Let's see a show of hands, who watched The Amazing Race last night? I know, I know you are questioning why I would watch a show that seems like something my mom would watch (true story, she's a big fan and got me hooked), which is precisely why I want to get you all hooked too!
Let me give you a quick synopsis of the show. Teams of two travel all over the world following clues and doing challenges and tasks that are both really hard, and hilarious to watch. It's basically like a gigantic scavenger hunt with a million dollar prize at the end. Sounds pretty sweet right?
Remember a few J-14 issues back we did a story about YouTube stars, and we highlighted KevJumba? Well he and his father are one of the teams! They did pretty well last night and luckily were not the first team eliminated.
The show is fully equipped with some pretty funny duos, specifically the team of two Ivy League guys who also happened to be in the a capella group. They are super cute, a little nerdy, but most importantly break into song. Some of the other teams have even given them the nickname Team Glee.
I hope you guys will give The Amazing Race a try, it's on at 8 p.m. on Sunday nights on CBS. It won't disappoint. Who doesn't love a little adventure right before the school week begins again?
Until next time!
