Rumors are running amok that Amazing Race 8 (the "family" race) sucks so bad that producers may scrape the footage - and race - completely.
Sightings of The Amazing Race 8 have occurred all over North America (New Jersey, Alabama, and Canada) this summer, but the race apparently hasnít ventured off shore.
Adding to the ridiculous premise of allowing young children to participate in what was once a grueling trial of stamina, patience and wit, The Orange Country Register newspaper is reporting today that "the race is being softened up to accommodate the kids." The new show is a family-of-4 team edition that allows kids as young as eight to race with their parents.

(I canít tell you my sources so donít even ask! haha! ) Personally, I think it would be a blessing in disguise because TAR is not meant for children!"
