MJ of Shahs Felony
Last night on the Shahs of Sunset Reunion Reza outed MJ as a felon. You can read more about that here in a previous blog. It was a long time ago, she paid her time, and IMO should be allowed to move on. I don’t understand how Reza can call MJ his best friend and then treat her like that. Whose side are you on?
We also had a huge rehash of the fight between GG and Asa that lasted the entire season. Should Asa accept GG’s apology and move on?

Kenya shows up at the BaileyAgency bringing along her protégé for Cynthia’s agency and to be in the pageant. I have to hand it to Kenya, with every opportunity presented she tries at least to contribute. First with the production deal, now with a possible model in the making. They start talking about Cynthia’s pageant. Cynthia tells her she cut Porsha out of the event. Cynthia has invited Boris Kodjoe to cohost the event. Kenya volunteers to be a judge and Cynthia brings up the past and Kenya feels she should put the past in the past. Cynthia changes her mind and says she would love for Kenya to be a judge. Kenya promises to be on her best behavior at Cynthia’s pageant but then laughs hysterically in her TH.
Kordell & Porsha are ordering dinner. Apparently Kordell orders Porsha’s drink too. First Porsha wants Sprite then Kordell convinces her to order wine. Porsha says she has a lot going on and asks Porsha how he thinks she’s been doing while she’s been away from the house working with the foundation. Kordell asks if Porsha is ready to take care of children. Porsha says she doesn’t want to put her career on hold. What career? She’s been saying she was a housewife. Porsha wants a nanny so she can work outside the home and that conflicts with Kordell’s old fashioned sensibilities. Porsha has an idea to call her brother to borrow his baby to see how she’ll do as a mom. I’m not sure how I’d feel loaning out my baby for a trial run. First Kordell agrees and says two weeks then Porsha says one week. Porsha say cheers to having it all.
Chef Roble is cooking for Apollo, the lawyer, Todd & Kandi. Apparently Kandi knows Chef Roble. They requested some aphrodisiac type food. Chef Roble thinks mussels look like vaginas. The lawyer is impressed that he doesn’t use street jargon to describe genitalia. They are planning a girls’ trip to Vegas to meet Nene because Vegas is close to LA. Kandi tells them about her gospel music and they are all positive about it. The avocado bruschetta looks good. Then steamed vagina, I mean mussels, are up and Apollo wants to stick his tongue in it. When Chef Roble asks if the aphrodisiac is kicking in, of course Miss High Class lawyer waves her tongue around.
Kandi is in the music studio. She comes from a very religious background having a preacher for a father and a grandfather too. Marvin Sapp shows up in Atlanta to do a gospel record with Kandi because he loved the song she wrote. Kandi felt they had a common bond losing someone close to them recently. Titus, Kandi’s father shows up and Kandi mentions he knows about Kandi Koated Nights and Bedroom Kandi. IMO it may not be a religious product but there is no shame in religious people using those products especially the ones that vibrate.
Nene is back in Atlanta and Cynthia comes over. Cynthia tells Nene that she is letting Kenya judge her pageant. Nene is giving her a look like “you’re kidding.” Cynthia says she was Miss USA. Nene says she doesn’t give a damn if she was Miss Boo Boo. The point is she acted a damn fool at the magazine thing and Cynthia defends her by saying this is her world. Kenya is supposed to be role model. Nene says a fool is a fool and she doesn’t need someone wrecking something she is doing for the first time. Nene is missing Atlanta, the events and all the gossip. Cynthia is hoping this pageant turns out well and Nene supports her. Cynthia is missing Nene’s support and glad she is back in town even if it is only for a few hours.
Porsha manages to get her hands on her brother’s child Baby Jaden. She’s doing good so far with changing the diapers until she leaves the dirty diaper on the floor for Kordell (ahem, the cleaning staff) to pick up. Porsha changes into sweats to cook dinner. Porsha turns her back for a minute and Baby Jaden disappears for a moment. There was one panic stricken moment until Jaden comes back into the kitchen. Was this all the interesting footage they got out of Porsha? Snore…
Kandi is in the music studio recording her gospel song with Marvin. As soon as Marvin lays down the track, Kandi wants to redo her track. They are all excited.
