Two part episodes basically eliminate unnecessary nonelimination episodes. For example, they probably would've had an elimination last week and a nonelimination this week. Instead, they simply extended a leg and gave us a nonelim episode (but not really a pit stop) followed by an elim episode.

Personally, I would be glad if the only nonelimination point in the entire race was the pit stop between the first and second half of the season finale. Nonelimination points often result in the viewers having wasted an hour of their time if the next episode bunches the teams together again, whereas at least the "to be continued" episodes make it so that what a team did in the previous episode will actually matter.

Pretty good episode tonight. I was so worried the Nerds were gonna get eliminated from the previews, but thankfully Lori figured out the Roadblock before the others.

Hippies are beginning to get a bit annoying now. They are funny, but it seems as if they're constantly mugging for the camera, which is starting to grate. What was with the Bowling Mom's t-shirts? Do they know the Moms from Season 6 (I think that's the one they were in)?

Didn't really care who would be Philiminated between the Pinks and Ray & Yolanda.

Lake continues to piss the hell out of me. What an arrogant, self -centered, prick-headed little shit. That's about as polite as I can put it.

I got a kick out of Monica claiming to not be another dumb blonde but then couldn't pronounce Palermo. And Lake complaining about being bunched together on the plane at first and then after he finds out they are on a different flight, he starts freaking out.


Frankly, I don't think the producers want people who know how to travel, I think they want wacko personalities who might lose it a the drop of the hat, great tv I s'pose. And I still think the producers pick and choose the non-elimination or extended pit stop legs based on how close the groups are or who is going to be eliminated. They aren't dummies and want to have certain teams carry on, either favourites or bad guys. The contestants never know when non-elimination legs are coming so in a sense the producers have the latitude to save a team if they feel like it.

Really enjoyed this episode. Love the hippies and the frat boys. They are so easy going and funny. Glad to see the nerds didn't get eliminated. Who will Eric and Jeremy flirt with now?

And of course her oh so intelligent boyfriend asking for plane tix to "Palomino".

I can't wait for next week when Monica is crying and throwing a hissy fit that she can't do it..is it just a coincidence that her name rhymes with Flo?

I wonder if Eric & Jeremy are going to be mad with Lake & Michelle for using their Roadblock

^ You mean, yield. It was a smart move for Lake/Michelle to use it since the only team behind them (to their knowledge) was the Pinks.

As for the producers determining when the nonelimination points are due to who will be eliminated, that's very unlikely. The US government would crack down hard if it was found that the producers were fixing a game show. Shows like Survivor plan out how long the series will run and on what days certain challenges or the merge will happen, partially to have a schedule to goby but also to have proof that they didn't try to alter the competition.

Lastly, the show is moving to Wednesdays at 8 PM if you didn't already here. Starts this Wednesday, in fact.
