EP#1 Which team is is the first team Philiminated?
« on: February 08, 2009, 04:42:26 PM »
The world is waiting for you to screw up and be the first person sent on a wonderful vacation with a bunch of other losers.  But being first you get to pick the best room, so you get some perks.

Does anyone know how hard it's going to be to not make fun of the M & M teams?  Oh how about Luke (who I already want to win)?  Then we have Tammy's voice, oh who am I kidding you are all far game.

1.  Gut reaction, who's you final three?

2.  Who is going to laugh their ass off (since the diet sure isn't doing it) when none of the three all female fit teams end up winning (again....)?

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it.

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again?

5:  Which teams gonna be the first to hit the mat?

1.  Gut reaction, who's you final three?  MArgie & Luke ( I Told you I am already in love with this team, please don't make me hate you), Amanda & Chris, & Team Red Hot (just to give Michael someone to get disappointed by).

2.  Who is going to laugh their ass off (since the diet sure isn't doing it) when none of the three all female fit teams end up winning (again....)?  That would be me.  I am all for a female team winning, but casting sure is trying to make sure it happens.

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it.  Lord just after their intro video. 

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again?  Lets see if a female team wins this year, then I would guess next cycle if not, god only knows.

5:  Which teams gonna be the first to hit the mat?  Oh what the hell Amanda & Chris

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it. I'm not really, IMO :P I could be after a while, though

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again? They will never cast another young fit all-male team ever again XD

5:  Which teams gonna be the first to hit the mat? I'll go out on a limb and suggest Cara & Jaime. If not them, then Amanda & Kris.

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again?  Too many!

And bye-bye, Linda & Steve!  You will be forever labelled as "Losers"!

1.  Gut reaction, who's your final three? Amanda & Kris, Cara & Jaime, and Tammy & Victor.  Largely based on spoilers and speculation, but also because they feel like that to me.

2.  Who is going to laugh their ass off (since the diet sure isn't doing it) when none of the three all-female fit teams end up winning (again....)?  Not me, but these two annoying posters named AlsoKnownAsJer2002 and VentDeMilo over on Survivor Sucks certainly will.  Don't know of anyone here who will, other than mswood.

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound," you get a pass on the voice, but that's it.  I'm not.  At least not yet.  We'll see as the season goes on.

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young, fit, all-male team to be cast as racers again?  Hopefully, it'll never happen again.  Or at least not until we finally get an all-female team as winners.

5:  Which teams gonna be the first to hit the mat?  Depends.  First Pit Stop?  Probably Tammy & Victor, Amanda & Kris, or Margie & Luke.  If you mean the finish line, then I hope it's Cara & Jaime.

Poor Linda & Steve......

And it isn't that I don't want an all female team to win.  I just want them to win on a season when they have all types of racers to race against.  Not all fit young male teams win (or even race that well), but by excluding that group it a message to the other racers saying you aren't good enough to beat them so we wont cast any.

And as a women that sucks.

Take season 7 for example Brian and Greg, fun loving bros fit and athletic, but not very solid racers.  And I was so hoping to see a women team do well (Oh look wrong side of the continent, Oh!!).

Darn, you are asking a lot for before the first leg, mswood. I should not have been responding to this after my bedtime because I get things wrong then (and have ot fix them the next morning like i have just done below):

1.  Gut reaction, who's you final three? I am willing to speculate Mark and Michael and Tammy and Victor. I have no idea who the third team will be.

2.  Who is going to laugh their ass off (since the diet sure isn't doing it) when none of the three all female fit teams end up winning (again....)? It won't be Belle Book and it won't be Michael.

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it. I haven't paid any attention to it.

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again? It could be in the next century based on recent trends in casting for Amazing Races.

5:  Which teams gonna be the first to hit the mat? I think it will be Tammy/Victor.

Not all fit young male teams win (or even race that well)
And yet, FIVE have won.
Rob & Brennan, Chris & Alex, Reichen & Chip, Tyler & James.  

Thats only four, but its besides the point.  Should we stop having fit young couples because they have won the most races?

Now whats interesting is that most of the times young fit women lose, it isn't due to a strength tasks.  It's usually based on mental tasks (or choices of tasks).

Lets look at the seasons.

