    I should have gone with my original choice of Abbie and Ryan! Hopefully I do better next season. For some reason, I really like Natalie and Nadiya.

    I am glad my team Jaymes and James are currently in the lead.


    I really like Natalie & Nadiya as well. They are becoming a favourite team for me.

    Yeah, I must say I really love Natalie & Nadiya too. They are good and strong team, and their accent gives this feeling to the whole season that TAR has finally gone international


    It's good to have some pints from my pool choice team, but I'm worried that this team starts quite good, but somehow manages to loose their initial 'fast' start during the leg. hopefully that won't lead to a bad pattern

    I think Amy & Daniel were a really strong team but got really unlucky with their bad taxi. I think they had the potential to go really deep into this game, and I'm really upset they're out.



    I'm also liking Natalie & Nadiya. But I really love my choice - Trey & Lexi - as well, and I love the alliance between those two teams.


    Other teams I like so far are Caitlin & Brittany, Jaymes & James and James & Abba.

    Gary & Will have sure been lucky these past two legs! I hope for your sake that they can continue!



    I was sad to see the girls go home today, though. They were one of my favourites.

    how about adding a category for points when a team gets a sucky cab driver (maybe10) and point if a team has a "meltdown" moment

    that could work. But my only conern would be that it might be too subjective, and one person's opinion of a bad cab driver or meltdown may differ from another's. If people are fine with me determining these things subjectively, then I don't mind adding it to the poll...

    So do I, but at heart I'm a James and Abba fan due to their rock and roll history. It doesn't look too good for my team...I'll say they will be out within the next two weeks. I didn't really care for the girls though.

    Yes it is very subjective, but maybe if they make a note of a bad driver/meltdown then it would count? Hopefully for my sake!

    Too bad for me, yet another premature elimination. How long will it be until I can actually win something here? Also some teams definitely get some bad taxi points!!
