It was near the halfway mark on “Amazing Race” season 20 tonight as the teams experience “Something Wicked This Way Comes” in Azerbaijan with a detour that put half of the teams face-to-face with one of the health benefits of this country…crude oil as well as the clean-up of patients soaked in the slippery sludge which needed to be scraped off before scrubbing with soapy water and a sponge down to manly junk which gave new meaning to “changing the oil” for Art and JJ. All the teams thought it was wicked strange to be cleaning strangers but you do what you have to do when in pursuit of $1 million in prize money.
Five teams have been eliminated thus far with Joey “Fitness” Lasalla and Danny Horal (Jersey Shore Boyz) missing a chance to advance this evening as they opted to partake in the “Fast Forward” which was won by Rachel and Dave placing them in last place and behind the others teams in a race which was almost, but not quite, recovered from. Rachel and Dave won the first leg of the race and the Express Pass which they used in Paraguay in a leg of the race they lost to Art and JJ. They did, however, win the second leg of the race and with tonight’s win, they have dominated in three legs of the race for three wins which is the same as for Art and JJ, who were the winners in Paraguay and with the help of a “Fast Forward” won in Turin, Italy as well as last week in Bavaria. With no other teams winning any legs, the two top contenders to take it to the final finish appear to be Border Patrol Buddies Art Velez and JJ Carrell along with the Officer and His Sidekick Dave Brown, Jr. and wife, Rachel Brown. As everyone knows, though, anything can happen in the “Amazing Race” as terrains change and challenges test. Here is your chance to vote for your favorite team…who do you think will win “Amazing Race” season 20?
