Steve Smith's Amazing Race: Reading Glasses

Last week's episode was another easy finish for 1990 CMC setter Steve Smith and his daughter Allie. The pair finished third, after several weeks finishing second.

In videos on, Steve explained another secret to their success, the father-daughter angle. They just introduce themselves as a dad traveling with his daughter and hopefully whoever they're talking to will relate.

"There's something about, you know, your daughter, there's no threat or anything like that," Steve said.

The pair were also helped by Steve, the oldest competitor left, bringing his reading glasses, and not by Allie's French.

Allie spoke in the same video of not being a fan of her college French classes. But in another video, Steve talks of searching the winery for one marked bottle. The mark was small, something he couldn't see without his glasses. He's also better with patience challenges.

"I'm usually five minutes better at not panicking than she is," the dad said.

They go for another leg tonight at 8/7c, but make sure and watch for delays from the NCAA basketball tournament.
