9.11 - I Think This Monkey Likes Me!

Hey, Elise - what happened to that "no more bulk eating" promise? Watching people barf = not my idea of a good time.

I agree on the vomit cam, miri. I can hardly wait for next week, watching the finale with a few hundred other obsessives - what could be better?

Wow that was good! Nice to see MOJO gone and the hippys in the final! Just the preview for next week makes it look amazing! And I start my watch for the countdown!


GARRRR I wish I was going to TARCON - you have no idea how bad I want to go!

Yeah, I was eating dinner and that was awful.

BUT, best roadblock EV-AH! Hee! Love those monkeys messing up their food!

Yeah, I loved the monkeys. Monkeys always rule.

I agree with miri on the bug eating. Did Elise hire the Fear Factor people to do that challenge? On a lighter note, it's very hard to type while I'm doing the happy dance. MoJo is OUT!

Edit: LOVED the Roadblock! It made up for some lame ones in legs past *coughgnomescough*
2nd Edit: Macabre coincidence. The monkeys toppled the feast towers. What season and episode is this?

Boo. I thought we were promised no more eating tasks.

Yay! Hippies made the final 3! I'm very happy with this outcome. I'm actually ok with any of the final 3 winning. Haven't felt that way since TAR...4. Jeez.

Loved the roadblock and loved the monkeys jumping all over Eric and Jeremy. That's something I would have loved to have done.

Yay, MoJo are gone! Hurray, hurray, hurray!

I, too, will be happy with any of the final three winning. I'm not sure that's ever happened before.

MoJo's gone, MoJo's gone!!!

Loved the roadblock. And I think the food promise had to do with volume, not grossness, though that was an awful lot of crickets to eat. Better than 4 pounds of beef, though.

Yes, I do -- it's the way I've felt every season since I heard about TARcon. And next week I'll finally be there -- weeeeeee!

I was so happy to see that MoJo bite it. They were so frazzled that they were making really stupid decisions, like not checking the ticket booth at the bus station to see if they could buy a ticket when that guy told them they couldn't despite the fact that the window looked open, and apparently misreading the time that the earliest bus left the next morning.

I was also thrilled to see the Hippies go from worst to first. I was a bit worried when they were talking about ditching the fast forward, because they would have been toast if they had done that. Glad they gutted it out. (Sorry!)

Oh sure they go to Thailand and go to a city I didn't visit. I was doing OK getting over my post trip depression, and then they had to show me Thailand. Those bastards.

I'm just glad the Hippies are still in it, and that MoJo is gone. Suddenly though, I'm all aboard the Ray Yolanda love train. I think I'm hoping for them to finish first.

As for the bugs, one cricket...kind of tasty, a whole bowl though, that's just gross. Enough with the over eating.

You are making me extremely jealous! A guy from Florida gets to go, but me, a girl that lives 45 minutes from NY has to stay at home by my lonesome. Sob.

Sorry, one and Tris, I didn't mean to make you jealous. Maybe one day you will be able to make it -- it certainly has taken a long time for me to get to go. Just remember rule number one of the race: don't ever give up!

I'm so happy the hippies used the FF and came in first, right after being last at the NEL. That made me smile! It made me smile even bigger watching MoJo go HOME! They got beat by pantless, shoeless hippies! That kicked ass.

I'm happy with the final 3 also, anyone could win at this point and I'd be cheering. :)
