"The Romber Bashing Thread"
OK, somebody made a suggestion in another thread that there needed to be a thread specifically for bashing Romber - as a means of preventing the Romber hatred from infecting perfectly good threads intended for bashing other Racers.

Judging from the reactions to that suggestion, I get the impression that a certain level of frustration exists because so much of the conversation revolves around Romber. Fans of Romber don't want the "love Romber" threads littered with anti-Romber bashing, nor do they want threads for bashing other Racers to switch over to bashing Romber.

Keeping that in mind, this thread is exclusively for bashing Romber - no loving of Romber is allowed, no debating of Romber's supposed good points, supposed skill, supposed charm, supposed cleverness, supposed personality, or slightly above average looks - pure bashing of Romber (and ONLY Romber) only (because we do not need another CAN YOU PEOPLE NOT READ? intervention).

So, if you lvoe Romber, that's fine, but don't tell us about it here. Likewise, if you lvoe other Racers, take it elsewhere. The bashing of Romber may now commence.

Myself, I think I will have to puncture my ear drums if I have to hear that man-child exclaim "Holy Canoli" one more time.

I don't like the way the win all the time. It drives me freakin crazy. I hate the way they keep coming from last place to first too. I really wish at least one of the other teams were smarter so they could kick their #####.

How's that. ;)

This is just what we needed HD!

I am sick of them already.

I can't stand Rob's voice anymore.

... and if I could stick a horseshoe up his butt, believe me he would not be bragging about it!

Now, that would make him mug for the camera, wouldn't it?

Please, cram a horseshoe up there. His brain is lonely.

OK, here goes:

I hate the way the very existence of Romber on TAR divides TAR fans into 3 groups -- 1) those who loved Romber before they were on TAR, 2) those who did not love Romber at first but have grown to love them after four episodes, and 3) those who won't love them until later in the race

So...is this, like, an internment camp for Romber haters?

Actually -- I'm Romber-bashed out. I've got nothing. I really can't think of anything else to say about the arrogant, egomaniacal, homophobic, makes-you-want-to-slap-him smirk-bearing DAW who somehow went from sub-par Survivor player to Allstar to the most polarizing figure on TV not in the Bush administration.


If you don't like him now, wait until he's on "The Surreal Life 12" 5 years from now.

Thank you for my formal invitation, hon.

Rob is a tool. He's been a tool since Marquesas, and he's a tool now.

Get him off my tv. He's the new Poopert, except worse.

And Amber's probably the most boring person to ever be recorded on a regular television show. For THREE seasons. She's a clinger, and just like Rob, she's coastin' on luck.

The whole "Rob adressing the camera" thing, though...

::vomit::

He's as obsessed with himself as the other racers are.

When Lex/Kathy ignored their chance to get rid of the Amber part of Romber power duo and cut off Jerri, who was nowhere near as annoying in A.S.S. as she was in S2 and imo had proven her loyalty to them... that goes down in my books as one of the worst.moments.ever in Survivor history! My like for Lex/Kathy spiralled downwards after that.

But, back to the topic...

I HATE ROB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and

AMBER IS BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks HD, for starting a thread where I can say things like that to express myself without worrying about backlash from Romber-lovers and having to justify why I hate Rob.

But you are hating about Survivor, this is the Amazing Race.
This is a different show.

Oh, I hope you are able to get over this trauma.


On Topic

I just hate the way Ambers teeth are sooooo shiney, as she reads the rules on every clue, and Rob is just way too chubby since he started eating again.

I hate winners!
Winners make me wanna puke!
I hate teams that work together, how dare they beat the slower teams to the PitStop, they must have cheated!
They already won a million , so they should just hide in a closet and DIE!

And Rob has an accent! I hate that more than Amber's perfect pores!

LAST EDITED ON 03-25-05 AT 01:20 AM (EST)

Quoting from another thread:
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.

I agree; those who continue to make blanket statements like that about Rob's fans are getting monotonous and annoying. And it's gone over the edge, such as the comparison between Rob and Scott Peterson. On the converse, several posters have seemed to indicate that anyone who does not like Rob must:
a) just be "haters" who are jealous of his success/his dating Amber
b) be too stupid to see how brilliant he is
c) overreact to everything he does & accuse him of cheating whenever he wins

Honestly, I can understand why a lot of people are rooting for him. He's probably one of the main reasons I look forward to the show each week (although in my case it's because I want to see his scheming backfire). He's playing a great game, and he's added a different element to the race. Heck -- I was rooting for Brandon in Survivor 3, one of the most unpopular players out there, so far be it from me to put down anyone who has a different perception of a reality TV personality.

But Rob's not a Picasso painting, a delight for those sophisticated enough to enjoy him but baffling and unpleasant to the rest of us rubes. Excessive arrogance and camera mugging is off-putting to some, and bad behavior/homophobic comments from other shows can't help but carry over from other shows for others.

I'm still pretty new to posting, although I lurked for years, but c'mon: How about a truce between the Rob haters and fans? 'Cause if we don't, the terrorists win.

28. "RE: Me too"
Libra, I am happy for a truce and totally accept that, while I hate Romber, there are people out there that love them. Problem is, sometimes I'm not ALLOWED the luxury of a truce, as evidenced by the words of Drivemycar, dripping with sarcasm.

"I just hate the way Ambers teeth are sooooo shiney, as she reads the rules on every clue"

"I hate winners! Winners make me wanna puke!"

etc etc...

Sometimes, I just feel like I need to defend myself against posts like that. I came on this anti-Romber thread thinking it was perfectly ok to take my Romber hatred here and stop polluting the pro-Romber ones, but even here, I get bashed for bashing Romber. Like I said, it feels good that there's a thread that I can bash them without feeling the need to justify myself again, but here I am, feeling like I need to do just that!

And for the record, above are NOT the reasons I hate them! Kris and Jon's teeth are shiny, and they're beautiful beautiful people - I love them! Ethan's a winner - I love him! At least, I did until A.S.S... Chip and Kim are winners - love them! Well, Chip anyway... I hate it when Romber lovers generalise that the reason we ALL hate Romber is because we're jealous of them!

But... for any Romber-lovers who are willing to stop bashing the haters for bashing Romber, I'm perfectly happy for a truce. I've tried very very hard in my posts not to say anything snarky about other Posters, just about the Racers/Survivors, but if I've come across as having been mean to other Posters, then I'm sorry. It's not my intention!

I don't see any place where you were bashed, but if you were why don't you do the right thing and hit the alert button. We don't bash other posters here.

