The Ninth Leg of the Race

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the ninth leg of the Amazing Mutant Race 3, the last round before the Grand Finale. This week shall be the last elimination round. The surviving teams at the end of this week will be racing to the finish line.

Last week we saw our five teams travel to Skull Island where they had to sample local delicacies and interact with the wild life, either by entertaining it or by destroying it. Saving precious time by cleverly having King Kong defeat the dinosaurs for them gave Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator and Nightcrawler the time they needed to reach the finish line first.

As the winners of that leg, they get to choose one other team to Yield. A Yield forces that team to delay their start time by one hour. Jon and Kurt must select the picture of the person they wish to Yield and place it on the board.

The lengthy battle Noel and Beast waged against the dinosaurs and giant insects delayed them enough that they were the last team to arrive. As always, the last team to arrive is eliminated.

This leg of the race starts on Skull Island. From there the teams will catch a Kong Air jet at the island’s international airport. The jets will fly the teams to the Beijing Capitol International Airport where they will then catch taxis to the secret Beijing headquarters of Falun Gong, a local religious cult. It is here our racers will face their Roadblock for this leg of the race. A Roadblock is a challenge only one member of a team may perform.

Do you like convertibles? The contestant selected must convert at least five members of the cult to one of the major religions of the world – Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism or Buddhism. Just watch out for the local authorities. They don’t like cults or proselytizers.

Once the Roadblock is complete, the teams will then receive their Detour. A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. Teams must successfully complete one of the tasks described on the clue. In this Detour, the teams must choose between Aid or Abet.

In Aid, the teams will travel by rickshaw to the Guangzhou Hotel where they will meet 10 volunteers for the 2008 Summer Olympic games hosted in Beijing. These 10 volunteers have been singled out by the Chinese government for having given exemplary service. As a result, they are being rewarded with a night on the town, provided by the Amazing Mutant Race. It will be the job of the racers to show these volunteers the time of their lives at all of the big night spots in Beijing. In the event more than one team selects this Detour, an alternate group of 10 shall be provided.

In Abet, the teams will travel by rickshaw to the National Stadium where the Chinese are busily preparing for the 2008 Summer Olympics. They will meet with the coordinator of the games and must design a brand new Olympic event for China to showcase. This must be an original athletic event suitable for the summer games.

Once the Detour has been completed, the teams must then make their way to the Guangzhou Hotel for the Pit Stop of this leg of the race. As always, the last team to arrive will be eliminated.

I like Rick Shaw. He was great in Bikini Summer 2. Which I hear Koma has a signed copy of on VHS.

If you want a good bikini movie, then check out Bikini Carwash Company 2. That was what a bikini movie is all about.
