Slap Unbalanced Detour. In series history, I can think of roughly five contestants who would have been able to taste all fourteen salami samples and then identify them on a single trip to the cart. And the series in question would be Hell's Kitchen and Top Chef. Combined. Expecting your typical Racer to pull out that kind of palette? Yeah, right. The statue cleaning was slow and steady with the occasional beheading: the salami was back and forth and back and forth and repeat and throw up and repeat.
Slap The 'coming this season' footage just keeps right on hitting you, doesn't it?
No hand movement Fundamentally boring Roadblock. There was nothing really wrong with it in terms of design and everyone had a fair chance to execute it properly. It was just -- boring.
Clap Stick shifts plus unreliable street sign presence plus Italian pronunciation vs. American equals win.
Slap Not enough time spent at the museum. If you were going to do a hunt task, that was one of the best places in the world to run one -- and you sent them after a single Model T. A waste of a perfectly good site.
Slap View and interesting architecture/scary elevators aside, any 'ride up grab something and then ride down' sequence does nothing except burn episode.
No hand movement Gee, who was sponsoring this episode again? Well, it could have been worse -- 'Here's five hundred cups of motor oil, representing forty different brands. Start tasting.'
