That's interesting. I really like them. They are goofy & happy go lucky and they make me laugh. To each their own, I guess!

I know you!

We liked Oklahoma alright until last night. When he said wearing the dress was humiliating we both looked at each other and said, "Why? Is being a woman humiliating in some way?"

We agree that the Afghanimals are completely obnoxious.

You really can't understand why a young guy would be embarrassed to be wearing that dress? I don't think he was saying it was humiliating to be a woman, it was humiliating for him to be wearing a dress. I certainly wouldn't hold it against him.

It's a macho thing, I understand completely.

I know, right? His fears were not unfounded ... The cabbie nearly fell over laughing at him.

I really don't get the Afghanimal hate. I think they are smart, cute, funny and they work well together, IRL they have business degrees and one of them owns his own business. Can someone explain how they are obnoxious? Maybe I've missed something.

The first night, I thought if I have to listen to the incessant yipping or yelping or whatever they were doing, I was not going to like them. But now I totally agree with you. They are smart, cute, funny and work well together.

I can't explain it. At first I thought too loud, try too hard to be outrageous? But that isn't it. I have liked plenty of loud, over-the-top teams before. Brooke and Clair, those pink-haired goths, the twinnies come to mind as past favorites. I thought I would like the afghanimals and I definitely don't hate them, but I do find them annoying for some reason. Most of the teams this season are really underwhelming to me. No one to root for or even against.

Of course it would be embarassing wearing anything that is out of your comfort zone but we didn't like the word nor the tone of "humiliating" that word to us implies shame. MY DH was with me on it so that's all that matters to me. We can all who we like and dislike who we dislike for whatever reasons we want.

They annoy me. Sometimes you can't explain why someone annoys you. I think it is gross how they go around practically demanding kisses from every woman they meet, they are loud and cocky. Just don't like them. but, if other people like them I couldn't possibly care less. If there was someone who absolutely LOVES pinky, I wouldn't need them to explain to me why they love her. Whatever floats people's boats

As for the cabby laughing that is because it is funny to see someone in something they wouldn't normally be seen wearing. You don't usually see men wearing polka dresses around for the heck of it. But, for us, humiliating was too strong of a word. Just our opinion.

Wow. Iggy sure looks like he's been rode hard and put up wet .

This reminds me of a blog by Science Fiction writer John Scalzi (warning, coarse language):

I'm not a fan of the Afganimals. They yell constantly. They are not very nice people. And I wanted to slap them upside their heads when them and the ice princesses couldn't figure out the world map. I also really dislike the "Race wife" thing. They rub me the wrong way.

[QUOTE=wowsmom;49944405]I've been saying that for years. If you've been u-turned, you should have to do the other detour before you can use YOUR u-turn option. I wish they would fix that loophole.

I also don't like what my sister and I call "the great equalizer" - whether it's everybody on the same flight or train or ship, it really stinks for the teams that were hours and hours ahead (like the beards and Jason & Amy were last night).[/QUOTE]

I HATE when they do that.

How about it's just not attractive to act like a big freaking baby?!

i think if i'd only seen the last couple episodes, i'd agree with you to some degree. personality wise, they are goofy on the edge of annoying. i guess what really turned me off was the whole race wife thing. i get it, you like these girls and want to stick with them. it started to come off creepy and pathetic and in a race full of teams that dont stand out, that left them as one of the worst in my eyes.

sad to see oklahoma go home. sometimes its sad seeing someone struggle with a challenge, but that was sad AND embarassing watching him try to get that song last night. i felt bad for him...usually when you are embarassed of your singing voice, you sing really quietly. he seemed to be loud and really trying. it was just awful.

The "race wife" thing rubbed initially me the wrong way too, but Ally and Ashley seemed fine with it and even called Leo and Jamal their "race husbands". I like both teams, so I gave them both a pass on it.

They were not my favorites, but I was also sad to see them go. They seemed so nice.
