This was a fun episode; not too hectic to be nerve-wracking, but with enough stress points to make it interesting. Rachel and Brendon did fine this leg - no whining that they showed and they kept up the pace. Like jadewarlock, I thought Rachel's face at the start of the oil cleanse challenge was was worth the focus. Poor Mark and his barf bags, but despite that, the KY boys did just great and had a good taxi driver. Border Patrol is letting their alpha male out with indicators pointing toward entitlement, but at least they recognize that the Race is tricky and they could fall at any challenge. Unless you consider Bopper and Mark an alpha male team, Border Patrol are the only one left since Jersey Shore (or I guess I should say Long Island) went home. East Coast beaten by Mid West in a test of strength. Ha. And a girl at that.
I'm sorry we have to wait two weeks to see Mark in Africa - he thought this leg (Azerbaijan) was in Africa because it sounded like it. These two neophyte travelers are a hoot and I hope they continue all the way to the final three.
