Another season of The Amazing Race has begun! Lemme first just say…WHEN are they going to start showing/filming this show in HD?! Considering they travel all over the world and have SO MANY scenic shots…HD would b awesome! I’m just saying…
So far, no real standouts as far as favorites go. Right now, I”d probably say I like:
STEVE & ALLIE: Umm, just have to say that Allie looks JUST like Shenae Grimes from 90210 (Annie). She REALLY does. They’re a cute team. When they were trying to find that house to paint red, and ended up painting some random guy’s inside walls…OMG! That was a perfect example of how the language barrier really makes it difficult. Poor guy! He got a free, but totally UNWANTED and UNAPPROVED paint job!
JODY & SHANNON: Obviously I’m going to root for the grandma/granddaughter team! How awesome is Jody?! A triathlete at 71 years old! She was totally speeding by that police officer team when they were running thru Los Angeles! They are currently in last place, so I’m hoping they can pick things up and get some better luck in the next leg…they deserve a shot!
Just some other observations about some other teams:
JET & CORD: Not to sound stereotypical, but why do all cowboys have the same kind of accent/look alike?! These Oklahoma guys pretty much epitomize what you would think cowboys are like. When they exchanged their US dollars for Brazilian money instead of Chilean money…! How come they didn’t specifically tell the teller Chile?! Poor guys! But surprisingly, considering they didn’t really start off on the right foot, they sure jumped towards the head of the pack by the pit stop! Not bad!
BRENT & CAITE: How can I NOT mention Caite?! Miss “people don’t have maps” pageant girl. Oh man, when they re-showed her clip from the pageant and her answer…OMG. It all came back. And Caite now on this show is NOT giving pageant girls a good name. She’s still so ditzy and the things she says…”Let’s go real fast!” What are you…5 years old?! And why does her face look different compared to back when she was competing in the pageant? More makeup then? She looks very different, imo. I can’t believe we have to sit thru her little comments for this whole race…
Oh, and their stupid little mistake of not taking the required transportation down the hill and walking it instead…30 minutes for that! They went from 2nd place all the way down to 7th in just 30 min! How sucky for them! Next time…READ THE CLUE and FOLLOW DIRECTIONS!
I will say that roadblock was pretty tough! I mean…the length of a FOOTBALL FIELD! That’s gosh darn FAR to be hanging on/balancing across tiny little wires like that! I don’t blame them for having a tough time…
DANA & ADRIAN: The first team to be eliminated…poor thing! I felt bad for Adrian…he had such a hard time on that roadblock. At least he gave it a 2nd try! The loss was a hard one tho ’cause to be eliminated because you couldn’t complete a task…sucks. But at least he gave it his best shot.
