Hmm, it seems like they have now become the ZEN and boring team. :(

And they are the only team to be in the top 4 for each of the first 3 legs, though they have yet to earn a 1st place. Hopefully they can match their TAR5 performance.
I hope so too, because it took 15 seasons for any team to top their record of legs won, so I'm expecting good performance from them. And I'm surprised by how well Christie seems to be adjusting to the equal roadblocks rule, because she/Colin are the only returning team from a season where there was no limit on how many roadblocks one person could do, so she only did one back then
The TAR nerd in me can’t help but point out that Nick & Starr beat their record only 13 seasons later  :glassesf:
Technically, it was 8 seasons later :glassesf:

So glad they came in 1st this leg.the last time they were #1 was Leg 10 in TAR 5 14 years ago (as of the time the show was filmed). More impressively they had bad taxi luck at the start and they vaulted from 7th to 1st.

TAR31 Colin and Christie actually seem more like TAR6 Kris and Jon.

I wouldn't mind seeing the race bring out at least a little bit of Classic Colin :D

But it seems like now that if getting hit in the head with a nail didn't, nothing will.

I do like that ever since Vietnam they've dropped the focus on being zen and have shown more of their fun side. We might get one intense moment but nothing close to his arrest or broken ox.

I wondered what flashbacks were going through Colin's mind over the last 2 legs. Back in TAR5, when they travelled from Tanzania to the UAE, he had his first major meltdown with the cab driver over the cab fare. In TAR31, they travelled from the UAE to Uganda (which has a border with Tanzania). And now, even though he could not balance the bike with the wood, he remained so calm.

In some ways, the new Colin is freaking me out.  :lol:

When Colin's bike with the firewood kept dropping, I thought for a minute we were about to get something :o

Nah.

Lol after every single episode it's the same reaction.
"oOoh we were so close to a meltdown but Colin was calm I bet he'll go crazy next week!1!!!1"

They're not the same people they were 15 years ago, time to accept that.

I think Colin really has found inner peace, which has improved his attitude.

I'm more impressed by Colin having done a 180 and being significantly calmer than he was on TAR5

Colin and Christie are certainly team Consistency!

Probably the only team on the US version that will ever have the yield and U-turn used against them, and in both of those legs, they also had to deal with bovines/cattle.  :lol: At least for this leg they finished #3.

It's cool to see them doing so well after 15 years. and I like the new Colin a lot more than I liked the old one.

Agreed on all counts. Fits in with what I was seeing on social media prior to filming season 31.