Season 1:  REally didn't cast young fit athletic women, the closest was Kim & Leslie and they lost due to not following the clue.
Season 2:  Mary & PEach.  Killed by failure to follow the clue, that was double impacted by being late and still going after FF.
Season Three:  Heather & Eve killed by failure to follow the clues instructions.
Season 4: Tian & Jaree (I don't consider Monica & Sheree who were killed by not being able to get around India) killed by their choice of tasks (they took the passive task and that allowed another team to pass them.
Season 5:  Karli & Kami were young, I am not so sure about fit.  They were killed for being slower then everyone (including two middle aged women).  Behind in every aspect of their final leg.
Season Six:  Meredith & MAria couldn't drive or navigate if their lives depended on it.  Lena & Christy  finally we have a team were the physical condition of the task was a big part f the reason they lost (that and very possible not paying enough attention).
Season 7:  Megan & Heidi completely unprepared for the stress of the race (their own words), Debbie & Bianca in a place were they spoke the language better then anyone they drove to the wrong side of the continent.
Season Nine:  Dani & Danielle killed because they couldn't navigate (which made back in the pack and victims of the Yield, only successful Yield)
Season Ten:  Kelly & Jamie because they couldn't navigate, Dustin & Kandice a careless mistake with location, and then choosing the slower task.
Season 11:  Dustin & Kandice unable to finish a non physical task.
Season 12:  Marianna & Julie last due to helping the team that was behind them.  Shana & Jennifer last due to navigation and a mental task.
Season 13:  Melissa & Brooke hopeless, Kelly & Christy had a killer day that was created by them not reading and following the simple instructions of the clue.

There is one example where the physical nature of the tasks made it easier for the a fit athletic man to do it.  One.

So I can't hold that fact against young fit male teams.

Any preference on which one I know in season 9 I was extremely happy to see John and Scott get eliminated as they were hopeless.  And as for Avi & Joe after the 1st five minutes of the episode anyone except Jonathan & Victoria getting eliminated was a let down.

And yes!  Yes, we should!

You don't know that.  I just saw two guys who were in a very solid position on that first leg, only to get it blown away when they got screwed by a completely incompetent driver who not only didn't know where he was going, but also didn't care.

I wouldn't consider BJ & Tyler (who did do well and won their season) as fit, young athletic men.  Based on 4 websites I go to most of the dislike of all male teams goes specifically towards young, fit athletic teams.  I rarely hear complaints about teams that fit a more average male form.  Heck look at season 10 and most of the negative complaints about the casting was about Tyler & James, not Erwin & Godwin who were also both fit and young and even intellegent.

As for John and Scott, while it is absolutely true that we have little to judge their performance.  What we did have shows them being last to get to the airport, last out of their group (to get to Sao Paulo) to get to and finish the first route marker task (even fact getting past by several teams on what's amounts to going to a roof and coming back down.  In fact they only made two one choice that I give them credit for, and that is not blindly signing up for the first flight they got to (like Lisa & Joni did), they got on the first flight (thanks not to their own planning or performance but by the first flight being delayed).  And yes they did get stuck with either a bad cab (or just one they weren't able to communicate with since that is a big factor), but the fact that they ditched said cab not at a hotel (where you tend to be able to get better travel arrangements, its been used many times in most seasons) and instead ending up in a street where they did have great trouble getting directions or assistance.

Now some teams do have terrible first legs and do manage to learn from their mistakes, but I personally (just a gut reaction) don't know if this team would have ever thrived afterwards.

I'm going to be disgusted and start throwing a tantrum that i won't watch TAR again.. for about 3 seconds.

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?
Haven't heard, but doesn't sound good.

None ever again, unless they are as hot as Derek and Drew. :funny:

There was also season 7 where an all male team was eliminated first.  In fact more all male teams have been eliminated first then all female.  
TAR10 also saw a men's team go out first, mswood -- and not even at a Pit Stop, either!

And only two women's teams have gone home first -- Deidre & Hillary (TAR2) and Gina & Sylvia (TAR3).  The rest were men's teams and coed teams.

And to be fair to Scott, he'd probably have done a lot better had he gone on the show with someone other than John.

And yet, FIVE have won.

