The Amazing Race 7

I'm not a big TV watcher, but I have managed to catch a few episodes of this show lately, and I have to say that I'm getting a bit hooked because I don't want the jerk team to win. I won't say I hate them, because I really don't know them, and no doubt things are edited to show them in an even LESS than favourable light (because we all like having bad guys around in things like this), but seriously...I hope they lose. They have no class.

So, votey thing..which team do you want to win...or think will win?

check out the website "Television without Pity", it does recaps, has forums and is a lot of fun

so fans of various shows can go on and on about them

You know what would be cool? Have couples representing different races, you know, caucasian, east asian, african, etc. Make them compete to see which race will be crowned the "amazing race" for that particular year.

i want rob and amber to win. while rob is a bit of an ass and has been one since "survivor", they are the best team. i love it that they never ever say mean things to each other. they are always supportive and understanding. they play hard and arent above trying to cheat a bit, but they are a solid team who obviously love each other

my second fav is the black couple. when she was willing to shave her head, i was impressed. last night they really kicked ass. the sacrifice that the wife made changed their effort level. the husband went up that rope ladder like it was the easiest thing ever. and they too seldom are mean to each other. they arent as sharp as rob and amber but i wouldnt be upset if they win.

and when im as old as the old couple i hope i have tht much energy and drive. they just keep going no matter how many stupid mistakes they make.

the last couple--the pow and beauty queen--are good competitors but i dont think they are very well matched. perhaps after this ordeal they will settle down and appreciate each other more.

Its like I'd like Meredith and Gretchen to win, but I dont see that happening if their is a footrace. I hope Rob and Amber don't win, they're so rude to everyone and got this "we're the All American Couple" thing goin on that makes them so stupid. they make me want to puke.

Rob and Amber are just cut throat. I suppose they figure that gives them an edge, but I hope it backfires like it did last night when Rob tried to screw with the other team's minds about and earlier flight, spurring them to actually FIND an earlier flight.

I think Uchenna and Joyce, Meredith and Gretchen have proven that you can play the game with class, help out each other and still remain competitive. In the end, I don't think the older couple will be able to keep up, but they've been playing well, and have never had to be underhanded to get ahead. To me, this race is about certain values. Cut throat underhanded and sneaky versus honest, helpful and caring.
