"Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either..."

all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the "racers" last night about Romber not stopping at the scene of the wreck last night made me LMAO.

IT IS A RACE PEOPLE! This is not an experience in human bonding or a lesson in civics. It's a race. Let's look up race, shall we?

according to dictionary.com a race is:

A competition of speed, as in running or riding.

Now, color me simple, but the purpose of being in a competition is to come in FIRST, right? Yeah, first. Okay. Got that.

Rob and Amber approach the wreck scene. Clearly, the two brother-racers are standing up and walking around. Additionally, the boyfriends are milling around, as are other members of the CBS crew, etc. There is no sense of panic or urgency. No one is administering CPR. The car is on its side, there are no flames, no pools of blood.

Why on EARTH did they need to pull over and check on the situation? They weren't first on the scene. They weren't doctors. What more was going to be gained by stopping and asking a question? The situation was very clear from driving by....there was a wreck.

The hypocrisy that Lynn and Alex continue to show just flabbergasts me. They act like Rob and Amber should play nice to make friend with the others, but the others have made it clear since DAY ONE that they hate Rob and Amber, so why bother? It just sticks in Lynn's craw so bad that Rob and Amber WON'T play kiss-##### and try to make nice.

The point is to get to the checkpoint first. The point is not to make friends. Go ahead and talk about what scum of the earth they are, sure, but decide what the point it....do you want a million dollars or not? Do you want to win the race or not? Oh, and would any of those other teams have stopped if it had been Rob and Amber's car that had flipped? The brothers, yes, I think they would have. Meredith and "whatshisname?" sure, probably. Lynn and Alex? You've got to be kidding me. No.fricking.way.


Oh, how I hope Lynn and Alex go before Romber...that's all I need.

1. "RE: Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either..."
I agree for the most part, Kim, though I think it wouldn't have killed them to at least slow down for a second and check to see that everyone was OK.
I also sincerely hope that Lynn and Alex go out before Romber. It'll be fun to watch them sputter over that!

2. "RE: Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either..."

sure, it wouldn't have killed them, I agree. AND if it had been anyone other than Lynn and Alex standing there, they might have, but Rob KNOWS how much he and Amber annoy Lynn and Alex, so you know he knew it would just set them off by not stopping. He is a master at pushing people's buttons and Lynn seems to just invite him to do it.

Miscellaneous Ramblings
--I just wish it hadn't been the brothers who wrecked because they're my favorites.

AND if it had been anyone other than Lynn and Alex standing there, they might have, but Rob KNOWS how much he and Amber annoy Lynn and Alex, so you know he knew it would just set them off by not stopping.

I hadn't thought about it that way, but you're probably right.

I'll agree but they should have slowed down just like the other teams did no matter who was there. I don't think Romber should be taking the pounding that they are but they do deserve some of it for not even slowing down and asking.

If your team was there when Gretchen when down would you grab your clue and go or stop for a sec see she was ok and in good hands then move on?

Edit: L/A is who I hope is the next to go....I can't stand them and their focus on Romber and not the race or the experience.

I say Rob and Amber trying to pi$$ off Lynnand Alex by not stopping is every bit as ridiculous as Lynn and Alex trying to rub in the fact that they didn't stop. If they didn;t stop for that reason they are just as obsessed with Lynn and Alex as the boyfriends are with Team Malfoy

No way. Romber are mad at the Happy Boys for things done in the race, like not letting them on the bus/cab (which makes the Happy Boys as hypocritical as they say Romber are). Lynn and Alex have been obsessed with Romber since the very beginning, before Rob did ANYTHING the least bit underhanded. And the obsession is growing to the point that it will soon be detrimental to their racing.

I said "If" and I stand by my statement that if Rob allowed Lynn and Alex to get under his skin so much that he didn't bother to stop for a possibly serious accident just becaue they were there, then he's gotten just as bad as them, because that means he didn't make an ethical or strategic decision, it was all about Lynn and Alex. Meaning he's making exactly the same mistake that Lynnand Alex are; he's taking it personal

That aside, I think Team Malfoy wouldn't have cared if Lynn and Alex weren't anywhere in sight

Finally some sense of reason.

I am flabberghasted at the irony of both the other racers and the people on this board. Romber must play nice. They must they must. Fist pounding on the desk. It is the right thing to do. Turn the other cheek.

It reminds me of a toddler throwing a temper tantrum because the other child in the room has the toy they want. The little tot kicked at and hit at the toy carrying tot and then felt slighted that it would not give it to them.

Why should Rob and Amber play nice to a group of prejudging, self-seeking toddlers?

Do I like all the things they have done? No! but that is a reply I can say for every team except for Uchenna and Joyce. Get real.

When have Brian and Greg said rude things to Rob and Amber? The worst they said was: "No freaking way" when Team Malfoy stepped on the plane?

When have Meredith and Gretchen been rude and horrible to Team Malfoy?

If we're talking toddler behavior, then I'd say it's very toddler like to say: "Well Lynn and Alex get to be mean, we should get to be mean too!"

The references from other team members and behavior evidenced briefly in different episodes shows that Romber have been ostracized from the first. I did not say they have been rude and horrible. I just think it is ironic that all clearly want them to win the least of all teams, but Romber should just take it.

>If we're talking toddler behavior, then
>I'd say it's very toddler
>like to say: "Well Lynn

Personally, I do not think it is "mean" to run the race the way Romber has. Maybe it is not how some people would run it, but it is not "mean". I am not sure where you are coming from with the above statement.

Based on the what I have seen and the comments made, the teams came in already determined that of all people the Survior winners would not win. Romber already had the prize. They must not get another one. Fine if that is how they feel. I hope I would not be as shallow. But why should Romber try to make friends with their enemies or even play like they want them to. They came to run a race. In that sense the other teams remind me of a bunch of toddlers. They have to (play the way we say, stop when we stop, miss the plane because they did not eat, lose because they have already won, not fair.) because we say so. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa mine, mine, mine.

Of course they can, but in this instance, not in my opinion. I don't think ANY of them had any obligation to stop. They were just the ones who were getting flamed for it. If others were getting lambasted for not stopping, I'd defend them, too.

As for his past comments, I've said things that I regret in the past, too. I just wasn't on camera. Hell, I voted for Bush...and Bill Frist twice. I'm not going to hold something that he did on a television show years ago against him on another television show. I don't know what kind of person he is because I've never met him. Perhaps he's changed, who knows. Who knows how much of that on S4 was purely for the camera...all that crap about the women serving him and Sean, etc. So much of what Rob Mariano does is for camera time and to advance his game that none of us know what kind of person he really is. It's all in a character. You can choose not to like him and I can choose TO like him. Please don't make me sound like an idiot every time I choose to, though. I'm not stupid. Really.

As for the on-camera persona, I get that. A lot of what he said was obviously staged, especially in the confessionals. My objections have to do with things that he would say in the course of conversation with people, stuff that came out in a way that I had the impression it came from a deeper place within Rawb, not simply some sort of grandstanding, stuff that was so entrenched that I am not certain that Rawb is capable of being self-reflexive enough to understand why people might consider it inappropriate.

Not slowing down was rude, but it wasn't inhumane.

I've been lurking for a while. But with this I have to speak out.

Why would they stop! I'm sure they heard the radio call, "everyone was stable", from their own sound and camera people. Nobody was being loaded into L/A's vehicle for a mad dash to the hospital.

You know they had a helicopter for aerial shots, and it landed.

Their not doctors/nurses/emt's, AND from being on other reality shows, they KNOW the medical team isn't far behind!

This is ridicules to think that you should stop, H@!!, I bet the sound and camera people were telling them to go on, it would make better TV!

That's what I think!

Thanks for letting me vent!

I agree that there was no reason to stop with the situation appearing already under control. I was more amazed that L/A just hung around - what exactly was the purpose of that? Even B/G told them to leave and they didn't. I think they hung around for the camera time alone. I didn't see either of them actually assist the situation, they just milled around and then acted like they were the great humanitarians and milked their so-called "help time" even on the mat.

I also agree that R/A have been treated like outcasts by the other teams and am amazed that for kids their age they have not gone over the top dishing out crap to the other racers. Just think about everybody treating L/A the way they've treated R/A and imagine what they would have had to say about all the other teams then.

I did admire the brothers for the heart they showed. Gretchen as well. For a person her (my) age what a tough couple of days physically and I didn't hear any complaining. Kudos.

I agree, Kim. Stopping was pointless. He did say something about wishing no one got hurt as they drove by.

I was also annoyed that Phil was shown asking them (and only them) why they didn't stop. He did get a nice Evil Rob glare for this. At that moment I think Rob realized maybe CBS was going to paint him as a villan again. I think he has been pretty upbeat & having fun through the whole race. however - I really, really want to hear a godfather speech from him beofre this race is over.

Um hello? Just because they didn't come to a complete stop and yell out the window "you ok?". They're bad? Don't think so. Obviously they could SEE that the bros were ok and the injured person was being attended too. So why stop?

Lyn and Alex need to grow up. They were very childish IMHO. "ooohhhh Rob and Amber didn't even stop and help. We stopped and helped." Hello? Helped? In what way? All they did was stand around and preen for the camera and then b!tch when Romber didn't stop.

Question? If Romber were the crash victims, do you think Lyn and Alex would have stopped and milled around like that? Well? I don't think so. They would have squealed with glee at beating Romber to the mat once again.

But a yellow flag comes out and everyone is on the radio asking if everyone is ok.....then they start talking about tire, push, tight, loose, etc.

They sort of have that too except for the yellow flag. Every cameraman and soundman per team are linked via wireless radio. They can relay emergency messages or other important race info to the racers.

This is speaking from experience. I was part of the local production team when TAR5 visited Asia.

THANK YOU!!!! for saying what I wanted too but saving me the time
I posted something about this in a now locked thread and apparently because I dont see anything wrong with Romber not stopping my values are twisted

I said it before and I'll say it again if Romber were lying on the side of the road dead none of the other teams would have stopped

why should Romber play nice? the other teams have it out for them its all about self preservation when it comes to a million bucks!!