And now I've gotta get out of here because not only do I admire Rob and Amber's game play, but I actually dislike watermelon -- the fruit of course.

I agree with you Watermelon. Though I knew as soon as I saw a few other Romber lovers posting that this was indeed a thread that would ONCE AGAIN be dominated by ROMBER LOVE. Resistance was futile, but someday the dream will be realized when TEAM ROMBER has been asked to leave TAR. Then Happy DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!!!!

22. "Hi Libra"
Welcome Libra, and yes, you caught me.
Sorry for the snarky sarcasism.
I do like Rob and Amber as a team on The Amazing Race.
I also think the ones who don't like them, watch the show to see what they are going to do next, and can't wait to watch then fail.

So in a way they love them too.
Rob and Amber are the team they love to hate each week. And having a villan is as good as having a hero in reality tv land.

I am flattered that you quoted me ,and questioned me in the same post.

You are right, I think the anti-Romber posts are silly. The team has yet to prove me wrong, but I have been sarcastic here and there. I also see how he can grate on people. I get why some don't like him, it is a perspective thing, a difference of opinion. I hope my support of this team doesn't come across as if I think I am better than members who don't like him.
If it does to you, I am really sorry, that was never my intent.
But every Pro Rob& Amber thread in the Fanatics forum has been taken over by posters who are hating on this team.


Great Reality TV characters , are both loved and hated, it's the truth. It is part of the package. If no one Bashes you, you aren't really remembered.

Nice to have you with us Libra!
Call me Buggy.

( and darn you! I have "We Are Family" stuck in my head now *giggle*)

GASP...so you mean it's going to end up like Sam and Rebecca on "Cheers" and I'll be in love with Romber by the end of the season??? (dry heave)

Seriously, though, thanks for the welcome and response. It's always so hard to read sarcasm in message boards, but no offense taken, of course. I think part of the problem is Rombermania is attracting a lot of new posters (it's what inspired me to break my 3-year silence, after all) who might not be as familiar with the protocol of these forums, hence the spread of the anti-Rob tangents in, say, a thread about Phil's sweater choice. And that's understandably annoying some of the veterans.

I can't remember if I've been among them, but I hereby pledge to keep my extended Rob rants here and in my love lists (although you'll have to forgive me if I can't help but throwing in a bitter aside when relevant in other threads now and then).

Just feel free to get snarky if I get out of line.

Let me also add I've been loving the boards. I'll have to make my big OT splash soon.


Coulda been worse; I could have sung "I'd like to buy the world a Coke..."

Yes, it is hard to read sarcasm at first, once you start to get people's voices it gets easier.
And there is no reason you can't just ask someone if they are being sarcastic. ( politely)

The best advice I could give a new member of this community, is to read a bit, then dive in. Jump into something that interests you.

Yes, you will Love Rob&Amber soon.

Well, as one Romber-lover to one Romber-hater, I would be more than willing to accept a truce, but there's one simple problem to that solution - I don't think I've done anything to upset the anti-Romber faction, and having seen you post over the past couple weeks I don't think you've done anything to incite the pro-Romber group. Some can agree to be cordial and well-mannered, but there will always be people on both extremes that cross over the line and castigate both Romber and their fans or Romber and their detractors. As long as things don't get too out of hand, this board will survive (and I'm sure that if things do get too out of hand, the mods will start cracking the whip). Thankfully, there are people like you and me in the middle who can come together and weigh and understand the opinions of those on the other end of the Romber spectrum.

Anyway, I will leave you and your fellow anti-Romberites to bash away.

OK, I just read your post agreeing with Anotherkimabout how defenders shouldn't be allowed in bashing threads. Does this mean I can go into the Lynn-Alex thread and say: "I hate Lynn and Alex because they're soooo smart and funny?"

For that matter, I don't find Amber particularly good looking. I certainly didn't notice her pores and her teeth are nothing compared to Kris and Jon's. She has good cheekbones, that's it. And she's every bit as smug and self-congratulatory as Rob.

OK, I'm confused. I thought that this thread was created specifically to bash Rob and Amber in order to keep Rob and Amber bashing out of other threads and specifically out of threads about other posters. However, I've been told that defending and praising Rob and Amber is allowed in the bashing thread because it's not allowed in the guidelines. Does this mean that we are allowed to defend other racers in other bashing topics.

And no, I'm not being sarcastic, I'm honestly confused

Welcome to the boards!

Feel free to defend and/or bash any or all of the racers in any thread and any forum.

Usually, when a team is loved, we dote over them in fanatics, but when they are hated, we bash them in bashers. However, it does not mean one should love exclusively in fanatics or bash exclusively in fanatics.

This thread was started by a particular poster (History Detective) because he must've felt he was tired of defending his viewpoint and just wanted a place to discuss with those who agreed with his side. There is nothing strict about his "guidelines".

As long as you don't bash any other posters, you can post where you want.

Hope this helps!

Sort of

It's all about the guidelines.

If you start a love thread on a bashers board, it will get moved or something because it is inappropriate. But within a thread there is a lot of flexibility. The person who started the thread, regardless of his or her intent, can't really control what happens on the thread.

And thus the term threadjacking was born.

And, btw, I think Rob and Amber are the best players to ever appear on TAR.

See how it works?

They were NOT my rules, they were the rules of History Detective when he or she began this particular thread. See the first thread written by History Detective. History Detective made it very clear that this particular thread was for Romber haters only---where Romber haters can post freely. This was to be a thread where if you WANT to post, go ahead but only if you have something to say that isn't in praise of Romber. But if you would like to post positively about Romber on this thread I certainly can't stop you. Simply pointing out that the point of this thread begun by History Detective was not to reflect praise about Romber.

BTW, does anyone know a message board Romber haters can go and not be bothered by a plethora of Romber lovers??? I really would like to know. Seems it can't be found on these message boards.

Are you always this obnoxiously sarcastic with other posters or do I just bring that out in you? Think I am asking a rhetorical question here. But looking at your other posts, I don't think you have responded in the same way with other posters as you have with me--you know kind, warm, welcoming. Oh wait now I am being sarcastic and obnoxious aren't I?

ArNutz, aaron2kristie and Technoir, thanks for the welcome and the explanation. I post on another board where there are specific threads devoted to bashing a particular character and defending the character are not admitted on those threads. Likewise, there are love threads for characters where bashing is not permitted. So I wasn't sure of the rules here.

