Ahhh, another bunch of nerds. Where has mswood been?

Between this and Amazing Race Asia, there's lots of travel porn action.

They're off to Brazil first! And it looks like Ken and Tina are already starting the drama.

I see the airplanes are off to their usual role as the great equalizers.

I am here. I just didn't know if anyone else cared, so I didn't start a thread.

Where the hell did Brent go?

And damn I wish TARA season 3 was shown when this edition wasn't on. Hint Spring or summer this year.

Oh well Porn is never a bad thing.

Brent is busy moving into a new place; he's relinquished control of the Stargate Atlantis threads to Meredith. I'll be happy to handle these.

I'm liking Nick & Starr, Mark & Bill, and Marisa & Brooke. Ken & Tina are ones to watch, too.

ETA: What do y'all think is coming after the camp? The Detour or the Roadblock?

As an aside, I'm quite glad they replaced the Yield with the U-Turn (assuming they're keeping it). The Yield itself really didn't fit well with the fast-paced race.

Yeah I hated the Yield. ANd the U-Turn is in this season.

However I do miss the If you get saved by the non elimination you have to first or take the 30 penalty. I like that better then the speed bump.

Nothing to add. I'm just glad the show is back, and pissed Phil didn't get nominated for Best Host. He rocks.

Oh, you'd be surprised. They're pretty par for the course.

Alas, not really surprising to see Anita & Arthur eliminated. They didn't seem like they'd been keeping up with everyone else.
