Cyclone, you want the AZ guys to win? I really don't care much for them. But then again, none of the remaining teams have much "loveability" about them. I just think the AZ guys are so tight up, and I get annoyed by their comments left and right. The Army husband and wife team are clearly the best team in the race, but I despise the way the guy treats his wife.

Yeah, I didn't like them at first, but they won me over when they offered to give half of their first place prize money to Mark's daughter.  Plus I like that they're realistic, non-gimmicky reality show contestants ... i.e. not an eye candy attractive couple.  And they don't actually annoy me at all, meanwhile the Big Brother team is perhaps the most annoying team I've ever seen, and Ralph and Vanessa stoop to their level quite a bit.  You're right that the army couple is the best team ... they're just too boring for me to root for.

Well, I think the best team won this time around. Uh, the husband though is SO annoying. He cared more about be the most "winningiest" team in the history of the show over a million dollars. Which is whatever. I nearly had a heart attack and had a major WTF moment when they got to the end BEFORE the road block challenge. I was definitely rooting for them to win after that because they accidentally skipped ahead. Art & JJ were okay most of the race but after the whole "Major Dave" incident, they became as intolerable as the whole BB and Vanessa drama. I would have been okay with them winning it over BB though. BB guy is way too nice for big baby and really not sure why he puts up with her. I still think Rachel needs to take her half a mill and dump Maj Dave and find someone who respects her. He needs a serious attitude adjustment.

Another ugh.

I wanted Vanessa's mouth to win and everyone else to lose... especially her fake eyelashes.

Just saw that the new season is starting Sept. 30, with a $2 mill. pay-out. Looking forward to it!

So the fall season is underway. So far no teams I strongly dislike.

I felt so bad for the last team tonight. I hate when elimination is due to a bad taxi driver. :(

I can see myself disliking strongly the monster truck driver (mohawk guy) and the blond James of the Chippendales. Otherwise, agreed.

I felt sorry for the team who came in second. That'll learn 'em for being nice! Which reminds me, that the guy on the team that came in first seems like he *could* be a first rate jerk but time will tell.

Yeah, the only team I really dislike are the monster truckers.  Listening to the mohawk guy's unwarranted cocky confessionals so far has been pretty brutal.

I was also rooting for the team that was eliminated last night.  Also really like James & Abba, the heavy metal guys.

Found the end of the latest ep very frustrating. Sucks to lose because of circumstances out of your control. The team who lost was my #1...I think I'll cheer for the twins now because while they could have the potential to be annoying, overall I think they are funny. Oh, and the substitute teachers are all right as well.

Haven't posted before but I'm watching! Love this show. The only show (besides the Bengals) that I can convince my 25 yr old son to come over and watch with me  :)

I have taken to following Mrs. Poncho around the house and randomly yelling encouragement at her for mundane tasks.

"COME ON TWINNIE!  YOU CAN DO IT, TWINNIE!  UNLOAD THE DISHWASHER FAST, FAST!"

She doesn't seem nearly as amused by this as I am.
