    So Joey & Meghan and Pam & Winnie scored big this week! And Mona & Beth are finally on the board!


    I think Dave & Connor were living on borrowed time, but at least they scored some big points and big wins before going home!

    getting eliminated with an express pass was the most idiotic move ever on TAR.


    I agree that it was a really dumb move, but to be honest I am actually a little surprised to see the fact that nobody has ever been eliminated with and/or eliminated on the leg in which they used the Express Pass. You would think that sooner or later somebody would wind up so far behind that not even the Express Pass would save them (e.g. because of a basically horrible flight like Uchenna & Joyce) but I think we could potentially see that kind of scenario play out in future.

    Finally my team earned some points, and I've alreadys started to wonder if they are to stay with 0 points until they get the boot/win, etc.

    Yeah but that would be different because they would have tried to use the Express Pass. Rachel/Davealmost got eliminated whenthey used the Express pass but Ralph/Vanessa and Elliot/Andrew were so far behind that they survived.


    At first I was surprised that no one came infirst when using the Express pass thenI realized it is better to useit to avoid Last then to use it to get first.


    Speakingof theExpressPass. What if inSeason 21 Abbie/Ryan would have gotten the Express pass for winning leg one who would have that season.

    That's a good question - they probably would still have gone home in the Netherlands because the Express Pass is only able to be used until Leg 8.

    Sorry to see you out! But at least you scored quite well compared to most other teams in past seasons who leave this early!


    Hopefully you can go further next time!

    Yeah but they would not have been behind all the other teams by as much and might have beaten the Beakmens that leg.

    I'm thinking that maybe if they had the express pass they would not have been on that flight that got delayed causeing them to miss a connection but been on an earlier flight with either Natali/Nadia or Jaymes/James

    It's possible - hard to say for sure. There is also the possibility that they could have used the Express Pass on an earlier leg to try and win the leg (not a smart strategy, but nonetheless possible).

    I didn't hate the Beekmans in the end (and this was after I found them really annoying in the early parts) and I was happy for them, but I preferred the other two teams in the Final Three and I agree that the Beekmans didn't desrve it - it worked out in identical fashion to Eric & Danielle who did not deserve it either.

    I almost bit the dust this week! I hope my team can bounce back, although Caroline & Jennifer are my new faves!


    Bates & Anthony scored high this week, but everybody got at least ten points which is nice to see! (all the Detour switching helped )

    I think Eric/Danielle deserved more because of Eric's Previous.


    I think It was more like Kiesh/Jen who didn't deserve to win.

    Beekmans should have been gone and would have if James and Abba hadn't gotten their passports stolen. but their win was kinda poetic justice for them u-turning Ryan and Abby because they didn't see the beekmans as a threat.
    Back to the current season and the pool, my team's not doing the best, but by the time I got to pick a team--it was only a choice between two teams and my other choice was eliminated early

    I think Kisha & Jen definitely deserved their win - more than most. Despite the fact that they didn't win any prior legs, they were consistently finishing high, unlike Eric & Danielle or the Beekmans. Eric was a strong racer with Jeremy, but the team of Eric & Danielle was painful for me to watch, to be honest.


    I may be biased about Kisha & Jen though! After all, they are in my Top Five of all time!
