Amazing Race - OAD 10/28/2012

If I hear "C'mon Twinnie" one more time...

For the first time watching this show, I think this week (and last) marks the first time that I HAVEN'T wanted to visit the country featured!

I actually like the twins team (I'm rooting for either them or the hawt Chippendales), but I agree "c'mon twinnie" is starting to grate on my nerves.

Yes, the Twins cheering for each other has to be one of the most annoying sounds ever shown on TV. I don't understand what they think it accomplishes.

Bummed that this was a non-elimination leg. I was going to be happy to see the Beekman's gone. They're not interesting to me at all.

Can't believe the Chippendales counted their bamboo poles before leaving the first time and still missed those three. And why couldn't they just leave their rickshaw and run back and grab the three? Why did they have to take their entire load back to the start?

I agree with Tony - I have no interest in ever visiting Bangladesh. It just seemed like complete chaos, with pedestrians walking across a crowded street with no regard for the taxis and other vehicles.

Everyone in my house groaned when Phil said it was non-elimination. The deep-v brothers bug me.

I thought it was very funny with the one guy on the other team mocking her by screaming the same thing.. It was also BRIEFLY funny that she got the little kid to yell along with her.

I still like the team, EXCEPT for the twinnie yelling.

I thought it was obvious that it was a non elimination leg. Past few seasons the non elimination leg have been on legs that didn't have a equalizer at the start, or a leg with a U-Turn.

I a actually rooting for the twins. They look like they are enjoying every minute of the race. Plus it was interesting to see them do the same tasks as the Chippendales but seemingly (it could just be editing) do so without looking as if they were dying in the process.

How abour Ryan being pissed when they finished second because now it's going to be nearly impossible for them to break the record of nine legs won? Even if that's your goal, you don't say it out loud on national TV. Makes you look like a tool.

Yeah, that really makes me want to start rooting against them.

That was hilarious, and it got her upset. Seeing that response, I would have kept doing it, even louder. I know she's just doing it as a cheerleader thing, but it really is annoying.

It must have been in the rules that you had to take the whole bike back if you didn't have the right amount. In that case, I would have made DAM SURE I had the right stuff before leaving. Everybody count, three times!

The Beakmans aren't a strong enough team to win it all, but I didn't mind the non-elim outcome. Personally I think non-elim legs are stupid in general. If you want to have a two-episode leg, just do a "you're still racing" mat.

I thought they knew it annoyed the other teams which is why it has taken on a life of its own.

I don't know about the other teams, but it sure is annoying *me*.

I still don't like the twins. They seem to think that the world revolves around them and their voices just annoy me.

Not sure who I want to win yet. I know it was a non-elimination, just because they were due for one.

I hate the twins....what's with them saying that Abbie and Ryan were mean? They've never done anything to the twins.

I have told my husband that if he ever refers to his brother as "twinnie," I reserve the right to barf on his shoes.

I like the twins' attitude and I like that they are a strong all-female team that works together, but man, their voices are so freaking annoying. The "Twinnie" shout is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. In fact the whole nickname "Twinnie" is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. It's hard to overlook that and focus on the content of what they are saying.

Or them talking about them being brownies.

I want to see what happens once they aren't in a region that favors them.

The twinnie thing is annoying, but I dont have a big issue with it. They have good teamwork which I like. I hate teams that yell at each other.

I'm not a fan of the twins. The yelling is incredibly annoying and I hate all the bragging about themselves and how great they are.

I agree with everyone saying that the "twinnie" screams are annoying, but I also think they are editing more "twinnies" in there than were actually yelled.
