Stupid to have big hair try to twirl that thing.

Quite a contrast between wide open Scotland last week and tight quarters in Marrakesh this week.

I feel like they will regret not U-turning the dentists now. Even if they have the save they would most likely be forced to use it and another team would be eliminated anyway. Now they still have it and another team was gone in the end.

In addition to his unnatural-looking teeth, the dentist sure has creepy eyes. They look like they're going to bug out of his head sometimes!

My rule for the U-Turn....U-Turn a team you are absolutely sure is behind you. Never use it against a team on the other Detour. And they did that. The goal in using the U-Turn is 1) (by a huge margin) you don't finish last and 2) you try to eliminate the U-Turned team so they aren't bitter if they survive. This was a well-set up U-Turn - after a detour where there was a good split-up (not that the producers knew there would be that split).

I don't mind teams using the U-Turn, but that was a spiteful U-Turn that they didn't need to use. That whole arguement was stupid to begin with. I went back and looked, and the flight attendants were first there, Whitney could be clearing seen not there yet. But what difference did it make.

I just hope team clean teeth doesn't win.

Jim reminds me of actor Brian Thompson (the leader of the serial killer cult in the movie Cobra, the alien bounty hunter in X-Files). If I was sitting in a dentist's chair, and that guy came toward me with a needle, drill, and pliers, I'd shit myself.

Did anyone else notice that the mother and daughter flight attendants were the only ones running around without their bags? Did they leave them behind somewhere and go back for them later? If so, that's bullshit; everyone else had to lug them around.

I think that they mentioned they had to go back and pay the cab after their tasks, so I'm guessing they left their bags with their taxi and had to pay extra for his time , while everyone else paid their cabbies and took their bags with them. Calculated risk going forward with their budgeting...

I think the daughter said she learned Spanish in six months in the military and was able to negotiate with the cab driver to drive them around for a fixed price so they were able to leave their bags in the taxi. Risky if the taxi decide to bail but a smart move when it works.

I couldn't figure out why team dentistry wasn't U-turned... You have to flush out that save. I'm also of the opinion that Phil shouldn't have handed it back to them. It should be like an immunity idol on Survivor, once you use it, it's gone....
