What famous person reminds you of yourself? Norma Jean Baker.

 

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Turks and Caicos, because I want to catch lobsters with my bare hands.

Bubble bubble, toil and trouble. I got nothing, they seem normal, except she reminds herself of a very sad, abused, lonely, young Marilyn Monroe?

You, sir, are no Taye Diggs.

 

What are three turn-offs or pet peeves in a mate? Smokers (but learn to tolerate it), being mean and high maintenance.

 

Then it's really not a pet peeve, right? You either don't mind that someone smokes or you can't stand it. There's really no middle ground on this issue, is there?

 

Something tells me Jenny Wu will be the alpha in this couple.

Man, she went full on bitch last night. I'm not sure what he did that was so wrong, not sure he knew either, but she certainly was making him miserable for it.

I don't disagree with her stance that it's a race and knowing you cannot be another team in a footrace, you take advantages when you can. She was pretty much a harpy this whole race, though, and her sourpuss expression does not help.

But he had a point, too. Being helpful this early could come back to benefit you a leg or two down the line if the Lawyers needed help. They knew that NewKid was hours behind them because she said as much while waiting at the Road Block, so even if there was a footrace to the mat, both teams would have been safe.

Did anyone else want to reach though the TV screen and strangle her if she said, "Hurry, hurry, hurry!" one more time, when he had just started building the straw hut, as much as I did?

 

I know there have been many others like that on the race before; I guess it just annoyed me more because she's perpetuating her own stereotype.

I actually find them more dysfunctional than #MedicalWaste, Blair and Hayley. Jelani seems to passive-aggressive and Jenny just seems aggressive.

Now that you point it out, they are more dysfunctional than #MedicalWaste. Blair at least tries… these two have just completely shut down as a team.

Getting into the hot tub with a robe? What the hell was that all about? She must have been exceedingly uncomfortable the minute she stepped out of the hot tub.

 

They seem to be going through the motions.

The robe thing cracked me up! Like, being in a soaking wet robe was better than being in your underwear?
