"Time to Serve Up Some Hater-Ade on Lynn and Alex!!"
The Whiners. Can they please just get over Rob and Amber? Seriously, now that Susan and Patrick are gone they are the most annoying team to me. They aren't even funny or entertaining.
Wasn't it ironic that they went from first to fifth and Romber went from fifth to first? Love it!

I'm with you. I want to love Lynn and Alex and want to hate Romber, but they are making it diffiuclt for me.

Maybe a little meditation is in order. OOOHHHMMM...let go of the hate....OOOHHMM.

I agree. They obviously have something against R/A. Not sure if it is from Survivor or TAR but they need to move on. Their whole act is getting on my nerves. It could be editing but they don't seem to be nice people. The do treat each other well though. That's about the only good thing I can say about them.

Well, Rob did make it quite clear that he is a bit of a homophobe during his first season on Survivor during a confrontation that he had with John, the male nurse. So, it could be a combination of the general dislike for Romber exhibited by many of the Racers and a particular dislike based on Rob's previous attitude toward gay people.

Whatever it is, I agree that they should focus more on their own game and leave the Romber bashing to the rest of us.

I guess I'm a little disappointed in their behavior. It seems pretty immature to me, whether Rob is homophobic or not. The problem for me is that I WANTED to like them, but all they do is annoy me. Their whiney queen behavior is somewhat stereotypical and it's not a very positive representation of gays.

15. "RE: Time to Serve Up Some Hater-Ade on Lynn and Alex!!"
I can understand where you are coming from, Tahj.

I refuse to like Lynn and Alex just because they happen to be gay. I'm not going to cheer for the gay team any more than I would cheer for a white team, a young team, an all-male team, or any other team that shares my personal attributes.

I had an initial knee-jerk negative reaction to Lynn and Alex. "Are these really the gay guys that I want representing me to the rest of America?" I asked myself. I thought about it for a while and realized that yes I do want Lynn and Alex on the television, whether they make me - or others - uncomfortable or not. A couple seasons ago we got to see Chip and Reichen, two athletic gay guys, win the Amazing Race and I was glad to see them demonstrate that not all gay guys fit a particular stereotype. But, dammit, I'm not going to force every gay guy on reality television to be slome sort of model queer, the gay ambassador to red state America. Lynn and Alex have just as much right to be both respected and bashed for who they are as anybody else. If I can't find it in my heart to be accepting and tolerant of Lynn and Alex, how can I expect the rest of "mainstream" America to look at gay people as just people?

Yes, I worry that Lynn and Alex will reinforce stereotypes because some viewers are not critical enough in their assessment and think that they are substitutes for all gay men. But others won't. I refuse to think that all middle-aged mothers are shrews like Patrick's mommy; not all white guys are abusive and ageist like Ray; and not all older women talk as much as Gretchen. That being the case, why should I think that all gay guys act like Lynn and Alex...?

Very well said HD. Your attitude is quite rational. Lynn and Alex happen to be gay, but much of their behavior has nothing to do with that, I think. There will be some guilt by association, however, and it will reflect negatively on gays in general. But you're right, not everyone will think that way.

My cringe meter goes off the scale when I watch them and I find it embarrassing, but that's my problem, not necessarily anyone else's. I wish I had your attitude. It would make it much easier for me.

We all need to have HD's attitude, about a lot of things.

Speaking as a straight guy, I don't attribute Lynn's nastiness to being gay, just to being an asshole. I do attribute some of his reactions to Rob to be due to Rob's attitude toward gays that HD mentioned above, so there is a link there. But the stuff he said about M&G and U&J last night is just asshatted-ness, not gay-ness.

Yeah, considering that a few weeks and several off-color comments (no pun intended) have taken place since I wrote the post you are referencing, let me clarify that I accept Lynn and Alex despite their flamboyance which might make me uncomfortable at times (partially because it is so over the top and partially because it might be a little bit of a reflection of me). I would not encourage anybody, however, to accept Lynn's ignorant and intolerant views of other people, whether they be Racers or locals (and I sincerely hope that those attitudes are not a reflection of me at all).

Flamboyance = not necessarily bad
Racism = get Lynn off my TV and expand his social circle a little (or a lot)

More annyoing that Ray? The man who made my mother so angry with his insults that she wanted to challenge him to a checkers match?

