The Amazing Race – Not Like Us

Do Jennifer and Caroline use the term “not like us” so much that they have an acronym – NLU – for it? That’s what I was wondering at the beginning of this episode, as everyone ganged up on Brenchel for using the U-Turn on David and Connor. Honestly, grow up people! It’s part of the game. What a bunch of whiners.

Later, David and Connor just gave the “tunnel drill” answer to the Afghanimals and to the blonds. I can’t stand that! I don’t want to root for any of these fools who constantly help one another out. But I’ve never been a big cowboys fan, and I hate Brenchel. So… (By the way, I would have answered that the piece of equipment was a futuristic rock-climbing wall because I’m a genius.)

I wish The Amazing Race would make it harder to share information somehow. It bothers me so much. Sure, helping a weak team get to the end will make it easier for you to win. But it kind of spoils the show for fans, and it would really suck if somehow Jen and Caroline ended up winning.

This tweet pretty much sums it up.

 

That’s enough whining for now because PUPPIES! Cute lil (OK, giant) doggies! The Roadblock required a lot of physical strength, so Caroline and Jennifer were basically left in the dust.

David and Connor came in first, followed immediately by the cowboys and the Afghanimals. Then Brenchel came in, and finally Caroline and Jen… and it was a freaking non-elimination leg! Those girls are the luckiest humans on Earth. No one is like them.

    To be honest, I’m getting kind of sick of all the U-Turn bashing. -_- People are allowed to react to things, and if U-Turning someone is just “part of the game”, then their and everyone else’s reaction to the U-Turn is also part of the game and should be something a team factors in before deciding to use this tool, rather than a reason to bash the teams.

    Dave and Connor are whining– no ifs ands or buts about it. They are overreacting because they were u turned by a team that they don’t like and they need to get over it. If it’s going to take 3 teams ganging up and sharing info in order to beat team Brenchel then who’s the better team here? I don’t particularly like Brendan and Rachel but you have to feel that any team that gets ganged up on and still perseveres is somehow deserving of a win- like them or not.
