    My favorites are the Globetrotters. Theyr'e so much fun! Then next I guess it would be Meghan and Cheyne. They seem nice and do well. Not sure about Cheyne's hair, though.

    Brian and Erica are fourth for me. I like them, and haven't really minded Erica. Sure, she's had her bad moments, but I don't think she's been nearly as bad as a lot of you do.

    The brothers are definitely my least favorites. I didn't like them a whole lot before, and they've been worse the last couple of weeks.

    And I agree that I can't believe the Race is almost over! It seems like it just started! This show really flies by! Two girls from my office just started watching it this season and love it, so that's cool. New viewers!

    Regarding the fairness of having professional athletes like the Globetrotters competing...their athletic prowess didn't really seem to help them that much in the volleyball match last night.

I also like the Globetrotters because they are running a good race, while enjoying themselves. I think alot of the teams lose the fun and excitement of what they are doing when they get caught up in stress and drama. This is the opportunity of a lifetime and I want to see them have fun with it.
    Megan problems is that she whines a lot when the task is too hard.
    Erica has toned it down lately. They are both good people with issues.

    I think that Ericka is an impossible, bad-attitude woman and likely doesn't deserve the likes of Brian. I am terribly sorry that the Montana boys got knocked out of the race. I am behind Meghan and Cheyne, *um cough*. Meghan can't get enough camera time as far as I am concerned.
    I hope the final three are Sam & Dan, Cheyne & Meghan and Brian & Ericka, but, I am not holding my breath.
    I'm sorry but I don't see that in Erica. All I see is a woman trying to play in the game and stay ahead of the others.

    I personally don't have a problem with the Globetrotters playing - these two aren't as well-known as some of the earlier players or a couple of the current players. If it had been any of those groups... yes, I could see a complaint.

    Plus, we had Mel and Mike last season - both known in the film industry, and in a large-enough scale that they could've been considered ineligible to race, but they raced.

    Either case, I haven't minded because they were all good racers.

    I know that the Globetrotters are an easy mark as far as the tumble - i.e. that it was intentional - but Big Easy did slip and fall. What I do NOT think happened was that either of the duo's antics were intentional - that this was an accident. It wasn't like the "Bitch" comment last season, which was intentional (whether or not Margie should've signed it to Luke is the bye-and-bye, it still was said with malice). That said, I don't think it was smart for Big to make such a big deal about it, but how he channels that anger out will be either their success or downfall.

    We still have one NEL left, which I would guess will be this coming week.

    What I think will be the issue is next week when the brothers go after the taxi belonging to Erika and Brian - I think it'll be a penalty, but of course that would depend if E&B paid the taxi to stay just for them. If they did, then S&D better not be able to use it or they should be penalized because that is indeed theft - whether or not the driver chose to do so. (or, Worst case, it'll instigate a new rule, which would be nice in that case).

    Count me in as another who was real sad at seeing the father/son leave.Does anyone know if Erica was a former Miss America? I know she's a Beauty Pageant contestant. I thought she was a Miss (State of whatever state she's from). But, I thought Brian said last night, she hadn't won anything in the pageant until she won Miss America. I really like Brian, but Eriica not so much.
    I don't need all my reality show contestants to be dramatic.
    However, in the case of Megan/Cheyne, I do find them very generic and, sadly, lacking personality and highly unmemorable.
    I don't really think the HG'ers have an advantage in the race because of their athleticism. Time and again, this race is won by a team who has not been overly athletic.
    I'd like HG to win, but the odds sure seem to be favoring Megan/Cheyne.

    Thanks Captain. I had no idea. I'm surprised I never knew/heard of her before now.

    Good post Olaf. Took the words right out of my mouth.

    Okay, with all the talk about the GT's being professional athletes and some mention of $$ I'm picking up on the vibe that some feel that are wealthy. Because the GT's are a privately held entertainment company it's doesn't appear that it is possible to find actual concrete information of their salaries, however, from everything I've read it seems that their BEST players do make in the six figure range. However, it needs to be noted that this is for it's BEST. There have probably been any number of folks who have been on this show that make 6 figures. That shouldn't really matter. There have also been plenty of athletic folks, they just weren't making their living in that particular way. The Globetrotters are indeed exceptional in their arena, they aren't necessarily the best of the best or they would be playing in the NBA where they could make a ton more money. They are entertainers who happen to be very gifted in basketball. As to having an advantage in the more athletic events; until they decide to have a game of HORSE or such decide a leg, I'm good with it.
