I'm a big fan of CBS's The Amazing Race, the 14-seasons-strong reality show in which 10 or 11 teams of two contestants each have to negotiate various challenges in a race around the world. The incentive: $1 million for the winning team.
Last night's installment found the teams in China. During one challenge there, teams had to go by raft to the middle of a small bay, where one person from each team had to throw fish into the water for trained birds to retrieve. Yes, you read that correctly: birds. As one contestant noted, "If someone put filet mignon in my mouth, I would eat it, not hand it back."
Here is the clip. I don't know how those birds were trained (maybe I don't want to know), but I thought the challenge was very cool.
P.S. I totally thought that Keisha and Jen were playing dirty with Luke. Way dirty -- and not in a good way.
