I have watched Amazing Race from the very beginning, the very first season. It is the most interesting and fun show on tv. You get to travel via strangers to parts of the world you might not ever get to see in person. That said, I am getting tired of having "celebrities" take the place of everyday people. I want to see people like me experience all that goes with The Amazing Race. Each season fewer and fewer unknowns are part of the group - and no, i've never tried out therefore never been rejected so no jealousy is involved. Maybe 1 team, but we've gotten to almost half now and a huge part of the enjoyment of the show is watching people you haven't already seen or heard about .
