Yes they need to read those clues better, I know they are in a hurry but still it is really important when to know if you can cab it or not.

I too wanted Jet and Dave to win on the Canadian one. Last night when they got to the pit stop I told my daughter to look for any flowers or symbols they might have to know at the end.

I really wanted to like the New England couple because the guy is from the town next to mine but she just annoyed me. She had to tell everyone that she graduated HS at 16, finished college in 3 years and has 2 Master's degrees. Just rubbed me the wrong way.

The yelling brothers remind me of the twinnies.



I like the doctors and the NFL guys best so far. I'm sure I'll change my mind as the season goes along, I always do

Sort of a weak premiere last night, IMO. There wasn't a really complicated Road Block, so for the most part there wasn't any chance for the bottom 4 teams to catch the first 7. It all came down to the first drive to the airport.

Not sure who I'm rooting for yet.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Hi everyone! I love AR too! My sister and I always secretly say we would be such a good team because we love to travel and she would be so good and things I wouldn't be, and vice versa.

Last night they were announcing (locally I think) that there will be tryouts for the show in a town very near us. I told my sister to get herself a flight up here so we could go to it. So much for daydreaming ...

Anyway .... I'm still trying to figure out who I like best. It'll be a few weeks before I really get a good feel for the teams and get a favorite. Funny how they started this show and the last season's opener with parachuting. That scenery from Bora Bora last season took my breath away!

The one guy (not sure which) is seriously going to have to take it down a notch.

I completely agree. The 4 teams on the second flight didn't stand a chance. The challenges were pretty straight forward so nothing that could have really slowed the first 7 down enough to not get to the mat in time.

Too early to know who I'm rooting for. I like the doctors so far, but we'll see.

I was disappointed, too, that there was no way to catch up. That bored me. There were a LOT of teams I did not like, too. The ice chicks, the baseball wives, the team that came in first, the dating couple, the father/daughter, the screamers..

I really like the football players, the bingo guys, the doctors, and the guys from Oklahoma.

I hope the whole season isn't as annoying and lame as last night...

Ever thought you had a great idea only to find out that everyone else had the same lightbulb turning on over their heads as well?

I like it more when the race used to be just your "average joe's" who could use the money--what is there 3 teams on here that are related to professional sports to some degree?
There are the 2 who are the LA King ice crew girls, the 2 former NFL players, the 2 wives of MLB players---maybe they need the money who knows just think they shouldn't have a season with this many on it.
I like the couple Jason and Amy so far and am sure that the squabbling between Tim and Marie is going to get old fast.
I love the AR so look forward to the weeks ahead!

I like the Doctors too but I thought for sure they messed up because didn't he parasail an then didn't he take the boat out to get the fish? I thought that had to be the other person and I kept waiting for that to come up...especially when it did for the other teams.

You know they are in it for long haul because they are so irritating.

He parasailed because she told the cabbie, in Spanish, to follow the parasailers. Oh wait just reread what you said but I still think they did it right. The parasailer had to row the boat.

Or maybe I am just being extra irritable because I have a horribly painful ear infection!

Umm, I liked them. Found them full of life. I guess I'm in the absolute minority.

Honestly, I think that's why the AR - Canada went over so well. Besides one team who are famous here - they were just that. It was refreshing.

I was thinking about your comment as I saw the scenes for next week. I thought "boy I guess one needs to look pretty darn good in a lack of clothes to be picked!".

Other way around, whoever did the parasailing -so not the one that had to find the parasailer, had to do the boat thing...there were I think 2 teams who got it backwards at first.
