    I was really pumped for the kid and his grandpa. That was cool to see.

    "We just didn't want to be the schmucks eliminated on the first week."



    That car ride was crazy. I would have freaked out.

    Wow... this is scary. A final 3 I can actually live with. I wouldn't be upset if any of them won, although because of Gramps' creepy factor and Dad's jerkstore factor, I am pulling for TK and Rachel. Even if she should have risked burning her mouth on the tea... it's a RACE, people!!! How those two ARE so laid back about the whole thing. It would be kinda cool to see an "older" person win though, even if it's just half of team. As long as Whiney McBitchies are gone, I'm happy.

    What was that car place for in the first place?!?! It wasn't like they just built it for the race... it served some purpose. But for what? :confused:

    "You were mean to me on my birthday. WAAAAAAHHHHHH!" :rolleyes:

    Kick ass. Rachel put it best; something like, "she is acting like we're doing something to her personally."

    And Jen, if you're working so hard and sweating your asses off, and TK & Rachel are lollygagging through the race, and they're still beating you...

    "Woo Hoo!"

    We had to pause when we realized who would be eliminated to say that a few times, which the snoozing dogs found annoying.

    Rooting for T.K. and Rachel, but can live with any of them winning.

    Did you hear the kid (with grandpa) say he loved "Thai food" when he found out they were going to "Taiwan"

    Good riddance to the blond and her P***y whipped boyfriend!

    Add me to the chorus of people who are glad Nate and Jen are gone. I wonder if she really did have a meltdown and they just didn't air it. I know that's probably not a nice thing to say, but after all, she is Jen. ;) :D

    Looking forward to next week.

    I thought he was joking, but then he said "I have a few Thai friends too" :rolleyes:

    She (Jen) had some weird comments at the end about not focusing on their relationship on the race.
    HELLO? is anybody home? You don't attempt to fix a failing relationship on TAR!!

    That was Nate, wasn't it? I especially liked that they followed it by Ron saying "we know our competition is really smart".


    I agree with the others who said that I wouldn't really be upset with any of the remaining teams winning it.

    I've been worried that they've been showing Jen getting so upset with never coming in first because they would finally come in first on the final leg. I'm glad I was wrong.

    I think it was Nate, as well. I think he also said he had some Thai friends. They also had trouble with the pronunciation of Taipan.

    I think the quote was something like..."I don't know much about Taiwan, but I like T(h)ai food".... :rolleyes:

    Jen reminds me of someone I work with, ironically also named Jenn--completely self-absorbed, and a total drama queen. it's uncanny.

    This and last week's episodes are the first two TAR episodes I've seen ever. Reality TV isn't normally my thing, but I've found them pretty enjoyable.

    Best elimination in a while. Now Nate and Jen can go have Thai food at the loser's lounge. On her birthday? What a shame.

    BOOOOOOYAAAAAAA!!!!

    The place where they rode on the car teeter totter and the underwater jeep was a stunt driving place for the person who asked.

    I was on pins and needles through the whole episode hoping for TK and Rachel to make up th time. I was rewarded for my patience.

    Not to be mean to old people, but look at who's left. TK and Rachel, Don and Nick, and Christina and Ron. Does seem to give the two 20-somethings an advantage, doesn't it?

    Do yourself a favor and go back and watch all the season (except Family Edition). Every season is phenomenal.

    I cheered like a maniac and the camera cut to Nick and Don coming up to the mat!! What an episode! Nate and Jen broke one of the cardinal sins of the Amazing Race-never take a bus unless you HAVE to.

    That attitude from Jen sounds so much like Phil Helmuth or Mike Matusow! :)

    One more on the I'm Glad They're Gone list. Though I would have really liked to have the Goths still in it instead of Nick & Donald. I do prefer N&D over Nate and Jen, but something about the kid rubs me the wrong way and Grandpa - though some think it's "old man cute" - just creeps me out.

    And I wonder how hard it is to get good directions in Taipei when you pronounce it Tep-eye? What a knob. Good riddance.

    Yes, that was Nate; I WANTED to believe he was just joking, seeing if Jen would correct him; but I think he really thought he'd get Thai food in Tiawan.

    And I was extremely worried that was the narrative they were weaving, I was sure we'd hear Phil discussing with Jen how they came in first when it really counted.... SO happy I was wrong about that, too.
