As you may notice, I'm behind in posting about this episode. I was sreaming too - why didn't they look to make sure they had them all, especially when they were bouncing from being thrown into the cart.
As to some of the dumb mistakes, I think it was the heat that was getting to them. It makes you stupid.

The backpacks - practically all the teams had to go back to some point and retrieve them (boats because they swam) so I'm sure they just went back after they checked in at the pit stop.

Cowboys - They better start paying attention to details! Couldn't believe how many things they missed in this round. I was thankful for a non-elimination though.

Coconuts - Almost felt badly for those girls when they did check both sides and just didn't see it hiding by the wheel of their wagon. Was glad too though as it gave the cowboys a chance.

BEAUTIFUL is all I can say about that destination!

Agreed--they are being careless and it is costing them. They need to read their clues and pay attention. They're still my favorites but they are disappointing me!

I just can't get behind the father/daughter for some reason. And I don't see 1) why they didn't go back for their backpacks and 2) how they can get through the rest of the race without them.

Oh my, the "anonymous" thing just took the cake! Poor guy!!

I agree the cowboys really just need to slow down and pay attention. They have been making several mistakes lately and are lucky last night was not an elimination round!! I'm liking the detectives more and more - they seem to have really great personalities and work well together!

Fatigue always seems to rear it's ugly head at some point in every race, and I think it's here now.

As for going back for the backpacks - they likely had time to do this, as long as they had the money to hire the boat drivers to take them back and forth. If they were at a point where they needed to watch their funds, they might not be able to pay for it.

I think the teams this season are funny. I couldn't decide who had the funniest line last night. I'm still hoping the cowboys win but they better pick up their game if they want to win. Terry

What a frustrating show last night. I was screaming at the TV. I can't believe the cowboys - geesh. They need to stop and think about the game.

I'm glad it was a non-elim round and that all the teams are on next week too.
I'm very happy that the father and daughter won.

What a show last night! Teams leaving their coconuts, the father/daughter team forgetting their backpacks, the cowboys leaving their map on the boat... Everyone was messin' up! I'm just happy the cowboys get to stay another week. I had a feeling it would be a non-elimination night.

And you mean Seychelles is not pronounced "saykillies" (as I heard someone pronounce it)??? SO funny!

Well, I have to say, I really don't feel connected to any of these teams like I did in other seasons. I always had someone that I was rooting for. All I know after last night's episode is who I don't want to win. Definitely NOT the models, the brothers, the girlfriends and not even the cowboys. The detectives (don't really like them all that much either), so I guess I am stuck rooting for the father/daughter team.

I agree, I thought Phil was going to make them go back for their backpacks. But why couldn't they go back after checking in?? It looked like they were wearing different clothes while they were enjoying their 7up sponsored dinner.

I'm happy for the father/daughter team to win a leg too. Now they'd better hope one of the next legs isn't in Greenland, or Alaska!

i agree it would have taken a second to double check you had all your coconuts most of these teams are in to much of a hurry you actually save time by being more careful. I guess phill deceide as long as they had their passports if they thought they could manage without a change of clothes or personal items that was fine.

It was beautiful for sure! What was up with so many teams leaving their coconuts and the father/daughter leaving their backpacks? I know they have to be fast, but sometimes that backfires. I thought Phil would make them go back and get their backpacks before check-in.

Not just unable to pronounce Seychelles, but thinking you were in WWII when you are re-enacting WWI. And what? On your clue it clearly states you are to bring ALL your coconuts. Why didn't anyone take a quick walk around their cart to make sure all were in? I think sometimes it pays off in the end to take a few extra moments to read your clue properly. Am glad the father/daughter team won one of the legs. They seem nice.

"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," replied the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

How is it humanly possible that so few people know how to pronounce "Seychelles"?

Wow, this does sound like it will be gorgeous!! I always thought my biggest obstacle if I was ever a contestant would be any challenge related to heights but I'm not a big fan of the ocean either, especially being IN it, lol! Hope tonight's episode is fun!

I did some research on the Seychelles Island about a year ago, and remember that there are no motorized vehicles allowed. Seeing the preview with Brent and Caite driving the ox reminded me of that.

I can't wait - it'll be beautiful for sure!

I think I'll go set my VCR now - just in case something comes up and I miss part of the show.

Here's the information posted at RFF:

"TEAMS RACE TO SEYCHELLES AND GET A BREATHTAKING VIEW OF ISLAND PARADISE FROM ABOVE THE GROUND AND UNDER THE SEA, ON "THE AMAZING RACE," SUNDAY, MARCH 28 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

"Anonymous?" (Seychelles) - Teams take a stunning helicopter ride to a remote island paradise where they must race with a giant tortoise and search for a message in a bottle at the bottom of the sea, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 28 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is host."

Here's info from TV Guide:
"Here's a little bit from the March 22- April 4 double issue of TV Guide.

It's surf and turf, Amazing-style! The K-man sends his remaining globe-trotters off to an island paradise in the Indian Ocean, where their biggest problems may surface while they're underwater.

3/28 - Hope none of the teams suffers from hydrophobia, because a trip to the Seychelles will include touring the island paradise from under the sea."
