The Amazing Race 10×04: I Know Phil, Little Ol’ Gorgeous Thing!

I’ve started publishing my weekly Amazing Race recaps for RealityFanForum.com, and I just posted the first one on last night’s episode.

Now, let me take a minute here to go off track and ask what the hell is up with Peter and Sarah’s relationship. Their little relationship tag in the lower third of the screen says that they’re “recently dating”. But of this, I have seen no evidence. Aside from the pre-race interview where Sarah said she had a long time crush on Peter, and that it’s attractive that he can take care of her (which–to get even futher off topic–isn’t that just the most anti-feminist statement ever? I think a fairy lost its wings when she said that). But beyond that, what proof do we have that they’re dating? Maybe I haven’t been paying attention, but I don’t think I’ve seen them kiss once on this race. Or hug. Or get closer than two feet, except when they’re squeezed into the back of a taxi. And Peter really seems to have no feelings for her, aside from the rush he seems to get from “coaching” her. I mean, you could have told me they were brother and sister, and that would have been more believable. Or that they had just met on the street the day before, and I would have bought it. I know you’re supposed to have a pre-existing relationship going into this race, but I think that relationship needs to be a little bit deeper than “he sold me my leg.”

Go read it all.
