    NFLers might make it. Who else didn't pay?

    Uh. Oh. Ma/Pa are going to be out for failure to pay the driver. Oops they got past the NFLers.

    NEL !!!! NFL still in the game.

    I was really sad when it looked like Ma and Pa might be eliminated because of not paying; didn't want NFL eliminated either. So :cheer: for NEL!

    Also :cheer2: for me watching on my new HDTV- wow, how'd I ever watch this show without one?! :)

    I'm going to guess there is still one more NEL to go. The first one was essentially negated as far as Race timeline when they eliminated two teams the next episode. Usually there are 3 per season, but I am going to assume that this season will have 4.

    Eh, I'm in the minority on Ma & Pa, they're really condescending to the drivers.

    I can't imagine how bad that tobacco factory must have smelled. :yikes: I think I saw a few people with filter masks on?

    Lawrence seems like a 'woman wears apron and cooks and sews and man does macho things' type of jerk. Or is it me?

    :huh: They were so sweet. They couldn't have been nicer.

    I started yelling at Bill and Cathi from my couch when they didn't pay their driver. I was so angry they were going to lose over something silly, but it turned out to be NEL. I'm happy because I like Amani and Marcus, too.

    As soon as that one showed I was going "oh crap" because they are my picks. So glad it is a NEL.

    Past behavior for Ma & Pa. "Chop chop" is still bugging me. And tonight her comment of 'don't pay them if they don't ask' was just weird.

    aaargh - I didn't want Amani and Marcus to be eliminated, but Ma & Pa were my picks this week and I needed them to stay. I picked them in part because they finished so well last week - I am nervous about them starting the next leg in the 2nd to last spot.

    man, team NFL had a crappy leg :scream:

    Laurence is such a freakin tool :blah:

    I was glad that this was a NEL because I wanted the team to stay. But is it my imagination, or are there more NEL's now than there used to be? Maybe I'm just forgetting ...

    Did the snowboarders really say there's no snow in Africa? They've clearly listened to "Do They Know It's Christmas?" one time too many. :p

    I'm with you. There seem to be an awful lot of NEL's. Unless, like you, I'm just forgetting? And then there is always one when there are 4 couples left too, isn't there? So we get an extra episode out of the Final 4? So there's still another one coming?

    Did anyone watch the Pro Bull Riding Finals Sunday afternoon on NBC by chance? If so, you (like me) got to watch Cord McCoy compete. He was in the top 10 when they went off the air but had a re-ride coming up so I'm not sure where he ended up. He's a huge fan favorite judging by the ovation he got when his name was announced. He was interviewed after completing an 8 second ride (4th of 5) & it looked like he had a black eye?

    Well, there has to be at least 1 extra NEL as a result of the double elim in one leg. But yes, it feels like there are a lot even considering that.

    Question I have been meaning to ask .... the Snowboarder Dudes, the clean shaven one (can never remember names :shuffle:). He totally reminds me of someone else, someone on television, and its driving me crazy I can't place who I think he reminds me of. Whenever he is talking my brain is going "hey that's So-and-So from that one TV show" and I can never quite place it. Anyone else think he reminds them of ...... some guy on a TV show? :D

    He reminds me of Ben Folds from The Sing-Off.
