FINAL 5??? FROM A FIRST LEG NON-ELIMINATION?? They beat Maria and Tiffany as well as Jet and Cord's record of a first leg NEL/TBC and surviving till the FINAL 5.


They might have even done better than the international teams that were saved on the first leg. Anyone want to check?

Nope, Sandy and Francesca from TARA 1 came in second overall. :lol:

Just a record. Bill and Cathi nearly come in top 3 placings for the past 4 legs, had they paid their truck driver... they would have checked in 3rd on the leg Amani and Marcus were saved by the NEL.

GO MA AND PA! They're due to win a leg!! :yess:

So happy they're still in the race! Not that I think they'll get 1st if they didn't get uturned, but I hope they beat Ernie & Cindy on the next leg!  :jam: :jam:

I don't want to over-analyze, but during the dancing Roadblock I feel that the editors gave lots of emphasis to the difference between the stories of how Bill & Cathi and Ernie & Cindy met.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I'm not sure about that. I think that's just how the conversation went. Bill & Cathi obviously have a long history and a big story to tell, and Ernie & Cindy don't quite yet!

They are really great people with a great relationship. I love the way they raced supporting each other and staying positive. I wish they had gone farther :'(

Bill and Cathi for allstars :jam:

I hope someone asks in an interview why they didn't switch detours for the body building task.

Today is a sad day... :(

I hope there is an all-stars soon, and hope they accept the offer to do it!

Finally, I'll have to do something to be happier... Someone for a hot dog? :)

Not gonna lie, I tend to root against racing teams who've come in last during a non-elimination leg at some point, but they totally won me over episode after episode! Will miss them!

This was the strongest performance of an "older" team ever in an Amazing Race. I know that Gretchen and Meredith made it to 4th place in AR7, but they got many breaks on the way. Bill and Cathi got the breaks of surviving last place in a NEL and a TBC, but their physical fitness was very impressive. Cathi's mental acuity was also pretty impressive. The other older teams to be considered here are Ron and Marcy in AR15 and Barry and Fran in AR9, but neither team had the performance of Bill and Cathi.

I am really saddened by their elimination. I really really wish that the second all-stars will come immediately soon so that we get some hot-dog action again!! :'(

I'm sad they went as well.  They weren't my favorite team but I liked them more than some who are left (namely Jeremy & Sandy).

I'm so sad they got eliminated.  :'( :'( :'( They're my favorite team this season. Hoping they'll have a chance to get back at the all-stars season if there's any real soon.

I already miss them, REALLY. Thinking they won't be there for the rest of the race, means that the next episodes are gonna be more boring.
