I don't know if it's just me, but this season, I'm practically finding every moment of the race exciting. Right from the start when teams were getting tickets for the flights. We didn't know if any of the teams on the later flights would find out about the earlier one. We didn't know if Michael and Kevin were going to make the connection. And at the end, it was a three-way race to the finish when Jill and Thomas used their Express Pass. Man, I'm SO loving this season! It's just EXCITING! And I love it that they check the first few teams in barely through half of the episode. This way, we get to see more drama among the remaining teams. Awesome!
I believed that Nat and Kat would finally pick themselves up this leg, and they did! Second-last to first place! Yes, I'm really hoping they'll be the first all-female team to win the race. Please!!
I'm really impressed with Michael and Kevin's performance this leg. To an extent I thought that they would do a Jet and Cord and come in first despite a Speed Bump! But them finishing the Roadblock in first was already awesome. I'm loving this father-son team more and more, I love the support and respect they have for each other. Great finish this leg!
I wouldn't have expected Jill and Thomas to use their Express Pass this early. I thought that it'd only be towards the end of the race. But I guess they had to, they were in last place. And this makes things more exciting I guess. Now that the Express Pass is out of the picture, everyone's on equal ground again. And BTW, I actually thought that the scene where they were lost reminded me of the scene Tammy and Victor was lost in TAR14, in one of the earlier legs. De javu?
I didn't expect Connor and Jonathan to come in last. The Detour screwed them over! But I was touched by Connor's attitude when Jonathan struggled. He was really encouraging, in contrast to Chad's behaviour. Man, I'm really sad that they're gone. I cried at their departure, seriously! And I've never done that for an all-male team. They've been a relatively strong team on the race, and a bundle of positive energy. I'm sad they're gone, but I like it that they took it so well. That ending scene when they threw their caps, sang their "swan song" and departed with their joyful faces... Man it really made me cry! Awww. Well as they said... They not only graduated from Princeton, they graduated from the Amazing Race. With a song!
