    I don't really dislike any of the teams left, but I love the Chips best of all and then the Twinnies. Both teams make me laugh every week. My ideal final 3 would be the Chips, Twins and Goats. The Goats do very well at the mental tasks and are miserable at the physical ones. The twinnies are just hysterical. The Chips are , funny, and seem to be nice guys. This probably means Trey/Lexie and Abby/Ryan will be the final two.

    They were totally awesome - I loved how they had fun with their cab drivers and were just so cool and relaxed during any hiccup, when you know that any other team would be freaked out. And totally PML at their reaction at the Roadblock that there were no other teams there because they were first. Hope they have enough killer instinct, though - right after there's a voiceover about how much they want to win this leg, they're trying to get a cab for Trey and Lexi. At least they didn't wait around too much when it was clear Trey & Lexi were gone.

    I hadn't really noticed this before, but it was really highlighted in this episode. They figured out the trick on the locks, kicked butt on the time zone task and I was quite impressed with how well they did at recognizing the famous Russians too. It's amazing how much that one flight was a bad decision...if they had taken the flight that landed at 5 am, they would have still arrived in plenty of time for the 9:30 am bunching on the last leg, then they could have done the library task instead of the pool and probably done very well there. Hate to say "what if" but if they'd picked the other flight, they could have had a very good shot at winning the last two legs.

    Remember, Goat Farmer #2 was/is an emergency medicine MD; and accustomed to analytic challenges.
    I'm not sure of his partner's academic background; but, I'm sure he is no less brilliant.

    This season's racers are a very unusual bunch; I've never seen so much helping and teaming up.

    It's nicer to see than endless drama, but it's just so weird.

    Yes, Josh and Brent are both extremely bright. Josh is a fine writer, too. His memoir of his days as a drag queen is absolutely hilarious!

    Has anyone ever watched the Goats' reality show? The Fabulous Beekman Boys

    Josh wrote another book, too: The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir

    Unfinished Business takes the baklava on this one. The very first episode every team was helped/gave help with sharing answers except the cowboys. And then in Liechtenstein, 4-5 of the teams completed the roadblock together by simply giving the answer to everyone else, leaving the cowboys in the dust once again. It was like that almost the entire season, blah.

    As for getting out of Russia, we were able to get a passport in a few days but It took 5 or 6 more days to get a visa. A miracle, considering that it should have taken us a month through regular channels.

    I'm glad that they had such positive things to say about the AR experience.

    Interesting that they always say how it was bad luck and not their own stupidity! I wanted them to be asked about the theft.

    Oh how I wish there'd be a team that actually booked tickets to France instead.

    The Chips totally had the chance to lose Trey/Lexie and send them to Paris. Too nice.

    Oh my god, every single team with a different travel itinerary! They're going to have teams in 5 different countries at any given time! Love it, we haven't seen this kind of airport scattering in several seasons!

    Looks like Abbie & Ryan were burned from booking an itinerary with two different airlines... and didn't check in for their connecting flight beforehand. Words of advice for any future racers -- stick to the same airline if it's possible and time effective!
