    Shame Shame!

    1- The program hasn't started yet. (35 minutes early even for the East Coast)
    2- You neglected to include **spoilers** in the thread title.

    So, the lady with the prosthetic leg needs to preboard the plane due to her "handicap", but she can run down the street? Seems like she is just using her "handicap" to her advantage. Not saying I wouldn't too, but I'd defintely call her out on it if I were the others.

    Dang. I was thinking that that the last team would get FF'd or something. Instead they just got F'd...

    Just let me say...I am a woman from Kentucky who does not do everything her "man" tells her to. I would like to see them gone tonight so that the stereotype for Kentuckians is not perpetuated!

    Great start. I hope there are not too many more "surprises". I like the show the way it is. Good cast of characters to root for and against.

    Lame "surprise" but beyond that an interesting start. Too bad all we saw of Seattle was Sea-Tac Airport and I-5, but I guess that's typical for cities where they start the race. I do respect the editing of this show a lot more now after seeing the mediocre "Treasure Hunt."

    Sorry to see the Muslim guys go. I could have learned something about Islam beyond the bomb belts and hijackings we see on the TV news. Kinda weird from a western perspective that they wouldn't shake that girl's hand.

    Sad to see those teams go home. Both had great potential for rooting for them as the race continued. Team Karma was one of my early favorites. As for Team Kentucky, I may have jumped to judgement a little quickly. They seemed very respectful of the culture, although not too much with each other. Rob & Jennifer definitely have "Flotential" and could make for great TV. Overall, great start! Welcome back TAR!

    Well at least the black team didn't get eliminated first. So all that are left now are the black folks, the asians (who, ironically are asking for English speakers in China... yeah yeah I know they're not Chinese...) and 8 other all white teams.

    I wanted the muslim guys to stay. It would be interesting to see what sort of trouble they'd have at the airports.

    At least the first episode didn't have a bunch of people sayng "rapido rapido" to the cab drivers. That was getting old.

    I really want ms. artificial leg to get eliminated. I would have felt sorry for her during the climbing of the wall had she not used the leg to her advantage earlier.

    There is one other team where the wife/girlfriend was nagging her husband/boyfriend. God, they have got to go.

    The gay team is my favorite so far. But I may have other favorites as the race goes on.

    What would be an interesting twist is instead of a non-elim, they have a switch, where an eliminated team gets to take the place of an eliminated one. THAT would be interesting.
