    Hasn't Nick apologized before? How many times does he get to do that before she kicks him to the curb?

    eta: are they savvy enough to flight shop?

    :biggrinbo Me too. I wish there was some way to keep Vicki with a new partner though. :(

    I would have been so aggravated if Nick and Vicki made that flight.

    "Do not cross the border"

    Because it must be SO easy to accidentally (or intentionally) end up north of the DMZ.

    Nick and Vicky are toast. 9 hours behind the rest.

    That raft trip looks awesome. What fun.

    I wonder if the 4th truck crew sat there and waited for N/V

    speed skating :cheer2:

    Oh, no. Brooke and Clarie took a cab instead of the subway. If this costs them a spot in the finals, I'll scream. :wall:

    US Olympic skater, Simon Cho was apparently in the arena when they were filming and witnessed the whole thing. :lol:

    I wonder if the editing is going to try to make us believe that Nick & Vicki can do the entire leg, plus a speed bump, and make up their 9-hour plane deficit all in the entire time it's going to take Brook & Claire to sit out their penalty they'll get for taking a taxi.

    Brook and Claire read the clue!!! No cabs! :wall:

    And if Claire can't skate, don't be stubborn and insist on trying. Sigh.

    But hopefully they're just editing making it seem like Nick and Vicky have any chance whatsoever. 9h is a huge amount after all.

    The skating's fun but I'd be worried about hurting myself before the final leg. :eek:

    30 minutes isn't too bad...considering Nick and Vick are still so far behind.

    I would be so bad at that speed skating task.

    Nick and Vicky still have to white water raft and find the matching headbands. I wonder if they'll even let them finish the leg...

    I feel sorry for Vicki. She was a great racer. She could have won with a different partner.

    I wonder if they had to use Korean Air? Because there were several other airlines that have earlier flights. (they'd still be waaaay behind, but there was a 7:00 am flight, instead of 9:30)

    If the 3 finalists are determined, does the last team have to finish. Maybe Nick will fall out of the raft. :EVILLE:

    ETA: I guess not. ((((Vicki))))

    It's possible they didn't have seats since they need seats for not only the players but their camera crew - and they have to be in coach.
