    Watched every season for a long time. Probably 2-4 year break, then watched most of this past season.

    A member here used to (still does?) work on the production team that builds the games / challenges.

    Would occasionally watch an episode here and there of the first couple of seasons, never really did anything for me. Bunch of drama generated by the producers/editors.

    I used to, but it has been years. No longer interested.

    I also used to watch The Amazing Race but stopped after the types of contestants changed. I liked watching family teams, rather than young ringers who didn’t interest me.

    Sadly, I think this is precisely why these shows are so popular.

    It's mildly alarming that substantial numbers of people might find these loud and obnoxious 'me' types worthy of their emotional support.

    Back in the early days of this stuff, I seem to remember references to “Train Wreck TV.” I suspect this explains a disproportionate share of the interest.

    Believe me, I know. I just don’t like the genre at all.

    We've been hooked on Survivor since the 2nd season.
