Did you see the train leaving the station with people all over the top of the train   Probably got a deep discount for those seats.

Yes Moose, great recovery by the older couple and shocking about Ethan and Jenna. My team bring up the rear .

Yeah it was a good episode but that task of looking for the mask and knife seemed fairly simple. I think the snowboarder dudes are gonna be tough to beat along with the smoking hot twin sisters

Great show again last night!!!Planting rice getting bags of grass was wild and crazy as well as temple.....Snowboarders/And Lawrence/Zac blew away everyone..Snowboarders shouldve gave 1st place to them for helping them out in budda challange...Also Earnie and Cindy unlucky on bike ride with Earnies pedal falling offAlso well as great recovery by Amani and Marcus being in last place to recover to 6th...Grampa and Grandma had tought time walking in fields as well as show girls planting riceBut in end  it was showgirls who were eliminated. Also what was up with snowboarders giving away answer to marcus in temple challange?to Marcus for forgetting advice they gave him as well as Grandma for falling down and showgirls planting rice. as well as teams giving wrong count on budda challange.

Love the updates Moose

Great show and I think that Buddha challenge was a very tough one to figure out. Though my couple was done and amazed to see them take 6th.

It's on the Thailand

This week Amazing Race is off to Thailand as Chaalanges were pretty interesting as it looked like Lawrence/Zac and snowborders looked to be in good shape as they were first teams to enter plane but got hooked in Jarkarta and finished in last as other teams beat them to destination. Beach/water challange was breeze for snowborders as they breezed to 1st place finish.to Twin sisters on beach challange..Lawrence/Zac getting lost on way to pit stop as well as Ernie and Cindy for not knowing island where to rock climb. Amani and Marcus also not knowing where floating stadium was at also. Snowborders are looking tough as theyve won 3 stages in a row. Follow by Justin and Jennifer in 2ndand bickering couple Jeremy and Sandy in 3rd Lawrence and Zac in 4th with Ernie and Cindy in 5th Jimmags team Marcus/Amani in 6th. Bill and Cathi in 7th again follow by Liz and Marie in 8th who were spared as this was none elimination stage. Great show as I like all teams in this race as it isnt cut throat and not many a--hole teams this season. Let try to get this forum more active with more talk about this during this season of The Amazing Race

Those blondes sure are giving blondes a bad name  how hard is it to set up 20 chairs and 10 umbrellas? Got saved by the non-elimination.

And what about those snowboaders smoking everyone  and pocketing $5,000.00 on the way. 3 straight first place finishes. They and Jeremy/Sandy were the only ones to win against the ocean current on coral reconstruction. 

I was amazed that nobody had too much difficulty climbing up the rock wall. It must not have been too difficult a climb I guess.

They are off to Bangkok on the next leg...

Good stuff Moose

Great Show tonight!!!Started off slow but picked up in building temple challange. it was best one yet I think,,,Elephant/underwater challange wasnt to bad....but how on earth did Andy/Tommy fall far off pack?Also congrats to Jimmag your team of Marcus/Amani took home first place in wild celebration!!!To Lawrence/and Zac for not taking notes on temple challange as well as taking first class bus thinking it was against rules and having to walk 3 miles back to bus stop.To Andy/Tommy for asking for directions to pit stop at school and girl taking clue as she ran off and went to teach and they couldnt get clue from her but luckly guy gave them direcions..Also sad to see  twins go but they got free ride all the way with no cash and had almost fubar at bus stop with cabbie asking them for money while bus left...but cabbie gave them ride to bus to get to next clue. Best part is when Phil asked why Andy/Tommy/Lawrence/Zac why they finished so low and Lawrence said they went on first class bus and Phil said its only for flightsand saying errors like that could get them elimated and Lawrence agreed. Also  for Jeremy and Sandy for cutting it close in elimation. again Jimmag for your team taking home first followed closly by Bill and Cathiin 2nd 3rd Earnie and Cindy ,4th Justin and Jenna 5th Andy and Tommy 6th Lawrence and Zac, 7th Jeremy and Sandy and 8th place and eliminated team of Liz and Marie. Best episode yet this season..Off to Africa next.

