T minus 5 days until episode 7 due to an off-week!
Great episode. "She said such hurtful things and I've never said a mean word about her!" Liar!
"Those two don't deserve to be here." Took the words right out of everyone's mouth!
That was a pretty tight segment. Once we got to the final tent challenge, my wife said,"I'll bet it's a non-elimination leg!" and she was right. The "undercover" FBI agents-turned-kindergarten-teachers were my pick from the beginning but they really haven't impressed me too much yet, especially when it comes to hitting targets or assembling things.
The border patrol guys are definitely making this race interesting. I wonder who they were yelling about in next week's preview regarding "never talking to them again." My wife thinks maybe Mark & Bopper had U-turned them but I said no way! Not Mark & Bopper! I figured it was probably directed towards Team Big Brother.
I have to agree that we haven't seen this much interpersonal drama between the teams on TAR in I don't know how many seasons. At first, I thought it was silly but then I quickly realized that without it, it'd be pretty drab. Although I don't like the "green team" aka Team Big Brother, imagine how different this season would be if they weren't in the race. I mean, first you have Big Brother Brendon & Rachel butting heads with Ralph & Vanessa. Then you have Art & JJ cutting off Dave & Rachel, meanwhile both Dave & Rachel and Brendon & Rachel are each bickering amongst each other throughout the entire race. Throw in Art & JJ complaining about Brendon & Rachel following them all the time. I think right now, all we have is Mark & Bopper who are the 'underdogs' who actually don't have any beef with any other team and is probably the team that most people are rooting for at this point. Now that's drama!

TAR is getting a tad predictable... I just knew the last leg would be a non-elimination!
As much as I dislike Team Big Baby, I had to laugh when they left the cricket field before Team Border Patrol. JJ: "Art, Rachel will be here all night. C'mon, dude, get it done!" Rachel: Swing and a hit! Art & JJ:
I can understand not wanting to shave your head, but:
"I've spent the past three years getting my hair to look good."
"I just got $500 hair extensions".
Meanwhile, the average annual per capita income in India is around $1000, if that much.
It would be ever such sweet justice if Team Big Baby is the one who hits the million-dollar mat first, but has to go back and finish the Road Block and subsequently loses the Race. Please, oh, please, let it be them!
So close to $1M, but $500 in hair extensions?
I would have given Rachel mad props if she shaved her head. Mad props. But no.
I was proud of Kentucky. They never gave up.
I expect to see them in the next "All-Stars" version.

Salt Lake City was not discovered by Dracula and the shark people.
Let's Go Jets/Mets/Nets
I'd find it hard to believe if Rachel and Vanessa went on for 40 minutes. For one, you could tell both the guys, Dave and Ralph, wanted to take the high road and just let it go. Also, if it were 40 minutes long, wouldn't Art & J.J. have arrived by then?
I'm not certain but I seem to think Mark & Bopper were about 5 hours behind in this leg so even with the fast forward, they were quite some ways behind Art & J.J. even though editing made it appear that they still stood a chance.
Since I have no DVR , I had to flip back and forth between TAR and Sherlock, so I missed some of the last hour of TAR. Given what the last challenge was, I'm glad I did... another lackluster finish, but at least a deserving team won.
