    I love those long pauses on the mat after Phil tells a team they are the last to arrive.
    You just know that means non-elimination. :)

    How far from the blinking letters were the hockey guys for them to switch tasks? I thought the guy should have just run back and picked up another letter.

    A shame jazz hands sticks around for another show.

    Joey: "I figured it out".
    Rest of the world: "No you didn't. Someone gave you the answer"!!!

    I really can't believe the guys didn't come in last. The soccer moms must have been lost a while. Great job to beat the moms by about 2 seconds.

    I guess I kinda understand some folks not knowing Reagan's "Tear down this wall" speech, but I would have thought the younger teams would have heard about it in school.

    But Ich bin ein Berliner? Seriously some of the teams didn't know that. That is taught in schools isn't it?

    Could Katie have been any less excited about both winning the leg, and winning the cars. She looked pissed.

    I was hoping it was just the shock of actually winning a leg, but I dunno... maybe she was wondering how she would pay the taxes on it, or how many bodies she could store in the trunk. Big hair, big brain!

    Those two really amaze me. "Coming into the race, we thought we'd win every leg, so winning zero has been a shock." Um, really? You think THAT much of yourselves? Unfortunately, they have a chance to win it because no one considers this "power couple" a threat.

    He usually says "I'm sorry to tell you that you've been eliminated from the race." If he says "I'm sorry to tell you that you're the last team to arrive.", generally it's a non-elim. Occasionally he continues "... and you've been eliminated from the race."

    And to the Mom that said "We LED them here.": you could have pulled over to let them pass, and then you could have FOLLOWED them here and you would have still lost the footrace.

    Also whenever he says, "I'm sorry but you are the last team to arrive..." it is always non-elimination. If it's elimination it's, "You are the last team to arrive, and I'm sorry to tell you..."

    i was thinking that they should have tried to lose the other car in traffic, then make a mad dash for the pit stop. i'm never opposed to a good car chase!

    not much intensity to last night's show, and the haunted house challenge was the lamest so far. at least with the toy train challenge there was some assembly required.

    i wonder who stole the backpack??? you would think it would be on camera, right?

    Agreed on the car situation at the end. The hockey brothers had a good strategy. Follow them and beat them on a foot race. And one brother without a backpack could run even faster.

    Which brings us to the stealing of the backpack. Like North Alabama, I'm surprised that it wasn't caught on camera. But I'm also surprised at the contestants that they don't have some sort of cable lock. At least he has his passport with him.

    Does anybody know if he gets extra money to replace some of the things that were stolen?

    She looked like that the entire episode. I forget if it was when they found out they were going to Dresden or when they had to drive to Berlin, but the country singers were yelling and jumping, and Katie just looked pissed.

    I'm sure that once they've al settled in and there isn't much going on, the cameramen get to stop filming and get some rest as well.

    My thought on the guys following the girls at the end was what if the girls find a place to park and there's not another spot close by? I wonder if the race has spots reserved near the different locations so we don't have to see them circling the block.

    Also, let's talk about the Youtubers and the country singers trying to answer those robo questions in the car.

    Was it Roosevelt?
    Is it the Great Wall of China?
    I think it was the 80's, maybe it was Bill Clinton.

    Yeah. Was her letter "P" blinking when she got it?

    Cause it wasn't when she delivered it to the museum. If it wasn't she should have had to go back and get a working one.

    I could not believe both teams with the model trains put a tree where it would interfere with the track! I mean, they had all this open space and they put one right by the track?

    If your job is "sit at home and watch Youtube and post some stupid stuff" I'm not sure you paid too much attention in school.

    When they said that about "winning zero has been a shock.." I thought, "You only have to win one leg-ask last year's winners!" ;):p

    Very good point. I'm going to guess that they do have designated parking spaces.
