On Wednesday night, the second megaleg came to a close as the teams finally reached the pit stop. To be honest, it wasn’t a huge surprise that Marcus and Michael were the last team to arrive. They struggled during this entire megaleg and, once they fell behind, they were never able to catch up. Marcus and Michael were a strong team and they finished in first place on quite a few of the legs. But, in Spain, their luck just ran out. That said, I have a feeling that they’ll probably return for a future season.
So, we are now down to four teams and we’ve got two episodes left. The end is approaching. Who will make it to the finale?
Luis and Michelle, who finished the megaleg in first, seem to be guaranteed a spot in the final three. They have run a strong race. They work well together as a team. They’re determined to win but they don’t allow mistakes to distract them. It would shock me if they somehow didn’t make it to the finale.
Derek and Claire also seem like a good bet to make it to the finale. They finished the megaleg in third place. Claire conquered her crippling fear of heights at the roadblock. My heart went out to her because I’m not a fan of heights myself. But the important thing is that she did it and she and Derek never gave up. Derek and Claire have made their mistakes but they’ve always recovered. They work well together. They support each other. I’m sure they’ll make it to the finale.
But who will be joining them?
Aubrey and David finished the megaleg in 2nd place but they haven’t been a consistently strong team and David still seems to be so intense that it’s easy to imagine one small mistake causing the team to meltdown.
Meanwhile, Molly and Emily finished the megaleg in fourth. They’ve been a strong team but Emily’s knee slowed them down this leg and it’s hard to imagine that it will be any better during the next leg. Molly and Emily may be more likable and emotionally stable than Aubrey and David but they’re having to deal with a serious injury.
So, if I had to guess, I think our top three will be Luis and Michelle, Aubrey and David, and Derek and Claire. And I will be rooting for Derek and Claire until the end!
We’ll see what happens next week as the Race travels from Spain to Iceland!
