The Amazing Race: All Stars

http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race11/

You could have probably assembled a better cast by reaching into a hat of names. Not feeling this season. I have a bit of love for the Cha Cha Chas (Oswald and Danny), but not much. Their laid back approach can often be frustrating.

Ten Things Wrong With This Cast:

1) David and Mary - What the hell? This is All Stars. Why put a team on the race that we know has no shot in hell?

2) Eric and Danielle - A mix up team? Come on now. CBS just didn't want Eric/Jeremy because they're sick of the male teams constantly winning. Boo!

3) Charla and Mirna - The most loathsome team to ever race. Charla's sense of entitlement due to her disability and Mirna's constant bickering (and inappropriate name calling) really make me scratch my head as to why they have such a huge fan base. Now, the only way they'll win this race is if production does everything they can to make the tasks less physical. Hell, they've already cast a bunch of mostly inept racers, so the odds are already more in their favor then in TAR5.

4) John and Jill - What the hell? I love Season 3, don't get me wrong. It was the finest ever. Great route, the greatest team (Flo/Zach), but them? One of the least interesting duos in the early years. Why are they here? Well, Erika from Big Brother (yes, that Erika), does the casting for this nonsense. And guess who she is friends with? Bingo. As if casting boring winners such as Aras and Tyler/James (the former attended her yoga class, the latter are friends of Aras) was bad enough......well, there was also letting the reprehensible Boogie win BB: All Stars......christ, can we give Erika the title of Worst Reality Person Ever?

5) Uchenna and Joyce - Right, no Rob/Brennan? Or Flo/Zach? Or Chip/Kim? Or Freddy/Kendra? She shaved her head in TAR7 big deal. It looked better that way.

6) A lack of representation. Nobody from TAR4? Sure, Kelly/Jon reportedly backed out at the last minute, but I'm sure Millie/Chuck or the Clowns would have been up for it. How about one of the most exciting seasons (albeit with a not-so-well-liked cast), TAR6? Hayden/Aaron or Kris/Jon weren't around? Hell, the oh-so twisted Jonathan would have been nice since Colin isn't here (Christie is pregnant). Then there's the family edition. Yeah, it blew, but Mama Paolo was television gold. And you're telling me that they couldn't have expanded the All Star cast from 11, yet had room for 12 teams on TAR10?

7) Rob/Amber. Great racers, although it annoyed me that TAR7 became "Stop Rob and Amber!".......however, they are Survivor contestants. NOT the first names I think of when pondering "who are my favorite past racers?"....A ratings gimmick well past its time.

8) No Blake/Paige? Surely they would have been up for it. That's an entertaining, likeable team. And isn't that what the producers are going for?

9) Teri/Ian are evil. I swear. Ian was mean to my precious Flo if you don't recall.

10) The fact that this is called All Stars.

I can't stand Charla and Mirna, and I am so sick of Rob and Amber. I like Uchenna and Joyce though...and Teri and Ian. Some of the others I'm not remembering so well.

Yep, that's them. Probably the fan favorites of Season 2. I liked them, but I was more into Tara/Wil (bickering divorcee couple that lost at the finish line), Blake/Paige (sibling duo with hints of incest), and Team Domination (two highly funny dweebs).

I'm not a huge fan of all the "All-Stars," this round, but it's TAR, and it's my favourite show, so I will be glued to the TV come Feb. 18th!

I hate Rob and Amber !! I hated Flo and Zach too, especially Flo.

All-Stars are jumping the shark material along with themes. Survivor and Big Brother went this route already and it sucked so why not have the third great reality show shoot itself in the foot too?

Ok, I just checked out the website and the teams, umm, yeah, have fun with that. I'm waiting until the fall season.

I thought reality tv was all Rob and Ambuh'd out... I guess not.

I'd say Danny and Oswald will be my favs on this one.

I will wait to watch it before making any comments. Some of the reality shows are ok, some not so much. And some of the Celebrity All Star shows are ok then some are not so much.

Ok, I don't make a habit out of watching reality tv shows (the last season of this show being one of the few exceptions), but even I know who Rob and Amber are, and if they are going to be on this season, they suck worse than those Barbies so I might have to sit this one out.

Ok, I gave it a chance but Rob and Amber and the fact that I hated more of the teams than I liked, I turned it off about half an hour into it.

Did I mention I couldn't stomach watching Rob and Amber? Enjoy the season viewers!!

And the Barbies are on this season, too.

See you in the fall, TAR.

As long as Oswald and Danny are in, I'll watch. Unless I wind up hating them this time.

So far they're still awesome .
