At last, I’ve updated the latest race in Jaipur. If you are a WC’s fan, you must not miss this 🙂
The next destination is India. Their first stop is Delhi. There are 7 teams now and another team will be eliminated in this leg. This means more time will be focused on WC, lol. Heehee, sorry la but without him in the race, don’t expect me to watch & write on it 😛 Actually I am a busy as well as a lazy girl but lidge keeps on pestering me to write something so I’ve to indulge her. See, I am also very nice like WC, lol. Thus, enjoy my brief review and don’t expect too much from me 😛
The first task was to take a tuk tuk to Qutb Minar to find a beautiful woman, say hello to her in Hindi and accept her blessing. Before departing, the dad & daughter team asked the 2 guys for one of the Express Pass and they gave it to him. This old man was sneaky as WC also has intention to request for the pass but it should be given to him, taking into consideration of his age. WC has never been to India and Jackie has been there once. A bindi on WC’s forehead kicked start the race in India.
Then, you’ve 2 choices to either go to the fish market, catch and carry 25 fishes on the head to a predetermined venue or go to the flower market and make a flower garland out of 178 flowers. WC chose to go to the stinky & dirty fish market. It is not a difficult task but too dirty and smelly 😦
Take a look at WC & Jackie, all wet due to the water from the fishes & the worst part is they smell !!!! Yuck, I’ll choose the flower garland task even though it’ll take longer as experienced by the couple team.
None of the team gave U-Turn except WC’s team. He was reluctant to give it to the 2 young guys but Jackie persuaded him to do so as being in a competition, one needs to respect its spirit and play to win 😛 Poor WC, he felt really guilty about it especially when he was caught red-handed immediately lol. The 2 guys were rather annoyed and used their Express Pass so in the end they didn’t really lose much. Well, I guess they could have used the pass later if not because of this but all is fair & square in a game. WC should have given the U-Turn to the couple team as I don’t find the 2 young guys that much of a threat.
This is the hardest part of the race in that it took WC’s team the most time to complete. The dad & daughter team used their Express Pass to skip this task. They’ve to go to Eagle Films Studio to act out a scene from a Bollywood movie to the satisfaction of the director. They’ve to say their dialogue in Hindi as well as dance. Those who are following the game will know that Jackie is bad at dancing. Why are there so much dancing, they’ve to dance in every country? WC kind of cheated by guiding her in Cantonese as to what to do during the dance segment. They also didn’t do that well in reading their dialogue in Hindi because they can’t help laughing when the script was about a pair of lovers 😛 How can they whisper sweet nothing to each other, incestuous :(?
All the actors and actresses didn’t do well because the director cared more about their Hindi pronunciation and dancing than the actual acting. Thus, the couple team did very well and clawed back a lot of lost time. Haha, so funny that the 2 young guys finished this task faster than WC and kind of said serve you right, this is your retribution for giving us the U-Turn 😛
WC really loves to dance, doesn’t he look like a Bollywood star lol?
Next, they each get a tattoo which said Defence Colony Club Sport Complex. The dad & daughter team squandered their lead after using the Express Pass by going to the wrong place. The two young guys also nearly got eliminated due to their poor direction asking and communication skills. They should have taken a proper car taxi. WC has no problem finding the sport complex to get the clue to the next stop.
In the New Friends Colony, WC has to look for the woman in the photo while being blinded by the colored dyes. He attempted quite a few times before finding her. Calvin was even worse than him. He should have let Jackie do this task because I think girls have better memory than guys.
WC lamented the task was too hard which I don’t really think so. Oh my goodness, look at WC !!!! He can look so crazy & ugly 😦 His hairstyle is really ugly and with it uncombed & messy, he looks like someone who has just escaped from the mental asylum, lol. Since this episode was broadcast on Halloween day in China, some audience commented that WC looked like a mad wizard. haha…Can that be the calm and collected lawyer He Yi Chen 😛 ? Ya, he destroyed his handsome image in my heart but I feel closer to him now, heehee….
Inspite of all the obstacles, WC arrived 3rd at Humayun’s Tomb and earned the first flight to the next destination. Wah, what an improvement. WC, you’ve done well 🙂 The Olympic champion couple won this leg so they’ll also get a personal driver for the next leg. Come on, that guy was an Olympic gymnastic champion as well as younger than WC. In addition his wife can dance better than Jackie so it is not unexpected for them to win this leg. Jordan’s wife Cherrie & friend’s team was eliminated in this leg so only 6 teams left for next week. WC will dirty his hands in the next leg, go go go, lol.
The next destination was Jaipur. They had an early flight and from the picture above, WC looked like he had a scary ride or was scared to take the plane, lol. The first stop was Jantar Mantar, an observatory. When they arrived, it was not opening time yet so they waited outside. WC planned ahead and checked out the surroundings to ensure they can get away the fastest. Planning is very important so he is doing the right thing at the very beginning.
They’ve to search for someone whose turban held the clue to the next stop. Initially, all of them did not know the clue was written on the turban, they thought there would be a paper in the turban. WC was the first to find the clue because he dared to take the risk to unwrap the turban. If the turban you’ve unwrapped did not have the clue, you’ve to redo the turban which was no easy task as experienced by Ekin’s team. WC seemed pretty experienced in it so I suspect he has put up a turban before for a drama? Anyway it is rather funny, seeing him put up the turban because that Indian guy seemed gloomy, lol. I guess he is also lucky and more careful after some well-learnt lessons during the US leg. They nearly overlooked the clue but because of WC’s attentiveness, he noticed there was writing on the turban while he was trying to put up the turban again. The couple team can only stared at him in awe because they were too cautious so lost the lead.
