Who do you think will be eliminated on this Friday’s episode of “The Amazing Race“? Last week, many of our savvy users correctly pegged Bergen and Kurt as the most likely to be axed. And that came despite this blind date pair having started the leg in first place.
This week, our odds favor that Rochelle and Mike will be the last to reach the finish line. Despite their first place finish in episode three, this dating couple has odds of 10/3 to be eliminated after being second last to the mat last week. The only way they could be saved if this is a non-elimination leg. And, according to a sizeable number of our users, that is the likely outcome of Friday’s episode with odds of 4/1.

I am not convinced that either of these scenarios will play out. It could be too soon for another non-elimination leg. And Rochelle and Mike are getting along well.
The same cannot be said of blind daters Jelani and Jenny, who went from two successive first place finishes to third and then seventh. Maybe I should put my 500 point super bet on them being eliminated. At their current odds of 9/2, I would earn 2,250 points if they end up being axed. (You also get two super bets of 200 points each every week; the other questions are set at 100 points per.)
Our odds favor first place going to blind daters Tyler and Laura. And our predictors are also backing dating couple Aly and Steve, who won the last leg. Conversely, these two teams are longshots for elimination at 33/1 each. But if I predict one of them to falter and they end up being last, I would rack up a ton of points.
Let’s take a look at who our contest leaders have in their sights.
