Amazing Race is Back!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I didn't follow last season, but I'm back on the bandwagon.

Let me start by saying, I CAN NOT BELEIVE they got the former miss teen South Carolina. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj3iNxZ8Dww She made several points of saying how she wasn:t dumb but then did not really demonstrate that to be fact.

Right now I'm rooting for triathalon granny & her granddaughter. I also like the cowboys and the NJ cops are good comedic fodder for DH.

Who do yoou like?

I personally don't get the big deal about miss teen america, so she made a mistake on national television.

I am rooting for Jeff and Jordan, and I'm also liking the cowboys, they really proved themselves in this first leg.

I'm excited for this season!

Go Cowboys! Loving them!

I think it was a smart move on the teams part to take a bus and then a bus instead of a direct connect.

Man, those cutie cowboys are kicking butt! Are they the new hippies?

I'm sad to see triathalon granny go, though. I thought she would have made it a few more legs.

And when will they learn? PEOPLE, IF YOU ARE GOING TO GO ON THE AMAZING RACE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY, LEARN TO DRIVE A #@*&^(*#&)**@@! CLUTCH! DUH!

Totally love Jeff and Jordan!

Best line ever..."We are so stupid...we shouldn't be allowed to reproduce!" Hysterical!

didn't watch last night's show yet, but I've enjoyed the first two shows so far. I wish the granny had gotten further, they seemed like great people.

I LOVED it when the one team painted the inside of some random person's house, thinking that was the challenge! And at the end how the people had no idea what they were talking about when they asked for the clue!

Yes that painting scene was hilarious!

Yes, the painting scene was awesome!

I'm thinking it's the cowboys all the way. Jeff and Jordan seem strong, too. I really thought the Grandma would make it further.

I'm loving the cowboys too. They are totally the new hippies. Remember BJ & what's his name a few seasons back? The Harvard Hippies? I loved them they were dear.

I am really disliking the lesbians, though. Mean, stuck-up, & coniving. I mean I know that some of it is editing & such, but they do seam sneaky. I mean, like the cowboys knew there was going to be a lasso challenge?

And again with the stick problems. Really, it's not that hard people.

This is my first season watching. My niece made me watch with her while we were visiting and I really liked it. The cowboys are awesome. "We need to get a bagwette. What's a bagwette?" At least they had it right when they got to the bakery and asked for a 'baguette'. lol

I like the father/daughter team a lot also.

The brothers made me nuts before this last week, but this time they were cracking me up. "Will you PLEASE SHUT UP!" lol

What season are the 'hippies' you're talking about on? I may go back and watch it ...

I like the two detectives, the cowboy brothers, and the father/daughter team.

The two lesbian team...their dynamic isn't so good.
The dating team that had to do the Speed Bump because they came in last (forgot their names)..boy is he a jerk or what? She can be whiney, but he's mean to her. I can't see them making it far. They don't have good teamwork. I've watched this show for many seasons. Teams who win have good teamwork. Teams who belittle each other don't get very far.

I don't remember BJ, but I remember TK and Rachel, the hippies. They were cool, calm and happy. They won the Amazing Race for their season which was Season 12.

DH and I love this show!! We're rooting for the cowboys as well.

And BJ and Tyler won season 9.

Looking at that link made me realize the only season we haven't watched was eight, and that was the season we wanted to apply for but we didn't have a family then.

ETA: BookGoddess, that team is Jeff and Jordana and they did a season of Big Brother together (did not know eachother beforehand), which she won.

Boy, the cowboys got a raw deal this time around. But the detectives are fun too. I'm betting for either the lesbians or the brothers to go out next. Those two young teams are d.u.m.b. Miss South Carolina isn't doing herself any favors.

BJ & Tyler were the best! I them! I've watched most of the seasons but last time. Too much football. Thanks, DH!

He was totally not mean to her, and not to mention they had excellent team work on Big Brother, they are just newly dating and yes he was a bit harsh but he was trying to motivate her.

Yay cowboys! And the detectives. The brothers are ok too. That's my ideal final 3.

I'm wondering if the save they got last week was really predetermined, or if they were saved because the producers knew they'd be a popular team.

I wonder that too...but they're back on top, and the cowboys & going to take the whole enchilada I think.
