The Amazing Race – Team Superbad – Can I Buy A Lottery Ticket With You Guys?

- The Superbad team have got to be the dumbest but luckiest team in The Amazing Race history.

In a week where the level of idiocy from males on reality TV hit new highs with ice cream scooper Eric giving his immunity necklace away to then be voted out on Survivor, these boys come in come in a close second for the reality TV morons award.

They started the leg without shoes as they left them on the previous leg when they dressed up as a cow, but this was just the beginning of their woes

As Ken (of the Ken and Tina team) said “They are good at the travel [between the clues], but suck at the challenges.”

The stumbled and staggered at the detour. They started on the marching detour when one couldn’t do the socks, they then flipped to the serving Borchst detour, then back to marching, then back to the borchst.

Then they finally stagger into the pitstop last and it is a non-elimination round. How they made top four and will be in the running for 1 million dollars is a reality TV travesty.

Love the nickname! Team Superbad – it’s perfect. Yeah, I don’t know how you can make it through high school with the levels of coordination these guys have, let alone make it to the final four in a reality show. How hard can wrapping your foot be?

I’m so glad they at least attempted the marching challenge. I haven’t laughed so hard in ages.

I cannot claim that I made up the Superbad nickname. I thought it was the nickname other teams gave them.

I couldn’t work out why they quit the borscht detour the first time.
