The Amazing Race 23 Official Thread

New teams have been announced. I haven't checked the details-- is there a gay team (or two) this season?

Looking forward to Gisele's return. She always has great snacking ideas.

Is it 11 teams that they start out with?

It doesn't say but I'd guess actor, producer, director and voice over artist Rowan Joseph (the chubby guy) might be gay. He compared himself to: "Eric Stonestreet from “Modern Family,” Lou Costello from “Abbott and Costello” and Nathan Lane."

Team Aghanimals enthusiasm is infectious.

Glad the drag queens finished top 3. It's satisfying that the doctors had to pay for their carelessness, but why with the exes?

I would love to see team AmerInd get another chance. Their narrative of whether the daughter could wrest herself from her fathers control was the most compelling of the competitors and I really would've liked to have seen the dad in next week's sexploitation challenge.

The problem is, you have to be available for close to 2 months to compete, and most folks with day jobs can't take that much time off. Hence the "wives of" and mactors and odd combo teams trying to make their mark in reality TV. The first few seasons there really were more average types, and it made the show more lovable.

I was thinking the exact same thing during the introductions last night. They could do first leg losers and a truncated "celebrity" season for charity.

Let's see "Speidi" take a break from whoring their tired asses to anyone with $200. They can try hauling/rolling some 200 lb. cheese wheels instead. I'd also like to nominate Kirstie Alley and Kate Gosselin as a team, just to see how many legs it would take before one of them killed the other.

Eliminated Dad was already getting his bitch on. When his daughter picked him up he was complaining, "What took you so long? What was the delay?" Um... flying is faster than driving, Pops. Go figure.t

The baseball wives kissed each other on the lips. That's the most lesbianish thing that's ever happened on this show. Isn't that sad.

The NFL guys were screwed by the Chilean travel agent. They were in FIRST FUCKING PLACE when they left Chile.

And what a juxtaposition to see the ER doctors coming in first, while the NFL guys came in last. This really should have been a non-elimination round because that travel agent fucked those guys over.

I love how the baseball wives got the best of the pink haired bitch. FUCK. HER.

At this point, I'm actually rooting for the Okies, even though I hate rednecks. They're so out of their element, it's good that they experience the world. It might make actually expand their minds.

I wouldn't mind seeing the baseball wives win, either.

They were not screwed by the travel agent. How do you figure that? NFL didn't have to take those flights, but they did, their choice. That flight after flight was delayed was certainly not the travel agent's fault.

NFL said themselves that it was a big risk, they admitted knowing that connecting flights is never a good idea on The Amazing Race, let alone two connecting flights. But they chose to do so anyway.

So, if you must place blame, the blame lies with the team that knew they were doing something highly risky.

The travel agent felt so bad about the screw up that SHE created, that she actually phoned them at the airport, to try and fix her mistake.

That ululation of the cousins reminds me of Midnight Express and 9/11, too. I don't have good associations with those sounds, and since this season is already filmed, the guys won't see themselves on air and maybe dial it back a bit.

However, them being college-eduated Americans, they should know how something like that could be perceived by the viewing audience.

And, of course, it's the producers who choose to include it, so what the hell do I know?

How is this the worst cast? It's a group of big personalities who started fighting on the first leg of the race. That's fantastic. The last couple seasons were mostly boring.

I LOVE that the female doctor is going to go toe-to-toe with Jersey girl next episode. The Jersey couple is supposed to give 1 of the express passes away-does anyone know if there's a time limit for them to do it? How long can they hold on to it?

I can't stand Jersey girl but she makes for great tv. I'm waiting for the Boston alpha couple to get into a fight with the Jersey couple. If both survive the next few legs, it's bound to happen.

I want the OK farmers and the Cali hippies to lose next because they seem relatively boring.

They may or may not have to go back for the clue. The team who was penalized on a past TAR for going to the pitstop without a clue had missed the clue box location entirely. On a really early TAR, a team lost the clue but were still allowed to check in. This is somewhere in between. They did find the clue but left part of it behind.

So I turn mine on and off depending who I watch. Joey is one I don't watch ads for. Some people on YT are actually creative and hardworking, but Joey isn't one of them. He's also become more and more of an entitled asshole the past few months.

On Sunday CBS saw delays in a number of markets on the East Coast due to NFL overruns. So, with that tentative ratings knowledge in mind and the combo of MBL and NFL on Fox and NBC, 60 Minutes (1.5/4)and The Amazing Race (1.7/4) were down. The reality show fell 11% to a series low.

by Anonymousreply 30210/28/2013

I expect the ratings to fall even more now that the Beards out of it. They turned out to be one of the most fun teams from all seasons. I'm going to miss them.

Way too much drama with the girls's polka costume from that guy. His partner should have whispered "1 million dollars" into his ear at some point.

Loved seeing the two big guys enjoying a polka moment at that enormous apartment house. Before the dancing, Tim said to Jason: "You look hot..what's your name?" And a-one and a-two..

The Beards were repulsive looking, though. They're one of the reasons I checked out of watching this in the first place. That and the other teams are boring. Nobody comes close to the entertainment value of the Chippendales, the Globetrotters, etc.

Of the seven teams left I think we can rule out Tim and Marie as the winners, since they are apparently on the next all-star season. Why race again so soon after winning?

The biggest surprise was the Okie boys u-turning the Afghanimals when they didn't even need to. Hopefully that will result in a feud between the 2 teams.

