There hasn't been any non-elimination yet, so I'm guessing this week's will be one.

It's a cop-out to vote "Non-Elim" so I voted for the team I think will come in last: Paolo.

It has to be non-elimination.

Spoiler:
I'm betting the Paolo's finish first since they're doing the fast foward on that crane.

What's the record for coming in second-to-last place? The Gaghans are almost as amazing as Gretchen and Meredith the way they keep avoiding last place!

And that pitcher was the crappiest fielder I have EVER SEEN!

About time this show got back to being The Amazing Race...best episode of the season by far.

Momma Gaghan taking a header into the back of that bus/van almost had me in tears I was laughing so hard.

And I'm actually starting to be a fan of the Paolo's. They sure bitch at each other alot..but at the end of the day they certainly love each other.

Decent episode.

at the guy driving the boat turning around to pick up somebody else, and the family getting pissed


to "professional" little league players letting balls go through there legs and missing throws to the plate, I mean come on, can you make it any more obvious that they are intentionally missing to not make the families feel bad, IMO kind of cheesy.

This show babies these families WAYYYY too much. If you can't hack it you don't need to be on the show, wack.

Yes, much better than the rest of the series so far. Thank God they finally got out of the U.S.

Seeing how ridiculous the Godlewski's looked with all their clothing on made me wish even more that Brian & Greg from last season had been non-eliminated on their elimination leg.

I don't understand why a FF would be an event where you have no chance to complete the task before another team. I know this isn't unique to the "Family Edition", but it still really bugs me.

It seems the only time there was really a "race" to get a FF was in Season 1.

"This is a pimp bus, man!!" <-- Best line of the year so far.

This episode was weak as hell. The way these FF's are set up is horrible. While the Paolo dipshit is cowering, the other family should have had the chance to suit up and jump first. It shouldn't be "first come has all day to get up the courage to do it." It should be "the first to actually jump wins." BS.

The baseball was the weakest task ever on TAR. First, they didn't have to actually get a hit, it appears they just had to make contact. Second, it appeared to be 3 pitches per at-bat, regardless of whether or not they were balls or strikes, which is stupid.

I loved the Weavers getting a little test of their own medicine when the siblings were bagging on them.
