The Amazing Race We Really Burned Bridges For Sure S12E05 (CBS)

Karma sucks.

That’s what the blondes, Shana and Jen, realize in this episode. They’ve already alienated most of the other teams by pulling a U-Turn on Lorena and Jason in the last episode. They continue their bitchy travels and have a little verbal catfight amongst themselves.

The other team that is constantly bickering is Nate and Jen. They are not working well together. They fight and their team is slowly falling apart. Ron and Chris worked better together, but not by much. Ron continues to badger his daughter to get his way.

I found this episode funny. The constant badgering is entertaining to watch. I liked how Rachel/TK and the Goths ended up in the top of the race this time.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
