TAR_Survivor Didn't really like this season (page: 1 2 3) 40 Jan 3 2012, 1:39 PM EST by Hericles

I know heaps of people liked this season and loved who won but seriously this was one of my least favourite seasons mainly because Nick and Starr won.

There were moments that were funny and everything but I didn't really like any of the teams I was going for Kelly and Chrsity but I knew they would lose because they were stupid.

What a stupid name Starr (I was mainly annoyed that it was spelt with 2 R's where her parents trying to be fancy)

My FInal Thoughts on the race were : VERY POSITIVE!!

This Season was great! I loved the teams: Marisa and Brooke, Kelly and Christy & Nick and Starr
I thought it was filled with lots of actions and excitement
The task were pretty good..except maybe the last one where they had to find the green dinosaur..like.lol
I was pretty happy with the race destinations this season..Russia, Kazahakstan, India, New Zealand
I was also very happy of the outcome: Nick and Starr winning!
The only things that made me sad was: Toni and Dallas not making the Final 3, Marisa and Brooke & Kelly and CHristy not making it furhter in the race, Andrew and Dan making the Final 3 (sorry to ppl who liked em)

But overall: I thought this season was great and congratulations to CBS (I think thats the right company,right?) and all the racers! And Congrats on Nick and Starr on winning the $1 million and Ken & Tina (hopefully) on remending your relationship!
