I watched a few episodes of TAR 15, but when Maria and Tiffany got eliminated I stopped watching.  :lol:

But...they make the show so boring and predictable. I don't like seeing teams 1st ever single leg, I wan't to see a mix up and I want to drama!

I disagree with your point of it being predictable. There was only one leg that they won where it was obvious they'd get first, and that was the first Thailand leg.

That's hardly their fault, is it?

If teams had read their clues and didn't make simple mistakes, Andy & Tommy would only have two first places under their belt right now. The main reason they get all this hate is because they are a strong M/M team who just so happen to be lucky when it comes to finishing first. I wish people would look past that and view them as a fun team who are actually working together and enjoying the places they visit. Kind of like Bill & Cathi minus the age and relationship.

They are my absolute favorite team this year!!!  I love that they are committed Christians, that they maintain a positive attitude regardless of the circumstances, and that they try their best to win every leg.   It is certainly not their fault that others have been making critical mistakes that cost them first place.  They kind of remind me of Jet and Cord in that way, just really great people with really great attitudes! 

Hoping for an Andy & Tommy first place win!!!

They're really a good team... but they're also a good team to "hate" with all the likable teams this season... :snicker: Stop winning first places.. it makes the show boring. Like you know they will never be eliminated... :meow:

Yeah but the passed Ernie and Cindy!

I like them as people, and I like them as racers. But it is my strong strong opinion that famous people should not be on the Amazing Race! To me, the Amazing Race is for the average person who couldn't do this. As much as I like Andy and Tommy (Olympic Snowboarders), The globetrotters (Herb and Nate), and Amani and Marcus (Ex-NFL) - I can't and won't ever cheer for them to win. They've all traveled before to other countries. I want the Amazing Race experience to get to other people!!

Yes, I agree. I would extend your argument especially to former Big Brother and Survivor contestants. It is particularly difficult for regular folks to compete against anyone with worldwide instant face recognition, as the locals try to help them preferentially.

The only thing that annoys me about these two is their silly 'theme tune'.

Snowboarders :jam: They are awesome! I am glad that they have won so many legs, I wish I had a new Mustang!

They are my favorite team remaining, I love how they are so positive and so good at tasks and navigation. The fact that they have never gotten lost has helped them win a lot of legs. Because of that they may even be stronger competitors than the cowboys who I have always considered the strongest team ever.

Andy and Tommy do have the best navigational skills of any team in AR19 and should be commended for that. However, will they survive Panama?

Well I don't hate them as such, it's just they're not as entertaining as the other teams and they're constant domination is making it predictable and kinda boring. Hat's off to them for being good racers, though.

I think it's all too simple. We have those who consider any Male/Male team anathema. I could name names of such RFF members but I won't. The fact that they are Olympic athletes also causes some to not want them to win because they have an unfair advantage.

I like Andy/Tommy because they have a loose, breezy style and are superior at navigation, which I consider the key Amazing Race skill.  If they make the F3 I expect they have the highest probability of the 3 teams to win it.

I agree, people hate them because their a strong M/M team.

Just look at the latest "who will be eliminated next" poll. Two people are already jumping on the band wagon that they must go next because the other teams are more likable.

So it's not the same thing with those who say that Ernie & Cindy will be eliminated next??? ???

I don't see them as the invincible team. They're a team focused in enjoying every second of the race, not making any mistakes, knowing what to do, and trying to be kind to locals so as to get further, and that's a kind of strategy I think I'd follow if I was in the race, really. I think that's it, to race because of the race itself.

Sure it is, but compare their 4 to Andy & Tommy's 12 (at last check). I'm willing to bet at least 6 of those were based on liking them the least.
