Ugh! Once again Ken and Tina came in 1st and we lost the comic book guys. I really can't stand that that bozo Tina keeps succeeding so well. You know she is going to win this thing with Ken and take half of it in their divorce as soon as they get home. So, I still don't have a favorite team. I know who I don't like but, I am having a hard time actually rooting for someone. I do sort of like Team Superbad but, that could just be because of their nickname. LOL! And, I'm still having a hard time with everyone's names. So, basically what I can contribute is that I want Ken and Tina gone Pronto! As for the rest, I just don't care. LOL! How about all of you? Any favorites emerging? For those of you who started to pick favorites last week, are they still your favorites? If you hated someone, have you changed your mind about them or are they still on the top of you list for those you would like to see gone?

I am so sad the comic book guys are gone and the divorcees stayed. See my thread about my feelings about the divorces (and ignore the fact I misspelled your name. sorry about that). I hate the divorcees, they are such whiners. I hate Terrence and Sarah, they are such whiners. Whats her name of Aja and whats her name is a troublmaker. She so totaly changed the story of the U-turn to make Starr look bad. I may start liking Starr and Nick just because eveyrone hates them so. really blondie, Starr threw your BRA off the balcony to win the game? I like the Mom and Son team. They get snippy when tired, but are okay with each other. Which means they are gone next week. The teams I like always go away.

How did Aja turn the story around? I didn't see her doing that at all. I don't think Starr needs any help to look bad. She and Nick do that on their own.

The way I saw it ( and I could be wrong, just be gentle when correcting me), is that as Starr and Nick were passing Aja and Co. on the bikes, Aja asked them to U-Turn the divorcees. They said they wouldn't uturn them but begged them to Uturn the divorcees. Now, everyone was passing everyone and you could only see backs, but I really don't think that was Starr talking. Plus, if Starr belived Aja was going to use the Uturn, why would they have had that discussion at the Uturn point? Starr is competitive. But, not nasty. Nick, I have some questions about since last week he promised to help somene and didn't. But, it is a RACE. You're allowed to pass people. You're allowed to get ahead within the rules of the game. I highly doubt Starr threw the bra over the balcony, because as she pointed out, what would be the point? Starr and Nick know you need the other teams other times. I doubt they would be deliberaly malicious to the other teams. Sarah and Terrence started the hate Nick and Starr thing because Starr allegedly ignored Sarah talking to her in the first leg. I think Sarah is out badmouthing and others who aren't as good a racers are going along with it to justify why they are not in the lead. This season has some of the most whining, victimized teams I have ever seen. It almost makes it no fun to watch. I like competition and seeing teams pass each other. This is jsut whine, whine, whine that the other teams are doing better.

I was so irritated to see Tina and Ken come in first again!! That Tina is so annoying!! I also felt bad that the comic book guys had to leave. It stinks that misreading the clue made them have a penelty so they were the last team. I don't like that one girl with the dark hair either....do you know who I mean? The one who wanted the other team to put the block on the divorcees? I don't have a favorite team either. Just ones I don't like:)

That would be Starr. Now that I've been thinking about it, she seems to have the biggest beef with the divorcees. Nick tried to smooth things over with them but where was Starr during that conversation? Not that it would have helped any but you would think she would at least try. And who was the one to ask Ty and Aja to U-turn Christy and Kelly? Starr was. It seems she's more out to get them than Nick is. Have to see more to really see if he feels the same as his sister.

I am irritated about Tina and Ken coming in first again too. It does suck that the comic book guys got the penalty which cost them their game but, the rules were made and supposed to be read and, if they just got away with it, it wouldn't have been fair for everyone else. And, I see your question was answered by Reesers! Thank you! I am playing catch up and you have been very helpful! You rock!

