Why? Because your predictions will factor into our official racetrack odds that are pored over by other “Race” fans and TV execs who want to know which teams you love and hate, who you want to win and who you are desperate to see get a send-off. 

To make your weekly predictions, just log in to your account (or create a free one), click on “The Amazing Race” button and start these answering questions:

Which team will be eliminated in this leg?

Which team will place first in this leg?

Which team will win Date Night?

Will the Express Pass be used?

Which team will win ‘The Amazing Race’?

Answer our questions before every episode and you will earn points based on correct predictions. The deadline for the upcoming double-header is Friday at 5 p.m. PT. Be sure to answer all questions for both episode seven (“Back in Business”) and episode eight (“Look at Those Guns”). 

Only 2% of our users correctly pegged Jackie and Jeffrey as the most likely to be axed this week. Likewise, just 5% of our users foresaw that first win for Blair and Hayley, who were rewarded with a trip to South Africa for their efforts. 

Our editor, Marcus James Dixon, topped the leaderboard this week despite getting both of those questions wrong. However, he nailed the other three by correctly predicting that the Express Pass would not be used, that there would not be a U-Turn and that Tyler and Laura would win Date Night. 

Eleven of our users got two of the five weekly questions right. Of these, Connordapianist broke the tie by racking up the most points of this quartert. He savvily placed his 500-point superbet on Blair and Hayley winning this leg when they had odds of 33/1. That earned him a jaw-dropping 16,500 points. 

If he is eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win the $100 Amazon gift certificate. 

Despite only going two for five this week, JasonNolette remains in first place on our overall leaderboard with an overall average of 60% correct.

However, Vinny and Magic 8 Ball are closing in, with 55% each. And Magic 8 Ball has a staggering 53,095 points which could give her the edge if there is a tie to be broken.
