Does any of that ring a bell for you?
That rings a slight bell. I'd still have to go to CBS.com to pick them out of a lineup.

IIRC, the injury happened at the end of the second leg. The first leg focused mostly on the challenge where the teams had to search among hundreds of sandcastles on a beach, and where three teams ultimately agreed to all forfeit the challenge and race to the finish, knowing that the first two would have a time penalty and the third would be eliminated. So there wasn't much time in that episode for them to focuse on Dave and Connor.

The second leg spent a lot of time focusing on the two black doctors who were brothers who couldn't swim, and then I remember two women, I think Asian, who got lost while riding their jet ski to a challenge. Again, not much time to focus on Dave and Connor.

I believe it was the son who was the cancer survivor, but my memory isn't what it used to be.

Both are, according to their original bio:

That's how I remember it, too. Both survived cancer and it's why they wanted to run the race together.

I seem to remember also that they were nice guys and, despite having at least one opportunity to be mean, they passed in favor of being decent.

I'd like to see them do well.

I'm starting to remember more about Dave and Connor.

Their All-Stars bio doesn't mention them being cancer survivors at all.

Yes, both of them are as they reminded the viewers about 20 times per episode usually tears were involved.

I was pretty disappointed in Team Kentucky this evening. I think they forgot about the spirit of Bopper and just got to bickering too much

This is last week's thread. Might want to edit/spoilerize that. Although I knew as much from the ads for this week.

Who needs $1 million (and winning for your friend) when you have your $20 backpack and a change of clothes? I feel terrible for Mallory, she did everything she could to slap him back into reality.

One of the most mentally challenged performances ever by a contestant.

To be fair to those that posted spoilers in this thread, it was started as a season thread. I not know when it changed but it hasn't been long.

Wrong. I started the thread and put the original air date of the season premiere in the thread title. The title has not changed. I don't like season-long threads for shows like this. Each episode has specific things to discuss, and historically we get plenty of discussion on each episode to warrant separate episode threads.

I wonder how many of us saw this week's Survivor thread title and thought 'nope'.

Yeah. I was the one who started a season thread and everyone preferred to have one for each episode. Reading the thread title would have told you that anyway!

Was there or was there not a season thread for TAR? I am sorry, I am probably wrong and am confusing the Survivor thread then. I know at least one of them had a season thread that was lasting much longer than I thought it would.

Don't take that Survivor thread title to heart. There will be individual threads for each Survivor episode also.
