    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....

    I'm directionally challenged .. and a klutz ... so I would have to do the chops challenge for those reasons. :lol: I would also consider it kinda like a rest period in that you are just standing there picking up those stamps, not exerting yourself walking/carrying the stuff.

    The duhtectives have made several dumb mistakes. They deserve to be last. They've had multiple chances to move ahead this leg.

    Note to little brothers - if you want your cabbie to help you, don't act like total jerks in the back seat. He can see your facial expressions.

    They totally lucked out on that....

    Little Brothers made it by the hair of their chinny chin chins.

    Go Cowboys next week. Don't let Brent and Caite win.

    Still rooting for anyone except Brent and Caite. She's a royal pain. Hint to Caite: Intelligent people don't have to keep telling the rest of the world how smart they are. It's usually pretty obvious.

    I'm not too mad at Dan about his taxi/language barrier frustration. Honest emotion, I guess. He and Jordan are usually so nice and supportive of each other. Glad they made it to the end.

    The Duhtectives deserved elimination for their participation in the Carol/Brandy yield. Maybe they'd still be in it if they had talked Brent and Caite into yielding another team.

    Loving the Cowboys. This season has been well worth watching for them alone. Their reaction to Brent having to go to the bathroom and having to beg witch Caite for permission was priceless. :D

    I'm pretty sure that the racers are not allowed to be separated by something like more than 15-20 feet at any time unless it's during a roadblock or a specific challenge that allows them to. Simply for filming purposes. I'm pretty sure teams are informed ahead of time that if one racer needs a bathroom break during a challenge, the challenge progress needs to be put on hold. Additionally the filming and sound crews have communication with the production team, and I don't think they'd let the racers wander off on their own without a film/sound person because then they wouldn't have any means of direct access to production help if needed (I know it's mostly for extreme cases, but they are in foreign territory).

    Brent pretty much said in the episode that Caite could not stay and keep looking while he went to the loo.

    I didn't realize that Caite was that pageant dimwit until this ep (I missed the first several weeks of this season). Now I understand her comments last week about all her "haters". I just thought she knew that people would hate her based on how she behaved on this show :shuffle: Anyway, it's amusing that she thinks she will change peoples' minds about her level of intelligence - but I guess she set the bar so low with that pageant answer that there's nowhere to go but up :lol:

    Couldn't stand JorDan this week. It's very unfortunate that they're still in the race. At least the detectives had a good attitude throughout. Go Jet & Cord for the $1 million!! :cheer:

    I'm totally rooting for the cowboys. The models? Blech. Little brothers? Blech. I mean, they're so inept they can't figure out how to find the bridge, they look for 2 hours and then their strategy is to hope the detectives can find it for them. They don't deserve to win, IMO. The detectives didn't bother me too much this episode, and it doesn't really bother me that they got the models to u-turn the "mean lesbians," who were themselves kind of obnoxious at times.

    So the cowboys are the only ones left I can root for. I'm hoping that doesn't mean they don't win!
