The Amazing Race 10 - A Review

First of all, PROPS to you, CBS, for keeping this a total secret. I had commented a few weeks ago to my sister that I hadn't heard a thing about TAR and then ... BOOM! There it is. Awesome.

Ok. My feelings on the contestants:

Bilal and Sa'eed: Dudes, you were RIPPED OFF! I would ask for my money back. I would have liked to see them get farther in the competition. I don't think I was the only one.

Duke and Lauren: Duke, it appears that you are the oldest one on this race. Have fun. Lauren ... when your dad kissed you on the cheek, don't rub it off on national television. You might not play for that team, but dude... he's your DAD!

Dustin and Kandice: People look at you because you are flipping BEAUTY queens, not because they know you are tourists.

Erwin and Godwin: Ask your parents to re-name you. But you are mighty cute.

Kellie and Jamie: Way to get the gay guys to cheer with you. You are TRUE cheerleaders, ladies.

Lyn and Carlyn: Props to ya, mamas ... but who has your kids?

Peter and Sarah: Ok... Ace is calling TAR10 Peter: Gaywatch. Sarah. I think I would look for a new man. Any man who says he is going to cry when you reach the top of the wall climbing challenge, and then says he better do a good job or he is going to look like a "dingaling." Ummmm... yeah.

Rob and Kimberly: They fulfill the "couple who can't stand each other 99 percent of the Race, but during that 1 percent, they are sickening sweet with one another, calling each pet names like "honey bear" and "pookie."" So you ... you are just fulfilling the quota.

Tom and Terry: Girlfriends, you all will be a HOOT to watch. And thank you to Tom for giving us the "gay scream" when you started to smash into that wall.

Tyler and James: Ok ... they are really good to look at, AND they have personalities. So one of my faves.

Vipul and Arti: Nah nah nah nah... nah nah nah nah.... hey hey ... GOODBYE!

And last but certainly not least, the hometown team of David and Mary: You all ... they met at McDonalds, and SHE was afraid that HE didn't like her. They came from the hollers of Eastern Kentucky, and I will have a special place in my heart for them. However, I do have to admit that when David was leaning over the wall to give Mary pointers on how to climb successfully, I flashed back to Pete from O Brother, Where Art Thou? telling Delmar and Everett in the movie theater: DO NOT SEEK THE TREASURE! Actually, a lot about them reminds me of that movie.

This should be a good season. Hey ... it is always a good season when I get to look at Phil for an hour every week.

Love your analysis -- too funny;) I watched it by accident tonight. Love the show, but I never know what's going on with TV in general. We were lucky - our reception on this station is multicolored snow, so we pretty much saw everything.

I was impressed with the woman with a prosthetic leg. I couldn't believe she made it to the top of that wall. That couple seems very competetive in this race.

I forgot to set the Tivo and missed the first hour. We were out running errands. Thankfully we can get the audio of that channel on our radio, and The Hubster had been listening to the news the night before or I would have missed it completely.

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
