I don't know who any of the social media people are but I do vaguely recall the lady who was the flight attendant. One viral video gets you on Amazing Race? Pretty nice!

This last episode showed the old adage that book smarts doesn't necessarily mean someone is "street" smart very well. They made so many mistakes time and time again.

I don't like the female dancer calling her partner "stupid" like that. I can see why he isn't in a rush to actually get married to her.. .she definitely seems like she has a bad attitude.

This season sadly gone, I can't watch it. I'll finally tune in when the finale airs.

Surprised on one posted on this season.

I thought it was okay. I just watched the finale last week. I really did not like the dancers, especially the way the girl talked to the guy. What kind of guy puts up with that kind of crap!

Tonight is Amazing Race for "The Price is Right" specials they have been doing all week with reality show contestants. It is kind of lame but thought some people might be interested anyway.

Hmm, talk about the emasculation of asian males in mainstream culture. One asian contestant is a chess champion IIRC and is less physically built than probably most of the women on the show. The other has long hair that goes half-way down his back. (Where's Yul when you need him?) And then there's the sexualization of asian females with the lone representative on the show being a model. (Also noticed that she was the only female of colour in the race.) They couldn't find a more physical male or a female who didn't shout "barbie doll"?

Yeah how more stereotyped can you get?! Nerdy asian guy vs super alpha males & females this season. Not very balanced.

Episode was kind of boring. Also annoyed by the casting of that Asian dude. Way to break down stereotypes

I agree with what everyone has said, disappointing with lots if stereotypes. I did like the different race partner format however they should of done it as a surprise. Start the race with teams of two like usual then split them up so they have to partner with other people. I think that would throw an entire different dynamic to the race as you'll be teamed with a stranger but will more likely work/help with your original racemate... Or would you?
