Storming the Battlements: Quick Thoughts on Season Seventeen of The Amazing Race
Written by Jace | Friday, September 24, 2010 |

By now, we've all seen the watermelon-to-the-face viral video making the rounds the last few weeks, but the season opener of CBS' The Amazing Race is far more than just than cringe-inducing moment of pain.

In fact, the opener to the seventeenth (!!!) season of The Amazing Race ("They Don't Call It the Amazing Race for Nothin'!") might just go down as one of the series' all-time bests, sending the contestants across the pond to England, where they're forced to contend with scaling the walls of a castle, learning the definition of "battlements," discovering what Stonehenge is, and performing a rather difficult balancing act. That is, when they're not getting hopelessly lost driving on the left side of the road, as happens to more than just one hopeful team.

As with all great seasons, the success or failure of an individual reality competition cycle rests pretty squarely on the casting and I have to say that they've more than come through with the cast of this cycle of TAR. Ivy League a cappela singers, home shopping network mavens, beach volleyball partners, doctors, a biological mother and the daughter she gave up for adoption, plus the usual assortment of best friends, romantic couples, and family members.

Plus, what might just be the dumbest team ever to race for a million dollars. I'll let you discover just which team this might be as they deliver some absolutely hysterical corkers in this first episode alone. And a new twist that's mentioned at the start that could have some real consequences on the race ahead, as well as a major advantage for whichever team manages to snag this first-time game-changer.

But, ultimately, it's another season of fun challenges, tense team members, beautiful sights and sounds, and a heart-pumping race to the finish line. Not to mention a swiftly raised eyebrow from host Phil Keoghan.

I'm guessing it's Ron & Tony who are the dumbest team ever -- and that's why they're the first team out.

A clue, perhaps? I'm probably drawing a pretty long bow here, but meh.

The portion of the article outlined in red above makes me think that the "dumbest team ever" survives this first leg.

Usually teams labeled as "dumb" tend to be either athletic or lucky enough to offset their disadvantage
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

It says "first episode alone " So, that means they must make it past episode one.

Ron and Tony were not dumb, but Tony had zero map-reading skills. He just sat in the back seat with the map in his lap never trying to use it.

Now, the actual hysterical corker I heard last night was by Vicki, who in response to a question from Phil on what country they were in answered "The Country of London." Vicki was extremely impressive minutes earlier going hand-over-hand upside down in the boat.

Mallory had what I can only describe as a "Small things amuse small minds" moment when she stated "I wish I could juggle on a ball"

It would be interesting to re-poll readers for the dumbest team ever now that we have seem the first episode.

I hope she keeps her sunshine spirit. Was it just me, or was there lots of good sportsmanship and positiveness in this episode? Even Chad admitting the leg was humbling made me feel different from the previous times where teams were just shouting and bickering, I found this premiere to be particularly "happy".
