    I actually feel bad for the cheerleaders. They worked hard and played fair... and STILL they don't win the leg.

    I will feel worse if Kisha & Jen get back into the race after clearly losing it.

    Normally I do too, but the look on the cheerleaders' faces was sooooooooo worth it!!

    Did they just not show Tammy yelling/screaming during the foot massage or was she incredible aat dealing with pain?

    Kinda funny that a swimming pool can reduce those 'tough' sisters to tears.

    I knew something was up when the host was standing at the check-in alone. They usually have a native of the country the teams are in greet them as they arrive.

    I knew no one could do the sync. It is nearly impossible unless you practice it at least a hundred times.

    Jaimie looked especially pretty in this episode, too bad she so damn ugly.

    I knew something was up because the finale is in 2 weeks. So this was either another non-elim or a "to be continued", which they've done before. While I was also looking forward to the sisters leaving in tears I knew it wasn't going to happen tonight. Took some of the fun out of the episode.

    I felt bad for the cheerleaders not finally winning a leg. I hope they win it all at the end.

    I knew that was going to happen as soon as Phil did his "this is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race" without any mention whatsoever of "the last team to arrive may/will be eliminated". And I really did feel bad for the cheerleaders that they don't actually win anything for their efforts.

    I'm glad, too, that something that is that devastating for someone to face won't get Keisha and Jen eliminated from the race. But I won't be really upset if they finish last in the continuation stage.

    Gotta love the way Tammy looked in that swim suit! :up: :up: :up:

    Margie and Luke were still getting on my nerves at the airport. Margie, darlin', you went to the wrong counter. Keisha and Jen moved to the right one once they heard that's where they had to get their tickets. There's no reason whatsoever that you should be expecting that they step aside and let you in first. You messed up, deal with it.

    Couldn't they have just stood on the end of the board, counted to three, and then just stepped off at the same time without bouncing? (Or was it spelled out in the clue?)

    I'm sure it is, but they weren't even making an effort to try and synchronize with each other... either team. :) Even a simple, "one, two, three, go"... heck even the divers at the Olympics do that!

    It looked to me like Tammy and Victor's main problem was they were making no effort to synchronize, then they'd get to the end of the board, and he'd jump off immediately and she'd make a half balking effort at doing the bounce on the board and then the jump. I can't believe they did not figure it out a little better in what looked to be like quite a lot of jumps. :)

    If they do manage to make it to the next round, they are going to be awfully happy that Kisha pushed her so hard to "at least finish strong."

    I think they did have to bounce 'cause as you say it would be much easier just to sync the jump.

    -1 on the Michael Phelps suits. I was so ready to see Jaime and Cara in proper revealing swimsuits and we get those hideous things instead.

    For having underrated herself in swimming, Tammy did quite well in time I think. I was wondering why she didn't avail herself of the life-vest tho. And Victor is a wimp just get in the damn car and work out your cramp on the way to the destination geez.

    I don't think the word "tough" needs to be in inverted comma's here. The girl could barely keep her head above water. She was terrified of it, but still jumped in the pool, over and over. Far more impressive than the deaf kid's 'courage' in running the race.

    My first thought would have been to settle on a singsong snippet of something to coordinate the two of them rhythmically. Even a drum cadence- anything to get their minds on the same wavelength and structure a step, step, bounce, bounce, jump routine.
    And do a few run throughs on the ground- that jumping/swimming repeatedly is tiring.

    It's been said 1,000 times in the past about TAR and Survivor but here it goes again. How does one dare go on one of these shows without knowing how to swim, ride a bike, start a fire, etc.? Anyone that has watched these shows knows there is a strong possibility you will have to do one of these things.

    It seems if the situation was flipped so that Luke was crying about the task while the sisters excelled at it, they'd be standing there pointing and giggling in amusement at him.
