A twenty second incident in the episode occupies ninety percent of the complaints, casuals resort to extreme nicknames for some of the racers, and a couple of casuals REALLY like Henry & Evan. Some would say they like Henry & Evan too much.
. . .You’re part of the problem, Mr. Hotel. This is the first comment you have made that hasn’t been obsessive about Dave & Connor in months and months.
They suppress their real feelings for each other, Christina? What are you expecting? For them to start having sex on-screen or start making out? I have a feeling the general audience of TAR likes TAR because it is one of few ‘family’ shows that airs on primetime TV.
For some reason, I don’t think Henry & Even’s ‘true feelings’ will ever be exposed.
And what in the world does Henry & Evan’s actions have to do with political correctness?! They haven’t been using euphemisms for mildly offensive terms all season. In fact, all of their confessionals are fairly vanilla.
Maybe Christina wanted Evan to shout “I LOST MY FUCKING TOOTH!” during the last Roadblock, but it never came to be.
Lastly, women who wear nose rings just aren’t proper ladies.
Only Dennis Rodman gets away with it.
P.S. Bossy has to be the most coded sexist term I have ever seen.
Only Kelis gets away with it.
As a guy who doesn’t like beer and is more of an alcopop/vodka/Corona/no European or American or Canadian beers type of person, I would have a tough time suppressing my nausea.
I mean, it’s a beer bath. Just take a minute to comprehend what that smells like.
For somebody who just got engaged less than 24 hours earlier and was prompted by producers to talk about it in her confessional, I am fairly certain that it was only mentioned a couple of times.
And what are we taking a shot of? A beer from the beer bath? Because that drinking game may get a little hairy. Actually, very hairy.
“Can I jump into the beer bath?”
Oh my. There’ll be more hair than liquid in that cup.
It’s like one of them is Czech or something.
In other news, Sharon doesn’t know that when you click ‘Reply’ to a comment on a fan page, it automatically fills in the person’s name in the comment. It ain’t personal, Sharon. Marc just didn’t bother hitting backspace on his keyboard.
Somebody didn’t watch TAR 19.
Moving on. . .Lucas & Brittany are criticized for waiting nine years to be engaged. Let’s see where the discussion heads this week.
Bitchney? Bitchney? Bitchney?!
Suddenly Cheatney doesn’t seem like such a bad nickname!
Why is it an issue for people when a random couple waits a while to be engaged or get married?
It took Luke and Lorelai over a decade to get married, and no one gave two shits about that! Why is it suddenly an issue with a couple on The Amazing Race!
And why is it a four year old tactic for somebody to ask their partner to look at them in a moment of distress? Especially when they want the other partner to listen? It, uh, happens more frequently than you think.
Suzannah is going for the ~world record~ for the highest number of uses of the ~tilde~ function on a keyboard.
Perhaps because it mimics the ~ocean waves~ from which Lucas & Brittany emerged from the womb.
Poor Chris & Trevor. Perla didn’t even recall their participation on this season. I feel like a sad violin clip should be inserted here.
Either the post on The Amazing Race page became an ad which crept into Steven’s news feed, or he really tried to troll.
I don’t know why suck was a separate command.
It’s like a Jeff & Jackie joke waiting to happen. I’ll let Michael Harmstone take care of it next week.
Who created this thread on Reddit?
This is. . .a reasonably complaint as a whole. TAR has definitely gone into gimmicks starting TAR 26 and running away with that theme for the year. The Cody & Jessica may be a bit extreme, but this is the most reasonable complaint I have seen in a while.
Cody has said some pretty disturbing things, but I think you are leaving out the part where the gay team was the only team behind him. By default, the gays had to be U-Turned.
If Alex & Conor and Chris & Trevor’s positions were swapped, I am sure Alex & Conor would be U-Turned anyway. Especially Conor. Who likes Conor, really? Even Phil teases him endlessly.
