"More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
From TV Guide.

They say the Weavers were the only family on the race not to offer them help after they lost everything in the hurricane and also give their opinions on why the Weavers are white trash.

The Weavers are loud and roudy, but never seemed to be rude to me. I'd love to know what went on that we didn't see.

1. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
Hmmm, I'm actually disliking the Schroeder's more and more. Can you say SNOBS? First of all, to call a family White Trash to a national publication is Low Class. If the Weaver's were so poor that they had to wear $2 flip flops than why would you expect them to help you out during Katrina. My DD wears $2 flipflops everywhere and I can't get her to stop but that's not the defining characterization of white trash. And btw Char I think your son knows very well who he called a B!tch during the race and it wasn't his sister, although she seems to follow in good-ole stepmoms footprints pretty well.


Just my opinion.

4. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
Still gotta defend the Schroeders here (annoying as Stassi may be).

I took their comments about flip-flops & short-shorts as disbelief of how impractically the Weavers were dressed - not a commentary on wardrobe budget.

If you were going on a race around the country/world, wouldn't you wear sensible shoes and pants/shorts that stayed out of your arse? And sensible shoes don't have to be $200 sneakers.

And it was TVGuide that pegged the Weavers as the post-hurricane hold-outs - Dad Schroeder tried to back off that point. (although Stassi - annoying as ever - didn't soften it at all)

Besides, from what I've seen, the Weavers are trashy -- and not because of any flip-flops.

You don't have to be poor to be trash, and
You don't have to have money to have class.

In my opinion, the families who call other families 'white trash' deserve to lose.
I've been suprised at some of the negativity on this race.
I'd have expected a better outlook from the families, but from the the personalities of some, they were probably picked for their less than love of mankind mouths.

The flip flops I lived in all summer and even a good bit of this fall so far were $1 specials from Walmart. Guess I'm white trashier than those other guys =)

2. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
Also backed up in the "Finish Line" internet show (like "Survivor Live"). (RNO recap at: http://www.realitynewsonline.com/cgi-bin/ae.pl?mode=1&article=article5804.art&page=1 )

The Schroeders talk about EVERYONE on the race getting along really well & being friends...except one team. They didn't name the team initially, but it was pretty obvious & they did eventually talk about the Weavers.

Something I found compelling -- the Schroeders watched the last episode with the PAOLOS (!!!), with whom they are also friends. I would have expected the other teams to view the Paolos as kind of a Jonathan/Victoria team...

But instead it's the Weavers that apparently NO ONE liked. It's not just the Schroeders -- we've heard other teams talk negatively about the Weavers too. Yes, Stassi seemed to be a bit obsessed, but she definately wasn't alone in her opinion.

Something must have happened at the pit stops that we didn't see. Maybe the Weaver girls said something nasty about Stassi and that started it all. I'm not a big fan of the Weavers, but they don't seem to be any worse than some of the other teams.

Thanks for the link. The Weavers are not like any Christians I have ever known-since they don't help out families (that they know) who are in need. Maybe charitable Christianity is not part of their cult.

8. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
TAR is very good at editing...makes it hard to know how nice or nasty a team really is. Having said that, the Schroeders and the Linzs have made some pretty unpleasant comments about other teams, in particular the Weavers. The Weavers on the other hand come across as a very close, if slightly nutty family (and nutty can be good).

In addition, Mom Weaver takes a parental role - kind of appropriate, no? Dad Bransen's limp chuckle when his daughter flashed the Linzs looked a wee bit slimy - speaking as a father of 3: not too much leadership or fatherliness in that man.

The Schroeders like other teams in past TAR seasons have a case of bad sport/sore loser syndrome, The Weavers where a team they thought was beneath them in skill and I guess social standing so it ticked them off during the race when the Weavers would pass them and it ticked them off even more when they got eliminated before them.

Well, if that is the case, then I am a poor sport and loser also, because I can't stand the hypocrits. If I hear them ask God to help them find one more thing, I will reach through the TV and beat that mom with her own bible.

I'm with Lisa0116.

And at the risk of sounding like a broken record....

The Schroeders are NOT the only team that seems to dislike the Weavers.

The Weavers ARE the ONLY team I've heard other families complaining about.

Clearly there is plenty of stuff they're not showing us.

