To my huge disappointment there was no Amazing Race yesterday due to CBS and CTV’s broadcasts of the Academy of Country Music Awards. Maybe it was worth it, but not for me. I don’t mind country music, but I do mind it preempting The Amazing Race!
Anyway, to make the time fly faster until next Sunday, let’s turn to voting. We only have 6 teams left – let’s see which of them is the most fun and entertaining to watch.
From talking to many fans, reading TAR related blogs and forums, I can tell that the least-likable team seems to be either the Honeymooners (Max and Katie) or the You Tubers (Joey and Meghan). The most likable team seems to be either the Hillbillies (Chuck and Wynona) or the Hockey Brothers (Bates and Anthony).
But “likable” and “entertaining” are not always synonymous. Remember this season’s David and Connor? – Likable people, no doubt, but “please-shoot-me” boring! Or take the ex-Survivor player Boston Rob (and his bride) – not very likable at all (especially if you remember how he drove past the car accident of his fellow racers without even slowing down to see if they were alive or not). But entertaining to watch nevertheless.
Paraphrasing a famous quote about well-behaved women seldom making history, I must say that likable teams are seldom entertaining to watch on the Amazing Race. Not that it’s impossible – remember the Globetrotters? – both likable AND entertaining. But it’s rare.
To me – the most entertaining team of the remaining 6 teams is Team Honeymooners (Max and Katie). Chuck and Wynona would be runner-ups (mostly because of Chuck; Wynona is not much fun).
What about you – which of the remaining teams are the most entertaining for you to watch on the Race?
