    Uhh...rhetorical question? Heh...they have 3 (maybe) teams in the finish-line leg, and with 11 teams to start, that would only make for 9 episodes. They want 13, so they throw in 4 "Non-elimination legs" instead of just starting with 15 teams (too many).

    I am really uncomfortable with the racism inherent in this comment.

    TPTB like to talk about how the the Racers should be interacting with the locals, but then they force them to beg. It just gives me a queasy feeling.
    How many of us have begged money on the streets? To strangers, even?
    How many of us looked down to the people who beg money on the streets?

    I believe the NEL penalty for Bowling Moms was appropriate. Well, of course, it might be easier for them since there are cameras around them, so people believed them when they beg, but still, the experience to beg for money, and having no money at all is not something a lot of people have.
