Go Romber!

On Rob & Amber: Against the Odds (their Fox Reality Channel show), they said they were going to go with one small bag on the race. I always wondered why the players carry these huge bags around, so it will be interesting to see if they go with this strategy.

Rob and Ambah will be a force to be reckon with...

Oh, I realize it's wise to to have them in the race because you love to hate them, but I hate the fact that Dustin & Kandice get a second chance to win the million dollar prize. They should have brought back Team Alabama: Lyn & Karlyn to make life miserable for them.

I can't wait to see a massive Bert & Ernie vs. Mirna vs. Rob meltdown.

I voted for David & Mary to go out first, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were Eric & Danielle, either.

As for the ultimate winner, I'm going with John Vito & Jill. They really flew under the radar last time and are a really great team.

It would have been miserable for us watching as well.

Also on that show, did you hear Rob talking to his agent? "Tell them they better not pull any shit with the airplanes this time, ok?"

I missed that line, but I don't doubt that he said that.

I chose Oswald & Danny, although I could see it being David & Mary, JV & J, or Eric & Danielle. In Oswald & Danny's case, I'm not sure they have enough competitive fire, although I found them entertaining during their season. I wonder how much fire JV & J will have since they are not a couple anymore?

Gee, thanks for the editorial, another website.


It just doesn't seem right without Colin & Chrisitie.

I'll be interested to see if Eric can do as well without Jeremy and if the barbies can continue to kick some ass.

Um yeah, except everyone I know who watches the race like Dustin & Kandice.

Hopefully the hillbillies go home tonight.

I just started watching The Amazing Race last fall (season 10), so the only teams I know are Dunstin (the obligatory ) & Kandice and David & Mary, and I can't wait.

I guess I'm going with Charla and Myrna to be out first, although I would be very happy if I didn't have to see any more of Rob and Amber than is completely necessary. I'm actually not too psyched about this edition yet. I'm hoping the first ep is able to draw me into it more than I am at this point.

I do not see how how 2 people vote for Rob & Amber. The vote is not for who you want to lose tonite, but for who you honestly think is going home tonite. No way Rob & Amber will be eliminated tonite.

I voted for David and Mary as well and am hoping they are gone so I don't have to listen to her yelping again.

I said in the other thread that I would love to see Uchena and Joyce be the first out just to see all the arguments again about them being the worst winners ever.

I got a good laugh when he said this on their show finale.

The words David, Mary, and All-Stars should never be used in the same sentence...I hope they are gone first. I realize many viewers may have a soft spot for them but they were nothing more than leeches last season. It's too bad that Colin/Christie and Freddy/Kendra aren't racing again. Rob/Amber, Eric/Danielle, and Dustin/Kandice are my early favorites to win it.

Looking forward to watching this year, especially since I get the feeling Survivor is going to be a dud.

I hadn't thought of that, but it's pretty much guaranteed if Mirna and Schmirna last for a while that Mirna will have problems with Rob. Still think they did a poor job casting this though. Really, who was dying to see Mirna again.

I'm sure Mirna will find Rob disGUSting. Colin is a choirboy compared to Rob. And I feel really sorry for Charla because Mirna makes me hate their team.

I just want the boring teams to go first. David & Mary and Eric & Danielle are just too bland. And while I hate the Guidos and Mirna & Schmirna, I want them to stick around because they make for great TV.

Also, I wonder if there will be any friction between the two gay teams...Bert & Ernie and The Cha's. Is there room for two of them? Will there be one gay team to rule them all? If there is, I hope it's The Cha's. They play the game like no one else.
