Meredith and Gretchen

Recommended Posts

If Uchjoy didn't tell them about the earlier flight they would have lost their stuff again...

Funny how Gretchen basically took full credit for finishing second...

Or when she said... we found the gnome first... not thanks Uchjoy...

I am surprised that she can still breathe with her head so far up her own butt...

Didn't you hear the fear in Merideth's voice as he called for help when she fell?  I think he'd be lost without her too.  Thats the real reason I adore these two.  In a world where people go through partners like water -- its so refreshing to see a long lasting love.  They may grate on each others nerves -- but they've loved each other long enough that they can't help but show it to anyone who sees them.  Nothing fake, nothing put on.  He loves her.  She loves him.  Simplicity is a wonderful thing.

how long have they been married? Because Meridith does have a son froma nother woman :wink: But I donno they could still have been married for a long time

Kudos to Meredith and Gretchen for persevering and making it this far!! :D (regardless of her whining....she's entitled to that, sometimes, it must be very difficult for her)

Honestly, her whining has become a running gag. Each night its a new adventure to see what will set her off. Another thing, what on earth is their problem with seeing the obvious? More times than not they miss something that is right in front of them. (Granted Ron and Kelly did the same thing looking for the clue at the tower last night.) But sometimes I don't think Gretchen and Meridith would see a barn if they were standing right in front of it. If they had back all the time they have had to spend back tracking or simply searching, they would be a full day ahead of the rest of the teams. She almost tripped over the guy with the box of scales before she led poor Meridith on that scavenger hunt to look for them. I'd pay money to see them roll out hay bales to look for a clue. I swear she could unroll all the hay in the midwest and still not see it even if it was a 6ft high neon sign. BUT....this all takes nothing away from them, they trudge on and they're in the top 4, I'm not!

Sometimes whining comes from exhaustion ... of all the teams, they have been the most physically challenged in TAR this season.

Rans, always the voice of reason. And that's why I like him so.

If Meredith and Gretchen were in the final three I'd be very happy with that. I would like to see R/A win, U/J come in 2nd and M/G come in 3rd.

I agree Skye

The world would be such a nicer place if everyone just always agreed with me. 8)

I wonder if that task next week will slow Meredith and Gretchen down at all?

I have little doubt that M/G will not win this race. Each challenge is putting harder pressure on both of them. I'm just finding it absolutely "amazing" to see things like Gretchen climbing that wall and her determination to keep going. I'm a whole lot younger -- but I'd want to give up on that one -- she kept going! I would love to see them in the final three. Oh -- and I counted: she said "Oh my God" 7 times in the two minute scene of her going up and through the tower. I supposed you could critisize that if you want -- I just thought it was funny.

I think they really did an awesome job and for some reason when they hit the mat tonight they looked the most relaxed I've ever seen them, I think they were ready to be finished, the relaxed look almost resembled relief.

I don't know why but her voice really didn't bother me much, but it could be because like others have said, I have a grandma that sounds like that,,how can you not love a grandmas voice no matter how grating it is..lol

Congratulations G and M you did an amazing job and should be proud of all you accomplished....Woo Hoo..

What struck me is that, if the rules hadnt prohibited them, U&J would have totally helped them do the boat challenge and given that Meredith appeared to have completed the driving task more quickly than Joyce, they would have been top 3 and U&J would have been out.

I think maybe M&G werent stressed because they wouldnt have wanted to beat U&J for that third slot knowing they had helped them so much the last two legs.

Should be an interesting finale with all three teams pretty much evenly matched in terms of intellect and strength.

I agree with you, they did a wonderful job and definitely didn't look bummed out at being eliminated. As for Gretchen's voice/whining, it didn't bother me as much as it bothered other people. I am so impressed with what they have accomplished! :D

The Amazing Race

I tell ya, I would not want to be around Meredith the next time he sees a red double-decker bus. He's been so amiable and even-keeled throughout the race, it's probably safe to say that he has never been as outwardly angry and aggravated as he was during that Road Block (especially around attempts six and seven). Let's remember, he was the man who last week named his figurine "Jerome The Gnome." I mean, that's a nice guy. Gretchen, his equally nice wife, was getting so fed up that her exclamation of "Oh... shoot!" was frighteningly close to an actual swear word. But can you blame either one of them? After that entire leg, it came down to pure driving ability
