It was a blah episode until the end. This cast is better than the gimmicky blind date or social media “star” seasons, but some of the challenges are still weak.

What’s the point of doing the yield when no one uses it? They go in a pack to the church and grab the gold or emerald- boring to watch. The go to the square and hand the gold and emeralds to a person, receiving the clue without any sort of challenge- boring to watch. The circus had potential, but all but one aced it with ease. Again, a fun environment squandered.

The last challenge was classic read the clue carefully stuff. There’s a clear set of tiers between the good teams and the bad teams. Oh, and the gays are a complete embarrassment. I could even take Tyler Oakley over these two.

I liked the self proclaimed "Cajun Asians". The show needs to make the race tighter, where more teams are competing at the same detour or road block together. Not only does it add to the pressure, but also allows for more confrontation between teams. The show needs bitchy players to create drama.

CBS was supposed to run back-to-back episodes two weeks ago, but had to change their plans when they decided to run an election special (it was the day after the election.) So the schedule got shifted and they ran two this week to keep on track. Canada is supposed to get the Kazakhstan episode next week. That's unfortunate because unless they run two in a row, you'll always be a week behind.

by Anonymousreply 136November 20, 2020 1:15 AM

No, R135, they still do that. In fact, they just did in the latest episode. The girls had to do that task of applying fake facial hair that the others didn't. I can't remember what they did the first time but they had something then as well. It just used to be a harder extra task than it is any more. It's ALL better than the early days when they had to lose all of their money and then beg for money from the locals and tourists. I HATED that.

Holy shit, I just got a WARNING and my post removed on the Primetimer Forums because I referred to Will and James as insipid queens on that site. And before that, someone had bitched about me calling them Will and Grace. Apparently, we can no longer speak ill of gay Racers? I'm not torn up about it, I'm just surprised that a something inoffensive as insipid queens was enough for post removal. This is the site that used to go by Television Without Pity way back when BTW.

So expressing any irritation or distaste for Will and James is now prohibited. That's quite a leap from finding two gays annoying to being accused of hating all gay men.

I too liked the blondes by the end. They really were all alone out there. (DeAngelo referred to them as “cockroaches” too.)

They took it all in stride and laughed and smiled through it. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m sorry to see them go.

The gays are beyond atrocious. The alliance is a disaster for the show. When James saw the ruler and told the camera he was going to keep this to himself, the one volleyball brother immediately came over and warned him about the ruler. Gary and DeAngelo may not have contributed much to the alliance, but the gays are two-faced.

The Indian siblings are dull.

The locations and challenges are mostly been a vast improvement over the most recent seasons, and even the casting on face value was better. The alliance killed any excitement though and the boyfriends are an embarrassment for our kind.

Yeah, the alliance is a bore, but it wasn't the first time it's been used. Usually, these multi-team alliances fall through quickly and are tenuous at best. It was surprising to see this one last as long as it did.

People saying teams should yield stronger teams don't get it.

If you push the NFL team back 20 minutes they might go from being in 2nd to being in 3rd. All you'll have done is piss them off.

You need to yield a team at the back of the pack to ensure they don't catch up and pass the last team. You want to increase the likelihood that the last team stays last. That's why you yield the Blondies.

R197, In the earlier seasons, teams made their way to an airport and had to arrange their own routing to the next city. The earlier teams often were able to book better routes, that may or may not have worked out depending on unforeseen delays. It added a degree of uncertainty and suspense. Now, they may as well just shuttle them from place to place. It is now less a “race” and more a series of tasks that are held at different places around the world.

After Season 31 completed filming in July 2018, The Amazing Race 32 began on November 10, 2018 with filming of first leg reported on the island of Tobago, marking the first time The Amazing Race visited Trinidad and Tobago. Teams were spotted fishing in the Nylon Pool, played the steelpan at Pigeon Point, and participated in goat racing at the Buccoo Integrated Facility.[1] The season concluded filming on December 3, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana,[2] which had previously only hosted a Pit Stop during the Family Edition back in 2005.[7] According to Phil Keoghan, this season was the most physically demanding to film since The Amazing Race 3.[8] The show also reached a milestone of traveling one million cumulative miles during this season.[9]

