She shoulda made him do the pole vault since he's so damn smart.

Not a big surprise on the elimination.

And hence the title of the episode. Seriously, at least he admitted it at the end, but the guy is sort of a massive ass.

Literally, when Ronald opened his mouth to speak, my whole body cringed.

Ronald sucks.

Myself and my wife cracked up at Kynt's comments at the jumping challenge when he thought that the sheep was involved.

I wonder who everyone is going to hate now.

Also I don't think that Ronald knows the meaning of all of those big words that he throws around.

Kent had Vixen pushing him on the bicycle at the end. What a pussy.

I can't believe the grandson let gramps do the pole vault. Stupid move.

Oh yeah, and Ronald is a dick.

I can't believe I had to see that muddy, old man in his underwear. And french cut underwear, by the looks of it.

I loved this episode! Lots of funny moments and also team conflict.

We had:

Ronald being a MASSIVE tool (I just want to hug Christina)

Pole-vaulting across muddy ditches

Granddad stripping down to his briefs (Nicolas: "I have no comment")

Jennifer: speaking of one of the blondes, "...that little bitch made it across." (Umm...Jennifer? YOU are the only bitch I see. Well, you and your boyfriend Nathan.)

Vyxen: (shrugging) "I used to do macrame." (laughed my ass off at her delivery)

Kynt: "I think this challenge involves sheep... I'll do it." (TAR editors are the best!)

And a lesbian kiss to top it all off!


Next week looks great, too. "There's no more MILK!"

Christina's dad reminds me of the Eddie Murphy character (Mr. Wong) in Norbit.

I liked the comment the ministers made at the begining of the episode -- something like "God doesn't reall care who wins the Amazing Race." It was refreshing to see a religious team that doesn't seem to think that God is the secret third member of their team. I'm not surprised to see them eliminated, but I am a little sad.

Agree with this 1000% I was very impressed with their attitude. Loved it.
Sad to see them go, but it was inevitable.

No idea what was up with Ronald, esp at the airport when he was telling Nick to be nicer to the Agent. STFU. If Nick is a jerk then you have more chance of being put on the plance..

Jagass.

Liked how in most cases the girls pulled all the weight in this ep.

Wow.. I have relatives like Ronald. Christina needs to stop and tell him he's full of shit in not so nice terms instead of being a Joy Luck Club daughter.

Man, I wanted to like Ron and Christina, but he was such a dick in this episode and talked down to her the entire time which really pissed me off. He was trying to act all philosophical and I wanted to scream. I like Christina, but her Dad needs to be kicked in the balls.

I didn't need to see Gramps in his black underpants...

The Lesbian ministers are no loss to the competition. Goodbye.

My DVR apparently needed to be re-booted (CBS was in black for 3 1/2 hours) and it didn't record this, Cold Case and Shark. Once I re-booted it after I got home from work, CBS was back online.....I was freaking out about missing tonight's episode since it's not on CBS' web site. I had to watch this through alternative means. I'll probably catch Shark on CBS.com.
