It's not them I don't like David & Connor as people, it's the fact that their whole ordeal is rammed down my throat for a full 10 minutes every episode, for four straight legs. I also kinda don't like how they're portrayed to be so inspirational and defy-all-the-odds people when they're clearly just as competent as everyone else - they've won two legs with a moon boot for god sake. It's not like they're struggling or anything :res: Nice people, I get it. But their edit is extremely irritating.

I seriously cannot wait until they're booted so I can actually get to know the other teams.

Joab is quite right on this. The second most bonehead move of AR22 has been David and Connor not waiting out the fishing expedition a little longer. That pond was stocked so that you could hardly miss catching a trout. If they had continued doing it and not used their Express Pass then they still would almost for sure have caught a trout and finished first in that episode. Then they could have extended their stay in AR22 by one more episode by and gotten one more prize once they did use it to skip a ROADBLOCK.

I don't even think the luxury of winning two legs is more important than getting further in this race. Since the problem now is Dave's leg can't bring them further any longer, why not only use it at the most crucial point which will ensure their survival? I mean, it's great that they have two leg wins, a trip to KL (?) and $10,000 in their pockets, but I would rather want to stay as long as I can in the race than to waste it just so that I can win a leg.. and get the best flight out so that I have a chance of winning the next too.

Now if they have to quit one task on the next leg due to Dave's inability to compete, they only have themselves to blame for not looking at the big picture.

Then seeing how he raced to the pitstop just so he can win the leg and injured himself (which is dumb), using the Express Pass when they don't really need it (which is also dumb) and then cheating at last leg's Roadblock (which is sly), my respect and liking for this team is 0% right now.

I blame CBS for their story edit, but I just have no liking for this team. Mug put it best, if you are selling me a sob story of these two people, then they really better be of the best righteous character and attitude. :res:

Them cornering Jessica and John for the EP was pretty  :res: :groan: too. I know there's a pact going on but if Jessica and John doesn't give it to you, don't whine. You didn't even come in SECOND place for Leg 1. :res:

So what? They wanted the Express Pass because it plays a helpful tool for skipping a task.

Initially I believed that they ended up wasting the Pass in Leg 3, but they really only did that because they were thinking of the fact that they wouldn't last much longer with the injury.. so why not just win the leg and get a prize before possibly going home?

Anthony & Bates came in 2nd place in Leg 1.. so it doesn't mean that Jessica & John had to give it to them? They weren't even part of the pact, that's why Dave & Connor were so concerned about the Pass because they were the second team of the pact to arrive.

Just because they didn't come in second place doesn't mean that they still couldn't get it.
