    Rolly redeemed himself for me when, after Rachel completed the 'spy' task he ran up to her and gave her what looked to be a heartfelt hug.
    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.

    It makes perfect sense now, why the producers are reluctant to unleash the current crop of "racers" onto an unsuspecting world. If they do this bad on the home turf, imagine these people in a foreign land. How long before they'd get upset in Asia because nobody speaks good enough English?
    Keep 'em close to home, I say, they do less damage that way. Other continents should be spared.

    I want to like this family. I really do. But if they mention the dead dad, or ask for Jesus' help to find the right highway exit one more time, I'm going to throw a large, heavy object through the TV screen.

    Hahaha. Oh yeah, you've got that right. And I wouldn't want to see the rolling of the eyes when one of the Weavers tell someone how they flew from Washington D.C to their country "but that's not in Washington state."

    That's funny, I was thinking the same thing every time they brought up Jesus. How well would that have gone over in...well, anywhere that isn't the
    States, really.

    I guess they are kind of safe asking people in the States the Jesus question. If someone came up to me and asked me "Do you know Allah?" I probably would be caught a little off guard.

    I guess the Weavers think God has the best version of MapQuest.

    Don't forget when they get interviewed, they get "coached" ie Ron TAR 7- For them to speak about their father/husband is part of their healing process..I am still going thru it too.
    I laughed too about the Washington/ State thing too, but that is an example of how bad the schools in Florida are. I like this team.

    It's also potentially offensive. What if she were to ask that of a Jewish person?
