The Amazing Race 29.11 “As Easy As Stacking Cups”

I am so bummed out by last night’s episode of The Amazing Race!

The racers went from Vietnam to Seoul, South Korea and they ran the leg that determined who would be in the final three, racing in the final leg for the million dollars.  From the minute that they landed in Seoul, Matt and Redmond were running behind.

“NOOOOO!” I shouted as they made the mistake of taking the subway to their next clue.

“AGCK!” I exclaimed as they discovered that their cab driver didn’t know where they were going.

Meanwhile, the roadblocks and the detours were all difficult and all required a good deal of time and effort,  This was not the leg to run behind on.  As I watched the episode, I started to realize that there was no way that Matt and Redmond would be able to catch up.

“Please,” I said, “let this be a non-elimination!  Please, tell me Phil is going to announce that four teams are going to race to the finish line…”

But no.  Matt and Redmond were the last time to arrive and they were eliminated.  That’s just the way the race goes, sometimes.  To the end, Matt and Redmond were the strongest team but they just ran into a lot of bad luck in Seoul.

Still, that doesn’t make it any easier to take their elimination.  First Team Fun and now the Boys.  All of the likable teams have been eliminated.  Seriously, next week is going to feature perhaps the least likable final three in Amazing Race history.

Here’s who will be racing to the finish line:

Brooke and Scott!  Whiny Scott and bitchy Brooke.  If they win, I will throw something at the TV.

Tara and Joey!  Team boring!

London and Logan!  Somehow, London and Logan have made it to the final three without ever making much of an impression.  I like London because we’re both artists but, at the same time, the only thing keeping London and Logan from being Team Boring is that Tara and Joey have already claimed the title.

Typically, I would say that Tara and Joey would be the front-runners but I don’t know.  As of late, they haven’t really been impressing me.  I’m going to predict that London and Logan will come out of nowhere to win the Amazing Race.

I just hope it’s not Brooke and Scott.

    My prediction last week came true last night unfortunately. I said that the strongest teams during the bulk of the race usually mess up during the next to last or final leg and lose. I’m rooting for Logan and London as they’ve yet to annoy me, but they haven’t excited me either. I’d give Scott the million just for putting up with the professional whiner Brooke. Tara and Joey have been hanging on by the skin of their teeth most of the race and watching them is kind of like watching paint dry. I predict Brooke will have some major sort of melt down and Tara and Joey will make an error, leaving L&L to come in first.

    At this point I’m not even sure I’ll watch the finale. I really wanted Team Fun and then The Boys. If Brooke & Scott win, I’ll be so pissed. I cannot stand Brooke and wanted her out soooooo long ago. I’ll be watching my email from you guys to see the results.

    I don’t think anyone wants Brooke to win. It is too bad she doesn’t seem to realize she had a lot of help from others along the way. I feel sorry for Scott. This must have been a really long month for him. Kind of like the guy who got stuck with the blonde princess a few years back who was awful. Anyway, I really thought Matt and Redmond might make it at the video game. I didn’t care for Redmond at first but he seemed to become nicer towards the end. Him and Matt are a good team and I see them being friends in the future. I’ll pull for Team LoLo now.
