The Amazing Race: Can I Get A Hot Tub
April 25, 2015 5:26 AM - Season 26, Episode 8 - Subscribe

Five teams race from Namibia to Amsterdam on a race around the world.

This leg featured a clog-bike, pigeons and wildebeests, posing and primping, painted clogs, math errors, a lady knitting socks amidst the chaos at the clog challenge, Blair’s on-point below-the-radar sarcasm, bikes on ferries, fear of tents, hot-tub boats, Dutch shuffleboard, frustration, awesome costumes on locals, unnecessary (but fun!) costumes on racers, necessary blurring, rebus puzzling (and puzzling rebuses), windmills, and 43 attempts by one team at the road block.

No one was eliminated.

Blair, you just keep doing you. Ditto that for Jelani. They both seem like such reasonable people who are total Zachs to their assigned Flos. It's possible that Jenny (maybe) and Hayley (nope...never mind) are getting rough edits, but at this point I highly doubt it.

Laura and Tyler are refreshingly functional, though. (T: "I may pee in here just to warm it up. " L: "I already did.")

I thought the Dutch shuffleboard dudes were great! Maybe it was whatever was in their clay pipes, but they were an affable bunch.

I want a hot tub boat.

Are we ready to start handicapping the finals yet?

The other two speed-bumped teams this season did not survive their SB legs, so that doesn't bode well for Matt & Ashley. And the Truckstop team has been plodding and lackluster, so I don't think they'll make the final three either,

So Jelani and Jenny, Blair and Hayley, and Tyler and Laura -- all Blind Date teams -- and I would not be surprised to see Blair and Hayley win the race. That's my call.

Are we ready to start handicapping the finals yet?

Of the five remaining teams, everyone has come in 6th or worse in at least one leg. Every team has won at least one leg and no team has won more than 2. I think Laura & Tyler are going to keep their streak going and win the whole thing. I'd be happier with the truckstop team winning, though.
