Did you notice when Rob said "thats it! I'm not going to be nice any more". By nice does he mean not stopping for the accident. Did he mean stealing the taxi? Did he mean paying the bus driver not to open the back doors but never put in his share of the money? Did he mean not pitching in to help the older couple (like they are really any threat to him) when other teams gave money and more?

I agree that the Rob and Amber fans don't like the gay couple and the gay couple fans don't seem to like Rob and Amber. I am in the second group. I find the gay couple funny but its because they are so stereo typed. Perhaps their one goal of the race is to beat Rob and Amber and as long as they do that not winning the race wouldn't be so bad. I don't think that thats such a bad goal.

I like the brothers the best! They get along so well and have such a great sence of humor! They don't complain, work hard and do their best even though they have had their share of bad luck.

I found Rob and Amber entertaining at first but I am really getting tired of them and hope they are gone soon. I would love to see them come in last on a non elimination round and loose everything and NO ONE give them anything.

Go Brothers Go!!!!

Oh, I forgot to say, if it was Rob and Amber in that bus do you really think that they would have let the gay couple or anyone else in? I think he would have paid the driver extra NOT to let them in. I was glad to see them in the bus alone.

LOL! I was also wondering what Rob meant when he said that. Perhaps we can add delusional to his list of descriptions besides arrogant and conniving.

I was out of town and just had a chance to look at the tape I made of this week's AR. I never like Rob on Survivor. I had been kind of enjoying them on AR because I think they're a good team, and by that I mean they work well together. But I'm getting sick of them getting special attention and help because people recognize them. I was also disgusted that they couldn't bother to stop and see if anyone was hurt and needed help. Every other team either stopped, or at least slowed down until one of the brothers waved them on. I was glad Phil said something to them when they checked in. I am really tired of Rob's attitude and I hope they get eliminated soon.

I wasn't a huge Rob and Amber fan during Survivor--I was always rooting for Rupert. But I think they are running a VERY smart race. There are a million dollars on the line and they are using their minds to try and beat the others. A race doesn't only have to be physical. You aren't obligated to make friends with everyone else(although, maybe they should have asked if the brothers were okay). In what rule book did it say that they should be morally inclined to help their competitors along by giving them money to stay in the race!!! It's a race and they are competitors. They want to beat Meredith and Gretchen, not help them to stay in the race. Meredith and Gretchen were lucky they weren't eliminated, but that doesn't mean everyone in the race is obligated to give them money. In my opinion, they shouldn't have begged the other players for money. They should have tried to get it from locals and tourists. I would have kicked myself if I had given them money to help them stay in and they ended up beating me. I would have thought that was a pretty stupid thing for me to do(after the fact).

Anyway, I am loving this AR! Much more redeeming after last season's Jon and Victoria!! I don't think anyone can be as evil as he was!

I agree with what you said!

I wish that R&A would have at least slowed down to make sure everyone was ok. However, I don't think it was necessary for them to stop. I'm pretty sure Lynn and Alex did it so they could gloat about how great they were to have stopped. When Phil told them they were 4th, they said "No, actually we're 2nd". No, you're 4th. They spent an awful lot of time patting themselves on the back which is annoying as heck. Lynn and Alex didn't do anything but talk and mill around when they stopped. One of the brothers told them to "Go on" and they didn't.

This is a race - a competition. Where does it say that R&A have to give their money to another competitor? I know *I* wouldn't want to give my money to someone I was racing against. What if I did and then they beat me?

As for Rob's comment about "No more being nice". There's alot we don't see due to editing. Perhaps, he HAS been nice to someone and now he feels they've screwed him over. You never know.