I forgave Lynn and Alex when they made the STD comparison. ROFLMAO. When they stop whining, they can be funny.

I can also see how, having made it through the auditions and being selected, it would be kind of a bummer for the "regular" TAR racers to find this smug young couple who were already sort of famous and kind of cute and who had ALREADY WON A MILLION, more or less, were there to steal your thunder. I would feel peevish, too.

On the other hand, I agree with Tahj. Whine whine whine. And it may negatively impact their play.

"kind of cute"

I think that is the most accurate and honest description of Romber's physical appearance that I have read on here, Ginger. Neither of them is ugly, but they are only a couple of degrees better than being "plain" - yet so many people want to pretend that they are both gorgeous. Whatever.

So, then, why aren't they treating POW/WOW (K/R) badly? I'm sure they were probably recruited to race by CBS, too. Ratings are ratings in any case. I think L/A secretly have crushes on Rob ala HS - I like that girl so I'll be extra annoying to her. Maybe they want Romber to notice them, which would make them special.

Gaining fame from being on a reality show is one thing. Gaining fame from being a prisoner of war in Iraq is quite another. Gaining fame from being a beauty queen is...eh, never mind.

I think L/A secretly have crushes on Rob ala HS

Trust me. Very few gay men fall in love with straight men, especially when (a) they're already in a committed relationship or (b) the man in question has made homophobic comments in the past.


Plus, like the posters above said -- Rob's not that cute.

"Very few gay men fall in love with straight men, especially when (a) they're already in a committed relationship"

I know that, I was being sarcastic. My point was that in a twisted way they are a little starstruck and the only way they can get Romber to notice them is to become annoying. It's interesting that the bait hasn't been taken to date.

Straight single female with raging hormones here, and I actually think Rob is pretty ugly.

Then again, I'm kinda biased that way... tend to see beauty in people whom I like or think have inner beauty also.

OTOH, I don't like Amber either but I do think she's very pretty. Not as gorgeous as Elisabeth from S2 though...

Now just a minute! I (beat Romber) do so not (beat Romber) focus on (beat Romber) Romber too much!

I hate The Whiners too! Those two are the most annoying, unoriginal losers I've seen since Susan and Patrick!

I think they bash Romber so they can get camera time. They have NOTHING else to say, and what they do say seems so rehersed and forced, it's not the least bit funny.

I can just picture them during rest stops. They probably go over the lame sound bites they're going to give the next leg.

The STD joke? Tasteless and rude. If Rob would have said that? I can see all the hate-posts now. *rolls eyes*

These two are the biggest phoneys ever on a reality show. I can't wait until they are eliminated!

If you take some time out of Romber-worshiping, I think you'll find they've made plenty of pompous remarks like "everyone wants to be like us" and "2 first places down, many more to come". Also, the constant smirking at other teams and subtle snide comments eg "how's your stomach" to the 4lb meat eaters on the plane. I'm sure there're more, but that's all I can remember right now and I don't wanna go back and watch their smirking faces again just to find more of their pompous comments.

Well, that's ok then... sorry about the misunderstanding. But I still disagree that ALL the contestants want to be like Romber per se. Yes, they probably all want to be 1st, which I agree is a good thing coz otherwise they shouldn't even be on the race in the first place... but it doesn't mean that they want their lives/characters to be exactly like Romber. If they do, then there's something wrong with the other contestants too!

Hi!

Hmm... well I don't think Romber being confident about themselves is close to being worse than teams who call them an STD or someone speaking harshly about old people. So far, they haven't said bad things about other people and yet people make such biting remarks like the STD and "dumb as a rock" thing about them.

Originally, I thought I would dislike Rob and Amber because of many of the posters here and since they were on Survivor (A show that I haven't cared enough to watch), but Rob and Amber's good naturedness and lack of whining won them over for me. Things could always change, but they are playing the game and not focusing their dislike for anyone in particuar.

Pompous remarks are a far cry from mean spirited way L/A handle themselves. Of the three comments you mentioned two were general comments and not aimed at any team or disparaging any team. The third was actually said to their faces without regard to the consequences. Is there something wrong with being confident on TAR? Do all the teams have to be humble to be accepted?

When L/A walk up to Romber and make a comment like the STD one, to their face, then I may have a little more respect for them.

