Why were the hockey players not penalize for not completing the task were to ROLL the barrels up the hill NOT carry piror teams had to take cheese rolls down a hill in the snow on a sledge, what the instructions team rolled them down the hillside and for not following the instructions were given a penality when checked 15 or 30 minute penality) So whats the hockey players did not follow directions and ROLL the barrels and they did not get got caught cheating....... CBS cheated on National TV...
The last episode of TAR had teams driving in Berlin but the license plates were from Michigan. What is going on? Is this filler that has been edited in - you'd think they would have lots of real material though. Or did they fly the cars in from Detroit and not bother to change the plates?
I am appalled by the insensitivity of CBS in the airing of this segment of the Amazing Race. I lost my father in the Vietnam war and am insulted by what CBS aired that sunday evening. In my opinion the producers of CBS who are responsible for this are no better than Jane Fonda when she visited North Vietnam during the war. CBS owes the veterans of this war an apology for their indiscretion.
In the past I have enjoyed much of the programing on CBS. Until CBS comes forth with an apology to those who served in the Vietnam war. I will NO longer watch any program aired on CBS.
CBS - the producers - even those who participated should be embarrassed. I HAVE NEVER watched this program - and for certain will not in the future. An apology isn't enough. (And I believe in freedom of speech - but there is something called "good taste - patriotism - and OMG it's Hollywood gone amuck again!
HEY CBS and the producers and all those that A DONATION to THE EDUCATION CENTER - now being planned by the WALL! Surely - you smart folks at CBS know about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall? Perhaps not. So let me tell you about it. Go to . THE WALL happens to be the most visited monument on the National Mall - in Washington. Bob Beckel's mission is finally a good one - and that said - perhaps if the sponsors of this program got mail also - then CBS would pay more Perhaps rethink this program.....
U r a disgrace to the men that gave their lives in Vietnam Nam. The men that were taken to the Hanoi Hotel and were tortured and starved!! I wouldn't watch your show or Anything related to CBS if you paid me. Communists
I know Amazing race has gone to Vietnam before however the differenc this time two Items were chosen as a backdrop and contest. The B52 memorial tsk tsk tsk I am sure first the Vietnanese named it that not as a memorial to the crew members who lost there lives or became Prisoners of war. nor to the service of the B52 in Aviation History. It was a memorial to Battaling theri enemy and how glorius there Soldiers were. The other is the Song and you had to go and make it requirement for the contstants to sit thru the entire song and then find propaganda that matched the Song's goal of spreading Communisim and socialism then use closed captioning of the Words for the American public and viewers of the show so they knew what the words were.
Stop being arragant and in this case showing your are in contempt of the Viewership of the show. Matter of fact the show has been to Russia and other countries without promoting the viewpoints of those Communist Countires why this time. What is next North Korea? I rated you with a 1 because zero is not possible.
We don't watch network television or reality shows, and have never watched The Amazing Race. However, my boss, who is a veteran told me about this fiasco. It just enforces why we don't watch this stuff. CBS you are sad, disrespectful and pathetic. Pull the show, and apologize. Maybe you can salvage what viewers you do have.
The least intelligent does stupid stuff. This show sucked. You owe the many who fought and died there an apology for glorifying the Communist government. We will make sure that we bypass your program from here on out and will insist that others do the same. You are very offensive young people that don't have a clue.
I was disappointed in the last episode of Amazing Race. Going into Hanoi, Vietnam, was not just a case of seeing some of the people there but going to a celebration of the Communist/Socialist way of life and, worse yet, the site of a B-52 that had been shot down (with Americans aboard I am sure--it didn't just fly there by itself). I see no reason to celebrate a government that is oppressive like all Communist governments who have no freedom for those who do not follow their ideas and indoctrination and who executed thousands in the South when they took over there. I know that many in the media and entertainment consider the Socialists of the world their comrades. I do not. I would suggest sticking to the purpose of the show and leave the propaganda to others. Thank you for your time.
being a veteran having served in viet nam really made me ashamed of the show on Sunday thousand of people died in the name of freedom. yes they seem to be free but governments doesn't grant you freedom and to have that socialist agenda thrown in your face for entertainment was disgusting. If you were forced to promote that agenda because of the show you should have refused to do it. it didn't belong on the air for entertainment. the showing of a b-52 as a symbol of their wining was also disgusting and than playing that song at the end of the show was also disgusting but i guess for a Marxist socialist station like CBS i guess it is befitting it would seem we know where their loyalties lie
am I the only one who was offended by the amazing race using a B52 crash site as a place to get the clue to the next trial. or the socialist song sung over and over. did no one care or did no one get it. Our soldiers died there. I get the Vietnamese loved it. But the show is American
I can say that after watching Amazing Race almost from the beginning, I can no longer in good conscious, continue. I was hoping to see some penalty for the twins' thieft, but it never came. There is a penalty for stealing a taxi and a penalty for bartering your own belongings. How on earth can there not be a penalty for stealing from cash or anything from other contestants. What next, no rules against stabbing, so that is okay? When Survivor became a cut throat game, I stopped watching it. I have been proud of the code of ethics Amazing Race, until now, has emulated. With remorse I will no longer watch this show. I encourage all who truly believe in ethics to do the same until some action is taken by the program to remedy this crime. This has become a dirty game!!!!
After last week's shameful exhibit of bad sportsmanship by the twins and the Texas team there was no enjoyment in seeing Texas come in first. Did I read someplace that they called themselves Christians? Guess there are different definitions in what makes a GOOD Christian. I'm not sure I care to watch the show anymore. It has left a bad taste in my mouth
In last weeks episode you allowed one of the teams to steal someone's money. With no consequences, this was appalling to my wife and I. In the past when a team failed to pay a taxi driver the had to go back and be honest and pay them, I thought this represented the best in the character of the show and the country. I am very disappointed in the image people will get form watching your show and thinking we fined this to be tolerated f. It's disrespectful to the fans of the show being seen in this light. We as a people think stealing is not ok and should not be tolerated. Your game has rules why not ethics and integrity? Those two girls should be disqualified
I agree with BonnieSunday; the two teams (Texas and Twiinies) that found, but did not return, the money that belonged to the Rockers should have been sent home, or at least penalized an hour for each of the two teams. Letting the Texas team stay in first place and get the rewards was disgusting.
I have watched this show for years and enjoyed. Tonights show (nov/04/12) was disgusting. A family , show that allows people to steal other peoples money and does not get penalized for it is disgusting. Those four people should have been removed from the game and sent home. But no!!!! one comes in first place wins a trip, and the twins come in and nothing said about the money, again disgusting. I thought this was a game that gave everyone a chance to win. I am through with the amazing race I hope a decent, honest and caring person wins. then I hope you all cancel your crooked show.
I'm not big on most Reality Shows.The First Survivor was Interesting because there was nothing like it at the time.It was Just a Mid-Summer Replacment.Then The Amazing Race Came along.It's A REAL Race!!I LOVE it when they go to diffrent Countries and Encounter things you Normally wouldn't Expect.Maybe someday They will Have a Survivor/Amazing Race Crossover.HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM?
I've been an fan of the Amazing Race tv show for some years. But this year adding Rachel and Brendon on broad was really a mistake I believe. Every week it's crying, whining, fussing, between the two of them or them with one of the other cast. Hurry up and send them home please!
What an amazing idea for a tv show! Compete with your fellow citizens, win prizes, go on scavenger hunts, travel, and bring a trusty partner! I get to learn about several new places and the footage is great! Can't get any better!
I totally agree with Jill...There should be a penalty for the two teams who benefited from the collusion of the cab drivers.....this forced the elimination of the team who should have won the race and I, like her, am done with this show...Make it right!!!
This started last year when they allowed teams to "give"answers to other teams and I think they should be penalized for not completeing the task on their own...once again caused the elimination of a team destined to be the race winner...Make this show fair for all. I will no longer watch your show due to this.
I have watched every one of the seasons and tonight I did not think it was right that the second & third team to get to the pit stop were checked in as second & third. They DID NOT figure out where they had to go - their CAB DRIVER DID!!!!!! They should have gotten a penalty just like everyone else did for not following the rules. This will be the last season I watch, and I am not watching next week to even see who wins. When the game is not played fairly, it is not worth watching.
This show is very confusing? I really dont get the point why people like seeing other people running around like monkys. It is so weird and stupid. I think some of the stuff they do would be fun but i really dont get why they get 1 million dollars if they win?
