TAR 24: Cord McCoy & Jet McCoy (TAR 16+18) "Cowboys"
« on: January 27, 2014, 10:17:29 AM »
Cord McCoy and Jet McCoy

     
   


Name: Cord McCoy
Age: 33
Hometown: Tupelo, Okla.
Previous Seasons: Seasons 16 & 18
Current occupation: Cowboy
Describe what you do: I raise bucking bulls and riding horses, and work on the ranch with my wife, Sara.
Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Losing, lol!
Most memorable moment from your first Race: Oh wow, to see the world!
Favorite place you visited on your first season: Every place we went made its own memories. The beautiful places and super nice people around the world; they make a cowboy feel right at home.
Why do you want to run the Race again? I made amazing memories the first time, and another chance at $1 million.
How have you changed since the last time you competed? I have retired from professional bull riding.
What are you passionate about? God, family, friends and being a cowboy.
People would be surprised to learn: We still don’t have a TV!
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Whose turn it is to do the roadblock.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He’s always on time!
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Spain, it’s where the first cattle, horses and cowboys came from.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? You can spend the money or lose your trophies, but the experiences that Jet and I are gonna have, you can’t take them away.
Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: No, not really. I can depend on Jet to give 100 percent every time. We plan on leaving it all out on the Race.


Name: Jet McCoy
Age: 34
Hometown: Ada, Okla.
Previous Seasons: Seasons 16 & 18
Current occupation: Rancher
Describe what you do: Raise beef.
Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Getting lost.
Most memorable moment from your first Race: Bungee jumping with my hat on.
Favorite place you visited on your first season: Argentina.
Why do you want to run the Race again? To win.
How have you changed since the last time you competed? I’ve gotten older.
What are you passionate about? Horses.
People would be surprised to learn: I have four siblings.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Directions.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He’s habitually late.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Rome, Italy. The history.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? What else might I accomplish by running the race?
Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: Try to be more consistent.

NONONONONO.

Nonononono.

The Cowboys are:
-boring
-annoying
-overrated
-somehow considered 'the best team of all time' (not by you couchracer because favourite and best are different)
-when they are actually not good racers
-they have taken up one of the three idiotic threepeat slots that should have gone to Charla & Mirna/BQs/Oswald & Danny
-they are boring again
-they are homophobes
-the entire Facebook populace worships them for absolutely no reason
-reiterate above points again to the point of ridiculousness

I'll give Cord that he is trying to be excited. Jet might not really care.

They really should have picked ANY OTHER team than these two again  :(

ANYBODY but them. I would have even rather had Brandon & Adam come back or Art & JJ rather than them </3

Definitely not rooting for them AT ALL. Hopefully they have another TAR18 Leg 1 style total meltdown.

I feel like I had to comment about them in this Race.

TBH, I just dislike them because they are boring and I don't get how people love them so much when they have done nothing that memorable.

Anyways, we all have our own opinions and this is mine. :)
I'm a mystery you will never find out about.

I actually take a different approach to these two than the Globetrotters...I don't know why they're back again either, but I do like them much better as a team. They actually make a lot of quips and provide bro-like commentary in their interviews. Globes are just less fun other than a occasional chest bump. The cowboys really enjoy it...who knows, maybe they'll work closely with another team for once.

In terms of Cord speaking twice as much as Jet, I think they do ask them a bunch of other questions and Jet's just dont' get shown (additionally, he might just not want to say anything he'll regret, haha.)

Seriously, guys. I would say even I am funnier and more entertaining than them with their repetitive western music they get when they receive their clues. And I have not even raced for a first time. 3? Seriously?

They need a new pair of jeans, seems like they gained weight.

That's probably the most exciting comment that I can generate for these two.

Bye.

Fans of Cowboys are more annoying than Joey and Meghan, something I learnt this season while scrolling through spoilers.

I'll probably get a whole ton of hate for saying this from all the anti-cowboys out there, but here goes.

The Cowboys are without a doubt my favourite team of all time. They are legitimately the reason I fell in love with this show. I can't really put my finger on it, but I guess I just got a real kick out of watching 2 guys travel around the world together having the time of there lives. I loved how collected and calm they were in South America, and how seemingly naive they were about the world around them. Having 2 brothers, there bond is something I would like to have with my siblings. And I love that Cowboy music, of course.

