'Amazing Race': The Finale -- A New Level of Lame

Thank goodness Alaska is really pretty because, really, what else was there to watch on this final episode? No two-hour special, no two-leg finish between the final three. The first clue sent the teams packing to the final destination city: Anchorage. Anyone else pining for Season 1, when they went...

'Amazing Race': Happy Birthday Jen! (Okay, Maybe Not)

It was Jen's birthday on this leg. In case you didn't catch that. You know, like the 7,000th time she insisted that Nate shouldn't continue with his end of their patented hate-a-thon because It's.

'Amazing Race': Nate & Jen, Never No. 1

Sorry, but I continue to feel as though there is no particular team on this Race that gives me any reason to get all enthusiastic. And this week, it was all pretty much more of the same except -- shocker! -- Ron went an ENTIRE LEG without yelling at Christina....

'Amazing Race': To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo...

So, no surprise here: With just five teams left, "Amazing Race" had its first non-elimination round Sunday night--the first of only two on this race, Phil informed us. Which turned out to be excellent timing, since this was the leg when Kynt and Vyxsin had their first meltdown, and finished...

'Amazing Race': Ready for Their YouTube Moment...

I so want to do this race. I really, really do. I love the idea of traveling around the world, dashing from pit stop to pit stop, taking on ridiculous challenges like trying to milk a camera when flying across the ocean, face down, with only a rope to hold...

'Amazing Race': When Karma Decides to Impeach the Bleach

Cardinal Rule of Reality TV: If you do dirt, karma will come back to bite you in the butt. Mind you, karma might not exact its revenge right away. It might wait until, say, the next episode. But when it strikes, its comeuppance is swift, and -- as was the...
