    I have no problem with J/L being eliminated, although I wanted it to happen more last week. So she wants to get married, but he thinks it would ruin their relationship. hmmm

    The Brainiacs come in first place AGAIN. I don't find anything likable about these two and wonder how the other teams feel about the roll they are on.

    Jen and Nate deserve one another. Jen says they won't play the U-turn, because they want to win the race like men. What?

    The blonds seemed to think that J/L were right behind them instead of TJ/Rachel when they decided to play the U-turn.

    It would seem like the taxis tonight were arranged for and paid by TAR, since it seems unlikely that there would be a demand for them out there ordinarily.

    I was really surprised TK and Rachel didn't just do the dance--no matter how badly--and take the 10 minute penalty. That would have been a lot quicker than going to the other task and completing it.

    I liked how they couldn't figure out to use water to wash the mud away.

    It was nice to see the 2 older racers, finish in 3rd and 4th place.

    Less than 120 posts for this once great reality show. Surely TAR has jumped the shark.

    When Vyxsin was crying and went to put her head on Kyntís shoulder I thought he was about to jump out of the car. He seems to have some intimacy issues.

    I think I'm getting a little crush on Vyxsin.

    To me, Jason & Lorena came off as a very likable team in this episode, so it was pretty sad to see them go. I was hoping for an NEL so badly,
    Click to see Spoiler:
    though I already know that there are no more NELs to come.


    What a strong team Azaria & Hendekea are! First on three legs out of four (and the team that got first on the leg they didn't were already eliminated). I'm not a big fan of the two, but a fan nonetheless, so good for them! And with a footrace involved them and Jen & Nathan, I was glad to see them get first over the other two. Though I do like Jen & Nathan, they are aggravating at most times.

    Gosh, I did so badly on the prediction game. When everyone kept putting Jason & Lorena down for last, I thought there were some spoiler that I haven't read (I like to stay away from boot list spoilers). Turned out to be true. I thought of changing it to Jason & Lorena since everyone else did, but I just stuck with TK & Rachel getting first and Nicolas & Donald getting last. To my dismay, Nicolas & Donald passed TK & Rachel, with the latter almost getting eliminated.

    I thought TK & Rachel were cute when he was playing with the chicken and she wanted him to stop. It made me laugh. Definitely like them more after this episode.

    Whoa! The preview looks scary! I hope that bus stops or Shana or Jennifer (the one who's driving) puts it in gear. It could very well be another case like in TAR10 when Dustin & Kandice crashed their car in Mauritius (sp?), but much worse. Funny how the teams involved in a car crash are the blonde teams, though there's no telling if they really did crash since the preview didn't show any collision. It just looked like it.

    I thought this was a great show tonight.

    I think the lack of posts can be chalked up to it being a holiday weekend, not so much a lack of interest. At least I hope so!

    Vyxsin's reaction to what she was seeing with the people in Africa was really heartwarming. I hadn't noticed her outer beauty until tonight. She's beautiful inside and out.

    Kynt definitely looked uncomfortable with Vyxsin getting too close for comfort. Dating goths. Uh, yeah, right. Maybe dating others, but not one another.

    I also enjoyed tonight's show, but I'm a die-hard TAR fan.

    Last week there were less than 80 posts and the week before less than 130. However, I just looked back at earlier seasons and noticed that TAR has never had all that many posts. Traditionally the show has garnered around 130 posts per show.

    Yeah! Despite their statements to the contrary I'm thinking Vyxsin is way too much woman for Kynt. My impression of Kynt is that he bats for the other team. Or at least is their water boy.

    i don't think a lack of posters points to a show 'jumping the shark'. to jump the shark, wouldn't there have to be the combination of a departure from a shows original direction and belief? I think that TAR has returned to its original simplicity, the new U-Turn twist withstanding.

    i think the lack of posters are do to a combination of things - one is that it is a holiday weekend and two i think there is a trend towards people dvr'ing (what is the proper verb for that activity, anyway?) shows to be watched at a later more convenient time. so, it's not that the shows are being watched, they are being fit into increasingly busy lives. i think this is especially true of shows that get delayed by sports programs. All of a sudden that window of time a busy parent or working person has set aside is now gone and so is the time for commentary.

    Jen is such a poor sport. Jen wants first and she just expects someone to step aside and let her have it. Oh I'd let her have it alright, just not how she expected.

    Jen it is a Race and you are supposed to R.A.C.E

    Glad I'm not the only one thinking that about Kynt. I've gotten a weird vibe from him since the show started and I think that's it. The look on his face when Vyxsin put her head on his shoulder spoke volumes.
