The Amazing Race 4: Tian’s Model BehaviorPage 2

The final team making this portion of the list is… Mille and Chuck. While Millie did get a mite more aggressive, their overall innocent nature once again won out. And speaking of Millie’s aggression, I just have to say, I think it was all appropriate. After all, she wasn’t to blame for the whole Chip incident in the first place in my opinion. Chuck is the driving force behind this team. I mean, this kid’s a trooper. Not only does he seem to do most of the work, he’s a nice guy as well. And who could ask for more than that?
Teams I Half Love
Tian and Jaree. You’re so close. Tian, you know I love you. But Jaree is holding you both back, not only on my list, but in the race as well. If this team consisted of Tian and Tian, you’d shoot up faster than you can imagine. But, for reasons stated above, Jaree is the hindering factor here.
Another team to fall in this category is David and Jeff. While we still didn’t hear much from these too, I’ve begun to get something out of them. In their opening, they stated that they aren’t aiming for first or second, but to stay in the game at this point. I think they thought it was going to be a walk in the park, but it hasn’t been. Their modesty was nice to hear. I also have to say that I’m glad they are in the process of dropping Reichen and Chip. They’re no good for you too anyways.
Teams I Hate
The patriarchs of this group are, of course, Josh and Dave. In my eyes, they only continued as the show’s resident villains. I cringe each time I see them on stage. When Josh opens his mouth, I start to get nauseous. I mean, they are so loud and annoying. When Josh screamed like an idiot when they won the Fast Forward, I wanted to die. I can’t wait until these two get eliminated. That day can’t come soon enough.
New members to this group include Reichen and Chip. And to think of the high hopes I had for this group. To be fair, they are mostly here because of Chip. Reichen’s scholarly comment at the beginning (“We don’t want to come across as arrogant, we just think we’re going to win.”) didn’t help. But Chip’s abuse of Millie definitely was inappropriate. She’s a lady, Chip. Treat her like one. If Chuck weren’t so quiet and nice, I’m sure he’d kick your ass. Also, I was a little creeped out by Chip in this episode. He’s very intense. Like when they had to get out of the fiacre, he kept showing his “rage.” It was kind of scary.
The final team to make this list is Russell and Cindy. While they are gone, I have to give them their due anyway. This is truly where they belong. Their constant bickering was just annoying. Russell, I want to say to you, you’re not always right. Cindy, I want to say to you, you don’t have a shot with Russell. If you could both accept these facts, you’d be much healthier people. But, alas, you’re gone, so I won’t have to worry any longer.
As you’ve seen this week, one episode can send a team flying anywhere in the hearts of the viewers. Who will be in our hearts next week? And who will we want to strangle? Tune in Thursday to find out, and check back with me afterwards to get my thoughts.
