Bump for AR season 32 premiere tonight! Including a link to my favorite AR clip of all time.  I could watch this a million times and still LMAO. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8cfeTZNcA3g

No surprise tonight.  Maybe only surprise was how crappy that team reacted to being U-turned.

That's a great one.

But my favorite is still the Water Slide fail with Flight Time and Big Easy.

Well, not shocking that Nathan and Cody were eliminated first. But it was surprising that the Olympians and Football players did so badly.

Looks like the volleyball players will be tough. Hard to believe that Chee and Hung won the leg after that goofy approach to the fish challenge.

I think that was the first time I've ever seen Phil at the mat say "But you're still racing, here's your next clue!" to every team but one. Has the "Pit Keep Going" ever been an elimination?

Nope. This was the first time that a team was eliminated on a no-rest leg. Sucked for Nathan and Cody.

We were wondering that. Couldn't think of it happening before.

I'm glad the NFL team made it through. I didn't think he'd ever get the steel drums.

I picked the Olympians as an early favorite but that was a rough start.

Michelle and Victoria were showing early signs of being the obnoxious team this season.

Totally. She mentioned something about the Korean team (something odd like that), him having to know piano and just acting like they were better than everyone else. It might just be that one sister that messed up the steel drums. The other one didn’t seem as bad and even kind of made fun of her for not doing well.

Yeah, I was really hoping to watch that time bite it on the goat run 3 or 4 times, was pretty disappointed when they got it on the second try.

I was hoping for the same.  She keeps failing and at least another team passes them.

After watching the Olympians blaze past those racing goats, I was surprised that they got eliminated so soon. They seemed like the best conditioned team. They just couldn't gain any ground after their first bad finish. Total opposite of D-Will and Gary who moved up from tenth to second and could have won the leg. Sweet make-up too.

I wasn’t surprised. They weren’t good at the challenges. Being fast helps if you are right next to people for a foot race but that’s pretty rare. I don’t recall a single challenge they finished really fast so they weren’t long for the game. The blonde sisters, nerds and father son haven’t impressed yet either so don’t think they’ll make it far compared to the rest of the teams.

I haven't watched this week yet (and am studiously avoiding any further posts), but please let them be eliminated soon.  She was awful.  Maybe keep them for a couple of weeks for someone to root against, but I'd hate if they were there at the end.

Right now, most likable team is the NFL guys,  followed by the Chinese team.  I really want to root for the father/son, but damned if that Dad doesn't always look like he's sucking lemons.  Sorry to see the hillbillies go first round since it is probably the only chance they'd get to travel the world.

Interesting episode for showing the creation of the five team alliance. I thought that the statement by the beards that they trusted Will and James sounded like a set up for the exact opposite to happen. It looks like Will and James are getting a villain edit.

Not surprised to see Frank and Jerry get eliminated.

No need to have used the U-Turn on Leo and Alana when you are first. Just created an enemy that will focus on your destruction.

Agreed.

And if you do use it, why waste it on one of the weaker teams when there are plenty of strong ones left?

To be fair, if the father/son weren't completely incompetent, it would have worked... they could have taken a challenger from nearly second place all the way down to eliminated.

How do you drive around Paris for six and a half hours and not find the arcade? A hotel, a store, a travel agent? Someone must be able to help you find it relatively fast. Even the blonds found it faster and they had the speed bump.

Every season there are teams that refuse to stop and ask for help... I guess they think it makes them look weak to ask for help/directions :confused:

I can only imagine the berating that really went on. I feel bad for Victoria, she seemed nice and I can sort of understand why she barely ever saw Michelle. Michelle just seems like someone you’d never want to be around. Just imagine what it would be like to date or marry her and her ego. She seemed like a terrible person, pretty sure she made an ethnic comment about Hung and Chee week 1.

Maybe some editing but I’m a little shocked they seemed to get closer during the show.

Michelle seems like that type of person. She’d rather yell at her sister for not knowing where to go than seem weak and ask for help.

That said, I can’t even imagine driving around that long and not accidentally finding it. Paris is a big city but 6.5 hours is a long time.

I agree. The blonds got lost on the way to the Chateaux, couldn't drive a stick properly, had the speed bump and still finished ahead of the other sisters.

I also enjoyed the people eating crow this week: 

James bragging about how he practiced driving a stick before the race and needing help just to get out of the parking garage. :shock:

Aparna bragging again about how smart she is and needing more than a dozen tries to finish the Art detour. :lol:

Agreed. There are some seriously arrogant folks on the show. That art detour was one of the easiest challenges ever. It would have been one thing if there were 500 paintings and 100 people but it seemed like every painting had a person so it was just pick a painting with some obvious personal details and find them. Pick a guy in a hat or lady with gray hair and you eliminated 95%, remember the outfit color and shape and your looking for 1 person. I just can’t fathom how she took so many. I think that’s the difference between book smarts/memorization and actual problem solving/analytical smarts thrown in with a way too easy panic and lose all focus.

I bet the Survivor or Big Brother recruiters will be calling Michelle.

Same here.  Had to watch on cbs.com

Mine didn't either but I realized that I never deleted the originally planned showing of the episode that was preempted by election coverage.

So next week is going to be a "megaleg" with twice the roadblocks, twice the detours, and twice the distance. According to the website, there will be two episodes as well. Since there is only one non-elimination left (and they usually have that when there are four teams) it looks like two teams will go next week. This should be good!

It would be hilarious if the blondes won this thing after three consecutive awful legs, two of which were non-elimination and one of which had a team that got ridiculously lost. 
 

They did well in Kazakhstan, though. 

I’ve come to like them a lot.  They’re always so positive, and I feel like they’ve gone through a lot in their short lives.  They’d don’t really deserve to win, but I couldn’t complain if they did.

The only team I’m rooting against at this point is the brother/sister, and it’s not like they’re bad, just boring.

Is anyone else sick and tired of the AnnoyFriends Will&James?

Man, they are irritating. :angry:

Yes. After Michelle, they are my least favorites. Just annoying with all their oh we practiced this and are experts at that talk. Brother and sister team are so boring I just don’t care one way or another. The blondes are my favorite. They keep mentioning that they left home at like 15, so good on them for being good people with what probably wasn’t a good situation growing up.

We've not seen much from the brother/sister team given that they made it to F6 and are in the alliance of 5 teams. I guess they didn't give the producers and editors much to work with.

The blondes are fun, very resilient... and lucky. But that can end in a second. I'd love it if they won though.

I think that the brother/sister are out next. They have finished 7-4-6-5-6-5-6 and are clearly at the bottom of the mine 5. But the previews highlighting the football players relationship with the others blowing up looks like classic mis-direction.

The next weakest team is Will&James. If they weren't part of the mine 5 they would be gone already. It was smart to glom onto the strong teams but that only goes so far when the numbers get small. They don't bring much to the table and have already used their U-turn. Pretty weak in the navigation department too. Can't wait to see them go.

The strongest imo is volleyball guys and why others team are helping get them to finals is poor play.  The other teams should gang up and u- turn them twice this week.

They've taken everything in stride and never seemed to get too bothered. Hard not to like them. Would be great if they win!

I agree. They seemed like the obvious top pick the first week.
