By the time the woman decided that she was going to do Zev's armpits he looked like he was about to explode. Those two were truly at a disadvantage during that task.
    I felt so bad for them, but they got through it. As a woman, I've had occasional waxing over small areas (eyebrows, upper lip), and it's not that bad. But those poor hirsute guys . . . that must have been the equivalent of someone ripping out a handful of head hair. The workers looked like they were pulling up carpet strips!

    I'm okay with the winners. I just hope that in future seasons, the producers learn from what I think were mistakes this season. Teams should NOT be allowed to just give out answers to the mental challenges; those should be opportunities to level the playing field for those who aren't as physically fit as others. I was really surprised at how casually they were giving out those answers.

    And any contestant who urinates in public should immediately be disqualified from the game.

    Unless it's on the mat in front of Phil, and they were avoiding a Jen and Kisha moment.

    I took Justin's comment to mean he might reflexively whack the waxer.

    I got a major crush on Justin this season with the way he treated Zev. He really showed patience and friendship.
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    Different countries have different standards, and I don't think anyone should be disqualified for doing as Romans do when in Rome, particularly if it is a country with next to nothing in public facilities.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    I've seen comments similar to this in the past. In this particular circumstance, the GTs were headed INTO the huge national library building in Vienna (which one can only assume had indoor plumbing). They couldn't have been more than 2 minutes away from an indoor restroom. To have urinated in such a public area under those circumstances was - and always will be IMO - unacceptable.

    Trying to give the guy the benefit of the doubt, I even Googled to see if there are public urinals in Vienna . . . hoping that he was at least using a urinal. There's nothing I can find that there's a urinal where he relieved himself. In that case, I don't think it's any more acceptable for him to have relieved himself there than it would be for anyone from Austria to do so on the outside of one of the buildings of the Smithsonian.

    As I posted at the time, I lived in Europe for several years. Trust me, this was not something that I ever saw. There are plenty of places with indoor plumbing, and most major cities provide public toilets. What the GT's did was inexcusable.

    I noticed this! I thought it was really uncalled for! I liked them a lot too. Because of this, I wasn't too sad to see them go when they did. Sadly, it seemed like Zev had lashed out a little bit before this. I was completely shocked that it was Justin who was saying that!

    I'm one of the ones who thought that Justin was simply joking, or at the very least just speaking out of pain. Unlike the GT's, there wasn't any prior behavior that led me to think he would be mean.

    Anyone who has had to be waxed - women or male, knows it's a painful experience. To be fair, if it kept either sane, I can see them reacting like they did.

    I don't fault either for reacting like they did, and they probably apologized after.

    From what I've read, Justin's comments were from the movie "40 year old virgin" when the main character, very hairy, gets taken by his friends to get his chest waxed. He basically shouted out the same things. The comments were in no way serious. I'm actually shocked anyone would think they were! The movie scene was hilarious, but yeah, a lot of threats while they were ripping off the hair.
