The Amazing Race is the only television show that I dislike. The reason that I do not dislike any other shows is that I have not watched any other shows enough to dislike them. But I only had to watch the first half of one episode to amazing race to dislike it intensely.
For those of you who are as out of touch with U.S. popular culture as I am, the idea of the show is that couples race through many of the world most beautiful and interesting places. Before they can go on to the next place they have to complete some ridiculous task. Whoever gets to the finish faster wins.
Here’s a clip that I found online that will give you more than enough of an idea.
To sum up, The Amazing Race is to a worthwhile vacation what an all the hotdogs you can eat contest is to fine dining.
So the show I would like to see would be an anti Amazing Race. I’m calling it The Race to Amazing. The idea is that travelers would spend time in a beautiful interesting place where their experiences would be recorded on video. The winner would be the person who has the most profound amazing experiences.
I don’t know how this could be brought about. But if the idea resonates with you, please let me know and share your ideas about how it could be made into a reality. After all they do call it a reality show.
