    I think Brenchal and the Afghanimals are well behaved this season and I am enjoying them along with the other teams.

    Love the elephants. There is an elephant preserve in Thailand where several of the elephants actually paint pictures you can buy to help support the preserve. Original Elephant Painting

    I also didn't get the panic to come in first this leg. Sure, there's an awesome prize, but to run over the train tracks was stupid on the Afghanimals part. Sure, it's unlikely you would be hit by a train, but you could easily sprain an ankle and then what good would coming in first this leg do, if you're hurt for the rest of the race?
    I would think that the race would not let them do that, race over the railroad tracks. It's against the law in train stations in most place because of how dangerous it is. I know it's unlikely, but that the race would take a chance on someone being so desperate to come in first that they would race a train across the tracks seems like a dumb move by TPTB.

    If the Garanimals had gone up and over the track they would have been further behind the Cowboys and I think it's very likely the Cowboys would have been in first, but I don't see why it's so important to be in first this leg, everyone was acting like it was the final leg or something!

    I feel the same, and yes, the elephants were wonderful

    Multiple teams crossed tracks multiple times (the first being when a bunch of them jumped out of the train on the side away from the station and across tracks and under barriers to get to the tuk tuks that were waiting to take them into town). It's very dangerous, and they should be penalized for doing it.

    As for why everyone was racing to the pit stop, I wonder if it's because the Trunks group and the paper-making groups were separated, and no one knew their relative standing and what place they were going to be in when they got to the mat.

    I loved this episode. There was so much going on at such a fast pace. I would never be able to do this race!

    I know the express pass is for the cowboys to use, BUT, (always a but) is there anything that says they cannot give it away?

    There's me, yelling at them.
    I don't think they are allowed to give their own pass away (just like they weren't allowed to not give away the other pass). And, honestly, I don't see any way in which it would behoove them to give it to another team.

    weeeeell it is the Amazing Race and all the teams are pretty competitive and that is exactly what the Cowboys said in one of their soundbites and as far as they knew all the paper making teams were already there.

    I can't get the link, is that the one in Chiang Mai? I really want to go there, hopefully, it'll happen! I had a hard time following the tuk-tuk task...too much going on and me covering my eyes because I thought someone was gonna get maimed. I honestly am okay with almost any of the remaining players winning and I haven't thought that for a few seasons...my absolute favorites are the Globetrotters and then the Cowboys but the rest have earned my respect...especially the ones I couldn't handle before: Brenchel and the Afghanimals.

    She hasn't been as horrible as she has in the past...BUT...I have NOT forgiven her for ruining two seasons of Big Brother for me!
