“Eat the wasabi!”

Yes, tonight marks the premiere of one of my favourite reality tv shows – The Amazing Race!  Airing Sundays at 8pm on CBS, the show has teams of 2 racing around the world to earn a million dollars.

From the very beginning, this race starts off differently than most.  One team is elimintated before they even start during a license plate challenge at the start line.  I thought the license plates were a good idea – it got the teams used to paying attention to detail right off the bat.  Hopefully this will help the teams down the road when other clues require them to be very observant!

I LOVED the fact that the first stop in the race was Japan.  My sister has been to Japan before, and I’m sure she could tell you that Japan is an amazing country filled with wonderful sights and sounds!  The fact that the first road block involved a Japanese game show that required contestants to eat a wasabi bomb while the audience cheered them on was so freaking cool!  The Japanese are reknowned for their crazy game shows, and the energy coming from this particular challenge was a great way to kick off the first episode!

Right off the bat, I have a couple of favourite teams.  The basketball players, Flight Time and Big Easy, are totally cool, not to mention really, really tall!  I also like the brothers Sam and Dan, and Mika and Canaan (they seemed to be trying to speak Japanese, which is really respectful). 

I can’t say I’m too crazy about the poker players, Maria and Tiffany.  I don’t like the fact that they lied to the other teams about their jobs.  Right away they’ve been arguing, and I just don’t see them getting too far if they continue to argue and lose focus.  

So, readers, what do you think?  How do you think this season will play out, and who are your favourite teams?
