Kiev to Paris to Casablanca. But all are on the same flight from Casablanca to Quarazazate. I hate it when they do that. How much of a race is it really when you all get on the same flight!
They are all on the way to Quarazazate at the same time. But Lyn and Karlyn got a map in Paris and found their way to the Casbah area and made it to Antiquities Du Sud first.
Once they all get their good luck pieces they have to go to Atlas Studios, an old movie studio in the desert. Cleopatra and Gladiator were filmed on this backlot. The Yield is located here also, so I think this is where the Bamas take out all their frustrations. The best part is when the Bamas passed the other 3 teams, after getting their charm and they where on the way to the studios. The mob scene in the previews for the show was a waste! There was no danger there, it was just a gaggle of people walking around and one of them got in the car with the B Queens to show them where the antiques store is. They make it last to the store for their necklace and now they are sweating knowing that the Bamas are going to yield their asses! But when they make it to the studios, they don’t open until 8am, so they all catch up. I HATE that!
At 8am, at the studio gates, they open the door and they all bolt in like their asses are on fire. And I suppose, in a sense they are. The Addicts and Rob and Kim yield no one, but the B Queen yielded the Bamas. Damn …why couldn’t those Bamas run faster!
The Roadblock this time is Race Chariots. One has to get in the buggy and be pulled around like a chariot race. They have to pull down 2 flags the same color as the plume on their horse. They then get the next clue. Dustin and Rob get both flags and James is still working on the second. But the yield isn’t even over. The Bamas hit that race running, got the flags fast and then got on the road.
Once they are all done, they have to drive to the town on Idelssan where have to find the Cafe La Pirgola to get their next clue. Rob and Kimberly got a flat, more with the bad car karma.
The next clue is a Detour “Throw It” or “Grind It”. In Throw It, the teams will have to go to a pottery shop and make 2 pots. Once the artisian approves their pots, they get the next clue. This is going to be a hard one, throwing clay is NOT easy. In Grind It, they grind 77 pounds of olives and fill a pressing sleeves to get their next clue. The Addicts, The Bamas and The B Queens all do grind it. Rob and Kimberly are still back with a flat tire. But miraculously, they get there, the B Queens pass the place and end up the last time there. Since there are only 3 stations to grind olives, they are outta luck. They yielded Bama and they still beat them there.
They now drive to the pitstop in a Berber camp in the middle of the desert. On the road to Marrakesh The only way they get there, is by seeing a boulder! Surprisingly no one got lost and they all made it to the pitstop without too much trouble but lots of nailbiting goodness.
The teams fall in as follows:
1. The Addicts
2. The Bamas
3. Rob and Kimberly
and Last- The B Queens. But their asses are safe, it was a non-elimination week! Darn it.
Next week, the previews look pretty tasty. The Bamas have to eat something gross and Kim get pelted with apples. Love it. See ya then.
