You can tell that none of us have much--any?--investment in this season's teams, Lynn Spillman.

Christie & Jodi --
Kisha & Jen +

You're The First Team to Arrive...
09 - Christie & Jodi
09 - Kisha & Jen

...However
03. Amanda & Kris
04. Brad & Victoria
05. Mel & Mike
06. Jaime & Cara
07. Linda & Steve
08. Tammy & Victor
09. Margie & Luke
10. Mark & Michael
11. Preston & Jennifer
12. Lynn Spillman - you've been given a 24 hour penalty for casting a pair of Mandarin-speaking Chinese siblings after knowing that the final three legs would take place in China. Also, you're banned from the taco stand.

I'm surprised by how little I care.

A lot of it, I think, is the editing. Would we still love the clowns as much as we generally do now if we had to hear the "do-do, do-do-do-do, do-do-DO-do" circus music every time they were on screen? I think not. Anyway...

Guess I'll give the edge to the FA's. But I wouldn't mind either of these teams winning.

Back to the state of ambivalence.

And ETA: So true about the clown music! After this season's first episode, I ranted at my mother in a much-too-long email about the trend in the soundtrack. This is one area where old-school TAR was much better--because the editors/producers were emphasizing the experience (the places, the challenges, the growth in the people/relationships within teams) and not the characters (and rivalries between teams), the music was all about the Horns of Perseverance, et al. Not Sweet Georgia Brown and watered-down Copland. Season 14 may not have been so heavy-handed on the music front (I can't recall), but the music is just following the casting/editing.

It wasn't, mainly because none of the Teams With Special Jobs teams had something you could attribute a piece of music to, the way you can with cowboys and the Globetrotters.

Anyway, next poster picks it:

I was holding out hope that someone would vote both teams out, simultaneously. Hee.

Oh, it's great fun when that happens. Maybe we might end up with it in the TAR15 game.
