Poor Chip and Kim. They make a strategic move to help eliminate the biggest threat in the race and level the playing field a bit and while it does put Colin and Christie behind the eight-ball, it doesn't actually put them out of the race. And despite the fact that the other teams left in it agreed to use the yield card, it's Chip and Kim who put themselves out to be picked off and bringing about the wrath of Colin.
There was a lot of wrath of Colin to go around this week. But it was nothing compared to what a lunatic Christie became when they are suddenly bumped into last place. Her telling the tax i driver just to run people over so they can get back into the race? You know, when it takes Colin to calm you down and look rational, something is seriously wrong. And then--at the plowing detour, she does nothing to help. Never crosses her mind that maybe she should help lead the ox through the field. Colin's meltdown was pretty much predictable (his comment that his ox was broken was hilarious) but totally understandable since Christie was next to useless in the task. I have a feeling the two gave up a lot of the relationship ground they gained last week when Colin admitted he should let Christie read the map and he should drive.
As for the bowling moms, I have to admit Karen isn't portrayed in the best light here. She seems a bit whiny in the car after the arguement with Linda about reading the map. And it is just me or does Linda seem to do most of the road block challenges?
All I can say is--all these pent up hostitilities between teams should make for one entertaining season finale next week.
