I've become an Amazing Race fanatic over the course of the past season, so it was with great interest that I watched Wednesday's episode when they came to Brisbane, or Brisbayne, as the clowns pronounced it throughout the episode.
It was so cool to see them running through Brisbane locations, like Roma Street station, and then scaling down the side of the transit centre. On my way through the city the next day, I kept on thinking things like "That's the news agent where Jon and Kelly asked for directions!" and "Chip and Reichen scaled down the wall!" Yes, I have become that obsessed.
Probably the funniest thing was watching all the teams trying to pronounce Mooloolaba. I heard everything from "Moolabaloo" to "Moo-loo-lar-bar". I was disappointed to see the clowns get eliminated (although they probably deserved it for the Brisbayne faux-pas;)), but I think all the three remaining teams deserved to be in the final three, even if I still can't tell David and Jeff apart.
Only two more episodes to go, and then this season is over, with the possibility that The Amazing Race is gone forever. Please CBS, let it not be so: it's definitely the best reality show out there.
