There a dynamic team to me.

Post by: RaceUntilWeDie on August 28, 2013, 08:26:40 PM
First impression...

By Look: Fit & athletic, competitive couple!
By Video: They seem really smart and like nice people. They give me Chip & Kim vibes for some reason.
Overall Impression: I think they'll be a likable team and serious at the same time while racing. They could go far, but they seem like the kind of team who would go out after making a poor decision(s).

I agree with you! They could quickly become one of my favorites, and I could see them doing very well.

I likeeeeee them! They give me the Aja and Ty feel though. But not making a prediction they will leave early... I think they will go far! And in a way they remind me of Nat and Kat! Doctors, blue team colour...  :colors :cheer: :funny:

Strong, but kind of boring IMO?

Prediction: F5 and above.

Ranking: Middle tier of interestingness, could fall if nobody is obnoxious and everybody is boring.

Yes I agree airlineguys, they seem a bit monotone but it's probably because of their profession (kinda cold, got the same vibe from Hoskote)
Maybe they'll need 2-3 legs before they loosen up and we warm to them.

Post by: Kamineko on August 31, 2013, 07:07:03 AM
I like this team! It's been a long time since I liked a married couple team and I think that this team will do well. The only team that I think has the vibe in this team is Ken & Tina. The best married (or re-married) couple team ever! :cheer:
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: Mister RC on September 12, 2013, 05:32:11 PM
It's a combination of TK & Rachel and Chip & Kim.  Awesome, nice couple, as mentioned, but good enough to win. Not alpha-male like or Dave & Rachel like, but enough to survive and then win when it matters the most.
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: redskevin88 on September 13, 2013, 06:19:34 AM
I think they will win as long as they don't become targets for the U-turn. This is because people might U-turn them especially if they are seen as smart.
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: stekay on September 13, 2013, 06:39:33 AM
Once they don't over-analyse things. That could be there downfall, or of course, if they become a target for the Uturn.

Loosing their fanny pack? missreading the final clue? (:;)

Still rooting for them :)

They totally are! I was watching a marathon of that show earlier today and they both came on. :colors
I totally wouldn't have noticed it until I saw your post. Someone else on Reddit said the exact same thing.

if Tim and Marie ended up giving them the EP, and they were u-turned due to their possession of the 2nd EP from Tim and Marie, that'll floor me  :funny:

but seriously though, they're the ones to beat
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: richard2013 on October 14, 2013, 06:44:13 PM
They are a strong team. They will be a u turn target for sure.

Post by: Vitoko on October 14, 2013, 07:24:59 PM
I'm rooting for this team, they are smart and the most important thing for me, they are enjoying the experience.

But I also have this feeling that they are going to screw up a little detail or forgetting something so I just hope thy get far.

Nicole's "I want the express pass!" move on Marie is just way too good not to root for.

I wanted to like'em but the editing gave them the "we're-gonna-win/they're-gonna-win" edits ...
well teams with that kinda edit tend to "not win"

remember the snowboarders? Art & JJ? the chippendales? Maxie?

you can't even count how many times they said "we're-gonna-win"
and it turned out they're NOT!!!

well, we'll see!

Well in all fairness Travis and Nicole are doctors, so ... Everything needs to be perfect and stuff ...
Something goes wrong and it may cost you a life of a human being ...
So maybe that's why they just hated losing so much ... The environment that they are regularly living kinda require them to avoid any mistakes that could possibly occur

But yes, Travis was supposed to be more supportive to Nicole. I understand that Travis couldn't help Nicole literally like Amy did, but the least he could do is to give her some moral supports. I mean the fact that it was Jason who shouted to Amy to go help Nicole and not Travis, also it was Amy who basically calmed Nicole down, really speaks volume on how Travis is not being a really good teammate at the moment. I must say I am a little disappointed

Meh. It's probably KF. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.  I'm not sure what to think, following the realization that Travis wasn't himself.  They are so close to the end, so they need to get back to whatever helped them persevere before it's too late.

Post by: Leilani on December 09, 2013, 07:02:46 AM
Last night sealed it for me.  They went from being one of the teams that I was rooting for to one of the "anyone but them" teams.  I understand he was probably tired and stressed, but that's no excuse to berate your partner.  His yelling at her during the tasks didn't exactly help her complete them any faster.  I know a million dollars is a lot of money, but they work with life or death on a regular basis.  If he's this intense over the race, I can only imagine how bad he must be when it comes to someone's life.

