    Episode 2 tonight! Looks like we're going to be pushed back a little bit here in the East, with the football game tied with 48 seconds left. :rolleyes: Oh well.. excited for the episode anyways!!

    ETA: 5 minutes late on the East coast tonight.

    ETA again... uhmmm.. apparently not all of the East coast is behind. Sorry about that! :yikes:

    They should do the check out challenge. The Ghana funeral customs are really cool.

    What were the rules for this task? Was their a minimum price they could sell? Missed the beginning.

    I wonder why so many are doing the tv, the coffin seems definitely easier

    ETA: Chad and Stephanie came to the mat with full backpacks, but the first few teams only had small fannypacks. I wonder where they left all their stuff?

    Mom and daughter may enjoy getting to know each other better at the resort they stay at while the race continues.

    Love beauty pageant girl asking if anyone's died of a heart attack on the mat.

    You're upset about that? They are the main source of comic relief on this show.

    They were funny last week, but they weren't shown as much on this week's episode. Besides, I picked them to go next.

    I looooove Team Glee. They are so entertaining, fun, and nice. I hope they make it to the finale.

    I'm so glad the sunglass challenge didn't do in the doctors.

    Team HSN rocked this leg! :cheer2: It would be a surprise is they hadn't done well at the selling challenge, but they did great on the antenna challenge as well. Blonde HSN is chirpy to a fault but she was really in her element here.

    I had totally forgotten about Team Volleyball, but they also had a great leg. Glad they saw right away that the coffin task was the smarter choice - plus they picked the piano, which looked to be the easiest model to move (flat, compact). They're still not memorable people, but showed they are a strong team.

    Glad the docs managed to jump up a couple places with their killer cabbie. I wish they'd come in ahead of Team Glee, though. but PML at the crazy traffic cam!! :yikes:

    Sad to see Team Gilmore go :( I was hoping it would be Malloy + Dad.

    Loves me some Smillory ... a screechy ball of exuberance and make-up ... she's the daughter my TAR Goddess Tina :glamor: never knew she had.

    I thought the same thing. I should have put them in my final four; I don't care how bad she and her dad have been so far, she and Blonde HSN will be there until the end just to make me suffer from terminal perky.

    I wonder if Mallory can convince an airline to bring in another plane, just for her.

    Me, too. Mallory is so screechy, I suggest that the editors give her subtitles all of the time. What was she screeching on about African babies in the cab?

    One thing that made me laugh about Blonde HSN was how much she was going on about her sales skills, but I think a large part of her success was because she is a little, hot blonde. Although, I guess she DID figure out her target market pretty quickly. Weren't all of her customers male? Jill wasn't having the same success, but she seemed to be targeting mostly women.

    Loving the Doctors, YouTube Family, and The Gleeks the most.

    If she's truly Tina's, it will happen. And :drama: perhaps, unlike Tina, Mallory will get the gratitude she deserves from her fellow racers for her '2nd plane' largess.

    Speaking of obnoxious-ergo-Final3, did Chad get "sorta" charming this episode? Not charming charming, but clueless, "I'm being charming selling these sunglasses" charming? Maybe he'll just be borderline insufferable when he and Steph pull a Dumbielle & Eric and outrace two girl-girl teams in the finale?

    She just wanted to hug those little African babies! Squeeeeee! :p

    Beefcake and I have the same taste in men, and it would appear it ends there.

    This leg almost gave me a heart attack! I picked the Docs, the Gleeks, and Screechy Mallory for the final 4. I liked Team Gilmore, but it was obvious that they were there as a bonding opportunity and not really to race.

    Team Tattoo had me thinking that I might have underestimated them for maybe 10 minutes. I still haven't recovered from the fact that Vicki didn't know what Stonehenge was. Really? Who hasn't seen European Vacation?

    Now it really feels like fall.....Project Runway is in full force; Survivor has me screaming at the TV, and I spend my Sundays wishing that 60 Minutes was really 30 Minutes and football would be banned from television so that I can watch The Amazing Race on time and uninterrupted!

    The one advantage (as a tv viewer) of living on the West Coast is that I don't think TAR has ever been delayed or interrupted :lol:

    I think ya'll are underestimating Miss KY. You don't win southern beauty pagents without being able to :kickass: and not even break a nail. Bless your hearts. She and Daddy have the worst possible luck with cars but they still managed to get to Phil.

    Not me! I think they're smart as hell. They are the only team that got across in that boat without getting a drop of water on them. That was after Daddy changed the tire when they got a flat. Not all beauty queens are as useless as Caite!

    The mother-daughter team are gone - the woman who gave up her daughter for adoption and then they reunited for the show.
