The Amazing Race – If You Are Not Watching Please Explain
The Amazing Race Australia kicked off last week on Channel Seven to what was a stand out episode.
However it did not get the ratings it deserved as it struggled to break the 900,000 mark. If you are a reality TV fan this series was the best Australia reality TV show on our screens last year, and looks like it has out done itself this season.
If you are not watching it tell me why?
Unfortunately if the show does not rate well it will get pulled so I would urge readers to watch. And if you are sceptical just watch ten minutes of last week’s episode and I can guarantee you will be watching all of it. The full episode is on the official website here.
Also here was my recap from last week but a summary of the highlights:
- Sarah the Cougar both with attitude and clothing;
- The alpha male team that crumbled at the first setback;
- The challenges that were tough enough that the lead changed each time;
- The good looking indigenous guys;
- The kooky hairdressers from WA with their aura spray;
- The cheerleaders who are not as ditzy as they first appear; and
- Actually all the cast.
UPDATE: TV Tonight has this interview with Paul and Steve who say they don’t mind being the villains on this series.
Please support this show, we constantly whinge that we don’t get Australia formats of the big shows from overseas. We have got it and it is better than the US version – Watch it.
By the way this is NOT an advertorial or sponsored post, I am just going to be seriously pissed off if this show is not renewed.
The Amazing Race Australia screens on Wednesday nights on Channel 7 at 9.00pm.
