I was really worried that the doctors were gone, which shows how the smartest are not necessarily the best players. And--a bad cab can cost you the game!

I was trying to figure out how the others all missed that decoder wall and the first team found it so easily. The rate they were all NOT reading their clues (think the wheelbarrow thing) I wonder if there was a word in the decoder clue they missed. Laughed when they were drawing circles around the children though.

I loved that it all got mixed up and some from beneath came in sooner this time

The doc's sure had bad taxi drivers the whole time so was glad they didn't get eliminated but they need to step up their sleuth work as that trail couldn't have been that difficult to find.

The father/son that did not get eliminated...glad the dad finished. Great lesson for his son. Hopefully they can make up time even with the extra activity they will have to complete.

Tattoo couple... I too was glad to see that he really does care about her. He was definitely not a nice guy until her asthma. I love that they know they are "not smart" and tease each other easily about it.

I still don't really have one team I'm rooting for though...such an even field!

I missed Episode 3 because my dumb TV didn't record it for some reason! Thank God I have you girls here to fill me in - sounds like I missed a pretty good episode! I'm glad it was a non-elimination night - I hope the father/son team stay a while.

Yes, I was also yelling at the TV about how many of them missed the "decoding" wall.
A couple of them turned around to talk to their partners and were looking right at it!!!!
I didn't know that 98 degrees - it looked hotter than that. Probably the humidity made it feel much warmer........

So glad this was a non-elimination round. Nice to see how things just turn around in the AR show. Teams that are on the bottom can come in first or second in the next show. Keeps things interesting. Home Shopping team didn't get much air time. I am sure that when they do, the blonde will prove to be very grating.
kept yelling at the TV "Turn around, turn around!!" Amazing how all those teams missed the big clue on the side of the building.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," replied the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

I have to agree with you! I was surprised that Dad had such a health problem. They mentioned several times in the episode that it was 98, which is not something that they always do. It certainly helped understand a lot about how challenging the day was.

Tattoo guy was so awful and then, boom, great with her. It was nice to see him have a good moment since he has been the one villain so far this season.

The glee boys just don't do it for me.

And how odd was it that they were the only ones who could find the code banner--on the side of the building???

This is the first time I've found myself cheering this season, but when Phil said it was a non-elimination round, I jumped up, clapped, whooped--I was ecstatic. Kevin and his dad really touched my heart. I loved that Dad didn't give up, though that heat really took a toll on him; but I especially loved how tender and concerned and considerate Kevin was of his dad, constantly reassuring him that it wasn't his fault. Kevin made it abundantly clear that his relationship with his dad was worth far more than $1,000,000...unlike some other teams we've watched in seasons past (or even THIS season!).

I was so over Nick, yellingn at Vicky and acting like a spoiled brat--until she had her asthma attack, and poof! just like that his frustration and anger were totally gone, and all he cared about was her. I liked that. He halfway redeemed himself to me.

I, too, found myself cheering for the Glee Clubbers. So glad they came in first.

After last week's posts I made a point of watching the Home Shopping Network duo, and I must say, I don't find the blonde to be annoying at all. What's wrong with her voice?

Just watched the show - it was good but frustrating. I don't know how I would have handled working in that heat............I enjoyed watching the school children.
It is a very different life than we have here in the states.

I must say, I'm not quite as embarrassed by/for the Glee guys this week. I was more embarrassed for almost everyone else in that detour...............

We really haven't had any teams that cause chaos and conflict for the "fun" of it all. I'm still enjoying it though!
