She could have bought a lot of extensions with $10,000, even if she didn't win the million overall.

I would have done it in a heartbeat, but I don't care what my hair looks like. It grows back. Get a hat and go on!

PML at Vanessa and Rachel "making up." The sincerity just oozed off the screen, didn't it?

Seeing Uchenna and Joyce was rather sad. There's a thread on Sucks about TAR couples who are still together and not, and Uchenna and Joyce are one of the few who have split.

Aw, that does suck.

Phil tweeted that he was talking with Rachel and Vanessa at mat for 40 minutes. Wonder how far behind BPA are?

But of all the reasons to not shave your head, "I just paid $500 for extensions" is one of the stupidest, ...
I had to PML at that one!

From what I think I saw, Rachel & Dave left the pit stop just after 6:30 a.m. while Bopper & Mark left just after 10:30 a.m.

I'm so glad the finale is next week as I was afraid I was going to miss it!

Edited to keep other unspoiled...
Once the episode has aired anywhere, it's okay to discuss anything that's been aired.

Man, I so wanted Bopper & Mark to catch up to BPA :( Love their awesome attitudes to the very end.

elephants were so the way to go. and I love that BPA had to macho it out and do the other task :lol:

:wall: I will never understand women's freakout over shaving their heads in a race of this type. Fer god's sake, it'll grow back! And if most of it is fake, who cares anyway?!?!

Shocker: Vanessa is a complete bitch.

:lol: At the thought of any of these pairs running up to the giant bath mat ... everyone cheering, just Phil up there on the mat ... thinking they've won. But, natch! Go back and finish. Most perfect is that the would-be winning pair is Brenchel, and that it's Vanessa who they pass as they leave the giant bath mat to go complete the task.

I love Vanessa even more after her shit stirring at the pit stop. Hey, it's not her fault -- Phil asked her about "would be" penalties. Girl was just answering. :saint:

:wuzrobbed for Mark and Bopper!! I was so hoping they could eek this one out but really, if you figured the time in your head, there was no way they would ever catch up. They were 3 hours behind Border Patrol to start ... there was just no way to catch up. Maybe if they didn't have to do the Speed Bump they coulda pulled it out. That probably took a good 30 minutes to do. :wuzrobbed

Any articles out there about exactly how far behind Mark and Bopper checked in? Just wondering if they ended up making up any of that 3 hours.

Good gawd Rachel, why all the :drama: over the damn head shaving. Just make a decision and go, don't stand there and whine about it for 10 minutes! If I was in the race, here would be my reactions in learning I had to shave my head: 1) dude just do it! It will grow back, we'll get 1st place and a prize, and I won't have to worry about trying to get my hair washed during pit stops! Second reaction: 2) uhm, no friggin' way. let's go ain't gonna do it. BOOM I would be outta there. I would not stand there and be a big crying whining assed baby about. Just say NO and GO! :P

Oh how I hope it is Brenchel who shows up at the mat and thinks they have won only to find out they didn't, and then someone else wins!! And pplluueezzeee let it be Rachel who screwed something up! Good lord how many times do we have to go over this ...... Read.The.Friggin.Clue!! I'm guessing it must have something to do with not reading a clue correctly.

Man I can't wait for next week! Although I really don't give a crap about who wins now since I really don't like any of them that are left, I just want to see the drama of the million dollar screw up. I just hope Brenchel finishes 4th.

I'll miss Mark and Bopper.

I hope that they have opportunities/offers at home as a result of the show.
Their attitude about the TAR experience is refreshing and wonderful.

I'm just watching now...I can totally understand not wanting to shave your head, as I don't think I'd be able to do it. But of all the reasons to not shave your head, "I just paid $500 for extensions" is one of the stupidest, especially when the person saying it has previously won a million dollars. I have to say, I think I'd be a lot less attached to extensions given that they're fake.

Point of technicality: the prize for winning Big Brother is half a million dollars.

I like Vanessa too but I dislike BB Rachel even more. What a poor excuse for an adult woman she is. Can you imagine her pregnant? I so hope she & her consort are the ones who screw up the finale but so long as they don't win, I don't care who screws up.

:rofl: at the preview... I can't believe someone screws up that bad on the final leg! Oh how I hope it's Brendan & Rachel. Unfortunately wherever they place, they're going to be on to return for a future season :scream:

Yikes, a Brenchel return? If winning TAR20 will lessen the chances of their returning for TARASIII, then I will gladly root for them to take it next week. That's a deal with the devil I'd take since I'm nowhere near :swoon: about any of the other teams racing in the finale versus Brenchel.


Re: the "go back and finish" situation, :watch: a couple of thoughts:

A Twopper made a good point that the Roadblock completion may not be a big deal. ITA ... it could be as simple as going back and ringing a bell, or grabbing [insert product placement prop] ... as little as a couple/five minutes correction.

My thought: as this isn't a penalty (i.e. for something incurred during travel in between stops), and as you'd think that a team wouldn't be given the go-ahead/clue to leave the Roadblock if it wasn't complete, ya have to wonder if the goofed team inadvertently SKIPPED the (final?) Roadblock entirely.

:lol: I laugh, but the latter would be devastating* and forever embarrassing**. (Mitigated *completely/**substantially if you still ended up winning, of course!)

I didn't see next weeks preview, but could it be something like a certain clue specifies WALK from A to B and a team takes a taxi or something instead?

I think KY are shoe-ins for the next TARAS