Agreed - L/A are getting more and more annoying with their focus on Romber and their constant mean remarks about Romber. They were previously top on my love list, but are gradually slipping too on my list.

No, there's nothing wrong with confidence... but there's confidence, and then there's arrogance. The difference is subtle, but still there. Kris and Jon from the last season were confident about the way they raced. Romber... well, Rob in particular... have reeked of arrogance since their Survivor days. That's why I don't really like them.

Having said that, the arrogance is a lot more toned down compared to Survivor, and in particular, S4. I am (grudgingly) starting to respect them more and more.

I agree Loree.
At first I thought they were a fun team, and their game comments amusing, but more and more they focus their snarkiness and bad attitude on other players instead of on the game.

I don't care who their comments are directed to, acting that way towards any other team is bad sportsmanship, whiney, and not fun to watch.

36. "CAN YOU PEOPLE NOT READ?"
The purpose of this thread is to bash Lynn and Alex. Is that such a difficult concept to grasp? If y'all want to love on them, GO TO FANATICS. Get the hell over the Romber freakouts, please. This is getting old, old, old. If you want to bash Rob and Amber, then start a thread that says Let's bash Rob and Amber. So far, no one has done that. There have been numerous threads to debate them or discuss them, but no one seems to want to just bash them outright. Instead y'all want to jump down other people's throats. Go play in your own threads and leave those of us who find the whiners among the racers ALONE, please. I looked and there is no Lynn and Alex love thread, but there IS a Romber thread...and it has been hijacked and smacked with off-topic stuff as well. I'm not one to be a PITA and alert stuff to the mods, but this is ridiculous.

Thank you Tahj, for starting it. I was actually planning on doing one last week and I got sidetracked. I have loads to say about the whiney baby whiners who are the most immature couple on television, but now I'm so pissed off I can't even type coherent thoughts. I was expecting lots of fun like we had with Susan and Patrick and instead it became yet another same-old same-old Romber is evil thread. I didn't get online at 5:30 to read that crap again.

FULL ON APPLAUSE AND STANDING OVATION
for anotherkim and tahj!

so let me start the Lynn/Alex bashing again:

my gay friends who watch TAR with me hate them too. they wouldn't want to be friends with them cuz they feel they have a mean streak in them. nevermind the whining cuz my gay friends say they like whining all the time cuz it makes them feel better. so coming from a straight guy who hangs/works with gay men we all saw it from the start of the race. Lynn and Alex are trying too hard to play the "entertaining gay couple" role we have seen in past seasons that thay are over compensating. Because they aren't as interesting as the other gay racers in the past. hence they are incredibly ANNOYING!

and they do have a mean streak in them. but unlike (place racer flavor of the month here) who shows what he truly is, they pretend that they're all good intentioned and all. hypocrites.

oh and my gay clothing designer friend is telling me now to type in that they don't even dress well. he feels misrepresented and wants them to be eliminated asap. they don't provide any more entertainment value than the rest of the racers aside from (type in racer who must not be named here).

Bashers, bashers, please don't disappoint me...I know you're creative enough to remember that there are other people in this Race and bash accordingly.

Heheh. The "permission to run over a clown" comment was just

But I'm on the Lynn/Alex bashing bandwagon. (I sorta mentioned
them in passing when I posted in the Susan/Patrick thread.)

I brought up that the Happy Boys are losing favor with me due
to the Romber obsession they seemed to have picked up from
Patrick.

Before Lynn and Alex went into "Must destroy Romber!" mode, I
really enjoyed them. Now, they're turning into my new Villain
Team. They're still amusing, but now they've added incredibly
annoying into the mix.

I am very sorry. Very often I start reading a thread and then completely forget what the title of the thread is and just respond to what people have written. Have bashed Racers many times before in Fanatics for example, and praised others in Bashers. Nobody has made a big deal of it in the past, so being a relatively new poster, I didn't think it was that big a deal either. But since it seems like a HUGE deal to you, then I'll stop bashing Romber in this thread now. Believe me - I really did get carried away and just forgot what the thread was about. Thanks for the reality check - in bashing Romber, I've come out sounding as whiny as Lynn/Alex. So I don't think I could in all good conscience join in bashing whiny Lynn/Alex! (though my like of them is slipping lower and lower too)... not for the moment anyway...

