If she were a Real Housewife, she'd be a NeNe. Okay, fine ... maybe more of a Jacqueline. Practically raised on reality TV, Amelia is a freelance writer who lives in New York and loves to write about entertainment, as well as fashion and beauty. The closest she's ever come to appearing on TV herself? She once sat in the audience of The Tyra Show, but she was called out during an intermission because her ‘shocked-audience-member expression' was not big enough. She's worked for Maxim, New York Daily News, New York magazine, and The Knot.
In Season 17 of The Amazing Race, contestants traveled as far as Ghana and South Korea, they joined the circus and dressed in babushka-style drag, they ate sheep's head, and yes, one of them even got nailed in the head (poor Claire will never look at watermelon the same). But the most exciting feat came last night when two contestants made history.
Nat and Kat, the doctor duo from Scottsdale, Arizona, clinched the million bucks and became the first all-female team to win The Amazing Race.
So how did they do it? Their calm, laid-back style helped them sail all the way to the finish line.
Brook and Claire look like 'Amazing Race' champsThis week's episode of The Amazing Race was the last leg before the big season finale. That meant things were bound to get serious for the four remaining teams. Serious enough to introduce ninja warfare to the race? Well kind of ... at least for Brook and Claire.
Jill and Thomas This episode of The Amazing Race was an epic one. For the first time in the history of the show, we witnessed a Double U-Turn. That meant that not one, but two teams got to screw over fellow contestants as the teams headed to Bangladesh.
And while the double doozy didn't really shake up the finishing order, it did inspire some cattiness. Yes, finally the claws are out!
Chad & StephanieNo Jumbotron, skywriter, or ring-in-the-dessert for Chad. He proposed to girlfriend (and teammate) Stephanie the Amazing Race way -- at 6 a.m. in the Southwest Asian country of Oman.
Stephanie said yes, and the team's description at the bottom of the screen officially changed from "Newly Dating" to "Engaged." I'm just happy the two made it to their proposal because they got off to a pretty rocky start this episode.
'Amazing Race' Michael & Kevin: Rule Breakers?Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold the phones. Did the producers make a mistake on this week's episode of The Amazing Race?
This leg was all about following the rules. Two teams -- Chad & Stephanie and Michael & Kevin -- were penalized for not following directions. And yet, it seems like the show forgot a big fat rule of its own.