Anyone else think the twin infactuation with elephants is boder line wierd? Makes me kinda wish I was an elephant though. Pretty cool for her. Yes good to see them get free taxi rides so they could make it to the end of the leg. It was just a matter of time before they got eliminated.

Some big mistakes by the snow boarders and suprised Jeremy and Sandy finished that far back.

Thanks Moose and as always great recap.

didn't know there was a thread on TAR!  I LOVE TAR!!!!

I hate that father/son team.  the dad is a cocky piece of garbage.   plus i hate the ernie and cindy team....

and yes that was weird...the twins with the elephant...although to be honest, i was kinda jealous...how cool of a story to tell...yah..i got to wash an elephant...must have been fun.

this episode was kinda "preachy" at parts when it shouldn't have been.... i know there have been christian teams before, but seeing some of the contestants say, "oh well, we know the real God and God wouldn't mind us doing this challenge".... Never saw that "preachiness" before in other seasons.

Great show tonight as competitors travel to Africa. Love the Tobacco challange as all who did it were huffing and puffingTo Lawrence in cab saying Zac shouldve done it while he was huffing/puffing he may be strong but hes not in shahape for doing that. To Jeremy/Justin/and Bill who kicked but in that challange looks like the 200 pound bags were tough for all. Sewn  up Grown up was pretty wasy for all except Marcus/Amani/Bill/Cindi got cought up in cab line for recption. The Furniture challange was pretty good also as all had to take 2 bed to pit stop as Sandy/Cindy were having hard time picking up bed to take to pit stop. Justin and Jennifer made it first to pit stop but had to go back to pay driver as that resulted another first place and great recovery from Tommy and Andy. But Justin and Jennifer took home 2nd. #rd was Jeremy and Sandy 4th was Lawrence and Zac, 5th was Ernie and Cindy the last 2 spots went down to the wire between last weeks top 2. It looked like Bill and Cathi were goign to finish last by not paying driver but held off Marcus & Amani who took home last. But it was non elimination round Lucky for Jimmag as well as Marcus and Amani. You have to think with only 6 episodes left the non elimanition rounds are done with. Marcus seems to be losing his cool also with cab breaking down as amani was tearful as they both crossed the finish line only to havve another chance as Phil spared them.To all competors also for playing and helping out the kids at the school also. Jimmag im with you with Marcus and Amani hoping they can stave off elimination next week. All that are left are great as Bill and Cathi are really nice & polite to the other competitors in a good way...How can you not like them.Kudos to Bill and Cathi as I didnt think they would make it this far. Looking forward to next week as im sure its going to be intense.

 think my team is done.

Live to fight for one more week and like you said there are all strong teams left. Marcus and Amani will need a super human effort to stay in the game or a big blunder by another team.

 

Got a good laugh when the bed fell on top of  Cindy and she looked like a caged animal. 

I think Ernie wanted to leave her there

 

Very cool Detour "Not Grown Up" with the school children

 

Good stuff Moose!

 

Does it seem like they do not put on as many miles as past shows? Just seems like they stay in the same area longer than in the past.

pretty neat episode tonight.  I was really dissapointed with the father/son team.....wanting to u turn somebody when they clearly weren't in danger......i know it's a race but still...

next week's previews show cindy and ernie u turn somebody so they can get first.....show's the class level for them.

i just don't like cindy.....begging to win first this episode and ernie saying, "really??"....it's a race right?  ernie and cindy can't beat the tommy and andy without having to use a u turn.   i hope ernie and cindy lose...same with the father /son team.

I love marcus/amani....they seem positive and overcoming obstacles.

bill and cathi are the strongest senior citizen team i have ever seen on the race.  i wouldn't be surprised if they make top 3.

