Last night there was a shocking event that disturbed many viewers, were you one of them? Did you watch the episode? If you missed any of it, you can read the full and detailed recap here.
This “shocking event” went down at the travel agency when fan favorites, Rockstar & Lawyer, James & Abba dropped a wad of cash inadvertently and Twins Natalie & Nadiya stole it! Yep, they actually took the money! Trey & Lexi also knew about the theft and get this, they split the money!
After twenty one seasons, this is a race first. Now if it wasn’t done intentionally, taking the money I mean, I would understand there being no consequences. But this definitely was not the case and there should be some sort of rule violation that host Phil Keoghan called them on and there wasn’t. The only thing Phil did was Tweet on how generous the people of Bangladesh were as they were the ones that donated cash to the James & Abba to help them get on with the race after they were forced to beg for it, “Kudos to the generous people of Bangladesh for helping out the rockers. They must be Megadeth fans :)”.
Rob & Kelly came in last and really didn’t deserve to go home when Natalie and Nadiya should have been thrown out of the game or, at the very least, been given some kind of penalty. Lets not forget Trey & Lexi, their first place status and the trip to Australia should be taken away. Celeb Dirty Laundry has sounded out today, leaving several comments on how inappropriate the theft was. For the most part CDL readers were shocked that at the very least no time penalties were given.
We know where Natalie stands on the issue, she tweeted the following on her twitter account, “all these whine sacks complaining Natalie & Nadiya stole $ on
#AmazingRace are annoying. It’s a tv show! It’s not like robbed a homeless man.”
We believe the lack of consequences for the twins sends the wrong message to viewers, do we want to teach our children that it is OK to steal to win a game? This is very bad for a show that professes to be good for the whole family. How do you think this fraudulent act will make Americans look in a foreign country in that they are permitted to commit a crime and there are no consequences?
Phil and CBS need to step up here and set an example, what do you think?
