Go Vicole! 77% of you really do not want an all-‘Amazing Race’ final three

Go Vicole! 77% of you really do not want an all-‘Amazing Race’ final three
It’s been all-“Race” teams all the time on “The Amazing Race,” and you really hope that doesn’t continue in the two-hour finale. In a recent poll, 77 percent of our readers are rooting for Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo, the final non-“Race” team left, to prevent an all-“Race” final three.

Nic and Vic are up against the three remaining “Race” teams: Colin Guinn and Christie Woods, Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, and Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran. In the preview after last week’s episode, Korey says he and Tyler would love to have an all-“Race” final three, and Nicole later says that the “Race” teams are working together without her and Victor. And really, you can’t blame the “Race” teams for working together and they probably wouldn’t be upset if an all-“Race” final three didn’t come to fruition.

Whoops! Did this ‘Amazing Race’ finale preview just spoil the final three teams?

Whoops! Did this ‘Amazing Race’ finale preview just spoil the final three teams?
Wednesday’s two-hour finale of “The Amazing Race 31” will cut the fourth-place team at the end of the first hour, and if you watch the new preview above very carefully, you can figure out who the final three teams are.

This is the danger of “Race’s” two-hour finales: The show has to edit together previews that highlight all the teams but are vague enough that don’t give away who doesn’t make the final three. But its own previews and press photos in the past have self-spoiled, and it’s happened again.

If you don’t want to know, get out of here. If you never wanted to know, what the hell are you even doing here?

So, first things first, the final four — Colin Guinn and Christie Woods, Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, and Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo — will jet to London,

Jeff Probst’s Emmy hosting record in danger: Will RuPaul Charles go 4-for-4 for ‘Drag Race’?
As Emmy fanatics are aware, the all-time record holder for Best Reality Host is Jeff Probst, who won four in a row for hosting “Survivor” (2008-11). But that stat is about to sashay away as RuPaul Charles is thisclose to winning his fourth Emmy after prevailing in 2016-18, according to Gold Derby’s Experts who’ve chimed in with their predictions. Do you agree that RuPaul will tie Probst’s long-standing Emmy record at this year’s Creative Arts ceremony? Be sure to make or update your Emmy picks right now.

‘The Masked Singer’ could be the reality show that finally wins Best Competition Program Emmy for Fox network

‘The Masked Singer’ could be the reality show that finally wins Best Competition Program Emmy for Fox network
After years of trying with “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” might Fox finally walk off with an Emmy for Best Competition Program thanks to “The Masked Singer”? Throughout the category’s existence Fox has contended a whopping 14 times — “Idol” from 2003-11 and “Sytycd” from 2011-15 — but it lost each of its Emmy bids to either CBS (“The Amazing Race”), Bravo (“Top Chef”) or NBC (“The Voice”). If any show can pull off a first-time victory for the Fox network it’s “The Masked Singer,” which tasks everyday celebrities with dressing up in extravagant costumes and performing for America.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is the Emmy front-runner again, but these 3 shows could snatch that wig

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is the Emmy front-runner again, but these 3 shows could snatch that wig
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” took a while a catch on at the Emmys, but it dominated in 2018, winning five times out of eight nominations including Best Competition Program, where it defeated the three-time defending champ, “The Voice.” Now we think it’ll win again. It’s the heavy favorite according to the combined predictions of Gold Derby users, but our Emmy Experts are pointing to three other shows that could upset.

As of this writing 16 Expert journalists from major media outlets have placed their bets in the category, and 13 of them are predicting another win for “Drag Race”: Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Debbie Day (Rotten Tomatoes), Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Chris Harnick (E!), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Matt Roush (TV Guide Magazine), Kaitlin Thomas (TVGuide.com), Ben Travers (IndieWire), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Ken Tucker (Yahoo), Stacey Wilson Hunt (Gold Derby) and Susan Wloszczyna

Uh-oh! Rachel Reilly’s new ‘Amazing Race’ record is in jeopardy

Uh-oh! Rachel Reilly’s new ‘Amazing Race’ record is in jeopardy
Rachel Reilly‘s new record on “The Amazing Race” looks to be short-lived. The three-time “Race” alum became the most traveled racer when she completed her 32nd leg on Leg 8 of Season 31 in Switzerland. She and sister Elissa Slater got eliminated that leg, so she couldn’t extend it any further. That allowed the Afghanimals, Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, to tie her record on Leg 10 on Wednesday’s episode in the Netherlands, which means they could beat her record next leg.

