The Amazing Race - 4/26/2009 - (Live Commentary/Discussion)

Welcome Everyone!

Having a Baby's Gotta Be Easier Than This (China)

An Olympic task leaves racers gasping for breath. Animosity grows as two teams continue to hold a grudge against each other. One racer is paralyzed with fear-after coming this far, will they choose to go home? A Chinese foot massage puts racers through more pain than pleasure.

I knew it had to be something tonight, either non-elim leg or a continued leg, it just felt like they were gonna throw something in there

Okay, you can add me to the "get rid of Luke and Margie" camp now. Kisha and Jen were ready to just let it go and move on, but Luke and Margie refuse to get over it. I also had to roll my eyes when Margie was bitching about how Kisha and Jen didn't "honor the order we came in" when they went to get plane tickets. It's a race, for frak's sake!

True. But then most of the teams turn bitchy at each other at this point in the race every time.

Plus, Margie and Luke have won a lot of legs this season, so that's probably adding to their abrasiveness.

Re: The Amazing Race - 4/26/2009 - (Live Commentary/Discussion)

I cannot stand either of the female couples. Lakisha and Jennifer were both just completely stupid, and who knows what happened between legs when they were at the pit stop? They have 12 hours to bicker back and forth. We also only see about 35 minutes a week, out of an entire leg. There could be lots of fighting. Still, all the whining they did about the foot massage and then the swimming? It's fucking WATER, you moronic bitches! If you're so afraid of water, how the hell do you bathe?

As for the other pair, oh they need to fuck off. They were actually complaining about someone in China not speaking English. Um, hello? Once again, they demonstrate the stereotype of the "ugly Americans" ... I really hope they see themselves on tv and get so embarrassed they're forced to kill themselves.

Tammy and Victor - No opinion, really. *shrug* Sure Victor's cute, but other than that? I got nothing.

Margie and Luke - they're still my favorites. I really hope Luke wins. er, Luke and Margie.

Yeah, Jamie and Cara have been whining about the language barrier on every leg. And they treat their cab drivers horribly. Jamie is by far the worst of the two about it, though.

The Look on Jamie, Cara, and Phil's face at the end of tonight's episode was priceless.

Now I hope Tammy and Victor win the whole thing. I can't stand the other three teams left and definitely don't want the Cheerleaders to win. As for the whole thing between Luke, Margie and the other girls, I'm really trying not to care. Get the heck over it.

Cara and Jamie truly are ugly americans. Great episode, I loved the fact that it was a continuing leg.

I'll bet Victor wasn't happy when he found out it was a double leg. Poor guy was probably looking forward to resting his cramping legs.

I loved that.

I figured something was up when they kept showing Jamie and Cara complaining about never finishing first.

I gotta give credit to Kisha for supporting and encouraging Jen at the pool, but I have to wonder why they tried the synchronized diving in the first place. What made them think they could dive in unison when one of them was that afraid of the water? Seeing how much Victor and Tammy (who at least had forsight to take swimming lessons) struggled should have clued them in that sticking with the swimming (with life jackets) was the better option.

I was glad to see Luke volunteer for the foot massage (much to Margie's surprise). Those foot massagers seemed to really enjoy the pain they were inflicting! I'd like to see Luke and Margie win, but I won't be too disappointed if Tammy and Victor win the race. I'm glad they renewed the show for another year - I just hope they ramp up the challenges for next season - and that Phil learns to do something more than perpetually scowl.

I was surprised both by the simplicity of the challenges (an admitedly uncomfortable foot massage and 2x2 minutes of swimming) and by how much trouble the teams had with it...

Didn't it say that their dives had to be synchronized in the Detour description? Read the damn clue, people!
