The Amazing Race 22
Amazing Race 22 started in Los Angeles, were in Bora Bora for legs 1 & 2, Christchurch New Zealand in leg 3, and in Bali, Indonesia for Leg 4. Each week I recap the events from the episode including the team that won the leg, the team that was eliminated and every Roadbluck, UTurn, and Detour.
The Amazing Race is a reality TV show on CBS hosted by Phil Keoghan who provides the narrative for the beginning of each leg of the race, Detours, and Roadblocks. Phil is at the finish line of each leg, called a Pit Stop, where he lets each team know what place they are in and let's the last place team for that leg of the race that they have been eliminated.

What happened during TAR 22?
May 5, 2013 - Final Leg - Teams race in Washington D.C.
May 5, 2013 - Leg 11 - Teams travel to Dublin, Ireland
April 28, 2013 - Leg 10 - Teams travel to Glasgow, Scotland
April 21, 2013 - Leg 9 - Teams continue racing in Berlin, Germany
April 14, 2013 - Leg 8 - Teams travel to Switzerland. Before the 1st roadblock, teams have taken 3 different trains to the top of the Swiss alps and deliver a St Bernard before getting their next clue. The 1st roadblock teams must traverse the north face of the Igor to rescue a travelocity Gnome. Teams must move 200 lbs of cheese by a traditional swiss sled down a steep hill. Teams now head to the Pit Stop. Bates and Anthony were the first team to arrive in Leg 8 and win a trip for 2 to Bora Bora. Joey and Meghan were the last team to arrive, however, Chuck and Wynona incurred a 30 minute penalty allowing Joey and Meghan to be team #5. Chuck and Wynona were eliminated from the race.
April 7, 2013 - The Amazing Race did not air on this day.
March 31, 2013 - Leg 7 - This leg has a fast forward, which Bates and Anthony successfully achieve. Teams that don't do a fast forward in this roadblock must take two goats and paddle a boat up stream. Two teams get caught speeding and must pay the ticket before continuing with the race. One team backs into a poll at the police station and damage the vehicle. Both are the first time I've seen these on the Amazing Race. At Royal Tree Lodge, teams must do a detour, in "Brains" teams must go on a horseback safari and place blocks in the right order. In "Braun", teams must take firewood by donkey 1/2 mile to a camp. Bates and Anthony won leg 7 and win $7,500 each. Pam and Winnie were the last team to arrive and were eliminated.
March 24, 2013 - Leg 6 - I need to update Leg 6 and their adventures in Botswana. Bates and Anthony won leg 6 in this non elimination leg. Max and Katie finished last and must do a Speed Bump in the next leg.
March 17, 2013 - Leg 5 - Sorry I still need update Leg 5.
March 10, 2013 - Leg 4 is a continuation of Leg 3 as teams continue racing in Bali, Indonesia. In the previews, this was dubbed the longest leg ever in the Amazing Race. Chuck and Wynona were the last team to arrive in Leg 3, but are still racing. The first detour requires teams to gather sand from the bottom of a river or make a fruit offering in the Ubud Monkey Forest. In the roadblock, teams must pick out a surfboard. Dave and Connor win their 2nd leg and both receive $5,000. Jessica and John were the last team to check in and were eliminated from the race. In typical TAR fashion, the previews mislead, and the longest leg, was just a team being grouchy and tired.
March 3, 2013 - In Leg 3, teams travel to Christchurch, New Zealand, Phil Keoghan's home town. Once in Christchurch, teams drive to Kai River Gorge to take a Jet Boat to their next clue. The Detour chooses between two New Zealand past times in Rev it Up or Reel it In. Driving cars or catching fish, it seems driving cars would be easier than trying to catch fish. Teams now drive themselves to Mount Hutt Station for their next clue. In the Roadblock, teams must race through a Shemozzle and collect a dozen eggs without breaking. Teams drive to the pit stop at Terrace Downs. Dave and Connor, ruptured achilles and all, are the 1st team to arrive and win a trip for two to Bangkok. Phil surprised the first team with a race continuation. We can only surmise that the last team was not eliminated, as happened when the race did this in TAR 20.
February 24, 2013 - In Leg 2, teams continue to race across Bora Bora. Teams must either dive for oysters and find two red pearls, or setup an underwater dining area. Teams must ride a water ski to Motu Tapu, the most photographed island is the south pacific. During the road block, teams must kick a coconut on stilts across the beach 35 yards. Bates and Anthony win Leg 2 of TAR 22 and received a trip to London, England. Idries and Jamil were the last team to arrive and were eliminated from the race.
February 17, 2013 - Teams departed from the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. The teams fly to Bora Bora. One member of each team will tandem skydive from a helicopter. Teams now travel to Edem Beach by water taxi. Teams must find a clue under one of 400 sand castles. If they wreck one and don't find a clue, they must rebuild the sand castle. Teams must attach a float to a canoe and then paddle to the pit stop. Jessica and John win Leg 1 of TAR 22 and receive an express pass to use later in the race. They also received a second express pass to give to another team. Three teams stopped building sand castles. Matt and Daniel were the last team to arrive and were eliminated from the Amazing Race.

9/25/2011 - Season 19, Episode 1, Leg 1 Great start to race 19. Teams flew to Taiwan where they had to look up. I felt sorry for Cathi and Bill as they seemed to have no idea what to do. The memorization task at the Temple of Confucius was pathetic as the teams couldn't slow down enough to remember a simple proverb.
"In all things success depends on previous preparation, and without such previous preparation there is sure to be failure."
No one was eliminated on the first episode of The Amazing Race 19. The last team to check in was Cathi and Bill and they will have a Pit Stop somewhere in the second leg of the race. Phil Keoghan announced the next leg would feature the first ever double elimination. Ernie and Cindy won the first leg.
