This Sunday saw the return of The Amazing Race, and not just the show, but the return of past contestants. From the goth to the Harlem Globestrotters, a collection of Amazing Race stars of recent seasons enlisted for their second chance to try to win a cool million dollars. And one of the favorites that signed up for a encore performance? The Cowboys! Brothers Jet and Cord – real life cowboys -hat and all – have always shown endurance, strength, and solidarity in the race. But on the new season of Amazing Race- titled Unfinished Business – the two were off to a rocky, very rocky start. Not only were they delayed – along with a collection of the other front runners – by a medical emergency on the plane they were on, but the the two struggled with decoding a message hidden in a series of flags. At the end of the episode, their fate was undecided. But are the Cowboys finished?
I think not. The race did not include a pit stop, rather the race was still on. The two will probably just have a big game of catch up to do. And knowing the Cowboys? They’ll do it. And really, would the producers of The Amazing Race want to see a pair of such strong (and popular) players being eliminated so early on? I think not.
