    Couple of very smart moves by the brothers this leg. Asking to be moved to 1st class so they could get off the plane sooner, and remembering to take down their answer to the order puzzle.

    Bummer that the cowboys didn't win though.

    And wow did that one lez come off as a major biotch. Her own partner was embarrassed. And Caite put her in her place ... lol.

    I was cheering for the Cowboys and hoping for the brothers to get a penalty for moving up to first class. I was ultimately hoping the brothers would have to wait out a penalty and the cowboys to finish in that time. I was just bitter after the whole line cutting.

    Asking to be moved to 1st class seems to have been a game changer. Congrats to the bros.

    Boo to the mean lesbians at the very end. Classless.

    The Lez were indeed sore losers.

    I don't know which was worse, not clapping at all by the one or the slow deliberate clap that reeked of sarcasm.

    My wife and I wondered about that, but I think the only rule is you cannot purchase 1st class tickets. Asking to be moved is evidently ok, and was a great move.

    Based on neither cowboy doing anything in the airport plus the one cowboy in the ball suit not bumping into the brother, my guess is there is some rule about physical contact. I wonder what would have happened if the cowboys simply walked right in front of them in line though.

    That move didn't really cost them anything though. It's a dick move, but it really didn't cost them anything.

    I don't think the bros cheated. The cowboys (who are bros also BTW) were lax and paid for it.

    Classless and mean egotistical women, and too bad for them. They showed they were neither smarter nor superior, and too bad for us that we had to see them for as long as we did.

    Congratulations to the brothers, they came through when it counted the most.

    were they really? i thought they were just affectionately calling each other a brother because of how close they were.

    I'm thoroughly disappointed. I really only wanted the Cowboys to win. I thought the brothers cutting in line was mega cheap but getting upgraded to first class was smart. Too often though Jordan was just a whiny baby complaining about everything.

    I was frustrated that the cowboys didn't come up with the spinning sooner after he watched Jordan spinning in front of him.

    Wow, the ending with Caite and the lesbian was nuts! I hope the lesbian is so embarrassed watching just how petty she was. I love that she said they should have u-turned the cowboys and not the two who actually won the race.

    I know why they do it but I am beginning to think they should have fewer choke points and allow teams to build up bigger leads.

    Yeah, that sucked that the brothers caught up at the airport on the final leg there.

    The producers really need to come up with a different final Detour. The put-the-race-legs-in-order cards has been done so often teams are preparing for it, which spoils the randomizing effect it should have. I suppose I wouldn't be saying that if the Cowboys had won. Despite my displeasure at the brothers' winning, though, I have to say getting moved to first class was brilliant and what won them the race.

    That was pretty intense. For a gal that kept commenting that Caite was dumb and "on YouTube to prove it", I wonder how she feels now that she have been shown on nationwide TV to be a complete *****?

    The competency of the cab driver again made too much of a difference. I'd like to see a breakdown of how long each team spent during each part of the leg. Remove the duration of the cab rides, and I wonder who would have won.

    What they should have done is have to solve some sort of puzzle to get the pieces for the final task. A treasure-hunt style escapade over the city would have been great..but then it'd take another hour of showtime.
