    Love it! I hope I enjoy these guys as much as I did the Globetrotters from a few seasons ago.

    Really sad to see them go. I loved their attitude, still smiling through all those delays. I was so hoping for a non-elimination.
    Congratulations Mickey and Pete!

    It was really the fault of the first agent who booked them on a flight a day later than she should have. After that they had to take what they could get and that seemed in involve the multiple layovers. I thought it should have been an NEL, too, since they first mistake was not theirs.

    I completely agree Florimel. I normally don't get pissed off with the show - but I did last night.

    If it had been a NEL I think there would be a lot of complaining about it being fixed. They had new tickets and did not need to exchange them. That was a wrong decision.
