Amazing Indeed!!

Last night was the Amazing Race finale and it was, AMAZING!!! There are not many television shows that make me stand up in my living room and scream, "Run, run, run!!!", but this is one of them. Kevin and I are big Survivor fans, the rest of reality T.V. we can pretty much take or leave. I had never before watched the Amazing Race but Rob and Amber from Survivor were two of the racers and part of it was curiosity, but now, I am hooked on The Race. The couple who won the race also won my heart. I have never before felt such a kinship to two people I don't know from Adam. To see them come from dead last, with no money, simply the clothes on their backs and sheer determination to win was thrilling! Also, they finished in Ft.Lauderdale at Bonnet House and I was just there in February, how exciting!! (See mom, television can be fun!!:-)) Oh, it was great, great, great!!!

Did you watch the race? What would you do with a million dollars?

Anybody want to be my Amazing Race partner? *Warning* I am directionally challenged!

Rob and Amber will be on Regis and Kelly tomorrow morning.
Can't wait!

I think The Amazing Race is the best reality show! It has it all!!! Survivor is very good. But, wow, I don't think there is anything as suspenceful as TAR!!!

No. I don't watch. My hubby and boys will watch Survivor from time to time. I don't like many reality shows. I guess none. Except I like that House Makeover where thy build new houses for people that need them. That one is fun.

But a million dollars would be GREAT!

Oh Laney, I am SO there! My heart was beating so fast last night waiting to see who was going to come around the corner. Two people who are so deserving of that money, deserved to win.

And if you ever go on TAR, I'll go with you! I can read a map, and direct us through any city in the world, just don't ask me to drive on the left side of the road. Oh-or eat something nasty. I have too high of a gag reflex.
have a good day!

I also enjoy The Amazing Race although I am not a faithful, every-week watcher.

I would love to be your partner! It looks like so much fun- but I have to second what Dawn said about eating gross stuff. I don't think I could handle that. :)

You're so cute! I do not watch Survivor or The Amazing Race, but I hear they are great shows. I'll watch if you go on it...

I believe you have to have your husband as your partner. I know how to read a map and that the sun sets in the west.

If you take Kevin for a partner I will come and babysit - I'll let the boys stay up late and watch you, hey, I might even watch TV!

Laney said...

Wow! What great offers!!! I love you guys.

I'm directionally challenged too- we'd probably be the first pair ever that need a Search and Rescue team. :)
