Victor came across as a real douchebag in this episode. Hopefully that was editing taking over because it was unbelieveable that this team went from first to last only being lucked out by a team that made a crucial mistake.
I really liked Amanda and Kris in this episode for some reason. I think they work well together and other than the passports, they seem like a strong flying under the radar type team.
As for these teams making mistakes, I actually think this season is an improvement over the last in that aspect. The teams are actually reading the clues here, and that was a really big problem in 13. Sad to see Brad and Victoria eliminated but they wrote their own fate by taking that flight this early in the game.
