Double Your Money
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04star.gif)


A good start to another season of The Amazing Race. The new twist for this season is that the first team to finish first during the opening leg of the Race will have the opportunity to 'Double Their Money' at the end. What this means is that the first team to notch a victory for Leg 1 can now win $2 Million if they are the first team to cross the finish line. All other teams will have to settle for a measly $1 Million. Oh, it must suck to win that puny amount of cash.

After watching the premiere episode, I already can't stand two teams in particular. The first team that I want off by next week is the Chippendale's Team. They are the dumbest meat heads on the planet. They give dudes a bad name. They make all of us look pathetic. The other team I can't stand is the Gay Couple. No, it has nothing to do with them being Gay, but everything to do with their constant whining. The longer the Race goes on, the better the chance that the Tall Gay Guy is gonna kick his boyfriends ass. You can see that he is already at the end of his rope.

The Team, as of now, that I'm pulling for to win is the 'Best Friends" Team. Don't know their names yet, but it's the Really Tall Dude and the Short Dude. They seem to have the right attitude. The Team representing San Diego is a joke. They embarrass me. The last few teams from San Diego that have been on The Amazing Race have sucked donkey balls. I don't see the trend ending anytime soon.

yeah the tall guy and short guy are cool....their not a great team but I like the rocker guys.....the bass player and entertainment lawyer...hope they are on the show a little longer...like to see the rockers represent.

I thought a few of the teams did great on that frog fallopian  tube challenge......barf city./

I am allergic to papaya so that challenge would have **** me up because of the bowl it was sitting in.

:)

I like this show and hope this is a great season....

I am with you...4 out of 5!

I feel bad that Amy was eliminated from the Race tonight. I was pulling for her because of her huge disadvantage that she has. It's not easy being in her situation at all. One person I am not pulling for now is the Tall Guy (the one with the Short Guy as his partner). The guy **** me off in how he was treating his supposedly "best friend". I didn't like the way he was constantly yelling at him, especially when the Ice fell off the cart. He talks a good game but then refuses to run to the finish line. You Dick.

James and his brother should have finished higher in the race, given the huge lead they had. Vito Bratta is very disappointed and refuses to take the stage tonight.

I have no idea what the title of this episode refers to. There is no Baseball in this one. Anyway, Gary & Will are soooooooooooo lucky to have survived. I feel bad for Caitlin & Brittany. You are only as strong and fast as your driver is. Now factor in said drivers stupidity and it's a recipe for disaster. This is the one thing I would never be able to fully embrace if I ever get on the show. You are racing for a Million bucks, but at the end of the day you have to put your faith in a complete stranger and he or she could care less if you win it or not. It's a horrible feeling to put that amount of trust and know they have no incentive to work any faster or even worst, have a basic knowledge of their own hometown.

Gary and Will are gone and good riddance! Gary (Tall Guy) would never own up to the fact that he doesn't have a problem dictating, but he can't take constructive criticism. Elsewhere, the Twins remind me of Ruthie from The Real World: Hawaii. But unlike Ruthie, these two annoy the hell out of me.

No one was kicked off the show as it was a non-elimination leg of the race which I suspected the entire episode. Just the way it's edited, if you watch the show you can pick up on this. James and Abba look to be the forerunners to dominate the race from here on out. Too bad about their Dad. That sucks.

I can't stand the Twins' voices. Listening to them talk is like nails on a chalkboard. Painful. Also, I thought it was pretty classless of them to steal money from James and Abba. Having said that, I thought it was very cool that a place with severe poverty would willingly hand over money to help James and Abba. The eating the ice cream cone "Roadblock" was a joke. Couldn't let them do something even easier than that? Ugh.

Without a doubt the funniest episode of The Amazing Race. There is nothing but comedy watching the teams try in vain to keep up with an Olympic Synchronize swimming team. Too bad about James and Abba losing all of their stuff, including their passport when their Taxi driver takes off. Bummer. I wonder how they will jump this major hurdle next week.

The Russian Professor that was overseeing the 'Moscow Time Zone' Challenge was awesome! "Pencils DOWN"! My new catch phrase for 2013!!! As for James and Abba, it sucks that they lost their passports which effectively ended their run on The Amazing Race. Bummer.

With the last team that I was pulling for to win this, I've lost my desire to watch the remaining teams compete. There isn't a team left that I want to see rewarding with $1 Million. They don't deserve the money. They are annoying and just....well they just suck. I'll finish out the season, but it's not gonna be fun. As for this episode, Abby and Ryan are hypocrites. I get that their feelings are hurt by being betrayed by their so-called "friends" James and Jaymes. But lets be real here, if Abby and Ryan were in the same situation to prolong their stay in the race, they wouldn't have thought twice about giving another team a U-Turn.

The only good thing about this episode is that the Twins are out of the race. I hated them and I'm glad they don't have a shot at the money anymore. As for the final 3, I'm stunned that the Chippendale's team made it this far. But even more shocking is to see the Gay team there as well. Worst team ever.

Unbelievable! There is no way in hell that the worst team in Amazing Race history should have been able to pull off the biggest upset ever. The Beekman's defied the odds and pulled it off. Now, you may be saying "how can you call the winner the worst team ever?". Well, they are. More or less, they came in 2nd to last every time and they actually came in last but got lucky it was a non-Elimination round. Luck of the draw and somehow they did it when it mattered most. Good job.

Correction regarding the last episode. When the Twins came in last I thought they were done. But they had one more round left in them before they were finally banished. I'm just glad they didn't win.
