Another fun leg, except for the ending. We finally have a feud for the Fast Forward, and the losers that wind up getting eliminated are nicer than the winners. Really, who would've guessed that Guidos would be nice guys? They're nowhere near as disgusting as their counterparts at the Jersey Shore . . . and I'm thinking this might be the last we see of them. Meanwhile, "Pauly D" is getting a spinoff. Life doesn't seem fair, y'know?
Seriously, given how stupid and quarrelsome Vanessa & Ralph are, couldn't Phil have eliminated them instead? For pity's sake, they couldn't find the clue to the Detour! And they weren't supposed to search for it! The snickering of the cameramen should have tipped them off. And it looks like we'll have more sniping between Vanessa and Rachel in two weeks. Oh, joy.
On the bright side: guys bathing in oil, Racers getting to scrape it off. Not that I hated the locals, but I kept imagining Shane Powers from Survivor: Exile Island competing, pulling out a smoke and lighting up for a much-needed fix. Is that wrong of me? Should I just stick to the humor of straight dudes bathing other dudes?
The apple Detour was cool, mostly for the locals. Needle-searching in haystacks do get annoying. Speaking of which . . . does anybody else think Lena got a nasty facial tic seeing all of that hay?
At least Bopper & Mark are still in it, and still funny (and non-forced) as all out. Sadly, I think we'll be stuck with at least one couple in the final leg, and that's gonna suck eggs.
ETA for any mods reading: I goofed up the quotation marks with the title. Could that be corrected?
