TAR26, Recap Leg 6, 4/10/15



Welcome to Leg 6! Last time, on Let’s Wear Lederhosen For No Apparent Reason!, teams raced from Thailand to Munich, Germany.  Bergen and Kurt continue to fall apart, while other teams appear to be functional.  Well, except Hayley and Blair who need a prescription for new partners.  At any rate, it’s the Olympians who make their way to first and win 2 Ford Foci for their efforts, and Kurt’s ridiculous decision to continue forward without the provided car the led to his team’s elimination and breakup.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

TAR26, Recap Leg 5, 4/3/15



Welcome to Leg 5! Last time, on Wait, When Was the Last Episode of This Show?, teams raced from Phuket to Bangkok, Thailand.  The blind date teams started to fall apart, and Rochelle managed to beat the boys at a mechanics Roadblock.  Bergen and Kurt somehow end up in first, while Matt and Ashley get hopelessly lost.  Thankfully, this was still not enough for Harley and Jonathan to catch up, and they were eliminated.  Please don’t go, girl!  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

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?
