Why is this so underrated?
5 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show, but it has a 6.7/10 on here along with a 1 and 5 star out of ten reviews. Why!? Well I really like how unlike Wipeout, where the contestants are one dimensional and you laugh when they fail, the contestants get a back-story of their living and they are often kind-hearted, unlike some of the Amazing race contestants. It has cool obsticale course too. My only flaw here is how the back-story's are a wee bit long, and the commercials are too. This show does not deserve the hate and is just pure great. This is as good as the amazing race, a show that brings you to other countries. This deserves a 9/10 by me, and should go from 6.7 to an 8.6 average IMDb rating out of 10!
