When The Amazing Race Season 21 began a few weeks ago there were a couple of teams I didn’t think I was going to like right off the bat. One of them being the Sri Lankan twins. I think it all started with the ping-pong challenge and all their screaming, but something about them rubbed me the wrong way. Now, three episodes into it, I absolutely love them. Why? Because they have crazy enthusiasm, are tougher than some of the men out there, and they make great TV.
Natalie (nose ring) and Nadiya (nose stud) Anderson say whatever the hell is on their mind, especially when under pressure. On last night’s episode they made me laugh but also shocked me with a few of their brutally honest comments. So for this week, I am bringing you the Top 3 Snarkiest Comments made by the feisty twins.
1. “We can go with the stupid Chippendales.”
So I’m not exactly a fan of any kind of male strippers either, but this comment made my jaw drop. Hey, I never said the twinnies had tact!
2. “This guy is the worst cab driver ever, let’s get off.”
Okay, to say it is one thing, but to say it to the guy’s face while on camera?! Ouch!
3. “We’re with all the stragglers in the back.”
The twins BARELY missed the first train, and the second one set them back 3-hours where they were stuck with the blondes, the delusional monster truckers, and David & Goliath. They came out on top though, beating all three teams to the finish line.
This week it was the blondes who were eliminated from the race after missing the first train and then choosing a Becak (pedicab) driver who had no clue where he was going. Man, the bicycle pedicabs and the TAKSIs have really been a problem this season so far! Pressure got the the blondes, particularly Brittany, who screamed at her pedicab driver afterwards when he didn’t know how to speak English. She completely lost her shit, screaming louder every time the poor guy didn’t understand her. She ended up paying for 25 pedicab rides because she wasn’t patient enough to find an interpretor and she left a beautiful impression of Americans on the Indonesians.
Other Top Moments of TAR 21, Episode 3:
- Jaymes can taste culture, y’all.
- Nadiya running into the cameraman as Natalie admires someone’s photo on the U-Turn.
- The longhairs still stay away from the pack. I think it’s because they don’t want to share their weed with the rest of the teams.
