The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

Unlike the previous week's battles, these really are battles and not duets. Not that duets are bad, it just makes it really hard to choose one or see one of ...

These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

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 ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

Amazing Race 21 – Episode 6 – “Bangladesh Good. Not Bad”

Yeah, yeah, late again. I know. This week’s Amazing Race involved a change of setting – bye bye Bangladesh, hello Turkey. Teams got bunched up and sent to the European side of Turkey, only to be re-routed to the Asian side of Turkey – a fun usage of the unique nature of Turkey. But despite the tasks, the scrambling and the elimination of a team, one occurrence which took place this week stands out as the item of conversation. Look, Twins, I want to like [...]

The Amazing Race, Nov. 4 – Bad, Bad, Bad Karma

It was a great relief to see Josh and Brent, AKA The Beekman Boys, saved last week by the non-elimination. It couldn't have happened to a more deserving team. However, they have a lot of work ahead of them to now fight back. They have time and an extra task against them, but will be traveling to Istanbul, so hopefully they'll have a time equalizer of a flight ahead of them as well to make up a little ground. The first team to leave from [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Episode 5 – Bamboo In The Face Is Always Funny

Before I start, two things. First, the lateness of this column is due to one thing and one thing only. Sandy. Granted, I am often late with things anyway, but this time…well…I’ve been very distracted. I am copying a piece of my Survivor article here now – While we poke fun and tease in columns such as this, we have to always remember that they are all real people, not scripted characters. In a related note, this column went up a couple of days late [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 28 – What a Partnership Is All About

They haven't done a non-elimination yet on this season of The Amazing Race, and it leaves me on the edge of my seat just waiting for it. While they do change it up all the time, for at least the past handful or so of seasons, in the first few weeks they have been having either a non-elimination leg or one where the leg isn't over by the time the racers see Phil Keoghan.. We haven't seen either of those situations yet. Will we finally [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Ep 4 – C’Mon Twinnie!! Long, Strong and Hard!

A strange thing began to happen during this week’s Amazing Race – the team I think the show wants me to root for began to annoy me to epic proportions, while the team I think I am not supposed to like began to grow on me quite a bit. This phenomenon truly took form two other times in Race history. The first was the Charla/Mirna vs. Colin/Christie battle in Season 5. The world loved the cousin team, except for me. They were nails on the [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 21 – The Physically Demanding Race

Gary and Will have to find a way to get their act together this week. They keep barely squeaking by each week. The only thing that saved them last week was Caitlin and Brittany's unfortunate luck to have a rickshaw driver who didn't know where he was going that was paired with their inability to realize they were in a country with people who didn't speak English. Gary and Will just have to find a way to do it. The first team to leave Indonesia [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Ep 3 – You Can Be Pretty And Ugly At The Same Time

Before I get into the wonders of Race Karma – which I don’t believe in when it comes to using the U-Turn, etc., but I do when it comes to attitude – I want to just give a small lesson to all future Racers. I don’t care how good looking you are, or think you are. I don’t care if you have no experience outside of your own small town. I don’t care if you are the smartest person in your circle of friends. I [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 14 – So Hot, Could Fry an Egg on My Head

It was kind of a surprise to see Amy and Daniel eliminated last week on The Amazing Race. And for it to come because of a bad taxi driver is always hard to see. They were supposed to be major contenders and were doing so well. It's just a part of the Race, though, and what they need to expect. The first team to leave Indonesia tonight are the sisters, Natalie and Nadiya, at 6:07 AM. Their clue tells them to make their way to [...]

Amazing Race 21 – Ep 2 – A Big Yellow Taxi Took My Race Dreams Away

Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got, til it’s gone? I need to stop finding teams I like. Upon watching this week’s episode with my wife, she asked me which teams I liked early on. It is fairly early to get a good sense of the teams – not a lot of airtime to go around for each one – but I mentioned some early affection for Fantasy Island (Gary/Will), The Hairs (James/Abba), and Amy/Daniel (no good nickname). So, [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 7 – Familiar Foe Takes Down Another Team

There are differences of opinion out there on how great of a rule change this option of the this season's The Amazing Race winners getting $2 million is. Personally, I like it … at least this season. I like when these reality shows that have been around for so long change it up so that the players and the viewers don't know what's coming next. I might not want it again after this season, but for now, I like it. The first team to leave [...]
