    I could do it, but I'd be wearing half of it when I was finished.

    The twins irritation factor is creeping up again, I was kind glad they missed their train. :2faced:

    :rolleyes: at one of the Chips trying to force the teams to work together. Good grief.

    I'd be going with the lion's head. I wouldn't trust my partner to cook eggs in a flaming coconut sitting on my head. :yikes:

    ETA. That elimination couldn't have happened to a nicer pair of twits.

    And I wouldn't be super crazy about eating those eggs, after seeing the first challenge...

    Okay so the twins endeared themselves to me again, when one of them rammed into the cameraman and the other one paused to check out their pic at the U-Turn. :rofl:

    Come on subs, uturn the obnoxious girls.

    The subs got double u-turned, and then tried to u-turn the monster truck people not knowing that they had already come and gone (and actually u-turned them).
    They then went back and completed the other detour and were ahead of the blondes on the way to the bathmat. The blondes caught up and passed the subs before their driver took a wrong fork in the road. The subs were able to make it to the bathmat first!! I was so happy for them! :cheer2:

    whee, I'm late to the TAR party. I missed the premiere, but watched last week and tonight. Last week I was hoping ANY of the subs, the twits or the Monster Truckers would have gone home before the pair that did :( This week I was kinda hoping the subs would be put out of their (our) misery, but it's hard not to like them, they are so earnest. Plus, the twits are so obnoxious I was thrilled to see them go. If Monster Truck goes next week I'll be happy.

    I'd have done the egg frying for sure, but the goat farmers were the only ones form the top 5, who had all been very close, but they finished much later. Did they have to go really far away to get the eggs? Cause the task itself should have been way quick.

    Ditto, I'm also thinking the parade route was maybe shorter than it seemed? You'd think cooking your omlette and eating it couldn't take that long.

    I think they had to travel two good lengthed distances: one to get the eggs, and then to the site where they did the task. I think it took some time for them to go get the eggs, and didn't they get slightly lost looking for it? Don't remember now.

    I was at the point tonight where I really didn't care who of that second group went tonight, since you knew it would be one of them. But when Princess started complaining about "going to another country and no one speaks English" .... :rolleyes: Ssoo glad they got a bad driver and this is once where I'm glad someone lost because of a driver.

    i've watched TAR since S1 and i know that cabbie bad luck is part of the game, but twice in a row now a team has been eliminated because of that and we're only 3 legs in. hopefully that's all for this season.

    and didn't care for the girls at all, but holy hell was that last driver of their's just AWFUL. not sure if i would've kept my cool under that situation.

    not really rooting for any team yet, though the twins are BY FAR the most entertaining at this point.

    The twins are more irritating than entertaining.
    I'm glad that the subs survived.

    I knew the bimbos were doomed when one bragged about how they were going to win. Screaming at the guy over wanting change was annoying too. And if I were the 'peddler', I'd have deliberately taken them the wrong way.

    This group is either so unlikeable or boring that I'm already changing channels. I may not make the finish line next week. :shuffle:

    I will admit giggling when the twits were running all over the field looking for the U-turn while the subs were having their eggs cooked.

    Wow, I was thinking that this was such a likeable group - even the twits, who were annoying, were nowhere as horrible as most of the abrasive teams of yore. I love the twins (in person I'd probably find them incredibly overbearing but they make great television), the Chips are hilarious, even most of the standard boy/girl daters are far more amenable than usual. The subs are are to watch, because they're so BAD at the race, but they are big fans of the show and realize how bad they are doing - I can't help but hope they can turn things around a little (or have a mercy elimination). Monster Truckers have potential to become villains, but for now they're just clueless.

    Once again I had to work and missed the broadcast, but caught up this morning. I've realized that there's one team that I am so deeply amused over (the twins), that I kind of feel that if they get eliminated, the rest of the season is going to go to plop for me. But they're still in it and I'm still quite interested.

    Also liking Trey & Lexi and the Chippers. Who is the couple who came in 1st again? I can't even remember their names and they really only seem to pop up on my screen when they get to the pit stop mat. James & Abba are pretty cool, but I don't feel like we've seen much of them either. Maybe now that there's less teams to keep track of, it'll get a little better.

    Good riddance to the twits who were eliminated. I couldn't believe her "it's so frustrating that no one in this country speaks English" comment... shades of Jen (of Nate & Jen aka the McBickersons) screaming out in the streets of Japan, "why does no one here speak English?!?!?!"

    The twins comment about the clusterfeck of teams at the very beginning was hilarious.. "This is a perfect example, when you're in a large group you just do dumb shit because you feel safe." :D

    Dhaka next week is going to be NUTS.

    I'm glad the blonde girls went home. Especially after one of them screeched about how dare people from this country not speak English :drama:

    That comment...seemed highly edited to me. Some weird splicing going on there.

    The Twins I can see as irritating, but they only yell at each other (seems to be par for the course in their relationship and it never seems nasty IMO) and are incredibly nice to the locals and the other team so they're in my good column for the moment.

    After they did the U turn, one of the subs commented that doing the eggs went much faster than doing the lion dance.

    I'm not rooting much for anyone yet, although I enjoy the twins.
    The Cardinals won. :watch:

    That was such a satisfying elimination. :EVILLE:

    Besides the fact that anyone saying "you just cost me a million dollars" when they are not on the final leg of the race is a twat. :p

    ^ Oh yes I hate that too!! The one and only time that someone is going to "cost them a million dollars" is if they are in the Final 3, have a huge 2-3 hour lead over the other teams, and then lose it due to a lost cab driver. Yea, I'd be a little bitter then, and might whine, but unless you are in that situation, no driver lost that million dollars for you on Leg #3.

    Uh, Kozma? My new boyfriend. :grope:

    Is it just me, or does this season seem really LOUD. Between the twins and the twits, I found myself lowering the tv volume which is something that never happens at my advanced age.

    I was hoping the subs would get eliminated just so the droopy tall guy could go take a nap. I mean, even his cheering sounded sad and depressed.

    ETA: I fried an egg after watching that episode. Yum.

    Only fair to make up for last week! (((Amy)))

    It's amazing that we're in season 20(?) and contestants still whine about the locals not knowing English. But like I said, karma.

    While I liked the subs on a personal level, they were lousy racers. I just wished the truckers had gone before them.

    I agree. I'm a little worried that the footage of them being superfans (while being sucky players) will somehow justify more stunt casting.

    The twins must be beyond annoying to have on the race but I absolutely adore them :lol:

    That Fast Forward task!!! :scream:

    Yeah, I don't care if a million dollars is on the line, I'd have to back out on that one. I had a hard enough time dealing with mice in my house, let alone rats. :scream:

    I agree with the first part of this sentence. :p

    I can't wait until they are gone! I'd even take the obnoxious truckers over them at this point, because at least the truckers don't screech all the time. Now, if the twins would just stfu for an episode or five, I might become their biggest fans.
