They took taxis the next two legs...

I'm starting to think that this leg might be another elimination, leaving us with 2 back to back NEL's again, or Leg 10 elim, Penultimate - NEL, Speedbump on the final leg???
Or this is a TBC with a mislabeled Pit Stop
Nope.  There's supposed to be some sort of "mat meltdown" in this episode, so I think there'll be a Pit Stop tonight.

Isn't the mat meltdown already finished?

I thought the mat meltdown was when Margie fainted. But there might be more drama coming still.

Anybody think this could be a pouch?? That's Cara, and we know she was carrying the pouch in the taxi...



Yeah, Cara has the pouch on her waist. The only non pouch team I have seen in the pics is K/J and Kisha has no shoes either, when they are running down the street.

I dont remember if it is one of Phil's blogs or a CBS promo, but it said that two teams yell at one another for 45 minutes at/after the mat.

Thats the first time I've heard about the yelling part.

It was one of those future things to come, Puddin. I have no idea if it is this episode.

I think Mark & Michael will be one based on the preview at the end of the last episode.  I wonder if the other is Kisha & Jen or Jaime & Cara?

I don't believe the "meltdown" was ever attributed to a specific episode. I think it will be up to us to know it when we see it, LOL.

Well.  Guess I'll never listen to Zap2It ever again.  I'll just to hear what TV Guide says.

Yet another exciting episode.  Here are my thoughts:

The Broken Teeth Detour seemed to be the easier one, if done right.  But I'd have probably been scared into the Broken Record Detour due to how luck-based it sounded.  At least the karaoke was straightforward.

The Roadblock?  I'd have had a partner do it.  I'm not a handyman at all.

The teams:

Margie & Luke: Very good leg.  Margie turned it out at the Roadblock and the Detour, and she was the primary reason they won the leg.  That's three legs for them now, tying them with Ronald & Christina for most legs won by a parent/child team.

Jaime & Cara: Jaime, CALM DOWN!  Not all locals can speak English!  And you even seem to have a problem with the ones that do!  Oh, well.  Thanks for at least being self-aware enough to admit you turn into a "lunatic" when the language barrier rears it ugly head.  Cara, you're still a lovely, lovely person.  Don't ever change.  Ever.  Smart move going back for your bags immediately, and congrats on second place.  Well done, ladies.

Tammy & Victor: At this point, their edit is screaming fourth-place-finishers or winners with their "always happy, happy, happy!" edit.  That said, they ran a decent leg, though Victor could've ruined it for them due to the shoddy propellor work.  Little did he know, Kisha & Jen and Mark & Michael would make even bigger errors. . . .

Kisha & Jen: Whew!  Don't ever scare me like that again, girls!  You did all your tasks well, but next time someone suggests going back for the bags, GO BACK FOR THE DAMN BAGS!  Just in case, of course.  You're very lucky Mark & Michael not only made the same mistake, but made an even worse one.  Step it up, ladies!

Mark & Michael: Forgot your bags at the Roadblock?  Strike one.  Bartered items in lieu of cab fare?  Strike two (though I admittedly didn't know it was against the rules).  Did it yet again?  Strike three!  I was surprised you got a penalty THAT hefty, but I'm glad, too, as it saved Kisha & Jen!  Now I can only hope you don't overcome the Speed Bump next week.  Being over three hours behind everyone else, you'd better hope for an overnight bunching point, or you guys are so toast.

Very suspenseful episode.  But I'm gonna go ahead and call Mark & Michael being out next week.  They just don't have it in them to overcome that Speed Bump unless they get really, really lucky.

As for my team feelings:

LOVE: Margie/Luke, Jaime/Cara, Tammy, Kisha/Jen
LIKE: No one
NEUTRAL: Victor
DISLIKE: Mark/Michael
HATE: No one

Next week's Luke/Jen drama?  Looks exciting!  This might pinpoint the true villain of the whole race, depending on whom the editors try to make look right.  Can't wait!

Okay so I've surrounded myself with easter candy and am going to re watch since I totally feel I missed this entire episode thanks to some idiots that distracted me.

Any requests?

I think BVM is making up times and he assumes since the last episode was two weeks ago, we've forgotten all about the penalty to Mark & Michael. Silly man!

I keep thinking about Phil's speech to M/M....about the rest of the penalty being enforced on the start. I guess Phil had a plane to China to catch and didn't want to hang around.

Sorry Puddin. Jumped the gun today.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!
