The Amazing Race Winners!!

December 11, 2006 by  

Who won THE AMAZING RACE? Was it Margie & Luke? Cara & Jamie? or Victor & Tammy? To find out click here: Who Won The Amazing Race? (May 10, 2009)


Tyler and James named winners of The Amazing Race

I know I really don’t talk about The Amazing Race too much on GMMR, but it’s one of my can’t miss shows of the week. Unfortunately, it falls on Sunday, and Sunday’s are usually my come back home after a weekend away-still feeling the effect of Saturday night – not wanting to think about the week ahead – day, and I don’t blog that much.  But I did watch all season, and I was VERY excited to see models and ex-druggies Tyler and James take home the $1M prize. I loved Tyler and James, and I thought there game play was consistent throughout the whole season.  There’s nothing worse than having lying, cheating, screaming asshats win…ugh.  But Tyler and James were a lot of fun (but PLEASE don’t ask me which one is Tyler and which on is James, because I still haven’t figured it out.)
The Amazing Race continues to be the most well produced and most exciting reality show on TV.  The first ever Amazing Race All Star Edition will be starting soon (although I can’t find out exactly when).  I have heard rumors that contestants will include this season’s David & Mary (the coalminers) as well as the most hated couple in reality TV (not in my house though) Boston Rob and Amber Mariano.  Actually, the distinction of most hated reality TV couple probably goes to former Amazing Race contestants Jonathan and Victoria.  Let’s hope they aren’t on the All Star Edition, because that is enough to make me skip it all together.

Do you all watch The Amazing Race?  Let me know, because if you do, I’ll start covering it on Give Me My Remote.

    I heard Joyce and Uchenna, winners of the Rob/Amber season, were going to be competing in the All Stars season. Even though I really loved them I wish they’d give people who haven’t won already a chance.

    My absolute favorite pair ever is Kristen and Jon. I was disappointed when they didn’t win. I don’t think they’ll be on the All Star season but I would root for them again in a heart beat!

    I love “The Amazing Race”…if you watch Fox Reality…on “Reality Remix” w/ Kennedy…they usually have a recap from Lynn and Alex (guys from a few seasons ago) on after each show, and they are funny and have good insights to what is going on. I loved Rob and Amber…I know some people didn’t like them, but they were clever and fun to watch! I love Rob’s accent, too!

    I love the Amazing Race! I was so happy that James and Tyler won (and I can’t tell them apart either), they were a great team to root for. And it is always nice to have cute boys to watch the whole season! 🙂

    I’m also with you about Rob and Amber-they were my favorite team that season (probably because I liked them from Survivor). They were a couple who didn’t yell and scream at each other and were really creative in how they ran the race. I remember being mad that they didn’t win.

    Can’t wait for an all star edition!! 🙂

    Both Rob & Amber (yay!) as well as Charla and Mirna (boo!) have been confirmed for All Stars (which started racing from Miami last month I believe), and there is rumor that the blonde beauty queens from this season will join the David & Mary as well on All Stars. They probably asked them to be on it back before they knew people were going to start to hate them, ugh!

    Anyway, I love love love TAR, but I have to say that last night was the LAMEST season finale of any reality competition show I have ever seen. All they did was run from one train to the next and from plane to taxi to plane with no final “challenge” before hitting the mat. Boooooring! I loved how they had to organize the countries’ flags before running to the finish in last season’s finale. It was both a physical and a mental task. Hopefully they’ll make next season a little more exciting.

    FYI, Tyler from the infamous BJ & Tyler duo has a cameo in the new film “The Pursuit of Happyness” starring Will Smith.

    The Amazing Race is one of my favorite shows, but I haven’t watched at all this season. Sundays were bad TV nights this fall as I was usually stuck in my truck driving to Memphis every other week.

    Rob and Amber were the best racers to NOT have won in my opinion, so it’ll be good to see them get another shot at it.

    Also, even though they won already, BJ & Tyler are the definition of All-Stars.

    P.S. Dude on the right up there looks like Chris Keller (from One Tree Hill – don’t know his real name).

    Yes, I definately think you should start blogging about the Amazing Race; you said it yourself: it is the best reality show by far on television and deserves as much press as possible. Plus, who isn’t excited about an All-Star season?

    In our house Rob and Amber are adored as well! They were totally robbed that season on The Amazing Race (I mean come on, when have you EVER seen them turn a place BACK to the terminal for someone…seriously!) I hope they are on All-Stars because I miss seeing them on TV.

    I’m glad Tyler and James won. They definately played the best game and won a lot of first place prizes too. And I can’t tell them apart either.

    Thanks for the Amazing Race wrap! I love TAR…but didn’t it used to be on Tuesdays? That was wayyy better. I’m looking forward to the All Stars and have watched every season of TAR. BJ and Tyler were my favorites, and I hope they are in the All Star Edition! Great Job GMMR! I hope you do find time to cover The Amazing Race.
    P.S. I think Phil is kinda hot! : )

    (In that pic above, Tyler is on the left, James is on the Right)

    They deserved to win! It was a boring finale, I think they couldn’t cram any more challenges because there was only an hour and not two. It was pretty wierd how Phil was like, “We’d like you to tell your family..” and then pulled out a sprint phone. Lame! But I hope I get to see the Model/Addicts around. I sure did grow fond of their faces 🙂
