I've come up with a new rule for myself when it comes to watching The Amazing Race
--don't like or pull for a certain team. Because every time I start pulling for a team, they will lose. I was rooting for Ryan and Chuck, who got eliminated in week one and then this week, the team I wanted to see stay around a lot longer, Debbie and Bianca
, were eliminated. And they teased me so with the "may be eliminated" wording of the last clue before the pit stop. Man, that was just cruel to make me hope that maybe, just maybe team "cute girls from Viriginia" would somehow pull off an upset and stay in the race. Or at least beat out Patrick and his mother, who are starting to grate on my last nerve.
That said, Debbie and Bianca did seal their own fate. Now, I went to high school in Woodbridge, VA, (where Team Cutie hails from) and we did learn to read maps in school. So, really no excuse for getting so far off course. Also, you gotta have respect that one of them could chow down on four pounds of meat while manly men like Boston Rob couldn't handle it. I have to admit that it was interesting to see Rob and Amber finding ways to play the other teams and to ensure that they stay in the Race. Rob's idea of let's take the penalty and not chow down on four pounds of meat was a good one. Also, I'd hate to have to be the team member who had to run after chowing down four pounds of meat. And to be a bit crude here--I hope whatever hotel they stay for this pit stop has a whole lot of plungers...cause they're going to need them.
