Okay, two problems. First, I spelled her name wrong, just this one time. ["Hey, it's not like I caught it either." -- Sars] And I meant by this that they weren't going to be on very much. Good call!
"There's room for everyone. And keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle, too. What were you, born in a barn? Your face will freeze that way. There goes my mind, wandering again. At any rate, I'm still right about the cab-stealing. The availability of ground transportation, after all, has yet to be a major factor in this race."
Again, I think we should all pause and compliment me on my prescience. Obviously, there was no point during the race when your ability to grab a cab at a crucial moment was important. Boy, I love it when I know what I'm talking about. They should put me in charge of this show.
"HOWEVER, listen to Joe and Drew being interviewed as the episode closes. They both say basically the same thing -- all they have to worry about is making it to the final three. Put that together with Esquire's absolute lack of interest in the relative position of itself and Danza, and I'll give you a guess (first suggested by Miss Alli's Mom): The final three are re-bunched and start from scratch for the last two episodes, with no existing leads maintained. That would be a very reasonable hedge on the producers' part against the possibility that somebody would come up with a large lead, and it would also go along with one of the main themes of this show, which has been that Bill and Joe cannot be prevented from winning, no matter what, because they have -- say it with me -- the Luck of the Evil. Unless you get a fresh start at the front end of the last leg, Bill and Joe are going to have a hard time winning, and since I've got them pegged as the winners, I think this must be the way it goes."
Again, please stand back and be in awe of my predictive and analytical abilities. The blinding glow they create may hurt your eyes.
So that's the dish. Thanks to everybody who made the TARcon a success, including and especially the contestants, who have helped make this a very interesting season, to say the least. To everyone else, we still have a few things up our Mighty Big Sleeves to close out the season, and then we'll see you all back here for TAR 2.
