The Amazing Race: Don't Be a Hater

Remember how Mary used to just love people with barely any reason? Yeah, now she's reached the point where she hates people with barely any reason. Charla and Mirna pass her, they're dead in her book. Likewise, David despises Kevin and Drew because Drew moved his bag. Yeesh. I understand that they want to fight harder and not rely on other teams so much so they can get farther in the race, but this is going a little too far in the other direction. Even Rob is being nice to other teams occasionally. It's too bad that David and Mary feel like they have to run the race that way, because they are no longer an appealing team. Especially when you compare them with the Guidos, who are enjoying themselves on this race. When the Guidos are more chill than you, that's when you really look bad.

Speaking of looking bad, the next time you're in Chile, check along the sides of the road for the scattered pieces of Mirna's mind. She loses it not only on the beauty queens (eh, but you knew she was going to hate them, rival blondes as they are) but on the local cab driver she hires to guide them to the pit stop. What was that you said last week about being good with the locals, Mirna?

As for Drew, he starts out this leg getting oxygen at the pit stop, and things don't get any better for him. Yes, they're eliminated, and Drew is so ready to go at that point that he walks off the mat before Phil can officially Philiminate them. This makes Phil sad and confused. I wish I could say that I'm sad to see those guys go, but at this point, it's just a relief. What was sad was watching Drew so thoroughly not enjoy himself. So long, frats.

P.S. Jessica is correct: David and Mary did take the Chos' bushel of kiwis shirts. And if what we see on other people's shirts can be believed, Eric is made entirely from recycled materials.
