The Schmooze

Will These Two Women Make the ‘Amazing Race’ Cut?

The Shmooze can’t imagine why the producers of “The Amazing Race” wouldn’t choose Lindsay Litowitz and Stephanie Spiegel to be among the show’s next contenders. How could they possibly resist these two attractive, vibrant young Jewish women from South Florida (Litowitz now lives in New York, Spiegel is in Miami), who have submitted this adorable video application?

How could the producers not be impressed by the women’s physical fitness and strength, strong bonds of friendship and curiosity about the world? What a combo Litowitz’s self-professed strong organizational and motivational skills and Spiegel’s nature-loving personality and navigational abilities would make!

But the Shmooze favors this duo most for being proud Jewesses. Litowitz says she speaks Hebrew — and a little Arabic, to boot. There’s even a shot in the video of their feet clad in flip-flops decorated with a miniature Israeli flag decal.

It’s all fine and good that Litowitz and Spiegel are artsy and also happen to know how to booty dance (that’s apparently a South Florida thing). What really makes the Shmooze think they are up to the task is the fact that together they have led several trips to Israel for their peers. If they could handle that, then “The Amazing Race” should be a cakewalk for them.
