Oklahoma cowboys win fifth leg of “Amazing Race,” earn $5,000 each
Oklahoma cowboys Jet and Cord McCoy rallied from seventh place to win the fifth leg of “The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business” that aired Sunday night. The brothers from Ada each won $5,000 after they were the first team to reach the pit stop. Cord celebrated by tossing his cowboy hat.
On their first appearance on “Amazing Race 16” last year the McCoys won four legs of the race. Their prizes included three trips and two sailboats as they finished runner-up in their quest for the $1 million prize.
Jet’s ability to erect a life-sized dinosaur replica in a stone forest in China propelled the team from fifth to second place. Several of the other teams stumbled in correctly putting the pieces together.
“I went back and checked the little diagram more than anybody to make sure, as I went, I kind of had it all together,” Jet said.
Last coming into the dinosaur task, Gary and Mallory used an “Express Pass” they earned by winning the first challenge to take the lead. But the McCoys passed them in the stone forest to arrive first at the pit stop and earned the $5,000 prizes.
Finishing last and eliminated from the competition were former NFL cheerleaders Jaime Edmondson and Cara Rosenthal from Florida.
The McCoys had a light moment early in the episode when Cord organized a 3-and-3 basketball game with four other players, including the team of Harlem Globetrotters, Herb Lang and Nate Loften.
Said Jet, “Who would’ve ever thought we’d be playing basketball…”
Added Cord, “Two cowboys”
Jet said, “With the Harlem Globetrotters in China.”
Next week’s episode will take the teams to India.
