Well, was hoping for an elim of the twins but pretty much suspected it would be a NEL so..
Can't believe 3 out of the 4 couples didn't know about Mallorca or how to pronounce it..
Enjoyed the leg. Not quite understanding the Beekman's choice though wrt the tennis roadblock.
I mean sure, your ankle can feel better after a resting period/keeping the leg elevated for some time.
But anyone can understand that putting new physical strain on it will make the injury come up again..??
Surely a x-hour resting period at night on the boat won't remedy it so much that you can strain it again.
They seem like intelligent people, so I don't quite understand why they let themselves believe that would not be a factor now, somehow - even if they did finish before the twins they took unnecessary risks imho.
ETA: I guess Josh wanted to prove himself more after Brent asking him about his intentions to be on the race and his commitment to being in it 100%. Maybe also trying to prove to himself he was a 100% partner..? Also, in retrospect, he might have underestimated how hard gravel is in terms of standing ground and impact on the ankle/body on the whole.
Either way this might have cost them dearly if the twins didn't screw up so much and if it had been an elimination round. Also it may still hurt them in the next leg. Not wise, imho.
Also I don't understand why the Chippies wanted to go for the bull too, unless it's just 'group mentality'?
Seems like the other task was way more fitting for their abilities.. Really hope they'll all start realizing this is a RACE and others are actual competitors.. this whole 'We'll follow you' thing.. well at this stage it seems just kind of silly to me, and unwise. Maybe all of them are too afraid to break away from the 'final 3-pack' to do something too much to upset others which might bite them in the ass...
I'm not a fan of bickering or teams proclaiming they are enemies etc but well, this is a race and they are competitors.. I'd have liked to have seen a bit more of that instead of them all clicking together it seems..
Anyway I didn't get to see the footage for next week yet? So is the memory task one where they just have to recognize the phrase?? If so it should be quite doable I think with some logical deduction?? Kudo's by the way for whoever picked up on that first and suggested it might be in the finale as a memory task!
ETA: Oh and they are very definitely milking the 'more motivated than anyone'- cow wrt the Chippies i.t.o. the Cancer story.
The only reason I can think they will do this is that either the Chippies win (as mentioned by others here before) or somehow get some kind of compensation - I've read stories about people getting in second also getting some money, is that true?
