    I think Nick probably just comes across like a lot of younger people impatient, rude, and deserving. A lot of young people feel entitled to good things without giving any good out. The fact that he did not scream and holler though despite being duped by the ticket lady does show there is a good side to the guy.

    What a cool tip! Thanks.

Getting rid of the alpha male teams was a great change.
    So "diversity" is excluding the single white heterosexual males?

    Interesting.

    We do win everything and have had our "turn".

    What about Nathan and Jennifer? She acts like she's got a pair.

    "Alpha" doesn't mean,"single, white, heterosexual". Alphas can be black, or Asian, or Hispanic, or gay, or married to a woman, or married to each other.

    Alpha means a dominant, leader-of-the-pack sort, whether in actuality or in their own mind.

    Happy to see the whiniest teams gone, gone, gone. Now we can see some racing.

    I just meant strong male types. They could be gay, white, black, any race for tht matter. I am in the belief that most two male teams are going to go far unless a huge mistake as a lot of the race and tasks involves endurance and muscle. Now put two women bodybuilders on, and I might see them as the alpha team to so I do not appreciate thinking that I am saying something I am not.

    I love the diversity of teams on the race not so much the way they look, but the relationships and skill levels. I was sick of the token models, token sparring couple, token alpha male team in the finals each year.

    Now it is getting really interesting. My two favorite teams, Kynt/Vyxsin and Rachel/TK are still running strong. Kynt's attitude has been wonderful - first in Africa, then at the festival in Lithuania. I wonder which team will crash next - one of the family teams or Jennifer/Nathan? Ron's hernia could blow or from the previews, Nathan could throw Jennifer into the bay.

    I liked that they featured a small African country this go around. It was good for us (me) to see the conditions and how the people cope with what they are given.

    Another surprise for me was our brief glimpse of Lithuania. I loved seeing modern Vilnius contrasted to a countryside village. The midsummer festival was a real treat. That Travelocity gnome must have been visiting...LOL...and he brought a few relatives with him.


    P.S. Does Nick have a little crush on Christina? I thought I saw something last week, but it was missing this week?

    P.P.S. The U-Turn was an interesting turn of events. I like it - the waylaid team has to continue the challenge rather than sit, wait and get really ticked off. At least they can burn off some steam.

    As for this program -- Almost 1/2 the teams have been eliminated and I still don't have a favorite yet! I'm sort of leaning towards the Goths but I'm not quite there yet.
    You're good. I can only count in multiple of 2. My boss can count in multiple of 5.

    I hate all the teams this season. I guess for now on there will be evil blondes team each season. I wish they would have a season of equals so it can be an actual race.

    The blondes might be friends but they didn't work well together at all. Sorry to see them go.
