Just because you don't swear doesn't mean you can pull all this other BS and hide under the guise of "Good Christians"...give me a break...and please be next to be eliminated.
My thoughts exactly.

I was bummed to see the Paolo family go...but I didn't want the Bransens to go, so I was glad to see them stay. Dad and I always have soft spots for father/daughter teams.

At this point I would have to say that I like all the teams except the Weavers.

I'm glad I kept watching last night...I didn't realized that it was a 2 hour show. It was nice of the Paolo family to stop the Bransens before they stepped on the mat just in case it wasn't an elimination pit stop.

And correct me if I'm wrong but didn't some of the other team members go over to the Weaver children while their Mom was racing around the track???

Yep, I think it was the Bransen family.

Well you all know I've been trying hard to like the Weavers, but I have to say now I agree with Hewson. Their remarks are very childish.. and I realize they're a defense mechanism.. but it's not really helping their image.

I think it was the Godlewskis, may have been Branson, either way, after words of encouragement were offered, the Weaver kids insulted the people as soon as they walked out of ear shot.

I wonder if they're going to stick to the states now or perhaps come up to Canada?

I was kind of disappointed when they went back to the USA. It's too easy when you speak the language

they should like totally go bonkers and go to africa.

Maybe because there are getting to be fewer teams left, they'll do it, because less people, thfre, less money

......... heh, well, I don't count on it, but somehting like that would be cool, I guess.

Exactly. When the daughter gave the whole "live as Christians" thing I couldn't believe it. Even slanted editing can't change what they've said and done.

Yea I know. Bummer! Last night on E Talk Daily they had Lynn and Alex from the last Amazing Race and they counted down the three worst things that have happened so far on this Amazing Race.

3. The Weavers bad mouthing the other teams
2. The Paolo son telling his mother he was going to drown her in the river

and
1. They left the US and then came back!

The Amazing Race has shot itself in the foot this year, usually it is a highly rated series. This year it isn't even in the top 25.
They have lost a ton of viewers with the new format.

A non-elimination point I am soooo



I will say it again 'Anybody but the Weavers'

How can anyone not think that Utah is beautiful. I think the scenery we saw tonight was spectacular

I know who wins, want me to tell you fah?

Well, rumour has it that a certain team wins. I have know since the 2nd week and they are still around.

Let me think. If I tell you, it would ruin it. Nah, I will let you wait it out but this season is so boring. Zzzzzzzzzz!

But you're correct, the Weavers are just edited to be total wankers. What's with the kid yelling at the cyclers " you wish you were Lance Armstrong" Endless examples of them behaving like jerks and they think THEY are good people.
