I was blown away by the generosity of the people of Bangladesh. For a country that seems to have so little, they still gave when it was needed.

Amazing, really.

That's right! There are not too many people that are hated more than Mr. Potter... and the twins just did the same thing.

Race or no race, you just don't do that.

It appears the people who gave the Rockers the money were far from the poorest people in Bangladesh. They went looking for more prosperous people. It's likely that the woman who spoke English so well is highly educated and relatively well off. Plus the appeal of the TV cameras and having 10 seconds of fame cannot be overlooked.

Forget about a penalty for taking the money. Why didn't Trey get eliminated for wearing those too-short Texas state flag shorts? Nothing against Texas, but those shorts were hideous.

Another questionable fashion choice: wearing a souvenir Bangladesh T-shirt seems kind of wrong to me.

That bazaar where they sold the juice didn't look exotic or exciting. Just a Turkish version of any antiseptic, soulless, sterile American shopping mall.

I am SO HAPPY to see the Monster Truck guy sent home. After his outburst that the boat driver just cost him a million dollars, I just had this total disdain for him. I didn't mind the wife, but he just needed to go.

I can't wait to see the next episode. I feel so bad for the Rockers!
I have never liked the Twinnies, they grate on my nerves with their incessant shrieking. Now I abhor them. Don't these people understand that this is on television and that the behaviors they display while racing go home with them? Would you hire a thief?

Thank goodness the monster truckers are gone!

Bummer about the twins. That was not cool. Was that Texas who conspired with them? They are just as guilty since they didn't say anything and they took half the money.

I liked the twins, until they stole the money last night. A PP said they didn't steal it, yes they did. The money was not theirs and they KNEW who it belonged to, they took it, they stole it. I will not root for thieves. And I was so disappointed in Trey and Lexi for going along with it. They had been the team I was rooting for most, but no more. Both of those teams need to go home ASAP.

I am rooting for Chippendale guys, and the rocker/lawyer guys who had their money stolen from them.

Yep, feel the same way. I follow The Amazing Race on Facebook and each week you have to answer a question on their page to get entered into the drawing for the Ford car. Anyways, they asked how you felt about the Twins not giving the money back. 99.9% of the people thought it was wrong. One person was so mad that they even asked that question and questioned The Amazing Race why they would even ask such a stupid questions.

My dh and sons were in Vegas last week and my son told me their are billboards signs with James and Jamieson picture with The Amazing Race advertisements. I asked my son if he went to their show I would of went, darn.

Sometimes there are teams that you like or dislike immediately. This season I've been on the fence about most of them--only recently warming to a few (including the twinnies). But stealing? It's definitely given me a picture of the teams that I DON'T want to win! I'm rooting for the rockers now!

I missed the first part of the show last night. What happened that the 2 teams where on a plane 9 hours late? I was very impressed at how they committed to working together. I was not a big fan of one of the teams prior. I'm seeing them in a new light. I sure hope the rockers find their stuff. They have about 8 hours to do so considering 2 teams are 9 hours behind.

They were on the same plane and missed their connecting one, which was suppose to get in at 4:00 am but had to wait until 3 the next afternoon.

Which made it really hard to put a time line on when they got to the pool etc. to when the rockers were at the mat.

They must have gotten in around 4:00, because they wanted to do the Library Roadblock, but someone read the Library closed at 4:00.

I have a feeling the Rockers are going home and those 2 teams are going to find out they are still in the race. It is obvious that one of the guys cannot do the water ballet. They should of just left with the other team and taken the penalty.

They had to get to the museum and then to those two men in the red to get the library clue. So we really only know that it is after 4:00 then, how much who knows.

I am thinking the rockers are out too unless someone hands in there stuff.

So sad...I really don't want the rockers to be out. I hope they get their stuff back and I am thinking they will. I also don't really want the 2 teams who missed their flight to be out....really wanted the twins out the most. Of the 2 teams still at the pool...I would rather Ryan and Abby be out but I think the Beekman boys will tell them to go ahead when they can't do the water challenge. I can't see the Beekman boys going too much farther anyway. I still am most rooting for the Rockers and then the Chippies...but after them I still like the Texans and then the Beekman Boys...then Abby and Ryan (though last night's episode did make them more likable to me...so they may move up on my list)...last are the Twinnies.

I'm thinking (or hoping) that James/Abba will get their stuff back. I do know that Abby and Ryan are definitely still in it because they showed them in next week's previews.

I can't stand the twins. I never liked them to begin with, but I will never be able to get past the stealing. Even if that hadn't happened, I don't think there is anything likeable about them. They're hard workers, but they don't have an ounce of humility -- they think a little too highly of themselves -- huge turn off, IMO.

I saw the first 40 minutes and didn't see the end. Next week's show is a continuation of this one?
