Based on last week's preview that showed Mark saying he was ready to quit, I was already suspicious they wouldn't. Then when showing the pit stop after Dave and Rachel got the directions to it and Phil's voice over ended with "the last team to arrive may
be eliminated", it seemed pretty much assured that they would finish the challenge and continue on to race another day. And it was very evident that the Indians running/judging the dance task had been given instructions to make sure Mark passed on his final attempt. Even Bopper who had just talked him out of continuing on, all the sudden wanted him to "just give it one more try". Wonder why that was
. At any rate, I understand people wanting to root for them but their whole story/edit has been so orchestrated that it's having the exact opposite effect on me. I was like, "Just quit whining and finish the frickin' task or go home",
. You'd think they were the only team in TAR history who actually needed the money
As far as the border patrol guys go, I actually thought that their edit on the dance routine was funny as hell. The continuing clips of Art's commentary on the sideline saying dudes can't dance and updating the men vs women finisher tally was cracking me up. Yeah, those guys (especially JJ) are really arrogant, but I didn't really get the idea that they were complaining about the task being unfair as much as just that it sucked for them in general, and particularly with JJ being the one up on the stage.
From next weeks previews it looks like they're bringing back the seldom used forced hair cut task. What a deliciously perfect challenge for Green Rachel to draw
. The injury Vanessa suffers looks potentially serious like an Achilles tendon rupture possibly? It kinda looks like it may have just popped sending her hard to the pavement and giving her a nice roadrash patch on her shoulder as well....
