I think it's easier to reason with a CHIMPANZEE than to reason with a tween/early teen!

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.
I was sad to see that team go home, too. Quite honestly, I didn't think they'd be able to go all the way simply because of their limitations. He was dragging, loaded down with both backpacks and her physical limitations were made obvious in the final moments of the first leg. I'm immensely impressed, though, with their determination and spirit and I wish they would have gone a lot farther. They both seem like wonderful people!

Please save me from 5th grade math!
Why oh why do retailers think weird shaped packaging is appealing?

I was also disappointed in who went home. That is just awful that it all came down to the taxi driver. They handled it well, no griping at each other, no yelling and carrying on.

Especially when you compare it to the height difference guys. They had virtually given up when they checked in! That's no attitude to have.

I didn't mind the substitute teachers last week, but I did not like how they QUIT racing and trudged to the pit stop. At that point, I was rooting for Amy & Daniel to catch up!

I think that, while they didn't show it, there had to have been someone off to the side demonstrating how to make the balloon art.

I felt bad for the team that got eliminated. I really don't like the substitute teachers. The Sri Lankan girls grate my nerves. I don't know who I'm rooting for yet.

I don't like their "play by play" on everything they do. A little less talking, please.

I'll admit, I haven't read all the pages of this thread, but.....

WHO GOES ON THE AMAZING RACE WITH WHEELIE BACKPACKS?????

How do you possibly run to the finish line dragging a backpack over the sidewalk, down the street, oops, there's the curb, now back up over the next curb......

I mean, who does that?

(Sorry had to get that out)

Seriously, this has been the butt of no less than two dozen of my jokes since the season started. I just don't get it.

I also do not like the substitute teachers. They have terrible attitudes IMO.

The monster truckers are so bad at the AR it's comical. They're still in it despite themselves!

And the goat farmer's comment something like the gays excel at, balloon animals... that killed me.

The monster truck team are definitely not the first to wheel their backpacks and if I were ever on the show, I would have to wheel my pack. Weak and Older just like the monster team.

I guess I'm in the minority that I like the Sri Lankan twins. I think they are a hoot! In addition, they are smart racers. They chose the correct Detour with the fish and finished first. How many women would have dug right into that fish barrel and get their hair soaked without squigging out?

I like the Sri Lankan girls too, they make me laugh! I'm rooting for the long haired rockers (James Lomenzo woo hoo!) I almost died when I saw the wheelie suitcases dragged along by the monster truckers. They are asking to get beat.
