"Amazing Race" time

It's funny watching the credits for the "Amazing Race" and see people and say "Oh yeah, I forgot they were on the show". The 2 teams for me are the Muslim team that was eliminated after about 5 mins and the married Indian couple who was eliminated about 10 minutes later. Anyway, thank goodness the Cho's are starting to not wait for 'Bama who is turning into one of my least favorite teams. And judging by the previews next week, it will only grow. Do Rob and Kim have a "Babe" quota as to how many times they need to say it in one episode? Do they get some prize? They even call each other that when they are yelling at each other, "YOU'RE WRONG...BABE!!" Rob does have a flair for the dramatic as everytime they miss a taxi, bus, train or plane he exclaims 'That's it, we're done" or some other variation. The show is getting interesting and I'm waiting on the edge of my seat for Rob to blow a gasket and either throw Kim out of a moving car or tackle a team that is ahead of them on the run to a Pit Stop. I'm giving 10 to 1 odds that he'll do one or the other.

AS for my friend Doug, he asked to talk about his show "The Duel" on MTV. Eventhough he never mentions me in his blog...I'm not bitter. There are a few things that I never won't to hear in life:
1. "You're under arrest"
2. "President John Kerry"
3. "You're going against Derek in ..."
I think you should be able to check him for weapons if you're playing him in Monopoly, more or less a competition with a huge monetary compensation. I'm wating for him to pull a knife out and shank somebody soon. When you are picked for this show do they send you a letter that reads the following:
You've been picked to be on "The Duel"! Please meet us at Abercrombie & Fitch to get what you'll be wearing while you're on the show. The accompanying Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue will show you how to wear your clothes while on camera.
This episode was the usual "You don't want to mess with me in the duel, blah, blah, blah" I would have to say that Diem is a favorite to go far as she is a cancer survivor and it seems like nobody wants to challenge her. Is Beth over 40? Best part of the episode was watching people fall in the water. And finally, I'm sure TJ Lavin is a nice guy in real life, but I think a glass of waer could do the same job.
