    Okay, Lori and Bolo appear to be screwed at the train station, so here's my question: if the clue says "take a train to Budapest," how much of a time penalty would a team get if they took, say, a cab instead? Haven't the previous penalties been on the order of half an hour or so? Faced with a multi-hour lag behind the other teams, what do Lori and Bolo have to lose by just saying "screw it," grabbing a bus to Budapest, and taking the penalty at the pit stop?

    Not that they will, of course, but in that situation, I'd probably do it....

    The penalty for breaking race rules is 30 minutes, plus any time gained by the violation. (The time gained in this case would be the difference between their theoretical arrival by taxi, and the scheduled arrival time of the first train they could have taken to Budapest.) So you can't break the rules and come out ahead.

    Ah; thanks for clearing that up.

    I think the best chance they have of not being eliminated is if it's a non-elimination leg. I wanted to see them get far because they are kind of cute in their own way as a couple........definitely nicer to each other than Jon and Victoria.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Awww!!! It was super sad to see them stranded at the train station. Sometimes Lori can get all loud and shouty, but I must say...no matter what they're doing..they're always polite to each other (in a racing sorta way). I felt so bad when the car they were driving died. Moreso than any other team's breakdown. They were just driving along, doing the best they could..no arguing, no bitching...just racing.
    The car died and Lori goes.."Well, that's it...it's done".. no screaming or bitching..like every.other.team.did. Bolo checks the engine and says, "It's gone..nothing I can do"...no screaming and bitching.

    I am wishing SO HARD that they get a FF or something happens that keeps these two cool cats in the game.

    PLEASSEEEE TAR GODS, DO SOMETHING FOR LORI AND BOLO!!!! PLEASE!!

    Yeah, I hope these two somehow pull it off and stay in the game. Bolo is genuinely polite to the people when asking for directions, tickets, etc. even when he knows they are in last place Ö and then there is that revolting, self-centered a$$hole jerk who abuses anyone he comes in contact with.

    Bolo and Loriís weakest link is they are so bad at reading maps!

    I noticed that as well. Bolo is always friendly when asking for directions or when talking to people on the streets. I got a bad first impression from the first and second episode, but they are really starting to grow on me.

    same with me, speedy. they were pretty annoying the first couple of episodes, but since they have grown on me a bit. they still aren't my faves by any means, but i no longer find them offensive.
