Mark & Bopper have faced a number of roadblocks already on “The Amazing Race” this season, but the April 22 episode is going to hold them back in every sense of the word.
As the teams take off to India, one person will be tasked with trying to take on one of the most popular local art forms: Bollywood dancing. While it’s unclear just how much some of the other teams struggle with this, Mark is going to have such a hard time to the point that he wonders whether or not he can even continue for another week.
As supporters of this team (mostly because they are our only real sense of humor left), we have to hope that this preview is one of those traditional red herrings. However, we also have to say that many fan favorite teams (see Kevin & Drew from season 1, Oswald & Danny from season 2, or even Bill & Cathi from last season) have a habit of going out just before they make it to the finale. The one thing these guys have going for them is out of the four other teams, three of them (Dave & Rachel, Brendon & Rachel, and Art & JJ) have shown a habit for fighting amongst themselves to the point where problems come out of it.
If nothing else, we do hope that being on the “Race” will somehow lead to these guys finding a way to actually rebuild their lives after falling on some horrible times financially.
Do you think Mark & Bopper are going to survive this leg?
