    Re: 3/23 TAR 24: Episode 5 **West Coast Spoilers**

    Boy, that would be tough for me...I used to love sewing and was pretty good at it. Then didn't do it for years and a couple years ago, when I couldn't find quite the right dress for an event, figured I'd just make one. Um...didn't happen! lol I just love FT and BE so much! I was getting a little worried, not knowing how far behind Margie and Luke were, and, like Rachel said, Margie would probably whip right through the sewing. Was nice to see them be so gracious at the end, I think they probably had a lot of time knowing they were last to get used to it. So happy for Connor and Dave, they're really doing great this season! And also having no major problems with the teams left, even the Afghanimals and Brenchel! And the country girls are back to how I somewhat fondly remembered them. Never would have thought when they got that Express Pass that they'd actually push themselves up with it!

    This season? Likely, though they didn't have much freedom in flights up to now. The last two episodes limited the contestants to pre-reserved flights.

    Overall, no. For example, last season had a team eliminated as they were about to leave the airport, because all the other teams had long since checked in.

    From what I understood, their flight left 10 hours after everyone else's flight. However, everyone else was held up by a good couple of hours at the temple waiting for it to open, so they caught up good there. Not nearly good enough, though.

    I'm not sure if they did the sewing test. TAR often lets teams skip test if they are already eliminated because all other teams checked in before them.

    It might, or it might not. They were the 7th team. Whichever team was 6th still managed to reserve tickets, so it really depends if the tickets were sold out before they could have gotten to the travel agency or between the moment they could have gotten to the travel agency and the moment they arrived at the airport.

    David and Conor's driver said it was 90 kilometers to the airport so that's about an hours drive or so. Also the the first team (Cowboys) left the Pitstop at 2:26pm and the last team (Brenchel) left almost 4 hours later ... at least an hour's drive to the airport and then time to find the travel agency plus the flight was leaving at 11pm I could see the flight being full up.

    Because of the large prizes involved, this show is considered a game show. After the game show scandals of the 1950's the networks developed a Broadcast Standards and Ethics group to oversee game shows and to insure that they were conducted honestly. I am certain that NEL's are determined long before the show is filmed and cannot be changed at the last minute. If NEL could be determined as the race was being filmed I am sure that by now there would have been many lawsuits screaming foul. And, the press would have had as much fun with it as they had in the 50's.

    It was simply bad luck for Margie and Luke. Nothing more.

    My dream season continues!

    Here's something I never thought I'd say, Brenchel didn't annoy me last night!

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    The Amazing Race and Survivor predetermine when certain events happen way before the actually filming; that can be a happy coincidence for some players and not so happy for others it is just the luck of the draw its how the players react and deal with it that makes for fascinating TV.

    'Sides the FCC would be all over the networks for manipulating the ending of a contest like that. The wonderful thing about reality TV is that the contestants/players provide all the drama themselves and the producers don't have to worry about throwing that in.

    The Globetrotters are by far my favorite team. Watching FT entertain the factory workers while BE was sewing was awesome. They truly are goodwill ambassadors! The never argue or fight amongst themselves - they are so much fun to watch.

    I agree, they are so fun. I would mind at all if they won

    I'm probably alone here, but I was sorry to see Margie and Luke go home. I like them now and have always liked them as a team. I find their close relationship appealing and they do know when they've acted badly. I'll miss them and wish them well.

    On the other hand, I'm tired of having to fast forward through half the show to avoid having Brandon/Rachel constantly thrust on me. There isn't a team left whom I don't find more entertaining, even Leo and Jamal who are not my favorites.

    I loved the Globetrotters their first time around and still do. They are so enjoying the experience and entertaining the natives at the same time. That's their job, of course, but they do it so well.

    Dave/Connor were my favorites going in and they retain that position. One of the best teams ever in Amazing Race for me.

    I'm also glad that after two previous seasons they also finally gave Luke the chance to talk about being gay on the broadcast, as I know it's something that he wanted to say.

    As far as "classy exit" edits go, the show gave them a really nice one. I wish them well, too.