Totaly agree LonghornSucks Justin and Jennifer got elininated with Jennifer losing clue and not knowing what to so.On to the recap of last night. Didnt know it was double U turn last night Bike challange went well for all teams but Jennifer and Tommy who lost his pedal but recovered and Jennifer got lost as she lost clue Also canoe ride proved to be tough task for Jeremy and Sandy as Sandy seemed to not know how to steer canoe and difficult roadblock for Marcus and Amani with flag puzzle but they rallied and finished strong. Agree with you Longhorn about Lawrence/Zac wanting to UTurn someone when noone was in danger/ Zac is all right but old man is knid of cocky person. Same with Cindy asking Tommy/Andy to let them win.Jimmag your team is still alive!!!With awesome recovery to finish in fourth Marcus seemed beat carring all those people to finish last challange but they dug dep to rally.To Jeremy/Cindy as wel as few teams not able to find Jamica Island. 1st went to Andy/Tommy who are becoming force as well as team to beat edging out Earnie and Cindy 3rd went to Bill and Cathi who are doing awesome. Marcus and Amani taking 4th. Lawrence/Zac finishing in 5th and coming in 6th who I think needs to get there garbage together Jeremy and Sandy and finishing in7th abd eliminated by having bad luck getting last on bike ride Justin and Jennifer. Next week on to Denmark and another UTurn...I wonder who Earnie and Cindy will Uturn?

The double U near the end was odd, not the kind of thing you see on that show.

I am rooting for the married farmers, they work hard and are very organized.

Good season so far!

Good recap Moose!  surprised Marcus and Amani are still in.
 
Marcus Pollard was the man in Dugout or Lugout Detour and his Football training got him through a physical challenge. He carried 8 passengers to land.
LOL when he asked if there were any babies  
 
 
Tough luck for Justin and Jennifer. I was not real fond of them at first because they seem to argue a bit much. In the end they stopped the fighting and too bad they messed up on the Roadblock.
 
 
Wall, like the married couple also 63 years old and going strong
 
 And you cannot take anything away from snowboarders Andy and Tommy 5 out of 7 first place finishes. WOW!

What an Episode tonight!!!Another Double UTurn!!!!It started off like Lawrence and Zac were going to cruise to first place finish with gamble they pulled off at airport...Challange of going up tower to find castle was awesome with view of Copenhagen...Also totaly funny seeing everyone dressed up in costume for danceThe women had easy time with dance while Zac had tough time as he had no dance skills..As that hurt them in losing ground Ernie is ok but Cindi im not so sure aboutNext challange was making butter or doing rabbit jump as most teams did well with no hang up....Marcus and Amani were battling not finishing in last with Sandy/Jeremy..Im pissed that Cindi used Uturn  on Bill/Cathi as Ernie didnt want to use....that was total BS and I think that will come back and bite them as I think Bill/Cathi shoudnt of used Uturn on Lawrence/Zac which cost them in end as I thought Jeremy/Sandy were going to be gone..if not for the Uturn. In past shows using Uturn will come back and bite you in the behind..But it worked out for Ernie and Cindi who took home first in 2nd it was bill and Cathi right behind them was Tommy/Andy finishing in 4th was Jimmags team Marcus/Amani finishing in 5th was Jeremy and Sandy and coming in last and elimated which to me was total shock and team I was pulling for Lawrence and Zac. Next week should be good with teams doing acting and bodybuilding which I am going to be getting back into after seeing clip for next week

Ughhhh...I can't stand Cindi and Ernie.... Cindi seems like the supreme girl.   U-turning Bill/Cathi ????  the senior citizen team???  I hope cindi gets eliminated soon....i feel bad for ernie....seems like she wears the pants in the relationship.

I loved marcus's enthusiasm with the rabbit challenge. 

also i giggled when zac couldn't pronounce Copenhagen.

i'm just sick of cindi

Great show tonight!!!!Loved the challanges!!!The theater/lego land/bodybuilding posedown!!!Cindi breesed through theatue challange as did Amani&Kathi while Tommy and Sandy didnt show enough passiondoing lines....Lego land was blast as Amani was ready to puke along with Marcus and Sandy with Bill and Kathiwith all pieces flying allover Cindi and Ernie got really lucky when they lost tickets but no one claimed them on train ride to Brussels.Loved  the bodybuilding posedown!!!I know all about that in getting ready with oiling up body and doing strict tight poses. Marcus and Amani rocked in that as did Ernie and Cindi....Looks tome snowborders and Farmers are going to have tough time....Non elimination leg tonight as race continues on. I think Phil gave Tommy/Andy/Bill/Kathi break because of bodybuilding posing. Great show tonight as its down to 5 teams soon to be 4 after next week.

