That's funny--they are my least favorite teams--for exactly the reasons you mention! To each his own!

I loved the first episode and can't wait until next week! It's too early to tell who I will be rooting for, but so far, I thought the father/daughter team were pretty cute (that girl is just SO excited about everything!) and I have a feeling the tattoo'd couple might grow on me... They're not very bright, but they seem sweet!

Until next week...

I will make sure I put "spoiler" in the thread name for safety! I know I just ignore clicking on the threads to shows I haven't watched yet until I'm ready to risk reading them!

Also, I would like to suggest that you put the word SPOILER in the title of each week's thread so that no one comes in without expecting to hear the loser, just in case.

I used to belong to a team that was incredibly rude about that and it just ruined my enjoyment of the show we were watching since I was often unable to watch it during broadcast. I would hate to ruin it for anyone else!

I immediately liked the gay guys, and I was surprised that I like the doctors, too. They weren't obnoxious. The HSC women also were much better than I was expecting--watermelon girl gets lots of points for being a great sport!

I think that the dating couples are my least favs right now. Interesting, too, that Chad is planning to propose during the race.

I think it was the tatoo'd couple that climbed the ladder, and then was asking everyone "are you a battlement?" when they were looking for the flag. That was so funny. I hope they stick around, I love hearing what they come out with.

Phil: "What country are you in?"
Tatoo girl: "London"
Phil: "The country of London, okay..."

My daughter's name is Victoria, her boyfriend's name is Nick. Both my Vicky and Nick are avid AR watchers and crinched at dumb moves of the AR V&N. They feel they'd have to go on the next AR to redeem their names. emoticon Unfortunately there are no Canadian players allowed. Loved the boat challenge, interesting to see how some coped so well and others didn't have a clue. And how each devised a different strategy.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," replied the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Oh boy - that was a great show. I could not believe how many of them got lost!!!! The 2 that wandered the grounds and the castle for hours - that was funny.
It looked to me like the tattoo couple didn't climb the ladder and get junk poured on them.....did I miss that part? For a while Ithought they skipped that and would be disqualified - but not so.
It is going to be fun getting to know these folks. By the end of the show, I always feel like they are people I've known forever......

Watermelon girl... appears it hit her on the cheek and not the nose, but I'm like you, surprised nothing was broken. She could have shattered her cheek too. She was LUCKY!

I also can not remember the guys names, but my mom and I were calling them The Wiz because they met doing that show. I watched their video on the CBS website. And they said they did the show in my city. I will have to look it up.

I can't believe that the Watermelon Girl didn't break her nose or something. It's amazing she didn't get knocked out!

************

I was surprised the eliminated team (can't think of their names) did so horribly with their navigation of the roads of London. That is totally what lost it for them. I too was hoping someone else would take much longer and they could pass them by and get another chance to do better.

Is it Chad that was blowing up so early on over his frustrations? Anyway...at least in the end he realized what he'd done and how it almost cost them the adventure so maybe he'll settle down now.

I love, love, love the doctor team!

And what about the slam in the face with that watermelon? She was definitely a good sport about it in how she didn't fall apart and quit even though she had to feel the effects of it later when the numbness wore off. And that she could laugh with her partner about "the watermelon incident" later on.

A lot of good teams this season! Can't wait for Sunday!

I do appreciate y'alls restraint and caution in not "announcing" which team was eliminated...but I had my DVR set but the football game still apparently ran over. I missed the last two teams checking in, so don't know who was eliminated. Can't wait to find out, though I have my suspicions, especialy since someone hinted that it wasn't Chad/Stephanie. I don't have any favorites yet, but I'm not feeling too warm and fuzzy towards Chad, I can tell you. They'd been racing what--five minutes? and already he was yelling at her and giving her grief?????

I had so hoped my cowboys could somehow come back. Maybe for the next AR All Stars. Oh my gravy, I still miss them.

Love the doctor team! And team Glee has my heart, even though I don't think they will go very far.

I was hoping that Chad/Stephanie would continue to wander the grounds, and let the team that got eliminated get in. Too bad, I enjoyed their brief part of the show.

Lil' Miss Kentucky is sure excited about absolutely everything. That is fun to watch!

Great episode last night!! I was LMAO at some of the teams. ("What country are you in? London!") Not the brightest bulbs... :)

ETA: I don't have favorites picked out quite yet, but I like the doctors and the biological mom/daughter so far.

Loved it!! My favorites so far: the doctors and the Asian father and son team.

A great season premier!

Interesting new twist. I was sad with who got eliminated.

My favorite quote was "Are you a battlement?"

Can't wait to watch! We got caught up on Survivor tonight (and Apprentice, since I was working and would prefer to watch AR when I can actually focus on it), so AR will just have to wait till tomorrow!

Remember--it is not starting at the usual time, depending on where you live. It seems to be going on a half hour later, and is a 90 minute show!

Can't wait! This is my fave reality show out there. It's more - well, REAL and less scripted for excess drama!

It's almost here! Remember this first episode at least is 90 minutes long. And as some of us watch it on tape, please be sure to include emoticon if your post has spoilers if it is written before mid-morning of the following day. Thank you!
