Are you interested in other cultures in the world, Geography and would like to see the craziest things people would do for a million dollars? Then you should watch the Amazing Race. In my opinion, it is one of the most exciting reality tv show and the whole concept of what it is about is really interesting. It follows 21 contestants, in groups of two, in a race for a million dollars around the world. If you haven't watched it yet, here are a few reasons why you should:

1. The exciting challenges

Would you dare to eat crocodile meat or shave your head without thinking twice for a million dollars? I know no one in their right mind would do this but with the right incentive, this show would make you realize that people would do ANYTHING to win.

2. Introduction to other culture

One thing I really love the most about the Amazing race is how much knowledge I have gained in knowing about other countries and their culture and traditions. At this point, I have visited over fifty countries just by staring at my tv screen.

3. The Drama

Would it be a reality tv show if there isn't any drama? From backstabbing moments, to contestants breaking down due to the challenges, there is no moment where you aren't sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.

4. The unforgettable contestants

From the hilarious Afghanimals to the cunning Brenchels, Amazing Race has shown characters that we will never be able to forget, both for good and bad reasons. These characters become your favorites and you wish they win the prize money so much you might even find yourself shedding a few tears when they don't. I have even found myself checking for updates on my favorites on social media years after the season ends.

5. It’s great pick-me-up

I can't count the number of times the Amazing race has helped me when I needed to watch something to take my mind off my problems. Its great to watch when you're sad and also great to watch when you're happy. If this one fact alone doesn't convince you to watch the Amazing race the more, then I don't know what else will.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
