    I don't understand why everyone doesn't understand that Peter was an ass to Sarah because he figured out that he didn't want to be in that relationship any longer. I think that fact is obvious because that they never showed one on one interviews with only him. He just sat back when they did interviews with them together and she was going off on him. The guy was trying to be supportive in the beginning but I think something happened along the way that changed his view of the relationship. Or it happened before the race and he was only with her to stay on the show. He just didn't care anymore. He was doing what most men do by acting like a ****** so the women ends the relationship. Easier that way. :) This is not to say that I think Peter is the coolest dude on the planet.

    If that was the case, he and Sarah should have talked about it on the show together, giving the audience a higher opinion of him than being a jerk. They then could have moved past the "relationship" part and just been a cohesive team working toward a common goal of winning. At some point, he didn't even seem to care about the game any more than he cared about Sarah.

    For a second, I thought that said "Amtrak." Now that'd be something interesting to try to deal with on U.S. legs of "TAR," since I bet most contestants aren't familiar with actually taking Amtrak somewhere.

    They must've updated it, because this one shows it.

    They also both address the question about how it seemed that Peter was making her do all the hard stuff, and they explain about how they got lost so badly.

    That being said (and I'm pretty sure this is NOT the Cho's intention), if the Cho's manage to help 'Bama and KY get to the final three with them, which they did mention as a goal in this episode... well, if I were the Cho's I'd like to know I had those two teams as competition in the final legs of the race.;)

    That video clip was interesting. Still think peter is an ******. But, now I wonder how much Sarah contributed to their problems. As we all realize there is plenty they don't show on TV.

    If you could somehow engineer bad teams to be in teh final 3, more power to you, but that just seems like a longshot, plus, as we have seen, things backfire. You could spend all season being nice to a team, but do you really expect that when it comes down to the final 3, they are going to lay back so you can go get the million?

    I will jump for joy and scream with glee when those ugly broads are kicked to the curb. They are two ugly ugly people.

    The coal miners are not impressing me with their racing skillz, and they're not exactly kind to each other. I guess helping them as much as the Chos did is defensible if it's based on the theory that they're a weak team that will be Philiminated well before the end *anyway* ... so if you help them, and manage not to finish last yourselves, that means some other more-dangerous team *will* get eliminated. But if the Chos were just being kind and trying to build alliances, I think that's a foolish way to play.

    I noticed that too. I wanted to go back and see if he was there for everyone else. I can't remember that happening before, but it is pretty funny.

    Does anyone else make huge leaps in relationship analysis strictly based on how team members react and ineract with each other on the mat?

    The most fascinating part of this show each week is watching how the contestants behave when they do well or do poorly on the mat.

    Are they a couple and do they hug and kiss when they come in first and second, or does the guy just give the girl a high-five? Do they look at each other with disdain when they come in second to last, or is an encouraging pat on the shoulder to be received?

    Perhaps I am the only one, but I think we learn more about the actual relationships between team members on the mat then in the other 41 minutes of the show combined.

    I'd help the weak team (KY) as much as possible thinking that keeping them around over a stronger team would be in my best interests.

    In concept this is a good strategic idea. However, in practice it's very dangerous because you don't always have control over circumstances. In this episode, the Chos took a weak team, who was just ahead of them at the roadblock and probably would have been easy to beat (considering the puzzle and the directions issues) and basically allowed them to go to the head of the class. That meant that the Chos were in last place with fewer weak teams in front of them that they could pass. It worked out for them because some of the other teams screwed up royally, but it's not going to go that well for them every time and it's eventually going to bite them in the ass.

    I kind of agree. Remember that there really was no existing relationship between the 2 of them. Being in a highly stressed environment nonstop with someone that you don't like and clearly annoys you is no fun. He should have done a better job for the sake of the team, but I thought that Peter clearly didn't like Sarah very much, found her extremely annoying (which I also thought she was), and simply didn't really want to continue on the race. There's a reason that you need a preexisting relationship to be on the show. It seems that the producers simply wanted Sarah on the show and just got someone to join up with her.

    That the key - hitting the right time to go balls to the wall. IMO, that would be with 5 teams remining. Life's a gamble.

    On the discussion before about the previews:

    In the same season as the one that everyone had problems with putting gas in the diesel cars (an episode that I thought was absolutely roll on the floor funny), one of the teams managed to nail a concrete post while driving around doing the tasks in town. It wasn't enough to disable the truck, and no big deal seemed to made of it. Course, the upcoming episode it's running into another vehicle, which would certainly make issues more entertaining.