Leaving all the alleged homophobic comments aside, I really just think they are good people. I really hope they win this time around, I need some closure! Come on Jet and Cord!

Im bracing for hate, but its just my opinion I guess.
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!

On last night's episode, they reminded me just how much I hate them. How "fans" call them "gentlemen" is an outrage. What WASN'T shown on the episode was a fan of their paroling them around and helping them everywhere. During the Canton Tower task, they were laughing at the teams who could not find the clue inside the bubbles, and that's where I simply got really mad. You don't act all "high and mighty" that you're "doing the Race on your own" where in fact, you received HELP. FROM SOMEONE. And you have the nerve to laugh at the teams who can't find the Race envelope. Seriously, the worst team ever out of the Three-peaters. At least Margie & Luke reminded me why I liked them on TAR 14 in the first place. The fact that they won Two Express Passes on a horrible luck-based leg is just the cherry on top of the horrible Jet & Cord tower that CBS places them on. "Most Beloved Team Ever" Puh-lease. :res:

Thoughts on who they would most likely give the express pass too? I'm expecting Mark/Mallory for the feel good "here, to make sure you stay in the game longer!" or Margie/Luke as one of the only teams they've raced alongside previously. Team that isn't getting it from them? Globetrotters, after edging them out for the top five in Unfinished. I'm expecting some ever so slight revenge tactics after that U-Turn.

Cord is as boring as he can get, but one should never hate a guy just because... he's nice and boring? #justsaying #lol

And the producers picked them... so, hate the producers. HAHAHA

That is a terrible shame.  A  loss like that can be devastating.   If those were breeder cows, even more so.  This also points up a great problem in rural America-drug abuse. 

Being from a ranching, farming & agriculture rural background, we have whole-heartedly supported the Cowboys efforts on TAR editions

Them being so UTR at the moment actually makes them tolerable :O

And even though I hated them saying they raced on their own in Leg 1, at least now they truly are and are running the amazing RACE not the amazing FRIENDS.

Still dislike them, but compared to their UB prescence, they are slightly better. I still wouldn't mind them being eliminated though :lol:

The thing is.... You really expect those 3-peater teams to get a lot of air time... Like, the show should be focused on them if they were that good to be called back for--OMG, a THIRD time!! :o I mean if they're not interesting enough or not bold enough to be shown a lot, why were they called back in the first place? And so I find it really weird that neither of the 3-peaters, especially Globbes & Cowboys, who went considerably far, hat that much screentime... I think CaroJen had more screentime than any of them, and they're not really considered to be that overly dramatic or anything, not really interesting by some.
And anyway it all just points out to another downfall by CBS - like, what is even happening? I really don't understand.. :/ I mean I really like this (what I just discussed), because I totally agree that cowboys are the most tolerable they've ever been this race, Margie & Luke, too, I'd say. And Globbes were too invisible, but I really have nothing to complain about them.

But someone please explain me, how come can CBS bring back these teams for their third times (that would mean producers love showing those teams on TV, right?..), but then they don't really show them as if they were some uninteresting casting-mistake underdogs that accidentally make it far, further than expected?..

It's a good point, but goes to show that the 3-peaters are definitely a litmus test for CBS. We may not see it happen again in future All-Star races, since there was likely just as much backlash at seeing these teams back a third time as there was backlash for not including 3 very deserving 2nd time teams. If history repeats and we see another Unfinished Business or a more "themed" return of teams, no one will be back for a third time (but my guess is...another 4 regular seasons before that?)

All this said, we can't deny Cowboys are overall a likable team by fans - they just win too often, which annoys anyone who is more than a casual fan of the show. I won't mind them making Final 3 as "the team to beat" (and hope someone does), but I also won't mind if they're the next to go.

...On a real life note, why have they not opened their own rodeo yet, haha, major attraction for the Midwest tv fan.

I thought they were okay lately but the edit they received last episode suggests they're not long for the race.

