I was bummed about Adam and Brandon last week. I was really hoping for a non-elimination leg. I was really expecting one last night, though -- hmmmm, I guess next week.

Re: the singing challenge. I would have sucked. However, I don't think they were being judged on the melody as much as they were the pronunciation of the words and keeping the tempo. Even the worst one (OK guy) only had like 5 attempts until he received the clue.

Re: the Afghanimals. They got on my nerves the first couple of weeks, but then started to grow on me. However, Jamal (if that's the one with the longer/curlier hair) is kind of a jerk. He has made some comments that seem to be coming from a mean place instead of just a competitive place. I really didn't like how they denied U-turning the beards either. Just admit it -- people will understand why you felt like you had to -- but to just flat-out lie. I don't dig that.

I'm glad y'all brought this up. I think the "bunnies" are the baseball wives. While we were originally introduced to them as the "Baseball Wives", everyone else refers to them as the "Bunnies". In fact, they refer to each other as "Bunny" all of the time. I'm guessing they were Playboy Bunnies at one time, hence, the name.

Okay, strike what I said. LOL I looked it up, and, evidently, although the other teams call them "The Bunnies" and they do refer to each other as "Bunny", it has to do with a term of endearment that they have for each other (started by Nicky's mom when she was little).

I agree, they really didn't have to "sing" in that they were expected to hit the right notes, just pronounce the words acceptably enough and keep the tempo, as you said. There were some seriously TONE DEAF performances going on there that still managed to garner the next clue.

I enjoyed watching that challenge.

I really thought it would be a non-elim week.

I actually like the afghanimals, the baseball wives and I think Marie is funny. I don't like the ER docs at all, I feel like they are a little too big for their britches. Would love to see them go.

Now off to watch DWTS!

Not only that....her first thought was "Let's say the Afghanimals stole their cab." True colours!

I want anyone to win BUT that nasty pink hair Marie. She is horrible, not a nice person at all and does not deserve the money.

Two of my favorite teams have been eliminated, but there are still two I like although I haven't been able to remember names even yet. I like the doctors, and the team of two young boys. Would love either of those to win, but like I said...anybody but pink hair!!

And I'm getting so freaking tired of stupid football running overtime every Sunday night!!

I forgot about that -- then they stupidly left their bags in the cab, so it was obvious who took it from them.

He said that he wouldn't have done any better.

anyone watch?

Obviously it would be a non-elim leg, they had to do one eventually.


I'm sorry, but I can't stand ER doc Travis, his poor wife kept saying she was sorry and unless the AMR editors are real jerks, I didn't hear him say "that's okay, we'll fix it." I felt so bad for her.

I'm glad my afghanimals won. I was so happy to see the baseball bozo's screwing up the dates when they wouldn't tell anyone about the other table. Karma's a you know what.

The double u-turn next week should be interesting.

I agree with you emmabelle. From a personal stand point I do not like Marie and Tim, well mostly Marie. However I do have to say that even with all their arguing they still do well. I cannot wait until next week with the double U-turns.

I had for years wanted to apply to this show but my job prevents me from doing so.

I'm glad the Afganimals won and I'm also glad the Baseball Bunnies were not eliminated . I didn't mind when the BB's tried to sneak the other dates back to their work station, but I also thought it was foolish of them to not to tell the others where the dates were when asked directly. They blew a chance to curry a favor. I'm worried about them next week with the Speed Bump and the Double U-Turn. Since they were not playing nice with those other teams they have a big target on their back for being U-Turned.

Did you notice that Phil didn't give the speech about the speed bump?
