PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Brothers Sam/Dan started the Race with a strategy, not telling anyone they're gay and flirting with the Pokeresses. BigEasy faltered at the Roadblock, giving Mika/Canaan an advantage. At the Detour, Brian/Ericka struggled as Meghan/Cheyne got their 3rd 1st place finish. In one of the most dramatic finishes in Race history, Mika was crippled by her fear of water, allowing the Globetrotters to catch back up. Mika didn't complete the task, forcing them out of the Race.

Six teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

Credits roll.

Phil welcomes us to Dubai for the last time. Atlantis Dubai was the pitstop for the last leg of the race.

24 hours later, a release. Fly to Amsterdam. Find the Lei Lee (sp?) monument for the next clue.

Phil: This is a man made island off Dubai, shaped like a palm tree. Cost more than $12BN to create. This impressive luxury resort, the sixth pitstop in a Race around the world.

Meg/Cheyne, 1:13 pm. CLUE: Fly to Amsterdam.
Phil: Ulshva Dike, find the monument there for the next clue.

Poker girls think that Sam and Dan are still sweet, gay or straight. Everyone joking around until the flight takes off.

M/C get booked on a midnight flight, and immediately surmise that all teams will be on the same flight

and

PROBABLY EQUALIZED.

Pokeresses and Brothers leave, 3:09 and 3:10 or summat
The brothers label themselves book smart and street smart. Mmmkay.
Brian/Ericka, 3:25 pm departure.
Ticket agent says the midnight flight is it, so yeah, equalized.
They're all gonna be hanging 'round the airport awhile.

Gary/Matt 3:35 or summat

Trotters, 4:20 pm.

Airport social.

Sam/Dan introduce at the Airport Social.
"We are the token ghey team."
Immediately, the Trotters and Pokeresses glare in shock as Ericka beats the crap out of one (playfully I hope)

Night flight.

AMSTERDAM, morning.

Parking 1, they pick up their designated cars and start to drive outta the airport.
Brian doesnt know how to start "luxury cars."
Ericka nags.
Brian rebels.
He's about to rip off the gear shift.
Finally someone shows him how to do it.
He's driving. Finally.
Now she's still yelling.  
Title: Re: Episodes 7 play by play *please read the rules!*
Post by: Mandoli on November 01, 2009, 07:12:52 PM
Teams now at Martinitoren. Roadblock. Go up the staircases and doors and count the number of bells.

Guess 62 and get the next clue.
Title: Re: Episodes 7 play by play *please read the rules!*

Counting the bells is not as easy as racers thought
Title: Re: Episodes 7 play by play *please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on November 01, 2009, 07:15:18 PM
They've located the monument, the first few teams.
It's kinda a footrace.
M/C, CLUE.
Phil: Must make their way to Martinitoren, the highest building in Gronigen.

Brian/Ericka are the only team that aren't present and accounted for.
FlightTime makes a joke about how Ericka shrieks his name BRIAN! BRIAN!
 
They finally get there, in last, dunno how far behind.

Other 5 teams, ROADBLOCK.
Who's got strong legs and keen eyes?
Phil: Climb this impressive structure, inside the tower's floors and count the bells that make up the city's carillon. It's 62. They have to get the number right.

Must be the top of the hour. Some teams in the process of counting bells while the bells begin to ring.

Gary and Matt get the answer right.

Vierhuizen something or other and a windmill next.

Post by: mswood on November 01, 2009, 07:17:36 PM
This is the good old 'count accurately or you'll be here forever' roadblock.

Brian/Ericka arrive only a few minutes behind the Pokeresses, so it's reasonably close.
But Ericka is getting a long confessional about how difficult it was, with all the murky spiderwebs and whatnot.

Really good roadblock, and love when the show adds some time of noise to distract the racers.

Boy Ericka is really having trouble.

Was it Big Easy or FLight Time who did the Roadblock?
Title: Re: Episodes 7 play by play *please read the rules!*
Post by: mswood on November 01, 2009, 07:20:28 PM
Gary/Matt, done. CLUE: Make your way to Vierhuizen deMarne for the next clue.
Tiff is done, too, because Sam told her the number.
So Sam/Dan, Pokeresses, Meghan/Cheyne are done.
Pokeresses are in 4th
Sam/Dan get the lead somehow b/c other teams don't know how to find anything on the streets
That leaves FlightTime and Ericka in the tower.
Several teams are trying to find the next location, asking directions of locals.
Sam/Dan seem to know where they're going
FlightTime writes 62. Carillon player gives FlightTime the go-ahead.
Ericka's still stuck in the tower and about to melt down.

