I actually enjoyed the episode! Seeing Jenna and Ethan was good, as always! That one girl with the wierd name(random fact: she's also Rachel's BFF) losing her passport and then it just so happening to be found by the same people that we saw giving another team directions was bullshit. I also hate non-elimination legs. They make me feel like I spent a whole hour watching a show for no good reason!

When I saw the team from vegas my first thought was I wonder if they knew Rachel. I like most of the teams so far. I actually like that the first leg was NEL. I always felt bad for the first team eliminate because I felt they never really get a chance to play. The double elimination should be interesting.

I was very disappointed in last nights episode of TAR. First of all the speed bump was ridiculous, untangling a knot? really? Then the final task which orders the teams to hand over all their money and if they didnt read the sign they had to go back. Ok, a few things about this. If you are going to arrive at the pitstop only to have Phil tell you that you have to go back and give the orphanage all your money, then basically the order that people left is the order they will come back. Yes, a few who read the sign were able to check in right away but anyone who didnt and was forced to go back to give their money, pretty much got back in the same order. WHAT WAS THE POINT? Why in the world would Phil TELL them what their error was? Why wouldnt he simply say, like they have always done in the past, you did not complete your last task and you must go back and complete it before I check you in. This way they would at least have to figure out what they missed. I was sorry to see Ethan and Jenna get eliminated and my early hatred is for Earnie and Cindy. UGHHHHH, not so much Earnie is that whiny biotch Cindy. Please let them get eliminated soon! OH and the brother and sister who constantly fight? I dont remember their names but the sister is a TOTAL bitch!!!! I feel bad for her brother. All in all, its not looking like this will be one of my favorite seasons. More like one of my least favorite.
