Yeah...I like them. Wanna make a bet everyone calls David and Mary "the hillbillies"? They do seem like they are trying a lot harder to prepare than everyone else. I usually like the gay couple but they just seem blah.
I liked the Indian couple and Duke and Lauren. The couple from Kentucky (ouch). They seem sweet, but damn, they really are country. I also like the brothers, Edwin and Godwin.
I'm not too fond of Peter and Sarah. Don't like how she's played the handicap card only when it suited her and she's gonna have the shock of her life if she marries Peter.

Word. He says "she's the only woman I've ever really trusted with my heart" or something. Well yes, I imagine she is. He's supportive, though, and props for that.
If I hear once that she's running the race to show that she can do everything two-footed people can do I'll start working my tv mojo for them to lose. Remember Charla? "Little people can do everything without special treatment. Hey! Where's my special treatment??" (I did like Charla, though.)
I liked the Indian couple, too. They didn't race especially well, though.
Paco Jr. and I are both of the opinion that the first elimination wasn't entirely fair. Or it didn't seem to be, anyway.
I like the hicks I think she's awesome with all the thank yous and the kindness to other teams. Is that her being dragged next week?
If that's the only eating challenge this season I'll be thrilled. I hate the volume ones. Just give me something the locals eat, in the amounts they eat, and I'm fine.
sigh...I love Race season....

I saw the first ep and i wasn't impressed with this batch of contestants..I think the could have done better..So far, i like the indian couple and the oriental bros..I can't stand the african american muslim bros...Or are they just friends can't remeber?

Well, I've developed a soft spot for the bumpkins. They may be country, but what kind people. Fun to watch. And go Lauren - it was so cool to see her complete that detour with her Dad cheering her on!

Could someone please tell me who was sent packing Sun? I had the DVR set to record and I ended up with the first 30 mins of 20/20 or Dateline and missed the last 30 mins of the race.

The father/daughter team.

Noooooooo, I like them. It was because of the chic they had helping them, wasn't it?

Can someone tell me who was eliminated last night? I set it to record and the damn football game caused me to record half of 60 mins again so I only saw the first half. Ggggggrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Oh, no one. Was a non-elimination leg. Kentucky coalmine couple came in last but the twist is that they do not need to give up their possessions. Instead they must come in 1st on the next leg or incur a 30 min penalty at the finish line. Should be next to impossible...or not.

doesn't sound like y'all will be unhappy with peter/sarah being eliminated.. or breaking up
I wanted them to win. After the 'win' brothers lost, I was hoping the Blondies would pull it off.
I can't really stand the models, just something about them is VERY shifty. Not really in their game playing so much as just, them.
I like one of the Alabama ladies, but the other is a royal bitch. She's ruined them both for me.
As for the last couple. Billy-Zane-Wannabe and his lady. I hate them and love them about 5 different times every episode. One minute he gets dangerously close to blowing a gasket, then - poof! He chills. And damn him, he's too cute when he cries over her.... I think I know why I hated him for so long.
He is me. I am him. We are we. Cut, cut! No! Don't cut!

I didn't hate the blondes as much as I thought I was going to therefore I think I ended up liking them more. I feel that I was lulled into a false sense of affection for them.
