The phone rang right before TAR started...should have known better but I answered. Was a friend telling me he has to put his cat down this week so I couldn't just hustle him off the phone fortunately all I missed was the team intro and Phil giving the official start.
Seems like the teams split up into groups more than usual this time - there were the top 6 teams at the end and then way back a few more. Good thing the Bickersons wandered all over the castle or else there would ahve been quite a boring stretch.
I'm bummed about the friends being booted right away. Damn, they must have been seriously lost on the road. Did they even do the watermelon challenge? I wonder how long after Team Mensa they came in.
Lots of competitors whose personalities are kinda quirky and endearing right now but who could become annoying (the daughter, Blonde QVC, Beach V-Ball). Especially the daughter - for now, she's totally adorable though.
I can't even imagine how awful it must have been to get smacked in the face with that watermelon. I'm really paranoid about my teeth - I can't believe she didn't get one knocked out!! I bet someone from the challenge set-up team got dinged for that one. How amazing she was able to come back and get the task done so quickly - once she got back in it. I'm sure she took some time, and I hope they had someone from medical to make sure she didn't have whiplash or anything.
Team Mensa They are freakin hilarious. They are so mellow it's impossible to imagine they're not completely stoned.
Not interested in any redemption for Chad. Plus, with so few alpha males there;s no way he's going to dial down the competitiveness.
Whee TAR is back!
