Despite Nick and Vicki checking out the fast forward, it was only a slight delay and didn't really hurt them.

In fact, this was the first episode in a long while where no team made a major blunder throughout a leg of the race, which was why the blondes were never able to catch up to anyone, despite doing well.

I'm glad they went to St. Petersburg this leg of the race - I love that city so much! It was fun to see them go to places that I'd been to before.

Despite their stupidity, Nick and Vicki are kinda growing on me. I want them to stick around a bit longer, but we'll see if they can pull themselves out of the hole they got into this week. They're probably a good few hours behind all the other teams, but they could get bunched up again due to flights or whatever.

They finally figured out the way to do the paino challenge was to do 1 piece at a time. As I was watching I was saying that, cause otherwise you're running around trying to keep 3 classical pieces in memory and identify them...no chance unless you are a classical music afficianado(which I don't think anyone on the race is).

They are starting to grow on me a bit as well, was glad they didn't get philiminated.

I like seeing them go to places I have visited too!

Another good episode, I like Vikki and Nick as well. There really isn't a big bad team this go around. That dolt who is mean to his girlfriend is somewhat annoying.. but that's about it

I read that there was no speed bump, due to a mistake that was made during the previous leg. Apparently Nick & Vicky got the music detour answer right much earlier, but the guy giving them the clue mistakenly said no. Because it wasn't their fault that it took them so long, there was no speed bump. They should have said something about it during this episode, as I was wondering what had happened with that as well, until I saw the answer on a TAR forum that I read regularly.


So long Team YouTube. I liked them at first, but the son was increasingly whiny and not very nice to his dad in the last few legs. Quit yer bitchin - he did the best that he could.

^And that further confirms my suspicions that the non-elimination legs are not predetermined, but decided by producers based on who is coming in last and if they are a popular team (either good or bad as villains are good for ratings), or in this case they can cover their ass on a screw up.

Yeah, it's very possible. It was originally supposed to be an elimination leg. I'm sure they can tell during the filming process that N/V are good drama, and wanted to keep them around for another week.

I was sad to see Michael and Kevin go, I was hoping they would win.

I was wondering that too, Hewson. I really wondered how much time difference there was between them and the doctors.
