I thought , in the end, The Chippies decided to U-Turn Abbie and Ryan because Jaymes said as much as he hated doing it it was based on his belief Ryan and Abbie were a threat and at this point it had sunk in that his Dad really needed the money for cancer treatment and helping his Dad would be life changing for his family and therefore that took presidency over how Abbie and Ryan would react to the U-Turn. Didn't Jaymes (or James) say he wrote his Dad from the competition to promise him he would win? At least they genuinely struggled over their decision to U-Turn and I appreciated and respected them for expressing genuine moral angst. I know lots of this is about strategy and game play, but I tend to react to and have affinity for teams who are genuinely decent at the expense of game play. None of the other teams, except for maybe the goat farmers, would have thought twice about pulling a U-Turn so Ryan and Abbies sour grapes rang hollow. Ryan was so dead set on getting that two million there`s no way he would not have U-Turned his `friends` the chippies, if it was to his benefit. How funny would it be, in the best way possible, if it comes down to The Chippies and The Goat Farmers ? Good Lord, I was even worried The Goat Farmers were going to cave in and help Ryan and Abbie rather than go to the next check in. You could see one of the farmers wavering. BTW, liked seeing The farmers do so well on the pole jump across the moat. I had a good laugh watching Ryan struggle on that part-his ego is so huge, that's why.
