    :rofl: I was thinking the same thing. You realize this means they'll win the leg.

    Don't tell me Kevin and Michael will miss that flight when it was their idea in the first place. That would just suck.

    I was just going to type that it was the easiest speed bump. I can see I was wrong. :D

    Theoretically, Jill and Thomas could have used their freebie to bypass this roadblock, IIRC that is what the freebie is for.

    But they can't use it until they find the challenge, I'm guessing.

    the sled would be awesome unless you fall off and have to go all the way back to the top. :eek: Building the tent would be really difficult if you've never put up a tent. I'd do the tent.

    I loved the doggies. I would have loved to do that!


    eta. I would do the tent task too but mostly because I would like to meet the Sami people.

    They must be above the tree-line. There were trees when they landed in Sweden but there are none now at the sled or bed task.

    Chad has turned into Nick. I can't believe Jill and Thomas waited to use the pass, although Stephanie is bailing and will probably end up in last place.

    Smart move to use the express pass now though. They would have been in a race for last if they didn't.

    I don't think Chad and Stephanie will be dating much longer.

    We're more a physical couple than mental. :rofl: I kinda hope they win.

    Well, poo. They weren't in my pick four, but I had them in fourth on my list as a wild card.

    I love the Gleeks' attitude. This is probably the first and only elimination that has been an uplifting and still a good-spirited one.

    :( :( for the Jonathan/Connor. I knew they were goners as soon as they mentioned missing their graduation on this leg. Wasn't there another team where a member missed their graduation and were eliminated the same leg, or wait was that ANTM? I think I watch too many reality shows. :rofl:

    Good strategy by Kevin/Michael and Jill/Thomas. Good everything by Gregg/Mallory. Best lines by Nick/Vicki.

    I thought this speed bump was way too easy. Did they even have to drive anywhere to get to it?