As much as Chris & Trevor were in the CBS bios at the start of the season.
But seriously, let’s tackle this. Are Kristi & Jen lovers?
They met through the X Games.
And Bryan can’t wait for Kristi & Jen at the thirtieth X Games. Eight years and Bryan will get his wish!
I think 50 Cent even rapped about Kristi & Jen as a lesbian couple.
However, Kristi & Jen aren’t officially lesbians YET. They are both married and/or dating dudes as far as I know. Things could change with this week’s episode, though.
Remember how Phil teased that there was going to be a Partner Swap?
He wasn’t talking about the racers. He was talking about Kristi & Jen and their partners back home.
Granted Zimbabwe may not be the best location for this twist.
Alright. This is getting too ridiculous. I am moving on.
Oh. Right back to Big Brother 19 references. Wonderful.
The person lecturing about slander just referred to Brittany as “Bitchney”. I just felt the need to point that out.
The admin of the official TAR Facebook page actually talks?!
I actually want to see Brittany and Jess partner up. However, something tells me it would just be awkwardly silent for most of the day and would temporarily put aside their differences.
It’s like that episode of Street Fighter: The Animated Series when Guile and M. Bison have to stop going after each other because they share a mutual goal of fending off Akuma who is a greater threat to both of them because he wants their chi.
Jessica and Brittany would have to team up to overcome the mutual threat of elimination from TAR.
TAR is really trying to hype up next week. My goodness.
Suzannah is really in lecture mode today. I am going to essentially repeat what Suzannah said but in a more polite way.
Sharon, you do lie. You lie a lot.
In fact Sharon, you are lying right now.
Stephanie has no guile and is too honest. This blog might not be ideal for her.
Because this blog has always been full of Guiles. Including a bunch o’ Guiles is probably one of this blog’s Ten Commandments.
The argument over lying continues down below.
I know one thing that lying would make you a better person at.
And also. . .
Anytime people disagree on their favourite team, the word ‘hater’ has a tendency to emerge.
If I go to the Facebook page The Amazing Ice Cream Flavours and say I am disappointed that so many people like vanilla, I assume someone would call me a hater.
Last time I checked, lifeguards typically don’t use a sailboat to rescue those stranded in the water.
Perhaps Suzannah would prefer being saved by Wanda when she is drowning. Let me know how that works out for ya!
Chris & Trevor barely received any airtime. What did they ever do to you?!
Ah yes. The ongoing practice of inventing new penalties from week to week.
What’s next? Garrett & Jessica are assessed a thirty minute penalty for Jessica’s fiery personality?
Here’s the thing: Jessica did have no obligation to tell the truth to everyone and give them the answers before she submitted her own. HOWEVER. . .it is a really shitty social move on The Amazing Race. Nobody ever wins The Amazing Race without coalitions, alliances, and being semi-liked by the other teams.
Going out of your way to piss off multiple teams when you know Chris & Trevor are really far behind makes no sense.
But I’m sure Suzannah isn’t going to see it that way.
In the next comment, teams react to the teased Partner Swap. This will be fun.
What season did I miss?! Margie & Luke have actually played four times and I missed one????
We think Brittany is a little witch because of the way she left her nome behind?
What does Alaska have to do with this?!
Oh right. We’re in the TAR Canada mindset where every team wants to “set an example” and be “role models” for various demographics.
Ugh. I hate this part of TAR Canada. Season five was one of my worst reality TV viewing experiences ever.
Patrick managed to simultaneously brag about being in the military, insult someone who is crazy, and attack somebody else’s politics all in one paragraph. I don’t know how to feel about this guy. It is such a mixed bag of “you go girl” and me repeatedly cringing.
And his lower back is essentially the Final Fantasy VIII of the PlayStation world.
Yeah! How dare she talk about being engaged or editors choose to air this footage when it has been less than twelve hours since it happened and has no family members to talk about it as of yet!!!
Dipshite sounds like a British person trying to say ‘dipshit’.
