Gosh, i know it sucks for some that Chad and Stephanie overslept but still managed to get into Oman anyway together with the other teams. But seriously, you gotta give them props for being cool headed for the entire leg! I don't know why, but it seems when you're cool and calm, you generally do really really very well. (Nat and Kat ahem, although they're in almost last.. I really had no idea how they still managed to be so calm)
I think my favourite moment of the season so far, is when Chad and Stephanie's relationship status changed from Newly Dating to Engaged. I mean, this is the first time ever that happened right? And they did it at such a precise way and moment which i think was really appropriate and i got teary a little. It's just so sweet how TAR can change lives and bring people closer together.. and a big big reason why i love TAR more than Survivor because you don't often see relationship like that on Survivor except with maybe.. Romber.
I was rooting for Chad and Stephanie the entire time after i was so shocked they arrived at the Roadblock first and Chad even completed first! Frustrated i was when they fell to second place for Detour.. and when Jill and Thomas's faces were shown first on the screen running towards Phil.. i was still hoping for a penalty because i thought something was amiss... AND GUESS WHAT?? JILL AND THOMAS GOT A FREAKING PENALTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was clapping my hands in excitement and awe and nothing beats seeing Chad and Stephanie arriving at the pitstop within the 30 minutes time frame and won a TRIP to Belize! How apt that it could be their honeymoon trip!!!
The entire leg might be very predictable for some, especially if we know who's not in the final three, but the fact that the 1st and 2nd place teams and the 3rd and 4th place teams kept swopping positions was exciting enough for me! The Roadblock, although was the second repelling-style challenge this season, was really cool! I never knew Oman was this beautiful! Awesome much! I wished somebody did the other side of the Detour though, it would have been really good to see a traditional Oman wedding and feast being made.. but oh well, you can't always have everything you want.
Love the race so far, didn't expect myself to be rooting for Chad and Stephanie at all from the beginning of the race. Love Brooke and Claire, shocked that Nat and Kat were lagging behind the entire leg, getting abit annoyed by Nick but still love Vicki.. and saddened by the fact that Gary and Mallory were eliminated. I just wished that on the 3 legs they got 2nd, they managed to win a leg.. could have been more memorable for such a nice team like then.
Until then, FINAL 5. 2 all-female teams and 3 couples still in the race. This race can't get any better.
But what's up with Double U-TURN. I mean okay, 2 teams instead of one will be in trouble... but that means actually only one team will not be affected? At the final 5?? -_- Not fun at all. Maybe it will play out to be good. But seriously i don't think so.. but i shall not think too much about it until i really see it then.
