    Go Cowboys and Little Brothers!! :cheer2: I would be happy if either of them won. I'm a little worried about the Brothers tonight due to the meltdown we saw in the previews. :( I hope that was just a red herring to throw us off.

    ETA: at least 60 Minutes was interesting tonight. That yummy Anderson Cooper and the chef were :lol:. And Conan finally speaks! :rofl:

    I know Shanghai is a big city, but you'd think the taxi drivers would be familiar with this Garden Bridge.

    Note to future participants on The Amazing Race: take a crash course in some basic Chinese before departure. China always seems to mess people up. :lol:

    They know it by its Chinese name. So going to an internet cafe or something would've been a good idea. Or what Caite did. Who knew?

    Don't hate on a place, Dan (or Jordan, I can't tell them apart) just because no one speaks YOUR language. Gah. And then teaming up with the Duh-tectives? Who have re-earned that name?

    If Dan and Jordan would calm down, why don't they call the translation service?

    Okay Catie, you know its not 520, 522 or 524. The next round I would not even count and just straight away guess 523, then 521 next time if it wasn't right, just to rest my eyes!! :wideeyes:

    Lil Bro strategy pretty good so far. You just need to be 3rd to keep playing.

    Go Cowboys!!! They have the best attitude, never trash talk the other teams, and are never rude to people. (I'm looking at you models & :drama: brothers). :p

    Did you yell at people to get out of your way like Caite?

    Oh look, Brent needs to pee. :lol:

    Duhtectives have a very easy road block.

    At the chops challenge, do they EACH have to find the stamp with their name, or just one stamp with one of their names? I missed the clue. :eek:

    Seriously. When you have to go that badly, you can't concentrate on anything else.

    I may have bought some pink stuff in China. Sparkly, pink stuff.

    I hope Caite never breeds. She'll be screaming at infants to be potty trained and then yell at them to "HOLD IT"! :scream:

    Or, they're trying for the Depends endorsement? :p

    Didn't one female team a few years ago wind up in last due to a potty break?

    :rofl: at the bathroom drama! Wasn't it in China that a team stopped to let someone go to the bathroom and ended up eliminated?

    Yea, it was the sisters whose names I can't remember. They were at the Beijing Bird's Nest stadium and I think they got passed when she stopped at a port-o-let. :wideeyes:

    They each have to find one with a pig and their name on it. One of the cowboys found Brent's but put it back, of course.

    They may be annoying, but it looks like the idiots will make the final. They aren't as dumb as they act.

    Brent's got nerve commenting on ANYONE'S lack of language skills. :rolleyes:

    Too bad their trip wasn't back to China.

    I'm still sort of puzzled why no one chose to deliver the noodles. Yeah, that place is crowded, but it's not that bad. And it's not the needle in the haystack....
