The Amazing Race - Sri Lanka(2) - OAD 3/30/2014

Another non-elim. This was a little more of a surprise than normal as the teams are due to fly to a new location next time (no spoilers from the 'next time' portion of the show). Usually, if memory serves, the non-elims are when they continue racing in the same location.

Looks like for once, the teams all finished very close to each other - even the not-so-obvious ones. At least we get to see some more eye candy for another week!

It was hilarious to see how long Rachel went filling up the green Tuk-Tuks. Read the clue again!!! But even after she did that somebody had to tell her what she was doing wrong.

Yeah, I was hoping they wouldn't notice until it was too late! They seem to have a charmed existence on the show.

...and Lord, PLEASE don't let them win - the thought of them breeding is unbearable!!!!

Any game device that keeps the blondes in the competition is fine with me.

Pretty much the same character traits that got her thru bar challenge tripped her up her in this one, dogged determination and tunnel vision.

The country blondes are tagging along at this point, if they don't get help during a leg they tail behind. Don't see them making it another week. Perhaps they'll wrangle the other Express pass with their feminine charms.

I thought they could only give out one. The other one must be used by the Cowboys.

Correct, and if my math is right, before the end of the next episode.

Kind of expecting to see a U-turn next time as we haven't had one yet.

I stand corrected. Be funny if they tried their hardest and at the end the Cowboys said we're not allowed to give it you.

THIS!!

When it was down to the Trotters and the Country Singers, I was conflicted, because I like FT and BE but I much prefer looking at the girls. So I was very glad when Phil told them it was non-elim.

You said this non-elim was unexpected and then said most non-elims happen in this scenario when it's the second straight leg in the same location.

Usually it is the transition from the first leg into the second leg of the same location. That is what he is trying to say.

Correct - not when they're changing locations. Don't see what's confusing about that, sorry.

I'm happy it was non elim, I like the singers and the Trotters. There really isn't a team I "hate" (hasn't been since the end of the first leg).

I was like you until this episode. The Afghanimals were back to their old tricks telling a tuk tuk to block the cowboy's taxi.

Same here. For once I was glad for the non-elim

Again, we have two episodes in the same location. That's three locations in a row. I'm guessing this is a cost cutting measure.

I thought the Afghanimals were back to their obnoxious game playing worst, and they used that horrible Arab "scream" that just grates on my nerves.

One of the GT lifting the little car was awesome!!

They go through the first challenge and then all bunch up at the train? Kind of made what happened there meaningless. I get a bunch up at the beginning of a race leg, or after a flight, but after a challenge?
