Freaking, Fricking Frack! Ughhhhhhh! Fedge! Whew! Ok...I think I got that off my chest! Why? Not like I didn't know it was coming but, why her? And, not like I didn't know it would be her because, let's face it...I can't stand her and of course the first chance I get to see her eliminated, it is a non-elimination round of the race. Ok...so, the update is that Starr and Nick came in first place and Tina and Ken came in last place. So, Tina and Ken would have been eliminated this week if it weren't for it being a non-elimination round. Dang it! Ugh! I can't stand that woman. Could she have been any more imposing and annoying today? I was yelling at my TV and Ken to tell her to shut up when she was nagging Ken about how he should be doing the Green Taxi task. I can't remember if that was the name of it. Anyway, I really would have loved to have seen Ken tell her to shut the heck up. The more she nagged him, the more flustered he got trying to accommodate her and the more she actually ended up slowing him down. So, here's to hoping they don't make up the time next week and we get to see Ken and Tina go. The only two teams I like are Starr and Nick and Toni and Dallas. The rest of them all need to go but, not before I see Tina and Ken eliminated. How about the rest of you? Some of us have disgusted the very real possibility of Ken and Tina being the ones the get lucky enough to be eliminated on a non-elimination round and, that's exactly what happened. How disappointed were you all? I actually slapped my hand down on the table when it happened and it stung for about 5 minutes afterwards. So, for me...Ken and Tina cause me literal physical pain. LOL!

I know. Did it ever cross Tina's mind that he cheated on her with someone that was not a control freak? that he just wanted some peace and quiet without being told he was wrong every 5 minutes. And oh gee, that 30 minute penalty that terrence and Sarah had from last week mattered ever so much didn't it because of the (big surprise) airport bunch. Of course, they lost time because Terrence was channeling Tina. Over control much, bike boy? They were lucky that somehow the Frat boys managed to go from first to fifth in one task. What dweebs. Plus, there is a Race Rule that each team member must do at least 6 road blocks. It is to keep one strong member from doing them all while the other partner stands and watches. I don't think the dark haired one (I don't care enough about them to learn their names) has done any roadblocks yet. They are gonna be hurting soon on that Rule. Especially if there are really technical blocks left. Toni and Dallas showed how to work as a team. Everything Dallas said to his mom was encouragement. Even his suggestion how to spray better was not done in a "you're doing wrong" tone of voice, but as a truly helpful suggestion. they also did not waste time noticing how far along the other teams were. I hope they do well. The divorcees were bleah this week. But geez, could they just ONCE not talk about being divorced. I am sure they have other things in their lives that define them.

Lord have mercy on the frat boys once things go towards mental tasks. I am sorry but those two are sooo dumb in my eyes. I want them gone next actually. They whine more than Tina and her man do. But they are quieter about it. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

i hate to say anything like someone deserved to be cheated on but, yea...I think you are probably right. For once, Ken wanted to feel appreciated instead of nagged. Terrence really needs to shut up. He rewarded Sarah by letting her open the envelope for the next task because she "deserved it"? Really? Wow! Gee honey! Thanks for letting me open an envelope. You're so good to me! The Frat boys are getting increasingly more annoying. And, I didn't know about that rule. What is the punishment for breaking that rule? Or, does production just keep track of it and remind them that they need to fix the situation? I also like how Dallas helped and encouraged Toni. There is always a right way to suggest how to do something, and a wrong way. Dallas seems to understand the right way. I started off the season all prepped to count how many times the divorcees talked about being divorced and, gave up in the first episode. Yea...we get it. You are newly divorced. Probably because your hubbies couldn't stand your beyatchy butts. LOL!

I finally got my wife to watch it tonight. Of course she kept nodding off. But she'd weake up everytime she heard that whiny annoying bossy biotch talk. She now hates her as much as I do. I hope the task they get next time is nearly impossible to make up the ground. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

LOL! Yea...her voice could break glass. LOL! That's funny about your wife! I am practically begging and pleading with whomever and whatever that Tina and Ken can't catch up and do get the boot this week. LOL! But, it stands to reason that as much as we all despise her, she will not only survive, but win the game. I really really hope not. I want Toni and Dallas to win.

i was so mad too! that woman makes me made on every episode! as soon as they came into the pitstop...i said "i bet this is a non-eliminate round" and it was!! aaagh! have you also noticed that no matter what country she is in..she alwasy tries to use SPANISH to get the taxi drivers etc. to understand her?? it still irks me to think about how "everybody should have been thanking her for making the airline use a big plane instead" omg!! can you be any more full of yourself? im sorry but no airline, NONE, will change the size aircraft at a "customers request". ugh..just thinking about her annoys me. how the hell can Ken want to get back with that woman?

