Time for my weekly analysis. Even though it wasn't a MW question last week, I am proud that I picked Bolo to be the one who ate the disgusting food. Of course, I missed many of my other guesses, but we won't talk about that.
The title for episode 6 is, "They Probably Should Have Some Conseling." This is surely talking about Jonathan/Victoria, and is probably spoken by one of the other racers, or by Phil. Since Freddy/Kendra were the only other team to witness the display at the pitstop, I suspect it is one of them.
Web clues for this episode..... While riding in a taxi, a Team member irritates the driver to the point of getting the pair kicked out.
Could be a lot of the racers, Jonathan, Lori, Kendra, and Hayden seem to be the most outspoken. An episode or two ago, a video clip showed Bolo arguing with Lori, because she didn't want to pay a taxi driver. Could that be forshadowing.
Surely it isn't Gus/Hera, although I have seen a couple of previews of them out walking. Teams are required to drive cars unlike any they've ever seen before.
These would be "Trabants." According to previews, the racers will use them to drive from Berlin to Hungary. During a run-in with the law, one Racer pours on the charm to miraculously turn the situation to their benefit, while the teammate looks on in amazement.
Some speculation that this could be Jonathan, who besides being a prick, can also be a smooth operator. I can also see this being Bolo or Gus. Transportation proves disastrous for one Team as they find themselves left behind. How will this setback affect their game?
I believe this is Lori/Bolo. They are shown breaking down in their "Trabant" along the side of the road, and saying something about the engine being shot.
The Detour this time looks to take place close together, at some castle or fort.
1) Looks like the teams have to move a large cannon from one location to another. I don't believe they actually have to fire the cannon. Teams show doing this detour, are Jonathan/Victoria and Freddy/Kendra.
2) In this detour, teams have to use a catapult, to shoot what looks like cantalopes. They probably have to fling the cantalopes a certain distance. Shown doing this, are Adam/Rebecca.
The Roadblock this week, involves one of the racers using what looks like a reverse bungee, and being "sprung" very high into the air, and then falling back to the ground again.
Shown doing this are Lori, who talks about how fun it was, and Kendra, who evidently faints while doing it. Others shown standing around watching, are Rebecca, Hayden, Adam, and I think Jon.
I was keeping track of the RB breakdown for the participants each week, but saw this at SUCKS. It is a little better than what I was doing..... Jon (3): zip line, roll hay bales, soap box derby,
Kris (1): salt harvesting,
Aaron (2): zip line, roll bales,
Hayden (2): salt, derby,
Freddy (2): roll bales, derby,
Kendra (2) zip line, salt,
Bolo (2): zip line, roll bales,
Lori (2): salt, derby,
Jonathan (3): zip line, salt, derby,
Victoria (1): roll bales,
Gus (2): roll bales, salt,
Hera (2): zip line, derby,
Adam (3): zip line, roll bales, salt,
Rebecca (1): derby
I expect most of the women to do the RB this week, especially Kris, Victoria, and Rebecca, who are behind their male teammates in RBs done.
Other things of note.....
* We were shown a new alliance between Hayden/Aaron and Freddy/Kendra. Will Kendra's problem with the RB, cause both teams to fall behind?
*You have probably seen this propose elimination list by now. I am not sure where it came from, but it didn't come out until last week. It has been right so far, but predicting Don/Mary Jean's elimination last week was easy. If it is right this week, I am inclined to believe the rest of it..... 1.Adam/Rebecca
BTW, the last thing I saw, had Lori/Bolo and Gus/Hera swapping positions.
So who finishes first this week? With F/K, H/A, L/B all shown having trouble this week, I am going to say it won't be one of them. I will probably stick with Kris/Jon. But I highly suspect that the Fast Forward will come into play this week. Will one of the lower finishing teams use it? With only two in the whole race, I look for the first team to it to use it.
Which team will be eliminated? Since episode 7's title sounds like something Gus would say, I am going to say that he and Hera are safe. Since episode 8's title sounds like Lori/Bolo, I will say they are safe also.
With nothing better to go on, I will probably say that Freddy/Kendra are eliminated this week. It is as good as any other guess I could make. :\/
Now the question is.......should I drop Freddy/Kendra from my team? ?
