‘Amazing Race’ Season 26 Recap: Smelly Eggs and Cat Cafe
“Amazing Race” Season 26 Episode 4 “The Great Amazing Nasty Race” aired on Friday, Mar. 13, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. on CBS. The episode kicks off with the continuation of the race in Phuket, Thailand. Read on to know the first couple flying to Bangkok.
Rochelle and Mike are the first pairs to leave at 3:00 a.m. They received the 6:00 a.m. flight. They are headed to the Buddhist temple of Wat Yannawa. However, after the hysteria in finding taxis, “Team SoCal” Tyler and Laura becomes the first team to arrive at the temple.
The Detour is either Water, riding on a water taxi or Wheel, using a small cab. Team SoCal chooses Water. Lucky for them because unknowingly for the teams, water taxis are faster than the usual cab. As expected, traffic halts the street cabs.
Next challenge for Team SoCal is to eat an egg which is 1,000 years old. Because of the smell, both feel like vomiting. Wheels are turning for the land taxis because they do not have to eat old eggs. They just have to enter a snooker club and sink some balls.
As the race progresses, “Team New Kid” Harley and Jonathon find the Speed Bump. Using river reeds, they must create a sculpture that looks like a grasshopper. Meanwhile, the other teams are praying at a temple as part of their challenge. Some are at the Caturday Cafe to pour milk for the cats. Turns out, Jenny has a fear of cats. Again, Murphy’s Law strikes on Team New Kid when cat allergies slow them down.
The next stop for Tyler and Laura is to look for an engine in a known neighborhood in Bangkok. They need to find a screwdriver that holds their next clue. After finding the clue, they head to the metal castle called Loha Prasat. They win a dinner cruise date. However, Bergen and Kurt are the first ones to arrive at the metal castle. They win a Puerta Vallarta, Mexico trip.
No thanks to the cat allergies and Murphy’s Law, Team New Kid finishes last. Jonathon is still happy. It was because it has always been his dream to join the show. Then he tells Harley how much he loves him. Phil Keoghan announces that they are eliminated from the race.
