So, last night, we had two episode of the Amazing Race. The first one ended with the revelation that it was a non-elimination leg, which was really good news for Tara and Joey. The second episode ended with heartbreak as Team Fun — no, not Team Fun! — was eliminated after Floyd basically collapsed in Vietnam.
At first I didn’t like Team Fun but they won me over and I’m really sorry to see them go. It’s especially upsetting because Floyd spent the final leg of the race helping out all of the other teams. He and Matt worked together at the roadblock and then Floyd helped out London. Both times that Floyd helped, he ended up setting himself further behind. So, Team Fun is gone but fortunately, the Amazing Race has been renewed for at least a few more seasons. So, who knows? Maybe Team Fun will get a second chance to run the race.
(Or, maybe like Jeff and Jackie from season 26, they’ll end up in the Big Brother House! Who knows?)
Anyway, there are now only four team left! There are also only two legs of the race left. Almost all of the early front runners are gone, leaving only one consistently strong team in the race. Here they are, in order of how they finished last night:
Coming in first, Matt and Redmond! Unless something goes wrong during the next leg and they end up getting eliminated before the final leg of the race, Matt and Redmond have to be considered the front runners right now. They’re a strong team. They have a good attitude. They work well together. With Team Fun gone, I now fully support Matt and Redmond to win it all!
Coming in second, Brooke and Scott. It’s terrifying to think that Brooke and Scott could possibly win this season. Scott is okay but Brooke …. oh my God, Brooke. What a whiny little crybaby! If Brooke and Scott win, it’ll all be due to Scott.
Coming in third, Tara and Joey. Tara and Joey seemed like they were the front runners for a long time but, last night, we finally got a chance to see how they race when they’re frustrated and I wasn’t particularly impressed.
Coming in fourth, London and Logan! Who would have thought that London and Logan would make it this far? I like them both, mostly because I’m an artist and London’s an artist. That said, they’ve yet to have a really strong finish and they’re continued survival seems to largely be a case of good luck. They could make still make it to the final three, of course. It’s easy to imagine Brooke and Scott having a meltdown and allowing London and Logan to slip by them.
And finally, in fifth place, Team Fun! Oh well. At least they made a lot of friends.
We’ll see what happens next week!
