  • Can't wait 4 "The Amazing Race" 24..!!!!!!!!
well, i was starting to love YouTube and then this happened...so here's my thoughts:

Max & Katie: After Pam & Winnie, these 2 r the most ugly characters in the history of the show; so they can go to hell if possible.

Caroline & Jennifer: Kinda shocks me they're still in....they never stood up during the whole season! They're so forgettable because of the fact that they're only in it thanks to the protection of someone else, not for their own efforts.

Bates & Anthony: Assclowns, why keeping the newlyweds?? Can't u see they're getting stronger? Don't u wanna secure the winning?

Mona & Beth: Please win this season..................please do it.!!

Josh and Brent come to mind when it comes to the guarantee or lack of a guarantee over a win due to weak competition.  Plus, Max & Katie would have survived anyway, being the second team to arrive at the U-Turn

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

EXACTLY. I actually think Bates and Anthony were the biggest threat. I'm just saying.

Also, they probably want the Country Singers with them to the finals. They knew Max and Katie were second. Why let the risk of the Country Singers being eliminated (even though it was probably not going to happen) when they could help them by U-Turing Joey and Meghan, who was in the other alliance?

For anyone wondering why Bates & Anthony didn't get a penalty for carrying and not rolling the barrels:

#Detour called #WhiskeyRollin but clue details say they simply have to move them on their own rolling carrying, kicking .. under their power

Whiskey rollin' obviously would suggest that you have to roll them, gives them even more of an advantage if they can carry.

Nobody left for me to root for now anyway, the crap information the last two teams were given at the airport basically decided the whole leg and meant the other teams were completely safe.  The usual editing to make out the end was close, but I doubt that had many fooled.
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.

So that cleared up a lot of things, annoyingly for me, I went up and down the royal mile the night they were here, and didn't think to go along the Cowgate, otherwise I would have seen the pitstop  :groan:

The Holiday Inn is just down the road from the pitstop, which accounts for the team stopping there to ask for directions.

Great job on specing out the episode. That photo of B/A running by the Bank Hotel was their run up that Niddry Street to the pit stop. It did seem that Phil and the mat were a long way down that little street/alley. You probably would have seen it from Cowgate.

Mona & Beth reach the castle. Joey & Meghan arrive right after. Mona chooses to do the roadblock. Meghan chooses to do the roadblock. Meghan thinks that she can easily do this.


The Roadblock Clue said that Mona and Meghan had to do the task.

No, the Malawi slide puzzle had to be the hardest.

they should've put the W-TURN in Berlin, when they all just got equalized

putting it in this leg made it seem unnecessary.

even without the W-TURN, Youtubes and RollerDerbies would have battled it out for last place anyway...

DAMN those flights
I say just the opposite. The best incidents of past Amazing Race season have been where teams use their superior sweat equity or special access to get ahead with flights (example - Charla and Mirna flying Warsaw to Kuala Lumpur in AR11). They deserve it!

I think the moms and Joey and Meghan can only blame themselves for not checking twice. But then again they had some bad luck there. Had they not get on and went to ask, I think they would have been on the earlier flight too. Just that it was too careless of them to not check... but it could have happened to any team. The only team that deserved credits for checking the earliest flight is Max and Katie here. And for that, they deserved to win the Leg, IMHO.

Loved the Roadblock, Detour and Speedbump. So SCOTTISH! The pit-stop greeter is really interesting too and I remembered taking a tour with my tour guide dressed the same way as him too! Kudos to Max for guessing correctly who he is!

Was rooting for Joey and Meghan. But props to the moms... Joey and Meghan behaved like they were on a holiday. -_-

It would have made the episode a little more interesting/suspenseful if the roadblock was after the double u-turn.  I know the producers had no idea that Max/Katie, Bates/Anthony & Caroline/Jennifer would get there so far ahead of Joey/Mehgan & Mona/Beth, but the odds were high that at least one team would get an earlier flight.  So unless they thought the bagpipes was going to be more of a challenge than it was for most of them, having the roadblock first and the u-turn board with the clue to the pit stop was just anti-climactic. 

I know it's easier to think these things through as viewers, but it would have been nice if Bates/Anthony decided not to use the u-turn.  They knew they were one of the first three teams to arrive in Edinburgh & they knew that the roadblock didn't take them very long so even though they had no idea how many clues were still hidden in the fireplaces they should have known that they were in the top three.  Knowing all that the only reason to use the u-turn would be either they wanted to give Caroline/Jennifer a cushion in case they fell behind or as someone else mentioned to help Mona/Beth catch up as a thank you for helping them.  Unfortunately for us, this meant that as soon as they did that we knew that it was either going to be Bates/Anthony or Max/Katie in first Caroline/Jennifer in third and Mehgan/Joey & Mona/Beth battling for last.  Seeing how Bates/Anthony had a hard time moving the barrels it wasn't a stretch to see that Mehgan/Joey would struggle and probably be eliminated.

It would have been more interesting if Bates/Anthony didn't u-turn anyone and if Max/Katie u-turned Mona/Beth.  Then we could have seen if Mona/Beth would have u-turned on Mehgan/Joey to save themselves (which would have been the smart thing to do).

Previous seasons have shown that there are so many things that can factor into the final leg that it's not necessarily going to be an easy win if you bring "weaker" teams with you.  As we saw last season, while it's nice to win prizes it's only important to not come in last on every leg and first on the last leg when it counts.

If Bates&Anthony did not U-TURN Joey&Meghan, Maxie would have done it anyway I think.They were so vocal about this. They did say they want Joey&Meghan out first

Then Carol&Jen would have gotten to the U-TURN mat 3rd, wondering why Bates&Anthony did not utilize the U-TURN. Maybe they got lost. And Carol&Jen would end up U-TURN Mona&Beth to save Bates&Anthony, thinking they hadn't completed the detour yet.

and also, i think the producer is aware with the 10.40 am flight, maybe even think that all teams would get on that flight. JoeyMeghan and MonaBeth are just not aware of it, even think they gain a 3-hours-lead ahead of those three.

Just agree with everything. That's why Bates and Anthony should have used the U-Turn on the Newlyweds - They know that they would be top 3 on that leg...so they could guarantee the prize by arriving 1st. But no, let's U-Turn the teams that aren't even here in Scotland ...dumb decisions lead to dumb 2nd place :P
