    Anyone else planning on giving this one a shot?

    Yeah, I know it's another reality/game show but I'll be there.

    SL already set up. Looking forward to it. It seems it will be more physical than TAR.

    I'm sure it won't be as brutal as his Eco Challenge, but more demanding (or at least in different ways than TAR.

    I'll give it a shot.

    I think Doug called this one correctly, probably won't be back next season.

    The show is OK at best and we're still watching because it's safe programming to watch with the kids around.

    This show is VERY boring. My wife and I have fallen asleep during each episode. I think having them isolated in the desert with no interaction amongst locals really makes it dull. Plus the desert landscape itself is pretty dull considering that's all we see each week. I had higher hopes for this show.

    Our timer is still active. We'll let it go a little longer, but I agree that it's no challenge to TAR.

    The other thing that bothers me is the challenges, they are pretty tough and if you are the first to figure them out everyone can see exactly how to complete them. The water challenge was the worst, it looked like the other teams we allowed to use the same hole that another team dug.

    It's moderately interesting from a 50,000 foot view. I'm not invested in any of the contestants and the host sucks. The departure schedule is understandable, but it doesn't provide any drama .. The strong start first and generally finish first while the weak start last and have a lame finish ..

    The most interesting element so far .. The lady being bucked off of the camel in the most recent episode. OK, I lie. The most interesting part so far is the blind guy finishing near the top of the pack.

    They might as well dump the weak teams because none of them have a chance. There would be more interest if the sent the teams out in reverse order from how they ended. Folks would try to be second to last (rather than eliminated) which would provide some drama.

    Yeah, definitely don't see this one coming back next year (or ever). Not even sure if it will finish up this year.

    Most of the teams are forgetable unless the team with the blind guy wins he won't remember anyway.

    I do give him (blind guy) credit, he's tougher and more willing than most of the other contestants. I would think he'd be nervous as heck. However it was interesting that his friends briefly lost track of him, they don't seem to think of him as the blind friend, they just think of him as their friend. Pretty cool.

    Well girls, you're not in Kansas an more .. Team Kansas was given the boot this week. The Country boys were saved only because the girls couldn't get out in front of them far enough. Too bad the next leg isn't spread based on your time behind the group or they'd definitely be gone next time.
