It didn't matter because they totally missed the sign, but yeah, don't put the Express Pass taken sign at the bottom, place it at the TOP.

Anna Leigh about to force her dad to get a heart attack running up those stairs just to not get eliminated. Someone with ruthless edge is the perfect energy for The Challenge or Survivor.

I pretty much agree with you here but I don't think it really matters. Anna Leigh is going to push her Dad too far until he either drops over dead or finally bends her over his knee and spanks her. The way she carried on about this being the last time they would see them and she knows they lost! What a drama queen. This team is bound to implode. I just don't see them making it to the win.

Even her "this is beautiful; I'm just going to enjoy it" bit after the express pass debacle felt like passive aggressive bullshit.

Ultimately being consistently poor at navigation cost Lena and Morgan.

The clue before said climb the stairs. It said nothing about stairs on the next clue for going to the pit stop. Non-controversy edited in purely for dramatic purposes.

I thought this was a fantastic episode, one of the best in years. Some travel scrambling, challenging tasks/decisions (especially the Express Pass), breathtaking scenery in a beautiful country, dramatic moments, close finishes, it had it all. My only worry while watching was that it could all be ruined with the horrible phrase "keep racing" on the mat.

The clue said "travel by foot". Why do people (on social media) keep bringing up transportation, stairs, elevator....

They used something other than their feet to travel from the top floor to the bottom floor.

I'm more inclined to believe one of the earlier ranked teams didn't travel by foot, but it wasn't caught at the pitstop. They ranked and Phil waited for the other teams. Thus by the time Anna Leigh and Steve did it, they couldn't be penalized because the earlier ranked teams already checked in without penalty. That's my conspiracy theory haha

So would an escalator count as not by foot? This is nitpicking IMO.

I really don't care but I'm not a TAR obsessive type. I watch this show for the scenery and interesting tasks with a little drama here and there. The contestants are meaningless to me. I couldn't even tell you who is left except for the son and deaf father. So go them, I guess. Oh yeah, that daughter and father who are constantly yelling at each other are left too.

Or a moving sidewalk (flat escalator) in an airport? Or butt-sliding down a handrailing? What if a contestant somersaulted or walked on their hands for 10 feet? Or jumped off the building and landed in a swimming pool? Penalty!

An earlier team went to use the elevator, but it was taking too long so they went back down the stairs.

Glad to see Robbin and Chelsea get eliminated. For some reason, I did not like them. Didnít seem like they enjoyed being on the show.
