    You've seen all the lazy black people who can't swim on Survivor, right?

    It would look a lot like that, I think.

    Considering the wide range of gay people that have been shown on Amazing Race over the years (married minister, father/son, Guidos, Youtube, etc.), I think you are currently stereotyping the producers.

    Has Joey of Youtube said he is gay?

    Even if he is, I'm not sure his squealing is TAR stereotyping, but rather him squealing. Are they just supposed to not show it? Maybe I'm stereotyping by assuming that is what is being talked about...


    I agree with Rogue that they've shown a really wide range of gay people on the show. I don't think there was a common link in behavior among them all. They've also had at least a few gay racers whose "label" hasn't had anything to do with being gay. Youtube may be one example, unless I missed where he said he was. One of the Chippendales was gay, and I don't think that was ever mentioned.

    I don't mind that there is a 'hook' of being a gay couple on this show, because there is also a hook of being a straight couple. Being a couple is something that can get you on the show. Same as "Judgemental Dad with gay son", well "Conservative Mom with adventurous daughter" can also get you on the show- so it doesn't seem like gay is something they stereotype and exploit.

    Same with Keisha of the Sistahs.

    My daughter used to subscribe to Joey and Meghan's YouTube show and sometimes forced me to watch, and what you see on TAR is what you get on the YouTube show, too. That's him. He's enthusiastic and dramatic; he does voices and squeals and spazzes while Meghan is steady and straightforward and smiles a lot.

    So maybe TAR could refrain from casting people who fit stereotypes (except that it's hard to tell such a fast-paced story without easy characters), but I don't think they are portraying him in any way other that who he is, whether he is gay or not.

    When I see Joey, I don't see gay. I just see annoying.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Me, too. I see someone who wants to make sure he gets a lot of air time!

    Bates and Anthony are Even with all the watercraft around them, there could have been a croc in the river. That took courage. The poor country girls are screwed.

    Mrs. Mullet needs to catch a plane back home. I've no idea why she thought coming on the show was a good idea or why the producers chose her over other applicants.

    The goats are adorable.

    I think the country singers are getting the auf'ed edit. "God is awesome and we can only go as far in the race as He wants us to go." This might be it, ladies.

    Although Wynnona must be really regretting not doing some of the easier roadblocks.

    Yay for Bates & Anthony winning another leg.

    Wyona sure complains about everything. And was that squabble by the Roller moms the first sign on them not being so nice?!

    I missed it. What happened to Max and Katie's car? (not the speeding ticket, the accident? or something?)

    Looking up for the country girls.

    edit: never mind. The replay showed them backing into a pole. Hee.

    Pam and Winnie : I can't believe they thought a rhino was a hippo. That's too bad.

    And cheese wheels in two weeks.

    Although I like chuck and wynnona it cracks me up that he appreciates Africa by pointing out how much he wants to kill all the animals.

    How sad to loose Pam & Winnie on a mental task that Chuck and Wynona did!

    Oh well now that they are out I can just root for Bates & "I'm missing my front teeth" Anthony!

    I thought so, too, but they've actually been racing really well.

    I couldn't tell if they missed the one silhouette the second time.
