I'm happy to hear about a second season.

I remember seeing Anthony Bourdain get his ears cleaned in Chengdu before and I don't remember it bothering him much.  Lisa & Karen reacted like they were being tortured by the ear cleaner at the speed bump.

I liked that both detours were challenging in different ways.  Seeing racers brought to their knees from the spicy food showed how difficult it really was.

One of my favorite moments was seeing the cab driver take a bathroom break.  I don't remember seeing that before on any other race.

Well I am glad that it skipped for someone else besides me. I thought it was my computer. I will try again later this week to see if they got it fixed. The last place team was quite suprising. And you are right, 3 NELs in a row is too much....but they only started with 10 teams so maybe they are making up for that.

Charlie & Rachel definitely had a rough day.

That's putting it mildly...lol! They have done so well up to now, too. It just goes to show how quickly one's standing can change. Rachel did not handle pressure well this week.

But, everyone goes forward one more time! Next week is bound to be especially tense, though, since one of the teams is now certain to be eliminated...

Well I tried watching it again this morning. The first time, it worked fine till about the 33 minute mark and then switched to ICN News. Started it a 2nd time and it played all the way through.

Rachel just has too much of a quick temper. She lost her cool at the first task and never regained it. They went from 1st to last on the leg because of it. It's just that simple.

I did love Charlie's comment..........Pandas 1, Rachel 0

3 NELs in a row? That must be Amazing Race's first. :lol:

Well, at least it kept a larger audience who knew the remaining 5 teams glued to the TV each week if their fave team isn't eliminated. :duno:

I didn't remember it, so I re-watched it, and Louie & Michael took their bags with them up to the Fast Forward.  When they came back down, they didn't see the taxi driver and they assumed that he went to use the restroom, but there's no clear footage of him going into one or coming from one.  He just jogs back from inside the complex. 

With Charlie & Rachel, their taxi driver left them in the cab and we see him coming out of the restroom.

The closest thing that I can remember to three straight NELs is three NELs in four episodes during TAR5.  I especially remember Kevin & Drew mentioning it back then.

I would say the producers took a huge risk here. It would have been a lot less interesting to watch if the first team not eliminated had failed to catch up and just lagged further and further behind. This was specially likely on leg #9 where there were no bunching points.

And it was actually pretty close. If Charlie and Rachel had not crashed as hard as they did then Deepak & Naresh would have been hopelessly last again.

I guess that Charlie and Rachel got a really really bad taxi driver from the bamboo to the bus station. I found it pretty unbelievable that that was when Naresh and Deepak passed them and actually got an earlier bus. Charlie and Rachel had absolutely no good luck that leg.

My video was messed up too and it kept skipping. It seems it is easier to watch in a couple of days. I think that maybe too many people try to log onto the site and watch. The ICS player gets really messed up.

As for the episode.......anohter topsy turvy one. They did have an elimination this time.

If you read my post that you quoted......I said the video was messed up......so NO, I didnt watch it. I just listened to it every now and then, between skips.

Usually you can fix the skipping by refreshing
