    Too bad it couldn't have been a double elimination!

    Wow. Caite's an idiot, too. "Joan of Arc's a guy." "Oh, I was thinking of someone else." Yeah. Riiiiiight.

    I think I'd do the search since both people can do it. There's no way I'd stack the glasses without breaking something.

    Wow. I just looked it up. Pierry is on the opposite side of Epernay from Riems. Teams heading there are probably losing a minimum of one hour, if not more.

    I missed it. I was letting the dog out and came back in time to see them looking at the car.

    They didn't show it. There was just a "thump," and then they showed the damaged car. Did he hit the curb? Weird.

    Did he just say, "If I can find crack in someone's ass, I can find grapes on a vine?" Or similar? :rofl:

    Wow. The Cowboys are out blonding Jeff and Jordan and Brent and Caite. And the Duhtectives are number one again. They are on a roll.

    If Brent and Caite don't murder each other, it'll be a miracle.

    :lol: I found myself rooting for Jordan and Jeff for the first time this season, in hopes of not having to see or hear any more from Brent and Caite. Oh, well ... it's clear from the previews that we can look forward to more bickering next week. :yikes:

    I heard her mumble something that sounded like "all the animals" so maybe she was thinking of Noah! :rofl:


    I was so rooting for the li'l bros when they were pouring their champagne. I would have felt so bad for them after all of that work. Now for Brent and Caitie I felt nothing. I was so hoping tonight was it for them. The big bros team had good attitudes through this whole leg. I was pulling for them.

    Brandy and Carol continue to annoy me. They just seem to be complaining even when they're not complaining.

    I was :eek: at the Duh-tectives' "finding crack in someone's butt" comment. :scream:

    I was sad not to see more of the cowboys. I love that they hustle through tasks like the find the grapes in the vineyard!:respec: They are not at their best when they have to drive themselves.

    So I always set my dvr to extend TAR by 30 min and even then I was about 20 min short tonight. Has to be a new record. Since I don't have the patience to wait for it on hulu, who was eliminated tonight? It HAS to be big bro right?

    When Brent and Catie were searching the vineyard the first time, did they show Catie walking past a bunch of grapes TWICE??!! That was the impression I got from the shot. Maybe if she woulda quit whining and paid more attention to lookin' they woulda found the grapes the first time.

    So glad the cowboys are still in it!! I was so worried with going to the wrong city TWICE! Now that they are safe, I can say that was funny. :lol:

    I have to admit, I did love the Cowboys comments about how people pay thousands of dollars for the trip they took through Wine Country of France and they got to do it for free *and* in a Mercedes to boot. Yes, it was sarcasm, but at least it was funny sarcasm.

    Personally, I thought the going outside in boxer shorts image was more mentally scarring. :scream:

    :rolleyes: at the Little Brothers comment about people not speaking English so well.

    This was one situation where the needle-in-the-haystack was much easier. I definitely would've done the grapes task. When I was 12, I had a department store disaster that started with a pyramid of wine glasses and ended with me booking it up an escalator. :shuffle:

    I didn't care much for the little bros' comment about English, but they really are becoming my second fave team. First fave, of course, the cowboys. Oh my gravy, I thought they were done for. So glad they're not.

    I was a little sad to see Big Bro go. They were funny and good for the weekly "duh" comment.

    I will be happy to see the duhtectives get knocked off their perch. I'm tired of their "we do this every day" and I don't really find them funny. Just "eh".

    They may not be funny, but they're playing this game very well.

    There's always an exception to a rule and this was definitely it for "avoid needle in a haystack tasks at all costs". I was also relieved it didn't cost the brothers.

    Half the teams sent to the wrong town, car trouble, Big Brother IIRC following only to find themselves prematurely at the Pit Stop again(!) and of course the hilarious Joan of Arc + Cathy Drone comments...this episode had it all lol. :lol: Awesome stuff.

    Were the cowboys really being sarcastic? What they said was true after all and I liked that they saw it that way!

    :lol: Ahhh, I actually thought of you when LB2 said that ... wondered if you'd call that out. But, c'mon - eye rolls worthy? As you said, it was a comment. A passing comment among many ... nothing near a complaint. I like to think that they laughed about saying that, with a faux "how dare they speak so much French here!" or something. But that's just me.

    Meh episode for me. I've become tired of the Dutectives' cockiness, after winning two consecutive legs ... should be even more insufferable next week after their third in a row. Cowboys might be the best ever team within the challenges, but their confidence in their decisions -- a great strength -- has almost as much of a chance of getting them eliminated if they don't back up their hunches with input from the locals. Despite their saying the words, the Girls seemed far from convinced that they could become the first all-gal team to win TAR. Steve & Allie have become my Cowboys back-up for :cheer2: fav team. Yes, duct tape is legend.

    :blah: How much longer can Caite and Brent (who's looking inexplicably VERY rough ... six weeks in a dungeon rough) keep in the race? They're crappy racers, and too dim to give us :watch: bickering like past -- smarter and more skilled versions did.

    Glad Jorff are gone, they were just painful. Did appreciate Jeff's "stay in school" comment but jesus. :scream:

    At least Caite had the sense to apologize about demanding the other task when they got the grapes seemingly immediately when they went back. But eys I was hoping for a double elimination.

    Phil's face when the father/daughter team asked if they had insurance on the cars. :lol: Wonder if they'll get some sort of penalty for that?

    Having a mime to greet them was eville

    It's my pet peeve when native English speakers do this to people in a non-English speaking country who are trying to help them. The onus on communication is a two-way street.