Men usually do a little better in this race then women do, it sounds sexiest but it's true, beside Chris&Alex who were mostley lucky all other male teams wining this race where strong teams.

I think the problem is with the casting, CBS should cast female teams that are fans of the race and really want to win it like Linda&Keren, Charla&Mirna, Mary&Peach and Lyn&Karlyn and not women who want's to promote their non existing acting careers or completly lost cases like Marisa&Brooke or Pat&kate.
Dustin&Kandice where truly a stong team , they did a lot of dumb mistakes but still a strong one. but most of the teams that where casted under their type casting don't do as well and trying to recast them in the past two seasons did bring the wanted outcome.
I don't know how their current replacments Cara&Jaime would do in this race and i don't think it's importent, the casting people in CBS should work a little harder with the female/female teams and don't cast the same pretty athletic girls over and over again.

And yet, FIVE have won.
Rob & Brennan, Chris & Alex, Reichen & Chip, Tyler & James.  

Thats only four, but its besides the point.  Should we stop having fit young couples because they have won the most races?

Now whats interesting is that most of the times young fit women lose, it isn't due to a strength tasks.  It's usually based on mental tasks (or choices of tasks). Please remember that they beat a tougher male/male team of Eric/Jeremy wo win AR9.

Lets look at the seasons.

Season 1:  REally didn't cast young fit athletic women, the closest was Kim & Leslie and they lost due to not following the clue.
Season 2:  Mary & PEach.  Killed by failure to follow the clue, that was double impacted by being late and still going after FF.
Season Three:  Heather & Eve killed by failure to follow the clues instructions.
Season 4: Tian & Jaree (I don't consider Monica & Sheree who were killed by not being able to get around India) killed by their choice of tasks (they took the passive task and that allowed another team to pass them.
Season 5:  Karli & Kami were young, I am not so sure about fit.  They were killed for being slower then everyone (including two middle aged women).  Behind in every aspect of their final leg.
Season Six:  Meredith & MAria couldn't drive or navigate if their lives depended on it.  Lena & Christy  finally we have a team were the physical condition of the task was a big part f the reason they lost (that and very possible not paying enough attention).
Season 7:  Megan & Heidi completely unprepared for the stress of the race (their own words), Debbie & Bianca in a place were they spoke the language better then anyone they drove to the wrong side of the continent.
Season Nine:  Dani & Danielle killed because they couldn't navigate (which made back in the pack and victims of the Yield, only successful Yield)
Season Ten:  Kelly & Jamie because they couldn't navigate, Dustin & Kandice a careless mistake with location, and then choosing the slower task.
Season 11:  Dustin & Kandice unable to finish a non physical task.
Season 12:  Marianna & Julie last due to helping the team that was behind them.  Shana & Jennifer last due to navigation and a mental task.
Season 13:  Melissa & Brooke hopeless, Kelly & Christy had a killer day that was created by them not reading and following the simple instructions of the clue.

There is one example where the physical nature of the tasks made it easier for the a fit athletic man to do it.  One.

So I can't hold that fact against young fit male teams.

mswood, I agree with Ashe. When you add BJ & Tyler (male and fit last itme I looked), you have 5! Thye had to beat Eric/Jeremy for that win, a tought male/male team.

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it. mswood

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again? Ten

I wish it'll be the all-male team to be the 1st team to eliminate on TAR 14 just like what happened to seasons 6 & 9. ;D
There was also season 7 where an all male team was eliminated first.  In fact more all male teams have been eliminated first then all female.  
TAR10 also saw a men's team go out first, mswood -- and not even at a Pit Stop, either!

And only two women's teams have gone home first -- Deidre & Hillary (TAR2) and Gina & Sylvia (TAR3).  The rest were men's teams and coed teams.

And to be fair to Scott, he'd probably have done a lot better had he gone on the show with someone other than John.
God, I forgot all about that, thanks for the reminder.  I am an idiot.

Me. I don't know when one will, but I'll be laughing even when one does. I just can't see it happening if it hasen't in 13 seasons.


3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it. I can really feel the Tammy love from you...

4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again?
A while, but I'm hoping they do it soon. It's always good to have athletic talent in there, even if they do end up always winning!

