About Us

This all came about because of one website having financial trouble and one fantastic TV show. In 2003, Television Without Pity was having difficulty balancing the books and the site's future was in question. The forum dwellers of the show The Amazing Race wanted to show support for TWoP, which was offering the opportunity to own the banner advertisements on the forums for $100 a day. We got together and raised enough for 10 banner ads.

The banners needed to link to something and so we had to create a site – TARflies. At this point, we think that CBS owes us a pretty penny for all the free advertising. (Not that The Amazing Race doesn't deserve it. It does.) Anyway, after the banner ad campaign ended, we decided to keep TARflies going, with interviews, articles, screen caps, forums, games, puzzles, and whatever else we feel like sticking here. In other words, TARflies has taken off and developed an identity of its own.

The TARflies would like to give a huge thank you to everyone involved with The Amazing Race who has given us their time.