I totally agree. I wouldn't have stopped either. I mean, there is obviously a camera crew there who was filming who is probably better trained to take care of people. I didn't realize that Romber were doctors. Other teams also drove by.
I hope gay boys are next to go.

Rubbernecked, maybe, but they didn't stop filming, they didn't call everyone to a halt, they kept production rolling right along, they can smell a good story a mile across the salt lake.
Second place is just the first loser.

I have very little problem with Rob and Amber not stopping for the car wreck and I agree with many of the points made here.

However, considering that Rob still has to answer questions about the lies he told in survivor and that he seems to have come into the race with a generally negative public image it might have been better from that point of view to at least stop and ask if anyone was hurt or express some concern. They are hoping to have their wedding televised, are they not? I think that if they want to continue their careers on tv they need to be more likeable. Of course I could be totally out to lunch here. Feel free to say so.

I still believe Rob should have won All-stars. I believe he deserved to win more than anyone else because he ran that game pretty much from beginning to end. I like the fact that he's very driven to win but his manner comes off as very abrasive to a great many people. If he just hoped to win the amazing race his demeanor wouldn't be that problematic but because, I believe, he hopes to have a career in the public eye I think he needs to mend some bridges with those who see conduct on a reality tv show as being symbolic of a persons true character.

I suppose that what I'm trying to say, while rambling on, is I think a small gesture of concern here would have done wonders for both of their public images.

*I have lurked on the survivor spoiler board since Amazon.*

I did lose a bit of respect for them last night, simply because they didn't seem to care about what happened in the wreck, and even seemed a bit gleeful that it allowed them to pass those teams. Evil Amber even made a short appearance in one of the confessionals.

However, someone pointed out in another thread that the Insiders footage showed that Alex didn't want to stop either, but Lynn talked him into it (or vice versa, I can't remember).

And the points made about L/A stopping and staying make sense. They didn't really do anything while they were there. No first aid, no calls for help, nothing. Just whining and bitching about Romber. Sanctimonious twits.

What bugs me the most about this whole situation is Lynn and Alex's moral superiority. His comment at the mat, "We WOULD have been second but we stopped to help." What did you do besides stand around and bash Romber? Please.

I wouldn't have stopped either, so I guess Lynn and Alex would never like me.....oh the horror!

I agree with a lot of others, if it had been Rob and Amber in the accident they never would have stopped. Now if the all hell was breaking lose and fires were burning and blood was spouting, yeah I'd be a bit upset they didn't stop, but people were just milling around, nothing looked dire, and heck their own camera people could have asked them to stop if it looked dire.

As a side note, I work with Bianca's father, I think this is one of the reasons she doesn't think Rob is a good person, Her dad told me that TAR has added new rules now I guess, so if something like this happens again, I think the other teams have to help now.

i had to sign a waiver form to NOT SAY A SINGLE THING TO ANYONE about my part in the local production of TAR5 in Asia until the episode with that country had aired inthe United States. otherwise they would take everything away from me including my great grand children's children.

33. "I would have stopped...."
...but only because I'm a nurse. I would have felt obligated to stop and assist in any way possible until other medical help arrived. But as soon as they got there, I'd have been putting on my boogie shoes.

If I were not a nurse, I would have driven right by with no pain of conscience. Lynn and Alex stopped, but I wouldn't call what they did "helping". They looked like adrenalin junkies looking for a fix.

Rob and Amber would have rehabbed their appearance somewhat if they had paused to holler "You okay?", or if they had refrained from making comments that come across as lacking in compassion. But that's not Rob's style. He doesn't try to be politically correct. If he's thinking it, he says it.

I would bet anything that as Lynn and Alex ran around "helping" that they were thinking that the accident guaranteed that they would not be the ones eliminated. They just didn't say it.

I personally like that you always know where you stand with Rob. If he's pissed, you know it. If he's happy, even the little birdies can't help but sing along.


Yeah, I got it bad for Rob.

Excellent points, Kim. As someone who began watching TAR this season with a dislike of Romber, I soon changed my mind when I saw how they played the game. Then last night, I decided my initial dislike was correct, so I came here to Bashers to give them the bashing they deserved. That is, till I read your post. So thanks, Kim, for telling it like it is!

Kim, I *heart* you! You took the words right out of my mouth. I thought it was unfair of Phil to critcize them for not stopping, when all the other teams did was to ask if everything was ok. Why didn't Phil ask the other racers the same question he asked Romber?

Yes, he's devious and manipulative and a little evil. But he's a heck of a player and is having such a good time with everything that he's doing that you just can't help but like him!

Uhhh... I don't know. I thought Phil's little smile seemed uncomfortable. Like when you didn't know how else to react to a situation. Eg. When your boss suddenly calls you and tell you that your mom had just died in an accident, immediately after which he reveals that it was all just a joke.


PS. Just an example. Please don't take offense . It's the first bad joke that comes to mind.

I don't blame Romber for not stopping, but I did think they

looking like jerks.

I did think that Lynx (is that how to abbreviate Lynn/Alex?)
were so holier than thou I wanted to hurl.

Jon and Victoria Ray and Deana were well on their way
of becoming my new Villain Team until they got eliminated.


Lynx has officially become my Villain Team, now that the two other Villain Teams (Debbianca and Susan/Patrick) were eliminated.

Wow. Why not just pistol-whip them, tie them to a fencepost and leave them in the field to die?

To answer the larger question at hand, this Romber basher can't disagree with anotherkim. They had no reason to stop, and it didn't bother me that they didn't. That ranks pretty low on my "reasons to dislike Rob" list, and my estimation of Lynn/Alex went down on how much they harped and tried to play the saint card with it. That being said, I also thought Rob's and particularly Amber's later reaction to it was appalling, smirking and chuckling that they didn't stop.


But I'm with Rob on one thing: I don't want no one to get hurt.

48. "For anyone who would have driven on..."

With a quick glance, you would have decided that maintaining a lead which you already had on several other groups, INCLUDING THE TEAM THAT WAS OBVIOUSLY GOING NOWHERE BECAUSE THERE VEHICLE WAS FLIPPED, was more important than the increasingly uncommon courtesy of just ASKING if everyone was okay?

Excuse me, but I think that's pretty pathetic.

A few seconds of time is all they needed to show that there is a little place in their heart for someone who was obviously laying on the ground. You don't need to tend to their wounds or preen for the camera. Just have a little compassion for the camera guy who was hurt, that's all.

Instead of saying, "It's a race, Phil," Rob could have said, "Yeah, I hope everyone is okay." But he didn't do that either. And people are bashing the brothers for not doing the same? Talk about hypocrisy!

And pondering whether or not people would have stopped for them is not only a useless exercise in hypothetical daydreaming, but it reeks of the school yard - "I'm not gonna if you're not gonna". Give me a break. Just do the right thing, even when other people wouldn't.

and that's your right to think it's pathetic. No doubt about it, but it's also their choice to assess the situation and see that they weren't needed and move on. We don't actually know what else Rob said because of the editing. He could have dropped to his knees and said a prayer or he could have laid on the ground and laughed. As viewers, we can't really know exactly what happened as we've learned time and again in the post-show interviews.

As for useless exercises...that's sort of the whole point of this board. It's not like these people are actually listening to what we say, so dissecting their motives is rather pointless, too. And since it has already happened, that makes it doubly pointless. But it's fun. And we're good at it.

You know what? I wouldn't be surprised in the least bit if Romber did actually say something like "Yeah, geez I hope these guys didn't get hurt. But you know what? It's a race, Phil." Then the CBS editors cut out the first part, leaving only the "It's a race, Phil" part.

Then again, it's Rob... who knows?

Still, I likely would have done the same thing as Romber did - say "it's a race, we got to keep going and we'll find out if the brothers are okay when we're all at the pitstop."

Like someone said on another thread... in a NASCAR race, when somebody crashes, do the other drivers stop and ask if they're okay? Nope, I don't think so. Nobody ever bashes these drivers for not checking to see if they're okay.

Well, I guess my post's gonna be the only post here bashing Romber.

Yes, I do understand that it IS a race, but I do think that there are situations that are more important than winning a million dollars.

Let's look at the situation here. The decision you are gonna make could potentially determine if someone was gonna live or die. I don't know what his situation was so the only way for me to find out then would've been to stop and ask if my help was needed.

I understand that there was ten people milling about and a medic probably is already on the way, but all those are just ASSUMPTIONS and it really wouldn't have killed Romber to just spare a few seconds of their time to merely ASK if the person's ok. They didn't even need to get out of their car. All they needed to do was to stop for a few seconds.

I also understand that they're not trained medics but have you thought that maybe you could've helped in other ways? Perhaps they might have needed a spare radio, a first aid kit, a car to drive to a nearby hospital, water. I don't know... anything at all. And I guess I'll never know unless I stop to ask.

I think there was an incident a couple years back in my city where there was a badly beaten up person who was on a train full of people. Everyone assumed that the person was ok and other people on the train would help him, but no one ever did, and I think the person died at the end coz he was rushed to the hospital too late. I hate to think that the same thing could've happened to the camera guy.

Everyone seems to think that Lynn and Alex wouldn't have stopped if it were Romber who were injured. I happen to think that they would. I hate Romber probably just as much as Lynn and Alex do, but if I were to be in their situation, I definitely would have. Even if I hadn't gotten out of my car, at least I'd have asked if they were ok. Anyway, whether or not Lynn and Alex would've stopped for Romber is besides the point since we can only speculate what Lynn and Alex would have done, but we can virtually take it for a fact that Romber didn't stop to ask if the camera guy was ok.

