The whole Rob getting injured was a bit over the top. He didn't fall all dramatically like they made it look. He was laying there with a tshirt or something under his head. But the guy was in BAD shape! All his weird mutterings...him and Jeff being all palsies. I didn't care for it, but Rob redeemed himself when he said that he had a case of cry-baby-itis! I've never liked Rob...hated him the first 2 go rounds...hated him on Amazing Race, but there is something about this season that I am enjoying. Jeff's review of the cast that I linked before it started said that Rob had a chance to win...and I believe it. He's an animal because after his little visit with medical, he came back and rocked the challenge. He was hoisting that cube up by himself and I thought he was going to collapse and get squished. He helped lead the villians to victory...again.
Check out this very good & funny recap/review of the episode: Entertainment Weekly
Amazing Race~ This editing on this 2nd episode was SOOO much better. It was easier to follow along. I have to take back my thoughts and comments on the cowboys. They are much smarter than I thought. The only thing I negative I have to say about them is what is up with the plastic covers for the cowboy hats? Seriously? I know that team tri-granny was on the last bus, but they were just slow. If they somehow had passed up the (lame) detectives...they would continue to be bottom feeders and be out...so it's good it just happened now. I think that the detectives will continue to scrounge for shellfish and be out SOON! The decision that Carol/Brandy made to align with Joe/Heidi was a good one and both teams finished high. Next week's previews look like Carol & Brandy have a HUGE DIVA lovers spat, which might be the beginning of their demise. I think that Joe/Heidi will do good in the long run.
OK...so you are huge fan of Amazing Race and you decide to apply to be on the show. Don't you think you'd lean from other's mistakes? NO! It amazes me that teams know they are going to have to drive themselves and they can't drive a standard transmission. Really? Not only that...they got lost. Come on Dan & Jordan. I thought you were so funny in episode one. You won't be around much longer if you can't find drive your way out of a paper bag!
