Pet peeve about your teammate: She likes to take pictures of her poop and text them to us (family).

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would like to visit just about every country in the world because it helps you appreciate our differences culturally and makes you a more well-rounded and empathetic person.

Like them.  They seem smart and funny.  They should also do well with figuring out the best travel.

 

Taking pics of your poop and sending them to people is pretty quirky but to each their own I guess!!

The flight attendants struggled with the first challenge, and they finished in the back of the pack (8th place, I think).

From her bio Nici sounds like she could be an "Air Marshall" or something - a flight attendant with a backstory involving "Military Intelligence" schooling.

Too bad that schooling didn't involve the basics of reading a compas.

Relieving yourself from the boat was gross & embarrassing. Was it Shelly or Nici? I couldn't tell.

She could have just jumped in the water and at least rinse off.

I feel sorry for the taxi driver and whoever had to use that taxi after.

That must have been way longer than played out and seriously edited in for a laugh factor because who does that?  Just "accidently" fall in the water and pee and nobody would be the wiser!

Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance!

This team is not gonna last too much longer. 1st leg 8th place and 2nd leg 9th place - is not a winning team.

If they are truly fans and have watched the show for years - then they should know that these "detours & roadblocks" are not something that you can specifically 'train for'. Some of these tasks are designed to test your patience, or engineered to frustrate the racers, etc. It's not easy, but you need to have physical strength and mental toughness. Crying &whining is not helpful.

These two women started off this leg of the race with negative energy (in the parking lot trying to locate the car)and it seemed to get worse throughout the day - ending with Nicci's meltdown at the mat.

Shelly obviously knows her daughter, but that dose of "tough love" was hard to watch. They clearly need to work on their "mental toughness" and not turn their anger & frustration on each other.
