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 ...

The Amazing Race, Feb. 26 – The Importance of Math Skills

Sorry for the late edition of The Amazing Race recap this week. I was gone for the weekend and celebrating my in-laws’ 50th anniversary. A good time was had by all, but now I need to get back into it and find out what happened on the Race this week! The first team to leave the pit stop in Argentina are Blonde Rachel and Dave at 2:46 AM. Their clue tells them to drive themselves to the Cafayate Town Square and wait for the “chasqui,” [...]

Amazing Race 20 – Ep 2 – The Episode Where We Watch Water Boil

That’s right. This week, on The Amazing Race, the millions of fans of the show sat back to watch teams watch a pot of water boil. In fact, the show was centered on two tasks which featured boiling water and long division. Who said TAR didn’t provide excitement! Tea and math. So, your Aunt Mary and Mrs. Luftig, your fifth grade teacher, could have made an excellent pair this week! And yes, I have several Aunt Marys and my fifth grade teacher was Mrs. Luftig [...]

Amazing Race 20 – Ep 1 – The Dumbest Move in Race History

Season 20 of the Amazing Race is off and running! Incredible for a show that was once not expected to last longer than four seasons. And even more incredible is that the premiere episode of Season 20 provided us with one of the weirdest Pit Stop moments ever, which was also arguably the dumbest move in the history of the show. This wasn’t a wrong turn, or a challenge mistake, or a poor flight choice – those are understandable – this was, well, jaw-droppingly ridiculous. [...]

The Amazing Race, Feb. 19 – “My Uterus Is In My Throat!”

The Amazing Race, Feb. 19 – Of course the most talked about team on this season of The Amazing Race is Brendon and Rachel from Big Brother fame. I might be in the minority, but I hope they make it kind of far. Everyone has to admit they make good TV, even if they sometimes make you want to throw things at the screen. They can stick it to Ethan and Jenna from Survivor if they make it further than the second week. The teams [...]

Amazing Race 19 Commentary – Finale – Recalculating … Recalculating

Those words are your GPS’ way of saying F U to you as you mess up its properly mapped out directions. We have all been there. I feel like a scolded child whenever Brenda (that’s what we have named our GPS’ voice) condescendingly (yep, I said it) tells me she is recalculating to make up for my dumb ass driving. It’s very frustrating. And that’s just when I can’t find the ice skating rink where my son’s classmate is having her birthday party. Imagine how [...]

The Amazing Race, Dec. 11 – Wake Me Up When It’s the Finale

In the beginning of The Amazing Race, no one would have figured on this particular final three teams. Perhaps Amani and Marcus, and maybe Ernie and Cindy, but definitely not Jeremy and Sandy, and definitely Andy and Tommy would have figured somewhere in the mix. This makes the finale just seem to have a completely different feel to it. The first team to leave the pit stop in Panama are Jeremy and Sandy at 12:04 AM. Their clue tells them to fly to Atlanta, Georgia, [...]

Amazing Race 19 Commentary – Ep 11- Holy Balls, Cabbies Strike Again

I am not saying this is good, nor am I saying this is bad, but once again non-Racers decided the Race this week. If anything, one of the biggest influences on Race performance in the 19 seasons of the show has been local cab drivers. It is in the fabric of the show – it is completely unavoidable if you want a Race that is exciting, authentic and feasible. As much as I love seeing teams take public transportation – ample options do not exist [...]

The Amazing Race, Dec. 4. – Panama Not Just for Van Halen

It seems no one wanted to say goodbye to Bill and Cathi last week. They had a good run. Amend that … they had a great run. If any older couple could have finally won, it seemed it would have been them. And I still say that woman has an awesome body for her age … even for a younger woman she has a good body. The bodybuilding judge that told them they obviously work out I think was mainly talking to her. It will [...]

Amazing Race 19 – Ep 10 Commentary – Leggo My Eggo

The Race picks up where it left off last week with the Peytons learning that this leg ain’t over and getting their next clue from Phil, with Control Freak and Jeremy 2.0 heading to the Mat, and with the Dudes and Geritol still struggling to impress the American Idol for Van Damme impersonators panel. What will unfold will sadden those who have taken a strong liking to our favorite grandparents from the farm. As is the often the case, teams lagging behind find it hard [...]

The Amazing Race, Nov. 27 – “That’s How You Drive”

There were questions left unanswered after last week’s The Amazing Race episode. For one, it was a leg of the Race that ended without a period of rest following it. Marcus and Amani got to the mat first and were told the race was still going on and handed the next clue. Would it be a non-elimination leg? The only team not shown racing in the previews were Bill and Cathi. Were Ernie and Cindy going to get some type of penalty for riding the [...]
