    Looks like we're 20 minutes behind on the east coast. 60 minutes is just starting.

    When I checked at 6pm, there were three minutes left in the game. So 20 minutes is probably about right. :p

    9:28 pm is the start time for the first team to leave. The rest leave 9:36 - 11:31 pm.
    The older couple who came in last leave at 3:57am.

    I was curious how far behind they were. Bunching at the airport so all leave at same time.

    Even though it's his last segment, I still wish they'd cut Andy Rooney so we get TAR earlier.

    ETA: Phil is tweeting live again, starting at 8:22 to match the east coast broadcast.

    We're on. Which two will go? I'm betting the Grands and Ron/Bill (at least I hope it's them since I picked the Twins to survive. :D )

    Don't dude me, dude. That shouild have been the episode title.

    Yes. The siblings need to go quickly. Which means they'll be top three. :p

    I'm already tired of them. They can go instead of Ma and Pa.

    That task is awesome! The cave trip; not the speedbump.

    I'm going to pee my pants!

    I would love to go down in that cave.

    I would not love climbing out :yikes:.

    Go Pa! Climb that bamboo!

    Should we make bets now on who will NOT read the instructions?

    I like that they're donating the money - I'm always uncomfortable when they have contestants trying to get money from local people.

    They have to give them their money as well. This will be interesting to see who had reading comprehension issues. That could totally change the ending.

    So the music is indicating that no one is following the directions?

    Boarders first to pay attention. Cindy is kind of annoying.

    Who would have thought the snowboarders would have been the first ones to catch the clue?

    The Boarders are the new Cowboys! Stoking!

    It will be a real race to see who the last two teams are. Last team ends up 3rd.

    Twins survive! Ma and Pa survive!

    No lie but when they were in the taxi on the way there I thought they were chill enough to stop and read the sign. But I also thought the same for the old couple so my powers are only 50/50 :D

    Ok I have new appreciation for Cindy not fussing at her partner for failing to read the sign.

    Boy, this clue on the table thing is REALLY messing up the finish.

    Oh, Phil, you are so mean to those poor showgirls :lol:.

    ETA: See, Ethan, you should have been saying "thank you" last week. Karma is a bitch.

    Ethan and Jenna out along with Ron and Bill. All you who picked R/B should have gone with the twins. :D

    Did anyone get the sense that the teams knew what Phil was going to say when they hit the bath mat? I'm thinking of the teams that had to go back to the orphanage and the showgirls.

    I'm surprised that Ethan/Jenna didn't make it farther. :( for Bill/partner. They seemed like nice people.

    Was the message about giving all their money on their original clue or only on the sign at the orphanage?

    Ha! Phil just tweeted that he's been happy to tell some teams they've been eliminated! :p But it was not the case tonight.

    Who would have bet that Ethan and Jenna were out before Ma and Pa? Yay for Pa for rocking the cave challenge and for both of them keeping their cool when they had go go back to the orphanage.

    I thought it was cool how all the teams broke out in applause for Ma and Pa when they showed up at the airport at the beginning. They seem like an adorable couple. :)

    Bye Ethan. I'll miss you. Good luck surviving Jenna. :p

    Ma&Pa are adorable. Cindy annoys. Muted the siblings. Love the snowboarders.

    Mine too darn it!!

    Remember old Zen saying : She who gloats ends up w/Karma visit.

    :D :p :D

    I was starting to feel bad for Phil having to ask over and over if the Team in front of him had left *all* of their money or not. He really was starting look rather, "Are you *kidding* me?" at one point there. :D

    Of all the teams to see it first though, who would have thought the Snowboarders!?! Joining the growning chorus of those who still don't quite believe it. :D

    As well as those who want the Brother and Sister Bickersons GONE!! More her, but I would love them off my TV soon. Next week hopefully.

    What an eppy. TAR really stepped it up so far this Season.

    YES!!!! Ethan and Jenna are gone!! :cheer2: :cheer2: I wasn't keeping track of where the teams were so wasn't sure who the last two were. SO HAPPY when they announced 9th and then realized Ethan and Jenna were gone!! :cheer2:

    Sorry that $2,000,000 just wasn't enough to satisfy you two and for you to have an easy life that you think you should get to win more. [/sarcasam off]. I hate it when people who have already won mega $$ on other game shows get free shots at another load of cash on TAR!! Keep them off Amazing Race please!
