Uchenna and Joyce deserve that elimination and a pity clue in my mind, not because they got screwed by their flight, but because they used the phrase “it’s a matter of life and death”.
Absolutely. That's the crappiest thing in the entire race, in my opinion. It's a GAME, not life and death. I knew the second they decided to take the risk that it was the last we'd see of them until they checked in hours after everyone. And it looks like they were at least 12 hours behind. Which has happened a lot this season.
I thought Eric's comments when they got Yielded were a pretty good insight into his psyche, and supports my theory that his an asshole, not a homophobe. When he's mad at someone he calls them whatever he thinks they would find offensive. Which isn't exactly something to be proud of or anything, but it further explains him referring to the Guido's as queens. Though "Dirty pirate hookers" was admittedly at least funny. Mainly because I'm trying to figure out how a pirate hooker would dress/talk. I think Danielle definitely showed more spine and more drive this leg, stepping up on the newspaper task and generally speaking her mind a bit more.
I also liked how Team Psycho turned a 3 hour lead coming out of the airport into 2nd place. They are geniuses at working airports/airlines. But they suck at the tasks.
Didn't the cookie vs. batik clue specifically say to get there "on foot?" I'm wondering why Charla and Mirna weren't given a penalty for cabbing it to both spots.
I wondered the same thing, and at least one other team took a cab (I think Eric and Danielle, though I don't recall). Maybe there was enough distance between the checkins that they were assessed penalties but they didn't affect placement so weren't shown.
Every Yield I remember seeing has ended with the Yielded team recovering quickly.
Danielle and her partner (Danni?) were eliminated in their season as the result of a Yield. I think it was the first time it resulted in an elimination.