It is the day of the pageant and there’s a lot of makeup, dresses and tables around. Cynthia is picking up Boris and he’s wearing casual top and jeans. Cynthia sees it as a sign that something is going to go wrong. Why didn’t he think to wear a suit? He is a cohost for goodness sake. Kenya shows up wearing her Miss USA sash. Kandi in her TH is talking about Kenya being in her full…full…uhhmmm…Miss USA. Oh yeah that’s right. As Cynthia and the staff sit down to go over the details everyone realizes their pages are not in the right order. They think they fix it but I doubt it. First Cynthia forgets to talk into her microphone. Fun fashion category starts. These girls know how to work it. Boris gets the name wrong and Cynthia realizes the order of the script is wrong again. Gee, I wonder which naughty little Bravo production assistant did that. Kenya is shaking her head but says it’s her first pageant what do you expect. Porsha shows up with Baby Jaden and a nanny. Ssshhh don’t tell Kordell. They cut for an intermission and then they realize they forgot the teen fun fashion segment. Sorry folks, stay in your seats for the teen fun fashion segment and then intermission starts. Kenya goes back stage to give moral support to Cynthia. They start the question and answer section of the pageant and these girls are doing pretty well. Porsha sees herself in the pageant because she loves dresses that sparkle. I wonder how she’d do in the Q&A section. As they tally the votes Cynthia and Boris didn’t have a script to keep people entertained. Awkward laugh, awkward silence from Cynthia. Clearly the stars of the show were the girls because Cynthia was a dud. Someone take that mic away from her. Cynthia and Boris do what they do best and do a runway walk. Clearly that is where their talents lie. Boris does a little comedy routine about pageant walks. They announce the winner. Selena is Miss Renaissance. Cynthia feels she’s happy she did it. Kenya remembers that she was up there once upon a time. They all offer their congratulations to Cynthia and Cynthia is grateful for their support.
Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Blogs Blogged by HildogAtl
(Text in italics is excerpted from Bravotv.com Cast blogs. NMD)
Well ladies, it’s seems even after a week hiatus, the RHOA ladies aren’t wanting to blog any longer. I must say, I looked up last season to see how many episodes and was floored to see last season was the longest season in all of the franchises. I think they ran for almost 5-6 months. I can’t recall but that is a very long time. Needless to say, we only have our resident “hot mess” and our resident “silly chick that has some vocabulary issues”. Ok, that was a little harsh but I’m seriously curious if she isn’t playing a role for tv or something. I’ve never met anyone like her in my life!
Kenya begins her blog telling us she knows that when she signed up to do the show that she would have to share some personal experiences with us no matter how painful they are. She tells us that her world was turned upside down when she discovered the lumps in her breasts and that she basically blocked the whole thing out b/c of fear. That is her coping mechanism. She tells us that she has lost family members to cancer and all of the what if’s scared the dickens out of her. I can only imagine the pain and fear that she must have felt when that was discovered. No woman in this world wants to hear those words.
She goes on to tell us it was her aunt who forced her to face her fears and that they researched the best doctor to help. The doctor was informative, caring and compassionate and answered all of the questions she had. She tells us the biopsy wasn’t necessarily painful but uncomfortable. She also tells us that she was grateful that the results came back as benign but nonetheless, due to the lumps she has to be checked more regularly and aggressively to make sure the lumps do not turn cancerous.
The whole five pages that Kenya blogs is all about cancer and early detection, etc. She doesn’t touch much on any of her cast mates this week and in some ways, I can understand. To her this was a very difficult time in her life. I know regardless if I agree with her or not, nobody deserves this disease. The small blurb she did write about the cast is as follows:
“I was disappointed when none of my cast mates reached out to me after learning of my ordeal when many viewers did. Whether or not I am your favorite or least favorite person, the bond that we all have is that we are women first. I’m a woman before I am any other identifying marker such as race, social status, popularity, occupation, or religious background. I am a woman. I am a child of God and I am blessed. With that said, I beg all women to get a mammogram.”
Porsha has a doozy of a blog today too! Wow, it’s long…5 pages long. I think these two took a chapter out of the RHONJ and Jac. Wow. Ok, let’s jump into it!
She begins telling us about her past weekend and how she is so busy and was lucky to get to the spa. She is working on an interior design something. Great, another HW item! Then she goes on to tell us that her Mom and sis are her best people to go to for fashion advice as they always have an opinion and she values it.
“Next up you meet my amazing niece, Jaydnn! I promise that my little poo bear normally loves her auntie, and in reality she still loved me then, she just didn’t want to look at me, touch me, or hear my voice that day. I wanted my sister to bring her so I could start keeping her more often and get used to handling business as well as errands with a little one. After all I went everywhere with my mom, so I’m guessing my mini me will be the same way! Well I guess you all saw how the beginning of that day went, this week you will get to see how it is when I bring her home. I have to say I’m starting to realize that to make this picture perfect I may end up needing a nanny just to help fill in a little. We shall see…”
(Side note-there were several comments in her blog from viewers chastising her for that last line.) Personally, I think if you have the means, do it. I have long said I really don’t think I can be the woman to work a full time job, take care of my home and man and still provide and be there for my child full time without some help. But that is my opinion and while I don’t have any children now, I know how tired I am at the end of the day without a child in the equation. Children require all of your time and attention and I commend all the women out there that can do it and also do it on their own!
She then goes on to tell us that she trekked down to Ms. Bailey’s agency and as soon as she walked in she could feel the tension and knew that something was up. She had no clue it had to do with not allowing strangers in her home.
“I must say I threw Kordell’s name in the mix to add to my response, but in actuality I made the decision not to have it in my home on my own. I sincerely felt if she didn’t want to meet at her office, fine, and I even offered to pay for lunch elsewhere anytime, but to turn my home into an office? Um, no. It was something I thought was a small and private conversation with Ms. Bailey as a friend. How quickly I learned that all things discussed in private aren’t so private with her.
I thought after talking to her it was simple and easy. I just made the decision not to have all her staff come over and it was done. We would meet at her place of business. But no, I was attacked and spoken to by the Bailey workers in a way that to me was inappropriate, asking why I run my home a certain way. I was bothered, so I took my husband’s advice to check the situation by letting her know how it made me feel and making sure it didn’t go any further than that. After all, I was helping for free and I was also involving my family’s charity so that many people in need could benefit from a percentage of the pageant.”
Ok, I’m going to play devil’s advocate I suppose. On one hand, I think the whole situation is just stupid and completely blown out of proportion but there is a chance this was her best storyline for the season…I’m not sure. And yes, I do find it a little odd that she doesn’t allow “strangers” in the house but she knew Cynthia. However, I, too would be a little leery of people coming to my gorgeous mini mansion and how people need to use the restroom and sometimes something shiny might catch their eye and temptation gets the best. It happens everyday people. Even the most trust worthy can and are blinded by the bling so to speak. But enough on that. I think it was completely classless, rude and unprofessional that Cynthia would allow her “staff” to speak to a contributor and “friend” in that manner. It was despicable.
“This relationship was supposed to work two ways. Number one I had my family create an outreach event specifically for Cynthia’s pageant participants so that they would have the opportunity to be hands on in giving. They were supposed to come the Saturday before the pageant and make lunches with fresh produce and hand deliver them to the people we had solicited to be at the outreach event created for her. Number two Cynthia was going to donate ten percent of proceeds to Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless. This collaboration would have also benefited the pageant in that she could use the charity’s affiliation to solicit money from sponsors and help with securing an event space. Having the charity involved was of great value to the pageant.”
Funny that Bravo didn’t show that now isn’t it. Cynthia is “shady” (allegedly). I see it, you see it, we all see it. She then sets the record straight by informing us that when she went to lunch with her “friend” she was appalled that she was being removed from helping. Porsha tells us that Cynthia only gave her family’s organization two weeks to get her documents when on the backside Hosea Feed The Hungry had an army of volunteers on the back end doing things to make this even take place but Cynthia only cared about logos, which she could have gotten online. (I agree, it’s very, very simple).
