    Rats, out of 24 hours in one day this friend of my mum had to pick ~8pm to come by and drop something off? I'll miss 5 minutes, if not more.
    I'll take advantage of the US delay and watch the missed parts on CBS.

    As if it's not bad enough the NFL delays TAR, now they've got Jimmy Jones and the Cowboys on 60 Minutes too.

    Wheee I'm back.

    Poor Nat. I'll do the bungee jumping for her. Or for anyone really, any day.

    ugh, did Katy Perry's record label pay for that excessive "California Gurls" montage?

    I miss final legs where there is more than one bit of travel. It's boring to just go to the final city right away.

    Go Nat, overcome that fear! And I'm really glad it's Brooke and not Claire with the fear of hieghts because I bet she'll just do it like she bungee jumps every weekend.

    I can't believe nobody knows Sancho Panza or Don Quixote (aka his master).

    Jill and Thomas
    are toast.

    I say this every season, but I'm such a dork. I love seeing all the eliminated racers lined up at the finish line.

    I just wish I were spoiled for the ending. I hate not knowing.

    And Nat, :respec: for dealing with your fears.

    ETA: I love the Tournament of Roses Parade and love this challenge for a Pasadena leg.

    For real? Seriously! As for the second part...
    I hope you're right

    Oh, I hear you! I'm so nervous - I want a girl/girl team to win so bad! (esp. the doctors..::shuffle:)

    ETA: Somehow I feel Brooke and Claire will rock this roadblock :lol:

    I was so wrong :lol: I was laughing at all her screeeeeeming though.

    Don't like how the bungee into the helicopter essentially created time between each team that would be heard to overcome. I might not mind it as much if Jill/Thomas were in 3rd :shuffle:

    Don't read if you don't want to be spoiled (winner announced):

    Finally, justice has been made for those f/f teams who were denied a win and who deserved it (Dustin and Kandice, anyone?) and I'm happy to say that the first f/f team to win is my favourite team of the season and one of my favourite teams ever:....Nat and Kat!!!!

    I love this challenge :)
    Kat is doing it so well. I think the fact that they have high stress professions that require a great deal of logical, on the spot thinking and decision making is a HUGE asset on the race.

    I can't believe how badly Jill and Thomas are doing! Ask to go to an internet cafe! Or a hotel. It cracks me up that they just got out in some random neighborhood. :rofl:

    Now that you bring them up I don't recall seeing them? Maybe they didn't get back in time?

    eta...I see above they were.

    Brooke has the right attitude about being a strong woman.

    I finally spotted them. They're in all black. They must've been blending with the shadows. :)

    Loved this season! A high percentage of smart, fun, nice racers and relatively few jerks.

    I know! I was screaming at the TV. :shuffle:

    So happy that Nat/Kat won; they really did well at dealing with tasks outside their comfort zone... and :respec: to Brooke/Claire. Too bad Jill/Thomas had some bad luck, but they really should have thought to go to a hotel with internet like B/C did.

    Aww Mallory and her dad are so sweet.

    Always sad for a season to end... but look forward to the next! Even if I kinda would rather have new teams than all stars.

    Nick and Vicki (she should dump him)
    Gary and Mallory
    um son and Dad
    Brooke and Claire

    Canuck Television did not show the announcement. Unfinished business?

    I think there were too many teams in that clip, unless next season they're having 15-20 teams competing.

    I can't believe Nick and Vicki are back. It's Michael and Kevin, btw. :lol: There seems to be an unusually large number of teams or did this happen before?

    I thought Claire was pregnant? :huh:

    I'm so happy with the finish - two girl/girl teams in the top 2 - and my favorite team winning it. That never happens! :)

    There's like five teams from another season.

    Teams that had trouble, and a couple teams that went out first. I'm guessing they won't last long the second time, either.

    Stephanie is pregnant. I hadn't heard anything about Claire.

    We didn't get the announcement. Can't believe Vicki wants to do that again with Nick:eek: But since she has she's used up her sympathy quota.

    Jill and Thomas seemed to think they had bad luck but I think they just panicked and didn't think straight. The other two teams found ways around their drivers lack of knowledge.
