Amazing Race - The Ronald Is A Lunatic Episode

I haven’t figured out the best way to arrange my comments yet, so let me know if this makes sense or seems disjointed to you.

Hoist it or Hunt it – At first glance, I’d definitely pick Hoist It. Seems like it would go quickly. Oh, but there are all sorts of knots they have to do. Hmmm...maybe Hunt It instead?

Nicholas and Donald – I loved when Nicholas called Kynt “Pinkie.” Oh, holy night, Gramps stripped down to his Speedo to jump the ditch. Can you please tell me why Gramps had on a Speedo to begin with? Ugh. “My Grandpa made it over the river, showing that anger and frustration pays off in the end.”

Ronald and Christina – Wow, he really went off on Nicolas for being rude in the airport, didn’t he? Maybe Nicholas was rude; he was definitely aggressive. I just don’t understand why Ronald got so upset when it didn’t have anything at all to do with him.

I’m starting to think that Ronald may be a little crazy. He’s wasting time ranting and...WOW, yeah, he’s definitely crazy. Totally in left field. Hopefully it’s temporary, cause WOW. And hello, dude, this is a race, so stopping in the road to make sure your daughter understands exactly how little you respect her isn't good game...or very human, for that matter!

Oh my goodness, and he can’t even shut his trap long enough for her to jump the ditch. He wants her to stand there listening to him degrade her instead of trying the jump again. Unbelievable.

TK and Rachel – So glad they didn’t start yelling at each other over Hoist It. I think it’s pretty funny that she had to go down and finish the challenge. And she’s not the only chick who hauled that stuff, either! These girls are strong!

Lorena and Jason – Things seemed ridiculously easy for them on this leg of the Race. They hauled that furniture like pros, and then he flew over that ditch quick, didn’t he?

Well that’s it for this week, folks. Tune in next week when Ronald sinks further into a parallel universe where it’s okay to berate someone for Every Single Thing They Do, and then rant some more when they ask you to stop.

The Amazing Race!

Here we are for another exciting season of The Amazing Race! I was so excited when I realized the season was premiering early. Here are my impressions of the teams, in no certain order.

Nathan and Jennifer – These two have got to stop bitching at each other. Also, please stop calling K & V “The Freaks.” That’s just rude. They really upset their donkey, too. Not spreading a lot of love, these guys.

Azaria & Hendekea – So far I like ‘em.

TK & Rachel – I hope they’re as nice as they look

Ronald & Christina – Like ‘em. They seem sweet!

Kynt & Vykxin – I’m already tired of them talking about their Gothness. Get over yourselves, please. I want to like you, so please stop annoying me.

Donald & Nicholas – Like ‘em, but they’ve got to get it together. There’s no sense of urgency here.

Staella and Ari – Also mistreating the donkey. Which came back and bit ‘em in the butt. Disappointing, because I thought they might be fun to watch this season.

The rest of the teams – Eh. Nobody else really struck me one way or the other.

Okay, so there’s no one that I really dislike so far. Hopefully Nathan and Jennifer will chill out a bit, and K & V will get over themselves.

I can’t wait till next week!

Wow, it would be so much easier to blog TV if I had a laptop. You know what, I almost went and bought that Secret Friday Acer at Wal-Mart, but decided to wait and see if a better one comes along before Christmas. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
