I have no idea if this is the spot for this but Cody and Jesdica posted a video today of what they packed for the race and how they prepared if anyone is interested. Please move this if there's a better spot for this.

One thing I was surprised to learn was that before Cody spent 4 years in the Marines, he had spent 6 years in the Air Force.
Makes for a wonderful TAR skill set, don't you think?

A lot of people were asking about Jessica & Cody's story pre-season and during filming, and today I found a perfect video to explain that better than I ever could.

I know it's really late, and we've kinda got to know them through TAR now, so perhaps most of you don't care anymore, but if anyone is interested in why they were so popular and why they deserved a second chance (even if not on BB), just watch or listen to this 14-minute video. Actually, you can skip a bit past the 1 minute mark. :)

The Bahrain leg was probably the first one where they had great navigation skills!

EDIT: Oh nvm, spoke too soon, they did get lost later on. :cmaslol

They haven’t had the best luck with  taxis all season. Cody’s almost manincal skills in the tasks this season is noteworthy as among the best in 30 seasons IMHO.
They just need to do well on both taxis and tasks for the last two legs.

 And Congrats to the newly engaged couple!