Given how much the show drummed up Rachel breaking the record, Wednesday’s episode made no mention of Leo and Jamal matching her feat. But to be fair, the Afghanimals did provide a lot of content on their own with their ineptitude steering and finding boats in that canal.

With two cruel fourth-place finishes in Seasons 23 and 24, the Afghanimals came into Season 31 with 22 legs under their belt. Since there are two legs left,

Becca and Floyd (‘Amazing Race’ exit interview) on their egg-cruciatingly ‘dumb’ mistake and the pee break you didn’t see
Team Fun made an egg-xtremely bad moo-ve on Wednesday’s episode of “The Amazing Race.” After getting U-Turned by Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo, who were already U-Turned by Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, Becca Droz and Floyd Pierce had to complete the second Detour, which tasked them with pole vaulting to collect a dozen eggs and two blocks of cheese and then delivering them via tandem bike to a market in Kampen, Netherlands. Team Fun made the pole vault Switchback look easy as hell, but they didn’t do the easiest thing of them all: check the eggs for cracks. One had a hairline fracture and so they had to do it all over again, pushing them to last place. But at least this time they finished Leg 10 instead of getting a mercy elimination like in Season 29 when Floyd came down with heatstroke.

So why didn’t they check the eggs?

We’re a ‘Big Brother’ team away from an all-‘Amazing Race’ final three — do you want it to happen?
We’re almost there. After Colin Guinn and Christie Woods continued the streak of “Amazing Race” wins winning legs on Wednesday’s episode, we are one week and one elimination away from a final three of “Race” teams.

The only non-“Race” team left is Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo, who edged out Team Fun, Becca Droz and Floyd Pierce, on Leg 10 after both were victims of the Double U-Turn. Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, and the Afghanimals, Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, round out the final four.

Amazing Race June 19, 2019 Eliminated Becca And Floyd (Episode 10 Recap)

Hey,"The Amazing Race" fans. Tonight, June 19, 2019, episode 10 of this 31st season did indeed air. Tonight's episode kicked off with the teams learning they had to catch a flight to Kampen, Netherlands to get their first clue for this leg of the race. Tyler and Korey got to take off first since they finished in first place during the last leg. Once the teams arrived in the Netherlands, they had to ride tandem bicycles to a place called Jachthaven to get their next clue. In fact, they had to ride these tandem bikes to nearly every freaking place they went. Once they arrived at Jachthaven, the teams ran into their detours for this leg of the race. They got to pick either the "High" detour or the "Dry" detour. In the "High" detour, the teams had to pick up and deliver a cow sculpture. After that, they had to hoist

‘The Amazing Race’: Which team is eliminated in episode 10 of season 31 on June 19?
The Amazing Race” once again proved its unpredictability last week when Chris and Bret went from a second place finish in the preceding leg to finish last and face elimination in episode 9.

Four of the five remaining teams are “Tar” alumni while the other — Nicole and Victor — came to fame on “Big Brother.” With no more non-elimination legs, which team will be sent packing by Phil Keoghan at the end of episode 10?

Leg 10 is so not as easy as riding a bike in this ‘Amazing Race’ sneak peek

Leg 10 is so not as easy as riding a bike in this ‘Amazing Race’ sneak peek
Well, it happened. We’ve finally found a physical activity that Colin Guinn and Christie Woods haven’t done yet: riding a tandem bike. That’s one of the tasks on Wednesday’s episode of “The Amazing Race.”

“Today was our first time to ever ride a tandem bike. It’s like you go to steer and the bike doesn’t turn,” Colin says in a sneak peek of Leg 10 (watch above). “It’s like driving a barge.”

Christie is shown to be struggling hopping onto the second seat, but we’re sure these two friggin’ comp beasts got the hang of it at a certain point. And it’s not like anyone else is having an easier time. The Afghanimals, Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, nearly fall over, while Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl eventually figure out a hack. “The rhythm that we finally got into was pedaling and Tyler not pedaling,

Nicole’s dire Switchback pole vault attempts will give you the LOLs in this ‘Amazing Race’ sneak peek

Nicole’s dire Switchback pole vault attempts will give you the LOLs in this ‘Amazing Race’ sneak peek
The Switchback is back! As seen in the preview for Leg 10 of “The Amazing Race,” we’re getting a redo of an oldie but goodie task: pole vaulting across a ditch of water in the Netherlands. And if this sneak peek above is any indication, Nicole Franzel has her work cut out for her.

