I think they have this little thing going......Jeff is the teacher (or tries to be) and Jordan, the sometimes rebellious pupil. All done with love; or so it seems to me. That said, neither of them are sophisticates and neither professes such. They are very natural, friendly, both good-looking, and fun for me to watch. Travel will change their view and I would love to hear them talk about the trip one day. I am glad that their luck held; once again.

Excellent comment Slim. For the second week in a row they got LUCKY. I'm glad because they are such a nice couple and fun to watch. This race can strengthen or destroy a relationship and since I hear they are still seeing each other I assume it strengthened it. I Hope.

The instant they decided to do the glasses instead of looking for grapes I knew they were toast. (pun)

I knew from spoilers that they did not win but I didn't know which leg they were Pliliminated on. They went farther than I thought they would.

Although they were not the sharpest tools in the box they were not the dullest. They were a joy to watch this season and I hope they wind up like Rob and Amber.

Since they started 3 hours later than the leaders, it was an uphill climb this week. I was so hoping they would stick with the grapes, but Jeff decided to go with the glasses which I knew was DOOOOOOOOM. Oh well, fun ride - they were a good couple and lasted a long time.

I am not sure how much longer these two will be in the media but last night is going to hold one of my all time Jordan and Jeff classics.

PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...PRICELESS ALERT...

While driving toward the Clue to find Joan of Arc:
Jordan: ...He carried all the animals?
Jeff: "He????.....That was Noah."
Jeff: "No wonder we're in last place"

Reality Sweethearts Jeff and Jordan: The Amazing Race Made Us Stronger
March 25, 2010

After falling for each other in the Big Brother house last summer, salesman Jeff Schroeder, 31, and salon receptionist Jordan Lloyd, 22, decided to take their new relationship for a test drive around the world on The Amazing Race. While they didn't win any money this time around, the couple agree the experience gave them new tools to make their long-distance (he's in Chicago; she's in Charlotte, N.C.) relationship last. –Carrie Bell So sad to see you guys go as you never ceased to entertain.
Jeff: At least we accomplished something.

Much of the entertainment value came from Jordan's ditsy moments — the granddaddy of them all being confusing Noah's Arc and Joan of Arc.
Jordan: I was like, "I don't want to watch this episode because I know they're gonna show that stupid thing I said about Joan." If I ever learned about her, that was a long time ago and I'd forgotten. Racing, you're not always thinking straight and the first thing that came to my head when I heard Arc was Noah and animals. It made me feel better when Caite said the same thing. At least I wasn't the only one.

Where did you go wrong? Biggest misstep?
Jordan: Directions. It was cold. We didn't communicate well with each other. The whole cab ride in Germany really threw us off for the next two legs. That guy took us probably 40 minutes out of the way and put us so far behind. It just went downhill from there.
Jeff: That really messed with our heads. It's hard to play catch-up.

It must be hard to swallow when bad luck — or even worse, bad directions — are to blame for your elimination.
Jeff: If you can't trust a tourist office, who should you get directions from? But one hand washes the other. When something good happens in life, usually something bad happens. We got sent on some unfortunate cab rides and got some bad directions, but we also got saved by a non-elimination [round] and a U-turn. We should have been off the show two weeks earlier. Not winning wasn't the worst thing ever. We had a great time doing the show. We learned a lot about each other and doing the show made us a stronger couple.

Glad to hear you guys are still dating. Many contestants who have known each other much longer weren't so lucky.
Jordan: The Race helped us learn more about each other. A lot of things I didn't understand about Jeff going in, I understand now. Like sometimes I felt he was yelling at me because he was raising his voice. I kept telling him, "Lower your tone with me." I learned that's just Jeff being competitive. I thought it was going to make or break us. It just made us stronger.

Jeff, is it fair that people accuse Jordan of holding you back?
Jeff: I was worried about that going in and sometimes she could have tried a little harder, but I was also too competitive. It kept me from communicating well with Jordan. I was trained in sales and she was never in sports so she doesn't share my way of thinking. I dealt with her like a coach would a player, but that's not the way to do it with her. You have to talk a little softer and understand where she's coming from. But we learned from it. She turned it up a level and I toned it down a little and that's going to help us throughout life.

Is this it for you guys and reality TV or is there another show you're hoping to get on?
Jeff: I think people are getting tired of us and need a break, so we're going back to our regular lives. We loved every minute of our 15 minutes of fame and I'm sure we're gonna miss it, so I would never say never.

The show is just not the same without these two.
