That is quite possibly the stupidest episode title since... last week, at least.

But it is one of the worse ones, IMnot-soHO.

Charla & Mirna first again? Oh, this is harsh. This is tough to watch. LOL.

I was hoping for a huge meltdown from Danielle. Wasn't Flo-like. Oh well.

So sad to see Terri & Eye-an go. I wouldn't have said that in the first episode. But I'm saying it now. They will be missed. *Sniff*

I had a hard time watching C&M in the lead, but it was funny when they didn't know exactly what they won.

Terri & Ian - you'll be missed. This was one of the most brutal travel legs I've seen in a while - so much shifting of position.

Aw, sad to see them go, but at least it was due to some airport drama that really was out of there hands as opposed to not racing well. Man, they could not catch a break.

I really hope the "where's Andre?" bit from Danny and Oswald was a clue that they watch Project Runway!

What a torturous leg for the Guidos and Teri and Ian. That kind of stress would put me over the edge.

It's funny that when Charla and Mirna were with Oswald and Danny they seemed a lot more mellow. Amazing what the spirit of the Cha can do! Speaking of Charla and Mirna, I loved their bewildered reaction when Phil announced their prize for finishing first.

Anyone who doesn't know what it is doesn't deserve a catamaran!!

Guido Edits for Teh Guidos! Miss Teri and Ian already. Loving C/M, O/D, and U/J. Annoyed by E/D.

Next week:

Charla: It's only a flesh wound! I'll bite your limbs off!

Charla is such a proud representative of a Towson education. That was more painful to watch than Mark Antony killing himself on Rome. Man, poor Teri and Ian and Guidos. How many days were they stuck at that airport

How many days did those lagging teams spend waiting in airports? Oye. That was awful for them.

Oswald was still en fuego this week, Charla and Mirna are entertaining when they're not freaked out, and I was sorry to see Teri and Ian go, much to my surprise. He's a lot more palatable without the drill sergeant chip implanted.

Anyone else feel that in the last two weeks the editors are really signalling early on who will be eliminated? You could guess this one in the first few minutes. I don't really care for this trend...

Decent leg, but really just a boatride, puzzle and toss-at-the-gourd...it felt light.

Another completely ridic detour task in this episode. Putting a puzzle together. Sheesh! Thank god we had some good eyebrow action from Phil to make up for it.

I loved Teri and Ian's chutzpah throughout this episode. Even knowing they were last, they gave it their all, including one last "We're coming, Phil!" I'm gonna miss them.

You have to admit, Charla and Mirna did a good job at getting that flight. The only way it helped was they were only in it for first place against Oswald and Danny, and won partially because Oswald and Danny wanted Tanzanian fruit. I laughed at the bench scene, that was funny.

What IS a catamaran?

Phil had interviewed that at one point there was a 17-hour difference between first and last. Since the Guidos and Teri & Ian arrived at the pit stop the next morning after the others, this had to have been the leg he was referring to. Poor Phil probably had to nap instead of really sleeping.

Tasks were okay, not great. I loved seeing Charla and Mirna acting like their TAR5 selves again -- they're more fun when they're less paranoid.

And yes, Guiseppe, I'm sure that was a Project Runway reference -- I laughed my head off when the Chas said that.

I liked that the BQs picked the physical task. They're certainly not afraid of working hard.
