Most Extreme Philimination
October 5

The fifteenth series of The Amazing Race began in a fashion that none of the fourteen that preceded it did: one team was eliminated from the race before leaving the starting area.

The twelve teams had to find a particular license plate on a chain-link fence with hundreds of plates. The eleven who found a plate bearing the name of the next location (written on the plate in Japanese, but also appearing in the first clue) would be given tickets by Phil to begin the race in earnest.

As much as I love changing things from one series to the next, I'm really not crazy about this. If you look at The Race as something more than just a game, but a chance to see a great deal of the world in a short period of time, then it seems doubly cruel. One team is picked to come along for the ride, only to be denied before things even get interesting. It seems wrong to invite a 12th team just so you can have promotional ads saying that 'you won't believe what happens at the starting line!'

His bags are packed. He's ready for the trip of a lifetime. Just send him an invitation at, and off you go.
