These guys seem like potential jerks, like Eric and what's his face in season 9. Maybe Joey will be like the guy in the Planet Fitness commercial who says "I like to pick things up and put them back down."

Eh, these two don't interest me that much. I can see them easily making it far, but I hope that they don't. Maybe they'll go out in the beginning. Unless they bring the comedy, then I wouldn't be sad at their departure.

Ugh. Instant hate for these two. A couple of gym rats, by the looks of them (one goes 3 times a day, apparently). Anyone who is asked to describe themselves in three words and chooses "sexy" as one of those words already has a mark against them in my book. And, also, "nightclub promoter." Right up there with "event hostess."

Wow, they're really pushing the "Jersey Shore" angle with these guys. They might be funny, but I think they're more likely to be annoying and really full of themselves. Thankfully, I don't think they'll do very well.

More lazy casting. I can just hear the casting room discussion: "Hey, there's that Jersey Shore show that's popular. Let's see if we can find some wannabes!" Blech.

No dice - Joey is Snooki's real-life personal trainer.

Lucked out. Tremendously. For not knowing how to drive stick and for the epic fail of tying empanadas alone, they should've been booted. They should be thanking their lucky stars Misa & Maiya were completely brainless in looking for the Pit Stop.

I feel so sorry for Phil having to always say "Fitness" after Joey's name. Hopefully they will be eliminated soon.

Just from seeing the intro video on the CBS site, I was & still am hoping for early elimination for them. (And for the Big Brothers)

No, you guys are not the "comeback kids." You got helped yet again by someone else being bad at a task. And help from another team, to boot.

Still hoping they're an early boot, by some miracle.

There must be something wrong with me because I actually find Joey Fitness a little charming. Where did my taste go?

I refuse to call any human being "Joey Fitness" and I've lost some respect for the show for treating itself like Jersey Shore in doing so. Not that I had much respect LEFT after they cast Big Brother Rachel.

I don't know that I would call him charming, but he is a cutie. They both seem like nice enough guys, if not particularly bright. I actually prefer them to the twins and the Border Patrol teams. I don't think they have a chance in hell of F3, let alone winning, but stranger things have happened on this show (hello, Dandrew).

Phil calling him Joey Fitness never fails to make me laugh. It's so absurd - maybe if there was another Joey on this season, it wouldn't be so laughable. I can only imagine what goes through Phil's mind when saying his name.

I don't mind them, don't mind that they get "helped" by someone else doing poorly in a challenge because alot of times that's the way the race is run. I think they're all praying for a team to do worse than them.

I don't really find Joey Fitness any more obnoxious as a nickname than Big Easy or Vyxsin, but I wish they'd knock it off with the " " around it in their captioning. I think we all realise it's not his real name. It's also a little bit of flavour to their character, which they've otherwise not demonstrated too much of, except that that they kind of suck at racing, in a low-key sort of way.

Damn it all, I like these guys and glad they placed nicely this leg. Nevertheless, the visibly weaker teams are dropping like flies, so I don't know how much longer they will last.

I imagine they're not gonna last much longer. They really only did well on this leg because it was mainly physical. One more mental leg could do them in quickly.

I see nothing really likable about them, ribboninthesky1.

I think Phil sold his soul to the devil and has to say "Fitness". Otherwise, he would refuse to do it.

I don't hate these two and I fully expected to not one them on my tv. I'm not on any kind of love train, but they are mildly entertaining and they did rock the watermelons.

They just sort of got it done this episode.

I don't think either challenge was "mainly physical". You certainly had to have some precision to get the watermelons in their formation without crashing (more people gave it up than stuck it out) and the bottle dance certainly took some finesse.

Maybe these two are hitting their stride? Danny's not as funny as he thinks he is, for that part, neither is Joey. That aside, they are among the teams I like, and I'm beginning to wonder if I underestimated them. We'll see.

I laughed in the extra footage when Danny said if they ever come in first place, he will shave his head right there on the mat. Phil made him promise.

They seem to have a bit more going for them now that they less stressed and more comfortable with the race.

Doing better than I expected them, too. But I'm still remembering they only survived leg one because Misa & Maiya totally missed a simple Pit Stop, so I'd still rather they not be here.

I've liked them since the beginning of the season, and I still like them. They get along well, don't camera mug, and seem to enjoy themselves. Given that the couples may possibly implode on themselves, I'm beginning to believe these two may have a legitimate shot at F3.

ETA:
I feel so bad for these two - I was rooting for something to happen to keep them in (certainly over Vanessa and Ralph). Aw well - them's the breaks.

Not upset to lose them at all. While they weren't as annoying as they were in the first two episodes, when it comes right down to it, they really shouldn't have survived that first leg and really only did through the dumbest circumstances possible. Also, they chased a Fast Forward they knew another team was going for and lost out on it despite doing a task that was practically tailor-made for them.

And then came the "beat by a girl" comment, and I was beyond ready for them to go. Bye-bye.

I didn't think I'd like this team, but they became one of the only teams I actually liked (the other being the mostly mute agents). Sorry to see them go while Bopper, Dave, Rachel/Brendon, Vanessa/Ralph, etc. are still around.

Yup. They can fuck right off with that sexist bullshit. And if we're going to get technical, they got beat by FIVE girls: Both Rachels, Nary, Jamie, and Vanessa are still in the race, you tools, and you're not.
