Advertisements Yeesh. I just can't understand how teams don't re-read the clue once they seem to get into a little bit of trouble. It almost seems like you could make the final three (barring out-of-your-control problems like bad taxi drivers and mechanical failures) if you just had an iron-clad rule that you would re-read every clue slowly and carefully the very first instant you weren't sure what to do next, and that you would watch every demonstration, when offered, fully and completely before trying to do it yourself. I know it's stressful and I know peoples' minds are running in circles, but how many times just this season have we seen people implode for dumb reasons? I wonder what happened at the high-heels race. The boyfriends arrived at the start line well before Hung and Chee, but Hung and Chee took off first. That was weird: I wonder how that flip-flop happened. I was definitely disappointed that the three top teams collaborated together at the end, although I do like the beard bros and they were one of the teams that never even thought to re-read their clue. It seemed like, if they weren't being helped, it would have been a race between the footballers and beard bros as to who could figure it out first and I would have been bummed if beard bros was out. Lost a lot of respect for the footballers. It definitely sucked to be colluded against like that but, oh by the way, don't you think the other teams that were not part of the Mine Five felt exactly the same way when you did it to them? First, to just give up like that was lame. They were close many times! Hell, they could probably have tried every combination in 2 hours especially once the other teams left. Obviously they were going to lose either way but still. There were clearly rules that you had to go back to the truck after every attempt and that both teammates had to be present at the attempt (else someone would have stayed back to listen in), but I wonder if there was also a timeout you had to wait between attempts. Second, the conversation at the mat was just embarrassing for them, for Phil, and for the entire show. Very sad.
