Ok so what is up with Carol and Brandy? I cannot believe that Brandy had the nerve to try to ruin Catie’s accomplishment. She just could not accept the fact that it was their behaviour that caused them to U-turn Brandy and Carol. Their behaviour towards Catie was reprehensible on the race and it only continued at the end.
The Amazing Race is one of the better reality shows. Almost from the beginning it has been in a different class of reality TV shows. A great deal of the sabotage that goes on in other shows is constrained on the Amazing Race by some of the rules. Some alliances are made but the race is not generally won or lost based on alliances. Instead winning the Amazing Race is more based on functional relationships, athleticism and the ability to think clearly. It is not about insulting other players, especially at the end.
