GPIA. It's not so much that the teams are unlikable, per se, but rather that they're all performers. They all seem to be trying too hard for the camera. It's better when you get regular people who are intent on winning the race. These guys are too interested in their brands, as evidenced by the constant Twitter handles onscreen.

Also, the editing has a different feel than prior years. It reminds me of how Quantum of Solace looked different than Casino Royale. Very distracting. Trying too hard to be artsy.

I am with OJ in giving it one more episode but I think I'm out until September as well.

Second episode was better than the first, but still not great. I think I'll give it one more.

That woman who started talking about a fish getting inside her bathing suit and flapping around in her nether-regions was an example of how some people need to learn not to share everything.

I'm back in...if you're way behind then I would say jump in now or just start fresh next season. No one is super likeable or hateable this season. They're down to 5 or 6 teams. I enjoyed the last episode because they had them running around Venice so for once I knew where they were a few times
