    I just watched the video clip. Wow. "That's all I have to say about that." Three minutes and thirty seconds worth is all. :rolleyes: What an ******.

    Like survivor TAR is also a social game. Brandy was unbelievably nasty and condescending to Caite and all the other teams. As a result, like a pebble in your shoe, they removed it. Being smart is one thing, acting smart is another. Brandy could, just as easily, ignored Caite or been nice to here and this would be a non issue. But, for the same reason as Joe earlier, they were so annoying that getting rid of them instead of a stronger team was more desirable.

    But if the challenges were actually challenges, that lead from the plane should not have carried over the whole leg.

    That's the issue I've had with TAR the past few seasons. The challenges have been a cakewalk, for the most part. This season was a little better but this last leg was not a challenge for any of them. Putting people up in the order of elimination was too straight forward. It needed something more... like match the country / place / object as well.

    There may have been many more (and perhaps worse) off camera. They didn't film every moment.

    It'd be nice if they had to do mini-versions of some of the previous challenges kind of like they do with Survivor. Not going to hold my breath on that one though.

    There was more than just that one comment made. Brandy mentioned on, I think, at least two occasions about how Caite's stupidity was available for viewing on YouTube. There were also a couple jabs at both Caite and her boyfriend for being 'stupid beautiful people' or something like that and several jabs about them just being simply 'stupid' or 'not intelligent'.

    far be it from me to defend Brandy (cause I truly hate her) but it should be pointed out that all those statements are true ;)

    Apparently they got tired of getting bashed on Facebook 'cause the page has been removed.

    (OK, I don't know that that's the reason it was removed... I'm just assUming. :p )

    That's not an FAA rule, though -- it's merely airline policy. (And it's really always been the case, even pre-9/11. Don't want the coach folks stinking up the first-class lavatory. :D )

    Look, I chuckled when the YouTube stuff was brought up in episode 1. That's episode 1, folks. Not the finale, at the finish line, when Brandy really should have kept it to herself. GET OVER IT!

    It reminds me of the Rob-n-Ambuh dynamic. Especially in their first season, half the other teams were obsessed with them, complaining about their Reality TV fame, etc. If Carol and Brandy had concentrated on the race, and not taken apparently every spare moment to crack on Caite, maybe they'd have been in the final three. (Oh, and Caite had her own obsession with Carol and Brandy, but they basically started it.)

    I should separate Carol and Brandy here, as Carol didn't appear at all thrilled with Brandy's antics, particularly in the finale, and if reports posted here are to be believed, they separated.

    Which season did they have the U-turn at the place where people were working on cars, and there was much discussion about it?

    I don't like the U-turn, and I don't like its use as a personal vendetta vs. a strategic move, but it's part of the competition. Deal with it, indeed.

    The interview on People.com says they were on US Airways.

    Sure the copes talking them into u-turning someone other than themselves...makes perfect sense. As the cops said (I don't remember the exact words) but they said they got their little guard dogs (the models) to u-turn another team. Caite only wanted to u-turn the lesbians, and the cops urged her on...before she came to her senses and maybe u-turned the cops.

    And if you remember, the brothers were against u-turning the lesbians, they thought the smart move was to u-turn a strong team. They told that to Caite and to the cameras.

    Oh, there were plenty of comments made only to the cameras, but I'm talking about comments that Caite knew about. If we want to talk about comments made only to the cameras, Caite made plenty of similar comments herself.

    According to a pilot friend, they did that based on an interpretation of some FAA reg. My guess is that they interpreted that rule in their favor, of course.

    The counter they checked in at said united and the seats were the same as United Business. US and UA are mostly all code share now. I haven't flown in US transpac so I don't know what their seats look like but there isn't any thing like that on their web site.

    It seems that while other teams get chastised for their negativity, Caite mostly gets a pass on here. Why is that?

    I don't know, I hated them. They were ugly, ugly people, especially to each other. I wanted them out from early on, but I felt the same way about the brothers half the time. I agree that they didn't cheat, but thought the whole cutting in line was cheap and meaningless, though at the time they thought it might make a difference. The cowboys probably just couldn't think of a way tget him out of line that wasn't physical. His attempts at justifiing his place in line were pathetic though. Just be a man and say "I cut, so what?"
