King of the Nerds 3/13/15--"The Nerdtastic Finale" summary



Previously on “King of the Nerds”: the teams were disbanded and the nerds had to compete individually. The Nerd War was a game where you get a category and take turns naming items in the category, but with nerd subjects ranging from the drivers in Mario Kart 8 to elements of the periodic table. Ben somehow managed to do really well and win immunity. Lily and Amanda were the worst, and had to battle for immediate elimination. Amanda lost. The Nerd-Off was a game of Stratego, and it ended up being Raychelle and Lily. Lily is the weakest player in the house, but it turns out she plays Stratego a lot so she managed to win. Eh. Then all the eliminated contestants came back because the finale involves voting and popularity for some reason. (click for more)

TAR26, Recap Leg 4, 3/13/15



Welcome to Leg 4! Last time, on At Least the Airport Drama Was Interesting, teams raced from Japan to Phuket. Plane tickets were hard to come by, and Harley and Jonathan ended up half a day behind everyone else. Well they would have been, if the other teams hadn’t found HoH and a bed and breakfast waiting for them. After ziplining with food, teams dressed up for a drag show. Cue a LOT of overcompensating complaining from some of the men, especially Tyler. At the Pit Stop, Matt proposed to Ashley in front of pretty much everyone. Harley and Jonathan did end up in last, but were saved by the first non-elimination leg. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)

King of the Nerds 3/6/15--"Invasion of the Nerd Snatchers" summary



Previously on “King of the Nerds”: Jonathan missed Heather so much he decided to volunteer as tribute if Team SMASH lost the Nerd War, which ended up being about forensics and crime scene science. SMASH lost, partially due to a failure to read directions which is sad. The “suspects” in this crime were all classic horror movie monsters, so Lily got the idea that the Nerd-Off would be about classic horror movies. Amanda knows classic horror, so then Lily took it upon herself to get Amanda to volunteer instead of Jonathan. I’m a little suspicious of Lily’s motives here, because it seemed like a lot of work on her part just to get rid of Colby. Everyone listened to her, which is dumb, but it worked in their favor because they DID have to know classic horror movies for the Nerd-Off. And then Colby was eliminated and it was a sad time.

TAR26, Recap Leg 3, 3/6/15



Welcome to Leg 3! Last time, on One of These Days, YDCs Might Be Interesting, teams raced to Nagano, Japan.  Bergen and Kurt argued, while Rochelle hurt herself being pushed on ice in a chair.  The blind dating couples continued to excel, which led to the elimination of Libby and CJ, so they can go argue about not being married somewhere else.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

TAR26, Recap Leg 2, 2/27/15



Welcome to Leg 2! Last time, on Fake Samurai Hanging Out in Sake Bars, 11 teams of YDCs raced from California to Tokyo, Japan.  Apparently we needed to be reminded that five of the couples don’t even know each other.  There is dancing and sake drinking for the bulk of a ninety minute episode, and a Double U-Turn that really meant very little in the end.  The Lawyers got the Express Pass, and Jeff and Lyda, the old couple, were eliminated for not Bald Snarking a Detour when they should have.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

TAR26, Recap Leg 1, 2/25/15



Welcome to Leg 1! Welcome to The Amazing Race: YDC Edition!  This time around, the producers have found six dating couples that have been going out from anywhere from 7 months to 10 years, as well as 10 singles who will be paired into five blind date teams to round out the cast.  The show begins with a montage of all the “wonderful” couples we’ve gotten to know over the years.  (Toyouke: “Wow, thanks for this montage reminding me of how much I hate YDCs generally.  The more you tell me how awesome this idea is, the more I hate it and assume you KNOW it sucks and are trying to ram it down my throat anyway.”)  Anyway, instead of having the teams arrive in some wacky manner, they just have them standing ready to go.  Or at least the six dating couples and half of the singles.  How boring, TAR producers.  So the eleven teams are: (click for more)

King of the Nerds 2/27/15--"Murder at Nerdvana!?" summary



Previously on “King of the Nerds”: we had party games that were actually kind of fun. Hooloovoo won, which seemed lame but whatever. The secret alliance knew someone would have to be in the Nerd-Off because there are not enough other people left, but then Heather was all “Oh, I could never choose between Amanda and Jonathan! You guys choose!” And then she went right over to the other team to tell them to vote for Jonathan. When he found out he flipped on his alliance (along with Raychelle) and brought Kaitlin into his plans. Kaitlin got her team to vote for Heather, meaning she got Lily and Ben to ignore the girls. Heather went up against Colby (of course he got voted in because he could win this whole thing) and then Heather lost so now she’s gone! Yay! (click for more)
