Survivor has set formula where more or less the same thing happens every season/episode, as people try to outwit each other; it lost its appeal to me after the 2nd season. But for Amazing Race, the elements are more volatile and dynamic, there are always different teams and the concept of traveling around the world to win some money doing some interesting competitions to advance, is way more interesting than the routine formula for Survivor.
I LOVE this show too...too bad I don't get to watch it that often but yeah it's amazing at how much strength these people have to get through all of the obstacles that they go through. It's absolutely amazing.
I am so sick of Survivor that I could barf! I love the Race though! I cannot get enough of it! It never gets old because they always go to new places every week so its a new show every season. I always have a team I like and there is always one every one loves to hate!
yes, i agree. this is better than survivor. and i think that survivor is scripted. the amazing race has so many interesting challenges. not like survivor, they will be just be doing the challenges in an island.
There is something exciting about seeing the different locations that they get to travel to.
And because they are always somewhere different being faced with the new challenge, it shows that the contestants have to think fast on their feet.
I also love The Amazing Race. It is so fun to watch just to see the different cultures. I love seeing how the teams interact with each other under pressure too. The challenges are awesome. Can you imagine going on that show- it would be a once in a lifetime experience.
