Their other friend with the bubble butt (Alek Skarlatos) got to be on Dancing With the Stars, so I'm glad that these two guys are getting a chance to be recognized.

I’m hoping husband and wife Sam and Connie come back. I like their energy. So far, they’re my favorites. They got a Kellie and Jon (my all time favorite racers) vibe about them.

I’m hoping the rules doesn’t allow for another team, like those bitchy white entitled queens from last season (hated them), to form cliques to work together. That made last season one of the worse and the queens one of the worse winning teams ever. It’s The Amazing Race, not fucking Survivor or Big Brother.

I miss seeing the show when it actually was a RACE (something it hasn't been for years now). The production elements/manipulations were very much in evidence in this episode.

1. They didn't even bother to assemble all the teams in one location at the start. And there is NO WAY IN HELL that people flying from the East Coast arrived in London at the same time as people coming from the Mid-West or LAX.

2. I rolled my eyes at the obviously fake shots of teams taking their seats on totally empty flights.

2. Even if, by some miracle of scheduling, the Race was able to coordinate flight arrival times, the West Coasters would have been at a severe jet lag disadvantage after having flown for 10+ hours (non-stop) as opposed to the teams arriving from JFK.

3. All the teams were shown running to cabs at Heathrow in broad daylight, yet they arrived at Trafalgar Square well after dark (and pretty late at night judging by the lack of crowds). I know traffic in London is bad, but it really doesn't take 6+ hours to get from Heathrow to the West End.

I find it really hard to get caught up in the race when there is so much staging going on.

Obviously, they were held on arrival at Heathrow until everyone was there.

I like all of the teams. None of them seem too annoying and all of the guy/guy teams are nice to look at.

My favorites are the married couple Sam & his wife - who adopted the teen aged boy (is his name Joel), the CAGEMEAT team, and THE HEROES!

Looks like next week they STOP the race.....so it won't be long to see who won't be back.

They always gather the contestants together for the beginning of the race. That’s not manipulation. I’m sorry that you were confused that the race didn’t begin when they left for London.

At the end of this leg a team gets eliminated

When they return 19 months later, Phil announces two teams are no longer with us - so instead we have these familiar faces (teams turn and scream with joy)

So the teams knew they were racing in early COVID times, and yet one of the flight attendants constantly hugs random people when given clues, etc. The other flight attendant even said when in a London train station (I think), "Oh! I was here two weeks ago!"

Seems like they weren't being advised to use any precautions. To be fair, I don't recall seeing any masks on people in public, so these early legs must have been filmed before masks became recommended/necessary.

[quote] So the teams knew they were racing in early COVID times, and yet one of the flight attendants constantly hugs random people when given clues, etc.

They were filming in February 2020 - things didn't get locked down until March 2020

So back then Covid wasn't a thing, until the third leg.

by Anonymousreply 127January 14, 2022 3:04 PM

In February 2020 Covid WAS a thing, just official lockdowns hadn't happened. In California, we had already started wearing masks on our own and limiting contact. In fact, in January we knew something serious was going around. I suppose we were fortunate to have good, reliable resources at Stanford University giving information to residents in the Bay area; friends and family in other parts of the country chuckled when we told them to buckle up and hold on.

I mean, come on; Penn and wife did that kilt vaudeville bit like they were auditioning for their own Reality TV show.

Which, IMNSHO, is their ultimate goal beyond the AR prize, and has been throughout all their family YouTube productions (wife Kim is called a "star" of them), television appearances, and company founding.

I predict they will get their wish, so be prepared for "Hold(erness) On!". Or some such.

They have their own Wikipedia page, FGS.

Perhaps irrationally, I find them unutterably insufferable.

This is why I still love "Amazing Race" and why even CBS can't fuck it up.

There is such a sense of accomplishment and I still tear up at moments like the Indian girl trying to comfort her dad. SO glad they will be back and hope they win, just to send a good message about her helping those other teams and not paying for it badly. All the show needs is genuinely nice people to root for and that seems go be the case this season.

I’m sure that’s a factor but I imagine they like casting those teams because they’re more able to accommodate the filming schedule. Young single YouTubers or Instagramers can easily take a month to race around the world or sit on an island whereas regular folks really have to juggle work schedules and family responsibilities.

See the moment The Amazing Race encountered its biggest roadblock yet.

While filming season 33 in early 2020, the cast and crew of the CBS series encountered a problem that they've never had to deal with before: a pandemic. At that time, they were only three episodes into the season and information about the coronavirus was limited, but out of an abundance of caution, they decided to put the race on hold.

And now, E! News has an exclusive look at the moment Keoghan made that announcement. In the clip, filmed on Feb. 28, 2020, he explains, "Right now, the world is dealing with the coronavirus and in order to keep you safe, we believe the best choice for all of us is to suspend the race.

Little did everyone know that the pitstop would last more than 18 months.

Looking back, contestant Akbar Cook said, "For them to shut down a race of this magnitude—in February, it was a scary time."