For those who can understand Cantonese, you’ll notice WC uttered a rude word, ‘deng le ge fai’ after he said ‘shit’ around 7.28 minute. I don’t really know how to translate it into English but it is slightly more severe than ‘damn it’ lol. I am surprised WC is so real in that I get to hear him swear, haha…It didn’t get censored because I think those in China were not aware that it is something impolite 😛
The next task was of course one of the most popular sports in India, cricket. WC was wearing a nice white shirt and black pants which matched his cricket sportswear perfectly, making him look so much more dashing compared with other contestants & I am not being bias here, lol. WC said he has put on the cricket sportswear before except the ‘mouth protection’. It turned out that it was not to protect the mouth but to protect the most important part of his body, so embrassing lol. Ekin’s team followed very closely behind so WC felt really stressed out. Yet, he still managed to perform well and hit the ball first which impressed Jackie greatly.
Because WC was first, he chose to do the fast forward task because the winner of the task can skip all other tasks and go to the pit stop immediately. However the loser(s) will need to go back and do all the other tasks like everyone so will definitely lose some time. Both WC and Ekin’s team arrived at the fast forward task place at about the same time. This is a case of HK vs HK 😛 When he found out the task was to do with cow manure, he has a mini break down lol.
Since they’ve come so far, he has to solider on to try his best to win this or else they’ll have to go back to square one. Jackie told him to treat them as flour, haha…
The task was to paste 50 round shaped cow manure on to the wall. They must be big enough and not fall from the wall. This was one of the most memorable experience for WC because he is a clean freak. He said he’ll not do it a 2nd time in his life and has to painstakingly use toothbrush to clean each & every one of his fingernails thoroughly, lol. Although the cow manure didn’t really smell, it was still a yuck yuck task to touch and knead them, so dirty 😦
When Jackie pasted the cow manure too hard on the wall, some backfired and stuck on WC’s face, eeeeeeee………..However he didn’t waste time to hunt for someone to wipe it away for him. He endured and persevered !!! This is the winning difference in a neck to neck race. When the cow manure was stuck on Ekin’s hair, he went around looking for someone to wipe it away. That wasted valuable time which he could not afford. Needless to say, ultimately WC’s team won this & can fast forward to the pit stop whereas poor Ekin and Jordan have to go and do yoga. WC worked well with Jackie to complete this hard task.
Then Jackie helped WC to clean up his pretty face, such a cry baby lol. While doing that, she jokingly told Ekin & Jordan, they grew up living next to the toilet, lol. Both siblings do have a sense of humor. But his sacrifice really made all the difference. After this leg, Jackie seemed to look at his elder brother with more respect and admiration. I believe WC contributed tremendously in this leg, the shinning star. On the other end, the 2 young guys were so silly to even bother to want to go and give the fast forward task a shot because they were quite behind. Haha, when they arrived and saw WC has completed the fast forward, they were pretty disappointed saying WC is their black star lol.
Sorry Hanny, I am lazy so I will fast forward to the pit stop like WC lol. I’ll only comment Ekin shouldn’t have wasted time at yoga then went to do the transporting the ceramic barrels task. If he truly believed they can’t do it, they should have left immediately. Otherwise they should persevere and after a few tries, I believe that judge will finally let them through. I do pity Ekin’s team as they were really unfortunate to have the tire punctured at the very beginning, then losing the fast forward by a little bit and in the end has to give up yoga and do the other task which was also not easy.
WC’s team arrived at the pit stop but the driver stopped them quite a far distant away so they went to the wrong place. Luckily they realised this and ran all the way to the pit stop to secure their lead. I guess it was very hot so WC has to wrap a towel on his head to cool down. Can you spot any difference in WC’s appearance between the 2 pictures? They were taken 8 years apart. OMG, WC is so well preserved, he never aged 🙂
Hold up your hands and lift up your head as winner takes all !
Finally WC and Jackie won this leg, congrats !!! When Allan Wu announced that they’ve also won a year supply of milk, WC looked like he pretended to look pleased lol. Then he really looked happy when Allan told him he’ll get an extra RMB2000 for the next leg. Come on, why would he be thrill to be given free milk, haha? He would prefer an Express Pass 😛 This program is very exciting because the strength of the top 4 teams are quite evenly matched as they’ve won one leg each. Subsequent race will be very tense and thrilling. WC said giving the U-turn to the 2 young guys really made a difference as he has leveled the playing field for everyone since nobody has an advantage anymore. Hanny said the team who gave the U-turn has never won the race. Well, I can’t say if WC will win in the end but at least he won this leg so giving the U-turn did turn out to be a strategic move.
WC & Jackie, you are the best !!!! Lidge has to eat her words, saying my WC will get kicked out early and will never win because of poor communication with Jackie. By winning this leg, WC has proven lidge wrong. She is too judgmental & called the shot too early. WC needed time to warm up and adjust since he has not been close to the sister due to him spending most of his working time in Taiwan then China. WC & Jackie, Himmy and I are proud of you so keep up the good work ! Add oil, haha…
Next week, we’ve a new destination, Dubai as well as a new writer, Himmy to write about it so stay tune 🙂
