Bungee jumping Paris France
Some of us can't wait for virtual reality to make it to TV. Or can we?
We'd get the full experience of The Amazing Race ... the sights, the sounds, the, uh, smells.
That came to mind as the teams left Africa and arrived in France. In Paris, in what looked to be summer, the teams had to constantly run to their destinations, so you knew they were ripe. Tourists were in shorts, sweating, and everyone, even the prancing Phantom Blanc guy who handed out clues, looked as if they smelled like recess. No doubt, the River Seine winding through Paris threw off a scent. And one of the tasks involved the handling of shrimp.
You can see why Eau de Cologne was invented in France.
But we tremendously digress.
The episode, titled "My Tongue Doesn't Even Twist That Way", started out with a daring 364-foot bungee jump in Zimbabwe. Here's one spoiler: Everyone survived.
And so they moved on to Paris with #TeamTexas smiling and saying "I'm ordering some French fries."
Before you proceed, the rest of this report is lousy with spoilers. If you're DVR is full, clear off some of those Minority Reports because that show isn't lasting much longer.
The start: Masuwe Safair Lodge, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
The finish: Paris, France.
