I disagree - while luck plays a BIG part in this challenge (no pun intended), I think what helped him find the flag was that he WASN'T bickering with his teammate. Given he wasn't doing that - he was focused on finding the flag (We don't know if or how many flags the others missed because they were fighting over how to do the challenge).Originally Posted by redjdv;3746004;
Also - Flight Time had a great idea and shared it with Big Easy - rip the sides apart as you unroll it. I think that's why - along with staying calm - Big Easy was as able to find it as fast as he did.
I am glad that Gary/Matt are still in the race - though I will admit I think that part of it is because Tiffany and Maria quit last week (I really think the NEL was going to be the previous leg), it's still good to know that a. Gary didn't give up (which would be VERY easy to do in that challenge), and b. they were rewarded for not giving up. Even if they are eliminated next go - they can hold their head up high knowing they fought and won one of the toughest challenges in the race.
