this show has always been my favorite reality show.
What is up with that movie star wanting to be on this show, or the reality team. Have they ever seen the Eco Challenge, i do not think so, or they would of never of joined up. Why spend 10 thousand dollars to put your body threw hell for up to 10 days. I think someone comes close to dieing this year, just like last year when somebody almost died.

I missed last nights episode. In the past they've always repeated the episodes over the weekend if you missed it the first time around, but I don't see it listed. Should of set up a Season Pass.

I love, love, love the Eco-Challenge. Looks like I've missed Monday and Tuesday. Can someone post when the plan on reairing all of the episodes? Is it still on USA?

I missed the last 45-mins of the last Challenge. I had to leave home and somehow the VCR programming got messed up. It was the very last showing too.

I cannot remember being so furious!!!!! I swear someone/something sabotaged my VCR. Let's hope we won't repeat this year.

Great race so far, I love how the Brazilian women ended up back at the checkpoint after such a long time.

I am pulling for Team Earthlink.

The military team needs to lose bad.

The egos on these people is absolutely horrific.

Egos? That's because 9 out of 10 people that have the money and time to enter the race have huge egos

When I win the lottery I'm so there!!!

Definitely the best, or most "real" reality show. Ever since I saw last year's, every now-and-then the show will pop into my mind and I'll wonder if it's coming on and I caught it just in time flipping through channels trying to find the Laker/Spurs game.

I've not watched the last episode yet... but ever since seeing Ian Adamson (last name?) from Team GoLite.. I have been so impressed with him. He is cool and calm. His team seems so professional with their approach. So I hope it was TeamGoLite who won.

Narration is pretty neat with the calm David Duchoveny? doing the "the Brazillian team doesn't know it but forthcoming they will lose a hand and come down with jungle fever" narration.

Overall a great show...wish it came on more frequently or twice a year instead of once.

I can't believe I missed this entire series. I had seen all of them so far. According to the Eco-Challenge website this year's episodes won't be available for purchase either, in fact they encourage people to tape it. Anybody hear anything about a potential weekend rerun? Or anything at all about how to get this year's episodes on tape?

I saw the finale only. This was pretty intense. only 10 teams completed the race, 70 others dropped out. I'm sure a race of this magnitude could not be held more then once a year.