CBS announced on May 15, 2019, while Season 31 was airing, that the season would be broadcast in the mid-2019–20 television season.[10] In January 2020, Amazing Race co-creators and executive producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri believed that the season would air within six months.[11] On April 13, 2020, CBS originally announced that the season was to premiere with a two-hour special on May 20, 2020, taking over the Wednesday slot of Survivor: Winners at War. Following this, the show would have returned to the standard one-hour episode format.[12] However, on April 29, 2020, CBS announced it was postponing the premiere until later in 2020, and the freshman game show Game On! would be taking show's former scheduled slot.[13] The postponement was designed in case the 2020–21 television season was delayed as television production was suspended following the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing pre-filmed Amazing Race to replace shows whose production has not begun.[14] This includes Survivor, which was unable to film its 41st season in time for the fall broadcast due to complications filming during the pandemic, causing CBS to subsequently schedule The Amazing Race 32 in Survivor's planned slot on Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. as its replacement.[15] At twenty-two months, The Amazing Race 32 has the longest gap between its filming completion and its premiere (for comparison, Season 31 premiered 10 months after its filming in June and July 2018).[16] Outside of a message from Keoghan at the start of the first episode describing the timing of filming of this season relative to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season made no other changes or mention of the pandemic, as Keoghan explained they want to keep the show evergreen.[17]

It is weird how they all gang up on weaker teams, instead of trying to eliminate threats down the road.

They may present it as short-term strategy, but it reeks of high school snobbism. "You are not one of us."

So once again with last night's episode, all of the teams started out on the same flight, then the u-turns allowed a team to be selectively picked off by the "alliance" (though it didn't go down exactly as planned when the footballers reached the u-turn first). With what will be the lingering effects of the pandemic and how tired this show has become, I think this will be the last season. It will be months before another season could be filmed, then CBS would hold it for a year or more, something which it has been doing for the last few seasons. At best, it would be a couple of years before another season would air, by which time we will all have forgotten about it.

This current season, #32, was completed in December 2018, but didn't begin airing until October 2020. Season 31 finished in July 2018, but wasn't aired until June 2019. Season 30 was better, with only a four month delay. It's as though CBS has been losing confidence in the show and just resorts to "dumping" them when they have an opening in their schedule.

The places they visit are great for armchair travelers (like most everybody is nowadays anyway). Plus there are usually some nice teams to root for, and while there are usually some unlikable teams, they usually don't all clique up and get rid of weak teams. Usually they get rid of strong teams.

I actually think this is the best cast season of the show in its history. I like every team so each losing team was a loss to the show. Usually, half the teams are so hateful and annoying, with bickering and pouting, that I cheer when they lose. Don't we have enough cunts on reality TV? I like that every team this season was enjoyable to watch; it made rooting for anyone so far very hard because I don't want any of them to lose. That, I think, is more compelling than the usual season full of assholes. Comparing this to the Family season? Are you joking or did you forget how bad that season was? Some of you seem to like to complain just for the sake of it. This isn't anywhere near the worst season. And certainly nowhere near as bad as that obnoxious family edition season.

I honestly don't know how some of you people make it through the day. Take the commercials out that leaves about 45 minutes, divide that by the 5 teams left that means each team is on for roughly 9 minutes each. If you can't tolerate a team you don't like for 9 minutes in a couple of minute segments you are just too fragile to exist.

That's why they shouldn't have contestants who are rich and who like him said he could visit all the places on the race on his own dime easily.

On the other hand, Amazing Race, unlike Survivor and Big Brother, is not supposed to be a social game, and there shouldn't be alliances. Phil's admonition to all of them at the beginning of the episode to not to help each other anymore for their own sake makes me think they may add a rule that teams cannot help each other. It would be the same as the rule not allowing a teammate to tell the other teammate how to do a challenge when only one of them is doing it. Viewers are going to want a fair fight.

It came off worse now though with so much international travel shut down due to Covid. He could appreciate the privilege and opportunity he was given. Sad because I was feeling sorry for them that they were being excluded, but maybe the other teams say this in them as well and that’s why they got left out.

Especially since some of the worst players (and not famous ones) in today's leagues get more money than some of the best and most famous players from years ago. DeAngelo said he could afford to take the trip he had just undertaken by himself. He couldn't understand the journey itself and not the goal is sometimes the prize. (Ok, a million bucks is great, but most other teams who have lasted a while before getting eliminated still have usually appreciated seeing some great places and bonding with their teammates, at least). He was rather disgraceful frankly.

This is exactly why, unless the rules are changed, I won't be watching another season of this show (assuming there even is another one). When you have teams working together to eliminate others (with the help of numerous Yields), it becomes as tedious as Survivor (which I haven't watched in years). You end up with the first two or three episodes where teams are working separately, then the middle four to ten episodes as you watch an "alliance" work to pick the others off, then the final episode (if you're still watching) to see who wins. ***Yawn***

D'Angelo gained a lot of attention and fans during TAR.....and he lost most of them for his sour grapes final tantrum.

