RNO Roundtable: Who Will Win ‘The Amazing Race 4’?Page 2
View Printable version of this article
Sometimes each member of a team brings something different. For the team that you picked as your favorite, what does each member of the team have to offer?
Betsy: I think in general the two of them balance each other out well. When Reichen is freaking out, Chip will calm him down, and vice versa.
Melinda: This is a tough question, because I think that both David & Jeff have very similar personalities and abilities. The only difference I noticed was last week when one of them, I think it was Jeff, was more of a surfer than David, but David was an excellent swimmer.
Paris: I think Kelly has the spark and drive to win the race and John has the intelligence. I'm not by any means saying Kelly isn't intelligent. I think she's rash and has a ton of ambition whereas Jon is more of a "slow and steady wins the race" type of guy. I would love to see these two win.
Phil: Jon brings on the humor. It’s funny to watch him tease the other teams and Kelly. He takes the race for what it’s worth and does it all while having a good time. Kelly is more intense than I think most give her credit for. She is there to win and prove that she is not as weak as people may think. Her drive complements Jon’s strength and ability to quickly complete challenges. They are a perfect team.
Sting7: Reichen & Chip are fiercely loyal to each other, not afraid of a confrontation, and they are both intelligent and play to each other strengths.
With a few good reasons, who would you really not like to see win the race?
Betsy: David & Jeff. They've survived for a long time on luck in spite of some really dumb mistakes. Do we really want the winner of the race to be the team that couldn't find the wheelbarrow with the clues without help? I'd rather see Chip & Reichen win, because they deserve it, or Kelly & Jon, because at least Phil will be happy.
Melinda: The team that I would most like to see not win the race would be Reichen & Chip for the simple reason that they are so uptight and always have a huge chip on their shoulders (no pun intended) about being gay. They came to the race with the conviction that: 1. The outside world hates gays, and, 2. The other racers would automatically give them trouble about it. Of course, Jon, a world class smartass and agitator, has been happy to oblige them, resulting in last week’s macho baiting and chest beating at the office tower rappel challenge. Taken as a whole, Reichen & Chip’s surliness and animosity towards the other racers has left a bad taste in my mouth.
Paris: I don't think I would like to see David & Jeff win the race. And, honestly, it's only because it seems as though they've just recently signed up. It's sort of like they appeared out of nowhere a few weeks ago. I don't feel like I really know how they've played. I wouldn't be upset to see them win, like I would have been if Tara & Wil had won, but it wouldn't be as exciting as seeing Flo & Zack win. Hate them or love them? We just don't know them.
Phil: Of the three teams left, I would least like to see the Goats win. I don’t really have anything against them, but they are constantly screwing up and getting lost. It’s almost as if they are just floating around. I mean, when they couldn’t find the one clue in the wheelbarrow when the Clowns sat there and pointed it out to them, I wanted to reach through the TV and slap them! They just don’t race that well and I think they deserve to win the least.
Sting7: I have no problem with anyone left.
Do you think that any of the eliminated teams should be in the final three? If so, who do you think they most deservingly should replace?
Betsy: The Clowns, without a doubt. Even though Al & Jon are older than the other teams that remain, they were just as strong. Also, they consistently made smart decisions, but above all, they handled stress better than any other team. No matter how bad things got, they were able to laugh and smile together. I'd put them in place of David & Jeff.
Melinda: I don’t think that any of the eliminated teams deserve to be in the final three with the obvious exception of the Clowns. I would have liked to see some of the other teams get a little further in the race, like the team that messed up so badly at the masked ball challenge in Venice where the guy took three turns to match the photo the masked dancer and lost a huge amount of time!
Paris: No, I don't think so. Each team got themselves into the final three by working their butts off and overcoming the challenges of being involved in the race. Each of the top three deserve to be there.
Phil: Actually, I do. I think that Millie & Chuck deserve to be there instead of the Goats. I’m not a big Chillie fan, but I do think they had the determination to take it all the way. They were just so fatigued by the end of the leg they were eliminated that they didn’t even seem to be giving it 100%. They raced well the whole time and fell victim to bad luck. I do feel that they should be there instead of David & Jeff.
Sting7: I thought The Supremes were so gutsy, and it was just a bit of bad luck that got them out. Too bad, really.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
