    Re: 4/20 TAR 24: Episode 8 **West Coast Spoilers**

    On the next episode of the Socialist Race............

    Dave and Connor want to get a pass "because I'm a 60 year old man"
    Country Singers once again prove they can't complete a task on their own.
    Afghanimals help just a bit too much but seem to at least be playing a thoughful game because they use the help to get an edge.
    Those 3 teams who think everyone should be equal and help everyone decide they hate Brenchel for playing the game.
    A good team with a positive attitude goes home because the socialist pact decides to help one anothher instead of actually competing for the million dollars.



    GRRRRRRRRRRRRR what a sucky episode. I never thought I'd root against Dave and Connor, but they did themselves in with me tonighht. Their whining and complaining and trash talking was way too much. Dude you're a 60 year old man who won 2 legs in your last race on one leg. You're a threat so deal with it!

    I can't believe I'm not pulling for a final 3 of Brenchel, Cowboys, and Afghanimals because everyone else who's left makes my stomach turn.

    I really did not like Leo and Jamal at all last time around and they are still way to loud for me, but they are playing with some class this time around and I appreciate that. I have never minded any team helping another team; I'd rather see that then the cutthroat anything to win style of play that so many seem to love. I'm a life long gamer, but I learned to play fair and to keep my sense of ethics while trying to win. It's one of the reasons I like Face Off so much. The contestants help whoever needs help without even thinking about it.
    I have nothing against fair play and ethics however, helping other teams at this stage of the game is just plain stupid IMO. Only one team wins. I don't like it when people feel that they deserve to win because of .... whatever thing they think makes them special. As long as the teams are following the rules of the game ... of which using the U-turn is one ... then I don't see why that team should be vilified as if they are social piranhas. It is a game ... for a million dollars for the team that is the fastest/smartest/most athletic ... not the team that is the nicest!!!

    I feel as if I am watching all of them running to the mat and then stopping before stepping on it and waiting in front of Phil, going ... Oh no, you go first ... Oh no, I couldn't ... No, please, I insist ... No, I insist. You were so helpful, you deserve it ... Oh no, you helped us. Please you first ... All the while, Phil's eyebrow is going up and up and up.

    I agree. I understand the premise of fair play, but to me it involves actual play, with teams competing against each other at their utmost levels and to the best of their abilities, without actively attempting to sabotage another team while doing so. This season there has been far too much help where there should be competition. It is as if they are all competing for the Miss Congeniality prize at the end. Feel free to shout good job at one another, or give another team a congratulatory handshake, but leading another team to the detour, helping them put together their answer...no...enough already.

    I can not believe it, I actually liked the Granimals this episode. Has hell frozen over?

    Now that there are only 5 teams left are the gloves coming off?

    Dear Amazing Racers:

    It's a race, not a let's hold hands and cross the finish line as a team.

    Sincerely,

    A fan who is tired of the team and is almost ready to route for Brenchel because at least they are playing.

    Dave & Conner letting another team step on the mat before they do may have been more strategic than nice, IMO. Lemme explain. By letting another team 'go first,' that team would have ...what?.... a one minute lead on them the next leg of the race. So what? Letting another team 'go first' might just pay off for them on the next leg of the race because the team they let 'go first' may return the favor in some way that benefits them a whole lot more than that one minute lead would have benefited them. On the other hand, if Dave & Conner weren't sure whether any other teams had finished and if there is a possibility that they MAY have arrived at the mat before any other team, then, yes, it would be stupid for them to give up that number one spot because all number one finishers are rewarded with a prize.

    Re: 4/20 TAR 24: Episode 8 **West Coast Spoilers**

    I feel I am being set up this season. I am no fan of Brenchal ( when did these two start all this praying??) before or after he messed around on her .Sorry I got sidetracked.Okay The U turn is there to be used, no matter if you are 6 or 60 Dave! sheesh. Unless Brenchal are being really nasty to everyone off camera, and as I have said before are getting the kindest of edits, then what's the problem. I think they or Dave and Connor win this thing. All the other teams are against Brenchal and for Dave and Connor. I don't get it, and this "oh you go before me cr@p," on the mat that is going on this season, well it's stupid, as stupid as three teams( three) helping one another. Its a race!!! I didnt enjoy tonight, they were all pretty much like the @sses they tried to ride. Sorry to see FT and BE leave, but they seemed to have checked out even last week imho, read.the.clues.

    I do think Brendan and Rachel are getting too much face time.

    After all the years this has been on and FT and BE have been on 3 times, why they do not read and reread I will never understand. By rereading the clue is how Dave figured out to put the basket on the donkey. I have noticed that the Cowboys do not stay around to help out the other teams and are running a good race. I am tired of the Blondes and their talk about how great they are, when in actuality they are being carried by other teams.
    I would like to see the F3, Brenchel, Cowboys, and Leo/Jamal, in no particular order.

    Well that was the most interesting way to ride a mule that I've ever seen. lol@Rachel. She can be annoying but she can also bring the laughs.

    I hope someone makes a gif of the mule ride.
