On leg #2 of the Amazing Race, Mel had me worried. He was in Germany getting ready to parasail off a mountain top. However, he could not do it for a long time because the wind conditions were not permissible. His other alternative was to run or walk down a gravel hill and that would have taken one hour. Because of his groin, he believed that he could not descend that hill so he had to wait for the wind to change in his favor. Meanwhile, the other teams took the option of descending the hill. Mel was getting fretful that he and Mike would be the last at the pit stop risking elimination. He was also saying that he could not ask the Deity to calm the winds so he can do the parasailing. Good news is that the winds did calm down. Mel did the parasailing. The next task was to do a Segway obstacle course. The option was to throw frosted cakes between Mel and Mike at their faces until they find a cake with cherry filling. They did the Segway although I wanted them to toss the cakes at each other.
They came in second at the pit stop.
