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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