I don't know about you but if the camera guy was my dad, I'd have liked to think that someone would have at least stopped just for a second to see whether he needed their help.

what would they have helped by stopping? That's what I don't get. What would having one more car in addition to Lynn and Alex's have helped? What would have having Rob, Amber and their crew--in addition to the crew already present--helped? And how is it worse for THEM to have not stopped than any of the other groups? Because they didn't roll down the window and ask the obvious rhetorical questions?

I would agree if there was potentially a chance that someone could die, but there was positively no chance that someone was going to die based on Rob and Amber's choice. None. If there was a sense of urgency, SOMEONE would have been flagging them down instead of staring them down and daring them to drive on as Lynn and Alex were.

I'm not holding Romber to a different standard. From what I saw, one of the brothers were flagging for the other teams' cars to drive on ahead while I didn't see that happen when Romber were passing them by. If someone were flagging me to go on, that is an indication that they didn't need my help. But if no one did, then I'm merely assuming that no one needs my help when that may or may not have been the case. Of course if someone were to have been desperately flagging me down, it would have been completely wrong of me not to have stopped for them. But in this situation where I have no indication either way whether or not my assistance could have been needed, I would have stopped coz I think when it comes to a matter of a potential life and death situation, I'd rather err on the safe side. I didn't know what the situation was then. It could have been that Lynn, Alex, and the rest of the crew were busy looking for a first aid kit, a radio, whatever. Anyway it really wouldn't have hurt them to spare a second to slow down and ask.

Romber didn't see anyone flagging them down or I'm pretty certain they would have stopped. Likewise, we (the viewers) didn't see anyone flagging them to go on, but is it possible that it did happen and we just didn't see it? L/A may not have seen it either, thus their diatribe, but it is possible. Viewers can only judge by what they are shown, L/A apparently can judge anything they presume because they are godlike.

I'm not saying this happened but the possibility exists.

sooooooo, the drama team was telling the others to go on, but they just stood there like statues when they saw Rob and Amber? Why was that, you think?

Potential life and death? Give.me.a.break. Let's get it in perspective. Rob and Amber were driving up on a relatively flat section of land. They could scope out the situation well before they actually drove by the scene. It wasn't as if they had to rubberneck as the passes in order to see that it wasn't a moment of life or death. There wasn't a sense of urgency or panic. Lynn and Alex are standing around. There are umpteen crew members milling around and the brothers themselves are pacing around, kicking the car, etc. It was NOT a panic situation.

You might have stopped. That's great. More power to you. I wouldn't have if I'd seen that things were okay. Adding more people to that mix was unnecessary and could have actually been a distraction. Emergency personnel don't want a bunch of untrained people wandering around an accident scene, so the worst thing that Rob and Amber or I could have done was stop and get in the way a la Alex and Lynn.

Again, I gotta say I'd have paused to ask if they needed help. I'm not saying that they needed to stop and mill around.

And I agree with trudy that of course the editing could've been deceptive and it was definitely possible that someone did wave for Romber to go on ahead. I'm just basing my comment on what was shown. I'm not saying what Romber did was completely wrong but I just thought they should've at least stopped for a sec to ask if things were ok.

I am with you anotherkim.
But I would of stopped roled down the window and spit. Then rolled the window back up and drove off
You see Romber team is not that evil. But I am. LOL
Let us say Romber stops and get's out. What then? Stand there and look stupid? Donate blood on the spot? Sit there and wait to see if Rob the magnificent can pull a helicopter or an ambulance out of his rear?
I think Romber team is keeping it real in what is deemed a reality show. Do I think any of the people that stopped to ask if any was hurt really gave a rats tail? NO. They are just posing for the camera.
Now it's my turn to pass judgement on the rest of racers for stopping and I am saying they were not sincere nor did they care one way or another.
I wish people would just stop fronting.
Only problem is people now a days don't know how to keep it real.

And how is this even in the slightest bit similar to the situation last night? You had an aerial crew on hand. You had camera crews. You had trained medics at the ready in case something happens to people. There was no chance in hell that the camera guy was going to die because of a lack of medical attention or because Rob and Amber didn't stop. None whatsoever.

Was there an aerial team? I always thought that the shots that were taken from the air were shots that were taken later with doubles just like they did on Survivor.

My only assumption was that they probably had a walkie-talkie with the camera crew and probably a first aid kit. I highly doubt that there was an aerial crew following them everywhere they go or the production would have been awfully expensive.

Without a doubt, there're probably trained medics at the ready, so like what I said in my first post, they probably might not have been able to do much except to ask if their assistance could have been needed. Do they need a spare radio in case the crews's radio batteries ran flat (remember that cameras on the Amazing Race have been known to run out of batteries, so I don't see how that could not have happened with the radios)? I don't know unless I stop to ask, do I? If they said they're fine, then good for them and I'll be on my way.

I bet if it was the opposite way around and it was Romber at the scene while l\a drove through and left then lynne and alex would have been a-holes right. It amazes me how much romber fans justify everything they do regardless of how messed up it is.

They knew they werent in first nowhere near it and they knew they weren't in last so rob was just being the jerk he always has been, because at least seeing if everything would not have affected their standings at all.

I would rather be eliminated for being a nice guy than any other reason, so yes, I would have stopped. Honestly, I can imagine no reason not to stop. Just because I'm in a race for a million bucks doesn't mean I stop being human and stop caring about people. Even if I couldn't do anything for them, sometimes just knowing someone is worried about you is enough to get you through a crisis.

ETA: Still not a Lynn/Alex fan, though. Don't get me wrong.

It is amazing (no pun intended) how naive and hypocritical people can be.

Did the TAR crew stop working when the brothers flipped?
Obviously not, or else we wouldn't have seen anything last night about all of this.
Heck, even "smash'em crash'em" NASCAR will stop the race if an accident is bad enough.
So why all of the hatred for Rob and Amber, but not for the TAR crew?

I mean, you're not even a little upset at the cameraman and soundman in Rob and Amber's car?
They, afterall, did nothing to help their fellow crewmen.

Some have said this sets a bad example for people in everyday life.
Anyone using a reality show as a barometer for proper conduct, needs professional help.

And let's not forget about clever editing and the purpose behind it.

These people have a cameraman and soundman with them all the time, but just the soundman was with Gretchen when she fell? We didn't see her fall bcause it made better TV for our first sight of her to be after her face was all bloodied.

And any good show has a villian. TAR has ingeniously created 2.
I bet we have seen every time Lynn and Alex have said something bad about Rob and Amber, and vice versa.

Why don't people want to focus on the positive?
When Meredith and Gretchen lost EVERYTHING, I said it was a waste because there was no way they could be competitive in the next leg with that much of a handicap.
Them not only surviving, but seeing Ray (I'm not gonna lose to these old people. They're about 2 decades past this.) and Deana get sent home, made it that much sweeter.

Or was that just good editing?

I thought this was a Rob-bashing thread. (No need to bash Amber. There's nothing alive in there to bash.)

It wasn't just that he didn't stop; it was the comment he made about it being a competition, so that was the crucial reason why he went on. It was also his comments about Gretchen faking her fall and injury, about refusing to give the old folks the time of day, much less ten cents.

It's naive and hypocritical to twist his words and actions around so that they are somehow admirable.

That's not to say that all the other teams are lily-white, but at least they are Racers, not Survivors who have imposed themselves on another reality show.

Please give Rob a dictionary so he can look up the meaning of the word sincerity. And help him with the spelling!

Phil wasn't laughing when they arrived at the pit stop. He knows them better than we do, and he looked to have had it up to here with their antics.

How many more times are they going to run into someone who's going to take them by the hand and lead them on their way?

I thought this was a Rob-bashing thread.

Actually, it was more of an invitation to bash ME for saying that I wouldn't have stopped either if you want to get right down to it.

Surely you realize that his comments about Gretchen faking her fall were sarastic. Rob's tongue is planted so far into his cheek that it practically protruds from his ear.

The other teams lie. The other teams berate each other. The other teams are mean and spiteful. Why is that okay?

Rob has a degree in psychology, so I'm guessing he can probably spell sincerity. He may work in construction and speak with an accent, but he's not an idiot. If we want to talk about dumb, we could start in on some of the other competitors and go all day.

Phil wasn't laughing, but he was also smirking. Phil says what he says for good TV. Period. He knows that Rob and Amber are the best thing to happen to TAR ratings since Mirna and Charla.

And I would imagine they'll run into people who will help them as long as they are gracious and nice enough to warrant that help. Unlike those who get into little tussles with the natives in the markets or who stumble around lost for hours because they don't think to ask for help.

Do you believe there's any ground between vilifying someone and admiring them? I certainly do, but you seem to want to go from one extreme to another.

If you didn't notice the whimsical tone when Rob was talking about Gretchen, please don't ever go to a comedy club. It would be like sending a blind person to a Monet exibit.

As far as giving money. The biggest villians out of TAR 6, Jonathan and Victoria, gave the most. That really helped their game and image, didn't it?

Rob and Amber IMPOSED themselves on TAR? Do you realize you said that?

As far as your Amber comment. There are a lot of contestants who would have fared much better if they'd had her attitude. Not once have you heard her berate Rob's decision when things aren't going good.

How many more times will they run into people that take up their time wanting to meet them and get an autograph and a picture. That fame is a two edged sword.

From what we have seen, Rob was the only one to know his boat driver's name (Carlos) and even traded hats with him, Rob reached up and gave a cab driver a slap on the shoulder and told him he was doing a good job instead of just saying "faster, faster, Por favor", they got lost going to the eating challenge and instead of freaking out like most do, they kept their cool and even laughed about stumbling across it. That's called making a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

If Phil is fed up with their antics, he couldn't have been too pleased when the brothers were like "What?" when he reminded them of their camera man.

The spirit of any game is to do your best within the rules. I fail to see how Rob and Amber have not done that.

If you wanna see everyone looking out for everyone else, watch Barney!

