"Not really PC of me ..."
Just a wee bit of pondering. Will the producers allow special accomodations to our Little Person competitor for some of the challenges? There is the Federal law called IDEA (Individuals With Exceptional Needs) that stipulates such things as wheel chair ramps, Braille signage, extra wide restroom stalls, etc.

Most of the Race takes place outside of the United States, so maybe the law doesn't apply. Or perhaps since it is incorporated in the US the law does ...

Maybe the individual involved signed a waiver (which would put her in a major disadvantage IMHO).

Just musing ... or rampling ... must really miss TAR.

Even if they accomodated, I think the 'little person' fully understood the challenges and was ready to overcome them. I doubt we'll see any interferences.

2. "I hope not"
As far as I can tell, no accommodations have been made for contestants in the past for who they were, and I hope that none were made this time around.

SurvivorAmazon had, Christy, a "hearing challenged" person and there was definitely no "speed-signer" at challenges or moreso a "Night-Visioned speed-signer" during all of her missed, late night, conversations round the camp-fire.

No Special cases taken with Shakes and his Love Cruise stint either.


In short...
I don't think that any causes will be taken-up on behalf ...
of the halfling.



Truly,
the cause should be her's
to conquer alone.

Properly-sized equipment, and that's probably it. At any stop where the teams have to don event outfits (cave exploration, hang gliding, etc), they'll have something there in her size, along with items she can carry and use without difficulty (bicycle, miner's pickaxe). They'll level the playing field that much, but no more.

The midget needs some rollerblades or something so she can get the fat ##### waddling a bit faster.

Not to be PIC but c'mon.

And how are they not disqualified for having that guy carry their bags for them? Doesn't seem right to me. (I pity the person whom has to eat the midget and whiners meat after dropping it about a thousand times)

Oh, help me help me. Stop your whining. its a friggin race.

(oh, and for the love of god, confiscate the whistle)
