    I think, in general, Caite didn't do much in the race to help her cause. The final exchange was favorable to a degree.

    Brandy is like Russell in Survivor HvV. There is a social aspect to this game that she never got. She was u-turned precisely cause she was such a witch that they wanted her gone. Sure, any other team would have been more strategic, but they wanted her gone more than they wanted to increase their chance of winning.

    BTW, editing aside, it was pretty close. If you look at the shadows of the goal posts, they were nearly 90 degrees straight out when both the first two teams came in and much more slanted for Bret and Caite who clearly got there much later.

    Carol looks absolutely aghast at what Brandy is spewing!

    I assume they're no longer together. It's pretty clear that Carol saw a side of Brandy she hadn't seen before.

    I think there should be more of a chance to jockey for first place during the final leg. Once the brothers got off to a head start and had a good cab driver then it seemed very tough for anyone to catch up. The order you get off the plane in should not determine the winner. As anyone who has flown knows, being at the back of the plane can cause a 15 minute or more delay in actually getting out. I would be curious to see how much of a headstart that gave them and how far ahead of the cowboys they finished to see how much time they gained overall.

    I will slightly amend my opinion of the Brothers. Dan seemed like an amazingly good, supportive brother. It was Jordan's constant whining that turned me off the team.

    Caite was a big whiner also and I got lost count how many times she said "I just want to hit you in the face right now" or some such statement.

    The cowboys were one of the best teams I have ever seen on the show. Incredibly supportive. Were never shown arguing. Never bad mouthed the other contestants. And they cracked me up! The one shouting out ridiculous instructions to annoy Dan was great!

    I need to start a "Facebook needs a Hate button" campaign just for situations like this.

    From a People interview:

    You had been dating less than a year when you started. How’d that affect your relationship?
    Carol: Getting ready for the race hijacked the honeymoon part of our relationship … Our relationship was more disposable because of its newness. I cannot recommend this for new couples.
    Brandy: It took a toll. We’re living in different cities and focusing on being friends right now.

    Oh my gravy, what a finish.

    They showed it because TV loves drama. I'm guessing that's the worst and most protracted negative discussion they've had at the finish line shooting TAR. there's no way they weren't going to air that. ;)

    It was hysterical hearing Brandy complain about Caite holding a grudge and telling her to "grow up." So very ironic.

    Seemed like her biggest gripe with Caite was being called "lesbians". :rolleyes:

    Wow - she just doesn't have a clue does she?

    Sure, they hadn't won, but it's not just about that. Take out the person you know you can beat. Get one step further. Doesn't make Caite and Brent better players, but it is arguably a very sound strategic decision. One step forward - one step closer - they may not have been able to eliminate the Cowboys, they may not have been able to eliminate the Cops had they made that choice. Sure, it was a personal decision, but it also worked. What Crabby ***** fails to recognize is that perhaps at the final 4, Brent and Caite would have lost to them so it was a GOOD thing they took them out.

    All this shows is more bitter drivel from this ugly ugly woman.

    When they got to the ticket counter, there was a sign that gave the hours when the counter was open. On the same sign was a list of two flights that, I believe, the counter was for. One to SFO & another to ORD.

    The clip of Brandy's rant is hysterical!

    Watch Carol's body language, which is pretty much limited to her eyes. She frequently looks left, right, up, down but never AT Brandy and rarely at the interviewer. She's clearly distancing herself from what Brandy's saying.
