The Amazing Race

I don’t if any of you watch the show, “The Amazing Race” on NBC. Dan and I have been watching for a few years now. The teams that are on this season are… eclectic to say the least. There is one team on particular that drive Dan and I CRAZY, that’s because they are CRAZY. Their names are John & Victoria. He is an entrepeneur of some kind, and she is married to him. He blames her for everything- even when it’s his fault. He yells at everyone and anything for any reason. He makes me so mad… I want to kick him! She yells back at him, but he is definitely abusive. Supposedly they “make up” after they fight. Mostly it is him yelling at her for some reason or another. She does argue back but, he drives her to it. As much as they bother us, Dan & I still watch every week. We can’t wait till they get booted- his reaction will be… interesting to say the least.

  1. I’ve heard from people who have stopped watching because it seems like they are trying to cast people like that now (that are likely to blow up and/or dislike each other), to generate more of that kind of tension.

    I stopped watching it regularly before that just because it doesn’t seem very competitive to me; it seems like it’s structured to never allow any team to get more than a 24 hour lead on any other team. I may have missed something, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen on this show, and it seems like it would after 5 or 6 seasons.

  2. Yes, I agree. “They” definitely pick people who will bring a lot of drama to the show for ratings.

    I hear you! Every time they begin a new leg of the race, they are all together at the first stop! What’s the point of having a large lead? Except that if you come in first you win a trip!

  3. i stopped watching the tour de france for the same reason. that and because cycling blows.
