The Amazing Race 22: Official Thread (NO SPOILERS!)

Well, the new teams have been announced, and there's also a new twist: the team that comes in first on the first leg gets TWO Express Passes- one to keep and one that they have to give to another team.

I didn't notice any Mandatory Gay Team this time, but maybe it just isn't being highlighted.

From IMDB:

Marshall and Lance (Season 5) were the first team in Amazing Race history to quit. Marshall was suffering from a knee injury in the Roadblock in Luxor, Egypt, on Leg 6 and the team arrived at the task site after all others had left. They decided to give up.

Marshall and Lance were the first team in Amazing Race history to not only quit the race, but also be physically unable to reach the Pit Stop.

Yes, the Beekmans didn't seem gay. A lot of people thought they were brothers. You should have seen the confusion on all the message boards when they won and kissed on the lips. People were like "Why are brothers kissing on the lips? Must be a close family." I think people thought they were brothers because they thought they had the same last name of Beekman.

There's a distressing lack of male eye candy for this installment. Max is a hot little bitch but hardly masculine. Joey's got a cute face but could he be any more annoying? John the California blond is a surfer type but no beauty like David Chokachi or Laird Hamilton. The other ones are totally forgettable.

Between this and the absolutely disastrous Survivor on their latest go-around it would seem like it's time for CBS to do a serious re-think. Yes, the participants should be compelling but a sprinkling of male eye candy is absolutely essential. Was the gorgeous Bora Bora guy at the pit stop meant to compensate?

Gee, maybe it's because he lives in *Buffalo* but has a tan -- in late fall, no less -- that puts Snooki to shame? I also agree with everyone else that there is ZERO chance Joey isn't gay. I also have my suspicions about the twin doctors, who are 36 and have no mention of spouses in their bios.

How on earth has there not been a mention of hot-to-DEATH Connor? Unfortunately he's from SLC, so he's probably Mormon (though OTOH a Mormon his age would most likely either already be married or traveling the world proselytizing as mandated by the LDS church). Anyone else notice the lack of mention of which pro cycling team he's on? That would be the Livestrong team, raising the obvious question of whether he juices. On the plus side, he probably has a smokin' bod, which I hope we'll get a chance to see in Bora Bora!

The two white-trash teams bug the shit out of me. The firefighters are from Gaffney, SC, which I've unfortunately visited and know that it's Tea Party central. Team Mullet just needs to be executed. I dislike John and Jessica if only because they're so fucking perfect it's sickening.

Thus far I'm liking the roller derby moms, the Asian girls, and Team Cancer the most.

That was an interesting episode. The twins were pathetic yes but you could tell by the look in their eyes it was real fear. They were seriously challenged, just frozen with insecurity and talking about their mother. And the US/Asians, talking about their upbringing when they were easily shamed by their parents. There's a depth to the dysfunction this season. I'm really glad the twins didn't take the penalty even though they were eliminate in the end.

You try out for this show and you really don't know what to expect? Every season 90% of the black players have had problems with water. Every season there is always some challenge where you will be high off the ground yet those people fearful of heights always act like they put this in this season for the first time. Why wouldn't you practice swimming or try to take a class on beating your fear of heights?

Makes sense to me R161

If I were to be on the show, I would train for as long as my advance notice would allow me to. I would work out hard and work on conquering my fears (in my case, heights). Also, I would learn to drive a manual drive automobile.

Then I would pack my best caftans and earrings and be ready for the journey of my lifetime on The Amazing Race.

Sometimes you wonder if these contestants ever watch the show. There are three things that are a must for The Race

Rule 1. Know how to drive a stick shift, BOTH of you. You can't rely on one person driving. You won't be in America for 90% of the time.

Rule 2. You have to know how to swim, you are going to be in water.

Rule 3. No crippling fear of heights, you will be high up

It's that simple.

I think that the things you listed are essential, but I think there is a definite bias against teams who aren't in good physical shape with a degree of muscular strength. This is why teams of young males tend to do so well.

You'd think more teams would hire trainers, etc. I wonder if they have time to do much conditioning--is the start date of the race very close to the time they are notified they've been selected?

Last season, James and Jaymes were terrible at driving. Brent and Josh did poorly too.

I really struggle to find a team that I am really rooting for. At first I found the dad/son team nice, when they mentioned their struggle with cancer for the first time. After the fourth time the dad choking and holding back his drama tears I wanted him gone and let the son team up with the Youtube sensation guy. C'mon, testicular cancer boy needs some upliftment and Daddy is kind of a Debbie Downer. Guess they are gone.

I can't recall that a team ever won a prize for being the first on a two leg episode before.

The guy with the missing front teeth from the Hockey Player team looks like Prince William.

The mullet guy comes off as crazy as Ted Nugent with his taxidermy hobby.

It's odd, but to me so many of the girls on this season look like they are Katie Cassidy clones (from WB shows like Arrow, Gossip Girl, and Supernatural) .

So far I like the mom team best. Which is a first (usually I root for teams with hot male eye candy). I wonder if this could be the first season of a mom team winning? They sure seem to have the brains and brawns to go through the challenges and don't fuck up with bad navigation or route info skills.

The Youtube sensation team is second. I like how they were a team on the second episode during the pearl challenge (and the guy does look cute during the stilt challenge). But they really do play it up for the camera which I am not very fond of.

What was the point of the dog being part of the obstacle course in the latest episode?