>It's naive and hypocritical to twist
>his words and actions around
>so that they are somehow
>admirable.

the jury would still be out on this one. from my comprehension of people's posts, most weren't admiring Rob for not stopping. they were just saying they would do the same thing. in fact, when you mentioned the word "admirable" that would be the first time that word or idea came into my head. it never was a question for me to find his actions admirable or not. it was a question of whether i would do it or not. or whether i agree with what he did or not. and my answer: i wouldn't have stopped. i would slow down cuz instinct as a driver seeing an accident is to hit the brakes just in case there would be unseen debris from the wreckage or someone thrown from the car which in essence is looking out for my own safety first. and in slowing down i could assess the situation. and from what i saw, this is what Rob did. nothing about admiration there.

as for twisting his words around, people have just been quoting what he said. to be more precise, quoting what he said that was edited into the sequence. so the worst people are doing are speculating on whether Rob said other things that were not included in the edit. so i don't see any twisting there, therefore i don't see the connection to being naive and hypocritical.

>Please give Rob a dictionary so
>he can look up the
>meaning of the word sincerity.
>And help him with the
>spelling!

you definitely know how to spell sincerity but i think it is you who needs to look up the definition in the dictionary. if anything, it's Rob's sincerity that gets him into trouble and why people hate and bash him so. he speaks his mind without having to worry about what other people may think. if he doesn't want to dole out money he doesn't. he does what he does without having to defend or justify. that's pretty much sincere because that is how he is. he didn't stop to ask if everyone was ok. at least he was sincere. i'm not saying that all those who did stop to ask were not sincere. they probably were.

>Phil wasn't laughing when they arrived
>at the pit stop. He

see now here, you're speculating. who really knows what Phil thinks?

As many more times as it will take to help them win the race.

Personnal attacks against other members of the community are against the guidelines of the site.
If you feel you've seen a personnal attack against someone, click the Alert button and inform the moderators about it.

Disagreeing with someone elses opinion is not a personnal attack, it's a discussion.


Edit to add, that I went back and read the responses, and saw no attack. But if you think the poster was under attack, you should alert a moderator instead of crying wolf.

I don't think I mentioned that this poster was under "personal" attack. No I didn't. Everyone on this thread had a different opinion in the polar opposite direction than this particular poster which was what I was referring too. And the comment was not directed at the Romber supporters but actually a poster whose comments (THE MINORITY on this thread and possibly board all together) were not in support of Romber.

Funny how you always read something into my posts that wasn't there and not even a comment directed at you in the first place. But thanks for letting me know about how I can alert the moderator when I feel I am being "personally attacked." I will certainly remember to do that in the future.

Look, I'm tired of you talking in circles.
In your post number 124 of this thread, you said


agree with ya Ziapal! But watch out, YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK!!!!

What did you mean by that, if not to warn the poster of what you thought was an attack?

I have also seen you post all over these forums, warning people they were under "attack", or pointing out where you saw "attacks" against someone.
If you are going to continue to warn posters about what you seem to think are attacks against them , I am just suggesting you should notify a Moderator about these "attacks", by using the Alert button. Since "attacks" against another poster are against the rules here.

So either Alert it, or stop claiming you see personnal attacks.
Because quite frankly, I am finding your posts tedious, and hostile to the discussion.

Why don't you just choose not to respond to my posts then? If you find them "tedious, and hostile to the discussion" you don't have to respond or say anything, that's a choice you make. Your posts are always openly hostile to the MINORITY of Romber haters. There are only a few of us that are bold enough to post on this particular message board that we don't like Romber. And being that we are the minority, Romber lovers come out in full force and "attack" our OPINIONS (hence why I am saying they are under attack) about Romber. Being that it is one poster's opinion being attacked by 4-5 posters who believe in the polar opposite direction, I think that is an attack. I have, up to this point, not alerted any moderator of any personal attacks or anything so that has not been my goal in saying they were under attack (AGAIN IT WAS NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK I SPEAK OF). It's my perogative to support the minority and call it an attack. It may not be a personal attack in the sense that they are being called dumb or stupid (though I have seen that done and do not appreciate it!) or something personal but it is an attack in the sense that they are pretty much alone in their opinion and 4-5 posters are giving opinions in the direction of loving on Romber.

I think it LAUGHABLE that my posts are hostile to the discussion. Those that love on Romber (THE MAJORITY) are actually the ones that have been pretty hostile towards those who hate on Romber (the minority). Some people have called the minority on these boards' opinions Dumb and Stupid. I don't recall any Romber haters starting their post with those words (but then again there are only a handful of us). Maybe you haven't noticed but it seems that only those who love Romber are welcomed to the group, asked "can we be friends?" and so forth. Which indicates to me that if you have the audacity to hate on Romber and post about it, you are in hostile territory---and the minority on these boards.

Frankly, concerning yourself, your posts are always openly friendly and accepting to those who agree to love on Romber (majority). Your posts have, for the most part, been rude and mean spirited to those who don't (minority) love on Romber (I am not just talking about myself here either, I noticed this on another board with terriblue, don't have her permission to mention this but I do only to show I am not alone on this issue). So that being said, I will not reply to any posts you leave and I hope from this point on you will have the same courtesy for me---I would appreciate it.

151. "Don't bash other posters"
OK, this tangent stops now. Bashing other posters is completely unacceptable.

Yes, there are two widely different camps on Romber. It's one thing to state an opinion on their gameplay. It's another to start commenting on the posters who feel one way or another, or to get into personal arguments on the forums. Leave other posters out of it. We're here to discuss the show, not each other.

Look, Anotherkim, you have a point, but let's look at the situation carefully

Brian and Greg and walking around, clearly fine. The boyfriends are milling around, clearly fine. There is a cameraman on the ground, with his head in someone's lap, clearly not so fine. There are no medics around. There is a very trashed vehicle up ahead

Rob and Amber peer at the scene ahead.

The first comments out of their mouths are not: "Geez, an accident, thank God everyone seems OK". They are not "Looks like help's on the way"

They were: "I hope no one's hurt." Hope, not _know_. This indicates they had no idea whether or not anything happened and if anyone was seriously injured.

Later on at the pitstop, Phil asks them if they saw if anyone at the accident. He proceeds to grill Team Malfoy by saying: "You just left them there."

Now Rob is a lot of things, but stupid and bad at public relations are not 2 of them. He does not try to say the logical and face saving thing - that they knew no one was hurt and that he and Amber couldn't have done anything. He simply justified it by it being a race. And he didn't smile or look indignant. If anything, he seemed a little nervous.

To me, this says that he didn't make a quick judgment call and decide that his help was not needed or welcome, it says he decided that regardless of what happened or who was hurt, he was going ahead. And he can tell himself he's not a medic, but how does he know the people in the crash didn't need water, a compress, or even a walkie talkie?

As for Lynn and Alex not stopping for Team Malfoy,all I can do is quote what you said below and say that you cannot make personal judgment calls when you don't know for sure how someone would react in a specific situation. Until we actually see them in this situation, we can't say for sure that Lynn and Alex would do whatever

Well, we don't actually KNOW what the first words out of their mouths were since we weren't there, but that's a debate for another day.

If it was a true emergency situation, though, let me ask you this since we're being all logical. Do you think that the cameraman from Lynn and Alex's crew would have been standing there filming or would he have been helping out? Wouldn't someone have frantically been flagging down Rob and Amber's car asking for a walkie talkie and asking for help if it were TRULY life or death? If the situation weren't under control, don't you think someone would have indicated that as Rob and Amber drove on by? They didn't. It didn't appear to be a serious accident.

This is NOT the same as driving up on a wreck on the side of the interstate. Not at all.

A flipped over car and a guy lying on the side of the road with plenty of help and no signs of obvious distress does not give the appearance of an emergency. It is an unfortunate situation.

And they have nothing to save face for. It IS a race. They didn't need to stop because there was nothing for them to do at that poit.

103. "RE: Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either..."
can I just add a ditto to what Kimmah said.

I'm sure it was Buggy who alluded to this before. It's no different than Nascar. I dont think for one second anyone involved in the production was so inept as to not anticipate that if they've got humvees or SUV's traveling in foreign terrain over bumpy roads with drivers that may or may not have ANY real knowledge how to handle said vehicles...breath..that it was conceivable that someone might flip one.

So in the context of the race, it would make sense that they were prepared which it indeed seemed that they were and that other racers would know that they were prepared. For all the safety equipment they had at the cooling towers for the fast forward, does anyone think that they had no medical team or response plan in place in case something still happened to someone there? It's no different than to assume the same for the dessert in a humvee either.


What if you want to be supportive but you can't stand listening to people bitch ~Edie

It's true that we didn't see the brothers or Lynn and Alex flagging down anyone. However, people have been known to look perfectly fine and then pass out from shock, internal injuries and what not.

If this were a true emergency situation, then I'd have to say that Brian and Greg would have been SOOL (%$%& out of luck) because Rob and Amber didn't even slow down, meaning they had 10-15 seconds to to assess the situation. And if they decided their help wasn't needed, it would have been logical for them to say: "Brian and Greg are fine, we're going" instead of "This is a race; I'm not stopping for them"

I'm not quite sure what your point about "they have nothing to save face for" is. Do you mean they had no obligation to put on a good face and ask if Brian and Greg were fine, because this is a race and whatever you do during the race is justified? If that's the case, then I'd say yes, they can do whatever they feel like to cement their position in the race, but they and their fans better accept that Team Malfoy will be called on the behavior. Ray was justified in making all the ageist comments about Meredith and Gretchen, after all, you're allowed to trash talk a competitor, but he should expect to get called an a$$ because of it.

If you meant that Rob and Amber have nothing to save face for because they had good rational reasons for not helping, then I'd say again - why didn't he bring up those reasons? Rob is probably the most camera savvy of the whole bunch; why let himself get called out on the mat and get embarassed like a naughty child if he had perfectly justifiable reasons for driving on? He looked more than a little awkward when Phil asked him about leaving the team.

