I missed the first twenty or so minutes of TAR last night, but having read what happened....I didn't like the Twins (or at least Natalie's) annoyingly loud behavior before, but what they did last night was despicable. They clearly knew whose money it was, they knew it was wrong--in terms of their own personal ethics--to take it, and they not only did that but convinced another team that initially wanted to do the right thing to dump their morals too (and I'm not excusing Trey and Lexy; they shouldn't have given in just because the twinnies offered to share their ill-gotten gains). I don't care if it's against the rules of the game or not. It's just a crappy thing to do to another team. If you're really a competitive team, you don't have to resort to "game play" to win. And on top of that, it was stupid "game play" at that. What if Trey's conscience gets the best of him and he confesses to Team Hair? You think the story won't get around to the rest of the teams? What if someone overhears the twinnies, who can't seem to shut up about anything else, gloating and spills the beans? Again, if everyone else hears, they're going to be considered team non grata by everyone else--they'll have lost everyone's trust. They don't seem to think long term about whether their behavior in general, and this incident in particular, is going to make the other teams that much more likely to avoid helping them if they need it in the future or perhaps work together to get rid of them. Other teams worked together to get rid of The Cowboys, just because they were competition. If N/N are viewed as competitive and annoying/mean-spirited besides, what makes them think the same thing might not happen to them? If another team decides to misdirect them etc. in the future, they're only going to have themselves to blame, because they made a choice to declare that it's okay to play the game as if anything other than what's directly stated in the rules was fine. On the other hand, if the twinnies had pointed out the problem to Team Hair, the other teams might also have heard about that and felt less annoyed by their loudness etc. in the future--and Team Hair would definitely have felt as if they owed them one, which might have been useful to them further down the road.
Incidentally, I would feel exactly the same way if Team Hair had treated the twinnies the same way. I would be horribly disappointed in them and would no longer want them to win. Speaking of which, I assume the rest of the teams may know by now that one of the members of Team Hair's father is terminally ill and that he got the bad news at the beginning of the previous leg. To me, that makes what N/N and L/T did extra-slimy. It's really easy, under normal circumstances, to be at less than your best in terms of keeping track of things when you've had news like that. And I don't agree that you only lose things you don't care enough about to keep track of, because people lose things all the time that they care deeply about due to a moment's oversight or circumstances beyond their control.
