Out of the winning teams, which ones were you glad that they won and which were you upset about?

Not sure I have been thrilled by any, but I'm probably more accepting of (whether they were my favourites that season or not):

Flo Pesenti &
Zach Behr

TK Erwin &
Rachel Rosales

Ernie Halvorsen &
Cindy Chiang

Most disliked from a season I finished watching:
Dan &
Jordan Pious
(and they never built that tower of glasses properly)
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.

I normally think all the teams who win deserve it in the end, even if I do not like the team.

However there is one team in particular who did not deserve the win at all, having saved by two NELs due to sheer luck. They should have been eliminated but ended up winning??

That season was also the worst season I've ever watched IMO, really bad teams and unexciting finishes with the two all male teams dominating throughout.
We are all misfits living in a world on fire.

I think the only team I really had a problem with was Reichen and Chip.  Not sure why, but something about them just didn't sit right with me.

Eric & Danielle from Season 11, they shouldn't have been casted at all since they were not even really a couple.

Nat & Kat. I think they showed outstanding performance throughout the race. And I love Nat's subtle bubbly personality. She's such a sweetheart.

They were alright but I wanted Brook and Claire to win.  And I felt a bit manipulated when the producers kept pushing the diabetes angle towards the end.

Among the winners:
Rob and Brennan (I was a minority among the early fan base.....until they won. Made me look like a prophet.)
Reichen and Chip. Regardless of Reichen's post TAR career choices, they were a good team, and Chip excelled in the airports and travel agencies, and used it to their advantage in their season over and over again.
The Linz family - Despite some of the flaws of FE, the casting of the teams that did well was not one of the flaws. The Linz were a team that was likeable and easy on the eyes and ears -- and their helping their parents with the prize money was classy.
Tyler-James - A very likeable team that were consistently good throughout their season.
Eric-Danielle - Only because Eric was part of the best performing team in TAR history, and who should have been teamed with Jeremy in All-Stars. He's good enough to come in first even without his original partner. Which was why I was happy about it.
Rachel-TK
Nick-Starr
Ernie-Cindy
Rachel-Dave

I was rooting for either of those teams. So I'm very happy which ever team won.

Happy:
BJ & Tyler - my all-time favorite team, wanted them to win the whole season
Nat & Kat - perfect female team to win first time

Neutral:
Flo & Zach - favorites in final but others could have won too
Reichen & Chip - Kelly & Jon were my favorites but Reichen & Chip were my other favorites
Chip & Kim - boring, Colin & Christie should have won
Linz family - I just hoped that Weavers don't win
Tyler & James - Dustin & Kandice :'( but the guys were best choice in the final
TK & Rachel - I liked them, but Ron & Christina were good too
Nick & Starr - best choice of the finalists
Tammy & Victor - strong team and they deserved their victory
Dan & Jordan - my favorites of the finalists but cowboys deserved it too
Kisha & Jen - Gary & Mallory and Zev & Justin :'( rather the girls than the Globetrotters
Rachel & Dave - Not my favorite team but better choice than Brenchel or Art & JJ

Unhappy:
Rob & Brennan - Frank & Margarita deserved the victory!
Chris & Alex - Tara & Will fan here!
Freddy & Kendra - Kris & Jon, please!
Uchenna & Joyce - Rob & Amber!!!
Eric & Danielle - Dustin & Kandice!!!!!!!!!!!!
Meghan & Cheyne - Brian & Ericka!

Happy:
Nat and Kat -> You could switch them with Brooke and Claire and I'd still be happy. Well earned win and they were very likeable.

Content:
Chip and Kim -> Underdog story, I don't think they deserved it more than Colin and Christie but I prefered these two over the rest of the F3.
Uchenna and Joyce -> Romber probably deserved it more, but I disliked Romber and Ron and Kelly, so this was perfect
Linz Family -> As long as the Weaver family didn't win, I was okay with it. Would have prefered the Bransens though, but I still like the Linzs.
Tyler and James -> Seemed nice enough, I don't normally like 'alpha-male' teams, but these two are certainly the most enjoyable of the bunch.
Nick and Starr -> I liked them from the beginning, but they were always second to Toni and Dallas for me that season.
Flo and Zach -> Would have prefered the others, but I didn't hate anyone from this season, so it was all good in the end.

Neutral:
Meghan and Cheyne -> Anyone else would have been a disapointment, they earned the win, though I didn't care for them.
Rob and Brennan -> Interchangable with Frank and Margarita, either would have the same neutral effect on me.
Rachel and Dave -> Not their biggest fan, but a heck of a lot better than Brenchal or Art and JJ.
TK and Rachel -> Don't know much about them, but they seemed decent. (TAR12 is the only season I have yet to see in full)
Dan and Jordan -> They seemed nice, but Jet and Cord deserved it so much more.
Tammy and Victor -> Would have been happy with anyone in the F3, they were just my last choice.

Didn't Care for:
Kisha and Jen -> Didn't like them in TAR14, but I remained neutral to them throughout TAR18. I still think the other teams in the F4 deserved it more though, but I'd rather them win over the Globetrotters
Ernie and Cindy -> I liked them in the beginning, but that changed. I think they earned their win though, deserved it more than Jermey and Sandy and Amani and Marcus.
Eric and Danielle -> I still don't think Danielle should have been brought back, and I don't care for these two in general. Gotta hand it to them though for making up 12 hours.
Chris and Alex -> The whole F3 was 'meh' to me in TAR2.
Freddy and Kendra -> I would have much rather seen Kris and Jon win...

Unhappy:
Reichen and Chip -> Something about them I didn't like. Kelly and Jon would have been much better, or even David and Jeff.
BJ and Tyler -> Liked them through Russia, but after that they went downhill fast. They became annoying and overwhelming, one of the major reasons why I don't like TAR9.