And to get back on topic, I detest Rob. He plays a good game, but I find him to be smug, self-satisfied, irritating, superior and enamored with the idea of screwing people even when it's totally unneccessary

As a Harry Potter fan, I've dubbed Rob and Amber: 'Team Malfoy.' Rob, is Draco, of course, a superior, smug little wanker who will use any legal means to topple those he sees as a threat, but never passes up a chance to stick it to anyone around him, even when that person isn't a rival. And Amber is Narcissa, a trophy wife with her own agenda and schemes from the background. However, unlike the Malfoys, I don't believe Rob and Amber are racist.

Several people like Draco because he is ambitious, witty and clever, and because they believe that Syltherins are unfairly persecuted because they are Slytherins. Substitute 'Rob' for 'Draco' and 'Slytherins' for 'Survivor winners and you have Team Malfoy . Or Team Slytherin, whatever you prefer

Careful careful Terriblue on making analogies to other people (fictional or real) and TEAM Romber. Some people are very easily upset by any comparison to their power couple. You can see a very popular thread under TAR Fanatics for info on that.

I do, however, appreciate your comparison and agree 100%. Good way to think it through!

Just saying to those who don't love Romber yet:

You are fighting the combined forces of Bruckheimer, Burnett, CBS, Stuff Magazine, Modern Bride Magazine and the reigning World Series and Super Bowl champions. Resistance is futile. Ultimately, you will all be loving Romber. You will be watching their televised wedding thiis summer, doing a shot whenever someone takes a cannoli and says "Holy Cannoli" and doing a shot whenever someone makes a joke about Lex not being invited.

Ummm, no, I will not be watching their wedding. It was bad enough to have to sit through that grandstanding proposal on the A.S.S. reunion show (never been a fan of the "public" proposal whether it was a reality TV DAW or an average person). I tolerate watching Smug & Smugger on TAR because I like TAR as a program despite the two of them being there, but I still remember how the remote control works. If CBS tries to force feed me a Romber wedding, I will just have to find something else to watch during that time slot.

It's going to be a weird mix, I know that -- you're a confirmed Romber detester and while I don't luv either of them, I admire Rob's strategic abilities. So there's going to be times when we swing from Rob hate to Rob not-hate between sentences. And Landru's run out of codeine.

Just for fun, here's some classic Rob bashing from the Survivor 4 archives. Why should we do the work when it's been done before? And for those of you not familiar with his past escapades, enjoy the history lesson.

Here his own beloved Boston gives him a bashing.

Here he gets raked over the coals for his nastiness toward his fellow survivors.

The episode summary of when he got voted off.

Enjoy!

Wow! Thanks for posting all those links, Libra. All of those conversations took place long before I found my way to RTVW, but I recognized many posters who I have come to know and respect their opinions. It was interesting how many of them pegged Rob as a misogynist and homophobe way back when.

But who cares about any of that now? It's OK if you've spouted out hateful comments and never really apologized for them or indicated that your views have changed and you have grown as a person just as long as you act charming now and have a nice piece of arm candy so you can look sooooo cute together.

But you know that even back then, for every Rob Bashing thread there where peeps that liked him?

If you want a search of the archives I could find as many threads that praised him ( even on the Basher forum)as those examples.

I am not saying your opinion is wrong, just that 3 threads with a few responses don't reflect the entire boards opinion.

And HD, I'm not saying the guy didn't say some sh*tty things.
I'm just saying he wasn't as hated then as it sounds. In fact, the Rob opinion has always been mixed, just as it is now.

74. "RE: A little red meat for the thread"
Hi Buggy,

You don't need to find other threads. There was Rob-love evident in those links too. I never meant to imply that there weren't mixed feelings about him way back when. I was just saying that I liked reading some vintage Rob bashing - and that the threads reminded me of our first introduction to Mr. Moroniano.

I'm actually more interested in the Power of the Edit. It appears to me that Rob may have gotten a kinder, gentler edit during A.S.S. based on the story that MB wanted to tell and the resulting "celebrity" from that season has caused MB and CBS to present Rob in a certain way that allows him to be a sweetheart, a lovable villian.

Realizing that this is dangerous ground, I think that this is really what the "golden boy" aspect of Rob is all about. No, I don't think that he will commit any explicitly heinous crime, nor do I even think that he is capable of such. He is, however, a seriously flawed individual in terms of his misogyny and homophobia, but somehow millions of us are willing to overlook that because he is "cute" and packaged for us in a new way that makes us overlook or forget his past attitudes and statements. Rob is not a criminal, but his assorted views (which somehow do not make it on camera lately) are a much more subtle character flaw that make him a scary individual to me (not scary that I fear physical violence, scary in terms of the ideas that he has spewed and all too many people overlook - and I'm not talking about people involved in our current discussion. I'm thinking of the first response in the first linked thread in which the guy was practically rubbing his hands together with glee because Rob had ferreted out the "quee-yah" and then "accurately" labeled the gay guy as the only woman in the tribe. No, Rob can't be responsible for every reaction of his fans, but before he received the Boyfriend/Common Sense Smart Edit we saw a different Rob that was no less authentic and tacitly endorsed certain narrow-minded views as being socially acceptable).

All in all, I think Rob is a much more complex person that we are being spoonfed during TAR, that the most alarming and distasteful aspects of his personality have been edited out in order to create the lovable villain rather than the sexist asswipe.

I'll admit that Rob is smarter and more clever than I usually give him credit for and he exudes a certain level of charisma (at least toward people that he can use or who do not make him uncomfortable) and I can respect him as a Racer - sometimes - but I would not ever want to spend time with him in real life (and I imagine that if a camera was not present, his response to me would not be all that positive either).

Tech: "And it isn't disrespectful because I am quite certain HD expected nothing less."

Quite right. It was my snarky way of seeing if those who had contracted Romberrhea would practice what they preached when they made certain comments in the Lynn/Alex bashing thread about taking the Romber hating elsewhere and staying on topic. As expected, some did, others did not (but isn't it great that love them or hate them, they prompt such strong reactions?).

I'm not a blue peep (er, forum moderator, if you're not familiar with the term yet), so I realize quite well that any "rules" I established when I started this post were my own sarcastic wishes (and commentary) and not binding in any way. Anybody is welcome to post anything they want here and then go to another thread and bitch about getting shouted down.

The current crew of Racers, Romber included, is a sorry lot in my estimation, so I am surprised that we focus on Smug & Smugger so much. Romber only seems clever in comparison to the rest of those asshats, but because of their "celebrity" we somehow got stuck on them. There's plenty of bile to go around ... but I'll save that for another thread.

I feel sorry for Rob. I mean, I've seen him on Survivor twice when he has not had a chance to shave and that nasty, scraggly moustache thing sorta grew in. It's too bad he doesn't have enough testosterone to grow real facial hair.

huh? You must be kidding! Have you checked out the Fanatics Board lately? For every positive...there is at least 1 bashing! So let's be fair about it! You can't bash in Fanatics and then expect no rebuttals here????

With that said....GO ROMBER!!!! While Rob may not be perfect... why aren't you "bashers" all "up in arms" and bashing Lydia and Alexa for the way they are acting....they made horrible comments in South Africa and have treated everyone with disdain.... they called countless number of other teams and people Bi*ch*s.... they are the main ones deserving of a bash.... can't wait for them to get the boot! They are absolutely horrid!

Please see the thread I started today about Camels and Chickens in South Africa. I may not love Romber, but Lynn and Alex don't deserve to get away bash-free either - and many others around here have been bashing away.

Isn't it sort of a double standard to bash a team for using rude slurs on ethnicity and then turn around and make sarcastic comments about that teams sexuality - Lydia and Alexa? I'm just saying, that's all

I only did it to point out the hypocrisy of all you Rob and Amber bashers..... it's okay to call them out of their name... ROMBER????? But not okay to make up new names for L/A...... who are the most obnoxious duo on the show. And it's okay for people to make fun of Rob's accent and ethnicity but not okay to make fun of L/A? Bash away...but don't dish it out if you can't take it....that's all I'm saying.....

'Romber' is not an insult. It is a name combo that was created for Rob and Amber long before the two even set foot on the Amazing Race and their fans love it just as much as their bashers. If you go to Fanatics, you will see a thread called: "I love Romber". 'Lydia' and 'Alexa' on the other hand, are clearly meant to be names making fun of Lynn and Alex for being gay queens. If you're going to accuse people of hypocrisy, try getting your facts straight first

I don't like how Rawb keeps using his Jedi mind tricks to keep other teams (not all, but many) preoccupied with beating him rather than focusing on running their own race. I don't like how Rawb and Lamber are getting along so well and enjoying themselves while they are racing. I don't like how it appears they prepared for the race by learning the rules of the race.

Holy Canoli, how's that?

63. "RE: The Romber Bashing Thread"
Ok, I'll attempt to stay on topic here.

Amber, I found boring in S2 (really, all she was was Jerri's shadow), and in A.S.S. she was Rob's shadow (lucky that everybody else was too stupid to see the Romber thing going on). And on TAR, she is boring.

On S4, I hated the smug look on Rob's face all the time and I was happy to see him voted off the island. That smug look never left his face on A.S.S. and it still bothered me. And that smug look remains on TAR. I know it is a minor thing but it has always bothered me.

Now onto Romber themselves. I was mad when Alison Irwin made it to TAR5. She already had her break on BB4 (and I happened to hate her on that show) and was runner-up. And Romber has had their chances twice on Survivor. Let new people into the shows. These other people have had their chances at fame. They could make a Rupert and his wife TAR team, or a Roger and Elisabeth team (both groups of people who I loved on their Survivor seasons) and it would still annoy me because they've had their adventure.

Though, I will give props to Romber for staying calm in the game of TAR and not getting downright abusive to each other (or even hurry up - I can't ...), I still don't think Romber belongs on TAR.

158. "RE: The Romber Bashing Thread"
And it's not like Ambuh did anything in her first Survivor appearance to merit as much exposure as she has subsequently gotten. She never should have even been on A.S.S. Rawb at least earned his place by making a contribution to the game during his first appearance. How did Ambuh get her spot on A.S.S.? Hmmm, Colleen said no, then Elisabeth said no, then MB finally invited Ambuh the sheep. Anybody else notice a trend? All those pretty young things... By the time MB got around to Ambuh, he wasn't interested in a player who made a contribution to the game. He just needed to fill the T&A quotient. And Ambuh has been foisted on us every since.

Ambuh and Rawb deserve some credit for winning A.S.S. as a team. Rawb probably would have made it pretty far even without her though.

Maybe I'm too much of a purist, but I watched A.S.S. to see Survivor at its best, not Survivor meets Love Connection. Similarly, I have always enjoyed TAR because it was the anti-Survivor in so many ways. It required a completely different skill set. I promoted it to my family and friends as a reality show in which nobody got voted off by the other plaers and people did not go out of their way to manipulate and backstab others. I liked when the show focused on the clues and the tasks. I'll admit that Romber has been good for ratings, but I wonder at what cost. TAR was already improving in the ratings before Romber, but now I fear that future seasons will require some sort of reality TV celebrity team and dirty tricks instead of the more mellow TAR that I first loved.

Yeah, I know the casting trend started with Aliwhore and Donny before Romber even arrived on the scene. I was quite happy to see them eliminated in the second leg.

I agree with your thoughts on Amber. I never liked her, but I have gained some respect for her (just a little, mind you) since ASS.

But, I do enjoy some manipulating and backstabbing, and I think TAR needed a bit more stragegy, and it has that this season. (IMO)

Ever season has had a villian, and without them, this show would really be boring. If Romber weren't on this edition, what on earth would we all be talking about?

I hated when Alison made it to TAR5 and I'm not happy Romber is on TAR7. I like to see new people on each season of TAR not someone I hated on a different show. You never know who you will end up loving or hating. I don't like the "hatred of Romber" focus of the other teams. I also don't like how many of the online recaps and articles about the race that I used to enjoy are about why Romber belongs in the race.

The Allison's and Romber's can be on "all star" editions. And I think there should be a standard clause in every reality show contestant's contract that they can not propose on the show unless they're on something like the Bachelor. It was stupid when the guy on Real World interupted his graduation, when Mike Boogie showed off on Big Brother and now we have to suffer through Romber's wedding.

I actually don't mind that Romber are on TAR, eventhough I don't like them very much. It really doesn't bother me that they've had exposure/win before, and are getting more TV time/another crack at a million. But I agree - if they wanna do a series including people like Romber, maybe they should do an all-stars. That way, nobody can say, "I hate you coz you've already won and don't deserve to be on again." Maybe that way, they'll focus more on winning than beating the only celebrity team. The Rodger/Elisabeth suggestion was great for an All-Stars idea! Tom/Ian would kick a$$!

Good idea, except not everyone on All-Stars would have already won a million.

I say to the racers, "Get over it and run the race. The more you focus on Romber as competitors, the more your own race game will suffer."

