    Wow! The tattoo couple couldn't find the flag or the boats even though they were both right in front of them! They definitely win the clueless prize for the 1st episode.

    Perhaps I watch too much reality TV, but when the couples were introduced my guess was the black couple or the tattoo couple going home.


    Thankfully that watermelon broke. Had, for some reason, it not broke... she would have been hospitalized.

    Not the only thing that's stacked....IIRC, I mentioned to my wife that one of the female contestants was EXTREMELY top-heavy....

    Why do they always choose the biggest morons to represent Las Vegas on these shows, oh wait because most of the people in this town are like that... :D

    I'm a little surprised they didn't take her to the hospital anyway to check for a brain injury. Blows to the head like that are nothing to mess around with.

    Good episode. No one stands out for me just yet. Team Tattoo isn't the brightest, but at least they admit as much.

    I'll reserve judgment on everyone else for now, but I'm liking the the start.

    I actually heard a traffic specialist figurehead on the radio one day instructing people to NOT use your signals because they give away your intentions to other drivers and therefore YOU get screwed on making your turn as someone takes advantage of your forecast by zooming in ahead and cutting in front of you. He's got a point, but it is annoying nonetheless. I always use my turn signals, but it seems a majority don't. It irks me I get screwed by others by properly driving. Also there's nothing more irritating on the road than leaving adequate stopping space in front and then some bozo sliding in the open space negating the safe stopping distance. I have much pent-up road rage and wish I could launch a barrage of eggs at the car in front of me for such action.

    I notice the police here rarely use turn signals either, so it must be the norm.

    And I give them a lot of credit for being at the back of the pack and fearing elimination, making bone-head moves, and somehow through all that not fighting with one another.

    :up:


    So how amazingly off track did the black guys get? I wasn't paying attention too closely but did they drive the wrong way for hours or something?

    Interesting cast so far. Think I'm rooting for the a capella singers...they've got a BJ & Tyler vibe to them that I quite like. The home shopping hosts seem like a ticking time bomb; no one can maintain that level of enthusiasm for so many legs without lashing out along the way. Way too many couples in the dating phase of the relationship (and did I miss the token gay couple?).

    Chad and Stephanie need to get off my screen now. The Jonathan and Victoria potential is strong in these two, but I just don't care enough to want to see the forthcoming implosion.

    Was pink the required shirt color for all women on the opening leg, or something? It made it even more difficult than usual to tell teams apart.

    Something made me think the doctors are the token gay couple. I'm probably wrong.


    So the QVC hyper couple... there was a point where they were excited about the watermelon competition thinking it had to do with horses, and one of them rides.

    But in the clip where they discussed it, blondie was getting all excited. Don't they film those hours after the leg is over? How could she be that over-the-top enthusiastic after the event happened. That's crazy.

    I thought they were too. Maybe the glee club is too. Not that any of it really matters.

    Maybe Team Glee, but I am not seeing it with the doctors.

    If I had to bet money on what team was the token gay team, I would have said the team that was eliminated last night.

    There was lots of female jump-hugging, which is a good thing.

    I didn't sense it with Team Glee, but I did with the two black guys.

    But my gaydar is horrendous. Been out of warranty for 40+ years and doesn't get much use and was never calibrated.

    It looks like at Elimination Station they picked a room with a king size bed. NTTAWWT. :)

    Why was Phil even asking them?


    It seemed out of the blue to me.

    I only heard Arizona (missed Arizona University if that is what they said) and University of Phoenix headquarters are in Arizona.
