Amazing Race 14

Recommended Posts

Watched this last night on tape -- what a leg! Surprises all around, such as the fact that Victor and Tammy left Beijing at 9:15, five hours before Jamie and Cara (2:05). Talk about dominance... even though they all took the same flight to Hawaii. I'm just saying...

Then, a masterful leg by Margie and Luke -- I really hoped they'd win, and they powered through the whole thing to the end. A perfect task for Luke too, and I felt badly for him. But you have to hand it to Victor and Tammy... I was quite annoyed with him after his long walk in the woods in Romania, but he really redeemed himself.

And who would have believed that Jamie and Cara could have managed as much grace as they did in the final? (Gracelessness, too, but we know that's there...) Nice touch, to help Luke at the end.

There have been races with more memorable individuals, but this was good all-around viewing.

Does anyone know if second-place is worth anything? Third-place? Do all competitors get something (besides the experience)?

That's a bit underwhelming. I mean, Kisha and Jen go through with a hellish swimming event, survive another leg and earn another $500 each (if, in fact, they moved up another place in the standings that week - can't remember). No wonder the networks love reality shows!

Plus, a month of vacation, including a trip around the world. I don't know about you, but for me, $3000 for a month is more than my salary.
