Team members must be at least 8 years old? Damn, that's young. That must be some sort of reality-show record.

Not all of them - there was that one little girl who was up on the hanging beams and had to grab those flags in the wind - most patient and controlled contestant ever. She was up there for over thirty minutes and got all of the flags. Her dipstick of a father was up there less than five minutes before he fell. Then the wind died not long after she finished and the remaining teams made it through relatively quick. She was heartbroken - and I have never seen Joe so sad about sending anybody home. He said it was the greatest performance he had ever seen by a man, woman or child in the show's history. She was amazing - I was hoping to see her compete during the rest of the show.

Keep in mind they are only interested in couples in abusive relationships. Sane people need not apply :P

It must be reality show audition week here. Just yesterday they held auditions for The Apprentice (both for The Donald and Martha Stewart). People started lining up at 7:30pm and there was a line wrapped around the NBC building by morning.

Anyway, Amazing Race would be pretty cool to do. I think I could do fairly well but I just don't have the inclination or the time.
