Meaning no Dan/Jordan upsets like last season and the pair that has been in the lead all the way will win?  :cmas20

Jill and Thomas and Nat and Kat both have four #1 finishes, the same as Jet and Cord did.
Brooke and Claire have one number one finish, same as Dan and Jordan did.

I think what he says is that the most deserving team is the one who crosses the finish line first (could be eather N/K, J/T or B/C).
If not, I think the most deserving team could either be Nat/Kat (because they both conqueired their fears) or Brook/Claire (because they didnt gave up after Claire being hit by a watermelon and after being uturned).

Or Jill and Thomas (who have actually been quite good at the Race).

They mentioned "tweaks a few phobias", perhaps Nat overcame her fear of heights. :cmas51 (Well, she would have to, if they won.)

P.S Thanks Peach for moving it to the correct thread. My apologies.  :xmas49

I watched the promo during Survivor last night in slow motion on my HD TV & DVR setup.  If you step through it, you see Nat with tears rolling down her face - eyes practically closed, probably back pressed to one of the uprights, but apparently at the top of the crane.  They also show 2 sequences of team bungee drops.  One is clearly J/T with J on the left (facing the crane) - you can see the faces clearly.  The other, filmed from above, is N/K with K on the left.  You can't really see the faces well for N/K, but based on clothing (not pink) and blonde on a different side (so not J/T), it has to be N/K.

So Nat powers through her fear of heights!!!

As far as I am concerned, N/K deserve to win.  Both faced major hurdles and powered through them.

wow, is the promo of that clip available? I haven't seen that one yet, I don't think!

The promo was shown Wednesday night in, I think, the first 15 minutes of Survivor.  I don't have the equipment to pull it off my DVR, hopefully someone else can.
========================


ALL promos are always in the second post of that episode's thread.

Look here, there are also links to where the screencaps are.  :xmas49

I think we're all just overthinking this. "Most deserving team" could mean anyone. All three teams have done well overall and I think they all deserve to win.  :cmas16

You're right Phil was just giving a line it doesn't mean much. I just think it's funny how people overlook J/T.

Even the other teams on the Race overlooked J/T. In confessionals and such, Nat & Kat, Gary & Mallory, and other teams were mentioned as being a threat, but nobody seemed to see J/T as a fierce competitor. I always thought this was strange because to me, Jill & Thomas are the strongest team. They've done well in nearly every challenge, I can only think of maybe 2 that they did not finish quickly and easily.

I don't think they're the winners because of the "all-female team" line being pushed so much. But I do think that they're the strongest team.

It's somewhat to do with the editing...the editors can paint teams however they want to paint them.

That's true. It could be the other way around. But I think it makes sense that J/T had not been considered a threat at first, because Nat & Kat had been winning so many times in those few legs. Of course J/T is quite a threat now.

Hi I'm new here. I've been lurking this season but at the end I finally decided to break down and join up. Private Rogue reporting for duty!

Actually Nat mentioned that Jill and Thomas are a strong team. If anything it's been Brook and Claire who have been on everyone's radar, more so than Nat and Kat.

Well, Nat & Kat were on Chad & Stephanie's radar but I think Brook & Claire were more on other teams' radars than Nat & Kat -- after all, Jill & Thomas U-Turned Brook & Claire and not Nat & Kat!  And I think Jill & Thomas will pay for it in the end.

Thanks for the welcome!

With Chad and Stephanie, they only saw the wins. Brook and Claire were averaging either better than or the same as Nat and Kat going into Bangladesh with one win. So Brook and Claire were essentially the better team at that point. Also Chad and Stephanie had it wrong saying Brook and Claire were either in the top or bottom. Sorry that was Nat and Kat. If anything Chad and Stephanie should have been gunning for Thomas and Jill.

I agree that J/T are a good team, though I still wish others win ahead of them!
Fact of the matter is, Jill especially is very very fast. Or at least compared to the other male/female couples. She speeds right through. Thomas is persistent, but not as physically strong as some of the other males were nor as fast, I don't think.

Here's another thought on Brooke;

Tar 17 was like a three month audition tape for her. She has a terrific personality and a very favorable edit throughout the season. It may be that talent headhunters came calling. At her age, the amount of money she would receive from winning would certainly be a nice addition o her bank account (probably around $250,000) but certainly not enough to stop working.

It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Personally I hope she and Claire win, but woujld like to see Nat and Kat too.

I agree.  Whether or not B/C win, Brook has shown herself to be a bubbly, bright personality with a capital "P".  I think there are lots of opportunities out there for her, if she wishes to pursue them.

Hehe, what I was talking about was a different video a couple of legs before that. I believe it was in Russia. At that point, Nat & Kat had gotten a couple of wins in a row which made them appear to be the strongest team. Of course, the race progressed and things changed, now we're down to the F3 and all of them are strong.

I am not judging, but:

if J/T wins the million, Jill says:What would you do if you won the million dollars? I would take my family on vacation, buy a new car, purchase a great collection of handbags and finally invest the rest.
Thomas says: What would you do if you won the million dollars? Put a down payment on a ski house in the Colorado Rockies.

if N/K wins the million,  Kat's response: What would you do if you won the million dollars? If we were to win the million dollars, I would donate money to support challenged athletes and to support the search for a cure for Diabetes. I would pay off my debts from medical school and I would buy a baby blue vintage Bronco with the top chopped off.
Nat says: What would you do if you won the million dollars? Donate to charity, pay off part of my medical school loans and bring some loved ones on a sweet vacation

if B/C/ wins the million, Brook's response: What would you do if you won the million dollars? If we win the million dollars I would send my little sister to college and buy a house in Malibu.
Claire's response: What would you do if you won the million dollars? If I were to win the million dollars I would invest it wisely and make another million.

at least n/k would donate to charity! go Nat & Kat!!!  :cmas9  :cmas9  :cmas9  (B/C's responses aren't bad either but obviously I am a n/k fan!!)  :cmastree  :cmastree  :cmastree

Isn't Brook moving to California? This could be because she won the million... or not.  I know that everybody gets at least a little bit of money, the sum depends on what their overall place in the race is.

Brook could be moving to California because the shopping channel she worked for has gone out of business and she wants to take advantage of the 12 week audition she had on The Amazing Race.  :cmas16
