I also think Cindy's "Please let us win this one!" was an expression borne out of frustration and not really a request to the snowboarders to slow up as they raced past them. I agree it is a race and you should collect as many of those first place prizes as you can since you never know when you'll be cut. However, it still bugged to see two Olympic athletes race down another couple just steps from the mat. Especially since Cindy has asthma I believe, so that couldn't have been easy for her. It's part of the race, and I totally get why the boys took the first place from them, but still it came across as a bit crass to me, I don't know why exactly. Having said that though, Ernie and Cindy wasted their express pass AND they wasted the chance to uturn the boys so they have nobody to blame but themselves.
I'm really pulling for Marcus and Amani. They rocked the day, were nice to each other and really enjoyed the culture and the people. I hate those slide puzzles, so I was really impressed with the way they stayed so calm while doing it. Marcus carrying all those people was crazy. I can't see any other team being able to do it, really. He's such a big guy and even he was struggling. That option would have really sunk an all female team, sadly.
