If I ruled the world, you wouldn't be able to make a sequel to anything with "Final" in the title. Sorry, Final Fantasy. Too bad, Final Destination.

Prequels, maybe. But then you couldn't use "Final" in the prequel title. "Penultimate Fantasy" could be worked with.


Amazing Race, however, has no problems in this regard. I'll admit that there are times when the racing isn't as interesting as the trainwreck of a team self-destructing. "Around the World with Three Changes of Clothing" might be more accurate, but doesn't get the 18th century hymn pun in there. And that's important, I know.


This is all leadin for my guesses as to who's going to fall when.

Next to go:

  1. Fran & Barry
  2. Lisa & Joni
  3. David & Lori
  4. Lake & Michelle
  5. Danielle & Dani
  6. Joseph & Monica
  7. Wanda & Desiree
  8. Ray & Yolanda
  9. BJ & Tyler
  10. Eric & Jeremy


One of my ex-cow-orker friends really really hates BJ & Tyler ("the hippies"). I hope to see them make it to the last show, mostly to annoy my friend.

Understandable. For many of us there is simply no substitute for the Bear.

I fervently hope that Wanda and Desiree get kicked off next. All that squealing like a stuck pig gave me a headache, and I so did not need to hear about them pissing their pants as they got onto the helicopter.

The hippie dudes were cool, I hope they last a bit longer, and I thought for sure the older couple was going to come in last -- just shows how well I can pick em.

Yeah, that's Lisa and Joni - I can see them dropping out really quick. Before the old couple? I don't know.

Wanda and Desiree (the mother/daughter that speak Spanish) seem OK to me - the mom's a little excitable, but I think they'll have an advantage through South America into Europe.

And here I thought Lisa and Joni where the mother/ daughter pair. I'm so bad with names with they first start out.

Was Lake the guy who said he'd help the older couple at the motorcycle shop, and then got ansty?

Lake ("Like the ocean") was the Dentist. I forget if he helped the old couple or not. Lake reminds me of "Bluehair" from a couple seasons ago - the guy who was abusive to his wife.

Was "Bluehair" Jonathan from season 6 who Phil had to actually say "go comfort your wife" to? He was awful.

I'd like to do this one day -- I adore Phil; it's just a matter of a) waiting for my kid to be old enough or b) finding someone whose not afraid of traveling to do it with.

Jonathan from season 6

Yeah, that's the guy. I was relieved to see that team fall, just because it was so unpleasant to see how he treated his wife.

Yeah, I'm not all that good even as time goes on. My "research" for this post was pretty much just looking here:

That's why you have to give all the teams nicknames. In the early part of the season, that's really the best part.

Hm....

There are a lot of team name candidates mentioned on the show that I don't like ("Glamazons", "Ken and Barbie", "Double D"). And I hesitate to make fun of the pudgy, pasty, geeky team for any of these characteristics.

But my suggestion for a nickname for Lake and Michelle, that plays off the similarity to Jonathan's personality from before and off Lake's profession as a dentist is this: Team BlueTooth.
