Do young blonde women have to pay for anything, ever?

I finally watched Sunday's episode of The Amazing Race. The blonde girls got two free cab rides from two different cabbies, right? What the hell, man. I think it's a safe bet that I could stand by the side of the road bend and snapping all day long and no cabbie is going to offer me a free ride.

Oh, and for the record if I'm a cabbie, no, no free ride for them. I would however, probably give a free ride to anyone who wanted to talk about speakers and NASCAR. I know of no one in real life who ever wants to talk about those.

I still had to pay for everything. Maybe I wasn't blonde enough in college?

I kept saying the same thing to dh. Most of the other groups would have been hosed if they had been in that situation.

I was a young blond woman for 2 years in South Korea. Blond hair got me just about anything I wanted, I am quite sure of that. Somewhat ashamed of it now, but I used everything God gave me, that is for sure.

I hate to admit it but I have received freebies that I am sure I got only because I am blonde. I have never had to buy my own drinks at a bar and i've been pulled over 6 or 7 times and never received a ticket. Once at the grocery store I left my wallet at home and the guy behind me insisted on paying for me. I always try and turn whatever down but that never seems to work. I just accept graciously and try and pass it forward.

We can't help it if men swoon over our luscious blonde locks and screamin' hot bods...

In my "younger" years (I say that lightly, because I know I'm not "old" at 31, but definitely not in college anymore), I could totally get things for free all the time. I would say I maybe still could, but the 2 kids in the backseat kinda ruin any chance for me scoring free stuff anymore...but I'd like to think I still got it

I couldn't believe that either. I was glad they got eliminated because they messed up repeatedly. I couldn't believe the bus stopped for them as well - and that the cabbie was willing to give them ANOTHER free ride to catch said bus.

Good grief.

On another note: The older couple are STILL there! I can't believe that. I find her voice rather annoying, but they seem to keep up. I really thought they'd be out quickly after they walked all over town toward the beginning when they just needed to look up at the giant screen in the middle of the square.

I had a beautiful blonde roommate in college and she always was getting free stuff. My mom always said the best five years of her life was when she dyed her hair blonde, back in the 50's.

Is that blonde kryptonite? All powers are nullified.

I have had some good luck with things in the past but not like that. Though I was thin when I was younger, and getting back to that again, I never was attractive.

I also have not been carded once since I turned 21. When I was 28, someone mentioned to me that they could not believe I wasn't married yet. I said that I was only 28 and had time. The person "apologized" and said oh that 's ok then. I thought you were 38.

Yeah. Gifts for the ugly brunette.

I agree it was mostly because they were pretty blonde girls, but I also think the American Film crew had something to do with it. The cabbies saw an opportunity to be on TV.

I was a little sad to see the doublemint twins leave, they were pretty cute getting all excited about the elephants.

Back in the day, I wasn't a bad looking little brunette. I bought very few drinks and didn't get tickets, either. It was a wonderful phase of my life! sounds snotty, right?
