Go Beauty Queens!

Danny and Oswald are dead to me. Dead. And they want a team to win that doesn't even know their names? Donny?

No one left to root for, so I'm going Sanjaya on this Race.

CHARLA AND MIRNA FOR THE WIN!!!

Fourth place twice. That really sucks.

Come on, Dustin and Kandice, you have to win so that my head doesn't explode at TARcon!

I'd trade two Danny & Oswald's for Charla/Mirna and Eric/Danielle. Not the result I wanted. But I do have to admit the line, "The Teletubbies Go To War" was absolutely classic Oswald. I'll miss him.

And I want to see him push Danny's wheelchair.

Go Queens. (Well go Eric and Danielle since I know they are not complete tools.) Just not Mirna.

167 hours till the finale. Hopefully I'll be numb with alcohol by then.

How could they do this to me again? I don't care who wins now.

Heh, I was saying to Mark that by the time the show starts next week I should have at least two drinks in me which should help.

I'm going to pretend that Danny and Oswald didn't call Charla and Mirna a "class act".

It had to have been Killer Fatigue that caused Danny and Oswald to say that they hoped Charla and Mirna would win. There's no other explanation.

I thought that they must have been being sarcastic when they said that.

I was not thrilled with the all-military theme of tonight's episode. Pretty boring, IMO. Although it was cool to see the task with C-17s, as that is the type of plane that my son works does maintenance work on and that I got a tour of when I visited him.

I am more excited about the preview than I was this episode. It looks like all three teams are running to the matt, and over that terrain doubt Charla & Mirna can win. I just hate their attitudes, I forget what she said about winning, but iut rubbed me the wrong way. Good solid reacing from the BQs. I am dissappointed the Danny & Oswald. Eric and Danielles edit has, especially Erics has done a compkete 180, he has supportive and hasn't made a toolish remark for episodes. Please win BQs! Wish the final was two hours

Hey guys, I've delurked long enough and decided to join in the fray.

The military theme today wasn't the most appealing of choices as to what to do in Guam, but those RB helicopters are kinda cool, though. On that note, the Roadblock was just a good one. The detour...not so much.

I'm rooting for the Queens, but wouldn't mind as much if Hairic and Danihell win...as long as it's not Mirna.

Sad to see Ozzy and Danny go, they were one of my faves too. Ozzy's quote about "The teletubbies go to war" was hilarious. Their exit interview was funny as well, although I kinda went, "Huh?" when they said CM were a class act. I don't think so.

Looks like they visit Hawaii next week first.

I liked the roadblock, leew, but washing jets isn't thrilling (and I LOVE planes!) and the airdrop appeared to have nothing to do with the care package that was assembled.

After reading Drew & Kevin's interview, I have to agree that this Race had some really boring tasks - tightening nuts, washing engines, tugging a gnome-laden boat, walking a rat. I can't think of anything that made you go "Wow-look where they are!", like season 1's Victoria Falls. This season felt heavy on city-life and low on natural wonders.

Marked For Elimination was a huge improvement, now they need to ban taxi-following, increase self-navigation, make fewer non-elims (NEVER two in a row), hit the countryside a little more, make some kind of effort (if possible) to prevent airport luck from being the overwhelming factor and come up with ideas to make winning about good racing instead of luck.

Whew- that feels better :P
