Well one more week of watching it on CBS and then I can watch it on CTV and not have to worry about
it being delayed due to other sports/events. Next week, I'll be able to watch it an hour earlier as CTV is
showing it at 7:00 pm ET because they are joining ABCs coverage of the Oscars at 8:00 pm ET. (Guess
no love for Barbara Walters in Canada eh?) I could even watch it at 7:00 pm ET on CTV and then watch
it again at 8:00 pm ET on CBS. LOL! Don't worry I won't come on at 8:00 pm ET and post who was
Phil-liminated. Due to the fact, I'll be watching a local hockey game at the time (Go Sabres!) I won't get
to watch the episode until later that evening (past 10:00 pm ET) or sometime the next morning.

LB...

There are little to no risk of delays for the next 3 Sundays.

Thats good to hear - still will probably watch via CTV, sorta loyal to them because a year and
a half ago, my local CBS station was one of those that was blacked out for a couple of weeks
due to problems between them and the cable company. CTV jumped in and instead of blacking
it out - like they were allowed to do - they said lets help out the people across the border and
they not only showed the Amazing Race/couple of other CBS programs but also a couple of Bills
football games. (You may LOL, but at the time we were a decent team, in the running to do good
damage. Unfortunately once the local blackout was lifted - everything went downhill.)

Did the instructions not say that they were using fake horses? It seems like that would be a pretty important piece of information with which to base your decision on.

THe cowboys were pretty amusing this week. They're becoming my favorite team to watch.

And Joe seems like an idiot.

I am going to start root for the cowboys. They are a fun team. Can't wait for the gay brothers, the detectives and the lesbo teams to be gone.

The only 2 teams I can say that I really like are the cowboys and the baseball coach/daughter.

The rest of the teams are lucky this is set-up to keep the teams close together otherwise the cowboys would win this thing by days.

Agreed the cowboys are smart.

Love how they pulled over when everyone was following them..

And how the lesbians thought the lassoo challenge was unfair!

Another physical challenge eliminates an all woman team, tho at least both challenges this time weren't physical. Sorry not to see the brothers, detectives or lesbians go.

I'm rooting for the cowboys. I couldn't care less about the other teams.

I don't think I had seen the 2nd team that had checked in before in any of the eps. I saw them check in and said to myself "who the fuck are they?"

I don't have any sympathy this time. They chose to do it, and there was a non-physical alternative. The problem last time was that both halves of the detour had options that the female team was physcially unable to perform.

With regards to the gay bros, are they BOTH gays or is one still closeted?

Cowboys are by far my favorites, and I was prepared to hate them... I love how they say "detour". Cracks me up every time.

I was about to be impressed with how quickly Big Brother did the loot detour, and then they kept going back to the wrong guy for the clue... Still, they don't annoy me as much as I thought they would.

Hard to have much opinion of the coach/daughter, since they never really show them. The models I also don't hate. Pretty much everyone else I can't stand.

That's team Rosie Ruiz.

And the guys with the funny hats on, are they cowboys or something? I don't remember anyone mentioning it.

I didn't understand why the models didn't tear their ticket and THEN go to the hospital. Is there a rule that says once they start racing, they can't stop for a hospital visit? Seems that would have been much smarter than backtracking back to the starting point.

The clue would have to say "Contract Food Poisoning and Proceed to the Nearest Hospital......on foot."

I wondered that too. I figured they wanted to go to the hospital prior to their start time, and they couldn't open the clue until their designated start time.

From my understanding, they went to the hospital before their start time.

Yes, the information blurb said it was 10 minutes before scheduled departure time as they were walking in the doors to the emergency room.

Also, I have never seen Big Brother, but I think Jordan (the girl) is just the cutest thing ever.
