    Agree. John Vito & Jill was everyone in my family's favourite team from TAR3, but were my third favourite behind Flo & Zach and Andre & Damon.

    The taxi driver in Marrakech led to a series of events ensuring Andre & Damon's elimination.

    Agree/disagree. They still missed their train stop, but if they had been able to leave the pit stop earlier they might have been able to catch an earlier flight.

    Although Rob is a complete horse's ass, he redeemed himself some when he said that Eric's comment about Danielle's boobs was inappropriate

    Agree/Disagree --- He partially redeemed himself. That one comment doesn't make up for everything.

    On that note, that quote from Eric was completely uncalled for and stupid.

    Agree -- the man is a pig and deserves to be shot.

    Kendra's "breeding" comment was probably one of the worst ones to be made on the show.

    definitely agree. That was a really rude comment
    Amazing race, that's why I said some...lol.
    On that note, Rob's comment about Meredith deliberately pushing Gretchen for sympathy was completely uncalled for

    Absolutely agree!

    (mstheresa, sorry I didn't read your post clearly. I had just come home from a terrible shopping experience, where I had to sit and wait for my sister to pick a dress.)

    (PintheDog, what was the quote made by Kendra about breeding?)

    The Intersection is a good addition to the race but they should put two on the race and at different points, because on both seasons, they have been when six teams were remaining.

    Agree -- and it should also be used when there's no team marked for elimination.

    (She said Senegal was disgusting, and the people there kept "breeding and breeding." Implying that people breed? Not cool.)

    They need to return the Detours to having a sense of balance, seeing as how most of All-Stars's Detours were incredibly unbalanced.

    Agree. That's why All-Stars sucked.

    Task queues are a good idea, except on Fast Forwards.

    Agree.

    Task queues are a bad idea on Roadblocks if they're right before the Pit Stop.

    agree because it almost seals the fate of the last person in the queue.
    Out of the people that became couples due to the race Flo & Drew and Brennan & Emily would have been better for the All-Stars than Eric & Danielle.

    Agree. In fact Flo and Drew were asked to come back but Flo denied saying that the race 'brought up the worst in her'.

    Marshall & Lance could've done really well in TAR5 if it wasn't for Marshall's sore knees.

    Disagree -- except for their second-place finish on the first leg, which was really only because of good luck at the Chips Detour, they'd mostly been middling it out or finishing at the bottom of the pack.

    Jim & Marsha and Duke & Lauren were both parent/child teams with so much potential, but lost on one wrong move each.

    Agree with that.

    (Also Pin, Marshall & Lance's low finishes had been due to bad luck at the chocolate Road Block and Marshall's knees later on.)

    With the elimination of Freddy & Kendra, the winners of 'The All-Stars Game Twisted' will either be Colin & Christie, Eric & Jeremy orEric & Danielle.

    agree

    Vipul and Arti was just as loveable as David and Mary in TAR10

    Agree. I really wanted Vipul & Arti to go further, but they were eliminated in Leg 1.

    Ken & Gerard would've been a good team for All-Stars.

    Disagree, I can think of many all-male teams that would have been better.

    Charla & Mirna were the perfect representatives of TAR5 to be in All-Stars.

    Agree -- with Colin & Christie unable to compete what with Christie's pregnancy, it made sense to cast Charla & Mirna.

    There really should've been a TAR4 and a TAR6 team on All-Stars.

    Agree, with (this is my opinion) Kris & Jon replacing David & Mary and Kelly & Jon replacing Kevin & Drew

    There should be no related pairs in a TAR season.

    If you mean no biologically-related teams, then absolutely disagree. Family-based teams are important just as much as friend, dating, and married teams.

    They ought to have a grandparent/grandchild team enter a future race.

    Agree, that would be funny to watch. and yes I meant biologically related teams in my last one.

    The shameless travelocity plugs and other sponsor plugs are becoming a pain.
