    One thing I forgot to mention that really bugged about ClueboxGate (or whatever we're calling it).

    The Amazing editors were really pushing into Biggest Loser territory with the constant repeating of the same footage, I guess to maximize the "drama" of this whole stupid argument. How many times did we need to see the "confrontations" and the "post-confrontation" bitching about it?

    I liked this part of the EW recap:

    Now that might have been funny (a la Kramer's reenactment of the spitting incident).

    Which was a spoof of Kevin Costner's movie "JFK."

    Which was a spoof of the investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy.

    In China Tammy and Victor seemed to be willing to let the others follow them. They seemed to be proud to know Chinese and want to show it off. A little different from how they acted before. Still, I don't blame the girls for trying to come in first and get the prize. They probably won't win it all, and T & V very likely might, plus they've already come in first and gotten trips before. I don't think the sisters ever have.

    Anybody remember how old Luke is? He really seems immature unless he's a really young teenager. He wants to be treated like a man--don't ever elbow a woman. That seemed to be intentional, no doubt.

    Didn't Tammy and Victor do something similar when teams were following each other. I remember 2 teams getting out at a gas station to get directions and Victor stayed in his car, then got directions from someone at the pump and took off. I guess all their true colors are the same.

    Don't know how anyone can blame Jen for the second altercation when she was IN FRONT of Luke.

    I think the main reason she got upset and called him a b!tch is because of the thrown elbow. We've seen plenty of times over many seasons where ppl all rush to the clue box and bunch up. By now they are used to it. But someone throwing an elbow is not cool.


    When they were at the Philiminator mat I agree with most of the ppl here. I do not believe they were laughing at Luke cuz he was signing or at his 'deafness'. To me they were laughing at the situation and how his mom and him were acting.


    Please do not nominate Tammy and Victor for sainthood. C'mon. One poster is upset that they did not let them go on the mat first?!?! Are you kidding me? If Luke and Margie came in first would you have seen it that way?

    T&V have done their share of shady things. Matter of fact all 4 remaining teams have done some dirt. So lets not act like their hands are clean.


    Those cheerleaders need to go. I can't believe how ppl are focusing on the Luke vs Jen playground fight when those 2 are being disgusting ppl practically every episode. They were "PUSHING" into ppl during the dance task and laughing about it and even said they do not care. I love how they were getting upset that no one spoke english..... IN CHINA. Wow.

    If your hating on Luke or if your hating on Jen but give the cheerleaders a pass then your nuts. lol.





    P.S. Up until this episode I thought the stunt guys were father and son. Never realized they were brothers.

    I didn't think they were father and son, but I sure don't remember hearing that they were brothers until last night. I even made the comment while we were watching the show, "I didn't know they were brothers." Now that I look at their bios, it does say they're brothers, so I guess I just missed it before.

    Margie is totally the 'mother-hen' with Luke, IMHO the prime reason of his inability to read lips which would afford some measure of social independence and his increase his maturity (he is 22yrs old). Luke reflexively looks at his mother whenever he doesn't understand something instead of initiating communication with others. One wonders how Jaime and Cara ever got him away from Margie to write notes back and forth.

    Exactly. In fact, both teams did the exact same thing. Keesha bumped Luke at the 1st box and he knocked her arm off with his elbow (he raised it up, not out for those claiming he "elbowed her"). Then at the 2nd clue box, he ran into her (harder than she did because they were running faster), and she did the EXACT same thing with her elbow that Luke did (also harder than Luke did). It all looked like intense competition, and nothing more.

    The thing I found funny was that Jen and Keesha described both of Luke's actions at the two clue boxes as "body checking", when Keesha did the exact same thing at the two boxes (bumping from behind and rasing the elbow).

    Were they really that far behind? I paid attention to the color of the sky when they and the previous team arrived, and it seemed the same to me.. (unless they were a full day behind)

    Basically, I expected it to be dark when they arrived.

    BTW, I guess I didn't hate it like most of the rest of you guys did. I do think that one of the girls *does* smirk/smile when she gets anxious and it wasn't intentional laughing at him (not that he wouldn't deserve it). I still don't understand how he can grow up and never have heard of Checkov. (and I admit I'm probably misspelling it now)

    The first four teams arrived in Guilin in the middle of the night (their first flights left Bangkok between 1 and 4 pm, and they all departed from Guangzhou at around 9 pm). They got in their taxis when it was dark, but arrived at the salon when it was light. That means that it was likely pretty early in the morning. The rest of the tasks probably took them 2-3 hours, so they likely checked in at the mat before noon. We know M&M left the pit stop at 4:08 pm and their flight left Bangkok at 6:20, so unless they had a longer layover in Guangzhou than the rest of the teams, they made up some time there. If the editing is to be believed, they arrived in Guilin before any of the teams made it to the bridge, so probably before 9:00 am. If it took them an hour to get to the salon, 30 minutes to do the shampoo and the same 2-3 hours to complete the other tasks, they probably checked in around 2:00. The light wouldn't be significantly different between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.

    she's got a shirt? ;)

    I think it's because her chest doubles as a food tray.


    Perhaps Luke overreacted to being called a ***** because he took it as them making fun of his homosexuality?

    I thought it was on his Facebook page, and I have seen other sites refer to him as openly gay. I guess that's still just speculation.

    Anyway, both teams were at blame. If at any time they would've just tried to consider what happened from the other side's point of view, we would have had a nice dull episode since we already knew who would be eliminated. Is it possible for just Tammy and the nice cheerleader to win?

    That could be true, but I doubt they intended it that way since Kisha is gay as well. I guess it was Jen who made the comment, though, so who knows?

    I don't think she meant it that way, either.
    But when his mother told him about that in the car, he acted as if it's a bigger insult than it actually is.
    On the other hand, his reaction - holding his face with his jaw dropped and gasping doesn't really work in a grown man's favor -nor does it make him less of a ***** ;)

    I wondered if he signed "oh no, she di'nt!", only we weren't shown the translation.

    That's what you get for babying a kid. She should have put him on the street years ago so he could have grown up. Deaf people should be embarrased to have him represent them on a TV show.
