I loved them. But their comments about the Thai temple really turned me off. Starting from that episode, I kinda despised them. :|

Yeah, when they said that I lost all respect for them. Hopefully they'll do a Zev and Justin and come 4th.

Wow, I didn't find it that serious. :ascared They sounded like they were trying to say they didn't think it was creepy or weird.

I thought it was kind of an odd thing to insert anyway, it sounded like the producers led them down that path for some reason.

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:

GO JOAB, BE ACCURATE! :snicker: :neener: :lol3:

Probably won't happen.. but always worth a try!

Sorry...I like them. I like their spirit and their kindness to everyone they meet and their obvious enjoyment of every single day.

I did not take their comments at the Spirit Houses amiss, although I liked how Jennifer replied much better. But to my ear, it was a choppy heavily edited sound bite, and we know that can change almost anything around. I think that HOW they have raced and the respect they have shown each other and every single person they have met along the way says far more than that one sound bite.

Well said peach <3 I love the teams that enjoy the world and the people but also have a drive to win and do well on the tasks. Sort of a combo of the cowboys and the Chos :lol: Andy and Tommy have a similar attitude to Gary and Mallory which I love.
It still seems like production was trying to stir up a controversy about them in that episode. The way they threw in those unusual scenes was almost like they knew people wouldn't like it. Heavily editing some quotes to make a story is unseemly imo.

I like how they won 3 legs because the real first placers made a mistake or penalty.  :lol:
I love them but I hope they stop winning legs already. Save it for the final leg guys  :hearts:

These guys are getting the cowboy "nice guy" edit, and when they are eliminated everyone on facebook will go nuts.

These two remind me too much of the Cowboys.
I have a feeling next leg it will be a Cowboy farewell as well  :<3

People shouldn't expect them to just give a win away to Ernie and Cindy just because they wanted them to. What if that footrace had been a footrace for elimination? Or a million dollars? Uh uh. If Ernie and Cindy wanted to win the leg, they shouldn't have stood around so long wasting time after using their Express Pass.

The snowboarders may be eliminated next leg because of this, so I'm prepared for that. But I think people that hate this team are missing out on a lot. Don't hate them just because they're an all male team who dominates or just because their religious affiliation may offend you. They are good at tasks, friendly to everyone, and don't fight with each other or other teams. They practice what they preach. IMO, there's no real reason to hate them.

Rant over.

I couldn't agree more Prophet. I think they're genuine, likeable, courteous, respectful and fun. I agree that they've probably been given a favourable edit but to be even considered for a good edit, you have to be good people to start with. I definitely think they'll become the new cowboys in terms of fan popularity, but that's not going to make me feel guilty about rooting for them!

Definitely, I've NEVER liked any M/M team (well, I liked Derek & Drew since I started watching TAR 3 when the episode 9 was broadcast in my country, not much to choose from).

This team is definitely, not only the best M/M team (IMHO) ever in the race, but one of the best teams overall. They're doing what should be done in this TV programme. I recall it is called The Amazing RACE, and, even though they enjoy each of the tasks they do (andthey rock them too), they always keep on racing with a positive message: "Treating other people the best you can will give you the best result", they never have any harsh words to anybody (they even crashed in Leg 05 with the School thing) but didn't give up nor say bad things to the teacher. They're respectful, they're competitive, they're kind... they're racers, and above all, they're excellent people.

In case I'd race against them, I'd really be awestruck, and I really think that U-Turning them would not be successful.

I don't get the M/M hatred. When I like a team, it's irrespective of their gender. I like these guys, just as I liked Mel/Mike, Nat/Kat, Tyler/James, Lauren/Duke, BQs, BJ/Tyler, Eric/Jeremy, Don/Nick, Ron/Christina, TK/Rachel, the Chas, Ken/Gerrard,...you get the idea. These guys seemed fun & friendly to locals, plus i hate infighting (although given the stressful situations, it's inevitable).

What I meant is that I don't really get an instant love for any M/M team. I think that teams with a girl on it are more lovely, :lol3: IDK why, but I never liked M/M teams, :duno:  and this one's the best, :lol:
