    And jeez Connor, lighten up. Brenden writes a silly note in the condensation and you'd think he'd insulted Connor's mother. They are all taking this way too seriously. That's why I don't think the Globetrotter's were that fussed about it all, they approached the race as something to savour and enjoy. I don't see much of that from D&C.
    He takes after his old man, no sense of humor.

    This is why I would like to have some type of reunion show. At least a question and answer chat after the players are eliminated.
    There's no place like home!

    I would like Phil to do a Q&A like they do after Survivor.

    I know it was edited to appear that Brendon and Rachel intentionally sabotaged Dave and Connor's chariot, and that Dave complained they had done it purposefully, but I don't buy it. It took awhile for all the teams to learn how to control those little devils, and most of them were just plain out of control until they got the hang of it. Factor in additional teams, the rocks, and the wall, and it translated into mass chaos. It would have taken more skill for Brendan and Rachel to crash into D&C intentionally. In addition, they would have been risking putting themselves at a disadvantage to cut them off on purpose. Even Connor said, "You got to the point where you were just crashing into each other's chariots and horses were flying everywhere."

    As for St. Dave...sorry redsox girl...clearly you are a fan, but as the 60 year old man that he keeps telling us he is, I thought it was extremely rude and childish making fun of Rachel like he was. While Brenchel obviously have their own issues, they do not pretend to be saints and above it all. I liked Dave and Connor up until all the whining last week about being u-turned but that, along with the immaturity this week, has them falling out of favour fast. Branchel may not be everyones favourites...nor mine for that matter...but I don't think they need to be made fun of for actually playing the game in the manner that it was designed. Frankly, the rest of them...other than the Cowboys...need to actually realise they are playing a game and get on with it!!!
    Wow, Dave makes a couple of comments and the whole board turns against him.

    What he did it not whining. I have seen and heard contestants in other shows that behave way, way, way worse than anything Dave has done. Rachel is a perfect example of being a whiner and Dave is no where near that. Just saying.

    I haven't heard Rachel whine that much, if at all. Dave has been a whiner for a few weeks now

    All of the Rachel imitations were stuff she has said; "the race is supposed to be fuuuuuuuun. Wah". The first time she raced she was almost unbearable.
    This season she's not nearly as bad, but mind you, every time she starts whining, Brendan is right there warning her to stop. They know how much they were despised after their first go at the race and Brenden is working hard to repair their image by keeping Rachel under control. No wonder he seems more patronizing this go around!
    Maybe editing is helping out by cutting the Rachel meltdown scenes as well. It's a guess, I don't know, but she's still an annoying twit.

    I'm not pleased with Dave's behaviour but I'm not about to burn him at the stake either. I think for Dave and Conner anyway, they ARE really serious about the race because it kind of got took right out from under them early on last time they were on it. They are also really athletic and competitive people. They aren't my favourites anymore, but I'm not putting them on the bottom either. Mainly I'm ticked at them because they are making BR look better than they are.

    This is my list: favourites on top to bottom blah
    Cowboys
    Afghanimals

    Dave and Conner

    Caroline and Jenn
    Brenden and Rachel.

    Mr. Sweetpea got a remote control helicopter from a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. It is really difficult to control, and that's just with one person controlling the speed and the direction. I cannot imagine the gong show if two people were trying to coordinate something like the remote control chariots, through rocks and around other teams all trying to learn at the same time. I think Dave and Connor blaming Brenden and Rachel for intentionally sabotaging them during the race was just confirmation bias on their part. I don't like you, your chariot hits mine, ergo you did it on purpose.

    I don't think folks have "turned" on Dave and Connor due to one comment. From reading here and around the web, people didn't appreciate Dave's hypocrisy "Sorry we u-turned you Leo and Jamal! It wasn't personal! But can you BELIEVE Brenden and Rachel u-turned us!?? It's not fair! They are bad people!" or his mocking another team or his seeming inability to just suck it up, and move on. Leo and Jamal have now been u-turned three times in total between their original season and this one, and you only saw them focus on getting the task done and getting on with it. Most of the comments I've read online have said that Dave and Connor took it way too personally and harped on it way too long.

    Re: 4/27 TAR 24: Episode 9 **West Coast Spoilers**

    I think, sweetpea, what irks me about the Dave attacks is one often finds it coupled with a counter of "I want Brenden and Rachel to win now!". Dave and Conner have been a pretty decent watch both from their first season and into most of this one. One hypocrisy, some really annoying harping for an episode, and suddenly they are horrible and Brenden and Rachel (arguably some of the most annoying people to have raced) have risen to "I want them them to win!" status?

    It astonishes me, though I should say, everyone has a right to change their opinion on a team as they so desire, and if Dave's behaviour is your pet peeve, I could totally understand why you hate him. I'm just not there, myself.