Phil gave him every opportunity to say something else or to temper his comments, but he did not. He is as big an ass as he seemed to be on the final few minutes of the show.

Who the fuck cares that he didn't get to see the sites? Did he go out and visit every city he played his stupid childish football game in - or did he stay in the hotel until time to go to the field....and return to it until time to go to the airport? My guess is he did NOT "see the sites."

Gary is running interference for him again. He needs to stop.

And D'Angelo didn't think the alliance was so bad when it was benefiting his ass and tromping on other players......

The finale was underwhelming not because the boyfriends won but because the challenges left no chance for the others to catchup. Half way through the episode, it was clear that the gays would win. No suspense!!. I liked the Cody and Jessica season where they won at the last challenge.

The gays had of course been Mardi gras so they new where the Armstrong thingy was. The twink even knew what the baby doll looked like so they generally had an advantage over the others.

It's been a broken show for 10+ seasons now. There is no "race" anymore, just a reality show with people who are not always very likable. Good on Fred Armisen and Will -- I guess the alliance thing paid off after all -- but his was the only leg where no one had a chance to catch up after being bunched because the "challenges" were so straightforward. I'm officially over the show because it's missing what I originally loved so much about it.

I miss the airport strategizing. My favorite was when they would have teams all taking ridiculous connections to get some distant place and so you have teams with layovers in Ireland and others in Dubai and others stranded somewhere. It seems like all the flights are just prebooked now which neutralizes everything way too often. I loved the route planning. And it doesn't seem like they do a strict 12 hours from when you check in until the next leg anymore either.

Whatever, I'll still watch but it doesn't interest me nearly as much as it once did. Eswar and Leo were definitely hot and neither is my usual type, so that was fun. Didn't Tyler and Korey win one of their seasons? The gays are often very competent on this show whether or not they're likable.

That finale sucked, and not because Will & James won. The brothers fell behind quickly, and although, for a brief time, they were all digging through the king cakes together, it was clear they never had a chance of gaining ground.

After Will & James left for the bridge, I don’t think either of the teams even laid eyes on them. There was nothing the editors could do. Who wants to watch a race for second place, and even that wasn’t close.

The final challenge with the globe was stupid. There needed to be a memory element to it, like now that the globe is built, attach numbers to the map in order of the pit stops on the race. Also match the currency/language/something with the location. I remember on past finales they had to do stuff like that and it really took some attention to detail.

Will & James did what I would have done if selected to be on the race. They watched each season multiple times and studied what teams did wrong and right. They then created an alliance that helped them get to the end. It’s smart play, but it doesn’t make for a very exciting experience for the viewer.

That’s not correct.It was evident that Will had a better strategy/technique to find the baby and that preserved their lead. If the other teams had done better and Will had done worse at the challenge, they could have finished first. Also, speaking of luck, the other two could have randomly picked the cake that had the baby and leapfrogged ahead. It wasn’t set in stone.

R441, I meant from an editing/confidence/lack of energy standpoint that the brothers never had a chance of overtaking them. That edit of them at the beginning jumping out of the cab at the wrong place and running around set the tone for their whole final leg. The writing was on the wall and it wasn’t subtle.

They seemed to be missing the spark they had throughout most of the race. It’s like watching a basketball or football game where one team goes down early and though it’s obviously possible for them to stage a comeback, the audience (and the team) just knows it’s not in the cards that day.

R434--I am watching old seasons on hulu. I also really miss the planning their own travel aspect of early seasons and I miss them having money to get them through the legs and financing being part of the strategy. When people had their cash taken as a penalty, it was pretty terrible, begging in countries where people are poor as hell. But those aspects are what made the race like real traveling. They don't seem to sleep outside in front of museums that are closed and so forth any more, either. Consolidating the travel for all the teams probably saves tons on production costs.

Looking back: there have been some HORRIBLE winners, the already mentioned Freddy and Kendra, that snotty bitch, were pretty awful, & Flo of Flo & Zach was a whiny jerk. Would you believe she dated Drew the twin for seven years after they raced? Worst contestants ever are Jonathan and Victoria, if only they'd been eliminated earlier.

by Anonymousreply 460December 18, 2020 6:52 AM

If you want to see THE AMAZING RACE in its "pure" form, you have to go back to the first 4 seasons. From booking their own flights to the appearance of Fast Forwards (remember them?) on almost every leg, those early races are rather AMAZING compared to the dumbed-down version we now have. (If you want to see just how intricate the Race could be, check out seasons 2 and 3, especially.)

