I was never a huge fan of the rockers, but man, what a crappy way to go out if that is what ends up happening! Though they aren't my favorites, I'd definitely rather see them pull off a win before some of the other teams that are still left. Hopefully by some miracle they can get their stuff back.

I haven't watched all of the seasons of AR, only the last few since Jeff & Jordan were on it, but I do have a question. Say this had never happened with the rockers and they checked in as usual. If the last 2 teams stay together and hit the mat at the same time, how does that work for elimination? Or even if it's a non-elimination leg, who gets the Speed Bump?

I was personally pretty surprised that Abbie & Ryan decided to stay and support the Beekman boys until they completed the challenge. I could have totally seen them agreeing to run the leg together and abandoning the guys when they completed the synchronized swimming task.

They did show in next week's highlights a clip where the rockers are using somebody's phone. I'm hoping they're calling the cab company and getting their stuff back. They probably have time.

I'd laugh if they were told, "You're all the last teams to arrive. I'm sorry to tell you that all four of you have been eliminated from the race."

So what did the Twins do wrong at the Tree of Love? I couldn't figure it out.

I respect what Abbie and Ryan did to a point. Once they finished the swimming challenge and decided to wait for the farmers, I was surprised. They're going to have a lot of trouble finishing that challenge with no swimming skills.

It really was confusing. But I think when the first key was found to open the lock, the next key in the chain of keys opened the next lock, etc., I think one of the twins said it took them over an hour to figure it out.

James and Jaimes have my vote now. I like how James told the twins not to use their fast pass and save it because the other 2 teams were so far behind. I wonder how long they were really in that pool. Ballet swimming is really hard and to learn a routine, I was thinking they had to be there at least 6 hours.

Yup...I would have done the library and toughed that out before ever even thinking about water ballet...yikes! Kudos to the teams that did it.

Me too! They are my new favorites! I like them more and more with every challenge. I am enjoying the Texas team as well, and I'm impressed at how well they are doing in the race.
I'm not sure which challenge I would have picked. I have a dance background but I also know the Russian alphabet - so I think it would come down to what my partner felt more comfortable with.

Alright, what the heck. Amazing race is supposed to be on and it's some crap about college football. (Apologies to anyone who enjoys college ball, I just want my amazing race!)

We got AR early tonight, due to Music Awards being shown at 8:00. Then when I flipped to CBS, and 60 Minutes hadn't even started, I said a to the CTV execs!
One interesting thing....they didn't show the times that the teams left this week.

I noticed they didn't show us!

But the Academy opened at 10am, so that gives us a little bit of an idea.


This week's episode is unintentionally hilarious. The twin's driver wanting to take them to McDonald's and the James' driver taking his time as he had a cigarette, coffee, and pastry.

I am still lol literally from when they showed the split heard round the world... That made this whole season of them and their "twinnie... twinnie" crap so worth it.
