    Anyone watch last night? There was a thread on the main forum that nobody had used in 5 years so I decided to make one here.

    Haven't been able to stand Rupert for like 20 years so really happy he's gone.

    Rachel Riley is the most annoying human being in the history of reality tv.

    Just caught up. Hate the former reality show contestant format. Just rooting for Rachel to be eliminated as early as possible. Why do they keep inviting her back?

    Kind of disappointed with the season thus far. Hopefully Dubai and Europe give us a kick.

    Phil said in pre-season interviews that he was skeptical at first, but ended up pleased with the season.

    They picked some of the worst teams. I’m a big fan of Team Fun and Bromance personally. The one Big Brother couple is solid too. The rest are meh.

    Was so excited to see Rachel get sent home. Pretty pissed they got to stay. Did like her sister calling her out on her BS crying on camera.

    Such a letdown to not see Rachel gone. At this rate though they can’t last much longer.

    Between Rachel getting so lucky and the utter lack of competition outside of the actual challenges I’m starting to think this season is either rigged or a mail-in from the producers.

    Hope the show gets back to getting regular people on the show. The groups backstory is part of the show. The "All-Star" type seasons are ok once in a while but its been awhile since they got none previous season, Survivor, Big Brother participants.

    Phil K voiceover-

    devine and racer - internet acquaintances from the-mainboard.com

    “Being a newly minted internet mod, my main focus is stopping others from getting where they want to go and experiencing joy. Those other teams better look out.”
    *shot of devine furiously thread banning posters*
    “Combine that with my songwriting skills and brain full of random thoughts, nothing can stop us now.”
    *shot of devine and racer walking toward each other in super fast motion. Slow down, devine goes in for the bro hug double back tap combo while racer does the jumping back bump. Awkward recovery into the back to back look over the shoulder arms crossed pose*

    The show was so much better when pitstops were just 12 hours and teams had to book their own flights. Its dumb that finishing top of a leg gets you no advantage and basically everyone is even at the start of the next leg and are always on the same flight. Basically leaves it up to whoever gets lucky with the best taxi driver.

    I haven’t dug too deep into production on more recent seasons. Have they eliminated the travel agent/airport flight battle all together, or are they just focusing less on that stuff?

    Old school amazing race had some of its best moments and gamesmanship in the airports and train/bus stations.

    Annoying. As much as I love this show it may have run it’s course with more current technology.

    They should make a rule that you can’t ask for a phone for navigation or flight info and get back to the show’s roots. Back in the days where you had to find the one hotel business center computer to get a leg up.

    When Rachel was the one that had to shoot the apple I knew they were done. Should bring back her sister and her husband as a team and have Rachel watch them win it all.

    Finally got to lady week’s episode.

    :chatzy:

    They just said in their RHAP exit interview that they had to fix the cow’s hat and that’s when they lost the clue. Which makes sense because that shit was 100% upside down and I was furious that they passed.

    Loved last nights episode because it felt like an old school AR episode. Fighting over flights, difficult detours and roadblocks meaning people could actually pass others, and throw in Colin and Christie forgetting the gnome and the giant collapse by survivor. Best episode of the season.

    Wife is done with Team Fun after they "Cut in Line". Happy the Stand-By Flight worked. Very old school episode. Think Colin/Christie is my least favorite team but I don't hate them. Been awhile since I wasn't rooting against a team to win coming down the stretch.

    I'm good with anyone besides big brother winning. I like Colin and Christie, mostly because they're so different than the first time they raced. Colin was such an annoying dick on season 5. At this point for teams I want to see win I'd go:

    Tyler Corey
    Colin Christie
    Fun
    Afghanimals
    Big Brother

    I start to come around on Colin and Christie and then they show a clip of what he used to be like and I don't like him again. It's still inside him somewhere

    33 was halted, I think. 32 was filmed before the reality challenge aired.

    I thought there was a season from like late 2018 that still hadn’t aired yet. I assume thats starting airing after survivor finishes.

    Rewatching some older seasons as background tv. I’ve forgotten a lot of it by now, so that makes it fun to watch. It’s annoying the shit out of me when a team pulls out a good flight find and everyone else asks the ticket agents if they saw other teams and copies them. Glad they made the one and done flight rule for later seasons.

    I'm bummed they pushed the season back to fall. Almost 2 years between filming and actually airing it.
