* GenreSavvy: In leg 5 they knew they were in last place and knew there was a chance this was a non-elimination leg. They also knew from last season, that if so, they'd lose everything but the clothes they were wearing. So they put on 3 pairs of clothing and underwear.

Season 8 was initially planned to be an All-Star season, the same numbered season as ''{{Series/Survivor}}''. However, after seeing how [[Characters/SurvivorAllStars Survivor: All-Stars]] ended up becoming bitter and personal, and wanting to avoid something like that happening on what was essentially a family show, the idea was scrapped and a radical idea was put in its place. Season 8 was billed as a ''Family Edition'', where families of four could compete, and it would be the only season where children under the age of 18 could participate.

* BornLucky: One instance of this in the "Work or Play" detour. In "Play", teams had to win three games of Twenty One against a professional card dealer. Most teams lost game after game without a single win, until they gave up and took "Work" instead. The Weavers won their first two games on their first two tries, and won their third not long after.[[note]]The Schroeders also had good luck at the game, but finished last and were eliminated in the same leg. [[/note]]
* BreakTheHaughty[=/=][[BeingEvilSucks Being Hated Sucks]]: At first, they took some pride in the fact they [[ImNotHereToMakeFriends weren't here to make friends]], but by leg 8, the hate they were getting from all sides was getting to them. In leg 10, after being Yielded for the second time, they were actually hoping to be eliminated. Phil noted they were the least enthusiastic last team to find out they weren't being eliminated in the show so far. He gave them a RousingSpeech that restored their spirits.

* PetTheDog: In leg 7, when they found out it was the Bransens who were in last place, they told the Bransens to do [[ComedicUnderwearExposure what they were doing.]]

* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Early on they talked about not believing in any Alliances, in the same leg they would start getting hated.



* {{Jerkass}}: Yeah their complaints about all the other teams ganging up on them had some justification, but it didn't help that they were constantly and unbearably nasty.

* LonersAreFreaks: Ostracized very early on and to the end of the race. They were even called "freaks" on more than one occasion.



* PetTheDog: One small instance of this. After the Godlewskis finished last in the non-elimination leg 5 and lost all their money, they asked the Weavers for five bucks, and they gave it to them.

* KickTheDog: At the Talladega racetrack, they actually laughed at the thought the racetrack could be traumatic for the Weavers. ([[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes which it was]]). That's pretty low even for a team nobody likes.




to:

* TrashTalk: Most of the teams trash talked the Weavers, but none did so much or to such extremes as the Linzs.
