I know that few will agree with me on either one of these, but here goes:

AR2 - Will and Tara get beat my 10 seconds af the Finish Line because Tara can't run like Chris and Alex and loses their lead in a footrace.


Okay, it took a while, because I had to get season one and season two and then find time to watch but I will disagree with you on this one...Will and Tara losing the foot race would have been devastating if Will or Tara were even remotely likeable racers. Neither one of them had even a grain of sense, decency or decorum during this race. Now, I know, it is a competition and a race with a grand prize of 1 million dollars, so one must have some sort of manicalness in them, but, give me a break. Will browbeating Tara and the other competitors every single minute of every single leg and then having the nerve to apologize over and over again only to (television time) minutes later go off again was just east of insane. And Tara doing the same to Will and "fraternizing" with the enemies in just unconscionable. Even may led some to feel that her "tired" run at the end was just a play for Chris and Alex to win. (I had thought that after reading your post and before watching the entire season. I don't believe that now. She was dog tired. But for a million bucks, suck it up!)

As for an elimination that was sad, I would go with Blake and Paige only because in the grand scheme of things they were truly racers who didn't annoy, bitch, badger, condesend or grate on the other racers (and this viewer).

I agree with you about Tara & Wil's elimination not being sad at all!  Until Jonathan the Jerk & Victoria came along, this was my least favorite team!  I was sad that Blake & Paige were eliminated, but even more sad that Danny & Oswald were.

Will & Tara were the team that were along with Team Guido, the most hated teams in the first two seasons of the race. Actually, now that I have seen Team Guido in a different light and actually talked to them during All Stars, I'll make Will & Tara the most hated team until Jonathan & Victoria.

I was so happy to see Chris & Alex win. Will was a jerk. Tara wasn't much better. She flirted openly with Alex. Come on. What is that? Tara may be a nice person, but she didn't show in TAR2 and I was so happy she and Will lost. Would have been one of the most undeserving teams to win this side of Zach & Flo.

I'll add Bernie & Henry from this latest season of TARA3. Wasn't expected and was very sad for me.

Tian and Jaree - They just decided to work together and stop bickering. That suck for me.
Nancy and Emily - It could have been the guidos!
Lena and Kristy - Damn those haybales!
Meredith and Gretchen - It was sad to see them go!
Gaghans - :(
Linda and Karen - They tried so hard on the last elimination leg.

It's mostly all female teams for me cause i root for them all the time. LMAO.

Well, I don't know about ever - but I have to agree it was very sad. As I said elsewhere, I didn't even  like them till this episode - thought they should have gone ages ago. But boy they sure earned it here - going thru that repeated torture at the holi (admittedly somewhat self-inflicted from not reading the clue as usual - but it did seem the crowd got a lot more vicious after Starr went thru unscathed - I bet the producers told them to let it loose!). And then they (finally) figured out the numbers on the wires by themselves - while the  loserboys would still be there counting cows and crapola if Tina hadn't told them - hope she'll be made to regret it!

Based on not previously posting on this thread and having some opinions about this subject, I have decided to offer this list of 11 teams that I consider to be the saddest elimination ever that season plus the 3 that I think are the sddest overall:

AR1 Nancy/Emily
AR2 Danny/Oswald
AR3 John Vito/Jill
AR4 Jon/Al (my nomination for the saddest elimination ever)
AR5 Linda/Karen
AR6 Bolo/Lori
AR7 Debbie/Bianca
AR8 The Gaghan Family(my nomination for second saddest elimination ever)
AR9 NO TEAM
AR10 Dustin/Kandice(my nomination for the third saddest elimination ever)
AR11 Rob and Amber
AR12 Kynt/Vyxsin

So who really is the saddest EVER?

I'm going to have to pick Stassi Schroeder from the family edition (which NEVER happened).

It was obvious she really wanted to be there and was completely gutted when they went home in Louisianna.

Aside from that:

Kynt and Vyxsin
Gaghan family (This team is a lie)
Lena and Kristy
Brian and Greg
Aaaand:
Kelly and Christy (I know it was completely down to their own stupidity, but I was still sad to see them go home.)

So who really is the saddest EVER?


As of Sunday, Toni & Dallas.

I don't find Lori & Bolo's or Rob & Amber's All-Stars elimination sad at all. I was happy to see Rob & Amber leave! And Kynt & Vyxsin really weren't that special a team for me to be terribly sad to see them leave. I was just mad that Nathan & Jennifer escaped elimination.

I pretty much agree with all the others.

cdfe88,
That was exactly correct.  Karen did do it and finished that difficult climb. However, she could not come within 20 minutes of the time Colin took to do (maybe 5 to 10 minutes), so they were eliminated at the nearby beach.

I'd actually want to see C/C in all-stars2 to see how christie does on roadblocks...

I doubt that Colin would be much different as that is his personality. However, those wanting to see Christie do Roadblocks will find that she is quite competent. I am not looking forward to any repeat of All-Stars (I like regular races better), but if there was one the first team I would ask would be Colin/Christie.

10. Kellie and Jamie or Dustin and Kandice
11. Jon Vito and Jill all-stars