“I was looking at what I thought was a friend and someone I put myself and my family charity out there for just to see her win, and what did I get? Nothing but a sorry excuse for why she has decided to turn her back on the thousand people who would have benefitted from receiving fresh produce and groceries as well as donations. What do I decide to do? Move on and let her sit where she is. I’m not going to teach someone how to care. I’d rather let her have her way and figure out an immediate plan to salvage the outreach for all those expecting it and learn from my mistakes. I do care for and Iove Cynthia, but this has proven to me that you can’t lend yourself to people without knowing their motives. I have decided to forgive but not forget how this made feel and how serious it is not to involve the charity with people you can’t depend on.”
There really are no words, they pretty much speak for themselves.
She then switches gears and tells us the event planner for Kordell’s party and how fabulous it was. She then ends reminding us she is a real housewife by having to thaw steaks and salmon for dinner but she hasn’t decided on her side items. I may catch some slack for this but honestly, she seems like the only “real” housewife out of all of those ladies. Everyone else has businesses, etc…she truly is a housewife!
Have a great week ladies and I’d also like to request that you all say a little prayer for my family. I have had a trying weekend and while we are trying to stay positive, it’s hard to not stop thinking about all the adversity ahead. The devil is definitely trying to rear it’s ugly head and wreck havoc. Thanks in advance!
The Amazing Race – Feb 17, 2013 – by MelTheHound
- Idries and Jamil Abdur-Rahman are twin brothers from Chicago, Ill. Both men are OB/GYN doctors. These are Twins. I really hope these guys aren’t as annoying as the last set of twins we were subjected to.
- Max and Katie Bichler are newlyweds from Buffalo, N.Y. It’s wrong to judge a book by it’s cover, I know that but I’m looking at this guy and already I’m thinking douche bag. Hopefully, I’m wrong.
- Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere are mothers from Colorado. They are also roller derby teammates. I tend to like the Roller Derby Queens.
- Bates and Anthony Battaglia are brothers from Raleigh, N.C. The brothers are professional hockey players.
- Chuck and Wynona McCall (Alabama) are a married couple from Daphne, Ala. Chuck is a taxidermist and his wife is a hairstylist. Here is a couple who look exactly like who they are to me. I saw her and the first two words out of my mouth were Wynona Judd.
- David and Connor O’Leary (Utah) are a father and son team from Salt Lake City. Both are cancer survivors.
- Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Kuhle are friends and country singers in a band. Caroline is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone and Jennifer is the granddaughter of John Wayne. Never heard of either of these ladies.
- Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena (YouTubers) are friends from Los Angeles. They list their occupation as YouTube hosts. Dude, wash the shit out of your hair and drag a comb through it.
- Pamela Chien and Winnie Sung (Besties) are best friends from Los Angeles.
- Jessica Hoel and John Erck (Surfers) are a dating couple from Huntington Beach, Calif. Aren’t they cute.. Does this dating couple (on TAR) ever end well for these people?
- Matthew Davis and Daniel Moss are firefighters from Gaffney, S.C. Why am I getting a Border Patrol agent vibe from these guys?
You can read more about them here… There you have it my friends. The cast that will or won’t entertain us for the next couple months. Each of those cast member links should take you to the CBS website where the photos are hosted.
Welcome back race fans to season 22 of TAR. A few weeks ago I sent you a preview with a cast list shown within this recap. Without knowing anything about any of them, this is a fresh slate for me (until I actually see them on screen). Let’s get this 12 or 13 week party started.
The show opens with all 11 teams jogging up the hill to the Griffith Observatory while they are all introduced. I’m going to spit this out there right now. I hate the newlyweds, the surfers and, the YouTubers right away. That may change by the end of the episode or it may never change. We’ll see. They get to the top and meet up with Phil where he welcomes them and lays out the ground rules for the first few legs. By ground rules you know the usual stuff. He tells them that the winner of the first leg gets an express pass but also another to give to another team. That pass must be given away but the end of the 4th leg. Now he says that the first leg of the race will take them to someplace they’ve never been before and the challenge will literally take their breathe away. I suspect it has something to do with heights and breathtaking views but that’s just a guess on my part. Phil points out the eleven Ford Fusions at the bottom of the hill (where all of their backpacks also are). They are to drive to LAX and their destination will be disclosed while they drive there.
Ready – Set – GO!
The race is on, down the hill to collect their backpacks and grab a car. Alabama Chuck trips over himself and takes someone else out at the same time (I know the feeling). No harm other than the producers chose to show that moment. They are in their cars and off and running. Phil comes on the screen and tells them they are going to Bora Bora. There are two flights, one hour arrival apart (if everything goes right). Here’s the first rub… There is only room on the first plane for 5 teams. All along they are already angling to make alliances, and suck up to each other, the ones each thinks may actually win the leg (it never works out that way, does it?). Alabama is the first to check in at the ticket counter and get their tickets for flight 101. Next to check in are Besties (Winnie and Pam- Winnie by the way is only interested in a guy if he has a million dollars strapped to his body- both are single). They are followed by the doctors who were on the same shuttle bus. Surfers and Utah are 4th and 5th. Right now the order of the rest don’t matter because they will be on the second flight. Both groups are trying to angle alliances (which never last) to see who is going to suck up to who to get that second express pass. Noting, with the Newlyweds, that they don’t have many friends because HER likeability factor is about zero. I suspect his is too. I know people like her (or what they are saying she is) and have words for them. We’ll see if she really fits those.
Both planes are on their way to the connecting city, Papeete Tahiti, to catch another plane. While the first 5 teams are there they discuss alliance and that second express pass. The suggestion (by doctors, don’t know which one, twins and Utah) is that whoever among them wins the first leg, they give the pass to the second placing team in that alliance. Got all that? They do the 10 person fist pile to shake on it. This is all assuming that one of them actually wins the leg. Their plane leaves for Bora Bora and we don’t see the second team arrive but we are told they are also on the way to Bora Bora.
Their first task when they arrive is a roadblock. They must sign in on a tote board in the order they can get to it for a charter flight on a helicopter. What they will do then is 2 ‘teams’ or rather one member from each team will be taken to the next location by Heli while the other member gets there by water taxi. The Heli will take them to 10,000 feet and they will jump out in a tandem sky dive to a location where they will meet up with their partners. Once that happens, they get their next clue. The first group arrives at the tote board and there’s a small scuffle to write names down. I’ll just note that Alabama is 5th to sign in (they were first to the airport back at LAX). I’m thinking that since there are 11 teams, 6 Helicopters, one team is going up alone. Will it be Alabama or will he have to wait for the others to arrive (that’s the way I would set it up just to torture somebody). Let’s see. John of Surfers is first to jump. Jamil (twins) is next. He says everything inside of him is telling him don’t jump (jumping out of a perfectly good helicopter) but, he does. Besties and Utah are the next to take off as we see Chuck (Alabama) standing there waiting for his ride. We see Conner of Utah jump (he had Testicular Cancer, the voice over is how proud daddy (who had prostrate cancer, both in remission) is. Next one of the besties. Don’t know which one at the moment. Finally, Chuck’s ride is there. He’s flying alone. I don’t know if they actually jumped in the order they signed in but it would make sense for them to have to.
The clue they receive tells them to take a water taxi to Eaton Beach where they have to follow a ‘marked’ path to get to the next clue. It’s a roadblock. This is where the hard part begins. Before them are 400 sand castles (one bucket sand castles. Under one of them, is their next clue (there are 11 clues buried here). They must find the clue AND, replace the sand castles they destroy looking for them. By the way, it’s over 100 degrees.. I’ll bet there’s no time for a refreshing dip in that clear Tahiti beach. By the way again, These are special sandcastle buckets. They have cups and dips and whatnot in the bottom of them and the castles have to be complete. Surfers and Doctors are doing it at this point, and having trouble with it.
Meanwhile, the second flight has arrived (the other 6 teams). Caroline from Country singers is the first to check in on the tote board. What happens at the end of this process is more important than the middle. While signing in, for what she thought was the 5th spot (or she wasn’t paying attention), Mona (Roller Derby), signed into the 6th spot. Before she caught on to what she had done, Newlyweds took the 5th spot and they ain’t giving it up. They will be on the same final, (helicopter but Newlyweds will be the first to jump from it.
Error Alert** (I have this a bit wrong but I’m not rewriting everything because the result is the same. Each team goes up in a separate helicopter. So Roller Derby should have been on the 5th one but are on the 6th due to Mona’s error).
Now back at the castles, Utah and Besties have arrived. Remember what I said about the ‘marked’ path? Well, Alabama Chuck didn’t listen. He better not wear her out too much because it will be Wynona who will be scouring the castle field looking for a clue. Want to know where Chuck works? Wallmart. Why do we know this? Because while not following instructions and asking anyone he can find on the beach, where the clue is, he explains in a TH that he deals with so many walks of life. Well, Chuck, I will bet you’ve never dealt with an old Tahitian woman sitting under a shelter cleaning oysters or clams (I’m not a seafood person so I don’t know which). Now… While walking around talking to people he does notice the place where the clue is BUT, he does Not follow the marked path (forgot to read the instructions, didn’t you Chuck?) but they go on about the task. Poor Winona. This isn’t going to end well for them. Jessica (Surfers) finds hers first. Now, all 5 teams currently digging are from the first flight. Their standing in the leg has changed but they are all there. Meanwhile, the others are dropping from the sky. Utah is hoping that whoever wins stays true to the alliance agreement.
Jessica opens the clue and it is to take them to the pit stop. They must assemble a balance to a canoe outrigger style (like a catamaran) and paddle it to the pit stop, one mile down the beach. Here’s the rub, it isn’t stable like a catamaran (I don’t know yet what the purpose of the outrigger is unless some didn’t attach it properly) and can easily tip over if you lean to the right, and does. I guess the trick is, if you have to lean, go left so the outrigging keeps you from tipping. Back at the castle field, the twin working on the castles is getting quite testy. His brother says that if a team from the second group shows up, twin is going to lose it.
Sidebar… These two sort of argue like the last set of twins we had to suffer but they aren’t nearly as annoying, yet.
The Hockey players show up. So now the second group is wandering in. Amongst all this, for some reason, there is a dog wandering about. Sorry but for the kid in me, this is the best part. Do you know what male dogs do with vertical objects when they are outside? That’s right, Sparky is pissing on random sand castles.
Go ahead, I cracked up for half an hour.
Okay, back to the building.. Country singers arrive and both they and Hockey players get busy. Twin is still bitching about the task, Wynona thought when she came to the beach in Tahiti they would have lounge chairs and vodka ready for her. That may be the case if you’re staying in a resort where they have service but not when you’re on the race (Chuck was kind of ribbing her about wanting to come to the beach, that’s where that came from. I think he should have left her alone. That woman looks short in stature but also the type that will throw you to the ground and stomp your guts out if you cross her one too many times). Now around this time, the Hockey players find the clue in like the second or third castle they turned up. From 7th to 2nd, just like that (but they aren’t part of that alliance). Surfers are currently set to win the leg but let’s see what really happens. Firemen and Newlyweds arrive next and get busy. Utah is convinced at this point that they just need to finish but he is not working on the castles (this should be his task because his son, jumped). Katie of Newlyweds is digging and isn’t happy because the outcome is pure luck that she cannot control. Did I mention that in their TH earlier, she’s a control freak?
I guess it pays to spend your life on the beach surfing the waves in this case because Surfers reach the Pit Stop first. For now, I’ve kind of changed my mind about them, they aren’t as annoying as they first appeared to be. The haven’t whined about anything yet and did seem to do the best job running this leg of the race. The guide standing with Phil welcomes them to Bora Bora and Phil hands them their Two express passes telling them, that is power in their hands. Surfer John reminds us of the alliance agreement to hand the second pass over to the next team from their alliance to reach the pit stop BUT, he’s not sure he wants to give up that advantage just yet.
