Fashion Report — Episodes 1 & 2
Right from the start, we have a collection of questionable fashion choices. Lake's glasses have the unfortunate effect of looking like a bowtie/tux. Although the implied impression (that he thinks he's better than the rest of the crowd) is fitting for the character we've seen thus far.
And matching safety glasses!
littlebean, seems to feel the same way). Basically, it goes like this: backpack size is inversely proportional to time spent on the Race (or, the more stuff the Racers are carrying, the sooner they'll be Philiminated). I figure that knowing what to pack (and not to pack) is a decent indicator of traveling experience and mental preparation. Scott and John, for example, had fairly large packs and each was also carrying a tote bag packed full of extra stuff. Lisa and Joni not only had the overflowing packs, but were also carrying sleeping bags as if this was a repeat of TAR: Family Edition, so it's no surprise they were next out. If the pattern holds, the Danis and their big backpacks full of matching outfits won't be around for long. We'll see what happens in the next episode - check back then for more fashion hits and misses.
