The two African legs this week have been generally good!

Both Roadblocks were typical TAR tasks for Victoria Falls. The intersection was random - didn't seem too hard or involve much cooperation at all? I think perhaps they did that to even teams out after the microlight flying which appeared like one team at a time?

I found the detours in the two legs too similar though - both village related tasks, local children etc. Leg 8's detour was the better of the two. The poaching challenge and the poo identification FF were good tasks!

Devastated that Sid/Ash are out as they provided the best drama of the season and were pretty damn funny to watch. :groan:
Malawi next week looks great though - I'm thinking two legs (Lilongwe and Lake Malawi), followed by the penultimate leg in Bangkok?

Is there a mistake on the Wikipedia, or did they really go into Congo?

Congo doesn't even border Zambia or Zimbabwe so I'm sure it's a mistake :funny:

It says a lot about a quality of the season when the best team in F5 is dominant alpha male team who won 6 legs by end of 8th leg.

How many more legs Tom & Tyler needs to win to break the record?

Boot order is seriously baaad.

I haven't watched the this season since Leg 5, and from reading the episode threads I don't think I'm gonna bother either.

It pains me to say that but I've never complained so much about a season ever... Even the shall not be named All Stars 2 is better than this.

The only saving grace now is if Tom & Tyler are next to go. If they keep up the dominant reign it'll sadly turn into the most boring season ever.

And I agree 100% with the boot order being awful.
Wishlist for Next Returnee Season:
Kym & Alli - Misti & Jim - Mike & Rochelle - Hayley & Blair - Ernest & Jin - Cindy & Rick - Tiffany & Krista
 - Scott & Blair - Mike & Liz

.... The World is Waiting! ....

With that Paul & Steve's record for leg wins has been broken, which probably explains why TAR doesn't cast that archetype much anymore. It's been awhile sine we've seen a speeding penalty, which was applied at the Pit Stop instead of the next leg and has been a source of controversy. Sid & Ash haven't been a fun watch considering their post-show news and their elimination is fitting considering their first leg. The two African legs were pretty fun, but the boot order and leg dominance are the season's biggest weaknesses.

I honestly think Tom & Tyler are the most likeable and most fun dominant alpha male team ever. 

I really wanted to watch the Sid & Ash/Jasmine & Jerome "rivalry" go all the way to the end. Oh well. To think Sid & Ash would've been safe had Ash just not gone over the speed limit only to pass the two teams. They all got to the next location at basically the same time anyway.

Australia penalizes speeders harder than other versions. Usually it's 15 minutes, and rarely shown (Becca & Floyd apparently sped on TAR31).

Great episode. Have to give them credit for the creativity of the Fast Forward, for Tom & Tyler's reactions alone.

Most of the tasks have been recycled tasks we've seen plenty of times. The FF was so good it should've been an extra task for everyone or even a Road Block  :lol:

Wow I think that mightíve been the strongest episode thus far. Still annoyed that they keep doing double legs, want more variety.

Letís go Femi and Nick!
