It sure wouldn't be as interesting to watch and instead of real people it would be just be a stunt show with stunt people.

So sorry to see the Doctors go. To bad they didn't switch tasks earlier. The newlywed's have GOT to GO.

Thank You. I think they should be embarrassed for themselves. How quickly was one of them urging the other to quit and take the penalty?

As a Canadian, I'm hardwired to root for the hockey players. Joke aside, I think they are pretty funny and seem to have a great relationship.

So far the Roller Derby Moms and the Hockey guys are my favorite.

I could have seen any of the bottom 3 go and be happy. The twins whined a lot. And I don't understand why if you're going on the Amazing Race and you don't know how to swim/are afraid of the water, you don't go out and get some swim lessons!

Exactly!! I would want to find a local pool and spend a lot of time there getting used to swimming, being underwater, snorkeling, etc.

And when the doctors were only bringing one clam at a time up to the boat to check it, oh my gosh!! Common sense guys! That just proves my point that well educated people don't always have much in the common sense department. I was sorry to see them go though, I did like them.

I hope the father and son can continue the race. I don't know yet which team I'm really cheering for, but I do know it's NOT the newlyweds. Can't stand her, she is just a complete....can't say it here.

Moving over from the spoiler thread. So far, the hockey players and roller derby moms are my favorites.

Was glad to see the doctors go, just because they didn't bother to learn to swim.....really, did they learn nothing from the "twinnies" last season?!? Practice, people.

Team You-tube & the country girls & mullet man don't bother me & I enjoy watching them. I do NOT enjoy the newlyweds or the team with the 2 express passes. (Both is more the male than female bothering me at this point!)

Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!

New Zeland is beautiful! That water was so blue. I don't think the Dad/Son team is going to last long with the boot on his foot. If I were him, I'd want to get back home to see a US doctor.

I like the double legs. They haven't done one in a while.

I know the Dad/SOn team wanted to be first but I think they bailed on fishing too soon. If there was even a hint of staying in the race I would have save the Express Pass for a harder task. I am not sure if they will continue

I can't believe Dad/son are considering quitting now. Unless he is in terrible pain, why not continue until they come up against a task that is just impossible? For all they know the next one might be an eating or a puzzle task...

At first I was yelling at the father/son team to keep trying the fishing - they had some time yet.

But, by using the express pass, they were able to come in first and won a trip to Bangkok. Not too shabby. They KNOW they won't be able to finish the race so they might as well get one prize. IMHO, they might as well try the next part of the leg. If it proves too difficult or just impossible, they can then hang it up at that point. But dad does need to get proper care for that tear before he does irreparable damage to his leg. Fine line there.

I must admit, it was genius for the team with the 2 express passes to give it to the father/son team. 1 - they fulfill their end of the bargain with the alliance but, more importantly, 2 - they get rid of it to a team with no chance of being a long-term threat to winning the race.

Totally agree. Now the express pass is gone so they don't have to worry about later on down the road and get beat out because of it.

Dad did well with the crutches, must have used them before or had this problem before to know exactly what it was.

Agree with you on all counts. I definitely got the feeling that the father-son team was happy enough to win a stage and a prize and if that's it, they were ok with that.

I think it was very smart to give the father/son team the pass and for them to use it. I'm so happy they got a trip out of it .