It is what it is. The whiners on TAR should accept that and move on.

OK - simple then. DON'T pick people to play that have already won a million. Pick the people that played well but somehow didn't make it to the very very end, eg Danny/Oswald, Kris/Jon, and as already mentioned Rodger/Elisabeth. That will take care of the "they don't deserve to be here slant".

I thought it was stupid putting a few ex-Survivor winners scattered throughout the 3 tribes - they shoulda put all the winners on 1 tribe so that they didn't have big targets on their backs. That way, we can see if they won because they were truly good!

But yeah, I agree - wish the current Racers would focus on the race and not Romber!

Welcome to the boards, imelda!

You might not recognize the Rawb we see on TAR as the same Rawb that appeared on the fourth season of Survivor. The original Rawb had diarrhea of the mouth, constantly spewing misogynistic and homophobic assertions. The new and improved Rawb, however, is merely smug and doesn't seem to make those sorts of remarks any more.


a sig by syren

(Or could it be that the producers simply don't share that aspect of Rawb with us any more since we're supposed to think he is the darling boyfriend? Sure, Lynn and Alex and many of the other Racers are absolute bitches - probably with some prompting from the producers and camera crew - but I imagine that Rawb volunteers a lot of opinions about them in return, with the most offensive stuff staying on the cutting room floor.)

...I think you're being an idiot about this. And you know I like you too so you must be being a major idiot for me to feel that way about you (/backhanded compliment)

Rob is not a mysogynist (sp), nor is he homophobic. There are two types of racism/homophobia/etc, the kind that comes from having a cruel heart and the kind that comes from simply being ignorant about the group of people you are talking about. Rob is obviously in the latter group which is completely forgivable.

People who are racist because of ignorance are not cruel by nature, but merely need to be exposed to the people they are racist against in order to combat that racist attitude. 99% of the time when someone like this is exposed to the people they are racist against they will see that there is nothing wrong with those people and they will realize their ignorance and change their ways.

Rob was clearly a culturally sheltered person when he was on S4 and was probbably never around gay people before. Since S4 Rob has had a lot more exposure to gay people and is obviously no longer prejudice against them. This has been obvious since All Star Survivor and is obvious once again now on TAR.

THAT is why you dont see those comments, because he doesn't make them, not becuase they choose not to air them. Do yoiu really think they would leave out homophobic comments that make great tv? Now who is being ignorant and close minded?


I speak on this from experience. I used to be homophobic about 10 years ago because I had never been around a gay person in my life. Then I moved to the city and was finally exposed to gay people and was for the first time able to see them for what they reall are, normal people just like me (well, maybe I'm not a good example of normal). Since then I have had numerous gay friends, boht men and women, including some that I would consider very close friends.

HD, you are coming off as very close minded and ignorant with your non stop unfounded Rob bashing and you are definitley losing a lot of points in my eyes.

115. "RE: Personally HD..."
Wow! I think that this is the first time I have been taken to task by Shakes. HD has finally arrived! (No, I didn't realize that you respected me before, but I am sorry to hear that my stock is going down.)

I appreciate your point about -isms that are fueled by ignorance versus -isms that are fueled by hatred/mean-spiritedness. However, regardless of the cause, similar results still spring from the -ism. (See your own post in OT a few days after the November election. You know, the one where you invited gay people to leave since Americans made it so clear they are unwanted. I would venture a guess that most of the voters you critiqued are ignorant rather than hateful. Their motivations hardly mattered though because the results were the same.)

Has Rawb improved? Perhaps, but even if he is kinder and gentler on the surface, I think he still has deeper, more entrenched views that get expressed in more subtle ways. He still makes comments that I find homophobic (in the ignorant sense) - or at the very least suggest he is not comfortable with gay people. Like last night when he informed Ambuh that "the two gay guys in front of us" were obnoxious, annoying him, whatever. We all knew (and Ambuh knew too) that the two guys he was talking about were not Greg and Brian. Saying the "gay guys" was superfluous when he could have just said "the guys." Rob attached the word "gay" to his description as a means of implying that they were obnoxious BECAUSE they are gay. These sorts of subtle clues are what fuels my dislike for Rawb, starting back with his confrontation with John, the gay male nurse, on Survivor 4. They had quite an argument but managed to reach some sort of peace - then as they got up to go their separate ways, Rawb throws out "So, you're gay, right?" - as if John being gay was the explanation for why John had a problem with Rawb's strategy and the way he treated people. Personally, I found it both offensive and disrespectful. Rawb was not interested in getting to know John as a person or learn anything about the people that John cares about; that was not his reason for asking about John's orientation. Instead he used "So, you're gay, right?" as an accusation.

I know that you probably think that I am being too picky and reading too much into these examples. All I can tell you is that as a historian I use close readings and textual analysis to interpret the words of the people I study. Here, I am applying those same techniques to what comes out of Rawb's mouth. You're welcome to disagree with my interpretation.

I would generally agree with you that distasteful things coming out of Rawb's mouth would make great television - but I continue to remember that Romber may have a televised wedding. That is reason enough to make him the lovable villain that we can disagree about rather than the ignorant sexist and/or bigot. This isn't just about ratings for TAR. Romber is a franchise.

Still, returning to your first distinction between the causes of -isms, I will concede that I have been too hard on Rawb by painting him as having a black heart when he is clearly just ignorant. I will try to tone it down. I still don't have to like him though and there are plenty of other reasons to bash him. I'll re-focus my efforts. Is that fair?

120. "Expose me!"
Rob was clearly a culturally sheltered person when he was on S4 and was probably never around gay people before. Since S4 Rob has had a lot more exposure to gay people and is obviously no longer prejudiced against them. This has been obvious since All Star Survivor and is obvious once again now on TAR.

I speak on this from experience. I used to be homophobic about 10 years ago because I had never been around a gay person in my life. Then I moved to the city and was finally exposed to gay people and was for the first time able to see them for what they reall are, normal people just like me (well, maybe I'm not a good example of normal). Since then I have had numerous gay friends, boht men and women, including some that I would consider very close friends.

This makes a lot of sense, and I think it's a definite possibility. My husband's experience is very similar to that of Shakes' (in this one, tiny way, I hasten to emphasize): he came from a very tiny village and the only exposure he had to homosexuality was his gay uncle's boyfriends lusting after him. Now, he still makes the odd comment, but simply being around a wider mix of gay people has given him a much more balanced perspective.



I'll leave now, because I .heart. Rawb.

