  • 'The Amazing Race' Season 10

    The 4-time Emmy Award winning series returns tonight:

    The Amazing Race (CBS, Sunday, 8:30 ET/PT), which kicks off a new season with a 90-minute special that just may be the show's best start yet. This time, the 12 teams gather in Seattle and head immediately to Beijing, where architectural glories and a few new game surprises await.

    Race's value as a visually splendid travelogue can't be underestimated, particularly when it has the splendors of Beijing to display. But the show rises and falls on its players, and these 24 racers appear to be particularly strong and admirably diverse, as the Race has been since its inception. Though favorites will emerge and change, in the early going I'm rooting for Mary, the feisty, friendly wife of a Kentucky coal miner, who compares landing in China to "dropping a 30-year-old baby in the world and telling him, 'Just go.' " You go, Mary.

        can't wait for the new season. I've heard that this season has some of the best teams yet.
        Well, I think you're crazy, I think you're crazy, I think you're crazy, just like me.

              Well hello Tyler and James! haha. I hope they are cooler and nicer than the last season's frat boys.

              I like the Alabama moms. They've got spunk. Although I don't know how long they will last.

              I also like the brothers, the asian guys. Sorry I don't know names yet.
              The father-daughter team seems promising.
              The Kentucky couple and the other arguing couple are going to get on my nerves.

              And we've got Beauty Queens AND Cheerleaders. Heaven help us. But I thought it was very comical when the Gay couple was cheering behind the cheer leaders. I love gay men!

              Good show tonight.
              Well, I think you're crazy, I think you're crazy, I think you're crazy, just like me.

                Kentucky must be very proud!

                Gotta love the Los Angeles models, better in Bejing than waiting tables.

                And how about Miss California and Miss New York?! The rap world can learn alot from these two steely super-smiley blondes putting their cultural differences aside to push on relatively effortlessly.

                  I thought it was an interesting start, especially that elimination out of no where. I felt really bad for those guys.

                  I think the father-daughter team will go far. I did like the boyfriends, they were hilarious. I'd want to be on there team because it looks like it would be more fun.

                    Well I did watch it, I was actually amazed that some of the teams even made it up the wall. Love some of the teams, can not stand the cheerleaders....sorry but they are really annoying with all of the cheering and clapping. Is it too early to pick the winners? )

                      I hope this isn't the last season. I've finally gotten Vic to agree to apply to participate in the next season!

                          Oh. My. GAWD. If the cheerleaders mention that they are cheerleaders one more time, I'll have to stop watching the show. Seriously.

                          I missed the first fifteen minutes (couldn't tear myself away from an epi of Nip/Tuck, where NO ONE mentions that they are cheerleaders), but my husband said they managed to say the word "cheerleader" about two times before I even got in the room.

                          :bash:

                          Okay, and the word coalminer...when I read that on screen, I'm pronouncing it like it's French-- co-al-minyea-- every single time. Like he's a sommelier, or something? I don't know. He's a coal miner. I know that, but seeing the word on screen, and each time, I read it incorrectly. We were dying laughing.

                          I don't really like any of the teams. The gay guys stood out to me as sweet so far, the brothers, I thought were funny. But I'm not rooting for anyone in particular yet.

                            I was kinda rooting for the couple that got the boot, so... I do like the brothers and that's about it right now. I kinda like the male models a little bit. For some reason, the gay guys just rubbed me wrong right off the bat. Although, I cracked up when they were cheering along with the cheerleaders. Whether they were making fun of them or not, that was funny stuff!

                              I think the line of the night went to the woman from Kentucky (about meeting her husband) "I wanted to talk to him because he was so cute but I was scared because I'm just normal."

                              I am curious if Sarah will be allowed/will find a way to have her prosthetic fixed so it's not leaking hydraulic fluid. It could be even harder for her if it isn't working properly.

                              Duke and Lauren seem very strong - if they keep it together emotionally. And I had a pageant competing friend who told me that those girls are very competitive - so I think they will prove to be a threat! I am already sick of the single moms whining and the balding gay guy just rubs me the wrong way.

                                I'm not sure if I like her. I don't like the way she's working the whole prosthetic leg thing. (I know, that sounds terrible, but hear me out.) She can't be both pre-boarding the plane and then complaining that the challenges are too hard. The fact that she is playing it both ways is not cool. I'm totally amazed at all she's has done in her life, so I guess I just want to see her be a total bad a$$ and play hard and stay ahead.

                                Does that make sense? I hope so, cause I don't want to offend anyone by that.

                                  I wondered about her preboarding the plane and the other contestants complaining about it. But, I noticed when the other teams were shown boarding, they were walking past perfectly empty seats on the plane, which leads me to believe they had assigned seating. Thus, boarding early did nothing for that team except give them more time to sit and wait for takeoff. If it had been first come, first park your butt, then they'd have the advantage of ensuring they were right at the front of the plane and thus, first to exit and get going at their destination. I'm kind of impressed that she made it up that wall, and her man sure is supportive of her, but I'm not sure I liked them still.

                                  Of course, I always pick early favorites and then end up changing my mind every week for the first few weeks, anyway. :lol:

                                    I love watching this show, any maybe it's my cynical mind working, but did anyone else notice during the intro part that they have guys working out, etc. and the gay guys getting manicures? The other thing I noticed is that they kept showing the first pair that was eliminated practicing Islam. I know that happened, but it seems they edited their part to focus primarily on that. My cynical mind is now waiting for some Christian televangelist to start in on how if they'd turned to Jesus before the race started, they might still be in it.

                                      They do keep picking stereotypical gay guys for the show, and that bugs me too.

                                        I was impressed that there seemed to be a bit more diversity (without splitting people in segregated groups, Survivor) and then two of the diverse teams go home in the first episode. Bummer! I really liked the East Indian couple too. They seemed really sweet and supportive of each other. They got lost a lot though. Did the Cho Brothers call them Team Karma as they were leaving the brick challenge? Or was I just hearing things?

                                        So far, the father/daughter team seems interesting and maybe the single moms. I can't tell for sure though. I usually have to watch a few episodes before I really cement who I like. I can usually tell who I will hate right off the bat though...cheerleaders! Oy! But I was surprisingly not as bugged by the Miss Americas. They seemed to kick butt and not be snobby about things. We'll see how that plays out.

                                        The models...*yawn* I am SO tired of these types of guys being on EVERY show. Boring.

                                        And the Cho Brothers (Or is it just Cho Bros, as it said on the back their shirts?), how STUPID are you to bring water guns into an airport? Just...wow.
