Obviously a Jordan quote.

Am I the only one having a hard time figuring out which one of the brothers is gay?

Really do not like the dykes. The grandaughter was cute.

The Big Brother girl seems dumber than the beauty queen.

Kinda pulling for the cowboys. They seem alright.

Is anyone surprised that the guys who do drug raids got the wrong address?

I'm surprised that nobody got tripped up on what a "baker's dozen" was.

I agree about the granddaughter, but I'm glad they were eliminated. They weren't even trying, either one of them. Plus, they were getting the "we're going home" edit tonight.

Jordan is really, really dumb. Anyone who watched BB last summer could tell you that. It's actually an embarrassment to the show that she won. But her winning was better than Natalie winning so....eh.

I don't know if I would have withheld info to the other teams like they did. It's awful early in the race. Still, it at least appears that the two teams didn't catch on. They aren't the two rocket scientist teams. I guess the beauty queen team needs to write DETAILS on their hands in more permanent ink.

I'm not sure the cowboys have any exposure on that one. Unless I wasn't paying attention closely, as far as everyone else knows, they had no clue about the other station. If confronted, they just need to play dumb and not talk about it.

I don't think granny was aware she was in a race. And way to insult your other grandkids.

Having trouble rooting for any of these teams.

It cracked me up when the grandma/daughter team said something like, "let's slow down".

Slow down! Any slower and they would have been moving backwards. Really was hoping the detectives would go though. They suck.

I'm just amazed that the Detectives can drive 20 miles past the roadblock and still be in the race.

I'm starting to like the cowboys. I was amused when they were leaving the Kuchen roadblock and he was asking if he had tasted some of the Kuchen and the other one smiled and wiped his mouth

Go ahead, have a piece of pie, Grandma. YOU JUST LOST. It's not like you're in a hurry or anything.

What is it with these idiots that get on this show that's a RACE and continue to stop and smell the roses. Ooh, we're going here, we're going there. STFU and RACE! It's NOT a VACATION!

What was the point of even casting the grandma team? They didn't even seem to care that they were in the race. As for the lesbians, they come off as miserable human beings. I guess at this point I'm rooting for the cowboys.

This is the first time I've watched this show in years. Has the casting always been this bad?

There are moments when I appreciate teams taking the time to actually enjoy the race. The Globetrotters were really good at that last year. There is a difference between enjoying the race and not racing.

It was like they decided they weren't going to win so why even try. If we advance..we advance.

Phil told the cops "you are the ninth team to arrive" instead of "you are team #9" which I've always believe meant they had to sit out a penalty. Did anyone else notice this? What happened?

Nice attention to detail detectives!

Not a surprise the oldest competitor is gone, although it did seem like they lost a lot the time by being on a bus by themselves, that and being slow.

I was thinking they're all going to start stealing from her now since they know who's probably going to get everything. They were probably smiling when she got kicked in the head

The father/daughter team was almost completely ignored this episode.

I like the Cowboys so far. It's not like they lied to the other teams, they just didn't tell them what was going on and the other teams never bothered to ask them what bus they were on anyway.

I really hope the lesbians go home soon.

I notced. I kept waiting for Phil to announce the penalty to make things more interesting, but I guess they had what they needed. Granny must have taken a long time with the road block.

Okay, I've done a 180 from last week and love this season now. It's all because of Jet and Cord. If they don't make it to the final three, oh my gravy will I be pissed.

I was so glad when Joe the Jerk-off got kicked in the junk by the llama. I haven't disliked an alliance (the Joe & Heidi and Carol & Brandy alliance) this much since the backpack.

Especially since they kept showing it; which is usually done as "foreboding" in these situations.

They forgot to cast the team of hotties who will 'Use our looks to win the race'. I think this is the first time in a long time that's happened.

Unless the lesbians are supposed to be team hottie. If so, someone needs to be fired.

Even though it didn't work out for them, I thought it was smart for those two teams thinking of taking another bus instead of sitting at that one bus station for 9 hours.
