I love this freaking show. I’m dying to compete. I’m aware of the sad reality that all female teams haven’t won the $1,000,000 prize. So, I’ll recognize that and am looking for the ideal male partner. I need someone to drive stick, as I don’t. Being able to drive stick is important when you end up in an eastern European countries with a car that was made several decades ago.
So last night, as I was talking to the “new guy” he mentioned doing some physical challenges. My mind immediately went to the Amazing Race. I asked if he drove stick. No. He doesn’t swim. Maybe I can get him into swimming lessons…
He then mentioned how people tend to tear each other apart on that show. True. I saw one couple end their engagement. Another issue: I’m really into the show and would love to compete. However, he told me he is competitive but might not have the same enthusiasm as I do.
He told me that if I was selected to compete that he would do it with me. I told him that we both have to complete applications and submit a video. He asked how I knew this. I told him I’ve been to the website. He erupted into laughter. He asked if the challenges were all physical. I told him no, some are mental and in some cases it’s important to remember previous challenges. I suggested that a journal might be a good idea. He told me that it seemed like I’d thought this out. Just a little.
He doesn’t sound like an ideal partner for the Amazing Race but definitely sounds like a good sport.