It's funny you say that. It may have been last week when she was getting in or out of a taxi and said something in Spanish. I thought HELLO! You're in a country that doesn't speak that language, you idiot. I'm surprised Ken wants her back. He must really LOVE that woman.

I did notice that she always tries to use Spanish to speak to everyone, no matter which country they are in. Idiot! LOL! I have had a feeling that Ken and Tina would get one of the non-elim rounds. In fact, that has been said a lot throughout these discussions by most Ken and Tina haters like myself. It really stinks. I would rather be cheering for someone having gotten the non-elim round than to be stomping my feet, banging my forehead and crying..."why? Why? WHY can't we get rid of these 2 pains in the butt?". And, yea...if anyone believed her that she was the reason they got a bigger plane, they are even bigger idiots that she is because that simply wouldn't happen for any old customer. Plus, I never saw her ask the airline to provide a bigger plane. Why would she do that when it could mean giving her a lead to have a smaller plane leaving the rest of the racers to scramble for a later flight? She didn't ask for it. The airline simply decided that they could benefit from a bigger craft, having nothing to do with Tina.

:::bangs head on desk::: Here's one of their idiot moves that I don't understand. If you're having so many problems with your taxi driver, why would you ask him to wait for you during the roadblock? If it were me, I would find another one and hopefully they would know where they were going. I think Ken knows that this is probably it for their relationship. He was showing more emotions than she was and even said that things weren't looking good at this point. I don't know what made them think that this race could help their relationship. I hope the Speed Bump next week really slows them down. And here's hoping there's not a task where the teams have to wait and everyone catches up.

I hope, for Ken's sake, he has seen the light and will be moving on after this. Not that I like him based solely on the fact that he cheated on her which raises questions about his moral character. But, she is so imposing and pushy that, I find it harder and harder to dislike him based solely on what he did. Here's to hoping that the Speed Bump has them so behind they can't catch up and we see them leave this week!

Hey Star, I missed most of the show but I did see the end. I was sooo happy when they were last and of course when they got their retrieve I was ready to give up. They don't deserve to win. Poor Ken is doomed no matter what happens. I really don't feel sorry for him because he should have walked out long before now. I guess he should be considered a battered husband. That woman is EVIL!! I'm with you, I like Starr and Nick and Toni and Dallas. We'll cheer them on. leenie

Hey Leenie! It was so frustrating to see Ken and Tina get the non-elim. Ugh! What sucks is that I can totally see them keeping themselves from elim this week too, making it to the next non-elim but being last in that one too, getting the non-elim and the penalty task and making it through that one too all the way until the end and then winning the whole thing. I really hope not. Really hope not. Ugh! And, I think you are right...Ken is a bettered hubby. At least verbally. She is so very freaking annoying and imposing. But, I am staying positive and hoping to see them eliminated this week and to see Starr and Nick and Toni and Dallas in the end.

I don't like the frat boys, but when they came in before Tina and Ken I was cheering!! Then it was non-elimination and I couldn't believe it!! NO freakin way!! You are right, Tinas nagging just flustered Ken as that other guy who is with Sarah kept nagging her! I am liking NIck and Starr too. I didn't start out liking Starr, but after last night, I really like them. Are Toni and Dallas the mom and son? If so, I really like them too. It was smart of Nick and Starr to bring gloves in their bags and get them out to do the ironing! That one frat boy was so funny how angry he got with the ironing. I would love to see Tina gone next week!! Poor Ken, he isn't bad but he is with her.

Cute new Avatar! Love the pink (rose) kitty! I am hoping, wishing and praying that Tina and Ken go this week. I enjoyed watching Dallas and Starr flirt. LOL! I hope to see those two teams in the end together. I prefer Toni and Dallas over Starr and Nick but, if either of them wins it, I will be fine.

I originally liked the frat boys but, they are a bit too cranky with one another for me. But, I would rather see them stay than Tina and Ken. LOL!
