I was really hoping that my previous prediction would come true and that Tyler and Korey would somehow run into trouble during the next-to-last leg of the race and end up coming in last. After the past few episodes, I am totally over Tyler’s constant laughing and Korey’s constant whining. Add to that, it’s hard for me to root for any team that resorts to using the U-turn, especially when they’re in first place.
Well, it turns out that Tyler and Korey were not eliminated at the end of last Friday’s episode. Instead, they came in first and guaranteed themselves a spot in the final three.
However, the same cannot be said about Burnie and Ashley. After being the most consistently strong team in the race and establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with (and I expected them to win it all so that shows how much I know), Burnie and Ashley had one bag leg and it cost them. They came in fourth and were eliminated from the race.
And, to be honest, it’s difficult for me to really feel anything about Burnie and Ashley’s elimination. They were a strong team. They were front runners. They worked well together. But seriously, they were BOTH SOOOOO BORING! After watching them for 11 episodes, I still have no idea who Burnie and Ashley were. They were Team Bland and Bland will not be racing during the final leg of the race.
Instead, here’s your final three:
First to the pit stop, Tyler and Korey. Bleh.
Second to the pit stop, Dana and Matt. Blah.
Third to the pit stop, Sheri and Cole. Yay!
Out of those three teams, who do you root for? Sheri and Cole, obviously. Sheri and Cole are literally the only likable people left in the race. They’re underdogs and they’ve never managed to come in first. But here’s hoping that they pull off the upset of all upsets next Friday!
We’ll see what happens!
P.S. Happy Mother’s Day! My mom always enjoyed Survivor and The Amazing Race, though I think a lot of that was because she knew that I enjoyed them. She didn’t care much for Big Brother, though. “Those people,” she would say, “all they do is talk, talk, talk.”
