Hey folks,

haven't posted in quite a while, but I felt rather strongly about this. I know Meghan and Joey had their share of supporters (including me) but I was quite surprised and rather dumbfounded by the many negative comments and (I almost want to say) hatred that they received. I actually expected not to like them, but immediately had to revise my opinion and was very fond of them by episode 3. Of course, I wasn't there personally, so don't know what might have happened off camera, but from what I saw on the race and also during their recaps (which I highly recommend) they came over as very pleasant and fun people. Just my two cents ...

They seem like really nice people in real life, but on the show, I really didn't like their alliance and Joey's fake high-pitched voice.

I really think most of the audience liked them, but obviously those who shout loudest get to think they are the main opinion on the internet, and some of it was obviously prejudiced. 
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.

The people on Facebook sure don't like Max & Katie either.

Then again, they don't watch the Behind the Scenes Clips, so they hardly get an accurate view of what the teams are really like. :res:

I believe some people disliked Meghan & Joey because they have a different mentality than everyone else, they're the first "hipster"-type of team on the race in the same way Kent & Vyxsin were the first team of flamboyant scenesters. Joey's over-the-topness might some people (usually over 25-ish) the wrong way, but they resonate pretty well with the younger generation (at least in the US).
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I got used to it in the end.  :lol3: They are just a fun loving team and I grew to adore it eventually. So much better to watch a positive team than the moms, who were like nothing but competitive and slightly mean/evil towards the end.

True. Joey and Meghan were somewhat childish, but at least they weren't acting all cutthroat and bickery.

I am way way over 25 and I found them enjoyable, occasionally annoying, to watch.
 I actually thought the hockey guys were kind of boring.

They really worked together very well, they didn't argue, did everything correctly, I don't know why they shouldn't be nominated for this category :)

I do. They were annoying. VERY annoying. They whined constantly. They were friends with the wrong people (mean moms and possible dominants).  Not to mention that Joey had a terrible fashion sense. I mean, leggings? Seriously? Sorry, but they just don't deserve that title.

what does fashion sense have to with dynamic duo? :lol: And I didn't ever hear them whining, except when Joey had to touch a scorpion, so that means constantly? Btw Max&Katie weren't mean and the moms were mean? Just look the insider videos and rewatch all the episodes, and notice how Max&Katie blathered about Joey&Meghan almost all the time.

I'm sorry, how in the world are Mona and Beth mean? They were a little bit Under the Radar, but they weren't mean at all. And plus, fashion sense does not determine your racing ability, and their "whining" is mainly Joey being all excited.

1) The fashion sense thing was just a minor quibble of mine.  It wasn't meant to be taken as a major point.
2) Ok. Maybe the moms weren't mean, but they were definitely overly competitive and somewhat negative. Also, you're talking to a Maxie fan here. :luvya: To be honest, no one on the race liked Joey and Megan besides the derbies.
3) By now, I pretty much figured out you're a big fan. You were probably oblivious to their whining, but I heard it all. They whined about Max when he said J&J's decision was quite stupid, they whined about being U-turned (anyone would, though), they whined about not being ahead when they thought so ect.   

Anyway I'm done with this debate. My point was to address the main reasons I, and frankly other non-Joey and Megan fans, don't like them. Nuff said. :lol:
