    YAY!!! The moms are still in it!!!!! That made my night!! Good for them in overcoming their disadvantage and making it through this leg of the race. :D

    I was kinda bummed for the brothers though. They definitely suffered with the one's knees doing so badly. As much as they weren't my faves, it was a bummer that they couldn't even finish this leg of the race. He should have at least gave it a shot to try to find that bug thing though. Oh well. Onto the next leg. Go Linda and Karen!! :D :D :D :D :D

    I'm also glad the moms made it through to the next leg. Their bad luck better clear up, though!

    Colin is impressing me more and more each week with his racing, and disgusting me more and more with his attitude. I really can't stand him. And his little dog, too!

    Yay Chip & Kim! Glad to see them staying in the top half of the competition. The Mensa Twins managed to get through this leg without too many huge problems (although I loved one of them taking a header at the end - HA!).

    Rough leg for my favorites Charla & Mirna - hope they bouce back next week.

    The Children of God were totally meh as always.

    I am seriously starting to wonder how the Mensa Twins can even manage to get in and out of taxicabs; they are truly getting dumber every week.

    As expected, the 7-hour lead meant nothing because once again, everyone ended up stacked up at the airport. I would be really irritated if I had a 7-hour lead and ended up sitting there with everyone else 12 hours later. But then again, Colin is pretty much on Perpetually Irritated Mode anyway, tho I can understand why they got ticked over the taxi thing. Ordinarily it wouldn't have been a big deal, but given that C & C were holding the cab, Charla & Mirna picked the WRONG MOMENT to try that. And tho Mirna has her days when she could drive Mother Theresa to try out her backhand (she was in great form last night and I'm still expecting Charla at some point to just smack her one, tho I think Charla should have done the digging), I think she may be on to something when she basically accused Colin of being a psychotic potential wife-beater. I've gotten a bad vibe off him from day one; that boy ain't quite raht. And when you add in the fact that he and "his little dog" (thanks, guinevere! ) can't even seem to cross at a stoplight with a 6-hour lead without getting into some kind of arguement.....

    That is just NOT the way I wanted Marshall & Lance to leave the game. I was hoping for a last-place non-elimination round so they would have to use those oh-so-charming personalities (they were trashing Charla & Mirna on The Early Show this morning) to have to beg for money the way Linda & Karen did. But under the circumstances I don't blame them for throwing in the towel. They supposedly had been digging for 2 1/2 hours (which I suspect is an exaggeration) and once you realize you're in last place anyway and your knee is killing you for the third straight day, why keep trekking?

    Mirna isn't much use, as Charla usually does the work while Mirna is calling, "Run Charla!"

    I feels so sorry for the NYC brothers of Marshall and Lance when one who had the knee problem.

    The models....Brandon and Nicole....I don't know what to think of them. He looks rather like Christopher Atkins did in The Blue Lagoon!

    Colin and his partner, Christi, irritate me for some reason.

    Like the black couple alot. He should definitely be in the entertainment industry, as he has personality.

    I was shocked nobody knew what a scarab looked like!

    I KNOW!! And you know she's going as fast as she can, she's just got those little legs!! She can only go SO fast. I hope the battle for last place one of these days doesn't come down to a footrace between Charla/Mirna and someone else, because C/M aren't going to have a chance. Charla CAN indeed do anything anyone else can do, but the poor girl just can't run!!

    That is the one reason that I am convinced Charla and Mirna won't win this race. The end is ALWAYS a footrace. They would have to have an enormous lead over the 2nd and 3rd teams in order to win. I'm still crossing my fingers that they make it to the last episode, because I'd love to see them in the finish, but I just don't see them winning, no matter what they do.

    At this point, I'd be happy to have the Mensa Twins win if it meant Colin losing :D Actually, I just realized that there are 3 all-female teams left in the race, which is unusual. I would love to see 2 all-female teams make it to the final 3 (although I would be shocked if Colin & his little dog and Chip/Kim weren't 2 of the teams). Hopefully at least one of the girl power teams can make it to the final!

    I have this feeling that Colin/Little Dog :D are going to end up doing something really really STUPID and blowing it before the Final 3. I can just see them getting into a tight race for 2nd-to-last place and wasting time bickering at each other. I truly hope, if they are using this game as a test of whether or not they should get married, that once they see themselves on TV they will call it off. Still, they're not as bad (yet) as that couple on last season who finished 2nd -- the redheaded woman reminded me of the Nastiest Girl In The 5th-Grade Schoolyard, and her boyfriend (husband??) reminded me of Elementary School Bully Wannabe -- they really were a perfect match.

    Oh, how I hated them (and yes they got married after TAR). Colin & Little Dog (LD) are much better than they were!

    Ahh, yes - Kelly from last season. I can't remember the guy's name. They did have their moments, but I thought they worked as a couple. They both knew she was high maintenance and were prepared to deal with it.

