    I hate so much that Brendan and Rachel are on this show. I hate her even more since she has already said "we aren't on this race to make friends"

    UGH.


    Lots of young pretty people this time around. Maybe CBS thinks the old ugg-os don't bring the audience? I kind of prefer those. (And lots of people who have jobs that are very physically demanding...military, athletes, even clowns, honestly).

    On initial impress, I'm rooting for "wrong side of the tracks" and rooting against "he got married, then divorced, I got married, then divorced, so now we are finally dating" oh, and B/R.

    It started on time on CTV in eastern Canada so we're already more than 1/2 way through the hour.

    I have no idea who they are since I don't watch Big Brother, but I don't like them on principle. ;)

    Wheee, my show is back! :cheer:

    I was ok with Ethan and Jenna(?) last season, but these guys seem more obnoxious. Meh.

    Not feeling this cast too much in general so far, but it's obviously early.

    I've never had problems with the Survivors (I LIKED Rob and Amber as racers) but I watched Big Brother their first season, and tried to watch it during All Stars, but they ruined it and I stopped watching.

    Roadblock was tricky- DH and I totally would have picked wrong, and if they didn't give me a clue like Luke got (must be able to hear verbal instructions) we would have had to quit the race due to medical issues. Of course, I'm sure those issues would prevent me from getting on the race anyway- but for the most part it always seemed like we could avoid me having to bungee jump or sky dive or what not.

    Early favs are Border Patrolers and Armyguy and wife. ((((Clowns))))

    Sky diving is over rated. It's noisy and cold.

    Jersyboys can't drive STICK!!!! Are you kidding me? Mark them down as leaving early.

    I can't believe people still participate without knowing how to drive stick.

    Um, did someone say he hates Mexicans? Please tell me I misheard.

    I think Brendan said he's not (or is?) Mexican but he hates them, with THEM refering to the Border Patrol guys, not to Mexicans.

    The episode title is
    The Tears of a Clown
    I imagine that is too obvious a giveaway if that team truly is eliminated.

    :rofl: at Rachel being referred to as Rainbow Brite.

    Eh, not excited by this group of racers. Too much praying and the BB team is already annoying.

    Those 2 NJ muscle goons can get off my screen now. Hope they're first out.

    They went from skydiving to empanada making? Totally random and awesome. :lol:

    Looks like Golf Girls made another critical mistake leaving the bags, if the gong sound was any indication. :p

    I could go for an empanada about now!

    Really? I must have missed that part, or maybe it doesn't bother me so I don't notice it.

    I don't like the fact that so much depends on the order in which they found the balloon clues which was totally random.

    Or how fast you hustled to pull as many down as possible. I didn't see- how many flights were there to South America? It definitely bunched them some, so it was only random if you were top or bottom tier.


    Oh my goodness- Phil is actually referring to that guy as Joey Fitness.
    Also, girls, that "one mistake" didn't cost you a million dollars. You made so many mistakes you would have never gotten near the end.

    just starting in AZ. Jersey boys seem like total tools and never saw Big Brother, but that team seems really annoying. Really? Car sick? And clowns are crying already? Suck.it.up.

    One of the more deserved eliminations- I liked them, but they made too many mistakes.

    Phil's perplexed expression was :rofl: It ranks right up there with the twins who swam across a pool when every other team walked around it to get to Phil!

    I can't believe no one picked up on the best line from the ep: "My uterus is in my throat!" :drama:

    Too soon to say about most of the teams. I hate that there is yet another CBS famewhore crossover team, but Rachel/Brendon is less heinous than Jeff/Jordan, Ethan/Jenna or Rombuh. Or at least I see them as being there just for entertainment purposes.

    Ugh, those sisters :wall: I would rather have had them on the season than the Jersey boys, but they earned their elimination. I half expected Phil to start waving and saying "We're over here!!!"

    I'm with whoever said waaaaaaaay too much praying going on already.

    Don't know all their names yet but I luv luv LUV the Redneck Boys!! They were friggin' hilarious! I hope they stick around to the end!

    And I hate hate HATE that Brendon, and I don't even watch Big Brother so have no clue about those two other than what I read on the cast announced TAR thread on this board. He's a total jerk. I'll be rooting for them to get booted next please. At least they didn't get the Fast Forward card.

    I did! I had tears with that one. :rofl: That should have been the name of the episode! :lol:

    I didn't notice that much praying, but maybe I'm immune to it on this show now. :lol: Although I do know that if I was the one jumpin' outta that plane I would have been screaming "please God don't let me dddddiiiiiiieeeeeeee!" all the way down!

    Great first episode! :cheer: I'm liking the hottie twins from Arizona. I hope the fact that they didn't get a lot of air time this episode bodes well for how long they stay in the game.
