|Nat & Kat-Amazing Race Winners|
|Brooke & Claire, 2nd place|
(I had to show this again...it's really funny)
The Amazing Race was a refreshing look at intelligent, savvy women who worked together, had fun and ended up as the top two teams of the season. Why is this a nice change? Because, for nearly a decade, women on reality TV have been busy making fools of themselves. Let's go down the list. Shows like the Bachelor, the Bachelorette, The Bad Girls Club, The Jersey Shore, Bridezillas, Real Housewives, Rock of Love, For the Love of Ray J, etc... (actually, I could list quite a few more, but you get the picture) have perpetuated the idea that women had to be bitches, sluts, golddiggers, plastic surgery addicts, or just plain stupid and uneducated to achieve "success" in the reality tv genre.
So, kudos to these strong, amazing women. It makes me happy to see them on TV, making the ladies look good. And, keep in mind, Brooke & Claire will be returning in January for the next season of the Amazing Race...it's a "second chance" season. Good luck ladies!
