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?

Well, how stupid can you be? leave your important shit with a random cabbie. jfc. it's life 101.
butterbuns 19th-Nov-2012 03:19 am (UTC)
lbr, they all do it, because they ask the cabbies to wait. IIRC this is the first time in 21 seasons that a cabbie has taken off.

Yeah but I dont think everyone leaves their special Amazing Race fanny pack in it. That's the one thing you should always have bc everyone shoves their passports, money, and clues into it. To leave that is stupid. People have left their bags behind before, but never that.
ronnie_luvs_u 19th-Nov-2012 03:22 am (UTC)
honestly, it's crazy that this is the first time this has happened. stupid as fuck move, especially when it can get you eliminated.
simplychristina 19th-Nov-2012 03:50 am (UTC)
Right, though this is the second elimination due to a missing passport. Someone left his pack in a cab when getting out, which took off, can't remember which guy it was at the moment. They came back for All Stars though, IIRC.

Dev/Justin lost their passports one season and came back in Unfinished Business.

Dallas/Toni lost their passports and didn't even make it to the final leg in time to greet at the finish line. I wish they would come back because I loved them.

id get my ass a fanny pack or something for my passport/money and NEVER leave it anywhere. idgaf if i looked ridiculous carrying a fanny pack post 1992
ronnie_luvs_u 19th-Nov-2012 03:24 am (UTC)
lol seriously. and it's the Amazing Race. they look insane 80% of the time running around like idiots, so a fanny pack would just complete the look.
weighty_ghost 19th-Nov-2012 03:30 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure they get given fanny packs that has the little race flag on it.

That team wasn't v smart imo. Didn't they lose their money a few weeks ago? Like I know the other teams took it, but didn't it fall out of their backpack in the first place?
ronnie_luvs_u 19th-Nov-2012 03:32 am (UTC)
was that them too? lord. they just seemed so clueless in general.
butterbuns 19th-Nov-2012 04:11 am (UTC)
The other teams took it like, 2 minutes after they'd stood up and it was on a chair. They noticed not long after but the other teams had already left.

So now that they are eliminated, does production just say "good luck, bye!" Or do they help them get a new passport issued?
longlonglong12 19th-Nov-2012 03:58 am (UTC)
I was wondering how long they were stuck in Russia for haha
elizabethemily5 19th-Nov-2012 04:02 am (UTC)
I know! Doesn't it take a while to get a passport anyways? I wonder if the show put them up in a hotel until they were able to leave.