And Danny thinks a team using a U-Turn has shown their weakness?
I think his favourite team ever who has been U-Turned out of the race two out of three times may disagree that using the U-Turn is a weakness.
Suzannah is trying really really hard to have the Bitchney nickname catch on, but it’s not working. If only she was a bitt briter with her taccticcs.
The teams ganged up on Jet & Cord in TAR 18?
Casual fans tend to have a selective memory of the Liechtenstein Roadblock.
Yeah. Those ratings are awfully low.
Don’t even get me started on the crossover extravaganza for Celebrity Big Brother US. I posted about it a couple weeks ago, but it is hilarious. Thank goodness I don’t watch celebrity versions of various competitive reality shows.
In all seriousness, Brittany whispered to Alex that Jess lied, talked about it in a confessional, and that has been it. I wouldn’t describe that as “craziness”.
I wonder why it’s 2 1/2 rather than three?
If only you followed the Funniest Complaints.
Team Well. . .Team Well. . .Rungs? It’ll come to me. Eventually.
If you didn’t care what anyone says, you wouldn’t be typing in all caps.
It’s like the online equivalent of Brick Tamland.
Below Josiah has a conversation about comparing the Roadblock to the same task in TAR 15.
Everyone is either a hater or a c–t when it comes to Jessica & Cody. No neutral zones are allowed.
. . .Howard really wants to talk about BB. It seems like this season has been more of a community discussing BB19 than TAR 30.
Nasty-azz Jerks sounds like one of the titles from my next rap album!
Rob talked people into taking the penalty at the Mendoza Roadblock in TAR 7? He had to convince a seventy year old man not to eat several pounds of meat in one sitting, and a woman with a small frame? That’s some alternate history.
The Jess & Cody conversation continues below.
There is a Cody & Jessica porno? I really need to get the TV Party App.
I think Tainted Tina is confusing “fear” with “a generally solid long term social game to help protect themselves from future U-Turns and tasks that they may find difficult”.
Remember what I said about the word bossy?
I love how much information others extrapolate about every racer’s personal life from a few minutes of footage of poor strategic maneuvering on The Amazing Race. . .that’s my job.
Sounds more like a Robbie thing than a Jessica thing.
The workplace could get awkward quickly.
Why is butt capitalized both times?
I haven’t seen anybody scream about butt so much since that time I hung out with Sir Mix-A-Lot.
Twit #1 and Twit #2?
It’s like the Dating Game but with twits rather than bachelors.
Why. Does. Every. Discussion. About. What. Team. You. Like. Result. In. Assumed. Political. Affiliation.
It’s like she has a chip on her shoulder.
Or on her tooth.
So we get a clip that hints at Henry being somewhat whipped in their relationship and then we get. . .this.
I can’t argue with that.
Don’t let Nas Daily read that comment.
“TROLL IN THE DUNGEON!”
I was in the same chat room for Racers Recap. . .and that is doing a pretty good job of taking what Jen said completely out of context.
And we’re really in the territory of talking about Henry & Evan using strap-ons?
Please please please don’t tell us that answer.
Something tells us that answer will be lower than how many times Connor & Jonathan have.
This is one debate I don’t really care about. Moving on. . .
Brittany is jealous of the way JESSICA looks?! I am not body shaming Jessica by any means, but. . .but I think Brittany is doing perfectly fine on her own.
From suggesting Evan uses strap-ons on Henry to referring to Brittany as a nagging bitch, TeamYale is becoming a real winner on Reddit.
I saw a proposal at the Trevi Fountain once when I was in Rome. The crowd cheered and it was a lovely moment.
Something tells me Richard isn’t into people who express PDA either.
In fact, someone like me who has had a brief history to make out with someone in public (typically in a festive atmosphere), turning around and watching a public proposal may not be such a bad alternative by comparison for Richard.
This username looks familiar. . .
Ah. How times have changed.
