I would love to see team AmerInd get another chance. Their narrative of whether the daughter could wrest herself from her fathers control was the most compelling of the competitors and I really would've liked to have seen the dad in next week's sexploitation challenge.

The problem is, you have to be available for close to 2 months to compete, and most folks with day jobs can't take that much time off. Hence the "wives of" and mactors and odd combo teams trying to make their mark in reality TV. The first few seasons there really were more average types, and it made the show more lovable.

Let's see "Speidi" take a break from whoring their tired asses to anyone with $200. They can try hauling/rolling some 200 lb. cheese wheels instead. I'd also like to nominate Kirstie Alley and Kate Gosselin as a team, just to see how many legs it would take before one of them killed the other.

I really liked this episode. I like the airline flight selection strategy actually paying off, and in this case it did. They didn't bunch them after they arrived in Lisbon. Hurray. Football guys did the stupid thing of doing something on their own. If you're gonna do something like that, make sure there's one other team doing it with you.
The baseball wives kissed each other on the lips. That's the most lesbianish thing that's ever happened on this show. Isn't that sad.

The NFL guys were screwed by the Chilean travel agent. They were in FIRST FUCKING PLACE when they left Chile.
And what a juxtaposition to see the ER doctors coming in first, while the NFL guys came in last. This really should have been a non-elimination round because that travel agent fucked those guys over.
I love how the baseball wives got the best of the pink haired bitch. FUCK. HER.
At this point, I'm actually rooting for the Okies, even though I hate rednecks. They're so out of their element, it's good that they experience the world. It might make actually expand their minds.
I wouldn't mind seeing the baseball wives win, either.

They were not screwed by the travel agent. How do you figure that? NFL didn't have to take those flights, but they did, their choice. That flight after flight was delayed was certainly not the travel agent's fault.
NFL said themselves that it was a big risk, they admitted knowing that connecting flights is never a good idea on The Amazing Race, let alone two connecting flights. But they chose to do so anyway.
So, if you must place blame, the blame lies with the team that knew they were doing something highly risky.

That ululation of the cousins reminds me of Midnight Express and 9/11, too. I don't have good associations with those sounds, and since this season is already filmed, the guys won't see themselves on air and maybe dial it back a bit.
However, them being college-eduated Americans, they should know how something like that could be perceived by the viewing audience.
And, of course, it's the producers who choose to include it, so what the hell do I know?

How is this the worst cast? It's a group of big personalities who started fighting on the first leg of the race. That's fantastic. The last couple seasons were mostly boring.
I LOVE that the female doctor is going to go toe-to-toe with Jersey girl next episode. The Jersey couple is supposed to give 1 of the express passes away-does anyone know if there's a time limit for them to do it? How long can they hold on to it?
I can't stand Jersey girl but she makes for great tv. I'm waiting for the Boston alpha couple to get into a fight with the Jersey couple. If both survive the next few legs, it's bound to happen.
I want the OK farmers and the Cali hippies to lose next because they seem relatively boring.

I like: The bearded guys, the ER doctors, the young couple, both girl girl teams (and in their credit, both teams are composed by women who seemed to glide on on life easy and by their looks, but the women on both teams are really stepping up to the challenge, without complains, extreme meltdowns, and even a cheery face), the guys from Oklahoma (just because they seem like they need the money the most).

They may or may not have to go back for the clue. The team who was penalized on a past TAR for going to the pitstop without a clue had missed the clue box location entirely. On a really early TAR, a team lost the clue but were still allowed to check in. This is somewhere in between. They did find the clue but left part of it behind.

So I turn mine on and off depending who I watch. Joey is one I don't watch ads for. Some people on YT are actually creative and hardworking, but Joey isn't one of them. He's also become more and more of an entitled asshole the past few months. Including asking his subscribers (mostly teen girls) to donate $100,000 to a kickstarter so he could make this jank CW-reject webseries.

On Sunday CBS saw delays in a number of markets on the East Coast due to NFL overruns. So, with that tentative ratings knowledge in mind and the combo of MBL and NFL on Fox and NBC, 60 Minutes (1.5/4)and The Amazing Race (1.7/4) were down. The reality show fell 11% to a series low.

I expect the ratings to fall even more now that the Beards out of it. They turned out to be one of the most fun teams from all seasons. I'm going to miss them.
Way too much drama with the girls's polka costume from that guy. His partner should have whispered "1 million dollars" into his ear at some point.
Loved seeing the two big guys enjoying a polka moment at that enormous apartment house. Before the dancing, Tim said to Jason: "You look hot..what's your name?" And a-one and a-two..

Like honestly, it's hard enough to make them sing in a foreign language, but to make them learn music and then VOCALIZE that music?

The taxi drama was strange. In a way I understood Pinky's reasoning... no backpacks = unclaimed taxi... so win the race or go for drinks after the show?
The taxi driver took out the backpacks, which suggests that at that point it's anyone's taxi. Why would he do that, and then later say "Oh my. I'm driving the wrong team. You're not my team." Why would he remove the backpacks if he wanted to be sure of keeping his taxi reserved for the backpack's owners?
Sure, it's taboo to hijack another team's taxi, but the taxi driver sent a message by removing the backpacks: "First come, first served."
|by Anonymous||reply 344||11/04/2013|

I think there's a rule that one team cannot touch another team's backpacks. And apparently when the Baseball Wives were trying to get a taxi and saw the J/A's packs in the taxi, they implied as much to the driver. So the driver removed the bags hoping to attract another team.

I like that the Afganimals were U-turned, (not that it made a difference anyway) but the smugness and self-righteousness of The Doctors in their reasoning was off-putting.
Just leave it at "game play" or "strategy". Phil on the finish mat, like Jeff on Survivor, was fishing for the very answer he got and knew the answer before he asked he asked the question.

If he felt like he should do a musical challenge (because he actually sings & plays instruments) then he should have taken it. The whole blaming her and "she'll just have to live with it" might have scored him passive aggressive points, but it nearly cost them the race.
And as awful as Pinky is, demanding that her butt boy do it because he knows more about music than she does was the sound decision.
I actually don't have any problem with female ER doc looking at what another contestant was doing...it's within the rules. Hypocritical, yes.

I don't think they'll win. What I love about TAR vs Survivor is that Survivor really gives the fundie hypocrites a platform to spew their bullshit, thanks to Mark Burnett and Miss Probst.
On the other hand, TAR has always been a little bit cheeky in it's editing, and they REALLY didn't go for all the religious bs posturing, and went out of their way to illustrate the hypocrisy of the "very religious" Travis and Nicole.
The best part? SERVING up a nice slice of humble pie to the two doctors. And it was DEEEEEE-LICIOUS!
The only ones left who deserve to win are Amy and Jason and the Afghanimals. Both teams are decent people who are enjoying the race, as opposed to miserable New Jersey and doctors.
