Bopper: Even though we didn't win the Race, we still changed our county, heart-wise,

Also to think you can change a country just by being on the race I really don't think is very realistic.  It's making too big a claim.  Most people will be happy to see them as individuals profit from being on it, but that's it.  And don't think I am unsympathetic to Bopper's daughter, I have asthma myself and have suffered over the last decade and still do.  People tend to be ignorant and arrogant to you over it, even doctors.  They just give you an inhaler and tell you to go away however bad your condition is.  Nothing on an entertainment show will change anything in any country.

He said "county", not "country". Other than that, I don't really care if you like them or not.

I'm not sure you even change a county by being on this program really.  Maybe they can get more attention on their fight against the people who have polluted the environment in their locality.  Certainly they will get help individually (already have) and I think people will be more interested in them as individuals than on larger issues, as that's what I think the show is really about. 
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.

Can someone upload the video so Canadians can watch it?  :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah:

I have a link where u can watch it

Thanks for the link! I can't watch this show here so it was interesting to see!  :)
Sorry to hear about Mark losing his job though.  :(

Glad they got a personal check out if it good for them.  :tup:
I do think that 'because you were so entertaining' was a little bit offensive to say to them, because sure they were joking around a bit but mostly pretty serious too. But I guess it wasn't intended badly, and glad to hear they got something out of the race except for the experience.

Think they'll be back on the next AllStars TAR in a few years time, probably.  :)

They were alright but I'm not sure why they got another word at the end.

Gary & Mallory had a final word at the end of TAR17, and then they were on Unfinished Business. It's possible that the producers/editors realized that Bopper & Mark were going to be a popular team with the audience or that they might be invited back for the next returning racers season, but this is all speculation, obviously.

Mark and Bopper were brought to NY to film a new Life of Pi promo!

I missed this Life of Pi promo because I went to the bathroom right before it cut to commercials.  :groan: Why does everything good happen when I go to the restroom?  :duno:

I'm loving Bopper's newly growing hair!  :hearts:
