Excellent players and unusually difficult challenges. I believe it's the first time for two individuals (from different teams) compete against each other.

 

Still too many teams to pick a favorite, or get to know people.

 

 

Cody and Jessica, cause he's an alpha male and HOT !

In the recent episode the teams are in Morocco. I thought it interesting that the sign outside the museum was in Arabic, French and Tifinagh (Berber).

Trevor Wadleigh and Chris Marchant (#TeamWellStrung), for obvious reasons...

According to the paper TV GUIDE in the next episode the teams will be in Prague which is the gay porn capital of Europe!

As expected, their CBS bio does not mention the word "gay," or "dating." Shame!

Well-strung is 4 young talented men who play mend pop/classical tunes together.

I've seen the group perform several times here in NYC and also several times up in Provincetown.

I've met them at their "meet and greets" and they are all friendly and personable.

Trivia fact...all 4 guys live together.

The Amazing Race has featured many out gay teams/team members over the years. Off the top of my head, I remember two gay male couples who have won, and their relationships were actually highlighted. The show is very gay friendly, and has no problem referring to a couple as dating or married. I'm not sure why this hasn't come up yet regarding the Well-Strung guys. Btw, there's usually a nice sampling of male eye candy, especially when they make it to the warm weather countries. The show usually works in some challenge that involves getting into a speedo. I hope the Well-Strung guys make it at least that far, lol.

I remember one season a male couple were referred to as husbands.

Dating. Musicians from New York

 

Too early to know much about them beside music.

They do episode recaps on their Youtube account. From what I can remember, they're not dating. The guy on the left is dating someone else, while the guy on the right is single.

Exactly, @jaytin0. Having caught Trevor & Chris' commentaries on TAR 30 myself (comments on the legs which have already been televised only) on WellStrung's Youtube channel, they have made it clear that one of them is single and the other has a boyfriend he is dating, and that they are not a couple.

 

Chris and Trevor are certainly one of the hottest male teams to ever run The Amazing Race IMO!

 

Reichen Lehmkuhl and Chip Arndt were the winners of TAR season 4. They were married to each other and always referred to on the race as husbands. Unfortunately, they split soon after that season and last I read Chip was happily remarried to a man who was not as self-centered as Reichen, who has tried again and again to start an acting career. Reichen was also in the cast of the reality show A-list New York a few years ago.

The other gay couple who won the race on TAR 21 were Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, a team of Goat Farmers. Prior to their race appearance, they had a reality show on the Discovery channel, "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" for two seasons, (cancelled in 2011) about their decision to start a goat farm in Sharon Springs, NY, with Josh commuting during the week to his business job in NYC while Brent (an MD) ran the farm.

Prague also means Kafka and castles and beer.

Kafka was born in the Jewish Quarter of the city.

 

He figured prominently in a very difficult challenge. The musicians were eliminated. Sad to see them leave.

I was sorry to see the gay team go also. I was rooting for them. They were done in with a U-Turn by the Big Brother couple; I hope they lose!

 

I was unaware the Czechs were such great beer drinkers. Interesting about bathing in beer!

...

Me too a little. But it is a standard part of the show.

Team cody was practically neck and neck with team Well-Strung who were right behind them and were the only team left, so they really had no choice but to use the U-Turn on them. If I were on TAR, in the same position as Team Cody, I'd have to do the same thing to team Well-Strung. I am so sorry when gorgeous eye candy like Trevor and Chris get eliminated, but if you are trying to survive/hopefully win the race, you have no choice when it's down to you or them. At least this group of teams isn't mean, though it might have been more even or more exciting for say, team Ocean Rescue - Lucas & Brittany (not sure if Jessica left Brittany's gnome back on purpose!) to U-Turn team Cody earlier, before they U-Turned Trevor and Chris!

Another good season. Perhaps it was counter-Olympics scheduling, or some other reasons....I didnt care for the two-hour episodes, particularly as it was obvious they weren't originally edited that way.

 

Still, unlike other seasons, there was no one I would have been disappointed to see win.

 

One snarky comment... I was getting really tired of seeing Team Yale's Evan's septum-ring, always askew.

I wonder what conclusions will be drawn by 22nd Century anthropologists and social scientists who study early 21st Century social media.

That final puzzle really made winning this season of TAR a breathtaking finish. Until the winner realized their mistake, (two of the same symbols!) it really was anybody's game. Those are the sort of final puzzles that make the very end-game exciting in Amazing Race, though! I would have been happy with any of the final four teams winning but I felt this particular win was very satisfying! This really was one of the most competitive groups of teams in TAR history! I do wish that they had played the episodes out normally also, not doubling them up because of Celebrity Big Brother!
