When I discovered The Amazing Race back in its 6th season, it was a rare entity. A reality show that did not take cheap shots, was fun, was geuine, and it tested the contestants in pysical and emotional ways, as well as testing the viewers themselves. I am proud to say now in its 14th cycle, it still is! The Amazing Race finds a way to give you so much excitement as a viewer that you can’t help but root for these teams that push themseves to the limit.
My favorite thing about the show is the places. Every season brings a new local, a new interesting store, country-side, or even country. TAR has always showed us the very best in the places they go and in no way puts down any country or group of people. The race this year has a wide range of teams including the shows first deaf contestant and the team that I am looking forward to the most, School of Rock‘s writer and actor Mike White with his dad! Here are the teams:
Mel/Mike (68/38): Father/Son,
LaKisha/Jennifer (28/24): Sisters
Preston/Jennifer (28/26): Dating
Margie/Luke (50/22): Mother/Son
Brad/Victoria (52/47): Married
Cara/Jaime (26/29): Former NFL cheerleaders
Mark/Michael (48/51): Brothers/Stunt men
Christie/Jodi (37/40): Flight attendants
Linda/Steve (52/43): Married
Tammy/Victor (26/35): Siblings/Lawyers