Well, my picks was the 1st to hit the mat in the last primer, so why not this time? Amanda & Kris

he, he.  John looked like he was a tourist.  Which yeah, I can understand.  But unfortunately it isn't a reality for those who are really racing as you get so little time to actually take everything in.

I pick on all the racers.  But with just a little to go on (mainly the pre race interviews), I was stuck with making fun of her voice, or making fun of the M & M's, or Luke.  And I wasn't brave enough yet, to go their.

Hell I made fun of Linda & Karin's voices (I mean shrieking), but I loved those ladies.  So I really don't mean it in a nasty way.

Ok, I was trying to make a witty joke, but thats all. I'm sorry if you don't find any of this funny, but if you don't, can you at least let us enjoy it? What I personally enjoy about RFF, aside from the amazing detective work and passion for the show that challenges mine, is that we don't argue. We just enjoy the show. I don't want to be rude here, but I just find it offending that you believe I can't be a fun guy simply because I liked Nate and Jenn.

Hi, all.  I'm a first-time poster here, but have lurked here since TAR12.  I was actually once thanked by puddin for finding out about Terence & Sarah's names before TAR13 even started.  I've posted on TWoP, TV.com, and Survivor Sucks for a long time and am now looking to add this place to my list.  Provided things are kept very friendly here.

I think the problem is with the casting, CBS should cast female teams that are fans of the race and really want to win it like Linda&Keren, Charla&Mirna, Mary&Peach and Lyn&Karlyn and not women who want's to promote their non existing acting careers or completly lost cases like Marisa&Brooke or Pat&kate.

I completely agree. Those were the teams who were real fans and really survived hell long.

However i think that the they really can't satisfy everyone with the teams they would like to see.. they can cast a whole bunch of fit and healthy young couples (TAR 6) and we get a boring race (no underdogs.. after so many seasons.. we all know most people love the underdogs!).. or they can have just a few fit all-male teams and have them dominating the race. (TAR2, TAR 4, TAR 9 etc)

I think the teams and how they perform really make up the essence of the show. I know we all hate mactors wannabe going on the show so that they can jumpstart their career.. but almost every team in TARA1,2,3 are mactors and we still love the seasons as well.. so we can't say much about mactors who ain't real fans and shouldn't be on the show. (I know, fans should deserved to race more than those who don't.. but nothing is fair in this world!)

As i've said before, i really like this season's cast way better than any other seasons. This has been the first time i took a first glance at the cast on the day it was revealed and told myself i'm going to love every team.. and i've never been quite wrong about my favourites. There's fit all-female teams that doesn't look like they will be the first to be eliminated (in fact none of them does).. now even Lyn and Karlyn does look like they will be the first to go, had it not been for the spoilers. There's an old couple (Brad and Victoria) who's fit and strong and definitely don't look like they will be racing like Don and MJ style. (If Meredith/Gretchen can go to F4 with so much luck), they can win the race with the same amount of luck! And there's only 2 dating couples, to spare us from the confusion of who's and who and loads of bickerings.. (TAR 6) and the all-male teams doesn't look like they will win for sure.. but neither do they look like they will be gone and eliminated for sure. (John/Scott) Okay, maybe Mel and Mike does look vulnarable to elimination, but i'm pretty sure Michael and Mark will be a strong team. And we have our resident married couple Linda and Steve, whom the producers obviously picked them for they are more sporty and well-travelled than David/Mary.. and if D/M can make the F6.. i think producers must have thought this team might make it further than them and impress the audience. And there's Margie and Luke.. the underdogs if they win.

Woah, what a long post.. but the conclusion is.. i think there's not a team to not to like this season.. there's a team for everyone to like and root for.. not like when i first saw the cast of TAR 13.. i was lost. :( :funny:

I agree.  My favorite seasons are Seasons 5 & 7 because a team I was rooting for won!  I guess Season 5 was my favorite, followed closely by Season 7.  If my two favorite teams make it to the finals (Tammy & Victor and Cara & Jamie) and one of them wins in Season 14, then this season might become my favorite one.  But that's still a big if.  Right now, I really like almost all the teams -- the two dating ones are probably my least favorites right now.

I think dating couples are okay. I think the amazing race is more of a family show so people naturally wanted a family team (including married couple) to win most of the time. (Toni/Dallas, Nicolas/Donald..)

