    So IMO this was possibly one of the best premiers of the AR ever. There was at least three challenging things on day 1. The first being driving a stick shift in a car where everything is on the opposite side you'd be used to, including the traffic being on the "wrong" side of the road, I can drive a stick but I think that would throw me for a bit of loop. Ok the climbing the ladder while being doused no biggie there, unless you don't know what a flag on a battlement looks like once you get to the top :lol:. But those boats were tricky and the whole whole watermelon slinging challenge was no cupcake either, obviously worse for some than others. I even have a team to root for, my brother-in-law does work for the husband of the woman who's running with her daughter that she gave up for adoption (Andie & Jenna). Of course last nights effort doesn't give me confidence they'll be around long, but hey ya never know.

    It was also the debut of probably the stupidest team ever on AR. Never heard of Stonehenge? Thought London was a country? The Battlement fiasco? I'm sure there were others too.

    Without a doubt. WOW!

    And what is the deal with getting lost, knowing your lost and you keep driving what turned out to be the wrong way? If you think you are lost, stop, find out where you are and regroup. Don't drive another 30 minutes or longer the wrong way.:nono2:

    Oh, come one, they arent't that dumb - he at least thought to ask all the "battlemen" about a flag. :D :lol:

    I love how they said that they knew everyone would stereotype them because of the tatoos and then exceeded what anyone would have ever thought. :)

    Also, speaking of stereotypes, Notre Douche guy did great keeping that one up.

    Yeah, I can see losing a few teeth or getting a broken nose on that one.

    Though I wonder if that was editing, her partner telling her to put it "right in the kisser" of the dummy, then getting it in her own.

    I just wish they'd go HD.

    Yeah it's pretty unbelievable they won't pony up the cash to film it in HD, I can understand some of the in cars or on person cams being SD, but for all the scenery and landscapes they visit it's inexcusable. (by me anywho)
