Most Unmemorable Teams Of TAR
« on: October 15, 2012, 04:54:03 AM »
I was thinking about all the teams I couldn't remember even if I tried forever, and I wondered if this changed from person to person. The worst offenders for me were:

Cyndi & Russell (TAR2): The only thing I can remember from them is that: a) they were pastors who thought that God would help them on the race and b) They picked up a clue from a RB in Thailand.

Cindy & Russel (TAR4): Who were these people? I can only remember them stepping onto a pitstop mat and getting eliminated.

David & Jeff: The team thought of when it comes to unmemorableness. I can only remember them completing the FF in Brisbane and waiting in Sydney for the flight that made them a day late.

But the ultimate unmemorable award goes to:

Katie & Rachel: After I watched TAR17 for the first time, I went back and looked at all the teams, and I could not remember ANYTHING about them. Everything drew a blank. I rewatched the season about 2 weeks ago and now can only remember them in a car and running to the Pitstop.

I forgot half the teams from TAR 20 except for the Final 6. And that's bad cause it's just last season.

The most unmemorable teams are those who you don't even think they were ever on the show. :lol:

By now I can only pick up one example--the second team eliminated on China Rush S1. A lot of people have almost no memory about this Mexican team.

I ONLY remember their names. Nothing else. Same as Garret & Jessica.

I normally remember their names and know which place they got eliminated... Katie and Rachel are not that bad.. I know they got eliminated just because there was no bunching for the leg they were racing.

TAR 20 - Elliot & Andrew
TAR 19 - Ron & Bill
TAR 17 - Ron & Tony
TAR 16 - Monique & Shawne, Dana & Adrian
TAR 15 - Garrett & Jessica

These are some of the teams I bet most of you can't even remember post all-stars season. :lol:

Caitlin & Brittany are definitely going to become an unmemorable team.

The most unmemorable teams are the teams with no story regarding their elimination other than finishing last for being too slow or are pretty much ignored during their elimination episode.

TAR 2  - Hope/Norm
TAR 3  - Gina/Sylvia
TAR 5  - Bob/Joyce
TAR 10 - Vipul/Arti
TAR 12 - Kate/Pat ? (the married lesbians)
TAR 13 - Anthony/Stephanie, Ty/Aja
TAR 14 - Brad/Victoria
TAR 15 - Marci/Ron
TAR 16 - Monique/Shawn
TAR 17 - Andi/Jenna ? (real birth mother and adopted daughter)
TAR 19 - Ron/Bill, Jeremy/Sandy (the least memorable finalists in TAR history)
TAR 20 - the female border patrol agents (I forgot their names)
TAR 21 - Rob/Sheila

TAR 16 - Monique & Shawne

The only reason I remember them was because when I first joined RFF, David had a picture of them as his avatar. :lol:

Marianna & Julia - TAR12
Meredith & Maria - TAR6

Actually, put Jeremy and Sandy up this list. Gawd, I can't remember them except that they won the penultimate leg in TAR 19.

I just started watching season 16 again, and I was all "...woah! it is like watching a whole new season" because a lot of the teams were so invisible the first time!

Season 16 wasn't that bad. The final 8 teams were at least memorable. :lol: Or maybe because that was the season they visited Singapore so I particularly remembered the final 5 teams...

And that's my point. Anthony and Stephanie were the second team eliminated from TAR13

Screentime/editing NOT personality is what makes a team memorable/unmemorable imo...

And I am going to disagree majorly with Jessica and Garrett being on here....having the pleasure of having gotten to know them post race, I think had they survived further they would have been hard to beat...both are very well travelled, fluent in several languages, smart, athletic and very fun...and charming!! Y'all would have LOVED them.  :'(
