Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. I'm in my 50's and have been obsessed with trying to do cartwheels. I've now gone through about 25 adult gymnastics classes (that's over 25 hrs.) trying to learn just this skill and even though I've been able to do handstands against the wall, which I could not do before, I still can't do a cartwheel! So if I was doing this roadblock, I'd be royally screwed. Knowing TAR, if you couldn't do one, that would be it for your team. No free passes. I''d be trying to do them forever and I'd never get the next clue, so eventually Phil would come by and tell me to forget it..my team has been eliminated. I think this was a task that really shouldn't have been given to the racers. The girl they showed that couldn't do the cartwheel I'm sure eventually did one, probably not a good one, but good enough to get the clue. They really should have shown us the one she did that did get her the clue. And I would have liked to have seen more of the racer's cartwheels. We really only saw two.

Strange 'recap' this ep - this is the first time ever I think where they havent shown the team that came in last and was eliminated in the last leg, instead filling out the time with pointless references back to episode 1 (why show mike and marks bungee jump and the air hostesses coming in nearly last again?? it had no bearing on the episode). I wonder did theydelibarately decide not to include Steve and Linda footage because various media outlets were poking fun at Steve's crying when he was eliminated? Maybe Steve asked them not to put it in again cos he was embarrassed or something, or they just decided to spare him further embarrassment? Or something. Not that hes anything to be embarrassed about, Id be pretty devestated if I was kicked out of the race early on cos my partner screwed up badly!!! Id probably wail like a loon as well!

it was really strange - and weird foreshadowing about Tammy and Victor - I dont think they've ever done that before in a previously
