I am so glad that AM is going back to it's original format. The whole family version did nothing for me. It may have been because the "weavers" were on there that I disliked it so much. Didn't enjoy having the little kids and the first few episodes just didn't live up to the stunts on the ones before. I LOVE this show,even more than Survivor and Big Brother. I think it's that we get to see all the different parts of the globe. I now know that some parts of the world just would not be for me,even given the beauty of the country. Bring on the couples....I am more than ready!! Thanks Jackie,I so enjoy your "pithy" comments!!LOL
