Chad was a douche, so glad to see him go.

Me too. I'm SO glad one of the women teams didn't get knocked out. They're really impressive lately.

Yay for trash talking! Not as good as the Globetrotters but I wish there was more of it during the race.

The first team probably has close to a 7 hour lead on the back of the pack. That's going to be one heck of a bunch up point.

Very competitive leg. I would have liked to have seen how really close Brook/Claire and Chad/Stephanie were in those final moments. One thing that surprised me was why the hell those 2 teams chose to run to the pit stop. It was still sun light when they finished the rickshaw challenge and it must have taken them a really long time to run to the Pit stop since it was dark.

Personally I'm rooting for either Nat/Kat or Brook/Claire to take it. Brook and Claire were reallly impressive and rocked the house doing the UTurn. Brook to me as presented by the show seems like a really cool chick you would want to have a beer with and bullshit with. I know a really cool chick at work that has almost the same personality.

Good episode. I'm rooting for Nat/Kat or Brook/Clair to win. Glad to see Chad get the boot.

I was glad to see Chad and Chadette get the boot, too. Now just one more annoying yuppie couple to go...

Also hope that either Nat and Kate or Brooke and Claire take it.

Though I wouldn't mind if Nick and Vicki won, either. They may argue all of the time, and aren't the sharpest tacks in the box, but they've stuck it out and made it to the final four against the odds.

Am I the only one here that can't stand Brooke and Claire?

The blonde one is extremely annoying. She never shuts her fucking mouth and talks like a teenager. The other is OK.

I know it's just a matter of opinion, but I don't find her annoying at all. She's a little perky that's for sure, but I think the show presents her as a cool, likeable chick.

Nope. I couldn't stand them from the very first episode and have been hoping they would get booted every week since. Unfortunately they are still around. I like the doctors between who is left.

This is my sentiment as well. There's perky and there's that blonde chick. She just comes across vapid and aloof. Though I guess I can see how she can come across endearing to some people.

Man, Jill and Thomas really had the Colin and Christie vibe going in this episode. Too bad for them they're not nearly as awesome.

I laughed hard at Nick's "doublé" U-Turn.

Also, did Jill and Thomas just join the Race this leg (sarcasm)? I really have no idea who they are. Even now I can't picture them.

I refer to them as the couple that I don't know.

Like 2 weeks ago I saw them and had no idea who they were. And the only reason I know who you're talking about is because I don't recognize those names and I know the other couples names.

I disagree. I'm amazed at how optimistic she has been through this race despite anything that comes against her. She seems very intelligent and fun to me.

Just caught up to last week. Am I glad Brook and Claire survived this race. I can't believe the dumb team is still in the race.
