Andy and Tommy finally make it to the Pit Stop after everyone else is long gone. "Found it!" Andy chirps bravely in the face of the grave look Phil is giving them. He tells them they were unbelievable throughout the race, "But unfortunately you are the last team to arrive." And thus they are Philiminated. They shake his hand, and Phil says he thought for sure they'd be in the final three. So did they, but they seem to be taking it pretty well. Andy interviews about how it was the experience of a lifetime, and he got to do it with Tommy and "experience God's awesome creation." And God says, "Psych!"
Time for the big talk from the final three teams going into the finale. Jeremy talks about how hard it is to throw a new relationship into the race, but they're working better together now. Ernie says that Cindy's habit of being "concise and methodical" has worked well for them and should continue to do so. Amani says the race has been a lesson for their children. "The word 'I can't' did not exist for us." Well, that's because it's two words. That's an English lesson for her children. Sandy says she and Jeremy are going to win, which is the opposite of what she usually says. Ernie says they have more than what it takes as long as they don't "goof up." And Marcus vows that Team Pollard (by which he means Amani and himself) will win the amazing Race. I'm not going to get on board with any of these predictions, because I really don't know. Honestly, I think it's anyone's race at this point. Well, except Jeremy and Sandy's.
