On your mark, get set, and go for Emmy-Award winning Amazing Race's sixth season on DVD. Passports in hand, eleven teams race across the globe from Senegal to Sri Lanka. The colorful cast includes a pair of grandparents, married professional wrestlers, and engaged models.
The teams adventure though everything from Viking Villages to glacial lagoons, persevering through the elements and cultural shock towards the ultimate cash prize. Only in a show as unpredictable as THE AMAZING RACE could a Chicago deep dish pizza be the difference between first and last, and when it comes down to the finish line, it is one of the closest races in the history of the game. Find out who crosses first in this special edition DVD set.

I remember this season even after six years, it's pretty much the season that got me hooked on the show even though I was really disappointed with who won, a more inane, shallow and ignorant team has never appeared on AR before or since, well , maybe this past spring season but it's close. Ironically Kendra and her bf and the team I'm speaking of from the most recent season are all models...just a coincidence I'm sure.
Anyway, we're halfway through this season, we have to force ourselves to watch just one (ok, maybe two) episodes a week, and I thought because I know who wins it would kind of kill the thrill for me but it really hasn't. This is just an entertaining season with Rebecca and her ex boyfriend who we call horn boy (if you've watched this season you'll know why) constantly at each others throats and Rebecca proving over and over that she's one of the funniest and most fun contestants ever who gets the award for one of the best comebacks in the history of AR when confronted by Kendra about the time out; Kendra; "why did you do that to us, why?" Rebecca; "so many questions...", love it. And speaking of Kendra; her utterance of increasingly more stupid, racist, offensive and inane comments every week, and let's also not forget the used car salesman type from LA who thinks he's the smartest man not only in the race but on the planet and isn't even close, and on and on. It's a great show and I think this was one of the best seasons....despite who won the million dollars in the end.
This is one of my favorite seasons of Amazing Race, and I was stoked when I found out it was getting a DVD release. Overall this may be one of the most fun casts that the show has ever had (even if it does have terrible Jonathan). It also features some of my favorite challenges and one of the most fun race routes.
The set itself is a little disappointing for what it's worth. I'm glad that it comes in a regular-sized case to save shelf-space, but I'm a little disappointed that quality was sacrificed for having the season spread over a smaller number of discs. It's 13 episodes, 11 of which are 42 minutes and first and last episodes being 80 minutes each, on a mere three discs. Personally I would have been happier with four discs, with the extra space used to increase quality. The Survivor seasons are spread over five discs and have higher quality video/audio. I can't complain too much though, since just two years ago the possibility of this season getting any sort of home media release was practically nonexistent, so I'm thankful that it actually even got released.
The chances of this season ever getting a mass-retail release are practically zero, so if you're a fan of the season, this is your best bet. The prices on these sets fluctuate all the time, so wait for a price on this that catches your eye and jump at the chance. If you are an Amazing Race fan and you missed this season, I would highly recommend it. If you love the season like me, this is a must buy.
