TAR7: Meredith Smith & Gretchen Smith - Married/Retired
« on: December 19, 2009, 12:24:53 AM »
Okay, since we're in the off-season, and spoilers seem slim, I thought I'd create a little diversion for us. Let's discuss the teams from a past season who don't have threads. How about TAR 7?



MEREDITH & GRETCHEN
Married / Retired


Meredith & Gretchen are a husband/wife team from Easton, Maryland. Meredith is a retired executive and Gretchen is a retired nurse/flight attendant. Both found love late in their lives, and they are spending every moment making up for lost time. Their inspiration for participating in the Race is strictly for the adventure and the challenge of traveling around the world.

Meredith is a retired executive who spends his time fishing, biking, playing golf and teaching swimming. Father of three sons, Meredith is an avid swimmer who holds seven National Masters Swimming Championship titles. Meredith describes himself as competitive, articulate and compassionate.

Gretchen is a retired flight attendant and registered nurse. Mother of two, Gretchen spends most of her time cooking, biking, gardening and golfing. Gretchen describes herself as outgoing, reliable and kind, and she admits to being quite loud, particularly when she’s upset.

Both are big fans of the show, and while watching one evening, they said to each other, “We could do that. Let’s try.”

The Luckiest team ever. After Gretchen getting her "face-lift" and Meredith breaking his foot, they managed a lucky 4th. I think they were the last to be on the "I totally loved the 4th placers" trend.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I also loved the Godlewskis, Joseph & Monica, Dustin & Kandice, Oswald & Danny, Nathan & Jennifer and Kisha & Jen so the trend still somewhat continues for me. :funny:
I'm baaaaaack!

I'm just so happy they went as far as they did! It would have shocked me a lot more if I had watched the season as it aired!

the fourth place trend didn't start for me until AFTER All-Stars...

my favorites consistently came in 5th or 6th in early seasons

this is one of the only early seasons where that didn't happen
