    Man, Blondies with beards was absolutely hilarious. I loved the beard bump :). Maddison: "They're still better looking than us!"

    Hard to understand how Leo and Alana took >10 tries to figure out that poles with flags are not spears. I guess sometimes you get fixated on something and can't see past it. Those actors had to have been SO HAPPY when they finally got it right; they must have been so tired!

    It ended up Haley/Kaylynn didn't need to use their time-out since they beat Aparna and Eswar anyway. Clever of the cabal to get them to use it up though!

    It was funny when Hung told Chee to not be so loud giving answers to the Sultan I thought she meant because it was disrespectful :p! It was only later that I realized she didn't want other teams to hear the answers. Duh.

    I am not liking all this inter teamwork. Reminds me of a bad Survivor season.

    Agree that the alliances are ruining the season. For me at least. I love the blondes. They have no shot to win but I love them.

    From the previews:

    The beard bros are also getting tired of the football dudes' take-but-not-give attitude!

    It's really interesting how like people are attracted to each other... Leo and Alana are born to be with each other... I really liked watching them, and respected their game play...especially since they are outside of this unhealthy 5 person alliance... Yeah, Leo was a little too salty for too long on that yield... But I really don't blame him for harboring those feelings... I am not quite sure why the boyfriends are so passionately working against Leo and Alan besides the truck decorating episode where they helped the blondes... Again, I guess both sides are being a little petty... But generally speaking, I hate to see Leo and Alana go... I thought they were entertaining, and I actually hate the dynamics and the game play of this new-style TAR alliance...

    Love the blonde sisters... They just seem to fumble around and continue to survive, and they have a good spirit about them... As others have said, they are terrible at the game...but things are stacked up against them even more that they are not part of this stupid 5-team alliance... Ugh...

    I wonder how they would have handled the producers would have handled the speed bump if the bearded guys were the last team to arrive on the previous leg, and they had to do the speed bump... For some reason, this was bothering me while I was watching the whole episode... What if! :)

    The football players do need to figure out how to manage their perception that they are always takers and never givers... Even in normal life you need to manage these perceptions and ensure proper reciprocation, etc... I am a little shocked that football players wouldn't know this immediately... It's something that I would think would come naturally to people that have grown up playing team sports...

    Loving this season, but the 5-person TAR alliance is kind of ruining it for me... I hope this doesn't become a trend... And I hope that if it does, that the producers put rules in place that will disallow egregious sharing (cheating) between teams... If you need to unscramble words, and that's a part of the challenge, I think you should be unscrambling words...period... Maybe each team needs to unscramble a different set of letters (which of course would require a different implementation of the challenge)...

    I'm rooting for Leo and Alana to be eliminated next. I find them to be so completely unlikeable. I would be happy with any of the other teams winning, but I'm rooting for Will and James.

    I got a kick out of Hung and Chee - "you have 90 seconds to be cranky and then you're done."

    Uh... Did you watch the entire episode before you posted here? Leo and Alana were the ones eliminated... So your wish came true!

    The Cal siblings didn't mention that they went to Cal this episode... They also didn't get a lot of air time on this episode's edit...

    I especially liked that she was telling him that he only had 90 seconds and that he had to let it go, all without actually giving him the chance to have his 90 seconds of venting.

    I do have to say that the blondes were still super cute with beards, even if Hung didn't recognize them as they went by leaving the challenge. I liked Leo and Alana, but I won't miss Leo's running tights.

    Leo reminds me a lot of Leonard from the Big Bang Theory...

    My wife was sitting next to me while I was watching and told me she would be pissed if she was told how long she was allowed to feel pissed, especially if she was told 90 seconds.

    The funny thing was Chee said he was over it, then Hung said "no, you can't be over it yet, you have 90 seconds to get over it".

    It is crappy to be told you have 90 seconds. But, I get it in some ways: it's not a normal time where you can just feel your feelings... it's a race for $1m and so you have to get over that stuff and not dwell on it. They should say, after the race is over we'll have a big fight and say everything we want to say but until then, put it aside.

    Hung and Chee can go next. If not for DeAngelo telling Hung to look for the letters to unscramble on the stairs on the way up, she may have wasted a trip like he did. She was FREAKING out the whole time, so I doubt that without DeAngelo's information she would have figured it out on the first try.

    So, she can be butthurt at the NFL guys all she wants, but in reality they shared with her first and actually acted like an alliance.

    Yeah, I hope she's gone next. And when she is eliminated, she can only whine about it for 90 seconds. No more, no less. Buh-bye.
