    8/10 Discussion thread

    Ok, I know the show is over most places but I have to say it. The Coote's are serious poor losers. I would have jumped all over the chance to stay in the suite with the Pollards.

    Congratulations Amy Pollard! Job WELL-DONE! You are teaching your daughter to become a strong woman and your son to marry one.

    And, you are teaching both kids fine, fine manners.

    The other thing I've been very impressed with is your positive spirit. You say that you are excited for new challenge. Most people would feel defeated and say "what's the use in trying". You come back each and everytime with a great can-do spirit (I liked that the DeSalvatores's finished, too).

    Good job!

    I'm with Dagwood. I would have a) invited the others to the suite had I won and b) jumped at the chance to join the Pollards in the suite had I lost! It was a wonderfully generous gesture, and you are right - life is better when you have someone to share it with.

    The Cootes seem nice enough, but it is clear they are in it to win it more than the experience itself, and that's o.k. Just not my cup of tea - from the luxury of my couch, anyway. I talk a good game, but when faced with the possibility of winning $100k, I may be just as competitive as the Cootes.

    Well I see the Cootes family are not only Bad winners but losers also. The children of the Cootes also seem to be as my Granny would say "Uncouth"

    The producers of this show should learn to NOT have Amie narrate the Las Vegas challenge in the suite. Oh gosh, how dumb was that? It wasn't even exciting to watch, since it was obvious that they won. Good for them though.

    The DiSalvatores the the B3 kings/queens! And yet they have bumbled their way through to the F3. I love them so much. I would so shocked and ecstatic at the same time if they won.

    All this time, I didn't notice that the DiSalvatore mama and the Pollard mama have the same name.

    The Cootes were seriously poor losers after they lost (and I was so glad to see them finally lose something!)

    I hope either the Pollards or the DiSalvatores win in the end.

    (I'm also glad they didn't kick a team off this leg of the race. It would have made for a very boring race with only two teams at the end!)

    Nothing wrong with being competitive. My problem was the fit the kids threw when they lost. I would have told them fine they could stay in the RV and went back to the suite.

    DiSalvatore's lost but this week was one where no one was sent home. Instead, the Cootes and Pollards competed for a night in a luxury suite in a Las Vegas hotel.

    The husbands holed-out in the suite while the wives and kids had to follow clues to find them. Whoever made their way to the suite first won. Amy + kids won. It was especially rewarding because one of the challenges was to spell out letters in to the name of a Las Vegas casino, "Excalibur". Amy had no clue about any casino names whereas Mrs. Cootes had been to Vegas several times but still lost.

    Then, when the Pollards won the night in the suite, they invited the Cootes and DiSalvatores to eat dinner in the suite. The Cootes' kids were sore losers and decided to stay in the RV. Meanwhile, the DiSalvatores visited with the Pollards in the suite an had a good time.

    I think they repeat episodes on NBC???

    True, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. Even the best of children have their moments. That could have just been a "moment" for the Cootes.

    Although, I hope the night in the RV included a discussion about sportsmanship.