Either them or Brenchel must win.
Cowboys always get positive edits and so does Brenchel this season, which is really shocking considering how negatively portrayed they were in TAR20 :o So I guess CBS is just trying to make us like the eventual winners. And if the cowboys are gone next week, then really Brenchel must win :luvya:

Anyway, perhaps it's that I find the other 3 teams annoying & irritating, but I kinda like the cowboys this time around. They've had some moments I didn't necessarily like, but so did every single other team. I just don't have anything majorly negative to say about them :hugs:

It is ridiculous to call them the "winners" from either of their prior seasons when they did not win. And they made final three only one of those two times.

They aren't the only wildly popular team among a broad spectrum of fans, but TPTB got half of Kentucky back this time, and didn't get Jaymes and James, who by all rights should have been on this season.

I'm disappointed that they're out being in the minority of people here who like them.  I'm not surprised because they really didn't run a good leg, but I'm still disappointed.

To be honest, I have no problem with them, at all, they are really good racers, and for what it looks like, really nice people. BUT, this was their third time, and that is a problem... interesting enough is that probably out of all the third timers, they and Margie&Luke are the only one who fit in the "All-Star" category...

Agreed! I like them as a team overall, but it was boring having them back a third time for the most part. But Globes and Cowboys both had a runner-up finish under their belts (Globes in Unfinished Business) and Margie/Luke's best was 3rd place. All certainly all-star worthy, but as I've said in other threads, I doubt we'll be seeing three-peat teams in the future, while core fans like having them back, and overall it wasn't unpleasant, there are just so many deserving 2nd-timers that fans wanted to see.

Elimination Interview: Jet and Cord

Posted on May 5, 2014 03:50pm

Marci T: My heart is broken that you are gone. Would you come back again for a fourth time if asked?
Jet:
It would be difficult because of the sacrifice we’d have to make to go back on the race... but it would be really difficult to say "no" to another chance at a million dollars.
 
Paulina B: If you had gotten to the U-turn post before the country singers, what would you have done?
Cord:
Jet and I have never U-turned anybody since we try to not think about who’s behind us.  We would have just carried on.
 
Paula M: Do you regret giving the blondes the Express Pass, and do you wish you would have saved it?
Jet:
Actually, no.  It could have been any other team, but the fact that we were able to give it away and have it used at the same time was great for us.  We would have given it to any other team in the same situation.
Cord: We joked around the night before and said we would give it to the first team to ask for it, and the next day it happened to be the country singers.
 
Karen G: How has being on the Amazing Race changed your lives?
Cord:
It has been amazing.  A lot of it has been appreciating our home because we’ve been to some tough places and seeing how other people live and we’ve been to some of the most beautiful places God has created on earth and it has really just been a blessing.  They named the race right when they called it "Amazing."
Jet: The experiences we’ve had and the places we’ve seen has been amazing.  We also get recognized from being on the race. 
 
Larry M: The Cowboys were my family's favorite team. Where do your persistence and great attitudes come from?
Jet:
Faith and family.
Cord: Having the advantage of a supportive family who is always challenging me and my faith – to hold myself to higher standards.
 
Luis M: In which country did you guys feel most at home?
Cord:
Other than the United States, even looking back some of the strangest places we’ve been are all places I will never forget.  Getting off the plane in India at 1am and seeing a million people shoulder to shoulder or the beauty of riding a train across Switzerland.  There was an experience for every envelope we opened up

Brian T: Who would you like to win the race?
Jet:
Besides the cowboys, I’d like to see Dave and Connor.  They’ve run the most honest and consistent race so far.
 
Juan P: Are those the same hats you wore in all 3 races?
Cord:
No, I wore different hats every time. In the second race I wore the hat I got married in the day before I left for the race. I pretty much spent my honeymoon with my brother.
Jet: I wore the same hat in the first two and a different one in this last race.
 
Victor B: How do you feel that there are millions of people saying that you are their favorite team ever?
Jet:
I cannot be more humbled or honored by that statement.  A million dollars is a lot of money, but getting to hear people say that is worth more than the million bucks.

‘Amazing Race’ 24 Elimination: Jet And Cord Say They Had ‘A Poor Leg’ At A ‘Bad Time?’ After Third Exit?