Starting with Season 5, we had the introduction of the Yield, the non-elimination penalty (taking the team's money away), and the reduction of Fast Forwards to only 2 in the whole race. Even so, much of the flight arrangements were still left up to the teams -- enabling Colin & Christie to get so far ahead of the other teams that they were hit by a very suspicious site closure in Egypt. (The sign indicating the Hours of Operation looked like it had been scrawled in Magic Marker by some PA.)

Flight booking was never so free after that. Teams were limited in various ways: having to use specific travel agents with specific hours of operation; having only a few airlines available to book; or having the flights pre-selected. Same with bus or train travel. For awhile, the Race was able to disguise much of this behind-the-scenes manipulation. If they figured that a leg would probably end at 2 or 3 in the afternoon, they had no problem with teams leaving the pitstop at 2 or 3 in the morning, knowing that there was little they could do in the middle of the night. (Nowadays, however, they have even stopped using a strict 12-HOUR pitstop. We're never given arrival times and are just told that so-&-so are the first team to depart whenever. The length of the pitstop is obviously whatever is in the best interests of the production.)

As each leg is its own mini-race, doing well no longer carries any benefit moving forward.

Jonathan and Victoria!


I wanted to reach through the TV and yank Jonathan's scraggly hair and kick him in his nuts. What a spastic, abusive, ridiculous son-of-a-cunt.

I disliked - not hated - W&J the same way I dislike annoying young blonde teams. All histrionics. Everything is over the top and at a high pitch. Has nothing to do with them being gay, just annoying. I never liked the clowns either, and they were straight men. Danny and Oscar form season 2 were even femmier gays than W&J but I loved them.

[quote]Which season is the most exciting?

Season 2 had the most exciting finish. Literally a couple dozen yards separated the final teams at the finish line in San Francisco.

Season 2 also features a solid cast (including "villains" Wil & Tara and gay best friends Oswald & Danny) and a really interesting route (Brazil, South Africa, Namibia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Oceania, Hawaii, and Alaska).

I met the infamous Oswald once at TARcon. Danny and Oswald were the Will and James of their day:

Which season did one of the final teams never get out of Australia on the final leg?

Oswald was SO cute. And I thought Chip was quite good-looking as well. (Better than Reichen.)

Season 4. "Best Friends" David & Jeff were in first place leaving the pit stop in Queensland, but they ended up stuck in the airport in Sydney. They hadn't booked a connecting flight to Hawaii, thinking that they could get one upon arrival in Sydney. They were wrong. The other two teams -- Chip & Reichen and Jon & Kelly -- did not make the same mistake.

I never saw seasons 1 or 2, so I'm watching them on Hulu.

Season one is SO unpolished. No Phil at the mat, lots of focus on travel and airports, lots of "find x" instead of actual tasks. I feel like I'm getting to know the racers a lot better, but I like the current iteration more. There was so little urgency.

The boyfriends were so irritating. I wanted Hung and Chee to win.

What I really disliked about the episode though was the digging through the king cakes. It was so wasteful and a huge mess that someone had to clean up. Each person went through what, about 50 cakes? I hate throwing away food and to see it on display like this is really a shame.

Those looked like basic cinnamon swirl king cakes, which can be dryish. But king cakes come in many varieties. I've had fancy flavors: chocolate, cream cheese, Chantilly cream and berries, goat cheese and apples, orange, pecan and bourbon, pralines, fillings. These were all from bakeries. Last year we tried a coconut one from James Beard award winning bakery, Dong Phuong, which was delicious, but the wait in line was brutal, once was enough. I don't love the sprinkles on top or the frosting, I usually poke it off, however, Dong Phuong's frosting was different than other king cake frostings and tasted great..

TL;DR? Good king cake is very good, though the grocery store kinds can be a little blah.

They should've just put Chrissy at the end of the long tables and thrown the mushed up cake in her direction to keep the tables clean. Any missed plastic babies would join the rest of accidentally-consumed non food items shoved in a pocket at the bottom of her small intestine.

Homos are the least deserving winners, ever.

Listening to Gary & DeAngelo’s podcast, Will & James winning margin was about 3 hours over Hung & Chee, with the Beard Bros coming in 30 minutes later. And DeAngelo cried at Will & James’s proposal.

I want to watch a season with people who have never been overseas trying to cope - that would be entertaining.
