I still think that the starting line twist is really harsh. But well, just goes to show that the stakes are higher than ever, and teams really cannot afford to make a single mistake, they've got to stay alert every single moment! Other than that, I really love the premiere, they've got some cool tasks there. Love the Sushi Roulette!
Gary and Matt - Pinky and the brain!!!! Loved that description by Brian and Ericka (I think it was from them). They're working pretty well together, coming in first for the second leg. Other than the pink hair, I still don't get much from them but after all, it's still early.
Flight Time and Big Easy - Physical threats they are, but they're pretty nice people. Loved how they worked so nicely with the tourists in Japan. Just hope that the alpha male vibes don't come up.
Sam and Dan - I really like this team, love their enthusiasm in the race. They do quarrel and all, but that's part of being brothers I guess. They're close!
Lance and Keri - Lance annoys me but on the whole, they're not so detestable yet, so I'm still neutral. Wouldn't mind if they go home soon though, since I kinda like the rest of the teams lol.
Zev and Justin - I'm starting to like this team, it really was sweet of Zev to give his jacket to the bus driver. They're rather funny people, looking forward to seeing more of them on the race.
Megan and Cheyne - Well it's only been two legs, but it seems that this team is already surfacing as a threat. They've done pretty well for both legs. I'm liking them for now, they're nice to each other and work really well together. I hope that this continues, and I might root for them.
Maria and Tiffany - Great comeback at the duck-herding! I'm so glad that the first leg was an NEL, wouldn't have been happy to see them go. They're really playing the game though, lying and all that, not so sure I really approve of that but I'm still liking them, they're really tough nuts. Just look at Maria during the Roadblock! I was really impressed when she was done with the wasabi the second time and did not give up.
Mika and Canaan - They seem to be consistently bringing up the rear don't they. They're simply not aggressive enough, don't think they'll last. But I still really like them, they're so sweet and cute! I just love how Canaan carried the Japanese tourist all the way to the mat and kept asking if she was alright. That was really cute.
Marcy and Ron - Hmm, they seem pretty boring to me now. But they've got a fighting spirit!
Brian and Ericka - It was amazing how they went from last to sixth place in Japan! Thankfully, they weren't eliminated in Vietnam, that was just so close. I really, really love this team, they might shout at each other occassionally but their love and support for each other ultimately still moves me. Hope they do better next time!
Garrett and Jessica - Wasn't too sad over their elimination, since most of the other teams are far more likeable, to me at least. It must have hurt for Garrett though, seeing Jessica struggling with the ducks and not be able to do anything. Let's just hope he won't hold her accountable for that, she really did her best.
Eric and Lisa - It's terrible to go out that way I guess. But I admire how they took it. Sad to see them go, but well, the race is far more exciting than ever!
Great legs, all in all. We can see that the all-male teams are really dominating. But they're still pretty likeable so far, I'll keep hoping that it stays this way and the alpha-male thing doesn't come up.
