The Amazing Race Honestly They Have Witch Powers or Something S12E08 (CBS)

In the last episode, the Goths finished last. They will hit a Speedbump in this episode and will have to work hard to stay in the race.

I’ve read on the wiki site that the next season of the Amazing Race has already been greenlit. With Survivor airing in February, CBS will most likely push for an early March release for the show. This is to make sure that they have something to air because of the WGA strike that is still going on.

There is actually no way for any episodes to be shot and completed before the end of the season. Most likely, shows like Lost and 24 which would air from January onward, will have to be postponed. Actually, Lost has filmed a few episodes. 24 is postponed from what I have read.

Will the Goths be able to stay in the race or will Jen/Nate’s bickering come to an end? The teams travel to India to do some tasks there. It’s not easy, and the top spot keeps getting shuffled around. People end up lost and don’t know what to do. In the end, a team I wished that would have stayed on for longer is eliminated. It’s too bad, I thought that they were very entertaining.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
