And the dancing gets all elegiac and slow-mo as Amanda and Kris finally come in, to a welcome and a round of applause from the dancers. Phil tells them they're the last to arrive, which is a surprise to neither of them. And they are Philiminated. So that's all of the dating and married couples out, one after another. Does this season have it in for the breeders, or what? Of course, it's tough to say whether the U-Turn made a difference, since they had been in last place for a while, but if anyone could have screwed up enough to be overtaken, it obviously would have been the Stuntmen. I guess we'll never know. In their interview, Amanda says the best part of the Race was traveling with Kris. "We've done everything together but travel, and to finally get to do that together has been awesome." Kris adds, "I'm so deeply in love with her, it's ridiculous." Amanda predicts that they'll be together for the rest of their lives. Well, I can't see any reason why not.
