Yes except for that place that looked like the homes were stacked on top of one another.

The poverty in many parts of the world is sobering. We need to reflect on our good fortune in being North Americans.


I sort of felt sorry for that couple who tried the FF to no avail. He was really devastated.

He was devastated - especially when they were in 1st place and now they are in last place unless someone really screws up badly.

I'm not too sad that it was the TMZ women who were eliminated tonight. They were more than a little snarky and very condescending towards the cheerleaders. And didn't one of the cheerleaders mention she has a Master's degree? You don't get that by being a dummy.

No I wasn't sorry to see TMZ go either.  They sure couldn't play volleyball worth a darn!  Those short cousins really did well at the volleyball - who knew???

It surprised me how many people who can't play volleyball, tried to play before switching tasks.  I already know that if I could even hit the ball it would be shear luck so I would have headed straight for the puzzle.

I usually have a favorite right from the start but no one is standing out to me yet.

I can't pick any favourites out based on the first episode either beardie. At the start there are so many teams it is difficult to get a feel for them in only an hour. 


That puzzle seemed ultra difficult to the ones attempting it.

There were a few I kinda liked but most of them I just didn't see enough of yet to pick a favorite or favorites.  The TMZ turned me off when the one started making snarky remarks about another team.  Guess Karma paid them back.  Another couple I will have a hard time pulling for is ThePaparazzi's -  that profession just leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.  Yuck

Yes one of the cheerleaders has a masters degree and that is what she put down as her greatest achievement.  The TMZ gal that made the snarky remark put down her greatest achievement as having Obama following her on Twitter.  SMH  Rolling Eyes

Did anyone else watch Friday night?  I don't know how I feel about the cousins going home.  The guy on the green team is really starting to bug me - last week he was crying because they couldn't do the fast track and it put them behind but this week he just annoying me for some reason.  It may be something about his eyes.  Confused

We need a couple of purely nasty and annoying teams to manifest themselves so we can dislike them along with some clear sweeties to pull for. Still too many teams left to sort 'em out. I am still not remembering names.

Last night the green team bugged me for the first time.  I was giving them the benefit of the doubt because the Texans seemed so arrogant and thought they were better.  The mother and son are also bugging me.  There doesn't seem to be a team that is extremely likable or with a story that you want to root for.  Not sure that I am going to care who wins this season.

The green team is very annoying to me and the mother son team was also starting to annoy me last night.  It didn't bother me to see the dancers go home last night and so far I am fine with the other remaining 6 teams.  I think they will start showing more of what they are like as the next few weeks progress.

The dancers should have had the same heartwarming story like the coal miners did.  They both had very rough lives.  Somehow I didn't feel it with the dancers, though.

All time favorite teams were the coal miners and the cowboys.

I agree with you about the dancers story and I kinda felt with them that was the life they were choosing instead of looking for regular employment.  To me they just seemed like they wanted the easy street.


The cowboys were my all time favorite team - I'm not remembering who the coal miners were.

The coal miners were on twice.  One was a tall blonde guy and I don't remember what the other one looked like.  Second time around, one of them needed surgery and had to pull out of the race and someone filled in for him.  I'm not finding a picture of them.  They busted their butts while playing and appreciated all that they got to experience.

The one - two finishers last night are not destined to become "my team" any time soon. A little too arrogant and taken with themselves. 


I sort of liked the dancers but they struggled from the start and you sort of knew they wouldn't be any kind of come from behind underdog story.


Mom and son aren't particularly sympathetic either.


There are several teams back in the pack who seem like good people and I hope they begin to get more attention as time goes on. I know that loud and obnoxious tends to get more camera time but usually TAR manages to balance that out with some good ones you want to see win.

TAR was better last night, at least to me. Still can't muster up any support for the green team. That Justin is just a tad on the arrogant side but his wife seems fine. After all the talk of U turning nobody did it! 


Victoria Falls was amazing and all the teams seemed thrilled with Africa. I was glad to see them all being very gracious and pleased with the welcoming ceremony preformed for them.
