I liked that A/R were so hurt by being Uturned when they had every intention of Uturning the goat boys. It's a game, it's not personal. (Did like how the Chips were kind of anguished about it though) Just like how they ran past the other team in the 1st leg. Yeah, you feel bad, but it's part of the game.

Stealing $$ is not part of the game though. I liked the twins and texas at first, but I don't any more.

I think that Ryan is going to never get over this. He seemed very bitter in the exit interview. I hope for his sake he learns to let go. I see them on another Former Teams episode.

well I'm glad you guys explained why Trey and Lexi u turned the Chips! I totally didn't get why they did that. Too funny....


I'd be fine with any of the remaining teams winning, even though I do like the Chips the best.

Was it during this interview he said Jaymes and James cost them $2 million. No Ryan, it was bad decisions on your part...i.e. flight connections. Don't blame others for your mistakes.

I didn't get it either, although I heard them all discussing it. Brilliant

It would make me if they came back from behind to win it all.

I don't hate the Twinnies nearly as much as most people seem to. I can barely watch the show with DH anymore because he just keeps repeating how annoying they are. I like how they just dive into every challenge, they're never negative, and they bicker/love each other a lot. I agree that they can be annoying and it was a bad idea to take the rockers' money, but I do respect how they race otherwise. I couldn't believe how they just chowed down on those fish in the Fast Forward!

That quote irked me, too! Ryan was my least favorite person left in the race, so I didn't mind that they were eliminated.

The Chippendales are by far my favorite. I hope they win this whole thing!

I wonder if they were able to use the U turn and all 4 of them got to the mat at the same time what would happen? The twins can go next they are so annoying, but they do work well together and have a good attitude. I just can't get past them stealing the rockers money.
Regarding the part I took the liberty of bolding... given the way Abbie & Ryan raced past Amy & Daniel on that first leg, and after Amy had just helped them, plus knowing their plan to U Turn their besties if necessary on this last episode, I have no doubt that they would have stepped on the mat first leaving the goat boys wondering what just happened.

Yep, Ryan was all about using the U Turn on his buddies if necessary, yet he was bent out of shape that the Chippies used it on him? Different set of standards for his own behavior apparently.

I'm on team Chippendale - go guys go!

to both the above. I thought sure that they wouldn't make it through the fast forward, and the boys were right behind.

I'm pretty sure that on one of the linked interviews, the rockers said they didn't know about that until they saw it on tv.

Just watched. Abby and Ryan are really poor losers. Like they wouldn't have uturned the goat farmers if they had the chance. Heck, they'd have knocked the farmers down running to beat them to check in.

I am so glad they're out!

I'm glad he's out. Now for the twinnies....
What he tweeted didn't mean anything anyway. He already knew they didn't win when he tweeted it.

Oh, I knew - even posted at the time, I believe - that his tweet was meaningless. Even if I wouldn't have known that it was meaningless, his actions/words over the course of the game sure highlighted his hollow words, KWIM?
