Now about having Brenden and Rachel win...well I'd only wish that IF the cowboys or the Afganimals don't win. So basically they are my 3rd choice. Ideally I'd like to see the racers go out in this order:
The blondes next because I honestly don't think they deserve to be anywhere near the finale. They can't do a blessed thing by themselves.
Then Dave and Carter, because just missing out on the finale and having to watch the winners from the sidelines would suck ()
Then Brenchel, because they are annoying sometimes and I don't like the way he talks to her at times.
Then either the Afghanimals or Cowboys for the win. Cowboys because I love their dry sense of humour, I love their refusing to get down in the mud with the rest of the children when it comes to drama, and the way they work so well together and are so respectful. Afghanimals because now that they have toned down their manic behaviour (or else I've just gotten used to it!) their fun spirits and sense of joy is infectious, and I love how they really seem to LOVE the race, every single moment of it.
