This season of “The Amazing Race” pits six long-term couples against five pairings of people that met at the starting line. And while three of the couples have been eliminated, all five of the “blind date” teams are still in contention. Which one of this quintet is your favorite? And do you think they will win the “Race”?
Cast your vote in our poll at the bottom of this post. Then make your predictions as to what will happen on tonight’s show and you could win our weekly prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate and a place of honor on our reality TV leaderboards. It’s fun and easy!
Of the four legs to date, only one has been won by a duo of long-term daters: truck stop duo Rochelle and Mike surprised even themselves with their first place finish in leg three. Legal eagles Jelani and Jenny won both the first and second legs while blonde daters Bergen and Kurt took the last leg.
However, neither of these newly formed teams is being touted by our users as the most likely to finish first this week. Rather, our odds favor first place going to the blind daters Tyler and Laura, who both hail from Southern California.
Along with Bergen and Kurt, another random coupling, Blair and Hayley, sits in the sights of many of our users to be eliminated tonight. After voting in our poll for your favorite blind date couple, be sure to make your prediction as to which team will be eliminated.
Who do you think will falter at this stage of the game? Let’s take a look at who our contest leaders have in their sights.
Our overall leader, Magic 8 Ball, is predicting it will be the end of the road for Rochelle and Mike (odds of 12/1). However, the most recent weekly winner, Kyle Bailey, forecasts a last place finish for the newly engaged Matt and Ashley (8/1).
While both of these couples 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 12/1, I would earn 6,000 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.)