Coming back, though, was pretty damn amazing. Even though there are limitations and risks to filming in the COVID-19 era, Keoghan has found a silver lining, saying, "In a way, it's kind of fun to flirt with a different way of doing the show. One of the ways that we're adjusting is, we're saying, 'Okay, we're not going to put you on a commercial flight.' We won't be allowing our teams to go out and just jump on public transport. So I'm excited for them to try the race in a different way."

Naturally contestants were game for whatever. Flight attendants Raquel Moore and Cayla Platt shared that they are among the many in their industry who were furloughed, so returning to the race was a welcome distraction. Cayla said, "We've been through a lot."

For Ryan Ferguson and Dusty Harris, life has also changed in those 18 months, with Dusty revealing that he welcomed a healthy baby boy named Miles.

And the contestants aren't viewing their break as a disadvantage, with many using the time to get in even better shape and, yes, practice their driving skills. As Cayla put it, she and Raquel "are so competitive and we know our abilities, so I think this time we're going to be easier on ourselves."

You are rewriting history, r128. Even the WHO wasn't calling COVID a pandemic until March 11. I had been keeping up on everything here since January, but COVID wasnt even on most radars until late February/early March, and even then, nobody was too worried until that week that oil crashed, the NBA shut down, and lockdowns were suddenly in place. Nobody was wearing masks because we were told they wouldn't prevent transmission.

by Anonymousreply 148January 18, 2022 6:24 AM

People were definitely talking about COVID before then, r148. I worked the Super Bowl in Miami in 2020 and had flights in January and early February. There were people in the airports were already wearing masks (a minority, granted) and everyone I worked with was talking about whether we should be taking more precautions. I remember on the flight to Miami someone sneezed several times and most of us on the plane turned to look at him nervously. I think most people at that point were expecting it to be something like SARS which didn't really affect the U.S. but people were definitely aware of it. Certainly a show like the Amazing Race dealing with international travel would have been paying attention to WHO recommendations.

I don't know why you crazy people are trying to re-write history.

NO ONE was concerned about Covid until the lockdowns happened. Most Americans were oblivious.

The only people who were concerned about it, were either medical workers, high-level government officials, or people "in the know."

I was actually traveling, and I lucked out because I returned home on a Sunday, and the city I was visiting kicked out all of the non-residents from hotels. They were shit out of luck, and had to find flights home immediately.

Does that SOUND like people knew what was going on?

People were stranded at airports, and kicked out of hotels, and desperately trying to find a way home because the lockdowns happened so suddenly.

So please SHUT THE FUCK UP about how "everyone knew."

Nobody knew, except for the well-informed. Stupid smug asshole.

Why These Four Pairs Didn't Return to Amazing Race After Covid Shutdown

Taylor and Isaiah Green-Jones released this statement

"Now that the episode has aired, I'm able to share why we didn't return to the race after the 19 month hiatus," Taylor wrote on Instagram. "My big brother/protector Montrell 'Kirk' passed away from covid 2 days after we arrived for the restart of the race. As you can imagine this was devastating for our family, friends & loved ones. Without question we left the show to be back home and support out family."

The couple went on to thank CBS and the show for "working with us and making it a priority to get home safe to our loved ones," before also thanking the other teams and viewers at home for all their support. They added they hoped to "return to the race in the future and claim victory."

Heroes Anthony Sadler and Spencer Stone

The two "definitely wanted to come back," but a lot had changed in 19 months. "I had actually just started a career job ... I kinda just got the position I had been wanting for a while and I couldn't, at that time in my life, I couldn't take that much time off," he added.

Spencer said he was "ready to rock" and added the two were "both sad" they couldn't return. "It's just a timing thing, really," said Anthony.

Sam and Connie

They confirmed Connie's pregnancy kept them from returning. The two recently welcomed a baby boy, with Connie saying she couldn't return at seven months pregnant. "When we got back, Connie could not take her hands off of me," he joked

Caro and Ray

The newly-dating, long-distance duo haven't officially said why they didn't come back -- but Caro revealed in July 2020 that she and Ray had split, so the two probably didn't want to work together as a team a full year after breaking up.

Covid was not a thing when they left and even when they came back after the show was postponned

Kim says when they came back to the USA after leg three, NO ONE was talking about Covid of the pandemic in America - it was only a week later when things got shut down

But when they went back 18 months later - Ryan & Dusty took their shirts off in the first 15 minutes of the teams being back - as both men used the down time to bulk-up. And showed off their muscles to the other teams

Which explains why the two all-female teams the last episodes were dissing Ryan & Dusty at the pit-stop, saying they need to be taken down a peg,

AR needs to bring back the mud volleyball challenge from years ago while Ryan and Dusty are still in the race. That was a popular challenge when Sam & Dan - gay brothers - did it in tightie whities. This photo shows the lesser cute bro. Both needed lots of pixelation over their crotches.

I really hope that Dusty's comment at the pit stop wasn't foreshadowing them getting eliminated.

He said something like, "you can come in first twice, but then the race can crush you at the next stop." I would be so damned disappointed, especially to have a terrible team like Arun and Natalia beat them.

That bungee jump was the most frightening one they've done. I wouldn't have even liked looking off of the dam let alone jumping off of it.

