It's Not Over Until the Phil Sings
Original Airdate: 03.21.2006
Airport drama returns to the Race as some computers conspire to un-bunch the teams. Once that is sorted out, they enjoy some German precision, tacky product-placement and German silliness (yeah, that does exist). Auf wiedersehen, Wanda and Desiree.
Here's the 411 for Episode 4.
With no bunch points beyond Moscow, airport maneuvering was key, as the teams that got ahead there, stayed ahead. In the end, Wanda & Desiree were laid low by fatigue and the vagaries of Autobahn navigation.
It's time for a smashing good rant.
The Racers should have known Phil wasn’t going to eliminate them in Russia because there was no greeter on the mat with him.
It was funny when all the teams saw Phil and thought that they were done. Then he told them to keep going. The TV screen said that some teams said, “Oh shoot.” It didn’t sound like “shoot” to us though.
Achtung! It's time to check out the culture of Germany.
Coming off a couple of good weeks of predictions, I can honestly say I didn’t see that coming.
