They didn't show enough of Chamonix, just the train going past gorgeous scenery. But next week should have some spectacular snow scenery as they actually race in the Chamonix valley.

The paragliding through the Alps was AMAZING, so jealous.

Those challenges seemed lopsided, walk up to a person or build two tents to identical specs.

The camel race was a tough challenge. I've never seen contestants so pooped.

They'd all have had a much easier time if any of them had bothered to raise their seats in order to get a halfway decent leg extension. This would have resulted in much better pedalling efficiency.

They all had to work much harder as a result. Maybe raising the seat was against the rules or more likely, no seat wrench, no changey.

I was amazed how well Mom did .. Sheri .. and, to boot, she's hot (boob job likely, but that's OK) .. the ladies in the Gold Bikini's all looked good ..

I like how positive Cole is, but wow, so annoying in many other aspects. Saved again.

Whatever the reason , I doubt any of them know that seat height helps with peddling.

Just prolonging the inevitable.

Unless there's bunching on the next leg, Cole and Sheri will be starting hours behind.

Even when they start at level, they do the tasks worse and can't navigate.

I thought the mom was going to be the dead weight of the mom/son team, but Cole hasn't done much. Mom had to do the mountain climbing, the oil change, and the paragliding.

Her oil change was less than stellar. She never learned righty-tighty and lefty-loosey.

Perhaps I misremembered.

To anyone interested in a Google Chromebox or Chromebook..
Be aware that these boxes run a variant of Linux and DO NOT support HDCP!!!
This means no support for HD on most streaming services. I wish I would have known this beforehand....

So quiet in here. Great strategy by Burnie and Ashley at the Double U-Turn this week. In the interest of good gameplay, I was hoping they would put Tyler and Korey up knowing they were ahead and taking the 2nd U-Turn away from Kurt and Brodie. You don't always see teams thinking like that even though it should have been an obvious play.
