  • Jonathan Baker is hilarious, really...

    8.9
    This guy participated with his wife Victoria on The Amazing Race 6 and placed sixth. Their elimination took place in Ethiopia. Really, throughout the first eight episodes of that season, I had seen a couple of things here and there that I did not appreciate from him, one in which was he was sometimes mean to Victoria. Other times when he was loud and crazy, he was damn hilarious, this bloke is talented, also another great aspect about Season 6. Season 6 was actually my overall favorite due to a number of things; the locations, the task design, the high suspense, the new twists and the emotional times. The only thing that annoyed me was Freddy and Kendra winning. That did not affect it much as it is still my best season.

    Jonathan is definitely one of my favorite contestants.moreless
  • I hated Johnathan throughout the whole race!!!!

    2.1
    The Amazing Race 6 was the second amazing race season that I watched of the entire series. I really enjoyed this season as a whole except for the fact that Johnathan and Victoria were in the race. One of my favourite moments was when Phil Keoghan said "Johnathan and Victoria you are the last team to arrive I'm sorry to say but you have been eliminated from The Amazing Race". I hated how Johnathan treated Victoria throughout the entire race. He would yell at her the whole leg and once she was even cryingwhen they checked into the pitstop, they didn\'t even get eliminated. But I have to say that Johnathan was one of the greastest villians of the game.moreless
