Right now I am rooting for Team Fun to win it all, followed by the Afghanimals. I get a kick out of them fooling everyone into thinking they are in the wrong place.

I honestly don't care about 3rd place, but if I had to choose I guess I'd say Janelle and Britney simply for the eye candy. Keep them around as long as possible.

Yeah, for me, they are the stand outs as well .. although the Afghanimals sometimes get on my nerves, Rachel and her sister are even worse ..

Team Fun is actually having fun ..

.
It would be funny if the Afghanimals were really telling th truth that they were in the wrong place and the annoying Survivor female team didn’t believe them and went that way anyway. Or if the Afghanimals told them the truth that the location was really in a building and they didn’t believe them and left.

I find the Afghanimals to be far too full of themselves to even like a little bit, now. I liked them very much the first time they were on but now, they just seem like they think they're all that and a bag of chips.

Corinne/Eliza were not very gracious in their exit .. I don't recall a Team ever being so angry over coming in last .. usually, it's a "We did our best, glad to have had the opportunity, we grew as Humans, etc " .. I suppose Rachel/Elissa being at the mat at the same time did not help ..

Only one "Survivor" Team left ..

Wow, Eliza's team was REALLY bad at this game.


She was afraid of scooters because they are so big. ???

Corinne looks familiar but I don’t remember what she was like on Survivor. Elissa hasn’t changed at all. Her eyes are the fittest part of her body since she’s constantly rolling them. And always whining and complaining. No class for either one. Sore losers.

It’s too bad the Silicone Sisters weren’t eliminated before them though. Another lame justification: “Were going to do well at the water wheel challenge because we put together toys for our kids.” Barf.

Argh! Rachel and Elissa keep holding on. Janelle really screwed up. And Afghanimals have to focus.

I really can’t stand the Silicone Sisters. Rachel is the worst. At least Elise has enough self awareness to know when to dial it back. Do they really not know why no one wants to team up with them?

Someone please u-turn them ASAP! I hope the last place team can overcome the speed bump to not be eliminated. And the big dudes better hope there’s not a lot of running in the next leg.

While I can't stand either, I agree on your assessment of Elisa. She at least gets it.

I thought it was hysterical a couple of episodes back where Rachel kept whining and crying in the cab and Elisa pretty much kept telling her to shut up.

What was it that Phil said at the of the previews which garnered a surprised or shocked reaction? I couldn't make out what had been said.

That u-turn vote out in the open was cruel. Glad the Silicone Sisters were nominated. Such a difference between the reactions of the two u-turned teams. Rachel really has no class.

The dude on the holistic team has really changed. I thought he was going to melt down again with the uncooperative cow. But he really seems to have changed. At this point, I don’t mind any of these teams winning. The Afghanimals keep having mental errors and Team Fun needs to learn how to navigate on their own.

Imagine if they had survived the U-Turn? She would have thrown it in the other teams’ faces for the rest of the time. The holistic team handled it graciously.

Yep, told my wife if I were there, I would not be able to stop myself from saying something like "See, acting like this is why people u-turn you. None of the other teams who got u-turn votes cried and complained."

Oh, but tell Rachel she's run the most legs of any contestant and she'll bask in the glow .. and, perhaps, offer up some personal favors as well ..

Team Reilly was a poor team, any way you slice it .. at least Rachel's sister seemed to have a modicum of dignity ..

It will be a sad day if they ever invite Rachel back on the Race ..

To this day, my favorite moment was during Rachel's first time on the show. I don't recall the other woman's name, but she said right to Rachel's face "you should have gotten a nose job instead of a boob job."

The look on Rachel's face, followed by her whining was priceless.

Dang! Team Fun eliminated again on leg 10. At least this time it wasn’t all Floyd’s fault. They should have done that egg toss game where they throw each egg across the canal. And Afghanimals continue to mess up. At this rate, they’ll be eliminated next and anyone of the last three teams can win. They have all been consistently strong. Victoria was a bit annoying this time. Help your partner pedal!

It was all her fault, he specifically said are the eggs OK and she just said yes lets go and never looked.


Loved her comment when the guy said this one is cracked. She was like, that's OK.

They did open the egg bag and just moved the eggs at the top around. They both should have checked all the eggs, but they were too panicked to take the time.

I get the feeling that Becca has a really dark side that she keeps under control in front of the cameras. She probably strangles kittens when no one is looking! The show tried to make it seem like Team Fun might have had a chance but based on their faces and lack of energy when they docked their boat at the island, they knew that they were out.

Victor and the little blonde are weak.

Colin and Christie unless there is a lot of running, in which case the gay guys are most fit collectively.

Another team I was rooting for gone home .. I kept wondering if the rules stated you had to have an exact dozen eggs in the bag, and, if not, why not add a few extras just to make sure you had some spares .. ??

I got the feeling that Becca was completely confused this leg. First, she didn't check the eggs (yes, both of them were at fault there), then when the guy said it was cracked she said "That's okay."
Then at the mat, I honestly believe she thought they wouldn't be eliminated because of the look on her face after she joked that it's a non-elimination.
