Amazing Race
How Do We Know We Aren't Going To Get Shot?

Episode Report Card
Miss Alli: B | Grade It Now!
Antebellum? I hardly even know 'em!

And then, here comes Team Rogers. You are last. You are eliminated. Go away. Papa says, "I made a mistake and I led my guys in the wrong direction." In an interview, he says: "It's my responsibility to take the blame, if there's blame to be cast." Brock puts in, quite understandably, that if his family had listened to him better, they might not have been eliminated. Papa goes on to say this remarkable thing: "The one thing that I always tried to show Brock is you can't get to where you need to go in this life casting stones and blaming other people for your misfortunes." Hell of a job he's doing. You know, most people, if they said they were doing that, would mean that they were trying to teach their kids that everyone makes mistakes, and everyone needs to take responsibility for his or her own actions. But I get the feeling that in this situation, what Brock is actually supposed to learn is that everything is his personal fault. Like, it's not so much trying to teach Brock that some things are his fault, as much as it is to teach Brock that everything is his fault. It's sad that this isn't being conveyed as a lesson in people not being perfect and not everything even being a matter of blame, because that's what Papa himself seems fairly determined not to get.

Mama says, "After this race, I'm the glue that will hold us together." So she apparently believes they're going to need glue, so that's not good to hear. Nice. I'm very relieved that they're going away.

Excecutive Producer? Jerry Bruckheimer.

Next week: NASA stuff! The Aiellos having mud problems! Hey, I am actually concerned about that second one.
