The Amazing Race 10×08: He Can’t Swim, But He Can Eat Cow Lips

My recap of the latest Amazing Race episode is now up at RealityFanForum.com.

Of course one of the overriding themes of The Amazing Race has always been how Americans deal with third-world poverty in a sensitive and thoughtful manner. And so it’s in that vein that the editors bring us this exchange between Rob and Kimberly, as they’re riding around in their taxi.

Kim: Breathing in exhaust is really bad for you, right?
Rob: Yeah.
Kim: So how do these people, like…
Rob: Babe, they die a lot younger than we do. That’s what happens. Most of ’em don’t get enough protein, so their brains don’t develop as much. Brain needs protein.

Rob delivers this last line with all the gravity of Confucius. Like he’s going to write it down on a fortune cookie later. You guys, I’ve got to go lay down. You might have to finish this show without me.

Go read it all.
