It's weird. There's really no team I dislike. I actually really like this cast. I'm not, however, a fan of this "head to head" twist.

Agreed, especially on the head to head business. I do prefer the NBA players and Yale - they're fun - I don't understand how Jody even fit the theme and I can't stomach them so I pretend that's just a mistake... I like everyone else and have been really enjoying how close the finishes have been!

A lot of teams don't fit the theme: Jody, Lifeguards, Firefighters, Violinists... Goat Yoga, Ring Girls. I like Jess and Cody. They've been consistently performing well, and they work well together.

whats the theme?

"The most competitive season yet" purportedly the best competitors in their respective fields

These teams are so boring. I need a villain team already! 

I used to watch this too back in the day then I just stopped.....can't even remember why lmaooooo

Yeah, there really isn't a villain on this one (at least so far).  There are people I haven't particularly liked (Joey, Lucas, the blonde bully woman who couldn't stop belitting her partner and then chided her for being upset and crying about the criticism) but I'm not actively rooting against anyone at this point.  My favorite team from the get-go has been Evan and Henry and I haven't changed my mind about them yet.

BOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRINNNNGGGGGGGGGG

BOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRINNNNGGGGGGGGGG

This head to head gave you am advantage if you didn't win first because you get the hang of it, unlike the last which just tired you out

isn't that the point?

regardless, the twist is lame imo

I'm fine with this season. I don't need this to be Jersey Shore. Not really rooting for anyone, but I've been enjoying the locations thus far. 

The head to head twist saves us from dead episodes where the last team gets too far behind. 

I was sad to see the ballers go I really liked them... if only they didn’t make such stupid mistakes they could have really done well. I don’t remember his name but the one who had 3 heart attacks should not have done that challenge with his bag on he was doing so well at first! Same as Jess and Cody wearing their packs to the bull racing. Why bring your pack if you don’t have to!

I agree. The entire race, Shawn should have been doing the legs that Cedric ended up doing. They managed roadblocks and detours wrong in my opinion. It basically came down to a coin flip in the head to head with that last ball being really close. 

Im confused on the route, they went backwards, why go from Belgium to Morocco to France in that order?

I usually hate amazing race because theres no drama unlike other reality shows but this season I’ve enjoyed it cus jess and cody and the cool countries

My biggest thing is there are no stand outs or memorable teams.

This is the worst cast, I quit watching after the first hour Wednesday. I’ll watch the finale and that’s it. The cast has no charisma, no humor, no drama, its ugly. Sucks they finally got a good time slot and ruin it with a horrific cast.

The cast is okay, not terrible, but aside from the NBA players who of course are gone and the snowboarders, I don't really care about them. Like even the proposal felt bland.

yeah like Idk if anyone has even cried yet. The teams last year were unbearable but at least we got arguments and annoyingness

 The reason I stopped watching the amazing race a long time ago is because of casting. The older seasons used to have a good balance of people that were likable/loveable along with teams you know would be disliked/hated. And of course there would be a good amount of drama between the teams. Now it seems so bland and you just don’t care for anyone.

Last season finally got me back into it because there was interesting teams/dynamics. This season is even worse then the one the journalist couple one a few ago. Gimme another blind date season over these dorky firefighters and other irrelevants.

I actually liked the blind date season. 

My least favorite was the vine/youtube "stars" one. I only made it 15  minutes into episode 1.

that was HORRID!! I liked back when thy used to cast different people, ie: cowboys, deaf guy, little person, now it’s all the same 

I'm a huge fan of Jody, but they really disappointed me tonight. If they make it past this leg it's cause CBS handed it to them.

they are better singers, not sure that is cbs doing. 

Does anyone (or everyone) else have that song stuck in their head now?!  I'll probably dream about it tonight.

I'm still rooting for Evan and Henry.  I'm not a big fan of Jessica and Cody; I don't watch Big Brother so I don't know what they were like on that show but I'm almost rooting against them at this point.  Kristie and Jen are really strong and I fully expect them to make it to the Final 3, if not win the whole thing (but I'm really hoping for Evan and Henry to get to Phil first at the end).

 

I was literally singing it for 2+ hours after I watched the episode. So much so that then my 6 year old who had not seen the show started singing it. Now it is back in my head thinking about it. 

Reality shows need to stop this two-hour episode BS.  I'm just hanging on.  The best way to lose me is to give me two hours of something I marginally want to watch. A true bonus would be a 30-minute episode. 

Yeah I don’t know why they are doing so many 2 hour episodes but next week it’s over

to hurry up and get the season over along with CBBUS and survivor to start

The Indycar guys are going to win the race I think.
