    ...or we call it "The Amazing Bottomless Barf Bag"? [​IMG]
    I swear, listening to Amie upchuck the entire episode darn near set *my* gag reflex off...
    Glad to see Paul and Amie go, though. While nice to look at, she wasn't travelling well, and Paul was a jackass 90% of the time...
    "Team Guido" is really starting to get on my nerves. I don't like how they refer to Drew and Kevin as "The Fatties". I wonder how they'd feel if the other teams referred to them as "The Homos"... [​IMG] Maybe next week they get what's coming to them.

    It's getting pretty tense with only 6 teams now. Any misstep could cost any team any chance of advancement.
    I'm sort of glad the frat boys are now in the lead and maintaining, and taking time to mislead team Guido. That was funny. I would also love it if Team Guido got lost like Paul and Amie and just wandered aimlessly until they finished last. I still can't believe the mom and daughter team is not only still alive, but doing well!
    But this game is one where any team can leapfrog another team on any given day.

    Well, I remember during the walkee-talkee thing, that either Drew or Kevin referred to the gay guys as "Bert and Ernie" [​IMG]!!!
    BTW, does anybody know what the "production error" that allowed Paul and Amie to start that leg 4th instead of 5th?? Did the Cameraman have to go to the bathroom or something?
    I'm wondering if the cameraperson has a second responsibility of being a policeman. Who's the say if the team sabatoges the rest of the teams like during the walkee talkee contest or taking as many of the letters as possible thereby ruining the chances of somebody else. Cuthroat I know but I'm always scheming. What if they turned off all the other walkee talkees that they found, etc. etc.
    [edited] Oh, does anybody know if you accidentally stumble upon the final destination, can you just end there? like Paul and Amie last night, it looks like the found the final destination without having to do the camel thing... Not that it mattered, they were the last team anyway, but is that legal?

    If Paul and Amie had just driven up to the final destination, they would have been DQ'd (if they weren't the last to arrive) or turned back to do the rest of that part of the race (if there were other people still en route).

    Anyone notice that there haven't been Fast Fowards the last two episodes? Do you think they left them out of the show because nobody took them, or because they haven't offered them?

    I think they're still there.. I saw one when one team shuffled through the papers. You can only use the fast forward once, so I assume most are trying to save it for as late as possible.

    Am I the only one rooting against Team Guido? I loved seeing cracks in their partnership while the one with glasses was driving and the other was the backseat-non-driver.

    Yep teach tolerance towards others then pick on em!!
    The 2 lawyers impressed me by making up a lot of time.
    If people had of just used the compasses before they left, 30 seconds thats it, and gotten their berrings it would have been better to watch.

    I think it is pretty universal that folks would like to see Team Guido lose. I think this show is far superior to Survivor.

    I liked team Guido at the start of the race, when they were casually kicking everyone's ass and pissing off Frank because of it. I don't want to see them go, but I don't want to see them win.
    I think Kevin and Drew are my favorites now, even though I hated Drew at the start. His constant yelling at everybody really put me off.
    I hope Lenny and Karen lose next.
