I kinda felt bad for Linda and her husband, you knew from the beginning they were doomed.

You do have to wonder why they were on, because it was obvious she was in no condition to do any sort of physically challenging tasks. Felt bad for her husband, I think he would have been pretty game with another partner.

Anyways, they were probably relieved to be let loose. The marijuana crop was close to harvest time




Now, the two blonde stewardesses? gotta go next.

I'm disappointed in the bimbo stewardesses. You'd think they'd be used to the ins and outs of travel. Apprently not, or not these two anyway. They just might be the next on the chopping block.

I agree. In the first episode, one of them was saying how they had an advantage 'cuz they were used to traveling, yada yada. Then they couldn't even read a train schedule. Then got lost in Sunday's program

A U2 forum and nobody mentioned the Achtung Baby reference in the last episode? What's wrong with you people?

They had me laughing so hard, I was crying....get a stick, carry a stick, or whatever instead of getting the wood carving with the clue.

I noticed that too.

Once again this week, another pair left that I was glad I wouldn't have to keep watching. The Squabbler's last week and this week, Linda and her husband. They were painful to watch, especially Linda with her constant crying, physical struggles, and hints that her husband can be pretty hard on her. This was one of the rare times where I felt that someone was holding back because he knew he was on camera. Based on her comments "Oh no, he'll hate me" and such, I have a feeling he doesn't treat her very well in real life. A good hint of that was when she expressed her relief that he wasn't mad and he said "It's not over."

I'm glad they're gone. I don't like it when people with such serious issues appear on these shows.

^I agree...why do they choose contestants like that anyway? What a waste of time!

Well, it's a tradition that this show is always marred by cannon fodder that have no chance at winning...and it's one of its biggest downfalls.

Now, a show like Survivor, they've done a great job having few (or no) easy targets in their recent seasons, nearly everybody having a viable chance from the outset. I just don't see what the point is of casting poorly educated, no travel experience southerners (some of them outrageously overweight)...it takes out so much of the suspense. Charla/Mirna were also a poor choice since you know they'd never have much of a chance in most seasons given the running around required in finale episodes (and of course, the two seasons they were on were very limited physically...rigged, anyone?)

On the other hand, last season had the most even field ever and was also the least interesting season of the bunch, even Family Edition had more drama.

I enjoy a more fairly matched group of contestants and find intense competition more entertaining than watching weak couples with no chance at all fail so quickly. It's really interesting watching the deaf son and mother team. I'm actually rooting for them!

I'd say after they got stuck in Amsterdam until the following morning and never encountered any other teams, that they knew it was over.

Yeah, it was a pretty bad mistake on their end. As soon as they were told that they wouldn't be able to leave Amsterdam until the next morning, I knew they'd be eliminated. I guess they assumed that even though they were banking on making the next flight out of Amsterdam, that they would get to the destination faster than the 9pm flight. Sucks when those kinds of flight mistakes get you eliminated. I liked them, even though they weren't shown all that much. Seemed like they had a great attitude about everything.

I really liked the Dracula task - that looked like it would have been fun.
