I’ve Never Watched ‘The Amazing Race’ Before

kim dejesus amazing raceIt’s not to say I’m opposed to reality TV or competition shows or even CBS (BN True Confessions: The Wife and I are huge ‘Big Brother’ fans), but I’ve never watched ‘The Amazing Race.’ Some folks are really into it, and the concept – traveling the world, solving stuff, doing stuff, in a big race – sounds acceptable enough. It’s just never caught my eye.

It has caught my eye.

The show is made up for two-person teams, and one of the teams on this year’s installment features none other than Kim DeJesus, the spouse of former Cub David DeJesus. She has become something of a cult hero in recent months among Cubs fans, so I’d think this news would be greeted with some smiles.

Kim is paired with fellow baseball wife Nicky Getz (Chris Getz’s better half). Presumably Kim is as fun on TV as she is on Twitter, thus making her airtime enjoyable.

The 23rd installment of ‘The Amazing Race’ premiers on September 29, and I will tune in for at least an episode or two just to see what’s what. It has already filmed, but it’s very secretive on how the DeJesus/Getz duo fared.

    If Chris Getz could get THAT…imagine what someone who is actually good could land.

      But he has a good excuse for his performance, look at what might be distracting him.

    I think there have been a few Big Brother contestants in the Amazing Race before Brett, if you have Hulu you can go back and watch some of those seasons.

    Question – Is either girl wearing a necklace?

    At this point, I would like to make a motion that our friend Blublud be required to rescind his prior opinion that Kim is not “hot.”

    1. C. Steadman

    As far as reality TV goes, Amazing Race is pretty good. Not a whole lot of BS TV drama, the challenges and concepts are neat, and you get to see other cultures. My girlfriend and I used to watch it all the time, although I have not watched the past two seasons. We definitely will be watching this season.

    1. Cyranojoe

      Agreed. Best of its breed, back when I was watching it.

    Kim could possibly be the hottest Cub wife I’ve ever seen.

    Chris Davis wife is a knock out. Religious lady and is an R.N. For those of us married to an R.N. they are special.

    1. waittilthisyear

      my gf is an RN and she is a lunatic, if thats what you mean by special

      1. Bails17
