HiYa June!! You know The Amazing Race is not my specialty but I have heard the Globetrotters leave next and Meghan and Cheynne not only are in the final 3 they win.   

Never been a huge fan missyae. She's only repeating what she's seen here without giving the proper credit. I can settle for a Meghan/Cheyne win if Kelly is right. Always nice to see fans of the race take it all.

I agree she/he could have read the rumored winners anywhere and Cheyne and Meghan are the picks to win even if you cruise the non-spoiler forums.
We need a poll.

I've been using an objective tool going back to TAR 3 that helps get a handle on who is racing well consistently, and provides a way to make comparison of teams and seasons. It utilizes the average of a team's placement at the end of each leg. I might try to post this info here after the season is over, but it is posted at TWoP in a prediction thread.

(There are different ways of computing this average, what I have settled on treats the uberlegs (TM ME!) as two separate legs since it is possible to identify the arrival order and makes season-to-season comparisons more balanced. And this measure seems to work even with the variations in Race course and task design and the other rule changes over the history of TAR.

Using that measure, Meghan and Cheyne are the heavy favorites to win. They won't have the best average of any team in the history of TAR (that's Eric and Jeremy), but they will have the best average of the remaining teams at this point no matter what actually happens. The best average they can have is 2.00 which would place them second, and the worse is 2.33, which would make them fourth all-time.

Yes, they may come across to some as boring. But you know what? Almost all of the winners have come across to some as boring. Because usually, they make the fewest mistakes.

Interesting .........

Meghan and Cheyne are one of the winningest teams in The Amazing Race history. Will they be able to keep the winning going or will they lose out in the final leg? Find out on the Season Finale Sunday, December 6th. Only CBS!

Vey nice video! have we seen one like it before? ???

Nick and Starr won 7 out of 11 legs...M/C have won six out of 12 so far...so even a final win won't top Nick and Starr.

No I don't recall Nick and Starr having a video like that, I wonder if CBS will put one out for each team?

I don't know, but to me this seems to imply a Brian & Ericka win. I hope so.
