Jobby, if you read the complete interview several things stand out. Casting found them through Facebook to apply (using Facebook is recent, but randomly soliciting teams who are not celebrities or semi-famous to apply is not new). Tanner and Josh are habitual procrastinators....however, they're not the first team to submit their materials and video at the last minute, rushed, and get selected, and they won't be the last. Have to find those Facebook pages, because casting must have seen something they found interesting.

What I found interesting in that interview is that Tanner and Josh went to competing private high schools in the Dallas area, played against each other in three different sports, and in spite of that became best friends at Texas Tech. I sure that has happened to other people, but that is intriguing nonetheless.

I read the complete interview.

The drama between them and Justin & Diana should be very very interesting as we go along :lol:

Tanner really reminds me of the druggie mactors, Tyler and James, from TAR10.

Hate when TAR "manufactors" conflict.

Totally rooting for them after 2 Legs. They seem typical Alpha-Male Team, but there are something that makes them so likeable. I am so on their boat to not rooting for Green Team. LOL

LOL Dudes are funny!!!! If they get eliminated, it will be the end of Amazing Race (for this season). I think the producers should redeem this failed season by coming up with something exciting for the next. Maybe "Celebrity Amazing Race" for charity, or "All-star comedians on Amazing Race." Or maybe 11 teams of HOTNESS (gorgeous singles who wants to mingle).

^ Are you watching a dating show? :groan:

They're actually one of the MM teams I have liked the most in recent years (though less than Ernest & Jin), but they are so stupid actually. The whole drama with Justin is so artificially blown out and I hate the fact that it even exists. Focus on YOUR race.

I slightly agree, but then I remember the "Accidental Alliance" from TAR24 and then I decided that this is at least infinitely better than that lol.

Watching they do the math is painful hilarious. :funny: I just imagine if they did the final task of TARVN this year (math without pen & paper), it would be priceless. :funny:

I don't know what to say about them when they let the girls went 1st, idiots or gentlemen. However, I hope that they can survive next leg.

Maybe their desire to win is not so big.

I think their sense of fair play is bigger that the desire to win. I like that.

Well, they are certainly good sports, but I agree that their desire to win... is not as big.

In their shoes I would have definitely been the devil and went in front of the girls not to get eliminated. But as a viewer, it would have been heartbreaking if they had done that (and it was an elimination).
Thank god it was a NEL....

Their kindness and sense of fair play cost them a spot in the final 5. Hope they will be back for the next All Stars.

I predicted them to be some kind of trainwreck M/M since the fiasco on their water bike at the starting line. :lol: But then they become competent that make me kind of indifferent toward them with all the U-Turn strategy. But then once Europe came, they became likable again and I really felt for them during their elimination. :(

Would like to see them race again (but unlikely), so hope they had fun and enjoy their race. They're one of the team I really liked this season. <3  :hearts:

TBH their downfall were caused by the following:

- Sightseeing in Paris, consequently missed the earlier train to Rotterdam
- Couldn't find a taxi on their way to the detour location in Krakow
- Josh let Tiffany passed him at the Krakow's roadblock, leading to "torture" speedbump in Agra

Anyway I'm pretty sure Tanner & Josh are well deserved to come back for UB v3.0. Most likable M/M teams since Jaymes & James???

Hardly.  In fact, certainly not.  They were like every other alpha-male team since the modern-day era arrived -- boring, uninteresting, and lacking in personality.  Or what personalities they did have were way too similar to one another.  I don't think they've done a damn thing to warrant a return invite.  I'd rather see any two teams of the F5 get the invite rather than the two of them.

But just to make myself clear, I don't think they were bad people.  Hardly.  Just not ones I took to nor would ever like to see again.  They had their chance, they took that chance, and they failed at it.

In their post-elimination interview, they want to Race again in All Stars (or Unfinished Business). If they do get picked hopefully, their edit would be better. :cheer: I want to see them return along with Kym & Alli and Hayley & Blair to name a few.

I felt bad for them in their boot episode, but I was still pretty just "okay" with them. Not in my top teams of the season but not in the bottom.

I won't miss them, but if any team has been screwed over by leg planning, it's definitely them and they definitely deserve a shot back if it happened.
