Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

For its seventh edition, The Amazing Race welcomed two familiar faces. Reality TV vets Rob and Amber were one of eleven teams competing for the million-dollar prize. The other contestants covered the spectrum, like boyfriends Lynn and Alex, brothers Brian and Greg, married couple Uchenna and Joyce, and mother/son duo Susan and Patrick. The latter decides he'll do whatever it takes to beat Boston Rob. As he notes in the season premiere, "I watched Survivor. He's as dumb as a rock." The show’s top-rated installment spanned five continents and 40,000 miles, from Long Beach, CA to Fort Lauderdale, FL. Other pit stops include Buenos Aires, Istanbul, and London. Some of the more colorful challenges include llama herding in Peru and cave rappelling in South Africa, while the emotional high point is a trip to a Soweto orphanage, an experience that reduces Uchenna and Joyce to tears. There will also be sacrifices along the way, as when Gretchen, the second oldest contestant--after her 69-year-old husband, Meredith--has a frightening fall and Joyce says so long to her hair. The seventh season of The Amazing Race is broken into 12 episodes, including three two-part programs. This boxed set features a mini-documentary, chatty commentary from four of the highest-ranked teams, and over three hours of deleted material. After the race aired, Lynn and Alex and Rob and Amber--on network TV, naturally--tied the knot. It was also revealed that Joyce once had a recurring role on Star Trek: The Next Generation. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

My, my, my - how opinions can differ!

To the other reviewer, all I can say is, "You've got to be kidding!"

I consider myself a discerning television viewer, and I simply can't get enough of this great TV show! And this is a show that we will watch over and over again, regardless of our already now knowing who wins in the final episode of each season.

The winning only matters the FIRST time you watch each season; subsequent viewings reveal all the subtle nuances of the competitions, when someone should have zigged when they'd zagged, and what we ourselves would need to know and use should we ever find ourselves in similar situations - and remember, this show is really a study of group dynamics, whether it be a competition between travelers to foreign lands, or in the boardroom, in your community, or at home between family members.

Finally, it is a refreshing approach to a travelogue - even if you are not into reality TV or competitiveness, the shear beauty of the photography and the fascinating interactions with the locals alone could have you hooked on "The Amazing Race" series!

And with regard to this particular race series - The Seventh Season - this turned out to be one of our favorites of all seven seasons!

Amber and Rob are certainly the new Ozzie and Harriet - I hope to see even more of them on Reality TV in the future! Amber's integrity, patience, and optimism are refreshing in today's cynical world. And Rob's mugging and whispered asides to the camera on his game strategy are both revealing and hilarious!

And yes, Gretchen's constant grousing became like nails on a chalkboard, but she also showed that she was a real trooper, had phenomenal endurance and drive, and a genuine heart of gold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Any TAR is Good, But This Wasn't Best Season September 26, 2005
Having Rob and Amber from "Survivor" compete on this show's Season 7 was obviously a bit of stunt casting (and, to a degree, was regrettable, because TAR shouldn't really need to resort to such attention-grabbing ploys) but as far as that goes, they were a definite upgrade from Alison from "Big Brother", who appeared in Season 5 along with her boyfriend Donny. It really shouldn't come as a shock that they proved to be excellent competitors, and there's one leg of the race in particular where the Robfather pulls a Jedi mind trick to convince some of the weaker-willed to dance to his tune.

Personally, I think Seasons 3 and 6 have been the strongest, but this edition has one really great team (Brian and Greg), the requisite team you love to hate (Ray and Deana), the token old couple (Meredith and Gretchen) that refuses to go quietly into that good night (NEVER bet on the old couple to be eliminated first on any TAR season), a stereotypically snarky gay couple (Lynn and Alex), and the ever-popular team where you can't believe the words that are coming out of their mouths (from Kelly--not so much from Ron). At least one of the teams had no real business being on the show--the word is that they were actually recruited by the casting agents, rather going through the audition tape process like everyone else, and it is pretty much evident. A member of another team spends so much time groaning and complaining about inevitable defeat that you'll want to hit the mute button whenever he shows up on the screen.

This season spends rather more time in South America than in previous outings and, unusually, scarcely hits Europe at all, and then takes a literally surprising direction for the home stretch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will Rob and Amber Survive the Amazing Race? December 21, 2005
By the seventh season, the show is becoming familiar. Eleven teams of two with some kind of relationship follow clues in a race around the world. Along the way, there are also tasks they must perform to get their next clue. These tasks provide looks at the culture of the area they are visiting. Those of us watching at home get a nice geography and culture lesson without ever leaving out living room. As each leg of the race ends, the last team is usually eliminated, narrowing the field each weak until the final three teams race for the finish.

The teams this season fall into the normal parameters. There's a gay couple, several couples who are dating or married, a pair of brothers, an older couple, and a mother/son team. Frankly, it feels a bit like they have a template these days and are looking to fill certain pre set rolls. Still, this season had the standouts. Brothers Brian and Greg were nice guys everyone was rooting for. Ray and Deena were this season's fight from day one couple. Meredith and Gretchen, despite their age, proved to be tough competitors. While they often irritated me, I couldn't help but root for them. Kelly and Ron were the all American beauty queen/Iraq war vet couple. I started out liking them, but by the end they made me cringe. Uchenna and Joyce where such a nice couple, you couldn't help but root for them. And then there was Rob and Amber.

Whether it was supposed to be or not, this season of The Amazing Race became all about Rob and Amber, still riding high off Amber's win in Survivor All-Star. Unlike the last time TAR tried a reality show crossover, Rob and Amber proved to have real staying power, using their fame to find help along the way.

what happened to seasons 2-6?
There may be some other reasons. Intially the money used to pay for prizes and the production of many TV shows you see on TV is initially paid for by TV advertising. I hear the old seasons of The Amazing Race are being rerun on the Game Show Network on cable. Guess what? They air current... Read more
