The Amazing Race, Season 21, Episode 8

The Amazing Race Season 21, Episode 8 - "We Was Robbed" - Moscow, Russia

Rockers James & Abba could not recover after having their passports stolen in the last leg and were eliminated.

This week's placements

1. James & Jaymes (Chippendale Dancers)
2. Trey & Lexi (Texans)
3. Natalie & Nadiya (Twins)
4. Abbie & Ryan (Dating Divorcees)
5. Josh & Brent (Goat Farmers/Beekman Boys)
6. James & Abba (Rockers)

Next week: Amsterdam

Nice to see Jaymes/James get their shit together and finally pull off a first place finish. They're the shining light of this awful season and I hope they win.

Interesting to see that they didn't display the departure times like they usually do... I'm curious how far behind Abbie/Ryan, Josh/Brent, and James/Abba were.

Also, someone pointed out on another forum, they're very clearly showing each arrival at the pitstop saying hello/goodbye in their native language. Potentially part of the final challenge?

I feel bad for the rockers! Now I have to find a new team to cheer for...I like the chippendales duo, and the goat farmers for some reason lol

I didn't feel too bad for the rockers since I didn't really like them, but I feel bad that they couldn't continue on when it seemed like producers could have stepped in and helped them.

I do love Jaymes & James, but I will be so upset if they U-turn Trey & Lexi, I will be so upset. those two teams were adorable together this leg, especially when they wanted to get Trey & Lexi a cab at the end, but were all like, 'guys, we can't help you if you run off.' so I really hope that the chips don't u-turn Trey & Lexi - uturn the twins or abbie and ryan.

Well if they do, Lexie deserves it for stealing to rockers' money. That's not right.

i do kind of agree with that, but I would hope they can push past the u-turn and continue. although wasn't it the twins who passed some of the money to Trey and Lexi to ease their own consciones? or I could be misremembering.

Yeah they did that but when they told her, she was laughing and going along with it. Only Trey protested. When he did, Lexie shushed him and said he didn't get a vote. Not cool.

yeah i see your point. and maybe this is only me being idealistic, but it doesn't seem like something they'd think to do by themselves, maybe Lexi felt sort of compelled to do it since she didn't want to risk their friendship with the twins. as I've said other places in this post, the twins seem more mean-spirited and bitter and that's what makes me not like them.
