    I think they did.

    Good grief, are we the only ones on tonight? And what is with all those people riding on top of the train? That can't be safe.

    Tilden, normally I agree (and I don't completely disagree), but in past seasons, I've always been disappointed to lose much stronger teams (and in some cases more likeable) to dumb luck while a team that barely gets by and can't make it without latching on to someone keeps on going. And of course the older couple teams from seasons past that I think could have gone the distance were some of the unlucky ones who were eliminated early on due to bad luck. Of course that's the race
    I think they've eliminated some of the "latching on" and I'm glad of that. I was thinking more along the lines of just being asked for directions. That sort of thing. Not actually taking anyone by the hand and leading them through.

    Yep, Ma and Pa have a penalty--but boy, they must have a lot of experience with tangled Christmas tree lights, because they whipped through those knots.

    Yeah, reason with vegetation. That always works.

    Everybody seems to be in a really good mood, but what happened to Ethan and Jenna? Are they even there yet?

    I do think it's gotten better than previous season, where 5 teams seemed to follow one, or they'd kidnap locals and hijack taxi's and make them guide them around. I wonder, after last season and the uproar over the cowboys getting ganged up on, if they'll be a rule about helping during challenges.

    Let's see if everyone remembers to read the clue all the way through.

    I hope there's a new rule about teams helping each other extensively during challenges, as it eliminates the entire purpose of the challenge. How "challenging" is it if some people are just handed the answer? I don't have a problem with a team telling another team in minor ways if they wish to--like deciding to travel in a pack to a location--but beyond that, they should have to work on their own.

    Love that Pa finished first, particularly since it wasn't the easiest physical challenge. Do think they could have set up the ladder so that people with longer legs could skip rungs but people with shorter legs weren't at an automatic disadvantage just because they couldn't reach from one rung to another.

    Dang, the snowboarders are way in back as are Ethan and Jenna. I don't care about Jenna, but I do like Ethan, and I'm hoping he's had a positive influence on her.

    Yes, the two of them, plus Ma & Pa are my favorite 3 teams. I never liked Jenna, but she sure has stuck with Ethan through thick and thin - guess he knows something about her we don't
