Pretty good episode this week on Amazing Race!!! Very little airline exposure just a flight from Cairo to Luxor. I didn't realize that they had two airports named "old" & "new" wow that's different. They must be close also, one team was taken to the "new" (international) instead of the "old" (domestic), within minutes they were at the other airport. They all still made their flight on the single LUXAIR charter to Luxor. Bye bye Pizza brothers, but I wanted some other teams to go before them!! Till next week! Looks like they are off into central or southern Africa.

Of course, the footage of Air Luxor consisted of a Luxair 737-500 (most people would not assume this is the airline of Luxembourg, I would guess); and when the plane landed in Luxor, it showed a Croatia Airlines A320.
I also saw that UA (looked like a 757 to me as well), and the LTU plane.
I was hoping this was the week Mirna and Smirna got out...I haven't liked them from the beginning, and their little taxi stunt was a little bizarre. THen again, once I saw the hobbling pizza brother, I could tell that it would be a miracle that they would make it out of this leg. The way he was walking just showed how much pain he was in.

I was only able to see the last half-hour of the Amazing Race tonight and all I can say is wow: After hundreds upon hundreds of hours of reality television, the moment that the cousins were eliminated was, to me, the best episode in reality-TV history. Charla's speech touched me heart.
It was so nice to see them off with a well-said, happy, remark.

Well, we've given away that Mirna and Schmirna get eliminated, but if you were planning on watching the rerun Saturday to see it all in its delicious glory...
What the #$%:& were the teams thinking planning on flying from Egypt to Kenya via Switzerland?!? That's like the team that flew from South America to South Africa (?) via New York and showed up a day later than everyone else.
Basically, M&C and the Bowling Moms tried to screw everybody over by not letting them on their Gulf Air flight--which didn't work. Their connection in the U.A.E. gets delayed, they arrive later, and they're never able to fight their way up from last place.
SO GLAD to see them go!!! Mirna is a lawyer? Who would be desperate enough to have her represent them? Although M&C were certainly good for drama ("I need a doctoro", "boat stop-ay--you go?" "I'm going to stand right here; you can do whatever the hell you want".) The show won't be the same without them.
Oh wait, Colin gets thrown in jail next week! Yes, there is justice in this world after all!! Confidential to Christie: Stand up for yourself, girlfriend! Stop taking Colin's @#&$!
Don't get me started. Man, I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!
"We hope you've enjoyed flying with us as much as we've enjoyed taking you for a ride."

Yesterday the episode was GREAT!!! Colin almost got arrested and it was tight all the way to the end!!! I think the bowling moms are next to go...But we'll see! I like Chip and Kim more & more...they are having such I good time, but Chip needs to watch the money!! (LOL) Is there really ex-Virgin 747's stored in Dubai? Also a little Kenyan Airways flight on a 737, (looked nice inside, IFE, & good looking seats). Sky diving looked scary to me but I would have loved to do the sand dune offroading 4x4 challenge!!! Can't wait for next weeks episode!!! Someone gets their hair chopped off!!!! Gotta love it!

I like how the Black fellow (forgot his name, Chip I think) was being so nice to the African people. I believe that he called a citizen "brother", but I doubt that he even knew what that meant, even if he could talk english.

AV8A - I can't count the number of times I've said "There's no way the Bowling Moms will make it." Yet they continue to make it through. I'm starting to like them more and more. Still like Chip & Kim the best though. Can't stand the Twins, Brandon & Nicole make me want to puke (if I hear "Baby" in that little whining voice again I'm going to go postal...) and I think Colin escaped from a psych ward somewhere. My bet for the next elimination are the Twins, although I'd LOVE to see Colin go just to watch him enter an uncontrollable rage and end up ripping Phil Keoghan's trachea out . Now THAT would generate ratings

That is so true!!! "God" that is just what I think to...they make me wanna puke!!! Colin I liked in the beginning but now your seeing the "devil" inside him, he is strange, rude and arrogant! I want to like the "twins" but they just seem a little (sorry to say SLOW). My vote to win is now Chip & Kim...they both are having a good time, playing the game well (except money), and are kind and respectful to the people in the countries they are guests in!!! They deserve it.
