Luke,

You mentioned that you have been in contact with Collin of TARA2. How much of that season did you watch?

Luke, if you had gotten to the second U-Turn, and had seen that it was unused, without knowing where Tammy & Victor were, would you and your Mom have U-Turned Tammy & Victor without hesitation?

What do you think about teams using the U-Turn/Yield to settle personal grudges instead of using it to eliminate strong teams?

Finally, did you and your Mom ever seriously consider U-Turning Kisha & Jen because of the fight?

Thanks.

To answer your question, Slayton...

There's no questions that Mom and I would U-Turn Tammy & Victor in Beijing in a second if we knew we were ahead of them. But, if Tammy & Victor were ahead of us and didn't use U-Turn and we were next there, we would have u-turned Kisha & Jen in order to save Jaime & Cara.

I really hate how the teams only use U-Turn/Yield for personal reasons, not strategic reasons to eliminate strongest team. That annoys me pretty much. The Million Dollars' at the stake!

About u-turning Kisha & Jen, if we got a chance to do that, the fight won't be the reason, it'll be more as strategic reason since it was impossible to beat them in the footrace. Our U-Turn Target Order: Tammy & Victor then Kisha & Jen then Jaime & Cara.

Hindsight, Tammy & Victor should have u-turned us, not Kisha & Jen! I think the only one reason they didn't u-turned us so that way they wouldn't look like complete fool for forcing me to do a Chinese Waiter task which I couldn't hear & talk at all. I guess that's what saved my mom and me and propelled into the Final Three.

Thanks for the response, Luke.

About Tammy & Victor not U-Turning your team, in one of the insider videos for your season, Tammy & Victor, in a taxi in India, talked about how you and your Mom gave them money in one of the legs.

That might have played a role in their decision to not U-Turn your team.

Oh that's right! I completely forgot about money we gave to Tammy & Victor in India. When they asked me for some money to lend them since they were pretty short with their money. At first, I was skeptical about giving them some money but then Mom made a valid point, "Since they need our help now and we might need their help down the road so don't turn them away, Luke. That may benefits us later."  I guess we made a right move.

Luke, I think the reason it was Kisha and Jen that were U-Turned was that Tammy and Victor couldn't beat them in a foot race either. Also, they would've aced that pig task and that could've given them potential to beat Tammy/Victor.

Side note: Nice u hate the U-Turn for personal reasons. Maybe u could teach Louie and Mike a lesson.  :tup:

Kisha and Jen rocking the pig task would have probably been offset by their fear of water, remembering one of the clues had to be retrieved from a buoy in the ocean.

Luke,
I have a question that I believe you can answer best:

I have developed the impression over 16 seasons of watching the Amazing Race that the places where tasks will occur are always identified in clues in both English and the local language when it was not English. The rationale for this would be to allow taxi drivers who do not speak English to be utilized and to be able to show it to locals who do not speak English. Is this true not at all? some of the time? or all the time? Can you provide some examples.

I think Kisha could've done that for the team. She doesn't have an issue with water it's Jen who's hydrophobic.
