In this episode, the teams traveled from Cambodia to India, two competitors fell in love (well, “like”), rickshaws were painted green, and the word “babe” was used 362 times. For those keeping score, that's 361 times too many.

  1. The Top 6 Things I Learned About the Teams on The Amazing Race 13:

    1. Nick and Starr [Siblings]: Still going strong, this brother and sister team smoked the competition and landed first at the mat where Phil was keeping company with an Indian woman that had a fire on her head. Seriously. Fire.

    2. Kelly and Christy [Divorcees]: Got to the pit stop in second place (despite my sending hope out into the universe that they would be eliminated). The one concern the other teams had about these two this leg of the race was the skimpiness of their outfits… something that could get them into trouble in India. They were OK, but I hope the next leg takes them to Siberia or something. Put some clothes on!

    3. Toni and Dallas [Mother and Son]: Dallas has a cute little flirtation going on with Starr, which at time can be awkward: “My mom is the worst wing-man ever!”

    4. Terence and Sarah [Newly Dating]: Note to Terence: stop using the word “babe.” I mean, really, at the end of every sentence? Really? It’s like a bad Saturday Night Live sketch with Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis. Wait a minute…

    5. Andrew and Dan [Fraternity Brothers]: chose to do the ironing at the Road Block. Too bad the frat boys have never ironed a day in their life. They were sure they would be eliminated, but arrive 5th at the mat. Which leaves...

    6. Ken and Tina [Separated]: With a horrible taxi driver who did not know his way around the city (yet they kept on using him), and with their personal relationship slowly imploding, Ken and Tina could not catch a break. They arrived last at the Pit Stop, but… it was a non-elimination round! They will face a Speed Bump in the next leg, but are not out yet.

    What do YOU think? Would you have chosen the ironing or the money task? What is with Kelly and Christy’s clothes? Who will be eliminated next? Give us your Two Cents… We’ll buy Terence a thesaurus.
