by Lyn Jensen So the final episode of The Amazing Race season 27 has aired, a showdown between three of the least appealing couples in the show’s history:  two teams of Bickersons plus one glamour couple (TV reporters yet) whose biggest move was U-turning an ally. While we wait and hope for an extraordinary season 28, let’s revisit the season 27 finale. […]

The Amazing Race: Season 27, India, 11/20/15

November 23rd, 2015 · Comments Off on The Amazing Race: Season 27, India, 11/20/15

by Lyn Jensen Consensus among fans appears that season 27 of The Amazing Race may feature the weakest cast ever. Bickersons Justin/Diana (the Green Team) are winning all legs but two so far, and the other teams don’t show much ability to be competitive or even engaging. It’s similar to season 20, when Bickersons Rachel/Dave […]

As the leg begins, eight teams travel from Argentina to Africa and Victoria Falls–a destination that host Phil Keoghan calls one of […]

by Lyn Jensen As the second episode of The Amazing Race, Season 27, begins, ten teams all catch the same flight from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