Yes, the Roadblock is darn good. It would have been better to see the girls do it on their own too. I bet they will get it too anyway.. they're poker girls!

But it'll be funny to see them don't get it too.. because it'll be shocking since they're supposed to be good with numbers.

And the irritating bells returns...

Post by: Mandoli on November 01, 2009, 07:23:16 PM
Back. Bells are ringing and Ericka goes back up the stairs.

All other teams are going to the windmill. Detour. Farmer's Game or Farmer's Dance?

Both Detours require special outfits and bikes.

Farmer's Game -- play three holes of golf in eight strokes or less. Dress down to skivvies and swim across water first.

Farmer's Dance -- one team member must ring a bell and both teams will have to dance correctly. Eat herring.

Ring-a-ding-ding, Ericka's number is wrong-g-ggg!
She goes back up the stairs and counts bells.
Brian thinks she's gotta be close. Let me know how that works out for you.

DETOUR, Sam/Dan: Farmer's game or farmer's dance?
Phil: Unwind after a hard day's work. Both, don costumes and ride bicycles.
Game: Find the marked creek, swim across in your skivvies, then play a round of farmer's golf making each hole 8 strokes or less.
Dance: Country festival, ring the bell atop the high striker. Learn and perform correctly a folk dance. Reward = Salted herring and onions. (GROSS!) Gotta eat the reward to receive the next Clue.

Ring a ding ding! Ericka says 56!

   

Ericka: Seems like this would be really easy. But it's obviously not. I just don't want to get sent home because of bells.
Brian: She's gotta be close! She's really competitive!

First three teams, Sam/Dan, Meg/Ch, Gary/Matt.
Lots of costumes. Lots of bikes.

Maria/Tiff arrive in 4th.
FlightTime/BigE arrive in 5th

Sam/Dan playing golf.
First gotta ford the canal.
They strip down to underwear and jump into the lengthy canal, to swim across to the golf course.
Meghan/Cheyne also stripping for the golf game.
Sam/Dan conf about the golf game, you only get 8 shots.
Huge mallets and huge balls. Kinda funny watching them knock balls every which-a-way as their long johns fall down their butts.

Off they go on their bikes.

Ericka calls out to Brian. She's bawling.
E: I can't figure it out! I'm sorry! I swear it's the hardest thing!
B: Just take a break and you'll figure it out.

Megh: I hate golf! But I can't do anything about it now!
Sam/Dan, done. CLUE

Meghan/Cheyne swim back across in 2nd.
Pokeresses amuse on bikes.

They cannae hit the bottom of the thingy hard enough to make the bell ring on the top. 

Ericka has a new number.
She's laughing.

Ericka: I've already cried.

Maria/Tiffany give up on trying to hit the ringer.
So off they go to the golf course.
Gary/Matt try their best to make holes in less than 8 as FlightTime knocks the tarnation out of the ringer.
Globetrotters learn their dance routine with the short woman who's half their height.

Phil: Meghan/Cheyne, you're team #2.
M: Excellent!

Ericka: I can't stand the thought of going home right now.
Brian/Ericka choose Dance.

Maria backstrokes with floaties across the canal.  

Gary/Matt have to start a hole over. A cow moos.
Tiff arrives and promptly breaks a golf club!

Maria/Tiff aren't hitting the balls hard enough to make holes in less than 8.
They share encouragement of sorts, since they're stuck doing golf.
Globetrotters add a "Soul Train" vibe to their dance at the Braderie.
Accordion music ends. They do a chest bump. Applause all the way around!
Woman: Now you have to eat something.
 
They literally INGEST the ENTIRE plate of herring at once!   
GROSS!

Matt/Dan are moving along, 7 holes down.
Pokeresses give up on golf.
Maria/Tiff will go back "and try to hit the dingy thing again."

Maria calls Tiff "my hero. I know you can."
It's closer, but not quite.
Maria tries, but is much weaker.
Tiff's got the better chance.
Brian/Ericka neglected to pick up their bikes, having walked the entire course.
Ericka: THE LEAST YOU COULD DO IS BE COMPASSIONATE!
:: bitchface ::

Phil: FlightTime/BigEasy, you look ridiculous. You're team #3.

Cow: MOO!
Matt/Gary finish golf, get CLUE.
Maria and Tiff are on try #70-something   
Ericka: MY KNEE HURTS AND I AM AGITATED. 
:: bitchface ::
Ericka: TWO HOURS. GIVE ME SOME TIME.

