Is it me, or are there not that many teams that you can really care about.
Anne-Marie and Tracy are the absolute bright sparks in the whole show. Their personalities are infectious and I couldn't help smile everytime they were on camera. It didn't hurt that the funniest moment on the whole show was Anne-marie's ever so graceful departure from the boat...priceless! When I look at these girls I see two people who adore the Amazing Race and are overjoyed at being part of it, how wonderful for them.
Apart from them, and maybe Mo and Mos, I pretty much found everyone else annoyingly aggravating, and so unsympathetic that I can't imagine rooting for any of them.
Richard and Joey...okay don't get me started on Richard and Joey, hang on, I'm starting. Everytime Joey made a suggestion on how to do something, the over-enthusiastic gushing from Richard to her made me almost retch. BTW, one of her ingenious plans was to do with the soup they had to sell, which they had to charge 5,000 a bowl for, she said lets sell two for 10,000. WHAT! Richard thought this was gold! I think that was mere logic, and very mere at that. I think they may be idiot savants...minus the savants.
Ryot and Liberty are probably my second least fav team because...well have you watched them! Again with the soup challenge, Liberty got it into her head that their strong selling point would be to wrangle up prospective customers with not only a delicious soup but also the promise of one of her tantalising kisses. Sweet lordy! Let me just say, as a woman myself who will never strut the catwalks of Milan, I am absolutely stunned that they made it to the mat at all with that advertising scheme.
Alana and Mel. Mel ran away from her family at some point and I was wondering if there was any chance she could do it again.
Matt and Tom. The cowboys (do we have cowboys in Australia?) may be alright and I will probably get to like them at some stage, that is if I could ever understand what Matt said. Two words: Sub Titles!
All the other teams are the bland stereotypical play it safe types...totally forgettable.
Next time I hope the producers take note of the kind of people who stand out from the other Amazing Races in the world, such as: Kynt (Kent) and Vyxsin, Margie and Luke, Oswald and Danny, BJ and Tyler (hippies), the Globetrotters, Marc and Rovilson (Asia), Tina and Kenny, the Guidos, Adrian and Collin (Asia), Joyce and Uchenna, Nick and Starr, Ron and Christina, Victoria and Jonathan. Absolutely memorable stars, with personalities!
After all that I still can't wait to watch the next episode
