PostSubject: The Amazing Race stats as of 10/12 and show recap   Mon Oct 13, 2008 2:16 am

The following teams participated in the Race, with their relationships at the time of filming. Note that this table is not necessarily reflective of all content broadcasted on television due to inclusion or exclusion of some data. Placements are listed in finishing order:

Team Relationship Position (by leg) Roadblocks performed
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Ken & Tina Separated 2nd 1st 1st Ken 1, Tina 1
Toni & Dallas Mother / Son 6th 5th 2nd Toni 1, Dallas 1
Terence & Sarah Newly Dating 3rd 3rd 3rd Terence 0, Sarah 2
Marisa & Brooke Southern Belles 10th 9th 4th Marisa 2, Brooke 0
Aja & Ty Dating Long Distance 8th 4th 5th Aja 1, Ty 1
Nick & Starr Brother / Sister 1st 6th 6th Nick 2, Starr 0

Mark & Bill Best Friends 4th 2nd 9th1 Mark 1, Bill 1
Anthony & Stephanie Dating 9th 10th Anthony 1, Stephanie 0
Anita & Arthur Married Beekeepers 11th Anita 0, Arthur 0

Note 1: Mark & Bill arrived in 8th on Leg 3 but were given a 30 minute penalty for taking a taxi instead of going on foot during the Detour. The only other remaining team (Kelly & Christy) arrived during their penalty time, so they dropped to last place and were eliminated.

* indicates a leg where the U-Turn was available but not used.

Leg 3 (Brazil → Bolivia)

  • Fortaleza (Pinto Martins International Airport) to La Paz, Bolivia (El Alto International Airport)
  • La Paz (Statue of Simn Bolvar)
  • La Paz (Plaza Murillo - Narvaez Hat Shop)
  • La Paz (Los Titanes del Ring)
  • La Paz (Mirador el Monticulo)

The Detour was a choice between Musical March or Bumpy Ride. In
Musical March, teams had to gather and lead a marching band through the
city to a band leader to receive their next clue. In Bumpy Ride, teams
had had to ride a traditional wooden bicycle down a cobblestone road to
receive their next clue. In this leg's Roadblock, one team member had
to learn six wrestling moves from luchadoras called the Fighting Cholitas (cholitas luchadoras).
After performing these moves in the ring, they were given their next
clue. If they fail at performing the move, they have to go back and
train with the Fighting Cholita again before returning to the ring.
Additional tasks

  • At the statue of Simn Bolvar, teams had to get a newspaper and search it for their next clue.
  • At the hat shop, teams had to buy a traditional hat to get their next clue.

The Amazing Race 13: Episode 3 Recap

Sunday, October 12, 2008

The Amazing Race 13
has a definitive favorite right now. Ken and Tina, the formerly
estranged married couple, are dominating. It helps to have Ken, a
former NFL safety, anchoring the squad, but Tina is no slouch either.
Both Ken and Tina have good heads on their shoulders, and have turned
out to be a perfect Amazing Race team thus far, having won two of the
first three legs. Tonight's episode saw The Amazing Race
teams head to the high altitude of La Paz, Bolivia. There were epic
blunders, brutal falls off wooden bikes and the start of what may prove
to be an entertaining cat fight.

Leg 3: Fortaleza, Brazil > La Paz, Bolivia

The teams departed in the morning from Fortaleza and were told to take
a flight to La Paz, Bolivia. Once there, teams had to taxi to a
downtown statue of Simon Bolivar and wait for the morning paper. In
the morning paper's classifieds, teams found their next clue. The clue
inside the paper informed teams to head to the Narvaez Hat Shop in
Plaza Murillo for their next clue. Once there, teams encountered a
Detour: Musical March or Bumpy Ride. In Musical March, teams walked
through the city, picking up various members of a marching band on the
way. In Bumpy Ride, teams rode old-school wooden bikes throughout the
city. At the end of the detour, a U-Turn was made available. No one
used it. Once the detour was completed, teams were told to take a taxi
to Los Titanes del Ring, where they found a Road Block. One member of
each team had to learn how to become a Fighting Cholita, who are
basically WWE fighters in the form of Bolivian women. The players had
to rehearse a series of wrestling moves and then perform them
successfully in front of a crowd. After completing the Road Block,
teams took taxis to the leg's pit stop at the Mirador el Monticulo.

9th Place/ Eliminated: Mark and Bill

After acquiring their hat, they read the clue wrong for the Detour.
Instead of walking, they took a taxi. This cost them, as they incurred
a thirty minute penalty at the pit stop. However, what really killed
them was their pitiful performance at the Fighting Cholita arena, where
Mark took three tries to perform the wrestling moves correctly. Awful
performance there, sending the nerds to the back of the pack and,
ultimately, their elimination.

8th Place: Kelly and Christy

They ran a terrible leg, and were only saved by Mark and Bill's
inability to correctly read their clue or fake wrestle. Christy is not
a great bike rider either, falling a couple times and almost breaking
her face open. But the real story is their new feud with Nick and
Starr. Kelly and Christy think that Starr pushed one of their sports
bras off a ledge in between legs two and three. They decide to hate
Starr, and that hatred has only intensified after Aja informed Kelly
that Starr asked her and Ty to use the U-Turn on Kelly and Christy.
They were lucky to survive the leg, but I think they should be better
going forward.

7th Place: Andrew and Dan

Solid leg, and they should have finished much higher if it weren't for a crappy taxi driver. But, they played a good leg.

6th Place: Nick and Starr

Did Starr push a sports bra off a ledge? Who cares? I doubt she would
have done that, because it seems like a completely unnecessary thing to
do. But, regardless, it created a rift between the two teams, and one
that won't go away any time soon. These two are really good athletes,
as evidenced by their impressive wrestling and biking performances.
However, the promo for next week's show sees Starr getting badly hurt.
Let's hope CBS is faking us out.

5th Place: Aja and Ty

They did fine on this leg, but the promo for next week shows them in
the middle of what appears to be an ugly stand-off. They won't even
talk to each other. These things happen when you travel with a
significant other for the first time. I like both of these people, so
I hope that they quickly get over their rift.

4th Place: Marisa and Brooke

I don't know how they finished this high. They had trouble with the
wrestling, but did well with the marching band. Their taxi drivers
were really good. That's all I can say. Maybe they learned from their
poor performances in the first two legs.

3rd Place: Terence and Sarah

Not too much fighting this leg. Like Mark and Bill, they misread the
clue and took a cab to the detour, but unlike the nerds, they realized
their mistake before it was too late and went back and walked. They
came from way behind at the wrestling arena to finish in third, thanks
to a very good cabbie and a lot of hustle.

2nd Place: Toni and Dallas

Nothing special, just a solid and gritty performance from these two.
Dallas rocked the wrestling road block, and Toni managed to get through
the Detour better than one would have imagined.

1st Place: Ken and Tina

The leaders in the clubhouse once again. These two are the best team
on the race, despite their advanced age. Very impressive thus far.
