OMG!!! I can't believe how the race turned out.
Exact opposite order I expected for the final 3.
What did you think?

I won't say more - in case you haven't seen it yet.

I'm Team Corey and Tyler. I like the mom/son team more than I did but if they win, it will be one of those fluke wins, not because they played the race well overall, and I dislike those. They have had major lucky breaks to get this far.

I would love it if the mom team won I did not think they make it to the finals but they been playing better. The mom picked up on how to ride that unicycle faster than her son.

Dana & ? had pretty much zero chance of not making the top 3 when the boys partnered up with them. Wouldn't it be fun to see the mom/son team actually win at this point as the boys are so sure about their taking it all easily? In the beginning I didn't like the mom very much, but with time I've seen her become less combative with her son and they truly are having a blast. I loved his attitude last night... I just know we're not done as they were driving to the pit stop.

I was hoping the same team would go instead Barbara. She just gets ugly under stress! I was NOT happy with the guys going home. Just bad luck, but strategic moves on the U-Turn board for sure.

With who is left I will go with Corey and Tyler for the win, but it will probably be the #2 team finally getting 1st when it matters.

Yeah....those challenges weren't very exciting. I don't think I would have liked jumping off that 4 story drop though!

They haven't been in first that many times, at all. Corey and Tyler are my favs by a long shot. They have a great attitude, they are enjoying the race, and they are good at it. I so wanted the couple to be gone--Dana with the long dark hair, who is just nasty constantly, and had that horrid ,eltdown.

Just watched the race and it was kind of boring - because the same team was still in first place, the 2 guys I like the best got a U-turn and then it was a given what would happen.
I didn't even think the challenges were that interesting tonight.
But, we are now in the race for the final and I assume that 1 team will be eliminated during the next segment and the finale will be 3 teams doing the battle.
I don't care too much for the 2 guys in first place - because they have been in that position for so long - it is getting "old."

What did you think????

I was okay with the elim too, but totally impressed with the boy and his mom for making up as much time as they did! Wow! I didn't want those two guys to be eliminated (the ones who are usually in the top) so was glad they squeaked a stay out of that leg!

And yuck....a snake! Ugh!!!!!

Watched tonight and can say I was not disappointed with who was sent home - how about you?? (Zack and Rachel - the newlyweds)
But I was hoping that the bickering couple from last week would be elim. though....
Some of the tasks were really difficult.
I would never wear a snake around my neck - yuck!!!!
I don't think I could have done the kite flying successfully either. Whew!

I enjoyed watching the camals race. That one girl was getting on my nerves not only would she not get in the car but she was mad because she was hot and her boyfriend was not. Those bathing suits were something.

That's the one. And I agree that the heat and stress of the race factored in, but everyone was under the same conditions and she was the only one who acted like a 2 year old. And it was consistent with her previous behavior. I just really dislike it when people behave so badly.

Is she the one that had the meltdown and wouldn't get back in the car? I do think some of that for her could have been dehydration and fatigue from the camel walk, but yeah... very childish behavior.

That camel race seemed as though it would be undoable.

Those bathing suits!! AAgh! The mom sure was happy to wear it though--she was totally flaunting it.

And I've never been fond of the Dana and Matt (I think that's their names) but last night made it official that I want her gone. She was just miserable.

I agree about the heat! I kept thinking they should have supplied the walkers in the desert with a canteen. And to race those camels.....yikes! I was amazed how many actually did beat them, but of course it was after they got the head start.

That mom/son just don't leave! I may not have a favorite, but they are my least favorites at this moment.

How'd you like those gold swim "nothing" suits? Ugh!!!!

There were more physically difficult challenges tonight. I could have never done the bicycle race against the camels.
The heat seemed to get to all the racers and could have added to the melt-downs.

Once again the Mom and Son came in last......but.....
everyone had a hard time driving around Dubai.

I felt the same about the last two teams, but it was fun having such a close race to the end! If they hadn't had to take the backpack back inside they would have had it.

That dancing challenge looked so hard! I was amazed how well most of them do, but it would be fun to know how much time elapsed for training and attempts.

Still no favorite!

Just watched the race.... those were some difficult challenges.
I was bummed at the end and would have really liked the last 2 teams to have been the opposite.
I really liked the Doc and Daughter. If he only had not been so polite in returning the
bag.... it would have turned out. (He could have had his daughter run faster back into the bldg to return the bag???)
I thought that dancing routine looked impossible and they all injured their hands threading hazelnuts!!!

Wasn't Armenia just beautiful? I don't know that I've ever really seen photos of it before.

Still can't believe how difficult the tasks are this season. Those rugs were gorgeous! Loved all the back and forth of the teams and was fun that the end was just another clue and the race continued. We'll see if those two can make up any more time.

The alps were so beautiful! I would have loved the gondola ride, but I can't imagine the tethered hike along the ridges! I think the air gliding would be fun too other than falling face first into the snow while taking off. The take off was really was a game changer. I thought it might be a non-elimination leg for that very reason.

Looks like we head from the cold snow to the warm sand next week!

I will have to look for that, Janet. All their packs look big to me.

The boys were nice enough but they deserved to go. In the first episode, they talked about how they felt they could do well because they are smart and their mother went to Harvard! Yet, they consistently goofed up.

It was another great episode! I was sad to see the boys go home, but they made too many mistakes. I know they weren't the best racers, but I enjoyed them.

I too like that Phil is around more often during the challenges. Looks like they are heading to Switzerland (maybe) next. Beautiful mountains and snow....

Can't remember the name of the girl, but goodness her pack is huge! I couldn't believe her partner carried it along with his own. What all did she need to pack for the race? LOL

Where did everyone go?

I like the way Phil is doing more intro on the challenges!!

And--I am finding all of these people so annoying!!! They scream constantly!!

I just assumed the recorder would take care of it as it knew the first time! LOL I will double check the recorder this week....

We watched last night online and enjoyed it very much. I was glad the boys weren't eliminated (they are sweet) and the last place team sure made up a lot of time to come in 9th (I think it was that place.).

Each team had to set up their shelter next to one already there, as an example.

I don't know why I had forgotten that the first leg was non-elimination--I had happily eliminated the father-daughter. I find her quite annoying. But the team that went this week might be worse.

is it just me but they do not seem to be explaining the challenges they just let you have to guess what they teams are doing. for example that shelter they were putting up did they have an example to follow. I know one of the teams read the clue again and had to move it.

Barbara, I agree. But I don't know them yet.
At first glance (the first leg of the race), they do all seem alike.
It will be fun to see them evolve.

I agree that was different--it was the contestants who are all the same.

I thought it was "different" to have all the teams representing some online presence. Don't hate it, but it's different.

I was not enthused about the whole internet theme. They are all the same-- and they are all loud! The screaming got to me.

I'm being a crab, but I sure hope that some of them start showing some personality.

I enjoyed the first leg and like that it was non-elim.
I'll be on vacation for the next 3 weeks - so I'll try to record (but there are so many shows that I want to record and I don't know if I have room.....
I know I can watch the episodes on the computer when I get home.....

Loved the start being completely different AND they finally did as I've asked all along...no elimination on the first leg because they are all just getting things figured out.

Most annoying to me right off is the mom and son. (The one who cried so much before they left their house.)

I enjoyed it no favorites yet I like they did the beginning a little different. The band task was the funniest because people had to put their ear up to the trumpets to see if someone was really playing.
