The Amazing Race 16 -- Season Premiere -- "Nanna is Kickin' Your Butt" -- 2/14/10

The Amazing Race 16

The Race Begins tonight in Los Angeles and heads to Chile.

Synopsis:


The 16th edition of the reality series begins in Los Angeles with 11 teams navigating the city's busy streets to find public transportation to the airport, where they will board a flight to Chile. One team is eliminated from the race.
CBS has Golf at 3pm ET. There is a slim possibility that you may need to pad in case it runs long or goes into a playoff.

Because CTV in Canada is showing the Winter Olympics for the next three Sundays, I'll have to record CBS
so its the "padding situation" for me. It may be "un-American" to not watch CBS - but I record/watch CTV
since AR always started at 8:00 pm ET and there was no worries about a LIVE event (football/golf/basketball)
running over and pushing AR back like what happens on CBS.

Anyone in Canada know if AR is being shown on another Canadian channel? or are you force to watch it either
on CBS there or online if CBS is blacked out?

Update/Edit: A channel called /A\ is picking up the CTV programs and showing them while CTV is covering the
Olympics. AR will be shown in its regular time slot of 8:00 pm ET-9:00 pm ET on Sundays. I'm not sure if AR will
be blackout on CBS up there because of this. You can also watch the episodes online at ctv.ca

LB....

They do not blackout the CBS telecast up here but thanks for the heads up that the A Channel will be broadcasting the show while the Olympics are on.

I just hope that I don't get bored with this one as I did with the previous one.

Yeah I made that mistake last season. There is always something on CBS that can run over on Sunday night pretty much all year around.

Is this going to be in HD yet?

I can't wait to see if Jordan is still obsessed with poop.

Airheads annoy me, so I'm already hoping that the Miss Teen USA and Big Brother skanks go early.

Does it bother anyone else that they start every race in LA now?

Why? The Production Offices of The Amazing race are based in Los Angeles. This is already one of the most expensive competition shows on TV and they already spend a fortune on travel costs.

I love the out of shape people who do this show. What do they expect to happen?

Lots of weak/stupid teams this season. Jordan is a real dumbass, but she's good comic relief.

Are there really places in the country where names like "Jet" and "Cord" are acceptable?

That was a pathetic display by the Black couple. He's obviously too big to have done it in the first place. The wife should have done it.

The wife bothered me, she maybe it was the bad lighting but it looked like she had a mustache. I thought it funny that someone knew who the Miss Teen was and knew what she said!

No real favorites to root for. I guess I will root for the father & daughter and the grandmom & granddaughter teams for now. Can't stand the gay brothers. The detective team suck. The gayish cowboy team suprised me with how they came from last to 3rd. Jordan is a bimbo. Miss South Carolina seem OK for now.

I had no idea Miss South Carolina was one of the competitors. I'm hoping she either completely erases or completely validates the "Maps of like such as the Iraq" picture I had of her. So far, she seems surprisingly competent ... except for the hugely incompetent funicular moment.

Coy and Vance were hilarious. The whole "Oh yeah, we meant to get Brazilian money because that was all they had" bit was hilarious. Did they really think they were fooling us? Guys, the cameras were rolling when you walked up to the currency exchange and asked for Brazilian money. We know what really happened. My other favorite moment was when they got in the cab and started saying "andale" and the cab driver gave the camera this look like "Do these fools know any words that they didn't learn from a cartoon mouse?"

I'm enjoying this lineup a lot. Never would have guessed Jeff and Jordan to come in first, but they were consistently at the top this leg and very cool, calm and collected.

Painting inside the house. So far, I'm not really rooting for any particular team.

I totally LOL twice at Allie painting the inside wall of the house, and the worker guys not knowing why some crazy white chick was painting the walls.

How is Ellen Degeneres doing TAR and American Idol?

She reminds me of a cross between Ellen and Jayne Lynch.