Actually, it was the Weavers who got upset with the Linz family for their banter while Rolly was at bat (heybatterbatterbatter). The Weavers said they just say encouraging things. For example, when they encouraged the Linz's boat driver to go slowly earlier in the leg.

If you can't take it, don't dish it out. The Weavers seem to think it's acceptable for them to yell things when other teams are completing tasks but take offense when something is yelled while they do. Hypocrites.

Ahhh, I missed that. I didn't realize that Rolly was the one up to bat when she said that. I agree that there must be something more to the Weavers than we are allowed to see.


ETA: That makes the Linz's reaction on the bus make sense now!

17. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
Here's what I think ('cause I know you're all just dying to hear my opinion!)

First off, let me preface my post by saying I really hate a lot of things about the Weavers. They are at the bottom of my love list consistantly. The mom needs to stop asking the Lord for everything and those girls need to quit their irritating ways.

That said, I'm going to defend them here! Who the EFF are the Schroeders to even make an effin' statement about who did or did not help them??? What do the Weavers owe them at all??? Perhaps the Weavers (who is a family with a single widowed mom raising 3 teens on a teacher's salary alone) were not in a position to help them!!!

Why should the Weavers feel obligated to them at all when all the Scroeders did while they were on the race was b!tch about "THE FLORIDA TEAM!!!" and how they have to beat "THE FLORIDA TEAM!!!" and how the Schroeder boy shouldn't even speak to Rolly Weaver, etc. WTF was that???

If I was hated like that, I certainly would think twice about helping those who hated me like that.

Just because you are on a reality show together doesn't mean you would help out others who were on the show with you!


PFFFTTT! TO THE EFFIN' SCHROEDERS!!! I'd be greatful anyone helped me at all!

>>I think Dad Schroeder made a comment to that effect.<<

Sort of -- he definitely tried to NOT blame the Weavers for anything.
If you read the actual interview, it's TVGuide that brings up the subject, based on something the Rogers family told them. Dad Schroeder really tried to back away from it.
Stassi, of course, was a brat.


TVGuide.com: The Rogers family told us that all but one of this season's teams rallied to help you after Katrina. Is it safe to say that the holdouts were the Weavers?
Mark: In all fairness, I don't even know if they know our address or phone number. Who's to say that had they known where we were, they wouldn't have done something? I don't want to make a general statement like that, that everybody helped but them.
Stassi: But it's safe to say it was the Weavers.

I would have to agree with you on this one. I know that my family and I are very giving people but often we are not in a financial position to give, despite our desire to do so. So without saying whether or not the Weavers had the desire, they may not have had the means. (and there are lots of ways to give to the relief efforts even if they didn't specifically help out the Schroders) I can only imagine how difficult it must be to raise 3 kids on your own.

I don't know about being a widowed mom (who is a teacher that doesn't even know which are the Great Lakes), but I DO know that Social Security sends those kids (and their mom) checks once a month. It is called a parental death benefit. Salary plus government checks equals more money than I make to support my family. I think they could afford to help in some way-unless of course they know how creepy and nasty they had been to the other teams during the race (which would make them hang their heads and hide out in shame). In addition, if they didn't have life insurance on a race car driver before his death, then that was just plain stupid!!!

Even if they are the winners, they wouldn't receive the money until the final show aired on TV. Although I'm not condoning their lack of support, If they didn't have anything to give at that time, they still wouldn't have anything to give until the final show.

They could, however, at least called or offered emotional support to the Schroeders, even though in my book they weren't deserving of it by the way they acted as well.

Who cares how much they get for Social Security? I'm sure it's a lot less than what their dad would be making if he were still alive. He was not a race car driver, he was clearing off debris when he was killed, he worked for Nascar at Daytona. So what if they did or didn't have life insurance, and if they did they should give it to the Schroeders? Rebecca is 19 anyway, so it's not as if they get SS benefits for her.

...and really, who cares if she is a teacher who doesn't know what the Great Lakes are? There are plenty of teachers who don't know things.

As I said, I do not like the Weavers at all (and there is a whole lot to bash about them), but the issue here is not how much money they have (or get monthly), it's that they didn't help the Schroeder's.

You know what? The Schroeder's lost a house and their stuff. A house can be rebuilt and stuff can be replaced, but the Weavers will never have their husband/dad back.


