joining 10 minutes in progress because I totally suck as a blogger…
Team QVC starts off by kissing an Englishman in a tractor, apparently, this is a big deal for them. Turns out they will use kissing to get them through the rest of the leg too. The teams have flown to Ghana and are confronted with the poverty. And now have to sell sunglasses – because rich Americans shilling to poor Africans makes perfect sense… Team QVC is beyond giddy, because, you know, they KNOW how to sell.
Dad and Daughter are stuck in a broken-down taxi. Tattoo Dude cannot sell for shit. Not-surprisingly, team QVC is selling, though they are mostely doing it by offering to kiss the locals. Chad gets on his knees and tries to hug a girl, but she just follows him to the ground… very weird. Weirder still is the clearly high woman Jill is trying to sell to. She has to keep her from falling down or getting hit on the head.
Tattoo Dude becomes an attraction, but no buyers are biting. Meanwhile, Team QVC is done and they have to move on to a motor-bike parts store. Me thinks they might have a harder time there….
Team YouTube is done, surprising even Team YouTube! Chad is totally putting all his eggs in the one girl basket, but eventually, she gives him the extra 1$ he needs and can move on.
Tune in or Check out: make a TV antenna work or make the *dopest* coffins EVA! (one looks like a giant camera, the other a giant fish!) Team QVC opts for the antenna: they do quick work of installing it and move onto the wiring portion of the task. Team YouTube and Team Glee are both trying to find the motorparts store. Somehow, Chad and Stephanie get there first, Team YouTube is clearly in the wrong place…..
The VolleyBall chicks opt for the crazy coffins, seriously, friggin cool! The inside wiring jobs of some teams remind me of stealing cable in college.
Meanwhile, back at the market, team Bio, team Tattoo and father-daughter are still trying to sell the sunglasses. Team Grey’s Anatomy finally gets some air time, but they are sucking at the selling, so are Jill and Thomas. A woman steals glasses from Team Tattoo, clearly, he’s not that scary. She ends up buying them, but it’s sad to watch. Team Grey’s is in last place.
Team Grey’s FINALLY sells their glasses and moves on, meanwhile, there is tv antennas being adjusted: one person perched on a rickity latter, the other inside the house, yelling at each other… ah, memories of the late 70’s at the country house… Team QVC gets a signal and move on to the Kaneshie market to the pit stop. That seems so fast.
Volley Ball girls are delivering their piano-coffin while Team Glee choses the antenna and begin the task. Other teams are antenna-assembling, team YouTube is done, so are Chad and Stephanie.
Team Bio bond over double-jointed-ness and frizzy hair. Am I the only one uncomfortable at watching them get to know each other?
Camera-coffin delivery, while team Tattoo opt for the antenna. Team QVC is dropped off at the market, but finding Phil is going to be SUPER HARD. Team Volley Ball is here too, but team QVC is team #1 – they win a 10-day trip to Hawaii. Volley Ball girls are team #2.
Team glee are not geeky enough and are struggling with the antenna, they give up and move onto the coffins…. idiots. Team YouTube is #3. Jill and Thomas deliver one big-ass camera-coffin, while Chad and Stephanie arrive fourth.
Dad and daughter are lost and have to turn around, Bio-team is also lost. Team Glee takes a second shot at the detour by moving a giant fish-coffin. Team Tattoo gets a signal and are done with the antenna. Jill and Thomas finish, but this is all so blah and boring, really, I don’T care. Just tell me when it’s over, there is no suspense and I don’t care about any of these people, since it’s now clear my early favorites, Team Grey’s, will not win it all.
Giant Fish Coffin delivered, other giant fish coffins runs over Christina of Team Grey, they seem to have gained some time, because Bio-team is behind them. African Traffic, the closest we will come to suspense on this episode. Well, would you look at that: Meredith and Christina get their taxi driver to move and they are seemingly gaining ground – they might not be out yet.
These taxi drivers remind me of a good Frogger game. Team Glee thinks they might have soiled themselves, but they find the mat, seemingly with dry pants. Team Grey’s joins them on the mat, respectively teams 6 and 7. OK, so I might still have a chance with Mer and Christina. Team Tattoo is 8, but I don’t give a shit.
It’s between father/daughter and Bio-Team. The dad and daughter are 9th. Sad slow music, bye-bye Bio-Team, schmalzy goodbyes.
This episode was so blah, I have nothing to add.
