The Amazing Race 9 -- 5/3/2006


How the hell are Ray & Yolanda still in this?
Better yet, which team will falter enough to allow Ray & Yolanda to sneak by once again? They're this season's Meredith & Gretchen more than Fran & Barry ever were.

Four teams left? Don't they usually do a two-hour season finale in which one team is eliminated at the end of the first hour, then the remaining three teams race to the finish?

If that's the case again, no one gets eliminated this week.

MoJo has been flirting with a full-blown meltdown for weeks now.

There's a clip on comcast.net's Fan showing Eric/Jeremy pulling a taxi trick on the other teams - good idea, surprised this hasn't been done on previous races!

Don't have to be a comcast subscriber to view.

I think you're right.

Spoiler:
The Early Show description for tomorrow morning states "latest AR castoff". It doesn't say that following non-elim legs.

Good Morning America is ABC, ain't it?

Most likely a non-elim round since it is the 10th pitstop but I voted for Ray and Yolanda anyway!

At this point in the race it is usually just luck that determines the placing. Each team has proven capable, so I am just going to pick the team I dislike the most: MoJo.

MoJo is toooo funny. Calling the hippies sleazeballs for yielding anybody...they were going to do the same thing if they got their asses out of the car and to the yield first.

Wow, the hippies luck out AGAIN. Which one of the morons decided to take a "shortcut" and give MoJo 3rd place?!?

MoJo...wow...talk about hypocrites.

I was hoping Monica would have been eaten by the crocs. I really HATE MoJo, especially Mo. It seems everything she complains about the hippies, she does even more.

I like how they panned over with the camera to the big crocs but in the actual area where they had to go were a few tiny little ones

Someone please explain to me the reason of having a "yield" right before a non-elimination leg. So freaking pointless.

I generally agree, and this isn't the first time they have done that, but I think it was worth it just because of how mad it made MoJo.

My wife and I have only watched about half this season, but did those two tasks seem incredibly uneven to any one else? It seemed that one took a total of 15 minutes, while the other an hour plus.

I think your estimate of timing is just about exactly on since the hippies should have been an hour ahead of MoJo due to the yield, and both teams ended the challenges dead even. That choice has always been a part of the game, and I feel it is at its best when one task is better than the other.
