Amazing Race - 10/20/2013 - Norway

Probably another non-elim as they are continuing after the pit-stop. I thought it might be when Phil mentioned that the coins would be needed 'later in the race'.

Pinky really showed her true colors when she was offered help in exchange for the Express Pass. Not that she should have given it up, but her attitude towards ER couple when she was offered help.

That showed me that they will promise anything with absolutely no plans to stick to it and should not be trusted under ANY circumstances!

The beard dudes were funny when she offered them the pass. <paraphrasing> "We have heard her offer it to every team. She can stick the pass."

Why would the baseball chicks pick another challenge with a hammer?

We thought it was great that they played the Fish Head song during the credits. We were singing it as they talked about the challenge.

My wife and I were singing it when they played it and my daughter looked at us as if we were nuts. I miss the Dr. Demento show!

I was really disappointed that it was a "continue racing" pit stop.

It would be really awesome if Pinky went home with the express pass unused. That happening is really unlikely though just because of how much of a lead they had on the team in last.

The fish jerky task really seemed to be the wrong one to pick on this leg. It seemed like it took those teams way longer than the others.

Man, I hope Pinky goes home. How does she figure someone will help just by saying, "help us, we have the Express Pass."

That's not the same as, "help us and we'll give you an Express Pass."

Yep, I'd call them on it. You have an Express Pass? If we help you, are you going to give it us? If not, see ya later, good luck on your own.

That's pretty much where we are with the "cliff hanger" and the ER docs, right? Pinky doesn't have the clue for the long house or whatever it was.

If it were me, knowing what we know about Pinky and the No Brain, I wouldn't even trust an offer. Put the Express Pass IN MY HAND and I'll help, otherwise, go pound sand!

If Pinky makes it to the sixth leg after she has to give the Express Pass away, it will be interesting to see how different her game is when she can no longer try to manipulate people into helping her with the implied promise of the EP.

I sure hope the baseball wives can catch up. I sure like having them on my TV.

So hoping Pinky and No Brain go home after leaving the clue behind. Can't stand her.

I SURE DO LOVE FORD RANGER PICKUP TRUCKS, THOUGH!

I'm not sure whether this counts as a spoiler since it was part of the voiceover during the upcoming episode preview.
Spoiler:
I believe Phil's voiceover talking about the next episode mentioned that a team "will" be eliminated, not "may". That might be at the next pit stop, though, and not at this episode's non-pit-stop.

He definitely said 'may' for this pit stop.

I was actually kinda surprised that they made a point to feature the Ranger. Ford's dumped that vehicle from the US market because they've found they can't sell small pickups.

Also thought it was odd that they had them use the truck for the task, then had them use a different car to drive themselves afterwards (looked like a larger cab version of the truck, so would have thought it would have room for everyone they need to put in it).

Those pickup trucks were right hand side drive (probably imported from England,) so I can see why they didn't want them driving those in Norway.

Weird choice to feature that pickup truck though.

What prevents Pinky (I like 'El Diablo' better. Saw it on another forum) from following the ER doctors to their destination?

Do El Diablo and No Brain need to show the clue in order to check in?

I may have been to Epcot at WDW a few too many times.

I kept saying "VELCOME TO NORVAY!" through this whole episode.

Yes that is a rule. You must check in with all your clues and you must have been to every check point (including any Route Info points). There have been teams that have lucked in to finding the Pit Stop. But Phil would refuse to check them in until they went back and collected all the clues.

Then they would be right to refuse the help from the ER docs. The only real help would be to go back and look further for a clue.

I'd been waiting for that express pass confrontation ever since I saw the previews last week. Chain yanked.

Isn't there a difference between a non-elim leg and a continue racing leg? Nobody gets eliminated at either but the non-elim has a speed bump and a continue racing leg doesn't. Nobody gets to rest at a continuation leg either.

Wow, the fish jerky SEEMED like it would be so much easier, from the original descriptions.

BTW, one of the teams forgot the coins, right?

One of the teams got the coins but not the paper with the destination on it. If one of the teams got the paper and missed the coins, I didn't pick up on that.

They don't really know that they don't have the clue. And they probably don't know where to look for it. Plenty of rocks at the "move the rock" roadblock.

If they give the docs the pass and find out they need the clue they can feasibly go back and get the clue and finish before another team with out using their pass. Otherwise they have to use their pass and burn it early.

Not nearly as useful having the pass you have to give away in the last legs of the game as it is having the pass you can use.

It is a SECOND pass that they MUST give away - and it has to be given before the end of the fifth leg.
