The Amazing Race Episode 8: "My Cheese is Out of Control"

Welcome race fans, today Kevin is unavailable to watch the episode and he recruited me, his little sister Nora, to fill in. Tonight's episode was located in the beautiful country of Switzerland. I found tonight's show was one of the most enjoyable of the season. The scenery was breathtaking, the challenges were fun to watch, and to my surprise Katie and Max didn't argue all night. The ending was a real nailbiter waiting to see if the penalty affected the elimination. Don't worry readers your favorite blog reporter will be returning for next week's episode.
Order of Finish

1. Bates and Anthony, brothers/professional hockey players (won 2nd, 6th and 7th legs)
2. Mona and Beth, friends/roller derby moms
3. Max and Katie, newlyweds
4. caroline and Jennifer, friends/country bandmates
5. Joey and Meghan, friends/YouTube hosts
6. Chuck and Wynona, married, ELIMINATED (arrived at the finish 5th, but receieved a 30 minute penalty for not following directions on cheese challenge)

Thumbs Up: To all the teams except Chuck and Wynona for really enjoying and appreciating the beauty of their surroundings. They also seemed to have fun and really enjoy the challenges.

Thumbs Down: To Chuck for constantly putting down Wynona. His never ending criticism only made things worse and he never even complimented her for completing the task.

Best Moment: I really enjoyed watching Caroline and Jennifer struggling to get the St. Bernard, Cara, into the train. Always the gentleman, Bates gallantly came to their rescue. Jennifer and Cara quickly became friends which made Jennifer miss her own dogs. She said she hoped they didn't watch and get jealous.

Quote: "First place buddy, we have a hat trick, won the last three races. Three in a row. Pretty sweet. Can't be too disappointed in that performance." Bates and Anthony at the pit stop after winning their fourth leg.

Question: Who does the Amazing Race blog better, my brother Kevin or me?

I'm not getting between you two although you did a great job Nora. But I like the hockey brothers. And I agree with you on the scenery. Think I can get a job there?
