Thai Food *Is* Pretty Good

January 14th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Congratulasians to Ron and Christina, the Hardass Father/Disappointing Daughter duo of The Amazing Race 12, who overcame their earlier differences, kicked ass in Japan and Taiwan (where Christina spoke both native tongues fluently), finished first in last night’s leg and won a spot in the final three to compete for a million smackers.

Overheard during last night’s episode, “Sorry, Guys, I’m Not Happy to See You”:

Ron and Christina

CHRISTINA: I think my Dad and I are a smarter team than Nate and Jen…

Nate and Jen

NATE: You know, I know absolutely nothing about Taiwan except we think Thai food’s pretty good…

Nate and Jen were the last team to arrive on the mat last night. I was sorry to hear host Phil “Women’s Hips” Keoghan tell Nate and Jen that he was sorry to tell them that they had both been eliminated from the race. Now there’s no one left on the show to hate, except maybe those dirty hippies.