Maria/Tiff try #80-something

Ericka had the bitchface ready before the herring.
Meanwhile, Tiff and Maria can't hit the holes in 8 shots. They're too weak.  
Brian/Ericka, CLUE: Travel by bicycle to the next pitstop.
Having eschewed the bikes earlier (penalty, possibly?) they have to BORROW bikes.

Maria/Tiff are in agony on the golf course.
Ericka is in agony on the bench, waiting out her 30 minutes.
Ericka realizes she didn't come in last, but to lose this way would be too humiliating!

Finally ...

Phil: Brian/Ericka, you are team #5.
Brian: Way to not quit!
Ericka boo-hoos.

Ball after ball, Maria/Tiff try to hit the hole in 8. Doesn't look like they're gonna get it done.

Phil arrives at the golf course.
Phil: I understand you want to give up?
Tiff: We don't think we can finish this challenge with this weather. We understand we'll be eliminated.
T conf: We gave every challenge our all.
M conf: I see Tiff as my hero, but at the end of the day, we can only do so much.

either way they were going to be eliminated. And it was just impossible for them to finish either Detour. Why continue suffering? Although, since Phil wanted to confirm their quitting instead of just saying "all other teams have just checked in" makes me suspect it was planned to be a NEL

Yes the tried (and props to them for that) but others have also done tasks and not been able to complete them and proceed to either never give up or make their way to the Pit Stop and face either elimination or a penalty from hell.

But in competition you don't quit.  I would respect them more to walk to the Pit Stop and face the Philinator.

Not that I blame T/M in ANY way...i could not have done that bell either. This was one task that required upper body strenght.

What this reminds me of is the Bowling Moms. Done in by lack of upper body strength in a task hard for a woman to do.

I am so sad for them both, but they tried their absolute best!! I think they really had no other option at the point they gave up. :hugs:

What is the can't do a detour penalty? The choice would be take that penalty and pray it was a NEL...and who knows?? Maybe it was... :duno:

But you still don't just say I want to quit the race, even Mika & Canaan didn't do that.  You go to Phil and take your lumps.  That could be elimination (most likely) or it could be a horrendous penalty (that would still most likely cause your elimination) but you don't just quit the show.

How would they find the pit stop?  They would have to finish the detour, to get the clue to the Pit Stop. But lots of "dangling participles" in this episode.  Are M/T really eliminated? They definitely said they wanted to quit, but are they elminated? Do we get a surprise explanation at the start of the next episode?

In TAR1, Momily got a 24 your penalty for using incorrct transportation in the middle of a detour. Yet in TAR15, B/E get only a 30 minute penalty for using incorrect transportation in the middle of a detour.

Certainly will be fun to see what happens next week.
Title: Re: Episodes 7 play by play *please read the rules!*
Post by: theschnauzers on November 01, 2009, 08:38:05 PM
My recollection is that when Marshall/Lance quit the roadblock in TAR 5 because of Marshall's injury, Phil never actually told them they were eliminated, rather he came to where they were at the roadblock task, and they confirmed to Phil that they wanted to quit the Race.

Except for the fact that this was a detour, this was essentially what Phil did with Maria/Tiffany. They thus become only the second team not to complete a detour.

The gals would have been eliminated anyway for not completing the detour, and one level it doesn't matter whether it was a 2 hour, 4 hour, or 24 hour penalty.  All the other teams has checked in, and they were going to be eliminated.

Otherwise, this was an immensely entertaining leg.

I suspect the press release is off a week.  It makes complete sense to me that the NEL would be next week, because of the history of the hay bale task. And an NEL in Sweden would fit the TAR detectives' findings about the ferry on the following leg.

Well others have done it (Hayden and Aaron quit their task and were directed to the Pit Stop), so they should be able to get there.  Hell Mika & Canaan didn't finish the task and I assume they were either directed to the Pit Stop or just took the clue.

Or you do like other teams Kellie & Jamie who weren't able to light the target on fire with the flaming arrows, so they tried and kept trying (and eventually had no hope she couldn't even pull the Bow properly) until Phil showed up and told them they were eliminated.

Peter & Sarah never quit (boy were they lost) and production had to direct them to a location so Phil could eliminate them.

But you don't just say I want to quit. Because thats what happened (at least by footage)  They want to quit, they tell production, Phil comes to them to confirm and they are gone.

It's different.