Another good episode last night as 5 teams are still alive for $1 million....wow mustang challange was awesome fun  last night for all going over 100mph then doing slalom then donuts!!!To Ernie for hitting ballon 20 or so times allowing Jeremy to catch up...but still did finish course first..to Marcus/Amani for getting lost yet again with mixed up directions...Waffle/water challange was fun one also...As Ernie/Cimdi/Jeremy/Sandy had tough time setting up waffle stand as well as making waffles as well as trying to figure out what went wrong after they made 18 wafflesWhile Marcus/Amani...Snowboarders as well as Farmers did water challange and did so with great success...Snowboarders whipped through water challange as did Marcus/Amani  after it took them while to figure hot to set up boat. Next challange was releasing penguins then finding address where they landTo Ernie/Cindi for getting lost on way to find out where to penguins land at....While Marcus/Amani/Sandi/Jeremy had hard time find place also..The pit stop was the awesome Atomium where the racers had to meet Phil....

1)Andy/Tommy....They breezed through every challange in record time and I feel are the team to beat..Also not bad first prize with Ford Mustang customeized to their fit.

2)Jeremy/Sandi...I thought this was a surprise up set finish as I thought they wouldnt make it and be next team send homw but they surprised me by finishing this high dispite difficult time making waffles.

3)Ernie/Cindi....Yes Cindi can be total girl but you have to give them credit...They stuck through it and finishished in 3rd dispite getting lost on way to pit stop...I think they will crack as Ernie is starting to get frazzled in business stage of race and by Cindi's dominating nature...They have the staminia to last in race as much as I hate to see them win. But I have feeling they will give snowboarders run for their money.

4)Marcus/Amami.....They are on the edge...They still are alive just by racing a bit better then the farmers as well as getting spared by none elimination legs...They arnt good at directions and with no more non eliminations left they have to have perfect leg...Not counting them out but they have to get with it and get act together...Sorry Jimmag your team I know. Hope they are there at end but we'll see what happens.

5)Bill/Kathi.....This team was awesome to watch!!!!!Sad to see them eliminated but at that age you cant help but like and respect them.......Phil said at end age doesnt mean a thing in TAR they said they want to give old people hope...They did just that!!!Hated to see them gone but top 5 finish is awesome for them...They got too far behind and couldnt catch up...All teams should be like Bill/Kathi. They were kind..respectful nice to all teams and never raced dirty or cutthroat like teams in past seasons have. 2 epiosodes left lets watch and find out who will win TAr as may the best team win!!!!

You got that capped spot on Moose. Those snow boarders are awesome they way they tear through detours and roadblocks. My team is in big trouble they need to get better at navigation and not be afraid to stop and ask for directions.

Love that Mustang course what a blast!

Great show tonight as we are down to the final 4  teams and who wins is anybodys guest....The first challange wasnt too bad as the teams had to dress as comic book chactors..in having 3 names they could go buy and being detectives....I felt I shouldve seen it coming as teams that are doing too good with no mistakes are due for dall and it kinda happened as Tommy/Andy had little mishap....in not getting their names right as they thought they were the Marx Brothers....while looking for Tintin...while all teams did that it was off to Panama...to take boat in middle of night to Chagras River and too villiage Parara Puru....to get fake tattoes for next  Road block,,,,it was off to skyscraper to walk tightrope Andy, Cindi, Amani, and Sally had to do roadblock...Sandy was afraid of heights but she did well in challange as did Andy whos team has been breezing though challanges.for walking tight rope 35 stories above ground as Marcus was freaking out and he didnt even have to do challange, Next was Raodblock in Sole or Fillet where each team had to make sandels or take exect amount of fish to venders...Andy/Tommy breezed again while Marcus and Amani whipped though Fish challange..Next was to find dancers to get pitstop clue...Tough luck by Andy/Tommy as they looked and it said Balboa and they went to wrong place whle other teams found directions...Only beef with that Cab drivers had effect in outcome as I think there shouldve been penalty as cab drivers helped each other out with teams in cab...Fair decision would to have all four teams back to decide final..I feel Andy/tommy got screwed as they seemed ok with losing..I know I wouldnt have been..But an upset to besure as Jeremy and Sandy take first Cindi and Ernie take 2nd and Jimmags team Marcus/Amani take 3rd and final spot...I think show is great but Phil has to make some changes so results like this wont happen again such as what happened to snowborders as well as cabdrivers or such having effect in outcome.
