Looks like the twins are finished unless it is an NEL. Everyone else is done.

Pam is struggling with the roadblock. Winnie: "You sound like an idiot!" Pam is finally done the roadblock! They're team #9. Pam & Winnie are really happy about that.

Twins are the last to arrive... They've been eliminated from the race. The water killed them.

Pit stop:
1st - Bates & Anthony
2nd - Dave & Connor
3rd - Jessica & John
4th - Joey & Meghan
5th - Chuck & Wynona
6th - Mona & Beth
7th - Caroline & Jennifer
8th - Max & Katie
9th - Pam & Winnie
10th - Jamil & Adries - ELIMINATED

Normally Leg 2 is horribly designed and really predictable/boring. HOWEVER strangely enough they managed to get lots of drama this ep so I'm happy! :)

Dave tore his achilles...

I really want to go jet skiing and scuba diving in Bora Bora after seeing this leg. :hearts:

Two M/M teams eliminated in a row and the cancer survivors are trying to survive with a broken achilles plus it's only the second episode? New Zealand should be REALLY good.

Two episodes in and I'm loving this season way more than 21 (not like I actually loved 21..)

Joey & Meghan are growing on me. I wish they had gotten 1st though.

The sucking up to John/Jessica though :res:

We're seeing a lot of team interaction, which is great!

I actually really like all of these remaining teams! The first two boots were great!

Note to self: DO NOT believe anything Pam and Winnie "not Asians" are reported to say. :lol3:

To be fair, they said that in a being-sarcastic moment to joke with the Docs.  It went something like "we're not twins haha, and we're not Asian, haha"

I was not actually watching this happen (staring at the floor in an uninterested way) so I lost the true meaning.

Winnie made the "Pam has a problem she needs you to look at joke" instantly.  She's sharp by that account.  :tup:

Katie : Girls lets work together!
The Blondes : Yeah
On the ship, The Blondes's ship went first
Max : The blondes, they threw us under the bus the second they got the chance to. Well now we know we can't trust'em at all
On the other ship
The blondes : It's good that we work together with Max&Katie. Hopefully we'll catch up to the other teams  :<3 :<3 :hearts:

Me :  :crazy: :lol3:

Max annoyed me this episode. He's getting all analytical and crediting himself for everything and ill that and I'm just like man you're in 8th place can you chill out a little bit!

I think he's just being paranoid. When the blondes passed'em after they retrieved the detour clue, they were in fact currently in LAST PLACE at that time.

What suprised me though is that these two along with the blondes was only 6 Hours behind John&Jessica. I thought they were like 9 or 10 hours behind.

The bunch was very contrived! :lol3:

Teams would have saved a ton of time if they were allowed to walk to the priest. The water taxis took them once around the island! Map here.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I'm surprised they decided to take the 6-H Penalty so quickly. The other two teams are like...3 hours behind , right now?

It was 1 3/4 hours behind, as Max/Katie started at 914am and Caroline/Jennifer at 915am and the other teams could not leave the dock until 730am.

I observe that David/Connor wasted a lot of time by going back for the snorkel gear. They could have just switched at no penalty to the Take a Trunk DETOUR. If they could handle snorkel then that scuba gear should not have been a problem.

How convenient...a 4.5 hour HOO. :res:

Would've been a boring episode without it

Whats even funnier is that after chuck dragged wynona to the watertaxi, read the clue, then dive again. Lol

I liked the way she lay there motionless on the floor of the boat like she was dead fish.  "See I'm so tired that I'm just a large dead fish."  It was a great act!

It was actually a decent episode, though it always looked likely that the eliminated team would end up last on the mat.  Incredibly stupid of them not to go to the other detour quicker, it looked like it was in the same area and other teams had been penalised so they had time to switch.  Despite the editing to make drama of the 'asian' team getting slightly lost it really wasn't that close at all.  While several of the teams seem bland (the usual wealthy bland American suburbanites) there have been some reasonable tasks so far.  Maybe they could have forced teams to start the stilts tasks again once they had fallen down, they would have have probably done that in earlier seasons where tasks where harder.
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.
