        At first I liked them but after I while I didn't. First for U-turning Amanda & Kris. Next Luke shoved away Jen from the cluebox. Some people hate Kisha & Jen for insulting Luke, but hah! They are just doing that because he is deaf, and they pity him for that, Deaf or not, you don't shove people away. Kisha & Jen are quite good, they arrived first at the U-turn but didn't U-turn anyone, if I were them I would have U-turned Christie & Jodi who were right behind me.
