Reality Check

October 20, 2006|By Sarah Kickler Kelber | Sarah Kickler Kelber,Sun Reporter

On Sunday?s The Amazing Race, the husband-and-wife team David and Mary were spared ejection when they learned it was a non-elimination leg. And then we all learned that the rules of the non-elimination leg have changed, definitely for the better. For the past several sea? sons, teams would be stripped of everything but their passports and the clothes they were wearing, which often led to begging that wasn?t too fun to watch. Now, teams get to keep their belongings and they?re ?marked for elim? ination.? If they finish the next leg first, they?re safe; any place after that, and they get a 30-minute penalty, during which some or all of the teams could finish ahead of them. This is a much more solid option. Plus, I always wondered what would happen if teams ended up having to go to Siberia without their coats.
