The Amazing Race 17 -- "A Kiss Saves the Day" -- 10/03/10

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
One team considers using their precious Express Pass after playful Ghanaian locals give some teams a headache while they struggle to complete the high-stakes roadblock, on THE AMAZING RACE.


The race continues tonight in Ghana

No doubleheader this week on CBS. There is 1 regional game that may affect the Florida market & some parts of the East (Indianapolis/Jacksonville) that starts at 4:05pm ET if it runs long.

I had Indy/Jacksonville. It's about a ten minute pad.

I still always ask...is there a rule on sales challenges that you say, I'll sell for this amt and pay you back -wink wink - plus more if necessary.

Either/or, I've never liked the sales challenges. They're lame and boring.

I totally want to be buried in one of those coffins.

The coffins were cool!

I wonder how many times the nerdy dudes said "Sir"?

I loved the woman who did that little dance and then left without paying for the sunglasses.

I'm glad the beauty pageant gal is still in the race. She is a trip!

The nerdy guys aren't making Princeton look very good. Couldn't even install a TV antenna. The state of Ivy league schools has seriously degraded.

Plus, they quit after barely trying. Pussies.

Glad Little Miss Sunshine made it. Her varying emotions make great tv!

Very fun episode, but I hated the sun glasses challenge. I think it's dumb for the producers of this show to make contestants sell such a frivilous item, especially in a poor country like Ghana. I'm sure 98% of the people walking around in that market have no interest in buying a cheap pair of sun glasses on any given day.

I love Claire and Brook (the shopping hosts) They have such a great attitude and it didn't surprise Brook kicked ass selling those glasses.

The Asian father and son (Michael and Kevin) surprised me this leg. Obviously his age and aching are going to hurt them soon, but he did a surprisingly good job with the glasses challenge.

Whew! That Nat and Kat managed to hang around.

I love how bubbly Mallory is. Hope that she and her Dad manage to hang around awhile.

When Connor and Jonathan freaked out after their cab driver invented a "3rd lane" Those roads in Ghana would scare the piss out of me.

Yeah, what a surprise a skinny blond white chick giving kisses kicked ass selling sunglasses. I found it more humorous that she likely attributes her sales to her professional skills.

I don't like these sale challenges. They don't let the teams beg for money anymore and all the sales challenges come down to are players begging again. The air-headed tattoo couple did a lot better than I expected. I figured they would be gone after this episode.

That's exactly why it didn't surprise me. Young hot blonde flirty chick + horny black guys= sales

That's why I couldn't believe it took the blond chick with pigtails so long. She is easily the hottest one on the show, yet it seemed to take her the longest of all of the girls.

I'm sure it helped to be a blonde, but she was also very enthusiastic, very confident and she got there before most the other teams, grabbing the easiest buyers.

In those terms, the most impressive had to be the Asian father who also sold his glasses very fast without any of those things going for him, except for getting there early.

So far I'm really enjoying this season. Even the somewhat annoying teams aren't completely despicable. On the flip side none of the teams really stand out as likable either.

I agree. Nobody's really bugging the crap out of me yet. It's nice.
