To prove Rae right, Re: Amazing Race, I found the teams sitting around joking about what happened to Mika and Canaan to be anything but ugly. I think it was just the way the previous episode was so caught up in that competitive space that it proved tough to watch for me.
It’s one of those situations where, if there had been less focus on Mika’s behaviour ahead of time, I could have been caught up in the tension. But there was too much of Canaan’s physical manipulation (that’s what I’m calling it now) for me to see that final moment as exciting instead of uglier than I want the Race to be. There have been footraces before, and tense final tasks that create a lot of tension, but none of them have been so tough to watch.
Hoping for epicness for the momentous 50th podcast.
