People also "forget" that you've helped them in the past and still bite you in the butt first chance they get.
If they want to help people to the next route markers, let them. That is just a stupid idea IMHO though, but they should have to stay silent on the challenges because then everyone has to do it and do it properly to advance.
So, for that reason it is possible that Jet is less interested in making friends and could come across as being stuckup. Cord seems to be more out-going and has a good sense of humor. However, for whatever reason, they chose to run both of these races without "budding up" with any of the other contestants, which might have come back to bite them in the end.
I think that if the Cowboys had been rude or unpleasant to the any of the other teams, then we would have at least heard them say so in one of their personal interviews. I can't remember anyone saying anything bad about them - only that they were a strong team.
Referring to a past season, with Rob Mariano: If they wanted it to be a case of eat it or lose, they would not have given it only a penalty. I would have been an outright elimination. People who were working on the challenge were puking. I'm thinking possibly Uchenna is the only one who got through eating it all without puking. And he is a big guy, which usually means they can hold more.
I got no "bad" vibe from the cowboys. I did not see their first season.
I would, at this point, prefer Justin and Zev to win. I just think they're doing the best job, overall, out there. Second choice would be the GT's, although the K/J or G/M would be acceptable. I really don't want K/V to win, mostly because of him. What a drag he is!! Metaphorically and literally. I'd be happy if they won if it would cause Vyxsin to take her half of the money, kick him to the curb, and address whatever psychological flaw allowed her to put up with him for so long.
