Harry’s Law will get the plug pulled on, trust me. I check the Bubble Watch on TV by the Numbers every week. The author’s usually right.

I love TAR, but agree with everything the above post says. It’s becoming too predictable and of the thousands who audition, why recast those from previous shows (Survivor & Big Brother). Right away they become my least favorite team. They’ve had their 15 minutes. And haven’t people like Rob & Amber won enough money already. We want fresh faces. People who are racing for the real reasons, not because the network asked them to.

What I don’t like is that TAR recycles people from other reality shows. Why can’t they pick people never seen before. I find the rehashes from Big Brother (or Survivor from other races) really irritating people. This show is beginning to be too predictable.
