    I won't use the words "Ugly American" 'cause I'm Canadian, so that wouldn't be very nice of me. But seriously, there's a reason why western tourists have such a terrible reputation. Don't add to it.)
    Glad to hear that, being from Canada I have seen some pretty ugly Canadians on my travels, and some great Americans..

    I don't share the annoyance that most here seem to have with all the teams. Yeah, they're a little loud, but most of them seem pretty cheerful. Even those laid back boys were like "We'll get through this..." when they were far in last place. I much rather watch this bunch than some of the people that have been total jerks about everything.

    So much female contestants in the mud bath challenge! Of all the mixed teams, Cole was the only male to do the challenge. As far as the gems go, they're obviously colored glass. Actual gems of that size would be so incredibly expensive. And for the one that went down with the wrong type of gem, I'm not surprised at all. I'm not sure if the challenge description has more details about it (that large sheet of cluepaper obviously has more information than the basic lines they call out), but if not, I would probably go down and check myself to make sure the gem has to be of the right color. The precision of challenge details varies wildly, so color may not have been an important factor.

    I thought the brothers did ok during the first episode, but man, I don't expect them to last very long. I even put them in my pool team! Hope they get eliminated fast so they get replaced, rather than hang near the bottom for a bunch of episodes.

    I know! I knew when they were talking about how smart they were and how they were going to avoid making mistakes that they were going to do something dumb this episode. I was kind of amazed that they managed to squeak by without getting eliminated after being on a plane that arrived quite a while after everyone else and then messing up on the instructions after the volcano (or whenever it was that they went directly to the site without stopping at the other place).

    So, I was really amused that they had a cameraman sitting in the mud under the ladder in that pit. You could see him from a number of shots, just chilling with his little video recorder in the corner!

    Any time you saw a through-the-ladder shot I'm sure he was happy that the time spent in the pit was worth it!

    And stopping to talk with fans, which I think may be a problem throughout this race. How do you rush through a race and blow off fans when fans are your bread and butter as social media people?

    Sheesh.

    The Amazing Race nearly had a thong crisis

    I tried to read the linked article, but a ways in, I had one of those annoying popups that force you to subscribe, and won't go away even when you click No or the corner X.
