I'm tired of teams that hate on the team that U-Turned them. It's a GAME.

Anyway - I still love the Chippendales. I liked Abby & Ryan, but I got tired of them these last few episodes because they were constantly down about everything since they weren't winning.

I can't stand the Twins. They are obnoxious.

I really don't like the Texans. They started off being all sweet but over the course of the Race their true colors showed. Being mad at the Chippendales because they might not do what the "plan" was?!

The Beekman boys are sweet, but there's no way they're winning. If they do, I'm fine with that, but I don't think they will.

I'm very firmly in the Chippendales camp. I love them. I love that he was torn up about the U-Turn (but still did it, because it is a game) and that when they were on the boat they were just enjoying that experience, it was just wonderful to see. They're super polite to everyone they meet. I love them. And I died laughing when they pulled out their "costumes." Seriously my favorite thing on this episode.

1. The odds favor you possibly never spending quality time w/any of the other teams, so use the U-turn. Time to look out for number one.

2. Why on earth would you feel bad about not going w/another team and rooting them on while they did their U-turn? Geez, guys, they'd turn on you in a second.

3. Twinnie, twinnie, go away, come back another day....no, wait, just go away. PLEASE!!!!!!

Buh bye Abby and Ryan. Kharma sometimes takes it's time, other times it's right on time. I have not forgotten how they outran the handicapped girl that first round.

Ok Jaymes acts like he fell off the back of a turnip truck. But I think I am on team chip from now on.

I have no problem with U-Turns. Yeah, it sucks, but it is a part of the game. For Ryan to say they lost the game because of Jaymes & James is stupid. They should know that if J&J hadn't U-Turned them, one of the other 2 teams would have. They were a prime target, considering they were going for the 2 mil.

I'm also firmly in the J&J camp.

I love the boys, they're so cool and funny, I was sad to see the rockers go the sisters are annoying and mean, ever since they stole the rockers money and calling the cab driver fat is not nice.
I think the U turns are part of the game and they would had used it too, they were going to turn their 'friends' so I don't know why they get angry.

Totally agree!! I was praying it wasn't a non-elimination round. So happy Abby and Ryan are gone!! I wanted ANYONE but them to win!!

Agree with this too!!

I am so hoping they win! Or the goat farmers. Stopped liking the Twins when they stole the rockers' money, and stopped liking Trey and Lexi at that time when they agreed to steal it.

I was thinking back to the beginning of the season when Ryan tweeted (?) that he'd give 1/2 the winnings to Amy... to charity in her name... something like that if he won the race. Yeah, after watching Abbie and Ryan race, there's no way in HELL he'd do any such thing if they would have wound up winning the 2 mil. I can't imagine he'd even donate a fraction of a mil.

I'm glad he's out. Now for the twinnies....

I didn't shed a tear when Abby and Ryan were eliminated. I was "meh" about them ... I didn't like them and I didn't dislike them.

My favorites are the Chippies. I'm not too fond of Texas and the Twinnies for their theft of the Rocker's money. However, I can't help but admire how the Twinnies are racing. They are working well together and it seemed to be their idea to work the double U-Turn to their advantage. I'm glad that the other teams kept around the Beekman boys. It would make me if they came back from behind to win it all.

So glad to see Abby & Ryan gone. Good strategy to waste the other U-turn so they couldn't use it on the Beekman boys. I feel sort of bad for Abby; it seems like she has a better attitude, and just wants to melt away in shame when Ryan gets all hissy and embarrasses her.

Good for Jaymes & James to use the U-turn, even though they felt bad about it. I hope they win it, racing in the finals against Trey & Lexi and the Beekmans, simply because the twins are so annoying that I have to mute the TV when their mouths are moving.

Great points! So glad Jaymes and James used the U turn, (it is part of the game...nothing like stealing money), and also happy to hear that the Beekmans are committed to racing and doing their best for as long as they can. We've had all we can take of the earsplittingly loud and annoying twinnie-talk...as soon as they start to speak, we hit the mute, too.

I mean they were planning on uturning the two guys they teemaed up with weren't they? I figured that is why she made it to the jiosk first.


I think it was great strategy. The two guys seem to me to be a weaker team.

Abby & Ryan knew they would be Uturned and planned on using the U turn on the goat farmers. I'm glad it didn't work out for them. Good strategy for Trey & Lexy to use the other U turn because it left no out for Abby & Ryan. I wonder if they were able to use the U turn and all 4 of them got to the mat at the same time what would happen? The twins can go next they are so annoying, but they do work well together and have a good attitude. I just can't get past them stealing the rockers money.

Glad Abs and Ry are gone. His attitude stinks. I wish the twinnies would be next but I am guessing they won't be. They do have such determination and that is hard to beat. I am rooting for team Chip...c'mon boys! They have the best attitudes. Their mammas should be proud!

They would be my Number 1 team by a LONG shot if it wasn't for the money .
