Too Much Thinking On `Amazing Race'

Jordan and Jeff need to give their brains a break

Jordan and Jeff need to give their brains a break

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you think competing on The Amazing Race is easy, think again – and again, and again.

According to Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder, the Big Brother couple who were eliminated from the Race this past Sunday (Mar. 21), the global trek requires a crazy amount of thinking.

Tons of decisions like what to pack, how to navigate foreign roads, and which challenges to attempt must be made on the spot.

Schroeder says the Race was way tougher than being on Big Brother, where their biggest daily dilemma was usually which kind of sunscreen to wear.

Lloyd says the hardest part was driving from city to city, especially in France where the street signs are confusing.

Packing for the trip was no picnic either.

Schroeder admits they brought a bunch of unnecessary “MacGyver stuff” that they ended up tossing along the way.

The Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
