Reality TV is Inclusive?

This summer my mom told me that she was surprised that I didn’t watch that reality show The Amazing Race.  She said it seemed like something I would like.  I admitted that the only reason I didn’t watch was that everyone else seemed to watch it and it always won the Emmy every year and I tend to be one of those people that doesn’t like to jump on the bandwagon.  I mean hey, I loved the Atlanta Braves when they were horrible and then happily adopted the Chicago Cubs in 2000 where I proudly watched them finish dead last in their division.
