Survivor taught me how to work with people and make alliances which will hopefully help us in the race to strategize with other teams, so as not to get U-turned!

Survivor definitely helps prepare you for the The Amazing Race! You learn to be extremely adaptable on Survivor and I feel those skills are very necessary to overcome the challenges on The Amazing Race.

I remember these guys from Survivor. They were pretty likable overall. But I think they are a bit...um....slothlike. Don't expect to see Colin levels of speed.

Two big guys who were likeable and had a good bromance going on, but they tried two different challenges in this episode and sucked at both of them.  

The thing with finding the coins underwater seemed doable, but no one actually completed that

They were likable guys.  It seems like they either really sucked, or were really good, at stuff.

Only two teams even tried the coin thing, right?  It really didn't seem like it should have been *that* hard.  I mean, obviously, the stuff they were supposed to find was planted, it's not like they were *really* treasure hunting.

There were three teams on the coins if you count the brief time Colin and Christie were there.   Both these guys and Tyler and Korey were attempting it at first.  

I think they just grew frustrated with the area that they had to cover and they didn’t seem to really have an organized way of searching it.  The areas they kept showing from the aerial view seemed quite large, and they didn’t seem to be searching very far from the buoy thing, which didn’t help.

Ah, yeah, I'd forgotten about Colin & Christie.  

You would think a cop would have some idea of how to do an organized & methodical search pattern, at least more organized than what was depicted to us.  From the terrain they showed us underwater, it almost seems like that goblet would have been spottable just with your eyeballs... but then I wasn't there.

I was wondering while watching, just how big of a radius out from the bouys, were the official search areas?  Those whole darker-colored areas?  Those were pretty damned big.

And then I think it was Colin who went and stirred up all the silt into the water in their area... which seemed like a dumb thing to do.

Yes, I think those circular areas highlighted around the buoys in the aerial shots were supposed to be the search areas, and they did seem quite a bit larger than the areas they were searching.   They always seemed to pop up very close to the central buoy.  I wonder if the clue even mentioned how big the area was supposed to be.  If it didn’t, then it was a poorly planned task and a shame that they got caught by it.

I liked these guys - liked them on Survivor, too. They had a mostly good attitude about the race in general and laughed at themselves, which I always appreciate. If they had just stuck with the poetry task when they switched to it, they would likely not have lost. But they seemed fine with the ouster.
