I'm spoiling myself now because I'm still at work. I hear it wasn't a non elim but not a elim leg either? Gah! The humanity of it all!

Just what I was thinking! Love it - the look on Amber's face.

Damn you, Betram Van Munster! Damn you to Hell!

Do you have any idea how this buggers up my statistics?

Grrrrr.

Apart from that, decent episode.

Ah, the uber leg makes its return. Only this time it was on purpose. Good, because that was the reaction I wanted to see. And wouldn't you know it would take place in India. At least, IMO, this TBC was much better done that last season's.

What was up with all the "slow-mo pans of ill-fated mistakes" right before the detour? I kept expecting some kind of penalty or something for taking the rickshaw instead of a cab.

To Be Continued....The one in Budapest was unplanned due to an oversight: they don't allow begging in Hungary.

TBC = To Be Continued

So they're getting a double dose of India! Hee! Deliciously evil!

Where on earth did they ever find a government building with that many different departments in it? What a fabulous place!

And why on EARTH didn't Ron & Kelly Yield Rob & Amber when they had the chance??

I am relieved there will be no Racers begging in India because of a non-elim. I'm surprised everyone picked tea. It would have been fun if at least one team picked the other task.

eta - I loved that Uchenna was pushing the pedals on the rickshaw. He must have been hella tired by the end of that leg.

This is what I get for incomplete posting. I just wanted to know if it was a TBC ep and not a NE ep. I'm still at work and I'm spoiling myself.

Yes indeed. Rob & Amber got to "Phil and the mat," as the final clue said, and there was Phil with no greeter, who said, "You guys didn't think this is the end of the leg, did you? You're still racing. Here's your next clue." With a scrumptious eyebrow pop. I swear, he's doing that just for us these days.

And meanwhile, Kendra didn't, but even that wasn't enough for her to keep her mouth shut.

But hey! Next week? Amber's losing it! Finally. I really love Romber, but the fact that she may breakdown was long overdue.

Speaking of overdue, an official First Place finish in a leg is overdue for Uchenna and Joyce. But, not if they shut the hell up on why teams should help them!

It was worth Rob and Amber coming in first just to see their faces fall when Phil told them the leg wasn't over. I'm going to savor that image all week.

Ron and Kelly are dumb as a bag of hair. I can't believe they didn't use the yield.

I can't believe that none of the teams picked the coal! Very weak.

The expression on Amber's face was priceless, though I think the editors should've used a sound fx voice screaming "Noooooooooo!" to go with the visual. Hey, it's not like they haven't put words in racers' mouths before. (I remember a certain sampling of Lori saying "Let's go!" was put to multiple uses.)

HA! I love TBC!!! It's just so . . . perverted, in a way I can handle.

Mess with their heads, why don't you, Bertie?

And they wouldn't have seen the TBC in TAR6, because they were racing when that episode aired. Hee!

I want a TBC in every race now.

Otherwise, I wasn't all that enthused about this episode. Not much was going on of any interest until they all started running around in that building. So I'm glad the episode ended with some punch, because up to that point it had been rather tepid.