    I still shake my head over Flo & Zach. He essentially carried her through the last couple of legs and he deserved the prize for worst partner ever. I know Ali & Kelly were bad, but at least they only whined too much - they did do some of the challenges without backing out. Flo did very little during the last legs and they had to switch challenges a couple of times because she couldn't finish.

    Oh, well. This year has gotten a bit nastier between the teams, but I think it's because each team is really has competitive natures.

    COLIN AND CHRISTIE ARE EVIL AND MUST BE DESTROYED.

    COLIN AND CHRISTIE ARE EVIL AND MUST BE DESTROYED.

    COLIN AND CHRISTIE ARE EVIL AND MUST BE DESTROYED.

    OK, now that I have THAT out of my system..... :D :D :D

    I just about DIED laughing when Christie honestly thought that putting her arm up in the doorway was going to keep Charla out of the airport, given the fact that her arm was about a foot and a half above Charla's head; then Charla just runs in under it like she wasn't even there. Absolutely hysterical. I was really hoping this was going to be a non-elimination round; Mirna's a pain, but I'm going to miss Charla.

    I guess now that the brothers are gone, Colin has taken it on himself to be the new International Incident In Waiting for this edition.... :sheesh: :sheesh: He and Little Dog are just beyond obnoxious.

    Personally, if I had to eat the equivalant of two dozen chicken eggs and then had to turn around and take a zipline 250 feet above a canyon, that ostrich egg would have ended up IN the canyon.....

    I'm glad to see Linda & Karen moving up, and I love how Chip & Kim are playing this; they're having fun, they're enjoying the experience, and they can actually get through challenges without throwing tableware at each other or bickering for 25 minutes solid.

    re. Brandon and "I don't know if it's in God's plan for us to win this or not". Ummmm... I am REASONABLY certain that God has better things to worry about then whether or not you two win a dang reality show!!

    This is from the "What to Watch" section of "Entertainment Weekly" :
    Tuesday, August 17, 10-11pm, The Amazing Race, CBS
    "Mirna, sweetie, that thing on Phil's finger is called a wedding ring. No matter how many times you flip your hair, it ain't happenin'."

    I too will miss Charla. I'm glad I won't have to hear Mirna shout 'Run, Charla, run' again or 'Go, Ha-bi-bi' I also enjoyed how Charla was resigned to do yet another eating contest (chocolate, caviar & Ostrich egg). With the exception of the capture the flag from the cow, did Mirna do any of the roadblocks????

    I couldn't believe Chip & Kim sat and enjoyed hospitality. Just seems odd since they are in a race and every minute may or may not count. Regardless, I'm rooting for them at this point.

    The only other team I like is the Bowling Moms, but I think the brunette mom needs to do more. Blonde mom does most of the roadblocks - i only remember brunette mom doing this last one.

    I couldn't believe they did that, either, but I love that they did it. They are obviously loving every minute of this game, and are taking time to savor the experience, especially now that they are in a place with great cultural significance for them. I much prefer their "let's enjoy the ride" approach to the psychotic "yeah, yeah, yeah, exotic foreign country, whatever, let's just get out of here" approach used by some of the other teams.

    I hate Colin. Seriously.

    I was hoping so much that his psychotic butt would get thrown in an African jail. Christie is displaying some very classic abuse victim behavior, apologizing to Colin and to us, the audience, for "her" outburst, when she did absolutely nothing wrong. Ugh. If only those dimwit twins hadn't stopped to help Colin/Christie's cab!

    Why do I suspect that we haven't heard the last of Colin even after this game is over? Why do I have a feeling that he's going to be the center of a Scott Peterson-like trial sometime in the next 5 years? Then we have Christie going off about how their problem is "We're two people who like to be in control and sometimes this creates conflicts"????? No, sweetie, YOUR problem runs MUCH deeper than that.....

    I'm very curious to see how Mensa & Densa manage to rustle up some money next week. "No problem," they said, "We're young and cute, we'll find a way." OK -- except I doubt very much that American Bimbo is going to play well in the United Arab Emirates.... :\ Now, if they were in Italy..... :D

    Until a couple of weeks ago, I didn't have a problem with Colin & Christie. There was some testiness and bickering, but they are under stress and it's normal to argue. This last incident was outrageous though. $100 was the rate that everyone had to pay - i could understand refusing to pay the $100 if there had been a deal for a bonus (i.e. you get me there 1st and I'll give you an extra $50). I could even understand not wanting to pay. However, Colin was outrageous in how he handled the situation and thinking that he was above the law. What's 50 bucks when you're competing for a lot more?

    I just finished watching Phil's video diary. He mentions that Colin is the most competitive guy he's ever met and that his intensity is amazing. He also mentioned that Colin is 24 - about time for him to learn to be less headstrong and more diplomatic in my opinion.
