Hey there, Racers!
How about them twists and turns. You thought you knew the game, but you were wrong, wrong, wrong. Who would have thought there would be a non-pitstop elimination? Not you, Bilal and Sa'eed. You don't even get a Native Greeter. Bye! Don't bother asking me the point of adding an extra team and then an extra elimination to get rid of the extra team. It doesn't have to make sense as long as we mess with your confidence.
Tyler and James! You're the first team to arrive. Here's 20 grand. That'll get you some of that land you wanted to buy if you won the Race.
Duke and Lauren You're both pretty emotional people, aren't you? Well, that's nice.
Peter and Sarah Good job getting up the wall. Did Peter's encouragement not get on your nerves, though, Sarah? I mean, come on. Just a bit over the top.
Dustin and Kandice You surely did motor through the Labor task. Good finish.
Rob and Kimberly So...you were saying stuff about how teams that are respectful of each other do better in the Race. I know Kimberly said that.
Kellie and Jamie *looks around* Go ahead...Bilal's back is turned...go shake hands with him. It's funny that the uncoordinated boyfriends (did you see Tom on the wall?) got the Tai Chi thing first.
Erwin and Godwin I guess none of Godwin's 14 dead languages helped in
your homeland China, huh?
Tom and Terry Wasn't that relaxing? Sure, moving a flat paddle with a ball around without dropping the ball isn't frustrating at all.
Lyn and Karlyn I didn't laugh at all as Karlyn was climbing the wall. If your dislike of Sarah and Peter continues, it might be the weirdest feud ever.
David and Mary It was funny how Mary offered support to Tom, but snapped at David to get going.
Vipul and Arti You're the last team to arrive. You had the potential to be a very interesting team. Sorry to see you go.
Please keep the game in the game thread or Bebo will come and kick your butt. You know she will.
New players are welcome! All the Racers (as well as The Native Greeter, Phil's Golf Equipment and Phil's Turtleneck) have been spoken for except David and Tom.
Anyone may post as a camera or sound person (see sign-up thread for sigs, if you like), locals, the fish heads or whatever. Be creative!