It's one thing to do it once or to drop a funny one-liner or two in a rant or a love thread. It's another thing to do it over and over and over (and I am not talking about anyone specifically). It's just that EVERY time we try to talk about any team other than Rob and Amber, it always comes back to how evil Rob and Amber are and that just leads to the ugly bickering about them that is never going to accomplish anything.

Let the other teams have their moments in the sun without the eternal shadow of Rob and Amber looming over them.

Oh, you naive little optimist. You really think that Romber will be forgotten once gone?

The episode right after their Philimination will be filled with comments about how glad the other teams are that Romber are gone, and how pleased they are that they lasted longer than Romber. Each subsequent episode will include at least one team commenting on the fact that "we're here and they're not, nyah nyah".

Way to go Kimmah.
But before I let the Romber jacking of this thread go ( I know, sorry) can I just mention that bashing Rob and Amber is fine, and expected on the Basher board, but that the repeated bashing of Rob's fans has gotten over the top.

I see statements like "Rob Fanbots" and "Rob-worshipers" and "Rapid Rob fans" all over the boards and it's being used to bash those posters who find this team entertaining.

It's getting old and it's insulting to other members.

Okay, said my bit, done now.

49. "RE: Time to Serve Up Some Hater-Ade on Lynn and Alex!!"
Unfortunately for all the gay teams they live under the shadow of the original gay team(sorry I can't remember their name). The difference between originals and L/A was that they loved just being in on the game. They were fun to watch. Nearly getting eliminated every week but somehow pulling through and having a great time doing it. IMO they were roll models, not just for gays, but for everyone.
I also remember there was one girl team that knew they were last so the had dinner and took their time.
It's too bad that L/A and most of the other teams don't seem to have this attitude.

I completed an entire post and I didn't even mentioned ... whew.

Team Guido did set a high standard, but I'm a huge Danny and Oswald fan. Those guys knew how to have fun and make snarky comments while running the Race.

I was sitting here trying to remember their names. They were great! I loved it when they went shopping while everyone else was scurrying around. Heck they even got a hotel to give them a car and driver to use.

Lynn and Alex could use some pointers and manner lessons from Danny and Oswald.

Lynn and Alex will NEVER live up to Danny and Oswald's cool, calm way of playing the game and having fun at the same time. All those times when they went shopping to re-focus? Priceless!

There - not one mention of --- from me, either. Better? ;p

I was gonna join in on the Danny/Oswald loving by saying how well they'd schmooze with the locals etc etc, but you're right... Danny/Oswald deserve a whole new thread to themselves and not to be lumped in with Lynn/Alex or anyone else from the current season of TAR, imo. Definitely one of the top 3 all-time favourite Racers on my list. In fact, I think they deserve a whole show to themselves - they were the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

I've hated these two since week one. So I am thrilled to have found a place to vent about this. I don't get their obession with Romber. The game is called the amazing race, and the point is to race around the world the fastest. Your goal should not be to beat any one team it should be to beat all the teams. Stop obsesseing about what Romber is doing and pull your heads out of each others arses long enough to play the game. Otherwise you'll both be gone faster than you can say.... well I don't know what exactly.... but my point is that you'll be gone super fast.... not that that is a bad thing at all. I would actually really like it if you were gone.
Lynn and Alex, I don't care how
Lynn and Alex, will you PLEASE GO NOW!!

(I am of course paraphrasing the late, but great, Dr. Suses (however that's spelled))

I like them. I agree they are not helpign themselves by focusing on Rob and Amber, but they've been pro-active and are using their disliek as a way to drive themselves on instead just something to whine about. They seem to have a decent workign relationship and when they're not talking about Rob and Amber, they seem to be having fun

Really? It's abusive to take someone else's cab and it's fine to make spiteful remarks? Thank you for the morality lesson. I wouldn't have known those little tidbits without your input because I have never said or thought that before.

I can like Lynn and Alex even if they made a tacky, hateful comment. I freely admit it was tacky and hateful. You love Rob and Amber, does that mean you think hateful homophobic remarks are fine while insulting another team isn't?

Not directed at them, but they were made in the public eye and directed to a minority group Lynn and Alex belong to.

