Whoa! Don't slip up or get got! (Why not man?)
I'm comin for that number one spot! (Alright)
Ludacris - Number 1 spot
Ok I used the same song yesterday but I felt it was more than valid for today's post about the Amazing Race finale last night.
Joyce and Uchenna won the million dollar prize whoopee! And there was much shouting and praises and jubilation and people doing the whop in the land. Well at least at my home where people were screaming and shouting and doing dixie lol.
But let me say that this final episode was a real emotional rollercoaster ride. We as viewers backing this team went from the depths of despair when they were last to the heights of ecstasy when they were winning.
Joyce and Uchenna had a flat tire on the way to the pit stop and ended up last on the penultimate leg. This left them stranded in Jamaica with no money to start the final leg. Then they made what I thought was a strategic mistake by assuming that tourists at the airport would give them funds rather than try begging a local man for a pieca change. They got to realize them black and them in a country where the tourists probably get beg fa money by other black folks already so in most likelihood they would probably not give them anything.
Anyhow Joyce and Uchenna somehow survived Jamaica even though they looked like they had never been in a kitchen in their lives when asked to chop up 50 onions. Onto Puerto Rico it was where they managed to stay even and in some cases lead the other two teams; Rob and Amber celebrities amongst the reality tv crowd and Ron and Kelly a rather disfunctional couple from Texas.
Now me a tell ya from the start I don't like Rob and Amber, dem people play the race too dirty, too much backraising and underhand business a gwan wid them from the start. Then my man Rob when they reach Jamaica let off one line about "ahh the smell of a third world country." Wha de rass dat supposed ta mean? Chupse! Another blasted idiot!
Anyway at the end of the Puerto Rico leg Rob and Amber led and made it onto the 10:00 flight to Miami. Uchenna and Joyce followed them and made it to the gate just in time to watch it close. One could see their despair as it dawned on them that this was probably the key moment that lost them the money. I was cussing them and swearing never to watch the show again cause the fix was in. The gate was closed, and the plane doors basically closed and then miracle of miracles somehow the Captain of the plane decides to take them aboard. And people duz ask me why I skeptical about reality tv lol. Why cause clearly that was setup, nuh plane captain aint opening no doors fa nuhbody so. Wunnah mekkin sport! Well anyway that was the break Uchenna and Joyce needed and they utilized it to get ahead of Rob and Amber in Miami and ultimately win the race.
But to show how nice they are as people even at the finish line they didn't want to go in to win without having paid the taxi driver and they were about 45 dollars short. Man they stood there begging others for the taxifare for a good while when they could have run in and won. Man that's just crazy.
But they deserve their fortune cause Joyce had to shave off her hair on one leg and they were actually helpful to other teams in the race so I got to give them props. As for the money well from the get go they said they were in it to win the money to go try some invitro fertilization so Joyce could get pregnant so I say hey best of luck to them and congrats. And yo can ya see fit ta lend a brother a little loan.
