So the Amazing Race is finally coming to Australia for a locally produced version … While it’s one reality show that I have actually watched (for the travel destinations and the relationship fireworks), I’ve never been tempted to actually appear on the show myself. Though perhaps you think differently?
Casting couples for the Australian version of the show is well underway, with entries closing today. As for the prize, well it’s described as being a ‘massive cash prize’ … whatever that means? (perhaps the local prize will be significantly less than the usual $1 million?).
While I have no doubt that Mr Quiet Paws and I would be entertaining to watch (we’d be that crazy couple that ALWAYS seem to disagree and have massive meltdowns when things don’t go their way), I’ve managed to resist submitting an application myself.
Much like playing Super Mario on the Wii with your significant other, I personally feel that entering ‘The Amazing Race’ as a happily married couple is just asking for trouble (mega-divorce mode anyone?).
If however you do decide to enter, I’ll wish you the very best of luck and hope your relationship survives unscathed (or at least makes for some great tv).
