Now, next season will involve active rooting AGAINST Brenchel.

I was okay with Ernie and Cindy winning - they certainly seemed to race well, even if Cindy was by times pretty annoying. I was completely exhausted too with the endless football analogies. Apparently however, there is nothing about football that prepares you for landing a large aircraft.

I enjoyed most of this season, too ~ I really did. But was *extremely* disappointed when it became obvious that Amani & Marcus weren't going to win, or even have half a chance.
*I* didn't post, because I usually like to see what everyone else has to say first, unless there's something that really struck a chord with me.
Doesn't *anyone* have any thoughts?

I liked Cindy. I mean maybe, on occasions, she was mildly annoying. But there have been a rash of shrieking harpies on this show, and, in my opinion, her behavior didn't come anywhere near any of those. I also took notice of what she said after winning. She mentioned something about having to live up to very high expectations from her parents. If I'm not mistaken, in their eyes, she was supposed to be "perfect." If I read into the situation, her parents are probably very traditional, and I imagine they weren't crazy about the fact that she will be marrying Ernie. She also had some really sweet moments.
Ernie? Dull. I'll let those with better gaydars than mine decide on that.
Marcus and Amani were terrific, football cliches aside. All you have to know about her is how she kept her cool when Marcus couldn't land that damned plane, and how supportive she was after.
Dating couple were okay. They had their spats, but I've seen a hell of a lot worse. I guess my biggest problem with them is that they were too serious. I am sure, overall, they loved the experience. However, they sure didn't show it. I am guessing that I will end up liking them a hell of a lot more than a particular couple on the next TAR, who shall remain nameless.

APCWSRN may become the new HWSNBN. Nice, ff.
I was okay with Sprinkles and her gay fiance' winning. They raced well enough, I guess. I forget who won second place. Would have loved to see the Pollards win. I don't care how many football references he made~ those two are an awesome couple. Their kids are lucky to have them as parents.
