    I feel bad for Nicole during the Jeepnee decorating as the directions are very confusing, parts are labeled in a really strange way: Right Front, Right Rear, Left Front… etc. Poor Nicole has no idea what “Left” means. Those damn producers… that’s just not nice.

    Nicole wants to choose Fowl, but Brandon says the ducks will “Fly and Yap and stuff”. Hmmm, yapping ducks? What’s next…quacking Toy Poodles?
    Welcome back, Cali! Great job as always, I don't think you have to worry about your job.

    excellent recap, cali! Clever stuff in the face of the worst behavior by a group of human beings in public.

    You made it funny.

    I'm sorry to correct you marybethp but the vehicle is called "jeepney," the most popular vehicle in the Philippines used for public transport (and now, also adapted by Papua New Guinea as mode of transportation).

    Anyway, I hope you'll visit our beautiful country and see the beauty of the Philippines!

    Top Places to visit:

    1. Boracay (because of the beach)
    2. El Nido, Palawan (breathtaking scenery, the last frontier of the Philippines)
    3. Makati City, Philippines (go shop and dine! also, the country's Wallstreet)
    4. Cebu City
    5. Vigan (Ilocos Sur) for the magnificent Spanish houses

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Why did they get away with that?

    I thought exactly the same as you about the Yield. Why does anyone consider it more unfair than the Fast Forward? Both are devices for getting ahead of a team or teams. Is it because the Yield is targeted at only one team, while the Fast Forward is targeted at all of the teams? What if a team knew they were in next-to-last place and decided to go for the FF? Would the team who came in last start screaming that it was unfair that someone had stooped to using the FF? C&C certainly didn't have any problem using the FF themselves in Episode 5 . . . I'm curious to know why they think using the Yield is so down and dirty. I'd bet my last dime that if the race was in the final stages, and C&C found themselves in jeopardy, they wouldn't hesitate to use the Yield, despite what they claim. It's alot easier to say you wouldn't use the Yield on any other team when you don't really have a need to. But, when push comes to shove and, and seeing what we have of C&C, I think they'd use the Yield in a heartbeat. Pity that now, if they do use it at some future point, I'm sure they'll try to say it was justified due to the treatment they got from the others.

    But, enough about C&C for now . . . thanks again for your too, too funny recaps of The Amuzing Race.
    The Yield was designed because of the emotional factor and response that would come out from the Yielded team.
    If this were a car race, the Fast Forward is like everyone has a one shot nitro booster. The Yield is like one team sabotaging the other's car.

    The clue was dug out by the plow. But Colin can't do three things at the same time: steer, plow and check the ground. Especially since the carabao was moving too fast. If Christie didn't come closer, she wouldn't have noticed it.

    In AR3 finale, Flo & Zach had to choose a Detour where they have row themselves to an island with them little boats or deliver with bicycle a hundred baskets. They eventually chose rowing but it was difficult so Zach got a couple of locals to do it for them.

    In a website interview, Flo admitted they got penalized for that because they were supposed to row themselves. So, they were given a penalty of one hour delay. Of course, when the episode was shown on TV, they didn't bother to tell the viewer they got penalized. Probably not worth mentioning?

    My VCR had issues and I didn't tape last nights show. I was hoping you would recap it but was pleasantly surprised at how fast it was. Awesome recap! Great format too, with the tasks descriptions first and then the individual teams. All my favourite quotes have been taken but again, super job! Thanks Cali!