I just think that quitting this way doesn't make them any less worthy.  I still respect them as racers :)

I just wanna say my two cents...

In this history of the Amazing Race where Phil comes over to a team (Toni/Dallas, Marshall/Lance, Lena/Kristy) There had never been an instance that they were spared because they couldn't complete the task. Thus, with assumption, EVEN THOUGH IT HURTS FREAKIN' MUCH...

Maria and Tiffany have been eliminated from the Race. (At least they didn't get to hear Phil's line: You are the last team to arrive...)

And if this leg could be a NEL, Maria and Tiffany could just have been sent at the Pit Stop instead of Phil going over to the Detour site.

Well no, that would be unfair to the other teams; if they're not being eliminated, they should still have to either complete the task(s) or get a penalty. If they got a truncated leg, were spared elimination, and managed to make a flight to keep them in contention, when they wouldn't have made it otherwise, I'd be pissed if I were eliminated that leg.

No. If you quit, you quit.

If they had gone to the Pitstop to say we will take our penalty...IF it was a NEL, possible they would be spared....although VERY doubtful.

But if you quit, you will not be NEL'd.

But it appears NEL will be next week not this, so perhaps the NEL thing was our mistake.  Or TPTB made a quick change to meet the circumstances.

I'm going to assume it's TPTB and their decision. I thought that the NEL was going to be this leg, as I was trusting the CBS press release. Five teams in Sweden and five teams in Estonia means that I'm going to bet the farm that a NEL's coming up next week. Anyone care to bet against that?

WOW. This season just gets more and more tricky!

I think that this leg was meant to be the non-elimination leg, but because Maria & Tiffany quit the race, they were eliminated. Anyone who thinks they are still in the race is hoping against hope. It's possible there was a last-minute Speed Bump change, or perhaps Brian & Ericka will be counted as the non-eliminated team, and have to do the Speed Bump. In any case, I think some clarification will come next week IF this was supposed to be the non-elim.

If it is the non-elim, then one of my dreams has come true. I have always been hoping to see a team quit on a non-elim, because I wandered how the production would handle it. I guess we'll see if that's the case this time.

I have lots of thoughts going in my head right now, mainly that I'm ONCE again doomed to liking sequester vids more than the actual eppys :funny:, but here's how I see it:

1. If the girls go on with it, they'd probably be there for a long time. Plus, Maria & Tiffany were shivering so they probably physically couldn't go on with it.
2. If the girls quit the Detour, might as well get eliminated then & there 'cause if it is a NEL, they can 99.9% NOT make up a 24-hour penalty.

So either way, they're on the losing stick either way. So sad... *will now start to go back in alternate TAR universe he came from*

Technically, Zev & Justin didn't quit. They already knew they were last and checked in to get eliminated. And Mika didn't quit, either. They were hoping they could just get a penalty and survive on a non-elim. I don't count quitting one task as quitting the entire race.

Quote
THE QUITTING THING: Technically we didn’t “quit”, we took a penalty for not completing the Detour which happens to be a 24hr penalty (for an unfinished Detour)... mind you, that was AFTER over THREE HOURS of attempting both challenges. Obviously we knew that by giving up on the Detour and asking for the penalty we could VERY likely be eliminated, it was unlikely that we could withstand a 24hr penalty unless it was a non-elimination leg but “quitting the Race” was not what we did, technically we took the penalty (although they worded it differently when Phil came out to the field) and at the point that Brian & Ericka checked in we were then eliminated.

Quote
THE HYPOTHERMIA THING: Between the dinger and golf challenge we spent over THREE HOURS attempting both challenges, in soaking wet clothing, in stormy, windy, freezing weather giving our best efforts between the two! At one point, on our second attempt at the golf field EMT’s had to come out to the field and take me off because they were worried I was getting hypothermia. You’ll notice that towards the end of the episode I’m wearing a gray, long sleeve which they made me wear if I was to continue the golf challenge even though the Detour rules stated that teams could only do it in the provided farmer long johns!  The EMT’s assessed my condition and felt that continuing in the given weather conditions could be a hazardous to my health, therefore production had to make a medical exception because I was so soaked to the bone and uncontrollably shaking.  CRAZY!

Maria and Tiffany tried their best the whole race .  Their arms giving out after what...71 tries?? Is hardly giving up.

And I would NEVER lump them in with Marshal and Lance...one of my least favorite teams ever.

Oh yeah for the record, this season had...

