The Amazing Race Perth

Postby FXD on Fri Apr 28, 2006 12:36 pm

See this in the West? The Amazing Race that aired last night in the States had the teams fly into Perth and do challenges on Cott Beach, head to Rotto then to Freo Prison where a team was eliminated.

MY DREAMS ARE BECOMING REALITY!!

To air here May 18.

How awesome was this? I was seriously excited to see the familiar cabs that we have, and the buses, and above all, the THICK AUSSIE ACCENTS! Do we really talk like that?

I hope the State Govt was watching. We have been saying it for years and they say there isn't a problem.

THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH TAXIS IN PERTH.

Oh yes I was thinking the same thing "do we really sound like that?" It was good to see them go to Fremantle prison, how freaky is that place!!!

Go BJ & Tyler!!! :D

Haha they all hate the hippies.

Funniest part, first taxi that gets called at the airport has a driver speaking english with some foreign accent. And the fact they relied on the Perth taxi system...

Not to mention them making a focus on the red traffic lights...it mustn't just be us that think we have shocking red light timing.

Yeah, it was funny on how the summed up Perth's problems in an hour program. Whenever I'm going anywhere lights often prove an annoyance, as it did for many of the contestants. It also clearly showed the lack of taxis around Perth.

Did anyone notice the old America's Cup shirt that John Longley had on at the finish of the Perth leg of the race? Talk about living in the past. :wink:

If they thought it was bad trying to get a cab in freo during the day, just as well they didn't arrive on a Friday or Saturday night.

Took the better half to do all the tours on Friday at Fremantle prison, it was awesome, I loved the history, if you ever have some spare time go and see the tunnels especially. It was awesome being approximately 23 meters underground in pitch black darkness, under Hampton Road.
Do or do not!
There is no try.
