According to predictions made so far in our contest, it looks like tonight's episode of "The Amazing Race" will be the end of the road for Cindy and Rick. The newlyweds, who narrowly escaped elimination last week, have odds of 3 to 2 to be bounced from the race this Friday.
Cheerleaders Tiffany and Krista — who finished fifth out of eight teams lave week — have odds of 27 to 10 to be ejected from the race in this week's episode, "'My Tongue Doesn't Even Twist That Way'," which sees the teams travel from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe to Paris, France. (Click on the chart to the left to see the odds and rankings for elimination as well as the winners of this leg and the season.)
At the end of the fifth episode last Friday, Denise and James used the Express Pass given to them by Tanner and Josh to skip ahead and be first to the pit stop. However, we don't expect them to stay at the front of the peak. Rather, Tanner and Josh are predicted to fight it out for first with their nemeses Justin and Diana.
