We'll be on time!
I was just coming to see how long the delay was going to be.
Phil will once again be tweeting during the East coast broadcast of the show.
I want Pa to scale that mountain tonight. Do. Not. Come. In. Last.
On time here in Florida, but I know there's some other parts in the Eastern/Central time zones that are delayed about 20 minutes.
Mystery couple! No idea who these people are.
On time here in NC! Yay!
Can these people not read? Phuket = Bucket?????
Ooh was someone wishing for airport finagling?
Hmmm....the later flight might be ahead if they don't have to go to Bangkok first.
If they're not sure how to say it, Pucket is safer than the alternative.
loving the taxi drivers this season!
Go Ma and Pa!
Team Who part two!
I liked that the guys all took a risk; too bad it didn't pay off.
why didn't the first 2 teams book their itineraries all the way through? Such a stupid mistake. At the very least get a flight guaranteed and then when you're at your connecting city, look for something better. for the bottom 6 teams for booking all the way to Phuket!
It wouldn't hurt my feelings if DadZac went tonight. I really need ma and pa to make it.
Boarders will do fine, but I see big problems for the others with the coral reef building. That current is pretty strong.
Did they maybe change the rule back to once you have your flight you have to take it (like season1). In that case it was a decent gamble, but it obviously didn't work out.
There are people who still come on the Amazing Race who haven't taken swimming lessons? Really?
Did any of them make the coral reef task except the Boarders? Who did it in 13 minutes.
I would have picked the chair option unless my partner was an amazing swimmer!
i'm worried for the twins.
Sandy should shove that umbrella up Jeremy's rear.
Tommy and Andy smoked everybody else! They must be an hour ahead.
That rock climb looks pretty tough too.. really physically demanding leg.
The Bickersons did very well this leg! at Phil imitating The Look by She Bickerson.
I love the Boarders.
And Marcus is funny. I hope he and his wife make it to the finals. Come on Ma and Pa get your buts to the rock climb.
The boarders really are impressive. I can see some teams struggling with that. Good for Jennifer too.
I think the twins might have a nervous breakdown. And now Ernie/Cyndi are lost.
Interesting that the twins are "ocean lifeguards" and didn't choose the task that involved swimming...
"The wives are coming on the trips with us" - when the boarders got their prize.
I loved that quote. Apparently they were just going to go together, rather than split the up and go with their wife. Haha
I like the boarders, but I really don't want to see them stomp all over the competition. It's going to get really boring for me if they're winning every single leg all season long.
The Boarders are excellent racers: they pay attention to the clues and have handled the physical tasks with ease. And they're having a ball.
Mr. Navigate around the world is lost
Come on PA. You rock.
AWWWWGGGGHHHHHH a NEL I wanted to make up points.
I wanted an elimination as long as my favorites aren't the last to arrive.
Ahhh, they're named Jeremy and Sandy
Everyone else just pointed out the location on the map and left it to their boat captain - the super sailors tried to figure it out using the compass and called it a simple navigational task. Ha! Ha! No on else appeared to get lost!
Yes the navigation troubles of DadZac were
Forgot to mention that I loved Ma talking about "enjoying the view" while she watched Pa climb. They're wonderful!
My favorites are the Boarders, Ma and Pa and Marcus/Amanti (Amani?).
I agree. I really like them, they are very efficient, and pay attention. But I like things mixed up and some guessing as to what will happen.
Climbing challenge - I am assuming the editing made it seem easier than it came across.
Bro/Sis - not as bad this episode, but I want them gone, along with bickering couple that I only seem to have seen them this episode and the last one.
But love Phil and Jennifer doing looks. hee hee
Marcus & Amani -seem like a really cool couple and parents.
Bill & Cathi - hope they stay in for awhile.
Twins - liked them until their meltdown.
ZacDad - definitely had a negative preconceived negative for them, but they are ok as racers.
OK, random question.
Did anyone else keep hearing Laurence say "F*ck it" instead of Phuket?
Loving the boarders- I didn't think I would at first. Also love Bill and Cathi- they seem fun, and I like their strategy of having him do tasks since they don't know how long they'll be in the race. I hope they stay in longer than they think. Marcus & Amani are growing on me.
Oh- and: 'We took rock climbing lessons before we came on the race'
I don't ordinarily like NEL legs, but I'm glad this time because the twins were my pick.
I really like the boarders. Smart, physical, and great attitudes. We'll see if they can maintain that attitude when things get tough. That's the real test. The doctors really impressed me that way last season.
