for some reason, i like rooting for black women

(except for yesterday in the parking lot, when they didnt realize i am a pedestrian with the right of way, and decidced to come within one inch of hitting me, then cussing me out)

Totally agree! To me they are such hypocrites, talking about God looking out for them when they get a favor, but not playing it forward.

On a similar note, no one stopped for the Korean brothers when their car broke down though. What does everyone think about that?

And who stopped for Mary and David when they were stuck in the mud? Granted, they probably couldn't have done a thing without a chain, but even a word of support. That being said, it IS a race and everyone knows that. At least no one cheered liked previous teams have done. What we need to remember too, is that they aren't stranded, they have a camera guy at the very least who has contact with someone. IF it had been a total loss, the car would have been replaced as they have on several other occassions. Flat tires happen everyday.

After I posted about them having a bad attitude in the general talk for TAR forum i was looking online and found a post race interview with Kellie and Jamie and they said that Lynn and Carlyn were one of the teams they bonded with. I cant see the girls bonding with them but you know how editing goes maybe they edited Lynn and Karlyn wrong.

Ahh, the infamous editing :P

Well my bone of contention with these two (beyond the whining) could be because of editing, so I am now officially going back to neutral. I wish the editors would show them bonding with other contestants, so far I've seen mostly mean comments and whining which doesn't endear them to me at all.

The ladies were shown crying about having to pass by their Kentucky friends on the way to the pit stop. And both pairs encouraged the gay couple to hang on while they waited out their 30 minute penalty.

Finally, an edit that shows why some of the other teams like them.

We mentioned getting proof of their likability and the very next show, it occurs. Coincidence? I think not.

BEHOLD THE POWER OF MORTY'S :lol:
