Another one here sorry to see the doctors go so early. Oh well....

Still don't have a favorite team.

Looks like pops won't be able to continue ('course, who knows, the way that AR edits things, he could be being told that IF it had been worse he'd need to be on crutches.)

Sorry to see the doctors go. They should have switched detours much sooner.

Wished that the other two teams would have been penalized more for not finishing the last task and ending up only an hour and a half behind the other teams instead of 4 hours.

Wonder what is going to happen with the father of the one team now. By the previews he won't be able to race unless he does it on crutches.
I thought last night episode was pretty boring.

How do you not read the whole clue. Every season someone doesn't.

Why wouldn't you go take swim lessons after you were picked for the show.

Oh, I didn't think of that. I hope so. I would like to see them go farther.

I really wanted to slap the twin doctors upside the head. Why not try the other task if you would not snorkel, for goodness sake?!? For that bit of frustration alone, I am glad they lost the leg and are out.

The hockey players are growing on me, and I kind of like the RD Moms. The team that won last weeks' leg reminds me of Meghan and Cheyenne (? I think those weretheir names) - competent and boring.

I would think they chose the task they thought was the lesser of two evils at the time. They were quite surprised how easy and comfortable the second task was and I think they were slapping themselves upside the head.

I don't have any favorites and I don't hate the Newlyweds (yet ). I think Max is just talking trash because he thinks that's what people should do on a reality show. I find it kinda funny he's being such a transparent jerk.

Yeah, it was hard not to yell at the TV, "Why do you sign up for Amazing Race if you can't swim!!!"

Same thing goes for a fear of heights -- you know that's there always going to be at least one or two tasks that involve swimming and something really high. Heck, they've already had one of each.

And most likely eat something gross. Sometime I think some of the contestants have never watched the show before.

ITA with both of you. When you sign up for the race, you ahve to have some clue of what will be expected. At least working on the fear of water, or heights, or whatever would be step 1 for me. And actually, I would never sign up for AR for just this reason--no way could I rappell (sp?) down a building or climb a rock face, I'm too scared of heights.

I don't care for te newlywed couple, liked the doctors(but did they really think there wouldn't be a water challenge???- hello YMCA swim classes!!!!), I like Mullet man actually, the wife is getting on my nerves, apparently, she has never watched Amazing Race, but just signed up for a whim?? And DH had never heard the phrase "business in the front, party in the back" for a mullet. LOL Tell me, have you all heard that? I like several other groups, don't know the names yet though.

Yes all of these are the basics of TAR! Why would you go on this if you could not do these things?????


I wanted to smack the docs for not trying task #2 sooner. Newlyweds are jerks. The team with the Express Pass were annoying me with wanting everyone to kiss up to them. Like Roller Derby Moms and the blondes in blue.

And yes I have heard the saying for a mullet

I think you could tell which ones had been checked, the rebuilt ones didn't look anything like the originals.

I agree with pretty much everything already said here.

I wonder which team won't be able to drive stick??

Gotta say the you-tube team, who I found incredibly annoying last week, kind of grew on me this week. They did a great job with the pearl diving - really good teamwork.
