The Amazing Race 12 -- "Sorry, Guys, I'm Not Happy To See You" -- 01/13/08

"Sorry, Guys, I'm Not Happy to See You"
Spoiler:
The teams continue in the tenth leg of the race. With the final elimination looming, the gloves come off for all remaining teams. Jennifer states that hatred is in her team's blood. Teams maneuver viciously for strong flight placement.

First Aired: Sunday January 13, 2008

Hope TK and Rachel can make up their penalty and get back in the race.

Maybe the title refers to a team that misses a task?

Zuffy, maybe you should spoiler that just in case.

Hoping Ron and Christina can take the million.

The other two teams bore me to tears.

I was expecting some kind of penalty on TK & Rachel for taking their tea with them without finishing it first. But good riddance to Jen! There almost always has to be one highly annoying team that makes it this far.

I agree. TK and Rachel have been in this thing way too long.

Losing is bad enough, but having that extra shot at the end of Nate crying was great.

Good Lord, what whiny, selfish bitch! No wonder he cheated on her!
Is CBS Early Show still featuring the cast offs on Mondays?
I'll have to record it tomorrow and see if they're on and see if they're still together.
(she looks a lot like Elizabeth Hasselback from The View)

Is Jen really short, or is Nate really tall?

The debut of the "speed bumps" was unspectacular -- one with a yoga class, and then another running thru a field only to get doused by a bucket of water. BOOO!

Someone please tell me Nate's "Thai" comment was meant to be a joke.

Rooting for Ron/Christina or Nick/Don to win the final leg.

Lame Roadblock. I hate one-at-a-time Roadblocks and it was nothing but an amusement park ride.

Lame Speed Bump. Again, what's the point? Just give them the time penalty like you did before.

Lame Detour. Obvious choice, and not much of a challenge.

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Jen. Your drama will be missed in the finale. I actually like each of these teams but I'll root for Gramps and Grandson.

I'd rather have Jen and Nate in the finale instead of Nick and Donald, but oh well.

I'll be disappointed if TK and Rachel win because they've had a couple of times where they've basically given up--only to be saved by circumstances such as another team making a big mistake.

How about that greeter at the Pit Stop? Rowrrrr!

And there was the shot of Jen picking her ass at the roadblock.

Kint said that their yoga speed bump took an hour. It (along with their U-Turn blunder) was the major reason why they were eliminated. Who knows how long it took TK and Rachel to do that task.

For the first time that I can recall I like all three teams in the final 3.

TK and Rachel may not make for "good tv" like Nate and Jen, but I've seen enough of teams like Nate and Jen on the race. At least I don't have to listen to her voice next week. They have to be the favorites to win, and I would be very happy for them if they did.

Ron and Chris were one of my early favorites until Ron started in on his act. Either he's getting better or his editing is getting better...either way when they get along they are easy to root for, and based on past races they are an underdog team. I'd love to see them win and validate what she's been telling him. It's a lesson he needs.

I find it astonishing that Nick and Don are still in the race, but you have to give them credit. They've never been the fastest, but they've gone the whole race without making the big mistake. They are the supreme underdog team, but I think it would be great if they won. It would give that tattoo additional meaning as well.

It's nice not caring who wins in a good way.

Great Elim, those 2 were a total cancer and I loathed them. Dude was a pussy and she was a total bitch.

Too bad Hippie and little squeeky rat are still in it. Hippies piss me off.
