Go Full-on Veruca Salt, as we are back for our second season of old Amazing Race recaps - Amazing Race Australia 2! Over these twelve weeks, three people who are Finance Professionals, Dog Lovers, Reality TV Stars, Paperless Accountants and Optimists - Logan, Michael & Michelle - are recapping a season that has an insane reputation amongst fans (which is completely justified), continuing with the tenth episode and elimination of People's Sweethearts, Lucy & Emilia.
In this episode - Michael answers a question eight weeks too late, Paul & Steve seem to be deteriorating, the final five gets spoiled, we explain our respective histories with Banff, Michelle learns about toques, there's a Big Brother crossover, the mandatory costumes have an interesting component, we rattle through the Roadblock, Jo's laughin' at her (and it's rude), the editors undermine Grace again, we reveal the unintentional consequence of zombification, someone breaks the Michelle Pearce-Denovan rules, Shane & Andrew break the streak, Lucy & Emilia almost make history, reputations are upheld and we wonder if the "Finals Week" scheduling was entirely because of this episode.
Thank you for listening - we will see you next week for Leg 11!
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 3; 23-32; Australia 3; Canada 2-5 and Asia 5. This episode also features a reference to the ending of Wie is de Mol: Oregon.
Additional note: Shane & Andrew finally broke the streak, but will it continue now our heroes have fallen? Only one way to find out!
