If I were to go on a reality show, it would be Amazing Race. Imagine, they pay you to travel around the world and see new places. Granted it's at a faster pace that "If It's Tuesday This Must be Belgium", but still... I'm good at reading maps and following directions, got a fairly cast iron stomach, think logically, don't panic, know at least a little bit of several other languages. On the other hand, I'm in lousy shape so I'd have to do some serious working out before I'd even think of trying. And I would absolutely require a partner who can handle heights and drops because that's one big weakness! Hey, I'll do the eating challenges if you'll do the climbing and dropping ones! Anybody game?

I love watching Amazing Race!!! Some of the things, I say to myself, "I could do that!" and other I say, "There is no way I would do that." I think it would be fun, but I would be scared of what I might have to do!! It might be worth it though!

I love the Amazing Race show and have not missed a single week so far but now they are coming to an end already. Over here we get to watch the American Amazing Race as well as Amazing Race Asia and both are equally thrilling and exciting to watch. If I were to join that race, I would have problems with eating some yucky stuffs like bugs and crawly creatures. I might still be able to do it but it would take a long time and probably after vomiting my guts out before I could get that done. The other thing that would pose a problem for me is height. I would be okay if I am high in an enclosed space but to go out to the ledge of a tower, for example, would just make me drop on my belly within seconds. Other than that, they can throw at me anything and I do not see any problem such as physical stuffs, map reading, clue finding and so on and so forth. What we need is a partner who are mentally and physically strong in order to go through the pace of that race. Cheers!

In some ways it's like Survivor. It's a race around the world, but where Survivor is for individuals, Amazing Race is for teams of two. They do challenges like Survivor and the eliminate a team almost every week, but it's done in different countries, so the run into language problems in addition to everything else. It's great fun!
