This episode of The Amazing Race took place in Argentina, where I was born. We left when I was eight, so all I really know about the place is what I have heard from my family, but even so it was fun to see Mendoza, Buenos Aires, and Tigre.
This is the second season of The Amazing Race that I have watched, and I am pretty much kicking myself for not watching it earlier. Though I have to admit, this season far outstrips the last one, and it is because of Rob and Amber. Their skill at finding the littlest foothold to get themselves ahead is only surpassed by their sheer luck. Last ep. they took a four hour penalty that put them far behind the first four teams, but they still made the early flight (causing much gnashing teeth among those first four teams) and then pulled out the win at the end of the stage.
I am in awe. Plus, they are wickedly fun to watch. I’d also like to note, for those people who felt that Amber displayed little personality in Survivor: All Stars, staying mostly in Rob’s shadow… same thing is happening here. If she has a personality, she’s hiding it very well. Rob, of course, couldn’t hide his personality if… oh, someone offered him a million dollars.
I look forward to this show every week.
