Interesting to watch families this time around. Thought Carissa, that little girl, was cute. Maybe too over confident.

Yahoo news out that the winner of Amazing Race Family Edition has been leaked and could be right on the spot. The winner is the Linz family – one sister and three brothers. The one that was almost eliminated in the first round. Finished 2nd last.

Also reported in the news is that the race this time did not leave the continent!!! All in States or did they venture down Central or South America?? How could they??? I guess with kids its hard. Maybe the first and last to include families. Apparently, there were issues with kids on this Amazing race was against labor laws or something, show almost got canned!!

It looks like some of those families are going to come out of this thing hating themselves. Like that poor mom who forgot the clue and her sons were like "what the hell!?". Then again, the producers probably looked for some dysfunctional families.

It’s an interesting twist.

I do think it’s unfair that one family is completely full grown while the other’s kids are still teenagers or younger. Not exactly fair for physical aspects of the race (like rowing those boats).

Amazing race was probably my favorite show and last night I didn’t even make it through the 1st hour and I turned it off. I didn’t have a problem with the families, but I do will all the travel in the US. That has to be the worst idea ever. The reason for me watching the show was to see all the different places around the world. Not to see all the states. How boring. Even if they do some other parts of North America I think it will still be a failure. It’s too bad though cause I was really looking forward to watching it again this year, but I won’t be continuing with any future episodes.

We watched it, and I was so highly annoyed with those 2 little kids, the brown haired boy and his awful scrawny little blond sister. I like the family idea, I just wished they had an age limit, say everyone has to be over 16. It would make it much more enjoyable for me. I loved the Kevin and Drew cameo in NYC!! I wonder if there will be more cameos by former contestants since the race is in the states? That cracky looking mom got ran over by the cart! I was like BAHAHAHHAHA! Made me laugh

Oh, and one of the contestants is named Brock Rogers. That is such a porn star name if I’ve ever heard one!

I don’t have high hopes for the latest edition and I fell asleep during last night’s show, but I have to root for the Linz family of Cincinnati until they prove to be retards,a-holes, or just obnoxious.

Thanks for ruining the outcome for me. It hasn’t started in Oz yet.

A "spoiler" warning would have been nice.

Haven’t seen the trailers for Amazing Race here in New Zealand yet, we were only about 2-3 weeks behind America on the last series.
I agree with Nivid, I loved seeing all the places around the globe, remembering when I had travelled there
Will wait and see when it comes on

Jennifer& Chester,

You’l be happy to know that the last 2 episodes they have left the US. It makes it slightly better but it’s just not the same. I hope that they go back to the old format next season.