I'm glad the hippie Cali beards are GONE. They were nice but so fucking boring, not to mention repulsive-looking.

Pinky's piece was embarrassed by what she did, taxiwise. He is too cowed by her to try to sway her from being Pinky. He needs to sack up. Prepare to have your asses kicked because you have pissed off your ex-friends.

The taxi drama was strange. In a way I understood Pinky's reasoning... no backpacks = unclaimed taxi... so win the race or go for drinks after the show?

The taxi driver took out the backpacks, which suggests that at that point it's anyone's taxi. Why would he do that, and then later say "Oh my. I'm driving the wrong team. You're not my team." Why would he remove the backpacks if he wanted to be sure of keeping his taxi reserved for the backpack's owners?

Sure, it's taboo to hijack another team's taxi, but the taxi driver sent a message by removing the backpacks: "First come, first served."

I think there's a rule that one team cannot touch another team's backpacks. And apparently when the Baseball Wives were trying to get a taxi and saw the J/A's packs in the taxi, they implied as much to the driver. So the driver removed the bags hoping to attract another team.

If he felt like he should do a musical challenge (because he actually sings & plays instruments) then he should have taken it. The whole blaming her and "she'll just have to live with it" might have scored him passive aggressive points, but it nearly cost them the race.

And as awful as Pinky is, demanding that her butt boy do it because he knows more about music than she does was the sound decision.

I actually don't have any problem with female ER doc looking at what another contestant was's within the rules. Hypocritical, yes.

Still hoping Jason & Amy can keep it together. I was very surprised that a beauty pageant contestant was so damn nice to a competitor.

Nicole got mad at the kid judges because they laughed the first time she presented her musical instrument. I thought it was hilarious when the judges gave enthusiastic cheers to all the others who completed their task, but when Nicole finally got it right, the kids barely cheered at all.

by Anonymousreply 44111/25/2013

Eh, Nicole sucked hard at that challenge. It was irritating to her husband and he took it far too seriously. It's not always "abuse" (shriek, clutch) when a couple fights and it's hysterical to think so. She's an educated woman with options. I'm not worried about her.

Anyway - fuck both of their hallelujah asses. I am especially disgusted with people of science who still blow hard for Jebus.

Yeah, the whole sanctimonious Jeebus thing really put me off the doctors. I had been warming up to them but that killed it.

Pinky's outburst in the taxi was that of a truly disturbed person.

So, she's tired of him shouting her down until she submits to him so that he can always get his way. She's tired of being victimized by his aggressiveness.

You guys don't really understand how relationships work. Sure, it's nice when people are nice or have a fun chemistry that is engaging to others. But the alchemy is that Marie is working out her unresolved issues with her father while Tim is working out his unresolved issues with his mother and together they will help each other work through these things, Marie will soften and Tim will grow a pair and they will both grow and mature together. That's how relationships work - by accepting each other. They have the required stickiness between them.

It's not that Marie doesn't love Tim. She obviously pays attention and knows a lot about him. Their best moments were when she called back to his burgeoning musical talents - singing, piano and guitar playing - and said, "You should do this." And he trusted her and in his own words "smashed" it. She recognised his potential to achieve and he fulfilled it.

You guys deal too much with the surface of things. There's always more going on underneath. This race will bond them together. Wait until the either win or our eliminated - then they will have to define their relationship for themselves. She wants him to say "I love you despite your faults," she wants him to take care of her and when he proves he can, she will soften. I'll bet any money her father abandoned her and her mother.

On another note, Amy was stupid to help Nicole. It's a race. It will come back to haunt her.

Thank you, R461, I wanted to punch Phony Dr. Phil-ina (aka R453) in the face.

She doesn't even realize that Pinky and the No Brain broke up years ago and are NOT in a romantic relationship. They are toxic to each other. The qualities that are pushing them through each leg of this television show are the same qualities that are total relationship killers outside of this game.

Why is Barbara Bush's Beautiful Mind even reading this thread @457? It's too ~trifling~ for her towering intellect.

During the first two episodes of the season I didn't think much of Travis and Nicole. I thought Travis boring, and Nicole a shrew. Then they grew on me a lot. After these last two episodes, I'm starting to root against Travis and Nicole again- first the sanctimonious attitude towards Leo and Jamal for U-turning the Beards and not owning up to it. Now Nicole was a hypocrite by trying to cheat during the roadblock. Travis and Nicole have seemed to be getting a winners edit, but I hope that is misdirection.

Does anyone agree with me that Travis and Nicole should give Jason and Amy their express pass? I'm sure that if Travis/Nicole would have been eliminated if Amy had not helped Nicole.

I don't think they'll win. What I love about TAR vs Survivor is that Survivor really gives the fundie hypocrites a platform to spew their bullshit, thanks to Mark Burnett and Miss Probst.

On the other hand, TAR has always been a little bit cheeky in it's editing, and they REALLY didn't go for all the religious bs posturing, and went out of their way to illustrate the hypocrisy of the "very religious" Travis and Nicole.

The best part? SERVING up a nice slice of humble pie to the two doctors. And it was DEEEEEE-LICIOUS!

The only ones left who deserve to win are Amy and Jason and the Afghanimals. Both teams are decent people who are enjoying the race, as opposed to miserable New Jersey and doctors.

Sad to see the blondies go, because they seemed sweet and also took in the whole experience.
