Interesting title and we're on time!!
Bopper thinks Italy is tropical.
Rachel thinks she and Brendan are idiots (well, she was referring to Americans, but said "we"). I agree... but the girl does rock challenges.
Phil "Once there, they must participate in a Ford commercial..."
So. Army Dude (Dave?) and Rachel. Will their marriage survive this? "She'd better change her demeanor."
Also other Rachel and dude.
I think if I were on this race, I'd quit just to stop being around all these unpleasant people.
He's so meeeeaaaaaaan to her!
about the border agents completing the fast forward and inflating their already well padded egos...
Man, I'd totally go with the salami one. Especially since my husband has an incredible attention to detail- he'd remember all of them, and I could just eat yummy salami
I will take the Border Patrol and their giant egos over fecking Rachel and her incessant whining and
I hate when teams whine that they are gonna quit and then don't follow up with it. There should be some kind of rule that if you threaten to quit at least 3 times in the same leg, you are automatically eliminated...
I'm bummed she didn't fling herself in front of a car, like she threatened.
Yeah, she says she wants to quit, and all I can think is the Dowager from Downton Abbey saying to Carlisle, "Promise??"
Damn those border agents, I can't hate on them anymore!
OMG- that is the sweetest thing I have ever seen happen on the amazing race.
I did NOT like the first place guys- but they are good people, who seriously put their money where their mouth is.
And, I totally expected NEL.
Word. Look at the class (in spite of the accents ) being displayed on the mat right now.
Rachel--please take note.
Rachel and class in the same post...
(and yeah, I'll take arrogant as hell- even without the good hearts- over whiny and threatening to quit )
Glad it was non-elim. Kentucky made a mistake early on, but they seemed to really rock those tasks and they have a positive attitude, but they were too far behind on the flight.
Next week looks fun!
My husband and I were laughing when they were in the car.
Her: I think you should follow the directions.
Him: SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
Her: I will when you follow the directions
Him: I know what I am doing, dammit.
Her: Fine, but I still think you should follow the directions.
Not that we have ever had this conversation on road trips or anything.
Rachel & Brendan -- get off my show, please.
Amen to that!
I'd definitely go with the salami. If I ever find myself in Italy and someone offers me a bunch of different salami, just have me committed if my response is to cry and whine. Rachel cannot get off my tv fast enough.
I know Rachel is a hot mess x infinity, but Angel is a bitch.
^^This - and I've never seen Big Brother so I have no history of hating her.
Last night we were watching live and so wished we could have fast forwarded past her every time she was on screen.
I Angel for her brand of bitch -- she OWNS it. She and Roids are ornery ... fun, dirty mouths, and snarky snarky snarky.
Besides, ANYONE making Red Rachel the butt of their jokes and ridicule is in my book.
BBro Rachel is the worst. Continual nails-on-the-chalkboard raw nerve. Absolutely the worst TARRacer to have to watch ... not counting the Weaver females from the season we most try to forget.
The "Tools" aren't living up to their FSU nickname, as they seem to be far sweeter and self-effacing than their looks, career choice, introduction video and episode, and nickname would indicate.
The demeaning, holier-than-thou Army Douchebag could learn something from these two muscle bunnies.
Strong leg. Nice reflection of Italy, good challenges, and a great last scene. Team BPA's charity seemed very genuine and heartfelt. They obviously didn't expect to be pulled out on-camera to do the gifting, and it could've been far more uncomfortable than it was (I believe that charity should be as intended -- done in private and without fanfare) ... but it turned out to be a special scene.
Agree! I LOVE Angel! And I think Roids is pretty hot, too. They are probably my favorite team this season. With all the snarking, they seem to get along with each other fairly well.
On to Rachel. W... T... F.... was with the outfit? The greens didn't even compliment each other! Did she have a history of wearing sparkly, slime green wrap skirts over bulky sweats in BB? Gosh, I can't stand that woman. She is the real tool on this race. Brendan nees to run far, far away and as quickly as possible.
And, darn it TAR, you made me cry. The charity from the Border Patrol guys was very, very decent and totally unexpected. Good for them, and good for Bopper and Pukey staying in the race. I've come to like them even though I can only understand them with subtitles.
Forgot to add that the name of BOTH challenges sounded like euphemisms for, uh, something else. Was that intentional, or just my own dirty mind?
You forgot the part where Vanessa said that Team Brenchel WOULD do the sausage detour, snicker, snicker--cut to Brenchel heading off to the sausage detour.
Pfffft. You just have a crush on "Fitness."
It was bright yellow on my screen, which I think might be even worse .
For those of you who are meeting Brenchel for the first time, yes, Rachel is nauseating with her crocadile tears & demands to be treated with kid gloves but make no mistake, Brenden is no prize. He is arrogant, overbearing & surprise, surprise: in this episode he found time to list all his degrees. They believe they are more intelligent than anyone else, better looking & oh! so charming. Why don't people love them? I think its interesting that they aren't getting extra help from locals the way that Rob & Amber did.
This. He's a complete jerk, and she's the one who should be Once Brendan was eliminated last season, she actually wasn't too bad - and she won.
I'm not sure how widely spread Big Brother is broadcast around the world like Survivor is, so I'm sure that's probably part of it. I think Brenchel fully expected to be recognized and helped along everywhere they went.
Eh, she seems like a run of the mill high school "mean girl" picking on easy targets and thinking it makes her adorable and funny. And she seems obsessed with Rachel I will if her focusing on what Rachel is doing instead of her own race causes them to get eliminated.
That said, Rachel is a nightmare. The whole "I did this show so I could have a free trip around the world...it was supposed to be FUN...wah wah wah..." I guess Brenchel didn't bother watching any previous seasons of TAR before signing up?
Yes, it should be fun.
However, there is some effort involved.
