This race seems to be a mix of at best average episodes and pretty good ones. This was one of the better, though maybe not as good as the best of season 20 (Germany or Paraguay).
Glad Pam and Winnie went as some probably supported them as they thought they would go far. Yes I've been told spoilers may have said otherwise, but not everyone actually likes to follow spoilers.
The use of a FF just to get a first place and being used by the team in the lead with nobody actually able to compete against them is a weak point. And all that sinister music as if they would actually be in danger with the crocodiles lol, oh well I suppose it scared some of the stupider parts of the audience.
The tension in the episode was more with the teams rather than the audience as we knew Winnie and Pam were last and the footrace was actually not so important anyway. I enjoyed seeing Joey and Meghan win that, even though Joey can sometimes be annoying I think they are the most rootable for me.
The boot order overall has been decent this season (maybe John and Jessica could have lasted more, though John annoyed). But the roller derby mums, hockey players and country singers are all expendable to me.
