    I'm watching.

    This TV show task reminds me of the "Wasabi taberu" one a few yrs ago. :lol:

    I'd be happy with anyone but BB winning.

    Rubber chicken thing looked awesome. :lol: Well, except for Vanessa and her ankle... Too bad crying chick didn't have to do it...

    I don't want to see any of these bitches win tonight.

    I would have paid to see Rachel do that RB.

    Good for army team Rachel! She did very well. I feel :fragile: for Vanessa. Her ankle looks :yikes:

    I hate Vanessa, but feel bad for her. Sprais can hurt, and hers looked bad based on the bruising. Clealry she is fine to walk on it, but she's going to do permanent damage if she keeps taking these falls

    Based on the Crap she's had to do on BB, she would have rocked it.

    Rotten luck for Vanessa. :( At this point the penalty will likely kill them but chances are it'll take too long and hurt her too much to keep trying.

    I called Rachel and Dave getting saved.

    ETA - I'm impressed she got the other two chickens. :eek:

    Oh man does Vanessa's ankle look *bad*. This is one of those rare times when I hate the equal task number rule. You'd think when someone's injured themselves like she has, an exception could be made for a Roadblock like this one.

    It was hysterical watching Border Guard Boy do that though. :D

    Just to see her faceplant and go flying into the balloons would be enough for me.

    Army Rachel needs to kick him in the balls. She's saved their a$$ multiple times. I'd take my half of the winnings and tell him Sayonora.

    I can't believe that the BPA's and BB can't find the pit stop. This would totally be me, getting eliminated 100 feet from the bath mat. :rofl: I would like to believe that Vanessa/Ralph can catch up but I'm sure AR is toying with us...

    Oh, I'm sure. They haven't really drummed up the suspenseful editing that much between the remaining two teams this season that much (at least in comparison to past seasons, it seems) so they must be catching up for a whole season's worth right now.

    Oh I'm sure they're toying w/us. Still...It is fun watching those two teams running around like...Well...Chickens w/their heads cut off.

    Someone had to say it!! ;)

    :rofl: that BPA are completely lost and just got more wrong directions. Although if it keeps up that means Brenchel has 50% chance of winning, which, vomit.

    I have no arm strength. Add this to the list of tasks I'd stay away from. :scream:

    I have no arm strength and incredible fear. But my husband (who isn't even a fan) told me he wouldnt take me on the race. Probably a good bet.

    And now they've discovered their mistake. I'm thinking they'll go back to the shaved ice place and correct the mistake.

    I have this feeling that's a fake out of some kind though.

    Their cab driver took them to the wrong place and they somehow stumbled on the final task before the pitstop, completely skipping a roadblock. Phil just turned them back to finish the task they missed.

    Hallelujah that it looks like Brenchel are out of things, but I'm not going to celebrate just yet.

    I really can't blame Dave & Rachel thinking that the paddleboards were the final task. Kinda sad in a way.

    Brenchel's mistake of not reading the clue was HUGE!

    God they're insufferable. :rolleyes:

    I love how methodical Dave & Rachel were after they were turned back, could you imagine BB Rachel's meltdown? Army Rachel has a smile on her face and was having fun with the sled roadblock!

    Me: Annnd Brenchel will be finishing 3rd.
    Mr. FridgeBreak (who hasn't watched this season other than the last 4 minutes): That's about 7 places too high.

    Major :respec: to Rachel/Dave for totally messing up but still winning.

    Poor Big Brother Rachel, sulking like a petulant child when they knew they'd be last :rolleyes:

    Glad they won when it wasn't their fault, but I definitely hope she kicks him to the curb.

    And no more hearing BB Rachel cry. :cheer2:

    I was :rofl: at her body language and expression when she and Brendan drove away from the sleds on the ATV.

    Congrats to Rachel and ArmyDave! She is very impressive!!

    Well, of course BB's sulking like a spoiled brat. It is what they are after all.

    Huge kudos for Rachel and Dave to screw up so incredibly massively insanely big and still pull out the win. I also cracked up at her threatening to throw the ball at his balls. :D

    And another season's over. Been fun as always watching it all w/all of you. :)

    That was really funny. :lol: "But I wanted to wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin."

    She won the race for that team, whether Dave knows it or not.

    Yay for Rachel/Dave. They deserved it and proved it even more by having to go back and redo their mistake. She did great with that sled thing. He's lucky to have had such a trooper for a partner. She more than held up her side of the team. STRONG female, typical guy.

    Glad they eliminated the final puzzle task where you had to put htings in order, remember where you did what and where you did it, etc. This was much more fun.

    Good season... now what to watch on sunday nights?????
