    Are there any other fans of The Amazing Race here? I reckon it's the best show ever!

    This thread is for discussing anything related to The Amazing Race, including international versions.

    So who is everyone's all time favourite and least favourite teams? What seasons did you think were the best? Who do you want to be in the next all-stars season?

    And what did everyone think of season 22? I thought it was a great season, and I was so glad that Bates & Anthony won, who became my favourite team after Dave & Connor got eliminated. I just hope they bring back Dave & Connor for the next all-stars season, because I think they'd have a good chance at winning, considering they won two legs in a row while Dave was on crutches!

    I'm a huge fan of The Amazing Race and thought the season premiere got off to a great start.

    I like this show, Globetrotters are my favourite, and the Cowboys. Not enough eye candy this season, and I'm really not sure about the blind date teams and all the rest being dating teams. Still, good to change it up a bit, I guess...

    Time to bring back my old thread, cause I just finished season 31 and am completely up to date now. I’m disappointed Becca & Floyd or Leo & Jamal didn’t win, but at the same time, I was happy to see Colin & Christie win. Imagine getting a call back 15 years later to come back on the show, and then winning it. Team Fun is the best team I’ve seen in years, and I hope they bring them back for the next all-stars season.

    Speaking of the next all-stars season, if I had to pick all of the 11 teams to come back I’d go for: Becca & Floyd (s29/31), Matt & Redmond (s29), London & Logan (s29), Alex & Connor (s30), Hayley & Blair (s26), Seth & Olive (s29), Tara & Joey (s29), Aly & Steve (s26), Ernest & Jin (s27), Chris & Bret (s31), and Nicole & Victor (s31).

    We were pulling for Team Fun but were okay with Colin & Christie winning. Not our favorite team to win but certainly had teams we were like less win too.

    surely not every race is amazing is it? aren't there sometimes just some moderately OK races?

    Did anyone watch the latest season that just finished today? That was the worst season yet. The alliance just ruined the experience for the other contestants and us viewers at home. I wanted the NFL players or the blonde sisters to win, but they got done so dirty.

    So to answer the guy above me a year later - yes, there are some moderately ok races.

    I just got into this show this fall, mostly because there was no Survivor. I've watched most seasons 1-12 and the current season 32 at this point. So no spoilers for those other seasons!

    But I will say... While they do need to fix how easy it is for an alliance to break a challenge, exploiting it was perfectly within the rules. I don't blame the teams I blame the production.

    I did cry at the end of this season though, happy tears for that proposal ... I passed this on to the winning team via Reddit and they were appreciative since they've gotten a lot of hate.

    Glad you’re enjoying the show! I think it was at it’s best between seasons 10-20, give or take a few. The latest seasons just don’t have as many memorable teams as they used to. Heck even season 1 had those hilarious frat brothers, Kevin and Drew, who are still one of the most memorable to this day.
