    Chuck and Wynonna Effed up. YouTubes have 30 minutes to find a taxi. Glad Wynonna is going home, but I'll miss Chuck.

    to be honest, I think Whine-onna was just as grateful as we are that her cheese rolling stunt incurred the penalty.

    going down the mountain seemed a lot easier this time around, but going up was brutal. Especially after the chaotic day of travel...just how many trains did they take in one day?!?

    poor Meghan...she's been pretty good about things as far as I can recall for the race, but walking the whole way when everyone else took a cab. I'm glad they didn't get eliminated. And looking at next week. can you imagine Joey doing that skydiving task?

    Whineona and cheese Chuck probably wanted to roll her down the mountain along with the cheese with the hope that she'd turn into a giant snowball. I'm glad to see the last of her, especially since next week includes a sky diving/bungee task. I shudder to think about how she would have whined if she had had to do that.

    Just as I suspected, the snow actually helped the racers. I'm sure it was hard, but it actually looked kinda fun. Glad to see Chuck and Whine-ona gone. Oh and how cute were the dogs? Lovely.

    Next week: Bungee woooooooo Can I please be in the race? I will gladly do all the scary height and water tasks. All I need is a partner with faulty taste buds who is willing to do the gross food tasks. That's all I ask for.

    I would need a partner to do the gross food tasks and anything involving heights.

    I'm one of those losers who would need the other person to do all the driving and the gross food challenges

    I'd do all the water and height challenges though! I might well kvetch during some but I'd do 'em!

    Have they been doing more animal-related tasks than in past seasons? In New Zealand, they had the obstacle course with the dog; In Indonesia, they had the monkeys with the coconuts; In Vietnam, one of the tasks involved carrying live chickens; Botswana, everyone did the scorpion task and some did tasks involving trapping the guineafowl and using a team of donkeys; and now, in Switzerland, they had the rescue dog task. The only place that didn't really have an animal task was French Polynesia, though pearl diving does involve oysters. There also was that weird bit with Phil introducing Tim, the dog that was at one of the pit stops.

    I'm wondering if that is more than coincidence and animals (or dogs) might play a role in the final episode puzzle.

    ^ Wow. Interesting observations because until you said that, it never even occured to me! You get the gold prize if that turns out to be try about animals in the final challenge! I definitely did pick up on Phil introducing the dog (and promptly forgot his name by the end of the show), but never noticed the animals link at all.

    I probably wouldn't be writing something like that in my journal (uhm, they are allowed to keep journals, right? to keep notes about tasks to prep for that final challenge, which everyone knows will be some kind of memory test?).

    I'll take stupidity for $100, Skittl.

    And I never even picked up on that mistake as they were doing the challenge. When Phil said penalty, I was like YES cause I want them gone, but WHAT?? cause I didn't notice anything. I did notice the close-up of the sled as Wy left it behind, but I didn't pick up on the fact that it was a mistake.

    I kept yelling for You Tube to just get to that sled climb AHEAD of Wy because she would have held them up forever.

    And based on the fact that You Tube basically WALKED up a freaking mountain (why did they not take a taxi! everyone else found one so easily! did they think they HAD to walk it??), yet still beat out the 30 minute penalty, it must have taken C&W a long time to do that task.

    And I also want to know why You Tube had to wait for Wy to finish. I think someone said there were two lines ... why didn't they go to the other line when she was taking so long?? Guess it doesn't matter now and I'm so glad Wyner is gone, but why did they have to wait??

    That wasn't their mistake though (I don't think Phil penalized them for using the sled wrong, but for when they decided to stop using them.) After they fell off the first time, I noticed he had turned his sled right side up to try again, Wynonna ditched hers entirely. Then, he started rolling the cheese as well, but kept dragging his sled.

    I thought they wouldn't get their clue because we saw the shot of Wynonna's sled still on the hill.

    (why did they not take a taxi! everyone else found one so easily! did they think they HAD to walk it??),
    I'm looking forward to their video recaps to see if this is explained. They asked for direction to where they could get a taxi, got there, there were no taxis, so I don't know if they did it wrong, or if they got bum directions- but man that had to have SUCKED.

    I didn't care for Wynonna, or Chuck.

    She was not ready for the AR experience.
    I wonder if he forced it on her.

    Chuck was dreadful; berating her at every opportunity.
    He always seemed to think it was OK; that she "liked" it.
    It was plain that she didn't.

    Are they still together?

    I also thought they would not get their clue because of ther shot of the sled at the top of the hill - but then we saw them carting the cheeses to the bard on sleds, so I thought they'd gone back and we just didn't see it cause it didn't affect the outcome (like how we didn't see any of the other teams depart once A&B discovered all teams would be on the same plane).

    When Chuck and Whine-onna were...somewhere (at one of the train stations?)....she was bitching to the camera about how he never treats her right, and he was standing behind her reading something, and after a pause she said it again, I felt like it was a glimpse into their entire relationship. She's completely passive agrressive, and he deals with it by ignoring her indirect whining.

    As for YT waiting to do the lateral climb, I bet either teams had to stay in the line they originally chose, or (more likely) they just didn't know everyone else had finished. It looked like the other line was on a different floor, so they wouldn't have seen how many teams were left.

    The interviews with the eliminated teams usually come out on Tuesday/Wednesday. It will be interesting to see if their shaky marriage survived a 2/3 trip around the world!