All those thinking it was a terrible thing to drive by have you ever passed by an accident without stopping or checking to see if everyone is O.K. if there was already someone else on the scene? Of course you have. You had places to go at that time and you asumed everything was well in hand because no one was waving you over, others had already had stopped etc. Di you even slow down and roll down your window and inquire? Again of course you didn't.

Nothing much different here IMO. Rob and Amber noted the accident and saw Lynn and Alex on the scene. No one was jumping up and down for Rob and Amber to stop. No one flagged them over. No one did anything yet the people on the scene watched them approach and drive by. No one gave any sort of indication of needing any further help and just let them drive by. Why the heck would they stop and/or slow down and ask questions in those circumstances? It's hard to play the high and mighty superior morality card if you don't even wave them over to stop if it was such a necessity for them to do so. At most you can say they should have rolled the window down but not doing that isn't a big deal given the circumstances IMO.

Had they just driven by when no on else was on the scene then perhaps these things can be said but as it stands there is nothing to suggest they should have stopped and everything to suggest that the situation was in order and they should continue on (as evidenced by every other team getting waved on).

There is nothing worse to someone providing first aid (as the other crew folks were doing) than having a bunch of people stop and start asking questions!

There is nothing more annoying to me than people who think and pretend they are great people and then spend camera time telling the audience everything that is wrong with person A and B and telling half stories to other people to colour opinions of persons A and B. It's completely two-faced IMO.

All I know is that Rob and Amber have consistently outwitted, outplayed the other competitors thus far in this race and have outlasted many teams up to this point. They are playing the game the way it has begged to be played. They are exploiting the rules and seeking and using any possible advantage. And they are doing it themselves and not riding on other team coattails to get this far unlike what we've seen over the past Amazing Race series.

As a matter a fact, I have pulled over for accidents when there are no emergency personnel about. In fact, I spent the a good portion of the evening, hunched over an SUV, trying to help a family with a flat. It wasn't life-threatening, but it was a pain in the rear and they needed help. And I wasn't racing for a million, but changing a tire in formal gown and heels in Chicago weather is no picnic


All I know is that Rob and Amber have consistently outwitted, outplayed the other competitors thus far in this race

That makes it sound like they've been Colin/Christie smoking their competition. They've placed first twice out of 6 legs


and have outlasted many teams up to this point.

Every team that is still remaining has outlasted several teams


They are playing the game the way it has begged to be played. They are exploiting the rules and seeking and using any possible advantage.

Umm, what was their brilliant strategy and rule bender for this episode? They blew time waiting at the Fast Forward. They followed another team that didn't have a clue where they were going, resulting in Team Malfoy getting lost as well. Amber wandered around the marketplace aimlessly for a good 15 minutes before that local latched onto her

But regardless of how good they are, they can still be jerkwads

We Romber dislikers have to stick together, aaron2kristie. The odd thing is, that I think a lot of their fans agree with us - notice how many people said they would have checked at least.

TB, as a Romber fan, I have to say that I don't agree with you at all. I wouldn't have stopped and I most likely wouldn't have slowed down to see what the problem is either.
Common human decency has nothing to do with it IMO. As stated by ALOT of the other posts (mainly kim's)the road they were on was a mostly flat road..no one else was frantic and I'm sure they could tell that there was no death, danger, mauling, or whatever else...If it had been worse than it was, I would be willing to bet $ that Rob would've stopped.

Are you trying to say that *if* they had at least rolled the window down and asked..everyone okay? (while driving by) then you'd be okay with them? Just wondering...

I never asked if you had pulled over because most have done that as well. I asked have you ever driven by when someone else was already on the scene and the situation looked to be under control. You know that whole if you live in a glass house don't throw rocks thing. When they drove by you had 4 or 5 people standing around and 1 person being adequately attended by a second person. It didn't take a 5 minute question and answer period to determine that all it took was a look to survey the situation. Unless you have some sort of additional expertise to lend to the situation the only thing you are is a hindrance.

No I didn't. YOu may have read that into it but what I said was that they have been the most consistent team in the race.

You don't say. BUt some have been hanging on and only remaining in th erace because of other teams misfortunes or stupid mistakes. Rob and Amber are a team that are getting by through racing a good race (as I think are Lynn and Alex).

Did I say they were brilliant on rule use in every leg or this one? No. Amber wandered around for a good 15 minutes...you know this how? So did other teams I'm guessing given it was a large market.heck Gretchen was buying diapers at what looked to be a convenience type store located by the market. Yep they waited at the fast forward...how long did they wait? you don't know. Nor do you know whether or not they had rightly predicted that it was a non-elimination leg. Nor do you know how far out of the way that fast forward was...it may have been a few minute side trip and very little time was lost. They made up whatever time was lost by taking the smarter of the two detour roadblock tasks. They have never ever been in any sort of real danger of finishing last on any leg of this race. It could change of course but right now they are the most consistent team and the best team at using all the little tricks teams you need to win the race.

>But regardless of how good they
>are, they can still be
>jerkwads

Didn't say they couldn't be. Nowhere did I say it. What I said was based on the editing I saw there was no reason for them to stop, and that it was editing. You have no idea if there was communication to the Rob and Ambers sound and camera guy etc etc etc etc. They assessed the situation, saw another team had stopped, that that team wasn't doing anything useful (i.e. it was not a crisis), the people weren't flaggin them down, the person who was hurt was already receiving assistance and they drove on. Nowhere is their any evidence they didn't slow down and scope out the situation. Seemed quite the opposite from what I saw. They clearly went by slow enough to see and account for everyone and everything. They didn't roll down the window? So what. It really isn't a big deal nor does it tell you a thing about what kind of people they are IMO. If it does I can tell you that every single one of us in this world is a complete jerk.

This situation did fit - the family wasn't injured or anything and the dad was a big burly guy who was already halfway under the car. Everything was under control, but it turns out it was a good thing that my group asked, because the family had no flashlight and the spare was attached under the car. The process went a lot fast with me holding the flashlight, the dad and my date pulling the spare loose and the rest of the guys bringing in tools from their car. So I feel perfectly justified sitting in my glass house, thank you very much

Nonetheless, if you're still hanging on, it means you've outperformed and outraced other teams

I pieced together a timeline from observing when Lynn arrived at the market and when Amber arrived at the market and what stage Amber was at when Lynn was done. Amber had nothing when Lynn left and that's when she ran into her 'guardian angel'. Even with the extra help, Rob and Amber were behind 4 teams at the mat and the camera did not show any other teams coming up as each team arrived to the mat. So estimating a 3 minute gap between each team, that's at least a 15 minute difference. I could be wrong though

Time will tell. I'd argue that Ron and Kelly are better at all the tricks needed - Team America has never been shown getting lost, almost missing a flight or coming in last

I stand by my statement that if Rob knew everything were under control and his help wasn't needed, thoe would have been the first words out of his mouth instead of "it's a race, Phil." Rob is more camera savvy than any other racer on the show and if he had a justification better than RAAACCCE, I credit him with enough smarts to use that excuse instead of standing there shuffling his feet while Phil is giving him the evil eye

1) were there other people already pulled over hanging around doing nothing? Not from your description of the situation.

2) IT WASN"T THE QUESTION I ASKED! The question was not have you ever stopped but have you EVER driven by. Two different questions. You answered one I never asked!

>Not if you have equipment they
>need or communication you can
>offer. I stand by my
>earlier comment that if Rob
>knew everything was fine he
>would have said so instead
>of letting Phil make a

>the mat

They have the same equipment as the other team that had already stopped and wasn't doing anything! What was the point in stopping. They clearly acknowledged the accident, that they felt no one was hurt, that the other team was doing nothing (i.e. not waving them over or anything) and that they didn't have anything to offer the situation. If you want to read anything in to this read into the brothers leaving and continuing the race when the replacement car came yet having no idea the guy was O.K. based on Phil mentioning it to them and them looking releived. Or for that matter every team continued the race without knowing the status of the injured person.


>I pieced together a timeline..... I could
>be wrong though

yes you could be wrong because you didn't edit the show. It seemed to show she had nothing but so what? They didn't lose much time that couldn't be made up elsewhere. They were never in real danger of being eliminated. I fully acknowledge it was their worst leg of the race but their worst leg was still better than most other teams normal leg.

>So
>>did other teams I'm guessing
>>given it was a large
>>market.heck Gretchen was buying diapers

>I don't know that, but how

>Anwer is, neither of us

Exactly so the only thing we have to go on is their finishes and consistently being with the top of the pack, winning and never being close to being eliminated. That's a very strong consistent race.

>I could say they would have
>finished last if they hadn't
>had that South African fan

They had over a two hour lead on the last place team when they started the next leg. Speculate away but I think in this case speculation will not lead you to that conclusion.

Why? For all you know Phil was simply fed information as Rob and Amber didn't stop at the accident not that they saw and felt the situation was under control because there wa already a team at the site doing nothing. For all you know there was editing or that Rob and Amber explained why they didn't stop beyond it's a race etc etc etc. You don't know but are simply SPECULATING all of this. That in the end is the point. Based on the editing of the situation which is all you have to go on there was no obvious reason for them to stop. End of story.

This situation did fit - the family wasn't injured or anything and the dad was a big burly guy who was already halfway under the car. Everything was under control, but it turns out it was a good thing that my group asked, because the family had no flashlight and the spare was attached under the car. The process went a lot fast with me holding the flashlight, the dad and my date pulling the spare loose and the rest of the guys bringing in tools from their car. So I feel perfectly justified sitting in my glass house, thank you very much

But did this family have a sound guy and a camera man with a radio and a helicopter and a chase car with a medic following them, and another car full already stopped to help them? Cuz evidently Brian and Greg did. So whether you did or didn't stop for that family is immaterial to whether Rob shoulda stopped because the two situations are COMPLETELY different. You can sit in your glass house all you want, but that judgemental attitude makes you no better than how you see Rob, IMO.

For all you know there was editing or that Rob and Amber explained why they didn't stop beyond it's a race etc etc etc. You don't know but are simply SPECULATING all of this.

And that's the key right there. The show is being edited to tell a story, an none of us really know what's happening. In this case, though, some are speculating based on their feelings about the characters rather than based on facts that we know.

That makes it sound like they've been Colin/Christie smoking their competition. They've placed first twice out of 6 legs

Only 2 first place finishes in the first 6 legs? Here is the exhaustive list of teams in the history of this show who have 2 non-FF first place finishes in the first 6 legs:
Kris/Jon
Aaron/Hayden
Colin/Christie (3 total: 2 non-FF, 1 FF)
Ken/Gerrard (3 total: 2 non-FF, 1 FF)

That's it. End of list.

Comparing them to Colin/not-Colin, in particular:

R/A's finishes first 6 legs: 3, 1, 5, 1, 5, 2 (1st place finishes: 2, Average finish: 2.67)

C/C's finishes first 6 legs: 7, 6, 1, 2, 1, 1 (1st place finishes: 3, Average finish: 3.00)

Looks pretty similar to me at this stage. YMMV.

I am a romber fan but I do think that Rob should have at least slowed and asked if they were all set. Drtantalum's comparison to stopping on a highway are not the same in my opinion. In "civilization" you have cell phones, emergency service etc. Also the speeds are much reduded driving on dirt. They actually seemed to be going pretty slow by the wreck so it wouldn't have hurt to pause for a few.
With that said, every time a segment ends I wonder what the tension is like between Romber and most, if not all, the other teams. They spend a lot of down time together and Rob and Amber don't seem to have made any friends. So with L/A already stopped and other my congenial teams directly behind, Rob may have decided it wasn't worth it.
I know this contradicts my first statement. I don't think Rob was correct. I was just trying to give a reason why he may not have wanted to stop. Other than the obvious race thing.

This is why I.heart.the Kimmah! I was actually at my Dad's watching this. Now I like Rob and Amber, my Dad CANNOT stand them. He thinks they have an unfair advantage because they've been on reality shows before, etc., etc. I've tried to talk reason into him, but that's beside the point. After the Rob and Amber drive by, I looked at Dad and said I would have done the same thing and he said he would have too. It's a similar situation to going by an accident on the road. If I was the first one on the scene, I would have stopped to see that everyone was okay and offer any assistance. If there are others on the scene, as Lynn and Alex were, I would have kept going.

What really ticked me off about this whole sequence was how Lynn and Alex told Ron and Kelly what Rob and Amber had done and Kelly was all "We have to beat them now, that's not fair what they did." Okay, don't judge if you weren't even there!

I've always been taught that if you pass the scene of an accident and there is already help there, you do NOT stop unless you can actually HELP in some way. If you can't help, you are nothing but a hindrance to those who can help. I wasn't aware that Rob or Amber had great medical expertise that could have been helpful to the cameraman.

As for asking if everyone was ok, I don't know if I would have said anything either when I saw Lynn/Alex standing there, too. The happy boys have made it very clear that they hate Romber, and anything Romber does will be used against them by those two. If they had said anything, Lynn/Alex probably would have sniped "I hate those b!tches" or something when they left.

As another poster said, if Rob and Amber are going to be bashed for not stopping, then we would have to bash the whole TAR crew as well. That would include the sound people and the cameramen who were (obviously) still shooting the scene. Why don't we bring Phil into it as well? Pretty uncaring of him to just stay there at the PitStop instead of rushing to the scene where help was urgently needed. I wish Rob had turned the tables on Phil and asked him why didn't he go to see if everyone was ok. I'm sure if he had, Phil would have replied "This is a TV show."

I seem to remember something that I haven't seen anyone mention, but I didn't tape the show so I can't be sure.

When they first got in the vehicles, didn't Phil mention something about each team having safety personnel with them due to the danger of this portion of the race?

Could someone verify how bad or good my memory is?

What actually to you all (fellow posters) would have to occur for you to believe Rob and Amber should have stopped/slowed down/asked out the window if all was okay--whatever? I realize this is a game but is there anything you can think of that if it happened and Romber did not show signs of caring (by stopping/slowing down/asking out the window if all was okay) you would think that this action was unacceptable/indecent/immoral (you pick your own word).

And if your answer is "NOTHING would make me stop, it's a race!", please give a few examples of what disasters/atrocities whatever you are picturing that you would not stop for. I am just wondering if there is an actual line for anyone or is it always a race? That's at the heart of this particular inquiry.

174. "Excellent Question!"
I'm going to answer what would meake me stop within the context of the race (because I think this is an important distinction).

Requirement #1: The situation must appear to an actual emergency

Requirement #2: There must be something that I think I could do to help the situation (not having a cell phone I don't know what I could have done in this situation)

Requirement #3: I am the only one that could help (not that I am the only person in the world that could do so) but the only one on the scene capable of doing so. If the person's already recieving help, then they don't need me. (Also research indicates the more people around during an emergency the less likely you are to get the help you need)

Sorry to those of you who it offends, but I could not resist referencing research. It's just the way that I am

126. "RE: Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either..."
yes you got bashed good too along with Rob and it took a while to get to the last post on this thread. (had to stop along the way cuz i couldn't resist responding to certain ones!) so this would be my response to as much posts that i can remember afer much mulling over and absorption of people's ideas in one fell swoop.

i wouldn't have stopped either. i would've slowed down. why? instinct. any good driver upon seeing something on the road or on the path of the direction you are driving whether it be an accident, flashing light or something that may have moved in front of your vehicle will downshift, press on the brakes or do whatever to slow down so as to avoid having an accident YOURSELF. i slow down to assess the situation. so if its a vehicular accident, i 1st look out for people who may have been thrown out of the vehicle cuz you could end up running over them. 2nd i look out for debris lying around that may damage my vehicle and cause me to lose control. this whole scenario seems similar to the whole Rob not stopping thing. couldn't believe that some have posted that Rob didn't even slow down. impossible i say. if they had kept on going at the speed they were driving passing all the other racers, the accident scene would've been a blur. they did show their cameraman's POV from inside the vehicle travelling slow enough to see the brothers and L/A standing and someone lying down being cradled by someone else. but being from film production i know this shot could have been from any other racer's cameraman. so the solid proof that they did slow down was that they were able to recognize what was happening outside and say a what they said in the edited sequence, instead of heartlessly and obliviously zooming off past them as SOME had implied, not all of you.

most of you pretty much voiced your opinions on what you would've done and passed judgement on Rob not stopping based on many things. now personal choice in certain situations i will not argue with any of you. if it really is in your nature to actually stop to ask if anyone was hurt regardless of whether you can really offer help or not, well then good for you. but i don't find it particularly admirable or courteous or compassionate. that's how you are and hey great. but don't call us evil or rude or lacking compassion or decency if we wouldn't do the same thing you would do. and i really don't think it would be possible to both slow down and ask if everything was ok which some people said they would do. imagine it, your vehicle is still moving (because you didn't do a full stop, you are only slowing down) so you stick your head out the window and yell at the people as your move away hoping that you get an answer before you are out of earshot. does it really make sense to do that?

now some of you are probably asking why should you not call me or Rob lacking of compassion if i wouldn't stop to check even for a few seconds if everything's ok. it is because i KNOW with official certainty about all the safety precautions that TAR has at its disposal on every leg of the race because i was part of the local production outfit hired by TAR5 on their Southeast Asian leg. There are safety vehicles (called "chase cars or boats") trailing each racer's vehicle, each with a full complement of emergency medical equipment, communication devices and trained personnel. I saw all this available and i live in a 3rd world country so the african desert should be no different in terms of what safety precautions were available to racers and crew there. Helicopters for aerial footage with the vehicles in the shots are not 2nd unit shots, meaning scenes filmed at another time. It is too expensive to recreate those shots plus they have limited time in each country. now the shots that show landscapes and others, those are filmed by the local crew before the racers reach that country or region. so it is NOT an assumption nor presumption on the part of the posters who have noted that there were enough people around to help the brthers and their crew. PLUS each team's camera/soundman crew are linked via wireless remote headsets and are constantly updated during the progress of the race and any emergency message can be relayed to the racers if needed because they would be the only ones who could hear the broadcast. so we don't need to speculate about waving anyone down, waving flags, shooting flares up in the air, etc. there is enough communication for EVERYONE to know including the racers if there was a situation dire enough to have everyone stop for everyone's safety. now this is MY assumption. Rob may have asked the crew what the situation was and they may have said everything was under control so Rob decided to drive on. if i was in Rob's place i would've done this and continued on. i don't think he or i would be less compassionate.

i'm not gonna comment on L/A stopping, or that the crew kept filming despite the wreck, or life and death situations. kimmah (may i call you kimmah?) i agree with you totally, i wouldn't have stopped knowing what i know that goes on in the production of TAR and i hope that i helped paint a better picture of the situation so that you get less bashed.

(Trivia: Colin actually yelled at me cuz i was drinking water in front of him after his rock climb on the ascender, saying i was heartless. but we were told not to help out the racers in any way so i wasn't sure if i could offer him the bottle.)

I am pretty sure the majority of the people on this thread have not bashed "Kim." In fact, those who have said they would have stopped have been the minority on this thread, so I am not sure why you are under the impression there has been a bashing of "Kim."

um...the title of the thread is " Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either...", but yes, semantically i may have written it in a way that i was saying people were personally attacking/bashing/criticizing kim's opinion. but not her person.

but if you look back at your latest post, you said that "we are humans first, racers second", that's pretty condescending even without the actually hearing the tone of your voice saying that to us who believe that your sentiment doesn't really count. so i take that as bashing. (my apoogies though because english is my 2nd language so maybe i have the wrong definition or idea of what "bashing" really is.)

Oh, okay. Thank you for clarifying that. I thought you meant those on this thread were bashing Kim's opinion when in fact the majority have supported it.

