yeah. It will be quite even this time. Any of the remaining 3 have an equal chance of winning.

It was just so heartbreaking to see the way Derek and Drew were trying to keep their hopes up, praying that it's a non elimination leg even when they knew they were last...

I HOPE THE OLD COUPLE WILL WIN, THEY ARE GREAT FOR THEIR AGE!!! ITS A PITY FOR THE TWINS, BUT I SAY THAT THE FEELING OF GETTING FOURTH IS REAL BAD, FIFTH IS BETTER......... IT IS A MATTER OF LUCK ONLY THIS TIME, PERPHAPS THEY ARE UNLUCKY??? WHO KNOWS?? BUT THEY DID A GREAT JOB!

Yoffy lifts a finger...
I thin only the first place teams wins any money so it would make no difference to me personally to finish anywhere other than first.
On Survivor, the higher you place the more moeny you get but I'm not sure that's the case on this show.

The race is back!
I just don't know, fluff. I know they get the "vacation" while they're sequestered, so maybe that's the payoff. Plus, of course, they get a per diem for having to take time off work...But since all teams are gone the same amount of time, regardless of where they were eliminated, then they all get the same amount of money for their per diem.

about the non-elimination thing
I really don't understand why the third non-elimination leg is put so late. It seems to me that it is not necessary to put an non-eliminated leg in the last two hours. Originally posted by RacheL It was just so heartbreaking to see the way Derek and Drew were trying to keep their hopes up, praying that it's a non elimination leg even when they knew they were last...
For the next 2-hours episode, if there is an elimination leg, it means there are only two team for the last hour which is very unexciting as we can easily figure out who will be the winner.
Then what's the point to put an non-eliminated leg in the 12th episode???? So strange !!!!

I think the main reason they do it this way is so that all of the eliminated teams can be at the finish line together. If they eliminated a team in the first hour of the last episode, they would have a problem getting that team to the finish line in time.
Of course, in the first season, the Guidos weren't at the finish line, because they were out in the middle of Nowhere, Alaska, and couldn't get back in time.

well, it's the first time a senior team reaches the final three. I wonder how it would turn out.

For the record, Ian is 50 and Teri is 49 according to the CBS site, so while Ian is on AARP's mailing list (my parents both started getting mail from AARP right around their 50th birthdays) I'm not sure either would appreciate being called "seniors" though they would acknowledge that they are older than their competition. I'm thrilled to see Teri and Ian make it this far and would be happy if they won the race.
Derek and Drew, back on point, did a good job of recovering from their early miscues. They ran a clean race and should be proud of their performance. I'm not disappointed that they didn't win though because I didn't want a third consecutive season of young males winning this show on their physical dominance. Also, you've got to wonder about their judgment with their inability to recognize Flo for her true shrew after spending all that time around her. Huh, she's nice, I'll flirt with her? Drew should be smart enough to know he can do much better.
