I've rarely been so happy for an NEL.
I missed the beginning of the episode.
What was the distressing "news from home"?
I was quite impressed with she-Monster during the scale task and was waiting for he-Monster to have a stroke during the bamboo task. Twinnies are so funny, I'm willing to ignore the screeching. They're the TAR Mary Murphy for me... always mute when on screen.

Not sure how I feel about the Twinnies. On one level the constant screeching is annoying but on another level, I love how competitive they are for a f/f team.
My favs are James & Jaymes. Even when messing things up like counting bamboo, they keep their positive attitudes going and I like that in a team.
Are James and Abba not brothers? I was surprised that only one of them was talking about the bad news. I missed the first episode this season, so didn't get the full story on the teams. They certainly look like brothers.
ok, through the magic of the internet I looked it up Aside from their style (and personality) similarities, I guess I thought the most likely connection between a rock star and a lawyer would be if they were related but it makes sense that Abba is an entertainment lawyer.
The Abby and Ryan story is that she wants to get married and he doesn't, so they are doing the race to test their relationship .

I was concerned towards the end that one of my favorite teams was going to be eliminated & then it hit me that it was time for a NEL round & so it was. I'd like to see the Monster Truckers leave next as I don't find them very interesting.
My 13 year old jr high student sense of humor was also over: "Long, strong and hard! Long, strong and hard!"
I am in love with him! He was so sexy tying up those bundles of bamboo, lol. They are seriously hot and seem like nice country boys. Definitely my favorites this season!My second favorite team is the Chippendales. Oh my hell, Jaymes (the blonder one has to be Jaymes not James, right?) is hilarious and all kinds of awesome.
Still loving TWINNIES! Although if everybody is like them, I'm never going to Shriek Lanka.
I was at the end that the Chippendales might eliminated, but thankfully they made it.
To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

please tell me there are pictures of this?!
And did anyone see the commercial for the preview this Sunday that I just did?! Even though it was in a commercial on CBS, I'll spoiler it ....
SpoilerSomeone steals Long Hair's money?! Ain't there a rule about not being allowed to steal the other teams money/passports/clues, etc.??

We're late here in NC.
Watching 60 Minutes, an interview with Aaron Rodgers of the Packers. Something about him reminds me of Steve Carrell.
We're on time in Canada.
Won't say anything other than Karma is going to hurt two teams big time eventually for what happens at the beginning of the episode...
It's started here and I know that it's the Rockers' fault that they dropped their $$ but at the Twins and random dating couple.
Glad to hear it AE!!
Just shocked that the screechies took the money. Would hope that future seasons will address taking money that you know is another team's cash. Random strangers in Bangladesh rock.
Monster and truck can leave my screen too.
Erin - you said it better than I thought it. I'm pretty sure they got rid of the 'no cash for last place NEL' teams a few seasons ago after it was pointed out that racers were begging in the streets of poor countries for cash so they could keep trying for a million dollars.
I just want karma to slap 2 teams right now.
