The Amazing Race 13 -- Season Premiere -- 9/28/08

Photobucket

It's back!! It's about damn time!

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


The race begins with 11 teams departing the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and flying to Salvador, Brazil, where they must either climb up a large stone staircase on their hands and knees or climb down a 240-foot cargo net. The first pit stop is Forte São Marcelo and the last team to arrive is eliminated.

One of the contestants, Nick Spangler, has been playing the lead role in The Fantasticks here in NYC for the past year (with an April/May break to race around.) Threre are several clips of him in various roles on YouTube - very talented guy!

No. I wouldn't expect that anytime soon. With constant action and people on the move, it's a more daunting production task than with Survivor.

For a free-spirit, running trainer, that guy is kind of whiny dick who can't run very well.

They're my team to root against this season.

Yes they would. They only have nationwide (or east/central time zone) football overruns on doubleheader weekends. Most of the country only had an early game today.

I wish I knew why Ken and Tina were separated. Too bad the show never let us know.

If it isn't a CBS doubleheader Sunday (as today wasn't), they will not. That's why I gave the specific markets. Next week is a CBS DH so everyone in ET/CT needs to pad (whether or not they get a 4:15 game) for your reason.

I believe it was said they were separated because he cheated. Wait I just realized you were likely being sarcastic since they DID mention it just short or one hundred times. Fair play

Good start to the show. I think the frat boys and the southern belles are going to be one of the most annoying teams.

So far, I'm liking the comic book shop guys.

Apparently Santa doesn't give a shit when it's not Christmas.

Does anyone really blame that guy for cheating on Tina? After 20 minutes of her nagging, even I wanted to bang a hooker.

All I could figure is that if they were to divorce, Ken would lose alot of his assets since he was the cheater. Otherwise, if I were Ken, I'd cut my losses and move on, Tina ain't no prize in the personality department.

I wonder if TAR would ever consider putting together pairs of strangers with some weird common interest or extraneous connection between them.

Seriously, this guy was a complete Jerk. I don't see any free spirit at all.

No surprise at the first team out.

I like Starr, although Starr Spangler, her parents must have had a sense of humour..

Glad to have the race back..

I googled her. Her first name is actually Emily. She went by Starr (her middle name) when she was a Cowboy's cheerleader though.
