    S31.E09: Let's Split!

    I feel the same way. If ever he was going to blow, that would have been it. I'm for them to go all the way!

    S31.E08: You're The Apple In My Eye

    and yet despite being u-turned they nearly beat the Afganimals....who they seemed to indicate were a stronger team. agree with everyone, Rachel can dish it out but becomes a whiny little vindictive baby when she has to take it from others.
  3. totally agree. and did you notice that at the top of the step counting challenge, Christie took the time to enjoy the view? They really seem to be enjoying the entire experience this time. I hope they win. Also, I like how Britney put things in perspective when she said losing a race is not the worst day of her life--being told your child has cancer was. having seen in my own family what that involves, she gets my admiration.

    S31.E04: I Took Out a Polar Bear

    that says it all. she's nice to those she feels are worth it, to others not so much. I have even less respect for her (if possible).

    S31.E04: I Took Out a Polar Bear

    I don't believe I specified they thought they were superior on this particular episode, but they have said more than once that anyone on Survivor endured more and should be able to handle the race. I think a lot of us felt she was a bitch when she talked about "dumb cab" drivers in front of their cab driver, said Eliza didn't grow up in a trailer park riding mopeds, and disparaged another cab driver for asking directions of an elderly man. Plus she tried to steal their cab and then got mad because they objected and couldn't see their point of view--just their own--absolutely no insight. you're right, perhaps in this episode they didn't express there belief in their innate superior skills but they did at the start and this was just another stinging rebuke of that. btw, here's a quote from an exit interview from Corrine (it's not just us calling her a bitch): " I also think there’s a villain and there’s a bitch. Eliza is actually much more of a villain. She’s the one that comes up with yelling loudly during karaoke to mess Victor [Arroyo] up. She’s the one that wanted to stay in front of the tuk tuk. I’m more of a bitch. I’m the one that you see in a lot of the deleted scenes calling the Afghanimals unattractive. I go through life and I don’t have a filter. To me, the two of us combined with those aspects makes for very interesting TV. I can’t speak for the viewers — and the “Amazing Race” fans are kind of weird "

    S31.E04: I Took Out a Polar Bear

    the bottom line is that Corinne and Eliza expected to do really well on the Amazing Race. They felt superior to the other teams. When they didn't perform as well as others, they still found ways to blame everything and everyone but themselves. They refused to believe that people they deemed "lesser" than they, were doing much better. there's no shame in failing at the Amazing Race. I couldn't do it--the sleep deprivation, culture shocks, etc., which is why I'm also in awe of those who are able to do it in a respectful, grateful way.

    I don't know. I think we would have seen at least a little snark by now by Colin. there's nothing--he's just staying mellow and seems to be enjoying himself.

    S31.E04: I Took Out a Polar Bear

    I thought I was at the end of my rope with Rachel's whining and really wanted them out.....then Corinne made the trailer park comment and that was that. I'm so sick of people who disparage others--be they people who live in trailer parks, or cab drivers, or old people. They seemed to think because they had some edge because Survivor is a physically and emotionally draining game but the reality is that they sit around a lot with plenty of time to think. The Amazing Race combines the exhaustion and physicality of Survivor and adds the element of thinking and making decisions on the spot all in foreign cultures. I just never understood their air of superiority about being on Survivor. I still hate Rachel's cringe worthy voice--but she never gives up. Also, I think she is sincere when she praised the other. She became good friends with Ragan Fox who was her nemesis on Big Brother. I think she's able to recognize it's a game. I hope Colin and Christie win--if for no other reason than proving that someone can change. I can not believe it's the same person. loved how he interacted with the child at the end.

    S31.E03: Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy

    not only that but I think I heard her say something about having a "dumb cab driver" those drivers probably know more English than they let on. I just hate traveling Americans like them.

    S31.E01: You're In Our Race Now

    I, too, liked Rupert the first time he played on Survivor. then each time he came back his was more arrogant. tonight, he dismissed his wife when she pointed out the place with lights on then proceeded to wander around for hours. he's a know-it-all who is clueless.

    S17.E04: Survive in Style

    put me in the "expected Renee to be in the bottom" club. to me she took a tarp and cut up a back pack so she could hang stuff off the tarp. if you were really in survival---you'd probably keep the backpack as in and put the stuff in it...so you could walk without stuff getting in the way. why was Tessa's look ok but Afa's not, or garo's or all the other ones that were just bungee cords? he used more unconventional materials than most. and they gushed over the one where the sleeping bag was cut and used as a cape and a skirt with some bandages...my personal favorite was Venny's.

    S7.E13 All the World's a Runway

    The only look that was breathtaking to me was Biddell's last dress.....that was fabulous. the rest, sadly, was not so good. like everyone else, loved Dimiti's jacket and pants. other than those, nothing else really knocked me out. didn't like Michelle's at all. and I don't get the response she gave about her model having a see thru outfit...that it didn't bother her because it's not how it will be worn. well, why not show it how it will be worn???

    S38.E07: There’s Always a Twist

    This was my thought as well. If he had remained, he'd have to win individual immunity every time to guarantee his safety. If he comes back later in the game, there will be less challenges he'll have to do that. his biggest competition on EOE is Chris but Joe has experience on his side. I know Reem isn't likable, but I have to give her credit for choosing to stay in the game. She has to know her chances of winning a spot back are limited, yet she still wants to compete.

    S09.E15: The Calm Before

    Xfininity DVR did not pick up ending. have on demand option but it won't even let me fast forward thru the show part....so I'm forced to let it run out until I get to where I want to watch. have it on mute right now. I thought Tara's acting had improved a lot recently and I didn't mind her so much so am sorry to hear she's on the stakes. Same with Enid, a once annoying character who has grown on me. In all fairness to Lydia, she did tell Henry that her mother would seek vengeance. Alpha out foxed them. I, too, hope to see old Carol come back. and ditch the hair. So you cut it so your abusive husband couldn't grab it. So the walkers can't????
  15. I seemed to hear in Julie's voice that she is tiring of the gratuitous compliments. I thought Joey's take on LoLo was spot on and hilarious. She's a piece of work...a Christian who flips the bird and blows her top at everything?
