No kidding! He is a nut!!!

I was so bummed that it was all "rerun" stuff. I know some was new footage but I thought we would at least get to see if Bolo and Lori got to finish. UGH - another week!!

3am? Where do you live? What preempted it? As the others have said, it was a recap show. It showed a little bit more of the grandparents (MaryJane and ?) when they were putting together the bookcase in Ikea. How nicely they worked together! They didn't have to yell at each other to get things accomplished. I do miss them. I can only hope that DH and I still feel that way about each other in another 20-30 years! We did get to see more of how nice Kris and John are. It was nice to see the footage of people just having fun in their down time -- Lori teaching one of the other women wrestling moves in the snow was fun. We never get to see that stuff. Its always just run, run, run, hurry, hurry, hurry, yell, yell, yell, win, win, win. One new and interesting thing was what Bolo did to get on the plane early in the first leg from Chicago. He pretended to have CP! I don't think that bothered me, though it was very exploitive, but it did bother me that Lori said, 'My brother's a little slow.' People with CP are not 'slow'! Oh, yeah, and we did get to see that woman (sorry, I can never remember names) who said she thought the Berlin Wall would be more 'impressive'. Excuse me? Have you no idea what this was? It is not 'just a wall with graffiti on it.' This was a barrier that completely divided a country and separated families. It was a momentous occasion when it was taken down. I would be awestruck if I were standing in front of it. I think Hera and her father (and maybe the grandparents, too?) were the only ones that got the significance of the transition from the slave monument to the Berlin Wall.

Looking forward to next week. I'm thinking that Lori and Bolo make it. I don't think they would have left us with a cliffhanger if they just come in last as expected.

-Amy.

Amy, that got to me too. Was it Hayden? Anyway, her comments about the Berlin wall were just strange. I can't even remember the term she used to describe it, but it wasn't anything I've ever heard anyone use to describe the Berlin wall. Although, I guess as a kid I was surprised by how small it was too. Even when I was there as the wall was being taken down, I could almost jump up and touch the top of it. Of course, it had another few feet of barbed wire and such. And something a lot of people don't know is that there were technically TWO Berlin walls. There was the one in East Germany and then maybe 100 or so feet of "no man's land" and then another wall in West Germany. I remember going through Checkpoint Charlie before the official fall of the wall and coming back out and I remember standing next to it and chipping a piece of wood away. There was a huge hole and we'd stuck our heads through it. There were guards in a jeep with mounted machine guns in the "no man's land" portion between the two walls. It was weird seeing the outer wall covered in graffitti and the inner wall clean as can be. Anyway... my point, I guess that having been there already and seen it, her comments got to me like she's describing this wall of oppression should be fabulous to look at or something. Very weird!

I enjoyed the clip show and seeing some of the extra stuff that went on. It still didn't make me like Jonathan anymore than I did. I find it strange though that they showed Victoria screaming at him, telling him to shut up and calling him an idiot in the beginning shows but they don't show that now. They mostly just show him screaming at her, slamming the trunk down on her head, pushing her and oh, screaming at her some more. Makes me wonder if she stopped doing it or they just aren't showing it. Funny how they cut out the shove last night, isn't it? The looks on the Ikea employees faces as those two yelled at each other was a funny one, then how she kept saying... what was it, "Small pegs... little pegs" whatever over and over and over, cracked me up! I now think of them as "Spazzpants" because the person that recaps the show on Television Without Pity calls them that, it's so fitting.

I never really thought much about Kris and Jon before but after last night's episode I really began to like them. I know the recap guy is always talking about how happy Kris always is and how she's always smiling, it's true, she really seems to always find the best in a situation. I loved the scene with them going swimming and enjoying the time there while editing kept cutting back to whatsherface complaining about that "wretched" city.

I only watched last night because I read somewhere that it would be a clip show but we'd also find out who got eliminated. So, I was disappointed that we didn't find that out but glad I watched for the new footage. I'm in agreement with the person before me who said that it seems something must happen to help Lori and Bolo catch up, or else what was the point of having it "To Be Continued..."

I agree. I love Kris and Jon even more now. She is very intelligent and down to earth. I liked when she said that she better not see signs of anyone being an "ugly American" or she would be mad. She needs to talk to Kendra then, because if that girl says one more stupid thing......I also didn't realize that Hayden was kind of a dimwit too.
Hera also made a good point on how lucky we are as Americans and how much she appreciates her passport and how it gives her a chance to see so much and how lucky we as Americans can do all that.
Jonathan is a freak.....nothing will change my mind about that. The "synagouge" comment was classic....almost as good as Colin's "My ox is broke." I think that they didn't show him raising his hand to her because so many people are outraged. We were talking about it at work the other day and someone who doesn't watch the show knew what we were talking about because they are even talking about him on morning radio shows and what an ass he is. I hope his business suffers after this.

Okay, I'm done ranting :)

What I thought was so "hysterical" was the clips of Jonathan talking about how impressed he was with himself. What an ego that guy has.

I wasn't sure when Lori and Bolo used the CP "trick" if she meant he was slow mentally or physically. I was going to give her the benefit of the doubt and think she meant physically and that's why he needed to go through the line ahead of everyone else. I'm just hoping they don't get eliminted on this leg. I'm really liking them and sometimes he just reminds me of a big, dumb kid, lol.
