Shocker of an elimination. Didn't see that one coming even during their troubles.

Well, there was foreshadowing at the beginning when they talked about how they would need their brains to win.

Can't say I'll miss them. Hopefully Chuck and Jaba The Crybaby go next.

We could have had Joey or Max and Katie gone.

The blondes couldn't talk their way out of a speeding ticket?

I'm betting the producers gave the local fuzz a heads up.

i am sure if there were no cameras, he would have let them pay the fine right there, in American dollars, right into his pocket.

Another season, another failed prediction of who I thought would win

Anyone know what kind of Ford SUVs they were using to drive around Botswana? We are usually overwhelmed by vehicle advertisements by Ford, and this time I actually wanted to know what the vehicle was. Looked like a Landcruiser or Land Rover, but definitely saw Ford badges.

it's not a land cruiser, since it's own by Toyota. It's definetly a ford SUV that was used in Botswana.

I was sort of surprised that Max and Katie didn't get some kind of penalty for denting their SUV.

I remember a few seasons back they gave one team a 15 minute penalty for losing a paintbrush.

I really like Chuck but man....his wife has to be one of the laziest and most complaining contestants ever.

As for this elimination I was actually shocked. I really thought they were gearing up to make a run at the whole thing.

The paintbrush was required for a task, the car is just transportation.

Racers have gotten into accidents in vehicles before, ones they drive and ones they ride. How they overcome these is essentially the penalty itself especially those involviing other drivers.

I am wondering how many attempts they made before they decided to switch back to the donkey?

I still can figure out what the last animal was? Looked like a bird on top of a hippo? Why make it so complicated?

Clearly the producers told them about the cop situation because they were all trying to slow down in that area and they never show the couples being concerned about speeding.

That was the point. To trip teams up from an otherwise simple task. Notice they didn't have a hippo in the tile selection (a similar looking rhino instead). You were supposed to pick the bird.

That team was really hurt by being unable to tell a hippo apart from a rhino.

Transporting all of the materials to the painting site was one of the required elements of the task. When the team lost a paintbrush, they failed to complete the task correctly.

I saw they missed it the first time but I didn't know they missed it each additional time.

What you linked to looks more like the new Explorer. But I found it, after searching for "ford suv botswana"

Looks like it is called the Ford Everest...but some pics I found call it the Ford Endeavour. Either way, the model in these pics definitely favors the looks of a Toyota, imo. I like it.

Did not expect Pam and Winnie to get eliminated so soon.

Luckily Caroline and Jen are really attractive blondes and they got a nice guy to help out with the currency exchange. But IMO, the racers need to take a few minutes before they make a mad dash out of he airport and change their money.
