    3 teams I don't really care for in the bottom 3. Not sad to see YouTube go at all...

    Extremely happy with the outcome, and also a very good leg IMO.

    Even though I'm now out, but I'm happy with the outcome. Bye-bye Youtube! Won't miss ya and all.


    Quite enjoyable leg indeed, and I just could not believe that Dave and Connor's mistake did not rob them the first place. Seems that as long as their in good health their pretty unstoppable and extra fast.


    Oh, and judging from the next week's preview, Luke is going get his cry baby moment. Hopefully they'll be out next

    Rachel kept herself composed on the river and she held on to the gnome. I am shocked, she must be working on that. I wish more legs took place on river like that. I don't see how Dave and Connor were able to get first after their mistake at the Detour or why they just didn't do the birds.

    i was wondering that too,


    the editors cut of teams kinda made it look like they were way behind the afgans/cowboys, so i guess the walk/run between the 'forrest and the camp' was shorter than the river section.



    in a way it was bordering on an advantage and not how the task was supposed to be done.



    as for luke 'crying' well he probably has a flash back of the 'tea drinking' challenge, to me that tea challenge was painfull to watch having to drink every cup to get past it as other teams 'got lucky' and moved on. also my heart bled for him..


    i hope this not another one of those moments.


    and i have sometime suspected foul play on some of the 'judged' tasks..

    I was very happy about the episode I like Dave/Connor and Hate YouTube I just wish J/J could get to the front of the pack. I'm kinda curious if the rapids were as dangerous as the teams made it seem. And I was shocked that Leo/Jamal did not lie

    It was painful to watch because it was a luck challenge and not one of skill. I also think teams were able to figure it out because the bottom of the cups were marked. Dave/Lori from season 9 finished a luck based task quickly because they saw the clue under the label or something like that. I think the judges are rigged too but only for teams way behind. A judge in season 17 made a mistake and instead of mentioning it on the show, they left everyone confused as to why there was no speed bump or how everyone was equal when they shouldn't have been.

    I don't see how the tea challenge from Season 18 is luck-based at all - it's more a memory challenge.

    the tea challenge wasn't memory cos every cup that was drank was removed from the table.



    luke was down to the last few when i finally found the last 'cup' to move on.



    so luck based

    I simply have to disagreee - they had to remember the flavour of the tea for back from China and then find it. While there is an element of luck to finding it quickly, it is also a memory task, and he didn't seem to know what he was doing.