But if you want a specific example of Rob saying something about Lynn and Alex:

"Lynn may be able to control Alex like a farm boy, but not me"

I thought 'farm boy' was an odd phrase to use, so I googled it. It refer to a specific type of homosexual bondage porn

After last night I hate these two more than ever. I couldn't believe the hateful comments that came spewing out of their mouths last nite when they were lost in Johanseberg (sp?). So many racial slurs... I don't know where to start.

And after all that they tried to take a moral high road by ragging on Romber for not stoping. Please...... You're no better than anyone else.

Before I thought they were just petty and envious. Now I just think that they are two ugly human beings.

72. "RE: Time to Serve Up Some Hater-Ade on Lynn and Alex!!"
Hardly. Lynne and Alex are like the rash that just won't go away. At first it's just a harmless itch and the scratching is strangely pleasant. But soon it gets more enflamed and you're ready to cut off your arm just to be rid of it.
Sure, I can jump on board with everyone else and say I'm SO over Romber and the "win at all costs" attitude. Editing aside, ignoring the wreck without somuch as a window roll-down or even saying, "I hope they're all right." The crack about Meredith pushing Gretchen down was really low, too. Great t.v., bad for the space-time continuum as they continue to upset the balance of the earth with evil.

BUT...I really have to say I'm totally over Lynn and Alex. I usually root for the gays and the oldsters (I'm in the former group now and will eventually be in the latter, so I have to have some empathy--there but for the grace of god go I...). But GIMME A BREAK! I thought Reichen and Chip were awesome (and cute) and of course Team Guido rocked. But mincing and flailing aside (and tired, stereotypical bit**y quotes that aren't even funny) their racist, insensitive comments were really over the top. They come from West Hollywood, which isn't really too far from Compton (geographically, anyway). It makes me think of the scene in Hairspray when Penny Pingleton's mother is dropped off in the "colored" part of Baltimore and she clings to her purse, screaming and cowering (sorry for those of you who haven't seen it, but you really must). They really need to get a better sense of social conscience--how ironic for them. What an embarrassment! Go back to the safety of Maxfield and Hamburger Mary's and leave the rest of the world to others.

On the OTHER hand--what a great job Gretchen and Meredith did (even though luck had a lot to do with it). When I think about Marshall and Lance (and the whining about the knee and quitting) and Hayden's whining about her sore fingers, what an awesome thing to see Gretchen pushing on. Don't know how long they'll hold out, but more power to them!

LAST EDITED ON 03-30-05 AT 11:12 PM (EST)

<obsession> sorry for the typo


it seems like their main goal in life is to beat romber. could they just please get over romber? i mean are they that obsessed?

they also seem to be self-righteous. "oh look we stopped to "help" (at least until romber could see us hhelping and doing a good deed while they just drive on) <rolls eyes>. like l/a would have stopped for romber.... what good samaritans they are (im oozing sarcasm)

could they just please get over romber? and by the way romber didn't have to stop. they were concerned but they also knew that there was a race at hand.

the only good thing i can say about them is that they seem really motivated.... motivated to beat romber as opposed to winning the race

I can not stand to watch these two vile, wicked little fat monkeys parading around my flat screen tv too much longer.

What did Rob and Amber do to them that has their panties all tied in knots? What is with these two?

Please dear God!

PLEASE!

Do your thing and make it so that Lynn and Alex are eliminated.

Thank you Jesus, Amen. In God and Bush we trust.

The other gay kid wanted a piece of ROMBER too. He said he wanted to be the one holding bragging rights on being the person to eliminate Rob and Amber. This poor kid must of thought Rob just fell off a turnip truck or something. Did this kid actualy think Rob was that stupid? LMAO!

Rob is very wise.

Silly little rivals.
When will you learn?

I thought the CBS Insider video this week with a Lynn and Alex rant about Romber was quite amusing -- Lynn in particular can't come up with enough bad things to say about Romber so eventually he starts complaining that they are Northeast "new money." LMAO.

Much as I love Romber, Lynn and Alex crack me up too and I am hoping both teams remain in it, bickering til the end. Much more fun than the interteam bickering of many teams from last season and Ray/Deana from this one.

80. "RE: Rob & Amber = "New Money""
Lynn in particular can't come up with enough bad things to say about Romber

This reminds me of something I wanted to ask. Rob said something that struck me, something about "Lynn may be able to work Alex but not me."

