Me too. I bet Pink's ex-boyfriend doesn't say anything, because he feels he doesn't have to deal with her. Smart guy. I wonder if they were together when they auditioned and then broke up.

I love these European Countries, I hope they stay around in this area. We probably won't see them in Dubai or Egypt. I hope they start making their way down, like into Germany, Switzerland and Italy and then down into Africa.

I don't think I have ever gone this long without disliking some teams (well, except for Pink). At this point, I do like every team still racing. I am very sad Brandon and Adam were eliminated but if they had only finished the first road block and not changed to Polka dancing the result may have been different.

Disappointed in seeing my favorite team, Brandon and Adam, go home last night. They probably should have stuck with the 1st road block and not switched.

I think they would have finished before Leo & Jamal got to the Double U-Turn. It appeared that they had to wait for the other teams to have their turns before the could try again. Add costume changes and running from one road block to the other and it was the kiss of death. I'm really bummed that they were eliminated.

I just read a blog where the author has an problem with the Double U-Turn. He thinks that you should only be able to issue a U-Turn once you finish your task(s). If you are U-Turned you can't issue a U-Turn on someone else until you finish your second task. It makes sense to me since racers can't just happen onto the U-Turn and use it before they finish the task leading to it. What do you think?

I loved the polka task. All the male teams having to deal with the costume and 'who leads' issues was hilarious.

I am SO irritated. I really wish the beards had stayed in it. I cannot STAND the pink haired annoying chick with the Express passes. Honestly, I don't really like many of the teams left at all. The two hippie guys made it super fun to watch because they were having a great time. Mostly everyone else is just whiny and stressed out because they are only focused on winning. Disappointed.

I've been saying that for years. If you've been u-turned, you should have to do the other detour before you can use YOUR u-turn option. I wish they would fix that loophole.

I also don't like what my sister and I call "the great equalizer" - whether it's everybody on the same flight or train or ship, it really stinks for the teams that were hours and hours ahead (like the beards and Jason & Amy were last night).

But doing it that way gives a free pass to some of the teams who are behind the ones who got U-turned and made it to the sign first. That isn't fair at all. I don't like those Geranimals or whatever they call themselves, but they finished before the beards. Why should the beards get an advantage over a team who finished before them?

I agree with you about equalizer.

Can you tell I don't really care for these teams? The only names I actually know are Marie and Amy. I'm just not interested in most of the people this season.

DH and I don't are about any of the teams that are left either. There are a couple of teams that we don't "hate", but we don't really care about them either. All of the fun/funny/entertaining teams are gone.

DW and I are liking the Oklahoma boys and the ER doctors, but Jason and Amy and the baseball wives are all right as well. We can't stand the "Afghanimals" and Marie. the nhl ice girls are okay, they just hitched their wagon to an annoying team, so maybe if the aghanimals leave, we can root for them. unfortunately i agree, the most fun teams are gone already

Because they DIDN'T finish yet, they still need to go back and do the other task. It's a game, since when does it have to be fair?

As long as Amy stays around I'm watching.
