I just realized that I should have specified that Ian had been a Marine and not a "solider" (as doesn't solider imply army? I'm not an expert), but I do remember his Boo-Yah yelling when they were repelling. Jesse Ventura was governor of my state at the time and his fake Boo-Yahs were very annoying compared to Ian's hard earned ones. Speedbump would know this. . . .
i remember teri and ian..... they were my favorite their season.
I'm quoting my own post above so that I can amend it just a little bit. I was watching Teri and Ian again a couple of hours ago on GSN (GSN is currently airing their season in their TAR reruns), and I started noticing more things that I had missed the first time around. Or at least, some things I should have paid more attention to then.

I guess he got the most flack for it from viewers partly because the editors really did a good job emphasising some of his worst moments, but also because his voice is much louder and gruffer than Teri's. But one thing Teri wasn't, was a wallflower. She snarked right back at him, and it wasn't rare for her to yell at him, either. I don't think he ever yelled at her and didn't get snarked back at by Teri right away. In fact, he quite often apologized pretty quickly.
And in most episodes, you see them holding hands in places you wouldn't normally expect it. For instance, most of the male/female teams would hold hands as they approached the pit stop mat. But elsewhere, you couldn't always find that kind of touching. But Teri and Ian could be seen in the background holding hands a lot, or with her head resting on his shoulder. No matter how good they both were at their verbal snarkiness with each other, there's no denying that these two had a loving and solid relationship. And for that reason, I do enjoy watching these two. It's makes me smile to see them snarking at each other loudly one minute, then in the next scene or two, you see them in the background walking and holding hands. :)
Goshdarnit, I like these two :)
I too have been watching Season 3 on GSN. For most of the season I found Ian really annoying with his constant yelling at Teri. He did grow on me for a number of reasons. Teri and Ian made it to the final 3 without ever making any alliances. The other teams had shifting alliances, but at no point did any other team offer them any help. The other teams tried to mislead them as much as possible. When Teri pointed out where Derek and Drew left their clue behind, they still wouldn't share any information. They even refused to admit that Teri was of any help to them, saying that they would have found the clue themselves.
Secondly, as Nemeses pointed out Teri did fight back and they did clearly love each other. Unlike other teams that fought, that was always evident.
I was also impressed how Ian reacted to being back in Vietnam after having fought there during the war. He really seemed to be happy to have the opportunity to be back and to like the Vietnamese.
Finally, I would just like to see him do well because I can relate to his age group.
Have you noticed, William, how Teri sometimes pronounces Ian's name as 'ee yan" and sometimes it's "eye an"? It looks like when she's most relaxed and less stressed that she says "ee yan", but when she was yelling at him to help her, for instance, she says "eye an". Kinda like when I was growing up, I knew I was in trouble if my mom used both my first and middle name to call me. I guess this is how Ian knows what's coming, lol. :lol It's cute.
I did notice her calling him "eye-an" and thought it strange. I had never heard the name pronounced that way. I didn't notice when she was doing it, though. I will watch to see how she pronounces his name this season. Maybe watching for it, might make this season interesting.
Hee! I love that! :D

I think Teri and Ian will be painful to watch. The first time was entertaining (disposable underwear and all) but I don't think I can take them a second time.
This time I think I'm going to enjoy them more than the first time, because now I know Teri isn't being abused and knowing that this is just the way they are with each other and there's a lot of love there between them. :) And they're a couple of smart cookies, too, but they'll always be interesting.

My favorite team so far. I doubt they win but I absolutely love to see Ian enjoying the race so much.
Go Ian and Teri!
Watching Teri and Ian's mat interview at CBS's Innertube site, and all I can say is... wayyyyy more than I needed to know about Ian's underwear situation. :thud :lol
