The Amazing Race 31 Recap: Episode 2 – Knock the Newbie Out of Us
The second leg of this season of The Amazing Race 31 brings the racers to Laos! In Laos, the racers will have a huge decision to make when they get surprised by a double U-turn in this leg. Which team will make it to the pit stop first? Which team will be eliminated this week on The Amazing Race 2019? Keep refreshing this page to get all the details of tonight’s episode of The Amazing Race! If you missed last week’s premiere of The Amazing Race, you can get all caught up with our recap right here!
We start with Leo and Jamal being the first team to head to Laos! Colin and Christie are in second, Tyler and Korey are in third, and Rachel and Elissa are in fourth. Becca and Floyd are fifth, and Nicole and Victor are in sixth. Corinne and Eliza, Chris and Bret, Rupert and Laura and Janelle and Britney are not too far behind the leading teams.
The teams get to Laos and get their next clue after meeting with the monks. This clue leads the teams to a double U-turn and a few of the teams are contemplating if they should use it on someone or not. They decide to U-Turn Becca and Floyd and Becca and Floyd decide to U-Turn Korey and Tyler.
It is time for the detour where the teams can either learn the Lao ABCs or learn to put together skewers. It seems like the teams are both having a hard time with both challenges, but in my opinion, the skewers seem to be easier than memorizing the Lao ABCs. The first team to finish their detour is Corinne and Eliza, Leo and Jamal finish second, Victor and Nicole finish third. Becca and Floyd finish the skewers fourth but have to head over to the other detour challenge now. They still managed to be in eighth place after doing both challenges. Tyler and Korey and Rupert and Laura are the last two teams still working on their detours. Korey and Tyler are now heading to the other Detour.
The teams are starting to get to the Road Block challenge where they will have to ride elephants to a specific destination and command them using commands in Lao. All the teams get there, but Nicole and Jamal are in first and second place. Korey and Tyler finished both detours and still got there ninth with Rupert and Laura getting there right after them.
The teams are now heading to their Pit Stop for this leg of the race. They said that the last team to check in MAY be eliminated. Here is the order the teams checked in at the Pit Stop:
- Leo & Jamal ($2500 each as an additional prize)
- Nicole & Victor
- Rachel & Elissa
- Colin & Cristie
- Janelle & Britney
- Corinne & Eliza
- Tyler & Korey
- Chris & Bret
- Becca & Floyd
- Rupert & Laura
Rupert & Laura have been eliminated from The Amazing Race.
