Let's go black team!!!

Votes due in 2 1/2 hours. Still waiting on 2 votes.

Hello everyone! Great job at your third pit stop and welcome to the first vote off on this season of...

First of all, Black team since you are the winners of this pit stop you have been granted immunity from this vote off. Congrats!

Black Team

Blue Team on the otherhand suffered a 5 minute penalty and lost the Pit Stop. They were forced with choosing one member from their own team to send home in this weeks vote off.

Since this is The Real Road I'll refresh your minds with the intro.

"This is the true story of 12 strangers picked to live in an RV, travel around the country, and have their lives taped. Find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real!"

So why did we brings this up? Well in spirit of the games title we will be keeping things REAL. You may have sent your votes privately to us three hosts, but the privacy of your votes will be made public at each vote off ceremony. Let's not be fake and keep it REAL this season why don't we?

Unfortunately Francisco this ends your time here on The Real Road: European Escapade. This outcome is defintetly unexpected in my opinion however I'm not playing the game so I dont know what's going on in the shadows of your team's alliances. I dont agree with the choice seeing as you killed it every chance you had but unfortunately there's nothing I can do and this ends your time here. You were truly a pleasure to have in this game + a beast and I hope to see you in the future!

You also have the choice of sharing your points with your now former teammates or voiding your points all together meaning no one gets them. Francisco, what is your decision? No response within 24 hours will result in a void.

^No reactions? I was shocked. 

Anyways, I'll post the Pit Stop tomorrow. It is LITERALLY the easiest thing you've ever done or will ever do. It takes 2 minutes and just requires you to send me something(not a screenshot or anything)

Thanks for the kind words HonestTea, you were a great host and you tried to make this game as brain based and rational as possible, and sadly not the same thing can be said about the blue team.

Can't say that I don't saw this coming, this was honestly a dumb and desperate move (Voting off the person who had the best overall time on the latest pit stop and who saved your ass many times on the previous pit stop is not that bright of you), but a very predictable one. As I said on my interviews, I played a game true to myself, without any backdoor alliances, without talking shit about anyone and staying real to my teammates, and that's why I feel happy tonight. Some may say that I was outsmarted politically and you'll be right, but my aim on this game was never to outsnake or to get to the end throwing people under the bus, as some people on the blue team may be keen on doing. I've already won one of these games, and don't think it's a reason strong enough to gain enemies on this site.

Regarding my points, I've asked the hosts before the votes were revealed if I can give them to the opposite team, as my own team is not worthy of them, but they say that the rules prohibit that. I've also asked if I can give them to the only person on my own team that warned me, to give a head start against these "knieving bitches" (As you called them hahahaha), but the hosts also said that the points would be equally distributed, so my decision is to void the points so no one would get them (Salty, I know Smile ). I can only sit here and wait for the blue team to lose another pit stop and see them turn against each other, and that seems so entertaining right now.

Thanks again for everyone involved on making a great game. Loved the format, loved the hosts, loved to be a part of it. Back to my lurking days, anyone who wants to chat, I'm a PM away :)!

Everyone welcome to our 4th location this season here in Hungary!

Sick ass cabin!

Here

Is there no Driver's Seat or did I miss something?

Ok I'm pissed right now looks like I'm doing it. Who is here?

Here.. 

Damnnnn ayyy off to the hottub

Here...again...

Hello everyone and welcome to the 4th Driver’s Seat Ceremony on this season of…

Today we will be focusing on The United States President Donald Trump. The United States is divided still after many thought the wounds would heal after the most unconventional election between quote “the two most unlikeable presidential candidates”. This conversation could definitely lead to some tempers being flared but with a growing divide in the US and the world please try to keep this conversation as a healthy discussion to better the world we live in.

I will serve as your moderator and if I feel that answers to questions are becoming too repetitive, off topic, or behavior is becoming uncalled for we will move on to the next question. If your behavior is becoming rude, cruel, or harmful you’ll be asked to leave today’s event. So please, lets get a quality discussion flowing but do it in a non-hurtful or harmful way.

