Amazing Race

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Anyone watching this? I got such a laugh last night when Rob's dirty practical joke backfired on him and gave the other teams quite a lead in the race. Amber's face when she realized they weren't in first was priceless. I heard they got married a few weeks ago, and CBS televised the whole wedding to show in June- Why she would marry such a creepy guy is beyond me.

We have amazing race on our screens but now sure what season it is. Sometimes if there is nothing else on then I will watch it.

Yup, both dh and I really enjoy watching this...last night was a good one!

I've been impressed with how well Rob and Amber work as a team, they rarely grump at each other, certainly none of the abusive-edging comments from the beauty queen to her pow boyfriend - now those two should NOT get married, imho.

And speaking of dark sides, Gretchen was quite nasty last week, really changed my impression of her though I give her major points for heart and sticktoitiveness.

I very much like Joyce and Uchenna

Yep, and Merideth and his wife are sure making a run for it- but if I hear "Oh My God" one more time, I think I will throw my shoe at the television!

We just watched it, I am pulling for Joyce and Uchenna, but there is also a special place for Gretchen and Meridith - I was smiling so big when they got in 2nd. Gretchen was a real trouble in the ladder climb! But she did it!

My husband and I want to be like them when/if we grown up... we are however taking our "memory retention" pills starting now.

I'm not a fan of Rob and Amber...I wish any other couple would win.

I know I'm in the minority, but I love Rob and Amber! I loved them on Survivor All-Stars too. I know Rob grates on most people's nerves, but I get a huge kick out of him. IMO, he's one of the few people who realizes this is a game, and a race. Although most of the whiners are gone, I have to say it irks me when they moan that "so & so lied to me", or "so & so was mean to me". So what? They're your competition, not your friends. Get over it.

The "pageant queen", though, has to get off my TV. Now. When she accused her fiance of "getting out of his military commitment" by being a POW???? Ugh. What a self centered, spoiled little...well...you get the idea.

Gretchen's getting on my nerves. Her and Meredith are pretty benign, though, so I wouldn't mind if they won.

I also love Uchenna and Joyce. Joyce looks gorgeous without her hair! Good for her for going through with it. Remember the "models" team from another season that refused? Vanity cost them that game. I think it would be great if U & J won.

So the team I want to win is: Anyone except Pageant Queen.

cixpix, i'm with you, i LOVE rob and amber. I've been a fan of AR since season one, and NEVER has the race been played as hard as they're playing it.

i too love the shaven head, it turned out great. and not many women can say that, but her head is flawless.

One word: Rob's a MACHINE! GO ROB!

Honestly, Rob (and amber) drives me NUTS. I think it's the fact he resorts to all these schemes and BS. This is the 3rd season I've watched AR and it's the first I've seen people so desperate to win that they'd lie, scheme and bribe

On the upside, I've never laughed so hard as I did when his latest scheme came back and bit him in the *you know*.

I have this love hate thing going on with Rob and Anber, I HATE his scheems, yet I love them. He has been stewing on his Survivor experience, and it seems that he learnd some. I hate his shimannagans, but imake for good tv.

Wow now this was indeed an amazing race! I am so glad that Uchenna and Joyce won! They played nice, they played clean and they were so behind so many times. When they got that flat tire I thought it was going to be all over with, but then Rob for some reason looked for a ground path for Amber to make a 30 foot jump into the water- and that was their final error. I read where Uchenna and Joyce are thinking of returning to that orphanage and bringing back a couple of kids to adopt! It was a great finale, someone made the comment that if Amber or Rob had been running to reach first place at the end, someone might have tripped them.

Im glad that Joyce and Uchenna won as well
Though I was always one of the few Rob and Amber fans, J and U really deserve that money. They want children so badly and this will help them on their way
And for Joyce to shave off her beautiful hair... She should have been handed the $1 mill check right there

glad thay won
post #17 of 21
I'm glad too. They're the only ones of the final three teams I didn't want to smack LOL. I'm sooo glad I watched it alone cause I went a little crazy when they won LMAO
post #18 of 21
So glad they won!!!
Lovey and my daughter were looking at me so strangely when I am biting my nails shouting for them to gogogo!!! and then rooting for them on their run up to the finish!!
They SO deserved it!
Though I wonder why they begged for cab money at the end instead of just running in and telling them to wait until they got their million ! So many people would have just taken off I think..as I have seen in other races where the people have ripped the cabbies off (remember one where the police were called??)

Anyway, I thought that showed integrity!

I think that Rob and Amber likely deserve to be a little more humble in life for awhile anyway but they were entertaining!

We taped this and watched it last night, I had tears of joy in my eyes when they won.... biting my fingers nails (which I never do) when I thought Amber and Rob might win. I was so happy!!!!!! Yipee!!!

I read on an TAR forum that the contestants are not permitted to do anything illegal. If the cabbie had said 'no, never mind, forget the $25', then they would have been okay with running in, but if U&J had stiffed the cabbie, they would have been disqualified.

I think the difference is that those other teams offered to pay their drivers, just less than what they cabbie wanted.

I'm happy for Uchenna & Joyce. They seem like really nice people.