Thanks Aaron2Kristie. Team Malfoy is not as bas as other teams, like Team Domestic Abuse, but they seem to get away with a lot more than those other teams and it just annoys me. Colin blew up a few times and that was enough for peopel to dub him psycho. Ray trash talks about old people. They get raked over the coals, but any time Team Malfoy does anything questionable, they have defenders out the wazoo

95. "RE: The Romber Bashing Thread"
During the first hour of tonights episode I was thinking to myself, "Man maybe I have been too hard on Rob and Amber. They are acting so friendly to everyone they encounter and really looking like they are having fun." I was even thinking about recanting all the predictions I had made and such to the character we have in the game being the character we inevitably have in life. I can't remember which team said it but they said you know "we are people first and racers second." I thought that was a profound sentiment. But it almost seemed foreboding because when the second hour of TAR happened and an accident on the road occurred, every team stopped to ask if the brothers needed help. One team even stopped, got out of their car for awhile and lost out on second place. But one team, the team I thought maybe I would or could change my mind about did not stop. "This is a race" they said as they drove on. When Phil asked about the accident and why they didn't stop they (Rob said with Amber quietly looking straight ahead in daft compliance) said "Phil, this is a race." (And didn't Rob look so smug--as did his future bride--when he said that too.) Phil looked at this "wonder team" in what I interpreted as sheer dumfoundment at the lack of humanity and compassion that should have overcome any decent person into stopping when a fellow human being's car is overturned in an accident. Phil said something like, "Oh, it is huh." (can't remember what he said word for word.) His body language and tone DEFINITELY and UNQUESTIONABLY stated he was disappointed with their actions. Yet his message came through loud and clear, the right thing to do RACE OR NOT, was to care, was to stop, was to offer help. Yeah sure this is a race but once again I will say and leave your studies at the door: WHO WE ARE IN THE GAME IS WHO WE ARE IN LIFE. BETTER STATED: WE are PEOPLE FIRST. We are RACERS SECOND.

I happen to like Rob and Amber, but bash away it is fun. \

But I tell you what I must be subhuman because I never stop for every car accident on the road. I sure learned a lot about myself tonight. I mean jeez most of the time I am just going home to a hot bath and some reality tv. I usually say something to the effect of "OH I hope nobody was hurt". Hmmm sounds familiar. I really must rethink my handling of such situations. You guys that live in the big cities with all the rear enders must have to stop alot huh to keep your humanity. Is a roll and stop ok if it is a rearender and a actual stop if a car is turned over? And how do you handle the backed up traffic. I need to be reeducated promptly.

Lynn and Alex were told to leave before Rob and Amber even passed by. They made IMHO a stupid mistake. It is a race. There was nothing they could do. At that point they were just there for the drama.

Now the quote about Meredith that is bashing material. The rest is silliness.

I don't think those statements can be generalized to everyday experience. I don't imagine that you personally know every person involved in most car accidents that you see. If you were to see a co-worker or colleague (which is the closest parallel to a Race competitor that I can think of at the moment) in an overturned car at the side of the road, would you really continue to speed along to your destination?

"Lynn and Alex were told to leave before Rob and Amber even passed by."

That's a nice red herring. Unfortunately, just because we were privy to that conversation does not mean that Romber heard it. It didn't even look like they slowed down.

Your right HD. You cannot generalize quite that much. But you have to see the irony in the situation.

These are not coworkers and aquaintances. These are racers who have never played nice themselves. The people you are competing against. Rude yes, but understandable. He did state that he would never want anyone to get hurt.

I disagree with the whole Rob is dumb as a rock theory. He makes lightening fast assessments of situations and acts accordingly. His reaction to the FF is classic to a smart guy who usually knows within 20 sec. his response. Utter frustration at his inability to decide. He took one look at the accident and knew that it was under control. There was nothing he could do. Stopping would only have been to play by the nice rules.

Now I disliked Rob intensely in his first Survivor. His remarks on women and homosexuals were uncalled for. Maybe he has changed maybe he has not. At this point it is irrelevent. He has not shown the same bad judgement.

To keep it on topic in the forum. Again I say that his comment about Meredith was tactless and uncalled for. I think he was trying to be funny, but it did not leave me laughing.

104. "RE: The Romber Bashing Thread"
I'm not in complete disagreement with you on the not stopping issue, yourstruly, as you can see from my other post lower on this thread.

As for Rawb being dumb as a rock, I think there is more than one kind of smart. Rawb is obviously quite street smart and displays a lot of common sense (which is really not all that common). I will give him credit for that because he manages to think about tasks in ways that other Racers do not. In other arenas (that do not necessarily have anything to do with the show), I still get the sense that Rawb is only a little smarter than a rock. He doesn't strike me as somebody who could have a conversation much deeper than "Ambuh is so hot!" Keeping that in mind (knowing that he would make a poor conversation partner at a dinner party), I try not to consider it when I assess Rawb as a Racer or as a person. After all, there are no essay questions on TAR. But if we are going to call Rawb smart, then we need to recall that we have given that word a certain valence in his case and be honest about what we mean exactly. He often has good instincts and usually exhibits common sense, but that doesn't necessarily make him any more interesting than a doorknob.

Like you, I don't know if Rawb's opinions on women and gay people have changed or not. Based on my own experience, however, I don't know many people with views that were as entrenched as those expressed by Rawb who have managed to change their outlook on the world in a few short years. Am I holding a grudge? Yes. Is it unmerited? Maybe, but probably not. I believe that Rawb is a distasteful person who have been the recipient of a very nice edit to cosmetically make him seem like a different person. I guess it comes down to the fact that I don't want people who spew sexist, homophobic, or racist remarks to have their words so easily overlooked and become our new sweethearts. Last season we never grew to love Kendra, the eventual winner, in large part because of her comments about people in developing nations. I imagine that if the producers still showed us Rawb's commentary on women and gay people, that we we be less enamored of him as well.

I must have missed the Meredith comment. Was that the one where he was confused about the name? I noticed that a couple of Racers (Uchenna?) also had that problem. I didn't take it to be derogatory by any of them, though it really made me wonder how they could be this far into the Race and not know the names of the other Racers. They do, after all, spend some time together at the pit stops - and I've never gotten a sense of animosity between Romber and Gretchen/Meredith.

For the record, since I've noticed several newbies in this thread, Shakes has special status in regard to the guidelines, an exemption from certain rules, so I understand the spirit in which his comment was intended. Don't hit ALERT and don't try to chastise him because it's not an argument you're going to win.

