Like breakup as in not be bf/gf or crying breaking up :lol: I couldn't watch after I found out they were eliminated.

I blame Michael afterall he decided to cheer for them for this very reason (that his team NEVER wins)  :neener:

Ok lets all say were sorry to Belle.  We're sorry.

Heh ... don't worry, I won't be too hard on Puddin.  Besides, she didn't want them to win either.

As for Ron & Christina's move ... sure, it wasn't ethical, but for heaven's sake it's a race!  You want to give a strong team (like Nathan & Jennifer) an advantage?  Huh?  I'd have done the same thing if I was in their shoes!

Right now, I'm thinking (and hoping) that Ron & Christina win.  GO RON & CHRISTINA!

And bye-bye, Nathan & Jennifer!  I hope Nathan slams the door on you on your way out, Jennifer!

I haven't watched this episode yet (thanks for being late, Amtrak!), but having read this thread, it sounds like the ... Best. Episode. Ever. Can't wait to watch my DVD!

Nate and Jen out? Who would have thought it?

It was quite good - the Speed Bump was quick but fun to watch, the RB as cool as it seems, and it was quite suspenseful  :tup:

I kind of knew the Chris&Ron spoiler was wrong because Mariana implied in her interview that Christina "isn't that innocent" and she will screw someone over, and since it hadn't happen till now I guessed that the final elimination will  be with blood on her hands.

anyway Ron&Chris arethe strongest team in the final and they deserve to win but rarely happens (see under seasons 2,3,5-9,11) ,I think  TK&Rachel will win. just because the last team I wanna win always wins.

Retard boi (still love the name).

By placement here is how it currently stands.

Tk & Rachel  3.40 Average
Ronald & Christina 3.60 Average
Nathan & Jennifer 3.70 Average and are eliminated
Nicolas & Donald 4.30.

Typically the 2nd best average wins.  Only Tyler & JAmes won while having the best racing performance (Flo & Zach and Rob & Brennan were tied with another team at the end).

Ok, my torrent for this episode should be done in twenty minutes.

DO I watch that, or wait for it to air live  (I love getting the east coast downloads before they actually air on the west coast).  What do I do.  Support live viewing (not to mention legal) and put up with waiting longer and commercials, or just dig the download, and say screw you CBS, and your 11 episodes, 1 cycle only pick up.

I don't think that the racing average is a good indicator about how well racers do. it  doesn't take in to consideration non elimination legs (or more accurately teams that were lucky enough to make it last there) and FF.

i also noticed that the second bunch of teams maybe ron/chris as well? were stuck a long time in customs

the second flight arrived 3ish and they got on the train at 5ish

lol mama yes it could have been either way, though on first viewing i thought break up gf/bf and then when i just watched it again it broke my heart to watch the pair of them with their business all out there on TV and Nate saying gosh darn it.
I'm sure that they thought if we win this then our relationship will be perfect no money worries etc

perfect example of the old adage don't come on the race to fix a relationship

Yeah, it I hate that.  Compared to 1st season's Lenny & Karyn they weren't that bad.  Boy did that suck to watch.

  Best episode!  Talk about a nail biter!   This was me   :jumpy: when the final 2 teams were racing to the pit stop.

I like all 3  final teams but I hope that Ron and Christina or Nick and Don win it. I'd like to see someone other than a  young/strong/couple win for once.

I also wonder about Ron's being nice.  If he has really changed or if it was that they had a nearly stress free day instead.  

From leaving Osaka, they knew (without question) and reinforced with each train ride, that they were #1.  I wonder if that was a big factor on his behavior.  I am curious if they built on their 45 minute lead after the train or not.  Usually teams familiar with the language do better then those who don't.  

THe other episodes he behaved better in.

Last week's episode, where they figured they were team #2, for almost the whole leg.

And Leg #5, where they thought they were in good position (though they did think TK & Rachel and Nic & Don could have arrived before them (they didn't know they missed their connections due to flight delays).

Or Peter & Sarah's breakup on the mat in TAR10.

Now that I've seen this episode, wow!!! Great episode until the end where the CKS Memorial was the pit stop. That man was personally responsible for killing many of my relatives and ruled Taiwan under Martial Law for over 30 years.

Sad to see JeNation go only because I don't have any more Death Stares this season. Maybe it was a good thing they never finished 1st in a leg. And I knew Viewing Parties were a bad omen!

IDK, Don & Nick's spat in reminds me of the BQ's spat in TAR11 final preview, maybe not a good sign for them? Still, I really don't care who wins but luv Don.