I love that they are having to drive themselves instead of relying on taxis. It adds to the challenge of the race. On the other hand, I HATE the new way to start each leg where the first two teams leave at the same time, the next ones go 15 minutes later, and then the next 15 minutes later than that. It makes it a lot more challenging. I'm sure the first two teams in this leg were probably at least three hours ahead of the last team yet that advantage is wiped out. Of course, flying somewhere often bunched the teams up as well, but this rule turns the race into a series of smaller, individual, races instead of one long race.

Akbar is such a nasty asshole. I bet he would have smacked Sherri right in the face for reminding him she did the two roadblocks if the cameras weren't there. When she was terrified of the bungee thing, he was laughing at her. He was "proud" of her for about 10 seconds before he started bitching at her again.

It just sucks the father/daughter are such fools that Akbar and Sherri keep making it through to the next leg.

R261 Sherri should have miscounted a few chestnut packs or wine bottles and made Akbar have to go get them and have to go up the staircase again; she should have pressed the point that she did the last two exceedingly difficult for her challenges, so you go! But she's sweet and unfortunately seems to be codependent. I don't like to wish a couple out for liking one half and disliking the other --- but I don't think they are as strong as the others anyway. It's most likely a matter of time before they're out. Wish Sherri would get out of that relationship though.

That would've been an act of self-sabotage. Amazing Race rules are that team members must stay within 20 feet of each other, except in special situations (such as during Roadblocks). So, she couldn't have just chilled out at the bottom but would've had to climb the stairs along with him.

I especially love sweet Ryan. He is such a good guy. Which makes it even worse that he had to go through what he went through.

The twins are cute too. They fight with each other, but it's funny fighting.

But I fear they're on the Icarus Trajectory, r348, aka the Peter Principle, to wit:

IMO, Penn and Family have had as their ultimate goal their own television sit-com, like a 21st C. "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet."

However, should Team Penn be given one after their "AR" victory (the prerequisite), Family Holderness might find out that their best medium is YouTube.

Effectively their speed bump was starting 15 minutes later than all the other teams.

I am very much team Rusty and Ryan but it just annoys the crap out of me when people think their dead relatives are sitting around in heaven helping them compete in Reality Television or anything else inconsequential. Everyone has dead relatives so even if they were helping out, so would everyone else's dead relatives and everything would still be equal and hopefully if there is any type of after life, everyone is out doing their own thing or helping out people with serious problems and not giving a leg up to someone on a stupid reality TV show, but that is Christianity, me, me, me and screw everyone else.

Caro (of Team Caro & Ray) has broken her silence about why she didn't come back to the race. It had nothing to do with the break-up saying "a break-up is not stopping me from winning a million dollars) - she said the reason was her German passport. She is a German-Brazilian citizen and does not have an American passport. So if she left the USA to travel the race, she would not be allowed back into America until the pandemic was over.

They would keep collaborating to ensure that Ryan & Dusty don't final three - and then whoever is left, all bets will be off - no more collaborating

Also, the challenges were really easy.

Eating bread with cheese.

Riding a tour boat and then arranging cards in order.

Fixing a net.

These are not typical TAR challenges.

I understand that this season was fucked because of Covid, but these challenges were just not exciting for the viewers.

The racers got through them very quickly, and it was anti-climactic.

by Anonymousreply 398February 10, 2022 6:11 PM

Exactly. The best challenges are ones that take advantage of local culture in really challenging ways. Finding underwater fish could be done anywhere. The best part of the episode was the scenery of the Corsican white cliffs, which didn't need the race contestants at all, might as well watch a travelogue.

The cast of upcoming "Survivor" in the clips don't look like they have many (or any) attractive looking people (ok, guys) in the cast. Probst's been over dimpling himself lately too, and he's otherwise too hard to take, interjecting himself into tribal councils enough that he should have been prob(st)ed himself by standards and practices. I might check it out, but coming attractions don't look very promising.

It's interesting that all of the teams find Ryan and Dusty to be the biggest threats to win -- because they're fast, buff, and have brute strength -- but I think Penn and Kim are the real team they should be worried about. They're a well-rounded team who have gotten better after the hiatus. Doesn't the Final 3 episode usually include some massive puzzle that involves memorization? I can see them taking the whole thing.

Watching this season play out, I wish now that they hadn't restarted the race after the break. I can't recall a more lackluster leg than this one.

1. Find clue in olive trees. (OMG, it's high up!)

2. Wrap dolmades. (OMG, the veins are on the outside!)

3. Spell & eat souvlaki. (OMG, they threw the wrapper away!)

4. Listen to lecture on saints and solve a memory puzzle. (OMG, please stop! My heart can't handle this much excitement.)

How in hell did production come up with these tasks and think they would translate into compelling television? I guess we should be thankful for the navigational difficulties of both Natalia/Arun and Lulu/Lala. Without all the footage of them driving in the wrong direction or accidentally finding the Pit Stop, we would have been subjected to even more of that boring-ass lecture.

Was hoping it was a non-Philimination leg to save Ryan and Dusty. Think I might have even shouted at the television. Would've been something for them to go home because of challenge based more on luck (although they can be fun and interesting) and despite Arun and Natalia being saved three (?) times.
