Okay. They do not give me good vibe. Gives me a boring feel and erm... BJ and Tyler feel.

I do not want for them to make it far but I feel they will. (I don't know?)

I'm going to pray they don't make the Final 6..

I'm usually right about first hand impression whether I'm going to like a team or not.. and this is the only team thus far that I feel "obligated" to dislike.

OOOOOOPS! :lol: Hopefully my opinions of them changes! :hearts:

They seem like they could be an interesting team; it's too early to tell for me.

The vibe I'm getting from them is that they get dressed in the dark.

Agree with Joab...definitely getting a BJ/Tyler vibe, which does not mean good news  :(

You hit the nail on the head.

Without looking to the video, hated them. But since I watched it, kinda makes me feel that there is something interesting to them. <3

So you can see the video? Some other non-Americans couldn't.

Are you outside the U.S? If so, I would suggest searching YouTube for them.

I could see them and I'm outside the US.  :duno:

Anyway, I think this team will end up as my least favourites. They just don't seem too interesting.  :umn:

Dumb jocks. They should be able to do the physical challenges, but will be stumped by any challenge that requires brain power.

They were the first team done with the word puzzle task at the very beginning.

It looked like they were randomly selecting umbrellas and hoping that they would find the right one - not figuring out the word puzzle. I'll have to watch it again.

Yeah, actually all the teams were doing that. I found it odd too, I guess it's wasn't what I was expecting.

Teams had to open the umbrellas in order to see the letters on them.  The correct umbrellas were randomly placed, so there really wasn't an organized way to do it.

Later teams had the advantage of knowing they had to find the two vowels as part of it, so that saved the trouble of taking every umbrella to Phil.

I believe some of the teams, like the snowboarders actually figured out what they had to find (Tai-) and were saving themselves time and too many trips to Phil. So actually knowing the answer did come into the play for some of the teams.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? Besides winning… the experience, traveling the world, competing, and getting to know the other teams.
