Funny when Ryan was doing the time zone thing at the college. He went in there so cocky and then just totally bombed it...I think the Texan and the Chippy did it faster than he did....ha, LMAO!!! I loved how the Chippies were helping the Texans...they are my new fave team (since my fave team is out now...I am so bummed about that, but not sure they could go much farther with the bad knees). I was super impressed with the Beekman Boys' performance with both the time zone thing and then the famous historical leaders task. Abby and Ryan or the Twinnies can go next week...please please please.

Highlight to read. Didn't want to spoil it for those that don't want to know.

James and Abba.

I can't believe they didn't tell us in the very end if he got his passport back! Or how long it took to get a new one, wish we were updated on that. Hysterical when her pants split.

Ryan and Abby are growing on me. I think I would have been super frustrated with the zone challenge as well. And it took several tries for Lexi and James to get it. And it was Lexi who ahd the ahha moment. I love James and Jaymes attitude, they are my faves right now. I felt soooooo horrible for James and Abba. I get hoping that somehow some way they would get the passport back...what a stinky way to go out. But their attitude througout it all was amazing.

I know the Rockers had to start later, but it just seemed like the took so much time dealing with the Passports.

They never showed what the Speed bump in the road was. And why they were with some Religious Person.

When they got to the Matt, didn't Abba say, they found one Passport, or "not a one". The Embassy should have been able to get them replacement Passports in 24 hrs. But maybe the 24 hrs were not up yet, before they had to check in with Phil.

I did miss the start times this week. I know James & Abba were behind the Beckman Boys last week, but were they so far behind it ate up the 4 hour penalty? I realize some of the teams were really far ahead, but we didn't get to see J&A do the speed bump or any of the challenges. It was as if they were written out at the beginning & that's when I knew there was going to be no passport.

It makes me wonder if they should have started that process as soon as they realized that their passport was missing. I wonder if they were able to review the tape after they were eliminated and nail the cabbie who took their stuff.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed that!

What was with that?! It was so random.

At the end, it showed them in some kind of buggy (like a horse-drawn carriage, maybe?) with some Russian guy. J&A were talking, but I think that was the Speed Bump.

I don't know why they couldn't use their down time to look for the passport, or at least contact the police/taxi company. But, maybe they couldn't because it would be participating in the race while it was rest time.

I'm sorry to see them go, they seem like great guys who were really enjoying themselves.

I guess I'm rooting for James and Jaymes--they just seem like genuinely nice people and good sports. It was hysterical watching the twinnies rip their pants.

I can't believe the goat farmers are still in it. I don't care for them, mostly because they seem so clueless and helpless. My money would totally be on the twins in a cage match with the goat boys.

One had his all along, in his pocket. The one with the bad knee was the one who left it in the bag.

It has always bothered me that teams will leave their bags in a taxi. I think that's taking such a risk! So someone got nailed for it. I hope they let us know if they ever recovered their stuff and his passport.

I loved the cooperation exhibited in this episode. The two teams working together on the time zone test and the goatherders helping out on the locks. I don't think I've ever seen that level of cooperation in previous seasons.

And the smirk on the proctor face when the cocky one was struggling with the time zone test was priceless.

I don't think they will mention the passports again. I remember when the mother/son lost theirs in the cab one season they never mentioned that either, just the camera zooming in on it. I think read it after it as all over on line that they had to order another passport and it took 2 weeks to get. They didn't make the finally either because they had no passports.

I agree with everyone about James and Jamyes. Really liking them. Last night was nice to watch the other teams too. No one was screaming at each other. Lots of laughs.
