As a person who is not a big fan of Tyler pre-Race, I was pleasantly surprised by his bio and vid.

I actually really like them now! :hrt:

When it comes to traveling, what’s the one thing Tyler and Korey are both scared of?

Tyler, a popular online video personalty with over 21 million followers, and Korey, Tyler's best friend and content producer, are both fearful about accidentally coming off insensitive to someone else's culture or customs while on the Race.

Gotta say I was really impressed with how well these guys raced this first leg. They were first to complete the Great Bulls of Fire detour and second out of the roadblock. One can only imagine if they had an earlier departure time they would have snagged first place.

Also I didn't see any camerawhoring like everyone was so afraid of. I'm going be rooting for these two, they seem like a pair of competent racers!
I see you watching me watching you :)

He didn't annoy me as much as Joey like I thought he would.

Then again, it's only episode 1.

Their positivity is endearing rather than annoying.

I was surprised with their 1st leg performance too. They seem to be as strong as Matt & Dana.

Tyler Oakley Reveals His Lifelong Obsession with ‘The Amazing Race’

 By Joe Otter
February 12, 2016 @ 12:01 pm                           
 

“I just love the feeling of culture shock,” social media star says of his experience on the competition show.
 Social media megastar Tyler Oakley and his best friend Korey Kuhl will compete on the new season of “Amazing Race” that begins tonight, but Oakley says that the two have been fans of many CBS competition shows for years.
 
“Me and Korey have been fans of CBS shows specifically and we have been for years and years and years,” Oakley told TheWrap. “Every single summer we would do our own ‘Big Brother’ at somebody’s house … We would do our own ‘Amazing Race’ all around our hometown. And we were in teams to drive around town to do different challenges.”
 
Oakley and Kuhl are two of the most high-profile social media stars to compete in this season of the show, along with others including vlogger Blair Fowler, Vine star Cole Labrant and Rooster Teeth co-founder Burnie Burns.
 

But Oakley says that it was not a simple matter to get cast on the show. “Korey and I made a video auditioning,” he said. “We went in to meet with the casting department. We had to go through all the processes. I guess I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. It was pretty intense.”
 
The series takes contestants all around the world as they compete for a $1 million prize. But for Oakley, the real prize was the experience.
 
“I just love the feeling of culture shock where something is so far from what you’re used to,” he said. “Going around the world in my everyday life, it’s a lot easier. There’s no pressure. You have your phone. But you experience culture shock on ‘The Race’ exponentially because you are thrown into situations where you have zero time to prepare.”

When speaking of Cole in this episode, remember who he is having to deal with 24/7. Cole is not the drama queen of the season. Let you figure out who is or will be. I haven't formed a complete opinion yet of Tyler or Korey, I want to let Race mode be a bigger factor than social media mode.

They're okay but I hope they don't dominate and follow the footsteps of the other Green Team I do NOT want that again...

Agreed. They haven't done anything offensive but dominating the Race and becoming "racebots" will be :groan:
(I think Burnie & Ashley, Brodie & Kurt, and Zach & Rachel have potential to win a leg).

My expectations from this team were negative because Tyler's the most famous racer this season. However, they did well in tasks, and they really did fine for the past 2 legs, so I'm glad they weren't what I initially expected.

I think the worst part about them is them trending #TeamTylerAndKorey instead of the SHOW when the very reason they were cast is to promote the SHOW.

Other than that they're just okay and yeah, the hate is a bit much when they haven't been despicable or annoying yet.
