The Amazing Race, Season 27

http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_rac...ace-season-27/

I went in thinking all these teams look pretty strong, and I have been trying not to judge teams by their looks or pre-race comments. However, seeing the guys from Texas say they were going to use flirtation to help them get ahead got me annoyed. Why is this such a thing with teams? Then there are the former cheerleaders who are obsessed with their make up and hair.

After that, the guy I thought I'd like because he was such a TAR fan bursts into sobbing tears in the cab because he thought his race was over. Sobbing! And finally, we have the TMZ girls who knew they were last and seemed resigned to the guys they work with never letting them hear the end of it. It must be a pretty crappy workplace for women but I guess when you work for a trashy outfit, it comes back and gets ya!

I am not sure who I want to win at this point, I don't have any real strong likes for anyone else.

I'm glad the TMZ girls are gone. I hate celeb gossip crap to begin with, and seeing them snark on other teams annoyed the hell out of me.

Agreed. Hope the paparazzi gets eliminated as well, based strictly on their crummy profession.

I watch TMZ and laughed when those girls got eliminated.

Is Justin going to cry at everything?

overall not a very likeable cast so far. seems like they picked some high strung people as just to create some drama. Think I will be rooting for the homeless dancers, Jin and Ernest as they could truly use the money.

Those are the only two I really want to see win, mostly because many of the others annoy me. I forgot to add the doctor who was spazzing out about his wife while trying to figure out the puzzle.

If they continue to go for the drama I don't think I'll be watching much. TAR Canada is so much better.

I hope the TV news couple don't keep talking like they are reporting the news in that fake way throughout the show.

I agree that the casting seems weak this season thus far. Hopefully that will change after a few episodes.

Yup. Insufferable from the start.

Glad TMZ got booted early, they already seemed like a toxic pair.

I don't really have team that I care about yet, we'll see how the season progresses.

I'm rooting for the dancers for now. Don't think they're gonna last long but hopefully they're entertaining.

I didn't catch that the dancers were homeless.. I don't have a favorite yet - this cast definitely seems very weak/annoying so far.

Best part of the first episode was the soccer/volleyball game. The pros were only using their legs and head and still dominating.

Hopefully they don't revert back to weak ass challenges like last year. Watching the racers pet a dog, or flip a coin for a roadblock isn't super appealing.

Yeah, it does seem that they have really dialed back the difficulty level in recent years. At least from the early years of show.

Not very many likable teams at all this season, the cousins and the dancers...that's it.

Was really hoping that couple in the green clothes would have been eliminated. That guy was such a tool for chirping those athletes and going off on getting the express pass. And then it was the athletes who ended up getting the pass instead.

Also nice to see that the dating theme didn't survive for a second season.

The producers have to start creating tasks where Google won't help them. Driving a statue to a gazebo? Come on.

Bald guy and his gf remind me of Brenchel, not just because they're wearing green. The bald guy legit resembles Brendan, although obviously an unattractive and bald version of him.

I'm rooting for the black guys so far.

The last two people on this show that were actually likeable were Jet and Cord. They really need to do a better job casting.

Believe it or not some people actually want to see a likeable group, not just multiple groups of drama.
