The Amazing Race - Season 32

Recommended Posts

Didn't someone say the winners on these shows don't get paid until the episodes air to ensure they don't blab? What, do the winners on this one really, really suck and CBS is trying to find a way to never pay them? If it was filmed in 2018 and now might maybe air this fall, that is just getting comical. Not to the racers I'm sure, but 3 hour long movies have a better turn around.

CBS now says the premiere date is 9 p.m. Oct. 14.

Of course this is something like the third premiere date that this season has had, so...grain of salt.

If you need a substitute, Eco-Challenge Fiji is on Amazon, and eco-Challenge is to the Amazing Race as Chocolate Chip Cookies are to Dog Crap.

I do find Bear Grylls to be an insufferable ass though.

I can echo jak's recommendation for Eco-Challenge Fiji on Amazon. We binged watched it in one day. Somehow, it felt right to watch people push to their extreme physical limits while I sat on a couch all day.

Gary Barnidge will forever remain in the memories of Browns fans for his using-all-appendages touchdown catch.  If not for that alone, he's amazing.  They'll be my favorite team - until, in true Browns fashion, they fumble on the 1-yard line with :12 left in the Super Bowl when they're down 4 points.

Now the catfish are not safe again.  ET says they did this show 2 years ago and the winner still has not got their money till the end of this show, that is a long time to keep a secret.

I have to wonder how many of these couples -- or even friendships -- are still together after all this time.

Definitely enjoyed seeing TAR on TV again. Some  decent casting overall, good challenges, pre-pandemic world. Fine with the Hillbillies going home, because that one guy's beard was sooooo weird! Like it was cartooned on his face. Or maybe his face is a cartoon? I don't know, just glad they are gone.

GOATS! Hung (?) faceplanting on the mat was great. "But I'm on the mat!" Then Phil yelling at everyone "YOU CAN LET THE GOAT GO NOW!" in a slightly panicked tone was funny.

I loved the goats, especially when the one guy (I don't know any of their names yet) was running AHEAD of his goat.

Still scratching my head about the team who kept having the dyslexic person doing the numbers-related challenges, but hey, they didn't come in last so there's that.

That would be the ex-Browns, Gary Barnidge......whom I didn't spot once in the previews of the season, which does not bode well for having an extremely remote Browns connection win anything.

On the one team, both have dyslexia.

I was spoiled with a few of the teams ID during filming and researched those then. And to have valuable international travel backpacking skills for TAR is something we haven’t seen before in the 31 prior seasons. 
And yes, it is ridiculous that this set of Racers had to wait nearly 700 days for their season to air. Blame the pandemic, at least in part. CBS really wanted 33 in the can before airing, and then there’s the Survivor filming mess to consider.

I thought usually, when the end of a leg wasn't really the end of a leg but "keep racing", that usually they didn't eliminate teams?
