Wednesday’s “The Amazing Race” is dino-mite. Or at least one task is.
Leg 5 takes the top eight teams to Dubai, where one of the tasks is in its famous Dinosaur Park. And it goes without saying that the TPTB will not pass up the opportunity to have everyone dress up as these prehistoric beasts. So get ready for everyone running around as T-Rexes! As seen in the sneak peek above, the teams have to haul their dino tail around the park to collect five different colored glowing eggs. Look at how all those little dino butts wiggle! If no one says “hold on to your butts,” then what is even the point?
“We had to put on a Tyrannosaurus Rex outfit and Bret [LaBelle] came around the corner and it was like Godzilla was in Dubai,” Chris Hammons jokes. Not a joke: Bret accidentally running out of the park. But just like life, Bret, uh, finds a way.
OK, enough “Jurassic Park” jokes. This dino task is in the first episode of Wednesday’s two-hour block of “Race,” which is to make up for last week’s break for the “Survivor” finale. The second hour takes place in Uganda and features a Head-to-Head Battle. “Race” also moves to its new time this week, taking over “Survivor”‘s time slot of 8/7c.