Travis. NO. You are a team, and you could get frustrated too while doing challenges. Does it make you feel any better to say she was the one struggling forever? Good lord they were third.
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: krabbe on December 09, 2013, 08:07:59 AM
What I don't get about this team is that how could Nicole still thinks Leo/Jamal are beneath her when she tried to cheat off Leo during the Bandung leg? She knows it's all on film, right?  :cmas11
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: Zachary on December 09, 2013, 08:21:25 AM
Good lord they were third.

LMAO! :cmaslol

In the beginning I thought they were the most deserving team to win
But looking at Nicole's performance in all the roadblocks she did in Bandung, Tokyo, and Juneau, and how Travis responded to that performances...
yup! 3rd place is still too good for them...
I hate to say it but Afghanimals deserved their spot in the final...
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: Zachary on December 09, 2013, 08:41:29 AM
also they needed to stop bitching about Afghanimals already...
coz what they lied?

Don't get me wrong, I disliked the Afghanimals also. But only because how all the other teams told us in interviews that basically they were awful when the camera was off. And when the camera was back on, ow for them it's "roses and rainbows" time to suck up with the editors. I don't like them because they were such hypocrites

But putting a shame on them cause of the lying, and especially on a "game" term, like please!
Give me a break here! You were all fighting for a million dollars. Enough said! 
:cmas10

And it's not like they were Holy Saint Honesty themselves... Travis lied to Marie in the boiling eggs roadblock. So whatever!!! Guess we find ourselves another hypocrite team.
Title: Re: Travis Jasper & Nicole Jasper "Married - ER Physicians"
Post by: krabbe on December 09, 2013, 10:55:48 AM
It's embarrassing for everyone to be so sanctimonious because at one point or another they all lied to the other teams ->Marie & Tim were going to lie to Jason & Amy about the Afghanimals stealing their taxi, telling everyone they would give them the express pass when they wouldn't, Jason & Travis lied to Marie on the egg thing, Jason & Amy & Travis & Nicole made a pact with Marie & Tim then tried to ditch them the minute they landed in Tokyo. And these were what we saw on camera. God knows what other lies were told that ended up in the editing room floor.
At least the boys were more open about lying.

I'm probably not going to say anything new, but still... They were one of my favourites early on, an interesting & competitive team, but I just couldn't stand Travis for his behaviour towards Nicole in the past few legs. As somebody already said above, good Lord they came third!  :cmaslol I was actually rooting for the Afghanimals to make final 3 (but not win pls!) in Tokyo, although I couldn't stand them for the first half of the race  :cmas27

What I'm really hoping for, is that Travis sees his flaws after watching the season and really starts to treat Nicole better :cmas26 I usually like those so called 'bickering couples' in the race, because they really bring something into the race, maybe make it more intense or so, but I don't ever want to see a Jonathan & Victoria 2.0 or in this case, a Travis & Nicole 2.0... I just felt sad for Nicole and she didn't even say anything back to Travis... just kept crying all the time :cmas4

My favorites too but good lord, the way he treated her the last few legs was terrible! I was yelling at the television.. If you could have done it better, why didn't you!

As someone pointed out to me, Nichole pulled herself up the ice with only one ice pick. That must have taken immense will power to keep going to make it to the top. I found myself wishing he would have given her encouragement, telling her she could do it to help her calm down.

I didn't mind them not helping Marie with the eggs. She certainly never helped them.

I don't mind them not telling Marie about the eggs, but Travis & Jason telling Jamal to lie to Marie when their beef with the afganimals was that the boys are liars was very hypocritical.  Making others do their dirty work for them but still preaching about running a 'clean' race  =  :cmas11

Travis acted like a spoiled brat. He said something about how well they did until the last 4 roadblocks, putting the blame on Nicole(you are a team-remember). Nicole was apologizing and he was mean spirited. Will the children ask why did Daddy make Mommy cry?

Elimination Interview: Travis and Nicole

Posted on Dec 9, 2013 06:15pm

Nicole and Travis came in third on The Amazing Race! Read what they had to say about their time on the Race and if they would change anything about their experience!

Cindy G: What country was the nicest? What country would you go back and visit again?
Travis:
I thought that Lisbon, Portugal with the castle and the view was gorgeous. Nicole and I both agreed that we were most surprised with how beautiful it was in Poland with the beach. Truthfully, I would go back to all of them if I could.

