"Having a Baby's Gotta Be Easier Than This" Recap

There are four teams left on The Amazing Race. Three will race in the finale. Coming into tonight, there were three episodes of The Amazing Race 14 left. You do the math. To me, the most intriguing sub-plot of the season right now (I'm over the Jen-Luke squabble) is the very real possibility that an all-female team will win The Amazing Race this season. An all-female team has never won The Amazing Race, a fact that has to be remedied at some point. Kisha and Jen are contenders, for sure, but I don't think Cara and Jaime have been given their due this season. The cheerleaders have been solid all year, and really showed their stuff in tonight's episode. What follows is a recap of tonight's episode. Be safe, and enjoy.

I declined to watch Andy Rooney blabber his octogenarian thoughts tonight, lest they infiltrate my brain and make me slam my head into a wall. So, sorry, I cannot offer you any insights into his madness.

Luke and Jen hate each other now. Will they fight on this leg too? Even a week later, viewers seem very, very divided on the Luke-Jen issues. One thing is for sure - Margie overreacted at the pit stop. One more shout out to Mark and Michael before we get started - I loved those little guys.

Gualin, China is where our final four teams begin the next leg of the race. Kisha and Jen depart near 2pm, and are told to fly to Beijing, China. Once there, they must go to a foot massage spa for their next clue. Kisha and Jen say that they're over the whole Luke thing, and that they won't dwell on it. Once again, Tammy and Victor are excited to go somewhere where they speak the language. Hooray for them, I guess. Luke is, like, totally done with Kisha and Jen. Cara and Jaime are still attractive cheerleaders. Surprising they're still around, right? I suppose they've run a solid race.

Margie and Luke buy tickets on the first flight, at 5:10pm. Everyone will probably get on this flight. Jen and Kisha make some mildly racist remarks at the plane ticket counter. Kisha and Jen then cut Margie and Luke after a credit card mishap (stupid, don't ask), and Margie IS NOT HAPPY. This is the editors trying to create drama out of nothing. Everyone is going to get on the same flight, unless Cara and Jaime blow it. Oftentimes, the first 20 minutes of The Amazing Race is completely pointless. I suppose they want to keep the options open in case something dramatic does happen in the airport.
