The Amazing Race, Mar. 23 – Risky Choices

This is what makes The Amazing Race such a joy to watch. There are so many things possible to eliminate you. One tiny slip-up, and you’re done. This week, however, it wasn’t a slip-up so much as chance and risks. Margie and Luke and Brendan and Rachel, after the difficult time they had on the Detour last week, were at the back of the pack. They missed out on getting tickets on the non-stop flight to Sri Lanka. There was a flight with a connection, [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 9 – Mixing It Up

These are the challenges I like to see – not necessarily physically demanding, but difficult to accomplish so that it has an impact on the game. Neither the Roadblock or the Detour was a slam dunk for anyone. It made the hours much more exciting. Also leading to some excitement were the flights to Kuala Lumpur. There were only three. The first flight could carry three teams and the second only two, placing the remaining three teams on the next flight. However, the second flight [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 9 – Raft-Building 101

After the heartbreak of last week’s episode, it was good to see them get back to business again this week. Sure, no one wanted to say goodbye to Joey and Meghan, but their elimination just wasn’t nearly as heartbreaking as Mark and Mallory’s. Yet they still had a big looming mistake hovering over them at elimination. Joey and Meghan started in the back of the pack and never moved from that spot. This was aided somewhat by the flights. There were two flights to carry [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 2 – Heartbreaking

Last night’s episode of The Amazing Race was completely heartbreaking. Mark and Bopper were such emotional favorites in their first season, and to have Bopper be told the night before the Race began that he had a disease that would prevent him from racing, then be told the following day that they had found a new partner for him was a huge emotional roller coaster. This week it didn’t get any easier for Mark and his new partner Mallory. Mark and Mallory made it out [...]

The Amazing Race, Feb. 23 – Illness Sidelines Teammate, but not Team

The Amazing Race is treating us to yet another All Stars season. There’s something about the All Star seasons on this show as well as Survivor. They just seem more exciting. From the looks of things so far, this one isn’t going to disappoint. From the very start, the season is compelling. The night before Phil Keoghan was to shout “Go,” contestant Bopper ended up seeing a doctor, with a worried teammate Mark and Phil looking on. The doctor told Bopper he had pancreatitis. It’s [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 27 – Three Left Feet

Last week’s episode of The Amazing Race ended with the teams still racing. Only Brandon and Adam had reached the Pit Stop. Tim and Marie didn’t have their clue showing the Pit Stop and were lost. Nicole and Travis pulled up and offered to exchange that information for the second Express Pass. Tim and Marie hadn’t made a decision yet on it when the episode ended. Departing from: Norway First Clue: Teams will need to travel by boat and plane to Gdansk, Poland. They will [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 20 – “I’ll Tell You Where You Can Stick Your Express Pass”

We know it has to be time for a non-elimination. We’re several legs into The Amazing Race and haven’t had one yet. It’s with that that we watch the clock tick later and later through the hour without the teams even beginning to hit the elimination mat. And that’s even an hour after the show actually starts, not when it is supposed to start, since it happens ten minutes or so late because of football. Departing from: Lisbon, Portugal First Clue: Teams will need to [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 13 – Racing with Ricky Bobby

Ricky Bobby, despite being a race car driver, is one of the last names I’d expect to come up on The Amazing Race. Nevertheless, the “great Ricky Bobby” is quoted by the team arriving in last place tonight. Departing from: Santiago, Chile First Clue: Teams will need to travel to Lisbon, Portugal, travel to Martim Moniz Square, then ride a tram to the top of the hill to get their next clue. Teams: Chester and Ephraim: Former NFL teammates from Houston. Time of departure: 6:27 [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 6 – “Survivors and Thrivers”

There’s nothing better than great editing that shows contestants being pompous, only to end up eating those words later on. One team member starts out calling his team “survivors and thrivers,” then ends up having to deal with getting lost, misunderstanding a bus schedule, not doing a roadblock the right way, and even Marie, who should probably take the advice herself, telling him to “Zip it, Bingo.” Departing from: Iquique, Chile Teams: Tim and Marie: Exes from Morristown, NJ. Time of departure: 2:52 AM. She [...]

The Amazing Race, Sept. 29 – Looking for Quasimodo

Another season of The Amazing Race is ahead of us. We have the same cast as we usually do, as far as fighting exes, a dating couple, a married couple, childhood friends, performers, athletes, etc. It’s clear from the following cast who will be the frontrunners throughout the Race. Teams: Chester and Ephraim: Former NFL teammates from Houston. They both went to San Diego State, and Ephraim shopped at a store where Chester was employed as a bagger. Ephraim convinced him to play football for [...]
