The Amazing Race Season 23 Review “Down and Dirty”

With about half of the teams being knocked out, we’re left with the cream of the crop as The Amazing Race returned tonight with “Down and Dirty”. We’ve basically whittled it down to the all stars of the all stars, so I was excited to see the real race get started with this installment.

The episode got off to a crazy start with the Road Block, as the teams all had to fill up the awesomely named “Tuck Tucks” with some gas. This had to be one of the most ambitious challenges that we’ve ever seen on this show, and that’s saying something. When you think about the sheer logistics of getting at least 28 Tuck Tucks (four each for all 7 teams) at the same place at the same time, that’s pretty crazy. Then you realize that they’re clogging up this very busy gas station on this very busy road, and it added a crazy layer to this very frantic challenge. It was also yet another pretty dangerous challenge for this season, which hasn’t been shying away from the danger. Basically all of the team members got hit by a Tuck Tuck at least once, but thankfully they were so small that you could just push them out of the way.