By Lauren DuBois, ENSTARS
on May 06, 2014 01:43 PM EDT


Despite being one of the most consistently strong teams all season, Amazing Race: All-Stars was forced to say goodbye to cowboy brothers Jet and Cord for a third time, after the two were eliminated in Seville, Spain.

After being the only team U-Turned during the leg, they arrived at the pit stop last and said their goodbyes after their third trip around the world in the pursuit of a $1 million prize.

In a May 5 interview with TV Guide, the brothers admitted that while the U-Turn didn't help their case, they believe bad timing and navigation were their real downfall.

"I don't think that it's the first time we've had trouble or been lost," Cord said. "It was almost a domino effect though. You get a little lost here and it puts you behind here and that gets you U-Turned. It was a poor leg [for us] and it came at a bad time."

The two brothers also talked about being U-Turned by the Afghanimals, Leo and Jamal, a move that was considering surprising after the Alliance between them, Dave and Connor and Caroline and Jennifer agreed to use the move on Brendon and Rachel. Though they admit it was aggravating to find themselves on the U-Turn board, they did understand the strategy that was used against them.

"They had the opportunity to U-Turn somebody, and Leo and Jamal saw it as an opportunity to get us out of the race," Cord said. "They kind of said it themselves: If it came down to it, they didn't want to race against us. You hate that it's you, but on the other hand, it's kind of hard to blame them if that's how they felt. If they thought it would help them get $1 million, then so be it."

Jet added: "They said they were going to U-Turn Brendon and Rachel and then U-Turned us instead. That's kind of aggravating, but in the end, it really was their best play."

One thing the brothers seemed to remain coy about was whether or not they would consider running the race a fourth time. Before this All-Star season, they appeared on their initial race in season 16, and on an "Unfinished Business" race in season 18.

"They have to ask us first!" Cord said. "You know what was cool about when they called us to come back for this? Jet and I were riding horses in a pasture and I answered my cell phone. And we ended Amazing Race All-Stars riding a horse off into the sunset. It may not have been $1 million, but it was a winning situation."

Ruth Myles: Oh my gravy! Cowboys Jet and Cord McCoy talk elimination from The Amazing Race All-Stars

May 7, 2014. 4:01 pm



Things got real for the McCoy brothers on this week’s episode of The Amazing Race All-Stars.

Jet and Cord McCoy were eliminated on this week’s episode of TV series that sees teams race around the world, competing in challenges and hoping to cross the finish line first. After all, there’s $1 million up for grabs.

The chat started with some good-natured ribbing about our various accents . I reminded them of an article written when they were in Calgary about how they thought we northern cowboys talked funny, to which Cord said, “I’m a hillbilly, too, so don’t worry about it.”

The Oklahoma-based brothers have been to this rodeo before: Cord, 33, competed in bull riding at the Stampede in 2005 before returning as parade marshal alongside his brother in 2010. (Cord was back in the chutes at the Stampede that year, too.) He hung up his spurs last fall so now both McCoys are ranchers when they’re not racing around the world.

Jet McCoy, left, and his brother Cord were the parade marshalls at the 2010 Calgary Stampede.


But the fan favourites were last to the mat on this week’s episode. The pair had some issues navigating their way to the Zurich airport and then lost their way again in Spain. A missed clue in a challenge with pretend bulls (oh, the irony!) and being U-Turned sealed their fate.

 

Question: How tough was the competition you faced on The Amazing Race this season?

Jet: It was really tough. Cord and I were saying it was one of, if not the most, competitive cast that we have ever raced against. Everybody there was tough. It’s like Dave and Connor – and I mean this really as a compliment – but they definitely do not look very formidable when you first see them. And they’ve won four legs and they’re in the final four. Just to see them walk up, they’re not one of the teams that you would peg as competitive as they have been. Everybody on this cast is extremely experienced and competitive and hard to beat.

 

Q: You two take the race seriously: heads down, focused and trying to get all the information that you can. How did you prepare for your third time on the Race?

Cord: It was the same thing. I think the biggest thing is getting in shape for it. You are in a race around the world. I’d throw my backpack on and run down the gravel road. People must have thought I was late for school every day. You have to train for it. Training your mind might be the hardest thing because a lot of it is not what you know. It’s getting in front of a situation you don’t know anything about and (then) how you work your way through it is one of big deals on the Race.

