A pretty good opening episode!

All the teams seem interesting, though that one lady, Michelle, seems rather...unpleasant.

Ha ha, flashback to start...




This week, the race kicks off with the teams travelling to Trinidad & Tobago. It was a nail biting finish for my two teams, but they pulled it out in the end. The catfishers weren't so lucky and they went home early.

There was no Pit Stop as the teams continued racing after they reached the mat, so there was no first place prize.
  1. Hung & Chee
  2. Michelle & Victoria
  3. Riley & Maddison
  4. Will & James
  5. Jerry & Frank
  6. Leo & Alana
  7. Eswar & Aparna
  8. Kaylynn & Haley
  9. Kellie & LaVonne
  10. Gary & DeAngelo
  11. Nathan & Cody

I liked the episode but it made me really miss the airport scenes. More so that switching of flights and taking chances to get ahead. I've never enjoyed the scheduled flights as much.

Finally got a chance to watch this morning. Trying to remember my teams without checking here and accidentally getting spoiled. Disappointing to lose a team already. As soon as it started though, I had a bad feeling about them. So far, I like everyone except Michelle, who is already starting to annoy me.

Edit:And I hadn't been missing travelling much, but now I really want to go to Trinidad and Tobago and do everything they did... even the goat racing!

That tightrope walk was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

This week, the teams travel to Colombia and we discover yet another society where people love to decorate their vehicles with gaudy crap. The Olympians never got on track and were sent home in leg #2. Hung & Chee are crushing it so far.

I liked this episode.

I thought that the tightrope walk would be way harder, too. But then, that cable they were walking on looked like it was basically immobile, and the 'umbrella' was attached to a sliding point that could be used for balance too, so the main challenge was keeping the tray flat enough not to drop/spill.

Kinda glad the Olympians are gone. They just never seemed...competent at anything beyond running (I did snicker seeing that one nearly outrun the goat in the last ep).

Liking what I'm seeing so far.

There are definitely a few weaker teams that just seem to hang on. Unfortunately my team appears to be one of them. And they were crying in the review of next episode, so that's not good.



Not much really challenging in that episode. I like to see teams suffer, like in the first few seasons of the Amazing Race Canada.

I agree with enjoying seeing teams suffer. I've also never been an "alliance" fan. You play to win the game. Lie, cheat and do what it takes. Yield someone!