I've seen too many pissing contests on this board over "I am smarter" or "I have a better degree" to even touch this one.

No, the Meredith comment was when Meredith and Gretchen were trying to "collect money" with their line about we are collecting money for the lion and rhino fund and that ain't no lyin--something cute like that. When Rob's little interview came up about that he stated that of course they gave her and him some money, he didn't want to be looking at her face (all scarred up from the caves). And also that probably Meredith pushed her down and this was all some kind of con. Classy classy guy that Rob is eh?

What evidence do you have that it was a joke on Rob's part? He made the statement and giggled/laughed while so doing. It could have been a joke but could you at least admit it was in bad humour...by the way, I never said his statement was a joke or not, I just presented the dialogue as it happened since earlier in the thread HD asked what another poster was referring to when they were commenting about Rob's comment about Gretchen and Meredith.

I don't stop at every accident I see either. I think if someone had EMT training or was in the medical field they should definately stop and see what they can do to help.

Lynn and Alex were alread there "helping" , ( that is to say they were wringing their hands and saying, " Oh me oh my.")
And Team Brother told L & A to go ahead and go, there wasn't anything they could do there.

I think Rob and Amber should have slowed down and asked what was going on, there wasn't anything they could do, but I think slowing down to ask would have been nice. None of the teams that came past after stopped and got out either.

Don't forget that by the time R & A went by, there were at least 8 people at the scene of that accident. The production crews had radios to get help, and unless you have medical training there wasn't much to do but fret.

Rude? Sure. Example of imhumanity to your fellow men? Not hardly.

I agree with your measured approach to this issue, Buggy.

If Rob had left that decision-making process up to Amber much longer, Gretchen could have two-stepped backwards across that water cooler. What a disaster. As SOON as they saw Ray complete that task, they should have been in the car, if not sooner. Dumb, dumb, dumb mistake. Amber is NOT good at decision making in the heat of the moment and Rob is. There's nothing wrong with admitting that. They need to and move the heck on.

Ambuh is not good at decision making - period. As we learned from both her appearances on Survivor. I don't like Rawb so much, but when he says things like "WE won $1,000,000 on Survivor" I'm willing to cut him some slack. Alone, they wouldn't have lasted, but as a team they were successful. Amber didn't so much win A.S.S. as Rawb lost it. They learned to work as a team on A.S.S. and that seems to be continuing on TAR.

But their gameplay is showing cracks. Last night was mistake-filled, with Rob asking Amber to make a decision being the best example. He of all people should know that he has to make the decisions for the team.

I think their demise is coming soon, but I still think they'll outlast the partners.

Ambuh appears to be nothing more than dead weight on this team. She does nothing and cannot even make a decision. Perhaps that is PART or the reason why Rob is such an A$$ during this race, he's alone on a two person team. (don't get me wrong, the man has no human decency and his smug, self riteous ?sp? attitude aggravates me to no end.)

I predict Ambuh's lack of involvement is going to be thier downfall.

I replayed what Phil stated and he also stated " You LEFT them on the side or the road?" (emphasis on left). Umm I think that is a reasonable assessment that Phil was none too happy that they left a fellow teammate without even stopping.

And to those who keep referring to not stoppping in real life at every car accident. There were no other cars on the road nor people on this road EXCEPT for players in TAR. It's a little different than when we are driving on a freeway and there is an accident with an unknown person there. In that case, most of us, call it in. Now if I were a male or did not have children in the car maybe I would stop and do more but there are safety reasons (stranger danger) of why we don't stop in our city freeway day to day lives.

Didn't anyone catch Rob contemplating erasing the name on the sign-up board at the Safari?

When teams were signing up at the time slot at the safari, i wondered to myself, what if other teams came along and erase the name, would that be within game rules? I was sure this would be something the Romber team would do.

Sure enough, few seconds later, Romber arrived at the Safari and Rob was shown he was contemplating erasing L/A off the board.

Unbelievable.

New guy here. How do I hate Romber? Let me count the ways. First, I think I know why the other teams hate them. They no doubt had to jump through a lot of hoops to get into the race while Romber was Fast Forwarded to the starting line as a ratings stunt. Also, it is obvious that CBS is giving them an advantage (holding the plane for them in Argentina, planting people to pose as Survivor fans and help them along, etc.) They are going to make sure these two clowns at least reach the final three no matter how much of a farce they have to make this race. And I don't want to see Rob's sleazy tactics become the norm for TAR. If I wanted to see a bunch of lying, backstabbing slimeballs I would watch Survivor.

It just goes to show that there is an unfair advantage that Rob and Amber have in this race. Had they not been "celebrities", people would not be stopping to help them out. C'mon, they've had people help them around town to complete their tasks. They've had airplanes held for them.

There is definitely an unfair advantage. I don't think Romber should have been in this Race. Save it for some kinda reality whore allstar episode.

Gotta disagree on that. An advantage, sure, but unfair?

This is not a race of equals. Everybody brings something different to the table. Brian/Greg are a lot more athletic than Meredith/Gretchen, but I wouldn't call that unfair. Some players know how to drive a stick, others don't. Romber's celebrity, albeit of the D-list variety, falls into that same category.

Who knows? Maybe it will work against them. Maybe there's a Romber basher lurking out there who masquerades as a "helpful local" and leads them on a 60-mile sidetrip off the map?


One can always hope.

Other teams have had locals help them out in pretty much every season of TAR. And we have no proof that the plane was held for them. Planes get held for lots of reasons, all the time.

Yeah, but others have gotten help from locals by asking or negotiating for it, not simply by standing there and being recognized.

I can agree that everybody brings something different to the game so Romber's celebrity is not "unfair" per se, but let's be honest about it. The help that they sometimes receive from startstruck locals is not the same as the help that former teams have received.

Right, but all the other teams have to do is ask a local to help them. I bet there would be lots willing, even without getting paid. All they have to say is, "You'll be on TV." If situations had been reversed and Romber was not the celebrity team, you can bet that Rob would have turned the alleged "disadvantage" into his own advantage. Why the other teams don't do that is that they lack imagination.

Exactly. Didn't Jonathan get some local guy to show them around more than once last season? It may be a little easier for Romber because of their celebrity, but most of the time a team gets help, the helper doesn't look very reluctant to help them.

Perhaps if Amber would have had enough brains to have asked. Instead, she just looks pretty and someone recognizes her. This is definitely an unfair advantage for the other teams.

Have the producers ever shown us an instance where some locals totally blew off a team asking for help? Would they?

