Remember that this has to be a "stand alone" episode. It is going out to people who won't have seen or know what has gone before...so the story has to to speak for itself.

well, based on that.....it makes sense >_>

Paraguay or Germany.  I like to see real racing and not safaris, there are plenty of wildlife documentaries out there if that's what you want.
Reality Fan Forum, where 'enthusiasm' is completely redefined as not meaning having an interest in and having something to say but as having to be completely positive even about aspects of something you disagree on.  So both the fan and forum (discussion) aspects are prescribed/limited.

I would have personally chosen the bravia leg. the yodeling( i believe same epi) snow castles witches food.

That leg was okay. Everything was good except for the Fairy Tale Detour. I don't know how that relates to Germany and it didn't seem memorable. I also do not like how there was a witch that was scripted and didn't seem like a real person. In general, the leg wasn't quite as memorable.

Hansel & Gretel. They were enticed by a witch into a house made out of sweets and the witch eat them for dinner.

Yeah, that was some beautiful scenery but I wouldn't choose that episode because it wasn't that well crafted from a tasks standpoint

No, the safari episode in Tanzania. I liked the tasks on the Bavaria leg a lot.

I wonder if Phil has a shot at Outstanding Host. Are they going to go for the studio hosts who could easily cancel each other out, hand an Emmy to Betty White or fill in the bubble for Phil right after they fill in the bubble for TAR again?

The Outstanding host award was rigged to give Betty White an Emmy award.  In all fairness to Phil, Seacrest, Bergeron etc., nothing they did in the past TV season was any different from what they did in previous seasons.  If Probst were nominated in this category instead of Betty White, he would have won again since I didn't find him to be any worse than in the other years when he won against the same competition.  Probst was bumped in favor of Betty White rather than the others that were nominated because Probst is the only host that the voters might vote for instead of Betty White.  They figured that Probst has already been recognized for his work several times already.

The creative side of the Emmy awards were awarded tonight (all but two of the awards that TAR is up for are considered creative), and TAR didn't  win anything.

That leaves Host (unlikely) and Competition Reality Program (which is highly likely) to be awarded I think in the next week or so.

I really don't get how Emmys is judged? One year TAR loses out to Top Chef... based on??

And this year Jeff Probst isn't even nominated after winning 4 years in a row??? I thought Phil had this Emmy in the bag... or at least had a shot in winning. If you're talking about the effort and time to put into hosting a show... nothing beats Survivor or TAR.

With all that said... TAR owns all other reality shows once again... but loses on all other categories? Oh well.

AT LEAST WE WON THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS AWARD FOR REALITY TV. :D
