The Amazing Race Australia is back for another week of fun – and frustration – but, let’s face it, there’s nothing much else on in terms of reality TV.
Yes, the MAFS juggernaut rolls on but it ain’t what it used to be, and after you have picked the next Cam and Jules and the beauty influencers in the making it all gets a bit same same.
You could turn on Netflix or check out the excellent selections on SBS On Demand or ABC iView. But sometimes you need a show that you can watch without really watching. The Amazing Race fits the bill. TAR is perfect for when you want to watch while chopping veg, or flop on the couch for phone feed scrolling.
And, according to this TAR tweet, someone kills a crocodile then makes a camel cry. Or, perhaps, meets someone dressed up as Crocodile Dundee. How many times will we hear “that’s not a knife”?
Sunday: In an epic challenge of brains versus brawn, a detour divides the teams. They are faced with a challenge that tests their physical, mental and tactical skills in order to receive their next clue.
Monday: The teams must complete a painstakingly meticulous task in order to receive their next clue in the race.
Tuesday: The teams are faced with completing a puzzling game of cat-and-mouse. They must follow the map that will unlock the key towards the next pit stop of the race.
