Once again, there were many things to recommend Friday (December 12) night's episode of "The Amazing Race."
Yes, it was an episode that drew much of its drama and I know lots of fans hate that kind of thing. There were travel blunders and accompanying hubris. There were clue reading miscues and clue misplacing blunders.
But it was also a Leg that featured a few difficult tasks and that found all of the teams competing hard for a place in the Final 3, even risking their health in the Manila heat. There was dehydration and a contestant fighting through an injury.
It was close and competitive in the way that you want an "Amazing Race" Leg to be.
