less From the left, Regina Villalobos and Robert Perales with SAAF and event MC Vanessa Macias Ballou at the Threads of Hope IADT fundraiser fashion show for San Antonio AIDS Foundation, Thursday, December 2, 2010 ...more Vanessa Macias jokes that her preparation for the CBS reality show “The Amazing Race” consisted of “eating lots of Nutella and drinking lots of wine.” The San Antonio TV personality admits some extra time on the treadmill would have helped her prepare for the reality show that pits teams of two against one another in various challenges as they travel through five continents.Vanessa and her sprained ankle had a lot of trouble with this task, and she and Ralph lost precious time as she struggled to finish.He told her to quit and they'd take a penalty, but she pushed through and got it done. They either had to play a game of "Sushi Bingo" (teams had to indentify the correct types of fish with a letter flag stuck in them, and place them in the right spots on their bingo card until they had a row of five), or get 10 groups of three locals each to pose for pictures with a cutout of sumo wrestlers.While she's fit and in great shape — Macias is probably best known to San Antonio audiences as the spokeswoman in World Car ads and the adventurous host of local travel show “Vamos! It was great to experience this with someone fun,” says Macias, a San Antonio native who works as a freelance writer while continuing her career in local television.” in 2009 — she says she was outmatched physically by her partner on the show, boyfriend Ralph Kelly, a personal trainer and bar owner from Boerne. Billed as “Dating Divorcees” by the show's promoters, each was divorced when they began dating.The first task was to ride a wooden sled called a papa holua down a grassy hill without falling off.Teams then had to roll a painted lava rock into a target on a field. Back at the Hawaiian games, Art was having a lot of trouble with the sled.
Things got worse when Rachel and Dave inadvertently skipped the next challenge - participating in traditional Hawaiian games.
Team Army found a cab driver who knew where to go and were able to lose Art and J. The task was to rappel up one of the 45-story buildings, scan the city below for the next clue and then rappel back down the building face first.
Team Army and Team "Big Brother" had both finished the task before Team Border Patrol, thwarted by a clueless cab driver and some bad information, arrived to start.
Already in a cab, they had to turn around and go back, with Rachel bickering, screeching and crying all the way through.
Helicopters took the teams to a beach, where they took part in a simulated ocean rescue.
Everyone decided to play bingo except for Team Army, who selected the snapshots.
