well, it was pretty sad this week without mel and mike (who were on fresh air a few days ago, by the way!), but i watched anyway, hoping that either the identical redheaded cheerleaders or the very short stuntmen would be eliminated. i've grown, actually, to dislike the stuntmen most of all. however, the most ridiculous moments of this week's show involved them:
1) "all i knew was we had to please these crazy local girls - pretty local girls, i should say!" said either mark or michael, in reference to singing karaoke in a taxi with a bunch of thai transvestites.
2) "in the land of buddha, i don't want to create bad karma," said either michael or mark, as phil stared at him, stony-faced.
3) even though they incurred four hours of penalty for breaking the rules of the race, and came in last, they were not eliminated.