1 Team who quit the cast because of the bull**** twist (Eric and Lisa)
1 Team quitting because of their passports/documents missing (Zev and Justin)
2 Teams who quit because of the tasks (Mika; Maria and Tiffany)


One one of those teams quit the race.

Lisa and Eric were eliminated, and THEN chose to withdraw from any further TAR involvement...they did not quit the race...they were eliminated.

Zev and Justin were eliminated because of their loss of the passport>> they definitel under NO circumstances quit.

Mika quit a task>>which led to their elimination. They did not quit the race.

Tiffany and Maria DID quit took a 24 hour penalty...in the face of two tasks they could physically not complete. I'm cutting them some slack. :hugs:

Yes. It was specifically designed for a male to complete it. Tian and Jaree made history and was on the local news for being the first ever female to complete such a task, if i didn't remember correctly.

Although I like to say that I did enjoy watching the poker girls, i still think the detour and roadblock tasks were good today. I dont think it was gender biased, tiffany almost got to the top of that machine thing.

I thought this detour was actually the best detour this season with last episodes detour coming in second. The detours in the begining episodes were too soft I think, no challenge at all. At least this detour was challenging and exciting to watch. Lot's of switching detour tasks.

I really don't think that they meant it to be a gender-discriminating detour but looking back ALL FEMALES (ALL!!) struggled this leg. Megan had a hard time at first on the golf, We know what happened with the Poker girls and Ericka even though it wasn't the detour struggled on the roadblock.. Thank god for Brian's strength on the swing task thay they aced the dance detour or Ericka might also struggle with that swing task..

Ya that one. It was a task only men used to do.

I also remember the complaints about that being the cause of their loss. But in all essence, I normally don't count this as reason for their elimination. I count what happens below (going WAY off-topic):


Watch 02:18 to 02:52 where they forget to load the coir. At the time, they're ahead of Millie & Chuck. But after correctly loading the coir, they let Millie & Chuck get ahead. Had they properly attached the coir the first time, they'd have probably stayed ahead of Millie & Chuck and would've most likely finished 4th/5th that leg (depending on who wins a footrace between 'em & Millie/Chuck). Plus, just wanna share this since this brings back memories of the first time I ever watched TAR. :funny:

...or had they done the chicken Detour, they probably would've stayed.

But I think they had checked out emotionally, so in the end it worked out for them.

[as for M/T, I think switching the Detour three times, actively trying each task several times before switching hurt them more; had they just stuck with the golf the first time, they might have managed a fourth place finish).

I've discussed the episode in the other episode thread, but I just repeat my belief that Tiffany and Maria most likely are far enough behind with the 24-hour penalty that they would have been eliminated before they could have departed on the next leg.

I suspect we're going to find this out in some way in the next episode. It may come up in showing the Speed Bump (consistent with the CBS press release) and that the other teams finish the forthcoming leg before M/T could have been released. Either way they would have been eliminated. I wish the editing had been clearer last night; but I;m willing to wait and see how the next episode is edited.

Yes the tried (and props to them for that) but others have also done tasks and not been able to complete them and proceed to either never give up or make their way to the Pit Stop and face either elimination or a penalty from hell.

But in competition you don't quit.  I would respect them more to walk to the Pit Stop and face the Philinator.

To Quote the Family Edition, quiters never win, and winners never quit.  Even when you are the losers, you still are winners.
Agree.. I dun mind they keep trying like Lena and Phil come over and said you girls can stop it..

Is better that way than quitting..  :groan:
but these cases are very different. In LK's case there was still the possibility to find a clue. in MT's case the wind was making it impossible to sink the ball in.

No way! The problem for Maria/Tiffany was insufficient accuracy and length combined so they never got near the hole in 8 strokes.
Title: Re: Episodes 7 play by play *please read the rules!*
Post by: apskip on November 03, 2009, 09:08:54 AM
My recollection is that when Marshall/Lance quit the roadblock in TAR 5 because of Marshall's injury, Phil never actually told them they were eliminated, rather he came to where they were at the roadblock task, and they confirmed to Phil that they wanted to quit the Race.

Except for the fact that this was a detour, this was essentially what Phil did with Maria/Tiffany. They thus become only the second team not to complete a detour.

The gals would have been eliminated anyway for not completing the detour, and one level it doesn't matter whether it was a 2 hour, 4 hour, or 24 hour penalty.  All the other teams has checked in, and they were going to be eliminated.

Otherwise, this was an immensely entertaining leg.

I suspect the press release is off a week.  It makes complete sense to me that the NEL would be next week, because of the history of the hay bale task. And an NEL in Sweden would fit the TAR detectives' findings about the ferry on the following leg.

