Not so Amazing contestants

So last night was the start of the Amazing Race. I’ve missed the last few for whatever reason, but managed to catch the first episode.

Not too bad. But i think it’s time to start asking people to pass a test before going on the show. The old Hippie couple (Anita and Arthur) would have been fun to watch, I think, if they could have made it anywhere. They were the last to get going at the start of the race, and never caught up. It was like the Tortoise and the Hare, except that there was no chance of them actually pulling out a fluke win.

These people have to be screened in advanced. It’s no fun to watch the first episode when you know what the outcome is going to be.

But for now, my money is on Nick and Starr, the brother and sister combination, to win it all. I think they’re both athletic and smart enough to do well in the challenges, and won’t have the baggage that married or dating couples have.

    I agree with you … Nick and Starr are the strongest. I think I’m a fan because that’s how my brother and I would be on the show.
    I’m sure they do screen applicants, as in “How much drama will this couple create?” It wasn’t like that when the show first started, but now the focus is a lot more on the tantrums and relationship issues than the actual race and its challenges.

    They really should just let Canadians on.
