    Here's tonight's commentary thread, plus a bonus poll! If you need a refresher on who's who, check out the cast page. (And yes, you may for a couple teams. Don't vote for everyone, please. :p)

    I'm not sure that I'll be live; the Race is on at the same time as the Jacksonville/Pittsburgh game, so I'll be watching that. Hooray for watching it online later.

    I won't be here for the commentary, but I'll be watching the show. At the moment, my fave team is the siblings Nick & Starr (and not just because they won last week!) :D

    So far (and thanks to a lot of face time) I really like Nick & Starr but I also really like Toni & Dallas (and am hoping for more face time for them).

    And if anyone is curious, on the East Coast the show will absolutely be delayed by football. When I know how long I will update.

    My favourites so far are Mark and Bill, Nick and Starr and Toni and Dallas. In fact, I think that would be an awesome final group of racers. :p

    That would be a great final three.

    Due to football overruns the race will start a half hour late. So at 8:30pm eastern time.

    Normal on the west coast.

    Ditto, I'll be watching as well when it is on, but won't be here for the commentary, and I too like Nick and Starr


    BTW, I got another soul to join the fun and craze that is The Amazing Race, I got my sister to watch last weeks premier and told her all about the show, she now loves it as well, so she'll be watchin, we both like to travel so this show is great fun, of course I'd love to do The Amazing Race, and if I did do it she'd be the person I would want to do it with :)

    I can't believe they spent all that time arguing over who'd sit up front. I understand the need to be close to the exit, but STFU! They were all annoying as all get out.

    I seriously can't stand Terence and Sarah. I'd smother him in his sleep.

    Wow, so many mistakes there at this detour, the girls digging in the sand LOL, Terence and Sarah completely passing the Taxi's cause he didn't want to climb a hill LOL

    Nick and Starr are awesome passing the other team

    The divorcees made me laugh. They were so sure they were doing the right thing. Umm...no.

    Terence and Sarah are idiots. If they stopped trying so hard to outdo the other teams, instead of just playing their game, they would do better.

    Anthony was annoying. If he wants the money, you gotta show up. He seemed to give up too easily for me. And the frat boys aren't going to make it. They think they are so smart, and they aren't.

    2 things I noticed about this episode. One, we have a season full of complainers. God how many couples complained complained complained. Suck it up and race already. Kelly and Christy, while hot, were stupid, Nick was over thinking everything, but on the plus side I understand the liking to Mark and Bill and Tina and her partner.

    The other thing I noticed and hopefully it's not me, but was the music really loud for anyone else. I've been having a real problem with CBS audio today (It happened during the Niner game which was awful) but I couldn't hear the dialoge. Turn the music down for heaven sake. It's kind of annoying to begin with and now it's just intrusive.

    I voted for Mark and Bill and Toni and Dallas. Mark and Bill were wise to choose the detour they did, as it put them ahead of all the other teams. The girls digging in the sand...how sad. But not as sad as when they couldn't figure out that their taxi was there the whole time later in the game.

    It's kind of weird that Stephanie and Anthony got eliminated, because from what we saw they weren't any worse than some of the other teams. They never made any huge errors and didn't take a disproportionately large amount of time on the challenges, yet they were always behind.

    Terence has issues. So self-centered and needy. And his bad temper isn't helping him.

    Two episodes in and I'm still kind of bored... and the nerds, I mean... the Yoda line was kind of embarrassing. :lol:

    I think they really need some kind of major game changer though. I'm not sure what they can do... maybe swap the team members at the beginning of the show or maybe have the teams start at different locations in the world and meet up at the same location for the pitstop or something. I dunno, I'm not clever enough to invent new game mechanics, but I kind of feel that they should do something.
