Watched the finale of Amazing race last night. I blogged about the last series finale here and about some stuff that annoyed me last series as well here.
Freddie and kkkKendra won this one. Damn! It was a bit disappointing as I've rooted against kkkKendra since her first 'this place is wretched and all they keep doing is breeding and breeding' comment when they were in Africa. Oh did that ever get me upset.
Oh well! Sometimes the bad guys do win. This series was funny though. Lots of disfunctional families involved. I actually like this show though even though I'm not a big fan of the reality genre and the reason why I like it is mainly watching them travel to all these great exotic locales. Its always interesting to see how an American like kkkKendra will react when taken out of the U.S. Like whenever they go to Asia folks get mad because the taxi drivers don't speak English. Well you are in China or South Korea or wherever, it is their country, they are not required to speak your language. Duhh! When they come to your country do you speak their language? No? Alright then just shut up and deal with it.
This season I didn't like the fact that they tried to make it more 'sexy' (almost every woman was wearing low cut shirts all season long) and somehow the show seemed to favor the "prettier contestants". Then they had a one or two Fear Factor type moments making contestants eat pure nastiness that I thought was silly.
Of course the funny part of the finale for me was watching eliminated couple Hayden and Erin as Hayden proposed to her after they got eliminated. Dude was all on some she's perfect rah rah rah ish and I don't mind losing the race I still have you crap. Please! I'm no mind reader but I know if I was him I would be thinking 'chupse, looka how we get so close to the end an dis igrant, stupid woman gone an throw way de race when we did close ta de million dollars'.
Anyway as he said his little speech on his knees I was thinking hey Hayden did we just watch completely different shows. Did you not have like the most frustrating day of your life and alot of it have to do with this woman freaking out at every interval in the race. Were you watching how high strung she is? She panics at the slightest sign of trouble. Are you sure that's who you ant to be with for the rest of your life. I mean do you really think if the crap hits the fan she's going to have your back Bonnie and Clyde style? You do realize you're now saying you want to put up with her for the rest of your life? Ok suit yourself. But hey who am I to judge I married someone who's actively trying to bump me off.
Anyways I think I'm watching too much tv these days. sigh!
Oh for those interested PBS is putting on part one of its slavery documentary tonight. Should be pretty interesting even if they do water it down. Not sure what time its on but hopefully it doesn't affect my watching the SI swimsuit finale so I can report back to you on whether Alicia or Shannon (found out her name the other day) won.
