I was so proud of Sherri and I wanted to kick Akhbar for not hugging her when she came back and telling her how proud he was of her. Forget the race, experiences like this change you for life. At least he didn't say anything, I was going to be furious with him if he got on her case about it.

The tall people had a flag advantage with more leg room. When Akhbar was getting on Sherri's case about it I was like she's short where do you want the flag to go?

I thought the judge that the twins had was waaaay easier than the one at station one.

[​​​​​​/Spoiler]






IMHO, spoiler tags aren’t necessary for that because we operate on the assumption that people don’t come to the thread until after they’ve watched the episode.

Simply put no harm, no foul.

I know but I've been around TV Talk and Movie Talk for two decades and anything spoilerish without spoiler tags feels wrong

I didn’t read the spoilers about who didn’t return, so I got eliminated twice in a span of 42 minutes.

But I feel worse for the players who had good teams that didn’t return.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

I'm very bummed that my team that was pretty much in the top 2 during all previous rounds didn't come back. C'mon, guys!

But thankfully I entered this game twice! Onward!

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

In case you were wondering why teams didnít come back :

So Isaiah and Taylor actually did come back to the Race but Taylorís big brother died from Covid two days after they arrived and they understandably left to be with family.
Anthony had just started a new job and couldnít get the time off.
Connie was seven months pregnant when the Race resumed

No official word from Caro and Ray but they broke up in 2020 and probably didnít want to reunite and race together a year later.

Unfortunate that life happens, so some couldn't return, but makes my quack pick chances all the better.

in the TAR youtube channel or somewhere both said there were VISA issues for Caro since she isnít an American citizen and I think there was a travel ban coming back to the US for noncitizens. There have been separated and divorced teams racing so I think these two reality stars would have teamed up again even if they arenít still together.

Arun & Natalia are hopeless, but were saved by a non-elimination.

In some ways it’s a miracle that Sheri has been getting the job done even with a bungee jump and a poor Detour selection!

It would’ve been nice if Michael and Moe had been saved by a non-elimination leg, but they’d have lost the next one anyway.

Sorry chowderhead and Goldberg74, but you’re not done yet.

Sheri & Akbar must have been the most physically unfit team in TAR history. It’s amazing they got this far.

Yeah, I thought they'd be in a little better shape being former athletes... and especially having a 19-month break to "get fit". Oh well.

Here's the updated graphic:

They were athletes in college (and I believe that he was a coach before moving into administration). I believe that that is how they met. They mentioned how they had fallen out of shape when they had a family... and other comments like that.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

That's just bs. It's not even about this game anymore. Every time they're last it's going to be.a non-elimination leg? And if I'm remembering wrong let me know but isn't this the third time they've come in last? Record for the winning team with the most number of last places?

Obligatory I have no idea who wins.

Just caught up ... so are they not even doing speed bumps this season? I really think the speed bumps are needed to keep the non-elimination rounds fair.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

(Posting late because I was at a hockey game last night.)

There certainly wasn’t any evidence of a speed bump last night unless it was cleverly edited out.

Sorry Goldberg74 and dfmaverick2, thanks for playing. The hidden in plain sight clue on the souvlaki wrapper really tripped up LuLu and LaLa. They also became only the 2nd team (I think) that found the pit stop by accident when searching for the location of a challenge.

Here’s a nice touch of irony…. Yesterday I made plans to meet up with a friend at a Greek restaurant for lunch today! I might just have to order a souvlaki with a side of dolmas!

It was bound to happen sooner or later. I'm a little miffed that Arun and Natalia seemingly have 6 or 7 of their 9 lives left. How lucky can they be?

Here's the graphic for this week...

Even times during the race when the twins showed promise, they'd still end up near the bottom of the pack. Thanks for putting on the game again. Hoping for a good finish to the race.
