The season was getting a little boring for me due to Andy and Tommy winning about a thousand legs. But this leg changed it for me, I really enjoyed it. It was so unpredictable throughout!
Yay for Ernie and Cindy finally winning another leg! They raced a quick, efficient leg this time and didn't make any mistakes. They should really continue this way. I feel that they shouldn't have U-Turned Bill and Cathi though. I understand their rationale of wanting to win the leg. But the chances of Bill and Cathi beating them in a footrace are rather low. And it wasn't as though it was a fight to stay in the game. Now they've pissed off Bill and Cathi and put a target on their backs... I feel that they would still have won the leg without U-Turning them.
Well done Bill and Cathi! I'm surprised they lasted this long. But they're really doing well now. I'm hoping they'll make the Final 3 but they might be eliminated at 4th place just like Meredith and Gretchen. But I'm surprised how I'm actually loving this team, how they work so well together and get along with other teams, and that they're just so appreciative of everything along the race.
I'm glad that Andy and Tommy didn't win again. But once again, they raced a good leg. They're really THE team to beat this season. They're strong, consistent, fast, and cautious. I still feel that they have the highest chance to win the race, based on competence AND edit.
Wow, wow, wow! Marcus and Amani continue to surprise us. It seemed like they were goners when they missed the flight and were almost 2 hours behind all the other teams. And then they caught up to Jeremy and Sandy. Finally, they caught up to Laurence and Zac who were U-Turned and not only were spared elimination, but came in 4th, beating TWO teams! I'm really liking this team and I hope they make it all the way to the end. They kinda remind me of Uchenna and Joyce, hmm. I have a feeling they'll either get eliminated at 4th place or wind up in 3rd.
I'm not a huge fan of Jeremy and Sandy, but I'm happy they edged out Laurence and Zac. I really thought they'd be eliminated and that the edit of Laurence and Zac getting lost was solely for suspense purposes as always. So I was surprised to see them running to the pit-stop before Laurence and Zac. Once again, they narrowly escaped elimination, but I feel that their time might be up soon.
I liked Laurence and Zac the first few episodes but after seeing how annoying Laurence can be... I'm happy the team got eliminated. We weren't getting much from them anyway. And I did figure that they'd be gone at the Final 5 or 6. So I'm not too sad.
My ideal Final 3 would be Ernie and Cindy, Bill and Cathi, and Amani and Marcus. But right now, I'm guessing that the Final 3 are Ernie and Cindy, Andy and Tommy, and... Amani and Marcus? With Andy and Tommy winning the race, Ernie and Cindy in second, and Amani and Marcus taking third place. Hmm.