We see the hockey players rowing toward the pit stop and at the same time, the YouTubers reaching the castle field followed by Roller Derby… Beth (Derby) says that building sand castles is where being a mom comes in handy. She fancies herself an expert at it. Meanwhile, Utah dad is taking another shot and decides he didn’t dig deep enough. He digs a little deeper and low and behold, there is a clue. Doctor is probably quite pissed, Chuck is taking pity on his wife and pouring water over her face to cool her and get the sand off. Firefighter is struggling while Beth (Derby) finds a clue. She doesn’t say anything, she just dashes off (this may have been a smart move on her part). Apparently being a mom paid off because they have gone from last place, to 4th behind Utah. Katie is getting annoyed and Doc is getting Pizzissed off that the YouTube dude won’t shut TFU. Well, YouTube finds the next clue and jumps around like a preschool girl having a hissy fit. (I still hate these people).
Down at the pit stop… Utah (Dave and Conner) arrive. They are in third place BUT, the second team of the alliance to arrive. So, per the agreement, they Should get that second pass. Will they? We shall see (this arrangement was Dave’s idea by the way. To avoid hard feelings about who got the pass, best persons should win it and in this case, that would be them).
Country is still plugging away at the sandcastles and Doc Finally gets a clue.I don’t know when the hell Besties got out of there but they are currently neck and neck with Derby moms in the water rowing toward the pit stop. At the building task, the docs are inner city and they don’t swim and don’t like the water.. Really? I’ll just leave the major opinions on the dog’s ears for this first recap. Wynona Also Finally finds a clue. So who is left digging? Firefighters and Newlyweds. At the pit stop, Besties (I must be tired and missed them leaving or I’ve already mentioned them finishing the castles) arrive 4th and Derby moms in 5th place (Chipendales made it to the end and almost won riding the middle of the pack, I like these ladies). Docs didn’t do a very good job of securing that outrigging (One or both of them cannot swim) and it comes apart and they get dumped into the water. Canoes not much wider than your ass will do that to you. Trust me, I know. Now they have to put their boat back together (weren’t these checked before they got in the water?). YouTube passes them by taking 6th place. Alabama takes 7th place and Phil questions Chuck about his hair. All business in front, party in the back.. The Mullet and a curly one at that… Docs finally arrive as well and take 8th place.
Meanwhile (again) the other three teams (firefighters, newlyweds, and country singers) are struggling. Newlywed Katie floats the idea of taking the penalty. The idea is floated for all three teams to do it and race to the end of the leg and start fresh on the race the following day. Sounds reasonable to me, let’s see what happens. Firefighters are first in the water, they climb into the boat, and they are the first back in the water tipping over. Newlyweds are next and country singers. Newlyweds get out of there first (this is a real race folks 😀 ). Country is next and they are speeding along quite nicely gaining on Newlyweds. Firefighters are bringing up the rear and get a nice big drink of that water again.
That is the order they finish. Newlyweds 9th, Country 10th, Firefighters 11th and last. This is an elimination round and the firefighters are gone. I won’t get the chance to find out why I got a border patrol vibe from them or if I was all wrong about them (probably the case). If the firefighters hadn’t taken the penalty they may have still been in the race if they finished in less than 4 hours from the time they decided to do the penalty. Got that? They note that it seemed like a good idea at the time and were sure they could win a canoe race, especially against Girls. Maybe they could if they could stay in the thing. They are never going to live down, back at the firehouse, the fact that they got beat rowing a canoe by two Girls 😉
Next week kiddies, we are still in Bora Bora and that alliance comes in to play.
Til then, Peace..

PS.. Again, I am not going back to rewrite it. I don’t know now if Chuck and Wynona (Alabama) didn’t follow the path or if they just got confused at the end of it. Apparently if they didn’t, it wasn’t a hard fast rule. Phil didn’t mention it at the pit stop. Lucky them. I would have really felt bad for Wynona if they had to do that all over again.
