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 ďColor Correction.Ē

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 donít 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 didnít 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.

Iím always puzzled by teams like them. The word ďRaceĒ is right in the showís name. Of course thereís 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 ďequal opportunityĒ rule to their advantage.

Re: The Amazing Race Season 36 (CBS) Premieres 3-13-24

I have no issues with teams working together at this point in the race. Sometimes it makes strategic sense. Given the dynamics of the race, athletic, bilingual military pilots are about as "overdog" as you can get. Am I supposed to root for them? And the gay couple (male) are annoying.

I enjoyed Derek and Shelisa's interpersonal interactions so I'll miss them.

There were so many bad teams this year that it's been more a race to see who is the worst one week to week.

Completely agree. I canít stand that kind of racing. It has gotten completely out of control and it is time for the show to finally do something to prevent or at least dramatically limit it. Between that and a mega-leg being essentially decided by the first detour there wasnít much going for this episode.

As I watched the second episode, I realized why the producers didnít want to make these long episodes. The editors were probably going insane in the editing bay watching these teams fumble from task to task.

The teams helping each other like that is complete bullshit. Especially when they have a rule in place that won't let you swap out with your own partner for the challenge, but they will let another team member basically complete the challenge for you.

Fuck that shit.

It is one thing to help each other out with directions or answering a question but there needs to be a line drawn on all challenges. If they can't complete it themselves, then they are just fucking out. Period. Or at least change the rule and allow a limited # of swap-outs with your own team member. That seems more reasonable than allowing this crap.

I donít understand. Danny and Angie got eliminated not because they got lost, but the production crew van following them got lost? And if they could just meet up again at the next challenge, why did their crew show up over an hour later than Danny and Angie? Racers canít use GPS, but production can, right?

Just a really sour note in a season that was already subpar.

Danny referred it to as a punishment so I wonder if they broke the rules losing the crew. That would suck.

The editors had to make longer episodes while also cutting out COVID references. Iím sure they could have added more context or an actual explanation for why they got a punishment. Instead of we get a lot filler footage of the rain and racers lost on the road.

That's really fucked up.

https://www.realityblurred.com/reali...ny-angie-crew/

Really poor planning on the producers' part. Something like this was bound to happen. Since the crew never showed up, it makes me wonder if there isn't more to the story, like their van broke down or they were involved in an accident. They should have either paused the race when the crew didn't show up or give Danny and Angie some kind of time credit.

TAR has always been my favorite reality competition series, but stuff like makes me question the integrity of the whole thing.

It sounds like they technically lost their crew, but, apparently, the crew van following them took a wrong turn off of a roundabout and separated themselves from the team they were following. There's really nothing I can think of that the team could have done in that case to either prevent it from happening or get back to their crew. I would think that both cars would have had GPS so the producers could monitor their movements not only so they could reconnect if they got separated in traffic, but for safety reasons.

Man, this was total horseshit. And to think I was irritated by the producers letting people cheat their way through challenges on one of the previous episodes, but that was just the bullshit icing on the horseshit cake. The fucking crew loses you and you get penalized for it? What a crock of dogshit. Who makes these batshit crazy rules?

Especially when they have crew there at the next challenge and everybody has already mentioned GPS. Just fucking wow. As mentioned above, this should have been addressed properly in the episode and explained better. Likely the producers were too chickshit to explain themselves.

Has this ever happened or been mentioned before?
