Did you foresee which of the six teams competing in “I Have a Wedgie and a Half,” the eighth leg of “The Amazing Race,” was going to be first to the mat? If you got the result right, why are you not taking part in our predictions contest? Every week, someone will take top place on our leaderboards. Do you have what it takes to be the best among the most fervent fans of the “Race”?
To get started CLICK HERE or scroll down and make your first prediction using our easy drag-and-drop menu. Don’t worry, you can keep changing your predictions right up until show time. But we urge you not to wait till then.
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.
As you can see from the chart to the left, 38% of our readers already taking part in our predictions contest had foreseen that professional firsbee players Kurt and Brodie would come in first.
However, we collectively underestimated dating gamers Burnie and Ashley who finished right behind them in second place. That marked their third runner-up slot in a row.
Conversely, we overestimated best friends Tyler and Korey, who were third to the mat. They started off the race as strong competitors but have faltered as of late and ended up in sixth place last week, narrowly avoiding elimination.
There was no elimination this week with mother/son pairing Sheri and Cole once again avoiding ejection as this was a non-elimination leg.
