im so sorry i didn't finish the updates!!! my damned internet was going off and on and off and on
heres a summary of what happened after:

Paul and Steve won the FF and were 1st at the Pit Stop

The RB was to hop atop a moving tram and grab 3 flags on the way up to Grouse Mountain. If they failed after 3 attempts, they would receive a 4 hour penalty.
The Pit Stop was Crab Park in downtown Vancouver

Shane and Andrew completed the Toss Detour, Shane did the RB and finished the leg in 2nd

Michelle and Jo completed Tumble Detour, Michelle did the RB and finished the leg in 3rd
P.S. I think the editors have forgotten to bleep out swear words... I'm pretty sure I heard Jo say "this is so f***ing confusing" - did anyone else get that??

Joseph and Grace completed the Toss Detour, Grace did the RB and struggled as she was very short and the flags were up high. After 2 failed attempts she completed it on the 3rd attempt. Their waiting taxi driver said the meter was still on and they owed him $150!! he got very angry with them and they had to beg for money. They arrived at the Pit Stop in 4th place.

Lucy and Emilia struggled during the Tumble Detour, especially Lucy. After blood sweat and tears, Emilia managed to do all 10 rotations on the log. Emilia did the RB and failed on 1st attempt. On 2nd attempt she used her mother as an inspiration to finish the task. On the way up she sang a Bryan Adams song  :lol: and finished the task with a few more happy tears. The sisters arrived at the Pit Stop in 5th

JAMES AND SARAH!!!! finished the nautical flag puzzle and completed the Toss Detour. They had very little money and managed to get $5 from a kind Chinese couple. Their taxi driver was aware they had little money but he was kind enough to take them to the RB for free. Sarah did the RB in one go. They took a DIFFERENT taxi to the Pit Stop and when they got there he said he wouldn't let them go. they had to beg. They asked a policemen to compromise with the driver and he agreed to let them off if they sent him a bottle of Fosters wine from Australia  :lol: They arrived at the pit stop last and were... eliminated  :'(


Now I'm not sure if this is exactly what the ad said, but I got that there will be no TARAus for 3 WEEKS OR the finale is on 13TH AUGUST! Which I am furious about. Someone needs to confirm this.
The ad made a huge deal of getting rid of Paul and Steve
It said the race will continue on to Canada (mountains), China (temple?) and back home to the motherland (pretty sure i saw Fraser Island) 
Next week's tasks include ice wall climbing, mechanical bull riding, skiing?, and getting a clue out of a block of ice

SPOILER
Show content
I saw evidence of two other teams in the Final 4, but i will not say unless you guys really want to know :(
PM me if you really want the spoiler, I dont want to ruin it for people who dont want to know

Anyway, this was a very good episode IMO with some great moments

thats all i got from tonight guys... I'm sorry I let you down  :( Damn Telstra!

That's it! That's it!

It was up to debate before but after this episode it's very clear,

they are for me the best female/female team ever, if not the best team period.

I love 'em to death.

This had to be my favourite episode of the season. :hearts:

LUCY WANTING TO WRESTLE A BEAR! <33333333333333333333333 :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

I didn't hear half of the scenes with Lucy & Emilia in them, because of everyone's reactions in the cinema whenever they came on! :lol: :lol3:

LUCY GETTING IN THE BOAT! <33333333333333333333333 JOSEPH & GRACE HELPING HER GET IN! <333333333333333333333333333333333 :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

They are beyond doubt the funniest team in TAR history in my book! :hearts: And definitely in my Top Three of All-Time, along with Flo & Zach and Charla & Mirna of course, and I'd even go as far as saying they are my equal favourite team of all-time, tied with both of those teams I just mentioned. :hearts:

I can't believe the ending! It was just like a replay of Uchenna & Joyce versus Rob & Amber at the TAR7 Finish Line, only with the opposite outcome! :ascared So sad that James & Sarah went home the way they did, :'( but I'm just so relieved that Lucy & Emilia survived! :whew

they had an incredible episode, both hilarious and emotional

I loved the trouble Lucy had with the boat, their hillbilly impersonation  :lol3:.

Their dedication of this leg to their mum was also great, it was especially awesome when Emilia was doing the roadblock

One of my most favourite episode!
The scenery of Vancouver from Grouse Mtn is so gorgeous!! I hope I'm one of the people to perform that RB. :hrt:
The FF......I prefer James and Sarah or The Blondes to perform it! :colors :colors :colors :-[ :-[ :-[
Paul and Steve once again team no.1, good job for them. :tup:
Both sides of the Detour looks fun but definitely the logrolling is horrible.
I would give 9/10 since one of my favourite team got grantliminated... :'( :'( :'(

At first I thought the logrolling Detour involved doing ten spins in one go! :ascared That would've been impossible! :lol:

Sarah was actually really smart in this episode with her strategy to stand at the back of the cable car to get closer to the flags! Really impressive stuff! :hoot: :hoot:

Another epic moment was Sarah asking the 'Toss' Detour people if she could throw the axe sideways, and the man says, "No! You'll take all our heads off!" :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

Pretty good leg.

Very happy Grace and Joseph continued.  Horrible taxi driver.  I have to ask...why no self driving again????

The log roll task always looked more difficult, luckily a couple of teams surprisingly tried it anyway.

I have liked Lucy and Emilia but actually liked them slightly less in this episode.  The mother story heard once was enough, I'm not a moron and don't have to hear about it loads of times.  Getting a bit like the American race there, preaching a human interest story instead of getting on with the race.  So I might have actually preferred Sarah and James to continue.  Sad to hear James talking about how close they are and how they will continue together when we now know they have broken up.  Sarah was funny and a star but at the same time was an obvious weakness in that team with the racing.

I'm in two minds about these kinds of fast forwards.  It was an interesting test as to whether someone would do it, would a female team have done it?  I suspect not lol.  But these fast forwards are also likely to make people think that the first to leave for it has won it (if they do it) so there isn't real competition at the actual fast forward itself.

Actually, I don't even think they have ever mentioned it on the show before this episode - or if they have, no more than a brief mention. :duno:

Ouch i got it wrong.. it was "Heaven" by Bryan Adams... but "Everything I do I do it for you" would have fitted better since Emilia was all the time "do it for mom".

I'm not blaming them, to me it's the editors fault.  We had them as the funny fun team and suddenly the producers switched the whole angle in this program and it didn't work for me.  It felt really forced as if they wanted to make this program about their mother and it was like the shows makers were trying to manipulate me.  I hate that kind of approach.

supah3ro,

There is a not-so-small event happening in London July 27 - August 2 called thee Olympics. That is why the Australian broadcasters are switching focus for 2.5 weeks. Once the Olympics are over, Amazing Race Australia 2 will be back the next day.
