Started today. Teams look okay, and for once it's not just eye candy for the guys, there's a team of Chippendales! Hawt!

Anybody else watching?

Me, I always need a few episodes though to get a feel for the teams.

Possible spoiler below






I did not like though, how that one team told the others where the clue was and then they overtook them to win the leg. I think the first team were a bit silly to tell them in the first place but they were doing so well until then I felt sad for them.

Also, what do you think of the $2 million twist?

I think the 2 million twist is there to make one team a bigger target. And yeah, given what was at stake for winning the leg, I couldn't believe that couple told the others where the clue was. I didn't mind the lumberjack and his wife, sad to see them go, would have preferred the Sri Lankan girls to go, they annoyed the crap out of me.

And how was that guy having to do the Roadblock again? Yuck! The preview for the season showed some interesting locations. Russia was one I think, they haven't been there in awhile.

Agree PP, the twins are SO annoying AND loud. Yergh.

ETA: possibly spoiler here: I love the Shanghai's table tennis challenge, esp when the little guy used the frying pan and still able to do it fantastically laughing2.gif

Can't believe the twins won the express pass! And was not happy with the couple eliminated. Not fair  sad.gif

Hi Ladies

Anyone know where I can find episode 2?  I usually use eztv.it but it isn't on there yet sad.gif

Thanks!

BUMP

Anyone else having issues finding the episodes?  I can only find ones that are really really big.

I've just been watching them on the Catch up 7 site. I know it's not US paced, but at least it's not the stupid late night slot they have on TV.  All my usual you tube suppliers have been shut down by CBS :-(

I didn't even realise it had started here on free to air, must be on really late.  Thanks heaps PhMcRingring, off to check it out now.

Episodes 2&3 are on eztv today - just really slow to download.....

It is on Mondays at 10pm. sad.gif

I am watching at Aussie pace - last night was episode two.

OMG those Sri Lankan twins are doing my head in. Their constant yelling and carrying on is making me stabby.

I was disappointed the girl with the prostetic (?) legs got sent home. Goes to show it is just pure bad luck at the hand of taxi drivers.

I saw them on EZTV but the files are enormous, considering how large a tv show normally is.

Wah!  cry1.gif cry1.gif  

It's terrible. That was my nightly 'TV' time ... I can understand taking down the seasons that they don't sell on iTunes (they sell Season 14-20 on the US version) but to take down ones they don't even sell.. Just mean spirited... cry1.gif cry1.gif  

On a happier note, worked my way backwards from Season 20 to about Season Nine however. blush.gif

I am watching on Ch 7. I still want to slap the twins. They are sooo annoying. And going by this weeks episode with the bus task the other teams feel the same! lol

I know "c'mon twwiiiinnnnyyyy, ttwwwiiinnnssssyyyyssssss'  I am hoping they go really really soon.  Usually it is fun to see twins on the show, not this time  nno2.gif

Anyone still watching?

I cannot believe the 'twinnys' and that other pair basically stole the long haired guys money. That is really low. I bet they were wondering how on earth they managed to stay in the pack with them. original.gif



#19 AstralMoon

Posted 16 November 2012 - 07:39 PM

I too can't believe the producers stood by and let them steal, let alone from another team!! That there wasn't a consequence...I couldn't believe it!!!

And weren't they also breaking the country's laws that they were in, I mean, stealing is never right now is it?!

Geez.

#20 SNT349

Posted 16 November 2012 - 09:49 PM

I didn't like that either.  Thought it was very poor form.  I kept waiting for karma to come bite them.  So glad the rockers weren't eliminated.

No if only the next episode was online......

An American friend just announced the winners on facebook. *doh*

#22 SNT349

Posted 11 December 2012 - 03:00 PM

Yay!  So glad they won

#23 Chocolate Addict

Posted 11 December 2012 - 05:40 PM

I was totally shocked by the winners actually! lol Once I got over the crankyness that it was spoiled.

I don't mind a spoiler and don't mind hearing a winner when it is top 2 or 3 but not when it is still 4/5 teams (Aussie pace, obviously). I was more cranky with how she did it.

It was like "#spoiler alert - congrats to XXX and YYY for winning amazing race" so no chance of missing the spoiler. sad.gif



#24 Jen1

Posted 12 December 2012 - 10:35 PM

I was so glad of the winners. biggrin.gif Well done to them and well done on losing all the other people that wanted them gone!! Excellent!! Fantastic effort!!


#25 anotherlogin

Posted 14 December 2012 - 10:25 AM

I was happy they won, I like the fact they thought logically in the last challenge.  It looked like the flags "buzzed" when you got it correct.  So if you knew even 3 of the hello's/goodbyes it really helped.  Then it wasn't "gussing, but logically putting each one 1st/2nd etc.
