Hi Ernie and Cindy!  :hello2:

Talking about Indonesian cab driver....How's your cab driver when you were in Indonesia? Did you guys suffered the same problem (lost and no direction)? Or any other teams in your season did? :js:
Anyway I'm from Indonesia and I'd love to see you guys come to Indonesia again!  :hearts:

How did you all decide which Detours to do based on the info at hand? What would lead you to do one over the other?

Hello Indonesia!

We had an awesome cab driver in Indonesia! For Leg 2 when we were in Yogyakarta, Heru met us at the train station, then came back to pick us up at 7am in the morning to take us to the cave, Goa Jablong. We only got lost a little when we were following Marcus & Amani's taxi and Bill & Cathi beat us to the cave, but otherwise, he was right on track with everywhere we needed to go. He was a total rock star and while we were off doing a task, he would look up where the next location was and call all of his friends to find out where to go.

Our driver on Leg 3 at Borobudur our taxi driver was also good - a little more quiet and didn't "fist pump" with us, but he got us everywhere we needed to go and was very kind to wait for us while Ernie counted the Buddhas.  We were definitely lucky!

We'd love to come back to Indonesia. where should we visit? What are the best places for us to see?

You could kind of tell what was coming, and what type of task it might be.  There were a couple of times where Ernie probably should have taken the task (the caving) but he had broken his tibia, fractured vertically and just had screws put in, so we thought it would be better for Cindy to go into the cave. It might have been better for Cindy to do the dancing, but Ernie did such a great job at it anyway.

We had prepared so much prior to the race that we knew each other's strengths. If we could decipher the clue, we would know immediately who should do the roadblock.

How did you all decide which Detours to do based on the info at hand? What would lead you to do one over the other?

Based solely on what we have seen in the first two eps....do you have a team or two that seem to "have it together"??  One that seems to have the potential to deal with all the challenges and the stress and yet keep a clear mind??

Based only on what we have seen so far here are the teams we think are strong:
Trey & Lexi are developing a system of what's working for them. They seem to be having fun and know how to work together. Plus, they're fit, young and agile. The only thing that they'll have to learn to overcome quickly is traveling abroad. We heard this was their first time out of the US!

Ryan & Abbie seem strong as well. They have great chemistry together and are able to work well with each other. They have a little more street smarts and have life experiences. Their challenge is that they might be a little too aggressive and I can see some teams maybe ganging up on them later on.

Who do you think has the right combo to win this season?

Glad to hear that! I think compared to your season, Yogyakartans taxi driver are better than Surabayans taxi driver..:lol: Just my opinion ;D Anyway I read somewhere that mentioned Ethan and Jenna were having a bad time in Leg 2 because of their taxi driver were really slow and it leads them to their elimination. Is that true? :js:

Anyway, if Im not mistaken, you guys lost your train ticket from Hamburg to Brussels, right? How did that happen? And how did you guys handle it?

There a lot of place to visit here in Indonesia. If you like to go island hopping, I would suggest you to go to Komodo Island and Raja Ampat. Komodo Island is located in East Nusa Tenggara Province and Raja Ampat located in West Papua. they have beautiful beaches! Plus you can meet the giant lizard, Komodo, in Komodo Island. And if you like to go to mountanious area, you can go to Mount Bromo, in Malang-East Java (TAR 21 should've visited there because it's close from Surabaya and had a really great view!) #justsayin :lol:

I personally like Twinnies, Trey/Lexi, Abbie/Ryan and Chippendales. I think they have what it take to win the race...or at least to go further in this season. :tup:

Ethan and Jenna had some trouble with the taxi, yes, that's true.

But the real issue in that leg was that we all missed the sign to donate all of our remaining money to the orphanage.  8 of 11 teams missed this! It was such a debacle at the Pit Stop.  If E&J had read the sign and gave all of their money, they would have been in 4th place.

As for the lost ticket, it was the most stressful time for Cindy. We dropped the ticket in the office when they wouldn't help us get on a better train. We didn't realize it until a few hours later when the office was closed and we couldn't get back in to find our ticket. Then, to re-purchase the ticket was too much money which we didn't have. Cindy was begging for money from the Germans to help raise some funds. In the end, our first train to Amsterdam (where there was a transfer) was almost 2 hrs late and the entire group missed the connecting train. Therefore, per the rules, we were allowed to purchase new tickets for Amsterdam-Brussels.  We weren't stow-aways, we were allowed to purchase new tickets!  Everything worked out in our favor!

I am always SO thankful that everyone has been kept so safe in TAR! That is a huge credit to the organization and the security there.... And so thankful that we have avoided severe injuries!!

Sounds like maybe we need to be thankful for all your wire and screws for holding you together!! :kuss:

I must say I'm agree with you about them.  I think that Trey and Lexi are smart enough to quickly learn what's right and wrong about travelling.  Abbie & Ryan seems to be a strong team, well balanced, even with the aggressiveness issues you emphasize.  And I would like to see more of the Chips and the Beekmans, they started slow paced, but I think they're going to improve with the pressure of the race.

Yes! We keep in contact with all of the other teams in our season. We all watched the finale together, and many of them made it to our wedding. We keep in touch most with Justin, Jennifer, Ron & Bill and the Twins. Ernie just went to Utah with Andy and Cindy visited Tommy in Colorado when she was there for work.  We also talk to Marcus & Amani when they have time between running their kids to all their activities!  Bill & Cathi sent us a sweet card for our wedding, Sandy is coming to Chicago in late November... so yes, we all keep in touch :) like one little family!

we also hope they show Brittany & Cait more... and more Twinnies!!!  But yes, Beekmans would be interesting so I hope they get more airtime. Also, Chippendales seem funny but we need more back story on them!

Yes, leg 2 pit stop was a chaos! I can really feel how all teams are such in a rush and didn't read the additional info. It was a really unexpected moment for me.

Wow you guys were very lucky then!  :hearts:

Aaaaaaahhhh! I caught you guys this time! :yess:
Thanks for posting here, Ernie/Cindy! I was rooting for y'all so hard and am really glad y'all won season 19! Also congrats on getting married! Hope everything's going well with you two!

Some questions:
1) TAR 21 related. What do y'all think of the Beekman boys very UTR (under the radar) edit this season, well so far anyway? They were shown in the season preview (well Brent was) celebrating after the ice detour, but in last night's episode they were barely shown doing the detour... and they had some random comments in the RB.

2) Personal, to Cindy. I think most people here have seen your McDonald's commercial. Was it a good experience? And would you mind telling us how you got the gig?

Now let me catch up to your initial responses (hope my questions weren't redundant... :-[)!

Who do you think has the right combo to win this season?

I like the NaNagoddesses and Longhorns. So glad they got 1st and 2nd this leg. The NaNas are pretty consistent so far (finishing in the top 5 both legs), whilst the Longhorns only finished in the bottom last leg because they were in a later flight.

I also like the Beekmans because: in leg 1 they were in the second flight but still managed to finish 7th (and to add to that, they were shown in last through the two roadblocks but got extremely lucky with the abacus lady!). While in this leg they were mysteriously fifth after probably finishing probably 8th in the roadblock. They need a better edit.

Ryan/Abbie seems like a good team but Ryan just grates on me the wrong way. I didn't watch him in the Apprentice: Martha Stewart but I guess it seems he's always been that way? :duno:

Rob/Kelly are hilar.
