    Did anybody else think they were a little inconsistent at the road block when it came to judging who made it across and who didn't?

    Not sure what you mean. They said that one lives in New Orleans and the other lives in California, so I guess they don't get to see each other much. Maybe that makes for the wierd vibe. Maybe they don't really know each other that well these days.

    The title of the Ep should have been "God doesn't care if we win the Amazing Race". That line of theirs alone would have had me rooting for them to the end.

    "Who's your Tool" dad has to go.

    I don't have the 1st episode saved, but it might have been one of the blondes who was already calling one of the other teams bitches while in the parking lot shuttle. Today it was one of the blondes for sure referring to the little ***** who made it over the canal. On my couch that team is now the Blonde Bitches.

    Ronald was a straight up jerk. He had that know it all attitude. He's probably one of those people who thinks they know it all, until they are proven wrong, then they won't admit to being wrong. He's also very rude to his daughter.

    I guess the blonde who said "I could use a facial" got her wish, a mud facial.

    Glad to see that Vixen is the man of the relationship. She hoisted all but the last item, and she had to ride the bike with his goth butt in the basket.

    What made Old Dude think that he would be good at running and pole vaulting over a mud filled trench?

    Have to give her props for keeping her cool. You can tell she was trying very hard not to be confrontational, but he just kept going and going and going.

    Part of me is rooting for HER team... for the same reason I wanted Zach to win bec he was "THE" team (he basically did all the roadblocks, except for one) AND had to deal with Flo.

    Finally, a religious team that knows that God isn't invested in the outcome of The Amazing Race! :up: I really liked them, and I wish that they could have stayed longer. They were classy, without being prissy.

    Oh, my God, I wanted to hurt Ronald. I hope that he really does see how he treats her (and others), but I doubt it.

    I was impressed by the blondes too.

    Gramps would annoy the ever-living daylight out of me by being so slow. There's a wide chasm between not hurrying so much that you miss details and dilly-dallying. He was far too close to dilly-dallying for my taste. I wouldn't have chosen to do the roadblock if I were in his shoes, but OTOH, since each teammate has to do a certain number of them, and you don't know what would be coming up that would be impossible for him to do, maybe he was playing the odds. It worked out, as unpleasant as it looked.

    While watching this, I tried to imagine being on the Amazing Race with my dad, and I pictured it to be just like Ronald and his daughter. I truly, truly, feel for her. :( Ugh.

    I will miss the ministers - I really liked them, and they were so sweet with each other.

    The bakfiets (cargo bikes) sure looked dangerous. I'm surprised the participants weren't wearing helmets, especially the passengers.

    I loved the look Phil had as one of the early teams rode right by him.

    He's the poster boy for passive aggressive disorder. He won't make a decision forcing her to do it just so he can criticize. Then we she accedes, he criticizes her for acceding. Arghhhhhhhhh

    very uncomfortable watching brother and sister holding hands walking down the street at one point...

    I like the team with the guy that looks like Mark Wahlberg...don't like the Blondes at all...does anyone think they've had plastic surgery done?

    No idea about the first episode, but in this one, I'm 99% sure that it was Jennifer (the blonde who is paired with Nathan) who was calling one of the blondes (I'm not sure if it was Shana or Jennifer -- whoever did the mud jumping) a *****. The blonde-team was the "victim" of the ***** name-calling, not the perpetrators.

    I gained alot of respect for the blondes on this episode. They may act prissy when being interviewed by the camera, but they did really well in the challenges this week. They were busting it.

    I mentioned this resemblance last night to my wife and she just ignored me like she does when she thinks I'm being an idiot. :p

    I got a kick out of the treatment of the furniture in the hoisting challenge. Just roll the TV over on the pavement. :eek: And wouldn't you have to take the weights and pendulum out before you hoisted the clock? The glass in the door is history if you don't. The last one we saw getting hauled in the window didn't even have a door on it anymore. :eek:

    That was probably the best line of the whole show. I loved it! And the "no comment" from the grandson when his grandfather stripped down was priceless.

    I'm very sad to see the ministers leave. They were so sweet and kind. I knew they wouldn't win, but I applaud them for making the effort. I was really sad when it was clear they were gonners.

    I was going to mention the resemblance as well, but my wife would have just said "who?" so I didn't. :p

    But it's there. Definately a look-alike.

    What made Old Dude think that he would be good at running and pole vaulting over a mud filled trench?


    I think Goofy realizes that Gramps needs to do a few of the roadblocks, and they showed them really checking out the stunt to make sure Gramps could do it before he tried it. Smart idea, since they don't know if more-physically challenging stunts await, not that Goofy is any Olympian.

    And could the Lesbian Ministers have moved any slower, not physically, but mentally. It seemed liked they had to talk about things before they actually did them. "Oh look, there's a bus stop across the street. Oh look, here comes the bus. Oh look there are the other competitors getting on. Do you think we should go? I don't know what do you think? Oh look, there goes the bus. Hmmm.

    I think Ntombi nailed it - they each have to do so many roadblocks that I think he figured this was one he could do. Plus, it looked to me like this was one of a few roadblocks that you could actually get some kind of idea, other than the obscure clue that alludes to something, of what the task is actually going to be before having to decide who will do it. 'Who is acrobatic?' Gramps would not have been my choice just based on that clue.
    I think it was Jennifer that couldn't believe that 'frickin' little b****' (the small one from the Blondies Team) could do the ditch vaulting, not one of the Blondies saying that.

    I'm not disappointed in the ministers being gone. They seemed like one of the 'doomed to fail' teams to me. I liked that they were a team that you could feel good about because they treated each other and the other teams with respect, but I won't miss them. Plus, I really couldn't take Pat smiling - what was with her teeth?

    Daddy Tool was so concerned that the kid being rude would badly reflect on him. Well, it's not the kid that's making him look like a jerk now. They protrayed that team as him having been gone for most of her life growing up, so maybe he didn't treat her that badly when she was young.


    ETA: That's what I get for posting at work, getting intrupted, then looking like a total smeeker! :) That stuff that I parroted was NOT there when I started typing! :D
