You're not a sushi fan, I see. I'd view it as an opportunity, not a chore.

I am. But during racing competition I would not want to spend the time to eat 20-30 pieces of sushi.

I wouldn't want to find a needle in a haystack but they make them do that stuff all the time.

My point is that I would think if that was part of the task they would have told us.

Yeah, I knew that. I misinterpreted what he said. I thought he meant that he saw them eating sushi before getting the bingo.

You can choose to believe what you want. I'll choose to believe what I heard straight from the mouth of one of the contestants.

Any chance they were kidding when they said it? It doesn't make sense to me from a task pov and it wasn't mentioned when Phil described what had to be done. Not pretending you didn't hear it or see it, but it is just hard to fathom from my pov.

Kind of like someone saying they saw a ghost or a ufo. Not saying they are a liar or anything, but it's hard to believe since I didn't see it myself.

I could easily see one of the teams misinterpretting what the clue instructed them to do. I thought from the voice over while watching that once the team got bingo (or S-U-S-H-I), that they had to each the five pieces that aligned to give them that win. Not all from their card, not all they had on their card when someone else won.

If a team interpretted it that way, and ate much more sushi than they needed to, then that's on them.

When Phil does the voiceover explaining the rules of the task, he's just hitting the high points. There are many more detailed rules for most tasks that we never know about.

This makes sense to me.

It's just as likely (IMO) that they didn't bring it up because it didn't factor in the outcome. They drop roadblocks or detours from the airing from time to time when they don't factor in, all the better to edit in more drama. But it's not important enough to argue about.

Good point. Doing it (the rule) seems silly to me, but this is very plausible.

Another good point. Sorry this became such a big distraction.

Just to allow anyone who cares to check it out, the interviews I referred to can be listened to at: http://www.rffradio.com/archives/499

The specific section in question is during the Ralph and Vanessa interview and starts at about 27:45 into the recording.

Here's what was said:
Quote:
Rob (interviewer): Now moving on into that sushi challenge, did teams make that harder than it actually was, because we didn't see you guys struggle so much on TV last night as we did with Art & JJ and Brendon & Rachel. Did teams just forget how to play bingo, or was it that difficult?

Ralph: Well, it was actually pretty hard, because you had to figure out ... first of all, you had to wait for the right pieces of fish with the right letter to come up, but you had to figure out what the pieces were, and some of them looked so close ...

Vanessa: And Ralph is color blind, on top of that. We wrote down the name of it, and the description, and I think that helped, but still on top of that waiting for the pieces, and then if somebody calls out "Sushi" and wins, then you have to eat everything on your plate and start over.

I heard Vanessa specifically say that she was hungry and was looking forward to eating the Sushi.

I would have done the same thing, too. An opportunity to have free Sushi, in Japan. I would have taken several on the way out the door!

No, I meant I saw them eating EXTRA sushi. They only had to eat the winning 'bingo' (or 'sushi' to be accurate).

Yeah, I don't know. I only remember seeing people eat their S-U-S-H-I pieces before they got their clue, but there seems to be a lot of discussion about this today.

I just finally watched this season on my current trip. I wish Ralph and Vanessa had won, they really grew on me.

And those twins look exactly like Emile Hirsch.
