Donald Trump Says Amazing Race Doesn’t Deserve Emmys
The Amazing Race is the only reality show to ever win the Emmy for Best Reality Competition and Donald Trump isn’t happy about it. “It’s a shame that ‘Amazing Race’ keeps winning, because it doesn’t deserve to win it,” Trump told the Hollywood Reporter. “It wins every year because they know how to politic the Emmys.”
The Amazing Race is in competition with The Celebrity Apprentice and Trump feels like it is his year to win. He thinks this season of The Apprentice is the best ever. He wants not just a nomination but a win.
Trump also believes that it is expected for TAR to win this category and this has affected the decline in the Emmy’s ratings. ”They’ve lost credibility,” Trump says of voters. “Instead of shows that deserve to win, they pick ‘Amazing Race.’ It’s a very sad commentary.”
