They both look like seriously down to earth people... But I can't help but to scream "Beauty and the Geek" when I first met them. Maybe just remove those specs, Blair? :funny:

I usually never use the word 'cute' to other people, but I agree with you. My pre-favorite, I hope they deliver :hoot:

I root for Blair just because of his nerdy geek.

Hayley's voice is like an anime character, don't you think?

Wasn't there some discussion last year about whether or not the winners of the Amazing Race seemed like they were in the middle of the pre-race cast photo? What was the consensus about that? Just thinking about that today, and speculating that Blair and Hayley are in that prime spot in the photo.

That's true, but its only a coincidental pattern. Maybe it will hold true for this season, maybe it won't. Personally, I like them so far, so I wouldn't mind them winning if they give off the same vibe they do now.

Agree with that since they are my pre favourite team. But don't forget we have Tyler in this season and Tyler will always win in TAR so far . If you look the past season photo cast (TAR9, TAR10, TARAus1), all the team has Tyler was on the beside.


But anyway, all the couples are seem to be rootable in some way. But I rooted more for Blair & Hayley along with Tyler & Laura, Jelani & Jenny, Rochelle & Mike, Jon & Harley, Tuskegee and Jeff & Lyda.

They were my least favorite team. Hayley is blahblah and Blair looks really annoyed. Maybe they change after first episode but for now I didn't see any chemistry.

THIS.

My least favourite team because of Blair. Blair looks like he could do with a chill pill and just relaxed the entire experience even if he knows he isn't going to be romantically involved with Hayley.

Blair looks like he's exactly thinking about the constant need and reminder that he's wasting time "dating" a girl he doesn't want to spend time with. If these two turn out to be a couple at the end of the day, I'LL BE SURPRISED.

I have the same feelings as you guys. But i hope this change. I think those two would make a hell of a couple, that's why i'm cheering for them  :hearts:

Hayley said she was liking the first date...but i don't think anyone would say other thing.

Definitely. They're cute together (I never thought I'd say that about any couple lol), and Hayley's OTT with Blair's calm attitude could prove to work well Race-wise and relationship-wise
