~Amazing Race 20~

I'm excited that a new season of Amazing Race is here! I had to watch the first episode online because my DVR didn't pick it up. But now it is scheduled to record all the episodes so we're good.

This is one reality show that I really enjoy, for a number of reasons. One reason is that I feel it is the least unscripted of the reality shows out there. If they miss a shot they can't exactly ask the contestants to go back and redo what they've done. Commentary by the contestants is limited, so you're seeing straight action all the way through. Each episode is a nail-biter!

I haven't picked a favorite yet. Last season, I was anxious for several teams to be eliminated, and my least favorite ended up winning! So far I don't have a favorite or a team I'm rooting for elimination for! :)

Do you watch? and do you have a favorite yet?

We LOVE Amazing Race at our house! It's one of the few tv shows that we watch around here. We were really pulling for the "clown" couple - Dave and Sherry. They seemed to be really good at encouraging each other and extending "grace" in moments of weakness, We were sorry to see them go.

Of the remaining teams, we like the cousins from Mississippi (they seem pretty positive towards each other too - we love that quality!) We're looking for any other teams who seem to be good, fair "game on" folks who are respectful and appreciative of the cultures that they are privileged to visit.

We're a little disappointed that the FBI agents are outright lying about their occupation. We don't think their strategy outweighs telling the truth. This is probably WAY more than you wanted to know about our Amazing Race passion - LOL. It's always fun to find a fellow fan. :)

I really like the Amazing Race, too. And, like you, the only reality show I watch. I haven't picked a favorite team yet, either.

Sharon, the clown couple were so nice. It was sad to see them go. I agree, I don't like it when contestants lie. Thanks for your comment! :)

Becky, it's fun that you watch too! You'll have to let me know when you pick a favorite team. :)
