From Australia to Thailand: Say "Good-bye, MoJo"

This was a roller coaster episode for the Hippies. They started in last with 'no money & no pants'. The Frats and Yolanda & Ray were helpful enough to leave them some sandals and some purple workout pants. But instead of booking their tickets right away, they decided to hit the Darwinian nightlife up for some cash and ended up missing the flight that all the other teams were on. Oh, wait! They got a better flight! A flight that would get them into Bangkok 15 minutes before the other three teams. Oh, darn! The other teams got in 45 minutes early and they got in twenty minutes late.... : It was their saving grace that there was a Fast Forward on this leg because otherwise they would have been out of it for sure. Though maybe not - MoJo was really stupid about the bus. The Frats & Yolanda and Ray got a midnight bus; the Hippies got a 4:20am bus; and MoJo got a 5:20am bus but thought they were going to be first. Not sure if they were being optimistic or they really are just that naive (aka stupid).

Thank God we don't have to listen to Monica's infernal whining any more. Joseph must have the frickin' patience of a saint. I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or cry when he said to Phil that they were going to get married and have children in the future. I'm not sure what's scarier - Joseph marrying Monica or Monica having children. I would rather have a premanent recording of a dentist's drill implanted in my ear than spend a lifetime listening to Monica cry and carry on about how she dropped ten clay pots (Detour) because her arms were getting weak. Good luck and good riddance!

Not that we didn't know that someone would be eliminated this leg, but Phil gave it up when he welcomed the Hippies to the mat! He never gives it up! "Congratulations, you will be one of the three teams racing for a million dollars." Oh well, I'm not complaining. I'm really happy that MoJo are gone. This is the first time I've ever said this about the Amazing Race: there is not a single team racing to the finish that I wouldn't mind seeing win it. I do have my favourite team and they're still in it so, we'll see but each of the teams deserve to be there (another rarity). Though, the Hippies are there by pure luck. They made some mega mistakes on some legs and were only saved by other teams making worse mistakes or by the leg being a non-elimination one.

Best comment for this episode - though only because of the look on Monica's face after Jeremy replied (at the RoadBlock):

Monica to Jeremy after they finally arrived at the detour:
"We thought we were first."
Jeremy to Monica: "Well, you really thought wrong."

Next week is the Season Finale! Don't forget to set your VCRs, get home early, or turn on the little TV next to my desk (giggle, giggle). It's two hours and it looks like it's going to be a doozy. Looks like the Hippies bad luck with flights comes back to haunt them again....

Yes it was a good show. We finally got to see MOJO go. I was very surprised to see how JO was very supportive to MO, even though she was whining so hard!

And yes Rebecca, scary thought to picture MO as a mother. UGH she'd be crying more than the baby!

Next weeks finally looks good from the previews. Looks like the Hippies and the Frat Boys are in a race to be first. Granted out of the top 3 I want to see win is Ray and Yolanda. Yup I said Ray and Yolanda.

BJ and Tyler 2 win.
Looks like the frat boys are they're real competiton.
can not believe that Fran and Barry were first some luck they had. Very happy 2 know that MOJO's gone. Ray and Yolanda seem to make the challenges easy but i don't think they'll make it 2 the top 2 or 2 win, they're a bit boring.
Good luck BJ and TYLER.

Yeesh! SOMEONE deleted my last comment "by mistake":

Rebecca?! I can't believe Gus called me Rebecca!

I think Ray & Yolanda will win but I want the Frat Boys to win it. They've been my main pick all along.

PS - did you know that two of the teams I picked at the beginning of this season are in the Final Three?! I'm telling you - I'M PSYCHIC! (watch this, though. the one team I didn't pick will win it. :P )

OOOPS my Bad LOLO! Sorry for calling you Rebecca. I know the difference NOW :)

Rooting for the hippies.
It would be cool to see a team who get stripped almost all the belonging to finished 1st at the final and win!
