To the point of the "Race" promoters "purposefully finding people who can't drive a stick", I not only believe this but the same for a number of challenges. My wife and I bring this up frequently that there must be some kind of extensive personality profile that identifies certain things about people. Someone is usually terrified of heights and there is always a height challenge. Someone is usually deficient in swimming and there is usually a water challenge. Driving a stick, weak constitution (as it relates to food), so on an so on. I even not that this year, and I may be very wrong about my information, but there seems to be a high number of contestants that can speak a little if not a lot of Spanish. I thought it was interesting that this season they traveled to Portugal, which (and I admit I may be very wrong about this) if I'm not mistaken, Portuguese is nothing like Spanish. My point is, there always seems to be a challenge to attack someone's achiles heel.
