Reality Check

April 17, 2007|By Sarah Kickler Kelber | Sarah Kickler Kelber,Sun Columnist

I can't remember seeing so many airport troubles in so few episodes of The Amazing Race. Sunday saw Eric and Danielle finishing last after attempting to exchange money instead of confirming their spots on a standby list. Last week, Uchenna and Joyce were eliminated after taking a chance on a tight connection in Germany, which they missed and never recovered from. And in the previous two episodes, Eric and Danielle and Joe and Bill got an entire leg behind after difficulties making connections.

It's been dramatic, but it's more fun to spend the airtime on the tasks, not negotiations with airport personnel. I'm hoping for an end to this particular trend as we head toward the end of the "all-star" season.
