I just don't understand what advantage there is to outright giving other teams the answers. Don't these people realize that every team is their opponent, not just the Cowboys?

The advantage for this specific episode was to get rid of the team that posed the greatest threat to winning in the end. That team was the Cowboys. I'd say that's a major advantage not having them around anymore.

Personally, I dislike giving other teams answers and I wish it wasn't allowed, but that's how the show rolls.

This. It's ridiculous how much people have been helping other teams out this season, and NOT u-turning anyone. It doesn't matter how far ahead you think you might be, or that you're trying to be "nice" or whatever. It's a race, and it's to your ADVANTAGE to u-turn someone so you're guaranteed to NOT be eliminated.


The editing of Zev & Justin doing the fondue detour was interesting. Before the commercial break their pot was almost done, yet when the commercial break was over, it was half full again. Glad they managed to power through to finish it and win the leg.

Why were they "the greatest threat"? They had come in close to last on almost every episode.

True, they weren't having as good of a season.

But their reputation from their last stint was obviously fresh in everyone's minds, when they dominated quite a few legs.

Get Gary & Mallory out of next week's episode and we're guaranteed a great winner. Three highly entertaining/strong/likeable teams along with the WTF? craziness that would ensue on the internet if Kent/Vyxsin actually won.

I agree and would love to see Gary and goofy Mallory getting the boot Sunday. They are so stupid and the faces Mallory makes should embarrass her entire family. What idiots. That would then leave some fun competition in the 3 remaining teams. I wouldn't want to see Kent & Vxysin win though. What the heck is wrong with Kent lately? He's become weak terribly negative and totally effeminate (is that how it's spelled?!) it's like he's taken a back seat and is allowing and expecting Vyxsin to be their strength & make decisions for them all by herself. I mean nice of her telling Kent to get on that wheeled luggage cart but he was a total ass in my book for actually doing it and letting his gf wheel his ass around!!!! Jeez!!!

I swear if the win they're gonna pull a Crying Game reveal on the mat and show the world that they are really Kim and Victor, and Kent has indoor plumbing while Vyxsin has outdoor plumbing.

I'm sorta pissed that the show got pre empted with all the hooplah of Bin Laden's death news. I would have rather watched Amazing Race. Too much historic news having taken over the news airwaves all weekend.

Advantage to being on the east coast.
Show aired here well before the Bin Laden hooplah began.
Pleased with the way the episode ended.

So glad that Kent & Vyksin are gone. I didn't mind her so much, but good LORD does Kent ever annoy me. He kept saying he was thinking positively or whatever, but then the next second, negativity would be spewing from his mouth. As long as Zev & Justin are still in it, I'm happy!

I think Kisha and Jen really like the Globetrotters.

I thought there would be 2 more episodes, but it looks like they're condensing it all into one last 2 hr finale. Should be good!

The show aired here at 9 after all the breaking news. Missed the first 15 minutes, but caught the rest. Bye bye Kent & Vyksin They were bugging the crap out of me, especially Kent.
