I'm an absolute Amazing Race addict biggrin.gif

I would have LOVED to apply for the two seasons they've auditioned for the Australian series, but having a baby went and scuppered that plan biggrin.gif

The new US series started on Channel 7 last night, at the very logical time of 9.48pm blink.gif

Anyone else watching?

Thoughts so far?

How beautiful was the wine region they started in? Things like that make me want to visit the US so badly!

I really liked some of the teams, and think it'll be interesting because there are quite a lot of very fit or physical teams, although one of them is gone already sad.gif I felt so sorry for them - they just made one little mistake (leaving their bags in the car) and one big mistake in their panic sad.gif Oh well, one of them is a pro golfer, and even on the women's circuit the money is pretty insane, so I'm guessing that she, at least, might not be needing that $1million

I didn't realise it started last night! Much as I usually look down on reality TV, I must confess that I love The Amazing Race. I don't watch every season, but the ads for this one look really good. I'll have to set up the recorder.

so who's still watching?

what's with all the hate towards the big brother team? That Vanessa girl does seem like a bit of a b!tch. I've noticed from previous seasons that the teams that have already had their 15 minutes of fame on another show don't seem to be well liked by other teams.

who's your pick for the win? I'm thinking either the border patrol guys or the army guy and his wife.

Yep my pick is the army guy and his wife. Totally cant remember names at the moment wacko.gif They have come first so many times already.

Wonder if the special agent girls will ever reveal who they are, looks like the border patrol guys are onto them.

Looks like a new Amazing Race Australia will be on our screens soon too. Can't wait!!
