I said it last year, I'll say it now: Head to head is the dumbest addition to TAR. It basically makes everything up to that moment null and void. I stand by this . . . but we did lose a Big Brother team. And HtH wasn't as bad as the clusterfuck that was the Survivor finale. BTW, I don't think CBS promoted TAR once last week, which shows where the series ranks with the fickle network.
I liked Victor's moment of clarity: "'Rolex' = 'Roll Eggs'!" Otherwise, you'd just be wandering through the market looking for designer watches. Janelle fucks that up. Can't say I'm too sad. Of course, the Reilly Sisters can go at any time now. Rachel getting a third shot irritates me . . .but not as much as the time she and Brendon were on Fear Factor, and she beamed that they were "Reality TV Royalty." That actually happened.
Dubai leg was fun. On Facebook, there were a few gripes about the skydiving task being in VR, but I'm guessing TAR could only be insured for the zipline at the end. Sad to see the Afghanimals hung up over that, especially after they celebrated getting so close to their homeland. Thinking about it, I'm just rooting against the Reillys at this point. TAR teams are fun, Nicole & Victor and "Bromance" (is that an official nickname?) aren't objectionable. And I'm pleased that TAR teams have won all six legs so far.
God help us all, Phil is now a member of Team Fun. He gets the button, and I'm thinking the t-shirt and decoder ring are in the mail. And he did some freestyle rap. Just when you think you know a guy after almost two decades.
