Carissa Explains It All

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 8

I'm really glad that the Goths didn't get eliminated last week. They are one of my top three favorite teams this season.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 7

Why did Phil just say, "Will Ron continue to step up to let Christina take charge"? I've never seen Christina really get a chance to be in charge. Whenever she does, her Dad always puts a stop to it.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 6

This column is so late because Santa asked me to be one of his reindeer, and it took me a lot of time to learn how to fly. I just thought I would add that for all of you Steve and Dave lovers who like that kind of foolish talk in your columns.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 5

I'm sorry that I am doing episode 5 before 4, but SOMEONE in my house deleted it before I had a chance to watch. 

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 3

I’m sorry about how late this is, but I kept having stuff to do. I hope that you can find love deep in your hearts to forgive me.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 2

Go, Goths!! No one comes close to being as awesome as the Goths, and the second episode hasn't even started yet. 

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 1

I don't think that I have been so excited to see The Amazing Race on TV since Season 8. I really thought that it would be canceled, and that I would miss out on all of the fun I have doing this column, and going to the TARflies lunch. Thank you, CBS.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 10

It is a good thing that they show all of the teams in the beginning because I already forgot who John Vito and Jill were. This race has been going on a long time.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 9

Charla and Mirna said that the Beauty Queens were going to get some bad karma back. Who is Karma?

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 8

Uchenna and Joyce are taking a really big chance with only an hour for their layover. I guess that it is just one of those win or lose flights.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 7, pt. 2

Over 1,000,000 people were killed at Auschwitz. That has to be the saddest place on earth.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 7, pt. 1

Charla and Mirna are one-way sneaky chicks. They don't want to give up any information but they are the first ones to try and get someone else's.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 6

Teri and Ian are smart to sleep at the airport and save their spot in line. It is free, there is plenty of food to eat from the machines, and you don’t have to worry about traffic on the way there.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 5

The last thing I want to imagine is the Guido's in a thong, even if it does have their name on it.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 4

I can't believe Joe and Bill and Charla and Mirna are two hours behind the leaders. They must have REALLY gotten lost.

Carissa Explains It All - Episode 2

Potholes that big should be illegal! Not that I wanted Kevin to get hurt, but I thought it was really funny when Drew kept driving while Kevin still had the tow rope on.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 1

Phil what are you talking about some of the strongest racers ever? The Guidos dog with a broken leg could probably run faster than a few of these teams. Sorry, I had to say it.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 12

We didn't even see two minutes of the show and Kim already said the funniest thing.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 11

I'm sorry, I don't have much to say but this was a boring episode. All of the airport stuff makes me want to go to bed early.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 10

Sorry for the delay with my column. I was really tired last Sunday and didn't feel like I had anything funny left in me.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 9

I can't believe the Chos told Bama about their flight. Guys, you are in a race! Wake up already!

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 8

I'm excited they get to go to Madagascar. I wonder if they will run into the movie animals on their cruise ship.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 7

I like how David and Mary said booketing. Is that even a real word?

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 5

I like that, in Vietnam, you can only get airline tickets at a travel agency. This way, teams have to think on their own to get the best flights and they can't just copy each other.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 4

I am starting to like Tyler and James. They were pretty smart to take their taxi driver out to listen to the directions.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 3

It is too bad that Duke and Lauren only have 11 dollars. You have to be really careful what you spend your money on because you never know how much Phil is going to give you.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 2

Since two of my favorite teams were eliminated last week, I will replace them with Eric and Jeremy and Mario and Luigi.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 1

My pre-show favorites are the Korean brothers, the guys with beards, and the Indian couple.

Carissa Explains it All - Episode 12, Part 2 & TARflies Lunch

If BJ and Tyler are supposed to be so nice than why are they telling the hotel people to pretend they don’t speak English and have the Internet?

Carissa Explains it All - Episode 12, Part 1

I hope that Eric and Jeremy win even though I know what happens. I still think they are the best racers this season and the cutest.

Carissa Explains it All - Episode 11

It was nice that Yolanda gave BJ her purple pants and Eric gave him his sandals. Even though this is a race it doesn’t hurt to be nice once in a while.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 10

This was a hard Carissa Explains It All to write because my favorite team did a very bad thing.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 9

I wasn’t able to watch the show on Wednesday because of a soccer game and sure enough by accident one of my friends told me my third favorite team got eliminated.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 8

I almost didn’t get to see the show this week because we were in Boston for a few days so my dad could run in the marathon.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 7

Even though I had to rush after soccer to get ready to watch the Race I was still so happy it was on at 8 p.m. Plus since there wasn’t enough time I didn’t have to take a shower.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 6

I liked how they showed what happened since the beginning up to now. This way all the new people watching can catch up with what’s going on.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 5

I am very glad that The Amazing Race is moving to 8 P.M. Now I can watch it with everyone else. Again, I found out who was eliminated before I got to see the show.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 4

The Racers should have known Phil wasn’t going to eliminate them in Russia because there was no greeter on the mat with him.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 3

That was great that Jeremy and Eric finally got to go on a date with the girls at the pit stop. I think they really like each other.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 2

I had to watch this week’s episode of The Amazing Race on tape since it was past my bedtime. I saw who was eliminated on CBS.com so it wasn’t as exciting.

Carissa Explains It All – Episode 1

TAR8's Carissa is here to give us her thoughts on The Amazing Race 9. (Even if she thinks it's unfair that they went out of the country right away when she didn't get to.)
