So are we on time tonight?
eta: We're on time in NC!
The teams being dressed alike drives me crazy!
Boarders are in trouble.
ETA, now they're in 1st place. They are something else.
And we have the return of "rapido"....
It looks awfully dark in Panama.
That would be tough. I'm not afraid of heights, but that would be scary!
Interesting that they put the names of the team members that have to do the Road Block. I haven't seen that before. I would be if I had to do that tightrope walk. (((Sandy)))
I need to Boarders to not be so obnoxious. They have to make it to the finals.
Well, it is technically the right word to say. It means fast or quick. It is when they start the speedy gonzalez inpersonations that they sound ridiculous.
Barring some really bad luck, I think they will. They are fearless. I want Amani and Marcus to pass Jeremy and Sandy.
Well yeah I know it's correct and what it means. I was remembering how some teams have said "rapido, rapido" in every country.
I thought Marcus made a bad choice, but it seems he made the right one. Good for them. Run Marcus and Amani run!
Dear Lord, the Boarders are going to blow this....
Oh man! The snowboarders are screwed by not being with the pack. At least they have a boat load of prizes...
Big time. They screwed up badly. Best racers and they are going to crash and burn.
Talk about a nailbiter.
I just wonder if someone's going to be able to figure out the dress without alerting the other teams. The boarders *look* screwed but if they go straight back maybe they had enough time?
the curse of Prancer strikes again.
I hate that damn deer.
ARGGGGHHHHHH Jeremy and Sandy figured it out
Oh good! Everyone else thinks balboa too! Come on boarders!
Tough clue...I like it. I bet they didn't think it would be this hard...once they highlighted it, it was so obvious.
Oh wait, Cindy's cab driver just said the right place. How did they get that? They thought balboa...
Noooooooooooo the cab drivers are taking them to the right place. ((((((Borders)))))
Damn Invisibles made the finals. Unbelievable.
I was afraid of this, they highlighted their obnoxiousness at the tight rope. At least they won the Mustangs.
Oh crap, I hope this is a NEL!
ETA - and it wasn't. Bye boarders. You were until you went to the Panama Canal.
How in the world did that happen? Two of them told the cab drivers the wrong place!
These three teams really seem to like each other, so I'm happy for them.
The cab drivers all radioed each other. I'm thrilled for NFL, but gutted for the Borders. That was the really bad luck I worried about.
But how did the cabs know which of the two places was right? In most circumstances I'd be pissed if my cab took me somewhere I didn't ask.
They knew they were on the show and the driver who had the Invisibles radioed the others. They all knew where to go. In a way, it's sort of unfair, but that's the way TAR works sometimes.
The Borders really were the best, but the Prancer curse brought them down. She better not pick NFL to win next week.
I hate how they were eliminated
I hate the the pack mentality won again. I know that they didn't necessarily all choose to bunch up together, but....
I suppose it worked out, but what if the invisibles were the ones who were wrong. How did the cab drivers decide between old city and the balboa statue? It doesn't make sense for the cab drivers to redirect themselves.
I just realized almost everybody picked the Borders this week but ME I just moved up a spot. Thanks Tommy and Andy. Glad you won the cars and all the trips.
Jeremy showed his driver a picture of the ruins and that's how he knew the right place.
They didn't choose for it to happen this way so it's less obnoxious than that Litchenstein bike race leg where everyone but one team was told the result. But that has to be in the top worse cases of bad luck ever on TAR. Wow.
rfisher - some of us only had the Boarders left.
Especially since one of the teams was on the way to the Balboa statue, the place the boarders had just left realizing their mistake. It would have put them ahead of that team.
Two of them were. Only the Invisibles were going to the right place. If the drivers hadn't intervened, the Borders would have been 2nd.
Super excited the boarders were eliminated
Well, in this case, they actively tried not to bunch up together - the teams kept telling their cab drivers to stop sharing information but the drivers weren't listening. Just a freak case of bad luck for the boarders.
I've never seen the teams so happy for the other teams who made the final, but I guess that at least part of it was that they were all probably pretty happy not to face the boarders in the final. But it did seem like the Ernie & Cindy and Jeremy & Sandy really liked Amani & Marcus.
Me too. And I'm willing to say so in larger print too.
Me three. Can't stand the boarders.
I didn't mind the boarders (not just because I picked them in the prediction contest). I have to admit they could be obnoxious at times, but they were such good racers. I hate when the best racers don't make it to the final, but that's the way the race goes sometimes.
The boarders were so strong, I can't believe they lost. Amani and Marcus FTW!
Me too. They were starting to get too cocky for me. They got enough prizes anyways.
Very interesting tonight. Bummed for the boarders, but liked how the other 3 teams knew they were the team to beat and now feel they are on a level field.
Go Amani n Marcus, they have the nicest relationship. Loved how Amani focused on her kids in the height challenge.
