This casting director is so full of herself, she knows exactly what the show needs and what the people want to see. All I have to say is two names. Idiot Boston Rob and his wife Amber. That was the worst casting for Amazing Race ever. I stopped watching after 3 seasons because of that casting decision.
Never EVER, have cross over, celebrities or other reality stars on either show. Never!
“With Rob and Amber, they met on the reality show, they were engaged. They were not at a crossroads, but they were getting married and they had a lot of issues to work out,” she said. “And also they were household names. Let’s see, if Charlie and Marcus become household names, maybe. I think that’s the difference, too.”
She broke her own rules, they weren't a crossroad, they weren't interesting and they were known ahead of time. They are the worst people ever. I'm still angry about this decision like 4 years later.
There are so many other relationships that people care about besides the husband/wife, dating couple and parent/child relationship and Amazing Race refuses to investigate them.
