Amazing Race 20 – Ep 8 – Not The Bees, Not The Bees!!

Due to a very full, very crazy week, I have not been able to post my Amazing Race column all week long. So for the sake of brevity, we’ll be going with one analysis of the Double U-Turn, a much larger series of Route Markers, a description of tasks, and the order of finish. The drama of the results for the week was not really there as the Feds started out in a two hour hole, and despite catching up later on in the leg, [...]

The Amazing Race, April 15 – Kookoocachoo the Baboons

The racers should all know the U-Turn is coming. It’s directly following a non-elimination leg, and there are only six teams left. And with all the crap that was flying between them all after last week, who knows how this is going to turn out. The Teachers/Federal Agents aren’t out of it yet. Everyone could gang up on others in the Double U-Turn, which would allow the Federal Agents to catch up. There aren’t many there who like Big Brother team Rachel and Brendon, so [...]

The Amazing Race, Apr. 8 – Camping and Arguing Go Together

The last episode of The Amazing Race was a pretty good one, although I had to read through my past recap to remember it. CBS skipped airing the show for a week, then I was out of town last weekend. I’m just now unburying from that mess, and now I’m remembering that last episode. Joey and Danny were eliminated, and Border Patrol finally lost their hold on first place. Will they get it back this week? The first team to leave the pit stop in [...]

Amazing Race 20 – Ep 7 – Do I Have To Pick A Side?

That’s what this season of the Amazing Race has devolved into – after a promising beginning, and some pretty decent locations and challenges, we have reached the point where I don’t want to root for any of them except for Team Bopper. This week, we spent about half of the episode dealing with inter-team fighting, and then a little intra-team fighting for good measure. I am left with two teams I cannot bring myself to root for – and ironically, they are the two teams [...]

Amazing Race 20 – Ep 6 – The Weirdest Challenge In 20 Races

And that is certainly saying something. Teams have had to slingshot watermelons, roll cheese down a hill, unravel bales of hay across a field, and run almost naked through the frozen streets of Russia over the last several years. But I must say that the Detour that took place during the Race’s first foray into Azerbaijan was much stranger, and it led to some of the show’s funniest moments in recent memory. As for the goings on this week, we had another Fast Forward, and [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 25 – “Beaten by a Frickin’ Girl”

I do hope another team can jump ahead into first place tonight on The Amazing Race. It’s not because I don’t like the Border Patrol agents, as I do, but it just makes it more interesting to not see the same team in the lead every single leg. I just want to shake it up a bit. The first team to leave Bavaria are again Art and J.J., the Border Patrol agents, after checking out the Travelocity vacation they won to Thailand. They leave at [...]

Amazing Race 20 – Ep 5 – Once Upon A Time…

…There was a long-running reality show, which has been awesome for many years. It was once in constant danger of cancellation, but thanks to a groundswell of support from fans and a good Sunday night timeslot, it survived and pushed away many challengers. And then came the Evil Queen, Snow White and the other story time characters on Once Upon A Time. This would be a real challenge. So, anticipating the time slot competitor, producers of the Amazing Race crafted an episode that poked a [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 18 – “Two Dudes Running a Race”

I’m still riding on an emotional high after the great ending to last week’s Amazing Race. To have Kentucky team Bopper and Mark saved by a non-elimination, and to have Border Patrol agents Art and J.J. share their first place money bonus with them so that Bopper could use it for his daughter’s medical care was just the best ending. Hopefully they’re not too far behind and can catch up, after not making another boneheaded flight-planning mistake, of course. The first team to leave Turin, [...]

Amazing Race 20 – Ep 4 – The Million Santa March

This week provided the Tale of Two Shows. On the one hand, we had one of the most amazing moments of charity, good will and sportsmanship seen on a reality show. On the other hand, we had a meltdown of a team so intense that it had to be fake. Last week, I gave JJArt some crap for their super-confident bragging. It was getting to be too much, and still is. I said that I really wanted to root for them, but they were making [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 11 – “Run Her Hard and Think Deeply”

The twins were eliminated last week after being indecisive on the Detour. You have to make commitments in this Race. It will cost something, even if it’s just positioning. Vanessa and Ralph barely came in before them, and hopefully they learned a thing or two. Perhaps it should have been more important to work on the task than make fun of Redhead Rachel. You think? The first team to leave the pit stop in Paraguay are Border Patrol agents Art and J.J. at 5:10 PM. [...]
