The Amazing Race News!






Lots of news…

First… CBS ORDERS 8TH AND 9TH SEASON OF THE AMAZING RACE
CBS has officially ordered two more seasons to air in the 2005-2006 television season. And the 8th season, that will air in Fall 2005, will be a family edition where teams will be made up of 4 people who are party of the same family. Some examples are two parents and two kids, four brothers or four sisters, multigenerational, engaged couple and future in-laws, etc…
Teams can have team members as young as 12… hmm… I guess I don’t have to wait until I turn 21 to apply for TAR… lol

CBS ANNOUNCES 11 TEAMS FOR SEASON 7
Ugh… Romber… ewe… its funny that their listed occupation is “Runner-up” or “Winner of ‘Survivor: All-Stars'”… lol pathetic… and there are several all male teams… which was previously unofficially banned because three out of the four winners from TAR1 to TAR4 were the male best buddies or the married gay couple…

My early favorite is of course the older couple Meredith & Gretchen… and the Mother/Son team of Susan & Patrick… right now I see no Kris & Jon which is good, because there can never be another Kris & Jon 🙂

Recap: The Amazing Race 6, Episode 13 – Season Finale







EPISODE 6-13: 4 CONTINENTS, 24 COUNTRIES, 40,000 MILES

 
I love Kris & Jon… they are just amazing… not once in this whole RACE did they fight, yell, degrade each other, insult each other, insult the country they were in, or lose their cool… every chance they had, they would enjoy their surroundings (no matter where they were), have fun, motivate each other, encourage each other, love each other, love other people… they are just simply the BEST team to ever run THE AMAZING RACE… they appreciated everything, made few mistakes, were very strong, always pulled ahead using their strength and intelligence… and like Jon said about Kris in Africa… They both looked “damn good” running the Race… I just can’t say enough about them… CONGRATULATIONS ON A TRULY AMAZING RACE

Freddy & Kendra were the last team I wanted to win out of the Final Four… Kendra acted like a spoiled bitch the entire Race… she made incredibly racist comments about ALL the “third world/ghetto” countries, if not most of all the countries… She and Freddy would constantly fight over the most unimportant things… and we saw a lot of that again tonight… Freddy was so cocky the entire Race… from thinking he could “break [Lori & Bolo] in half” to thinking he and Kendra could fly into first every leg… he was incredibly smug, and luck played a big part in them winning… They called their Chinese taxi driver a “dumbass” … very polite … and then Freddy asking the police officer to lead their taxi because it was an “emergency”… geez… They would have been eliminated in Ethiopia had it not been for Adam and Jonathan‘s stupid mistakes… And how that “dying child” crap at the airport… what a frackin bitch… NO MORE MODELS ON THE AMAZING RACE… becuase they will probably be cocky and spoiled…

Hayden & Aaron would’ve been my 2nd pick to win… up until tonight’s episode… They exploded and almost began acting like Jonathan & Victoria (no to each other, but to the Chinese people and their backpacks)… and they quit… No matter what… you should never quit THE AMAZING RACE as seen in season 1… while it wouldn’t have mattered tonight, their quitting showed their weakest parts that can’t really justify a $1 Million. Congrats on their engagement though… we’ll see tomorrow if they are still engaged… lol

Adam & Rebecca let their relationship or whatever they call it hurt them big time in the Race… From uncondusive sunglasses to lost sunglasses… Adam & Rebecca were a mess… they got through every leg on pure luck…

As for the finale… let’s go in order… the mix-up with captioning Kris & Jon as Hayden & Aaron was funny… I was very surprised by the anger they showed… after that they deserve to be eliminated… and quitting is never a good thing…

TAR6 will be the one with the hardest ROAD BLOCKS for sure… those keys were brutal, but Kris managed to figure out that you only try the big locks pretty quick… she should’ve gone up to 7pm, but their frustration set in…

I did not like both DETOUR and ROAD BLOCK in Hawaii when the final city was not Honolulu… the ROAD BLOCK should be in the final city, just like TAR3 with “travel by foot” a mandatory task… taxis should not be the deciding factor… and neither should be ticket agents who don’t want passengers to go to another airline…

Pizza? Instead of promoting a little pizza joint… they should’ve had a ROAD BLOCK in Chicago… I liked how they started and ended in Chicago… Of course I hated the ending… but what can I do? I was on the edge of my seat starting at 10:35PM… I had my hands folded, praying that Kris & Jon would win (yeah… there are more important things to pray for, but I will before I go to sleep)… what about that train? where did that come from? anyway… the racist and the cocky asshole won season 6 of THE AMAZING RACE… I think now the most undeserving winning team ever…
