    Oh definitely in terms of a F3 NEL. Looking back at past seasons containing one where one team was disadvantaged on the final leg (TAR 7, TAR 9), this Speed Bump would create a whole new level of suspense. Place it near the beginning of the leg, though.

    Now to divide the seasons up based on winners:

    Rob/Brennan-Great winners, very likable and friendly. Would've been great for All Stars.

    Chris/Alex-Had their moments of fun, but Alex flirting with Tara was just really awkward to watch. Hey, at least they beat out the other two crappy teams in the F3.

    Flo/Zach-I don't deny Flo's entertainment value and from that standpoint, glad she won. But was she deserving of the million? Ehhhhhh...not really. But Zach deserved that money-no question.

    Reichen/Chip-Huge douchebags. Did anyone else feel like a bunch of good teams left early that season?

    Chip/Kim-Very likable and sweet, bit overrated though.

    Freddy/Kendra-Worst winners ever. You killed a great season, Kendra. My attitude throughout the season was, "As long as the models or Jonathan/Victoria don't win, I'm happy!" And of course they won.

    Uchenna/Joyce-Best winners ever for that season. But I don't like how Joyce said she'd get IVF if she won and then got a boob job by the time All Stars came around. And they weren't as good on All Stars.

    Linz Family-Three alpha males and an alpha female. With the exception of the first leg, there was no doubt in my mind they would make the F3 and be in the running for the prize.

    BJ/Tyler-I was a little suprised they beat the Frat Boys (who have the best average as racers of all time), but I'm glad they did, even if they were predictable. And they had the best T shirts ever worn on the show.

    Tyler/James-They were fun. Not great winners, but whatever.

    Eric/Danielle-Bleh. Well, they're a little better then Freddy/Kendra. That's all I can say.

    TK/Rachel-OH COME ON. Did the most boring team ever HAVE to win in a season with Ron/Christina, Nicholas/Donald, the Goths, and Azaria/Hendekea?

    Nick/Starr-Alpha male and alpha female. They were almost never targeted. Don't hate them, but I wish they hadn't won.

    Tammy/Victor-Never really hated them. I know they're kinda dull, but I liked them, and Victor's meltdown was pretty entertaining stuff.

    Megan/Cheyne-Likable enough. Not exactly the most shocking winners ever, though. And they beat Sam/Dan!

    Dan/Jordan-Yes, I dislike them, but I'd rather see them win than all the other teams in the Top 5. They're more three dimensional than the overhyped Cowboys. Why couldn't the BOTTOM six have been the TOP six for that season?

    Nat/Kat-Yay! Good winners who broke the all girl curse! About time!

    LIKE: Rob/Brennan, Chip/Kim, Uchenna/Joyce, Tyler/James, Tammy/Victor, Megan/Cheyne, Nat/Kat

    MIXED FEELINGS: Chris/Alex, Flo/Zach, BJ/Tyler

    DON'T REALLY CARE BECAUSE THEY'RE BORING: Linz Family, TK/Rachel, Nick/Starr

    DISLIKE/HATE: Reichen/Chip, Freddy/Kendra, Eric/Danielle, Dan/Jordan

    Reichen & Chip: Actually, no, I did not. The first five eliminations were actually made of win for me, as I was way too "meh" on Debra & Steve (although . . . who the hell cries over a hotel room?!) and Amanda & Chris, and I outright hated Russell & Cindy (more for Russell than for Cindy), Steve & Josh (LAX ticket counter), and Steve & Dave (not really their fault, but see Steve & Josh, and they acted pretty uncaring over screwing Monica & Sheree over). But if you mean the two eliminations after that, then yes. Monica & Sheree and Tian & Jaree both left way too soon.

    Tyler & James: Anyone -- ANYONE -- who thinks they were "fun" needs help. Serious, extensive help.

    Tammy & Victor: Victor's meltdown was pretty much the ONLY thing entertaining about them. I found Tammy sweet and likable regardless, but their entertainment value was nonexistent at least from the second half of the season to the end.

    You're the one who may need the so-called extensive help as you put it, to learn to accept the opinions of others before an honest opinion regarding yourself is made into a thread, for a second time.



    As for winners, I disliked Chris & Alex, Reichen & Chip, Freddy & Kendra, Linz & Family, Eric & Danielle, TK & Rachel and Tammy & Victor. None of them deserved the million in my opinion. Those who I reckon deserved it the most were Rob & Brennan, Chip & Kim, Uchenna & Joyce, BJ & Tyler, Meghan & Cheyne and possibly Nat & Kat.

    I did mostly mean the NFL Wives and Tian/Jaree, though I wasalso referring toSteve/Dave and Amanda/Chris. They seemed like interesting racers. Don't care about the others except Russell/Cindy, who I really disliked.


    I'm not going into any further discussions about the other two winners.

    Nice rankings, as usual! I will probably look into doing something detailed like yours later on, but for now, here is the order of things for me:



    3 - 6 - 5 - 7 - 12 - 18 - 17 - 15 - 4 - 13 - 9 - 2 - 8 - 14 - 10 - 16 - 19



    Wow, Family Edition is now my 5th least favourite, lol...

    Sweet. Heh, we have the same top four.


    Both TAR and Survivor have been dreadful in the latest season of both shows. Its making me fear the worst for reality TV. What the hell is going on? S 23 was bad, and TAR 19 was just baffling.


    Anyway, yep. GO TAR 3, 5, 6 and 7.