New Zealand looks so great. For some reason I'd love to visit both Scotland and New Zealand just to compare them both based on their lush green landscapes.

I think this is the first season where I feel contempt for so many teams. The surfer team is just obnoxious and the guy really looks like a hyperactive rodent. I hate the newlyweds with a passion. I want them to divorce in the show with a huge big drama fight. The rednecks just rub me the wrong way (the woman is always whining and commenting about holding her husband back - though it was probably the best bit so far when her husband dragged her on the boat with his hand between her legs and she just laid there like a dead fish or sea lion in the second episode).

I don't like the drama of the father son team quitting or not quitting. A shame that the second express pass was wasted that way where it doesn't cause some major game change for all the racers.

So the first two teams eliminated were alpha males (the firefighters and the twin doctors, although they seemed less alpha once we got to know them). If Team Cancer is the next to do (which seems likely, considering Dad's injury), we'll have three male/male teams gone and only one (Team Hockey) left. That has to be some kind of record.

For those of you who think that joey is over acting or playing it up for the cameras, he's really not. ya'll should watch some of his daily vlogs and you'll see that he is just a very outgoing person with a very bubbly personality that makes him seem like a caricature at times. and it probably doesn't help that he's so excited to be going on this great adventure, so i'm sure that just amps up his personality even more.

anyway, lay off the guy, in one of his videos he said that he ate some paint chips when he was a kid and they had lead in them so he got lead poisoning and had to be in the special ed classes most of the way through school.

R208 Yeah, I wasn't thinking they were going to quit, but if there's any kind of challenging task that would be adversely affected by Dad's injury, they will be hard-pressed not to hobble across the finish line in last place.

Thanks for the heads up on Amazing Race Norway! I'd seen the Australian and Asian versions (both in English) but I didn't know about that one.

The season one eps seem to be torrentable if you search "Amazing Race Norge", and I watched the first one. I speak absolutely no Norwegian but was able to follow pretty well since I know the format of the show. So I have no idea what they talk about and I know nothing personal about any of the teams but you can follow the race aspect. I don't know that I'd watch more than one ep, but it's fun as a mind-warp.

It seemed obvious the twins were gay, but did they actually officially talk about being gay or was it just left unsaid like with Deaf Luke and Asskicker Keisha from the American version?

Anyway, I may watch a bit more, but I'm actually a little more mindblown that there is "The Apprentice Ireland". I knew about the UK version, but I had no idea Ireland had its own knockoff of a knockoff of Trump. Irish MBA twits, gay tattooed Norsk twins - reality television has really expanded my world.

I'm glad you liked it, R261. It's pretty close to the American version, so it should be easy to follow, even if you don't speak the language. I think the gay issue was just left unsaid, even though it was obvious, lol. They also did an interview with a big gay website here in Norway. But yes, on the actual show I don't think it was mentioned much, especially considering you had the token gay team in the lesbian couple, and as you may know, only one gay team per season on The Amazing Race!

I think John figured the Express Pass was not worth expending this early. So he kept putting off using it until it was too late. Kinda reminds me of people who are found dead in the desert with water still in their canteen.

I wonder if the show will bend the rule for the father son team and the son will be allowed to do all the roadblock and detour challenges? That's the only way they can stay in the game (unless both have to work together in a physical task that needs daddy to be quick on his feet).

Remember that country singer guy and his 'girlfriend' (a chick he met days before the race) and the girl was terrified of heights and couldn't slide down some waterslide in the Middle East? For weeks people claimed that the couple didn't break up right after the incident and then by the end of the season it was revealed that they did indeed break up.

by Anonymousreply 27903/12/2013

The only reason I felt bad for John was because he seemed to be losing his mind. He was worse than Karl Rove on Election Night.

Jessica is culpable as well. She stayed passive and never really asserted herself. When they were leaving Fruity Top she should've been adamant that it was time to use the Express Pass. Instead, she let him be "the man." She'll never do that again.

Last night's episode was a passive-aggressive slap in the face to Americans by the Vietnamese. From the pit stop being at the site of a crashed B-52 to the song praising communism; it was revolting.

Another East Asian team wins a leg in an East Asian country. I remember when Tammy and Victor won years ago. People denied they had an advantage in China. These East Asian teams are more familiar with East Asia than non-East Asian team which gives them an advantage but there clearly is a strong bias among East Asians to respond to other East Asians quicker and more accurately than to non-East Asians. Everyone caught up before the leg began so they were on a level playing field at the start. I remember when a taxi in China passed by another team who were waving for a taxi and picked up Tammy and Victor.

R387 i personally think he's gay because he likes to play the gender pronoun game and those pronouns feel out of place and not like they fit in his normal speech patterns. and because if he were straight then he would have said so at least once because i know he sees people asking him if he's gay all the time on his youtube comments, plus he does ask joey videos, but he's never once addressed his relationship status or his sexuality. a lot of the other male youtubers that have gotten gay rumors have had no problem in denying it. so i'm not saying he's gay just because of his mannerisms, i'm saying i think he's gay because all of that just doesn't add up to him being straight.

From now on, when anybody asks "Is so-and-so gay?", I'm going to answer, "No, he ate lead paint chips," because the mannerisms between being gay and being mentally deficient seem to be interchangeable.

I think Joey is a fag who ate paint chips. Can't he be both? By the way, his savvy play towards the cameras makes him seem smart not slow.
