Okay, so I quit writing about the Amazing Race. Why? I admit it. I simply got pissed off when Margie and Luke got eliminated. I stopped watching it. I was in a huff.
Recently, however, I came out of my little (little?) strop and binged on all of the episodes I hadn’t watched.
It’s funny how every Season 14er was either one of the first teams to go, or the winner. I’ve got to say, as far as “Unfinished Business” goes, I think Kisha and Jen (especially Jen) finally got to finish their business. Their consistency made them a very deserving team, and although I was desperately supporting Gary and Mallory, I’m glad to see these girls take the title.
I also seem to hold grudges for far longer than I ever expected I would. I still could not be happy that Flight Time and Big Easy made it to the final. I had hoped they’d crash out in 4th place. Again. But the made it to an admirable second place finish, trumping Gary and Mallory. Maybe yet we will have a parent/child combo win the race!
And so, to satisfy my addiction for the race I’m now following the Australian rendition, which I’m glad to see hasn’t been stuck in it’s origin country like I feared it might. I can’t imagine what the British would do should they ever make a version of the Race. On one hand, I’d want to enter instantly, on the other, I’d very much like to tell the producers how it should be done.
Another Race over and I already look forward to Season 19 for a host of fresh faces and amazing locations. What will I ever do if the Race is cut?!
