I was quite surprised that they incurred that much of a penalty. I've never seen a team get penalized that much at once.

Didn't Beantown Rob (and then several subsequent teams) get a 4 hour penalty for not eating the 43 lbs of various meat?

I don't think they pay attention too much!

I'm growing weary of those little stuntmen. Something about them just irks me.

Unbelievable the amount of penalties they've racked up. I wish they'd just get eliminated already.

What is it with contestants on this show leaving their passports behind? I'd glue mine to me if I could, I never let it out of my sight when I travel because I know what a hassle it is to get one replaced when you're away from home in another country.

Yup. If you chose to skip doing a roadblock, it was a 4hr penalty. I'd assume those rules are still in place. Rob was very clever in getting others to follow him and not do it as well, so as to guarantee he wouldn't be eliminated.

I had to laugh yet once again when the brothers got those penalties. It was obvious they had the money, but they didn't want to use it all in one fell swoop to pay that one cab.

I'm seriously hoping that next week there won't be any bunching due to flights or hours of operation, so that they won't have a chance to catch up. It's high time they were gone. They annoy me SO much.

as much as I like Luke and his Mom...it looked to me like Luke was the pushy one last night! hopefully someone will play back some of that to them so they can see who elbowed who and just get on with the race

I also think Luke was in the wrong. Jennifer (or was it Lakisha??) may have been trying to scoot in front of him - but he threw his elbow up and almost caught her in the face. If the elbow connected they would have been booted out of the race. There is a very strict non-contact rule. Then the second time Jennifer was obviously getting to the box first. Luke ran right into her - again not cool. Momentum may have been the cause that time though.

As for the pitstop - it did seem Lakisha was having a laugh at Luke - but that crazy-as-bat-shit Margie just went overboard. To compare the plight of deaf people to black people seemed a bit daft.

I think Luke and Margie may not have liked what they saw last night.

Great TV though!

I think the brothers kinda new they were going to be eliminated, they were kinda just enjoying this leg instead of hurrying.

I do think Luke was a little pushy and that momentum caused the second incident.

But I thought it was stupid of Jen to call him a bitch when he can't hear to begin with, and then to laugh at him when he was signing, totally not cool.

I think the "bitch" comment was similar to saying "fucker" ....only nicer

And lets not forget that they are the ones who used the Uturn, they aren't nearly as nice a team as they think themselves to be.

When he said Jen pushed him "twice", I mean how ridiculous, he could certainly argue the first one, but the second she was clearly at the clue box first and he plowed her over.

Ah. . .deep. You always make me smile

Being deaf doesn't automatically make you a nice guy.

I'm pretty convinced they were not "laughing at his signing".