Before we get started I’ll present some facts from both sides of the issue for everyone to review and decipher in their own terms.

Fact 1)Although Donald Trump is president, he didn’t win the popular vote losing by roughly 3 million votes. He won presidency though because he received 304 electoral college votes when only 270 was needed to win

Fact 2)On January 6th, 2017, The US government intelligence investigation agencies concluded that the Russian government interfered in the election. A similar case just happened in France with a hack close to the election in an attempt to influence the results(although Russia hasn’t been concluded the blame yet)

Fact 3)Donald Trump appealed to many people in the midwest by promising jobs and economic growth. As a result, Donald Trump won states such as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvanian states that haven’t been won by a republican in over 2 decades.

[ font=comic sans ms]Fact 4)The US unemployment rate is 4.4%, the lowest it has been in over a decade. Just 7 years ago in 2010, the unemployment rate was around 10%[/font]

Fact 5)Donald Trump has had a controversial few months as president. He has picked many cabinet members like Betsey Devos that have received media scrutiny for not having good experience. Also his many executive orders like immigration bans have received backlash. Despite the controversies, he was able to successfully nominate a supreme court justice, something Obama wasn’t able to do because of the senate in his last year.

Got mixed feelings on trump. I live in ohio and it was a very influential state.

From Ohio as well - no mixed feelings, only pure embaressment.

Don't like Trump.. simple as that.. beyond shocked he was elected. I guess I was naive.

no way haha. But the thing was was I went to one of his rallies, and I can understand how he got votes. A lot of ohio is unemployed and he emphasized small businesses and improving the economy. My dad has his own business and I know it really resonated with him

Now don't get me wrong, I disapprove of what he said about women, and it was very offensive as a woman myself. But I can see where he got a lot of the Midwest and rural areas to vote for him 

I have mixed feelings as well. I do think that a big part of why Trump and Republicans in general were able to sway a lot of people is that, in general, liberals are becoming more and more "my way or the highway". The Social Justice Warrior, Feminism, etc. that a lot of liberals present is very brash, harsh, and their need for everyone to be completely accepting and politically correct over the last decade or so has turned away A LOT of people I know.

(I'm not saying all liberals are this way obviously, just how not all conservatives are confederate flag-wearing hicks in giant pickups)

I've tried my damn best to see what the Republicans in power have to offer, and every single time, I'm met with dissapointment and utter disgust.

Well and the thing is the media has really shown its true colors and it's amazing how if you look at polls now only 10% of people trust the media. Toni lahren brought this up. And while I think she had an agenda, she made good points

I think Trump fooled middle America and those in the middle class... it's not like he came from nothing and worked his way up. People out there who are actually struggling think he's actually gonna help them meanwhile he's laughing from the golf course and his manhatten penthouse 

Well and the thing is the media has really shown its true colors and it's amazing how if you look at polls now only 10% of people trust the media. Toni lahren brought this up. And while I think she had an agenda, she made good points

This was a huge deal in this election as well I think. The media presented it as though Hilary had the victory easily.. I think no one even thought it was remotely close, let alone Trump would win.

for discussion sake, why have you been disappointed and utter disgusted. I'm honestly curious

agreed. I was on CNN the day of election and they said Hillary was projected 79% to 21% winning.

I lean Democratic - voted Bernie in the primary, fell in line with HIllary in the general - and I have to agree with the bolded. I'm not in love with what Bernie has to offer - not even as a starting conversation point on Capitol Hill, but there are so many people that swallow so easily, and if you're not for him, you're a shill, and shills are awful, and all liberals are too pansy...it so fucking ad-verbatim nowadays.

I'm still unclear on the media's agenda, but I think that they definitely kicked Trump voters to go vote, while Hilary voters might have been more complacent with how the projections were looking.

We don't even need a regulator for this lol

i ageee with this. It honestly felt like the media was wishing it into action, so if you scue polls it'll make people think oh well everyone is voting for Hillary so will I.  Same thing happened in the Democratic Party vote. Hillary had the media on her side.
