Chippendales sew cotton, others hunt dead rats on ‘Amazing Race’
Our Chippendales contestants on CBS’ “The Amazing Race” are safe again to continue after Sunday night’s challenging Season 21 episode in which Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis went hunting for dead rats -- not once, but three times in different locations.
With gritted teeth and eyes wide shut, they overcame the revolting task and wound up in 6th place. It was closer to the bottom than they wanted, but they’re still in contention.
On the show, the teams left Indonesia and moved on in their 20,000-mile Asian trek, this time in Bangladesh. They had to refurbish a bus, pound metal or weave cotton -- and collect the rats for an official rat catcher.
Team Chippendales chose the cotton challenge over the metal and wound up having to sew a blanket with the material, which consumed a lot of the clock. Twitter boards, however, lit up rooting for the Chippendales as favorites to win.
Substitute teachers Gary Wojnar and Will Chiola were eliminated from competition in Dhaka, Bangladesh, last night. Jaymes and James are sworn to secrecy about the outcome of the Emmy Award-winning hit show even though they’ve returned to their bare-chested, nighttime duties at the Rio.
The best friends turned out last week in support of Spirit Day, with their trademark black and white cuffs and bows changed into purple to speak out against bullying and show support for LGBT youth.
