The Amazing Race

I'm totally excited for the new season of Amazing Race - it's going to be all stars, and several of my favorite teams are back. The coal-miners from Kentucky are returning, as are Rob and Amber and a few other notable teams.

I have to say, of all of the reality TV shows, Amazing Race is the only one I might actually apply to be on. I've been sucked into watching a few other reality shows (well, actually most of the reality shows, if I'm really honest with myself). I don't think I'm talented enough for American Idol, Project Runway, or So You Think You Can Dance. I don't think I'm tall or tiny enough for America's Top Model. And I don't think I started out famous enough for the Surreal Life or that Paris Hilton one. So by process of elimination, I think we're down to Amazing Race.

And I think it would be cool to travel to all of those places - I'd probably have to pick someone who didn't mind the eating challenges (although I have already eaten camel prepared the same way as on the Amazing Race last season, so I may have a stronger stomach than I think!). I don't know how I'd handle jet lag and what I'm sure is a lack of sleep, but most contestants on the show seem to be ok, so I'm sure I could tough it out. Especially for a million dollars.

The next season starts in February, so I can't wait until then.

But... what about Survivor? I love Amazing Race too, though I didn't watch the most recently shown (over here) season (the families one). The all-stars one should be good.

Yay, I love the Amazing Race and I hope Rob and Amber win this time!! I missed the most recent season but I'll be sure to check this one out.

Great progress on Alhambra Garden, btw!

I love Amazing Race. There are a few teams it would have been nice to see again but overall the teams are great. I have to say I like the Romber team. Rob is a very competitive player and I know that bothers some people but my standard is how the team treats each other. He's alway a sweetie to Amber and to me that says a lot about him. I like Survivor too, but TAR is my favorite.

I've never heard/seen that show here....but what about Big Brother? That would be the one I'd go on if I had to pick......but the stakes would have to be HIGH to tempt me, lol

I LOVE Amazing Race. I think the thing I love most about it is getting to see all the places they go. Can't wait for the new season to start!

Hey you forgot Big Brother. But you can't bring in anything so 3 months without stitching would be torture. You could probably squeeze in a few little things in your Amazing Race backpack. I look forward to watching in Feb too. CJ
