I hated that Abbie and Ryan blew right past Amy and Daniel, after Amy helped them out. I hope karma bites them hard in the butt and they get eliminated soon. I would hate for them to win $2,000,000. Yes, I know "it's a game" and all that but still. I want them gone. I'm really rooting for Amy and Daniel now, since they came in second and should have been first.

I don't care for the twins, they're already annoying me. I was hoping the team that got eliminated would go a little further. I like the Chippendale guys but they better get their act together or they'll be next to go.

I was kind of surprised the guy had to eat double the amount of fallopian tubes, since he picked up the papaya with his hands. I just figured they would go on their merry way, but then Phil would inform them of their mistake and they'd get a 30-minute penalty or something. I can't imagine eating one serving of them let alone two! Gag!!

It does amaze me that people don't fully read their clues. After so many seasons and seeing others do it, you'd think they would be more careful.

I could never go on the show because I would be afraid of having to bungy jump or jump out of an airplane. Those are two things I could never do.

The way I view it is they shouldn't have been first if they are willing to share information with other people. If you do that, you have to be prepared for them to use the information to their advantage and the effect it might have on your game.

There is no should have been first. It's whoever gets to the mat first.

I wonder what would have happened if both the first and second teams would have stepped onto the mat together. Would AR have to give them each that deal for the 2 mill? I guess we'll never know. (I wonder what the % of teams who have won have also won the first leg.)

Wow, huge news. Ryan just tweeted that if they win the 2 million at the finale, that he's promised that half of it will go to Amy's charity (AAS, not sure what it stands for). So we'll see if this happens?

Aren't they done filming and there's already been a winner?

Yes, but they're bound legally not to reveal any of the ending.

Could very well be. But isn't there some sort of confidentiality/gag in place that they can't say who the winners are until the final episode airs? Could be a way to throw everyone off. I though I heard (I was folding laundry during the "upcoming show" clips) him say "You just cost me 2 million dollars!"

Goat farmers are actually ex Martha Stewart employees. They will use some of their Martha tricks during at least one of the challenges- so they say.

We too were yelling at the TV NOOOOOOOOO! when Amy told them where to go. She seemed to realize right away her mistake and I feel for her. She thought everyone would be kind but it's a game. I thought they should have let them go first- but I get why they didn't and his tweet of giving away half at this point makes me believe they don't win in the end and he just doesn't want to be the bad guy all season.

When Chippendales gave the info to the other team it wasn't as big an error because they knew they could outrun them and they knew exactly where they were going.

Love it- so far really don't have a favorite team. The rock stars seem to be my daughter's favorite. Nobody else really stood out strong for me yet.

This is exactly what I was thinking but didn't manage to say!

Was anyone else surprised that some of the teams didn't seem to know what an abacus was? Or to think that they should find it at the Bank of China?

I like the Rockers, the farmers and the couple that came in second so far, but it is early.

I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I watched. Loved it as usual. No super favorites quite yet ... but the twins are already grating on me with the squabbling. And the fact that both their voices are the SAME! aarrrgh. Anyway, definitely liked Amy and Daniel. Not "stuck" on many of the others quite yet - but neither the rock stars nor the teachers do much for me.

I, too, was amazed that there were people not reading the whole clue.

Looks to be a fun show again!! My DVR is SET!!!! Woooo!

When someone called it an "aca-bus", my jaw dropped. Is it really that unfamiliar of an item?

I like the goat farmers the best so far.

Oh, and this is the first season DH and I have watched. It's one of those shows we never got into, but both agreed we should give it a shot this year.
