    Didn't mind this episode - the tasks were rather good, and the end of leg drama was intense.


    So happy the Brenchels won!

    Besides the end of leg stuff I found it pretty lackluster

    this !


    i also think they should work on the editing a bit more some teams are way behind are suddenly getting a huge boost which judging by some of stuff they do doesn't seem possible. yes the country singers one of which has narrow set / too close together eye's and she creeps me out...


    last week they were hours behind,


    the speed bump seemed to be edited down to save time,


    and i don't remember seeing them doing the gladiator/chariot task..


    i'm sure there's a delorean in the background sometimes..



    i felt the first half dragged on and kinda bored me,


    then the last quarter perked up.

    I really enjoyed this leg. The tasks were quite good, and that gladiator challenge was really fun to watch. The Roadblock at Spanish steps would've been a mission impossible were it set on some remote location since well who knows Roman numerals above X anyway. And I really enjoyed Brenchel's win


    Since John and Jessica were in my 'neutral', I'm really OK with them out.

    I really like episodes where the tasks actually have something to do with the country they are in and cant really be completed anywhere else. I was surprised so many teams picked the chariots when I thought the Gladiator was obviously easier. I don't know why the Afghanimals gave the answer away. They wasted so much time that it was unreasonable to think the country singers were definitely behind them.
