Thank God for the return of the Speed Bump!!
I think Mallory has thanked him enough already :P

The eat task of the detour was awesome and teams who used this option lose time. That's the game, i'm happy that it's not an NEL. However, that mean that the remaining legs are all elimination.

Funny thing to note: Jen & Kisha and Kent & Vyxsin are the only teams left that haven't won a leg. With Kent & Vyxsin being the only team left that has never won a leg in their entire carreer.

In my opinion, the eating detour was poorly planned.   Detour choices should be difficult, but not impossible.  A success rate of ZERO indicates an impossible task, in my opinion.  The option to take another trip around the wheel should have been available.

I think the challenge producers got exactly what they wanted: teams that would fail&bail. I can't remember very many Detours with misleading titles: long-hard, quick-easy, etc.

Nobody has mentioned that "Chim Chim Cher-ee" made an appearance in the RB clue.  "A sweep is as lucky, as lucky can be."  Thanks, Peach, even if most of us overthought your clue.

When I heard Mallory say that, my first thought was that I hoped that wasn't something she learned to do on the beauty pageant circuit.  :(
She doesn't look anorexic though so probably not.

I agree. They should have let them finish it within 3 rounds. If they can fnish within one round, good for them, within two rounds.. a least they gained some time for being quick.. 3 rounds.. at least they got to finish it! It's really poorly planned. And they had a cake as well??? WTF.

Happy i am... i was nearly in tears when they're last. I knew it was going to be a NEL somehow.. but still, that didn't put the worry off me.

THANK GOD FOR NEL.

I really hated that task too. It seemed unnecessary and too hard. I'm not sure why they were limited to such a short time. I think DrRox is right, there wasn't really a Detour since one was a dead end. It reminds me more than anything of the famous TAR7 eating roadblock. Both of those tasks do not seem at all possible to complete.

The new Ford Focus was equipped with a navigation system that no one seemed to use.  Did Ford bring the cars from the US and not program the navigation system with an Austrian Map?  Were teams told not to use the navigation system? B:)

I believe it was pointed out in the Austria thread that production had it programed to the WRP headquarters.  :lol3:
