Well, there’s not a lot to say about tonight’s episode of The Amazing Race. It was pretty much more of the same. All of the teams are still in India. Justin and Diana came in first again. Kelsey and Joey were second, once again. We even had yet another U-turn. After what Kelsey and Joey pulled during the last leg, it would have been poetic justice for them to get U-turned but instead, Justin and Diana decided to U-turn Logan and Chris.
Not that it made much difference. Even after being u-turned, Team Annoying (as I’ve come to call Logan and Chris) managed to survive. If they hadn’t been U-turned, they would have been third. Since they were u-turned, they came in fourth. But, in the end, Denise and James Earl were the ones who came in last and they were eliminated.
And, to be honest, I think it probably was time for Denise and James Earl to go home. I think they did the best that they could and actually they did surprisingly well. I was happy to see that, during the two or three legs, James Earl actually stopped giving his mom a hard time and they started to work well together. The experience helped their relationship and that’s a good thing but, at the same time, neither one of them was ever a threat to make it to the final leg.
Probably the most significant thing about tonight’s leg of the race is that we are now down to four teams. There are only two more legs of the race left. Next week will see the teams going to China for Leg 11 and then Leg 12 will take them to Long Island, where someone will win the Amazing Race.
Here are the four final teams:
Coming in first at the pit stop, Justin and Diana. Justin and Diana have won me over. They’ve run a good race and, other than some fighting during the halfway mark, they’ve worked well together as a team. Yes, Justin is loud and cocky but Diana seems to be a genuinely nice person and, oddly enough, I’m actually starting to find myself cheering for them to win. They are Team Front Runner.
Coming in second, Kelsey and Joey. Or as I like to call them Team Boring. They’re a strong team but they’re also a bland team. And yes, I’m still mad at them for u-turning Tanner and Josh.
Coming in third, Tiffany and Krista! Team Cheerleader always seems to have the work luck but somehow, they always manage to survive. If they come from behind to win the race, it will be a surprise but it will also be a great story.
Coming in fourth, Logan and Chris! Team Annoying! Shut up, Chris! And, for that matter, Logan can shut up as well. Wait — which one is Chris and which one is Logan? Well, it doesn’t matter. Team Whiny needs to go.
Who, out of these four teams, will win the Amazing Race? We will know in exactly two weeks!
