    Public transportation is generally reliable and safe. The preferred option for travel within Buenos Aires and other major cities is by radio taxi or "remise" (private car with driver). The best way to obtain taxis and remises is to call for one or go to an established stand, before hailing one on the street. Hotels, restaurants and other businesses can order remises or radio taxis, or private phone numbers for such services upon request. Passengers on buses, trains, and the subway should be alert for pickpockets and should also be aware that these forms of transport are sometimes affected by strikes or work stoppages.

    On the next episode of The Amazing Race:
    [size=+2]Who Says Pageant Girls Don't Eat?[/size]
    • The teams travel throughout Argentina during the race's third leg.
    • A rivalry is born when one Team rudely interrupts another while trying to get travel information.
    • Several Teams decide to work together, but after getting ahead, one duo becomes impatient with the group and slips away. Will they get ahead? How will the group react when they realize they've been ditched?
    • Thanks to the stubbornness of Lance, who insists on taking advice from some clueless locals, he & Marshall get lost and wander aimlessly in the freezing cold.
    • After taking the lead over other Teams, one duo is stopped cold when faced with the task of eating a daunting amount of caviar. A Team member is reduced to tears, convinced that finishing the task will be impossible. Will they go from first to last?

    I think its safe to say the roadblock wasn't the Russian Beluga 000 Malossol Caviar ;)

    Does CBS have a repeat of the show? I had dish fade as the teams were boarding airlines and lost everything between the first flight taking off and Charla/Mirna blocking pucks.

    Yes, CBS has been repeating the episode on Saturday nights (very cool). Hopefully, my synopsis didn't spoil things too much.

    I wonder if Mirna is the new hockey team mascot. After all, they were probably only told "Some Americans will be arriving here for a TV show. Both of them will be blocking goal. Take your best slapshot." and didn't even notice the small-sized jersey. :D Both she and Charla have been doing quite well in the race, and Mirna is kinda like a kid in tackling these challanges.

    Nope. I'm immune to spoilers. ;) Have to look at them anyway to score the game.

    I pretty much figured out the order folks arrived flightwise based on when they got to the caviar place.

    According to the overnight ratings, The Amazing Race got a 6.1, beating out Law & Order: Special Victims Unit which got a 5.9.

    Big Brother got a 5.6 rating.

    Mirna is totally useless in my opinion. She is rude and has yet to do one of the challenges. When she threw that slab of beef on Charla's back and yelled at her to keep going, that was priceless :lol:.

    I would agree. They are definitely in the race being the antagonist as well as the comic relief. I have no idea how Mirna ever passed the bar.

    That's hilarious. I might try to add a caption next week. I didn't know that was available.

    BTW, according to last week's ratings:

    1. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CBS, 8.7/15
    7. Amazing Race: 5, CBS, 6.2/10

    Big Brother is apparently finishing just outside the top 10.