I have a bad habit, when it comes to same-sex teams, of meshing them together in my mind and not really differentiating one from the other (I did the same with Brian/Greg, Debbie/Bianca, the hillbillies). I think it's because of the fast-paced nature of the show, plus a lot is done in voice-over and it's hard for my brain to register which voice is which that quickly.

But it's kind of funny. If you look at critiques of teams, you'll see a lot of splits among the opposite-sex couple teams (Jonathan=abusive/Victoria=victim, Rob=cunning/Amber=indecisive, Ray=see Jonathan/Deana=see Victoria, Hayden=shrew/Aaron=doormat, etc.) whereas same-sex teams are considered more as a unit. Honestly, if I put up a picture of Brian/Greg, how many of you could tell which is which? I couldn't. Or to those who could: What personality trait makes Greg different from Brian?

My main question is this, however. To those who've paid better attention: Is Lynn substantially more obnoxious than Alex?


You've enlightened me to this. I'm going to start paying better attention.

I still can't tell Brian and Greg apart. I even keep the Amazing Race window open during the show so I can refer to it...it doesn't help. I think Greg's face is a little fuller, but you can't see that if they have their backs to the camera.

Lynn and Alex seem equally obnoxious to me, but in different ways. Lynn seems a little more snarky (and not in a good way) and Alex seems a little more b!tchy. The sight of them skipping through the Cultural Center the other night cracked me up. I'm so over them and their comments, though. Maybe I'll just mute the TV when they are on.

Not only that, but it's also a fun way to suggest that the pitcher in the relationship is somehow more masculine (and thus better) than the catcher, like he's somehow "less gay." Some of the reactions to Lynn and Alex (just like some reactions to gay people in the real world) come from an interesting intersection of sexism and homophobia.

Be that as it may, even in gay culture the top tends to be seen as the more masculine and more dominant in the relationship, though not more gay. There is even some sexism and homophobia.

100. "RE: Rob & Amber = "New Money""
Yeah, I was basing my observations on the scholarly works I've read for Gender Studies courses.

Gay culture, from experience, can have its own strange little twists and turns - as you probably know as well. Personally, I always laugh at the gay guys who insist that their partner be "straight acting," whatever that means. If he's too "straight acting" (pronounced "self-loathing") then their sex life is going to be non-existent.

Lots of people made assumptions about who was the pitcher and who was the catcher about my ex and me - based on nothing other than who was taller!

That being the case - and to get back on topic - I wouldn't even hazard a guess about the particulars for Lynn and Alex, any more than I want too know what happens privately for Gretchen/Meredith, Crashboy/Lardette, or Romber.

The answer is yes, Ginger, and they probably do. However, my guess is that Lynn is more often the pitcher since he is more dominant of the two.

I just meant, it's funny how into "who's on top?" discussions regarding gay couples are when we don't really go there with hetero couples.




I like it on top.

91. "RE: Rob & Amber = "New Money""
Lynn is definately more cutting and nasty in his remarks than Alex.
I think he has been portrayed as the "leader" in the team.

Most teams seem edited with one member more dominate, by their quotes.

( That is not to say that the editing is really how these teams relate at home, just how they are portrayed for TV , as one member in the "leader" role.)

But yes, I think Lynn comes across as more obnoxious.

86. "A PRIME Example"
A PRIME example of how L&A's vindictiveness is geeting in the way of smart racing - in the first leg on 3/29, Ron and Kelly and the brothers shared a cab, thus saving both teams some money. OTOH, L&A got that big luxury van/cab/bus and kept it to themselves rather than sharing it with Rob and Amber. So they paid full price, rather than splitting the cost.

This extra money may or may not (probably won't) make a big difference, but it does illustrate that L&A are so fixated on hating Romber that they're not thinking through all they're options.

Lynn and Alex annoy the crap outta me! They are such hypocrites. At least with Rob, he is who he is and makes no apologies. Lynn and Alex are constantly looking down their noses at others. If it's not Romber, it's the people in Johannesburg.

I am going to LMAO when their Robsession causes them to make a stupid mistake and get Philiminated.

On another note- I'm a straight female and I think Amber is very pretty and Rob is handsome. I don't think Rob is a jerk, I think he has a very dry, sarcastic wit and doesn't take himself too seriously. Not nearly as seriously as everyone else seems to take him.

