TAR Australia: ‘Like driving into a postcard’
At first, I’ve resented the Summer Olympics for pushing TAR: Australia back two weeks, but now I’m glad it’s happened this way. Not only we get the remaining three episodes in three consecutive days, but now that Lucy&Emilia have been eliminated, we only have to hurt for two days – not weeks.
It was rather obvious they will be sent packing from the first few minutes. Not only the first words they told the camera were along the lines of ‘being grateful for what you have’, but we knew from the sneak peek that there will be quite a few physical challenges this leg. Skiing, riding an electric bull, climbing a frozen waterfall, getting a clue out of an ice sculpture… not exactly those two girls’ strong points. However, they never gave up – not that anyone expected otherwise – and left the same they raced this entire time – positive, optimistic and with smiles on their faces. They’ve been two rays of sunshine this entire season and it was awesome!
To make it that much better, they completed a challenge Steve&Paul didn’t. Big, scary Paul, who can do ANYTHING couldn’t locate the backpack, yet the sisters did! Paul got beaten by Team Turtle. Sweet. Very sweet. (While on the topic of sweet things, let’s all mock Steve&Paul for being complete idiots during the last challenge and falling to fourth place. It warms me on the inside.)
So. My Ideal Final Three is all gone, none of the teams made it to the Final Three. A slight regression from last season (Sam&Renae made it and it was obviously just because I rooted for them *sarcasm*), but I’m cool with it. I think all three ran great races and I wish to see them all return for the All-Stars version I’m hoping will be made at some point in time.
But before that, we need to pray to all gods and saints that Steve&Paul get eliminated next.
