"Most of us go through life with blinders on. Knowing only that little station to which we were born. But you madam, have had the... rare privilege of escaping your bonds for just a spell. To see life from an entirely new perspective. How you choose to use that information is entirely up to you."
Andrew to Joanna in Overboard
I really want to know how these boring couples keep getting picked to be on the show. There has to be much more interesting people to cast than vanilla couples all the time. Jeremy and Sandy are so boring, but like all the boring couples before them they are physically fit so they make it far. With all the people in the US you would think we could find some interesting people.
Amani and Marcus are a great couple. They have personality and genuinely like each other. The snowboarders are ok, but we have seen alpha males dominate so much. I wanted Bill and Cathi to win, but so much of the race is physical. I wish it was more getting places and more mind usage. Even when it was memorizing they still had to ride the bike. Too much physical.
I was so sorry to see Bill and Cathi get eliminated. They are such a classy couple.
Marcus and Armani have warmed up to me. They need to keep the bickering and fighting down and I think they'll have a very good shot at winning this. I love his taking frustration now and using it as a pump up to get into the event.
I still like the snowboarders, but they're starting to falter (even with the 1st place finish today). They're going to have to play smart, and lately they haven't.
Ernie and Cindy ... like him, she's getting to be too much of a perfectionist it's going to hurt them.
Jeremy and Sandy are VERY lucky that they had enough of a head start on the body building challenge to survive. I personally would've told them the truth - a couple of those waffles were underdone just so.
Bill and Cathi just couldn't get a break, but I admire their positive attitude and gracious loss. This team is an example on how to behave in both good and bad times. I just wish they had one win to their name.
Sorry to see Bill and Cathi go. loved when Bill told the guy that they were on their first date as they paddled along.

I agree. I'd love to have a relationship like theirs or like Bill's and Cathy's!

When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
Since that time though - they haven't and I've loved seeing them race (even some of the more boneheaded moves they've made on occasion, causing them to be lost.)
You are right though - I'd rather have a relationship like theirs in general or Bill and Cathi's when I get married.
