I don't see how that means anything though. The season is over. If they didn't win, his saying that means nothing.

I'm glad that AR started cause I was going through withdraw since Big Brother ended. As others have said how do you not read the whole clue. Did these people not watch other seasons. This always amazes me when I watch reality shows. I could never do this as the eating challenges always gross me out If you noticed some of the people that were eating in the restaurant seemed grossed out by this challenge. Makes me wonder if this really is something special that they eat.

I agree, for him to even Tweet something like that sounds like a rule breaker.

They probably just found a resturant that was willing to make and serve it. I was surprised at some of the women, that just scarfed it down.

I don't have a team I like yet, sort of leaning towards the twins, but the monster truck guy seems arrogant. Give him credit for eating the 2nd portion after they figured they read the clue wrong.

That could have been from how they were eating it slurping it off of the table. You never know the time frame of when things happen.

I agree it was silly to tweet about donating half of the 2 mil. The race is done.

The best pronunciation of abacus was when one team said, A-BACK-US.

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.
Welcome to the club! This is the only realty show I watch. I love seeing where they travel and the challenges that reflect that country's traditions.

Okay, I'm all caught up!

I'm always amazed on the first episode how it seems like the racers have never seen the show. The guy who on the bridge was scared of heights...the guy who didn't read the clue...when she gave out the location of the abacus. Not to mention the people who don't know what an abacus is! Wow.

The first thing I'd do if I found out I was going on the Race, would be to go sky diving. Get that out of the way. Then I'd start training for a marathon.

I cringed when she gave out the location of the clue. This is a RACE, you're not there to make friends!

I think my favorites so far are the Chippendales. I think they're funny. I don't think I have any others that I would consider a favorite. I cannot stand the twins though. They can go any time now.

Yes, we were surprised, as well.

I don't understand why they didn't make the extra million if you won the most legs and the race. Why the first stage it didn't make any sense from a watching persective, or a compettion.

You know that the team that won the first leg has to win the race to get the additional million, right?

Okay, I still do not have any favorites but I definitely do not like the Monster Truckers. I'll come back when more folks have watched the show.

So very disappointed for the team that went home last night, they were my favorites. And I hate it that it was because of a poor taxi driver. Now I'm not sure who I'll be cheering for, heck I can't even remember their names yet. I do like the Chippendale guys and glad to see they "got it together" and I think they came in third last night. I like the twins, although they are loud. I like Trey and Lexi (I think that's their names) a lot too. I was kind of disappointed in the "racing of the bulls" challenge. They didn't have to ride the bulls, didn't even have to drive their own scooter. Not all that exciting.
