I'm currently about two weeks behind, but I've been watching. It's horribly banal; they spend more time talking about what they're doing then actually showing it. The team names are stupid (see Football Players) and I hate the "motivational" stories they shoehorn into each week's episode; i.e., No Limits bawling about wanting to see their respective families. They've been gone, what, a week so far?
Fortunately, the Italian Separatists -- sorry, Gypsies are amusing. Chad's funny too. But, like JJ said, they really should do more with the local culture and scenery instead of "racing" through it.
