Amazing Race 22 – Ep 1 – The Sandcastles Full of Quitters

The 22nd running of the Amazing Race kicked off this past Sunday, and it did something I have always wondered why it has basically avoided over all of these years – it went to the South Pacific. There are tons of islands all over the Pacific and with the exception of Australia and New Zealand (and Hawaii too), the Amazing Race has spent very little time exploring Oceania at all. Just stay off of this flight. Gorgeous beaches and waters, hot weather, it seems like [...]

The Amazing Race, Feb. 17 – Looking for a Vodka-7 But Finding a Clue

Really? The next season of The Amazing Race is starting up already? It seems like it was just a few days ago that the Beekman Boys won the Race. How are we looking at another new crop of teams already? And it’s really season 22? All this from a show that was on its way to cancellation before hitting season 5. The eleven teams will be starting from Los Angeles, the Griffith Observatory to be exact. The teams are: Chuck and Wynona, married 15 years, [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Finale – You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

The Finale this season is basically two episodes – just as I suspected last week. And boy, I can also see why they chose to structure the season the way they did. It was compelling to see the Hairs deal with their passport problems in Russia and it deserved attention. Now we see why it was especially important to focus so deeply on the descent into travel hell experienced by the Goats and Apprentice. It was to set up this stunning finale. And, seriously Race [...]

The Amazing Race, Dec. 9 – “You Just Can’t Quit”

The timeframe between the final four teams on The Amazing Race seems pretty tight, meaning it can literally be anyone's race to win tonight on the finale. With a two-hour episode, there will be at least one flight, if not two, meaning everyone stands the chance of being completely caught up with each other. The smart choice for winners would be either Trey and Lexi or Chippendale dancers Jaymes and James, but depending on the final challenges, I wouldn't be shocked seeing The Beekman Boys [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Episode 10 – To Dream The Impossible Dream

For those who don’t get the title – Man of La Mancha. Don Quixote. Oh, you’ll see. I probably should have realized once I saw that the season finale this Sunday was two hours long that this week was going to be a non-elimination. But, I wasn’t paying attention, and so I was actually surprised when this leg led to a reprieve. It’s a bit different than recent seasons, and I am assuming they did it this way because of the passport episode and the [...]

The Amazing Race, Dec. 2 – Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey

I don't know how they do it, but the Fabulous Beekman Boys, Josh and Brent, just keep hanging on week after week. They survived a non-elimination, and somehow have always been second to last or just a little before since the beginning of this season of The Amazing Race. I think they're due to come in first on a leg. The first team to leave Amsterdam are sisters Natalie and Nadiya at 2:55 AM. Their clue tells them to fly to Barcelona, Spain. When they [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Episode 9 – Do We Really Have To Talk About The U-Turn Again?

Ah, crap. We have to talk about the U-Turn again. Seriously. I expect to hear “I Got You Babe” playing on the clock radio. And having to address this one more time is taking me away from being pissed about Team Apprentice’s removal from the Race – and connected to that elimination – the inexplicable dislike shown to this team by some of the other teams. The dynamic of this season continues to be incredibly strange. But first, the U-Turn. For those who continue to [...]

The Amazing Race, Nov. 25 – Friendship vs. Playing the Game

This season of The Amazing Race is starting to shape up. Only the strongest of racers are left, and they're all on an equal playing ground after twins Natalie and Nadiya used their Express Pass. Some might say goat farmers Josh and Brent aren't strong racers, but they find a way to keep moving through no matter what. And making it an even more tense leg of the Race, there will be a Double U-Turn. Who will get stuck? The first team to leave Moscow [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Episode 8 – PENCILS DOWN! NEXT ROUND!

Can you recall a more fun episode of the Amazing Race where the end result was pretty obvious from the first minute? Let me put it simply – we are at our Final Five now and I ask if anyone really has a team they truly dislike? I mean, each team has had moments – especially in Moscow – where they had very relatable moments. I can honestly say – if Texas won the Race, I would not be that upset. I use them as [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Episode 7 – Note To Racers: Stop Losing Your Passports

I just don’t understand it. Maybe it’s a Moscow thing – this makes two trips to the Russian capitol where a team has had a passport issue. If you recall, Toni/Dallas got ousted in the Final Four of Season 13 because of a lost passport. You cannot move on to the next country unless you have a passport. More so than your cash supply, you should keep your passports stapled to your body – you can always beg for money, you can’t beg for official [...]
