It also wouldn't have mattered which team's money they kept.
Change any of the variables & I still feel the same.
All of you folks who say you would have done the same thing as the Twinnies, don't sell yourself short. You might not have. You might view it as tainted gain. Or worry about karma of some kind. Yes, Trey & Lexi have won the last two legs, but the race ain't over yet. ;)
She probably wears the cross as a fashion statement.
I don't think I could have kept the money or, in the case of the Texans, knowingly participated and received a cut of the money, especially considering the cameras caught it all and you KNOW it's going to be broadcast. Number one, I don't deal well with guilt and number two, my family wouldn't be pleased with me and, as I work in an elementary school, how would I explain myself to the students? We always teach them to do what is right, and yet I wouldn't have done so myself. I get the idea of being in a 'game' and I know in Survivor you lie because you have to to advance yourself. But keeping that money did NOT advance the twins further. Team metal checked in BEFORE them, so it did no go to them that we could see. And I don't think it has a place in TAR. I've seen enough karma come back and bite teams in the butt before, so I wouldn't risk it personally.
Well for me its sort of tainted them. I am not overly disgusted, I know I wouldn't have taken it. But I hope they keep racing for awhile( and team Texas) because the others other than chip and dale are a bit stale for me. However, I do believe in Karma, and I dont seem the twins winning.
I sometimes wear a cross as well, but I don't belong to any religion
Simply put. Amazing Race had no issues with it so its not an issue with me either way. Much ado about nothing IMO. Someone dropped money and someone else picked it up. Teachers the dropper to be more careful.
