Re: The Amazing Race Season 32 (CBS) premieres 10/14/20

I loved this leg. Teams missing key details left and right, time-consuming challenges letting teams catch up and pass, and a double U-turn on an elimination leg! I also find it refreshing that most of the teams are likeable. During the long hiatus, we went back and watched old seasons on Hulu. The season with Jonathon and Victoria was practically unwatchable because so many of the teams were jerks. The only team this season annoying me so far is the one team of sisters, Michelle and Victoria. The one flies off the handle at every little thing, but I also think she's playing it up for the camera, which I find doubly annoying.

Sad to see Frank & Jerry go, but the writing was on the wall. Still, as bralph mentioned above, the episode itself was a good one.

Definitely not a parade episode which always helps. Lots of opportunities for standings shuffling. It was pretty clear that Frank & Jerry were done for the moment they got U-turned and only editing made it seem close, but still a well designed leg.

Hypothetical:

If Frank & Jerry didn't go back and just forged ahead and just did the build the roof task and not U-Turned, would there have been a penalty? Because the roof task did not require any of the stuff in the bag and it didn't seem like bringing any of the stuff to the mat was required. And would the penalty have been longer then the 60 or so minutes it took them to go back?

Only one new episode tonight instead of a double episode due to CBS adding election coverage.

Michelle and Victoria making a good comeback from last week.

That one guy always comparing his software engineering skills to the tasks is hilarious Iím sure they ask him to make comparisons so itís not his fault, but I find it funny.

I think I would have done well with the build a cello task. I canít say that for most tasks on this show haha

There's a reason many universities still have Computer Sciences in their schools of liberal arts rather than engineering. A software engineer is not an engineer in the traditional sense and those two are maybe beginning to realize that for the first time in their lives. You can be hella smart and code like a beast but that isn't the same as understanding real-world applications of science.

I'm really enjoying this season since there's no telling when we'll be able to freely travel again.

Thanks, my DVR recorded two episodes, but the second one was SWAT so I figured thatís what had happened.

The bottle challenge was tense! Iím surprised that the blondes got it in three tries after that long of a day.

I didnít really figure it was that close as the caption said they were in last, and I wasnít surprised it was non-elimination.

I was wondering the same thing about the second episode.

Those were some really hard challenges.

at the girls freaking out about being in that rundown neighborhood.

If you have Hulu Live, check the series On Demand page. Episode 32.5 is uploaded early due to last weekís scheduling error.

my reaction to episode 5 (Nov 11)
Spoiler:
Well there goes my team Michelle and Victoria. Good one leg, terrible in another. Total time in car was 6+ hours for 1.2 miles!!! Just should have parked the car in the vicinity and walked using the map,
if thatís allowed.

The carnival games looked fun.

And once again, after 32 seasons, Iíve only predicted the winner correctly one time (season 23)

Yeah, my series recording wasn't picking up tonight's episode so if you rely on that you may want to double check.

I would have stopped and asked other people for directions after 30 mins in the car. There's no way I would have spend 6 hours searching for a destination when it's less than 2 miles away....

I think a lot of DVRs did not recognize this as a "new" episode since it was scheduled for last week. CBS pulled a last-minute switch and aired SWAT in its place, but it was listed as Amazing Race.

It was entertaining seeing a team go through the whole leg completely alone thinking they were miles behind the others only to be told they weren't last when they got to the mat.

The group of racers near the top have all been consistently strong for the most part.

Yeah, my DVR recorded last week and not this week but I watched it on demand.

Too bad because I liked the team, but at least they can’t blame taxi drivers!

Yeah, that was just horrible time management and decision making to have drove around for 6 and 1/2 hours from 2 km away? Why not just hire a taxi and follow it?

Two episodes on Wednesday (Nov 18)

32.6 --- I'm Not Even Walking, I'm Falling
32.7 --- (I think episode 7 is a spoiler title)
Spoiler:
Give Me a Beard Bump

They really need to have different answers to questions on the tasks. Its really boring when everyone shares the answer. Even the Yurt task could have had a different missing item.

It's good that the blondes listened to James, but I didn't care for the blatant coercion. The alliance has some cracks showing now anyway.

Great set of episodes. Blondes making a good comeback.

Hung getting mad at Chee for being frustrated, but he was the most calm frustrated person Iíve seen on this show

DeAngelo sort of helped Hung on the sauerkraut challenge. He let her know to unscramble the letters on her first trip. They both benefited from that alliance move. I donít understand why Hung and Chee decided to stay after giving DeAngelo the answer. They should have left after that. And then DeAngelo would wait for the 3rd team to give the answer, if thatís what he wants to do for his alliance.

Well, at this point isn't everyone remaining on the show in the alliance except for the blondes? Though that's the thing I like about this show, compared to Survivor. There are alliances, but ultimately you can succeed or fail regardless of the other players. Leo and Alana blew the counting challenge, and that seems to have cost them.

I like that the players on the show seem to refer to the teams the way I think of them: Blondes, Beard Bros, Football, Boyfriends, etc.

Gary said he was feeling hot during the ďmatching hutĒ challenge, while DAngelo was cold like everyone else.

I think that was early stages of hypothermia haha

I don't think you should be allowed to share the answers with other teams. It helps to give alliances so much more power.
