Team Preppy Blogs

Does anyone else love watching the Amazing Race on Sunday nights as much as me? I love that show! When I was a kid my favorite activity at birthday parties was a scavenger hunt through the neighborhood. I doubt kids still do those. Probably too dangerous to send kids galavanting about the neighborhood. Which is terribly sad. But another topic for another time. This season the cast members are so much better than the last few seasons. I never root for the teams where people are mean or rude or mean or yell a lot. They bug me and I always hope they get knocked off first. This season I love love the mother and deaf son as well as the gay father/son team. How cute was Mel last night getting second because he paid attention to the directions?!! I have no desire to be famous or have 15 minutes in the spotlight, but I would go on that show in a skinny minute because it just looks so fun! They travel the globe, do these incredible tasks and usually have a great time.

So I got to thinking last night when I finally sat down to watch the show, after running around like a crazy woman for a week straight. Who would be my teammate when I go on that show? And of course no one came to mind. Everyone I know is busy with boys and babies. And of course you can't just have anyone as your partner. You need to think about your angle. It's all about the tag line. Like the mother and son- the son is deaf- that makes them interesting. Mel and Mike- old father and screen writer son who are both gay- that makes them interesting. So then I thought, how funny would it be if there was a team who met via blogs. It will be me (of course, my idea!) and you (preppy blog pal) and our tag line will say "preppy blog friends." And we could pack matching (people like to be matchy matchy on that show) Lilly polos and ribbon headbands. Cute yet functional. I really think this could work. Surely stranger things have happened in the world of silly reality shows!

I'm only kidding of course. Sort of. Not really. Anyone want to be my AR partner? It's funny to think about anyway.

I am there with you! I have wanted to be on the amazing race so many times! I am not a religious watcher or anything, but everytime I watch it I want to be on it! Ha! I would totally be your partner!

I remember when the show first started me and a friend were determined to be on it. We both set off to learn different languages so if we ever got picked we'd have an advantage over the other teams... well, we never did apply to be on the show, but I do know Japanese now! HAHAHA!
;D

Hopsy (from Monograms and Manicurea) is the gal for you! She would be GREAT and she has traveled a lot too (those people always do better).

I love Amazing Race too! I'm not all that adventurous (I would have been out at the bungee jump in episode 1!), but I love seeing all the amazing places they go to. I also like that it's more of a feel-good reality show than others like Survivor.

I would love to do it!!! I watch each Sunday night and really enjoy trying to figure out how I would do on the road blocks and navigating the countries!!! Our puppies could even keep each other company while we are out racing around the world!

My husband is HUGE Amazing Race fan and has actually sent in videos about 3-4 times. We were just talking about the show last night. That's one of his dreams...to be on the Amazing Race!
