Well after sitting through the two-hour finale of The Amazing Race, both Chris and I were disappointed that Kris and Jon didn't win (*sigh*). Instead, the “they just keep on breeding” Kendra and Freddy took the first place (can you tell I'm disappointed?).
For the second half of the race, I thought that they were the going to loose as they were just horrible people (more Kendra than Freddy). Her comments about some of the countries they visited were what I would have considered to be the “typical” American, before I lived here. Now I realize that it's just a small bunch of narrow-minded individuals, and we happened to see that through Kendra.
Now I understand that we are just seeing what CBS thinks is going to be good television (think Jonathan and Victoria), but if a person wasn't “like that” then they would “say that” – and she did.
And guess what? The Amazing Race 7 is already being promoted (starts March 1). I guess we really can't get enough of the reality show genre. The new show will have a gay male coupleLynn and Alex, and according to their CBS biography “An additional motivation for Lynnâ€™s participation in the Race is to possibly get married in Amsterdam.”
Also on the show is a couple – Ron and Kelly – where Ron lists his occupation as a “Former Iraq War POW”, though he currently is a student. And Kelly? She is a former Miss South Carolina (2002). Other notable competitors in the new race is a mother and son combination (he's gay too), a couple of female only teams (1, 2), brothers, a retired couple, and others. We'll see how things turn out with this one.
