The new season of The Amazing Race did not rate well for 7Mate on Sunday, and it has been moved forward to 5.30pm on a Sunday.
This a pity as it is a good cast which will make it entertaining series. However tend agree with TV Tonight who thinks the reason no one is watching is the viewer do not know it is on.

Thank God for the free to air digital channels as they are ensuring the good reality shows are being fast tracked from the USA. First it was Survivor and now the latest season of The Amazing Race is going to be shown on 7MATE six days after it has aired overseas.
It looks like they have dumped the $2 million first prize money if the team wins both the first and last leg but there is a new twist where the first team to check in at the first pit-stop will earn two “Express Passes” — one to keep and one that they must give to another team by the end of the fourth leg of the race.
The Cast for the 22 season is:
- Idries and Jamil Abdur-Rahman are twin brothers from Chicago, Ill. Both men are OB/GYN doctors.
- Max and Katie Bichler are newlyweds from Buffalo, N.Y.
- Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere are mothers from Colorado. They are also roller derby teammates.
- Bates and Anthony Battaglia are brothers from Raleigh, N.C. The brothers are professional hockey players.
- Chuck and Wynona McCall are a married couple from Daphne, Ala. Chuck is a taxidermist and his wife is a hairstylist.
- David and Connor O’Leary are a father and son team from Salt Lake City. Both are cancer survivors.
- Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Kuhle are friends and country singers in a band. Caroline is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone and Jennifer is the granddaughter of John Wayne.
- Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena are friends from Los Angeles. They list their occupation as YouTube hosts.
- Pamela Chien and Winnie Sung are best friends from Los Angeles.
- Jessica Hoel and John Erck are a dating couple from Huntington Beach, Calif.
- Matthew Davis and Daniel Moss are firefighters from Gaffney, S.C.

Was anyone else surprised, the goat farmers, Josh and Brent, won the latest season of The Amazing Race?
This pair bumbled around for most of the race and the only thing that saved them from elimination in Moscow was when the rock star lawyers lost their passports.
However you only have to win one leg and that is the last one, and to be honest I was heartened to see that you did not have to be a prime physical speciman to with the million dollars.
Interestingly enough this was not their first time on reality TV as they have a show called “The Fabulous Beekman Boys”. It has aired for two season and it is unclear whether there will be a third.
Here is an exit interview with Hit Fix and it is an indepth one.
Also the boys have been inspirational to people everywhere and after they were contacted by a 12 year old gay boy’s mother they roped in their other Amazing Race team mates to do a photo montage to show how amazing he was. Huffington Post has the story.

Abba and James, the rock lawyers, were running a great race until their passports was stolen in Russia. They had left their bags in the back of a cab whilst going off to get a clue ant the driver took off with them.
Fans of the series will know once a contestant has lost a passport it means they are gone from the competition as they cannot continue to race.
James and Abba had more chances then most to get it back as it was a non elimination leg, and the race was not leaving the city of Moscow, however they were in Russia the bureaucratic capital of the world.
They discuss their ordeal in an interview with Hollywood Reporter where they say James’ passport is normally tied to him but was in his bag due to his clothes being wet from the synchronised swimming challenge. The former rockers also admit they had no idea the Sri Lankan sisters had their money.
In the end last night the goat farmers, Josh and Brent, were extremely lucky as they received a four hour time penalty because they did not complete the synchronised swimming challenge. They would have been eliminated if the passport incident had not occurred.
The bumbling Chippendale’s are finally looking like contenders at the pointy end of the race. They came first in this leg closely followed by Lexi and Trey. The Sri Lankan girls came third and they unnecessarily used their challenge pass to skip the Russian time zone road block.
