    I'm fine with Rob & Kelley (:

    I think they could be the unpredictable ones that go quite far.

    The first leg was quite good, though I guess it'll get much better throughout the season. My team, Jaymes and James almost bit the dust, thank god they're still around.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Jaymes & James were first in the Starting Line Challenge?

    I wasn't a big fan of Leg 1 personally. I'm glad Jaymes & James survived, but I'm also sad Rob & Sheila went home because I also liked them.


    After one leg, I despise Josh & Brent. Them seem so annoying already... :/