Patricia S: Why was it such a big deal that the cousins lied when it didnt affect you at all? I know you don't like liars but it had nothing to do with you, just run your race.
Travis:
I think you have a good point that it did not affect our Race at all. What bothered us is that we feel the Race is also about relationships. We were not there to make friends but a part of any good relationship is being honest and sincere.

Alejandro C: Travis, Why are you so hard on your wife, I think she is trying her best.
Travis:
You know, you have to know our relationship. Nicole is like a power wife at home and actually very dominant in our relationship. Part of it was that this was the first time she was in a position where she had to listen to me. It was more a teaching moment for me and the rest of it was frustration because I don't like to lose. I was utterly surprised to see her struggle. As hard as I can be I am probably more supportive and that is the part that is usually in private.

Brock P: What was the hardest roadblock for each team?
Travis:
Nicole was the most frustrated with the angklung. Some of the most challenging things were the ones we did together.

Paloma P: What did you learn about yourself, and about your partner?
Travis:
First, I learned that she is actually human and has some flaws. In recognizing that I realize she is much more talented than most people. For me, I learned that an exercise in humility is not enough when it comes to patience, supporting and understanding.

Kathy S: If you could go back and change one part of the Race - what part would it be?
Travis:
If I could change one thing I would probably do the angklung. If I could have done that I think it would have changed Nicole's confidence. I think that was a defining moment.

Why only Travis answered the questions? Did he think Nicole would need Amy to answer those, too?  :cmaslol

Wow. I hate Travis. Hate, I'm using such a strong word. Half the time when he whined about Nicole, I was flipping him off through the screen. :res:

This team is basically my TARUS equivalent of Joseph & Grace  :funny:

I really loved them, but after a certain leg, they just kind of became the worst team remaining in the Race. Too bad they weren't eliminated in Indonesia/Japan. :res:

I see that.

Thank goodness Joe and Grace were booted in China.

OMG, the interview is all about "how bad did Nicole do the Anklung RB"? Are you serious, Travis? Joab, I also do, I hate that behaviour. It is true they were a good team, but not a good team under pressure who behaves correctly. Travis, you are a team, you have to be together, because you are not only a team for the f race, but for the whole life. If you were by my side while I was reading that humiliating interview I would have hit you twice a second, hands down. Hope this is the last thing I have to speak about this racer.

I think Nicole deserves better honestly.

The first four episodes, I thought they were fine - not my favorite team, but a competitive one and well balanced. After that, Travis just turned into a total  :gaah:  (:;)

Nicole definitely deserved better - I mean yeah, maybe she's more dominant in the relationship elsewhere, because Travis definitely seems like the workaholic type who forgets how to be a compassionate human being in the household, but seriously the final leg was completely linear. Unless you're going to sprint across slippery ice like maniacs and risk hurting yourself in all that snow, you were never gonna catch up even if Nicole only took a few tries to get the flour bag.

So angry Afghanimals weren't among the finals instead of these two, even if Jay/Amy would have still won.

They were my favorite team in the 1st few episodes, but when Indonesia, I really started to dislike both of them, more Travis than Nicole. I just wish Travis treated Nicole with more respect.

Travis & Nicole pre Indonesia were absolute stars but after Leg 9 they were very ugh and :/ inducing and it wasn't fun to watch anymore.

He was with Nicole, Nicole was great TV throughout the entire season and it rubbed off on him.

Define bad.

He didn't do anything wrong until Indonesia so...

Travis is just another Art and JJ. When they do well on each leg, they celebrate and it's all their combined effort. When they crash and burn on other legs, it's always each other's fault or the other teams' fault (Leo and Jamal lying).

:lol:

Um, yes Travis was all mean to Nicole during that last few legs, but I didn't like Nicole either because she was trying to cheat after thinking that Leo and Jamal were lying and that's not right for them to do that. I didn't like either of them. Travis was just the worse of the two.

If Travis didn't behave the way he did towards Nicole, I think we would just be disappointed by the downfall of this TEAM and by the wrong choices this TEAM made. But now you just gotta feel for Nicole for having such a 'teammate'...

That's what I think :<3

And I only started liking this team because of Nicole's "I WANT YOUR EXPRESS PASS" incident. Most of us hated Marie and was blinded by the equally bad taste of move as well. This I'm guilty of.

The move was quite strategic in hindsight, but I do agree it was in bad taste. And it was of no benefit to either team, as Tim & Marie ended up following the Afghanimals (think it was them) to the pit stop.
