Most touching moments?
« on: December 06, 2015, 08:13:12 PM »
The Amazing Race is a competition and there are some sad eliminations along the way. But that doesn't mean there can't be touching moments on the Race course.

Which moments have stood out to you? For me:

- Abbie hugging the woman who helped them complete the Detour in TAR 21
- Tiffany's speech to Krista in TAR 27

Sorry if there's already a thread for this

TAR20:
Bopper encouraging Mark in India ;_____;

And for some reason:
-I always felt so sad when Vanessa kept failing at the Chicken Roadblock in the Penultimate leg. I know people hated them and said it was karma... but I legitimately felt inspired and cheered when she decided to push through with the pain and get it. :lol: <3

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice (oh)"

Vanessa and Raph is my favorite team in TAR 20, so sad when they did not make it to the final 3.

Season 1: When Dave and Margaretta were eliminated and ALL the remaining teams came out to see them off.

Season 8: Carissa on the Mat at elimination NOT going to cry, Not crying....

A few of mine have already been said, but mine includes Dave & Connor's withdrawal in Hanoi from 22. At the time, I really wanted to see them get a second chance.

And if I can also add a Canada 2 moment: Nicole doing a brutal biathlon Roadblock until she finished (22 1-km laps later), knowing they were out, to show her son she's not a quitter.
