    Wow, the bus breaking down was a game changer for a couple of teams.

    Glad to see the special agents still in it.

    The clowns are done, but at least they went out in style (acting all goofy and clown-like).

    Another break-down by Rachel. I bet this isn't the last time that happens this season.

    It would really suck to be eliminated from TAR because you couldn't do simple long division with a pencil & paper. I would have to change my name and move. :eek:

    I didn't really have anything against the clowns, but someone had to go.

    The clown must have really sucked at math. I wonder if the clue he got was a "all other teams have checked in... give it to him" clue. They really didn't seem well suited for TAR. Not observant enough, and no forward-thinking. If you know you're not good at math, immediately team up with someone who is, or at least try to team up.

    What the heck happened on that second bus? Did someone throw a rock at the window or shoot at the bus? And the duct taped cardboard didn't hold up, but for a lonnnnnng bus ride, not surprising.

    Oh Rachel... you and Brendon haven't changed at all since Big Brother.

    • She screws up (big and important or small and insignificant, doesn't matter)
    • she cries and apologizes
    • he offers comfort
    • he explains what she could have done
    • she takes that as criticism and yells at him
    • he gets frustrated and yells at her
    • hilarity ensues
    They will do fine at physical challenges, but the mental ones will kill her.

    I didn't watch Big Brother, so I have no preconceived biases against Rachel. Actually felt sorry for her last night. My guess is that by the end of the race, I'll feel the same way as you do.

    I've never watched BB either. So far it's hard to see the fuss over Rachael. She's no Flo, that's for sure.

    That's your first Rachel breakdown then. Some of us have already seen an average of one per episode for two seasons of Big Brother.

    I'd say something about Rachel, but Martin posted the definitive list. ;)

    The clowns did show some class and a very good attitude at the end. I was also wondering if they got the "It's all over" clue. I bet he didn't ever get a correct number.

    Damn. The team with the connection to TC is out. Too bad.

    I really wanted to like the clowns, but they were just completely ill-prepared for the race. No sense of urgency, no competitive bone (that they showed). Great people I'm sure, but clearly cast as a "fun" couple rather than a couple with a snowball's chance of winning it.

    Talk about lucky - if there had been racers there in that seat next to the window - yikes!

    I can't remember his username for the life of me, but Jae, who used to be a popular member here, is the male clown's brother. Wasn't his username LudwigVanJaethoven or something like that?

    TenaciousLee. That was his username. I don't think it was posted here-- I heard about it on Facebook, I think.

    Cool about the Jae connection! But the clowns were just too out of it. First the solar collector. What, there is a huge picture all over the side of the box? And they were also weak the first leg. I liked them, but I gave them no chance to last long. :(

    And didn't the clue actually say the only instructions were the picture on the box, or was that just a voice over?