“Race” fans will recall the first appearance of this task, which is a Dutch sport known as fierljeppen, in Season 12. It returned in Season 21 when the show again visited the Netherlands. In both previous seasons, the task was a Roadblock, but now it appears to be a Detour, based on the yellow clue Nicole is holding. Whatever the case, both team members have to do it.

Chris and Bret (‘Amazing Race’ exit interview) on their ‘huge mistake’ and the ‘right decision’ to U-Turn the Reillys

Chris and Bret (‘Amazing Race’ exit interview) on their ‘huge mistake’ and the ‘right decision’ to U-Turn the Reillys
It all started so well for Chris Hammons and Bret Labelle on Wednesday’s episode of “The Amazing Race.” They were on the first flight to Split, Croatia, with Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, and they were in first place when they arrived at the Detour. And then it all went downhill. After struggling with the snorkeling-for-coins Detour in the Adriatic Sea, they decided to switch to the memorize-a-poem-while-tubing one, but after one attempt there, they went back to the coins. After another endless futile go, they switched back to the poem, which took them 10 tries to complete. They ostensibly had a chance to catch up when Colin Guinn and Christie Woods forgot their gnome, but the couple retrieved it before Team Bromance could recite their poem.

Needless to say, the “Survivor” BFFs know they shouldn’t have switched so many times, but they think their biggest gaffe was something they didn’t do earlier.

From ‘The Masked Singer’ to ‘Project Runway,’ Unscripted Series Pull Out All Stops to Make a Splash

  • Variety
The growth of American unscripted television shows no signs of slowing down, with imported formats such as Fox’s “The Masked Singer” and re-energized long-standing staples such as Bravo’s “Project Runway,” competing with stalwart series for ratings and awards glory. With so many shows in the race, competition for the few spots on the Emmy ballot has become that much more cutthroat.

“This is our first year on air with Fox and I hope we break through the clutter of all of these existing franchises. It’s just hard to do that,” says “The Masked Singer” executive producer Craig Plestis.

The show relied on mystery over big-name draws, as celebrities hid behind giant masks as they performed popular music numbers. It was a ratings and social-media sensation in its debut season. The series premiere at the beginning of January drew more than 9 million total live viewers, and that number

We can definitively say Team Fun did not cut in line on ‘The Amazing Race,’ and this ruling is final

We can definitively say Team Fun did not cut in line on ‘The Amazing Race,’ and this ruling is final
Airport drama returned on Wednesday’s episode of “The Amazing Race” thanks to a major flight delay and accusations of cutting. Team Fun, Becca Droz and Floyd Pierce, appeared to have cut in front of Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo to get tickets from Zurich to Split, Croatia. The sneak peek didn’t offer any definitive evidence since it started with Team Fun already at their ticket agent, but now that the episode has aired, we can conclusively declare that Team Fun did not, in fact, cut in line.

I know. This is such a serious issue we needed to investigate, but stay with me here. The entire sequence, as shown in the episode, is as follows: Team Fun, Vicole, and Colin Guinn and Christie Woods head to one counter. As Colin and Christie are getting their tickets, Team Fun and Vicole walk over to another counter where the Afghanimals,

Why the ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Team Still Considers the Show an ‘Underdog’ at Emmys (Column)

  • Variety
Why the ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Team Still Considers the Show an ‘Underdog’ at Emmys (Column)
When “RuPaul’s Drag Race” won the Emmy last year for reality competition, it defied all odds. Until 2018, only three series had won the category in its 15-year existence: “The Amazing Race,” “The Voice” and “Top Chef.”

“Drag Race” airs on VH1, which hasn’t been a huge Emmy player in the past (last year was the network’s biggest Emmy haul ever), and comes from a small production company, World of Wonder. Without the benefit of a studio with a large in-house voting block, “Drag Race” had to overcome plenty of Emmy deficits.

But momentum for the show had been building: RuPaul won the reality or competition program host Emmy in both 2016 and 2017, before picking it up for a third time in 2018.

On Emmy night last year, “Drag Race” also made history: It became the first program to win both reality competition series and reality or competition host in the same year.