Well Kim, the original poster on this board, states down the thread that she would be the kind of racer to check her humanity at the door rather than the kind that believes the way I do "We are humans first, Racers second." So I am pretty sure that this is at the core of what actually divides Romber lovers and haters. One group believes it's a race and no matter what the cost it is a race (besides who we are in this game IS NOT who we in life anyways, right?)! The other group believes that humanity, goodwill, should win out in the racer's character over the fact that it is a race. That is my take on our Romber divided groups.

But no, my statement was not bashing on anyone. I quotted from racers in the last episode!

I should clarify that I would not:

1. kick puppies
2. trip old people
3. pee on anyone's sleeping bag...except maybe mirna/charla (the tall one's_
4. put gum in anyone's hair
5. try to stiff a local
6. make fun of anyone not associated with the race other than those people who were first rude to me

I would:

1. lie to another team if it got me ahead
2. lead another team astray if it got me ahead
3. give out vague or misleading information
4. bribe a local
5. leave another team in the dust if I had to
6. not give them money if they were out because they were the last ones to arrive in a non-elim leg
7. give help if they were injured and I could be of actual assistance
8. give help to any team that I was in an alliance with at that time


I would expect the same from the other teams I was racing against, too. If they DIDN'T give me false information when they had the chance, then stupid move on their parts. If I choose to follow another team blindly, good for them if they lead me in the wrong direction. Serves me right.

This whole "we are humans first" concept sounds great when you're at a keyboard, but the idea that you can play a game that involves racing around looking for clues with out schemeing and lying or misleading people is naive...unless you don't want to win. It's not personal. It's part of the GAME. Rather like the whole "outwit" part of Survivor.

I wonder just how "human" teams are supposed to be in this competition?

Should all the men let the ladies board planes and busses first? Should they hold doors for the old people team? I can just hear it now...

Rob - "After you"
Lynn- "No, after you"
Rob- "No I insist, after YOU"
Merideth- "No, I couldn't possibly take your money"
Joyce- "But, I insist"
Ray- "Look, there's been an accident"
ALL- "Let's all stop, and wring our hands"

PLUS each team's camera/soundman crew are linked via wireless remote headsets and are constantly updated during the progress of the race and any emergency message can be relayed to the racers if needed because they would be the only ones who could hear the broadcast

I knew it! Thank you. Finally an informed perspective on this debate. Your insight confirms exactly what I have been saying about this incident all along. Thank you for sharing your experience.

Anybody who has an issue with Romber's actions regarding the accident, should need nothing more than your post to explain Rombers decision to continue to race, rather than DAW it up for the camera like Lynn and Alex chose to do.

First of all, yes, you may call me kimmah.

Second, thank you for the clarification on the way that they run things on TAR. I have never for a second bought the idea that Rob and Amber were the lifeline to civilization that some have tried to portray them as. The racers knew this. They know that they are somewhat like hamsters in a cage running through tubes while the TAR people watch. No way did Rob and Amber need to stop and offer up some form of communication or first aid. This isn't real life. Not even close and it can't be compared to it.

Third, I don't really feel bashed, but thanks for the support. I just totally disagree with those who see what Rob and Amber did as somehow inhumane. I've beaten that arguement to death. To me, this is a game. One has to have a game plan. I don't have a problem with bribing a bus driver at all. I think it's smart. I don't have a problem with snagging a taxi, either (or with Lynn and Alex doing it right back). It's smart playing. It's not 'evil'. You have to weaken the other teams to move ahead and that's part of the game.


You are my hero now, too.

LOL

thank you for the welcome, my Divine Miss Kimmah!

and thank you too, the Benevolent Buggy (i'd want to call you Buggah too, but its just too close to the british term for...uh...you know what.)

i think its pretty safe for me to share whatever information i have from my experience with TAR5. that waiver/release form/scary legal document they had me sign would guarantee that my grandchildren's children will still be paying CBS for breach of confidentiality had i said anything to anyone before the episodes where i was involved in were aired in the U.S.! just played it safe and lurked for one season before finally jumping in on the "discussions".

funny how so many people assume they know so many things from what they just see on TV-and how they get so affected by it. in my case, i know Colin was portrayed as the evil villain, but from the few days tailing him he just seemed really intense and tightly wound. he was actually harder on himself than christie but what they edited in was him arguing with her all the time. i'm pretty sure it's the same case for Rob and Amber...but i wouldn't want to be too presumptuous there...

if you need to know anything else about the production of TAR, just gimme a holler!

130. "RE: Bash away....I wouldn't have stopped either..."
Donno who exactly I'm responding to so started a new thread that probably addresses many people's comments.

First of all, I rewatched the car flip section and this is an exact transcript of what Rob said (as edited by TAR producers):

"Ah, car flipped over.
This is a competition, but we dont want anybody to get hurt.
You know, that's not fun for anybody...
There was NO WAY we're stopping! Well, it's still a competition - let's not get crazy"

And at the mat:
Phil: Now did you guys see a wreck at all today?
Rob: Yeah, we saw the brothers, and Alex and Lynn.
Phil: Did you guys stop at all?
Rob (smiling, but I admit he looks a bit guilty/sheepish): No
Amber (laughs with GLEE! What's with that?): No, we didn't.
Rob (now he's looking gleeful in the 2nd shot, not sheepish): No, it's a race ,Phil!
Phil: So you left them on the side of the road?
Rob/Amber (smiling, nodding)

I actually wasn't too annoyed at Rob for not stopping because I'm sure there's lots of help at the scene already and there wasn't much they could have done. I also agree Lynn/Alex were useless and should have gone when B/G told them to go, but I also think it was a very nice thing to do that they stayed. Eventhough they were useless, sometimes just being around and offering moral support is good enough. I'm a resident, and the things I think my patients have most appreciated is not when I am doing something useful, but when I hang around before/after surgery, just as they're dying, holding their hands, offering quiet support. So don't knock the power of moral support!

Also agree that Lynn/Alex shouldn't have badmouthed Romber so much... they're being very catty to them, which is making me like them less too. And finally, agree that all teams that chose the corn pounding didn't make the right choice - the straws looked so much easier!

BUT I WAS annoyed at Rob for:
- the things they said in response to the carflip. What was the extent of their "there was NO WAY we're stopping"? If he was exaggerating, fine. If not, and he wasn't planning on stopping even if the accident was more major, then pfffffffft to Rob. And the laughing/smiling at the mat with Phil showed no class/compassion. BUT agree - their coldness could have been editing. Maybe they said other nicer things that weren't aired. Maybe the laughs were response to other things discussed.
- chucking a tantrum at Lynn/Alex for not letting them share the bus when that's what Romber did, hiring their own private bus, in episode 1. It's their own private bus, not a public one - they can do what they like! If they choose to spend more money so they can have it all to themselves, it's up to them! Obviously, he can't take what he gives.
- when he said "I'm done being nice". They've NEVER been nice to other Racers! (but i agree - they've been great to locals, and I admire that they spent the time to be nice to their fans instead of rushing off to next location)
- saying what he said about Meredith pushing Gretchen. Yes, it was probably sarcasm, but some comments, sarcastic or otherwise, are better left unsaid! The fact that he can even think up such a comment, sarcasm or no, shows us how awful his character/mind are.

I'm annoyed at Amber for:
- laughing at mat also
- not being able to make up her mind at the FF
- performing abysmally at the market until she had help

As for Brian/Greg... the footrace to the mat was very emotional. All in all, a tough day for them. I'm not surprised it took them a while to register what Phil said to them about cameraman being ok - I won't bash them for this. I've been in emotional situations before, and I know how easy it can be to become one track mind in such situations.

See, I can think up all sorts of horribly evil things like that without even blinking, but most people would think I'm a fairly nice human in real life. Lots of other people here can do it, too. It's all about going for the bash or the humor. Bebo's good at it. Landru and Devious Weasel are masters. Boston Rob is great. He knows how to say things for effect. It works.

I swear some of the rubber-neckers spend more time checking out the cars in the wreck than the insurance adjusters will (passed one chain reaction rear ender with several cars and the id-jit in front of me had to stop and look between each set of two cars on the side to assess the damage).

Colleen, Elisabeth, Rodger, Paschal are some of my favourite ever players on Survivor... so I guess I choose the 2nd. I agree that people like Richard Hatch make the show a lot more interesting, but while I enjoy watching them on TV, doesn't mean I will condone their actions or like them as friends personally. Having said that, my favourite ever season of Survivor was S2, which had less scheming/backstabbing than any other season, imo. And the bits I hated most about S2 were the evil Jerri bets, eg beef jerky Kel. So I guess an honourable game CAN still be entertaining... though not always. As for TAR, my favourite seasons were the earlier ones, where the players concentrated on the race itself more, rather than on each other. I want to see more of the country/culture and less of the inter-team bickering!

Thank you Watermelon for typing at the word for word dialogue. It really is fresh in my memory now and I couldn't remember the exact dialogue when I was posting. I thank you and agree with your analysis which was very thorough!

To Anotherkim who said that this is a race and we (or you) should check our humanity at the door, this is at the core of why there are Romber lovers and Romber haters. I fall in the latter category and am of the opinion that as one team stated " We are Human First. We are racers second."

there are levels of humanity, IMO.

Tell me again how Lynn and Alex are better humans, though. Which of their characteristics are more admirable? Their constant belittling of Rob and Amber for no reason other than pure jealousy from Day One? Or their racist comments about Compton? They stop and get in the way and mock others for not doing the same and that makes them better people?

I don't get it. At all.

speaking of bad editing smells, i posted this to true in another thread-something to consider when editing arguments start heating up.

here's another fact: i was invited to Los Angeles to observe the editing of several TAR5 sequences, not only the one's shot in my country but in others as well during the latter half of the season. I found out that so much footage couldn't be used because production personnel accidentally walked into the frame or entered the shot.

