As one who is not only a fan, but someone who would give his right arm to be on The Amazing Race, a question occurred to me about the racers and their travelling times and 12 hour rest periods?
Driving home from work early one morning (1:00 am to be specific), I felt myself dozing, so I turned up the radio that was already on. This leads me to my question. Are the racers aloud to bring with them CD's and/or MP3 players to listen to while driving, flying, or just chilling after the leg ends? It would seem to me that they could, as long as their were no internet access or GPS services with the device. And, of course, I am sure thatthey have shown the contestants wearing earphones before. I just don't recall it. And, I can't see the producers saying no to CD's in the car, especially if it is nighttime driving and you need something to keep you awake and focused on the road.
As always, thabks for the answers and for all your detective skills. You help make the show even more enjoyable (If that's possible).
One other thing...where can I find seasons 3, 4 and 5?
