An Amazing Ripoff On The Amazing Race

amazingrace

The Emmy award winning reality series, The Amazing Race, has seen it’s ups and downs during it’s many seasons but on the November 15th, 2009 episode it hit a big snag in the eyes of many viewers. Join us in our forum to discuss! But let’s set the stage. During a roadblock, which is a task only one team member can perform, the teams were instructed to go to this mysterious building in Estonia. They were sent with a keyring full of keys and instructed that only one key would open the door, but they had to use their key to open it and the keyhole was in a stone wall.

At one point during this task, Sam and Dan, brothers, used another teams key once it was known which key worked, to enter the building, obviously saving them an immeasurable amount of time. Then the Globetrotters team followed another team in, once that team had found which key worked, effectively skipping the assigned task of not even having to go through their keys. This also saved them an immeasurable amount of time.

Meanwhile, the father and son team of Gary and Matt, who placed last in the previous leg and had to do a Speed Bump, while not quite caught up due to that Speed Bump weren’t apparently that far behind unless the CBS editing made it look that way.

Are Big Brother Fans Unrealistic In Their Expectations of The Houseguests After The Show?

So, Big Brother 11 has been over for about a month or so and the houseguests have been home, doing their own thing. They’ve been out and about, doing interviews, getting on Facebook/Twitter/Myspace and even making their own blogs. And the fans have been gobbling it up, every bit they can get.

I (Ahrean) can admit, I eat that up as well. I love it. I grab every nugget I can get and read it because I genuinely love hearing all I can. You almost feel like you are a part of their lives because they were a part of yours all summer long. However, as a fan, you have be realistic as well. And this sucks to say, but the houseguests most likely DON’T know you as individuals. They do care, in the sense that without the fans there wouldn’t have been  a show and without the show they wouldn’t have gotten the exposure they have now. BUT that doesn’t mean you get to place unrealistic expectations on them either.

Case in point. Jeff and Jordan.

Are you ready for the Race?

Now that Big Brother is sadly over, the forum is buzzing with talk of the Amazing Race! Come on and join us!

‘Meet The Contestants From ‘The Amazing Race 15′

Reporting
Jenn McBride

STUDIO CITY, Calif. (CBS) ―

My friend/co-worker/favorite two-time Big Brother contestant Diane Henry is one of the smartest people I know; she competed on a CBS show before her employment at the company prohibited her from doing so (and came pretty darn close to winning the coveted $500,000 prize during Season 5, too).

I, on the other hand, am deeply saddened to be ineligible for one of the best reality shows on television: The Amazing Race. With mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer at the helm and jet-lagged contestants competing for $1 million every season, it’s no wonder the primetime hit – which takes viewers around the world from the comfort of their couches – has won all six Outstanding Reality Competition Program awards that have been given.

I recently sat down with host Phil Keoghan and all 12 teams competing on Season 15, which premieres Sunday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. on CBS 2. From Harlem Globetrotters to professional poker players, it’s easy to see why these unique contestants were selected. Meet them all:

Maria, 26, and Tiffany, 25
Hometown: Arcadia, Calif./Los Angeles, Calif.
Occupation: Professional Poker Players (Tiffany was the last woman standing at the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2008, an honor Maria held in 2007)
Relationship: Best Friends
Most likely to: play the other contestants

Big Brother 11 – It Was The Summer of JeJo!!

Summer lovin’, had us a blast……..summer lovin’, happened so fast! Big Brother 11 is officially over and WOW, what a summer it was!  We had tears, laughter, fights galore, and an expulsion!

But one thing’s for sure, it was the summer of JeJo! Or, if you prefer, Jordeff. :) Jeff has to be, by far, one of the most popular houseguests ever to come on Big Brother, as is evidenced by his CDT win AND tonight’s America’s Choice Favorite Houseguest win. Jordan also shared her modem of popularity, as she won the America’s Choice Jury  Vote, which gave her the 5-2 win.

Jeff and Jordan weren’t your stereotypical showmance either. A showmance, by it’s very definition, is two people flirting and such in the Big Brother house, using each other to further themselves in the game while having no real romantic interest in each other. Jeff and Jordan, we truly believe, did have interest in each other and weren’t using each other. They truly cared for one another. Now that may not translate outside of the house but they had each other, in the game and outside the game as well…..in the human moments.
