I’m not pretending I am any good at tumblr but I am truly terrible at twitter, and I am sorry for everyone who puts up with me when I come home from work on Friday nights and then watch bride shows on TLC and House Hunters International on HGTV and I freak out over wedding dresses, and beautiful homes in Thailand, and Natalie Dormer and I saying things in unison in response to questions from Craig Ferguson, and finding out that my favorite ever Amazing Race contestant Brook is getting a reality show about being a home shopping network host (but for a home shopping network I’ve never heard of).
Of course that meant I started watching old Amazing Race clips. I am pretty sure Brook and Claire the only team to have ever worn false eyelashes while running around trying to win a million dollars (or, in Claire’s case, being hit in the face with a watermelon while trying to win a million dollars because Claire was that contestant).
All the clips on YouTube are official CBS clips with ads preceding them and views in the low hundreds and few comments. In one of the videos a commenter complained about what looks like a dowel above Brook’s eye and to my surprise the only other comment was one explaining it, but the poster didn’t reply to the original commenter, so I am sure it was never seen. The explaining comment reads:
She stopped commenting on videos a year ago. RIP, octoloverful.
