Does anyone out there in the Listmaker readership watch the Amazing Race? This show keeps gaining momentum over the course of five seasons so I decided to give it a chance last night for the Season 6 premeire. My first impression- What the fuck? Is there anything to this show other than people running around and screaming at each other? Not that that can't be entertaining but I was completely bored for most of it. Maybe the two hour runnning time wasn't such a good idea. In fact, a devoted follower of the show at work told me that she didn't even watch all two hours last night. I ended up fast forwarding a good portion of the last hour only to find the two Brooklyn Jews were eliminated. I guess we control Hollywood and the World Bank, but have yet to find our niche in the reality show universe.
So I think that I want to never ever watch this show again. But then I start thinking about some of the crazy characters on the show and how refreshing it is to see such crazy people on TV. All other reality show contestants seem so bland compared to these wackos. I mean, where else can you watch a married couple of professional wrestlers compete for a million bucks?
Should I keep watching? Who has any insight into this strange show?
