I have to wait until Tuesday night to watch the Amazing Race so that my children can watch with me. They love the show and I will not allow them to stay up to watch (I know I am a mean mom). Anyway, we just watched this week's episode and here are my basic thoughts.
I love that the cowboys are doing so well because no one thinks that they are very smart. The kids and I even watched the "Elimination Station" (this is online and shows when the booted teams arrive at the holding place until the show is over) and everyone was shocked that the Cowboys were still racing. My only complaint is that this week all activities seemed geared to keeping the Cowboys in first place. I mean lassoing and horses; what more could they have asked for?
I felt so bad for Caite and Brent and the puking. You know Caite had to be just appalled by the fact that she threw up on national television. They pulled it together and did not finish last (just barely) but I am wondering if their delicate little bodies can handle the grueling race.
Kudos to the dad and daughter team (Steve and Allie) for jumping ahead a few spots to finish in 2nd place. They ran a great leg; even with Steve falling (again).
As for the eliminated team. I did not feel either way about Monique and Shawne. They seemed like good competitors but we really did not get to know them at all.
One final note...funniest line of the night; when Jeff looked and Jordan and said "I am not sure if we should reproduce" after failing to understand the clue for the 3rd or 4th time. They are quickly becoming my favorite team.
