Re: Amazing Race starts November 4th!!

One of my favorite shows, but it has been going downhill ever since the season with Chip/Kim.

Re: Amazing Race starts November 4th!!

I´ve never watched the Amazing Race before (though I am a huge fan of reality TV shows), and I don´t really have any idea how it works. I was reading the explanation on Wikipedia but it seemed so convoluted. Would anyone care to summarize briefly what this show is about? I mean, teams of two have to get to a certain destination, and they have challenges but how does it all work?

Never mind, I am reading the Wikipedia explanations and it's beginning to make sense.

That's pretty much it.

They have to get to check points (route markers). Each episode, they have to complete two challenges: a detour (choice between two tasks, each with their own pros and cons like Phil says) and a roadblock (One of two does it). At the end of each episode, the last team to get to the pit stop is eliminated. They start the next leg in the order they arrived at the pit stop, exactly 12 hours after they arrived.

They receive money at the start of each leg to pay for everything except airline tickets (they have a credit card for that).

When there are only three teams remaining, there's a final leg. The first team to arrive get a million bucks.

Thanks Do you guys know if the episodes will be put on CBS innertube, like for Survivor, and many other shows?

Yes, they start with a certain number (11 this season) of teams. Each team could be siblings, married couple, father/daughter or mother/son, dating couple, friends, or whatever.

Each episode covers about a 1-2 day period. In that period the teams leave the overnight point, get clues, and complete challenges, and finally arrive at the next pit stop (overnight point). The last team in to the pit stop is eliminated (unless, in a few times each race, it is a non-elimination round).

The challenges are two types, roadblock - where one member perfroms the challenge - and detour - where the team decides which one of two challenges to perform. In a detour, one of the choices requires slow and steady, and the other requires strength and speed. There is one roadblock and one detour in each episode.

Also there can be a fast forward - there are a few in each series - and the first team that finds it completes a different challenge then goes straight to the pit stop.

And there can be a yield - one team makes another team wait for a period of time before they can begin thier challenge.

The final team to the pit stop at the final episode is the winner.

I think they used to do it last year. Not sure about this season.

If you like it, try to get your hands on seasons 1-2-3-5. They are incredibles. Since season 6, they really dumbed the show a lot. The race used to be a lot more difficult, with grueling legs and tough clues. Now they mostly cast blonde bimbos who want to «flirt there way to the top» (meaning: getting eliminated in the first 3 episodes) or young bickering couples from LA. The show is still okay but nowhere near as good as it used to be.
