Crank up the seductive jazz music, as we are back for our first ever season of old Amazing Race recaps - Amazing Race 3! Over these thirteen weeks, three people who would never offer a tourist a massage place - Logan, Michael & Michelle are recapping the season, continuing with the eleventh leg and elimination of Derek & Drew!
In this episode, we thank the Chinese government for this episode, there's a split in the group over whether we should keep defending Flo, we reveal why the flags were really changed, Production gets lucky with Ian still being in the Race, Drew dates himself, Michael goes looking for a sponsor, we wonder whether Zach was actually trying to play the moralist, we test Michelle's theme park etiquette, Flo gets an unaired advantage, Logan spots another sneaky Zach moment, one team spots a merchandising opportunity, Michael compares Ho Chi Minh City to an 80s video game, we explain whether Flo actually got her boyfriend eliminated, a pun is released, Derek & Drew get eulogised and we look ahead to the final two episodes of the season by praising the characters you forgot about.
Please note: This episode is intended on being spoiler-free - however, as with our other historical recaps, this episode may contain references to episodes that we have already covered - namely from Seasons 23-32; Australia 3; Canada 2-5 and Asia 5. These episodes do skirt the lines of spoilers a little more than normal, due to the slightly more...infamous aspects of the season.
Additional note: Really enjoying covering this season! We've got two more episodes of TAR left before we go away (...for nine days).
