12.6 - Cherry on Top of the Sundae That's Already Melted

Have at it

I loved it when Ron said they knew what a catamaran was.

What happened to everyone's backpacks?

This was the best TAR inside joke ever - remember Charla/Mirna last season? ;)

It's official -- TK and Rachel are my favorite team.

OTOH, I hate Jen and Nate as much as they hate each other. Let's hope they haven't reconciled, because they clearly don't belong together. And if they do reconcile and get married, there's always the danger they'll reproduce, which would be awful because the kids would probably get the worst traits of both. I'm so glad they didn't come in first!

Anyway, the challenges weren't all that scintillating this time. Sort of a blah episode IMO.

Phil to Nathan and Jennifer: "Make haste." Huh? And HA!

Finally, something NOT toolish. I couldn't stop laughing at that.

I didn't mind the siblings, but they should have checked to make sure what class those tickets were. My paranoid mind would have forced me to triple check.

Especially the roadblock. I was like... "what kind of roadblock is that?

Looks like the Intersection is gone, because this would have been the leg for it. Good riddance.

I thought Arazia & Hendezia would be one of those teams that would finish first in a bunch of legs and make it to the finals, but not win the race, like Colin & Christie and Kris & Jon.

Ron & Chris have surprised me so far, along with Nick & Don. I thought by now, these teams would be gone. Here's still hoping a 2-person family team will win the race for a change.

I forgot about Charla & Mirna not knowing what a cataram was, I love Tarflies for reminding me about those gems =) Too funny

Best episode of the season! Glad that H & A are gone, I'll never have to learn how to spell their names. He is soo patronising and condescending towards his sister, it was hard to take. I feel sorry for her. I do feel a bit sorry for Nathan, because Jen just starts attacking when something goes wrong. Her thank you to Phil after being sent back to redo the taxi ride, was so forced polite. I am shocked people say they fans of the show and haven't learned how to row a boat properly, at least Ron was rowing correctly. He still gets out of line, but I see a remdemption arch coming. I also see a final three finish, with Rachel & TK, and Kynt & Vyxsin. The airline pilot must still see himself as a little kid around his grandpa, because he still acts a like a kid. Lets Grandpa do most of the detours and the physical detours to boot. And the kid keeps getting annoyed as his grandpa for being human for getting tired and having to do the task at a steady speed. I hope they surprise me for Grandpas sake.

I thought the zipline tasks were great! I'd love to do that first one.

I'm loving Kynt and Vyxsin more with every episode. I want a pink cowboy hat. And a goth action hero.

You liking a team wearing pink? Imagine that! :)

I'm just glad there are enough non-super-stressed teams to help balance out Nathan and Jennifer.

I have never traveled business class (or first class for that matter) but wouldn't it say that somewhere on your tickets? It seems like that was a really basic mistake to make, especially for two fairly intelligent people.

I was sorry to see these two be eliminated and was hoping for a non-elimination round but I enjoyed seeing Nate & Jen get sent back for not following the rules. It couldn't have happened to a more deserving couple, especially after Jen stood in the street and whined about how it was "not fair" that they couldn't get a taxi and were not going to be first.

I now know who the brother reminds me of ... Wile E Coyote Super Genius. I knew that superior intellect stuff was bound to come back to haunt them. Brother to sister normal meltdown but I just kept picturing Jack Nicholson at the end of "A Few Good Men" having his meltdown on the stand. People who have trouble admitting when they are wrong drive me crazy, you made a mistake move on.

Go Goths ... didnt think they would be my favorite team but by the 3rd week they started to grow on me.


editted to add:

Nate and Jenn have a new travel class -- NO

I have a new hero - that cab driver. And you know, when you are turned down by one cab, it makes sense to just stand in the middle of the street screaming. It will make it so much easier to get another cab. As soon as they got on that car, I said that they weren't allowed to do that.

Whew on the ending. I have nothing against the brother/sister (except he was a jerk to her at the airport) but I like the Grandfather/son (even though I can never remember their names).

Checking my DVD recording of the race, Azaria did tell the agent that he wanted Economy, but the agent apparently didn't hear him. It's up to he and Hendekea to check the tickets before they leave the agent's office. Never assume.

Last night was not one of my favorite episodes... overall it felt really uneven. It seemed like alot of time was spent at the airport with not a lot of drama except for the ticketing mistake, then the tasks were really rushed and the editing seemed choppy. I was happy with the sibling's elimination though, as his treatment of her was getting on my nerves. Also liked that K/V got more screen time and hope that the preview meltdown for next week turns into nothing, as previews so often do.

Not one of my favorite episodes, although I did enjoy watching Nate & Jen have a meltdown. However, my favorite moment was in the next episode previews, when Kent yells "Damnit Vixen, you stop this car right now!" It's the delivery that cracked me up.
