So then we have three in a row coming up? Thats going to be somewhat different.


Well, if we are to believe Phil and we are interpreting it correctly, then we do have 3 non-elims coming.

With 5 teams, the likely scenario would be

one non-elim with 5 teams.
elimination episode
one non-elim with 4 teams.
elimination episode
and one non-elim with 3 team.
Finale

Don't know, I guess we'll see in a couple of weeks.

Looks that way, Jody. With my luck, Jen'll get off the hook. :nono:

Nothing to interpret as far as I can see. Herdfan's quote was exact to the recording I have. The only way they can back out of it would be to arbitrarilly change the rules of the show mid-stride.

Actually, I don't mind the non-elims ... I'm looking forward to any changes in the penalty from previous seasons (no cash, clothes-on-you-backs only, etc.).

My only worry is that Whiny will be given a free ride when her time comes. That would suck, big time.

The assumption in other forums I follow is that we'll have 3 'to be continued' episodes. You have checkpoints, but without an actual check-in; keep on racing.

Wouldn't be the first time that the reality show websites were wrong. We'll see. :D

Agree, but in this case, the proof was in confirming the info by viewing the actual episode.

That would be my guess as well, but to do 3 in a row would be brutal. I would guess one of them will be the arranged "stay overnight" where the teams are split in 3 groups 15/30 minutes apart.

My Setup

 

Why can I get to the "Adult's Only" area faster than I can get to the "ToDo" List?  DirecTV, that is messed up!!!

They have been advertising for new teams so hopefully we will get another season in Feb or something.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

I have to agree with ow the kid talks to his grandpa. I'm also surprised he makes his grandpa do so many of the physical challanges. His grandpa is really doing well for his age though.