(on the other side, I would probably be rooting for Romber if this was a Survivor-edition TAR where teams were made up of former Survivors and one family member/friend. Wouldn't it be weird to see Johnny Fairplay & his boytoy as a TAR team?)

I so enjoyed Rawb being a prick just for the sake of being a prick in the recrap episode. In particular, I am thinking of the footage in which he kept switching lanes for the sole reason of giving Meredith and Gretchen a hard time. There was no strategy to it. There was nothing to be gained. He was not trying to lose them or outRace them. Instead, he just wanted to annoy them. And it made me ask "What purpose did that serve?" It seems that he was being a jackass just to be a jackass - becasue that's how he gets himself all moist. I didn't find it amusing at all - and I didn't get the impression that Ambuh did either.

190. "RE: The Romber Bashing Thread"
I have never posted here before, so please forgive me if I am repeating other's points.

I am very disappointed in this season and it is all because of R&A. The fact that these two schemers would be placed on a show like AR bothers me.

The thing that was nice about AR was that it wasn't Survivor and there was no real spirit of trickery and scheming on the show. Sure, the teams are all trying to win, but it has usually been that the team playing the hardest and working together best wins or does very well.

It was always fun to watch with my children because, I felt, it taught good lessons about perseverance and team work. Of course, there have always been villians and last season's Jonathan and Victoria were an embarassment, but they are the exception rather than the rule.

As for R&A, they were unlikable, scheming, liars on their individual seasons of Survivor and for me they cemented that persona by teaming up on Survivor All-Stars to get 1st and 2nd place...and don't forget the engagement...ugh.

Their methods, sadly, seem to be what is needed to win Survivor, which is why the strongest and hardest working people usually don't win on that show (my fingers are crossed for you, Tom), but this show, AR, was different...until now. R&A have managed to scheme and "manipulate" the race rules to their advantage. Do you really want to see a team win the million dollars when they deliberately quit at a task that simply involved eating? That would be ridiculous.

Aside from R's arrogance and lying and A's apparent egotism and vacantness, I cannot abide their selfish attitude towards the other teams (it is possible to be kind AND win) and their (well Rob's at least) blatant anti-homosexual comments. It is a disgrace and I am sickened by it.

Sorry to ramble, but I needed to vent.

Welcome ...

I have to take exception to some of you comments though. I can't see any reason you can't watch TAR with your children? There's all types of lessons to learn, regardless if the racer is doing something good or, in your opinion, not so good.

Also, I don't recall any "blatant anti-homosexual comments" from Rob on TAR. In fact in the re-cap he gave L/A a compliment. When stating that they should yield L/A, Rob said it was because they were definately the stongest team.

The quit thing has been debated for ever. Some, including myself, choose to look at it as strategy. And it worked. So to answer your question. Yes.

I HATE ROMBER...I don't understand why they were not penalized when they didn't stop when B and G had that wreak. Everyone else did. Lynn and Alex stayed and the others stoppped and offered help, to which B and G waved them on because help was on the way. Also, ROMBER cheats and they only care about themselves. I cannot stand his accent YUK! I don't understand why everytime they come in first, they get a prize...Ron and Kelly didn't and neither did Lynn and Alex. I know the other 2 teams did when they finished first, but how many trips can THEY win. I guess they can travel alot since they don't have jobs ( according to a magazine article I read). They will just live off AMber's money I guess. I really want them to lose!!!! I think it is unfair ro have them on there, especially since ROMBER won on survivor. It would be cool if Gretchen and Meredith beat them. But I wonder if Amber is getting fed up, on Tuesday episode(4/5) she got mad at him in regards to his behavior about Gretchen and Meredith. Nah?

Holey carp! Such hatred and misinformation. I won't even answer this baseless nonsense, cuz it's been answered here and elsewhere (stopping and helping, cheating, prizes for coming in first).

Nailbone,
I have the magazine article right here about Romber, they moved to Fl and neither one is currently employed. They did not stop and help when Greg and Brian wrecked. Plus, isn't this a thread for people who DON'T LIKE Romber. Everyone can have an opinion and this was mine. I think they need to LOSE!

Agreed. And they shouldn't have.

Plus, isn't this a thread for people who DON'T LIKE Romber. Everyone can have an opinion and this was mine. I think they need to LOSE!

And I was expressing my opinion as well.

Just because you are entitled to your opinion doesn't mean it isn't misinformed.

R&A were under no legal or race obligation to stop for the car wreck. You can hate 'em for it if you'd like, but it did NOT deserve a penalty.

And, if you'd read this or any other of the myriad of threads on Basher or Fanatics (or the guidlines for that matter), you'd note that while this is indeed a Romber Bashing Thread, so long as people are within board guidlines, they may speak freely.

Welcome Ryanatormom!
Yes this is the board for people who don't like Romber. Trouble is, there is maybe like four of us who post on this board who don't like Romber and the rest love and defend them to the bitter end. So it's like 90-10 Maybe??? So good luck to you and just wanted to make you aware of the Romber love, even on the bashing message boards.

The ones in favor of Romber are probably R&A writing for themselves.

195. "RE: The Romber Bashing Thread"
I am glad that I found this board and I am happy to be posting.

Just to clarify:
I didn't say that I can't watch with my children. My point was that I watch both TAR and Survivor with my family. We like both, but much prefer TAR because of the spirit of competition and teamwork that sets TAR apart from other reality shows.

CBS has both programs, I just don't want to see TAR become Survivor. If you like the plotting and scheming and lying stuff, watch Survivor. TAR was always the class act of reality and I hope it stays that way, that's all...

I am with you on this. But this season really reck it for me with Roamber. Never like them on Survivor and sure do not like them on TAR. I always watch but just can not finish this one until they are gone. If they win then I guess I dont watch this season. Its a downer for me cause I really like TAR. There is another couple out there soemwhere that miss out on their chance to have a reality show experiance. :')

201. "What's the protocol..."
LAST EDITED ON 04-08-05 AT 04:59 PM (EST)

...for starting a new thread on a subject? This one's getting rather unwieldy and is pure torture for those poor dial-up folks, I imagine. And there's still weeks of Romber discussion to go.


Really, I just wanted to get my first swoop even though it doesn't count in here. ETA: D'oh! Someone beat me! When I find out who...

Start a new one. Call it "Romber Bashing part 2" and explain why you started it.

*pouts* No fair. Now this thread's gotta drag on for another 95 messages.


Seriously, if no one else does it, I'll start a new thread next week. I really have nothing negative to say about Romber right now.