I'm still not sure if I have a favorite. LOL...this season is hard. I will say that I thought it was nice to see Marisa and Brooke do well. Except for the detour. If Marisa had the routine down, they may have finished right behind Ken and Tina. And yes, I'm ready for them to go as well! I'd like to see the Frat boys go. I've never liked them. I don't know who I want gone more - the Frat boys or Terence and Sarah. Toni and Dallas are kind of growing on me. There haven't been many mother/son teams. I don't even know how many guys would be willing to do this with their mom rather than a friend. You know, to keep up the cool, macho image they've built up. LOL...Dallas admits he can be hard on her but he's not overly pushy like others are. I knew Mark and Bill were in trouble when at the beginning of the show they were talking about how they may take a bit of extra time to read over the clues. You just knew something like that was going to happen.

Same here about not really having a favorite. But, I am really having a hard time keeping everyone straight. I am going to really have to pay attention this week. LOL! I don't mind the frat boys right now but, that could change. Toni and Dallas are under my radar right now so I don't have an opinion about them right now. Terrence and Sarah...well, if they could go right before or after Tina and Ken, that would be cool with me. LOL! That is really about all the opinion I have! LOL!

The blondes have to go dang it. As soon as the geeks hopped in a cab I told my wife they screwed up. Dumb, dumb, dumb. This may bring Tina and Ken closer it seems as well. They are talking like it as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I don't think I like the blondes too much either but, I really lost track of everyone this week and wasn't paying enough attention. LOL! As far as Ken and Tina, it might bring them closer right now...until they win the money and she files for divorce and gets half of his half of the winnings. LOL!

My favorite team is the mother son team, I too hate tina. I think she is too bossy and I am not surprised her husband cheated on her, I would too if I had to deal with that everyday. I really want to see the divorces go, I liked them at first but now I thinik they are too obnoxious with everybody else and they keep making too many mistakes.

Same here. My favorite team is Toni and Dallas also. While I don't think anyone deserves to be cheated on, Tina is really intolerable and he probably sought the silence of someone who wouldn't nag the crap out of him every second of the day.

I think you could be right about Nick and Starr being the most hated. At least until they get eliminated and then people will likely start hating Tina and Ken. LOL!

Give Tina her fifteen minutes, its the only gig she's got right now. After that she'll be like the villian and nobody will want to be near her. I'd sooner jump off a bridge that have to hang out with her, if she does win and get's the money it will be well worth the payoff to get rid of her.

LOL! I hear ya. I would also rather snap my own neck, stab out my own ear drums, and bang my own head up against a wall no less than 50 times, than hang out with Tina. LOL! Also, you are right that it would be worth the payoff to get rid of her. LOL!

The mother/son are Dallas and Toni. And, I sort of thought the same about them being gone weeks ago because from the first episode, she started out really bad. They started the race with her lagging behind everyone running from the start line. Dallas was in the front of the pack. So, to see them still in it is impressive since I thought for sure she was going to drag him down and they would be gone soon.

Hi Star, We are without a doubt on the same page. Tina is such a witch!! Why he puts up with that, I'll never understand. I would love to see him get fed up and sabotage the whole race for her. He needs to be a man and quit letting her pull him around by the ring in his nose. That would put some excitement into this race. Until then, it lacks in entertainment. Sorry, It's just not there for me. leenie

I hear ya Leenie...nice new avatar! I like it! I am struggling to keep my attention on this show this season. It could be better if I would set the laptop aside and just keep my eyes on the TV though. We'll see. It would be fun to see Ken sabotage the game for him and Tina. At some point, he has to get tired of her. I was tired of her in the first episode. How can he put up with her every day? LOL!

I don't have a favorite team yet either. But I'm sorta leaning towards the mother/son team. I think there name is Toni and Dallas. I don't like Ken and Tina either. I don't have all the names down packed yet, but I can remember Ken and Tina since they keep coming out first, ugh! The comic book guys were pretty cool. I hate the fact that they didn't read the instructions/directions right.

It seems a common theme that people are starting to cheer for Toni and Dallas. And, no one like Tina and Ken. Or, more to the point, Tina. LOL! I am also having a hard time with everyone's names so, I am right there with you.
