This blows: Rob and Amber from “Survivor” will be in “The Amazing Race 7”

Why? They already have a million between them. Silly me, I thought the allure of “TAR” was that it pitted ordinary people against each other in a race around the world. Now it’s exactly one step away from “I’m a Celebrity, get me out of here!” Sad.

Last season TAR had a scary couple from Big Brother on. I was disappointed about that one, too. I enjoyed the first season or two best when the participants were normal and not all models and actors. Some were even *gasp* overweight!

I don't mind Rob & Amber being on TAR. They're only one team and at least they're interesting. They'll actually probably be really competitive: they're athletic, smart and while he's excitable, she's a calming influence.

What will really tick me off is if they continue to have such excessive bunching in the next season. I want *all* of a team's actions on the race to count, not just the last one.

First, at least the Big Brother couple were knocked out early last season. Second, I totally agree about the bunching - it is completely out of control in this season. Even the "no money" penalty is useless considering how Hayden & Aaron came back this last episode.

This doesn't bother me that much, really. It's not like previous contestants on TAR have been poor, Chip and Kim appeared to be at least well off, and the slimey Jonathan and Victoria apparently live in Beverly Hills or something. Besides, TAR won't be a place where Rob's main skill, manipulation, will work all that well. It's going to be next to useless, in fact.

Should be interesting to see how they do.
