The Amazing Race 17 -- "Ali Baba in a Suit" -- 11/14/10

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
The race continues in Oman, but one team oversleeps and must then play catch up. Later, Chad proposes to Stephanie and the duos take part in a challenge that requires them to climb a rock mountain.


Episode 8 of 12

No CBS doubleheader this week. However, If your CBS affiliate is getting the Kansas City/Denver game in the East with a 4:05pm start, there is a small possibility you will have to pad.

Is it weird that, for a guy who finds most reality TV idiotic, and after all these seasons, TAR is still one of my most anticipated shows of the week?

A mere 35 minute pad will do it, at least in Detroit.

Hilarious when the goat started eating the punkrocker's clue.

Sorry to see Gary and Mallory and their positive attitude go. That having been said, I'm glad Nat and Kat got to stay.

I guess the "lesson" that Nick learned in Ghana didn't take.

I kinda figured Chad for a stadium scoreboard proposal person.

I hope they show the departure times next episode, it looked like some of those teams were really behind.

It did go from bright to dark in the 30 min penalty.

Interesting leg. It sucked to see Gary and Mallory go. I loved her bubbly energy, but they have only themselves to blame for not asking for directions and getting themselves lost. It frustrates me to see teams drive around aimlessly.

Glad I don't live in Oman. You really have to conserve your household water over there considering you have to order it.

I'm hoping that Nat and Kat make a comeback. It looks like they are a few hours behind the head of the pack, so anything is possible.

I had to laugh when Nick got pissed off at Vicky for giving the other team directions and he kept saying..."Shut Up!"

The omani's they met seemed super friendly, that was a great advertisement for Oman

In Nick's defense (did I really just type those words), it was clear that both Nick and Vicki and Brook and Claire thought they were the last two teams. Helping out the other at that point is probably a bad idea.

So you can miss your start time by two hours because you overslept and STILL win the leg?

Fuck bunching.

We picked up on that also. Maybe his son(s) are sissy boys.
