I was confused by that. Did they have to find the one string of flags that had the colors in a different sequence from the other strings or did the patterns matter too? It's no wonder a few teams switched to the other task.

It was only the color sequence that mattered, thus the name of the challenge “Color Correction.”

I dont know why so many teams found it difficult to do that string of flags challenge! you literally just had to hole the string up by both ends and walk under each string and match them, if they matched move to the next row until you find one that doesn't. should have taken them 15 mins max since there were at least 12 possible strings to find.

love the space cadet beach twins who sound like every Generation Z kid who I work with...."I'm not in the right mental state to deal with all those colors!"

even better was the black husband and wife team putting the skull makeup on her husband and calling out his 'sweaty ass face'

I hated to see the space cadet blonde twinnies go. They provided a lot of laughs.

That Bandeja Paisa looked so good I went online and found a Columbian restaurant nearby. Their menu even listed the Bendeja Paisa first. They don’t know it yet, but a new customer is coming!

Those KK cousins are a hilarious hot mess again. Love it.

Retired cops coming in 3rd again. Go team go!

Yea that food looked delicious. I bet the pork was raw for some of those dishes haha I know they didn’t try eating it.

I always feel bad about the other Detour task when nobody goes to it (only seen that once in all previous seasons). So I only felt a little bad when nobody finished the jeep task.

I am guessing production was surprised/crushed when the Twins went out this early. Their was little actual navigation for them to stumble through in the episode so a betting person would have assumed they outlast at least 1 of the other bottom tier teams this episode.

A lot of weak teams this season. The twins had no sense of urgency.

I’m always puzzled by teams like them. The word “Race” is right in the show’s name. Of course there’s also the other extreme, like the girl last season who nearly killed her father flogging him through legs like Gunnery Sergeant Hartman.

Or how Sean is afraid of heights and unwilling to walk (or even crawl) down a hill. Has he never seen the show before?

I don't mind that there are "weak" teams. If anything, that's more entertaining to watch. Sad to see airhead surfer twins go ... they had a lot more funny stuff to deliver.

This season does feel rough going back a couple of years to the COVID era. I fear the 90 minute episodes are going to be more of a slog as the number of teams gets lower and lower.

I don't understand why the show is erratic about having limited spots for each detour. Not only does that give more of a reward for being higher in the standings, but it's more entertaining for the viewers when everyone isn't doing the same task.

That said, that's 2 weeks in a row where a task just seemed to have a bad design and confusing instructions for players. And couldn't production have predicted that no one would want to do a physical task after all of those stairs?

Oof, my team (retired cop) just barely made it.

Contestants can bring compasses, correct? If so, a compass would have been perfect for this map essential episode (April 10 episode).

A pet peeve of mine is when someone rotates a map. For me to read a map, I need it stay in the correct orientation.

I hope none of the three teams that all worked together on this leg win, especially the goofy-ass kid and his mom. I get my fill of alliance bullshit on Survivor.

What was Danny thinking having his poor heat exhausted mom perform both roadblocks in a MEGA leg?

Shelisa's reaction after Derek completed the map your course roadblock. Looked like it had less to do with memorizing the course and more with just putting a puzzle together.
I was bummed to see my favorite team exit last night. Apparently they were far behind and were told to go straight to the pitstop thus not being able to perform the last detour.

He said it to the cameraman before the start of the bubble soccer roadblock: His mom would do as many roadblocks early then he can do the remaining ones. He is using the “equal opportunity” rule to their advantage.
