Amazing Race 12

Amazing Race logoNo, don’t worry, this isn’t a return to weekly recaps of reality shows.  That is long dead.

When CBS canceled Viva Laughlin, there was a benefit to those of us who love The Amazing Race… we didn’t have to wait until January for the new season!  Instead, it starts tonight at 8 EST/7 CST.

This is the12th cycle of the five-time Emmy-winning series.   While I fully admit most reality shows are tripe, AR is a non-stop,nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat ride across the world.  It is also the only show I have thought many times of applying for.  Finding a partner with all the necessary talents we would need would be the rough part, AND stand traveling the world with them, would be a heck of a chore.  Never the less, it would be grand fun.

For those who already watch the show, good news… NO MORE NON-ELIMINATION PIT STOPS!  WOO! This has always been the flaw in the show to me, and it is now gone.  I couldn’t be more thrilled.

So, for those that don’t know the show, please give it a try.  For those who already know of the joys of AR… I am so ready!
