The first time an Amazing Race shows skydiving it's a novelty. the 10th time it is just plain boring. I suspect that the reason it is so popular with World Race Productions is that tandem skydives are relatively inexpensive compared to other types of tasks. Perhaps around 2005, the last time I had a market price check, $100 was a reasonable amount in the U.S. to pay. Overseas, it should be less. Only one checkin attendant is needed and someone has to put into place the transportation system for after regaining the ground.
