kevint2010,


It is fine for you to root for Mark and Bopper, but do you have to do it Rachel and David's thread? You should know how inappropriate that it. Please change your post here into nvm or anything equivalent and place the deleted post into the Mark and Bopper thread where it belongs.

kevint2010,


It is fine for you to root for Mark and Bopper, but do you have to do it Rachel and David's thread? You should know how inappropriate that it. Please change your post here into nvm or anything equivalent and place the deleted post into the Mark and Bopper thread where it belongs.

firstly, while I am rooting for Mark and Bopper, I didn't write anything that roots for them in this thread. The "Mark and Bopper for the win!" is a underquote that appears in every single one of my posts. Everyone on this site can have one, so don't tell me off for it. My post is about Dave and Rachel, not Mark and Bopper.

Secondly, this is a dave and rachel thread, but how in the world is this a "root" thread? the titles are just the team's name and descriptions. Not "hate" or "love", which is why people have posted "negative" comments about some teams in their thread. how is this "inappropriate"? Where do you want me to put this post? in "TAR Australia 2- Live Sightings!"?

Thirdly, I'm don't even dislike Dave and Rachel. I really like Rachel and while Dave's overcompetitiveness and hardheadness is annoying, I don't dislike him at all. I'm just pointing out his overcompetitiveness.

I'm sorry if you're unhappy with me voicing my opinions, but we can all get along, can't we?  :ghug:

Kevin:

Yes we can and I apologize. I did not distinguish between your legitimate comments on Rachel and David and the tagline on Mark and Bopper. Any tagline is allowed anywhere, so the only person who did something wrong was me in criticizing you.

Their bickering seems to have a bitter undercurrent to it which makes it less entertaining to me than some of the other couples who can just seem silly and funny.
Reality Fan Forum, where 'enthusiasm' is completely redefined as not meaning having an interest in and having something to say but as having to be completely positive even about aspects of something you disagree on.  So both the fan and forum (discussion) aspects are prescribed/limited.

They're probably less used to being on television than people who have nothing to do besides go on reality shows. :)

Prophet,

I think Brendon and Rachel and Vanessa and Ralph are giving Rachel and David pretty good competition for the "bitterest team" trophy.

Definitely not in the "most mature" category though :lol:

With the BB Rachel and Vanessa couples though there seems to be some affection and although they argue it never seems to last.  But with Dave and Rachel all I see is tension.  Of course it might just be a bad edit, but it doesn't really endear them to me.  The women are the stronger characters in all these groups it seems to me.

Thanks for the welcome.  I think going on reality tv shows sounds like quite a fun way to spend your time, so I don't begudge the likes of BB Rachel that.  :)

I can sense Dave is a serious, smart, always focused man. He's kind of a perfectionist. I wonder how Rachel keeps up with him. He's too stern. I don't like stern people. :lol

She keeps up with him by not letting his uptight nature get to her. I think she's good for him. :lol: :tup:

I can relate to Dave because I get uptight very easily as well. :-[

They worked well together once again at the FF. I think their edit is improving. ;D I just hope the car curse doesn't come into play. :(

Quite impressed that Dave actually knew where Azerbaijan was located, unlike almost everyone else. :tup:

Well he was stationed in Iraq for quite a while wasn't he??
So it would make sense he knows this area better than others I think.  :)

Aussie,

Thank you for increasing my already considerable vocabulary. I had no clue what an axolotl is until you forced me to look it up. I am not going to spoil the suspense for others, who should look it up themselves if they want to know.

Have any of you all ever done a long photoshoot?

 Their cheeks were probably quivering from the strain of smiling so long! :groan:

This team is making me find a greater appreciation for Ernie and Cindy, at least they lasted until leg 7 Malawi II before they became win obsessed and for good reason. E&C also maintained their express pass for longer and never used it out of necessity, not even out of perceived necessity, in fact I find Dave and Rachel's use to be one of the worst so far.
To their credit; however, I was impressed by Dave's knowledge of geography, specifically concerning Azerbaijan (he had me beat on that one and I'm a self confessed geography nerd :-[ ) and I found it hilarious when he was trying to convince Rachel that they should try the helicopter fast forward.

When the plane is landing,

Rachel: "Uh oh! Natives!"

don't know if that's funny or offensive.

Oh well, still way better than the "breeding" comment from you-know-who from season 6

I don't like them at all. I prefer ART & JJ for sure, even though I'm tired of them winning each leg.

I just pray for the Kentucky, BB and Cops to be in the Final, please!

My love meter for this team is decreasing each leg. I'm pretty sure that my love meter will reach zero if they make it far :(