 

Q: Do you think that the shorthand you share as brothers worked to your advantage?

Jet: I definitely feel like it’s an advantage. There were lots of times on the race especially looking back over three seasons, where Cord and I could look at each other and we knew what the other one is thinking. We didn’t have to spend a lot of time squabbling about it; we just knew what was best for us in that situation. I think there were lots of situations where that happened, where we didn’t have to stop and talk it out and whatever else we had to do. We could just get on with our race.

 

Q: What was the toughest task on this edition of the Race?

Jet: I would say for me it was the sewing. I never thought sewing would be so difficult. It definitely took me the longest. It was one of the tasks (where) I had to spend the most time to just concentrate, slow down and get through it. I never thought making a shirt would be so hard.

Cord: I think the jumping (on a trampoline in Malaysia to reach a clue). It felt like it was 100 degrees and humid. I think about the 47th jump, if I’d jumped two more times I believe I would have made my 50th jump naked, so I’m glad it ended when it did.

 

Cord, near the front, and his brother Jet had to perform a Flamenco-based task after being U-Turned on The Amazing Race All-Stars.

Q: What was the most fun this season?

Jet: I really enjoyed the raft. It was interesting watching that show back and seeing how much trouble everybody had. Me and Cord, growing up on a ranch, we know how to tie a knot. Putting the raft together didn’t seem like that big a deal. As long as your raft stayed together going down those little rapid things, you didn’t have a lot of trouble with it. Except for the rapids part, the water was kind of calm. It was just floating along. That was just kind of a neat experience to be able to take a raft down the river there (in Malaysia).

 

Q: We’ve got the second season of The Amazing Race Canada coming up. What advice would you give the teams?

Cord: I think on The Amazing Race, if you plan on being tired, lost and hungry, if you plan on those three things you’ll have a really good time because there won’t be any surprises. Other than that, have a good time.

Jet: I would say my best advice is smooth is fast. It’s not necessarily the fastest team as much as it is the team that makes the fewest amount of mistakes. If you can just be smooth and get good directions and get where you need to get. There are always so many variables that you can’t control. When you do come to a task, there are just some things people will be better at than others. If you can just smooth all the way through and maintain that, you can be the team that wins.

 

Q: What do you think of the amount of co-operation going on this season with teams playing the game by banding together?

Cord: It’s crazy, ain’t it? (Laughs) You know only one team is going to get the million dollars. I think they are planning on legs that are going to get jerked out from underneath them eventually. It’s going to be interesting to see how it shakes out.

 

Brendon and Rachel are the target of other teams on The Amazing Race All-Stars.

Q: How do you feel about the celebrity the show has brought you? People are naming their horses and children after you.

Cord: Oh, is that something or what!

Jet: Somebody named their kid after you?

Cord: Yeah, can you believe that?

Jet: Holy cow! Poor kid.

Cord: Jett and I have talked about it several times. The Amazing Race and being on TV has maybe not changed our home life that much. Working with cattle and horses, they don’t know much about reality TV. But seeing people telling you ‘Good job’ is nice. A lady about 75 years old bought my lunch for me today because I guess she felt sorry for us that we got eliminated off the Race. You’re ‘Wow, that’s pretty neat that we got a pat on the back for that.’

 

 

Q: In some press materials, it said that the top two places you wanted to go were Spain and Rome. And you did. Where else is on the list?

Jet: I thought that was crazy. Obviously, we filled out all that stuff out before we went on the Race . . . We’ve been on the Race twice (before) and have never been there. It’s interesting that we got to go to both.

Cord: London!

 

Question: Who gets that trip (which the pair won on the fourth leg of the Race)?

Cord: We haven’t worked that out yet.

Jet: I’m not going to vacation with Cord if that’s what you mean.

Q: One of you got Maui (from a previous win on an earlier Race)?

Cord: Jet actually gave me and my new wife Maui for a honeymoon. On the second Amazing Race, I got married on Saturday and we took off to race around the world the next day, so Jet kinda owed me that one.
