This was one of my favourite legs all season! Yay, yay, YAY that Jess and Lani got their first place! I was bummed when they came in first last leg and it was a TBC. When they started this leg strong, it was exciting watching them, seeing if they'd keep their lead or lose it. And they kept it all the way to the pit-stop. I'm so happy for them! And I'm impressed by these two girls. They struggled the first few legs at the back of the pack, slowly got the hang of the race, and finally came up strong. They may be party girls, laughing throughout the race, but they've shown that they have their competent side. I hope they maintain it! Love these girls to bits, they're just so fun to watch. I'm actually liking them over Claire and Michelle now, but I still love both teams.
I loved the Giant Drop task. Looking at the teams trying to spot the flag while not knowing when it would drop, that was nerve-wrecking. I felt nervous for the teams looking at them, what's more the people who were actually experiencing it. It must have been SCARY. But it was a cool task.
I loved how the Bush Hunter Detour seemed so easy (to me as well) that everyone picked it, and realised that they couldn't do it and had to switch. I thought that placing the eating task at the end was a little odd though. It was a good task, but it just felt like it didn't belong there.
I love the fact that Hussein and Natasha are still in the race. They've been bringing up the rear more of the time since the race started, and are still struggling now. But it's just amazing to see how they made the final 5. I thought that they'd last at most till the final 7, but they surprised us. We'd have thought that they were screwed this leg by them consistently being in last place. But Sunaina and Dimple got lost, and there they had their chance. Yay for Hussen and Natasha!
Too bad for Sunaina and Dimple... With only 6 teams left, any mistake made exponentially increases the chances of being eliminated. And they made a grave one by being hopelessly lost. That sealed their fate, they couldn't blame anyone. Their parting speech was really sweet though. Awww.
I love this leg! I love Jess and Lani! I love Claire and Michelle!
