Stupid Audience [Oct. 12th, 2010|05:22 pm]
[mood |annoyedannoyed]

In case you are following the current season of Amazing Race, DO NOT CLICK below..... cos it contains spoilers. If you don't want to be spoiled, then don't click.

So last night, the last 2 teams were racing to the pitstop, because the last team to check in, may be eliminated.

2nd last team completed their last task and went off looking for the pitstop. They got lost, asked for directions and found the pitstop after that.

Last team could not complete their last task, so the doctor was called in to check on one of the team member's condition, he was given a physical examination including a blood pressure check. He finally completed the task after what i would have expect to be an extended rest.

I would have estimated that last team checked into the pitstop probably more than half an hour after 2nd last team.

I cannot stand how they edited the footage so that it looked as if the last 2 teams were "racing" to the pitstop. They did this by repeatedly quick-switching the scenes between the 2 teams and dubbing in numerous "come on let's go", "hurry hurry", "its there, i see it", "let's move, keep up".

Like HELLO...... we aren't that stupid to believe that they were racing till the end lor. By the time last team came in, i think 2nd last team already finished shitting and eating dinner lor -_-"

If they didn't do that, there would be nothing to show in the last 15 minutes

its similar for survivor series too..... if there are 2 plots to get rid of 2 individuals, they will concentrate showing the failed plot leading up to the vote, and when the other plot succeeds, the audience says WOW, so unexpected
