    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!

    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? :lol:

    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' :rofl::rofl:

    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.

    Justin/Jennifer were successful at the coral reef task too :cheer2:

    great episode! glad the guys all took a risk, too bad it didn't work out - but the bunching means it wouldn't have made any difference anyway.

    Huge :respec: to Jennifer and Amani for doing the rock climbing tasks

    LOVE Ma and Pa :) They were a trip in the taxi about passing the others, and the rock climbing banter was hilarious. I'm a little worried about Cathi's comment about having Bill do the physical tasks at this point, since they don't know how long they'll last. I wonder if they'll get pretty far and Cathi will end up having to do something like a strongman competition.

    The problem was that Laurence pointed to the wrong place on the map. I'm sure if they'd identified the destination properly on the map :)P) using the compass would have been fine.

    It sure was satisfying to see them get momentarily lost though :lol: almost satisfying enough to overcome Ernie/Cindy's utter confusion.

    I kept hearing most of the teams saying "Fcuk it" :lol:
