The blondies made a HUGE mistake when they left their passports et al in the changeroom at the pool. If that had been anywhere else in the world their stuff would have been stolen. There must have been a crew member watching the bag to make sure it was there waiting for them when they returned.

Interesting episode last night. I loved seeing Russia - one of my favourite countries! Quite surprising that they pulled the TBC on us - I don't think they've ever done that this early in the race before. I was so engrossed that I didn't notice the time.

I have no idea who will be Philiminated now that the leg is continuing on into next week. I thought it would have been Fran & Barry, but since they all got on the same flight to Moscow, and so many teams had taxi drivers who didn't know where the trolley location was, it's all up in the air.

I absolutely love the Nerds and the Hippies. The other teams are growing on me too, but I still hate Lake/Michelle and Eric/Jeremy. Gah. So annoying. Lake's comments about hoping they would not go to Russia were awful. His attitude alone is deserving of him getting Philiminated.

The car racing next week looks so awesome! I'm so jealous of all the fun stuff they get to do.

MoniKendra's comments that all she knows about Russians is they smoke and drink a lot was insightful as well.

I have a question, you know the mother and daughter team that did the roadblock where the Mom couldn't dive. Can teams switch players in moments like that? I felt so bad for the poor mother, I was just curious whether her daughter could've switched right there and went to do the roadblock.

Nope - no switching allowed. Once you say that you're gonna take the roadblock, you have to complete it yourself. I can't really remember if there's been an instance where someone hasn't completed it because it was too difficult / they were too scared or whatever.

I felt a bit bad for her too, but once you make your decision you have to stick with it, suck it up, and try your hardest. It's a race, and you didn't sign up to have a nice and comfortable trip around the world.

When Romber faced the challenge of eating 10(?) pounds of meat, they gave up and were given a four hour penalty.

Ah yes, now I remember! That was a great epsiode!

Rob was pretty clever getting all those teams to give up behind him so they would be guaranteed not to be Philiminated that week.

I like how in the first episode Joe(mojo) called Lake "Scott Peterson." Other than that I don't really like them. I do like the nerds & hippies, and I really don't actually mind the frat guys. They remind me of some of my brothers friends, who,while they don't actually contribute towards making the earth turn, they are not really bad guys!! I would like to see the hippies win. I want the arms that one of the pinks has...holy crap!!
Raven - I think Canucks should be allowed in too!!

Ok, everyone remember that this was not a non-elimination episode. Every year we forget how many non-eliminations there were, they only get two. It seems they have gotten around that by extending the legs. I have wondered if they make these decisions on the fly depending on how the flight schedules work out since they can't control flight delays. Or is it an editing decision if they want to help a team in danger of being eliminated stay in the race so they can help with the ratings.