93. "RE: A PRIME Example"

Ahhh, the Cab.
So am I the only one who wished that L&A had been honest and said, " Rob, we don't want to share a cab with you! Our cab, kiss off!"
Instead of saying, " There's NO Room!"?

Seriously, why not say they didn't want him in their cab?
It's a race, they could have just said that.
Rob thought it was a bus, it looked like a bus.
But Lynn claimed there was no room, instead of stating the truth, which was that it was their cab, and they got to it first.

If you are going to be agressive, be agressive, not screechy passive agresssive. " No Rob, no Rob, no room!"

The high and mighty statement, (as they drove away) about how they would have shared with anyone but Rob, was dumb. There was no one but Rob asking for a ride, so it's easy to say. Plus it's a race, so they would be justified in refusing a cab share with any other team as well.


Just shows their character.

I know I am in the right thread now.
Lynn said something about Uchenna and Joyce that really hit a nerve. As Uchenna and Joyce were doing so well with the carrying objects on their heads.

Lynn said to Alex that Uchenna and Joyce's kind of people were born to carry things on their heads. OUCH!

So, I guess that Lynn doesnt think that Uchenna and Joyce can swim either, eh?

I think Lynn is such a big mouth bigot

They are just wrong.

107. "Nope, that's what they said"
Lynn said: "They were born to do this" They never said anything about Black people, African people or what not, just 'they.' There was also no scorn or contempt in L&A' voices.

I'm gonna give them a pass on this. I thought the Compton comments were ugly, but saying they were 'born to do _' of somebody who is stellar at a task' is a pretty generic compliment. Like someone is a 'born gymnast' or Ian McKellan was 'born to' play Gandalf or whatever sports star was 'born to the game'

Another thing to consider is that Lynn and Alex made the 'born to' comment because Uchenna and Joyce have excellent senses of balance and so something like the head balance would fit right in with their natural abilities. Uchenna can do running backflips, which requires an excellent sense of balance and Joyce has been shown doing roundhouse kicks and pivots with no problem. That sort of balance is a gift and you can be 'born to it' just like with any other sense. It's called kinesthetic awareness and scientists count it as a genetic thing

Okkaaaayy, just a few short weeks ago, people were reamed for bringing Rob and Amber into the Lynn and Alex thread. Now the instant that Rob looks good by comparison, I have 2 people jumping down my throat about Rob and Amber, and not Lynn and Alex: THE SUBJECT OF THE THREAD.

No, I don't give Lynn and Alex a pass for the comment about Meredith and Gretchen, but I was addressing the 'racist or not' comment about U&J, so that's what I did. Unlike some other people I could think of, I don't have to excuse and justify every single nasty thing a team does

Au contraire, mon fraire. I'm not jumping down your throat about Romber at all. I'm just pointing out that Lynn and Alex, THE SUBJECT OF THE THREAD, have been nasty to other racers, even if you give them a pass on the racist remark. You don't have to excuse anything, but I think I asked a fair question.

OK, OK, after some of the fighting on the last thread, I guess I'm a little touchy.

To answer your question, yes, Lynn and Alex were mean to say that 'stupid' comment about Meredith and Gretchen. They were also insensitive at best and downright racist at worst to make those comments about camels and chickens and Compton.

Would you like to have Meredith and Gretchen spank them as punishment ;)? I'd love to hear Gretchen's commentary during THAT

122. "How could it not be racial?"
They, meaning Uchenna and Joyce, were "born" to carry things on their heads? Let's see...They're in Africa, doing a task that is readily identifiable as the normal routine of Africans, Uchenna and Joyce are African-Americans, and Lynn coincidentally thinks they just happen to be generically "born to do it"? I doubt that seriously.

And the comment didn't sound terribly flattering as I heard it. As I wrote on another thread, the comment was voiced out of frustration with their own efforts, not observationally at the relative talents of U/J. Lynn says these things in situations where their own failure is hanging over them, whether it be getting lost in Johannesburg or an inability to balance baskets on their heads.

I can just picture Alex now wearing a pair of Lynns dirty thongs on his head. hahahhhaaa

Didn't TerriBlue already point out that they both have a penis, making them both a man in the relationship? (#85)

I took the use of the word "girl" to be slang as commonly used in some segments of the gay community. Lynn and Alex also use the word "bitch" a lot, when talking about men and women. They are playing with the words by putting a new gender valence on them.
