    Same here - I really think it's the heat of the competition and they apologized later on (either at the pit stop - if they saw the last team prior to them going to sequester, or after the show).

    And given the lack of sleep and not as much air, I can see tempers flare and was surprised that there wasn't MORE of it.

    count me in as another one who is glad to see Kent & Vixyn (mostly Kent though) get elminated! he was the whiniest baby ever! I don't know how Vixyn can stand him & his whining all the time. He's worse than any girl I've met!

    I do not see all goths like this, and as we've seen from Vyxsyn and say Gabby from "CSI," (I know a character but still...) they can be real cool. Kent is an exception to that, and I hope that the Kent we saw in this race really is from stress and the like.

    I am glad they're out, not because of V, but him. They'd been the only team I'd been upset with winning after the cowboys were eliminated.

    It is funny they did finish in the same place though - all the others I think have finished at least at (Gary and Mallory) or better than their previous finish. (I know for sure Zev and Justin).

    On the one hand, I am so glad Kent is gone. Honestly, he's the biggest "Took a Level in Jerkass" out of any of the people that have ever raced more than once. I do feel bad for Vysxin, though, since she was trying so hard, but she's in part to blame because of not making sure to read the clue properly. Seriously, when will racers ever learn to read the clue like 25 times to make surre you're doing stuff right? I also feel sorry for Vysxin taking all the heat in that task with the chocolate, since from what I saw, she really was working on her own molds, as she stated that she was a bit behind the others and put her mold in the freezer, than started working on the other.
    Yes, Vyxsin handled the situation very well. I probably would have started a chocolate fight.

    This episode also cemented why I dislike the Globethrotters. Not only cemented it, but made me dislike them even more than I used to. I've always hated their exceedingly loud and obnoxious behavior overall (which is why I was so thrilled when they up and quit the race in their original season), but tonight they took it an extra level further by acting like whiny children with the trash-talking and mockery towards Vysxin, especially the big one, whoever he is, I don't care to know who's who between them.
    If this were out of the ordinary for them, then I would chalk it up to stress, etc. However, after that atrocious behavior in last week's episode, I am not willing to give them a pass. This is especially true since, as somebody pointed out, they've been handed the answer to a challenge twice this season. Because of all this, they've lost all the goodwill I had towards them.


    Out of all the teams left, these guys are the ones I don't want to see win. I don't like Zev & Justin either, but at least they've been stronger racers overall.
    As I said above, I really wish G/M or Z/J would win.


    Vyxsin's final comment was just creepy. It's like those statements that abused women make when they've been brainwashed into defending their partner's behavior.

    Sometimes folks with Asperger's can be unintentionally hilarious. Today, we were working on Mother's day cards in the class I teach. A student of mine with the condition wrote in hers, "I love you, Mom, even when you're a real pain." At the time I discovered it, I was shocked and made her re-do it, but now I find myself laughing. Good thing we don't all tell the truth, or Hallmark would be out of business!

    I still love the Globetrotters. Don't blame them for being upset that someone took their mold. And this is a game for a million dollars... they got a penalty on an earlier leg for accidentally taking someone's fanny pack (and they put it back) so, if I were them, I would want to ensure that whomever took my mold got a similar penalty. I am disappointed with the producers for not following up on this and awarding a penalty to whomever took it. (they must have it on tape)

    And some have mentioned being upset with the GT's because of last weeks show... you mean U-turning the Cowboy's? Well that was a smart game move. The only team they were sure was behind them was the CB's ... if they wanted to ensure they wouldn't be eliminated they HAD to U-Turn the guys.

    Not at the time but now that you mention it...

    I'd really been pulling for Kent & Viksyn in the beginning of the season but Kent lost me when he pulled that guy out of the taxi in India. All he's done since that point is whine and let Viksyn do all the work. Best teammate - hah!

    I'm glad Zev & Justin were able to pull it out. They had me worried when they went to the wrong house. Also, the last couple of weeks have been nice, not having to listen to Mallory begging for God's help every other breath.

    Can't believe next week is the finale.

    I agree - what was the "atrocious" behavior??? They had to give them the U-turn in case they got lost or stuck in traffic. I love the GT and hope they win !!!!

    Yes, save the incident this week and then over celebrating passing Jamie and Cara after being U-Turned and completing the dinosaur (which given the redhead's attitudes I wasn't too upset), they have overall been respectful of players. In fact, from the vibes I get from the cowboys, they actually respected the GT's decision to U-Turn them.

    While I'm not happy with what happened last week, the only people to be upset with are the producers for not thinking smart in how to handle that road block. Anyone with half a mind who wants to make the teams have to face doing it again would make the person at the checkpoint read the odometer and not make them write it down again. The lesson learned would be to follow the map to the letter and sharpen their path skills.

    Yes, they do need to rein in their emotions or it will cost them the race, but I can understand their behavior as any of the teams. I would probably act the same way if I was exhausted, tired, hungry and the like. It's probably why I did support Ron's idea of eating as they went along, even if it irritated Christina and she had to tell him to stop, it was smart thinking because he had enough energy to get as far as he did.

    I didn't mind the Globe Trotters getting a little upset and questioning what had happened, but taking it out on Vyxsin in such a mean way, when they didn't even know who had mixed things up, and it was almost certainly done by accident anyway, was a view of their character I didn't like.

    Why pick on Vyxsin that way and not the sisters for instance? Why not just say you're upset that a mix up happened and leave it at that? They seem like they are used to getting their way by charm, but if that doesn't work they turn on the intimidation.
