    In their defense, it was a LADA. Gear box as mushy as an overcooked pea.

    As far as I remember, just Keisha or Jen. Did Tammy admit it as well? I was surprised the thong wearer was one of the flight attendants and not the cheerleader.

    I think the mom and son are in the mix, but I think there is going to be a physical challenge that she will not be able to do, or at least not do well. What would have happened had she had to run 1.4 miles?


    :lol:

    There was something odd about the underwear challange. The first few runners obviously were wearing very similar underwear... Not sure if they were all going commando or if they had a choice.

    Does anyone know where I can get a Lada in America? Would make great cars for rotten kids.

    One of the contestants didn't wear underwear so she had to have some form of clothing so the show provided her with it!
    I wish they had showed the full thong and not blurred it out!

    They admitted on the broadcast that contestants could wear other underwear, I'm guessing their own from their backpack, though I'm not sure they said. I couldn't figure why the thong wearer (I'm not so great on the names until more are out) didn't wear something else--presumably that's all she had with her. :)

    Yes i heard that.. the odd thing was that the two guys. Stunt guy and Deaf guy both had similar underwear. Same with the two front leading woman and the woman that went commando. Only one that seemed to not be grouped was thong lady.

    That was why I brought it up. Hope they bring back shaving the head to Jump ahead. :D

    I was also rather annoyed that the non-elimination came after elimenting a strong team. I am sure they say that these are predetermined but one has to wonder if they are looking to try and level the groups as much as possible to keep things as interesting as possible.

    I was also annoyed at that. Imagine how "interesting" it could have been with a strong angry team still in the race.

    I just think they didn't have the heart to send a team home after making them run in their underwear in Siberia!

    Coming down to the end now! What I couldn't understand last night was the focus on the poverty of India. Then, you see the teams dancing around in a costume and the Indian people giving money for them dancing like that. A little contradicting.....

    All I want to know is:

    how the heck did the flight attendants end up losing to the stuntmen? their cab driver must've really been a bad driver.

    OK, Mom tried to heatstroke out and the stuntmen hosed themselves. Wife was surprised to see Phil jump to help so fast.

    The only thing we could think was that the stuntmen's task was closer to the Pit Stop than the flight attendants. Or creative editing.


    I thought the one penalty on the stuntmen for placing the pumps in the box was wrong. There have been many occasion on the various seasons where teams have done things to hinder other teams and were not penalized. They didn't hide them, they just put them in the box beside where they were sitting.

    I have to wonder if the outcome would have been different had the father and son either 1) gone with the group at the beginning instead of thinking they were going the right way and 2) if they had listened to the first person that told them the ape was at the zoo?

    I agree, I thought that penalty was bull crap. It's not like they took the pumps with them or hid them around the block.

    There are apparently a lot of different rules in the clue that we never hear. It is entirely conceivable that something was mentioned about not touching anyone of the other pumps. It really seemed to me that there were enough pumps for each team to have one and that they may have in fact been able to take one with them so they could pump the the tires if they became flat. I didn't see anyone do this of course, but it may have been possible.

    Either way, I'm sure it was a rule somewhere that we didn't see.

    Did the lawyers and someone else go with a flat tire?

    I wasn't suprised to see Phil help out at all! He's helped other contestants in the past as well. He's also recently started an across the country bike ride to support Multiple Sclerosis. He seems like a genuine, caring individual.
