We’re big fans of long-running reality competition shows Survivor and The Amazing Race–but we have differing opinions on how best to view them as a family. Join us for a fun, friendly mom-daughter debate about which show we like best, which makes for the best family viewing, and which show we’d rather be a contestant on. Enjoy!
