Okay, I finally finished the first episode!
What I can say is even though they took a TARA4 Indonesian leg for this leg, they improved the leg such that the other Detour is at least not the fail Cemetry Detour in TARA4 and the selling of the noodles Detour was at least interesting.
I like that each team got a different number for the amount they have to count for the briefcase and they can't just give the answer to each other. Besides the fact that the counting of the money doesn't have anything to do with seeing the sights and sound of Indonesia, at least people now know that Indonesian currency are freaking big and hard to handle. (I have problems with it ALL the time!)
I also like the fact that they had a Roadblock immediately in Australia, but thought that it shouldn't be counted as a Roadblock because the time you gain from the task is deflected from the flight.
Ann Marie and Tracy - <3333333333333333333333333 NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE MY LOVE FOR ANN MARIE AND TRACY.
Sam and Ranae - Glad they won the first leg, that they're not dumb blondes but BQ's V2.0
Matt and Tom - They just crack me up and you know I rarely root for All-male teams but hell, they're fun to watch and they're so real. If they got more edit I might love them as much as Ann Marie and Tracy!
Alana and Mel - They could have a chance to win if they don't ever/stop freaking out.
Anastasia and Chris - Dysfunctional couple. Mark my words. They can either be very physically fit (maybe due to Chris) but one mistake will cause them the race.
Richard and Joey - They belong to the league where they seemed so competitive and seemed to have it in the bag to win it but you have no idea why they're in the back pack most of the time, due to some silly stupid mistakes.
Jeff and Luke - Seems like a nice team, but lack the edit. Hmm.
Ryot and Liberty - Another team whom you know has no chance of winning, not at all physically fit and stressed out easily
Mo and Mos - If they stand a chance to win, i'll shave my head.
(Maybe not, but you get what I mean)
Tyler and Nathan - My most hated team of the lot. They're just there for the competition and totally not appreciative of the culture and tradition to the places they've visited. They're boring, boring... and very boring. Sadly, they stand a high chance to go FAR due to the physical competitiveness needed for the race. But hell glad I am they're in SIXTH for leg 1. BAD TRACK RECORD.
