Amazing Race 13, 14 fake results posted on Wikipedia

Results for the entire Amazing Race 13 and Amazing Race 14 seasons have been posted on Wikipedia, although they were quickly removed and, for season 14 at least, are pretty clearly fake. (Of course, anyone can edit most Wikipedia pages any time.)

The results for this season were posted Monday, and ranked the remaining teams and their places during episodes 8, 9, 10, and 11. Someone else reverted the page back four seconds later.

The person who added the results to the page initially–whose IP address is from Montevideo, Mexico–also posted contestant names and elimination orders for Amazing Race 14, which started production the weekend of Nov. 1.

In other words, it’s still being filmed, meaning the season 14 list is obviously fake, never mind the fact that its challenge and location descriptions are mostly copied and pasted from other seasons’ Wikipedia entries. We can probably safely assume the season 13 list is similarly inaccurate, even if the top three are plausible.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
