OK, folks. The 10th edition of The Amazing Race began tonight. The Philiminator said that there would be surprises and the first was a doozy. But before that, the teams started in Seattle and headed for Beijing, China. Upon their arrival, they had clues to go to a restaurant where they had their first Road Block. The lucky person had to eat fish eyes. Upon finishing, the next clue instructed them to go to the Forbidden City.
The last team to arrive at the Forbidden City was eliminated from the race - even though it wasn't a pit stop . The other teams were shocked. The team that was eliminated were best friends who are Muslim. It's too bad they were the philiminated team - I would have liked to see how far they could have gone.
Interesting teams this time. There is a couple where the woman has a prosthetic leg. There is a coalminer and his wife.
