Amazing Race Prize $1 Million
December 11, 2011 by staff
Amazing Race Prize $1 Million, Next week, the “Amazing Race” will conclude as the final three teams race for the finish line. But this season’s strongest team — pro snowboarders Andy and Tommy — won’t be among them. Thanks to some bad luck (and chatty cab drivers) in Panama, Andy and Tommy lost their chance at the $1 million prize in this season’s biggest shocker.
The teams started their second-to-last leg in Brussels, Belgium, where they spent the night sleeping in the Atomium. (As our NJ.com commenters correctly pointed out last week, the Atomium is actually a building — not just a very cool statue of the atomic structure of iron).
Andy and Tommy, who won last week’s leg, left first. Their task was to dress as two comic book characters, using the costumes provided, and find a man in a photo. They had to ask people on the street to figure out who they were.
Eventually, the teams found people who recognized them as characters from the classic Belgian comic book Tintin and directed them to a mural representing the icon. (Did anyone catch if this was a commercial tie-in to the new Steven Speilberg-directed Tintin movie coming out this month? If it wasn’t, it was a strange coincidence. Last week’s Ford Mustang plug was much more blatant.)
Jeremy and Sandy made it to the Tintin mural first, taking the lead. Only Andy and Tommy, who said comic books were not their strong suit, fell behind. They thought they were dressed as Charlie Chaplin. A second trip to an internet cafe helped them figure out they were actually dressed as the detectives in the TinTin comic books.
