Joyce shaves her head and gets no prize? So unfair.

Buh, bye boys!

Okay, it's official: I now totally want Uchenna and Joyce to win the whole thing.

And, having said that, excuse me while I go recover from the near-asthma attack I gave myself laughing at the camels.

Shocked to see the boys go, although not particularly sorry.
Gretchen and Meredith have the luck of the clueless. I almost poked out my own eardrums when G. was doing the frenzied harpy thing from high atop the elephant. Get down and push, woman!
Joyce has large ovaries to pull off the shaving of the head, even though she pretty clearly has extensions in there. I'm not sure that I coulda done that.
Also, in the previews: What the hell was Kelly talking about? Ron is a commitment phobe b/c he's a POW? Does not compute.

I laughed so hard at that I scared my cat. (And started another coughing fit.) That was so weird.

Kelly is an idiot. And Rob is a joyless ass -- I cannot stand him.

Really. Ron got out of his commitment to the military...by being a POW? Say whuh? Okay, Kelly officially has a screw loose.

Do you think if Joyce is tired of Uchenna, she'd let me have him? Could he have been more perfectly supportive while she was getting her head shaved? So help me, if she doesn't appreciate him, I'll kick her ass from here to next week!

I think that Kelly comment warranted a hearty "Shut the fuck up!"

Completely agree, Big Slick. I'm hoping that's what we see.

Seriously, it's better that she gets a fresh start with new hair.

Kelly really enjoyed that camel ride, huh?

"My butt hurts. But I had fun."

I so wanted Amber's camel to run the track completely the opposite way. I liked it when Gretchen was cackling at the whole thing.

I think Kelly ended up boxing herself into a corner with the POW remark. Moral of the story - never start an arguement you don't know how to do.

As for the rest - Joyce and Uchenna always seem to hit the wrong location. Props to Joyce for shaving her head - no hesitation, not even when Uchenna blinked.

I'm not sure I buy Kelly as the shrill bitch of the season. I think the editors are doing a hatchet job to her. She didn't know anything about Ron or anythng about the Amazing Race before she came on. She hasn't given up at this point. I think she was the only one concerned about Meredith's physical condition when pushing that elephant. Rob especially went by them really coldly. To me, it was reminiscent of the Botswana crash incident, which he will never be off the hook for.

And if not, should she show up at Tarcon, someone won't think twice to say that directly to her! I'm sorry to say...she'd deserve it in that case.
