anyone else watch?

i was physically revolted and felt ill and enraged after seeing jon treat his wife that way.

on another note, for a somewhat entertaining recap:

http://www.tvgasm.com/archives/amazing_race/000460.html

As the bratwurst industry enjoyed its most high profile exposure since Paris and Nicole first introduced the sausage arts to reality TV (and arguably night vision), the sexual innuendoes poured on quickly. Bolo, Lori, and Rebecca all worked together to form one giant double-entendre interchange as they described the process. Bolo: "Is it hard?" Lori: "At first." Rebecca: "Start pushing it in." Snickers all around the TVgasm offices. Meanwhile, as the meat slowly firmed up the limp intestinal casing, Rebecca asked her girlfriend Adam if he was paying attention. "I'm paying attention!" he snipped. "Good God am I paying attention!" he seemed to salivate.

Yeah I know, that was so uncalled for. What the hell is wrong with this guy? Like being in 1st place really mattered. I mean, the guy is stacked with cash in the first place. She should divorce him and find someone better.

I think this guy is disgusting, and he already has Colin+Christy beat from last season as the most abusive boyfriend. Not only was the hit bad at the end of the show, but you could hear him absolutely screaming at her a countless number of other times throughout the show. It's horrible how he treats her. Can't see those two staying together after the show.


Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

If I was her, I would have left him right then and there. Then said on the international show something embarrassing about him to the camera. Why are some girls that stupid and don't leave their partners? Thinking " he'll change, he'll change"..everytime.

That situation is very serious...they really need some marriage counseling or something like that...he was acting downright dangerous. It was a great feeling to see that they didn't finish in first, although I wish they would have been eliminated so we wouldn't have to listen to him.
Personally I don't think they should have been let on the show in the first place. As Newark777 said, he already has a ton of money, they should reserve spots on the show for people who reasonably need the prize money.

While I don't regularly see 'realty' competition programs, I do find "The Amazing Race" to be better than most. However, last night's episode showed the best and the worst these programs can be.
Among the best: Of course, anything to do with flying! The visit to Senagal, to the 'Slave House', one of the departure points for Africans to their death or if the lived the 'middle passage' to a horrible life of enslavement. This was especially true as shown by the emotional responses of several of the contestents, especially the Black Father/daughter. The visit to Berlin was good in spots, as I have visited there 3 times, while the wall still stood in 1987, as the wall became souveniers in June 1990, several months after it's collaspe, and in 2000, as it appeared in the show. The older couple, who were eliminated in this episode, showed they tried, and acted with love and affection to each other, despite their being cut. The realized that they gave it a good try and from their experience, learned more about themselves and strengthed their relationship.
The worst: The beheavor of the one couple, with the obscene bereating of his wife/girlfriend. I realize that some expression of anger, disappointment, distress and rudeness is part of the 'entertainment' of these shows, but this was beyond the call and bordered on a violation of law. The show should require all participants to carry their own bags to the checkpoints, unless all people have a place to drop off their bags. Judges in the show should also disqualify and dismiss any contestant who acts in an abusive way as occured in this show.

Totally ripping on his wife. He berates her like some second class citizen. I honestly think some other people in the race are going to take him out back and pound him for all it's worth. This guys is what you would call and "Ugly American". Self serving, arrogant and abusive. No one on this board from any country is even close to being the ass this guy is. I'm sure her parents are watching thinking "holy crap" we gotta get here outta that situation.

Did anyone catch one of the women say (in Senegal) something like, "This place is disgusting. No wonder so many people fled from here."

WHAT? These were slaves who were forced to leave here, not people looking to flee. She is the most ignorant participant I've seen so far.

This week's episode drifted closer down toward other reality TV shows, unfortunately, due to the antics described above.

^^^ No kidding. I had it TiVo'd and ran it back to make sure that I understood what she said. So make that two dumb asses in the show.

As far as drifting, I'm sure it made a lot of people say "WTF did she say"? Which makes them think about the situation.

Three dumbasses. Jonathan, Kendra, and Rebecca. Rebecca made the "escape" comment, whereas Kendra whined and moaned about "ghetto Africa" and how they "just keep breeding."


South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

I'm not watching that closely, I thought it was the same person that made both statements.

On a lighter side... I'm still laughing at MJ's comment:

"I didn't realize 7 inches was SO BIG!!!"



If you really want to do it, you will find a way; if you don't, you'll make excuses.

Remember the last season when that spoiled brat girl got all mouthy to a taxi driver in Africa? She threw his money on the ground and everything. I love how they get all pissy and demanding in foreign countries that could be dangerous especially when they're acting like arrogant assholes.

Yeah those anti-african comments she made were really uncalled for. She could have at least said them in private- not when the camera is rolling.

I'm not sure who my favorite is to win on this Race- I'd probably want the Father/Daughter combo to win, but I'm guessing it'll be one of the younger teams.
Great show though



I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.
