One team consists of one half of the gay classical plus other genres quartet Well-Strung. That name, of course, is no coincidence, but I've seen some youtube videos of WS and they're quite fun. Here's their website http://well-strung.com/. I'll be rooting for them.

I don't watch Big Brother, but I can't see that couple doing well.

The firefighters look amusing from the promos.

Will be interesting to see the competitive eaters.

None of the teams have really been standing out for me so far.

I expected the Big Brother team to be annoying and self destruct but they've been a strong team so far and seem to get along, of course that could change.

I have a soft spot for the Yale/Debate team, but that's probably just because I can appreciate/relate to nerds. Unfortunately I suspect a physical challenge will do them in before long.

Finding the Competitive Eaters to be a little annoying.

As usual I've enjoyed the places they visit, Iceland in particular amazed me. It's surprising how many things have been filmed/set in Iceland recently. Sense 8, an episode of Black Mirror and Vikings to name a few.

The Yalies rallied after their Frites mishap. I like them personally. I kind of like the Big Brother duo. Well-Strung is letting their gay shine a little in speech and in dance. That's all fine. I like the skiers. They're fun. Everyone else is okay. But not very strong as teams. I've also liked the places traveled to.

Not a fan of the head to head. Just seems to not fit with the normal aim of the show.

Otherwise I'm enjoying this season. There really aren't any teams that annoy me too much. I like the skiers and the Yale couple. Even the Big Brother team is strong and not ticking me off

The partner switch was interesting, but I'm glad they just did it for one leg.

The last few weeks they've been doing 2 episodes each week. Could be wrong, but I'm guessing that means the ratings aren't great and they are trying to get through the episodes as quickly as possible. If I'm right I doubt that we'll see an Amazing Race Season 31.

Funny lines from this week -
We're looking for the wolf frogs!

There are balls in the back (of the camel they were milking!) The hermaphrodite camel.

Elephant challenge - very cool.
Frog challenge - I would never do in a million years. I hate frogs!!

The scorpions on the partner was pretty horrendous!

I agree that the double episodes does not bode well for the future of TAR.
