Amazing Race Ignores Cheating and Stealing

Last night's episode of The Amazing Race was truly disappointing for what didn't happen - the two teams of the Twins and the Texans were not penalized for basically stealing the money of the Rock Star and the Lawyer.  Obviously, Race officials and videographers knew about the act because they made such a big deal out of the Twins "finding" the money and the Texans debating what to do with it.  And I fully expected a huge penalty when both teams checked in - but nothing.  Phil didn't even mention the "loss" of the money to the Rock Star/Lawyer team.

Several years ago, a team was heavily penalized for hiding some necessary Race materials from another team.  It was dishonest and interfered with the team's ability to complete their tasks.  The same is - or should have been - true for this theft.  I am still not liking the Twins at all, and this just further exemplifies what kind of team and people they are - manipulative, crass, dishonest, and classless.  Very disappointed in the producers of The Amazing Race for letting this crime slide.

It was appalling behavior and I was disgusted by the whole incident. This "win by any means necessary" attitude is most unattractive, but those girls appear to live their lives that way. By their own admission they "cheated" and lied in school by taking test for each other. That fraudulent behavior would get them kicked out of school if caught. Shame on CBS and Travelocity for allowing this behavior and rewarding it. I don't know how those women look at themselves in the mirror each day.

My husband and I completely agree. This behavior should have been addressed by Phil and action should have been taken and been severe. What kind of message does this send? That stealing, lying, and cheating are the only way to play this game or behave? This is prime time so it sends the wrong message to all viewing, especially children! We also agree that the twins are beyond irritating!

My spouse and i completely consent. This kind of actions needs to have been recently addressed by Phil and actions needs to have been recently used and been recently serious. Which kind of meaning does this kind of mail? In which robbing, telling lies, and cheating are usually the only method for you to participate in this kind of online tickets maker video game or maybe conduct themselves? This is leading time period in order that it communicates the wrong meaning to all watching, specifically youngsters! We all in addition consent how the twins babies are usually further than annoying!
