Every season, while watching "The Amazing Race," I continue to put together my list of things I'd want to make sure I was comfortable with doing before coming face-to-face with Phil Keoghan.
I'd want to learn how to drive a stick shift. That's a no-brainer. I'd want to learn, "Drive faster please" in at least 15 or 20 languages. I'd probably go try a moderate bungee jump.
I'd do that last one because even though I'm not necessarily afraid of heights, it's something I've never done before and I'd really want to make sure that's a fear that wouldn't come out of nowhere to cripple me on national TV.
The odds of "The Amazing Race" asking you to bungee or sky-dive are pretty high, but still probably less likely than the chances you're going to find yourself submerged in the water at some point in your journey.
I'm just saying that probably Jen wanted to have that whole "Fear of the Water" thing at least partially under control, because that's too obvious a handicap to have it prevent you from winning a million bucks.
