PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

I think your memory of the show is significantly flawed -- there's plenty of things to bash the producers about, but their handling of the Grad Students team's injury really isn't one of them.

The Grad Student girls weren't "disqualified" by the producers -- before it was time for the Episode 3 leg to begin, they decided to quit. Their decision to quit resulted in the Browns -- the team "eliminated" at the end of Episode 2 -- coming back for Episode 3. And the "leave one member behind" option only came at the end of Episode 4 (after Episode 3's leg ended with the Hanlons being eliminated on a Boston Harbor island), not in Episode 3.

But even if things had played out as you incorrectly remember, what would you have proposed the producers do, tell the girls that they might want to reconsider their decision because halfway through the next leg all the teams were going to have the surprise chance to dump a team member? Sharing secret information about the upcoming game would be fair? Plus, if I remember right, when they quit, the other two uninjured girls even commented that they had no interest in continuing in the competition if they couldn't compete all together.
