The Amazing Race

Postby kimchi_chigae » Fri Feb 13, 2009 5:45 am

Season 14 starts this Sunday. Any TAR fans in here? :-)

IMHO, The Amazing Race is easily the best reality show out there. Yeah, I said it, My Super Sweet 16 fans. Here at the Kimchi household, TAR premiere is bigger than a Natalie Imbruglia concert in 1999. Thats whats going on, nothings fine Im torn/Im all out of faith, this is how I feel/Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor...

This season's cast.

I've never watched it, but I'm a big fan of Survivor, so I decided to check out TAR this season. I'll let you know what I think!

I used to really like it but I'm kind of burned out. It is pretty much the same thing every season now. The way they show different countries and cultures is about the only draw for me. The people and challenges are interchangeable.
But I'll probably watch cause my wife still loves it.

I like it especially when you get a couple that bicker all the time. It's great.

Get in plane, go where you need to go end of story.

I have never seen this show, sounded cool but not a reality show fan.

don't forget the editting that makes it look like a dramatic, close finish when , in actuality, the two teams are minutes and, in some cases, hours apart..some race

I have watched one series in full, the one where there was a horrible old man yelling out "It's time to suck it up hoo-arr!", and yelling at the Vietnamese people "Didi Mau!" Hilarious.

Fun fact:

Phil whathisface was on a New Zealand kids show that I used to watch when I was 7 or 8 called 3:45 Live. :-D :-b
