4/17 Amazing Race

Well, noone got eliminted this round, but the next round IS a elimination round.

Next Week on THE AMAZING RACE:
Spoiler:
* It's a battle between woman and man when Tara takes on Chris in the Roadblock challenge involving operating enormous container-port cranes. One wrong move could bring a massive steel container--and any hope of winning--crashing to the ground.
* A re-energized Danny & Oswald, eager to avoid the "drama" of the other Teams, choose a course that takes them far away. Will it help them or lead to disaster?
* Gary blows up at Dave, while Mary brings a smile back to her exhausted sister Peach's face.

Woody had the best line of the season yet:

"Peach couldn't kill anything except maybe a pink margarita."


Hahahahaha

Man, its getting tough to guess now. All the teams that are left are really strong I think.

Loved the 'Itchy and Scratchy' commentary on the other teams. Those guys crack me up.

I loved Itchy's comment about the Boston Boys not being in their element. What with no toga parties or drunken women around, pure genius.

Oh and for you all that hate Wil so much for being arrogant and cocky, the same thing can be said about the Boston team. I dislike Wil because of his abrasive personality, not his determination to win.

I gotta agree on that -- Wil is a jerk but he's a better team-mate than Tara who's more interested in dating than racing. It's sad but she's seems to be attracted to jackasses. The Boston team really are arrogant and cocky.

I wouldn't mind team Cha-Cha-Cha getting booted-booted-booted. Does that guy realize what a stuck-up putz he sounds like when he keeps saying stuff about "last time I was here I was being driven around in a Jaguar..." or something like "from now on I will only stay at five-star hotels...they are worth every star...?"

Go Mary & Peach and Dave & Gary.

I still want Blake & Paige to win, but dont really care. As long as the Frat Boys dont win, I'm happy. I just dont want the first two Amazing Races to end with "privileged white guys" as the winners.

Dang.... only 30 minutes difference between the first and last place teams departing from the pit stop. That's close. Yet, we have the Airport equalizer.

Will post more at end of episode.

and total arrogance on their part.

They kept telling that cab driver "center" and insisted on going to "center". I'm glad they're out because I really got sick of Peach's constant whining.

I cant believe that with all that misdirections and running around in HK, why Mary and Peach just didnt do the "Wishing Tree" challenge, just throw yourself in a cab and throw a piece of paper into a tree, sounds much easier than trying to find some lady and drinking some narly ass tea.

Was it arrogance, or just stupidity? First, they lose the map. Second, they forget where they're going... which is pretty darn important in a RACE.

I can't believe it... the Fruit hang-glides, survives a cave of bats, escapes South Africa without getting killed... only to be felled by a cup of tea.

Why couldn't she have cheesed out earlier? Maybe then, Doublemint would still be in. I love those guys.

Must be the cumulative effect of all those stunts that got her down. She was exhausted and hungry.

Wil needs to learn a lesson and therefore should not win.

The Cha-cha-chas go on a shopping spree next week.

Boy, it makes me miss Hong Kong.

On the final episode will they be able to use the fast foward. If so, whom ever will get the fast foward will win the game. So that will be boring.
