Re: The Amazing Race is back tonight!

I have it on my DVR but haven't watched it yet.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Do you have any idea on how long the show shut down?

 


They started filming in March 2020, did three legs then shut down for covid, then resumed in September 2021. It was about eighteen months between the stop and start.

I thought it was interesting that one couple met on line and I got the impression they just met to do the race.

You're so right. I was shocked by the ignorance of the teams. 


Are they millennials?

One of the teams that didn't know who Boris Johnson is are educators in their 40s. :/

Early Millennials are in their 40's.

I thought it was 1980, oh well. It was still not a good representation of Americans lack of knowledge. 

The same thing happens when the teams go to a foreign country and get indignant when the citizens don't speak English.

Just a reminder we have another episode tonight at 9:00 PM ET. Just a one-hour episode tonight. This may be the last leg before the covid chaos enveloped the cast and crew.

Looks like next week we will be down to only 5 teams. According to Wikipedia, 4 of the teams were not able to return when they resumed filming.