Nick/Starr is just too datingish to let viewers now they are actually just brother/sister. :funny:

I didn't get that vibe from Nick/Starr nor Azaria/Hendekia. In fact, Azaria yelled at Hendekia quite a bit which is fitting for an older brother (having two younger sisters, I know of yelling at the younger siblings).

I did get that vibe from Blake/Paige.

Does anyone know how hard it's going to be to not make fun of the M & M teams?  Oh how about Luke (who I already want to win)?  Then we have Tammy's voice, oh who am I kidding you are all far game.

1.  Gut reaction, who's you final three? Tammy & Victor, Cara & Jamie, Amanda & Kris

2.  Who is going to laugh their ass off (since the diet sure isn't doing it) when none of the three all female fit teams end up winning (again....)? bummer

3.  Who is already tired of Tammy's voice?  Tammy if you are a shark at cards and have filmed a hot lesbian sex scene in "Bound" you get a pass on the voice, but thats it.  The mute button works wonders. Maybe that is why we get all the sub-titles.
4.  Okay how many more seasons do I have to wait for a young fit all male team to be cast as racers again? Two young fit all female winners + 1 season

5:  Which teams gonna be the first to hit the mat? Tammy & Victor(y)

I was hoping for a Preston and Jennifer elimination. Now that S/L arent out as we all thought I have to give them some respect. They came from behind

I think Steve was really the smart one. He knew they had no chance of climbing up again.. so he transported so many cheese at one go. I bet they would be one of the teams to complete the task first had they been on the first flight.

That was an AMAZING episode! Loved every aspect of it, as well as the new design! :jumpy:

The previews succeeded in fooling me for a change! I feel pretty stupid now, but at the time I didn't dare hope it would be Preston & Jennifer out first!

Yes, I certainly didn't see Preston & Jennifer's elimination coming!  What a very Dennis & Erika/Ari & Staella-type surprise!

And Steve really was impressive with the cheese.  I give him points for creativity.  He and Linda deserved to survive the first leg.

That is a great example of why I always hated the complaints about young fit men and the strength challenges.  They normally have ways if you are creative on the fly to do things easier.

Here it looked like you could have almost immediately (just after having it be attached to the wood) break it and let the damn things roll down the hill (which was the hardest most time consuming part). I am surprised more people (once they broke) didn't allow them to just roll the rest of the way.

I feel the same way, mswood. I said in my recap, I'm surprised more teams realizing the cheese rack would not work did not just roll the cheese wheels down the hill. Unless the teams were told not to, it was really the fastest way to finish the task.

While I would assume that the extra info said they had to start out with the cheese tied down, they clearly, if it came free, could let it roll down and simply carry it on the level ground to the deposit area.

Why so many tried to (after tit came apart) to put it back together just amazes me.

Who would have thought from the promos/previews that Linda/Steve would ultimatly save Jodi/Christie. I am really suprised that the flight attendents asked the wrong question at the train station, "Which train leaves first?" instead of the right question, "Which train arrives first?" At the mat, Jodi said she thought the teams going through "Italy" would get caught up in customs. Well just typical thoughts of a flight attendent that works for a domestic only carrier.

Jodi/Christie were at the cheese task last and got a chance to observe everyone else on the way up the hill. Jodi tells Christie there only chance is to do like Steve and take four down at once. What I find interesting is that Jodi/Christie are right by Jamie/Cara when Jodi tells that to Christie. As far as I can tell, Jamie/Cara only have two cheese wheels with them at that time, yet they end up at the bottom of the hill dragging 4 cheese wheels. I wonder if they didnt decide to go back and get two more cheese wheels while they were still high up on the hill?

Jodi/Christie lucked out again when their taxi driver caught up to Preston/Jennifer on the way to the pit stop. When Preston realized there was no bridge at that end of the parking lot and reversed directions, Jodi realized that they were between Preston/Jennifer and the mat and they could have a chance at not coming in last.

Puddin called the race for last place.......way to go Puddin

All in all, a very good episode with some good twists and turns.

I think I really struck out in predicting who'd go home first, but I'm not too upset.  Jennifer & Preston are gone, and I'm glad to see a bickering couple gone!
