Advertisements Wow, those teams all finished incredibly close to one another. I've never seen all the teams together at the mat before. It will be interesting at the beginning of next week to see how much time there was between first and 9th. Jet and Cord really screwed up trying to run to the first challenge. They probably wasted over an hour. Lucky for them, they got a challenge that was right up their alley (putting the car together). And they made a very good decision to give the Express Pass when they did. If you can give it away and the other team will use it immediately so it's out of play, yet it doesn't cause you to come in last, then you've played it perfectly. I was going to feel really bad for Mark and Mallory if they finished last because they went back for the backpack. But they got to the featherball challenge while all the other teams were still there, so I think it's safe to say they came in last because they sucked at featherball. I was really surprised that Mark was so hung up on his backpack. What could possibly be in there that's important enough to cost yourself a chance at continuing in the race? Surprised nobody tried the Chinese Cup side of the Detour. I wonder if it was just really far away or if there was something about the description that made the teams decide it wasn't a good choice.
