General predictions for the final seven on The Amazing Race:



The flight attendants, esp with their upcoming Speed Bump, had BETTER get sent off this next ep. I think the only way they could screw up is if Mark and Mike (short stuntmen) get really really lost somewhere. I don't like the flight attendants one bit, so I'd rather keep the stuntmen.

After the stewardesses, the stunt men will probably go next, unless Gay Dad/Son encounter some hernia-related issue that Gay Dad can't do. I like both the stuntmen and the Gay Dad & Son, so this is a toss-up for me. Just not Tammy and Victor! They better not get lost or screw up again.

Now, as I said, I am not wild about Margie and Luke because Luke strikes me as a spoiled jerk and I suspect he only seems meeker because of his deafness. But when they lose he's a really bad sport, and I'd like to see them go next.

I LOVE Jen and Kisha, especially because Jen stripped to her skivvies and was SO HOT; between her an Tammy I was absolutely thrilled with the hot nakedness of the last ep. STILL, Jen and Kisha do have taxi and driving problems, so they're a risky bet, but I want them to stick around because I LOVE them.

Jamie and Cara are also such sweethearts and good sports and I'm very fond of them. But up against Tammy and Victor, or the stuntmen, or Gay Dad & Son, they could get outraced.

I want to see Tammy and Victor, Jen and Kisha, and either the stuntmen or Gay Dad & Son in the final three. And at that point, may the best team win (Tammy and Victor! I always tend to side with the smart nerdy team, and they are our nerdiest and smartest and they strategize... somewhat. Esp. when Victor listens to Tammy).

If we lose any of these teams and I'm forced to watch a face-off between, like, Margie and Luke, Cara and Jamie, and the flight attendants, I am all for Cara and Jamie. Sure, I would love to see a deaf kid win TAR, and yes, his mom Margie is awesome, but Luke really grates on me for some reason.

ETA: Here's what I think it is. Luke and Margie don't seem to be having any fun. I mean, the stuntmen? Mel and Mike? Having the TIME of their LIVES. Even Tammy and Victor are managing to find fun. But Luke just sulks and doesn't even seem to enjoy the challenges. The TAR champion should be someone who loves the race, is what.

My ideal/likely countdown, from next voted-off through first place:

7. Flight attendants. Bye-bye.
6. Stuntmen. Sorry! Try slightly harder to not get lost!
5. Kisha and Jen, probably. I hope not.
4. Gay Dad & Son, because of the hernia.
3. Margie and Luke
2. Cara and Jamie
1. Tammy and Victor YAY!

We've already knocked out all the really tough young men! The stuntmen and Kisha and JEn are probably the physically strongest, though Tammy and Victor are fast too (I guess VIctor DOES count as a strapping lad). Everybody else better hope for challenges that suit them.)

And if it can't be Tammy and Victor, as I said, I want the stuntmen or Gay Dad & Son, or wildcard Cara/Jamie.



Survivor happens also to be a CBS reality show that I follow to the point of total geekitude.



Loook, look. The Sierra/Brendan and Taj/Stephen alliance is GOOD, esp with both idols found, but Stephen is a WEAK LINK and I think they'll only have the strength and numbers if they bring in JT. Stephen has a big-boy crush on JT; he's a HUGE physical asset, and truthfully I don't believe Stephen would use the idol to save Taj (even though she entrusted him with it) without a sure thing: JT.

ALLIANCE! BRING IN JT!

People who MUST GO AWAY SOON include Coach, and Tyson from Timbira and Erinn (is she gone yet?) and Sydney and a couple more miscellaneous white guys from Jalapao whose names I've forgotten.



So, [livejournal.com profile] furies? Other watchers? Let's hear your thoughts and favorites and predictions?

Spoilers (through the aired eps, not the kind from oddsmakers and tabloids) are as always to be expected, and welcomed, in comments.

Survivors ready? GO!

Douche? You don't mean Coach, do you?

I want them to fold in JT HARDCORE, but otherwise I'd take... the other dude who stayed standing in the heavy-lifting thing. Is his name Joe?

I picked that up from the TWOP recaps, I think. :/

I don't remember. I still haven't learned everyone's name. Give me another two episodes.
