Look at Mirna, looks like a really bad basketball shot. And goto picture 17, Terri is spazing out more then the fish! God, I would have HATED to do that roadblock. They should make Eric do it after the season is over.

Surely there was still time before the ticket counters opened up to do it, since U&J could tell them exactly how to get to the hotel and which flight to look for.


I wondered that too, but I just assumed that there wasn't enough time left.

Iirc, BJ & Tyler said in one of their interviews that once they arrived at the airport they had to turn the car in, hence they went back into town to beg for money instead of confirming a flight first. I assumed that this was the case here as well. We didn't see what vehicle they were in to get back to the hotel so I figured it was a courtsey shuttle and that's why there wasn't enough time.

The way Eric talks to Danielle is inexcusable. I wanted to smack him with one of those fish.

btw, does anyone know what kind of fish they were ? To me they looked kind of like stingrays without the stingers.

Beautiful scenery this week...but I'm ready for a new continent.

I think they were flounders, because of the way they sticking close to the bottom of the tank. Sting rays have long pointy tails and the stinger is near where the tail joins the body.

I've seen several instances through the years of a Racer thelling their teammate who had just done a scary Roadblock or Detour what a great job they did
Yeah, not to excuse Eric's behavior because he was acting like an ass, but it was FISH. Fish. Not deadly fish, flounder. Not the scariest thing in the world.

I cannot figure out why Mirna is even on the Race. She never seems to be having a good time and always seems to be suffering. And, why I don't think they are good racers - when they figured out the Guidos mistake, they could have taken the moment to laugh and bond with them, which could get the Guidos on their side which could help them later, but no, Mirna had to show how superior she was to them. And, when you barge up to a ticket counter and interrupt someone else, the person always stops and helps you. Geez.

Didn't Eric (or Danielle) say that Bill looked psycho? Hee. I'm not seeing it, but it's better than looking like a giant ass (Eric).

I'm just not seeing the "love connection" between Eric and Danielle. At all.

I don't even think Eric and Danielle like each other, none the less are actually dating.

Good point about the teams having to turn in the cars. heliwoman. I hadn't considered that it could have been a shuttle.

Bill looks more like a distinguished gentleman rather than psycho. Danielle is a bimbo.

I forgot the best part - Team Guido in their matching black outfits with their haircuts looked just like Carmen Ghia in the Producers.

Who knew Flounderphobia was so prevalant? 3 of 18 people seemed to have it. Still, a good episode.

I have to begrudgingly acknowledge that Romber might actually be good racers. The first time around I chalked up their high placement to a woeful lack of quality competition. They are doing better than holding their own against a far superior pack. Now if only Rob & Brennan, Frank & Margarita, and KennyG had replaced the cannon fodder that's already been Philiminated, we could see how they really stack up.

quote from Rob "he was constanl making comments about her breasts, not to say I wasn't making comments about Amber, "Amber you look like a fisher women" there different typesw of comments"
I am not a Romber fan at all, but Ros comments weren't sexist at all, while erics were.

Yeah, Rob would never go on television and make comments like that about Amber.

In her interviews, Mirna always looks like an actress portraying a grieving widow. Every time she has this face on like "I will perservere, despite my enormous tragedy."

I never heard "The last team to arrive may be eliminated" so I was thinking perhaps it would be non-elim, though it's awfully early for that.

Seriously, after being on the Race once and (hopefully) having seen the show before, why in the world would you go on a task without knowing what you were supposed to do? If your clue said nothing about rafting, yet you find rafts, doesn't that ring a warning bell? Very disappointed the BQ's blunder didn't cost them anything. That's just dopey racing.
