Boo, I'm in the minority, but I'm rooting for Brenchel. I hope they do well!
I am flabbergasted by the two sisters. How can they miss Phil???? He was right THERE!! I laughed so hard when I saw Phil's face. So far, the teams that I like are the twins, the clowns, the fitness dudes, border portals. I know there's more, but I can't think of any.
I liked B and R but after his disrespectful comments I will not root for them at all. If he hates what the US border patrol does maybe he should head back over the border. What a tool

Like I said, I don't completely get the Brendon thing.
One that comes to mind before anything else is Kendra's (of Freddy/Kendra) comments about Africa during TAR 6.we've heard some really lousy comments about locals from racers before
WGWG: White Guy with Guitar, best show example being American Idol. WGWGs are usually young and widely considered to be attractive, thus forming the expectation that the young female audience would be standing behind them throughout the show, no matter how much vocal talent they have or, as is often the case, lack. As with the country cult, their huge following has shown to spell doom for anybody that doesn't fit the WGWG description.
I'm surprised that no one mentioned the twist in the Road Block. The clue was, "Who's got a good sense of direction?" The person who accepted the challenge drove to the pickup spot using a map. The other person had to skydive ;-) I thought that was great :-)
Phil was live tweeting during the East Coast show. Jerry Bruckheimer live tweeted during the West Coast show. Phil tweeted that the ending of this first leg was shocking...something we'd never seen before. We couldn't figure out what it was going to be...and then the girls completely missed him when they went through the doorway. Wow.

I've never watched Big Brother, so I know nothing of Rachel and Brendon, and I was only half watching the episode so I didn't see a lot of the issues people are talking about, so I really have no bias towards them. I don't mind crossover couples if they're interesting and don't scream at each other-I was rooting for Rob and Amber and I thought Jordan and Jeff were precious and hysterical, so I think I'm gonna have to watch closer next week and keep an eye on them.
Guess we all should have seen the golfer girls being eliminated right from the get-go when they insisted that athleticism would ensure they coast though. This isn't just a straight marathon ladies, you have to think some....but I STILL couldn't believe they managed to miss Phil RIGHTTHERE. I get that you're full of adreneline, but at least turn your head. I remember last season a lot of people here complained about how clueless teams were about following directions, well this made me wonder if we're going to be in for another season of really, really stupid mistakes.
BTW, this episode convinced me that I should never do this show. Of all reality shows, AR is the one I'd be most tempted to try for the travelling aspect, but I would have never made it past the roadblock, and the roadblock was definitely a great twist to those who thought they could guess what it would be. I'm TERRIBLE with directions.....but I'm terrified of both heights AND falling. The last time I was on a roller coaster was a decade ago, and my friends literally strapped me in till it started. Kudos to the mom who thought of her kids when she wanted to back out.
It was a very good twistI'm surprised that no one mentioned the twist in the Road Block. The clue was, "Who's got a good sense of direction?" The person who accepted the challenge drove to the pickup spot using a map. The other person had to skydive ;-) I thought that was great :-)
Well, I wouldn't have liked jumping out of a perfectly good plane, but I guess I would have done it.
All in all a good first episode. I don't like some of the cast. The border patrol guys were rude during the empanada challenge, getting so upset because they weren't doing it right. This doesn't bode well for how they will function with harder tasks down the road. I admit, it kind of bugged when the army guy automatically sided with them as 'allies' - don't know why it did, it just did.
Thankfully we didn't see that much of Rachel and Brenden. I don't usually watch much of BB but I've seen a bit of the show with them on. I'm expecting a big meltdown with them, sooner rather than later. I did like her "good job!" to the other team that beat them to the mat for first place, though. That showed good sportsmanship.
I love the twins. A musician and a soccer player? Yum.
Hate the guidos. I wanted them to lose so badly. I couldn't believe the girls missed Phil, and the look on his face...never seen that before! What were they thinking? I even thought I saw one look in his direction, but then they turned and ran out... Sad way to go, but they screwed up a few times that episode, so their demise was coming.
I kind of laughed at the older country boys. The clown lady who was crying...sheesh. I think maybe just a let down of built up emotions?
