    I always tell me the same thing, since every time the teams I'd really want to choose for the poll are already taken by the time I come here. Still at least some choice is still available

    Keith/Whiteny were my first choice but they were already taken.



    I have mixed feeling about the Friday time

    I don't like Keith and Whitney because Whitney was screwing Keith on Survivor, while being married.

    Amazing Race--how about giving points to a team that is u-turned AND uses their U-turn in the same leg?

    I don't think they were actually screwing on Survivor.


    I think that is a good idea.


    And how about points for the new "save" twist

    According to Cochran, they were. Speaking of Survivor, Natalie and Nadia of seasons 21 and 24 are going to be on this season.

    Well Cochran wouldn't know screwing if it stared him in the face. And do you really think they'd do that with all the camera's around.


    I know I hope they don't last long

    Hope Keith and Whitney are the first team out, getting tired of these Survivor/Amazing Race/Big Brother crossovers. If you're going to pull this stunt in order to gain viewers who keep up with the other two reality shows, at least pick people that aren't insufferable maybe?

    Even if they didn't have sex on the show, but Whitney DID have a relationship with Keith on the show while she was married.
