Amazing Race 12: Who's Your Daddy Shirts for Sale

January 23, 2008 at 11:08 AM | by | Comments (0)

Get those PayPal accounts and bidding fingers ready: The eBay auction for Ron and Christina's "Who's Your Daddy?" and "Tiger Father, Tiger Daughter" T-shirts starts in less than an hour. You'll have plenty of time to bid, though, as the sale continues until February 2.

And don't think this is to make some money after the pair didn't take home the $1 million prize. The father-daughter team will donate all the money from the auction to the Sheltering Wings orphanage in Yako, Burkina Faso, a country Ron and Chris explored on two episodes of the race.

The whole thing sounds really nice. Except for one small detail: These are the actual shirts Ron and Chris wore on the race. Hope they got the codfish guts out!

Amazing Race 12: The Final Push

Well race fans, it's hard to believe we've actually arrived at the season finale! Eleven teams started out at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles on this once in a lifetime adventure, and traveled over 30,000 miles across four continents to get to the finish line. This was the quickest Amazing Race ever; it took teams only only twenty-one days to run the course. Ron and Christina began on a long mission to learn to work together, and their harmony finally paid off in the last few episodes. Nick and Grandpa Don have managed a great race, and Don is officially the oldest coot to ever make it to the final three.

TK and Rachel have focused on enjoying the experiences and each other, rather than the million dollar prize. These are three solid teams--and not necessarily the ones we thought we'd see in the finale. Will the Ron and Christina train plow through to a number one finish? Will TK and Rachel build on their big turnaround from last week? Will Grandpa Don simply run out of steam along the way to the finish line? All the answers and more after the jump!

After another non-elimination round, all bets are off as we head into this week's episode. Last time, TK and Rachel gambled and lost to the airlines, coming in three hours behind the other teams. As a penalty, they'll have to complete a Speed Bump task somewhere along the way--as we find out which set of racers will miss out on the season finale.

Will Nick and Don be able to run a more balanced race, or with Gramps weigh them down? Will Christina and Ron stay harmonious and focused, or will Nate and Jennifer push even harder and move in front? And will TK and Rachel be able to make up that three-hour deficit?

Let's find out!

This week, the race is down to four remaining teams, and unfortunately for us, none of them are terribly interesting. However, we'll soldier on and see who makes it to the end of this thing, anyway. Will Grandpa Don become too much of a burden for Nick, or will he keep pace with the younger crowd? Will Jennifer and Nate manage to get through one leg without scratching each others eyes out? Can TK and Rachel hold onto their lead heading into the final three?

Find out, as we head to Osaka!

Look alive, kids, because this week's episode is an action-packed doozy! After last week's non-elimination shocker, Kynt and Vyxsin are still in the race, but face a Speed Bump, a brand new challenge that only they must complete, possibly putting them way behind the other teams.

With only five teams remaining, will TK and Rachel be able to overcome some of their recent setbacks? Will the bickering Nate and Jen be able to hang on to their 2nd place lead. And will Christina file for parental emancipation from Ron?

We've got all the answers right here!

Well kids, get your seat belts on and get ready for a fast and furious episode! When we last left the teams, they were in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Nate and Jen's relationship was in tatters, and Azaria and Hendekea were sent packing. Will Nate and Jen be able to patch up their problems before it's too late? Will Ron let Christina step up and prove herself? Will Nick and Grandpa Don continue to stumble through the race like drunken sailors?

Yes, race fans, we're down to only six teams remaining, and the competition is getting fierce. (Three snaps in a circle!) With only a handful of racers left, everyone kicks it up a notch in this quest for a million bucks. Will TK and Rachel's calm focus continue to pay off? Is Jennifer and Nate's relationship headed for thermonuclear meltdown? Will the Goths, Kynt and Vyxsin, take fuchsia to a whole new level?

Well, race fans, only seven teams remain in this high-stakes race around the world--and we're down to six by the end of this week's episode. Last time, the Blondes used the U-Turn to their advantage, effectively bouncing Lorena and Jason from the race, but would that decision affect their friendship with each other and lead them on a crash course with a big old bus? Will Ron and Christina's partnership continue to be tested by Ron's stubborn ways and his painful hernia? Will brother and sister Azaria and Hendekea continue to win romantic trips for two?

AND WILL THE RACERS FINALLY LEAVE BURKINA FASO?

Thanks to the scheduling geniuses at CBS, the Race was stalled out another hour or so this week due to football and Andy Rooney. But two football games and one looong episode of 60 Minutes later, the Race was finally afoot! Will Ron succumb to his hernia? Will Jason and Lorena fight off a pack of angry camels? Who will make it to the Pit Stop without strangling Nate?

Writers strike be damned! This week, The Amazing Race picks up where we left it last week in Amsterdam. You may recall that the Lesbians were out, Ron wouldn't stop running his mouth and Gramps could barely keeps his clothes on. How could it get any more interesting?

Well, as it turns out, Ron and Christina's little fumble with a Dutch cargo bike resulted in Ron getting a hernia. That's not just bad for their chances, it's also gross. Will Lorena and Jason be able to hold on to their lead? Will Grandpa Don find new ways to slow the race? What happens when you cross two Goths and a camel?

Well, race fans, this week's episode was a doozy! We're down to ten teams and lots of unresolved conflict. This episode was fueled by pent-up resentment, frustration and bad timing... could it get any better? While some teams definitely seem to be hitting their strides, others are struggling. Will Nathan stop sniping at Jennifer? Will Grandpa Don keep his clothes on? Will Christina punch her dad in the face? Let's find out!
