The Amazing Race 7 - The Emmy winning Season 7 of the Amazing Race on DVD - complete with episode commentary and other extras.
PandaCam Addict - Okay, admit it - you spend far too much time watching baby pandas via assorted internet pandacams. It's okay. We feel your pain; we share your obsession.
Yippeeeee . . . Yahoooo . . . and . . . Yields Away Ė Episode 11
who is going to add his two cents. He's an enormous Race fan from none other than Australia!!! He's been in touch with me throughout the year and asked about adding a couple comments about how they feel down under about last weekís episode. Everyone, meet Louis (his comments are in italics).
Chip & Kim: Way to go!!!!!!!!!! I am very, very happy for ya. Don't worry, when all is said and done the dust will settle . . . . But man oh man, you better be watching out next week . . . LOL, LOL! Just be ahead of Colin and Christie, cause you know they are gonna Yield you. I am so glad Chip finally realizes itís a race for a MILLION dinars . . . oops I mean dollars. When he said no more being diplomatic, itís nothing personal, well, I hope he runs the rest of the race with that attitude. I know it's difficult, but ya gotta do it because you have to believe the other teams are thinking the same.
Linda & Karen: You guys did an amazing, amazing job AGAIN!!! I was really worried about Linda climbing that ladder and walking the beam . . . she was awesome!! You have to be sooo psyched after doing that. It was great, I was cheering all the way for ya. Hmmmm, you two are hot and every time you are down or in last place you never ever give up!!! WAIT Ė stop one minute! Heeheehee, ladies . . . WOW, were you guys pissed or what at the beginning, getting snappy with each other and all??? What was that all about?? Heeheehee! Sheeesh, I have to admit it made me crack up and laugh . . . I think everyoneís tired and just wants the damn race over by now, HUH??? I can feel your pain. I am glad you got it out in the beginning . . . I was cracking up, I tell ya.
They know they are in this race and they are in it to win by their attitudes!!! It was funny to see them wheeling their backpacks on a luggage cart into the airport, though. What was that? You had time to grab a cart and wheel it?? Hmm, I guess there was plenty of time.
Colin & Christie: Okay, they have been kicking ass all through the race, winning trips left, right, and center. Ya gotta figure the other teams definitely want to give them a little slow down. C'mon, itís freakiní common sense. If nobody Yielded them, it would have been ridiculous. They should be thrilled that it was a non-elimination round. If looks could kill, Chip would've been 10 feet under . . . man, that Colin is a piece of work!!
Okay, he breezed through the ladder, got an early flight, but the big airport delay is what killed them. It can happen to anyone, but I can't help to think they jinxed themselves with all the mouthing off about the other teams and their "STUPID MISTAKES" or how about when Christie remarked that "EVERYONE ELSE SUCKS!!!!" Huh?? Come on, a little graciousness goes a long way!! Well, I guess a little Mr. & Mrs. you-know-who needed a little notch in their belt released!!! All I can say is it is about time. They were on fire they were hot and nobody was going to catch up to them. Can you say ďself-destructĒ? Colin in that field with the ox screaming at Christie, screaming at the ox . . . LOL. What the heck is that all about? Is the screaming going to help?? Then Christie walks in and finds the clue, just like that.
Episode 11: Yippeeeee . . . Yahoooo . . . and . . . Yields away!!!
Wow!!! I really liked watching this episode, it was just a blast and the Road Block to me was terrifying, Jon would have definitely been doing that one!!! It reminded me of the bat cave climb on ours and of course the ox plow reminded me of one of my favorites, "the bull pull!!!!" Hehehehehehehehe . . . off we go!
Okay, Louis my matey down under, take it away . . . .
Okay! OMG, Christie, Christie, Christie!!! What are we gonna do about her? Letís talk about Colin's "broken ox" later, LOL. But now . . . oh man, I canít believe I felt sorry for her having to put up with Colin in the earlier episodes. I was wrong (well, who wasn't?). In this episode, Christie showed she was just as obnoxious and bigheaded as her "ugly American" boyfriend!! (Ya see, foreigners see all that as Ugly Americanism!! Ė Al) Oh, and does being on a race entitle you to run people over? Huh? OMG . . . imagine if the clue stated that they were to "drive yourselves" to the next destination . . . and Christie was behind the wheel. ARGHHH, everyone watch out, itís crazy maniac Christie on the loose!!!!! On to the plow detour. Christie, if it was sooo "obvious" you and Colin weren't doing it the way it was suppose to be done? Why isn't it obvious that you weren't doing anything at all besides making Colin self-destruct and think that his "ox was broken" LOL. . . hehehe . . . .
Then again I know the editing process could play some pretty interesting tricks on us all, but the cameras don't lie.
Next week should be equally as exciting and interesting. The wrath of Colin. Shhhesssh, I wouldn't want to be on the end of that. I also doubt that the Yield will be in play on the last leg, so if anyone is going to get Yielded it would be earlier in the show, because next week is a 2-hour special so they are going to show two legs And can Colin and Christie be Yielded again by another team?????
HMMM . . . okay, Louis . . . your take?
Thereís so much to write . . . . Anywayz, Iíll just say that Brandon and Nicole I like very much. Iím starting to really root for them, and Chip and Kim, and Linda and Karen. Forget, errr, you know who. I liked how Brandon did the dance and spiderman thing. That was funny, hehehe. Brandon and Nicole are so supportive of one another . . . that reminds of a team from last season. Guess who Iím talking about?
Thanks for the compliment and thanks for adding your two bits from down under.
MY prediction of the winner . . . . LOL. I have no idea but I will go out on a limb and hope and pray that we will be happy with the winner . . . and it might be their first time being in first place.
Until next week and TARCON5