ETA: and you know what? The Schroeders would also be stupid if they didn't have flood insurance!

" ...and really, who cares if she is a teacher who doesn't know what the Great Lakes are? There are plenty of teachers who don't know things."

I care. That is deplorable, inexcusable, and a national embarassment. Maybe she is not the only ignorant teacher in this country, but that doesn't make it any better. And don't forget that she also didn't know if Pennsylvania was a state or a city. And wasn't she also confused about Washington DC being a state? Teachers ought to be educated, and many fifth graders would know more of this sort of basic, basic, basic geography than she does. How does an idiot like that graduate high school, let alone college?

My point was that is not the issue of this discussion.

Her ignorance about Geography has nothing to do with her family not helping the Schroeders after Katrina.

I don't know about you, but if I had spent a good deal of time with a bunch of families on a race and one of them were in trouble, I would help. They should help if for no other reason than they SAY they are Christians. How charitable is it for CHRISTIANS who ask God for everything from finding clues to (probably) toilet paper not to help someone (who they know personally) in need?? Did they even pray for they Schroeders?? I bet they didn't. Gimme a break-those are not Christians.

The shows are made up of a few minutes of dialogue from hours and hours, and the producers are looking over every square inch for stuff that gets everyone's panties in a wad. Like many of us, there are those who have friends and family members recently affected by natural disasters, illness, etc. and all need help. TV Guide got hold of some gossip (not mentioning any names of course), and created a controversy out of it. What we've been shown of the Weavers, is an attempt to paint ALL Christians as self-righteous, Bible thumping, stupid, shallow hypocrits, based on this one family's performance on a "reality" show.

No. At least for me, it didn't paint ALL Christians in that light. It has highlighted a type of self-styled Christian that is similar to some others that I have met. (And, I'll admit some of that may be due to editing, but I'll also discount some - not all - of what I assume will be the eventual outcry on their part when they see the controversy eventually. Hindsight about your behaviours is always instructive, & self-preservation is almost always primary.)

You'll note the lack of quote marks around the word "Christian", above. I can believe that they think they really are acting as a Christian should. IMHO, many, if not most, that characterise themselves publicly in devout religious terms, insisting that they live up to, and stand by, whatever the tenets of their religion may be, will be found, upon close inspection, wanting on some aspect. The Deity, whatever you choose to call him/her/it, seems to have a dislike of that kind of hubris.

Reality TV, and the editing, just makes it more obvious. Perhaps that's the redeeming aspect of RTV. When faults are exposed and made obvious, some learn from what they see - participants, or not - and adjust their behaviors, accordingly.

First of all, Flood insurance does NOT cover Hurricane damage! I know that sounds crazy, but I live in Florida and this was one of the biggest complaints from home owners last year. Not only that, but people who live below sea level and who are prone to floods are not even eligible for insurance. It's gotten quite bad down here in that aspect.

As far as SS benefits go. I can attest to the fact that most people are worth more dead than alive. It's just a fact. My brother in law died of a heart attack (49 yrs old) earlier this year. The man was lucky to bring home $1000 a month, and that's on a good month. Now my sister gets social security benefits in the amount of $2100 (tax free) from the gov't each month. She's sitting prettier than she ever would have if he were living. Of course they would rather have him than the money, but in most instances, SS death benefits are quite good...

All that being said, I don't like the Weavers, but it's their business and their business only why they didn't help the Schroeders. I'm a Christian, but I can't afford to contribute to each and every relief effort. Maybe she already gave all she could to the Red Cross or something. That's her business...

Well, at least she is not on welfare, eating bon bons all day.

33. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
Did the Schroeders send the Weavers any money to help them out with the death of their Dad? Everyone has misfortunes, but why single the Weavers out for something like that? Just because they were co-competitors on the race? Did Phil give any money? Bertram? The cameramen?

Kudos to the Rogerses for helping out, but singling out those people who don't help shows a lack of class on the Schroeders' part. Even sayiing "every family but one helped" certainly invites a question about which one did not.

That being said (and I missed last week's episode), I have not seen anything yet that shows why the other teams hate the Weaverses. There must be unshown stuff. But the Weaverses consist of a mom and three kids -- so blaming a family means that 75% of the Schroederses complaint is that three kids did not give you a donation after the hurricane.

