Anyone else think Phil should have kept the "Save" even though it was a non-elimination leg? I guess that was part of the rules of the save, but it would make it more interesting if you could potentially waste the pass not knowing if it was an elimination leg or not.

YES!

I was just about to respond to the other comment and mention this, too!

If Jeff Probst was host, he probably would've kept it.

That said, I bet the producers want to actually see the Save in action, so they probably don't want to see it disappear just like that.

Regarding the girls being 2 hours ahead - did they say anything about that at the beginning of the leg? I doubt they knew where all the other teams were...

Why do so many people assume what Phil is going to say? You know what they say about assume. Just shut up and let Phil say his spiel and then if needed you can play your save.

They got their lesson in humble after a few fumbles. He seemed really deflated by it, at least temporarily. We'll see if they're back to their old king/queen of the AR universe routine soon enough.

Being very athletic, smart, along with a positive attitude will definitely help your odds in getting far in the game. But there is enough randomness built-in to the game which prevents even the most gifted from cruising first to the finish line each and every time.

Mourning the disappearing usage of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

The way he pops out his eyes when he's staring at something is kinda weird ..

I tend to drift towards the Teams that really seem to try and have some fun on the run .. these guys are all game, at least that's what it looks like ...

Did I miss something random in that leg that was pure luck, that made it a non elim leg?

I thought that was the result of way too many steroid injections . . .

It looks to me like she's had way too many plastic surgery procedures . . .

I thought it was pretty tacky of a few of the racers to show such disgust of the leather and food tent set up in front of the locals. Especially, the leather challenge. Here you have the regular workers waist deep in the tanning chemicals who work there everyday for probably less than a dollar a day. This is how workers around the world make the leather for the racers' trendy designer sandals and handbags that cost hundreds of dollars. And these guys are standing there complaining about the smell. At least, one of them said it smelled like manure. Then Mr. Classy Dentist says "It smells like sh!t.". Welcome to the real world.


I'm liking the Cycling team. Very positive and seem to be having a good time along the way. The dentists definitely need to get out before the guy's eyeballs pop out of his head or his whole head explodes. Mom/Daughter are going to self destruct again. Props to Surfer girl. She does more with less than other racers and doesn't complain. Don't even remember the other teams.

Which could cause serious collateral damage to his ass ... due to, you know, proximity ...
