I suppose I'm just grasping at straws. This is what I was trying to convey: Having the Globetrotters win this season would make the entire season a disappointment. :(

Welcome to my world!  I've been disappointed MOST seasons, except for last year.  And I think the Trotters have a fan base, maybe not as much as the Cowboys, but I think Trotter fans DO exist.

I personally don't care WHO wins.  I like all the teams in this F4 (and speculated F3), and I'd be happy if any of them win, including the Trotters.

That's a great attitude to have. It is good to enjoy the season and the show for what it is and be happy for whoever wins. I don't hate the trotters but they are the least of the remaining teams IMO.

Thanks!  I'll admit the Trotters aren't the best racers, but they recognize their weaknesses and try to compensate for that by getting assistance from other teams.  If anything, we should "hate" the other teams that continue to give the Trotters the answers.  They can always ask, the other teams aren't obligated to give it to them!

I speculate the Trotters & Kisha/Jen for photo finish and Gallory in 3rd.

i think Globetrotters and Kisha & Jen will be the final 3
we all see they are in the same photo in Miami
It is not possible to have one decoy and one final 3 at the same time

I think it's possible.  K/V, Cowboys, Cheeleaders were all photographed in that airport about the same time as GT and K/J... If the other teams were running decoy, it would make sense to place them amongst the ones still in the race.

In my opinion, the globetrotters are not guranteed to win the race. All 4 teams stand a good chance as well. And yes, I feel Zev and Justin are still in the running to win the race even though there is no screencaps of them in florida, that doesn't 100% mean they are the 4th out.

^That and just because Kisha/Jen and FT/BE were spotted together in the airport doesn't mean that they both have to be of the same status.

CBS can just choose not to air the footage where they appeared together.

I don't get how K/J not winning a leg yet automatically decides that they can't win in the final?

They have been pretty consistent the entire race.  They never fell below 6th place as opposed to every other team still in it, they've never been in any real danger of being eliminated as opposed to everyone else, and they've been steadily improving as the race has continued on.

Yes, K/J have been consistent throughout this race. Consistently never the first to arrive.

Murtz Jaffer just tweeted his prediction of who wins TAR18. He has NEVER been wrong with his predictions of all seasons of TAR and Survivor and was only wrong once with The Apprentice (Annie vs Joan)

According to him, The Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business winners are.......

I've learned to never attempt to predict who makes the finals ever again, but I'm sticking with my instincts about Zev & Justin winning, despite speculation about episode 11. 

I thought the show telegraphed their victory from a mile away, particularly the first three episodes.

The only thing that seems odd to me is that there's been no mention at any pit stop of being the first child-parent team to win...last season they frequently reminded viewers that no f/f team had ever won, which made it all the more exciting and significant when it eventually happened. However, mallory has had so many "deep thoughts underscored by emotional music" moments, but I still think there would have been at least ONE reference to the historic nature of a father/daughter team win...that's the only reason I'm still not yet convinced.

once kent and vyxsin got the can, i decided that i would be ok with any of the 4 teams winning since kent was the only one i couldnt stand this season.
