CBS-TV's Amazing Race is by far my favorite reality TV show, and a show I never miss, just like Lost, Medium, 24, Criminal Minds and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Actually, it's the only one that I faithfully watch the night it airs, and have ever since the show's premiere.
It's also the only reality show I'd actually like to appear on since I'm great with geography, logistics and languages, and have very good intuition.

I also always watch Survivor every week when it's on, but often I don't see the new episode 'till early Saturday morning over breakfast, before the first Premier League soccer game from England airs on Fox Soccer Channel.

Does anyone recall what happened four years ago when the teams found themselves in Little Havana on the final episode and needed to find a particular tienda to get the final clue to win a million dollars, and then had to get up to a park in Fort Lauderdale?  Think about it.

That was Amazing Race 7, the great year that featured Uchenna & Joyce and Rob & Amber battling week-after-week 'till they wound up in the no-man's land of South Florida.

Why yes, to the great amusement of so many millions of people across the country, it's the famous Lost in Little Havana episode!  ¿Habla Inglés?

Honestly, is there anyone on TV who does a better job than show host Phil Keoghan of doing the raised eyebrow, when a team jumps on a pit stop mat?

My second favorite season, after The All-Stars two years ago, was probably the one that featured families, though I know a lot of media people didn't particularly like that change of pace from the two-person team format.
Personally, I thought it was a genius move which only further cemented the show's already large popularity and appeal to families on Sunday night, in order to peel them away from Fox-TV's animated fare.

I have a strong feeling I'll be there and shoot some photos.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016
