Rob: You know, and I don't know if that was intentional. That was one window into the producers' minds that we didn't get a chance to see. I think it might be because over the course of the race, there were different interpretations of clues sometimes -- people would argue that they should be able to do this, or do that. Like the train argument, you know. So I think the producers just leaned toward, well, let's avoid that, and just make the clues a little more straightforward.

Miss Alli: All right, infuriated pack-tossing in India. What's your deal?

[Here, they discuss what they want to say about this, because part of it is stuff they can't get into. Brennan then has this to say about the OTHER part of why Rob was so pissed.]

Brennan: It was also a result of sleeping out all night long at the rat temple, bothered by the locals, and then getting the drunken cab driver who got us completely lost, and we're yelling at the top of our lungs -- in fact, I never heard Rob yell so loud during the whole race as when we were yelling at this guy to stop, because he's just got us completely lost, and finally Rob just yells at the top of his lungs, "Just STOOOOOOP!" He stopped in his tracks finally, gets out of the car, goes wandering off into the woods drunk. Finally gets back into the car, and we end up hiring a -- it's like five o'clock in the morning, we end up hiring a motorized rickshaw for us to have our car follow. Finally get to the palace, and that was kind of the immediate reason. He wouldn't have been so mad -- I was, too, I just -- I didn't grab my pack, but we were both mad.

Rob: I would just say it was a combination of all those things.

Miss Alli: It seemed like you got no lead from your Fast Forward. Why is that?

Rob: Well, that's the whole -- taking the Fast Forward in the first leg...

Miss Alli: But even though you took it in the first leg, it seemed like later ones, you would at least get a few hours. Y'all seemed to get nothing.

Rob: Well, it's -- we answer this question all the time, and it's just, we didn't know how the game worked at that point. We thought a Fast Forward was something that was designed to catapult a team in last place into first place. So if we take it in the first round, it's going to give us a seven- or eight-hour lead that we're going to be able to keep for a few legs and be safe. We didn't know about the extremity of the bunching, you know, and how it happens ALL the TIME.