Chase cars aren't miles away from the racers. they are pretty much tailing them at opposite side of the agreed camera angle so they won't be seen. but hey i saw signals getting crossed and when you thought it was just one car racing through a deserted area, whoops we saw 2 vans, a truck and the helicopter (all TAR personnel and vehicles) entering the camera frame all at the same time! too bad cuz it was a great shot of the vehicle flying over a small ridge and landing almost flipping over the front. obviously they couldn't use that in the edit.

editing is a wonderful tool in story telling and a mighty weapon in covering up mistakes!

I agree with you about Lynn and Alex. I did not like things they did during the last hour of last week's episode either. The fact that they continue to make beating out Romber their primary mission is probably what will lead to their demise as a team. At the same time, I don't know thier true goal in stopping at the accident. Perhaps it was because they wanted media attention. Perhaps it was because they were really concerned. That I don't know and none of us truly know because we are not them. All I do know is that they stopped. What it may say to one individual watching TAR the other individual may totally disagree on. But none of us, unless one of them is secretly on this board, is in their head to know their true goal behind stopping.

Wow, Watermelon, that was very impressive. Thanks for typing all that up. I agree with you that Rob's "I'm not stopping for anything" really makes him sound bad. Not to mention 'let's not get crazy.' Exactly what is so crazy about slowing down for 5 seconds? He did not say it didn't look like he was needed, he did in fact say he wasn't stopping for anything, implying that the brothers could have been lying dead on the road and Rob would have blown right by their bodies. I know the wrath of the Rob fans will descend on my head for saying that, but keep in mind I said that's the impression that his comment gives off and if he wouldn't do such a thing, he should learn to phrase his comments more carefully

"Rob: Yeah, we saw the brothers, and Alex and Lynn."

So maybe there's even an outside chance that Romber thought that it was L/A that flipped and the brothers who stopped.

I'm so ticked at Meredith for showing Alex how to use the compass.

I think I finally get it.

See, stuff like this-

"I'm not stopping for anything"

and..

'let's not get crazy.'

..and I'll even add in the comment about Merideth pushing Gretchen.

I see nothing but humor in these comments. To me it's obvious. I don't take these kindof comments seriously, I think they're funny. Lynn and Alex attept to be humorous as well, like with their STD and Compton comments. Difference is, they're not funny.

implying that the brothers could have been lying dead on the road and Rob would have blown right by their bodies.

Wow, that's quite a jump. Even if I took everything Rob says seriously, I wouldn't go that far.

If you don't see any humor in these sarcastic remarks, I can understand why you'd dislike Rob.

Well, YMMV. Humor is a very subjective thing. Somebody over at Television Without Pity was jumping on TAR6's Aaron for making the 'I'm good at handling asses' comment and how Aaron has no respect for Hayden and their marriage is doomed and blah, blah, while I thought it was funny. Likewise, I know lots of people were offended by TAR5's Brandon's constant religious references while I thought it was just his way of coping. Like I said above, I seriously doubt that Rob would have blown right by a fiery vehicle or a pair of dead bodies, but saying 'I'm not stopping for anything' just gives the impression that no matter what the scene was, he wasn't stopping. He should learn to say phrase things better if he doesn't want to imply that. If would stop for something, don't say you're not stopping for anything

One of the rare fans who is indifferent to Rob said that Rob is probably still trying to play the 'Boston Rob' persona, but killer fatigue is catching up with him and it's hard to deliver tongue in cheek lines with the usual flair when you feel like you're about to keel over. So he's forgetting to wink at the camera or give his little smiles when he says things he doesn't mean. I'm willing to give Rob the benefit of the doubt and say that's the case here

That said, I still think he's an ##### and I think that if he is in no shape to deliver his usual lines he should just drop the schtick and race

No probs... it's a pleasure for me to try and present info in a neutral way for once, coz usually I'm hating on Romber...

To tell the truth though, I don't hate him as much as I did in S4... I still don't like him though... I guess I'm not a Romber-hater anymore, more a Romber-disliker. Anyway, no strong feelings either way (love or hate) so easier for me to be neutral

All of the definite opinions that have been expressed on this subject brought this question to mind.

Given the choice, would you do EXACTLY what Lynn and Alex did or would you do EXACTLY what Rob and Amber did?

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a multiple choice question. It is an either/or question.

This is a difficult question, since we don't know EXACTLY what happened.

But given what we were shown on the broadcast, I would have done what Rob and Amber did. I would NEVER do what Lynn and Alex did. Ever. Ever. Ever.


I'd like to thank all those who would stop and wait for me to resume the race.
Now, can you send me $5?

Rob and Amber.

Like TJ said, we don't know exactly what happened on the show or whether the editing hid something else or whatever, but from what we were given on TV, there was no need for Romber to stop because TAR has a medical crew ready to jump in as soon as somebody gets hurt or is involved in an accident, plus they've got a radio/walkie-talkie network to keep in touch with all the cameramen. Who's to say that Romber didn't already know the severity of the situation through their cameraman and soundman? Regardless, the situation seemed to be under control with a bunch of people milling around and no apparent 'severe' injury ... so no need for Romber to stop.

I'd just have given a thumbs up at the brothers and zipped right on by, then as soon as I met up with them at the pit stop, I'd have gone up to them and asked if they were okay.

That's a hard question coz I'd be an in-betweener - roll down the window and ask if everything's ok, then what I do depends on the response.

But if you want me to choose between 2 extremes, then I think I'd have to go with Lynn and Alex, because the Hippocratic Oath AND God's law of "do to others as you would have them do unto you" oblige me to stop and see if there's anything I can do to help.

In real life, I don't always stop though. If the paramedics are already there, I generally let them do what they have to do and only help if they ask me to/look like they need it. Otherwise, I just become a hindrance when all they want to do is go straight to the hospital!

Then you just contradicted yourself. I won't go as far as to say "hypocritical", but would you stop or not? Or, like the Happy Boys, would you only stop cuz you'd be on camera doing it?

BTW, ordinary folks like us are not bound by the Hippocratic Oath.

Huh? Is English your 1st language? Coz you don't seem to understand what I said in that last post or in my previous posts? (and incidentally, in case you think I'm bashing you about your language, I'm not, because English is actually NOT my 1st language either, but I feel I have a pretty good command of it. It's possible to have a good command of English even if it's your 2nd or, in my case, 3rd language)

"Then you just contradicted yourself"

No, I didn't. I said that it was a hard question because in real life, I wouldn't do either - i would stop temporarily, assess the situation, and stay if I'm needed or go if I'm gonna get in the way. If the paramedics have things under control and just wanna go ahead to the hospital, there's no use in my staying - I would just be getting in the way of them doing their jobs. However, in the setting of this question where we can only choose L/A or Romber's actions, I believe if you go and re-read what I wrote, I clearly stated that "I'd have to go with Lynn and Alex".

"I won't go as far as to say "hypocritical", but would you stop or not?"

I already answered that in my last post.

"Or, like the Happy Boys, would you only stop cuz you'd be on camera doing it?"

That statement is so wrong in a couple of ways:

1. You don't know me - I take offence that you're trying to judge me when you don't even know me. When I stop in real life, there are no cameras around!
2. I ALREADY stated that whether or not I'd stop for long depends on how serious the situation is... I did not mention anything about cameras

"BTW, ordinary folks like us are not bound by the Hippocratic Oath."

I know that! That's why, if you scroll up and read my previous post, I tried to present info in a neutral way and I also said that I did not fault Romber for not stopping - only for their later behaviour. In fact, in the post above, I never assumed either that the rest of you are bound by the laws/oaths that I am bound by.

So next time, before you post and try to criticise me, please read and UNDERSTAND everything that I've posted first. Thank you.

Not to put to fine a point on it, but "do to others as you would have them do unto you", isn't GOD's law today.

I have no problem at all with your Hippocratic Oath obligations, but if you're gonna play the "GOD's law" card, I'd update the deck.

I asked the question that way because that was how TAR presented it.

Phil didn't make an issue out of how they responded to the accident, with any of the other teams.

With so many people ripping Rob and Amber and praising Lynn and Alex, I was just curious whose example you would follow.

For the record, I'd do exactly what Rob and Amber did.

In real life, if I was in a hurry to get somewhere very important and came apon an accident where people had already stopped to help, I wouldn't bother to stop and check if everything was okay.

If I was a doctor or a paramedic my answer would probably be different, but I don't believe that applies to our two teams in this case.

Rob and Amber, no question. If there's already help there, anyone else (like Lynn and Alex) is just in the way.

Now, at the pit stop, I'd go check how they are doing, but it's been established that R&A pretty much stayed to themselves, with good reason.

It's not about right or wrong it's about doing the proper thing. Being human and caring for others. Did either of them know what the situation was, no. Did they know the cameraman was still alive, no. What if they needed a ride because both cars were out of commission and the cameraman needed medical attention? Did they know that wasn't the case? We are still in the middle of this race and 5 minutes would not have cost them the race. At this point in the race they both just showed the kind of people they are, mean. Not only that, of all the teams in the race they need the money less then any of the others. Do unto others as you would...
May people be more HUMAN to you if God forbid, you ever needed it. This was the straw that broke it for me, no more will I watch this show. I will not be part of this type of glorifying of that type of person. Give me a Rupert over a Rob and Jonathan any day of the week. It's sad time we live in when we have to have attitudes like this to make popular TV.

And yet the sound and camera people in their car didn't command they stop so they could get out. They kept rolling tape.

Nobody knows the exact sequence, nor everything that R/A said. It's called EDITING, they have at least 12 hours of tape for each team per day. And have to par it down to a 1 hour, showing every team, deciding what makes good RTV and what doesn't.

I'm not calling anyone NON-HUMAN based on a reality show.

Just another rant.

May I remind you that you do NOT see the actual sequence of events; you only see what the TAR producers want you to see. You do not see Rob slow down, because that is edited out... who doesn't slow down to look at an accident, after all? If the accident were truly serious, do you honestly believe that the crew riding with Romber would just let them speed off? How many other teams stopped? Were they 'grilled' by Phil for not stopping?

I doubt Rob is actually unkind. Devious in his gameplay, yes, but not mean or inhuman.
