The Amazing Race > The Racers

TAR 24: Cord McCoy & Jet McCoy (TAR 16+18) "Cowboys"

<< < (11/16) > >>


--- Quote from: Vitoko on May 05, 2014, 03:08:36 PM ---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...

--- End quote ---

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.

lol@them mentioning India when they never visited the country this season  :groan:

So sad that They are gonne, the only true Winners in my eyes!!!!


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

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."
