I could never do it--that is probably one of the reasons I love watching it so much!

I would also love to do this show, but they don't include Canadians, no matter what the age.

I want to DO this show! Anybody wanting a 60 year old partner who is a picky eater? I'm not scared of heights, if that helps!!!!! Would be cool to be the oldest winners of TAR.

I'm just putting it out there. emoticon

I love reading what you all think of the show. I don't "hate" the young couple (can't think of their names.)
But they just aren't memorable to me.
I'm rooting for the docs or the HSN girls at this point.
I'm sooooo addicted to this show.

No real reason to dislike Jill/Thomas....I just don't want them to win. LOL

I agree with you about the HSN girls. Not mean-spirited at all, but she does get too vocal when she's stressed trying to help Claire through.

I would like to see either the doc's or HSN girls win.

I like the HSN girls--I think they work well together, they really don't complain and they have done well.

Jill & Thomas--he has an attitude to me, and in some of the early little chats, I think she said that one problem in their relationship has been that he went to Notre Dame and she is a hairdresser and he feels superior because of his college degree. She annoys me, as well--I think she is just kind of bratty at times.

Well, other than the Gleeclubbers, the Asian father/son team and Chad and Stephanie, no other team really stands out for me. And all three of these teams have been eliminated. Of the remaining racers, I really can't stand Nick. Didn't like him after his first meltdown/tantrum, and mainly hates the way he talks to her.

After Sunday, cannot stand him. I hope when Vicky looks back at this show on TV, she'll see him for the jerk he is as the rest of us do and kick his butt to the curb. She deserves so much better than him. If she stays with him, she can expect a mate that will be totally inconsiderate of her feelings and her health and will quit when the going gets tough. If that's what she wants, then Nick's her guy.

Why do y'all hate Jill and Thomas? I'm neutral about them, but what happened with them (that I must have missed) that makes people hate them?

And is it Claire's voice that makes you hate her? I don't think she's mean to Brooke, but I do think Brook babies herself. I mean, Vicky couldn't run because she had asthma and her lungs were closing up. By Brooke's own admission, she couldn't run because she's "not a runner". Huh??? It's a race, girl!!!! And I think Claire pulls her along when she gets in those moods. Afterwards, they always hug it out and since it's not meanspirited but coming from a good place, I like them ok. Again, I'm neutral.

Love Vicki, hate Nick......hate Thomas and Jill. I have been for the docs and the HSN girls most of the season. There might be an all-girl team winner this year!

I was very disappointed in Nick last night. The hubby kept saying "I hope she is smart enough to get rid of him once this is over." I thought Vicky did great for all she endured and she never gave up.

I do NOT want Thomas and Jill to win. Was so glad the doc's came in first and I hope they can go all the way.

Those were tough detours.

Oh yeah I agree - I was disappointed that it was non-elimination round. I was soooooo ready for the "punk rockers" (as they are referred to on the show) -to be kicked off.
He is just terrible!!!

My favorites are the Docs - I would like to see them win. The dating couple are still pretty much "unknowns" to me - when it was a big group - they faded into the background for me and didn't really stick out.
I'm looking forward to next week.

I too am rooting for Nat and Kat - they are the one team left who I have consistently liked from the beginning. They made some boneheaded mistakes on other legs, but they're still there and they have kept a great attitude throughout!

As far as Nick and Vicky, here's what I posted on another thread:

Gee, maybe if Vicky keeled over because of her asthma, Nick would take her seriously and realize that when she has to stop because she can't breathe, that it really can be a matter of life and death???

I too have asthma, and while I can walk 50 miles if I have to, I can't run for very long at all without feeling like my lungs are closing up. So I know how she was feeling and was just so ticked off at him for being such a jerk. And then being a baby at the detour - not like he'd had to cram food down his throat for hours and then go get on a boat.

I really feel sorry for her, but am ready for them to go because I can't tolerate him any longer.

OK, I've changed my mind about the tattoo team. He is a big baby and does not deserve to stay in the race. How many people would kill for this opportunity, and he is complaining. Come on! I also cannot stand the blonde girl of the HSN team. She is not nice to her friend at all, and her teammate does all the tasks.
Yeah, the road block was really cool. I didn't understand why some of them did not just stick with one plate until they found the fake food.
Go doctors!!

That challenge to find the boat numbers in the dark would have been very frustrating, and yet the sign would have been confusing - with very little in the clue to go on. Tough detour this time.

I wonder how far back Nick and Vicky are, but I know at one point Nick said that it was 4 AM and he was going to sleep (loser). I wish that people wouldn't go on this show for a lark. They should know that towards the end of it fatigue will set in, and be prepared to soldier on anyway.

The road block was pretty cool - the foods all looked real.

Wow...I can't wait to see who makes the final three. Vicky was lucky that it was a nonelimination leg. I don't see a bright future for Mr. Tatoo. But I wish Vicky the best of luck. She seems to have a really big heart. Love the docs for their attitude and teamwork. I know the HSN girls are not big faves but I don't mind them at all. They're just entertaining enough to keep me watching because you don't know what's going to happen with them. We'll have to see next week. emoticon

Of the teams left, I think the one team I have a problem with winning is the dating couple, Thomas and blondie. The tattooed couple is so far out that if they win, it will be a miracle. I really think it will be one of the women teams--a first for AR--unless something really happens out of left field. Which happens!

I'm thinking the same about the non-elimination leg. I'd really love to see the Thomas/Jill team land at the bottom.

I'm thinking that this will be the final non-elimination leg. I'm wondering what kind of sushi makes them gag like they show in the commercials.
