Teri and Ian - All Stars
Teri - 53, Palm City, FL, Homemaker
Ian - 54, Palm City, FL, Private investigator/Retired police LT.
Season 3 runner-up
Second place in Season 3 just wasn't good enough for this dynamic duo. Teri and Ian are still the oldest players to ever finish the Amazing Race and they are back to show that they haven't lost a step. One of the fan favorites from all the seasons of Race, Teri and Ian both have fiery personalities and a determination to win. Married for 25 years with three kids, they were by far one of the most competitive teams to ever Race. Both admit that the biggest similarity between them is that they both always think they are right, which can lead to a good amount of healthy bickering. Teri describes herself as fun, interesting and adventurous while Ian describes himself as tenacious, adventurous and candid. Both are very active and enjoy biking and traveling. When asked which team they would model their style of play after, both quickly answer, "Teri and Ian." They are proud of the way they played and aren't looking to make any changes this time around.
One of the most functional dysfunctional marriages I've ever witnessed!
I liked Teri/Ian okay. Of all the token old couples that have ever raced, these two are third on my list (behind Dave/Margaretta and Bob/Joyce). So I guess I'm glad they are filling in that slot, but I don't have high hopes for them to last long.
Even though I have watched every season, I hate to say it but I don't remember this team! :blush
Maybe after watching them on AS I'll remember them......
Two words: disposable undies. That should help you jog your memory, 'bama.
(And my apologies for anyone grossed out right now.)
:omg NOW I remember.........um...geez... thanks Leo! :confused

Ian yelled at Teri a lot (he yelled a lot in general that I remember)...and she nearly lost her pants on the way to the PS but Ian told her to keep going anyway even though they were falling down ;) Other than that-not much. Oh, Ian did have a pretty cool MacGyver moment when he (along with several other teams) put the wrong kind of fuel in their cars in Portugal and he siphoned it out. It was cooler than Flo/Zach walking back to the gas station (with a typical Flo meltdown in the process), Aaron crying by the side of the road, or Michael/Kathy just giving up and waiting the next day to get help.

For those interested, TAR3 is airing again on GSN. It just started Tuesday night. Of course, it is on at 3 a.m. (2 a.m. for any 2 hour episodes).
Thanks for all the info karalott. :up

What intrigued me about Terri and Ian was that even though he was the way he was, it was still obvious that he loved Terri very much (he actually had some sweet moments in the episode task where the teams were given cell phones and allowed to call home to their families). I liked the way he would call Terri "mother" sometimes. And I liked how she seemed genuinely touched and happy that Ian was able to revisit Vietnam and have some good memories and appreciation of the country. In spite of his personality, this is a couple who have a solid relationship and obviously love each other.
I remember in their post-season interviews, he said he was embarassed by the way he came off in the aired episodes and agreed he shouldn't have spoken to Terri so harshly. So I hope he's learned to mellow somewhat.
Also, Terri looks good with her hair longer now :)
