And with one more all male team then female, I am glad to see one of them go.  So this was a good leg for me.

Also really nice to see Kaylani & Lisa not make the basic mistake that so many teams made.

To be fair, I'm sure everyone thought Kaylani and Lisa should be gone this leg.. RIGHT? Nobody expected them to survive and even come in third!!!!11

Armani and Marcus >>> Jenna

I like ETHAN!

Omg 2 teams I didn't like that much went home! :hrt: :hearts:
I like Ethan & Jenna.  But between survivor how many hors have we got to know them a little.  Quite a few.

Amani & MArcus we have barely gotten to know.  And so far I do like them, so its nice.

Actually I was sure it would be Ron & Bill and Bill & Cathi.  I would have bet real money.  I pick Kaylani & Lisa to go in the next two legs.

This. Is. A. Crazy. Leg. MY GOD. Whoever is updating Wikipedia good luck!

THIS FEELS LIKE THE AMAZING RACE ASIA FOR ONCE!

Only 3 teams didn't make a mistake and they're the teams from the back. Like... OMG.
Andy & Tommy were 4th at the orphanage I think.  Kaylani & Lisa are very lucky.  Ron & Bill still would be going home, and I think push came to shove, Ethan & Jenna would have gained ground on them in the long walk both ways.

Wow to Bill & Cathi.  Seriously.  So didn't think they would survive.  Let alone be competitive.

Good job.

I'm surprised that they are smarter than they look. Lisa seemed to do really well at the roadblock last time and they were one of three teams to read the sign. Who knows what they'll do next :duno:

Why the Andy & Tommy hate, Joab.  Just because their guys?

I like them.  So far.  They have been nice to others on the race, have a sense of humor, nice to each other.  And so far the tasks haven't been designed to be easier for two guys racing.

And so far they aren't a BJ & Tyler over the top annoyance.

I think you got me wrong darling.. I don't hate them. I'm neutral towards them and I have nothing against them. Yes, they haven't been a BJ and Tyler either.

It's just, I wanted Liz and Marie or Bill and Cathi to come in first. You see, it's harder for these 2 teams to come in first as compared to teams like Andy and Tommy or Ernie and Cindy. I like Ernie and Cindy but I didn't want them to come in first this leg either because they already won the last.

I just like different teams coming in first place! I feel that on seasons where different teams come in first place (with the exception of TAR 5).. have all been great seasons. TAR 1, TAR 14, TAR 7, TAR 17, TAR 18 etc etc. In comparison, I hated TAR 9 and TAR 13. It bored the shit out of me. :neener:

To be fair, I won't be surprise if the snowboarders made it up till Leg 8.. and they're going to win a leg or 2 more on the way, so I really really wanted other teams whom I expect not to make it that far to win a leg first.

That's just my rationale.

I would have loved, loved to see Bill & Cathi win that's for sure.  Not so much Liz & Marie just because they haven't made as nice of an impression as Andy & Tommy (ie they have had some conflict with each other, though its been minor).

I guess for me you race well, followed by you are nice to locals, nice to your team mate and then nice to your competition generally impacts on who I like for teams.  I just generally (there are a few exceptions) don't care about the makeup of a team.

Oh I should add like with sports, I also give props for those who appear to be going all out.

When in season 6 for example I see Mary Jean carrying the salt up to shore, and Adam bitching and moaning.  I loved seeing her kick his ass.

Thats one of the reasons I really didn't like (I did like them but I didn't want to see them keep going) was Erwin & Godwin.  They rarely seemed to going all out.  It's a race.  I got pissed at much of the cast of season 16 for this type of attitude (yeah Jordan I am talking to you we don't need to run.  Shut up yes you do).

With this episode and last, there wasn't really a lot of visual clues to show that a team is working their ass off.  So its much harder to judge that aspect.

I hated that about BJ & Tyler, hated it.  At least Eric & Jeremy always seem to be going all out when actually racing.

I think I will jump and up and down in glee if Bill & Cathi manage to survive this leg.

Well for most of the leg they were running tenth.  But unlike most of the teams (minus Andy & Tommy and Laurence & Zac) Kaylani & Lisa properly followed a clue that saved them from having to go back to the last task of the race, complete it properly and then return to Phil.  THis vaulted them up to third.

It was very nice to see this team paying attention to the small details (especially after the passport incident).

Oh that was lucky. It was certainly a nice surprise to see that they got 3rd after a crappy day of school.

15,000 Rupiah parking for one Detour.

Go to Orphanage and hand over all their money in their possession? WTF. TAR IS EVIL. :lol:

In hindsight, since the 15,000/30,000 Rupiah donated to the orphanage is worth only about US$1.70/$3.40, perhaps the racers should have been more suspicious about this task.  I wonder if the racers were given an extra generous amount of money at the start of this leg of the race so they'd have more in their pockets when they got to Indonesia.

I was thinking the same thing. We have yet to see a normal cluebox. I actually find it interesting and creative. :tup:
