Re: The Amazing Race 21

Weird episode. Once again I really think the judge gave in after teams had made several tries (you can tell the teams didn't do it totally well and still got through), just like the dance move task earlier this season or last. And WTF James and Abba - choosing Swimming over library; leaving ALL your stuff in the taxi and getting mugged? Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. The edit of Ryan confused me - he could be a villain but a good guy all of a sudden.

James and Jaymes were stellar in this episode. I start liking them more and more

Re: The Amazing Race 21

Episodes in Russia are always worthy , those ABBA guys are useless, losing their money, getting injured, losing their passports and bags... giving up on the library task, really? I mean if one of the dumbest teams like Tray & Lexi did it, it couldn't have been that difficult, cyrilic alphabet isn't that difficult once you read it a couple times.

Of course they will be lucky enough to find the passports, too much air time lately, with all the cancer drama. I hope I'm wrong.

Swimming task was fun

Well, you were wrong.

This episode was a relatively boring procession, but that's not really the producers' fault. There wasn't much they could do about it. I did notice however that there was nothing mentioned about what time each team was leaving from the starting point, which makes me wonder how long each team was at the pit stop.

Oh, and the twins' wardrobe malfunction.

Re: The Amazing Race 21

again the twins made it really funny lol. on purpose or not, those girls are the funniest ones they got on the show I think. I was a bit skeptical about the time not showed too, I guess it was because there was a huge gap between the time they were departing that it was going to be too obvious who was going to be last. The time zone challenge fail by so many team was hilarious! The "teacher" there seemed so nice tho but he had to play it hard lol

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

But agree, boring as hell episode, tasks weren't too bad but they didn't even leave the city and there wasn't much room for improvement. Those fails at the roadblock I guess they aren't used to those time zones but I mean everyone knows 0 starts in Greenwich right?

Re: The Amazing Race 21

They didn't say GMT; they said UTC. As a long-time short-wave radio listener from back in the days when international broadcasters were on shortwave, I know UTC, but I'm not surprised average people don't.

There have been any number of non-elimination/two-episode legs where teams get to the pit-stop and Phil tells the teams to keep racing; such legs generally don't involve teams going all that far. But such legs tend to be a procession, as I mentioned above. I'm reminded of a season or two ago in Belgium.

Re: The Amazing Race 21

It was basically a clash of rules: not allowed to check in without passports vs. can't eliminate anyone at a NEL. Now we know the latter takes precedence.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Re: The Amazing Race 21

I'd guess that's only because the leg was going to be entirely within Moscow, and James and Abba weren't going to have to produce their passports.

Re: The Amazing Race 21

That was actually a FUN episode even though the result was NID. James and Jaymes in uniform + changing Dumb Ryan doing the SAME thing for 20 times till he realised he did it wrong and twinny's wardrobe malfunction

Fun thing's coming up next week as well

Re: The Amazing Race 21

I would love for one of these last place races to the finish instead of the usual "let's enjoy it while it lasted". I want drama!

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Re: The Amazing Race 21

Dull episode. I think rockers should have been eliminated in the previous leg, like this the outcome of the episode was NID. I hope all teams will be on the same flight in the next episode so we get to see some drama.