Make that the third team not ot complete a DETOUR. Surely Toni and Dallas qualify in this category!

It also reminded me of that due to other things:
1. There were haybale RBs on a Sweden leg on both seasons
2. Both targeted an all-female team
3. They had a huge lead on the trailing teams, but blew it
4. The trailing teams were <3<3<3
5. All the trailing teams saved were couples
6. There was a bike to the clue box before the task
7. Tiffany/Lena was doing most of the work while Maria/Kristy was providing the support :funny:
8. After this leg, the all-female teams were completely wiped out
9. They had missed opportunities (Maria/Tiffany should've most likely started with the golf; Lena was said to have missed clues) - please don't argue with me over this right now, I'm on an exaggeration roll :funny:
10. Outcome aside, I enjoyed the leg. :funny:

Now let me share my thoughts about the several gender discrimination comments. Is this the Amazing Race or the watered-down-so-female-teams-might-possibly-win race? I rest my case.

And we disagree on something again. :funny:

I understand what you meant apskip and i absolutely agree with your point of view that the race should not be designed in such a way that it is meant for the girls to win.

Last season, they tackled the problem really well by casting 3 fit, atheletic all-female teams... which proved that good casting and fit all-female teams do go far in the race.. and they can handle the physical tasks well too. Although they shouldn't always keep the all-female team casting in this category (then we won't have our Bowling Moms and Charla and Mirna love...), but it seems that this is the only way to keep the race fair?

Because in terms of physical strength related tasks... it always goes like this...

Alpha males >>> Alpha females / Non-alpha males >>> Non-alpha females

So the girls are always at a losing end no matter what when it always comes to strength/brawn related task... and thus TAR producers need to keep these tasks at a fair playing ground, and that was mainly what my gender-discrimination comment was about.. (and probably for others as well) When it comes to Detour wise, it has always not been a problem because there's always normally a strength related one and the other one which required nothing but just a waste of time. But in terms of Roadblock.. TAR producers need to be careful with the strength challenge they place on the race simply because.. only one team member can do it and once it has been decided, the decision cannot be change. But then, one can always opt for a 4 hours Roadblock penalty, which is not much of a big deal if it's a NEL.

All i can say is.. Maria and Tiff were just unlucky that both tasks sort of required strength this leg and that they had no choice but to give up on both task because they tried so hard and simply cannot complete either. And with bad weather conditions to add to their pain.. completing the Detour became even harder for them as well.. :(

My solution to your problem, the one which World Race Productions has been nominally using since Season 4, is to have few alpha male teams allowed to compete in each Amazing Race. That could level the playing field as much as possible. However, the enforcement of this policy by WRP has not exactly been rigorous. Here is a list of teams I consider to be alpha male on each of the races from Season 5 on:

5- NONE
6 (my thoughts on this one will be controversial) - Rebecca/Adam and Lori/Bolo; both Rebecca and Lori were the stronger members of their teams and functioned in an alpha male capacity
7 - Greg/Brian, Lynn/Alex
8 - the Aiello Family
9 - BJ/Tyler and Eric/Jeremy
10 - Tyler/James, Erwin/Godwin
11 - Oswald/Danny, Joe/Bill
12 - NONE
13 - Dan/Andrew, Mark/Bill
14 - Mark/Michael (even though they are short they functioned as alpha males)
15 - Sam/Dan

It is interesting to note that only 2 of the above alpha male teams won the Amazing Race while 3 of the first 4 seasons were won by alpha males. I would love just for fun to see Rebecca and Lori as a team. They would "kick ass".

However, I do not believe in casting pairs of Amazons like Jaime/Cara and Keisha/Jennifer in order to put the female teams approximately equal to the best male/female teams. I say let the chips fall where they may (and that led to the casting of Maria and Tiffany).

I loved Rebecca and Lori!! Rebecca was amazing.. :funny:

As for casting non-alpha male teams to solve the situation... it still didn't work.. Nic/Don, Mark/Michael, Mel/Mike, Gary/Matt still went relatively far in the race.

As i've said fair competitve playing ground keeps everything less controversial and equal for all. If you want to throw in alpha male team, make sure you have alpha female as well. Does that sound very Season 10 to you?

And yes, IMO Season 10 had one of the best, balanced cast in so many seasons we've seen. We see people from all wakes of life... if only the casting director focused more on casting always and take a leaf out of TAR 10 and TAR 14's cast... :funny:
