Phil Keoghan (@philkeoghan)
is the host.

For those of you who missed the news, the show was renewed for a 30th season. But, it won't air until midseason. Most likely sometime in 2018.

So out of the first nine episodes this season, three were non-elimination (no drama) and three were double u-turns used in such a way that there was little doubt of the outcome (no drama). Only three of the first nine episodes had meaningful final moments. I liked having strangers paired as teams this season, but they need to stop the over reliance on gimmicked legs.

Ouch, a brutal and heat exhausting leg in Vietnam. But it did provide for some SOLID entertainment (all the arguing and complaining)

London and Logan still alive!

And damn you CBS for the commercial about the upcoming 2nd hour. Spoilers! You showed a few teams still in the race, which killed the suspension of the first hour leg.

I didn't think I'd see a person worse than Hayley (blind date nurse from season 26) to be partnered, but I think Brooke has easily moved to the top of my list. Or, is that bottom of my list?

Tough to see team fun go from last to first to last again. I don't think that is the first time teams had trouble with the heat and humidity in Viet Nam.

I kept thinking: Could you imagine being the poor guy who somehow ended up married to this woman?

Though Scott is a more entertaining partner for that sort of player, giving her snark and sass. While Blair just stoically took it.

That was brutal ... poor Floyd Props to Becca for being positive and supportive until the end. She's like the anti-Brooke. And she shouldered part of the blame since she knew she should've done the biking challenge.

I liked their finishing song: "Becca and Floyd are winning this race! Standing at the finish line in first ... err ... uh .... well, waving at the winners."

I missed the previews for next week. Is it the finale?

I'm quite relieved to see Team "fun" gone. Brooke and Scott are slightly worse imo, but to me they both are just grating as hell.

Sad to see Team Fun go, they were great. Really hoped they'd make it to the finale and win.

That was a brutal leg, hard to believe Floyd make that long trip twice.

No, not the finale.

The thing that Hayley had that I haven't really seen from Brooke was that absent all the yelling she actually brought skills to them as a racing team (final leg aside). Strange as it may sound, she and Blair remained friends after the race.
