Got to say, Chester & Ephraim do have some good unfinished business. They got killed by every single flight on this leg.

But their likability factor doesn't deserve them coming back tbh

I didn't mind them to be honest, I think had they not gotten killed by the flights on this leg, Tim & Marie would of been eliminated most likely.

Marie is such a bitch..but I love that she's so self-aware and honest about it
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Next week on The Amazing Race...

Teams plunge into the Arctic. Nicole makes a power play for the Express Pass. Travis & Nicole are in a car and Tim & Marie are in a car facing the other direction... Nicole is basically saying I WANT THE EXPRESS PASS. This will be fun to watch.

I kind of like how the tables could turn on the whole 2nd EP. Tim & Marie expected to be treated nicely in order to see if they would give it away, but now Nicole is doing the opposite, deny all help and courtesy unless they hand over the EP.

It was very short, but it had lots of drama between the teams (and interaction as well) so I quite liked it actually! :tup:

I love airport drama. Haven't seen it happen in a long time.

I wonder how close Phil came to missing them since he probably had to leave to get to the next location

Today's episode was very good. I liked it, especially the airport drama that has been lacking.

That was so All-Stars worthy (almost to Schmirna and BQ levels)

  • Cookies with licorice, can't get better than this!
Overall, I think this Leg was fairly decent. The panoramic, castle scenery was beautiful and the stage coach museum is a must-see if I ever go to Lisbon. I have never seen so much airplane travel drama recently and this captivated its essence in The Amaxing Race. The "Tiles" Detour was pretty solid. A bit challenging, but teams were still able to pull through fast. I thought it was too straightforward though for a country we haven't seen since seaaon 3/Flo-mania. The "Miles" Detour was great, a good fork in the road questioning, but it was simple for teams to pair up and figure stuff out together. The Roadblock was trial & error, but this one went by too quickly. I wish team members had their own array of shields and had to aim through all (given number) of those to get their next clue.

The only thing that I really can't stand is the un-Amazing Race-esque soundtracks the editors use. Again, it sounds more like filming for a famous traveler's website instead of a suspenseful and high-energy race.

Gutsy Granny's airport travesty :torche
But the Gutsy Grannies were eliminated at a beautiful winery, got to taste some local brew before they flew off to sequester, and even received gracious messages from their fellow season's racers. Ches & Eph were eliminated at the airport and were forced to fly for another some hours to Elimination Station. :'(

I feel bad for both.

Game over. You win. You have won my admiration for whipping out this quote.  :hrt:

All else aside, I thought it was a very good episode. From my point of view, it's been one of the best episodes I have seen in a while.

"Chester & Ephraim arrived in Lisbon hours after the remaining teams, after encountering a flight delay in Buenos Aires, a missed connection in São Paulo, and a rerouting through London. After all other teams had already checked in at the Pit Stop, Phil is at Lisbon Portela Airport and they were eliminated."

Wow, haven't watch the episode but that is certainly epic.
