What absolutely will defy my understanding to my dying day (on top of ‘I’m taking my pants off’, is how Justin let their cab go.

He’s a superfan, the number of times he’s seen a team get dicked on the race by letting their cab go is large and mighty. It is Death, and yet he knowingly sends the cabbie away.

I can only assume it was a function of killer fatigue… but damn. Every time he has money troubles for the REST OF HIS LIFE he’s going to remember that he ‘saved’ $50 dollars and threw away $900K in the process.

Ouch.

Not only does the history of the Race tell you it’s Death, but he is a New Yorker who relies on mass transportation frequently in a location he has been to before. He had to know that it would not be easy to get a cab from there.

My only answer (apart from KF) is that stealing another team’s cab was actually his back-up plan all along, and when it failed he had no Plan C. Either way, it was one of the dumbest mistakes I’ve seen all season, and I’d extend that back further if not for Kurt and Bergen abandoning their car by the side of the road in Germany. :)

Joey and Kelsey wasn’t the ones I expected to win the race since they were really bland. There was nothing to distingish them from the other teams, apart from their lack of personality, in my opinion. They seemed to be out of focus for the entire series.They remind me of how Captain Hero was introduced in the first episode of Drawn Together (“Another person in the house”)

Also, I can’t help but wonder if the editors played Justin up as a dick the last few episodes to draw attention away from the trainwreck that is Logan and Chris. Of course, if they did, then they failed.

I thought of Kelsey & Joey as really, really white. Because of the caps with their names on them. And then Joey posed with Ernest’s chain. Major honkey move.

Given the final lineup, it was the best possible result imho. Sure, the reporters were bland, but the fact that they weren’t mean to each other puts them ahead of the other two pairs.

I’m sure a lot of the joy from the other teams was just because the winners were anyone but Justin or the papparazi.

Marionette . . . I think the Texans would have been a better match for Green and Reporters. If they hadn’t went sightseeing in Paris, we might’ve had a different race.

I would have been happy for the reporters or Green Team (even if Justin’s a somewhat annoying narcissist, they earned it), but I was really pulling for the cheerleaders, by the time they were eliminated.

I watched the whole race in a 24 h period yesterday. Besides being a questionable exercise in time management, I found it interesting how doing it in one go had me switching favorites more often than usual; I particularly warmed to Team Texas and the aforementioned cheerleaders more than I thought I would.
