I am very glad that Mark and Mike got penalized for tampering with the tire pumps. Trying to sabotage other teams is just tacky. And I am especially glad that the penalties let two other teams beat them out.
While I mostly like Mike and Mel, they deserved to get eliminated this time out. It took them way too long to believe the guy who was telling them the statue was at the zoo. What I am really wondering is why none of the teams tried to get information from other passengers on the plane from Bangkok to Phuket. Talking to the locals is always good strategy.
