We’re almost there. After Colin Guinn and Christie Woods continued the streak of “Amazing Race” wins winning legs on Wednesday’s episode, we are one week and one elimination away from a final three of “Race” teams.
The only non-“Race” team left is Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo, who edged out Team Fun, Becca Droz and Floyd Pierce, on Leg 10 after both were victims of the Double U-Turn. Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, and the Afghanimals, Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, round out the final four.
The preview teased that Tyler and Korey want an all-“TAR” final three, and according to Vicole, the three “TAR” teams are working together to ensure that happens. Cold, but understandable. I’m sure it’s nothing personal against Nic and Vic, since they all seem to get along, but it’s that “TAR” pride where you’re rooting for your brethren. It’d be no different if another “Big Brother” team or another non-“Race” team were still in it and banded with Nic and Vic as the non-“Race” underdogs. Hell, the “Big Brother” teams already made that loose and short-lived alliance earlier this season.
Nicole and Victor, obviously, are also the only team left not to have won a leg, though they have four second-place finishes to their name. As the most well-adjusted of the non-racers, they ran some good legs and probably deserved a win or two, but you still have to go out and get it. And for all the talk about if they feel like a “Race” team yet, being the ones to crash a dream all-“Race” final three is a fab way to do that. If they don’t make the final three, this will guarantee a “Race” team victory.
“The Amazing Race” two-hour finale airs Wednesday at 9/8c on CBS.
