Oh wow, judging from the vert first photo this team reminds me of some sort of Mexican Soap Opera...

For some reason I really like Taryn... I probably based it off the first photo... but its just something about her...

I dont think this team will make it very far... I think they may be one of the first out... I dont know why, I just have a feeling...

Also that childhood friend looks sort of out of place with the team...

Sorry to double post, but none of you are damn well posting :lol


Ok, well when I first read their bio, it was forgettable, and naturally I forgot all about them, so come the show, these people again were just not very interesting... BUT I went through the entire show thinking that the bottom person names Taryn, was a MAN!!! Because on the TV she looked like a guy with really long hair and weird features!! OH MY GOD! I CANT BELIVE HES A GIRL!! :rofl This is hialrious, I am so shocked! I came into this thread about to make a comment how the long haired guy didnt say a word last night, and then saw that its a girl!

Anyways, back to my original point, Taryn, the "girl", didnt say anything last show! I dont think I hear her say one thing! :lol

I really have no care in the world that this team was eliminated! lol