That happened before the race and before the families knew each other. I would think if you know someone personally and claim to be Christian, that you would help them out. Whether or not it is financial or moral support.

Actually, there are some Christian Science followers out there that believe prayer can accomplish anything and if it doesn't then it was God's Will. How many stories do we hear of parents refusing medical attention for their sick children and instead pray for them, only to have them become worse or even die when treatments exist for their ailments. So, by the Weaver's praying for the Schroeder's (if they did) they may feel that there is nothing better they could possible do for them.


As an aside, I am in no way condoning the Weaver's behavior.

The least the Weavers could have done was take up a collection at their church for the Schroders.

that EVERY other family helped the Schroeders in some way or another, whatever their means. I think it's telling of what kind of Christians the Weavers really are. They only help people who like them? I think the thing it really reveals is that they are stupid, which I think is why most viewers don't like them in the first place.

No one is commenting on the fact that the Schroder family is really acting ungrateful in this interview. Oh we are staying in an apartment that my prestigious "hotel" (Char's work place) allowed us to be in. It's a bit on the small side (1200 sq feet) and we are back to work for the prestigious hotel but we don't need money (Be quiet Stacci, WE DO NEED HELP AKA MONEY still says Char). Ughh, these people sound ungrateful and like snobs. Possibly the worst combination.

Let's be honest. Stacci hates the Florida team because she is jealous of the girls (or at least the really cute blonde one) on it. And Hunter PAHLEEZE. You were SO calling your step mom the b word.

What if the Weavers win? I know, gag, but 'what if'...?
Any other time a team reached the finish line there's been loud cheering and applause, smiles and hugs.. What would happen this time? The Weavers aren't the only team to make enemies during the race but they're the only ones I can remember to be almost despised by every other team in the race. How much bribery of the waiting teams would it take to get the cheers and applause for them at the finish line? Even if they edit in fake cheering, the body language and behavior on screen would tell it all. Should the unthinkable happen, I'd love to see how it unfolds.

44. "RE: More on the Schroder/Weaver feud"
My thoughts are as follows, and I'm going to try and give an opinion on everything involved in this thread.

Whether the Weavers were in a position to donate: Unless you were living on bread and water, you should have at least given SOMETHING (and a prayer doesn't count Even 10$ would have prevented this whole controversy. I agree about the whole social security thing, they must be getting more than enough money to live off of from the dad's death. Which is further proven because those girls are anything but slim.

Weavers being despised by everyone: Guaranteed there is something else that CBS isn't showing us as to why so much hate is being directed towards them. Maybe it has something to do with the "we were raised to not trust anyone but our family and god" Perhaps at the pitstop they go into recluse and remain completely anti-social.
Or maybe the Weavers decide to say what they say in the Insider videos to some of the teams faces. We're just going to have to wait for the winners interview. It oughta be revealed then.

I am so frickin sick of the Weavers saying they don't understand how the other teams are playing the game. They're playing it to win it thank you very much...you guys are playing to get knocked out ASAP.

Who do I like better between the Schroeders and the Weavers? Stassi drives me up a wall with her attitude...not to mention she's even uglier than the Widow's two daughters. I could tolerate the rest of her family though...Hunter calling them white trash was classic, and it fit so well.

Meanwhile, I absolutely HATE the Weavers. They're the obnoxious ones. (See "I'm so frickin sick" paragraph above) Plus, who the hell brings flip-flops onto The Amazing Race? Christie in season 5 wore sandals occasionally and the Godlewski's got some kinda sandal sneaker combination on the go...but flip flops??? I hope you guys lose a foot race to the million. If you make it that far, which I hope you don't.

Its almost like getting run over by a car or a train. Or in this case...race car and Amish Buggy. They're both bad...but one is more tolerable than the other.

Good point by whoever said "what if they win" that would be the the strangest ending in TAR history if you ask me. Even if they make it to the final 3...it would still be the most awkward welcome ever. I'd be particularly interested to see the Schroeders reaction.

I'd like to smack the Weavers upside their heads with their hymnals. Then make them sing 50 verses of "They'll Know We Are Christians By Our Love". Then have a park ranger give them the complete history of the Grand Canyon while the Gadzookis throw food at them and us Linz boys (and Air Biscuit) chant "hey-batta-batta-batta, suh-wing batta".
